Syrians most likely to commit acts of violence in Germany

Foreigners who commit acts of violence in Germany are most often of Syrian origin. Last year, 37,5 percent of all suspected violent criminals were foreigners. Of these, Syrians were most strongly represented with 12,2 percent.

    This was revealed in the response of the Federal Ministry of the Interior to a small request from AfD member of the Bundestag Stephan Brandner as reported by Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.

    In 2009, the number of suspect Syrians was 0,9 percent. The biggest jump was seen in 2015 and 2016. There, the number of suspect Syrians had increased from 3,6 to 9,8 percent.

    At twelve percent, Turks were the second most popular suspects in 2019. In 2009, their share among foreign suspects was 34,1. Afghans were the third most frequently accused of violent crime in 2019, at 7,5 percent. The jump from 2015 to 2016 is also the greatest for them, increasing from 3,0 to 6,5 percent.

    When it comes to murders, Turks, Syrians and Afghans also took the top three places among non-German suspects. However, the number of Turkish suspects has steadily decreased since 2013. The proportion of Syrians, however, has increased tenfold since 2010.

    The share of Syrian suspects regarding sex crimes was highest in the past year with 12,4 percent. This means that the number has roughly tripled since 2015. Turks were the second most frequently accused of such crimes, with Afghans in third place. Their share has more than doubled since 2015.

    The Federal Ministry of the Interior explained the numbers by maintaining that there were differences in “social structure”. According to this explanation, foreigners were “on average younger and more often male” compared to the German population. They lived more in large cities and belonged to a larger proportion of the lower income and educational classes. In addition, they are more often unemployed.

    Therefore, they concluded that an actual comparison of the crime rate of Germans and foreigners was not possible due to various factors.

    But Brandner called the reason “ridiculous and embarrassing”. In the violent crimes listed, 31,7 percent of non-German suspects came from three Muslim countries.

    “The fact that the federal government wants to gloss over the numbers with crude excuses is tantamount to a denial of reality,” he said. “Merkel and her supporters by no means brought skilled workers into the country in the wake of the asylum crisis, but many thousands of violent criminals and thugs,” the AfD politician pointed out.

      “Syrians most likely to commit acts of violence in Germany”

      That should be qualified, however. The “Syrians” in question are Sunni Muslim Arabs, who almost entirely comprise those who have moved from Syria into Europe during the country’s civil war. They are the population group that supported the jihadists who attempted to overthrow the Assad government, and who lost the war. Starting in 2015 hundreds of thousands of them moved into Europe via Turkey. The president of the latter, Erdogan, has weaponized Syrians and others as a means to pressure the EU and European countries to provide favorable economic terms to Turkey.

      For the past half-decade, Syrian Sunni Muslim Arabs have contributed to the decline in public security and safety throughout western Europe. Now that the civil war is over, they refuse to accept that their side lost, and won’t return to Syria. Many of them are deserters and draft evaders, or criminals fleeing prosecution. Many of the latter include hard-core ISIS, al-Qaeda, and other jihadist fugitives from the Syrian and Iraqi authorities. They are a true danger to the European public, and should be deported whenever and wherever possible.
