Obama loved to call terrorist attacks in the States workplace violence.
The Germans have gone far beyond that. The Berlin Christmas terror truck attack is being treated like an ordinary car accident.
THE parents of a woman killed in the Berlin Christmas market attack have told of their sorrow that the incident has been branded an “accident” barring them from claiming compensation.
aetano and Giovanna Di Lorenzo’s daughter, Fabrizia Di Lorenzo, 31, was an Italian transport specialist working in Berlin and was among the people killed in the deadly terror attack that also left 50 injured.
But her family said that they were shocked to find out that a German law would prevent them from claiming compensation for her death.
The law, from 1985, excludes compensation for damages caused to victims of violent crimes committed “with a motor vehicle or a trailer.”
Her mum, Giovanna Di Lorenzo blasted: “How can they say it was an ordinary car accident? We feel cheated by those who do not want to acknowledge they were wrong and do not want to prevent that from happening again in the future”.
Ms Di Lorenzo died along with 11 other people when ISIS fanatic Anis Amri, launched a hideous attack on the Christmas market on Breitscheidplatz Square on December 19 driving an articulated lorry through stalls packed with visitors.
Her daughter was initially declared missing by her family but later declared dead after her body, mobile phone and travel pass were found at the scene of the attack.
They said: “They were always available, they helped us with Fabrizia’s friends all the time, specially because we do not speak German. We felt the State was with us.”
But they slammed German officials cold behaviour towards them during their time of grief.
Mrs Di Lorenzo said: “If we exclude the cop who took my DNA without saying a word. They never contacted us, they didn’t provide us an interpreter and they left us alone. We had to ask constantly and insist. They did the same with the other families, even German ones.”
he added that the first contact with German authorities after the massacre was on February 17, when Joachim Gauck met them in Berlin.
The President of the German Republic was forced to apologize to the families of the victims who reported an “inefficient and incapable Germany, despite its international image”.
Ms Di Lorenzo was buried by her family and friends at a moving ceremony on December 26 at Sulmona Cathedral, in Sulmona, Abruzzo, Italy.
The answer to this particular issue appears to be to make a change in German law that would make clear that the victims of Anis Amri’s truck attack were victims of terrorism.
The longer term solution to Germany’s problems is the removal of all Muslims from the country–a total Muslim ban. Since the country lacks the political will to do that, then surely there would be public support for removing all “rufugees” with criminal records, as President Trump is doing in the U.S.
