Tony Blair is getting a rough time from the media and rightly so, yet Mama Merkel is recieving awards left, right and centre.
Angela Merkel [11/7/2016]: "In part, the refugee flow was even used to smuggle terrorists" into Europe.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann:

He came two years ago to Germany and have applied for asylum.
The application was rejected a year ago but was allowed to stay temporarily because of the war.
The Syrian had already tried twice to commit suicide.
He was therefore already housed in a Psychiatric Hospital.
was living in a flat provided by authorities.

Kershaw takes anything to fuel hatred !
Wow. Guy has an opinion on terror attacks and those who dominate them and is accused of 'hatred' by yourself.

BBC: No clear motive. It is unclear whether he was trying to commit suicide or blow people up.
