Germany: Hundreds of Police Officers Raid Homes of People Who Support Palestine



New York Post:

Hundreds of police officers searched the properties of Hamas members and followers in Germany on Thursday morning following a formal ban on any activity by or in support of the terrorist group.

The German government implemented the ban on Nov. 2 and dissolved Samidoun, a group that was behind a celebration in Berlin of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

Germany’s domestic intelligence service estimates that Hamas has around 450 members in the country.

Their activities range from expressions of sympathy and propaganda activities to financing and fundraising activities to strengthen the organization abroad.

“We are continuing our consistent action against radical Islamists,” German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said. “By banning Hamas and Samidoun in Germany, we have sent a clear signal that we will not tolerate any glorification or support of Hamas’ barbaric terror against Israel.”

The raids, which mostly took place in Berlin, were meant to enforce the bans and to further investigate the groups, the German interior ministry said in a statement.

A total of 16 properties were searched by 500 police officers in Berlin and the states of Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Schleswig-Holstein.

In Berlin alone, more than 300 police officers carried out searches at 11 locations in order to seize evidence and assets.

Seven searches were related to Hamas and four to Samidoun.

The searches mainly took place at the homes of supporters and the premises of a Palestinian association, German news agency DPA reported.

There are literally people on the internet claiming it is “based” that the Germans are cracking down on pro-Palestine immigrants, because “at least they’re doing something.”

I don’t even feel like saying why this is retarded. I don’t have the energy for every retardation every day.

But here’s a clue: the same government is also saying that it is going to bring in way more immigrants.

(Hint: It’s not about immigration. It’s about Israel.)
