    Cottbus

    Cottbus is a university city, the second-largest city in the state of Brandenburg, around 125 km southeast of Berlin. After the attack on the tram, the perpetrator then ran through the carriage as if nothing had happened and got off at the next stop. As he got out, he let out a loud, audible laugh, according to the driver and witnesses. The police searched the Pakistani’s home and seized numerous pieces of evidence.

    The investigation into the motive of the act is ongoing. According to BZ and Bild Zeitung, the suspect has already confessed to an officer. According to this, Abdulsalam R wanted to injure or kill someone in order to “secure another stay in Germany”. His residence permit recently expired.

    A spokesman for the Cottbus public prosecutor said on Friday when questioned by Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit, that the alleged perpetrator had also commented on a possible motive during his interrogation. However, this differs “considerably” from the motif mentioned in the media. And strangely, this real motive was also not noted in the police files.

    Abdulsalam R is strongly suspected of having stabbed a 19-year-old apprentice electrician in the back with a kitchen knife on Wednesday morning shortly after half past five. The victim had to undergo emergency surgery and he is still in a critical condition.

    According to the reports, victims and perpetrators did not know each other. According to the public prosecutor, Abdulsalam R was already known to the police for several offenses.

      For the non-European illegal migrants invading Europe, the main objective is enter Europe and live off the taxpayers, so that they may colonize and eventually take over through further illegal mass migration and, longer term, their higher birthrate. In the meantime, the priority is for them to stay in Europe once they have arrived here. The victim of this Pakistani criminal’s attack is probably viewed by the perpetrator as mere collateral damage to further this goal.

    According to a study, the absence of dark-skinned goalkeepers in the Bundesliga is due to racial discrimination not talent. The reason why individual clubs do not employ black goalkeepers, could be a coincidence, explained integration researcher Tina Nobis from Humboldt University in Berlin.
