According to news magazine Der Spiegel, the Uzbekistan-based terrorist group the Islamic Jihad Union has issued a statement announcing that Breininger and the group’s webmaster were killed on April 30. German intelligence sources believe the webmaster may be a Lower Saxony-born man called Ahmet M. who was deported to Turkey seven years ago.

Breininger, a Saarland native and member of IJU, had repeatedly appeared on terrorist videos calling for holy war against Germany. He is also suspected of having ties with the Sauerland cell terrorists sentenced in March for poltting to attack US diplomats, soldiers and civilians.

The statement sent to the magazine said the two were killed near the city of Mir Ali, but Ahmet M. was allegedly able to kill four soldiers with a grenade “despite his severe injuries” before he died.

Story continues below…

If the deaths are confirmed, Breininger, who changed his name to Abdulgaffar Almani, would be the fourth German Islamist to be killed in the region.

What can one say better than, Tschuss!

It was that man's own choice on which side to stand. He chose become an islamist, to betray his own people and to fight against them.

It would make sense if the governments of all Western nations would round up their local islamist trouble makers from their streets, mosques and jails, and relocate them to the islamist areas of Pakistan:

- they can be where they long and publicly insist to live, i.e. within an islamist environment

- they can live the mandatory lifestyle of their idol, i.e. legally raid caravans, practice pedophilia, inbreeding, and oppress, torture, maim, kill everything which does not bow to their cult (all as publicly demanded by them)

- they will eventually meet their idol to be eternally occupied with an endless array of eternal virgins (as publicly stated by them)

- they will not be the West's social, cultural and financial menace anymore.

It has to be made sure to keep them there and lock the borders.

Dear Eric,

I was overjoyed to hear of your early demise.

Dear Traitor,

I hope you awakened to find yourself being pawed by legions of male virgins eager to take your fruit. Repeatedly. Without lubricant. Forcefully.

You are a worthless traitor to your country and your people, and you deserve all the pain of the damned for the rest of eternity.

I am confident that every soldier who died at your hand will feast on ambrosia and sit upon a throne of gold in the Kingdom hereafter.

Burn in hell, you filthy bastard.

I wonder what it was that turned him to Islam, and against his home country.
19:36 May 3, 2010 by whatzup
There is no explanation, some folks are just peculiar. Others like this lad are very peculiar. Maybe he had a lover in the Taliban.

Good Riddance to that murderous pig. Trying to justify his irrational, disgusting beliefs through violence.

And "LancashireLad", he joined islam for the same reason cat stevens joined i.e. they have some how convinced themselves that islamic jihadism is some sort of brown/black power movement coz its anti-american and uses anti-capitalist rhetoric.

The irony is that people who earn at-least a 1000 euro or pounds per month, think they are lashing out against their poverty and misery by going to places like pakistan or afghanistan and killing those country's soldiers who im sure dont earn more than a 50 euro a month.

Why all these scum bags be exported to Pakistan? Don't they better fit to countries where they were born and became extremist?

Well, yes, it's weird when we learn of such people. Here in America, some individuals have turned against America too. It's difficult to imagine how an individual could justify iniquity.

This is another reason why the benefits of nationalism should be taught. Can you imagine a Germany, or an America, in which everyone had an extraordinary amout of respect for their neighbor? Well, we would literally have perfect nations.

Thanks Pakistan!!! Just glad he's dead. Rot in hell traitor.

No Logic Guy we would have Stepford nations.
00:47 May 5, 2010 by Prufrock2010
This dude's going to be disappointed to find out that there aren't 69 virgins waiting for him. Glad he's dead. Hope it was excruciatingly painful. One down, another 1.3 billion to go.

I could understand being ex patriots but come on, build a bridge and get over it like men, I mean look at him he can barely grow a mustache. I wish Hitler hated Muslims not Jews, could have gotten the inbred s while we had a chance

First of all, shouldnt the title read "German Islamist TERRORIST

what is worse, the fact that he turned to islam, or that he is a terrorist?

First of all, shouldnt it read...
18:49 May 5, 2010 by michael4096
Well, I guess he will be sharing the after-life with von stauffenberg, mandela, gandhi, paul rivere and quite a few other terrorists and traitors of their time. The conversation should be outstanding even if the virgins aren't up to much.

Don't compare men those men this waste of flesh. This idiot wants to put in with a lot that want to deprive women of basic rights, ban music, endorse child rape within "marriage", and force everyone to believe in the same god.
00:38 May 6, 2010 by Prufrock2010
I agree. You can't equate a screwed up expatriate punk jihadist terrorist with courageous people who fought and died for the very opposite principles this deranged moherf*cker decided to kill innocent people for. Good riddance to this piece of sh*t.
