Too often, as recent events confirm in Germany, the security apparatus of a country is hamstrung by political correctness which, given its ability to blind its proponents to reality, is itself a dangerous ideology.

"You won't be scared, because you're going to God, isn't that right?" the al-Qaeda linked father asks his daughters Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.
A Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (JFS) operative has been killed in Damascus just weeks after he filmed his daughters talking to him about being part of a suicide bombing.
In two videos, Nimr, a well-known member of JFS, the newly adopted name of al-Nusra, or al-Qaeda in Syria, filmed his wife saying goodbye to eight-year-old Fatimah and seven-year-old Islam.
The footage showed Nimr talking to his two daughters, asking them: "You want to surrender so that you're raped and killed by the infidels? You want to kill them, no? We're a glorious religion, not a religion of humiliation, isn't that so darling?"
The video emerged after Nimr booby-trapped his oldest daughter and detonated her in al-Midan police station in Damascus.
Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.The SOHR reported that JFS had assassinated Nimr, despite him working for them. The motive behind the killing was not known.
