SWAT Team Discover Huge Stockpile of Islamist’s Weapons Near German Mosque

The stockpile of weapons was found near a mosque.

The weapons arsenal was discovered during a top secret raid by a SWAT team in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Local politician Ismail Tipi revealed details of the raid and warned of “the danger of fundamentalists”.

“The danger of fundamentalist Salafists who are ready to use violence arming themselves in Germany is very large. This secret raid finding this weapons cache makes this more than clear.”

The weapons were found in a cold room of a greengrocer near a mosque.

The state is the most populous state in Germany with nearly 18million people in the area, which includes Dusseldorf.

Mr Tipi, who is a member of the Hessian parliament, warned of the dangers of Salafi fundamentalists.

“Through the weapons arsenal, the sleeper cells and militant jihadis can be armed with weapons and prepare for their likely attack. This is exactly what I have always feared.”

Germany has seen sharp increases in the number of ultra-conservative Islamists known as Salafists in recent years, with the total number of sympathisers now seen at 8,900, up from 7,000 at the end of 2014, German officials said.


“If these fears are substantiated, we can assume that secret weapons arsenals are being set up for a big terrorist attack not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. It would be a dereliction of duty if we didn’t recognise this danger and find these weapons arsenals.”

He said: “According to my information, a weapons arsenal with war grade weapons was found in this search.”

“The danger of fundamentalist Salafists who are ready to use violence arming themselves in Germany is very large. This secret raid finding this weapons cache makes this more than clear.”

Three Syrian men were earlier this month suspected of planning large-scale attacks in Dusseldorf.

Mr Tipi, who is said to have received death threats for his comments against jihadis, raised concerns sleeper cells are gearing up for a terror attack on Germany.

He said: “The information about this is increasing. The fear is large that Salafist sleeper cells, jihadis, and ISIS terrorists in Germany get support from foreign intelligence services that are not friendly to us.”

He added: “Politicians must speak clearly about this. Read the rest of this entry »

“Mistakes can happen while waging jihad. That’s on us. We fumbled.” 

Steven Emerson reports:  Members of the al-Qaida-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham appear in a new online video apologizing for beheading a man they thought was fighting for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

It turns out the dead man was part of a Sunni rebel group fighting Assad’s forces. The dead man’s head was held up in a triumphant display in Aleppo.
