Union parties: fighting terrorism or security restructuring?

(GermanPolicy.com) – After a knife attack had occurred in an ICE express train, the CDU-CSU has demanded that security policy be given more weight in German politics. “It is clear that it will be a great challenge for our security institutions in the future to recognize possible radicalization of individuals in good time, which often takes place in the quiet,” said the deputy Union parliamentary group leader in the Bundestag, Thorsten Frei (CDU), according to media reports. The exploratory paper of the traffic light parties did not contain any position on dealing with extremists nor the fight against terrorism. These two points probably represented the greatest threat to domestic security. The failure of the traffic light parties in this regard “reveals a blatant weakness in the future government,” said Frei, adding that instead of pointing out approaches on the subject, the SPD, Greens and FDP had announced a “general overhaul of the security architecture.”
