While there are world leaders who seem to ignore the threats of Europe’s migrant crisis, there are others like Angela Merkel who simply doesn’t care about getting her country harmed by the consequences of this issue in the name of multiculturalism.
Under her watch, millions of Muslim migrants have flooded Germany over the last few years. Amid a spike in rapes and many other crimes, there’s another frightening trend that is emerging within Europe’s largest economy thanks to its open borders policy and its unwillingness to acknowledge the threats of Islam: Sharia Police.
According to local police who are investigating a recent string of violence assaults in Berlin, a hundred Islamists are now openly enforcing Sharia law on the streets of the German capital. The self-appointed morality police involve Salafists from Chechnya, which is a Sunni Muslim region in Russia.
Apparently, these Islamic vigilantes are using different threats of violence in order to discourage Chechen migrants from integrating into the German society so they can control this group of people.
Additionally, this Sharia police is promoting the establishment of a parallel Islamic legal system in the country, and the most concerning detail is that German authorities seem to be unable to stop them.
This Sharia patrol started to get huge notoriety in May when Chechen Salafists published a video warning other Chechens in Germany that those who fail to comply with Islamic law and adat (which is a traditional Chechen code of behavior) will be brutally killed.
The video shows a hooded man aiming a pistol at the camera, saying in Chechen that gay men and Chechen women who marry with people of other ethnic groups will be set straight by this Sharia police.
Furthermore, the man in the video revealed that already 80 people are part of this group, and assured that they will go onto Berlin streets to make sure that Chechens comply with the Koran. This video circulated through the online messaging service WhatsApp and quickly became quite famous in the Germany’s Chechen community.
Apparently, this threatening declaration was made by a representative of a Berlin-based gang of about hundred members, led by former henchmen of Dzhokhar Dudayev, who is the late Chechen separatist leader. Russian-language independent media organization Meduza reported that all Berliners of Chechen origin are aware of the gang’s existence.
This video surfaced after nude photos of a 20-year-old Chechen woman who lives in the German capital city were sent en masse from her stolen smartphone to each person on her contact list. One hour later, the woman’s uncle demanded to speak with her parents and they agreed to solve this issue within the family by sending her back Chechnya where she would be killed in order to restore their honor.
However, German authorities intervened a couple of hours before the woman was to board a plane bound for Russia. After being placed in protective police custody, the woman’s circumstance went from being a family issue to a communal one, given the fact that it is now the responsibility of any Chechen man to find and punish her.
The woman, who radically changed her look in order to hide her identity, explained that while her acts are not of their business it is an unwritten code of conduct within Chechen community. She told that her main goal right now is to change her name and undergo plastic surgery since she assures that if you don’t take these steps they will hunt you down and kill you.
Wtf?? This ain’t a movie. Yo, @RealJamesWoods RT this out there.

While this is a concerning issue that is already getting out of control in Berlin, this is not the first time that this kind of situation happens in Europe´s largest economy.
Back in 2014, another self-appointed Sharia police group began patrolling streets in the city of Wuppertal, hovering around sites like gambling houses and night clubs, telling passers-by to refrain from gambling and drinking any kind of alcohol.
Regarding this issue, Germany’s interior minister Thomas de Maizere told that nobody is allowed to take it upon themselves to abuse the name of the German police. Additionally, justice minister Heiko Mass said that only the state was responsible for the administration of justice in the country, and that it was quite obvious that any illegal parallel system of law enforcement would not be tolerated.
So far, authorities haven’t made any comment about this new Sharia police.
