German Attorney General: Terrorism reaches new record

According to the data from the Federal Prosecutor General (GBA), the 2 245 Islamist terrorist proceedings that have been initiated in the past four years reveal more about the actual security situation in Germany than do police crime statistics.

    It is suspected that police crime stats from the Federal Ministry of the Interior are being manipulated for political ends. The course of the migrant flow and its highly problematic enforcement with Islamists and terrorists can rather be understood from the figures of the Federal Public Prosecutor.

    For the first time these numbers have been revealed in the book Sicherheitsrisiko Islam [Security Risk Islam] by author Stefan Schubert, a former German police officer.

    The Federal Prosecutor General also confirmed a new record of 1 220 terrorist proceedings in Germany for 2018. The overwhelming majority of them – 884 cases – is related to Islamist terror. The figures can also be viewed in a parliamentary response from the Federal Government.

    The 855 Islamist terrorism cases for the year 2018 specified by the Federal Public Prosecutor have been raised by the authorities to 884 proceedings. In addition, the GBA confirmed six legal-terrorism-related investigations and a left-wing terrorist investigation.

    Furthermore, it is clear from the official statistics that an additional 305 terrorist proceedings with “reference to international, non-Islamic terrorism” were initiated at the Federal Public Prosecutor General’s Office in 2018 – essentially crimes of foreign terrorist organisations in Germany.

    The relatively new phenomenon of self-incrimination by asylum seekers, who claim themselves to be members or support an Islamist terrorist militia, does not play a significant role in the heightened security situation.

    The Attorney General, a political official who is directly subordinate to the Federal Ministry of Justice, speaks indeed of an increase in self-reporting. In the face of an alleged threat of prosecution in Syria and Iraq, such asylum seekers hope to achieve a subsidiary residence in Germany.

    The country’s security situation was damaged by the uncontrolled and majority Muslim male influx and this is clear in the year-on-year comparison of terrorist procedures. In 2013 there were a total of only 70 terrorist cases. Three years later, it was already 240. In 2017, it had reached 1 200 terrorist cases, and last year saw a new record of 1 220 terrorist attacks. On average, the Attorney General opened 3,3 new terrorist cases every day in 2018.

    In its answer, the Federal Government provided further information on Islamist terrorism. In analyzing the figures, the high level Islamist terrorist threat becomes clear: in 2015, 108 Islamist-related terrorist attacks were carried out. For 2016, there is almost a doubling of 201 Islam terrorist cases. One year later, the wave of migrants is reflected in the statistics with 1 052 terrorist cases.

    Since the beginning of the migrant crisis, 2 245 Islamist terrorist cases have been opened in just four years. The security risk posed by radical Islam thus represents the greatest danger for the citizens of Germany and basic order, Schubert pointed out.
