Syrian”Refugee” arrested in Germany for ‘war crime’

A Syrian suspected of being among jihadists who kidnapped a UN peacekeeper in Damascus in 2013 has been arrested over the “war crime”, Germany’s federal prosecutor said on Friday.

The 24-year-old man is believed to be a member of a branch of the al-Nusra Front jihadist group, the prosecutor said.

Investigations found that he had participated in the kidnapping on February 17, 2013 and was “involved in guarding the kidnapped victim between March and June 2013”.

He is “suspected of an attack during Syria’s civil war against a person, who was involved in a peacekeeping mission under the United Nations Charter, and was therefore entitled to protection”, said the prosecutor.

    May I ask just how the West (Germany in this case) can claim he or any other Muslim has committed a “war crime” when the same West denies that the war does not exist. This refusal to accept that Islam remains at war with us does not mean that there is no war.
