On Monday, December 19th, a horrifying terrorist attack occurred on German soil. An attacker drove a truck through the crowded stalls of Berlin’s Christmas market. The truck hit and killed 12 people, as well as injuring 50 others. The suspect has been identified as a Pakistani, but he has been released after interrogation, and police have been frantically searching for the real suspect. Isis has claimed responsibility for the attack. This and recent terror attacks have had a profound impact on Germany’s viewing of Chancellor Merkel, and her whole immigrant policy.
