MUST SEE=> Polish MP Slaps Down Liberal Reporter “Our Country Is Safe Because We Accept ZERO Illegals
by Rev. Austin Miles
An outraged world is fuming over the new Time magazine cover photo showing President Donald Trump standing tall, looking superior over a tiny “refugee” girl at his feet, her head down and sobbing, who (the photo implies) had been torn away from her parents during Trump’s handling of the refugee crisis.
‘Yep, that’ll do it,’ the Democrat Communist Trump-haters boasted when the new phony Time issue came out. President Trump is a monster with no heart for anyone but himself—the democrats say. Dirty politics at its finest.
Those of us who made inquires learned that this little girl is NOT a refugee and she has parents. She was never separated from her parents!
This entire photo fraud was staged fake news to make President Donald Trump look bad which has become a full-time occupation of the Communist Democrats who plan to take over America.
They go so far as to state that someone whose identity is known only to them, says that they think Trump is a mental case, and that gets published. If the very elegant Melania, wears shoes or a jacket that prompts made-up criticism, that non-event gets full coverage.
ANYTHING to make the Trump Family look bad and unstable. This is an example of DIRTY POLITICS.
The parents of the children the left focuses on, have committed a crime of entering The United States illegally, and are arrested. They could have gone through the process to enter this country legally and gain legit citizenship.
Think about this: Arrests take place every day of those who break the law; criminals, thieves, murderers, rapists, drug and human trafficking, weapon charges. The children of the law-breakers never have been sent to jail with their parents who committed the crimes. They are placed in the home of relatives.
And nobody has ever questioned that. But now, the world is questioning the status of the children of the accused border-crashers since it has become a powerful political issue to give a particular side an advantage.
It is also interesting to note that the Dems are now so very sensitive to the children of the lawbreakers, and HOWL at the inhuman mistreatment of these young people. so they say. Yet they do not think twice about brutally butchering little innocent babies about to be born because they are inconvenient! Abortion has become the most visible issue for the Dem-Communists. This is nuts!
And the word butchering is accurate. A device is inserted into the womb that snips and pulls off each limb of the baby—not a fetus but a BABY! The baby’s heart beat means that they have feelings and silently scream as they are literally ripped apart. Horrible cannot describe what they feel.
Yet, the Democrat Communist have NO interest in this. They only want to use illegal refugee children to make their point. The Democrats take good care of them while murdering babies in the womb. Does this make sense? No! The Dem Communists have only one thing in mind, to put America and the world totally under their sick control.
America, wake up and push back!

Sheriff Joe Arpaio believes in law and order, knowing that a lawful country is an orderly country, which should, by all logic–even limited logic–be desired by all. Difficult to understand why this brings out the savage nature of democrats (which is not implanted too deep) who have made him appear to be the most vilified individual on earth.
Notice the description; “appear to be.” That is the illusion George Soros is determined to project. Stay tuned for more on Soros, the Democrat Communist Party, the problems they orchestrate in America and why.
The beef? Sheriff Joe did his job according to his state’s constitution. He was tough on law breakers and hoodlums in general. He did not pussy foot around. He would not handle them with kid gloves. Indeed he dressed the most vicious prisoners in pink. One thing for sure, those inmates don’t ever want to be put there again and they tried to live more lawful lives once released. In other words, they were taught a lesson they will never forget–that crime does NOT pay–plus there are severe consequences for committing crime.
Sheriff Joe upheld the Constitution of the United States by arresting illegal immigrants and deporting them back to their country of origin. He wants them to come in properly, meaning legally. Then they can be welcomed.
Yes, we are a nation of immigrants, but the immigrants back then came in legally after first learning to speak English and studying American history. They had to be thoroughly vetted and to show they had enough money to keep themselves going until finding work, or, had a family member living here who could support them until they got settled. THEN after completion of paper work, they came to America via Ellis Island. They were all PROUD to become American citizens and gave their best to this country.
The illegal immigrants of today simply crash our borders, cannot speak English and demand all rights granted to American citizens apply to them, plus they demand and receive welfare, food stamps, housing, medical care and schooling. What is worse, Muslims, who are instructed by their ‘religion’ Islam, slip into this country to attack us from within, which has happened with increasing regularity. Yet, the Dem-wits want to keep letting them in.
What is worse, it is our tax money that pays the millions of dollars a year for their upkeep.
Obama who was groomed and sponsored by Soros and The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was placed, not voted in but PLACED, in The Oval Office for the purpose of surrendering the United States to the One World Government Communist Order. The fraudulent president had his ‘Justice Department’ file misdemeanor charges against Sheriff Joe just before his re-election campaign. He had served 24 years as the elected Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, and did so with honor.
Arizona is a rather strange place with some questionable leaders, including John McCain, an absolute traitor who was not the hero he claims to be. Fellow prisoners of war with him in Viet Nam reported that he was a snitch among other things. He was not liked by them nor was he the patriot he paints himself to be or was.
McCain is fighting everything essential to the stability of The United States, the only country standing in the way of being brought into the One World Communist Order. Why? Because of the millions of Christians here and active churches throughout the country. A mind that belongs to Jesus cannot be enslaved. This is why the Reds have tried in every way to destroy the church.
It was the millions of Christians coming out of the shadows that put President Donald Trump into the Oval Office, not Russia or fraudulent voting as the Democrats are trying to sell. The people, yes the American PEOPLE, spoke and put him into office.
Meanwhile it is reported that McCain is being financed by George Soros to do everything possible to sabotage the American system. This is the same George Soros who poured out $4 million to buy attack ads against Sheriff Joe that were nasty, vicious, deceptive and ultimately cost him the election.
At Soros’ orders, the Obama Justice Department filed criminal contempt of court charges (?) against him the day before critical early voting began in Arizona. These costly efforts influenced voters who defeated Sheriff Joe at the ballot box.
The same dirty tactics were and are being used to vilify President Trump. He is NOT disliked by the American people. It was the American people who VOTED him in. The so-called ‘protests’ and riots were and are all planned by George Soros. They are paid misfits to, again, make it APPEAR that Trump is a disaster and not liked. Soros even paid for and furnished the protest signs used.
George Soros owned Hillary and was so certain that she would win the election (he paid off everyone to make sure), that he bet one billion dollars that she would win. Soros owns a home in New York State, South Hampton, Long Island and has an apartment and business office in Manhattan.
Hillary spent the weekend with him in his South Hampton home during the week of August 9th, before the election. To Soros, Hillary becoming his puppet president was a done deal…but she lost and he had to pay out a billion bucks. He had no idea that there would be millions of Christians who would come out without fanfare and overwhelmingly voted Donald Trump in as President. That cannot be denied.
George Soros, whose actions show him to be Satan incarnated, hates Sheriff Joe for the same reason he hates President Donald Trump. They are both patriots. They love our country. Sheriff Joe was the epitome of law enforcement. He too loves our country and wants to see it peaceful and orderly.
While he was known as America’s toughest sheriff he has a very tender side that is not that well known. He loves animals and rescues countless dogs from “Kill Shelters,” meaning shelters that keep an abandoned or lost animal for only a couple of days. If nobody comes to claim or adopt it, the animal is euthanized, or, in clearer terns, executed.
Sheriff Joe rescued such dogs and took them to prisoners to adopt and take care of at certain times in their cells. The prisoners also worked at the animal shelter Sheriff Arpaio created out of an abandoned jail. The love that those dogs have shown to them may have been the first real love any of them had ever experienced, and we understand that it had such a powerful impact on inmates that they determined to change their lives for the better. One prisoner was heard praying this prayer: “Lord, help me to be the man my dog thinks I am.”
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a good man who can be tough when needed while at the same time fair. He has a tender heart. And this is the man who the billionaire Hungarian Jew Communist George Soros has worked so hard to destroy. Like his mentor, Satan, Soros hates anything that is good.
George Soros must be prosecuted for Treason, Sedition and overthrowing governments which he has done in the past and is determined to include the U.S. on his list of conquests. He can and must be charged and put in prison. Every Reader can play an important role in this necessary action.
Remember, an avalanche begins with a single snow flake…a flood with one drop of rain. We must begin by insisting that our president press charges against this power hungry maniac. It is up to us individually. We can each begin that avalanche and flood to see that action is taken against the most evil man in the universe.
Meanwhile, Sheriff Joe needs help. He is down but definitely not out. Let’s see his actual words. “I was defeated at the ballot box–all because of my unwavering support for enforcing illegal immigration laws–and being so outspoken about the federal government’s failure to do their job.
“But, as I have said to you time and time again, I never back down from a fight and I never surrender. And I’m not about to now. While I may no longer be the sheriff, I still believe in order for our Republic to stand, we must enforce the Rule of Law.
“So I’m going to continue to fight for the shared conservative values we hold so dear. After serving 55 years in law enforcement as a top director of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, including 24 years as an elected sheriff, I’ll be fighting for out values as a private citizen.
“Recently, I formed the “Sheriff Joe Arpaio Action Fund” which I will use to counter the likes of George Soros who use their billions to influence public policy and elections. I learned a lot of lessons during my last campaign, but chief among them is that we can never idly sit by and get comfortable. Our cause must be vigilant, ever-ready to counter the progressive left’s lies and deceit.” (Last emphasis mine)
Avalanches and floods, come forward, one snowflake and one drop of rain at a time–that is each of you. Sheriff Joe must be reinstated as a leader. Also, please help him with his project. To contact him use this email address: email@example.com
ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY
If true, this would mean that Donald Trump still won the contest despite widespread vote fraud and almost certainly won the popular vote.
“We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens,” tweeted Phillips after reporting that the group had completed an analysis of a database of 180 million voter registrations.

.@statedeptspox: I wouldn’t debate that there’s potential for ISIS terrorists to try to insert themselves into the refugee population
“We’ve seen that in some of the refugee camps in Jordan and in Turkey, where they’ll try to insert themselves into the population.” Kirby said.
Kirby then spent the remainder of the interview attempting to convince viewers that the tens of thousands of refugees being admitted to the country are bring “stridently vetted,” yet he admitted that the vetting system is “not perfect.”
“I would tell you that the more than 10,000 now Syrian refugees that we’ve admitted into the country, by this month, have all been extremely and very stridently vetted.” Kirby claimed.
“There’s certainly not the same amount of information you have on individuals there that you would have here.” Kirby said, then claimed “they are going through a very serious inter-agency vetting process, the most that any refugee goes through.”
“Is it perfect? Can it be perfect? Can it be foolproof? Well, probably not, no. But it is very, very serious.” Kirby said.
Kirby added “We feel good that it is — it’s done appropriately, it’s done thoroughly, that the vetting is good.”
The State Department spokesman also argues that the “bulk” of recent terrorist attacks “are not from refugees.”
National security officials and experts have been warning for months that the refugee vetting system is woefully below par.
Head of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Michael McCaul, has previously said that “There are a lot of holes — gaping holes,” in US defenses.
McCaul has said he has spoken with FBI and Homeland Security officials who have repeatedly told him that “We don’t have the databases to vet them.”
In testimony before the Senate, FBI Director James Comey has stated that “gaps” remain in the vetting process, owing to a lack of intelligence on the ground in Syria.

“Wake up, America!” Fox said repeatedly during an interview with the Washington Post. “I want to warn people here in the United States to watch out for this false prophet that promised gold, that promised paradise, that promised everything.”
“Sitting in that chair, the presidential chair of the United States, where Abraham Lincoln sat, where Washington sat, President Kennedy, President Reagan, with elegance, with authority, with consideration to everybody in the world — how can this guy sit there.”
The reason why Fox hates Trump is simple: the former president once proposed merging the U.S. into Mexico and Canada.
Fox wanted the U.S. to join Mexico and Canada into a EU-style “North American Union” which would combine all three countries into one regional government using one currency, like the Euro, at the expense of both U.S. national sovereignty and individual rights.
“I proposed a ‘NAFTA Plus’ plan to President Bush and Canada’s Prime Minister Jean Chrétien to move us toward a single continental economic union, modeled on the European example,” he wrote in his autobiography Revolution of Hope. “…At summits I took every opportunity to advocate clearly for free-market policies; showing what sound economics could do to fund social justice; arguing for globalism, NAFTA and the Free Trade Area of the Americas.”
An EU-style North American Union would be easier to implement if the U.S. lacks effective borders, which explains why Fox keeps lashing out against Trump’s brand of nationalism in particular.
Fox also claimed to seek the “convergence of our two economies, convergence on the basic and fundamental variables of the economy, convergence on rates of interest, convergence on income of people, convergence on salaries.”
“Why can’t we be not only partners in the long term, but a North American Union,” he asked during a 2007 interview.
And while Fox stopped short of labeling Trump a racist, despite comparing him to Adolf Hitler in the past, Fox ironically referred to Trump as “the ugly gringo of the 20th century” and a “piñata” with “no brain inside.”
Fox also leveled criticism at current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto for extending an invitation to Trump to visit Mexico City, but his criticism is hypocritical given that Fox himself had extended the same invitation when he apologized for using vulgar language to assert Mexico would not pay for Trump’s border wall.
“I invite him to come to Mexico and to see what Mexico is all about,” he said.
The Council of Europe’s Protocol No. 12 to the European Convention on Human Rights on combating racism established in 1994 the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI).
A majority of the Council of Europe’s 47 members have ratified Protocol 12, which is also open to signature and ratification of observers of the Council of Europe, including the United States, Canada, Vatican City, and Japan, and non-affiliates like Australia, South Africa, Argentina, Japan, and Mexico.
A number of non-Council members have ratified Council of Europe resolutions, including the United States, Canada, Vatican City, and Australia.
Protocol 12 has resulted in ECRI and the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia applying pressure on international law enforcement agencies, such as the European Police Office (EUROPOL) and the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) adopting measures preventing them from referring to ISIL/jihadist terrorists as Muslims, jihadists, members of the Islamic State or Al Qaeda, or even as “terrorists” because of protocols and rules against stereotyping individuals based on their religion or race.
International policing protocols even inhibit law enforcement’s ability to refer to criminal suspects based upon their “physical appearance.” Physical descriptions are key to any investigation of crimes.
Nevertheless, physical descriptions that include the mufti often worn by Muslims, including burkas, niqabs, hijabs, jilbabs, chadors, abayas, shalwars, mundus, and dupattas, are frowned upon in police reports on terrorist acts, as are terms like “Muslim-looking” and “dark skinned.”
Police in Belgium, a hotbed for jihadist terrorism, including the attack on Zaventem Airport and the Maalbeek metro station in Brussels; France, which has seen repeated deadly jihadist terrorist attacks; Greece; Germany; the United Kingdom; Austria; Serbia; Hungary; and Spain have come under incessant fire from Council of Europe, European Union, and Muslim anti-xenophobia organizations for “brutality” against Muslims.
This pressure has resulted in police being unable to properly investigate suspected jihadist terrorists and take action against them before they carry out their deadly attacks.
Protocol 12 has also resulted in police agencies around the world from describing attacks by jihadists as Islamic State-inspired or “terrorist-related.”
Instead, police routinely issue press statements calling jihadist perpetrators “mentally ill” or “lone wolves,” even though many had previously been the subjects of police criminal investigations and had extensive dossiers maintained on them.
Examples of jihadist terrorist attacks committed this month alone being downplayed by police as a result of Protocol 12:
There are other numerous examples of Protocol 12 being used to cover up jihadist attacks in France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
Last month, 86-year old French priest Father Jacques Hamel died after his throat was slit by one of two jihadists who stormed his church in Normandy in France.
Initially, the names of the attackers were not released by French authorities, even though ISIL claimed responsibility for the attack.
One of the men was later identified as Adel Kermiche. Kermiche, who tried to join ISIL in Syria in 2015, had been ordered to wear an electronic device and he was restricted to his parents home in the afternoon and at night.
However, he was permitted free movement between 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. His and his colleague’s assassination of Father Hamel occurred at 9:40 a.m.
Last month, a 19-year old migrant from Afghanistan attacked train passengers in Wurzbürg, Bavaria with an axe and a knife.
The Afghan migrant, who shouted “Allahu Akbar” during the attack was shot dead by German police.
In May, another man, shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “infidels,” attacked four people, killing one and injuring three, at a Munich rail station.
Police, invoking Protocol 12, merely said the 27-year old attacker, a German citizen, “suffered from psychiatric issues” and had no links to any Islamist extremist groups.
The above incidents are but a few of those where transparency by the police and the police investigations have been adversely affected by Protocol 12 and its various implementing statutes and protocols around the world.
In support of Protocol 12, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has just announced that female Muslims on its force can wear the hijab with their uniforms.
If police have any chance of preventing and investigating acts of Islamist terrorism, Protocol 12 must be denounced by governments that have either ratified it or informally ascribed to it.
On Sunday, Frankfurter Allgemmeine Sonntagszeitung (FAZ) reported that the German government is set to enact a new “Concept for Civil Defence” which will “require the population to stockpile enough food for ten days.”
On the other side of the border, Czech media is reporting that the country’s food reserves are “struggling” and would be incapable of meeting demand in the event of a national crisis. Supplies of milk powder are particularly low.
The government is calling on citizens to increase their “self-sufficiency” and “food safety” by stockpiling more food.
According to Israeli Live News’ Steven Ben-DeNoon, a resident of the Czech Republic, news stations reporting on the story out of Germany also revealed how the Czech government is telling its citizens to “be prepared for the worst case possible scenario,” which is likely to be a large scale catastrophic terror attack or a nuclear disaster.
As we reported earlier this month, Czech President Miloš Zeman is also pushing for a change to the law that would make it easier for citizens to own firearms in order to defend themselves against jihadists.
Having previously been against private gun ownership, Zeman now says “citizens should arm themselves” to deal with the threat of Islamic terrorism.
Last month, the head of the French police cautioned that the country was on the verge of a “civil war” that could be sparked by more terror attacks or mass molestation like the one in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
Last year, Swiss army chief André Blattmann warned that the risk of social unrest in Europe was intensifying and that citizens should arm themselves.
Danish Professor Helmuth Nyborg also commented in April that “civil war” was the most likely outcome of current EU immigration policies.
Back in February, Norwegian Army Chief Odin Johannessen warned that European countries must be reading and willing to fight against radical Islam in order to preserve the values that unite the continent.

More than one million migrants flooded into Germany last year, and the government wants to get as many as possible into the job market, which would reduce their dependence on the state and compensate for labor shortages as the workforce ages.
Merkel will push reluctant German companies to offer more traineeships and position to refugees, Bild reported.
One man in a blue shirt can be seen attacking a defenceless victim who was seriously hurt and is currently in hospital.
The brawl broke out in the registration centre on Huckarder Strasse in the old industrial city of Dortmund yesterday and was posted shortly afterwards on Facebook.
Police are so far at a loss to explain the eruption of violence which comes at a tense time in Germany.
The government of Chancellor Angela Merkel is under increasing pressure to both reduce refugee numbers and vet the bona fides of those already in the country following a week of violence that saw a migrant attack people on a train and another blow himself up in the town of Ansbach.
Police said the fight involved men and women aged between 14 to 37.
More than 5,000 protested in Berlin and thousands more throughout Germany over the ‘open-door’ policy that many have blamed for four brutal terrorist attacks that left 13 dead over the last month.
The Chancellor faced a fresh wave of fury after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who entered the country as refugees.
Despite the massive waves of criticism, Merkel defended her policy this week, dramatically proclaiming ‘we can do it’ as she pledged not to let the violent acts guide political decisions.
But now her key ally in Bavaria – which bore the brunt of the attacks – has launched a fresh attack on her leadership, distancing his party from Merkel and straining the coalition that keeps her in power.

It is amazing how movie stars who are sheltered from the world, tucked in mansions behind iron gates with security guards, feel they can dictate how those not living in mansions must live their lives.
George Clooney who has earned millions with his movies, is a typical Hollywood Democrat who would never live WITHIN a Communist-socialist society, but IS comfortable on the hill above it. He is an Obama-Hillary booster and supports everything they stand for.
And he has unwittingly, by his own actions, demonstrated exactly what a Democrat is. And it is not pretty, like he is (or thinks he is).
Clooney, along with his high profile human rights lawyer, Amal, live what can only be called, “a cushy life.” They are two of the many outspoken critics of Donald Trump who wants to ban certain migrants from entering America. Clooney describes Trump’s idea as “massively stupid,” and took it further by calling Trump, “a zenophobic fascist.”
The actor has slammed the U.S. itself, the country that made him wealthy; “America is a nation founded by immigrants,” he preached, “and we are forgetting who we are.”
Clooney actually feels that he is being ‘noble’ to want to welcome migrant refugees to come on in. Indeed, he and his wife have pushed for an “open-door policy” similar to what Germany has. The actor went on to say that “The U.S. is not doing enough to help alleviate the crisis in Syria,” even though Obama has vowed to accept 10,000 asylum seekers from Syria this year and many more in 2017.
Donald Trump has a more sensible approach. Rather than just letting them flow through open gates. He feels that they should first be cautiously vetted to weed out Jihadists in their midst. Plus they should learn to speak English before coming to these shores.
BACKFIRE! The news of Clooney’s ‘noble’ idea encouraged ‘migrants’ to flock to his luxurious multi-million dollar 18th-century Italian mansion set on Lake Como, and set up camp outside the gates.After all, Clooney did say “that’s what we must do, welcome all comers.”
Starting with a few hundred immigrants, that number is rapidly growing, much to the consternation of his ultra rich neighbors including, Donatella Versace, Richard Branson and Madonna. After all, Clooney said, we should ALL welcome them so that would, in proper thinking, include himself, even though that is NOT leftist thinking.
His neighbors are not happy with the results of Clooney’s public comments. One resident watches them arriving at the San Giovanni station and said, “They are not poor hungry refugees but they are big and strong. People here in Como don’t like them. There are simply too many of them.” Another neighbor stated, “It is good for Switzerland that they have closed the border to migrants, but it is bad for Italy.”
The refugees leave trash laying on the ground throughout the area instead of finding a container to dump it in. This marks every area they have settled in or just passed through.
Now, in true Hollywood fashion, Clooney has put his mansion up for sale. He said the reason, now get this, is because he will have trouble with privacy concerns now that the paparazzi knows where they live. (?)
Sure.That’s it! Of course. It is not because hundreds of refugee immigrants have camped out in front of the gates of their home to partake of the hospitality seemingly offered by his public comments, and, they are not going away.
That has absolutely nothing to do with his selling the property doncha know. Truth is, his fight or flight impulse simply kicked in since he was forced to live in the conditions he expostulated to America.
And this is an example of true socialist democrat-Communist rule-making. It is OK to dictate what must be done by everyone else, but does not affect the leaders. This defines a Socialist Democrat.
The rich reds must not be inconvenienced by the laws they have pushed on others. Laws are only for the peasants. But I do confess there was some chuckling on the part of MilesTones when it was learned that for Clooney, the chickens had come home to roost. Yep, Poetic justification at last.
Our sincere appreciation to journalist Alice Shane of The Daily Mail for alerting us to this news item.
STOP THE PRESSES- THIS JUST IN: Trump foes now claim that Trump’s wife, Melania, who riveted the GOP Convention with her speech last night, is guilty of plagiarism, claiming that Melania stole that speech from Michelle Obama. (!) How’s that again?
Interesting; the DemoRATS will NOT leave their sinking ship, but are hanging on for dear life.
Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has said the attacker was one of its fighters, according to IS-affiliated Amaq news agency.
Police have also found documents suggesting the Afghan teen who attacked passengers on the train in Wurzburg had links with IS, German N24 channel reported, citing a source close to the investigation, RIA Novosti reports.
“It is clear that apart from Islamic State terror group’s flag, several documents that indicate of the suspect’s links to IS have been discovered in the suspect’s room,” N24 reported, adding that the documents have been taken by police for further analysis.
In an interview to public broadcaster ARD, Minister Joachim Herrmann earlier said it was too early to speculate about the motives of the 17-year-old. He added that police are currently trying to figure out whether the teen was a member of an Islamist group or a self-radicalized lone wolf.
The minister confirmed earlier reports by German media that the teenager shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) as he charged at his victims with an ax.
According to initial findings the attacker was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who arrived in Germany two years ago as an unaccompanied minor. He lived in the district of Würzburg for some time, in a town of Ochsenfurt. For two weeks prior to the incident, he was living with a foster family. They will now have to be questioned, Herrman said.
The attack left five people injured and 14 more in shock. The minister said two of the victims were in a critical condition.
Four of the injured were members of a Chinese family from Hong Kong. This was confirmed by Hong Kong Governor Leung Chun-Ying. He condemned the attack and sent the victims and their families his condolences. He also said representatives of the Hong Kong Economic Representation in Berlin would visit the victims in hospital.
The attack comes just over two weeks after Germany’s spy chief Hans Georg Maassen announced that his domestic intelligence agency had obtained information on 17 IS militants who had entered Europe under the guise of refugees.
“There is strong evidence that… 17 people have arrived under Islamic State instructions,” Maassen said.
Even Chancellor Angela Merkel, who’s been extensively criticized by a significant section of the German population for her open-door policy towards refugees, recently publicly acknowledged that some extremists could be taking advantage of the migrant influx to enter Germany and the European Union, saying that “in part, the refugee flow was even used to smuggle terrorists.”
The attack in Wurzburg is the second IS-linked act of violence within the European Union in less than a week, after the tragedy in France, in which a Tunisian truck driver ran down 84 people during celebrations in Nice. IS claimed that attack as well, and although the personality of the driver has its controversies, authorities acknowledged the fact he was a radical Islamist, recently radicalized.
Both attacks mirror the warning that recently came from FBI Director James Comey, who predicted that IS will spread worldwide as it prepares for the potential fall of its so-called caliphate in Iraq and Syria, growing ever more “desperate” to launch attacks elsewhere.
