Considering how close Obama is with terror-tied American Muslim groups, this should give every American great pause. He welcomed them to the White House and appointed Muslim Brotherhood operatives to key positions in the Department of State, Department of Justice,  etc.

Donald Trump must do a major purge in order to ensure the safety of the American people.

German ‘mole’ is arrested over Islamist plot

Euro News: An employee of Germany’s domestic intelligence service (BfV) has been arrested over a suspected Islamist plot to bomb the agency’s Cologne Headquarters.Media reports claim the “mole” has already made a “partial confession”.

The 51-year-old suspect is accused of making Islamist statements on the Internet using a false name and of revealing internal agency material in Internet chatrooms that could lead to a threat to the office. He was reportedly caught by an agency informant, with the pair having online conversations about a possible attack.

A German intelligence officer has reportedly been arrested over a suspected Islamist plot to bomb the agency’s headquarters in Cologne.


“He is accused of making Islamist remarks online under a false name, and offering internal information during chats,” a BfV spokesman said.

The BfV said the man “behaved inconspicuously” prior to his arrest. He had, since April, been engaged in gathering intelligence on Islamist extremists in Germany, Der Spiegel said.

Online chats were apparently found between the suspect and other Islamists in which he attempted to recruit them to the intelligence agency to mount an attack on “non-believers”, carrying out a bomb attack on the spy HQ “in the name of Allah”.

He used several different names online and his activities were uncovered about a month ago.

The man’s family reportedly knew nothing of his conversion to Islam two years ago and subsequent radicalisation.

The suspect was thought to have pledged of allegiance to Mohamed Mahmoud, the Austrain leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant terrorist group.

Germany is on high alert following several terror attacks over the summer.

The BfV estimates there are about 40,000 Islamists in Germany, including 9,200 ultra-conservative Islamists known as Salafists, Hans-Georg Maassen, who leads the agency, told Reuters in an interview earlier this month.

“We remain a target of Islamic terrorism and we have to assume that Islamic State or other terrorist organisations will carry out an attack in Germany if they can,” he said at the time.

Isil claimed two attacks in late July – on a train near Wuerzburg and on a music festival in Ansbach – in which asylum-seekers wounded 20 people in total.

In addition, security forces had to respond to an attack in a shopping centre in the city of Munich in which nine people were killed by an 18-year-old German-Iranian who had been in psychiatric treatment and was obsessed with mass killings.
