Invasion of Europe news…..
I’m sure you’ve seen the news over the last day or so, but am posting links for those who haven’t.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel with refugee. This ‘selfie’ should go down in political strategists’ training manuals as an example of what NOT to do with refugees from the Middle East.
First from Reuters (Syrian refugee kills a pregnant woman with a machete):
A 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested on Sunday after killing a pregnant woman with a machete in Germany, the fourth violent assault on civilians in western Europe in 10 days, though police said it did not appear linked to terrorism. [No terrorism, so move along!—ed]
The incident, however, may add to public unease surrounding Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door refugee policy that has seen over a million migrants enter Germany over the past year, many fleeing war in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.
German police said they arrested the machete-wielding Syrian asylum-seeker after he killed a woman and injured two other people in the southwestern city of Reutlingen near Stuttgart.
Continue reading the discussion about Merkel’s open door policy and the political turmoil it is creating in Germany.
Then, over the same weekend, a Syrian suicide bomber explodes his backpack outside of a music event in a Bavarian town. From Russia Today:
Bavarian authorities have announced that the suspected suicide bomber, who was killed in the Ansbach explosion, was a 27-year-old Syrian whose asylum request was rejected last year. The motive behind the attack, which injured 12 people, remains unknown.
The attacker was a 27-year-old Syrian who had entered the country about two years ago, but was refused asylum, Bavarian authorities told a press conference. His application was rejected a year ago but the man was allowed to stay in Germany temporarily, due to ongoing hostilities in Syria.***
The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees will reveal why the suspect’s asylum application had previously been rejected later in the day Herrmann (Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann) noted that those who are “seeking protection in Germany, must show full respect for the German legal system and the German population.”
The minister added that the attack demonstrated the need “to strengthen controls on those we have living in our country”.
Following a press conference, Herrmann told Germany’s DPA, that he personally considers the bombing in Ansbach to have been the work of an Islamist suicide bomber.
“My personal opinion is that, unfortunately I think, it is very obvious that there has been a real Islamist suicide attack here,” Herrmann said early Monday.
Any bets on when Germany will get the big one—like in France or Belgium!

***By the way, this happens in the US too. If someone is denied asylum, but they come from a country in turmoil, we don’t deport them either!
