The machete-wielding jihadi who went on a stabbing spree in Hamburg yesterday was known to security forces. But he was not detained, just left by Merkel to go about his loathsome trade in death. Here again, another murderous jihadi known to authorities, like so very many, and nothing is done.
“As far as we know … there were no grounds to assess him as an immediate danger. He was a suspected Islamist and was recorded as such in the appropriate systems, not as a jihadist but as an Islamist.”
WTH is the difference?
