“People behead for all sorts of reasons,” to quote the eminently quotable Marc Lamont Hill. The reason why 33-year-old Mourtala Madou, a Muslim refugee living in Hamburg, Germany, decapitated his own 1-year-old daughter at a train station before stabbing his girlfriend, the child’s mother, remains obscure.

But the crime itself is not what makes the story newsworthy. It is, rather, the fact that the German government banned media coverage of the brutal slaying. Jihad Watch via YourNewsWire reports:

Angela Merkel’s pro-migrant government has banned German media from reporting on a barbaric crime involving a Muslim migrant who allegedly beheaded his one-year-old baby daughter on a train station platform in Hamburg.


The suspect allegedly stabbed the infant from behind, while she was sitting in her stroller, and then severed her neck. He then allegedly stabbed his girlfriend in the chest before fleeing the scene, dumping the murder weapon in a train station trash can. He was later arrested

The woman, a mother of four other children, later died at hospital of her injuries.

Video footage has been uploaded to the internet showing the aftermath of the brutal and senseless double murder that was described as “very targeted” by police spokesman Timo Zill and an “honor killing” by witnesses. …

As the New York Times reported in June, German Chancellor Angela Merkel “has faced an increasingly virulent mutiny over the issue” of immigration, with her own interior minister, Horst Seehofer, leading the populist movement to close Germany’s currently open border. In 2015, Germany took in more than 1.1 million presumed asylum seekers, or roughly the entire population of Houston. Native German citizens faced with an uptick in crime and an overall degradation in the quality of living, began a mass exodus the following year.
