SOTG 425 - Is the EU covering up Islamic Terror

(Photo Source: Associated Press)

Despite nearly innumerable incidents of horror and gruesome murder carried out by Muslim Missionaries in Europe, government officials often refuse to acknowledge Islamic Terror as the cause and motive.

Professor Paul offers several examples for you to consider and to decide for yourself if the EU is trying to cover it up.

We have an extra special and topical “Go Team Moment” for you from Las Vegas, Nevada. A group of people playing a popular mobile phone game were targeted by thugs. The result was definitely unexpected.

From www.sofmag.com:

The Munich killer, 18 year old David Ali Sonly, German born with Iranian citizenship, who targeted teenagers in a mall, killing nine and injuring dozens had purchased the weapon illegally. The Glock 9mm pistol that Bavarian police identified as the murder weapon was a prop gun that had been reactivated. It was traced by police back to 2014 Slovakia and purchased illegally by the killer in Germany.

German authorities have, not unexpectedly, had the obvious knee jerk reaction: More gun laws. Understandably, authorities feel helpless to prevent such attacks by those who had no criminal record and not on law enforcement radars.

Germany has some of the strictest gun laws. Yet those in Germany own more illegal guns than legal ones. Possession of the large amount of ammunition the killer had is also illegal in Germany. The laws allow a restricted amount of ammunition depending on the circumstance. Along with the unlicensed Glock 9mm pistol, the killer had 300 rounds of ammunition in his backpack.

A Daily Mail UK headline reads: “The strictest firearms laws in Europe but STILL four illegal guns for every registered weapon: Germany has 5.5 million guns belonging to 1.4 million people (according to data from the German Firearms Register).” The article points out that research by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in January estimated there are up to 20 million illegal firearms in Germany.”

The German gun laws became stricter after several mass shootings in 2006 and 2009. The law was tightened to the point that authorities have the right to check on where guns are stored when not in use, including the right to make spot checks.

The large ownership of illegal weapons in the hands of those living in Germany can often be traced to the black market which is aided by the border free European Union (the 1985 Schengen Agreement that abolished internal borders of EU member countries).

The “dark web”, according to a Telegraph which referred to a Süddeustche Zeitung new report,” is ‘An area of the internet not accessible without special software, used by criminals and paedophile networks.’

“Our gun laws are already very strict, and I think this is correct,” German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said. “In Europe, we want to make further progress with a common weapons policy. First we have to determine how the Munich perpetrators procured a weapon. Then we have to look very carefully at where to make legal changes,” the Telegraph quoted the German Minister’s statement to Bild am Sonntag news.

Police report that their investigations found no trace or links back to ISIS or other terror groups, but police did find a disturbing trail of documents and tools that the killer had amassed in his room on mass murders and murderers. The attack was well planned and the strategy was being laid out for a year, according to the German news local.de. Sonly created a phony web page on which he posed as a pretty teenage girl “Selina Akim.” He lured his victims to the Mc Donalds, the scene of the rampage, with offer of free food.

“He had been preparing (the shooting) for a year,” Bavarian police chief Robert Heimberger confirmed to reporters.

In that time, Sonly had spent two months as an inpatient in a mental hospital and was being treated for depression among other mental ailments as an outpatient at the time of the shooting.

Supposedly Sonly was motivated by a right wing anti Islam, anti feminism hate monger and militant killer Anders Breivik, who also targeted young people according to local police. Breivik had staged two attacks including using a bomb in Oslo and guns in Utoya which killed 77 people five years earlier. Ali Sonly carried out his murder spree in Munich on 22 July, the anniversary of that savage massacre in Norway 22 July 2011.

Bavarian police confirmed that Ali Sonly was “obsessed” with mass killers such as Norwegian rightwing fanatic Anders Behring Breivik and had no links to the Islamic State group according to local.de which reconfirmed reports from multiple other journals including the Daily Mail, the Telegraph and more.

Officials did not clarify in the reports why having stricter gun laws would prevent massacres such as the one in Munich.

Nor did they address whether some of the carnage could have been avoided if other Germans in the crowded mall who saw the shooter and had time to react would have been armed.

From www.theguardian.com:

A 21-year-old man has killed a woman with a machete and injured two other people before being arrested in the southern German city of Reutlingen.

The Polish foreign ministry said the victim was a Polish woman who was pregnant.

The man, a Syrian asylum seeker, had been involved in previous incidents causing injuries to other people, a police spokesman said. The motive was not clear but there was no indication that the incident was a terrorist attack.

The assailant was apparently acting alone and “there is no danger to anyone else at this time”, the spokesman said.

Witnesses said the man was having an argument with the woman before he attacked her at about 4.30pm on Sunday.

The spokesman had no immediate information about when the man arrived in Germany, or when the previous incidents took place.

It was the third act of violence against civilians in Germany in 10 days.

On Friday, an 18-year-old Iranian-German who was obsessed with mass killings shot dead nine people in Munich before turning his gun on himself as police approached.

On 18 July, a 17-year-old who had sought asylum in Germany was shot dead by police after wounding four people from Hong Kong, some of them severely, with an axe on a train and injuring a local resident near the city of Wuerzburg.

From www.independent.co.uk:

A man has been arrested after he stabbed a woman and her three daughters at the Alps resort of Colombe in southern France.

Initial reports claimed the man had attacked them because he was upset they were wearing shorts and T-shirts, but a local prosecutor denied the claim.

“I wanted to quash the rumour currently doing the rounds because on no account did this man make such comments about the fact that the attack may have been motivated by the victims’ dress code,” Raphael Balland, prosecutor of Gap, said at a press conference.

The prosecutor also said the attack had no link to religious fundamentalism.

The man reportedly attacked the three girls on the terrace of their hcalat around 10am, before going to attack their mother inside.

The mother, 36, and two of her daughters aged 12 and 14 are being treated at the central hospital of Gap, close to the scene of the attack.

Her other daughter, an eight-year-old, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung.

The attacker, a 37-year-old man from Morocco, was on holiday with his pregnant wife and two children, local media reports.

From www.telegraph.co.uk:

An 82-year-old woman was beheaded in a north London suburban garden by a man with a machete.

Palmira Silva, a widow and grandmother described as “such a sweet lady” by one neighbour, was killed outside her home in Edmonton in a random but frenzied assault by a 25-year-old.

Witnesses said they saw the man, wielding a foot-long blade, attack a passing vehicle and a cat before roaming back gardens looking for a victim.

Police believe he also tried to attack two people at another home in the street, but they were able to escape without injury.

The man was arrested after armed officers, who had distracted him to prevent further attacks, cornered him in a house and brought him down with a Taser stun gun. Some officers were injured.

Mrs Silva, who was of Italian descent, was pronounced dead at the scene.

One line of inquiry for detectives is understood to be that the man was inspired by recent footage of terrorists beheading two American journalists in Syria.

Some residents claimed last night that the suspect was a local man who had converted to Islam last year, but those claims could not be verified. Detectives said they had ruled out terrorism.

Witnesses described seeing police smash windows of neighbouring properties, carry screaming children and lead terrified residents to safety.

One neighbour told of her narrow escape. Freda Odame, 30, a catering worker, said she heard a commotion and pulled back her curtains to see a man in his mid-20s with a knife.

“Someone was shouting and the door was banging. I could hear the screaming but I could not hear what he was saying,” she said.
“I could see that he had a big curved knife, about the size of an arm’s length and he was crouching as if frantically searching for something. He had a crazed look in his eyes so I closed my curtains because I was scared.

“My next door neighbour was in his garden but did not seem to realise anything was going on. I have seen him around here all the time, I think he lives on the road. I think he lives with his family. Five minutes after I heard him screaming the police knocked on my door and told me I had to get out.”

Another neighbour described seeing a man brandishing a machete and shouting about cats and said that he saw a headless cat as he watched from his window.

The man, who did not want to be named, said: “There was a scream so I went to the windows and saw a guy with a machete with blood dripping from it.
“He was standing in the garden and walking up and down shouting about cats.”

The knifeman then appeared in the witness’s garden and began swiping at plants, he said. “He started cutting roses. We were just trying to call the police.” Sue Mahadooa, 50, who saw police cars screech to a halt outside her home, said officers ran down the street shouting at people to get out.

Police with battering rams began breaking down front doors and smashing windows to help residents to safety, unaware of which property the killer was in.
Ms Mahadooa said the property where the woman is believed to have been killed is split into three maisonettes and police were desperate to get its residents out without sending them into the shared corridor.

“These officers ran up and started trying to help these two children and a woman out of the little top window of the ground floor,” she said. “The woman couldn’t get through the window so they started smashing the bigger one, but then I saw them get her out of the front door.

“She was very frightened. The kids were crying and looked very scared. There was clearly something awful going on inside.”

George Stylianou, another neighbour, said: “Policewomen were sprinting past and screaming at us, ‘Get back – you don’t understand how dangerous this man is’.”

Earlier one witness had tweeted: “Madman on the loose with a machete in Edmonton.”

Andy Love, the Edmonton MP, said: “I am absolutely horrified and stunned by what has happened in my constituency. This is a relatively solid community with relatively good relations between all of the people.”

Ricardo Kwiek, 23, a taxi driver, saw a young man fighting with police after officers stormed a property. He said the man was bundled into a van.

“There were policemen trying the front door and the back. The chap inside wasn’t letting them in,” he said. “They got in the back door. They came out with a man who was struggling and fighting. He wasn’t giving up. I could see loads of police fighting with him.”

A neighbour who knew the victim said that she still went to work every day. “Her husband died about five years ago. I think she came from Italy originally. I was speaking to her yesterday. She was weeding in the front garden, she loved her gardening,” the neighbour said.

“I think maybe today she was in the back garden. She was such a sweet lady. She was slow getting around but she still went to work. I think after her husband died that kept her going.”

Ms Silva’s family run a café in Edmonton Green called Silva’s Café. She was seen there every day. Mehmet Ungun, 41, at Aksu Food Centre, said: “She is a very nice woman. She came in nearly every day to buy supplies for the café. She helped out with the younger generations of the family.”

Commander Simon Letchford, of the Metropolitan Police, praised the bravery of officers, saying they “put themselves in extreme danger to protect the public”.

Det Chief Insp John Sandlin, leading the investigation, added: “We are confident that we are not looking for anyone else at this stage. Whilst it is too early to speculate on what the motive behind this attack was I am confident, based on the information currently available to me, that it is not terrorist related.”

The man was last night being treated for minor injuries suffered when he was arrested.
