Germanwings copilot is Muslim? How a rumor spreads

On Tuesday 3/24/15, Germanwings copilot Andreas Lubitz apparently flew his passenger jet into the ground, killing everyone on board.

A few hours later, the anonymous owner of the St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA blog posted this analysis:

...There is a boundary established by God that men must not pass over and that boundary is 15 cubits above the Mountain tops, or about 29,050 feet. This boundary is the same level that the waters of the deluge reached to cleanse the world of sin in the time of Noah. This 29,050 boundary is also the same level that the tower of Babel reached before God came down and paid a visit - pushing the tower over with his Finger.

This 29,050 ft boundary is the same level that the fire of the final conflagration will reached at the end of days to cleanse all the works of men, both holy and profane.

In order for the element of fire to do the will of God at the end of days - all the works of men must be at or below this 29,050 ft boundary in order to burn up in the fire of the final conflagration. ...

The latest air disaster took place today when the aircraft was flying above the 29,050 foot boundary that was established by God - the boundary that man must not pass over...

Couple of things:

  • Either the Germanwings pilot is a Muslims and committed Jihad Suicide by crashing the plane into the Mountain.
  • Or the pilot (non-Muslim) was under the influence of the demons who inhabit the atmosphere above the 29,050 ft boundary.

Too impossible to believe that demons can mess with airplanes? Yea...but the lot of you fools believe in space aliens and such stupid nonsense. ...

Personally I don't find this very persuasive, but that's just my opinion.

Two days later, the same blogger posted this follow-up: Muslim Convert Co-Pilot Andreas Günter Lubitz Committed Jihad By DELIBERATELY Slamming The Plane Into The Mountain! Murdering All On Board

...It was said that Lubitz had a Muslim girlfriend. It is unclear if she was still dating Lubitz at the time of the crash. It is unclear if he met the woman through his Muslims friends.

One said that Lubitz had broken off the relationship after he pledged to commit Jihad for Allah. ...

No source is given for the above statements.

...We do know that Lubitz trained at the Lufthansa Flight Training School in Bremen, Germany.

Bremen is home to the Mosque Masjidu-l-Furqan Mosque... This Mosque was raided by the police in December 2014...

Lubitz did his time in Bremen when the Mosque was under surveillance.

During his training Lubitz took a break - a several month break:

Carsten Spohr, CEO of Germanwings parent company, said in a press conference today that Lubitz "took a break in his training six years ago. Then he did the tests (technical and psychological) again. And he was deemed 100 percent fit to fly." "I am not able to state the reasons why he took the break for several months

I can because Lubitz converted to Islam during his break. ...

That's it. That's the complete evidence that Lubitz is Muslim.

And that should have been the end of it -- unsubstantiated speculation by a random weird blogger. Except that this latest blog post was picked up by one Michael Mannheimer, who quoted it on his personal blog on Thursday 3/26, originally at this link [dead link]. Although the post has been removed, as of right now it is still available in Google's cache. Here is an English translation, courtesy of Google:

Copilot Airbus accident aircraft was Islam convert. He controlled the machine deliberately against the Mountain

Germany has now thanks to the converts to Islam Andreas Lubitz his own 9/11

All evidence indicates that the copilot of misfortune machine in its six-month break during his training as pilots in German Wings converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of "radical", ie,. devout Muslims received for carrying out this mass murder, or withdrew the order from the book of terror, the Koran, of his own accord. However, as a radical mosque in Bremen is in the center of the investigation, in which the convert was staying often, it can be assumed that he -- as then Mohammed Atta in the attack against New York -- received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque. Converts are already the most important weapon of Islam. Because of them you can either outwardly or of their resume suggests that it often is particularly violent Muslims to Muslims. Thus Germany has to be specially 9/11, albeit in a reduced form. And so it is clear that Islam is a terrorist organization that are in accordance with §129a of the Criminal Code to prohibit and to follow their supporters. But nothing will happen. One can bet that the apologists (media, politics, "Islamic Studies") will agree to assign this act a "mentally unstable" man, and you can bet beyond that now, once again prayers like a mantra heruntergespult the mantra of supposedly peaceful Islam will. And worse still, the attacks of the mob left to those who have always warned against Islam, are angrier still be merciless. For now the German ash Islam supporters like never before with their backs to the wall.

Targeted the copilot of the German Wings Maker, Islam convert Andreas Günter Lubitz, a nuclear plant?

The wonders US website "St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA" in her latest article today in view of the fact that all seven nuclear reactors were located within just a minute deviation from the normal route. Fact: The co-pilot steered the plane intentionally in the mountains. Its mission would be were to control the aircraft in one of the seven active nuclear reactors, which were located just minutes away from the normal route. The following Atommeiler he could meet with little effort:

Centrale Nucléaire de Cruas Coordinates 44°37'59" N 4°45'24" E Centrale Nucléaire de Tricastin Coordinates 44°19'47" N 4°43'56" E Centrale Nucléaire de Saint-Alban Coordinates 45°24'16" N 4°45'19" E

Mannheimer's post then quotes the St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA blogpost "proving" that Lubitz was Muslim.

Michael Mannheimer (pseudonym -- his real name is Karl-Michael Merkle) is also a writer for the German blog Politically Incorrect, which is dedicated to opposing the "Islamisation of Europe".

Next step in the spread of this rumor (and I have to credit Jay Hathaway for this excellent bit of rumor-research): Speisa, a site specializing in outrageous news of the day -- and especially anti-Muslim outrageous news -- quoted Michael Mannheimer's post, crediting him as "a writer for German PI-News". Which makes him sound a little more impressive than a mere blogger quoting a religious nut. By this point, the original text from St Thomas Aquinas Versus NASA has been completely lost.

Next up: The Gateway Pundit:

GERMAN CO-PILOT WAS MUSLIM CONVERT – STAYED AT Bremen Mosque ... A German news website claims Andreas Lubitz was a Muslim convert. ...

Speisa is now upgraded to a "German news website", and The Gateway Pundit has completely flubbed the translation, saying that Lubitz stayed at the mosque in Bremen, when the original story was only that he stayed in Bremen which had a radical mosque.

From here, the mutant story has spread across the Net just like Silly Putty spreads through your little brother's hair when it gets too warm. (Don't ask me how I know about this.) And it will be just as hard to remove.
