Motivation for the Assassin of Munich Remains Unclear

It would have had to be clear from the beginning. The German-Iranian assassin of Munich would not commit himself to any of the well known Sunni terror organizations like the IS, Al Kaida or Al Nusra because all these are Sunni terror organizations while he himself was a Shiite once coming from Iran. However it can not be said that either Sunnites or Shiites would be more radical while proponents of both groups keep fighting and killing each other in the Near East. In deed the location of the attack, a shopping mall in Munich as well as hints to the police from “wannabe-terrorists” that three armed men were shooting in the innermost of the town would at first have allowed the conclusion that this was an Islamist terror attack.

Now let us come back to the crime of Munich. It was not an assassination by a right wing extremer like Breivik. Mere hate towards his school fellows who have mobbed him like at the assassination of Winnenden does also appear very unlikely. If so he would have chosen to commit the shooting rampage at his school while he would not have invested much time and effort in cracking the Facebook account of a foreign contemporary in order to lure random people of his age to the location where he planned his assassination. Even the type of his psychic disease, a depression with anxiety disorder, does not allow any direct conclusion about his motivation for this crazed action.

In the past and specifically under prime minister David Cameron Great Britain has rendered an exemplary service in climate protection which has contributed decisively to the formation of the “Green Growth Group” at the climate conference of Paris. However now under Theresa May the British government is currently making an U-turn against climate protection. Even worse the country is alleviated by all GHG reduction commitments which do merely apply to the EU as a whole. Theresa May apparantly seeks to make use of this fact shamelessly …

USA: The so called amendment of Rule 41 would legalize search warrants against uninvolved people as well as it would massively expand government spying by US-services all over the world. Almost anyone could be attacked: users of the Tor network, those who run a Tor node, people using a VPN, people who do not want location tracking on their smart phone because of advertisements or individual who simply want to retrieve web search results from other countries. The worst are search warrants against people just because they have already been infected by malware of criminals or some other government.
