The Islamic terror rampage unleashed by a suspected foreign refugee that claimed 12 lives a Christmas market in Berlin, Germany was entirely preventable.
But in an increasingly politically correct world, saying that unvetted, unchecked migration is a mistake takes courage — and that is often lacking in Germany.
The P.C. culture that has invaded the western world has become so insane, in fact, it may have contributed to this blood-crazed Islamic extremists escape after the attack.
That’s right. The foreigner suspected to be behind the ISIS-inspired slaughter of innocent shoppers at a Christmas market in Berlin is on the loose.
German police won’t even release a full picture of the suspect or name him publicly — because they’re afraid of violating the suspected terrorist’s privacy.
Investigators have lost the man whose documents were found in the truck used as a missile to kill 12 people and injuring 48 others, German media reported.
Soon after, police arrested a Pakistani man found about a half-a-mile from the market who matched witness descriptions of the truck’s driver — but released him the next day, saying they did not have enough evidence to keep him in custody.
“It is not the first example of full names being withheld during criminal cases in the country,” The Daily Mail is reporting. “Last month, only first names were released as two Syrian men, Kamel T.H.J. and Azad R., were charged with membership in a terrorist organisation on allegations they fought with a militant Islamist groups in their homeland.”
Police in Berlin said they had received 508 tips on the attack as of Tuesday night, but there was no immediate word from prosecutors on whether they had any concrete leads. They also did not say if they were looking for more than one suspect.
The claim of responsibility carried on the ISIS group’s Amaq news agency described the man as “a soldier of the Islamic State” who “carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting citizens of the Crusader coalition.”
