University of Applied Sciences in Mittweida, Saxony offers courses in Arts, Science, Management and Engineering. Almost 200 asylum seekers are currently housed in a gymnasium there.

In Mittweida, a city in the Mittelsachsen district of Saxony, three women were attacked yesterday within a thirty-minute time frame – by a single perpetrator. The police confirmed to the Free Press that the suspect is a 24-year-old man from Syria. He had attacked the women in succession, aged 30, 50 and 64 years, in the early morning in the city center.

Because the victims fought back fiercely and witnesses came to help, two of the women were only slightly injured, but came up with a fright. The offender had tried to rape and rob them. The witnesses were also able to give the police descriptions which led to the provisional arrest of the perpetrator.

The culprit was neither flashy nor intoxicated on drugs during the attempted robberies: "A drug test performed by the police was negative. He also had little alcohol in the blood, reported the Kopp-Verlag.

The text of the police message:

"On Wednesday morning, a 24-year-old attacked three women in the urban area. On the Lutherstraße at 5:50 a.m. he tried to molest a 30-year-old. Because the woman put up strong resistance and screamed, a witness became aware of what was happening. When the witness called to the alleged perpetrator that he would inform the police, the man let the woman go and she was able to escape.

At 6:10 o'clock on Technikumplatz, the same alleged perpetrator demanded sex from a 50-year-old. When she refused and walked on, he pulled her to the ground. A 26-year-old man came to her aid. The 24-year-old let go of her and disappeared.

Subsequently, he came up to a 63-year-old, asking for money. When the woman walked on, he tried to snatch her handbag. The 63-year-old struck the alleged perpetrator with her umbrella. He then ran away. From the physical descriptions of the witnesses, a 24-year-old could be provisionally arrested at 7 o'clock. The suspect will be brought before the judge on Thursday. The investigations are continuing."

Mittweida is an idyllic town in mittelsachsen, located around 60 kilometers from Dresden. A university town with almost 15,000 inhabitants, it is home to about 6300 registered students, the largest university in Saxony. In a gymnasium at the university 140-180 asylum seekers are currently quartered, according to local residents. In addition, the placement of each of 140 and 130 people in containers and apartments is planned.


In an interview with ZDF television Friday, [Angela Merkel] said she "cannot unilaterally define upper limits" and insisted that her efforts to tackle the problem in patient diplomacy with Turkey and others will bear fruit. She said she and the government "have a grip on the situation."  [By unilaterally, she means apart from the rest of the EU and eurozone.She is a 100% EU player.]

"I am fighting for ... the plan I have to tackle the causes of people fleeing," she said. "I am not the first chancellor who had to fight for something, and not the first who hasn't received approval from the first day."

Merkel shrugged aside Schaeuble's avalanche comparison, saying that "there are points where I see things differently. I don't think in such pictures."

"I am in favor of our showing a friendly face in Germany."

Satisfaction with Merkel has declined from a stellar 75 percent in April to a still-respectable 49 percent this month, according to polling by the Infratest dimap agency for ARD television, while support for Merkel's conservative bloc slipped from 41 percent to 37 percent.

"I don't think she can change her basic position [on refugees] — that would be seen as opportunistic again," said Manfred Guellner, the head of the Forsa polling agency. "What she can do, and what she apparently is doing, is take small steps to ratchet up (policy) without her basic position being affected."

Guellner noted that "many people haven't seen any refugees" so far, meaning that "at the moment, it's something abstract for most people." [Most are still in refugee camps or on the way. But the point is: Merkel's open door policy is not going to change. Her "plan" is to get all EU members to cave in to a multicultural Europe. We must hope for a regime change in Germany, but further to the right, NOT to the left.]
