Merkel: Islamist terror is 'greatest threat'

#3
Pfennig mate, pfennig.

But indeed, I will not be holidaying in Germany next summer. Atmosphere is not pleasant this summer avd it's only going to get worse.
i suppose it's the Eurocent really.

but likewise buddy, i am hearing very bad things from friends still based or living over there so it won't be on my list.

but at least Merkel has finally had her Eureka moment, sadly it is too late with many people dead and injured in the name of one particular religion, and the flood gates she opened into Europe may never be able to empty the sewage that came in.

It's too late, the problems got away from them. You can't invite in that many shouty blokes so fast with no plan and looked surprised when it all goes tits. The little village in the Black Forest I've stayed at for over a decade has gone from crime free, everyone left there doors open and people said hello, to a locked down suspicious of about outsiders state of near siege after two rape-murders in a matter of months at the hands of Fluchtunge.
The old alles Im ordnung 'Toytown' Germany is now history.

I am truly surprised... yet another Islam bashishing thread from @RoyalGreenJacket.

Thinking of MasterMind, how's your general knowledge?
Regardless of your opinion of @RoyalGreenJacket (and his alleged Muzzy bashing), the article does finally show Tante Merkel admitting that they/we/us have a problem with Islamic-orientated terrorism.

I love Germany, we lived there when I was a nipper for years and I served there - great people, great outlook. but as @meerkatz said, I will not be holidaying there in the near future.

I don't have a problem with his assertion that pretty much all terrorists at the moment are universally islamists, and they, quite rightly, deserve to be hunted down and exterminated (my words).... the bit that sticks in my craw are his almost rabid thought processes that all muslims are terrorists.

Seriously?

Where was that?

Not trying to be an arrse, genuinely interested as I've been a few times recently with no issues.

Why?

Is it just me who thinks the chances of being killed by an Islamic terrorist on the continent as a tourist are still tiny.

911 and all the anthrax scares that followed never stopped me going across the pond.

You'd have to be mad to let a few psychopaths attacking sporadically ruin your holiday plans in mainland Europe.

Especially given the threat level at home. The only things seemingly stopping us being the next big headline seems to be the channel and our security services overtime budget.

The article is a bit of non article though. Islamic orientated terrorism is (currently) the greatest terrorism threat to every non Islamic European country..

The way that the OP leapt in action with his hundred point neon lit 'headline' and the way he mongbuttons everyone who doesn't obsessively share his views simply reinforces his 'single issue retard' image. Think Peter Dow type of loony here.

Oh, I too served in der Vaterland but strangely enough, have never harboured a desire to holiday there. Each to their own I suppose.

I'd rather the idea that my road trips around Europe didn't have to factor in dealing with Beardy blokes blowing up airports, train stations and shooting up city centres.

Do you honestly think it's likely that you'll be caught up in such an event?

Again I'm not having a dig, genuine question.

Realistically I'd not be travelling to the Middle East or North Africa at the moment but given the size of the real estate and the amount of people in Europe I'd bet you've got more chance of winning the lottery than being blown up.

that would have been an even better headline, but it might have upset a few more snowflakes.

it does show however the threat we edit: face if even the likes of Merkel is expressing a realisation of it.

Really? Most of us end up in big cities at some point over our hols, we frequent:
  1. Beaches (Nice)
  2. Big markets (Berlin)
  3. Sports grounds (Istanbul & Paris)
  4. Train stations (Brussels & Madrid)
  5. Airports (again Brussels and Istanbul).
I think your chances of being a victim of terror in Mainland Europe is higher than you'd think.....

I think Merkel is just pointing out the obvious that from a security point of view the greatest threat comes from Islamic extremists.

That's not to say that the threat is great it's just greater than the rest.

Who else do we have to worry about really?

Not even the desperate tabloid attempts to cook up a new Cold War have any credibility and even if it did it will remain just that, cold.

I think the Politics of fear runs deep in some.
