There was a terrorist attack in Limburg yesterday. A man hijacked a truck and drove onto parked vehicles and a group of pedestrians. 17 people were injured. The attacker, a 30-year-old Syrian, had come to Germany as an asylum seeker in 2015 and was already known to the police – but he still had the right to stay.
Alice Weidel, chairman of the AfD parliamentary group in the German Bundestag, commented on yesterday’s Islamic terrorist attack in Limburg:
“While Horst Seehofer pleads for the welcome of even more ‘refugees’, the citizens look to the future with concern. Following the knife attack in France and the attempted attack against a Berlin synagogue last weekend, Limburg is just another incident that has happened shortly after. The Limburg case is symptomatic of the circumstance that the perpetrator was already known to the security authorities as a threat and was nevertheless not deported.Interior Minister Seehofer must finally take action. Instead of dealing with sea rescue or hoping that the European external borders will be protected by others, the German border must now be secured immediately. In addition, not only must every dangerous person be removed from the country, but a comprehensive check must also be carried out on those who have been entering Germany unhindered since 2015. Anyone who has already committed a criminal offence has to leave Germany immediately.Furthermore, repatriations to safe areas of Syria must no longer be taboo. The Federal Government must finally take care of its own citizens!
