They were directed less against those extremists among whom ISIS has found increasing support in recent months: Sunni groups that focus on the interdenominational struggle against the Shiite minority in the country.
The Pakistani Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan regularly says that ISIS is not present in Pakistan. The Pakistani military, on the other hand, emphasizes that they have a zero tolerance policy. IS fighters have also been caught in recent military offensives. Since almost exactly a year ago, Islamists raided an army-run school in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar and killed more than 130 children, the Pakistani army has been cracking down on Islamists.
That is also successful. The number of attacks and civilian deaths fell sharply in 2015. However, the operations were directed primarily against Taliban groups – those Islamist fighters who had carried out severe attacks on the state in recent years, including the army school in December last year. They were directed less against those extremists among whom ISIS has found increasing support in recent months: Sunni groups that focus on the interdenominational struggle against the Shiite minority in the country.
Lashkar-e Jangvi is the largest group to have sworn allegiance to ISIS. Other smaller groups include Ansar ul-Khalifa and Abtal ul-Islam from the city of Karachi and the Jundullah group from the southwest Pakistani province of Baluchistan. These groups offer fertile ground for the Islamic State, says security analyst Hussein Soharwordi, professor of international relations at Peshawar University. “” Here he can score points with his narrative of the Sunnis’ holy war against the Shiites. “” And he could find other followers. Above all, there is a risk that scattered members of the Taliban groups recently crushed by the military will simply join IS, as Pakistani Taliban commander Shahidullah Shahid had already done last year. Soon after, he was killed by a drone.
This year ISIS appointed the Pakistani Taliban fighter Hafiz Said Khan as his deputy in the region. Security circles said he was driven across the border into Afghanistan by military offensives, and many Pakistanis say they are tired of being perceived as the number one terror export country. “” We’re fighting our way out of this mess! “” They say. The school massacre a year ago contributed a lot to the fact that all tolerance towards Islamist violence had disappeared from society. To add a new legacy to its own legacy of extremism with the Islamic State – unthinkable. However, the Pew Research Institute only made a disturbing discovery in a study a month ago. Pew asked Muslims in eleven countries about their attitudes towards IS. Everywhere an overwhelming majority rejected the terrorist militia.
In Pakistan it was only around 30 percent. 62 percent had no opinion.

Prime Minister Erwin Teufel (CDU) announced on Tuesday announced to provide ten million DM for loans. A company could receive up to 60,000 DM. New suspected cases Meanwhile, two new suspected cases were reported in Baden-Württemberg.
The two cows come from the Ravensburg district, said the Ministry of Agriculture in Stuttgart. The two animals born in 1994 and 1997 were killed because of illness in early January. The final clarification should now be made by the Tübingen Federal Research Center for Virus Diseases. The ministry expects the result by the end of this week. There is also a first suspected case of BSE in Saarland.
According to the Ministry of Health, the affected cattle were only 25 months old. In the opinion of the ministry, this proves to be correct that slaughter animals under 30 months old are also tested for BSE in the Saarland.argumentative essay Farmers protest against culling During the removal of 75 cattle from a farm affected by BSE in Sigmarszell, Bavaria, around 100 farmers protested with 20 vehicles against the killing of entire herds in just one BSE case. The rally was peaceful.
The animal convoy was not blocked. Meanwhile, the debate about the mass killing of cattle, SPD parliamentary group vice-president Michael Müller, spoke out in favor of suspending the culling. “As long as the transmission and distribution routes have not been precisely researched, we should stop the killing of cattle, but isolate them accordingly,” he told the Cologne-based “Express” “. The new Minister for Consumer Protection and Agriculture, Renate Künast (Greens ), had declared on Monday, despite massive farmer protests, that in view of the current state of knowledge, she was sticking to the killing of entire cattle herds, even if only one animal is infected with BSE. A possible killing of 400,000 cattle has not yet been decided. North Rhine-Westphalia’s Environment Minister Bärbel Höhn said she supported Künast’s approach of taking time to make a final decision about such a mass slaughter. “” For many reasons, I believe, everyone is opposed to doing this killing, “said the Green politician on Deutschlandfunk. It is purely a market adjustment measure that has nothing to do with consumer safety. Soon 500 BSE cases? The Federal Institute for Meat Research expects 200 to 500 BSE cases in cattle in Germany by the end of the year. This prognosis is the result of comparing the number of BSE tests carried out so far with the number of diagnosed cases of illness and using empirical values from other EU countries, said the authority’s BSE expert, Manfred Gareis, of the “Berliner Zeitung” “.
In Germany, mad cow disease will not take on the same extent as in Great Britain, where a total of 170,000 cases of BSE have been registered so far. Supermarket chains in the criticism Agrarian State Secretary Gerald Thalheim blamed the large retail chains for the spread of BSE. The real pressure on the farmers to produce their products at the cheapest prices comes from the food retail trade, said the SPD politician of the Chemnitz “” Free Press “”. The chains “” have some degree of complicity in the BSE scandal “”. With the “” junk on the counter “” the health dangers for consumers were accepted.

With a whole series of suicide attacks, the places suddenly sink into chaos: More than 150 people are dragged with them to their deaths. A judge with an AfD party book forbids an extremism researcher from continuing to distribute publications about the NPD. The political scientist had also made critical assessments of the AfD.

The fight against terrorism and extremism is increasingly demanding from the Federal Criminal Police Office. The Interior Minister draws drastic consequences: According to the media report, he wants to create more jobs at the BKA.
And much more than previously thought. Would the secret service have been able to prevent attacks if it were also allowed to store data from young people under 16? So far this is prohibited.

But it could fall on her feet, explains political scientist Timo Lochocki at n-tv.de According to estimates, fewer and fewer Islamists are traveling to Iraq and Syria to fight for the Islamic State terrorist militia.
At the same time, there are more and more deserters, says a US general. That has to do with the fact that ISIS lacks money. Angela Merkel’s visit to the Counter-Terrorism Center in Berlin is intended to send a signal to unsettled citizens: the Chancellor is responsible for the country’s security.

Both companies are founding the world’s first bank for mobile payment and securities services. It will be called MobilBank. Mobilcom will contribute the technology and sales to the joint venture, in which the telecommunications group holds a majority of 51 percent. LB Baden-Württemberg will take over the banking-related processing of the future MobilBank.
The bank is expected to break even in two to three years.

According to Schmid, the investments should be in the lower double-digit million range. “We are open to other partners,” said Schmid. This could include internet service providers such as the Mobilcom subsidiary Freenet, but also other banks.
