Why was the investigation discontinued? Are there just too many ISIS supporters among the refugees for European authorities to keep track of them all? Or do they just not care?

“Man in failed attack on Paris police lived in German shelter for asylum seekers,” by Anthony Faiola and Stephanie Kirchner, Washington Post, January 10, 2016:

BERLIN — The Islamist extremist who staged a failed attack on a Paris police station last week had been living in a shelter for asylum seekers in western Germany, police said, deepening fears that militants may be infiltrating Europe disguised as migrants.

The revelation that the assailant had been trying to pass himself off as an asylum seeker is likely to spur further debate about the vetting and processing of hundreds of thousands of migrants from the war-torn Middle East seeking sanctuary in Europe. The man had assumed several aliases and at one point claimed to be from Syria, according to police in Germany.

French authorities fatally shot him on Thursday, the first anniversary of terrorist attacks on a satirical publication in Paris and other targets, as he approached the police station brandishing a butcher knife and wearing a fake explosives vest.

Several assailants in the Nov. ­13 attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people, also are thought to have used the same routes being traveled by a record number of asylum seekers and economic migrants. They include at least two attackers who entered Europe posing as Syrian asylum seekers on the Greek island of Leros.

Acting on a tip from French authorities, German police searched an asylum center Saturday in Recklinghausen, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, where the assailant in last week’s attempted attack is thought to have lived. The man, according to the news outlet Die Welt, had registered in Germany under four aliases but had claimed legal asylum under the name of Walid Salihi.

Officials in North-Rhine Westphalia’s office of criminal investigations said Sunday that the assailant had probably carried out the deed alone. They said there is no evidence that any accomplices were involved or that anyone affiliated with the man is engaged in planning attacks.

Police released a photograph of the attacker and asked members of the public to share any information they have. Authorities said that between May 2014 and November 2015, the man had been charged with arms and drug violations, theft, and slander of a sexual nature. Criminal proceedings had been launched against him for allegedly drawing flags of the Islamic State militant group — which asserted responsibility for the Paris attacks in November — and displaying them in the refu­gee shelter. But the proceedings were discontinued.

    I surmise that an investigation is discontinued once you know the answer you seek. Or when the answer is one you don’t want others to know.

  • Sifter

    Pam, any news on today’s Marseille machete assault against a Jew leaving Shul?

  • freebird

    Investigation in Europe ? What a joke.
    More then 20.000 “raprefugees” were crossing our borders without registration or checking.
    The citicans catch 3 thieves from Algeria and the police let them go. Thats not a joke.

  • Ari Chen

    Attacks against non-Muslims are gonna keep coming … and since police and government aren’t going to help… citizens have to start forming neighborhood watch and vigilante force. Maybe even hire professionals.
    Burn the shelter down to the ground with all the rats inside.

    How you liking that multiculturalism now?–This is what happens when you open your borders to Islamic Terrorists, France.

    Nothing gives these people the right to attack various countries’ borders no matter their circumstance. Too bad they did not show such aggression in their own countries to root out evil and/or make good places to live.

    It’s only a matter of time before Obama opens our doors to them. Obama would never want to betray his beloved Muslim brothers. Just look at how he sat on his hands while ISIS took over the middle east and Iran built up their nuclear program. He has destroyed our foreign policy. He has ruined our country.

    Stateside, Obama has crippled our economy. Everybody I know is either out of work or under-employed. And our expenses keep rising. My health insurance is now up to $400/month. Before the government touched it, it was $250/month! My auto insurance, which the government has yet to ruin, is thankfully only $24/month (from InsurancePanda). Please, Obama! Don’t try to socialize ANYTHING ELSE!

    Trump / Cruz 2016 unless you want this in the US. Probably our last chance to save America.

      Just wondering how good the tourist industry is lately in germany??

  • bentux

    Yesterday a 24-year old woman was sexually assaulted in a bus by 30 migrants. Only one German newspaper has published an article about it so far. The bus driver didn’t stop at the bus station where she wanted to get off, so she had to wait until the next bus stop, and until then had to condone the groping of 30 ugly Muslims. The bus driver didn’t do anything. The perpetrators are described as southerners and not as migrants or refugees. Obviously, they are trying to cover it up again.

      This is too sick!!! Reminds me of India.. and how women also get molested and raped and even murdered. But that is about sex.

      With these Pisslamists…. they are just pure evil. When caught, their right hands need to be chopped off… that will teach them and send the “right” signal…

      • bentux

        I would cut off their testicles and dicks to make sure that they won’t do it again.

        • Ari Chen

          Yeah… no problem… and just to be 100% sure, we chop off their heads so they will never ever do it again!

        • honeybee

          In Germany you are un-armed

          • joe1429

            yes… sitting ducks

          • honeybee

            In the early days of the USA, German immigrants to Penn. were much involved the fabrication of firearms. Perhaps modern day German should revive their skills.

        • joe1429

          That should be a pre requisite for the rapeugees

          • Ari Chen

            Great idea!!! But maim them as well.. so everyone can see that: This is a refugee, possible rapist / terrorist.. Ladies beware.. but thankfully, he’s limping, with only one hand, and one eye!!! hehehehe

    And another rape in Munich: two sisters, 14 and 17, were sexually harassed by three 15-year old asylum seekers. One from Syria and the other two from Afghanistan. All three were arrested by the police. They were already released.

      Nice one the SPD is against more strong measurements of asylum seekers.

  • rambler

    I believe that all this violence is a symptom of broken gov. Those european govs haven’t been functioning well and the low crime rate allowed for the governmental incompetence not to show. Now all the cracks in the system are exposed. Those govs can’t handle what is going on. Those invaders got in because those govs were powerless to stop them and used the excuse that they were being welcomed. Nobody in their right mind invites a massive hoard of people into a country when there are hard economic times, no jobs, no accommodations and no ability to vet those people as to their value to the country. All these invaders know how to do is to spread islam by force through the disregard of the local law and their lack of respect for non-believers. A long track record of governmental incompetence and stupidity has placed the lives of good people at risk. People those govs should have protected.

    It is too bad europe’s citizens have to stew in the filthy juice of islam that their elected leaders have them simmering in. Elections have consequences, remember this next time you vote, you will get what you vote for. If this is what you want, then quit complaining and live with it, if not, no one but your can change it.

    WHY are the investigations discontinued? Who is getting paid off?

  • iprazhm

    Utterly unbelievable. If these savages hold an ISIS flag then they are telling you they’re more than willing to kill someone. They can’t wait for the opportunity. Liberal PC tyrants are the more dangerous ones as they are pulling the strings of the muslim marionnettes, all the while pretending they don’t have a clue or that we are all crazy and should just hold still so the disadvantage, yet wonderfully more deserving than us, muslims can saw off our heads.

    Don’t worry, there will be more. They can investigate those. Stupid European politicians need to be run out of the country.

    This may be characterized as Workplace Violence, because it happened while the cops were working!
