AFGHAN REFUGEE DROVE TRUCK INTO A CHRISTMAS CROWD IN BERLIN, GERMANY-TERROR ATTACK

AFGHAN REFUGEE DROVE Truck INTO A CHRISTMAS CROWD IN BERLIN, GERMANY-TERROR ATTACK

I didn’t think this was a terror attack this morning but apparently it is as the driver of the truck was identified as a muslim.

So this must be the welcoming committee for the President Elect Donald Trump – from Turkey, Russia & Berlin.

Trump, who knows jack shit will lead America into World War 3 and I sincerely hope from the bottom to the top of my heart that all the American republican nut jobs that voted for him get to go and die for him.

I hope he starts a draft and drafts Michael B that Armenian douchbag from Michigan – 22 yr old 2nd time voter who voted for trump. May he and his family find no peace for the rest of their lives.

=====================================================

It’s hard to find any pity for the German’s who started this whole Afghan refugee crapola.

BERLIN — A truck driver plowed into a crowded Christmas market late Monday on a city square in central Berlin, killing at least 12 people and injuring dozens of others, in what the police said they believed was an attack.

German media reported that the truck driver jumped the sidewalk around wooden stands at the market, which was set up around the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, whose jagged spire, a reminder of the bombings during World War II, is one of the most symbolic sites in Berlin. It sits between two main streets that run through the heart of West Berlin.

Local media reported that the driver fled the scene. Later, the Berlin police said they had arrested a man near the Christmas market, but they were not immediately able to confirm whether he was the driver. The police also said a passenger was found dead in the cab of the truck.

Firefighters at the site could be seen surrounding the trailer of the truck, parked on the square at the base of the tower of the church. Emergency vehicles surrounded the square and the police asked people to stay at home.

The Truck’s Path Through a Crowded Christmas Market in Berlin

The truck could be seen afterward on one edge of the market after having traveled about 250 feet through stalls and shoppers.

Wooden boards were scattered on the ground as though the truck had driven straight into one of the small stands that sells sweets, sausages, Christmas decorations, jewelry, crafts and small gifts.

The episode immediately evoked memories of the attack last July in Nice, France, when a truck driver struck and killed more than 80 people during Bastille Day celebrations.

A police spokesman said a suspect had been arrested nearby shortly after a truck crashed into a Berlin Christmas market.

Though that carnage came in the midst of a series of terrorist attacks linked to jihadists in France, it was never clear if the Islamic State or other Islamist groups were connected to the driver, who had a long history of disturbed and violent behavior.

The mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, rushed to the market. “It’s terrible to see this scene,” he said. “It’s exactly what we did not want to see in Berlin.”

The interior minister, Thomas de Maizière, said he was immediately alerted after the episode and expressed his condolences to the families of the victims. “I am in direct contact with security officials in Berlin and have asked for support from the federal police.”

Federal prosecutors have taken over the investigation.

Germany has not seen a large-scale terror attack, such as the ones this year in Brussels and Nice, but the authorities have said that the country remains on alert after smaller attacks this year, including a suicide bombing in Bavaria, which the authorities said was linked to the Islamic State.

Christmas markets are a beloved German tradition. They open on the first Sunday in advent and attract thousands of visitors throughout the month of December until Christmas Eve.

Redwan Emhemed, 17, was at a shopping mall across the street from the market just before the attack. He said he saw the truck come down the street and barrel into the stands about 15 yards away from the church.
