Afghan Migrant Identified As Knife Attacker At German Anti-Islamization Rally

Sulaiman A., a 25-year-old Afghan migrant, has been identified as the individual responsible for attacking multiple people at an anti-Islamization rally in Mannheim, Germany, on Friday. The rally, organized by the Citizens’ Movement Pax Europa (BpE), a counter-jihad group, was aimed at protesting against Islamist extremism.

A video of the attack shows the Afghan national, a resident of Hesse, assaulting people at the rally. Multiple individuals attempted to restrain the attacker, including a police officer who appeared to be stabbed in the neck while trying to subdue the suspect. A second police officer then shot the attacker, wounding him.

German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser has suggested that the attack could be Islamist-motivated, stating, “If the investigations reveal an Islamist motive, this would be a further confirmation of the great danger posed by Islamist acts of violence.”

The incident has highlighted the ongoing issue of migrant-related crime in Germany. Recent data from the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) revealed that foreign migrants, despite accounting for only 14.6% of the country’s population, were implicated in 58.5% of all violent crimes in the country.

The ongoing crisis in Europe is beginning to evolve as newcomers begin to see their new residences as their new homes, and creating conditions that perhaps better reflect their old homes. As the crisis continues, more and more are being hurried in to a continent that seems to be marching toward disaster in domestic and foreign policy blunders that will reverberate for generations to come.
