“Brutal and ruthless” Muslim, and “violent” Roma gypsy gangs are terrorising the streets of dozens of major European cities, as they vie for control of lucrative black market trade.
Running drug rings and pimping prostitutes, as well as owning legitimate street businesses can be worth tens of millions of euros a year – and more – to the immigrant criminal gangs of Europe. Having influence over territory is key to making this business model work, and as well as fighting each other the vast ethnic gangs are also fighting themselves, as influential families compete.
German magazine RP Online reports the scene at a Dusseldorf hospital this past weekend, which was turned into a fortress by state police to prevent what they feared were to be serious riots. A number of members of the same family had been admitted for treatment after a mass brawl and officers feared a siege as others attempted to finish the job.
Reports indicate that much of the infighting between the Roma gangs are over the ownership of women, while the Arabs are much more profit-motivated. Even in areas where gypsies have seized control of the prostitution rackets, they are still forced to pay protection money to the Muslims who rule the city, reports the Berliner Kurier.
Focus.de reports a theme often repeated in relation to these gangs, that they are ruthless, violent and exist entirely independently of national law. Running whole neighbourhoods of Germany’s largest cities, the Arab gangs operate their own parallel legal system, where the punishment for treason is death.
For Muslim shopkeepers who aren’t even part of the gangs, keeping a restaurant or hookah bar on the wrong street can mean enormous liabilities in protection money paid to one of the influential Arab gangs. Sustained non-payment of this money is punished with death. Likewise, anyone who “betrays his own people to the Germans, risks his life”, wrote hard-line judge Kristen Heisig before her mysterious death in 2010.
Her apparent suicide happened only days after she had submitted a manuscript for her latest book to her publishers, in which she warned without serious reform and a more hard-line attitude to gangs, Germany would “lose the struggle”. In the five years since, the situation has spiralled out of control as mass migration has provided re-enforcements for the gangs.
Berlin police estimate of the 30 criminal Muslim family clans in Berlin, each of which has up to 500 members, one tenth of all members are engaged in serious criminal activity at any given time. And they dominate the criminal landscape: a German senate report found that between 2011 and 2014, the majority of all gang crime suspects in the country were of “Arab origin”.
