The ripples from Rasmus Paludan’s Koran burnings continue to spread outwards: two Syrian brothers have been arrested in Germany for plotting a suicide bombing against a Swedish church. The bien-pensants of Svenska kyrkan were just as appalled by Mr. Paludan’s actions as were Muslims in Sweden, but that doesn’t matter — the Swedish church must pay for the sins of the notorious Islamophobe.
As a matter of interest, the incident has a very low Mohammed Coefficient of 0%.

Bothers arrested for terror plans against Swedish church
by Ebba Torstensson
May 24, 2023
The brothers Anas Kiwan, 28 and Ahmad Kiwan, 24 were arrested in Germany, suspected of planning a terror attack, writes Bild.
The Koran burnings in Sweden earlier this year are reportedly the reason for the terror plans.
“We have been able to establish that the target was a Swedish church, but we cannot go into details as to which church or where it was located in Sweden,” says Chief Prosecutor Oechtering to TT [Swedish news].
The two brothers, who are Syrian citizens, were arrested in Germany a month ago.
Anas Kiwan, 28, was arrested in Hamburg. During the arrest, police found components that can be used to make an explosive device. According to the German newspaper Die Welt, it was a bomb belt that would be used in the crime.
The younger brother, Ahmad Kiwan, 24, was arrested in Kempten in Bavaria. Since the arrest, the suspicions against him have been strengthened. He was first detained Tuesday and is now suspected to have been directly involved in plans to attack a Swedish church. A preliminary investigation is now underway, and it may be some time before an eventual charge is filed.
Visited Sweden for terror planning
The German prosecutor Liddy Oechtering will not go into which Swedish church was the target of the attack. “The investigators have gone through emails and chats between the brothers, and could see that it concerned a Swedish church. But the investigation continues. What I can say is that it appears to have something to do with the Koran burnings that took place in Sweden and which have been well-reported in German media,” says Chief Prosecutor Liddy Oechtering to TT.
The brothers have reportedly lived in Germany for several years and have no reported criminal record. The plans for the terrorist crime may be based on an Islamist motive, but there is no concrete connection to the so-called Islamic State (IS), Welt writes. There is also suspicion against them for terror financing.
Koran burnings in Sweden
The National Center for Terror Threat Assessment reported in its assessment for the entire year on March 8 that Sweden has gone from a legitimate target to a priority target for a terror attack. Säpo [Security Police] will not comment on whether they have had contacts with German authorities. “We won’t go into that. As far as our international cooperation is concerned, we don’t go into what it looks like. That is part of our operational work,” says Säpo’s press spokesperson Gabriel Wernstedt to TT.
Swedish Church in contact with Säpo
The Swedish Church [Svenska kyrkan] in Sweden has contacted Säpo to learn whether any of their churches were targeted. “We are seeking information to get as good a picture as possible of what this is about. But we only know what is in the media,” says Erika Brundin, deputy general secretary of the Swedish Church.
Below is a press release from the Hamburg Police, also translated by Gary Fouse:
Police-Hamburg: 230523-5. Joint press release by BKA (Federal Criminal Police), Public Prosecutor Hamburg, and Hamburg Police — Further arrest warrant after foiled bomb attack and execution of arrest warrant in Kempten.
Based on suspicion of a planned explosive attack, the State Prosecutor’s Office of Hamburg yesterday, in the course of a joint investigation of the BKA and KLA [State Police] Hamburg, executed another arrest warrant and arrested a person in Kempten.
Arrested is the 24-year-old brother of the previously-arrested 28-year-old Syrian in April 2023 in Hamburg (See press release from BKA, LKA Hamburg, and State Prosecutor’s Office Hamburg on April 25, 2023.)
There is now, according to the ongoing investigations, an urgent suspicion against the accused person, who resides in Kempten, earlier only suspected of aiding and abetting in the joint preparation of a serious endangerment of the State (Section 89c StGB) along with joint terror financing (Section 89c StGB-Criminal Code). According to the above, he is alleged to have not only encouraged his brother in his decision to commit the act (crime) and to have supported him in obtaining the necessary components for the production of explosives, but further, to have promised to carry out the attack with him. According to what is currently known, the accused persons had as their target a church in Sweden, not further identified, in which people would have been present at the time.
The 24-year-old, who since April 25, 2023, has been in the custody of the Schwaben Police Southwest, was yesterday arrested by forces of the BKA and taken to Hamburg. The Hamburg court today executed the arrest warrant against him.

Rasmus Paludan succinctly exposes Islam’s inherent thuggery.
The European Court found, in the Welfare Party case of 2003, that Islam’s rules – Sharia – are “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy”.
The murderous response to freedom of speech proves the point. As the muslim placard proclaims, “Freedom Go To Hell”.
Re: “The European Court found, in the Welfare Party case of 2003, that Islam’s rules – Sharia – are ‘incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy.'”
Quite rightly the court found that sharia is “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy,” and yet, those who runs things in nations like Germany and France and Sweden, continue to lecture their populations that more immigration is forthcoming. From this state of affairs, can we not then conclude that those who rule Europe are also against democracy?
In 1945, the great philosopher Sir Karl Popper spoke of the so-called “paradox of tolerance,” and said:
“Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”
Popper’s words now appear to be nothing short of prescient in light of the de facto conquest of Old Europe by the Muslims and their enablers since those words were first written almost eighty years ago.
Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.
That’s a great quote… and how true….
Planned to blow up a crowded Swedish church
Published 24 May 2023 in Fria tider
Two brothers from Syria had far-reaching plans to blow up a Swedish church – visitors and all. This is what the German federal authority Bundeskriminalamt writes in a press release.
On Monday, a 24-year-old Syrian, Ahmad K., was arrested in Kempten, Germany. His older brother, 28-year-old Anas K., was arrested on 25 April in dramatic fashion by a heavily armed task force in Hamburg.
According to the German police, their plan was to blow up an “unspecified church in Sweden”. In the church, “people would have been present at the time”, according to the plan.
They are suspected of jointly acquiring the necessary components to manufacture explosives to carry out the attack in Sweden, and of planning to carry it out together.
The bomb ingredients were ordered from Ebay and China, according to Bild. At Anas K.’s home, for example, urea fertiliser was discovered. A urea nitrate bomb was used in a terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York in 1993.
According to Bild, investigators discovered the suspected Swedish target of the attack after going through the suspects’ mobile phones and computers.
The Swedish Security Service would not comment on what it knows about the case.
“Questions regarding this matter are referred to the German authorities. In general, the Swedish Security Service has an ongoing and well-established collaboration with several other countries’ security services”, writes Säpo’s press secretary Fredrik Hultgren-Friberg in an email to Fria Tider.
Frankly, I do hope the islamic orcs follow through with their threats with a vengeance, then let the governments of Europe preach more tolerance towards the bloody orcs. LOL
