“Munich: IS terrorist convicted of 26 attempted murders,” translated from “München: IS-Terrorist wegen 26 Mordversuchen verurteilt,” by Johannes Daniels, haOlam.de, July 24, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):

Few mainstream media are reporting on Friday’s verdict by the Munich Higher Regional Court against IS terrorist Muharrem D., who committed a series of attacks in Waldkraiburg, Upper Bavaria, in 2020, and approved the deaths of at least 26 people.

However, the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung and some Turkish media did report on this.

The indictment against Muharrem D., who is of Kurdish-Turkish origin, was extraordinarily extensive – but according to a familiar pattern: attempted multiple murder, aggravated arson, violations of the explosives law and the preparation of a serious act endangering the state. As a “precautionary measure,” the Munich public prosecutor’s office found D. to have a “significantly diminished responsibility” and demanded that the alleged perpetrator be placed in a psychiatric hospital because of his schizophrenia, at the German taxpayer’s expense.

Perpetrator of Turkish origin acted out of “hatred of Turks”

The now 27-year-old Kurdish-Turkish Muharrem D. admitted to being responsible for the series of attacks in Waldkraiburg last year which attracted attention in many nationwide media. In them, initially a “right-wing” background of xenophobia was generally implied at first, such as in the left-wing extremist “taz.”

Among other things, the self-proclaimed IS terrorist set fire to a Turkish vegetable shop and put 26 people in real danger for their lives. They could only save themselves by warnings from neighbors in the middle of the night.

Muharrem D. also committed attacks on a hairdressing salon, a kebab stand, a pizzeria and the “Sultan Ahmed Mosque” in Waldkraiburg. Because the door wouldn’t open there, he threw his incendiary device into a paper garbage can right next to the Imam’s home, where the man slept with his family. Solely because the flames went out, nothing worse happened. The prosecution interpreted this as an attempted murder of the family.

Muharrem planned many more acts and murders

The rapid arrest of D. on May 8, 2020 could have prevented further acts. When the police intervened, he had pipe bombs and kilos of explosives with him, which he had previously stored for a long time in his car in an underground car park in Garching an der Alz. In court, the defendant admitted that he had planned very different acts: attacks on several mosques of the Islamic Association Ditib, on the Turkish Consulate General in Munich and the Ditib Central Mosque in Cologne.

According to the indictment, since 2017 D. had – surprise! – “seemingly out of nowhere” radicalised himself. He listened to Salafist sermons on the Internet and quickly became a supporter of the Islamic State terrorist organization, like so many “asylum seekers” that the Merkel regime has imported into the German social systems from all archaic cultures in the world since 2015. Muharrem developed an incomprehensible hatred of Turks, although he himself is of Turkish descent.

“The foundation on which schizophrenia has saddled up”

The accused is schizophrenic, according to the court. “Without the schizophrenia, the attacks carried out by the defendant in Waldkraiburg are inconceivable,” said the presiding judge. But they are “just as inconceivable without the Islamist-jihadist ideology.” This is “the foundation on which schizophrenia was based.” Muharrem D. has had a schizophrenic illness since 2019.

In the grounds of the judgment, the judge went into detail on the “childhood and career” of the prospective mass murderer: Muharrem D. grew up in Garching. From his idyllic surroundings in Upper Bavaria, he was always treated politely and perceived as reserved. He grew up in a well-integrated, hardly religious family. In 2013 at the latest, however, he turned to Salafism. At first he only sympathized with IS ideologies, but since the Merkel year of 2015/16, he has also identified with it. Since then, he has seen himself as a staunch IS fighter. Until 2018, he had radicalized himself exclusively via the Internet. In autumn 2018, he moved to Munich for a few months to live in the “Al-Salam Mosque,” a mosque that Richter said was a Salafist mosque. Over the years, according to the judge, Muharrem D. then developed “a seemingly bizarre private ideology” – with a hatred of all people of Turkish origin. He wanted to bring about “war-like conditions.”

Radical Islamic Instagram account: Videos of executions

The Munich Higher Regional Court analyzed in particular the Instagram account of the assassin. The expert confirmed that it was “clearly Islamist.” Muharrem D. had posted videos of executions. He had also regularly transferred money to the family of an IS fighter in Turkey. Since 2018, he had repeatedly been in contact with well-known Salafists in Munich.

Many of the Waldkraiburg tenants who were trapped by the fire at night still suffer from psychological problems today. One affected person says that for months he lay in bed thinking he smelled smoke and that there was a fire. Apart from the psychological problems, there were also organizational problems for the victims: 27 people had to leave their homes after the fire – for months. Some were accommodated in a municipal emergency shelter. Helga Rittersporn, who was affected, said she had lived for ten months, partly with her daughters, partly in a hotel. Only then did the property management allow her to return to her flat. Rittersporn tells of a five-year-old neighbour’s child: “When she sees me, she always says: Helga, why was that man so bad, why did that man do that?”

“He always had a smile on his face”

In an interview, the public broadcaster Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation (BR), which is financed by one billion euros, lets the parents and the football coach of the terrorist have their say in a “conciliatory” manner:

“At a large table with pastries and coffee, Muharrem D.’s father slaps his hands in front of his face. ‘I’m totally exhausted,’ he says. For him and his wife, drugs are the reason why their son Muharrem allegedly committed the offences […] They openly show their feelings to the reporters of the BR political magazine Kontrovers. ‘It’s really hard,’ says the father, who keeps crying. The mother tries to remain objective. Muharrem’s former football coach is also at the table. He says Muharrem was a very nice boy: ‘He always had a smile on his face and took part in every nonsense. But he never really became abusive.’

The father can still remember the moment when he discovered his son in a Munich mosque in Sendling. ‘I said to him: Muharrem, it doesn’t work like that. Sister and mum are outside. Come, let’s talk to each other.’ But his son Muharrem had not wanted to come along.”

The imam of the mosque did not want to talk about Muharrem D.. However, he confirmed that he had been summoned as a witness in the trial. Muharrem D. testified in court that at the time of the attacks he was no longer in control of himself. His tax-funded lawyer, Dr Christian Gerber, assumed that his responsibility was severely diminished:

“Shortly after his arrest, there were already clear signs of psychosis. That has improved, but you can see from his statements and contradictions that he is ill and needs to be treated.”

Hence, no doubt, the lenient sentence against the “very nice boy” Muharrem: Nine and a half years in psychological forensic treatment and Upper Bavarian dance therapy.
