70 Per Cent of Berlin New Year’s Eve Rioters Have Migrant Background

Authorities have confirmed that 70 per cent of those arrested for riots in Berlin on New Year’s Eve, during which firefighters and ambulance workers were attacked, have a migration background.

As part of what has now become virtually an annual occurrence, mobs of migrant youths caused bedlam, throwing fireworks at people and setting fire to hundreds of vehicles in what eyewitnesses described as scenes akin to a war zone.

Authorities recorded 3,943 incidents across the city, with 15 firefighters and 18 police officers suffering injuries.

Bild newspaper reported that the unrest was “particularly bad attacks in the hotspot neighborhoods of Kreuzberg and Neukölln with a high proportion of migrants.”

One video showed a group of migrants throwing bricks into an open ambulance at people inside.

Sexual harassment of women also appears to have been a part of the “celebrations,” with one video showing a young male migrant telling a reporter, “We already f**ked all the girls and the police can lick our balls.”

Fires were also started in apartment blocks, while other clips show migrants firing what appear to be starter pistols into the air.

As was overwhelmingly obvious from the video clips, a clear majority of the culprits were migrants.

According to Berlin police, out of the 145 arrests made, 100 were of men from a migration background, with 27 of them coming from Afghanistan and 21 from Syria.

“All suspects, the majority of whom were men, have now been released following the completion of required police measures,” reports Remix News.

However, despite a common theme in the identity of the culprits, Germany’s Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faesar refused to draw any attention to it, instead merely tweeting that the perpetrators should be “punished to the full extent of the law.”

Meanwhile, authorities appear to believe that merely banning the sale of fireworks to individuals will fix the problem.

Good luck with that.

Jens Spahn, the deputy leader of the CDU parliamentary group, was more candid, remarking that “unregulated migration, failed integration, and a lack of respect for the state” is to blame for the “unspeakable” acts of violence that took place on the night.

As we previously highlighted, former German Chancellor Angela Merkel suggested her 2015 decision to allow a million migrants to enter the country was a success.

The reality ordinary Germans continue to experience in major cities suggests otherwise.
