German bomb plot; the truth

The German train bombs that didn't go off and resulted in the arrest of some Lebanese in Germany? Who is really behind it? Of course, the Jooosssss!
Abdulwahab also thinks such attacks are sheer madness. "It only harms people like us who live here," he says. But even he -- whose views are quite moderate and who even had a Jewish girlfriend once -- can't help claiming you'll never get the whole truth from the Western media because "their reporting is just too pro-Jewish." Many such anti-Semitic remarks -- and worse -- can be heard around Hamburg's central station.

Or on television. Just a few days ago, a 17-year-old Kurd from Bonn espoused the following theory on SPIEGEL TV: "What happened first," he said, talking about the recent conflict in Lebanon, "was that the Jews raped a child, or something like that." Later he claimed to have learned from a credible source that Jews once systematically shot six-year-olds in a kindergarten. "They let the teacher live so she would become mentally ill," the young man said.
...and Protestant Crusaders, I guess (who knew!).
"It's all a Protestant crusade," the man explains. "All of northern Germany is Protestant, isn't it? And so is President Bush." Then the man launches into a melange of confusing arguments and historical facts. The bubonic plague, Martin Luther and former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl all make a cameo. It's all connected somehow, the man is sure of it.

The young Saudi Arabian's views may make little sense from a Western point of view, but you can meet him and talk to him at a street corner in the middle of Hamburg, right by the central station. Foreigners from all over the world live in this neighborhood, called St. Georg, and a large number of them are Muslim. Several mosques have been built in the neighborhood. Many nearby stores carry no alcohol -- but they do have electronic memory aides for Koran students on offer.
These are the "New Europeans." Like I said back 18 months ago, show your kids Europe; while it is still here.
