DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:35 P.M.) – The Syrian man accused of planning a terror attack in Berlin, Jaber Al-Bakr, reportedly joined the western-funded “White Helmets” group in the Idlib Governorate prior to his return to Germany two months ago, Reuters News Agency claimed on Sunday.

Al-Bakr’s brother spoke to Reuters on Sunday, claiming that Jaber may have been radicalized by local imams in Germany before planning to carry out a terrorist attack against the country that hosted him and thousands of Syrian refugees.

The terror suspect later committed suicide in his jail cell before answering any questions regarding his motives.

Infuriated over his brother’s arrest, ‘Alaa Al-Bakr told a German newspaper on Sunday that he plans to exact revenge against the Syrian refugees that reported his brother to the cops.

Syrian refugees living in Germany helped play a crucial role in stopping Jaber Al-Bakr from carrying out a terrorist attack in Berlin, thanks to their early warnings to the local authorities.

Very probably. And revenge, errr, about what? The rodent was about to blow himself and committed suicide. At worst, he’d had spent what? 7-10 years in prison? Probably no more than 5…

I can read German media. The names of the people that handed the terror suspect to the police are not public knowledge. Syrian bloggers in Germany had informed their compatriots in Arabic. Any Syrian could have informed the police. They did a favor to all the Syrians in Germany and the Germans. I take the brothers words for empty air or the confession that the whole family is into that line of thought. It is illegal for a person with refugee status to go to Syria and go back to Germany. My question: why did the family including the brother… Read more »
