Incident in Kassel, Hesse
Horror! 30-Year Old Asylum Seeker from Syria Throws Boiling Oil Into Janitor’s Face
June 25., 2018

Kassel – A 30-year old asylum seeker from Syria threw boiling oil into his janitor’s face on Friday around 3PM (CET) in Erzberger Straße. The janitor suffered severe burns on his face, his upper body and arms. The 30-year-old immediately had to be taken to a special clinic in Hannover. Police Spokesman Torsten Werner confirmed this to extratipp.com on Monday before noon.

The incident happened in the Kassel district Nordstadt in an apartment building. Upon request of the Kassel District Attorney, the 30-year-old was taken to the committing magistrate at the district court Kassel, who ordered custody, on Saturday.

Background: The two officers, who were lightly wounded, were investigating arson in the apartment building. There had been problems in the previous week: an unknown person had set a newspaper on fire in the building’s hallway, and later, a paper notice. When, on Friday, another paper notice was burning, the officers of office 11 for arson investigated in the apartment building.

The 30-year-old Syrian stated to have only limited command of the German language. Therefore, the officers asked him to come along with them to the precinct. There, an interpreter would have translated his statements. The asylum seeker turned around, took a pot filled with oil from the stove, and threw it onto the officers and the janitor. While the janitor was hit by the largest part of the hot oil, the officers overpowered and arrested the 30-year-old.

The arrested asylum seeker will have to answer for the suspicion of severe arson and severe assault.

Germany: Syrian “Youths” Attack Couple, When Wife Refuses To “Show Respect”

Mayor Shocked After Knife Attack

As police announce, Friday, just after 4 PM, a 51-year-old and his 43-year-old wife from Cottbus wanted to visit the Blechen-Carré on Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, when they were attacked by three Syrian youths aged 14, 15 and 17. They demanded precedence, says police spokesman Ines Filohn. They also demanded that the woman should show respect to them. When the woman refused to do so, the youths attacked her husband.

Two of them physically attacked the man and tried to push him over. Another from the group produced a knife. In this moment, a brave passer-by intervened and helped the husband. “With his courageous help, the man prevented worse from happening” says Ines Filohn. The security staff who were called seized the three suspects and held them until police arrived.

Mayor Holger Kelch is shocked: “It is appalling, and not tolerable for us as a city, and a state under the rule of law, what happened in these first days of January in Cottbus. Violence is not a way to encourage or resolve conflicts. My sympathies are with the aggrieved parties, I hope they get well soon and will be able to get over these experiences.”

Kelch and the police hope that the courageous passer-by will get into contact to support the investigations as a witness. “As a witness, he can call the phone number 0355 4937 1227 at the Cottbus police office, or any other police inspection“, says police spokesman Ines Filohn. According to our enquiry, as of Sunday, he has not yet contacted police.

“The lawful state will have to bare teeth, even if some lawsuits can be arduous and tedious”, says Holger Kelch. “I have appointed a meeting of the responsible administrative sectors, to discuss the situation. If we are responsible for the custodianship, we will do everything in our power, to make it clear to the youths which values and rules prevail in Germany and in Cottbus, and that they have to adhere to them. We will also contact the parents, to make it clear to them that their children’s behaviour will not remain without consequence”, says Kelch. “We will not have our city’s progress ruined by such incidents.”

In the meantime, witnesses were found, and surveillance recordings and the knife secured. The 14-year-old is already known to the police as a violent offender. The youths were handed over to their legal guardians. Criminal police begun investigations for dangerous battery. As the three suspects are minors, they will be tried under youth criminal law.

In general, attacks by foreign fellow citizens seem to become more frequent lately. “At least, this is the felt sense”, says Ines Filohn. “For exact numbers, we will have to wait for the analysis of the criminal statistics, which we will have in spring”, says the police spokesman.

Berlin: “You Unbeliever!” – Syrian Attacks Subway Passengers With Knife

An original translation from Die Welt. Incidents like these do not even make it to the front pages anymore, it is just the new German normal.

Man Attacks With Knife – Police Look Into Islamist background

January 02., 2018

On Silvester day [New Year’s Eve], a 23-year-old Syrian attacked a man in the Berlin subway and yelled at him: “You Unbeliever.” The man and all further victims were Germans. Now, the Land Office for Criminal Investigations investigates.

A 23-year-old attacked several people with a knife in Berlin-Schöneberg. This wounded a 50-year-old lightly. The intelligence service of the Land Office for Criminal Investigations is looking into whether there is an Islamistic background, a police spokesman announced upon our enquiry on Tuesday. The man from Syria was „mentally instable“. „Tagesspiegel“ had reported on the case.

The 21-year-old Syrian assaulted several people on Silvester day in the subway station Bayerischer Platz. Accordingly, he first asked the 50-year-old if he was a Turk.

When the man denied, he yelled “You unbeliever” and stabbed at him with the knife. The man suffered slight cutting wounds, but did not want medical treatment. The other people who were attacked were Germans, too.

Due to the confused mental state he was in, the 23-year-old was taken to a hospital and afterwards to a jail hospital. A detention order has already been issued.

Large-Scale Raids in Germany: Six “Refugee” IS Fighters Arrested For Preparing Attack on Christmas Market

Update, 5PM CET:
According to Focus, they have learnt from investigator circles that the arrested suspects were photographing rubbish bins, installed at hip height, on Kennedyplatz, where the Christmas Market will open soon. Investigators think this means the suspects intended to plant explosive devices in the rubbish bins. The suspects were also scouting the Limbecker Platz shopping mall and the nearby Rathaus-Galerie mall.

According to Hessenschau, data storage devices, mobile phones and laptops, and documents were seized. The investigators also found city maps of Essen with the Christmas Market location marked.

Six Arrests
Large-Scale Raid! IS terror suspects apparently planned attack on Christmas Market Essen

Tuesday, November 11, 2017, 1:59 PM CET

During large-scale raids in several German states on Tuesday, six alleged members of the Jihadist militia IS were arrested. They are suspected of having been preparing “an attack with weapons or explosives on a public target in Germany”, the General Prosecution Frankfurt announced.

The suspects accordingly planned an attack on the Christmas Market Essen, Hessischer Rundfunk Hessische Rundfunk learned from sources among the investigators. The plans for the attack were not yet completed. According to „Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger“ they probably planned an attack on a shopping mall in Essen.

As the „Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger“ (Wednesday edition) learned from sources among the investigators, one of the men, a 20-year-old asylum seeker, together with other persons, has been taking photographs of the shopping centre Limbecker Platz, Essen, shortly ago. The men pretended they were students of architecture. While they carried out this operation, they were allegedly already being observed by the authorities. The investigators became suspicious, as already in March, there was a terror threat to this shopping centre in downtown Essen. It remained close for several days. It is still not clear who was behind the threat.

These information are yet to be officially confirmed.

Police arrest six Syrians
The investigations are concerning six Syrians between 20 and 28 years old. Four of them are in Germany since December 2014, and two came as asylum seekers late summer 2015.

They are suspected to be members of a foreign terrorist organization and of preparing a grave subversive act of violence.

At the early Tuesday morning raid, 500 officers of the Hessian Land Office of Criminal Investigations and other police stations searched eight apartments in Kassel, Hannover, Essen and Leipzig. The authorities declined to specify more details.

Suspects entered Germany as Refugees
Welt first reported about the anti terror raid in several German states. Accordingly, hints by refugees led the investigators on the tracks of the six men. They had come, using false identities, as civil war refugees to Germany.
The witnesses stated that the men had been fighting for the terror militia IS in Syria. Investigations showed that the men had contact to each other and had radical-Islamic convictions, says the report.

Muslim born in France comes to understand that Islam and democracy are not miscible

Thank you Oz-Rita for all the work on this:

Text (in French) from this site:


But found at the site of these young “French Jewish Defense League” which also include a video (gruesome) where they seem to prepare him for his 72 virgins:


Jihadist sources report the death of Abou Al-Shaheed Faransi.

Before his death, the French jihadist, Abou Shaheed, called “Le Francais” (The French Man”) said:  “We don’t need the international community”. 

On 30 May 2014, jihadi sources did report the death of Abou Al-Shaheed Faransi (“The French Man”), member of the Islamic State of Irak and the Orient (EIIL) and a pin-up figure of the francophone Jihadist community. Abou Shaheed is said to have been killed during a fight against the Syrian Branch of Al-Quaida, Jabhat Al Nusra (JN). Violent fights have been reported for the control of the region of Deir Al-Zor,  rich in petrol, between l”EIIL and a coalition of islamist groups, including JN.

In February 2014 (date of this video?) he presents himself under the name of Abou Shaheed. He is 29 y.o. and has left France 10 months ago. He was then in the region of Alep, where reporter Claire Andrieux joined him via a social network.

Jihadists kill 31 rebels in Syria: monitor

  Fighting flared on Friday between rebels and forces loyal to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an Al-Qaeda affiliate that moved into Syria amid the armed uprising against President Bashar al-Assad in late spring last year.

It began when rebels, including Islamists, attacked checkpoints and bases manned by ISIL, which is accused of horrific abuses against other insurgents, activists and civilians in areas where they operate.

ISIL has also been accused of seeking hegemony by taking key roads and checkpoints from its rivals, and some Assad opponents have even accused it of serving regime interests.

The Free Syrian Army has vowed revenge after Al Qaeda linked militants assassinated a top rebel commander opening up the possibility of a conflict between Western-backed rebel forces and Islamists in Syria’s civil war.

The announcement is the latest sign of disarray in the armed opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has regained the upper hand more than two years into an insurgency that grew out of Arab Spring-inspired pro-democracy protests.

The Islamists smashed up one of the two shops that sold alcohol. That much was pretty inevitable, the locals agreed. The other off-licence had already closed, as had the casino on the outskirts of town.

They brought in a radical cleric from Egypt to preach Friday prayers, and set up a sharia court in the city’s new sports centre with the support of other brigades. They had their fiefdom — an entire city to run only 60 miles from Nato’S border.

A Syrian rebel group the Obama administration considers a terrorist organization is managing to obtain modern anti-tank weapons meant for other groups fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad, according to regional experts.

The Jihadist Jabhat al-Nusra militia is managing to secure weapons being supplied by Saudi Arabia and Qatar to rebel brigades affiliated to the Free Syrian Army, the experts say. The Obama administration considers al-Nusra a terrorist organization because of suspected links with al-Qaida.

The weapons include the Croatian-made M79 portable 90 mm anti-tank gun and M60 recoilless anti-tank weapons. Regional experts say Saudi Arabia and Qatar had been supplying such weapons to rebel units more acceptable to the West, mainly secular or nationalist-focused groups such as the Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigades fighting to oust the Assad government.

A U.S. Army veteran who was fighting for Syrian rebel forces says he is alive and well after a pro-Syrian government group posted a video on YouTube claiming that he had been killed.The bloodied face of someone resembling Eric Harroun, 30, of Phoenix, was shown in the video, which was posted Wednesday under the title, ‘Terrorists, including American Extremist “Eric Harroun” Have Been Terminated.’

But Harroun told MailOnline from his personal email account on Friday that ‘Syrian Media must be smoking something, because I am alive and well chilling in Istanbul having a martini at the moment.’

MailOnline obtained Harroun’s email address from a family member and has communicated with him in the past using the same email address.
