They aren’t exactly hiding their identity when they are shouting “Allahu Akbar” as dozens of Muslim invaders went wilding in the streets and ransacking shops in Stuttgart, Germany on Saturday night. They attacked police with stones and bottles in clashes which quickly escalated into the city’s worst-ever night of rioting, described as “war” by one officer.
DailyMail (h/t Lisa) Of the 24 people arrested, 12 were (Muslim) foreign nationals while three of the other 12 were (Muslim) German nationals with a migrant background, police announced at a press conference on Sunday.
Hans-Jürgen Kirstein, the head of a police union, told Bild that ‘young people (Muslims) with a migration background were at the front of the riots’.
German chancellor Angela Merkel today condemned the violence as ‘abhorrent’ after even paramedics were attacked with bottles while trying to help an injured person.
Police say there was no sign of a political motivation, although some have linked the riots to the anti-police protests in the United States. Footage verified by German media showed some of the rioters chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’, meaning ‘Our God is greater’ in Arabic, as they ran down a street during the night-time violence.
Muslim blogger Nasir Ahmad condemned the rioters for ‘abusing’ the phrase, saying it is meant to be ‘not a call to terror, but call to prayer and peace’. (CRAP! It is a well-known Muslim war cry)
Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert said today: ‘Whoever has done this has turned against their city, against the people with whom they live and against the laws that protect us all.’
Stuttgart’s deputy police chief Thomas Berger said in his 30 years as a police officer he had never seen violence like this and ‘there have never been any scenes like this in Stuttgart,’ he said.
Some 200 to 300 people immediately started attacking police in ‘solidarity’ with the teenager, and the crowd of rioters eventually grew as high as 500, he said.
The rioters even threw bottles at paramedics who had been called to an ’emergency’ at the scene, he said. German media has described the scenes as a ‘battlefield’.
