Germany - 32,000 Islamist extremists in country

Now, this is whistling past the graveyard.

22 May 2006

BERLIN - The number of Islamist extremists based in Germany increased slightly last year but the country faces far lower threat of terrorist attacks than states which took part in the Iraq war, an official report said Monday.

There were 32,100 Islamists living in Germany last year - an increase of about 300 from 2004, said the report by Germany's domestic security agency, the Verfassungsschutz.

Germany has a Muslim minority of about 3 million out of a total population of 82 million, said the report.

The biggest Islamist group is Milli Gorus, a Turkish movement with 26,500 members.

Other groups are Hamas with about 300 members, Hezbollah with 900 and the Muslim Brotherhood with 1,300.

The Verfassungsschutz has no figures for the number of al-Qaeda members based in Germany, the report said.

Nope, no problem there. Of course, maybe Germans should fear your everyday Muslim more.

Hamburg - In Hamburg, a 40-year-old man beheaded his wife (39) . Afterwards, he ran, his wife’s head in his hand, to a nearby gas station and turned himself in to police. At the time of the brutal murder, both daughters (6 and 13) were in the apartment of the married couple.

The cops are clueless and struggle for a motive.

Investigators now try to figure out the motive for this unbelievable homicide. The situation escalated without any reason, according to homicide detectives. Atilla S., who had been living in this apartment for 10 years together with his wife, has not been registered for any criminal offense.

Might this give cause for alarm?

“We were not very close to him and his family”, says a relative. “ He is very conservative and attended the mosque on a regular basis. The rest of the family has a very Western lifestyle.”

This created a gap between husband and wife.

Poor choice of words?
