While German authorities are scrambling to find out as much about the background of Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot of a Germanwings Airbus A320 that Lubitz apparently deliberately crashed the into the French Alps Tuesday morning, killing all 150 people on board, conflicting reports have emerged regarding a “mystery illness” from which Lubitz might have suffered, rumors of a romantic breakup, and even his recent conversion to Islam.
On Friday, the Dusseldorf public prosecutor’s office said that documents found in Lubitz’s apartment “indicate an existing illness as well as adequate medical treatment thereof,” although they have not clarified said illness, treatment, nor how it may have affected his mental state or ability to perform his professional duties.
Police reportedly found “something of significance” at the apartment, yet they haven’t clarified this either, other than it was not a suicide note.

At the same time, a German news website claims that Andreas Lubitz was a Muslim convert.
According to Michael Mannheimer, a writer for German PI-News, Andreas Lubitz was a recent convert to Islam.
Translation from German:
All evidence indicates that the copilot of Airbus machine in his six-months break during his training as a pilot in Germanwings, converted to Islam and subsequently either by the order of “radical”, ie. devout Muslims , or received the order from the book of terror, the Quran, on his own accord decided to carry out this mass murder. 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 Mohammed Atta, in the attack against New York – received his instructions directly from the immediate vicinity of the mosque.
Converts are the most important weapon of Islam. Because their resume do not suggests that they often are particularly violent Muslims. Thus Germany now has its own 9/11, but 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 it and to investigate its followers. But nothing will happen. One can bet that the apologists (media, politics, “Islamic Scholars”) will agree to assign this an act of a “mentally unstable” man, and you can bet that now, once again the mantra of how supposedly peaceful Islam is will continue. And worse still, the attacks by the left against those who have always warned against Islam, will be angrier and merciless.
For now the German Islam supporters like never before have their backs against the wall.

Apparently from the comments at German PI – Andreas Lubitz was Muslim convert according to his Facebook page, which has reportedly been taken down.
Without jumping to imprudent conclusions, reluctance to confirm Lubitz’s Muslim conversion would be characteristic of the liberal press, both in Europe and the United States. However, at this time, while no reliable confirmation of such a conversion has surfaced, the vague and conflicting nature of the reports coming out of official channels is disturbing.
