If there was a Terrorist of the Year award, then Anis Amri would win it:
Suspected Berlin attacker Anis Amri had torched a migrant camp, was radicalised in Italy, had known connections with German Salafists, and was even on the U.S. ‘no-fly’ list for communicating with Islamic State – but was repeatedly set free by European authorities.
Anis Amri, the Tunisian migrant who is the subject of a manhunt on suspicion of driving a truck through a Christmas market in Berlin, Germany, killing 12 and injuring 48, was well-known to German and Italian authorities and was under investigation in Germany on suspicion of “preparing a serious crime endangering national safety”.
This part is gold:
Germany had rejected Amri’s asylum request, but, again, was not able to deport him because there were delays in Tunisia confirming his identity and granting him a passport – which was finally issued by Tunisia on Wednesday the 21st of December.
This monster had:
- burned down a migrant camp.
- spent four years in an Italian prison.
- communicated with ISIS!
- his asylum request denied.
Yet, he roamed freely in Germany. He planned and executed his scheme and now a dozen innocents are dead and many families are broken.
How many thousands of other Amris are walking around Europe?
