When an 18-year old German Iranian killed nine people and then shot himself on Friday in Munich, speculation that it was an Islamist attack circulated for hours.
But doubts arose when a video was uploaded in which the attacker can be heard shouting: “I am German.”
On Wednesday, German media cited police sources as saying that they now had credible information that the attacker was a right-wing extremist who hated Arabs and Turks. Although he was not thought to have been associated with any right-wing groups, according to those media reports, the sources called him a “racist.” His victims were mostly foreigners.
Never mind that ‘Allahu Akbar’ nonsense he was shouting.
