Since German Chancellor Angela Merkel embarked on her feckless and reckless refugee policy, Germany has encountered many problems with rising crime rates.  The latest serious problem is a gang of self-appointed “Sharia police” who are terrorizing women and gay people in Berlin.

The International Business Times reports:

A gang of armed Chechen Muslims are terrorising women in Germany who do not adhere to their strict interpretation of the Quran.

Reports suggest up to 100 men belong to the vigilante group, which ‘punishes’ Chechen women who are seen to behave immorally, including fraternising with non-Chechen men, smoking, drinking or visiting swimming pools.

Gay Chechens – many of whom sought asylum in Germany because of the Islamic Republic’s purge of homosexuals – are also victimised by the Berlin-based mob.

Two young Chechen women were seriously injured as a result of recent attacks in Berlin, while another two were threatened and chased, according to Tagesspiegel.

A video has been circulated among Berlin’s Chechen community in which a masked man points a gun at the camera and says:

“Here, in Europe, certain Chechen women and men who look like women do unspeakable things…

“Those who have lost their national mentality, who flirt with men of other ethnic groups and marry them, Chechen women who have chosen the wrong path and those who call themselves Chechen men – given half a chance, we will set all of them straight….

“Do not say that you were not warned; do not say that you did not know. May Allah grant us peace and set our feet on the path towards justice.”

The gang does not discriminate between Muslims and non-Muslims, treating all who stray with equally-ferocious violence.

The Gatestone Institute reports:

The self-appointed morality police involve Salafists from Chechnya, a predominantly Sunni Muslim region in Russia. The vigilantes are using threats of violence to discourage Chechen migrants from integrating into German society; they are also promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in Germany. German authorities appear unable to stop them.

. . . .  The gang members, who also come from Dagestan and Ingushetia, have attacked Muslims as well as non-Muslims, including Christian asylum seekers at migrant shelters in Berlin.

The gang is linked to several Salafist mosques in the German capital, including Fussilet 33, which once served as the headquarters of the so-called Berlin Caliphate. The mosque was shuttered by German authorities in February 2017, after they learned that Anis Amri, the Tunisian jihadist who carried out the suicide attack on a Berlin Christmas market, had sheltered there.

Around 60,000 Chechens live in Germany, according to official statistics, although the actual number is believed to be much higher. Nearly 40,000 Chechens have applied for asylum in Germany during just the past five years; many have crossed the border illegally from Poland.

An internal paper produced by the Federal Audit Office (Bundesrechnungshofes) revealed that “the majority of the unauthorized persons in Germany are Russian citizens of Chechen ethnicity, some of whom have been linked to the Islamic terrorist environment.”

So far, Merkel’s ideas for combating this type of violence from Syrian refugees and immigrants is offering classes in how not to rape women (and boys), taxpayer-funded German language courses, and public admonitions to “integrate” into German society.  It’s not yet clear what, if any, solution she has for this Chechen volunteer “police” force that is terrorizing the German people in their own city.
