Let this be the tipping point……
Maria Ladenburger was murdered in the German city of Freiburg
An Afghan reguee has been arrested over the horrifying death of the German teenager.
In Freiburg – the ancient university city where Maria Ladenburger was studying before her brutal death in October – a demonstration was held on Sunday by the hard-right anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) party in which she was portrayed as “the victim of Merkel’s welcome culture”.
Social media is also burning up with hate messages directed at refugees in the wake of the arrest of the 17-year-old Afghan boy whose DNA has linked him to the murder of Maria, the daughter of a high ranking EU legal official.
One tweet from Eli Dahl quoted Angela Merkel from her election campaign in 2006 when she told the House of Representatives: “Zero tolerance when it comes to interior security, Ladies and Gentlemen.”
