    Default German Neo-Nazi Trial

    The trial begins tomorrow of Beate Zschaspe, a German Neo-Nazi who turned herself in last year in connection with 10 racially motivated murders over a seven year period.

    The killings, mostly of ethnic Turks, were distastefully dubbed the "kebab murders" by the German press.

    German authorities believed these murders were the result of internal Mafia feuds and seemed to discount any possibility that their own far-Right were involved.

    Investigations since Zscheape's arrest have revealed serious shortcomings and failings in German intelligence.

    Is Germany still in denial about its Far-Right "problem"?

    I think he's hoping the trial won't proceed because no-one will be able to pronounce his name.

    Beate is a girl's name alright. This case is interesting as it could expose a number of State controlled agent provocateurs within the neo-Nazi ranks in Germany.

    If she gets the death penalty, she'll be ex-Zschasperated.

    Why are there so many Turks living in Germany anyway?

    Why are there so many Irish living in the UK? Economics I'd guess. It's not really the point of the thread though.

    Germany has a dangerous, militant far Right which it pretends not to.

    This is the story.

    Some of it would be down to the Gastarbeiter policy in the 60s and 70s.

    This Tzschaspe woman wasn't alone in these murders. One of her associates was an actual cop...makes you wonder..
    History repeats itself. First as tragedy, second as farce.

    Germany in denial...???

    Don't think so tbh... although they may well be getting tired of the WW2 guilt trips that they're constantly having to endure...

    I'd say for the most part Germans are well aware of the far-right issue within their borders... as are most countries as it's on the rise everywhere...

    But then that's what inevitably happens when multi-culturalism is rammed down people's throats by incompetent politicians who haven't much of a clue about anything...

    Don't get me wrong... I much prefer the multi-cultural Ireland that exists today over the Catholic/State dominated dump I grew up in... but I also understand that it must be managed carefully and that it must be sustainable...

    Too many politicians everywhere don't seem to 'get' this and ignore those who do...
