Amidst the flooding of Germany with new migrants from the Middle East — many of whom are suspected jihadist fighters ISIS claims to have planted among the refugees — comes this stark reminder of what happens when Islamist extremists roam free among us.
As the International Business Times reports:
German police have killed a suspected Islamist after he attacked a policewoman with a knife in Berlin. Rafik Mohamad Yousef, a 41-year-old Iraqi, lived in the city and was considered part of the capital’s Islamist scene.
“He had been convicted of being a member of a terrorist association and of being involved in a plot to murder the Iraqi prime minister Ayad Allawi,” Berlin police said on Twitter. Prosecution service spokesman Martin Steltner identified the man as “Rafik Y”.
A passer-by called police to report of the incident on Heerstrasse, in western Berlin’s Spandau area. Four police cars reached the area; the man attacked one of the officers who got out of her car was subsequently shot dead by the other officers.
The 41-year-old died of his injuries, according to dpa German news agency. The policewoman injured in the attack was flown to a hospital in a rescue helicopter. Berlin’s homicide squad is currently investigating the case.
In 2008, Yousef was one of three Iraqi men sentenced to jail terms for belonging to Ansar al-Islam, an Iraqi militant group with close links to al-Qaeda. He was sentenced to prison by the regional court in Stuttgart in 2008 for membership of a terrorist organisation and freed on bail but ordered to wear an electronic tag. He reportedly removed the tag before the attack.
Now, in what may very well be the ancient jihadist strategy of al Hijra playing out as the world watches — as “refugees” are welcomed, or perhaps more aptly, invading — thousands more such Islamic extremists soon may be roaming Germany, the rest of Europe — and, yes, the United States. In fact, just yesterday the Obama administration discussed raising the limit on the number of refugees from around the world allowed to enter the United States — from 70,000 this year to 85,000 next year and 100,000 in fiscal 2017, according to Bloomberg View.
What else do we have in store from the “Religion of Peace”?
