    GERMAN CO-PILOT WAS MUSLIM CONVERT


    A German news website claims Andreas Lubitz was a Muslim convert.
    Speisa.com reported:

    According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Germany now has its own 9/11, thanks to the convert to Islam, Andreas Lubitz.

    Translation from German:

    All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. As a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he – as Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.

    Uh-huh. Sure. Let's say he is a Muslim convert. In only 6 months he's going to be radicalized?

    Anything is possible.

    If his mental/emotional state was fragile, and he was open to the influence of those types of Islamics... perhaps.

    How long was his Islamic history before the alleged radicalization?
    He may have already been well on his way to a global Jihad mentality (assuming its true he is/was radicalized).

    It is possible ... after all you get pretty radicalized with almost everything I write, and you don't need six-months to write a radical, adverse or confrontational rebuttal or accusation :laugh: do you?

    Prosecutors said Friday that among the items found at Lubitz’s home were several doctors’ notes stating that he was too ill to work, including on the day of the crash; one of the notes had been torn up. These documents “support the preliminary assessment that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and colleagues,” the prosecutors said in a statement.

    The German investigators said they had not found a suicide note or “any indication of a political or religious” nature among the documents from Lubitz’s apartment.*

    I was JUST telling someone yesterday that some kind of way, a connection to Islam is gonna be made by the powers that be.

    This sounds very manufactured because people need another reason for him doing what he did.

    This just seems too convenient.

    Mental illness and Islamic extremism are not mutually exclusive.

    I would say that they are synergistic.

    I think you've got an international effort to be at war with Iran and Islam because it's profitable.

    Which one of the G5+1 will be struck next by the Muslims? Will this new revelation hinder the negotiations? Because some kind of way, I also expect him to now have a connection to Iran or ISIL.

    You could say that about any extremist. Look at that Westboro group that claims to be Christian.

    I know. Go back and read the OP more closely. You will read:

    1. All evidence points to Lubitz being a Muslim. No evidence is given but still the article states:

    1a. He did it on direct orders of a radical Muslim. (note that article implies all devout Muslims are radical)

    Or

    1b. He did it by obeying the Quran (called the book of terror in the article )

    Or

    1c. He did it on his own accord.

    Well, if all evidence is in why can't the writer make up his mind as to what motivated Lubitz to do it?

    Article then falsely states the investigation is centered on a mosque in Bremen, Germany and it can be ASSUMED he got his instructions from the "vicinity" of the mosque.

    Just a terrible hit piece and nothing more than a conspiracy theory. Carpro typically doesn't post crap like this.

    I suggest you look up the definition of "radicalized". Oops, there I go again, correcting you again. :)

    It could be.

    UoT, ITL, Zaac, I like you guys enough, but what if this turns out to be true ? I see more and more stories pointing out that this guy was planning something.

    Well then he would be a muslim terrorist who is now dead. This crash is a disturbing tragedy. Trying to make a political issue out of it is tacky.

    The voice recorder from the cockpit is silent. The only thing being heard is Lubitz’s breathing. The pattern for virtually all Islamic terrorist actions is to yell out "Allah Akbar". The absence of such a cry in this instance is telling.

    And presumptive. There's no real concrete proof, and the thread title leads you to believe there will be.


    But carpro's source clearly states the news about him being a convert broke from Germany.

    There is no news in the OP. It's a wild accusation with no proof or evidence.

    If you read the embedded links in the OP the only hint you will find that Lubitz was a Muslim is this:


    Apparently from the comments at German PI – Andreas Lubitz was Muslim convert from his Facebook page.

    So the "proof" is reader's comments.
