The wanted man Jaber al-Bakr

THANKS to information received from the German internal intelligence service, police raided an apartment in Chemnitz in eastern Germany searching for a Syrian born individual identified as Jaber al-Bakr aged 22 who it is believed was intending to cause explosions in the town.

Although he was not in the premises, the officers found several hundred grams of explosives and have started a nationwide search for him.

Subsequent to this raid, they arrested two people at the local railway station and their luggage was searched for anything incriminating and a third person was arrested near to the raided apartment.

At this early stage, it is not known whether these three are part of a terrorist unit or indeed what the eventual target for the Syrian was to be but because the discovered explosives were so unstable it was intended to destroy them locally and after homes in the surrounding area were evacuated, holes were dug in a local green space to which the explosives were moved.

      We have all been warned well over the last ten years that Islam is a wicked system used to subjugate other peoples, using murder and mayhem. Some countries have already banned Islam, China and Angola are two, so when are then other civilised countries in the World following suit? Or wil it be left until bloody battles ensue on the streets of Europe? We need new leaders who are not afraid to take the only action possible. Send all the Arabic Muslims back to their wrecked countries so they can rebuild them with enforced democracies.
