The Renaissance of The ”Leftist International Terrorism”: First Up–Germans & The New Baader Meinhof offspring!


A conversation with Rainer Wendt these days is enough to make anybody nervous. Wendt is the head of the German Police Union, one of two police unions in the country. And he says that the recent series of attacks on German rail facilities in and near Berlin this week has convinced him that Germany is seeing the beginnings of a new wave of left-wing extremist violence.

He speaks of a “renaissance of the Red Army Faction,” the terror group which perpetrated dozens of killings in Germany over three decades starting in the early 1970s. We are witnessing the “beginnings of leftist terrorism,” he says.

He isn’t alone in his assessment. Hans-Werner Wargel, head of the office for the protection of the constitution in Lower Saxony, spoke of “parallels to the ‘Revolutionary Cells’ which were active into the 1990s” in comments to the daily Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung. The group he mentioned was responsible for several arson attacks over the course of two decades and was listed as a terror group by the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

The events in Germany have not yet been reported beyond her borders, but does seems to indicate a new beginning of a new age of leftist revolutionary activities in Europe (and perhaps, even the global), similar to the old 1970s phenomenon.

The Selected Headlines:

From Defence Lobbyists who pushed for British involvement in Libya and other areas, to DSK sexual crimes and so forth; also included is a documentary, and stories on ”occupy the globe”, to local national affairs, for example the once claimed stopped behaviour of local governments ”snooping” on the city residents bins etc, is still being practised, to US Politics.
