Germany: 10,000 rally in Dresden against Islam/asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 12, 2014

Update December 14th:  More demonstrations expected tomorrow, here.

Invasion of Europe breaking news….

“Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West” marched in Dresden earlier this week.

A day after the Obama Administration announced it is “welcoming” 9,000 Syrian Muslims to the US, Germans are expressing their anger loud and clear about the influx of Muslim asylum seekers. Germany is planning to take up to 20,000 Syrians in the coming months. Demonstrations of this size must be shaking up the European Union.  In October it was Cologne.

From Reuters at Yahoo News:

BERLIN/NUREMBERG (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday condemned anti-Muslim demonstrations centered on the eastern city of Dresden, saying there was “no place in Germany” for hatred of Muslims or any other minority.

In a speech at a party congress of her Bavarian allies in Nuremberg, Merkel also denounced an attack on buildings in a nearby town being turned into refuge for asylum-seekers. The structures were set on fire and daubed with swastikas.

“It is unbearable when homes of asylum-seekers are defiled, when people try to make radical slogans,” Merkel said, adding that everyone coming to Germany had the right to be treated decently.

Earlier on Friday, Merkel’s spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said: “In the name of the government and the chancellor I can say quite clearly that there is no place in Germany for religious hatred, no matter which religion people belong to.”

“There is no place for Islamophobia, anti-Semitism or any form of xenophobia or racism,” Wirtz said of the growing Monday evening marches in Dresden under the motto PEGIDA, standing for “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West”.

The latest PEGIDA march on Monday drew up to 10,000 people and almost as many counter-demonstrators. The organizers, who began two months ago with a few hundred people, say they are not against immigrants but want to protest against Islamic extremism and the influx of asylum-seekers.

  1. […] According to the UNHCR, in 2013 alone, the top five countries receiving asylum claims were led by Germany (109,600), USA (88,400), France (60,100), Sweden (54,300) and Turkey (44,800).  No wonder the Germans are marching in the streets. […]

  6. It’s great to see Germans are waking up. From what I was reading, these PEDIGA marches are growing in numbers every week. As a Canadian, I was thrilled today when my Immigration minister announced that we would be taking in about 1500 Syrian refugees, but priority will be given to persecuted religious minorities, meaning Christians first, and then Yazidis. Naturally, the UN doesn’t agree with this, big deal!

    It sounds like Merkel and some in the press are using the Swedish technique of tar-painting all of the protesters as “Nazis” and “Islamophobes” in order to stifle opposition. This won’t work because a sizable percentage of the protesters are simply concerned citizens who are worried about the future of Germany. There are not enough places to house all of these migrants (many of whom have extremely large families who intend to join them eventually). Local budgets are becoming strained – and the situation will become much worse because the global migrant wave shows no signs of receding.

    Meanwhile, in Italy, the Mafia has moved into the migrant transport and housing “business”, and authorities in Macedonia have arrested a Muslim religious leader, Imam Nasim Demiri, for setting up a smuggling ring that brought Syrians into Europe.
