BERLIN: German police arrested four people Wednesday accused of belonging to a far-right “terror” organisation that acquired explosives for attacks on Muslims and refugee homes, federal prosecutors said.
The early-morning swoops in five states occurred with the country already on edge after authorities last week said they foiled a planned Islamist attack by a German-Turkish couple armed with a pipe bomb and other weapons.
They also came amid a rise in attacks on lodgings for asylum seekers as Germany takes in record numbers of people fleeing conflicts in the Middle East and Africa.
Throughout Europe the political response to Muslim and mass immigration in general has been impotent at best, complicit at worst.
Eventually people take the law into their own hands. Policy to date has been a recipe for revolt.
