New official figures from the Federal Criminal Police Office of Germany (Bundeskriminalamt, BKA) claim that there have been 705 “attacks” on invader centers in that country this year so far—including at least 57 cases of arson.
The number of attacks is on course to exceed the “unprecedented” 1,005 such incidents last year, BKA chief Holger Münch said.
Speaking in an interview with the Tagesspiegel newspaper, Münch said that by comparison, there had only been 199 such attacks in 2014. In that year there were only six arson attacks.
Münch added that of the 705 incidents reported by the BKA, 124 involved “acts of violence.”
As the establishment’s chief spokesman on such matters, Münch then went on to blame the populist Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party for the rise in attacks.
“The AfD has made xenophobia socially acceptable in our society,” Münch said. The party provides an “ideological breeding ground and legitimate cover.”
If Münch was however honest, he would admit that the real reason for the increase in support for the AfD and the rise in attacks on the centers is in fact the wholesale invasion of Germany by millions of nonwhites—in other words, the policy of Angela Merkel and the German establishment parties.
He added that it was “frightening” to realize that “around three quarters of the identified suspects were not previously known to the police as extremists.”
“We observe therefore that a whole new range of politically motivated offenders have appeared on the scene, and that often local networks are forming to arrange attacks on refugee shelters.”
Therefore, he continued, the Attorney General and the police are pursuing a strategy “to respond at the first signs of terrorist structures,” and then to “crush them as soon as possible.”
Münch then went on to discuss what steps his government is taking to suppress dissent on social media outlets such as Facebook.
“Facebook responds to our requests [to remove material] quickly and thoroughly,” he said. “But we expect Facebook to take a more active role.”
He said that the number of investigations for “hate postings” had tripled in the last two years in Germany to nearly 3,000.
Münch admitted that the German government was having trouble closing down freedom of speech on the Russian-based Vk.com social platform, which is an alternative to Facebook.
