Syrian Bomber Kills Self, Wounds 12, in Fourth Muslim Attack in a Week in Southern Germany

Monday, July 25th, 2016

A Syrian man, 27, who had been refused asylum in Germany, killed himself on Sunday with a bomb he set off near a music festival in Ansbach, Bavaria, in southern Germany. This is the fourth violent attack by Muslims in southern Germany in less than a week. According to police, 12 people were injured in the explosion, three seriously. According to state officials, the man had been denied entry to the music festival just before the explosion.

The Syrian man was carrying a backpack filled with explosives and metal parts, in what officials are saying could have been an ISIS-inspired attack. Officials also said the man had arrived in Germany two years ago and this was his third suicide attempt.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann told reporters early Monday that it was not yet certain whether the man had planned to “take others with him into death.”

Police evacuated more than 2,000 people from the festival after the explosion, and cordoned off a large area around the explosion site.

According to Reuters, citing a US intelligence official (The US maintains an Army base in Ansbach), investigators are focusing on the bomber’s history before he left Syria, the reasons he was denied asylum, and why he blew himself up — was it personal, political, religious, or all three.

Last week an Afghan refugee used an axe and a knife to injured a family of four on a train in southern Germany before being shot dead by police. On Friday, nine people were killed and more than 20 injured by an Iranian in Munich, also in southern Germany. Earlier on Sunday, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested after killing a pregnant woman and wounding two people with a machete in the southwestern city of Reutlingen, near Stuttgart.

Watch: Munich Killer Ali Sonboli Had Shouting Match with German Truck Driver [video]

Sunday, July 24th, 2016

According to the German newspaper Das Bild, the deadly Munich shooting that claimed the lives of 10 people and injured 27 was the work of an 18-year-old German citizen of Iranian origin named Ali David Sonboli.

Bild released a video after the shooting, with the loud shouting match between the shooter, who was pacing on the top floor of a nearby parking garage, and Thomas Selby, 57, a truck driver who was looking at him from his balcony.

Selby told Bild: “I was having a beer after work and I heard gunshots. First they were at the McDonalds – boom, boom, boom. Then people were running out of the parking lot. It’s right under my house. I looked from my balcony and saw him reloading his pistol. I threw my beer bottle at him. It broke on the roof.”

Their calls back and forth, including a third person who joined in, were captured on video. The following is a translation from the German transcript:

Neighbor: “You’re a son of a [expletive].”

Shooter: “Because of you I’ve been abused for seven years.”

Neighbor: “You’re a son of a [expletive].”

Shooter: “And now I have to buy a pistol in order to shoot you.”

Neighbor: “A pistol? Go [expletive] yourself.”

Shooter: “I’m German.”

Neighbor: “You’re a son of a [expletive], that’s what you are.”

Shooter: “Stop taking pictures.”

Neighbor: “You son of a [expletive], what are you doing?”

Shooter: “I was born here.”

Third voice: “[Expletive] foreigners.”

Neighbor: “What the hell do you think you’re doing.”

Shooter: “I grew up here in Hartz IV (a welfare neighborhood).”

Neighbor: “You’re a son of a [expletive], you.”

Shooter: “You’re right, you’re right, you’re right.”

Terror Shooting at Munich Mall, Site Where Israeli Athletes Were Murdered in Olympic Village

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

At least nine people died Friday night, among them a 15-year-old girl, in a terror attack at the Olympia Shopping Mall, built on the site of the Olympic village where 11 Israeli athletes were murdered by Arab terrorists in 1972.

The Arab Black September terrorist group took the Israeli athletes hostage and murdered them during the 1972 Olympic Games held at the Olympic Stadium next door to the mall where three shooters with “long-barreled rifles” opened fire at shoppers and employees.

It is not known how many more people were injured at the mall, located in the north-western Moosach district of Munich, Germany.

Officials locked down and declared a state of emergency in the city as security personnel broadened their manhunt for the terrorists believed to be on the run after their attack. It came just two days after a government minister had warned of more “lone wolf” attacks after a terror attack on a train earlier in the week.

The crowded shopping center was jammed with customers throughout the 135 stores and eateries on both floors when the shooters entered at around 6 pm.

Many customers and employees were still in the mall after the terrorists fled on foot, possibly entering a nearby metro train. The area around the mall was sealed off by police but the attackers managed to escape.

The German government requested additional security forces from neighboring Austria as its government lowered its flag to half mast to honor the memories of the victims. Massive numbers of heavily armed special operations forces, Munich police and other security officers converged on the city. Taxi drivers were warned not to pick up passengers.

Public transportation was shut down, including train, tram and bus lines in the city. The streets of Munich were virtually clear. Residents were asked to stay off the roadways and drivers have been asked to leave the highways around the city as well, Fox News reported.

At least some parts of the country’s border were sealed off in an attempt to prevent the terrorists from escaping Germany.

Police confirmed a report that one of the shooters shot and killed himself about a mile away from the mall. A backpack was located next to the deceased, however, prompting officials to send a robot to check the body and the bag in order to ensure there were no explosives.

An alert went out to doctors and nurses in Munich to report to their hospitals for a mass casualty attack. “Law enforcement is overwhelmed,” one security source told a news analyst at Fox News.

No terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks, although Da’esh (ISIS) supporters posted joyous tweets of celebration about the rampage. However, Fox News analyst Sebastian Gorka said a colleague in Germany who analyzed audio from the scene said one of the terrorists, who spoke in German, used an East German accent.

It’s not known whether there were Israelis or other Jews on the scene at the time of the attack, approximately an hour and a half before the start of the Jewish Sabbath.

The U.S. Consulate instructed American citizens to “shelter in place” and avoid the area.

German police requested that media refrain from posting any live coverage of events in order to prevent the attackers from receiving information about law enforcement counter terror movements.

This is the second terror attack in Germany in a week; an Afghan teenager wielded an ax on a train earlier in the week in an attempt to kill passengers in the country. Four people were physically injured and more than a dozen others suffered traumatic shock in that attack.

Friday was also the five-year anniversary of the massacre in Norway by Anders Behring Breivik, a far-right extremist. Anger against political refugees from the Middle East and Africa has been rising in the far-right sector.

On the Twitter social media networking site, some users were tweeting rumors that at least one of the attackers was wearing “black boots” and was screaming about “foreigners” and “refugees.” Officials said they are treating the event as a ‘terrorist attack’ but emphasized they had not yet identified the attackers.

Islamist Killer Yelled ‘Allahu Akbar!’ in Attack Near Munich

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

A 50-year-old Wasserburg man was murdered and three others wounded, one seriously, after being stabbed at around 5 am local time Tuesday at a railway station in the suburb of Grafing, 25 miles southeast of central Munich.

Witnesses allege the attacker yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (God is Great! in Arabic) during the incident, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.

The 27-year-old suspected attacker captured and arrested by German police shortly after “made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motive — apparently an Islamist motive,” said a spokesperson for the Bavarian prosecutors’ office who was quoted by The Guardian.

“We are still determining what the exact remarks were,” the spokesperson added. The railway station was cordoned off, leading to restrictions on the Munich S-Bahn rail network.

Germany is participating in the U.S.-led coalition fight against Da’esh (ISIS), which has methodically set about attacking targets in every country participating in the coalition air strikes against its bases in Syria.

Here Are The Lessons Israel Needs To Learn From The Holocaust

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Once a year the entire nation of Israel commemorated the six million that were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. At exactly 10:00 am, sirens sound throughout the Jewish State and most of Israel’s citizens (Except the Arabs who deny the Holocaust and some radical Ultra Orthodox Jews who call themselves religious) stood in silence to remember and give respect to those who were murdered, burned, gassed and dehumanized by the Nazis and their collaborators.

Some keep their eyes shut in total silence remembering a family member who was murdered and some whisper a prayer in honor of the six million innocent Jewish souls that were violently ripped from this world.

Most years, I belong to the second group, but this year, I was lost in thought asking myself, why? Why remember?

What is it about that horrible time in Jewish and human history that is so important to remember? My grandmother (Z”L) who survived numerous camps and saved other Jews will never be forgotten by me, so why is it important to have a national memory of such a tragedy? What exactly am I remembering?

Is there someone who actually believes that our memory will prevent another Holocaust from happening? Look around!

Syria is murdering tens of thousands of people by gas and chemical weapons, Russia is conquering Ukraine and let’s not even get started with the amount of people who are being slaughtered throughout Africa!

Has the world learned anything?

My answer is an absolute NOT A THING!

Obama is a joke and has threatened Syria time and time again that if they dare use chemical weapons, the US will be forced to react. Hello? Does Obama watch the news?

Some say that the Holocaust should not be mixed up with politics, I say WRONG! Only when we remember just how low human nature can stoop will one have total political clarity.

It is very important to remember an American President who flew fighter jets over the train tracks that led millions to their death in Auschwitz but refused to bomb them because he didn’t want political “trouble, or the silence of the world as millions of Jews were burned, gassed and shot. These facts gives us total political clarity and reality, Israel will protect itself!

On July 7, shortly after the U.S. War Department refused requests from Jewish leaders to bomb the railway lines leading to the camps, a force of 452 Fifteenth Air Force bombers flew along and across the five deportation railway lines on their way to bomb Blechhammer oil refineries nearby

To remember a British leader who met, shook hands and was actually on the brink of signing an agreement with Hitler because he didn’t believe Hitler was a real threat!

The Munich Agreement – “Peace In Our Time”

And let us not forget our Muslim neighbors who seek “peace” with the Jewish State and claim that all our problems started when the modern day State of Israel was born in 1948.

Taken in 1943! No State No Settlements Just Islamic Anti Semitism!

Brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers were burned, gassed and treated like animals and the world said NOTHING! Nothing from France, nothing from England, nothing from America, nothing from anyone!

What do I learn from the Holocaust? I learn that the State of Israel is the ONLY true safe haven for Jews and we cannot trust anyone with our safety, security, military or Jewish survival.

Barack Obama and John Kerry say they are our friends, but they have been pressuring Israel into handing over more parts of the Land of Israel to Muslim occupiers and have recently forced us to to agree to a ceasefire with a fanatic Islamic terrorists organization called HAMAS!

Instead of the US President and Vice president siding with the Jewish State that has the same basic values as the US, they have taken sides with the people who hold the same terrorist ideology that was responsible for the murder of over 3,000 people when they blew up the Twin Towers!

When Abu Mazen signs an agreement with the terrorist organization Hamas, John Kerry blames Israel and warns that if Israel doesn’t make peace (give in to their demands) soon, the Arabs will start killing Jews! Really? Does that sound like a friend to you? To me it sounds like blackmail!

This Is Hamas!

Then Kerry says it was Israel’s refusal to release terrorists as well as the building of houses and kindergartens in JERUSALEM that is to blame for the failed peace process. Of course the fact that Abu Mazen has completely refused to recognize a Jewish State has absolutely nothing to do with it, right John! I am not even going to get started with the Hamas missile fire that the White House said nothing about till Israel reacted!

When I say NEVER AGAIN! I mean it and the time is now! Unfortunately not only is the world ignoring the dangers Israel is facing, Israel’s leaders themselves are ignoring the imminent dangers and are dreaming of signing a “peace” deal with those who idea of peace is war.

Bibi, the Arabs have no right to this land! Can they live here in peace? Yes! The Druze do, The Christians do and yes, there are plenty of Muslim Arabs who just want to live, but the second they talk of a national country within the Land of Israel, it’s time to say it loud and clear, NO WAY!

Read Also: The History Of Palestine 101

The motto ‘NEVER AGAIN’ has nothing to do with the Nazis. They like the Romans, Greeks and the Mussolini’s are all gone.

Never again means we will never again be so naive to believe the world when they say they will do something about the powers of evil, especially when those powers threaten Israel or the Jews!

We now know that even our greatest allies and friends will fly right over our heads and ignore the flames that burn our flesh!

We know that their political standing is more important than morality and certainly more important than a couple of Jews burning or being blown up by Muslim terrorists.

What do I learn from the Holocaust? There is only God to rely on and he is given us back the Land Of Israel as well as the IDF so that NEVER AGAIN will this little boy march to his death with his hands up in the air!
