    Revellers from across the world braved the rain as they made their way to the annual Oktoberfest in Munich for the start of the famous German event. The world's most famous beer festival, which kicked off today and runs until October 3, is expected to welcome more than six million people to the Bavarian capital over course of the event. Both locals and tourists alike were greeted with downpours as they made their way to the Theresienwiese, an open space in the Munich which is used to host Oktoberfest, but partygoers soon seemed to perk up as the event officially...

    SIERRA VISTA — Oompah-pah bands, brats and beer gave Sierra Vista a taste of Bavaria Friday and Saturday during the 22nd annual Oktoberfest. As the Sierra Vista Community Band filled the beer garden with such festive German favorites as the Chicken Dance, Beer Barrell Polka, Happy Wanderer and Hamburger Waltz on Friday, parents and youngsters danced along. Manuel Garcia and his 7-year-old granddaughter were particularly fond of the Chicken Dance. “I lived in Heidelberg for three years and really enjoyed Oktoberfest celebrations while I was there,” he said. “I’m sure my Chicken Dance could use a little work, but my...

Officers were called to Munich Unterföhring S-Bahn station this morning to intervene in a fight on the station platform, in which at least one party was wielding a knife, reports Welt. Officers got involved in the scuffle and an attacker attempted to push one member of the police from the platform onto the railway tracks. While wrestling on the ground, a 37-year-old male — reported to...

    A 12 foot wall is being built in Munich to separate a housing estate from a new migrant centre that will house 160 unaccompanied minors. Locals living in the Neuperlach Süd housing development in Munich, less than 100 metres from the site at which young migrants will be staying, went to court to get the wall built. Germans living in the area fear bad behaviour among the newcomers, and concern over likely levels of noise when they arrive, will lower the value of their properties if the migrant centre remains for an extended length of time, reports Der Spiegel. The...

    The Muslim Brotherhood's Conquest of Europe by Lorenzo Vidino Middle East Quarterly Winter 2005 Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood (Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) has profoundly influenced the political life of the Middle East. Its motto is telling: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."[1] While the Brotherhood's radical ideas have shaped the beliefs of generations of Islamists, over the past two decades, it has lost some of its power and appeal in the Middle East, crushed by...

    Integration into the job market for migrants has become a major ongoing task for the German government but in one town migrants are refusing to work entirely. One of the major issues of the migrant crisis is Germany and elsewhere has been the economic impact the massive wave of migrants will have in Europe. While some experts initially were optimistic about a potential vast new source of skilled labour, most economists have come to the conclusion that the migrants who have arrived are for the most part unskilled and poorly educated. Yet in own Saxon town, they have moved...

    Israel's Defense Ministry on Friday responded to U.S. President Barack Obama's claims from a day earlier that the nuclear deal signed between Iran and the West had been successful in improving the security situation in the Middle East, and that even Israel acknowledges this fact. "The Israeli defense establishment believes that agreements have value only if they are based on the existing realities, and have no value if the facts on the ground are completely opposite of those upon which the agreement rests," the statement read. "The Munich Agreement did not prevent the Second World War and the Holocaust, precisely...

    The perpetrators of two attacks in Germany claimed by the ISIS terror group were given advice on the separate assaults by members of the jihadist organization, German media reports. Without citing its sources, German weekly Der Spiegel said the two men exchanged messages with individuals using different phone numbers, including some that were registered in Saudi Arabia. The Afghan teenager who in July went on an axe rampage on a train, wounding four tourists from Hong Kong and a German passer-by, had reportedly discussed how he would carry out the attack with his ISIS contacts.

    According to research by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, the Munich gunman was proud to have been born on the same day as Hitler and hated Turks and Arabs. The 18-year-old gunman who killed nine people before killing himself in Munich on Friday, was proud to be born on April 20th 1998 and thus share a birthday with Adolf Hitler, the FAZ has been told by people close to the investigation. David Sonboly, who was born to Iranian parents in Munich, was allegedly proud to be German and Iranian, which he considered to make him “Aryan,” people who knew him told...

    Sonboly is no Iranian. He is Syrian. His Facebook page showed that he is pro Turkey’s Islamists. That, plus he had a record with the Interpol and was being watched. He is also not a teenager as they show us, but an adult as videos showed. What the reader should conclude after reading is this: why is the eye witnesses account (which is substantiated by material evidence) contradicts media reports

    They initially introduced his name as a western name “David S”. Then his name changed to Ali David Sonboly (which sounds western) when his real name is Ali Daud Sonboly/Sunbuli which is an Arabic name (better pronounced Sunbuli) and has an exclusively Arabic meaning: ‘from the wheat kernel’. Sonboly is no Iranian. He is Syrian. His Facebook page showed that he is pro Turkey’s Islamists. That, plus he had a record with the Interpol and was being watched.

    An Afghan teenager was arrested on Sunday in Germany on suspicion that he was connected to Friday’s mass attack in Munich, police said. The 16-year-old male may have known about the plans of the gunman, who killed nine people, but the teen did not tell authorities, officials said. The teen is also suspected of having played a role in a Facebook post that invited the public to a location near where the deadly shooting later took place, Reuters reported.

    Republican White House nominee Donald Trump has said that France, Germany and other nations hit by recent terror attacks had only themselves to blame “because they allowed people to come into their territory.” Trump was asked in an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to expand on his proposal to suspend immigration from what he calls countries “compromised by terrorism” until vetting mechanisms are in place. “I’m going to be coming out over the next few weeks with a number of the places,” said Trump according to an excerpt of the interview. “We have problems in Germany, and...

    Germany’s coalition government has promised to seek whatever legal means necessary to prevent another mass shooting. But if the weapon was acquired illegally, stricter controls on gun purchases may not be the answer. In the wake of the shooting in Munich that left nine people and the gunman dead, German leaders on Sunday were already preparing talks on stricter gun control. Both ruling parties, the center-right Christian Democrats (CDU) of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), agreed that more stringent laws were necessary to prevent copycat attacks. […] Police have confirmed that the killer did not have...
