Summary

A mob of 1,000 men who chanted “Allahu Akhbar” set fire to Germany’s oldest church on New Years Eve in Dortmund.

Disproof

The report was attributed to local news site Ruhr Nachrichten, which answered by accusing Breitbart of “using our online reports for fake news, hate and propaganda.” In fact, St.Reinold is not Germany's oldest church - that would be the Cathedral of Trier - and a small fire had started on some netting on scaffolding around the church, not the roof, due to one firework. And while Breitbart states that the "fireworks were launched at" the church, there was no indication from local news outlets or from the fire services that the fire had been started intentionally. The fire was small and lasted 12 minutes before firefighters put it out, Ruhr Nachrichten reports. Police told local media that overall it was a quiet night.bit.ly/2igqfjC,

The EU will impose a terror tax on Bulgaria and other member states, similar to the terror tax introduced in France.

Disproof

There is no official indication whatsoever, that the EU or Bulgaria will adopt any such measure. More importantly, the EU does not have a direct role in raising taxes or setting tax rates. The amount of tax you pay in each member state is decided by the government in every member state, not the EU. bit.ly/2ij9kNm,
