German court allows jihadist criminal of 14 years to walk free
An Islamic criminal, who has been in Germany for 14 years, remains at liberty despite a breach of his residence obligations, according to a Düsseldorf District Court.

Two weeks earlier, the court had decided that the Chechen suspect should remain at large. The background to the proceedings was a weapon which was found in the apartment of the suspect in Düsseldorf. Der Spiegel reported that the Chechen, who is known among other things as Rashid K, was questioned by authorities in early May. He is on the run from the police.
One might think that after the notorious terrorist Anis Amri’s death spree at a Berlin Christmas market in 2016, the security services and the judiciary would be more attentive in dealing with jihadists. But in the case of Raschid K, from Mönchengladbach in North Rhine-Westphalia, he is not only a member of the radical Islamist scene, but also involved in organised crime.
For the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) this is not a rare phenomenon among Chechen criminals.
A photo has even emerged showing Rashid K with an assault rifle. The security services expressed alarm since the police analysis system for danger (radar-it) classifies Chechens at the highest security risk level for committing a terrorist attack.
After covert investigations, German security services searched the premises of the alleged 31-year-old Islamist and found a gun with ammunition as well as a silencer. The investigating judge then issued an arrest warrant – on the condition that the suspect remains unpunished until the end of the proceedings.
The supervision of the suspect has resulted in zero action, however, even as the search of his apartment came up with a loaded semi-automatic weapon on a shelf next to a box of ammunition and a silencer, but despite that, he was not taken into custody.
During the interrogation, Raschid K stated that he had acquired the weapon for his own protection on the black market. The muffler just happened to be there too, he said.
The competent investigating judge of the District Court in Düsseldorf issued an arrest warrant, but if the perpetrator remains unpunished until the end of his trial, he must not be remanded in custody, the judge added. Under such conditions Raschid naturally “walks free”.
The Chechen certainly did not take the “strict exhortation of the judge” to stay unpunished very seriously, because only two weeks later he was caught in an attempted house burglary in Neuss.
But this time again, state protection investigators were disappointed when they turned to the Düsseldorf District Court once more and demanded the execution of the arrest warrant.
The suspect’s latest burglary attempt was only assessed as damage to property, since the affected house was a multi-family house.
The charge of property damage has not broken “the conditions, namely a gross violation of the requirement for the detention order”, said a spokesman for the court.
The District Court Dusseldorf is still refusing to recognize a clear attempted break-in. It considers the obvious burglary attempt as the “manipulation of the front door”.
Since it was the front door of an apartment building, it was also unclear to the court in which of the apartments the perpetrators might have wanted to invade, and property damage alone is not enough to activate the arrest warrant, the court maintained.
Thus, no gross infringement of a condition of the order to avoid liability was found. The declaration of invalidity of the arrest warrant was rejected, according to the Spiegel.
Without papers, there is no deportation. Therefore, Rachid K’s stay in Germany has been 14 years. In two weeks, he will receive a renewed extension, his thirty-first.
In addition to these latest transgressions, the suspect is already known to police because of serious assault and drug offenses.
A deportation order against Raschid K – who may have a completely different name – is not possible as his alleged country of origin does not know a man with his personal details. He was known as Islam H in Brandenburg a while ago.
The Chechen migrated to Germany in 2004 as an asylum seeker. His asylum application was rejected a year later. His homeland Chechnya, however, did not accept the return of the suspect because the necessary papers were missing.
The number of Salafists in Germany has reached a new all-time high, the Interior Ministry said, particularly in Germany’s smallest states Berlin and Hamburg. The increase is twofold since 2013, reaching 11 000 last year, according to German newspaper Tagesspiegel.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
