Three militant islamists have been arrested in Germany. The German Defence minister said an attack was imminent. And the target was the US military base at Ramstein and Frankfurt airport.

Federal prosecutors said the three were suspected members of "an Islamist terrorist organisation", but gave no further details.

Defence minister Franz Josef Jung said the men were suspected of planning attacks against a US military base in Ramstein, and Frankfurt airport.

"There was an imminent threat," he told German television.

This is major. Hopefully these terror attacks have actually been foiled. 11 arrests doesn't sound like much...

CNN: Germany arrests 3 terror suspects

It also said the men were arrested Tuesday evening and were close to carrying out the attacks


Ramstein Air Base is located in western Germany's Rhineland-Palatinate state and is about 125 kilometers (75 miles) southeast of Frankfurt. The base is a major transit point for the U.S. military into the Middle East and Central Asia.

The German terror arrests came a day after Danish police arrested eight "militant Islamists," accusing them of storing "unstable explosives."

Looks like the islamofascists are increasing their activity...but it is good news to know that arrests were made period.

Yeah....the CIA is really busy........just setting the US up for a false-flag operation. Bush is a crafty devil......

I figure I'd just beat the 'anti-us/Bush crowd.

This is another reminder that Al Qeada is still very active at attempts to attack the US and it's interests as well as it's allies.

But as most on this site will say: "nothing to see here....move along".

They planned 'massive' and 'imminent' attacks on US targets in Germany. Two of the three were German converts to Islam and the third was a Turk. 30 locations across Germany were raided. They were members of a terror cell called the Islamic Jihad Union, and they were apparently trained in Pakistan.

German police arrested three suspected Islamic militants who were planning "massive" and "imminent" attacks on American targets in Germany, authorities said Wednesday.


The suspects, two German converts to Islam, ages 22 and 29, and a 29-year-old Turk, appeared before a federal magistrate Wednesday. They were picked up Tuesday after raids in 30 locations across Germany, Ziercke said.

Ziercke said the men are members of a German terror cell called the Islamic Jihad Union and received terrorist training in Pakistan.

Explosive Power Equal to 550-kilogrammes of TNT

The German terrorists had materials to put together a bomb "with an explosive power equal to 550-kilogrammes of TNT"...
That sounds like a small suitcase nuke!
