Germany synagogue shooting: Gunman kills multiple people in Halle attack

 

At least two people have been killed in shootings at multiple locations in Germany, including near a synagogue in the city of Halle.

Local police have arrested one person but told people to "remain vigilant" on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators previously said the perpetrators fled in a vehicle, and a manhunt was underway.

One man has been arrested, a 27-year-old German from Sachsen-Anhalt, named Stephan B., reports about several perpetrators now assumed to be incorrect.

He was using a camera mounted on his helmet. He shot a woman near the Jewish cemetary and a man in a döner restaurant.

Police has the video he filmed, in which he made racist statements against Jews, and against  Kanaken. He livestreamed on Twitch.

70 to 80 people were in the synagogue at the time and could see him on a camera, attempting to get in by shooting at the door and throwing explosives. Luckily, he failed to get inside.

Two more people had been shot and wounded and had successful surgeries. Their lives aren't currently in danger.

In many locations, people have been organising under the Twitter hashtag #wirstehenzusammen ("we're standing together") and are assembling outside synagogues to show solidarity with the Jewish communities.  Merkel showed up to the one at the New Synagogue in Berlin.

@jeremytwo You need to grasp that you and your cronies own at least a part of this. This is what your stupidity foments. Get right with it.

Antisemitism is not a purely right wing phenomenon, and you really do not need to dig that much into history of Germany to find a terror attack which is attributed to left wing extremists collaborating with PLO.

 

Also, you cannot blame jeremytwo for creation of East German youth suffering from unemployment in early 1990s. This is how these Nazis were created in the first place.

 

Or one can blame Harz IV. If these assholes had jobs, they wouldn't have much time for conspiracy theories.

 

What is appalling  here: police qualifies this as Amok, while this is crystal clear terror attack. In Israel, if a nutty religious Jew kills an Arab, this is automatically qualified as terrorism and is investigated by state security (due to his motivation, it's political). The family also receives compensation as a victim of terror.

 

Germany should stop thinking that terror is only when Muslims kill someone.

Anyone who promotes and amplifies this noise is complicit. Jeremy is complicit. He gets to own that.

The German unemployment rate is 3.1%.

Germans don´t think that it has to do with Muslims, well most don´t, the word terror is for German politicians what the name Voldemort is for Hogwards. It must not be spoken out loud and it must not be named.

This goes back to the heady days of the RAF which automatically brings dirty NS-heavy words like "Ringfahndung"and "Zielfahndung" back into memory.

And we don´t want that again do we?

No but he is at fault because he is a strong proponent of antisemitism and racism and islamaphobia and many other ways of hating people just because of their race,religion,sex etc.

 

And what`s the betting that in a few hours or days he posts a link to a conspiracy site saying that this attack was organised by the deep state sponsored by Rothschild as a false flag to breed sympathy for Jews

This is a man who believes no kids died at Sandy Hook and that the grieving parents were actors hired to play the part.

 

He owns this and attacks like this because he believes and tries to encourage other people to believe that these things are all a "false flag" operation designed to take the spotlight off of the "Liberal Elite pedophile/child eating/Lizard King worshippers"or are commited by Muslims because that`s what Islam is or by Jews because they want to control the world and its populace. 

Those theories are read by a lot of crazy people and there will always be the odd crazy who will decided to take matters into their own hands.

 

 

What you seem to not understand is because of unemployment etc etc these sort of people are highly susceptible to the type of shit J2 espouses because it gives them someone to blame for their predicament (often the wrong person but they don`t see that) and they sometimes go to extremes to punish those people that J2 and his ilk blame for it.

Sort of like giving an arsonist a can of petrol and a match and saying those people over there put you here but whstever you do I`m not at blame for it for what you now decide to do.

Just lucky the synagogue had strong doors because the scumbag tried to blow his way through and there were 70 - 80 people inside - a fucking massacre was avoided.

Not lucky - synagogue doors in Germany (and other countries) are reinforced for exactly this reason. :(

Seems to be a horrible combination of very old hatred and modern "look at me" culture. Would he even have done this if he'd been unable to livestream it? Wonder if his need for attention led him to share his plans with kindred spirits online.

Keleth you seem to not understand that there were racially motivated attacks on foreigners in the DDR (mostly Vietnamese "socialist brothers"), but the police never qualified these attacks as racially motivated because there was no racism in a socialist state. There was no Breitbart to read this and get inspiration.

 

You and others in this thread are doing exactly the same what you accuse others do - you're looking for a scapegoat.

 

You can as well blame video games (Trump did), the same level of arguments.

 

There is a really long way between conspiracy theories and incitement to violence. Not a single post of jeremytwo qualifies as incitement.

 

Unfortunately, I'm kind of expert in this area because I am Jewish and I was born in a country where there was state sponsored Anti-Semitism. In 1991, it vanished, and Anti-Semitism reduced to basically vandalism of cemeteries and conspiracy theories. And now we even have a Jewish president. You see, it doesn't work like you write.

Even though it is higher in the East (about 7% in Saxen-Anhalt) this is the most worrying part. I don't even want to think what happens if unemployment in Germany reaches the levels of Spain, Italy or Greece.

But the lock from what I can judge in the video is a simple cylinder lock which any Eastern European can open with one piece of wire.

 

The idiot was however German with tunnel thinking, this saved people's lives...

Is this racist because it asserts all eastern europeans are criminals, or racist because it asserts germans lack basic housebreaking skills?

Depends who wrote this. As an Eastern European I can joke like this.

 

However, you can walk to any police station and get statistics about "specialization" of certain nations in crimes. Following Bavaria crime news, it's like this: Eastern Europe = theft, Germans = armed robbery. The latter reduced significantly because banks have more security and keep less cash, however bank robberies were very common in Germany before 1990. There is a nice movie called "Bank Lady" about the first and most prominent female bank robber.

 

It's not about skills, it's about way of thinking. Germans are used to break by force with the gun, so the penetrator didn't even think they could watch a Youtube video and learn how to open a cylinder lock. This is also one of the reasons the Schlusseldienst is so profitable here.

I saw The Bank Lady. That was an interesting movie to watch.

German authorities say that right-wing extremism is a growing threat to the country, and they are taking measures to identify and root out right-wing groups or individuals, who they say are dangerous and could carry out violent terror acts.

"Right-wing crimes endanger our democracy," said Holger Münch, head of the federal criminal police in Berlin on Tuesday. "The situation is serious."

On Tuesday, the police announced a new package of measures to monitor and combat right-wing speech online and to potentially outlaw hate-spreading groups. The action comes in the wake of a deadly attack in the eastern city of Halle last week, where a gunman tried unsuccessfully to break into a synagogue and then killed two passers-by. Authorities said that the 27-year-old attacker confessed that he had “far-right and anti Semitic motives” for the attack.

There has been an alarming growth in anti-Semitism in Germany and across Europe in recent years.

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights said has observed an increase in “acts of violence against Jews in certain countries," and a survey of Jews across the EU from December 2018 discovered that 85% of Jewish people saw antisemitism as a serious problem.

Jewish leaders in Germany have been warning for years that the community faces multiple threats, from both Muslims as well as the far-right. This summer, after a rise in attacks against Jews, German special commissioner on antisemitism Felix Klein said Jews should think twice about wearing their traditional kippah caps in public. His suggestion caused outrage that the onus was on Jewish community to combat the problem, and not on the government to protect them by taking action against the perpetrators...

Hey, @jeremytwo,  I see you're here. Are you still supporting the fucked up thinking of that Qanonsense that fomented this heinous action? Are you ready to take your part of the responsibility for promoting nutty conspiracy theories that create such destruction? You might as well have handed this guy his gun. You are despicable.
