Latest News Syria: German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich

Syria.German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich .jpgGerman Official: Up to 700 Europeans Fighting with Terrorists in Syria 

May 17, 2013

Up to 700 Europeans are fighting with the armed terrorist groups in Syria, mainly as militant Islamists, German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich said, warning that the militants could return as "homegrown terrorists".

The British the Guardian newspaper quoted Friedrich as calling for a controversial new policy that would temporarily prevent those persons from re-entering Europe.

The paper said that in the first disclosures of western intelligence from an EU government about Europeans fighting in Syria, senior German officials said they knew of up to 40 people who had left Germany for fighting since last summer. Most of them had German passports.

While German security services monitor the situation closely, the German interior ministry has banned three Salafist organizations in the past year, the fighters could not be stopped from leaving Germany because it could not be proved that they were going to Syria, the officials said.

The paper added that the interior ministry is worried that the fighters will return to Germany where they could operate as "homegrown terrorists" and is pushing for pan-European action to diminish that risk. The chances of success, however, look limited.

According to the paper, Friedrich intends to raise the issue at a meeting of EU governments next month, he will ask for a two-year re-entry ban to the EU for the suspected Islamists. However, it may be difficult legally to keep them out as most of them carry passports from EU countries, many will often have families in the countries concerned and may have had jobs and entitlements in the EU.

A year-long survey by King's College London of more than 200 jihadist-linked websites and hundreds of Arab and western press reports found last month that up to 600 individuals from 14 countries including the UK, Austria, Spain, Sweden and Germany had taken part in the conflict since it began more than two years ago.

The largest contingent, the study found, came from the UK, with estimates of fighters running between 28 and 134. Based on their populations, the figures for Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland –with about 200 fighters between them.

German NATO propagandist injured in Syria

April 2, 2013

The German ARD correspondent Jörg Armbruster (media bias), known as one of the biggest war promoter from the war in Libya and Syria, was injured in Syria while he tried to produce another biased documentation for the German television.

The correspondent of the German state television media channels, Jörg Armbruster, became famous for his promotion of the war in Libya and his biased stories about the situation and events in Syria. Some also call him a direct mouthpiece of the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other NATO countries – in order to sell the typical NATO propaganda to the German television viewer.
But the German correspondent Armbruster has not only used these channels to sell the false propaganda about Libya and Syria to the German television viewers, he also wrote a book and used all other ways to promote the NATO propaganda and to boost his own career. He is known as a careerist and twaddler for money in the German circle of journalists.
This goes so far that even some colleagues of the same German channel call him a propagandist and, as said, careerist. Both belongs probably together – promote the NATO propaganda and you won`t have problems in your career in Germany.
It is really unfortunate that Jörg Armbruster was injured in Syria but this happens when you stay with armed Jihadists and mercenaries. Of course, the Department of Psychological Warfare of the German state television and the attached corporate and state media are hypocritical whining about the wounded and great German correspondent Armbruster. The whining, mixed with propaganda, on the websites of several German media agencies like ARD and ZDF is unbearable.
The German correspondent and war promoter Jörg Armbruster was and is always one of the leading “embedded” war propagandists. Not only in Syria and Libya, but also in Egypt. Armbruster was always on the side of the aggressors. One good example of his lies is the moment when Armbruster blamed the troops of the former Libyan leader Gaddafi (Qaddafi) for a massacre, although the armed terrorists and Islamists of NATO were guilty for this massacre in Libya. But that´s the way Armbruster worked and works – as long as he was and is able to serve the NATO propaganda.

This correspondent from Germany is also one of these so-called journalists who is a huge fan of the Muslim Brotherhood. When he stayed in the Egyptian capital Cairo, he was sometimes seen with some figures of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood having dinner.
The Muslim Brotherhood, corrupt to the bones and always trying to misuse Islam for political goals, are currently considered as an organisation which probably should be forbidden by the Egyptian Supreme Judge. In the Emirates, the Muslim Brotherhood is on trial for conspiracy. In Syria? The Muslim Brotherhood is guilty for many crimes already. And so on. There are no “moderate Islamists”. This new name for the heads of the rotten Muslim Brotherhood is just an invention by such biased correspondents like the German Jörg Armbruster.
He was treated in Turkey and then flown back to Germany after he was injured in crossfire while he tried to make another propaganda-documentary about the “Arab Spring” – including Syria, of course.
Some might wonder who has actually issued him the visa for Syria and how great must the indoctrination be when a pensioner still risks his life for NATO propaganda? But the second question might be easy to answer; as said, he has always been a careerist who stops at nothing. The first question? The usual problems in and about Syria.
