Germany Warns Of "Highly Radicalized" ISIS Wives, Children

Authored by Jacob Bojesson via The Daily Caller,

The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency warned Sunday of the risk wives and children of Islamic State fighters pose upon their return to Europe.

About one-third of the close to 1,000 Germans who travelled to fight for ISIS have returned to the country.

Hans-Georg Maassen, the head of Germany’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), warned that many women and children “had become so radicalized and identify so deeply with IS-ideology that, by all accounts, they must also be identified as jihadis.”

“There are children who have been brainwashed and highly radicalized at ‘schools’ in IS-held areas,” Maassen said in an interview with Deutsche Presse Agentur.

 

“It’s a problem for us because many of these kids and teenagers can sometimes be dangerous.”

The number of terrorism-related cases investigated by German authorities have quadrupled over the past year, according to newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

Prosecutors have opened more than 900 cases so far in 2017, compared to 240 throughout 2016. Eighty cases related to terrorism reached the courts in 2013.

Germany’s federal police (BKA) estimates that 705 Islamist extremists are willing to carry out terror attacks, up from 600 during an estimate in February.

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV) recently said around 24,400 Islamists are active in the country but most of them don’t pose an immediate terror threat.

"Most of them don't pose an immediate threat"

What the fuck does that mean? They are an eventual threat instead? "They aren't likely to blow anything up within the next week or two, but probably will eventually, so in the meantime we'll just keep letting more of them in". But, it's hard to feel too sorry for them, they keep electing a government that promises more of this, same with every other country over there with the exception of Hungary.

to be "left alone" is easier, though... on the other side of an ocean

consider that the reality of the Greater Landmass includes people... walking. and China building railroads aplenty, "from shining sea to shining sea"

just remember the difficult discussion (nearly a spat) that the Australian PM had with Mr. Trump on how to reduce incentives on "boat people"

"simple" does not help. the realities of today's world are complex. simple, radical... is both in the way of real solutions. my two cents, take it as you want

'left alone' - too revolutionary (lol) Ghordo old chap.

Deep State requires CHAOS to keep THE GREAT UNWASHED's limited Intelligence & thought processes, focused on a Variety of Artificial Interspersed Enemies so that WE ALL might not focus upon the State's own Shortcomings, General Corruption & Evil Practices.

The "simply be left alone" comment was a wish and a dream. I think Ghordius misunderstood that.I agree with WTFUD. Whether you call it Deep State, national government, or TPTB, our autocratic societies behave similarly. Of course some nation states are more messed up that others, however, the tyrants all use similar means to control their populations. FEAR is one. They want foreign terrorists. Without them they would need domestic terrorists like AntiFa. And they make up boogey men to scare the population like "global warming" or an AI robot takeover.

Russia has by far the biggest battaillions of returning warriors. particularly Chechens

no worry? it would be stupid. as too much worry, though. accept... reality

"Reality is what you make it to be."

that's perception. specifically, individual perception

and when it's wrong, and it hits reality and breaks in pieces...

... that's when Cognitive Dissonance happens. or not, the human brain's capacity to remodel internal cherished narratives to fit new perceptions of reality being quite... vast

Beck tells us that we live in risk societies. Perhaps there is only so much we can control but to a certain extent we can shape our realities. If I get up in the morning and decide not to do anything, I will not eat at the end of the day. Action, meet consequence. We can think of different kinds of scenarios of future realities and plan accordingly. After all, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So, we project the future, way the options, make risk assessments in order to create or control reality. Often we base that on history. After all, if you ignore history then chances are big that the same mistakes are made again. So these are things that we can know. Then, to speak with Rumsfeld, there are things we don't know and things we don't know that we don't know.....Oh fuck it.

Angela Merkel is employed by the German public to protect them and act in their best interests. She has failed to do either of these things and has  deliberately betrayed the German people. Now she is unable to form a government, she has lost the support of many long term CDU supporters, rapes and crime are spinning out of control and terrorists have been allowed into the country. Issuing warnings about some of the predictable consequences of Merkel's betrayal is  just cynical.

This argument about population reproduction is so bogus.We were taught for decades that the planet had limits to population. So we socialized population reduction. First world people, that is, while the third world continued to over populate.At the same time, robots have assumed many of the roles so we don't need as many people.Then the UN comes along and reverses course. What is their logic? Why does Germany need more babies? Who stands to benefit?If you want a better world, think quality rather than quantity.

These Jihadi's who were recruited in the UK/EU, trained by British Forces in Aldershot or Colchester or the more sophisticated Officer Material (lol) at Sandringham, before dropped into Syria to fight Assad in ZATO's ambitious attempt at Regime Change & Resource/Land Theft, in the country . . . . . LOST.

Well, to be fair he said in and not by But then he says that they were trained by the British forces. I don't know about that but I do know for instance that the KLA in Kosovo received training from the English (mostly secret service) and also received weaponry from them. Mujahedheen were flown in from Afghanistan to Bosnia. The Muslims in Bosnia received weapons in violation of the arms embargo which prolonged the war there. Recently, weapons from allover Eastern Europe were cargoed by dodgy carries and American Hercules planes into Syria.That is not the EU doing that though. But they do little to stop it.

+1 here you encapsulated what drives me mad about those discussions, including with you

"That is not the EU doing that though. But they do little to stop it."

correct. but... who is "they"? the org? or... the capitals?

I repeatedly posit here that the EU is a proto-condederation. driven by the capitals, be them Dublin or Rome or Berlin or Paris or Warsaw or Budapest

meanwhile, your "they do too little to stop it"... sounds like you wish for a stronger, more forceful EU org willing and capable to tell those capitals where the "buck stops"... while maintaining an eurosceptic stance, too

as for the Brexiteers, it sounds like "eating cake, have it too"

it's an alliance. by members, for members, with the tiniest of orgs catering for shared standards and... period

@Ghordius,The EU already has the authority to stop the human trafficing from Africa BUT DOES NOTHING!Who does it? Organized crime in cahoots with NGOs. So sure, capitalists run amuck because both the Mafia and the NGOs are getting paid to move these people. The NGO boats violate the rules, yet still operate. The EU keeps the doors wide open (and does nothing about organized crime). Perhaps that is because many EU politicians are influenced (paid off) by organized crime groups.

If you try to post that article on Twatter, you'd get suspended for "daring" to criticize islam. The truth about that gutter cult Twatter calls "targeted abuse".

I'm 61 and currently not working.

I'll have to work again sometime since I listened to Jim Rickards, Harry Dent, Mike Maloney and others and put my life savings in silver and cash ten years ago instead of watching RT and putting a thousand dollars in Bitcoin at $5 like Max Keiser incessantly pleaded with me to do across my pc screen.

If I wasn't about one standard deviation from dead anyways I'd push 10F on the elevator and jump off the second floor of the Trump tower.

But back to my Islam point.

I spend my days reading example sentences in thousand page foreign language dictionaries one after the other while simultaneously listening to about ten hours of YouTube a day. It's a rainman paradise.

But after ten listening to hours of Greg Hunter, Stefan Molyneux, x22 Report, Infowars, Michael Savage, Michael Rivero and so on I almost go crazy. They're all good but it's like eating chocolate for ten hours.

You start to want something completely different.

So I flipped on the several hundred hours of the complete speeches and lectures of Anwar Alwaki, the terrorist we droned, which I stuck on my 160 gigabyte iPod classic.

I don't believe a single word, but wow. It's a completely different and self consistent world view with rhymes and chants sprinkled throughout.

After listening for ten hours to how transgender students at Lauriette University are demanding a panic button be installed in classrooms so they can run and push it during class because they don't feel safe because the teacher mis-pronouned them, after listening to a constant flow of bull hooey, and then listening to the deep rhymes of the recitation and fancy pronunciations and talk about community and the afterlife and God and family and sacrifice -- I can see how someone could take one look at libtards and snowflakes and triggered muscular women who dress up in vagina costumes and want to make a clean and total break and wear a beard, roll out a prayer rug and recite something in a cool Semitic language and call snowflakes kufaar.

If I was a Muslim I could wear fancy clothes, grow a nice beard, go anywhere and be part of an umma, hug fellow warriors without being gay and recite rhyming verses in Arabic about how transgender cry bullies should be pushed off of rooftops, instead of listening to "You're a flucking white male! You're a flucking white male! You're a flucking white male!" every God forsaken day.

I understand your frustration and I have been where you are.

At some point one comes to a difficult crossroad. Is Knowledge controlling you or are you controlling Knowledge? Is your life enriched by such things and do you have the means to effectuate change? I found sometimes it's just best to turn it off and take a hike.

I hope you make the last standard deviation more pleasurable because you don't deserve such stress.

Every one of the authors/speakers you mentioned are sociopaths.  Spend a few minutes researching what they are and do.  TLDR -- they get their kicks out of manipulation people for fun/wealth/power.  Sounds a lot like politicians and CEOs, doesn't it?We all have to learn to resist the opinions of others and make up our own minds.  That's called critical thinking.Sorry to hear about the mess you're in.  If all Trump accomplishes is  to convince millions that news is fake, he'll be the best prez in 50 years.  Sheeple need to wake the fuck up.
