Germany: An Islamist knife attacker of Iraqi origin injures a man life-threateningly because his father, who appears to be of Turkish origin, was seen on an AfD poster

Stolberg’s knife attack is apparently not only “connected” with the local elections in North Rhine-Westphalia, as the WDR (West German Broadcasting) reported in an initial report, but also appears to be an Islamist act of revenge, and a case of clan liability.The victim, a 23-year-old man, is the son of a man who is “optically of Turkish origin” (according to the spokesman for the Düsseldorf Attorney General’s Office in an interview with the magazine TE) and was seen with four other people in a photo that the AfD published on Facebook on the occasion of the local elections in NRW. One of the four is the spokesperson of the AfD city association of Stolberg, as the spokesperson of the North-Rhine Westphalian AfD says.The Attorney General’s Office describes the crime in the same way at the request of TE: When the later victim drove his car slowly through a traffic-calmed zone at a pond in Stolberg in the night from Sunday, a 21-year-old man holding a German and Iraqi passport apparently identified him. “In anger over the photo”, which he apparently considered, as the press spokesman put it, to be “treason”, the German-Iraqi man struck the car of the later victim.He stopped, opened the door. Then the German-Iraqi stabbed him twice with a knife and then fled. Witnesses have heard him shouting “Allahu Akbar” during the violence. The victim is hospitalized after an emergency surgery, seriously injured.The fugitive was arrested by the police on Sunday evening and is now in police custody. “The wanted man could be arrested in Stolberg in a vehicle as a passenger by a mobile task force”, the Cologne police twittered on Sunday evening. He apparently also attacked the police officers: “During the attack, the driver, passenger and a police officer were injured and receive medical treatment,” the police said.
