Merkel vows ‘everything possible’ for country’s security

Berlin, July 23 (IANS) German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday assured that the country’s security services will “do everything possible to protect the security and freedom of all people in Germany” in the wake of a shooting rampage at a mall in Munich and an axe attack on a train.

Merkel told reporters in Berlin that the train attack on Monday night and Friday night’s deadly rampage in Munich had involved “places where any of us could have been” and have left Germans wondering “where is safe?”.

“Such an evening and such a night is difficult to bear,” she said of the Munich attack, adding, “And it’s even more difficult to bear because we have had so much terrible news in so few days”.

Merkel expressed her condolences over the deadly shooting attack in Munich in which nine people were killed Friday, CNN reported.

Addressing the bereaved families of the victims, she said, “We share your pain. We think of you. We suffer with you.”

“We are mourning those who will never go back to their families,” she added.

French President Francois Hollande has expressed his condolences and support for Germany after the Munich attack, calling it an “ignoble act aimed at spreading horror in Germany. (Germany) will stand up to this. It can count on France’s friendship and cooperation” .

  1. Merkel is a liar. If she cared about the security of Germans, she would have prevented the migration of such people to Germany.

  2. Angela Merkel would like to know how to make Germany safe, here is what I suggest :

    1. Bring in more immigrants, instead of 1.2 million like you did last year, double or triple their numbers.
    2. Get Zakir Naik and his peace TV, he is looking for a place to rest.

    …and Germany will be the safest country in the world.

  3. Prior to world war II Hitler Nazi Germany it is the biggest threat to the minority Jews of EU.

    The mass exodus of immigrant of Jews being finally settled in the heart of Middle East which came into existance in 1948 as israel. Today this is mighty nation with Nuclear power with nearly $10 billion annual grant from US is become threat to the entire region.

    The west adventure of war in these region is the single reason for this immigrant influx. The foregin policy and west and ME relation need immediate attention to counter the immigration issues.

    These proxy wars and arms shipment need to halted to address the humanitarian catastrophe.

  4. Mr Jay,

    Where is Dr Zakir Naik hiding now? It appears, he has gone underground and will not step into India or Bangladesh now. He has forgotten his Islamic Peace Foundation in Bombay and the authorities have, it appears, arrested two members of his staff and we understand Dr Zakir Naik had links in recruiting for ISIS, conversions, etc.

    If people lack quality education or are semi-literates, they fall to preachers with the gift-of-the-gab like Dr Zakir Naik, who have become multi-millionaires at these hapless people’s cost.

  5. Terrorism can be solved by screening immigrants, especially from those countries that produce terrorists or are prone to terrorism and not opening the doors to refugees. The host countries do not know what sort of people they are entertaining and what is in store for them.

    Imagine people from impoverished countries going to west and then start dictating terms to them: what they should wear and eat etc. It is like a person going as a guest to someone’s house and instead of adjusting to the household and being on his best behaviour, dictating his terms to them.

  6. The Jews have lived in Israel for the past 3,500 years, even before Islam made an appearance. Some Jews stayed in Israel, others got scattered due to persecutions by Romans, etc. Islam was born only in 631 A.D. and spread rapidly and widely due to forced conversions. I hope all have heard of the Mughal Emperor, Aurangzeb, and how he forcibly converted people into Islam. Israel is not the cause of problems, but it is the fanatical elements in some Muslim countries, including Pakistan. Most of the terrorists who struck various landmarks in America were from Saudi Arabia and most of the products that cause terrorism are manufactured in Pakistani factories.

  7. I have partially answered your query and would like to add further.

    The threat to this world is not from Israel, but from the terrorist State of Pakistan (their hundreds of Madrassas are production factories and conveyor belts for terrorists) and, apart from Pakistan, there is the totalitarian and expansionist China and Jong Il Un’s Stalinist North Korea.

    Israel inspite of not having oil and natural gas is technologically, industrially, economically and culturally, one of the most highly developed countries and has a per capita income of US $ 33,000/-.

    Further, as per statistics, Israelis have sound and quality education and countrywise are the most highly educated nationality in the world. Some of their (and also Indian) educational institutions are listed amongst the world’s best and their Technion (like India’s IITs) is internationally revered.

    Pakistan has no colleges or institutions that have international recognition and the graduation and post-graduation degrees that they issue are as precious as paper.
