Merkel: refugee terrorists mock those who welcomed them with open arms
During a press conference in Berlin on Thursday morning, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her country's open-door policy regarding Muslim refugees from the Middle East would not change and that Germany would continue to take them in. She called the recent terrorist attacks in her country and elsewhere in Europe "shocking, depressing and terrifying" and announced that from now on Germany will assume a tougher stance and deport migrants whose requests for citizenship were rejected. She also said that refugees who engage in terror are mocking the German government. According to information received by DEBKAfile's intelligence sources, the terrorist who blew himself up in the city of Anscach on Sunday had been identified by German intelligence organizations as the head of a special terror unit of the Nusra Front. He had received asylum and medical treatment in Germany after being wounded in Syria.
