In the past few days, we reported on Imam Ammar Shahin’s disgraceful anti-Semitic-laced sermon where he called for the “annihilation of the Jews.”
In response to the sermon, Shahin’s mosque defended his behavior, clarifying that he really meant to “destroy” the Jews. not “annihilate” them. (Shahin later apologized).
Similar to the mosque’s pathetic attempt to split hairs and excuse the inexcusable, the interior minister of Hamburg, Germany, Andy Grote, engaged in the same type of politically correct nonsense in the days after a terrorist struck a supermarket in Germany’s second largest city, killing one man and injuring six others.
In typical European fashion, where multiculturalism has completely subsumed rational thought, Grote made a mind-boggling comment about the radical Muslim terrorist who committed the vile act.
“He was known as an Islamist but not a jihadist,” he stated.
The 26-year-old attacker, identified as Ahmad A, is a Palestinian failed asylum seeker born in the United Arab Emirates, registered on a database of known Islamists, Grote confirmed on Saturday.
The attacker arrived in Germany in 2015 but could not be deported as he held no identification papers, and had mental health issues.
An alleged witness claimed that the man shouted ‘Allahu Akbar!’ after stabbing his victims. He is thought to have been working alone.
He was known to be undergoing radicalisation, but authorities who were monitoring him didn’t consider him to be an Islamist militant.
The German government is playing a dangerous game with the lives of its own people; prioritizing the well-being of brutal Islamists over the safety of law-abiding citizens. Comments like the one on display from the interior minister are a victory for global jihad and a loss for Western civilization.
