The following article from the Rheinische Post describes an assault against the mayor of a small municipality in northern Germany. The victim had made helping the migrants his cause, and not all his constituents were happy with his actions.
No one has been arrested for the attack, but it is assumed that neo-Nazis are the culprits. However, it’s also conceivable — although unlikely — that one of the culture-enrichers may be responsible. And if some sort of crackdown on “right-wing extremists” occurs in response to what happened, a “false flag” incident becomes a distinct possibility.

Joachim Kebschull… beaten up because he wants to help
by Philipp Jacobs
Thursday evening meeting of the building committee in Oersdorf, Schleswig-Holstein. As in every county it is also about the accommodation of refugees. Mandatory date, nothing special. Were it not for the hostility… Two sessions of the building committee of the municipality of 874 inhabitants in Hamburg just had to be canceled because of bomb threats. Mayor Joachim Kebschull gets letters with the words: “He who will not hear must feel” and “Oersdorf for the Oersdorfer”. Kebschull advocates for the few refugees in town. Apparently not everybody in Oersdorf likes that. On Thursday evening Kebschull goes to his car after the committee meeting. Strangers ambush him, beat him with a stick. Kebschull loses consciousness and is hospitalized.
Since June 2013 the 61-year-old is honorary mayor of the small northern county. Also a volunteer, he is committed to the “Oersdorfer Dörpjournal”, leads in the Kaltenkirchener Turnerschaft the Badminton Department, plays it enthusiastically himself and is training young people.
His primary occupation is as an engineering consultant for computer technology. Kebschull was first confronted with the refugee crisis in an abstract way in the news, then in a concrete one in Oersdorf, where asylum seekers are to be accommodated in an empty house. Whether the threatening letters are related to the attack on Kebschull, and whether they are from the brown milieu [Nazis] is not yet determined, but likely.
After the attack, the uncertainty in other municipalities is perceptible. Measures are required: “For threats against local politicians and their families, the Criminal Code should be supplemented by a crime of ‘politician-stalking’” urged the Federation of Municipal Authorities NRW [North Rhine-Westphalia].
