Merkel to Germans: – The state will protect you

Chancellor Angela Merkel sought to reassure Germans that the state will keep them safe as she pledged all resources to get to the bottom of the rampage in Munich that left 10 people dead and more than 20 wounded in an attack by a 18 year old Muslim man who shouted “Allahu Akbar” before killing mainly children.

Wait – Allahu Akbar isn’t supposed to be in the script.

BERLIN, GERMANY - JULY 20: German Chancellor Angela Merkel stands in the doorway of the Chancellery as she waits for the arrival of British Prime Minister Theresa May on July 20, 2016 in Berlin, Germany. May, who replaced David Cameron as prime minister last week in the wake of the Brexit vote that will take the United Kingdom out of the European Union, is visiting Germany and France in her first foreign trip since assuming office.

Lack of Faith in Merkel Spreads With Bavaria’s Bloody Week of Mayhem

One need hardly be a far-right German to be unnerved that young people welcomed warmly to the country only a year ago, penniless and in need of sanctuary, now want to kill their “infidel” hosts. For Chancellor Angela Merkel, the consequences of domestic terrorism by Muslim newcomers promise to be politically harmful, and perhaps lethal. While Merkel delayed her Alpine holiday this weekend to head a meeting of her national security team in response to the Munich attack—showing more tact than President Obama, who joked during his statement about the massacre—skeptics will deem this insufficient.

  • Sure she will.

    A golden oldie from a German who took nicht guffen:

    “…he addresses his interlocutor with a startling brusqueness, a
    brusqueness that we find unacceptable, on the central question about the
    relationship between religion and violence in general, saying: “Show me
    just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things
    only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the
    faith he preached.”[3]
    The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, goes on to
    explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence
    is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of
    God and the nature of the soul. “God”, he says, “is not pleased by blood
    – and not acting reasonably (σὺν λόγω) is contrary to God’s nature.
    Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to
    faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without
    violence and threats…”

    • Merkel ist guffen.

      excellent reflections…… excellent !

      Allah is not God. Allah is the devil mimicking God, because that’s all the devil can do. Muslim ‘morality’ as dictated by Islam’s core texts is a perverse inversion, a mockery of Judeo-Christian ethics.

      • What you said.

        A lot of Catholics get confused thinking that Islam and Catholicism are similar. All they need to do is read surah 5:75.

  • She crazy.

    Shove a stick of dynamite up her malodorous cunt.

    The State will protect you. Right after it moves a few million rapists and terrorists next door to you.

  • Brett_McS

    The state will be there … to scrape your body off the pavement.

  • Etobicoke_Gladiator

    Yeah, Merkel will keep us all safe… no more machetes, no more suicide bombers in front of wine bars, no more migrants… in your dreams. *sigh*

    Citizens – “Protect us? Or enslave us?”

    Merkel – “Potayto, potahto…”

    Obama will offer the FBI to help find the Motive for this devout muslim that was following the quranic verse to kill the unbelievers.
    There mus be a clue somewhere to solve this along with finding out why he praise god in Arabic.

    And Bavaria has always had an independence streak even within the German Empire. If I remember right, Bavaria was the capital of the Kingdom of Wuttemburg. It was neither ethusiastic being bossed around by Northern Germans (i.e. Prussians) and I think this disdain is showing up again.

    It’ll be interesting what happens in any subsequent elections and what the Bavarian politicians will do. I suspect that they’ll ‘obey’ but go their own way with respect to security. There is after all an ancient militia that goes back to the Middle ages which still exists hmmmmmm

    • tom_billesley

      Stuttgart was the capital of the Kingdom of Württemberg. Bavaria was a separate kingdom with Munich as the capital.

        Thanks for the correction. Do you know what the nave of the Bavarian kingdom was?

        • canminuteman

          Yes, It was the Kingdom of Bavaria ( Konigreich Bayern)., and it is the largest and wealthiest state in the modern country of Germany.

  • ed

    police arrest 16 year old “sunni” afgan buddy of sonboly who gave help setting up attack !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    She’s heralded Grosse-Dame-rung for Germany.

    The Glock ?
    The 300 rounds ?
    Still no word on where obtained ?
    How very odd.

    Her Alpine holiday should consist of a thorough examination of the “alte hexe” at some institute doing lots of cutting edge research on curing the criminally insane.

    • The Glock 17 was reportedly bought “on the internet” with the serial numbers filed off. In yesterday’s Continental Breakfast we ran a story about the huge number of illegal guns in Germany as a result of their strict gun control laws.

      • simus1

        A Glock plus 300 rounds is a substantial investment or robbery.
        Not really something a teen loser could be expected to manage alone unless he ripped off a relative or something similar.

        • I’ve been wondering about that 300 rounds, too. If it wasn’t in magazines, it was useless and shows the killer didn’t think things through. If it was in magazines, it adds a another significant expense to the event.

          I have no idea what a gun on the black market in Germany would cost, but Glocks are (as I’m sure you know) extremely reliable firearms and not cheap.

    how is the state going to protect them when the state is the thing responsible for importing this terror threat and is also responsible for setting up an official environment that makes naming that threat impossible
