Harvest: German Authorities Warn “Key European Cities Could Be Attacked At Any Time” By Muslim Terrorists
Wherever Islam has been sown, terror has been reaped. What else can we expect when nations go out of their way — and out of their minds — to officially embrace the very ideology that inspired Hitler and the “final solution”? …
Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”

By Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute – “The offices of a German newspaper that republished satirical cartoons from Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine known for lampooning Islam, have been hit by arsonists.
No one was hurt in the attack on the Hamburger Morgenpost, which occurred in the early morning hours of January 11 and caused only minor damage.
Although police arrested two individuals in connection with the incident, their identities have not yet been released to the public. But German police said they are ‘working under the assumption’ that the attack was connected to the decision by the paper, also known as MOPO, to republish cartoons spoofing Mohammed on its front page on January 8, as an act of solidarity with the attack on the journalists of Charlie Hebdo.
Hamburg Mayor Olaf Scholz said that any attack on the press and freedom of expression is an attack on democracy. ‘A free press and freedom of expression are part of the foundation on which democracy rests,’ Scholz said. ‘A democratic society without a press-mediated conversation about the political and social issues of our time cannot be imagined.’
The attack came a day after the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel reported that Germany’s Federal Criminal Police Agency (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) has enacted a nationwide emergency plan in an effort to prevent Islamic terrorists from striking in Germany.
According to Der Spiegel, federal and state security agencies have been ordered to locate the whereabouts of up to 250 German Islamists and other ‘relevant persons’ whose identities are known to counter-terrorism authorities. The magazine also reported that the BKA had evidence ‘that key European cities could be attacked at any time.’
In an interview with the newspaper Bild am Sonntag on January 11, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere confirmed that German intelligence was monitoring ‘around 260 individuals’ who could potentially strike at any moment. He said:
“We have no concrete evidence of attacks. But, as I said, we have about 260 dangerous individuals (Gefährder). We also have around 550 people who have travelled to the battle zones in Syria and Iraq. Between 150 and 180 of these have returned to Germany, and 30 of them are battle-hardened fundamentalists. They pose a serious threat to our security. I am very concerned about well-prepared perpetrators such as those in Paris, Brussels, Australia and Canada. This is a serious situation.”
Bild questioned whether Germany has enough security personnel to track all the potential terrorists. According to the newspaper, at least 60 police officers are needed to successfully monitor just one German jihadist around the clock.
De Maiziere said he was doing all he could, but he conceded: ‘So far we have been lucky. Unfortunately, this may not always be the case.'” Read more.

When many of them are put on trial because of their ideas, I know fear. Because Jews and journalists are like the canary in the coalmine. If Europe fails to protect them, it must be feared that soon nobody will soon feel safe in Europe… Europe’s streets are very dark these days and you feel like a Jew in Berlin in the ‘20s.” Read more.
