German domestic spy agency has caught an Islamist who had managed to infiltrate its ranks. According to the German weekly DER SPIEGEL, the 50-year-old man has partially confessed to the charges of infiltrating the spy agency and collecting information that might have led to a terrorist attack at the Cologne-based headquarters of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV).

A recent convert to Islam, the man was to communicating with other Radical Muslims on the internet and had offered fellow-Jihadis safe access inside the spy agency’s secure compound to launch an attack on “infidels” for “the cause of Allah”.  According to the agency’s director Hans-Georg Maaßen, the mole had “radicalised himself” without anyone around him noticing anything. That’s another case of mysterious “self-radicalisation” that baffles liberals and mainstream media so much.

What could easily be described as the worst HR move in the history since Emperor Caligula appointed his horse to the Roman senate, the fresh-convert to Islam was hired to monitor Islamist activities inside Germany.

German state-run broadcaster DW News reports:

Germany’s domestic intelligence agency (BfV) has discovered an Islamist working within its own ranks, according to domestic media reports on Tuesday. The case allegedly surrounds a 51-year-old German who planned to bomb the BfV headquarters in Cologne.

Officials say the man was active on extremist websites. Using a pseudonym, he gave away secret information, allegedly gathering information on the times and details of raids against extremists. News outlet “Der Spiegel” wrote that the man’s family was not even aware he had converted to Islam in 2014.

“Die Welt” newspaper reported that he had also boasted about having a plan in place to carry out an attack on his place of work, though according to authorities he did not appear to have yet taken any concrete steps into carrying it out.

He wrote online that such an attack against “unbelievers” would be “for Allah’s purpose.”

Islamic groups have already managed to infiltrate the German Army. An estimated 29 former German Army soldiers have joined the ranks of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, a military intelligence report revealed earlier this year. Since 2007, German Military Intelligence has investigated 320 active duty soldiers on suspicions of jihadist links. The infiltration of German and other European Armies is part Islamic State’s strategy. Islamic State has been telling potential recruits in Europe to get acquainted with Western military training before coming to Iran and Syria.

This is, however, the first instance that an Islamist has been successful in penetrating deep into Germany’s spy apparatus.
