In recent weeks intelligence officials in Germany have been inundated with a rush of terror-threat warnings, NEWSWEEK has learned. But investigators are not sure how much of the information is genuine, and suspect some sources are making up stories in an effort to scam money out of German spy and law enforcement agencies nervous about a possible attack in the run up to the country's Sept. 27 elections.
Intelligence that has been flowing into German counterterrorism units includes jihadist video messages, electronic "chatter," and information from informants who claim to have specific details about impending strikes. The video messages are among the most alarming indicators, said a European counterterrorism official, who like others quoted in this article, asked for anonymity when discussing sensitive information. Especially disturbing is the number of videos that make specific threats against Germany, the official said, noting that it is much higher than in the past.

I notice they did not mention which terrorist group(S) they are worried about?
False flag to allow draconian laws?
terrorist attack to influence the elections? The current government did nothing to protect you? The current government succeeded to protecting you?
