No Breitbart, a Muslim mob didn't set fire to Germany's oldest church

The German press including the German edition of The Local tries (in vain) to do some damage limitation on this story. 

At New Year’s Eve celebrations in Dortmund a mob of more than 1,000 men chanted ‘Allahu Akhbar’, launched fireworks at police, and set fire to a historic church.

Apparently the church that caught light, St Reinold's, isn't the oldest in Germany. So thats wrong for a start.

It wasn't really the church roof that caught light but netting on the scaffolding around the roof.

And it was only a little blaze which the fire brigade soon put out.

It wasn't done deliberately; the firework(s) concerned were being fired at the police.

There is nothing significant in the men concerned being young foreign men. 

When Muslims yell Allah Akbar it is no more significant in the scheme of things than a Christian saying Amen. 

Ruhr Nachrichten also accuses Breitbart of overemphasizing the fact that the celebrating Syrians chanted “allahu akbar” - which means God is great.

“This statement is a Muslim prayer as normal as ‘Amen’ in the church,” Ruhr Nachrichten's editor wrote. “Fake news producers are connecting the groups of people in Leeds Square to [terrorist] attacks… The fact is: there was no sign that terrorism was being celebrated in Dortmund.”

Methinks the lugenpresse doth protest too much, or protesteth (against what is happening in Europe) not enough. Amen.
