Just as German citizens were recovering from a truck attack on a busy Christmas Market in Berlin, perpetrated by a Tunisian refugee seeking asylum, another instance of savagery in Berlin is suspected to have taken place at the hands of Syrian and Libyan migrants.
As ABC news reports, German police have arrested 7 refugees who are suspected of trying to set a homeless man on fire over the Christmas holiday. The attack took place at around 2:00am on Sunday at the Schoenleinstrasse U-Bahn subway station (in Berlin).
A group of migrant teenagers, found to be refugees from Syria and Libya, were recorded lighting an object on fire and throwing it onto a 37-year-old homeless man who was sleeping on a bench inside the station. The man’s cloths were set ablaze and fellow citizens rushed to stop the flames from spreading by grabbing a nearby fire extinguisher to put out the fire.
Berlin’s state interior minister Andreas Geisel addressed the attack by stating, “These days we should expect charity. Instead, we are experiencing human contempt.”
The entire incident was reportedly caught on camera and the German police are treating the attack as a suspected murder case. Six of the attackers came from Syria and one from Libya, each came to Berlin seeking asylum.
German investigators are questioning seven young men who are suspected of trying to set a homeless man alight in a Berlin subway station over Christmas.
Six of the suspects turned themselves in Monday evening and the seventh was arrested after authorities released surveillance camera pictures and video footage of them in a subway train, police said Tuesday.
The suspects are between 15 and 21. Six are from Syria and one is from Libya, and all came to Berlin as asylum-seekers, according to prosecutors.
The 37-year-old homeless man was sleeping on a bench in the Schoenleinstrasse subway station when his clothes were set alight at around 2 a.m. Sunday. Passers-by extinguished the paper that he apparently had used to cover himself, and a train driver used a fire extinguisher to prevent the flames spreading.
The man, who was intoxicated, was unhurt.
Prosecutors are seeking to keep all seven suspects in custody pending possible charges on suspicion of attempted murder.
As Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel continues to defend her open door immigration policy, which allowed over 1 million migrants into her country largely from war torn areas of the Middle East, German citizens are paying the price with unprecedented acts of violence towards the population.
Meanwhile, a German police officer was arrested for daring to criticize Angela Merkel and her immigration policies, which are the direct cause of the violence Germany is experiencing at the hands of migrants.
There seems to be no end in sight to these horrific acts of violence across European countries that have decided to generously open their doors to migrants, some of which have nothing but hatred for the West, and no viable solution is being proposed by these nation’s leaders. Although this attack did not result in the loss of life, it shows yet another example of asylum seekers having no desire to assimilate and become productive members of Western society.
As these attacks continue, Germany may be having their own Donald Trump style election when Merkel is up for reelection next year.
