Contrary to the viral internet reports, there is NO hard evidence that the Germanwings co-pilot, Andreas Gunter Lubitz, was a convert to Islam
I have been deluged with people screaming at me because I am not reporting that the “co-pilot was a Muslim convert.” That is because ALL the so-called ‘evidence’ is coming from a single internet source, Speisa, in which the only ‘hard evidence’ provided is that the author, himself, says so. Should any real hard evidence be published, I will post it.
On the other hand, I do firmly believe that Muslims ARE indirectly responsible for why this Germanwings 9525 co-pilot was so easily able to crash the plane into the French Alps.
The Speisa article states:
According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Germany now has its own 9/11, thanks to the convert to Islam, Andreas Lubitz.
Translation from German: All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.
From Roman Catholic Imperialist: It was said that Lubitz had a Muslim girlfriend. It is unclear if she was still dating Lubitz at the time of the crash. It is unclear if he met the woman through his Muslim friends. One said that Lubitz had broken off the relationship after he pledged to commit Jihad for Allah.
We do know that Lubitz trained at the Lufthansa Flight Training School in Bremen, Germany. Bremen is home to the Masjidu-l-Furqan Mosque:
This Mosque was raided by the police in December 2014:
BERLIN, Dec 5 (KUNA) — German authorities have closed a mosque in the northern city of Bremen, after it was accused of encouraging youth to join the extremist Islamic State group (known as ISIL), which is carrying out violent killings across Syria and Iraq.
In unprecedented circumstances, more than 100 German police personnel carried out a search of Masjidu-l-Furqan and its accompanying cultural office, which had both been under police radar since 2007.
The decision comes amid the fight against ISIL ideology, Bremen Interior Secretary Ulrich Maurer said, accusing the mosque’s management of promoting ISIL values and encouraging young Muslims in the city to travel to Syria and Iraq, and join the ranks of the group, along with Al-Nusra Front – another extremist group in Syria.
The centre have so far succeeded in inspiring a total eight men, seven women and 11 juveniles to travel to Syria and join ISIL, according to the official.
Lubitz did his time in Bremen when the Mosque was under surveillance.
During his training Lubitz took a break – a several month break:
Carsten Spohr, CEO of Germanwings parent company, said in a press conference today that Lubitz “took a break in his training six years ago. Then he did the tests (technical and psychological) again. And he was deemed 100 percent fit to fly.” “I am not able to state the reasons why he took the break for several months. I can because Lubitz converted to Islam during his break.
A number of Facebook pages referencing the co-pilot of Flight 9525, Andreas Lubitz, included one that supposedly was from the Islamic State praising him for his actions. Whether or not ISIS actually did put it up, it is quite common for Muslim groups to heap praise on anyone, Muslim or infidel, who manages to kill a lot of infidels.
As far as what is known at this time:
A search of Lubitz’s apartment in Dusseldorf found ripped-up medical leave notes that indicate he suffered from an illness and should not have been flying on the day of the crash.
Prosecutors in Dusseldorf said Friday that it appears he was hiding the illness from his employer:
Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors.
The fact there are sick notes saying he was unable to work, among other things, that were found torn up, which were recent and even from the day of the crime, support the assumption based on the preliminary examination that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and his professional colleagues. (Why the doctors did not notify the airline is unknown)
Police also searched Lubitz’s parent’s home in Montabaur and left with boxes of evidence.
The Dusseldorf prosecutors said they found no suicide note, no confession, and no indication of political or religious motivation. They did not specify the nature of the illness — whether it was physical or mental.
Now, back to the reason why Muslims ARE responsible for this mass murder of civilians: The knee-jerk reaction to 9/11 produced the ill-conceived reinforced cockpit door that had catastrophic consequences.
Independent A leading aviation security expert has condemned the rules on cockpit access as a “knee-jerk reaction to the events of 9/11” – which, he says, enabled the Germanwings co-pilot to commit the mass murder of the 149 other people on Flight 4U 9525.
Philip Baum, the editor of Aviation Security International magazine, said: “From the moment it became apparent that the Germanwings flight had made a controlled descent… with no Mayday, one feared that either pilot suicide or a hijack was the cause. The ill-thought reinforced cockpit door has had catastrophic consequences.”
Andreas Lubitz used his expertise to lock the captain out of the flight deck of the Airbus A320. He knew that the procedures implemented since 11 September 2001 enabled someone on the flight deck to take total control.
After the terrorist attacks, airlines began to install reinforced doors. Costing hundreds of thousands of pounds each, they are intruder-proof and bullet-proof. The system includes a keypad that is intended to allow authorised crew to enter the flight deck if the pilots become incapacitated. But a promotional video made by Airbus demonstrates how easy it is to deny access even to fellow crew who know the emergency code.
With a flick of a switch, someone with ill intent can deny access for a minimum of five minutes. Given that it was several minutes after leaving the flight deck before the locked-out captain would have begun the procedure for gaining access, the co-pilot had time to carry out his plan to crash the aircraft.
Mr Baum said that the philosophy of aviation security was skewed too far towards preventing a repeat of the 2001 attacks.
