Anis Amri, 24, of Tunisia, is wanted as a suspect in the Dec. 19 truck attack that killed 12 and injured 48 at a Christmas market in Berlin.

What appears from the outside to be a bungling of basic law-enforcement operations in Germany – allowing a known illegal alien with a criminal and terrorist past to move about freely in German society for more than a year – may not be a bungling at all.

Rather, it’s part of a coordinated strategy also being used by open-borders globalists in the Obama administration, says a retired Homeland Security officer.

Philip Haney, co-author of the whistleblower book “See Something Say Nothing,” explains how a Muslim migrant was able to stay in the country long enough to plan an attack that killed 12 and injured nearly 50 at a Berlin Christmas market Monday. This, despite being under surveillance by the German government for months.

Anis Amri, a Tunisian national, was allowed to float about undetected by German authorities for more than a year, even though he was a known terror threat who had his asylum bid rejected and had spent four years in an Italian prison for burning down a school.

The policy that treats Islamic radicals with the soft touch of a preschool teacher, making sure not to violate their “civil rights and civil liberties,” is called “countering violent extremism,” or CVE.

It’s the same policy that governs the Obama administration’s actions in fighting terrorism in the homeland.

The CVE program is rooted in United Nations Agenda 2030 principles on migrant rights, which are adopted by sanctuary cities throughout the world. The principles of CVE are being implemented in city police departments worldwide through the U.N.’s Strong Cities Network, as well as through the U.N. New Urban Agenda.

As previously reported by WND, the Rockefeller Foundation is promoting the New Urban Agenda as the means to transform cities into multi-cultural havens for migrants.

CAIR and the corruption of law enforcement

The other piece to the puzzle is the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, which is heavily involved in the CVE program. Just last week, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported that CAIR was hired by Obama’s Homeland Security Department to hold a training event in Tampa, Florida, for a delegation of French police officers. Yes, French police traveled to Florida to get trained in the latest methods of law enforcement with a focus on how not to offend Muslims and migrants.

America is headed down the same suicidal path as Europe — some call it occupation by invitation, reports a new investigative book by WND journalist Leo Hohmann: “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad.”

CAIR has criticized CVE as “discriminatory and biased” against Muslims, but the group’s participation in the recent CVE training for French police shows that its earlier objections to the program are really just a smokescreen, Haney told WND.

“CVE is similar in many ways to the ‘catch and release’ program Obama has implemented at the border,” Haney said. “You have a person in custody, you question them, but then you let them go.”

That’s exactly what German authorities did with 24-year-old Anis Amri, a native of Tunisia who came to Europe as an illegal alien, first arriving in Italy seven years ago as a teenager. He was convicted of arson and spent four years in prison, was released and made his way to Germany in July 2015.

Instead of being immediately deported, Amri was given the “catch and release” treatment and granted an asylum hearing. He was denied asylum in June, yet the German government still dragged its feet, reportedly scheduling his deportation for July, then delaying the deportation again, reportedly waiting for his passport to arrive in the mail.

The German authorities had several opportunities to detain and deport a known criminal but refused to do the right thing at every opportunity, Haney said. This despite reports that Amri used six different names under three different nationalities in a game of cat and mouse meant to confuse authorities as to his real identity. He was also known to have received weapons training at an overseas terrorist camp.

With Muslim Brotherhood-inspired groups like CAIR calling the shots on how law enforcement is to treat Muslim defendants in terrorism investigations, the end result is almost always that the defendant, often a migrant or son of a migrant, is allowed to roam free while the investigation proceeds.

If the German government had done its job and deported Amri in a timely fashion, he would not have been able to steal a truck, assassinate its driver and ram it into the Christmas market crowd, killing 12 Germans, Haney said.

Protecting Muslim migrants at all cost

Among the practitioners of CVE, their overriding concern is guarding and protecting Muslim migrants against any possible backlash from the native population. That’s why even after the terrorist attack on Berlin was carried out, German and U.K. police have stepped up patrols to combat “Islamophobia,” Robert Spencer reported Wednesday in an article for Jihad Watch.

Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, took the same approach after last year’s attack on a Christmas party in San Bernardino, which left 14 Americans dead at the hands of jihadists Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik. Lynch said she would “aggressively prosecute” any anti-Islamic speech on social media that “edged toward violence.”

In issuing these warnings, the Obama administration was merely following the dictates of U.N. Resolution 16/18, which seeks to suppress speech critical of Islam. Obama’s State Department crafted the language for this anti-First Amendment resolution with help from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 56-nation voting bloc of Muslim countries at the U.N.

Lynch was forced to walk back her comments after universal outrage from First Amendment advocates in her own country.

But this extreme effort to avoid offending Islam has been a bedrock value of the Obama administration since it took office. Among its first actions was to shut down the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial in Dallas, Texas, in which the FBI had been successful in prosecuting Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the U.S.  Then in 2011 the Obama administration scrubbed all FBI and Homeland Security training manuals of any negative references to Islam.

The same extreme efforts to shield Islam from criticism are seen in Europe.

Germany is working with Facebook to round up and prosecute Germans who post information deemed to be “hate speech” against Islam and particularly Muslim migrants.

What will Trump do?

Haney said President-elect Donald Trump must do away with the suicidal CVE policies installed by Obama, because these policies are more concerned with violating the civil rights and civil liberties of Islamic radicals than they are with protecting America.

Germany is reaping the bitter fruit of this same policy. Twelve Germans, including several women and children, are dead, and more than a dozen more are seriously wounded by a terrorist who should never have been let in the country. And even after he was allowed in, the government had multiple opportunities to arrest and deport him but failed to do so.

Declaring the Brotherhood a terrorist organization

Haney said the other priority of the incoming Trump administration should be to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. House Bill 3892 is designed to do exactly that.

“The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act would take CAIR and ISNA out of the public arena, out of the legislative arena, out of the law enforcement arena, all at one time,” Haney said. “Trump already said he intends to designate the Brotherhood as a terrorist organization and several other countries already have [including Russia, Egypt and the UAE] so it would not be hard to do.”

Haney said he has documented at least 150 visits to the White House by Brotherhood-connected Muslim leaders during Obama’s tenure in office.

“They are a chameleon that can change colors and will have to be watched carefully with the Republicans taking power, but passing HR 3892 would be a great start,” he said. “Without firing a shot, you eliminate 80 percent of the problem, because if you’re declared a terrorist organization you are not allowed to operate in the political arena or in the law enforcement arena. There would be no more CAIR-sponsored training for police. No more sensitivity training for our officers thereby preventing them from doing their jobs.”

The bill already has nearly 80 co-sponsors in the House.

“The excuse for not passing it this year was that Republicans were waiting to see who won the presidential election, believing that it would be a wasted effort to pass the bill if Hillary Clinton became president,” Haney said.

“They wanted to wait till after the election. Now they have no excuse.”
