Terror Struck in Germany





By Mahmoud El-Yousseph 



14 July, 2009

Terror struck in heart of Europe two weeks ago and you may have not heard about it on your local TV station or in you home town newspaper. The reason is: The perpetrator of this gruesome crime was not a Muslim and the victim was neither a Jew or Westerner. That is the ugly truth!

When Muslims are the victims, news room often wants to know first if there is a local connection. Understandable. But where was the local connection as the world came to an end last November when terror struck in Mumbai, India ? There was no local connection to the innocent Israeli child who survived Mumbai’s massacre but his parents were not as lucky.

On July 1st, Marwa El-Sherbini, a 32 years old pharmacist was in involved in a court case in Dresden, Germany against Axel W. who was found guilty last November for insulting and abusing her calling her a “terrorist” and Islamic whore over wearing the “hijab” or headscarf.

Axel who is an unemployed Russian-born German was in the court room appealing the court fine of 780 euros($1370) when suddenly he stabbed his victim with the knife 18 times in front of her 3-years old son Mustafa. When her husband, Elwi Ali Okaz, a genetic engineering student came to her aid, was also stabbed and then shot in the leg by a security guard who mistook for the attacker.

The wife died instantly. The husband is in a critical condition in a German hospital, and the now motherless child is cared for by relatives. Mrs. El-Shebini remain was buried in her hometown of Alexandria, Egypt. If that was not a terrorist act, I do not know what is!

This tragic event sent a shock wave worldwide, however: German TV news and other Western news media were silent about this cruel murder, while incident with less importance were given wide coverage.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel office remained lip-tied for a whole week. Instead of condemning this crime and issuing and apology, her office issued statement that the Chancellor will offer condolences to the Egyptian president during the G 8 summit in Italy. This is the very same” Nazi Markel” who advocated two years ago, “no mosque will be built in Germany that has minarets taller than the steeple of a church.”

It is precisely this kind bigotry and prejudice attitude against Muslims that inspired people to discriminate against Muslims and target them for violent acts in Germany and elsewhere..

Meanwhile reaction from other media and politicians in Germany was lukewarm and can best be described as sluggish. This was not an isolated incident. It was a prime example of how hate crimes against Muslims are overlooked in comparison to those committed by Muslims against Westerners.

10 days after Mrs. El-Sherbini’s death 1500 residents of Dresden attended a public memorial organized by local civil rights groups at Dresden City Hall to honor the memory of the victim of this crime. Many carried white roses and laid it next to a big poster of the victim.

Mrs. El-Sherbini moved to Germany four years ago to be with her husband , who was granted a fellowship to study genetic engineering. They wanted to built a better life for themselves and their family, practice religious freedom and maintain their religious and cultural identity. That was their only crime.. Marwa is now known by fellow Muslims everywhere as ,” Hijab Martyr”.

    Thank you, Mahmoud, for a most moving article.

    Here’s a nice photo of the “headscarf martyr”, as she is called in her native Egypt. Funny, she doesn’t look very Egyptian to me. She looks just like a European.

    Are you wondering why the German media have fallen so silent about this brutal murder of a Muslim woman and her unbrorn child? Don’t wonder! Just ask yourself: Who owns the German media?

    Are you wondering why this brutal murder of a Muslim woman has been hidden away in the back pages of American newspapers? Don’t wonder! Just ask yourself: Who owns most American newspapers?

    Are you wondering why this brutal murder of a Muslim woman has hardly mentioned on British television, French television, Italian television, Australian television, Canadia television? Don’t wonder! Just ask yourself: Who owns British television, French television, Italian television, Australian television, Canadian television?

  3. #3 by Xanadu on 07/15/2009 - 8:57 pm

    Yes, don’t wonder! But just ask yourself what the world’s reaction would have been if a JEWISH woman had been killed and her JEWISH husband critically wounded!

    It would have been a second Holocaust!

    There would have demands for $10 billion in compensation for the poor Jewish relatives of the victims — the poor dear Jewish relatives, traumatized beyond belief in Tel Aviv, Manhattan and Golders Green!

    Double standards are being applied here.

    If you are a Jew, you will receive the kindest treatment: tears, publicity, financial compensation. If you are a Muslim, you will receive nothing but a lump of spit in your face.

    That is the exact same reaction that I had when I heard this… but I take it to it’s next logical progression – which is :

    ALL the media is owned by ‘Jews’, right ? This is without question. This ‘terrorist’ murderer (who obviously hated Muslims VERY MUCH) was – we are told – a ‘German’ (from Russia ?)…

    Hmmmm… Don’t the ‘Jews’ who own and control all of the mainstream media ABSOLUTELY HATE Germans !?! Wouln’t the ‘Jewish’ owned media just love to drag a German’s name through the proverbial mud ?… I think so !

    WHY aren’t we being BOMBARDED by this news ? Doesn’t this just help to demonstrate that Germans are the inhuman, murderous monsters that the ‘Jews’ have always told us that they were ?!? I can just hear them now…

    “SEE !? SEE !? We TOLD you Germans were ruthless maniacs ! Now do you believe us ?”

    And another thing that strikes me as VERY strange : WHY are we only told the FIRST name of this terrible ‘German’ ?… Seems to me I know of a certain group of very wealthy folk who obscure their last names ALL THE TIME !

    Isn’t it quite possible that this mystery man – who apparently hates Muslims A LOT – is himself Jewish ? Is Alex W[______]… a ‘Jew’ ?

    It certainly would explain the near total silence, and the obscufication of his last name, wouldn’t it ?

  6. #6 by AHMED K on 07/16/2009 - 12:15 pm

    Another “gift” from the Judeo-christian civilisation…
    Will be added to the ever increasing pile of “gifts” given to us by the Judeo-christian civilisation….
    Merkel should apologise to Mankind, at least the segment that still has some humanity left…

    Just a point on the headscarf that the Muslim woman wears..
    It is not a religious symbol, but a symbol of decency, modesty …

    The Prodigal Son July 16, 2009 at 4:53 am

    Many good points here, Prodigal Son. You have obviously thought long and deeply on these matters.

    Regarding your comment: “Hmmmm… Don’t the ‘Jews’ who own and control all of the mainstream media ABSOLUTELY HATE Germans!?! Wouln’t the ‘Jewish’ owned media just love to drag a German’s name through the proverbial mud ? . . . I think so!

    Yes, the Jews certainly have it in for the Germans, as the book below makes plain.


    According to Jewish ‘academic’ Daniel Goldhagen, every single German was to blame for the Holocaust. Hence the wrath of the Jews must be reserved for the Germans forever. As for reparations, they must go on until the end of time.

  8. #8 by Xanadu on 07/16/2009 - 9:01 pm

    If you have any doubts about the undying hatred of the Jews for the Germans, consider this quote from famous ‘Holocaust survivor’ Elie Wiesel:

    “Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate — healthy, virile hate — for what the German personifies and for what persists in the Germans. To do otherwise would be a betrayal of the dead.”

    Hmmmn…I wonder what our German friend Janet thinks of that!

    Montecristo, Just wrote you a very long email and could not send it. Give me an email address. janet


    Janet, please take my advice and never leave your email address on the internet for all to see! You are taking grave risks and exposing yourself to all sorts of security risks! I’m not saying this ‘Montecristo’ is a Mossad agent or sex pervert or anything nasty like that…but honey, you can’t be sure! He could be a real creepy guy!

    Sorry if I embarras, but I’m just trying to help you…because you sound a bit too trusting…maybe you’re a bit young and naive?

    Please be more careful, Janet. Men can be pretty dangerous! Don’t trust any stranger on the internet — for your own good!

    Traffickers of exploiters of others Pain thats what they are!

    On June 20th 2009, Neda Agha Soltan was shot dead during the post-election protests in Iran. The protests occupied the largest news segments around the world, with analysts and commentators predicting the fall of the Iranian regime and the dawn of freedom breaking in “the axis of evil.”


    On July 1st Marwa El Sherbini, an Egyptian researcher living in Germany, was stabbed to death 18 times inside a courtroom in the city of Dresden, in front of her 3-year-old son. She had won a verdict against a German man of Russian descent who had verbally assaulted her because of her veil. Her husband, who rushed in to save her when she was attacked in the courtroom, was shot by the police. Marwa’s death was not reported by any Western news media until protests in Egypt erupted after her burial. The reporting that followed focused on the protests; the murder was presented as the act of a “lone wolf,” thus depriving it of its context and its social meaning.

  11. #11 by Madame Butterfly on 07/16/2009 - 9:46 pm


    Please forgive me for suggesting you could be “a Mossad agent or sex pervert.” That was damn silly of me! Sincere apologies.

    I just remembered your earlier post to Jalid advising him not to give away his email address to strangers on the internet. Hold on…..I’ll try and find find it!

    [Later] Ah yes…..here it is!

    Montecristo July 5, 2009 at 6:41 pm
    [to Jalid on ‘Wag the Dog’ thread]:

    “I don’t think it’s advisable to give your email address to a stranger on the internet, Jalid. It can cause all sorts of problems. I’m sure Xanadu is trustworthy, but it just isn’t wise to reveal your email address. I doubt if she would want to reveal her address either.”

    So it seems you have the same reservations as I do about the exchange of email addresses. Sincere apologies, Montecristo, for suggesting you might be a “creepy guy”. Will you forgive me?

  12. #12 by Jalid on 07/16/2009 - 10:01 pm

    I just realised something …
    Headscarfed woman from islam and Nuns!
    Nuns were around before THE Islamic faith asked woman to cover their heads …
    Women covering their heads isnt a religious simbol like a cross or a star but it is a command
    That as a consequence brings decency honour and respect.
    Yesterday, I saw two women downtown, Mother and daughter sporting shorts and those little short t shirts that go over the belly
    As they passed i couldnt help but look behind them (South American culture) you know, their back middle part THEY BOTH HAD TATTOS REACHING THE BEGUINNING OF THEIR bUTTS
    I sat there laughing
    When a nun passes by you just get a sense of humanity and respect
    These apocaliptic times are funny and who is promoting it?
    you know WHO!

    Mr Mahmoud El-Yousseph writes with understanding and depth. He has researched his subject well. He has many fine ideas and is obviously a man of very high intelligence.

    However, I am against his article for two reasons.

    (1) It is anti-Semitic in tone and panders to the Islamofascist elements digging away at the foundations of our society. It thus encourages future Osama bin Ladens to carry out attacks on our beloved America. In short, without meaning to do so, Mahmoud is helping the spread of Islamic terrorism by writing an article saying nice things about a hijab-wearing Muslim lady in a foreign land. (I mean, if she’d stayed in Egypt, she wouldn’t have got killed, would she? So why did she have to go to Germany?)

    (2) The article, I confess, also makes me mad angry and jealous. This is because I can’t write like this and Mahmoud can. This is unfair on me because I know I am clever also. Maybe I’m not as smart a cookie as Mahmoud, but I’m not exactly dumb.

    These are my thoughts. Too bad if you don’t like them.

    You are a dangerous man. Dare I speak with you? How can I be sure you will not corrupt me with your outlandish thoughts?

    Just wrote you a very long email and could not send it. Give me an
    email address. janet

    Foolish woman! How can you give your email address to this man? He has attacked me constantly, abused me constantly. Aren’t you aware that, if he replies to you, you will soon be entering into correspondence with a psychopath?

    Montecristo is not to be trusted. If you value your own peace of mind, have nothing to do with him. He is the lowest of the low.

  16. #16 by janet E Marsh on 07/17/2009 - 1:49 am

    I do believe that quote came from Elie Weasel. He is a liar and a cheat.
    Also a plagiarist. Stated that he wrote a book and was proven that another
    man wrote it.

    I can’t understand it, why are the jews flocking to Germany? Since
    they hate the Germans and since they are running like mad to get there, how
    can anyone believe that the Germans treated them so bad.

    Read Arthur Koestler’s book The Thirteenth Tribe and see what he wrote what is waiting for the jew when the Gentile finds out what a hoax they
    perpetrated on them.

    To Ruth, since I am an old lady, there is nothing that anyone could do
    to harm me. I would know where it came from. My Faith in my Savior
    Jesus Christ has kept me safe for 76 years and I know that He will keep
    me safe from anyone that has ideas of harming me. Anyway, it makes no
    difference. janet

    I would like to add several notes to the story.

    1- For those who can not read Arabic, the sign in the picture reads,”the headscarf martyr”

    That was my second choice for title to my column. I am glad the moderator chose that picture to complement the story.

    2- According to the satellite news from yesterday about this tragic event: the Gestapo police in the city of Dresden raided the home of the victims. Nor further details were available. I did ask however 3 contacts of mine in Germany to update with info on the raid.

    Does it sound to you that the “Nazi Markel” is looking for AL-Qeada connection?

    3- According to German law, the name of a suspect, criminal or even a terrorist as in this case could be withheld until the legal proceeding is over. Ain’t that special!

    Finally, before I sign off I would like to say the fellowing i response to Miss Ruth Bernstein’s remarks:

    a- had you really read my article all the way through, you would have find the answer tor your dumb question. It was in the last paragraph cookie!

    b- To say such a nasty and evil things about the victim who was murdered in cold blood in front of her 3 year old son and whose father is in critical condition in the hospital is despicable and cold hearted. Have you no compassion Ruth! So don’t you and Miriam wonder when I say, you heart is an empty hole. Because you just illustrate that in your comment. May God forbid you of having any children!

    You are very smart girl , you have one advantage over me when it comes to writing. You are a native speaker. The sad part Ruth, you waste and misuse your talent on foolish things.That is what your problem.

    If I were to give you an advice Ruth, so you could be happier in life, here goes:

    1- be generous with praise and cautious with criticism.

    2- above all, do good deeds every day. Anyway you can, just like,( smile to others, be the first to render greeting, remove harmful objects from the road, and help elderly, and the needy).
    3- Good luck! Keep us update, and don’t be a stranger!

    The judeo-christian civilisation has brought unprecedented
    amount of death and destruction on Mankind…
    In the last century alone, more than 100 million people were
    A few unique “gifts”…
    in one field in WWI, over 600 000 soldiers were killed…
    200 000, civilians, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killed, in a few minutes….
    Vietnam, a country of peasant farmers, attacked, over 3 million killed…
    Iraq, up and coming country, its people living in peace with the world, invaded, occupied, country’s infrastructure completely destroyed, over 1.5 million killed, over 3 million refugees, unprecedented suffering ongoing….
    Afghanistan, poor people, live in mud houses,attacked, brutalised…

    Remember, GOD exists,and we all are accountable for what good or evil we did …
    GOD will ensure that justice is done….

    Thanks for these kind words, Madame Butterfly. I am pleased to hear that you don’t think I’m a Mossad agent or sex pervert. You are right. I am not a Mossad agent or sex pervert.

    However, I must tell you, Madame Butterfly, that I AM a creepy guy. Very creepy!…especially around silly, butterfly-brained ladies.

    Yes, I forgive you. You are too charming to hate. Go in peace, little airhead.

    Attack me if you want, Bernstein, but leave Janet out of it. Janet I could get to like, and even perhaps adore from a safe distance, but I doubt if I could ever get to like you. You may well be “stunningly attractive”, as you modestly describe yourself elsewhere, but your character is deficient in the essential virtues.


    Accept my apologies for this embarrassing contretemps. Please continue to post on this site. Montecristo needs to hear from you.

    Ms BurnStain
    I gently disagree with you, if you excuse me, when you said:
    “(I mean, if she’d stayed in Egypt, she wouldn’t have got killed, would she? So why did she have to go to Germany?)”

    I disagree ´cause it would be the same as saying:
    “If God’s Chosen People, the Jews, would have not left the Promised Land of Palestine to go to Europe then they would have NOT gotten drastically Holocausted by Hitler, prophet of the Aryan Nation”
    “So why did they have to go to Europe engage in Usury, poison wells, open Banks and knavishly begin a campaign of trying to be smart while slithering their way into the corridors of kingdoms an governments?”
    The above is not true,
    Because you had it coming anyway for crucifying Jesús El Nazareno, Principe de Paz.
    You cant just go killing Messengers of the Lord and Prophets and the Lords own SON then take off making a short stop in Khazaria then come around over to the middle of where Ex Crusading White people lives then bury your hooked nose under the dirt of Europe LIKE an ostrich thinking you ain´t gonna get it!

    Monte Cristo
    I certainly would not allow this woman’s comments sway me one way or the
    other, I just consider the source and ignore it all. I am at an age where
    I can think for myself.

    You must have hit a nerve for her to be so downright obnoxious.

    No apologies necessary, like I said, I consider the source.

    When I have the time, I will post what I wrote to you. It was quite
    a large email.

    Also when someone is attacked there must be a reason for it. And for anyone’s information, I have not had a nasty email from anyone on this
    list outside of what Ruth wrote. This goes to show you that this list
    is composed of honest and decent people for the most part. janet

    I am not allowed to enter into communication with ANYONE by personal email. This is because I am posting from a foreign country on the shores of the Black Sea, where I am involved in government-related work. The computer I am using, moreover, is not my own computer. So please accept my apologies for not contacting you personally.

    You say you have written me a long email in response to my earlier questions. If you still have this email, please post it on this website if you can. I’d love to read it.

    Best wishes,

    Jalid: I am shocked to hear that women are now dressing so shamelessly in South America. Above all, I am sorry to hear you think this is a laughing matter.

    In the country where I am living now (on the shores of the Black Sea) all the women wear veils in the street. Only their dark eyes are visible. Men look into those dark wells of beauty and fall madly in love! That’s how it should be, Jalid. Mystery, mystery!

    The more women lose their mystery, the more commonplace and undesirable they become. They don’t know this, the poor things! They think men will fall in love with them if they like like whores.

    Can anyone tell me why in Germany, wherever there is a jewish church, it has 24/7 security around it, what the hell is this all about.
