    Germany axe attack: Assault on train in Wuerzburg

    A teenage Afghan refugee armed with an axe and knife injured four people on a train in southern Germany before being shot dead by police, officials say.

    Three people were seriously hurt and one suffered minor injuries in the attack in Wurzburg, police said.

    Initial reports said up to 20 people had been injured but it was later revealed that at least 14 had been treated for shock.

    The motive for the attack is not yet clear.

    Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said the attacker was a 17-year-old Afghan refugee who had been living in the nearby town of Ochsenfurt.

    He told public broadcaster ARD that the teenager appeared to have travelled to Germany as an unaccompanied minor.

    Mr Herrmann said authorities were looking into reports that the attacker had yelled out "an exclamation". Some witnesses quoted by German media said they had heard him shout "Allahu akbar" ("God Is Great") during the attack.

    Nolan deserves our respect and thanks for his painstaking and untiring efforts to make sure that no violent crime by any one of the 1.6 billion people around the world who belong to the Muslim faith will go unnoticed, particularly if the perpetrator happens to be a refugee.

    For some reason, Nolan does not seem to be quite as thorough and assiduous in sharing with us any of the numerous news reports describing hate crimes committed against Muslim refugees by German citizens.

    But I am not saying this to be critical of Nolan. There are so many of these latter reports in the news that a busy researcher like Nolan no doubt has not yet had the time to go through all of them.

    Maybe you will finally get around to this in one of your forthcoming posts, Nolan? I know how hard you must be working on this other side of the story.

    Of course the fact that there are also hate crimes against Muslim refugees, and plenty of them, according to the news reports which I will shortly cite, is not an excuse for anyone, regardless of religious belief or immigration status, to commit an act of violence against anyone anywhere in the world other than in self-defense, and I am not trying to justify the attack which Nolan has evidently lost little time in sharing with us.

    The latest news reports indicate that ISIS is now claiming responsibility for the latest attack on a train in Germany by an Afghan refugee. While, evidently, no one yet knows if this attack was actually planned by ISIS or by a deranged loner who might have been inspired by the inhuman monsters who call themselves the Islamic State, as in Orlando, it is clear that there is one sure way not to stop ISIS from carrying out or influencing further attacks.

    This is to blame 1.6 billion Muslims around the world who have nothing to do with this group and its ideology of violence and terror every time ISIS, or someone claiming to be influenced by ISIS, carries out one of its atrocities.

    America, and the world, needs to fight terror and terrorists, not all of the world's Muslims or all of the Middle Eastern refugees.

    First, no one is paying me to keep them abreast of immigration-related events in the news. I send out what I happen across that I think my friends, which includes Roger, might find interesting without regard to whether they further any political agenda. If Roger's point is that he finds the randomness and lack of a political agenda of my distributions objectionable, I can stop sending things to him. I apply the same criterion when I choose news articles to post on ILW.com.

    Second, the day I sent Roger a copy of the article I put on ILW.com, I also sent him the following article on a hate crime against refugees in Germany:

    Report: Five times more attacks on refugee homes in Germany in 2015
    German press and local governments have reported that violent acts targeting asylum-seeker housing increased by five times last year.http://m.dw.com/en/report-five-times-more-attacks-on-refugee-homes-in-germany-in-2015/a-19011109

    Let?s face it: The ESTABLISHMENT, corrupt authorities in control of our freedom, our money and much more, deaf to people?s claims (in collaboration with the Press) finally make the system collapse, and ISIL, violent guys and desperate citizens start using guns… In my case, I can witness how our local Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, kept Mar?a?s money with fraud, discriminating her for just being Colombian. I am only an old peaceful professor, but many times I cannot blame aggressive people who are fed up with these immoral diplomats and Governments. Immigration should not be just business, letting terrorists with money and criminals enter our territory. In God we trust? Come on…

    I appreciate Nolan's explanation. For some reason, I overlooked or didn't receive the articles about the attacks against refugees that he sent me. In fact, I had also sent one of those articles to him.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding, Nolan! Anyway, I know we are both on the same page in condemning all violent attacks, by refugees or on refugees.

    Yes, I am just as offended by violence on a refugee as I am by refugees perpetrating violence. One of my unsuccessful campaigns as an immigration counsel on the House immigration subcommittee was to do away with the practice of holding people in refugee camps until an FBI name check could be completed. The camps at that time were dangerous, particularly to women and children; and no refugee application had ever been denied on the basis of an FBI name check. The reason was obvious to everyone but the head of the FBI name check program. No criminal or terrorist known to the FBI was going to give his right name for the name check.

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) seems to have caused quite an uproar at the Republican National Convention on the night of July 20 by asking people to vote their "conscience" rather than blindly voting for Donald Trump.

    According to the news reports I have seen, Cruz' wife Heidi had to be escorted out of the auditorium by security for her own safety.

    The next question is whether Trump and his supporters, who are already pledged to have Hillary Clinton locked up if Trump wins the election, will also try to lock up Cruz if Trump becomes president.

    Why not? If Hillary gets locked up for losing the election, why shouldn't Cruz, who was Trump's strongest opponent, get locked up for losing the primary?

    After all, isn't that the way they do things in Russia and some of the other authoritarian countries whose leaders trump has had kind words for, including North Korea?

    (Sorry, I forgot - they don't do elections in North Korea.)

    This is totally insane, i don't know why those people kill simply so brutally for no reason. It is good that he shot by the police officials. I have read this story from australianwritings.com blogs and so got to know about them. I feel very sad for that.
