Germany: ‘Palestinian asylum seeker’ Muslim terrorist charged with murder – not terrorism

German prosecutors said Friday they have charged a 26-year-old ‘Palestinian asylum seeker’ with murder after his deadly knife rampage at a Hamburg supermarket in July.

The Muslim terrorist, named as Ahmad A., murdered one and wounded six in the July terror attack, and was arrested after passers-by overpowered him.

“The results of the investigation show that the accused sought out his victims indiscriminately, retaliating against people, who in his view represent perpetrators of injustice targeting Muslims,” said prosecutors.

“It was important to him to kill as many German nationals of the Christian faith as possible. He wanted his actions to be viewed in the context of an Islamist attack, and understood as a contribution to jihad worldwide,” they added.

Investigators, however, did not find any evidence to suggest that A. was a member of ISIS, said the prosecution service, charging the Muslim terrorist with murder, as well as six counts of attempted murder and grievous bodily harm.

He risks life in prison, although Germany often grants parole after 15 years.
