German Police: ISIS-Linked Terrorists Planned to Attack Synagogue on Yom Kippur

German Police: ISIS-Linked Terrorists Planned to Attack Synagogue on Yom Kippur

Four accomplices, including a Syrian migrant, arrested.

German police have foiled a major Islamic terror attack on a synagogue in the western German city of Hagen, German media reported. At least four people, including a young Syrian immigrant, were arrested in connection with a bomb plot to be executed during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.

German weekly Der Spiegel disclosed that the alleged terrorist cell had links to the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group. “According to the sources in law enforcement, the youth admitted being in contact with a bomb expert via the Telegram messaging service,” Der Spiegel reported. “The sources in law enforcement say that the person the youth had been in touch with is reported to be the member of the Islamic State terrorist militia,” the magazine added.

According to German news reports, an unnamed foreign spy agency alerted German authorities to the impending attack. “A foreign spy agency had tipped off the [German] Federal Intelligence Service (BND) about the alleged Islamist [plot], the sources in the security services say,” German newspaper Die Welt reported.

The German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle reported the details of the foiled jihadi attack:

German police arrested four people Thursday, including a teenager, over a threat of an attack on a synagogue on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.

Hagen police said they made the arrests as a result of their investigation into the threat and had searched several buildings.

It followed a huge police deployment late Wednesday at and around the synagogue in Hagen, a city just east of Düsseldorf. The synagogue canceled an event due to the threat.

On Thursday evening, police said that three of those arrested had been released. The 16-year-old main suspect remains in custody.

The Düsseldorf prosecutor’s office said that no bomb components had yet been discovered by investigators. Mobile phones and hard drives had been seized and are being evaluated, a spokesperson said.

The foiled attack likely had an Islamist motive, Armin Laschet, the state premier of North Rhine-Westphalia, suggested some hours after the news broke out.

“It appears that prior to today on Yom Kippur, an Islamist motivated attack was averted,” Laschet said. “We will do everything we can to clarify which networks may have been behind” the plot.

The planned Islamist attack on a Jewish place of worship coincides with a spike in antiemetic attacks in Germany. “The number of antiemetic crimes has risen in the past year,” the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeiner reported in February. The number rose from 2,032 in 2019 to 2,275 in 2020, the newspaper informed, citing government figures.

Since the beginning of the migrant influx of 2015, Germany’s tiny Jewish community has seen a surge in violent antisemitism. Failing to address the rising Muslim antisemitism, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has advised German Jews to hide their identity in public. In 2019, the German government’s Commissioner for Antisemitism told the country’s Jews to avoid wearing Kippah, or the Jewish skullcap. “I can’t advise Jews to wear Kippah at all times and everywhere in Germany,” Felix Klein, who heads the Federal Antisemitism Office, said.

The news of the foiled attack comes as Western intelligence agencies warn of the increased threat of Islamic terrorist attacks in the wake of the Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan. The Taliban takeover will have an “immediate inspirational effect” on terrorist cells in the West and may result in “well-developed, sophisticated plots of the sort that we faced in 9/11 and the years thereafter,” Director General of British MI5, Ken McCallum, admitted recently.

Wait till we see what these Afgan ‘immigrants’ Biden/Harris has flooded our country with do.

They let them all go but the 16 y/o?

    felixrigidus in reply to gonzotx. | September 18, 2021 at 4:46 am

    They have.

    The most likely explanation for this is that the reporting in the German press is misleading. Given that the 16yo is held in custody there is no way that they would have let any adult suspect go.

    The most likely explanation is that “they” were never arrested as a suspect in a terror plot in the first place. Unless it is a case of mistaken identity, they probably were temporarily in custody for interrogation or because they were interfering with the execution of a search warrant.

      “On Thursday evening, police said that three of those arrested had been released. The 16-year-old main suspect remains in custody.”

      Yep, bunch of BS. The 16 year old was probably screaming some dumb shit in Call of Duty and the BSD managed to “Roll-Up” an ISIS-K terror cell.

Savages gonna act like savages.

So, just like the Germans did during the 1940s version of the EU, they’re outsourcing the Jew-killing to their allies.

Will they also get armed and financed like the Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, and Ukrainians? Maybe spiffy, Hugo Boss-designed unis?

    You do realize German police worked hard foiling this attack right? All the cops had to do in order to get Jews killed was do nothing.

    I don’t like the way PC types overlook anti-semitism if the perp is either Muslim or non-White but stop hurling insults at Germans for something that isn’t true (that they back anti-Semitism).

    This is a stupid and bigoted comment.
    Since you obviously want to say “like Nazi Germany”, why not do it? Instead you chose to display your ignorance.
    To point to just two of the most glaring errors your comment contains:
    • in the 1940s there was no “version of the EU”
    • the Nazis did not “outsource the Jew-killing to their allies”, they did put most extermination camps outside Germany into occupied countries like Poland, for example.

    Ignoring the threat of Islamic terror is quite fashionable in leftist circles, but being accused of antisemitism is not. Leftists tend to be hypocritical and antisemitic, but in ways they can dissimulate.

    Since you obviously do not have anything substantive to say on the topic don’t try to make everyone dumber for reading your bile, please?

      Before they built the death camps, the Germans did in fact outsource a good deal of the killing to their Baltic, Ukrainian, and Croatian collaborators, who were a good deal more bloodthirsty than the Germans themselves.

Hoof Boss sure could design a Uni

The “number of antiemetic crimes has risen in the past year.” Does make me wonder what exactly would constitute an “antiemetic” attack. Applying a ball-gag to a very nauseated person?

    ” Does make me wonder what exactly would constitute an “antiemetic” attack.”

    Making someone fast for twenty-SIX hours, instead of the standard 25, for Yom Kippur, then force-feeding them Gefitle-Fish at the Break-Fast, right after Neilah…..

      Milhouse in reply to dmo. | September 19, 2021 at 12:02 am

      Nothing wrong with breaking ones fast on gefilte fish, provided you don’t mean that nasty stuff from a can or a jar. Most brands of the frozen logs are good, and some are excellent; if your only experience is with the canned or jarred stuff you should try the real thing before dismissing the entire category. (There are some jarred brands that are edible, and there used to be one — Noam — that was actually good, until it got taken over and changed its recipe, but those are exceptions.)

Notably the police foiled the attempt very easily without borderline fascist powers to do so yes?

Cops don’t need a national security state to do their job.

This won’t happen here in the U.S.

That is… arresting someone Islamic and calling their action “anti-Semitic”.

Because everyone knows every synagogue with a spray painted swastika is a a MAGAZINE hat wearing white supremacist

    Milhouse in reply to Doc-Wahala. | September 19, 2021 at 12:07 am

    It actually happens here quite often. The police don’t blame white supremacists for such incidents. Only the news industry and the Democrats do.

MAGA hat wearing

Spell check got me

Merkel’s sons…. 🇩🇪 ☪️

One brand new Muslim German “journalist” , Nemi El-Hassan, who had been prepped for diversity reasons for TV was found to have partaken in an Al Quds rally.

They try to prop up so called Palestinians and it blows up in their face every time.

hey btw .
in the USA 🇺🇸 the left pushes defund the cops and open borders.

In Germany 🇩🇪 and across the Western EU 🇪🇺 the left pushes open borders and Islam.

This is what you get.
