DAILYKENN.com -- A hand grenade was thrown into a refugee center in Germany Thursday night.
Authorities said it was mere "luck" that prevented the grenade from exploding.
The media characterized the attack as "hate and violence," though the mainstream media never refers to the massive rape attacks by Muslim males as "hate and violence."
The failed attack occurred in Villingen-Schwenningen.
A hand grenade was thrown into a refugee shelter in Germany overnight as officials said attacks against asylum seekers in the country hit a new level of “hate and violence”.
Police in the southern town of Villingen-Schwenningen said it was “just luck” that the device did not explode when it landed at 1.15am.
Around 20 asylum seekers were sleeping inside the building at the time and were evacuated while a bomb squad destroyed it in a controlled explosion.
Heiko Maas, the German justice minister, said the attack represented a new level of “hate and violence” that must be addressed by local and federal authorities.
“Grenades are already being thrown at refugee homes - we can't wait until there is someone dead,” he added.
“We need to do everything we can to ensure xenophobic crimes are more rapidly solved and punished more severely.”
A police spokesperson said there were no immediate implications of a motive and that investigators are following “all avenues” as forensic tests and interviews are carried out.
