Editorial Preface: It appears that the attacker must be ‘..racist..’ against “Anglo” (White people), since the ‘victim’ was of this ethnicity. Anyone with even a limited intellect knows that Islam is not a “race” of people. Allegedly, it’s a “religion.” Although, it’s more akin to a mental illness, combined with sexual perversion. Additionally, being “Muslim” is not a race either. As we all know, there are Muslims of ALL races: Arab Muslims, African Muslims, Hispanic Muslims, Oriental Muslims, Anglo Muslims, etc. – Evidently, the writer of this article below is not aware of these facts…but, we are. Perhaps this is why the writer declined to publish his/her name on their article. They did not want to be personally associated with such ‘race-baiting’ nonintellectual trash.

A German mayoral candidate active in helping refugees has been seriously wounded in what police described as a stabbing with a “racist political” motive.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed her “shock” over yesterday’s attack in the western city of Cologne, which left mayoral hopeful Henriette Reker with serious neck wounds.
Ms Reker, an independent close to Ms Merkel’s ruling Christian Democrats responsible for refugee issues in Cologne, was stabbed in the neck at a party information stand in the city.
Four other people were also injured, one of them seriously, with regional police chief Wolfgang Albers saying it was a “political act”.
The attacker was arrested at the scene and told police he had “a racist motivation for committing this act,” Cologne police official Norbert Wagner said at a news conference.
The stabbing comes as Ms Merkel prepares to travel to Istanbul today for talks on the crisis with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has heaped scorn on Europe’s efforts to deal with the problem so far.
She has pushed for a fairer distribution of people across the European Union, but the crisis has sorely tested ties between member states and put unprecedented strain on the right to free movement that is at the core of the 28-nation bloc’s values.
Slovenia said yesterday it was drafting in the army to help police cope with an expected influx of thousands of migrants arriving after Hungary shut its border with Croatia overnight in its latest hardline move to stop the flow of people.

More than 630,000 people fleeing war and misery in the Middle East and Africa have landed on Europe’s shores this year, with many making risky sea crossings from Turkey to Greece.
Highlighting the human cost of the crisis, another 12 people drowned yesterday when their wooden boat sank off the Turkish coast as they were trying to reach the Greek island of Lesbos, Turkey’s Anatolia news agency reported.
Most of the refugees and migrants are trying to get to Germany, Europe’s economic powerhouse, which has said it expects up to one million asylum seekers this year after saying it would open its doors to Syrian refugees.
Ms Merkel’s policy has led to growing tensions in Germany, triggering a backlash from her conservative allies and spawning a growing number of increasingly vocal far-right protests.
Ms Merkel’s approach has helped mobilise thousands of volunteers to join in the country’s biggest post-war refugee relief effort, but some European peers have not approved, with Hungary’s hawkish premier Victor Orban among those firing barbs at Ms Merkel.
The flood of people seeking to reach northern Europe showed no signs of abating, with thousands of migrants seeking a new route through Slovenia after Hungary’s overnight border closure.
Croatia began ferrying migrants to Slovenia yesterday, away from the Hungarian border, with more than 2000 expected to make the journey during the day.
The tiny Alpine state has said it can handle up to 8000 refugees crossing through on their way to Austria, which has also reinforced its border ahead of the anticipated rise in the numbers.
Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar has sent troops to the border with Croatia but said they would simply help police with logistics and equipment to deal with the new arrivals, insisting the move “does not mean there is an extraordinary situation”.
Hungary’s border closure came as much-hyped European Union attempts to reach a deal with Turkey ran into difficulties, with Erdogan on Friday ridiculing the bloc’s efforts to help Syrian refugees and questioning whether Brussels was taking Ankara’s long-standing EU membership application seriously.
Germany has more than it’s share of ignorant, Muslim sympathizers. Here are but a few of the ‘next generation’ of Nazis…
