Now as common as Sauerbraten in Merkelistan… German police arrest Muslim over terror plot

Authorities in the German state of Lower Saxony said on Thursday that they had arrested a 26 year-old Salafist for allegedly planning a terror attack. State prosecutors said that bomb-making materials were found in his apartment in the picturesque town of Northeim.

Police believe that the young man was planning to target police officers or soldiers. They believe he wanted to lure them into “falling in a trap,” where he would lay the explosives.

The news came one day after Germany’s domestic spy agency (BfV) released some troubling statistics about the rise of radicalization amongst young Muslims across the country. Up from about 100 people in 2013, the BFV announced on Wednesday that some 1,600 Islamists were living in Germany, about 500 of them considered capable of planning a terror attack. The new numbers represent an increase of several hundred in a matter of a few months.

    I suspect part of this is an effort to clog up the courts

    • It’s working.

      Maybe. The welfare fraud no doubt is partly that (and good old-fashioned greed). But terrorism? i think it’s just that they loathe the country that foolishly welcomed them, and wish to destroy it.

    merkelism at work.
    Spend billions on a ridiculous effort to treat tens of thousands of terrorist suspects and thousands of real plotting perps as a police problem.
    What the Germans have is a national security problem which requires detention of hundreds of thousands, deportation of hundreds of thousands, and barring the gates to millions more muslims planning to soon crash the party.
    The Germans or the French, flip a coin as to which are the most bizarre in the face of mortal danger.
