Germany: 12-year-old Muslim boy targets Christmas market with nail bomb, a post from Jihad Watch, with comments

“Authorities also told ZDF that the boy had been radicalized via social media and the Internet.”

Well, that neatly lets his family and his local Muslim community and mosque off the hook. But is it true? Have authorities investigated what is taught at his local mosque? Have they asked themselves why, if this boy had really been taught peaceful Islam by his parents and the mosque, he was so susceptible to the supposedly twisted and hijacked version of Islam he found on the Internet? Why haven’t they?

“Christmas Market Targeted With Nail Bomb by Boy, 12: German Officials,” by Andy Eckardt, NBC News, December 16, 2016:

A 12-year-old boy tried to detonate a nail bomb at a Christmas market in Germany, authorities said.

The explosive device was found near the Town Hall in Ludwigshafen earlier this month.

Hubert Stroeber, a spokesman for the local prosecutor’s office, told NBC News that it would “turn down an investigation in the case” due to the fact the boy is aged under 14.

However, Stroeber confirmed that Germany’s Federal Prosecutor had been informed about the incident.

The suspect was born in Germany but is of Iraqi heritage….

FOCUS quoted investigators as saying the “strongly radicalized” youth was likely “incited and instructed” by an “unidentified member of ISIS.”

He also had hoped to travel to Iraq to join ISIS last summer, it reported.

Due to the country’s laws regarding the age of criminal responsibility, the 12-year-old was not arrested but instead reportedly taken into foster care.

German security officials confirmed to NBC News’ partner ZDF that the details reported by FOCUS were correct.

Authorities also told ZDF that the boy had been radicalized via social media and the Internet….

    “…but instead reportedly taken into foster care.”

    I’ll bet the Government started paying his similarly situated Aunt and Uncle a Foster stipend to live with them. They’ll simply see it as Jizya.

      … and the boy will become peaceful so long as the society keeps paying; His parents and the Mosque will easily convince the boy that Germans become protected persons (dhimmi) so long as his family keeps being paid. All is fine until the next youngster is taught that followers of the Koran are special and should be paid by the rest of society… or else. Trick or treat! Islam: Halloween on steroids.

      We aren’t talking about a nose to grindstone philosophy here. Are there *any* lines in the Koran that indicate work might be virtuous?

    “the boy had been radicalized via social media and the Internet….”

    It’s incomprehensible that adherents to a peaceful religion become violent and easily turn into terrorists when radicalized. Why don’t they become radical pacifists in correspondence and harmony with their religion? Who can explain? Are social media more powerful than the clear, peaceful passages in the Muslim canon?

    So – the “authorities” won’t investigate because he’s only twelve ? Well, that’s ok then, isn’t it ? After all – it’s a well-known fact that nail-bombs planted by 12-year olds don’t actually hurt, isn’t it……..?
