Apparently psychotherapy didn’t work. Perhaps because the young devout follower isn’t mentally ill. He’s religious; what are they going to do about that?  What they always do. Tell us to respect it as the bombs go off.
Why was he released? What did they hope would happen? This was inevitable. Just like the Gitmo jihadis, they always go back to Islam.

15 year old arrested for ISIS propaganda after jail release over plotting Austrian rail station attack,” RT, January 29, 2016 (thanks to Aron):

A 15-year-old Islamic State supporter who planned to blow up a Vienna railway station last year has appeared in an Austrian court once again, just months after being released from jail. The teen is now charged with distributing Islamic State propaganda.

The teenager – identified as Mertkan G in local media – was released from jail in June, after serving part of a two-year conditional sentence for supporting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and researching how to make a bomb on the internet. He was ordered to undergo psychotherapy while on probation.

However, he has now found himself in police custody once again, arrested early Wednesday morning in his mother’s apartment. He was found to be in possession of IS propaganda and is currently being held in St Pölten, Lower Austria, the Local reported.

The youth first became known to authorities last year, after his mother alerted police to say that her son was becoming increasingly radicalized.

During a search, authorities found data in the teen’s PlayStation console which included several bomb-building plans, Michaela Obenaus, a spokeswoman for prosecutors in St Pölten, said at the time. She added that police found “countless” IS propaganda photos and videos of beheadings, torture and mass executions on his laptop.

He later confessed that he was learning how to build a bomb and plotting attacks in crowded places, including Vienna’s Westbahnhof railway station. Unconfirmed reports at the time said that IS had recruited him over the internet and offered to pay him US$35,000 if he managed to carry out the attack.

Mertkan G came to Austria in 2007 as an asylum seeker, and is reportedly from a Turkish family.

In an effort to tackle extremism in the country, Austria opened a ‘de-radicalization’ center in December 2014. The hotlinereceived 115 calls in its first 50 days of operation, 28 of which were directly related to extremist activity.

    If nothing else, islam’s adherents have evidenced a real talent for recidivism when it comes to crimes against the West.

  • Toby1

    WHY IS HE ALLOWED TO HIDE HIS FACE????

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Deport him immediately, he can live in a turkish refugee camp, it would be more in tune with his lack of mind set. Consider lobotomizing him first, then deport.

  • Michael Garfinkel

    How long do you think Stalin, or even Putin would put up with this sh*t?

    Five minutes? Ten?

    Soon, perhaps this year, 2016, there will be another mass casualty attack in London, Paris, or Berlin.

    The Europeans will then be faced with a moment of truth -will they choose survival, or will they aquiesce in the destruction of their homelands?

    I am not very hopeful about their choice.

    Lucky they’ve got that de-radicalisation thing going, yes sir, yes siree, well once they have taught him all them interfaith thingies, well, we won’t have to worry no more. he’ll be volunteering to cook sausages for the local church.

    Pamela the hospitalization for religious beliefs reminds me of the Soviet Union CCCP 1950s-1980s where people routinely were committed to psychiatric wards for their political beliefs. One no one in their right mind could their was a system of government better than Communism and 2 it served as a deterrent The West is putting people on Psych Ward for Peoples religious beliefs. Watch out Saudi Arabia and Iran Pakistan and Hamas/Gaza too. The US of Obama also wants to eliminate HiIPPA for people seeing a Psychologist or Psychiatrist so you can more easily be identified. This is many people 1:4 at one time. So Obama must embrace that old Communist method if the there is no law or evidence to lock them up, and you aren’t going to accept that there are beliefs out there foreign to your own or that you want to expose; declare the person crazy and put him/her away like the Soviets used to do

    And the mainstream media tells too little about these things (in Finland). Does anybody know where to find more pictures like this of the Cologne incident?

    Hi girls, is it true that since Christians believe Jesus is God and God is Jesus,Therefore:

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing Moses to burn cities and murder men, children, babies, women, but not young women who have never had sex. Moses said: You may keep them for yourselves (Numbers 31 – 1-18)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing Saul to murder children, babies, young, old, girls, women, and donkeys (1 Samuel 15:3)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing to murder brother, son, daughter,wife, or friend who worship another god (Deuteronomy 13:6)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing to burn and murder the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God (Deuteronomy 13:13-19)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing to murder every man in the town and keep all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. (Deuteronomy 20:10-14)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of instructing to murder women & children “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all – old and young, girls and women and little children” (Ezekiel 9:5-7)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus assisting in capturing all cities and utterly destroy the men, women and children of every city – with no survivors (Deuteronomy 2:34)

    ~ Christians accuse Jesus of killing all of people, animals, plants, and other living being on planet earth via the great flood (Genesis 7:23)

      And girls, the New Testament verses are quite shocking:

      I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled
      For Jesus said in the N.T”

      Now, as for those enemies of mine who did not want me to be their king, bring them here and kill them in my presence! (PS: The Parable of Ten Minas whereas Jesus is the King, and those who should be killed are the Jews)

      Do you think I came to bring PEACE on earth? NO, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three.

      “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.

      In the same way, therefore, every one of you who does not say good-bye to all his possessions cannot be My disciple.

      Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a SWORD.

      If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

      And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell

      For I came to set at variance ‘A man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,

      He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”

      And he [Jesus] said unto them … Ye reject the commandment of God … For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”

      Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

      And throw that worthless slave into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

        You wanna “war verses”? Well I’ll give you “war verses”!

        # Allah does not forbid you respecting those who have not made war against you on account of (your) religion, and have not driven you forth from your homes, that you show them KINDNESS and deal with them JUSTLY; surely Allah loves the doers of justice

        # Allah only forbids you, with regard to those WHO FIGHT YOU for (your) Faith, AND DRIVE YOU OUT of your homes, and support (others) in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such as turn to them (in these circumstances), that do wrong.

        # Fight in the way of Allah those WHO FIGHT YOU but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.

        # If they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them (Quran)

        # But if the enemies incline towards peace, do you also incline towards peace. And trust in God! For He is the one who hears and knows all things. (Quran)

        # And if one of the idolaters seek protection from you (O Muhammad), grant him protection till he hears the word of Allah, then make him attain his place of safety; this is because they are a people who do not know. (Quran)

        # And they (the righteous) give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the CAPTIVES [Saying], “We feed you only for the countenance of Allah . We do not wish from you reward or thanks. (Quran)

        # Do not say to one who offers you peace, “You are not a believer,” seeking the spoils of this world. For GOD possesses infinite spoils. Remember that you used to be like them, and GOD blessed you. (Quran)

        === And No compulsion in religion ====

        # NOW [as for thee, O Muhammad,] We have not sent thee otherwise than to mankind at large, to be a herald of glad tidings and a warner; but most people do not understand (Meccan Verses)

        # Proclaim: “This is the truth from your Lord,” then whoever wills let him believe, and whoever wills let him disbelieve (Meccan Verses)

        # To You Your Religion and To Me Mine (Meccan Verses)

        # Those WHO BELIEVE THEN DISBELIEVE, AGAIN BELIEVE AND AGAIN DISBELIEVE, then increase in disbelief, Allah will never forgive them nor guide them in the (right) way. (Medina Verses)

        # There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. (Medina Verses)

        # But if they turn away, [O Muhammad], say, “Sufficient for me is Allah ; there is no deity except Him. On Him I have relied, and He is the Lord of the Great Throne. (Medina Verses)

        PS: I’m not posting it for you. I post this for my self and for those who might still have brain.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          Of course muslims have brains, any one can see that, right after they get beheaded for any real or imagined offence against islam.

      • Leela Kim

        And oh, thanks for giving me motives to do my homework. People like you are so brainwashed and annoying it’s almost cute.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          That is without a doubt the stupidest thing you have said so far. You, in addition to being brain washed submit to islam because it will kill you if you don’t.

          Hadith and Sira

          The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse 4:80 of the Quran: “Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah.”

          Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ ”

          Bukhari (83:37) – “Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate.”

          Bukhari (84:57) – [In the words of] “Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

          Bukhari (89:271) – A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to “the verdict of Allah and his apostle.”

          Bukhari (84:58) – “There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu’adh asked, ‘Who is this (man)?’ Abu Muisa said, ‘He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.’ Then Abu Muisa requested Mu’adh to sit down but Mu’adh said, ‘I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.’ Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, ‘Then we discussed the night prayers'”

          Bukhari (84:64-65) – “Allah’s Apostle: ‘During the last days there will appear some young foolish people who will say the best words but their faith will not go beyond their throats (i.e. they will have no faith) and will go out from (leave) their religion as an arrow goes out of the game. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.'”

          Abu Dawud (4346) – “Was not there a wise man among you who would stand up to him when he saw that I had withheld my hand from accepting his allegiance, and kill him?” Muhammad is chastising his companions for allowing an apostate to “repent” under duress. (The person in question was Muhammad’s former scribe, who left him after doubting the authenticity of divine “revelations” – upon finding out that grammatical changes could be made. He was brought back to Muhammad after having been captured in Medina).

          al-Muwatta of Imam Malik (36.18.15) – “The Messenger of Allah said, “If someone changes his religion – then strike off his head.”

          Reliance of the Traveller (Islamic Law) o8.1 – “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.” (o8.4 affirms that there is no penalty for killing an apostate).

      Curious about something. Are you still able to find a lot of people who will buy the idea that muslims are harmless practitioners of a worthy faith? Have you tried to sell that crap lately? Were you laughed at until you slunk away?

    • Mahou Shoujo

      In Islam, a Muslim woman can only have sex after her “nikah” – a proper marriage contract – with one Muslim man; sex is permitted to her only with her husband.[121][135][257] The woman’s husband, may however, marry and have sex with more than one Muslim woman, as well as have sex with non-Muslim slave girls who are unmarried or married to non-Muslim men.[122][135][258] However, this again is a very uncommon practice among Muslim men around the world especially after the abolishment of slavery in Islam.[citation needed] According to Quran and Sahih Muslim, two primary sources of Sharia, Islam permits only vaginal sex.[259]

      (…) “If he likes he may (have intercourse) being on the back or in front of her, but it should be through one opening (vagina).”

      — Sahih Muslim, 8:3365
