biggest issue in Germany these days is of course the wave of islamist
terror attacks that took place over the last couple of days with the
ones in Paris dominating the headlines.
the aftermath of the attacks in Paris there have been numerous police
raids in France, Belgium and Germany in which a lot of Daesh
supporters including the alleged master mind of the Paris attacks,
Abdelhamid Abaaoud, have been killed or arrested.
Germany two stadiums in Hannover were evacuated on Tuesday evening
because of terror threats. A football match between Germany and the
Netherlands and a concert were cancelled, after German police had
reportedly been warned by French authorities of an imminent,
coordinated terror attack using at least five bombs in stadiums and
was reported but not confirmed that the attackers had hidden
explosives in an ambulance to smuggle the bombs into the stadium.
was another interesting but underreported incident in Munich on
Thursday evening. Focus reported that police received a tip on
suspicious guests in a Munich hotel. Focus says that the police have
confiscated fake German police uniforms and canisters of flammable
gas that were to be used in a terror attack. Four of the eight
suspects have reportedly been able to escape capture by the police.
police have denied the report by Focus immediately. They admit that
there was a police operation at the hotel, but say it was based on a
false alarm and that there was no connection to any terror operation
whatsoever. They call the Focus report a hoax.
has somewhat backtracked on their original reporting and included the
police denial in their text but state that they stand by their story
despite the police denial, in effect calling the police liars. Which
is quite unusual for a major German newspaper, especially with regard
to an issue of such importance.

is probably because they have been led to mistakenly believe that our
societies are dominated by the authority of law.
people conform to rules and standards of our society, which have been
laid down in volumes of law by our most upright fellow citizens.

likely no one in Germany knows all the laws that they can be judged
will be true even for judges, lawyers, policemen or politicians. But
those will at least know certain aspects of the law very well.
the average German has no idea about the actual wording of
regulations or laws, nor would they know where or how to look them

is a lot wrong with that, but the point I am trying to make here is:
is not the law that makes peaceful coexistence in our society
is trust among individuals which makes our lives liveable.
the source of this trust is a shared culture and shared fundamental

this trust is destroyed, people will need something to cope with

expect the state to protect them, they will hand over what little
remains of their sovereignty and civil rights willingly.

more terror to justify its existence. Which is clearly a recipe for
the terror threat is clearly a EU wide problem the EU bureaucrats
will demand more power for EU wide political, police, military and
will be blackmailed into handing over the last shreds of their
independence to the EU in exchange for supposed security benefits
that will of course never materialise.
the end we will have more terror, more surveillance, more police
state, less freedom and less hope to find a real solution.
the Western people wake up to the wicked games their elites play
there is little hope for change for the better.
