Multicultural Diversity in Germany

In America, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has begun to crack down on the Salvadoran criminal gang called MS-13. In Germany, where people are more enlightened, police and judicial authorities have ceded areas of the nation to criminal gangs. Many, if not most of the gang members are Muslims, but they have been in Germany for a generation or two. They are, as one says, assimilated.

German prosecutors and judges are too afraid to do anything. Soeren Kern reports on the phenomenon for the Gatestone Institute. (via Maggie’s Farm) As always, his report contains extensive documentation.

Kern begins with the action in a Hanover court, a court that exculpated gang members who wounded police officers. If they can get away with injuring the police, what can’t they get away with:

A court in Hanover has handed suspended sentences to six members of a Kurdish clan who seriously wounded two dozen police officers during a violent rampage in Hameln. The court's ruling was greeted with anger and derision by police who said it is yet another example of the laxity of Germany's politically correct judicial system.

The case goes back to January 2014, when a 26-year-old clan member, arrested for robbery, tried to escape from the magistrate's office by jumping out of a seventh-floor courtroom window. The suspect was taken to the hospital, where he died. Members of his clan subsequently ransacked the hospital, as well as the court, and attacked police with rocks and other projectiles; 24 police officers and six paramedics were injured.

The judge said he was lenient because the defendants witnessed the death of the 26-year-old and were traumatized. The judge also revealed that he had reached a deal with the clan, which among other effects prevented police from testifying in court.

The real reason for the pusillanimous approach:

Observers have surmised that the real reason for the judge's leniency was that he feared his family might be subjected to retribution from the clan.

Middle Eastern crime syndicates have established themselves across Germany, where they engage in racketeering, extortion, money laundering, pimping and trafficking in humans, weapons and drugs.

The syndicates, which are run by large clans with origins in Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, among other places, operate with virtual impunity because German judges and prosecutors are unable or unwilling to stop them.

The clans — some of which migrated to Germany during Lebanon's 1975-1990 civil war and have grown to thousands of members — now control large swathes of German cities and towns — areas that are effectively lawless and which German police increasingly fear to approach.

In other contexts, these are No-Go zones. In the midst of splendidly liberal Europe organized criminal enterprises are occupying the nation, setting their own rules and refusing to respect the nation’s laws. The Europeans are facing an invading army, not refugees seeking succor. As long as Merkel and Co. allow it to happen, it will continue to happen. Similar No-Go zones exist in other European nations, like France and Sweden.

The German judicial system has failed. Kern continues:

Ralph Ghadban, a Lebanese-German political scientist and a leading expert on Middle Eastern clans in Germany, said that the Hanover ruling was a massive failure of the German judicial system. He added that the only way for Germany to achieve control over the clans is to destroy them:

"In their concept of masculinity, only power and force matter; if someone is humane and civil, this is considered a weakness. In clan structures, in tribal culture everywhere in the world, ethics are confined to the clan itself. Everything outside the clan is enemy territory."

In an interview with Focus, Ghadban elaborated:

"I have been following this trend for years. The clans now feel so strong that they are attacking the authority of the state and the police. They have nothing but contempt for the judiciary.... The main problem in dealing with clans: state institutions give no resistance. This makes the families more and more aggressive — they simply have no respect for the authorities....

It’s hard to imagine that the gangs do not respect German girl power. It’s impossible to believe that they do not understand that women are just as strong as men. Apparently, they see girl power as a sign of weakness. They are exploiting the weakness. 

How bad is it? Here is some documentation:

In Berlin, a dozen or more Lebanese clans dominate organized crime in the German capital, according to Die Welt. They effectively control the districts of Charlottenburg, Kreuzberg, Moabit, Neukölln and Wedding. The clans are committed to counterfeiting, dealing in drugs, robbing banks and burglarizing department stores. Experts estimate that around 9,000 people in Berlin are members of clans.

The clans reject the authority of the German state. Instead, they run a "parallel justice system" in which disputes are resolved among themselves with mediators from other crime families. A classified police report leaked to Bild described how the clans use cash payments and threats of violence to influence witnesses whenever German police or prosecutors get involved.

And also:

In Mülheim, around 80 members of two rival clans got into a mass brawl following a dispute between two teenagers. When police arrived, they were attacked with bottles and stones. More than 100 police backed up by helicopters were deployed to restore order. Five people were taken into custody but then released.

In Munich, police arrested 20 female members of a Croatian clan believed to be responsible for up to 20% of all the burglaries committed in Germany. Investigators believe that the clan has at least 500 members throughout Germany.

In Bremen, police effectively surrendered to clans from Kurdistan and the Balkans because of the need to conserve limited personnel resources for the fight against spiraling street crime by migrant youths.

Welcome to multiculturally diverse Germany.

I wonder why Obama never cracked down on MS-13...

The Germans are slowly surrendering to the Muslimns. I can see why the Germans "get no respect"; they don't deserve it, and they're not going to earn it. Too late for that.

There may be increasing ethnic diversity in Germany, but there seems to be very little diversity of thought on these issues at official levels.
