Germany allowed 1 million Muslims to immigrate into their country as the escalation of war has devastated African and Middle Eastern states. Those numbers added to the internal population of about 3.7 million. By contrast, Germany is home to roughly 120,000 Jews. And anti-Semitism has, not surprisingly escalated. In 2016, Germany ‘recorded’ 1468 anti-Semitic attacks. In one university poll, 62% of the Jews reported that they face antagonistic anti-Semitic attacks – daily. But the media prefers to target the AfD for rhetoric, despite the fact that they have a paltry membership of just 29,000.
Merkel’s response is to require school youth to make a trip to the Nazi camps a mandatory curriculum. But most Muslim refugees aren’t integrated into the school system, so how will this solve anything?
Worse, she is proposing building a synagogue in the middle of Berlin’s most prevalent Muslim neighborhood! Help me here!
In the midst of these measures, there are increasing issues with Islamaphobia in Germany that Merkel sees as a direct correlation with the rise of – AfD, all 29,000 members comprising; .6% of the Muslim population in Germany, or .03% of the total population of Germany.
If Muslims wanted to integrate they wouldn’t live in Muslim districts.
When immigrants come to ‘any’ country, their first line of defense is to group together where they find a commonality, a language, a shared culture. Cities across the world have created Polish districts, Chinatowns, Irish districts, Muslim districts, German districts, black neighborhoods, etc… It is normal. Integration is not. Christians like to befriend other Christians. Democrats routinely drop Republican friends when they discover their affiliation. Couples alienate divorcees.
I can attest to some of the above personally.
Syrian orphan children cannot be adopted outside of Muslim families. Integration is not permitted.
There are by far more examples of why it doesn’t work than when it has worked.
Germany now stands at the forefront of hate speech laws.
The origin of hate speech laws is unfortunately, forgotten. Having its core in Communism, the laws were designed to curb freedom of speech so as to protect the government from any dissent. But Germany seems to have conveniently forgotten this history lesson and imposed these laws to the extent that US citizens are barred from entry into the country due to their blog content.
But Germany isn’t content with simply barring entry to individuals, they have barred social media content that they deem in “their opinion” is not appropriate. As such, they have instituted Communist Laws and Agendas similar to “Sharia Law”.
And Germany is not alone.
The UK has a history of barring activists from entering their borders (Pamela Geller, Martin Sellner, and Lauren Southern), although they embrace refugees who commit egregious and violent crimes. And still, both Germany and the UK refuse to criminalize these refugees telling their polizi to abstain for fear of mediaslamation… errr, defamation…
Hate speech does exist, its called bullying in our education system. All three of my sons were bullied in the public school system. Most school shooters were bullied in their public school system. But if you take away the gun from the bullied, will he feel better, will he/she feel less bullied? Will they cross the line in another way?
Islam belongs in Islam. Jewish people hang with Jewish people. Atheists hang with atheists. It is just the way it is – for the most part. There are exceptions, but they are few. Forcing people upon people is NOT the solution. It is government control bordering on Communism. And personally, I ain’t a fan…
