All crimes by Muslim immigrants who came to Germany under Angela Merkel’s “Welcome Refugees” policy should be given appropriate attention by the press. Thank God that the horrific rape and murder of Susanna Feldman is getting that attention. It might do some good in the sense of making Germans realize they’ve invited monsters into their home.
The issue is one of fairness in reporting similar crimes committed by so-called refugees against people who are not Jewish.

A failed Iraqi asylum seeker suspected of raping and murdering a teenage girl in Germany before fleeing has confessed to the crime and was sent back to Germany, Iraqi police and media reports said Friday.
Ali Bashar, 20, who is believed to have strangled the Jewish 14-year-old Susanna Maria Feldman after sexually assaulting her, was arrested by Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq on Friday.
Despite the absence of a formal extradition treaty between Iraq and Germany, he was put on a Lufthansa flight to Germany from the Kurdish regional capital Arbil, German media reports said.
He was expected to face a remand hearing after landing in Frankfurt, the reports said.
An autopsy showed Feldman was the victim of a sexual and violent attack, Reuters said, quoting police saying there was no evidence her religion had been a factor.
The arrest came after an outcry in Germany as police hunting the fugitive admitted that Bashar had fled with his family.
They managed to fly out of Duesseldorf airport even though the names on their identity documents did not match those on their airline tickets, police said, adding that their identity was only checked against the photos on the papers.
Bashar also turned out to have chalked up a long police record over his less than three years in Germany and should have been expelled months ago.
“The government should beg for forgiveness from Susanna’s parents,” said the top-selling tabloid Bild.
“The only thing that is worse than the murder of a child is the murder of a child by a criminal who should not have been in our country.
“Crimes like these are explosive for our society because they are the bitter proof that this country does not have sufficient control over who is residing within our borders.”
The newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung said “it is time to wonder how far the credibility of the government is being undermined when it is surrounded by so many absurdities.”
Revealing that Feldman and her mother were members of the Jewish community, the Central Council of Jews in Germany urged a “swift and comprehensive” probe into the case and tough consequences for the perpetrator.
Bashar arrived in Germany in 2015 along with his parents and five siblings.
He should have been deported after his request for asylum was rejected in December 2016, but he obtained a temporary residence permit pending his appeal.
During this time, he got into trouble with the police on several occasions, including for alleged robbery, possession of an illegal switchblade and fights.
He was also among the suspects of the sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl living in the same refugee shelter.
Twitter has noticed the double standard in reporting.
