Germany knife attacker kills man in Grafing

One man has been killed and three others wounded by a knife-wielding man near Munich, with police investigating a possible Islamist connection.

The man attacked four commuters shortly before 05:00 (03:00 GMT) on Tuesday at Grafing station. One of the victims died of his wounds in hospital.

A 27-year-old German man was eventually overpowered by police and arrested.

Some witnesses said he shouted "Allahu akbar" ("God is great" in Arabic) but the motive for the attack is unclear.

An Upper Bavaria police spokesperson said that a "political motive" had certainly not been ruled out. 

Police spokesman Karl-Heinz Segerer told German television that the man "expressed political motivations" during the attack.

They gave no details, saying it is a matter for the investigation.

He identified the suspect as a 27-year-old German national who does not live in Bavaria.


Footage from the scene showed bloody footprints on a train and the station platform in Grafing, a Bavarian town 40km (25 miles) east of Munich.

The police spokesman said one of the victims had been stabbed on the train and others at the station or outside the building.

The mayor of Grafing, Angelika Obermayr, expressed shock at the attack.

"The idea that people get on an S-Bahn train on a beautiful morning or do their paper round and then become victims of a maniac is terrible," she was quoted as saying.

One of the platforms at Grafing station has been cordoned off and commuter trains have been hit by delays.

Heathrow offers concessions in runway fight

Heathrow offers concessions in fight to build third runway


    11 May 2016

  • From the section Business

                    The independent Davies Commission has recommended expanding Heathrow, but with severe environmental restrictions


Heathrow Airport has promised to reduce night flights and curb both noise and pollution if it is allowed to build a new, third runway.

The pledge comes ahead of a government decision expected this summer on whether to expand Heathrow or Gatwick.

Gatwick Airport said it remained the "only expansion plan that could deliver for the UK".

Last year, the Davies Commission recommended expanding Heathrow, but with strict environmental restrictions.

The inquiry led by Sir Howard Davies recommended a ban on night flights, limits to overall noise and guarantees that local pollution would not get worse.

'Cleaner, quieter Heathrow'

John Holland-Kaye, chief executive at Heathrow Airport Holdings said the airport was going beyond the recommendations of the Davies Commission and he was confident they can create a "cleaner, quieter Heathrow delivering more for the UK economy and that clears the way for the prime minister to make the right choice to expand Heathrow and deliver a stronger economy".

But opponents distrust its assurances, saying the airport's owners previously ruled out a new runway in exchange for building Terminal 5.

Analysis by BBC transport correspondent Richard Westcott:

Heathrow's just played its ace.


The airport's gone further than many people expected in this latest bid to convince MPs, the government, and locals, that it should have a third runway.

In the past, Conservative Zac Goldsmith has said he'd resign as an MP if ministers went with Heathrow. Other cabinet members are known to oppose the scheme. It's not clear yet whether these concessions are enough to sway any of their opinions.

Then there's the locals, who always tell me that Heathrow has a habit of breaking promises.

Twenty years ago the airport vowed it would permanently rule out a third runway if only it could build terminal five.

That vow soon went out of the window.

Heathrow said it will allow a longer quiet period overnight, with flights not allowed to land between 11pm and 5:30am, from their current 11.30pm finish and 4.30am start.

The Davies Commission recommended there should be no night flights between 11.30pm to 6am.

John Stewart, Chair of the anti-noise group HACAN ClearSkies, accepted Heathrow was offering a concession on nights flights but said people will be disappointed that a ban will not be extended to 6.00am.

He also questioned whether Heathrow was in a position to reduce air pollution.

"The bigger problem with air pollution is most of it comes from traffic and it's out of Heathrow's control to deal with air pollution from traffic. They can't really guarantee that air pollution levels can be brought down to EU legal limits," he added.

Mr Holland-Kaye said: " We have had no more cars on the road over the last 25 years even though Heathrow has almost doubled in the last 25 years and that is because we've invested in better road connections, better bus services and better rail services and that is part of our plan.

"We can make sure Heathrow expands within EU air quality limits."

Mr Holland-Kaye blamed diesel vehicles for air pollution and said he was writing to the new London Mayor, Sadiq Khan to request that he extended the ultra-low emission zone to the M25.

He said they were working to make Heathrow an ultra-low omissions zone and by 2025 aimed to have only electric fleet vehicles on site.

Stewart Wingate, chief executive of Gatwick Airport, described Wednesday's announcement by Heathrow's owners as a "desperate last throw from a project that has repeatedly failed".

He said Heathrow Airport's air quality plans failed "the most basic credibility test" and they could not promise traffic wouldn't increase with a third runway.

"An expanded Heathrow will newly impact hundreds of thousands of people currently not affected by aircraft noise - an expanded Gatwick would impact less than 3% of this number," he added.

The Commons' Transport Select Committee published a report last week which urged ministers to set out a clear timetable for airport expansion.

Heathrow's proposed plans:

The plan involves building a new 3,500m runway about two miles north of the two runways Heathrow already has at an estimated cost of £18.6bn.

UK 'spike in short-term migration'

ONS suggests UK has had spike in short-term migration


    12 May 2016

                    Campaigners say official figures don't show the full impact of migration on the UK economy


A big gap between official immigration figures and the number of EU migrants registering for National Insurance numbers has been put down to an increase in short-term immigration.

An analysis by the Office for National Statistics suggests large numbers of people came to the UK for a short period of time over the past two years.

They were not picked up by the official immigration statistics.

These only measure people who say they will be in the UK for a year or more.

Those campaigning to leave the EU argue official figures on inward migration from the EU vastly underestimate the true numbers.

Voters will decide on 23 June whether the UK should remain in the EU or leave, with immigration a key battleground in the campaign.

Those campaigning to leave the EU argue the UK cannot control levels of migration from Europe - which have risen sharply in the past decade - while remaining a member and abiding by the EU's rules on the free movement of people.









This issue covers immigration and free movement within Europe.


        Why this issue matters


            What the leave and remain sides are saying about immigration in the #EUref campaign       




The debate

  • Total net migration to the UK is running at over 300,000 a year despite the government’s target of cutting it to under 100,000

  • Migration from the EU accounts for just under half the total

  • EU citizens have the right to live and work in any member state





  • It is impossible to control immigration as a member of the EU

  • Public services are under strain because of the number of migrants

  • High immigration has driven down wages for British workers

  • The official figures underestimate the true level of migration





  • Immigrants, especially those from the EU, pay more in taxes than they take out

  • Cameron's EU deal means in-work benefits for new EU migrant workers will be limited for the first four years

  • Outside the EU the UK would still have to accept free movement to gain full access to the single market

  • Immigration is good for the economy

But Remain supporters say the UK, which is not a member of the passport-free Schengen area, does have controls in place and curbs on future in-work benefits for EU migrants negotiated by David Cameron will reduce the "pull factors" attracting people to the UK.


MPs have been pushing for information about the number of EU nationals who have paid income tax and NI and received benefits over the past year to be published, as well as information about the nationalities of new NI applicants over the past four years. 

They say details of how many NI numbers - which are issued to those entitled to study or work to help pay tax and benefits - are being actively used will show the current impact of EU migration on the UK economy and labour market. 

National Insurance numbers

Almost every adult resident in the UK is given a unique code, made up of letters and numbers, that they keep for life.  People born in Britain are allocated a National Insurance shortly before their 16th birthday.

It is meant to ensure tax and National Insurance contributions are properly recorded against their name. It also enables access to the social security system.

Everyone coming to the UK to work must apply for a National Insurance number.

The Office for National Statistics analysis examines available data on the difference between the registration of National Insurance numbers to adult overseas nationals, and estimates of long-term international migration derived from its International Passenger Survey.

The latest ONS figures suggest that 257,000 EU migrants came to the UK between September 2014 and September 2015.

These figures are based on face-to-face surveys of passengers arriving in the UK at air and sea ports and have been criticised for not being accurate enough.




But other figures for the same period show 630,000 National Insurance numbers were allocated to EU nationals, up 7% on the year before. Of these, 209,000 were from Bulgaria and Romania.

The ONS has previously said its figures include migrants only in the UK for a short period and are not a "direct measure" of when they arrived in the UK, pointing out many Bulgarians and Romanians may have been living and working on a self-employed basis for several years.

Economist Jonathan Portes - who first requested the information - said it would show how many EU nationals getting NI numbers in the past four years had remained and what economic contribution they made vis-a-vis the cost to the taxpayer.

Ministers have sought to explain the discrepancy between the ONS and the NI figures by arguing many workers applying for National Insurance numbers are only in the UK for short-term work. According to the British Labour Force Survey, there are now two million EU nationals in the UK workforce, a sharp rise on four years ago.

The Conservatives have consistently missed their target of reducing net migration - the difference between the number of people leaving and arriving - in the UK to below 100,000. The latest figure, for the year to September, was 323,000.

Top Hezbollah commander killed in Syria

Hezbollah commander Mustafa Amine Badreddine killed


    13 May 2016

The man believed to be Hezbollah's most senior military commander in Syria's war has been killed in Damascus.

Mustafa Amine Badreddine died in a large explosion near Damascus airport, the Lebanon-based militant group said in a statement on its al-Manar website.

Badreddine is charged with leading the assassination of former Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri in Beirut in 2005.

Hezbollah supports Syria's President Bashar al-Assad and has sent thousands of fighters into Syria.

The US treasury, which imposed sanctions on Badreddine last July, said at the time he was "responsible for Hezbollah's military operations in Syria since 2011, including the movement of Hezbollah fighters from Lebanon to Syria, in support of the Syrian regime".

Who stands accused of Hariri killing?

Lebanon's al-Mayadeen TV had earlier said that Badreddine, 55, died in an Israeli air strike. Israel has not commented on the claim.


Announcing Badreddine's death, Hezbollah said in an initial statement: "He took part in most of the operations of the Islamic Resistance since 1982," referring to the group's military wing.

The second statement, on al-Manar's website, said: "The investigation will work on determining the nature of the explosion and its causes and whether it was a result of an air, missile or artillery attack.

"We will announce further results of the investigations soon."

Al-Manar said he would be buried in Beirut on Friday afternoon.

Born in 1961, he is believed to have been a senior figure in Hezbollah's military wing.

He was a cousin and brother-in-law of Imad Mughniyeh, who was the military wing's chief until his assassination by car bomb in Damascus in 2008.

According to one report, a Hezbollah member interrogated by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), described Badreddine as "more dangerous" than Mughniyeh, who was "his teacher in terrorism".

They are alleged to have worked together on the October 1983 bombing of the US Marine Corps barracks in Beirut that killed 241 personnel.

Badreddine is reported to have sat on Hezbollah's Shura Council and served as an adviser to the group's overall leader Hassan Nasrallah.

During the Syrian war, Hezbollah and its ally Iran have played a prominent part in supporting the Syrian government.

The group has accused Israel of targeting a number of its fighters in air strikes in Syria.

They include Badreddine's nephew Jihad Mughniyeh in January 2015, and senior official Samir Qantar, who was once imprisoned over a bomb attack in Israel, in December last year.

Israel has never commented on whether it was involved in the air strikes.

Badreddine is being tried in absentia by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, in The Hague, over the killing of Mr Hariri.

He was indicted on four charges and was said by the tribunal to be "the overall controller of the operation" to kill Mr Hariri.

Three other Hezbollah members also stand accused of their role in the assassination.

The indictment also details Badreddine's role in bombings in Kuwait in 1983, that targeted the French and US embassies and other facilities, and killed six people.

He was sentenced to death over the attacks, but later escaped from prison.

  • Meaning "The Party of God", it is a Shia Islamist political, military and social organisation that wields considerable power in Lebanon, after taking part in elections for the first time in 1992

  • It emerged with the help of Iran during the Israeli occupation of Lebanon in the early 1980s

  • Its ideological roots stretch back to the Shia Islamic revival in Lebanon in the 1960s and '70s

  • Hezbollah announced its establishment in 1985 by calling for the "obliteration" of Israel, which it said was occupying Muslim lands

  • In 2006, it launched a cross-border attack on Israel, which retaliated with strikes on Hezbollah strongholds during a 34-day war

  • In early 2016, Saudi Arabia led Gulf countries and the Arab League to declare it a terrorist group, accusing it of "hostile acts"

EU Referendum: Boris Johnson compares EU's aims to Hitler's


    15 May 2016

  • From the section EU Referendum



                Boris JohnsonImage copyright

Boris Johnson has compared the EU's aims to Hitler's, saying both involved the intention to unify Europe under a single "authority".

The pro-Brexit Tory MP said both the Nazi leader and Napoleon had failed at unification and the EU was "an attempt to do this by different methods".

Labour MP Yvette Cooper, from the Remain campaign, accused the ex-London Mayor of playing "nasty, nasty games".

Meanwhile, UKIP leader Nigel Farage has backed Mr Johnson to be the next PM.

Mr Farage told the Mail on Sunday he was a "Boris fan" and said he was backing the former mayor of London to succeed David Cameron, if the prime minister resigned following the EU referendum.

The referendum takes place on 23 June, when voters in the UK will be asked whether they want the country to stay in or leave the European Union.

'Democratic void'

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Johnson said European history had seen repeated attempts to rediscover the "golden age of peace and prosperity under the Romans".

"Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods," he said.


"But fundamentally what is lacking is the eternal problem, which is that there is no underlying loyalty to the idea of Europe.

"There is no single authority that anybody respects or understands. That is causing this massive democratic void."

Former Labour minister Ms Cooper accused Mr Johnson of having a "shameful lack of judgement" and a willingness to play "the most divisive, cynical politics".

She added: "He should not try to play political games with the darkest and most serious chapter of Europe's history. The EU has played a critical role keeping peace in Europe ever since."

Asked on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show about her views on the referendum campaign, Tory MP and Vote Leave campaigner Andrea Leadsom said Bank of England governor Mark Carney had made "an incredibly dangerous intervention" three days ago.

She said his comments that a vote to leave could hit the UK economy were "purely speculative". "They [the Bank] are not there to promote financial instability and that is what they have done," she said.


Also on Marr, Northern Ireland First Minister Arlene Foster, who backs Leave, said Mr Carney's remarks were "rather surprising".

She also rejected suggestions that leaving the EU could harm relations with the Republic of Ireland or damage the peace process.

"I'm not worried at all, because the peace process is not built on the European Union," she said, adding that it had been "disappointing" to see former Foreign Secretary William Hague suggest there could be a negative impact. 

Ms Foster said leaving the EU would free Britain and Northern Ireland from the bloc's "overreaching bureaucracy".

Campaigning in Oxfordshire on Saturday, Mr Cameron warned that leaving the EU would have a "devastating impact" on funding for infrastructure projects.

With less than six weeks to go until the vote, polls have put the Remain and Leave campaigns at roughly 50-50.

Of course Boris Johnson is correct.
The methodology behind the EU institution is closely modeled on Adolph Hitler's Nazi party. That's hardly surprising seeing that the same demonic spirit is at work.

In the book of Daniel, the dream of Nebuchadnezzar revealed the order of things from that time forward to the very end. In the dream, Babylon was the head of Gold. Next comes the shoulders and arms of silver which represents the Medes and Persians who defeated Babylon. Next comes the belly and thighs of bronze which represents the Greeks who defeated the Persians. Next comes the legs of iron which represents Rome which defeated the Greeks.
The Roman Empire in time devolves into ten toes which represents the ten kingdoms of the world that Christ destroys at his coming.

Roman power has waxed and waned as it struggled to control the whole of Europe. It manifested itself in various modes from the Catholic Church, the Holy Roman Empire under Charlemagne to Napoleon and Hitler, each and every one of the with the same objective as they served the spirit of Babylon.

The New World Order leaders have already released their plans for the ten final kingdoms of the world, for which the United States of Europe is the first kingdom or region.

Voting to leave the EU is essential for the spiritual freedom of Great Britain, it means "coming out of Babylon". The coming United States of Europe, which most certainly will happen soon, is their next step in the New World Order's creation of the final one world antichrist government.

Any christian voting to stay under the dominion of the EU is making a spiritual statement before God that they favour the spirit of antichrist/Babylon over Christ.

What does the lord say about Babylon?
Revelation18v4? ?Come out of her, my people,?
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;

For those who haven't got a grip on the EU yet, it is they who claim they are rebuilding Babylon. It doesn't take a skilled theologian or historian to gather that fact, their own publications make it clear that's their intention.

"I would not have you ignorant brethren............."
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

The demonic spirit behind the EU is subtle. It works on human ideals but excludes God and misrepresents God 100% It seeks unity without Christ.
Love, and kindness are the fruits of Gods Spirits and are genuine. Only from God. It does not come from man. These human ideals are on the surface and superficial used by demonic forces and eventually become like ravenous wolves. Believe me. It will become apparent.

I know we all want things cosy but we need to choose God and not leave Him out. True love comes from Him and not as the modern day of Babel presents.
