It barely made the news, perhaps a footnote here, so I suspect probably nothing at all across the pond, but last week an asylum center in Duesseldorf was torched by some of the very refugees it was sheltering.
"Ever more details regarding the torching of the asylum center in Duesseldorf emerge. On Wednesday evening, the two 26-year old North African prime suspects were arrested. Since the beginning of 2016, police had to intervene 89 times in the now burned up hall, the two would have been the instigators in many of the riots leading to the interventions. The plan to torch the building would have originated, according to Express, with "Fat Hamza" (photo), who was angered because he did not get chocolate pudding. Therefore, already on Monday Police had to be deployed to contain the group gathering around the firebrand leader.
On Tuesday, asylum cheater Hamza and his sidekick, actually two Moroccans pretending to come from Syria, were pissed off because security had not awoken them for breakfast before the sun came up; yet at noon the whole gang around their fat boss demanded more variety at the buffet, this despite ramadan. Since the guards were slow to respond, Hamza gave the "Feuer Frei" order. Schnapps was poured on a mattress and set alight. Result: around 10 million EUR damage, because Hamza from Casablanca did not get chocolate pudding."

This is Hamza, a 26-year old refugee from Casablanca. Casablanca is a city in Morocco which reportedly lies somewhere smack in the middle of Syria.
Hamza is simultaneously a world-renowned microbiologist, a nuclear physicist and a rocket scientist who likes to play Beethoven on his piano, paid for with the receipts from lectures he gives on architectural topics, and who in his scarce spare time, when he's not too tired from working his fat ass off for the wellbeing of the good citizens of Germany, writes poetry.
As we know by now, he also has a serious knack for chocolate pudding.
