An arsenal of weapons of radical islamists was excavated in NRW, North Rhine Westphalia. The “Top secret assignment” took one week and brought heavy war arsenal to the surface. This is what Hessian delegate Ismail Tipi (CDU) says.
According to information of the hessian CDU delegate Ismail Tipi a “top secret assignment” of the SEK in North Rhine Westphalia took place. In the cooler room of a vegetable vendor near a mosque, weapons were found and seized. “According to my information at this particular operation, an arsenal with heavy war weaponry was found.
The danger of arming of the fundamentalists and willing to resort to violence salafists in Germany is very high. This was shown clearly by this secret operation”, said Tipi on Friday at a press conference.
The Extremism expert also assumes that more weapons stocking took place in other cities. For instance the Hamburg intelligence service for constitutional protection also speaks of a heightened number of supporters of armed jihad.
In the meantime more than 300 people in Hamburg have been identified as supporters of armed jihad. The fear is that salafist sleepers, jihadists and IS terrorists in Germany find support through foreign intelligence services, that aren’t friendly to German interests. Through these weapons arsenals militant jihadists and sleepers will be equipped with weapons in their preparations for attacks”, the turkish born delegate says.
Politicians have to speak straight talk”
Tipi warns: “If these worries prove to be true, we can expect that these secret weapons arsenals will be used for terrorist attacks not only in Germany but in entire of Europe. It would be extremely negligent if we do not address this danger and do everything to find these arsenals.” One problem is that many battle seasoned young salafists come back to Germany from combat zones and implanted themselves among the stream of migrants, the press briefing further mentions.
“We have to see this threat and we need to act fast. Here, our security administration is asked to look at this very clearly and hard, to investigate precise, and to share as much of the information as possible among relevant administrations and services”, Tipi says.
And, he demands: “Politicians have to speak straight talk, they have to address the possible danger and threats, they have to educate the population and call for a full awakening and to report to the police any type of suspicious activity. The problem of Salafism and IS terror gets bigger and bigger if we don’t all react. Here, each and everyone of us is asked to step up.”
Tipi’s political engagement against radical Salafists has already led to death threats against him.
