Shopping mall in Germany closed over fears of imminent terror attack

Let me guess, the suspects weren't Islamic terrorists but were nasty right wingers?

This is just days after 9 people were hurt in an axe attack in Düsseldorf by an asylum seeker and an 80 year old man was attacked by a machete in the city.

More fun in Stockholm.

For the last week PostNord has not delivered the mail to multiple addresses in Hjulsta. The reason is that it is not considered safe for postal staff to deliver mail in the area.

"It's a mess in the area and therefore we have stopped delivery to protect the safety of our staff", says Maria Ibsen, press officer at PostNord. She stated that they currently did not know how long the protective stop will continue. But dialogue was ongoing with several parties and they hoped the problems could be solved.

Björn Schenholm, property manager at Einar Mattsson, who manage the properties in Hjulsta, estimates that about 120 households affected by the stoppage. "We found out by chance that PostNord had stopped distributing the mail. We are very upset. We have not seen any police reports that would confirm the basis for the stop."

Instead of their mail being delivered to their mailboxes at home residents in Hjulsta must now pick up their mail at PostNord's office in Rinkeby between the hours of 07-10am......

Of course they are all peaceful women and children who only seek a safe place to live. All the inherent infighting between them would never travel here would it?

That´s what happens when the police is ordered not to report. Code 291...

Just as we always see, these so called 'refugees' are young single men ages 20-40 with fancy phones clamped to their ears. No women, no children.

Borussia Dortmund attack: Police investigate Islamist link - BBC News

It’s interesting that there are competing claims for responsibility. My immediate reaction is that this doesn’t follow the established pattern for islamist attacks, the most recent of which have targeted the general public in open spaces using motor vehicles. And when the islamists have organised bomb attacks, they generally favour suicide bombings. It may be that focusing on a high profile target is a new tactic, but I do wonder if this could actually be the work of a far right group trying to whip up anti-islamic sentiment?

So far we've had one bomb not go off in St Petersburg, the Stockholm bomb didn't go off and now three bombs go off on a bus and barely break a window. Be thankful that these are two bob terrorists and not more professional as the consequences could be even more dire.

Alas they will get better. Especially as merkel is still allowing hordes of trained fanatics in and insisting they are spread Europe wide.. presumably to make keeping an eye on them more fun for the euro police forces ��

According to France 24 there was another note from the anti-fascist movement (which doesn't sound very far right to me!)

No need for that, just let history take its course. Any reasonably intelligent individual realizes that things are not going to get any better, they just need to sit back and watch.

A side-effect of course is that mass surveillance is no doubt in place tracking all of us 24/7. Undoubtedly that has stopped some attacks but as the IRA once said "Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once - you will have to be lucky always." - multiply that many times over.

Two policemen have been killed and one wounded in a shooting incident in central Paris, a police source said.

A man opened fire on police on Thursday night on the Champs-Élysées and was killed by return fire, a police source told Reuters. Pierre-Henry Brandet of the French interior ministry said the attacker had driven up to the site of the attack by car. He got out of the car and used an automatic weapon to fire on a police van.

The attacker killed one police officer and seriously wounded two other officers, said Brandet. He tried to fire at others as he ran off before being shot dead by police. One of the injured officers died of his wounds soon after.

The Paris anti-terrorist police are investigating the incident......

39-year-old Karim C - who used the alias 'Abu Yousuf the Belgian' was jailed for 20 years for trying to kill officers in 2001.
Karim was born in France and lived in Chelles, a commuter town close to Paris and was jailed for the 2001 attack - but is believed to have been released early in 2016.

Only 2.65 percent of those migrants who arrived in Italy in 2016 were granted asylum as genuine refugees, according to the United Nations.

what do you think...

The EU is rather like the US for Cuban citizens - it has its own wet foot, dry foot policy but instead of restricting it to just Cubans it applies to everyone.
