Merkel Akhbar!

The following report by Egri Nök was published earlier today at Vlad Tepes in a slightly different form.

German Press on Attack on Merkel: When someone runs towards you, yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’, don’t be bigoted!

by Egri Nök

Berlin — on Wednesday, a loudly yelling Afghan ran towards Angela Merkel as she was leaving the Reichstag, and was wrestled down by two security guards. It was caught on camera, and aired live, more or less accidentally.

Please have a look at the two following videos and compare.

The first one aired LIVE, so the interviewer and his guest keep on talking, as they have no idea what is going on. The sound is un-edited and you can hear the yelling very clearly.

Then please watch the second clip, produced by Bild newspaper afterwards, and compare the sound of the two.

1. The clip that aired live, relevant part beginning at 7 seconds in:

2. Bild’s edited clip. Please pay attention to the sound:

Die Welt reassure us that the “disturber was merely running towards Merkel”, no harm intended, and that there is no reason for a “knee jerk reaction”, just because someone runs toward you, yelling “something in a foreign language” that “sounds similar to Allahu akbar”.

We are translating it for the humor:

Heart stopping moment in front of the Bundestag: On Wednesday, an Afghan ran towards the chancellor, yelling something — then, a bodyguard stopped him. WELT learned from police insiders what they know about the man and how they assess the incident.

[…] He is an Afghan, 23 years old. But he does not live in Berlin. He is from Swabian Ostfildern, southeast of Stuttgart. And he has no police record so far.

His motive does not seem to have been hostile. He just ran towards the world-famous chancellor. Upon doing so, he was stopped by a bodyguard, whose job it simply is to prevent such incidents. And he did not yell anything political — no slogans and definitely no suicide attack slogans.

So the case is being handled by the regular police, not by state security.

One is reminded of the famous advice that a German criminal psychologist gave, after the axe attack on board a Würzburg train:

“It is understandable that you feel threatened when someone with an axe enters the train. But we mustn’t become paranoid. It helps to go there and politely ask what it’s all about.”

  1. Go and ask the ax welder, “What gives?”
    And he’ll give you such a whack, you’ll never forget….in the next world!

  2. The Emperor’s new clothes are just marvellous! What? You can’t see them?? Tsch, tsch. There must be something wrong with you!!!

  3. It is nice to be a member of the elite with bodyguards while the average “citizen” faces the daily abuse by your invited cultural enhancers! I would think the good Merkel would have like to give that nice gentleman who was saying the traditional, politically correct, non-threating common Moslem greeting “Allah is a greater” a hug and selfie! Her bodyguards’overreaction to this outburst of greeting of “love” by a truly” grateful” man from the religion of” peace ” spoils the moment.

    In the near future, more people of the religion of peace who are truly” grateful” for the government of Germany to resettle the refugees will be trying to shower other members of the German government with similar” greetings” and physical contact of” love” that only Islam can understand and dispense.

    • Given the state of Ireland, I can’t bear to think of St. Patrick’s Day as “happy”. An indentured politically correct morass.

      And given the way SAINT Valentine’s Day has morphed into a Hallmark occasion, with the Saint stripped from the name, one can imagine March 17th becoming “Patricks Day” with none of those alive at the time having any idea why the beer is green but drink up everyone!

  4. I wonder what happened if the vest of a suicide bomber were on him? What would be the fate of Germany?

  5. In a world of organized jihad, this is exactly the kind of initial stage I would expect of an assassination plot. This incident should net the terrorists valuable intelligence.

  6. It’s seems the bodyguards were the paranoid ones! Why the hell did they stop him?! Maybe they’re RACISTS!!!
