An undercover agent with the German police charged with the surveillance of Islamists is being held in connection with the violent death of three Georgians, prosecutors said Thursday.
Prosecutors confirmed the arrest of a second man but would not comment on a press report that identified him as an Islamist extremist.
The announcement of the arrests followed the discovery of the bodies of the Georgian men in the city of Mannheim in the south-western state of Baden-Wuerttemberg on Wednesday. They had apparently been murdered.
According to a report in the daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung, blood from one of the men was found in a white Ford Escort car found in a parking garage at Frankfurt airport that was owned by police in the neighbouring state of Rhineland-Palatinate and used by the undercover agent.
The Georgian victims, aged 28, 39 and 48, are reported to have come to Germany with a large sum in cash with the aim of buying second-hand cars. There was no suggestion of any illegality in their plans.
The men were last seen in Ludwigshafen in Rhineland-Palatinate on January 30, when they got into a white car, thought to be that of the undercover agent, who was himself linked to the motor trade, according to the press report.
The Sueddeutsche Zeitung report said that according to one theory, the men were murdered by Islamist extremists who took exception to their Georgian origin, as Georgia did not assist Islamist rebels in Chechnya.
Another theory is that the men were murdered for their money, possibly with the intention of using the funds for Islamist purposes.
... reporting of this suspected terrorist hate crime has been strangely muted in the German media with only a few newspapers giving the briefest of coverage to it and no word of condemnation from any of Germany’s notoriously Muslim appeasing politicians.
This is in stark contrast to the recent deaths also in Ludwigshafen of 9 Turkish nationals in a house fire. The latter incident which was initially blamed on arson by “neo-Nazis” received weeks of headline coverage across all media outlets with leading German politicians falling over themselves to condemn the incident and appease the Turkish community.
It has now been confirmed by the German authorities that there is  no evidence of arson for the Ludwigshafen fire and that a technical defect is the most likely cause.
However, in a development which further highlighted the extent of Europe’s ongoing capitulation to the Islamist threat, the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was allowed to visit the site of the fire - by this time adorned in Turkish flags- and publicly demand that the German authorities do more to uncover the cause of the fire and protect the Turkish community not just in Ludwigshafen but in Germany as a whole.
The reaction of German government officials was merely to lamely plead with an increasingly aggressive Turkish community for calm and to promise that everything would be done to protect their interests.
Erdogan’s contempt for German sovereignty and European values intensified several days later. At an indoor rally in Cologne in front of 16,000 cheering [Turkish] flag waving Turks from Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, he urged them never to abandon their Turkish heritage and to do all they could to resist assimilation into the West.
“Assimilation is a crime against humanity,” Erdogan told the crowd. “I can well understand that you are against assimilation…. your Turkish language should not be neglected.”
Erdogan, head of the so called ‘moderate’ Islamist AKP party, also urged ethnic Turks in Europe to be more confident in standing up for their interests, and to win election as mayors and members of European national parliaments.
The lily livered, appeasing reaction of the German media and politicians to this humilating affront to German sovereignty says so much about the sad state to which Europe has declined. The fact that these same politicians and newspapers are doing all they can to prepare the way for Turkey’s eventual admission into the European Union brings into even sharper relief the death wish with which the West is saddled.
In a society saddled with such a death wish, the truth is an uncomfortable enemy that has to be repressed or distorted. Accordingly, not one German politician or newspaper has raised the possibility that the false and inflammatory nature of the coverage of the Ludwigshafen fire, as well as the Turkish prime-minister’s provocative accusations and demands, may have intensified the climate of intolerance in the Muslim community in Germany which in turn directly contributed to the hate murders of the 3 Georgian Christians by Islamists in the same town of Ludwigshafen just a few weeks later. ...
