Germany ‘struggling to jail Isis fighters’

The justice system in Germany faces serious difficulties building cases against those suspected of having fought for Isis in Iraq and Syria, the country’s top prosecutor said on Monday.

“We often have the impression that these people were not just in Syria as sentries or to be trained in the use of weapons, but that they took part in maimings, killings and bomb attacks,” German Attorney General Peter Frank told the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

“We assume that these perpetrators have blood on their hands, but we often can’t prove it,” Frank added.

    “We are all less-free merely because of their presence.”

    Jihad is war, not a matter of criminal justice. Will ANY Western government learn this?

    • No. They afraid of of the Muslims they have let in their countries and I suspect increasingly more afraid of their own citizens who are waking up to the threat.

    The Muslims could probably decimate Berlin, New York , Ottawa , London and Paris—

    And our response would be to protect the Mosques from a Backlash.

        One of my brother-in-laws was always referred to as a “box head” in good humour though.
