German study claims devout Islamic youth more violence-prone (Paging Capt. Obvious)
monstersandcritics.com ^ | June 5, 2010

Posted on 06/10/2010 4:04:10 PM PDT by PROCON

Berlin - The more devout a young Muslim male in Germany is, the more likely he is to resort to violence, according to a federally financed study seen Saturday by the German Press Agency dpa.

The study, based on interviews with 45,000 boys and girls aged 14 to 16, also concluded that male supremacist views and a preference for violent videos and computer games link closely with mosque attendance among the young. It compared Christians and Muslims.

That’s a lot like a report claiming that the sky is blue.

KFN conducted interviews in 2007 and 2008 in 61 cities with the aim of detecting how religious belief influences attitudes and behaviour. It found that young people who were intensely Christian were less likely to be violent than the average.

Funny how the left is always afraid of a rise in Christian fundamentalism.

IMMIGRATION | 06.06.2010
“Study finds young, devout Muslims in Germany more prone to violence”

SNIPPET: “A study conducted by the German authorities has found that the more devout young Muslims become, the more prone to violence they get.”

SNIPPET: “The willingness to commit violent crimes grows among young Muslim immigrants in Germany the more religious they become, according to a joint survey by the German interior ministry and the Institute for Criminology Research of Lower Saxony (KFN).

By comparison, the study found that just the opposite was true for Christian immigrants.”

SNIPPET: “The study said the reason for this difference had to do with the very different image of masculinity.”

Justifying Martyrdom in German [Note: Re German language jihadi literature]
JIHADICA.com ^ | May 21, 2010 | Nico Prucha
Posted on May 25, 2010 2:44:00 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “Signed by “your brothers of the German Taliban Mujahideen”, the document has two parts.”

SNIPPET: “As a whole, the text provides a German-language assessment and justification for suicide missions.”

SNIPPET: “The main significance of the document is that it is in German and thus accessible to German speaking audience. It is the latest addition to a very rapidly growing body of German-language jihadi literature. Of all these new texts, the jihadist defense of ‘martyrdom’ operations by Elif Medya and the German Taliban Mujahideen may well be one of the most important.”

German Jihadist Eric Breininger Killed in Pakistan, Group Claims
Spiegel Online ^ | 05/03/2010 | Yassin Musharbash
Posted on May 4, 2010 6:04:23 PM PDT by csvset

Eric Breininger, one of Germany’s most wanted suspected terrorists, has been killed in a battle with Pakistani troops in the Waziristan tribal region of Pakistan, according to an unconfirmed statement by a jihadist group. Breininger had appeared in several Internet videos trying to recruit terrorists in Germany.

Eric Breininger, a German-born convert to Islam wanted by German police on suspicion of belonging to a terrorist cell, was killed on April 30 in a firefight with Pakistani troops, according to an unconfirmed claim by a Jihadi group on Sunday.

Breininger, 22, was a member of the Islamic Jihad Union and had contacts with the homegrown group of terrorists who plotted to bomb US targets in Germany in 2007. Three of the members of that group, known as the Sauerland cell after the region of western Germany where it was based, were arrested in September 2007 as they were preparing to carry out bombing attacks. They were sentenced to long jail terms in March this year.

A Turkish Islamist known as “Salaheddin,” who was in charge of the Islamic Jihad Union’s Internet site, is also reported to have been killed in the fight. German authoritities believe Salaheddin is Ahmet M., who was born in Germany and deported to Turkey 10 years ago.

German authorities said they were checking the report. The written statement made by the group called Taifatul Mansura and seen by SPIEGEL ONLINE says the two men were attacked by “Pakistanis who have deserted their faith” near the town of Mir Ali. It is likely to be referring to Pakistani soldiers. Ahmet M. had killed four attackers by exploding a hand grenade even though he had already been severely wounded, the statement said.

Propaganda Videos

Eric Breininger was believed to have been in the Waziristan border region since September 2007.

The video also includes footage of a balding Caucasian male identified as a U.S. national fighting alongside the IJU, “Abu Ibrahim al-Amriki.” The IJU has claimed responsibility for a failed terrorist plot in 2007 targeting airports and other critical infrastructure in Germany - including Ramstein Air Base.”

SECURITY COUNCIL AL-QAIDA AND TALIBAN SANCTIONS COMMITTEE ADDS NAME OF ONE INDIVIDUAL...
UN.org - News - Press Release ^ | 28 May 2009 | n/a
Posted on October 15, 2009 6:17:34 PM PDT by Cindy

Note: The following text is a quote:

Department of Public Information • News and Media Division • New York SECURITY COUNCIL AL-QAIDA AND TALIBAN SANCTIONS COMMITTEE

ADDS NAME OF ONE INDIVIDUAL TO CONSOLIDATED LIST

On 27 May 2009, the Security Council Al-Qaida and Taliban Sanctions Committee approved the addition of the entry specified below to its Consolidated List of individuals and entities subject to the assets freeze, travel ban and arms embargo set out in paragraph 1 of Security Council resolution 1822 (2008) adopted under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.

C. Individuals associated with Al-Qaida

QI.H.269.09. Name: 1: BEKKAY 2: HARRACH 3: na 4: na Title: na Designation: na DOB: 4 Sep. 1977 POB: Berkane, Morocco Good quality a.k.a.: a) Abu Talha al Maghrabi b) al Hafidh Abu Talha der Deutsche (“the German”) Low quality a.k.a.: na Nationality: German Passport no.: German passport number 5208116575 issued in Bonn valid until 7 Sep. 2013 National identification no.: a) German national identity card number (Bundespersonalausweis Nr.) 5209243072, issued in Bonn, Germany, valid until 7 Sep. 2013 b) German driving licence number J17001W6Z12, issued in Bonn, Germany Address: na Listed on: 27 May 2009 Other information: Believed to be in the Afghanistan/Pakistan border area (as at Apr. 2009). Member of Al-Qaida (QE.A.4.01.), reportedly since at least March 2007.

In accordance with Section 6, paragraph (g) of the Committee’s Guidelines for the Conduct of its Work, the publicly releasable portion of the statement of case detailing the bases for listing of the above-mentioned individual, as provided by the designating State(s), is included herewith (statement of case in italic).

“With the help of a person who has been charged by a German court with smuggling humans for Al Qaeda, Bekkay HARRACH left Germany in January 2007 to travel to an Al Qaeda training camp in the Afghan-Pakistani border region. If he had not already joined Al Qaeda, he did so there and expressed his willingness to take part in military training in order to fight on behalf of Al Qaeda.

In January 2009 at the latest, HARRACH provided the German narration for a video entitled “Das Rettungspaket für Deutschland” (The rescue package for Germany), which was produced by Al Qaeda’s media agency As-Sahab, in this way disseminating Al Qaeda’s demands and message to the German people. This video, produced with HARRACH’s assistance, was secured on the al-fallujah website, known for distributing Islamist content, on 17 January 2009 and later found in several Internet forums.

In the video, HARRACH discusses Germany’s social, economic and political situation. He announces that the German troops in Afghanistan should expect to be attacked by Al Qaeda and their allies, the Taliban, and links this announcement to an appeal to the German population to make the right choice in the 2009 Bundestag elections. He also states that the Mujahedin are not interested in a conflict with Germany, but that Germany would not be spared if it did not stay away from “evil”. From the context, it is apparent that with “evil”, he is referring to Germany’s role in the fight against international terrorism in general and its contribution to the coalition troops in Afghanistan in particular.

In another Internet video distributed via the Al Qaeda media office on 26 February 2009 entitled “Der Islam und die Finanzkrise”(Islam and the financial crisis), HARRACH presents his view of the causes and effects of the global finance and economic crisis. He calls it a punishment by God and says the only way to solve it is by introducing a social order based on the Koran and Sharia law. In the video, Harrach says that future statements will be forthcoming via As-Sahab.

According to investigations by the Federal Public Prosecutor, there is good reason to believe that HARRACH has been a member of the foreign terrorist organization Al Qaeda since March 2007. The threats he has distributed via the Al Qaeda media office demonstrate his willingness as a member of Al Qaeda to participate in its terrorist activity all the way to suicide attacks.”

The Committee’s List is updated regularly on the basis of relevant information provided by Member States and regional organizations. This is the eleventh update of the List in 2009. An updated List is accessible on the Committee’s website at the following URL: http://www.un.org/sc/committees/1267/consolist.shtml.

SNIPPET: “The NEFA Foundation has obtained a video recording released by the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) paying tribute to a German national “Abu Safiyya” (a.k.a. Javaid Siddiqi) who was “martyred” in late October during fighting alongside mujahideen forces in Afghanistan. The video shows Siddiqi on the frontline along the Afghan-Pakistani border accompanied by other German recruits—and at a terrorist training camp that was organized last May.”

SAUERLAND CELL TRIAL Terror Suspects Will Make Full Confessions
SPIEGEL.de ^ | June 9, 2009 | n/a
Posted on June 12, 2009 12:34:04 AM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “There was an unexpected twist in Germany’s high-profile terror trial when the four men accused of planning massive car bombs on US targets in Germany took a time out for several hours. When they returned, their lawyers said they wanted to make full confessions.”

SNIPPET: “Adem Yilmaz was the first to show a change of attitude, asking the court for permission to talk things over with his three co-defendants. The judge was happy to oblige.”

SNIPPET: “Yilmaz told the court on Tuesday that he wanted to meet with the other alleged members of the so-called “Sauerland Cell” — Fritz Gelowicz, Daniel Schneider and Atilla Selek — without their lawyers present.”

(DPA)

“German jihadists misunderstood Islam, planned mass murder”

SNIPPET: “Will the Islamophobia never end? “Prosecutor: German Islamists planned mass murder,” from DPA, February 3 (thanks to Twostellas):

Dusseldorf - The chief prosecutor in the German trial of four alleged Islamists said on Wednesday that they had planned ‘mass murder’ on a scale unknown in Germany.
State prosecutor Volker Brinkmann said the members of the so- called Sauerland Group were driven by an overwhelming hatred of US soldiers and by a desire to carry out mass murder, and would not have shied away from killing innocent women and children.

The group, consisting of Daniel Schneider, Fritz Gelowicz, Adem Yilmaz and Attila Selek, is accused of planning attacks on US military bases in 2007.

The chief prosecutor emphatically warned against the ‘cancer of Islamist terrorism,’ as he set out his case to the Dusseldorf court. He argued that this ‘cancer’ would stop at nothing and chose its victims at random. Brinkmann said the four defendants had shown no real remorse during the nine-month trial, and said they did not confess out of regret.”

TERRORISM | 02.02.2010
“Prosecutors prepare closing arguments in major Geman terror trial”

SNIPPET: “The trial of four men who planned attacks on US military targets in Germany is drawing to an end. The “Sauerland Cell,” uncovered and arrested in 2007, was Germany’s first example of home-grown Islamist terrorism.

The Geman-born leader of the so-called Sauerland Cell, Fritz Gelowicz, showed Germany that Islamist terror was a problem in its own back yard.

The 30-year-old Islam convert and his three accomplices, German Daniel Schneider, Turkish-German Attila Selek, and Turk Adem Yilmaz were captured in the west German region of Sauerland in 2007, with vast stockpiles of hydrogen peroxide, suitable for making car bombs and other explosives.

They said they planned to attack US military targets based in Germany, and that events in the so-called “War on Terror” had motivated them to take up arms.”

“German cell planned September 11 anniversary attacks”

SNIPPET: “Giving evidence in court a week into the trial, the chief police investigator Ralph K. said the three Germans and a Turk were overheard by police discussing September 11, 2007 as a possible date for an attack.

They were also issued with emailed orders “to finish the job” by leaders of the Islamic Jihadic Union in Pakistan, an extremist group linked to Al-Qaeda, shortly before police captured three of them on September 4, 2007, he said.
And just one day before their arrest, when police caught them with enough equipment to make explosives 100 times more powerful than those used in the 2005 London bombings, the leaders told them to act within three weeks, he said.

Two of the suspects, Fritz Gelowicz and Daniel Schneider, are German converts to Islam, while Attila Selek — arrested later in Turkey — is a German of Turkish origin. The fourth is Adem Yilmaz, a Turkish national.”

Muslim converts accused of holy war bomb plots
Times Online (U.K.) ^ | April 22, 2009 | Roger Boyes
Posted on April 21, 2009 10:56:51 PM PDT by Schnucki

Two Muslim converts and two Turks go on trial in a bomb-proof courtroom in Düsseldorf today accused of plotting to blow up German civilians and US soldiers.

“The world will burn!” boasted an intercepted e-mail sent between the accused, who are alleged to have wanted to wage an Islamic holy war in the heart of Europe.

Three of the men — Fritz Gelowicz, 29, Daniel Schneider, 23 and the Turkish national Adem Yilmaz, 30 — are accused of attending a training camp on the Afghan-Pakistani frontier run by an Uzbek-based terror organisation known as the Islamic Jihad Union.

Intelligence services say that it has links with al-Qaeda. Using detonators — supplied, the state prosecutor claims, by Attila Selek, 24, a German citizen of Turkish origin — the gang prepared bombs with the explosive force of 410kg (904lb) of TNT, to be set off in and around the US Ramstein air base and other targets. The bombers in London on July 7, 2005, had 4kg of explosive.

It is alleged that the gang wanted the attacks to influence a parliamentary debate extending the mandate of the German Army in Afghanistan in the autumn of 2007.

The men were caught in an elaborate police sting operation in September that year. At the high point of the undercover surveillance, about 600 policemen were involved, fed with information from the German intelligence service and the CIA.

When the alleged plotters rented a remote holiday home and allegedly started to gather material for the bombing campaign the police encircled the region, disguising themselves as villagers, foresters and petrol station attendants.

As soon as the men left the cottage the police would change the vats of hydrogen peroxide for a diluted solution. They were following the example of Scotland Yard detectives, who while secretly monitoring terrorists

Germany: Big Terrorism Trial Begins

SNIPPET: “(Düsseldorf, Germany) The trial of four alleged terrorists, alleged ringleader Fritz Gelowicz, Adem Yilmaz, Daniel Schneider and Atilla Selek, began yesterday with each facing charges of conspiracy to commit murder, plotting terrorist attacks and membership in a terrorist organization, the Islamic Jihad Union (IJU).

The home-grown terrorist cell reportedly wanted Germany to withdraw troops from Afghanistan — and to kill Americans.
Under tight security, four men aged between 23 and 30 took to the dock on Wednesday in Düsseldorf to answer accusations of plotting a spate of bombings in discos, restaurants, airports, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office and US army installations.

The alleged plot, which was in its final stages when it was thwarted by police in September 2007, would have been the most destructive in Germany’s postwar history.

A fifth suspect, believed to be a central figure, is being sought by police.

After receiving a tip from an American intelligence source, the three Germans and a Turk were arrested in a raid which found them ready to strike. Police discovered hydrogen peroxide-based explosives with more potency than used in the 2004 Madrid bombings or the 2005 London attack. Targets for their terror attacks reportedly were the American airbase in Ramstein and cities of Dortmund, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Cologne and Munich.”

“Germany searching for 2 alleged terrorists”
Stars and Stripes ^ | April 15, 2008 | Nancy Montgomery,
Posted on April 15, 2008 4:14:44 AM PDT by Jet Jaguar

HEIDELBERG, Germany —

SNIPPET: “Breininger last summer was living with Schneider in Nuenkirchen, and went to Egypt shortly before Schneider and the others were arrested.

According to several German news reports, Breininger and al-Malla met in Egypt and traveled to Pakistan through Iran.

Breininger converted to Islam a little more than year ago, according to the articles, and was recruited into the IJU by Schneider. He told his family he wanted to be called “Abdul Rafar,” and told his grandmother he no longer considered himself German, then broke off contact with his family and his pregnant girlfriend, according to Focus.”

“Guest Post: The Story of Eric Breininger”
Thomas Hegghammer
May 11th, 2010 | Afghanistan, Germany, Travel Routes, training camps

SNIPPET: “[Editor’s note: This post was written by Christopher Radler and Behnam Said, who are intelligence analysts based in Hamburg, Germany. For links to the original document, see the comments to the preview post.]

On 3 May a message announcing the death of Eric Breininger (b. 3 August 1987) and three of his fellow combatants was posted on several German jihadist websites. Breininger, who travelled to the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan in the winter 2007, was one of the most infamous German jihadists. From Waziristan Breininger, a.k.a. “Abdul Ghaffar al-Almani”, sent several videotaped messages to the jihadist community in Germany, asking them to join the jihad or at least to support it financially. Since September 2008 the German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) searched for Breininger, based on his assumed affiliation with a foreign terrorist organization.

A day after the announcement of his death, Breininger’s alleged autobiography, entitled Mein Weg nach Jannah (My Way to Paradise) was released on jihadi websites. The 108-page document mainly deals with Breiningers path into violent islamist militancy. It is not clear however, if Breininger wrote the document himself. In the messages he delivered from Waziristan, he spoke a very simple and often grammatically incorrect German. By contrast, the language of the published book is far more elaborate and correct. On the other hand, the content and details in the book argue for the authenticity of the document. Interestingly, the spelling of names differs throughout the book, which could indicate a collaborative effort. So we can assume that Breininger either 1) wrote it down by himself and had some help from his friends, or 2) told his story to some of his fellow jihadists and they wrote it down, as Spiegel journalist Yassin Musharbash suggested. Overall, however, we favour the first assumption.

After stating the reasons for writing down his autobiography, that is to say to disprove the lies spread by the media and to guide Muslims and non-Muslims to the path of Allah, he describes his conversion.”

( Dutch ) Mayor: Moroccan Teenage Criminals are “Internal Enemy”
nis news ^ | 27/02/10 -
Posted on March 1, 2010 10:25:43 PM PST by george76

Albert van den Bosch ... mayor characterised Moroccan criminals as the “internal enemy”.

The VVD mayor urged special legislation to put a stop to intimidation by Moroccan youths. “The people are fed up. Do something about it as government!” ...

Who is our enemy? Do we need an expensive airforce for vague wars in far places, or is the enemy within, in the Netherlands?”

Van den Bosch is mayor of Zaltbommel. Some 1,000 Moroccans live in this municipality, of which 50 are regular offenders. “Twenty form the hard core and there are 30 copying them...”

But the mayor can do nothing against the trouble-makers, he says. “Intimidation, violence, serious trouble-making; much more is going on than just calling women ‘whore’. We also have some lover-boys (pimps press-ganging girls into prostitution), nearly all of Moroccan origin. I hear rumours that these are also already surfacing in the primary schools.”

Immigrant youths riot in Sweden, burning down school (’Little Mogadishu’)
BBC News ^ | 6/9/10 | BBC
Posted on June 9, 2010 10:22:08 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

Rioters in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, have burned down a school building and thrown stones at police in a second night of disturbances.

The trouble began on Monday after a group of youths in a suburb with a mainly immigrant population were refused entry to a school dance.

...

‘Little Mogadishu’

Police said the rioters threw stones at the fire engines, preventing them from reaching the school building before it burned to the ground. The youths also attacked a police station.

Rinkeby is home to a large number of first- and second-generation immigrants. Many of them are from Somalia, so the area is sometimes nicknamed Little Mogadishu.

Muslim student sprays teacher with tear gas after she describes al-Qaeda as a terrorist group
jihad watch ^ | March 10, 2010
Posted on March 11, 2010 8:47:38 AM PST by george76

Lyon, France - A 15-year-old French schoolboy sprayed a teacher with teargas after she described al-Qaeda as a “terrorist group”, she told reporters on Tuesday as prosecutors began their investigation.

“I had just explained that the attacks on September 11, 2001 were carried out by the terrorist organisation al-Qaeda, as is written in the text book,” said the history teacher, speaking on condition of anonymity.

“He stood up and declared that al-Qaeda is not terrorist and that neither is the Taliban,” she said, adding that the boy had then pulled out a spray can and doused her and a teaching assistant with teargas.

Iraqi yob who spat on WWII hero’s medals escapes jail ( England )
Daily Mail ^ | 25th February 2010
Posted on February 27, 2010 6:58:56 PM PST by george76

An Iraqi-born yob who spat on a World War II hero’s medals on Remembrance Day yesterday escaped jail.

Serwan Abdullah, 23, targeted Timothy House while he was wearing his late grandfather’s honours after a commemorative parade.

Mr House, 44, who was recovering from a broken hip and was also looking after a 91-year-old wheelchair-bound veteran when the attack happened, said he was left ‘outraged and very angry’.

Abdullah showed no remorse and told officers he had done ‘nothing wrong’ adding: ‘F*** him and f*** his medals.’

The medals Mr House was wearing were awarded to former paratrooper Company Sgt Major Steadman who fought at Dunkirk and in North Africa.

During an illustrious career he was awarded an array of medals including the Palestine Medal, The Africa Star, The Italy Star and the 1939-1945 Star.

In a statement read at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court yesterday, Mr House said: ‘This is one of the most important days of the year for me because my grandfather fought in Word War II.

‘Since he died in 1991 I have always worn his medals for him. I have been attending Remembrance Day parades for as long as I can remember.’

Falklands veteran Chris Purcell, a parade martial with the Royal British Legion in Portsmouth, described Abdullah’s actions as ‘despicable’.

The 50-year-old former petty officer said: ‘To spit on the medals of a man who fought for our country is disgusting. It’s a huge insult.

‘Everyone in this country should be able to wear their medals and the medals of their relatives with pride.’

US members of Somalia extremists urge recruitment
(AFP) via GOOGLE NEWS ^ | April 10, 2009 | n/a
Posted on April 11, 2009 1:12:39 PM PDT by Cindy

22 hours ago WASHINGTON (AFP) — American recruits of Somali extremists addressed a press conference in the conflict-wracked country this week to rally other youths to join their jihad (holy war), a US monitoring group said Friday. On April 5, “two American members of the Mujahideen Youth Movement (MYM) identified as Abu-Muslim and Abu Yaxye” spoke at the news conference and acknowledged that “many” Somali-Americans are “all over Somalia to join the jihad,” said the SITE Intelligence Group.

The pair said they are “Somali youth” from the United States and are stationed near the southern port of Kismayo.

“Some of us are still in training, others are on the frontline of the jihad.
