Cui Bono, meaning 'to whose profit,' is a key forensic question in legal and police investigations: finding out who has a motive for a crime by carefully examining who will benefit the most. Tazeen Hasan examines who is the actual beneficiary from the terror attacks in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.

Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building in 1933, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has ruled out the reversal of her open-door migrant policy despite a fierce backlash after it emerged that two recent terror attacks and a third killing were carried out by men who had entered the country as refugees. Notably, the Munich killer that claimed 10 lives including himself was influenced by the far-right ideology of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik, who killed 74 people at a vacation resort in 2011. The responsibility of axe attack and backpack bomb incident has been accepted by ISIS but no one is killed in these incidents except the alleged attackers themselves. But all of the four attacks are seen as a consequence of Merkel's open-door policy. Merkel's opponents, the political right and Neo-Nazi ultranationalists organization like Pediga are using every measure to incite hate and intolerance against asylum seekers. Consequently, violence against refugees has risen to unprecedented heights.

Anti-refugee parties, be it Pegida, AFD, or NDP, are openly using Nazi slogans without thinking that this ideology has ruined Germany in the past. Recently Bachmann posted a self-caricature of himself on Facebook depicting himself as Hitler with a caption, "He is back."

Right-wing politicians need to understand that open-door policy is not charity for the humanitarian cause but an investment in Germany's future. Germany has one of the lowest birth-rates in the world and the imbalance between old and young population is threatening the economic survival. The cultural landscape of Germany is definitely changing but Germans and on the whole Europe need to learn to celebrate human values of tolerance and diversity for their own survival. The clash-of-civilization rhetoric will ruin our beautiful world.

Bavarian Premier Horst Seehofer, a fierce opponent of open-door refugee policy remarked against Muslim migrants as early as 2010

It should be noted that three out of the four attacks that have rattled German society took place in Bavaria. Is it a coincidence that Horst Seehofer, the premier of Bavaria, despite being an ally, is considered to be the fiercest opponent of Merkel and one who had even threatened to file a constitutional complaint against Merkel over her migrant policy. He had also sent a busload of refugees back to Berlin to show his annoyance over the refugee issue. Seehofer's anti-refugee stance is not something new, that emerged after the terrorist attacks. His statement against Arab and Turk migrants had been strongly criticized widely as early as 2010.

Apart from the recent attacks, Cologne rape scandal also fueled hatred and right wing successfully exploited it in March Elections. Is it also a coincidence that all of a sudden, the not-yet-settled migrants from Syria and elsewhere got mad and began a spate of violent attacks despite Merkel's welcoming attitude towards them and her guarantees that they would get asylum? Do the Syrian refugees have any particular score to settle in Germany? On the contrary, even a child can understand that they have every reason to bend over backwards to cooperate with the German government and the civil administration. Instead of investigating who is getting the benefit of these attacks, media is repeated Neo-Nazi rhetorics and accusations against refugees ad nauseam.

One of the winners may be Merkel's political rivals in Germany and Europe who is considered one of the most powerful European politician in history.

Among the winners, one group may be the political rivals of Merkel, as these attacks that have rocked Germany recently have suspiciously occurred just three months prior to the September elections, and their timing could not have been politically more than ideal. Moreover, they took place at a time when Merkel's popularity graph had risen to a record high in the last two years due to Brexit. Merkel can be truly considered to be one of the most powerful European politicians in history. Her writ runs far beyond Germany's borders. No wonder the anti-migrant organisation and media are making good are using the four closely spaced violent attacks as a proof of the failure of her open-door migrant policy to bring down Merkel's popularity a notch or two.

Teenage girl admits making up rape claim against Arab and North African migrants but still sparked fury like Cologne scandal

But the greatest winner in this charade of on order terrorism is a group of anti-refugee Neo-Nazi racist organisations whose popularity rockets to unimaginable heights followings any terror attack in the west. These racist parties have reacted violently against the asylum seekers even to the extent of concocting stories of rape attacks by migrants.

The German-Russian teenager admitted that rape story was concocted but Russian embassy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov demanded a full explanation from German authorities

This is evident from the concocted and totally fabricated story of a 13-year-old Russian-German girl has admitted making up a story about being kidnapped and raped by Arab and North African migrants in a case that triggered a furor in Germany and briefly embroiled Berlin police in a spat with the Kremlin. The case prompted hundreds of Russian Germans to protest in Berlin over the weekend, calling for their children to be protected from "migrant violence."

This gives strength to the scepticism that the reports of the Cologne rape scandal were also fabricated and faked by Pegiaa and workers of its clone organisation. It is much more than ludicrous to claim the possibility of about 1000 men belonging to a specific, marginalised community like asylum seekers collectively attacking German ladies in public at the city's busy railway station on a specific evening. According to a BBC reports from local and international newspapers, the situation in a neighbouring German city was completely different according to the police.
