This story is very unusual for the German MSM (or any Western MSM, really): It mentions “jihad”, plus the fact that the killer committed his acts for religious reasons.

Man Pleads Guilty
Knife-Stabber of Hamburg-Barmbek Confesses
January 12, 2018
At the opening of the trial for a knife attack in Hamburg-Barmbek, the accused Palestinian confesses. The deed was religiously motivated: He wanted to kill as many German Christians as possible.
About five months after the knife attack in a supermarket in Hamburg that left one dead and six wounded, the accused Palestinian confessed to the bloody deed.
The attorney for the rejected asylum seeker read out a confession at the opening of the trial at the Senate for the Protection of the State in the Hamburg Higher Regional Court. “He emphatically pleads guilty to all charges,” he explained. “The deeds had, in his view, a religious background”.
Murder as many German Christians as possible
According to the Federal Attorney, the perpetrator acted out of an Islamist mindset. He wanted to kill as many German citizens of Christian faith as possible. The representative of the Federal Attorney said, reading out the indictment: “He made this decision as a contribution to worldwide Jihad.”

The prosecution deem him fully criminally liable and accuse Ahmad A. of murder, attempted murder, and grievous battery in six instances.
His attorney said that his client was under high pressure when he committed the deeds. Ahmad A. further declared that he was not going to answer questions on the details of the deeds.
Instead, he answered questions about his life story. He started studying dental medicine, but quit. His mother was a teacher. He came to Germany to work and to make a living. Also, the Western lifestyle was a reason, in the beginning. But then he didn’t find it suitable. “I had the impression that I wasn’t welcome,” he said, according to an interpreter who was translating from the Arabic.
He refused to answer questions regarding the consumption of alcohol or drugs, as well as questions about his turning towards religion and about ISIS. He also refused to comment on his statements in his first interrogations. “In the first three days, I was wounded, and unable to concentrate.”
The rejected asylum seeker stabbed a 50-year-old to death in an Edeka supermarket, and then wounded six more people. A small, self-made ISIS flag was found in his refugee accommodation. But the terror militia did not claim responsibility for the knife attack.
This following photo of the “person who lost his life” was not part of the above article. Matthias P., 50 years old, was shopping for groceries in the Edeka store when Ahmad Alhaw randomly attacked him without prior warning:
