    Default German Arrested For Planning 'False Flag' Terror Attack

    German Soldier Posing As A Syrian Refugee Arrested For Planning 'False Flag' Terror Attack

    Investigators say lieutenant stashed gun at Vienna airport to be used in 'act of state-threatening violence'

    By Lizzie Dearden - 27 April 2017


    A German soldier found posing as a Syrian refugee has been arrested for planning a "false flag" shooting attack that would be blamed on asylum seekers.


    The unidentified soldier was detained when he went to retrieve a loaded pistol he had hidden in a bathroom at Vienna International Airport.

    The public prosecutor's office in Frankfurt said the 28-year-old is suspected of planning a serious "state-threatening act of violence", fraud and violating firearms laws.

    More than 90 German police officers have worked alongside Austrian and French security forces to search 16 locations across three countries on Wednesday, when a suspected accomplice was arrested in Bavaria.

    Investigations have revealed that the Bundeswehr lieutenant was stationed at Illkirch-Graffenstaden in France before registering as a refugee back in Germany.

    He gave false information to authorities in Giessen, Hesse, on 30 December 2015 - as Germany was overwhelmed by the arrival of almost a million asylum seekers.

    Posing as a Syrian refugee but reportedly speaking in French, rather than Arabic, the man submitted an asylum application at Zirndorf in Bavaria in January last year.

    "As a result, he was given shelter in a refugee home and has received monthly financial benefits under this false identity," the Frankfurt prosecutor's office said.

    "These findings, as well as other evidence, point towards a xenophobic motive for the soldier's suspected plan to commit an attack using a weapon deposited at Vienna airport."

    If his plan had succeeded, his fingerprints would have registered on the refugee records system and led investigators to his false identity as a Syrian asylum seeker
    , turning fresh scrutiny on migrants in Germany.

    The man's suspected accomplice, a 24-year-old student, was arrested in Hammelburg for involvement in the plot.

    Police have searched the homes of the two suspects as well as their friends and workplaces, with detectives seizing "extensive material" including mobile phones, laptops and documents.

    Prosecutors said the soldier had no permission for the 7.65mm pistol stashed in Vienna, while illegal weapons were also found at his accomplice's house.

    Both men remain in custody in Frankfurt as the probe continues.

    The soldier was arrested days after prosecutors revealed that the man who orchestrated the Dortmund bus bombings had attempted to frame Isis to make money on shares.

    Sergej W, a dual German-Russian national, detonated three bombs targeting a bus
    carrying the Borussia Dortmund football team, seriously injuring one player on 11 April.

    He left misspelled letters at the scene claiming the attack was retaliation for German military intervention against Isis, but investigations found he was not an Islamist [a Muslim] but a trader planning to profit from short-selling shares.

    A series of Isis-inspired terror attacks and plots in Germany have raised tensions leading into September’s federal elections, where Angela Merkel is battling to win a fourth term as Chancellor.

    Right-wing groups have blamed her decision to open borders to refugees in 2015, while extremists have launched hundreds of attacks on asylum seekers’ accommodation.

    At least two neo-Nazi terror plots have been uncovered, while security services have cracked down on the anti-government Reichsbürger movement after one of its members killed a police officer.

    Division over asylum, immigration and security has driven clashes at protests and political rallies, driving a record year for politically-motivated crime in Germany.

    Whether it’s their governments or their citizens, these western terrorists do terrorism on their own people and then blame the Muslims.

    Second German soldier arrested over 'false flag' plot to assassinate left-wing politicians in terror attack


    Prosecutors say Maximilian T covered for friend as he posed as Syrian refugee


    Tuesday 9 May 2017



    A second soldier has been arrested for allegedly planning a “false flag” terror attack to be blamed on refugees in Germany amid fears of a wider neo-Nazi network within the army.


    The plot was exposed with the arrest of a German lieutenant, Franco A, who was found to be posing as a Syrian refugee in order to carry out a shooting attack targeting left-wing politicians.


    One of his friends at Illkirch-Graffenstaden barracks in France has now been detained for allegedly covering for the soldier’s absences as he periodically returned to Bavaria to continue the ruse.

    Maximilian T, a 27-year-old German national, was also a member of Jägerbataillon 291 and was arrested on Tuesday after being questioned by military intelligence officers.


    He had joined his friend on a trip to Vienna in January – supposedly for an officers’ ball – where Franco A stashed an unregistered gun to be used in the attack at the city’s main airport.


    Maximilian T was also part of an online messaging group where he, Franco A and other members exchanged far-right posts, photos and audio files, Der Spiegel reported.

    He is assumed to be “number three” in the plot, following Franco A and Mathias F, a friend from his hometown who was also arrested in April.

    “They were willing, or at least claimed to be, to kill for their cause,”
    an investigator said.

    As well as the loaded 7.65mm pistol stashed in a toilet at Vienna International Airport, around 1,000 rounds of ammunition were found at Mathias F’s home in Offenbach – mostly stolen from the German army.

    The federal prosecutor's office said the three suspects were suspected of planning to attack senior politicians and public figures “who are committed to an immigration and refugee policy which has failed in the view of the defendants”.

    The names of the former German President, Joachim Gauck, and left-wing justice minister Heiko Maas (SPD) were on a list of potential targets, said spokesperson Frauke Köhler.

    She told a press conference Franco A planned to frame Islamist militants for the attack, which would have been linked to his fake identity as a Syrian refugee.

    “The three suspects wanted to direct suspicion at asylum seekers living in Germany after the attack,” she added.

    “The planned attack was intended to be interpreted by the population as a radical Islamist terrorist attack by a recognised refugee.

    “Especially with regard to the ongoing public discussion over immigration and refugee policy, an alleged terrorist attack by a registered asylum seeker would have attracted particular attention and contributed to the sense of threat.”

    Numerous asylum seekers have been arrested on terror charges in Germany, including former members of Isis, al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

    Franco A had created a fake persona under the name David Benjamin, telling immigration officials he was a Damascus fruit seller from a Christian family with French roots.

    No doubts appear to have been raised over the credibility of the 28-year-old’s background, despite him speaking mainly French with a smattering of Arabic from a language course.

    The lieutenant registered in Giessen, Hesse, on 30 December 2015 – as Germany was overwhelmed by the arrival of almost a million asylum seekers - then submitted an asylum application at Zirndorf in Bavaria in January last year.

    Despite having to return to Germany to collect monthly welfare payments, Franco A continued his army post in France until the day of his arrest because his friend covered for him
    , prosecutors said.

    “Maximilian T is strongly suspected of planning a serious act of violence against the state out of a right-wing extremist conviction,”
    a spokesperson added.

    “The resulting absences were at least partly covered up by Maximilian T, who had excused Franco A to his superiors.”

    Officials said he obtained a Second World War era Unique Model 17 pistol for the attack, which he hid in a disabled toilet in Vienna International Airport while passing through in January.

    Franco A’s double life was only discovered when he was arrested after returning to retrieve the gun in February.

    A fingerprint check revealed his fake identity as a Syrian refugee, but when “David Benjamin” failed to answer a court summons in Austria, a wider investigation was triggered and the plot unravelled.

    The soldier had not raised alarm over extremism in the army, despite writing a master’s thesis on ”political change and subversion strategy“ at a French university in 2014 that was found to contain far-right thinking.

    An assault rifle case carved with a swastika was found in his barracks room, where the letters HH [Heil Hitler] were inscribed on the wall and a Nazi-era pamphlet depicting a Wehrmacht soldier
    was discovered.

    The unprecedented plot has shocked Germany, prompting investigations within the army and interior ministry over how Franco A was able to lead a double life for more than a year.

    The defence minister, Ursula von der Leyen, has come under fire for her handling of the case after attacking “weak leadership” following the discovery of 275 suspected right-wing extremists within Germany’s military.

    She has since apologised for her blanket criticism, following scandals including sexual abuse and hazing at another military base.

    Angela Merkel defended the minister, who has been widely tipped as her successor as Germany heads of federal elections in September.

    “It is right that the defence minister did not trivialise what has happened,” the Chancellor said.

    “She calls it by its name [right-wing extremism] and is saying that we have to look at whether something like this is happening more often."
