    ST. LOUIS
    A man apparently killed himself in the waiting room of the Veterans Affairs hospital in St. Louis on Monday.

    A 62-year-old man’s body was found in the waiting room of John Cochran Division at 4:19 a.m., police told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

  2. They were roommates who lived seemingly ordinary lives. One chopped vegetables at a Brooklyn gyro shop; another worked at a shopping mall kiosk. Like many young people, they spent considerable time online.

    But Abdurasul Juraboev and Akhror Saidakhmetov came to the attention of the FBI when Juraboev posted an ominous message on a terrorist-affiliated website: He was willing to engage in an act of martyrdom on U.S. soil by killing then-President Barack Obama to “strike fear in the hearts of infidels.” The investigation subsequently revealed that Juraboev and Saidakhmetov, a co-conspirator, planned to travel to Turkey and then Syria to wage violent jihad on behalf of ISIS. And that Saidakhmetov had also posted messages on the Internet supporting ISIS.

    Juraboev later communicated online with an Iraq-based ISIS website administrator, who encouraged Juraboev to travel to ISIS-controlled territories to fight with the terrorist group. Juraboev indicated his willingness to support the activities of ISIS and said he wanted to leave the United States undetected to go to the Middle East.

  3. Millionaire Poverty Pimps Fight ‘Income Inequality’
    There’s a reason Washington D.C. is the most unequal city in the country.
    March 27, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    Bernie Sanders, Michael Moore and Elizabeth Warren, three lefty millionaires, got together to solve “income inequality” in a town hall broadcast live from the Capitol visitors center.

    Washington D.C., where two out of the three parasites do business, has the worst income inequality in the country. The bottom fifth of Washington D.C. account for just 2% of the city’s income. It has one of the highest poverty rates in the country and the highest food stamp use. And under Obama, the Imperial City of the politicians and the poor was surrounded by some of the wealthiest districts in the country.

    “Income Inequality in America: The Rise of Oligarchy and Collapse of the Middle Class,” the Sanders, Warren and Moore town hall, comes to progs from the most unequal and oligarchic city in America

    If Bernie, Liz and Michael really want to see income inequality, they can take a walk away from the marble and glass edifices of big government to see what big government had wrought. It isn’t any of their usual villains, the corporations and banks, who made Washington D.C. so miserable.

    It’s the triumph of socialism.

  4. Minnquisition Part Deux
    Leftist educrats demonize Disney, indoctrinate students and intimidate parents.
    March 27, 2018
    Lloyd Billingsley

    In the Edina, Minnesota, public schools, leftist educrats have been indoctrinating eighth-grade students in racist “white privilege” dogma under the guise of a 21st century “literacy” class. As parents discovered, this class turned out far more illiterate and oppressive than they originally feared.

    “They were discussing in class how Disney movies are both sexist and racist,” one parent noted on social media. “One whole class period was spent on how they were sexist, and another entire class period was spent on how they were racist.”

    One student argued that argue that Beauty and the Beast character Belle read books and was not interested in a man or husband. The teacher countered that when Belle trades herself for her father as the prisoner of the Beast, she was suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome,” which may have left the 13-year-olds puzzled.

    In 1973, thieves took four hostages from the Sveriges Kreditbank and held them for six days. One hostage told Swedish prime minister Olaf Palme she trusted her captors but feared that she would die in a police raid. The syndrome was also on display when newspaper heiress Patricia Hurst developed a bond with her Symbionese Liberation Army captors and helped them rob a bank.

    This syndrome has nothing to do with Beauty and the Beast but the leftist Edina indoctrinators see the oppression of women everywhere. As one parent lamented, “it makes my stomach churn thinking about that class,” which also taught kids that Disney’s The Little Mermaid was sexist because Prince Eric fell in love with Ariel even though she didn’t have a voice.

  5. Woman Who Crashed Car into Broward Sheriff’s Office Frequented Radical Pompano Mosque
    From committed Christian to fervent Muslim to apparent suicide bomber.
    March 27, 2018
    Joe Kaufman

    What would cause 34-year-old mother Lasandra Johnson to attempt to turn her red Toyota Camry into a car bomb targeting local law enforcement? She had been in trouble with the law before. Was this a way to get back at authority? Or was it related to her newfound association with a radical mosque? Given the Islamic Center of South Florida’s ties to extremism, the latter is a very likely scenario.

    Shortly before 11:30 am, on Monday, March 21st, Lasandra Lavette Johnson drove a red Toyota Camry loaded with accelerants and a full tank of gas into the Pembroke Pines, Florida district substation of the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO). Following impact, a fire erupted from the car. According to a worker on the scene, Johnson was “engulfed in flames.” Johnson was hospitalized with burn wounds and later charged with “arson and burglary.” News reports about the attack did not mention the fact that Johnson was a devout Muslim, thus omitting a potentially crucial aspect of the story.

    In May 2017, as evidenced on her social media, Johnson had gone through a major transformation. She went from being a committed Christian, posting images of Jesus on the cross, and professing her wholehearted belief in him, to being a fundamentalist Muslim, wearing the hijab (head covering), and attending mosque. Finding religion for Johnson seemed to be a way to escape from her former life of partying and drugs. Indeed, Johnson had been arrested, in May 2012, for cocaine possession, followed by a probation violation, in November 2012.

  6. Voter Fraud Dems Freak Out Over Citizenship Census Question
    March 27, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    The left loses its mind every hour and you can watch the madness live on CNN or MSNBC. But sometimes it really is worried. This is one of those times.

    Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that a question on citizenship status will be reinstated to the 2020 decennial census questionnaire to help enforce the Voting Rights Act (VRA). Secretary Ross’s decision follows a request by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to add a question on citizenship status to the 2020 decennial census.

    The citizenship question will be the same as the one that is asked on the yearly American Community Survey (ACS). Citizenship questions have also been included on prior decennial censuses. Between 1820 and 1950, almost every decennial census asked a question on citizenship in some form. Today, surveys of sample populations, such as the Current Population Survey and the ACS, continue to ask a question on citizenship.

    On December 12, 2017, DOJ requested that the Census Bureau reinstate a citizenship question on the decennial census to provide census block level citizenship voting age population (CVAP) data that is not currently available from government surveys. DOJ and the courts use CVAP data for the enforcement of Section 2 of the VRA, which protects minority voting rights.

    Of course the data also provides all sorts of useful information. And it will help expose voter fraud and make a mockery of some Dem districts which have plenty of residents, but few citizens.

  7. Educating America’s Adversaries
    China’s engineers are building China’s military. Who taught them?
    March 27, 2018
    Michael Cutler

    By imposing tariffs on certain Chinese imports, President Trump has followed through on a significant campaign promise to address his entirely understandable concerns about Chinese unscrupulous trade practices and in that nation’s theft of U.S. intellectual property, otherwise known as espionage.

    China ceaselessly and belligerently hacks U.S. computers, including corporate computers and government computers. China constructed an artificial island in the South China Sea and has threatened military action if our vessels approach too closely.

    Even as China rattles its sabers at the United States, it is arguably building up its military forces faster than any other country on earth and, unbelievably, with the assistance of none other than the United States.

    As we shall shortly see, those sabers being rattled by the Chines government could likely not have been constructed without the unintended assistance of the United States.

    In point of fact, you could say that where China is concerned, the United States has, all too often, acted irrationally against its own best interests in dealing with that totalitarian communist regime and continues to do so.

    China’s actions and threats are certainly not befitting a nation that has been granted Most Favored Nation trade status. China is not acting as a trading partner or ally but rather as an adversary.

  8. Diversity Isn’t Important, Competence Is
    March 27, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    Meritocracy is the latest hate crime.

    Several employees at the Interior Department have told CNN that Secretary Ryan Zinke repeatedly says that he won’t focus on diversity, an apparent talking point that has upset many people within the agency.

    Three high-ranking Interior officials from three different divisions said that Zinke has made several comments with a similar theme, saying “diversity isn’t important,” or “I don’t care about diversity,” or “I don’t really think that’s important anymore.”

    Each time, Zinke followed with something along the lines of, “what’s important is having the right person for the right job,” or “I care about excellence, and I’m going to get the best people, and you’ll find we have the most diverse group anyone’s ever had,” the sources said.

    Wait?

    People are being hired based on the content of their character not their skin color? Have we learned nothing from apartheid? Why won’t Zinke reject the lessons of the civil rights movement and embrace progressive segregation instead?

  9. Obama’s Iran Negotiator Accuses Bolton of “Encouraging Enemies”
    March 26, 2018
    Daniel Greenfield

    Of all the people who shouldn’t be writing an editorial headlined, “Trump and Bolton’s Plan to Isolate Allies and Encourage Enemies”, Wendy Sherman tops the list.

    But here she is anyway with exactly that article in the New York Times.

    There’s no doubt that Wendy knows a lot about isolating allies and encouraging enemies. She led Iran negotiations under Hillary Clinton and North Korean negotiations under her husband. The end results of both were complete, unmitigated disasters that destabilized their respective regions.

    The Iran negotiations in particular alienated Israel, the Saudis, the UAE and countless others even as it encouraged Iran to ramp up its expansionist ambitions leading to an intensification of the conflicts in Syria, Yemen, etc… Make no mistake about it, all that blood is on Obama’s hands. And on the hands of cronies like Sherman.

    The woman was found dead in the backyard of a home in the 1000 block of Maitland Drive N.E at about 9:30 a.m Sunday.

    Investigators say the victim and Bettahar are known to each other and they believe the homicide happened at the home.

  11. The Daily Stormer, a white nationalist and neo-Nazi website that was seen as an instrumental force behind the ‘Unite the Right’ fiasco in Charlottesville last summer, was thrown off of the Internet capriciously by Cloudfire CEO Matthew Prince shortly after that event took place.

    “I woke up this morning in a bad mood and decided to kick them off the Internet,” he said last year.

    Since then, Daily Stormer has appeared on many different hosts and registrars but has remained on the web. Prince is now suffering the consequences for his decision, as his company is being sued by adult entertainment providers who demand that other sites engaging in copyright infringement be removed from his services in similar fashion to Daily Stormer.

    Cloudflare’s previous policy was never to remove any website unless they had received a court order to do so. Lawful websites are now demanding that Cloudflare stop hosting websites engaging in blatant piracy, using the Daily Stormer’s removal as a precedent of sorts. In response, Cloudflare is asking for this information to be removed from the on-going liability case filed by porn producer, ALS Scan.

The doors obviously can be locked autonomously and I bet, for safety reasons of course, you cannot unlock them from the inside and there is no way, to avoid hijacking of course, to take over the speed or direction of this demonic contraption.

      • Never before have I been a luddite, but I am now.

        Just wait until you’ve had a chance to rub shoulders with the IoT (Internet of Things). All of this stuff you see right now is just mouse nuts.

        SIDEBAR: The IoT will be how factories and energy facilities communicate with each other. It will also have residential uses. One of the most famous being a bar code scanner built into your refrigerator’s door frame. If you remove the milk carton and do not replace it back inside, your domestic Agent will add milk to that week’s shopping list.

        The foregoing is just a minuscule example of how the IoT will facilitate personal living. It will also represent one of the most massive potential violations of privacy in all human history. Making police states like the USSR or Red China look benign is difficult to do, but a successfully implemented IoT would allow for profiling private activities of specific individuals to such an extent that makes Moscow and Beijing look like raw beginners.

        Periodically, do a search on your own name (and address) and see the massive paper trail that has been left behind in your wake. Mine is almost nonexistent.

        Perhaps it is now more clear why I loathe smart phones, credit cards, social media, and “apps” in only out of general principle. All of them are designed to collect data about you. As Forbes Magazine contributor, Scott Goodson, notes:

        If you’re not paying for it, you become the product.

        I have seen few other modern memes with more truth behind them.

        This devastatingly entitled generation thinks it is merely a happy coincidence that all these smart phone applications are available for free. After all, why else would multi-million dollar companies go into business if not for the explicit convenience of Snowflakes and alleviation of their heartrending personal boredom?

        A quick glance at television will confirm this. What was one of the last century’s most promising technologies has gone from prestigious, costly, indoor furnishing (see: “Wooden Television” – William Gibson) to ubiquitous digital picture frame with special benefits.

        As network broadcast television really hit its stride (1980–1990s), is when Nielsen ratings had more importance than ever before. By that time, they were literally giving away the TV sets. Then cable and satellite feeds came to town and spoiled all the fun.

        Between Liberal academic instructors and negligent parenting, there are now in the pipeline a few generations of incredibly naïve and dangerously misinformed youth who are premium grade subversive cannon fodder.

        Weaning these untried Red–Green hatchlings away from their hyper-addictive Social Media pap and over to the soul-crushing actinic glare of objective reality will be neither pretty nor easy.

    “Vatican security is on high alert as large crowds arrive for Holy Week and Easter, with Italy’s security chief confirming the existence of “looming threats” that warrant extra caution.

    Franco Gabrielli, the head of Italian police, assured Pope Francis on Monday that the men and women of the police force “will continue to guarantee the security of this holy see and of your person, and of this great and extraordinary city of Rome, the seat of Christianity, which is targeted by terrorist and jihadist propaganda as a symbol to strike.”…”

    The attack — caught on camera by Barboza and a bystander — left her with a broken nose, seven staples in the back of her head and seven stitches in the front.

    “My nose is the worst of it,” she said Sunday, days after the Thursday afternoon beating. “I can’t even breathe out of it.”

  16. If you are going to introduce someone who needs to be red-pilled, and who is completely new to this debate, here is an excellent video to start them off with:

  17. Richard: Please click through and read the entire article. What the people/kids of varying age don’t seem to understand is that back in the 70s many of the so called reasonable gun laws were tried in one state or more. I remember a time when in the North Eastern States if someone invaded you house you were required to retreat out the opposite side of your home rather then defend it. If the invader chased you after you exited you home you were then allowed to defend yourself. People were sent to prison for defending their homes from invaders like the incidents detailed in the article. It has taken the law abiding people who don’t want to live in fear a long time to bring the US legal code back into common sense defense you our right of self defense. We are still fighting that fight, over the weekend I heard on Dem say that anyone using a weapon to defend themselves were vigilantes that were taking the law into their own hands. He meant what he said, that is what he and other gun control advocates think, self defense is taking the law into your hands.

    The remake of the movie Death Wish is playing in the theaters, the original movie Death Wish with Charles Bronson was made during the bad days of common sense gun laws. The remake is being made as once again New York is turning into a sewer where the criminals have all of the rights and the victims have none. This is why we fight to keep the “common sense gun laws” from being put back on the law books.

    Make No Mistake – The Gun Controllers Want to Take Away Your Right to Self-defense

    In August 1999, British farmer Tony Martin, whose home and farm had been invaded multiple times over a span of years, grabbed a pump action shotgun and opened fire on a pair of would-be burglars he discovered in his home, killing 16-year-old Fred Barras and wounding 33-year-old Brendon Fearon in the leg.

    Instead of some free counseling and maybe even a medal for his act of heroism, Martin was arrested by British authorities, charged with murder and wounding with intent, and sentenced to life in prison. Although his sentence was eventually reduced to manslaughter, Martin was denied early release based on the fact that he had “shown no remorse and would continue to pose a danger to…”

    Wait for it…

    “…any other burglars.”

  18. Trump Suggests Using Military Funds to Build His Wall
    By Susan Jones | March 26, 2018 | 5:57 AM EDT

    (CNSNews.com) – After threatening to veto a $1.3 trillion spending bill that funded many Democrat priorities, President Trump ended up signing the deficit-boosting measure on Friday.

    Trump said he wasn’t happy about it — neither were many conservatives — but his desire to boost military spending and national security “overrode” his disappointment in other items that he considered to be a “waste of money.”

    Early Sunday morning, Trump indicated that he might find a way to build his wall, even though the bill he signed bars spending on anything other than “fences” and “levees.”

    He tweeted about it: “Because of the $700 & $716 Billion Dollars gotten to rebuild our Military, many jobs are created and our Military is again rich. Building a great Border Wall, with drugs (poison) and enemy combatants pouring into our Country, is all about National Defense. Build WALL through M!” (M stands for military.)

  19. Over the last four years, over 27,000 asylum seekers have disappeared following expulsion orders from Sweden; 4,500 of them were children.

    A total of 223 underage asylum seekers have been reported missing following expulsion decision in January and February this year alone. They join thousands of their peers who have gone under radar in recent years, the Swedish daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported, citing an increase compared with the same period in 2017.

    Some of the “lost” children remain in the country as vagrants, whereas others turned to other EU countries in search of asylum. Acting Children’s Ombudsperson Anna Karin Hildingson Boqvist said this trend was worrying, calling for more measures to prevent children seeking asylum from “missing.”

    “The situation is extremely acute. All children who disappear need to be sought after. It is important that there is clarity over who bears responsibility for a disappeared child, and it applies to both unaccompanied minors and children living in a family,” Boqvist said.

    When a child goes missing, search procedures are initiated immediately by the police. However, this doesn’t always apply due to the lack of national guidelines for children undergoing asylum procedures.

    “It would be a grave mistake for Europe, which claims to be a global force, to push Turkey out of its expansion policy,” Erdo?an said during a joint news conference at the Turkey-EU summit in the Bulgarian city of Varna.

    “Our operations against terrorism not only contribute to the security of ourselves and the Syrians but also to the security of Europe,” he said.

    “We now expect strong support [from Europe] on sensitive issues such as the fight against terrorism instead of rambling and unjust criticism,” said the president.

    “I hope that we together have taken the first step of restoring confidence between the EU and us [Turkey] today, but it is not enough to say that we took this step; it has to be taken in concrete terms,” said Erdo?an.

    “We hope that we have left a difficult period in Turkey-EU relations behind,” he said.

    Regarding visa-free travel for Turkish nationals within the Schengen area, Erdo?an said Ankara had submitted the necessary paperwork to the EU Commission in early February.

    “We told the EU side that its task should be completed as soon as possible,” he added.

    Additionally, Erdo?an said Ankara was hoping the process to update the customs union with the EU would begin…”

      Participants at the Varna meeting “may have been well-intentioned, but the practices do not verify this good intention,” he added.

      “We are uncomfortable that Turkey’s struggle against all terrorist organizations is seen be seen as an obstacle to our relations,” Y?ld?r?m said, in apparent reference to EU criticism of Ankara’s sweeping crackdown based on supposed “anti-terror” measures.

      The prime minister said Turkey would “maintain its perspective for full membership of the EU,” while stressing that it should continue in a way that “suits the interests of both sides.”

      If Turkey’s full membership bid is to come to an end, it should be the EU side that decides to walk away first, he added.

      “What is the decision of the European Union regarding Turkey? We cannot allow the EU to wear Turkey out,” Y?ld?r?m said.

      He claimed that Turkey has “fulfilled its obligations to the EU” but the process is in a standstill because of “problems and political obstructions” generated by Brussels.

      “Will the EU proceed with a new vision, a vision of enlargement, an inclusive vision? Or will it proceed by retiring into its shell?” Y?ld?r?m said.

      His remarks came one day after a Turkey-EU leaders meeting with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Varna, Bulgaria.”

    • Turkish President Recept Tayyip Erdogan said on March 26 it would be a “grave mistake” for Europe to push Turkey out of its expansion policy.

      For once, the Turkish Troll™ is absolutely right! It will be a tremendous mistake if the EU does not keep around a sufficient number of strong, young Turkish backs to dig all of the graves that indigenous Europeans are cheerfully queuing up for.

      If anyone in Europe really wants to know what things would look like with Turkey included in the Schengen Agreement, just look the fü¢k all around you right now! The recent tsunami of Nafri and MME (Muslim Middle East) thugs economic tourists is merely the proverbial “camel’s nose” being poked inside Europe’s socioeconomic tent.

      Does anyone seriously think that, once admitted into the EU, Turkey will not simply continue its cornerstone program of Islamic hejira by acting as an unobstructed conduit for Muslim immigrants terrorists?

      As with, in all of Islam and the West, Europe’s prospective dealings with Turkey will forever be “no-win” situations. Regardless of whatever action is eventually taken, the outcome for Europe (and the Free World) will be negative.

      It’s how Islam is intentionally structured, and it is this same exact same, lopsided pre-configuration, which guarantees such a dismal fate “when” (not “if“) Islam finally exits the stage of modern history.

      All throughout the human record, some truly brutal and tyrannous ideologies have been able to rattle about the planet for hundreds of years at-a-time without attracting much in the way of undue attention. All of that changed, forever, in 1945 …

      A world that has ipso facto entered the Nuclear Age is one of an entirely different complexion from everything of that which preceded it (even if only by just a few years earlier). Just as a single century has seen transportation go from horse and buggy to space shuttle, so has the past 100 years of military doctrine gone from one of Spanish Armadas, The Gallipoli Peninsula, and bulk invasions, to the possibility of flat-out annihilation.

      In a world properly absent of hyper-genocidal doctrines, the advent of nuclear weapons would not typically pose such an immediate and intrinsic threat to all of humanity and biological life in general. However, here on planet Earth, we have a spoiler in play. It’s name is “Islam” and all bets are off until this sick, runt puppy is strangled in the kennel.

      Sadly—ever since its inception some 1,400 years ago—Islam continues to be a, constantly retrogressive (is that even possible?!?) , perpetually churning cauldron of predation, hatred, child abuse, racism, misogyny, rape, criminality, and genocide that marks itself out as a not-too-promising candidate in the category of quasi-survival oriented, post-nuclear, MME supremacist ideologies.

  22. Terrorism risk remains high – Frontex (ansa, Mar 27. 2018)

    “Fabrice Leggeri, the Executive Director of EU border agency Frontex, said Tuesday that the state of alert about potential terrorist attacks remains high.

    “(The terrorism threat) remains high and we must be certain that there are no frontier crossings to the EU that are not intercepted, as this would be to the detriment of European security,” Leggeri told the European Parliament as he reported on the Themis operation.

    He said Frontex aircraft had detected un-intercepted migrant flows from Algeria and Tunisia, adding that this raised “security concerns”.

    A 59-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday in Foggia on suspicion of being an ISIS member.

    He allegedly indoctrinated children on jihad, saying death in battle was the only way to reach heaven, during lessons he gave twice a week at an Islamic centre in the southern city, sources said. Investigators secretly recorded the lessons given by Abdel Rahman, an Italian citizen originally from Egypt, for months.

    “I call on you to combat the unbelievers, cut their heads off with your swords, blow up their heads with your explosive belts,” he allegedly told the children.

    “It’s necessary to smash the skulls of the unbelievers and drink their blood to achieve victory”.

    The situation of the children who had these classes with Rahman has been brought to the attention of the local court for minors. Court documents presented in relation to the case feature videos and documents the suspect alleged shared via Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter on the jihad and how to prepare weapons.

    These included talk about the needs to transform churches in mosques and targeted Italy for a terror attack.”

  23. String of knife attacks further fuels debate over refugees and violence (thelocal, Mar 27, 2018)

    “A spate of bloody knife attacks in recent weeks has led to concerns about a rise in knife crime. The fact that teenage refugees have often been the culprits has also fired up right-wing critics of the government.

    On Tuesday morning a 24-year-old woman’s life still hung in the balance after she was stabbed on Saturday in the town of Burgwedel in Lower Saxony. After undergoing an emergency operation she was placed in an artificial coma.

    The woman and her boyfriend had reportedly become involved in an argument with a group of three teenagers from Syria. When the situation turned aggressive, the woman attempted to intervene, but one of the teenagers pulled out a knife and stabbed her.

    On the same day in Bochum a 15-year-old schoolboy was stabbed during a fight involving around 20 teenagers. A 16-year-old from Syria was arrested over the attack. The victim was treated in hospital but his situation is not life threatening.

    A day earlier, at Wiesbaden central station an argument escalated between two groups of men. One of them pulled a knife and left three others injured. The suspected culprit is from Afghanistan.

    The series of bloody incidents over the weekend come in the wake of two murderous stabbings by refugees in recent months, at least one of which appears to have been motivated by jealousy.

    In Flensburg an Afghan teenager was arrested early this month on suspicion of stabbing a girl a year his junior to death. The teenager was said to have often visited his victim before the murder. That crime followed another brutal murder in December in the town of Kandel in Rhineland Palatinate where a 15-year-old girl was murdered by her ex-boyfriend, also an asylum seeker from Afghanistan.

    Not all the suspects in the recent spate of stabbings have been refugees. In Hanover over the weekend a group of three masked individuals attacked a 17-year-old, stabbing him in the leg after he had refused to hand over his mobile telephone. The trio reportedly spoke accentless German. In Berlin over the weekend at a nightclub, an Iraqi man was furthermore stabbed by a German following an argument.

    At least seven knife attacks were recorded last weekend alone.

    And in Berlin early this month a teenage German boy was arrested on suspicion of murdering a 14-year-old girl. She was found dead in her apartment with several stab wounds.

    Nonetheless, the prevalence of asylum seekers as suspects in these crimes has given voice to those who say that the government’s liberal refugee policies have made the country less safe.

    “The knives are growing longer, the attackers are ever younger. The number of knife attacks by asylum seekers grows constantly,” Alice Weidel, co-parliamentary leader of the Alternative for Germany, wrote on Facebook on Monday.

    “I call on Interior minister Horst Seehofer to immediately take the suspects into detention pending deportation and then to eject them from the country,” she said. “It needs to be clear that the state is using all its power to protect its citizens.”

    The German government in September 2015 opened its borders to refugees from Syria, leading to mass arrivals of asylum seekers over several months. Between 2015 and the middle of 2017, over 1.3 million asylum seekers arrived in the country.

    With police statistics showing that refugees and asylum seekers are significantly over-represented in violent crime statistics, the political mood has been raw for some time.

    In 2016, irregular migrants (a category including refugees, asylum seekers and people awaiting deportation) were suspects in some 12 percent of homicide cases, despite making up less than two percent of the population.

    But there are currently no comprehensive statistics on knife crime, making it difficult to make accurate statements about the severity of the increase in stabbings. Police unions are now calling for knife crime to be published in nationwide statistics.

    Dietmar Schilff, a spokesman for the German Police Union, told DPA on Tuesday that more and more teenagers were carrying knives around with them.

    “We are witnessing a dangerous trend – within a split second a life-threatening situation can develop,” he said.

    “We need to know where such attacks are happening most regularly and who is carrying them out, so that we can react better,” he added.”
