I have long said that there was the chance that terrorists were hiding among the Syrian refugees. That a vast majority of these people were not victims but seeking to get free rides in Europe’s liberal welfare states. And I have often bemoaned the fact that these same individuals do not stand up to or condemn the murders in their midst.
So, it would only be right for me to commend those who stand up against the people tearing their homes apart. Those who have risked their lives and their standing in their community to fight oppression and murder. So, I gladly report that I finally have that opportunity.
A Syrian man wanted for allegedly preparing a bombing attack was apprehended by three of his countrymen, who overpowered him, tied him up in their apartment, and then alerted police, authorities said Monday.
The overnight arrest of Jaber Albakr ended a nearly two-day nationwide search for the 22-year-old that German authorities launched after finding several pounds of explosives and components hidden inside an apartment in the eastern city of Chemnitz on Saturday.
And here is an example of doing the right thing. These men risked everything to stop this villain from killing innocent women and children. They saw what needed to be done and they acted on what they knew was right.
Albakr arrived in Germany amid a flood of 890,000 asylum seekers last year. Saxony criminal police chief Joerg Michaelis said that the three Syrians who captured him recognized the suspect from wanted posters police posted online as part of the manhunt.
After taking him to their apartment late Sunday night, two of the Syrians bound and held Albakr while the third brought a mobile phone photo of Albakr to a local police station, leading to the arrest early Monday, Michaelis said.
Only when the Muslim community gets involved in reporting and condemning these men will we see the end of this war.
