Every second Islamist attacker in Germany came into the country posing as a "refugee". In 13 attacks by 14 terrorists, seven of them were asylum seekers.
It was reported by Die Welt am Sonntag, citing statistics from British terrorist researcher Sam Mullins. The attack in a train near Würzburg and the attack on the Christmas market in Berlin, both of which occurred in 2016, were committed by perpetrators who had previously come to the country pretending to be “refugees”. The data also included the attacks on the ICE train routes in Bavaria and Berlin in 2018 by an Iraqi asylum seeker.
Commenting on his evaluation, Mullins said: “The link between illegal migration and terrorism should neither be overemphasized nor disputed. Not even one in a thousand asylum seekers commit attacks, but they are overrepresented in Islamist attacks in the EU.”
The deputy chairman of the AfD parliamentary group, Beatrix von Storch, blamed mass migration from Islamic countries for the attacks in Europe. “Merkel’s illegal opening of the border in 2015 played a part in this,” she emphasized. Warnings “were always ignored and defamed as racist scare tactics”.
Between 2012 and the end of 2020, Mullins recorded a total of 91 Islamist attacks across the EU. They were perpetrated by 132 perpetrators, 25 of whom were asylum seekers.
The then Federal Minister of Justice Heiko Maas (SPD) protected asylum seekers from suspicion of terrorism in November 2015. “There is no connection, not a single demonstrable connection between terrorism and refugees,” he said at the time, after the terrorist attacks in Paris. Islamists killed 137 people in the French capital within a few hours. The Arab-born assassins had traveled to Syria in preparation and returned to France disguised as “refugees”.
