As popularity drops,”Mama Merkel” stands by decision to invite Syrians to Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 5, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

There is so much news out of a struggling-to-cope Germany that I suggest readers wishing to learn more simply search for ‘Merkel and refugees’ and take your pick of many news articles from around the world.

Horst Seehofer

Merkel critic Horst Seehofer sees his popularity rising as Merkel’s falls

Here is the Financial Times on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s plunging popularity.  There is even a reference to the government commandeering private property to house the 10,000 or so refugees entering Germany EVERY DAY!

Angela Merkel has defended her decision to make Germany a haven for refugees, despite sliding public support and mounting criticism of the policy from within her ruling coalition.

Speaking as Germany marked the 25th anniversary of reunification, the chancellor on Sunday urged people to apply the same energy to the unprecedented migrant wave as was shown in bringing together West and East Germany.

“We stand before new tasks . . . the scale and scope of which we do not yet know,” Ms Merkel said in a radio interview. She insisted that if she had to review the move she took a month ago to relax asylum rules for refugees from war-ravaged Syria, the biggest source of migrants, she would take the same decision again.

Her comments come as opinion polls reveal a sharp drop in support for Ms Merkel’s leadership. A survey for ARD television last week showed that the share of Germans satisfied with her work plunged 9 percentage points in a month to 54 per cent — the lowest level since December 2001.

Meanwhile, Horst Seehofer, head of the conservative Bavarian CSU party, partner to Ms Merkel’s CDU, who has called the chancellor’s refugee policy a “mistake”, saw his support rise 11 points to 39 per cent.

The commonsense German citizen knows this rate of migration is unsustainable, and the mystery continues about why Merkel made this disastrous decision in the first place.

    Ironically, Merkel’s actions will increase anti-semitism:

    Out of all the members of the EU German has been the most willing to assist with the migrant crisis. Other countries such as Hungary have been closing their borders and Political figures within the country have been preaching Xenophobia. As a result, the general population of Hungary has a negative view of the migrants and this translates into action. For example, the Hungarian camerawoman who was caught tripping and kicking migrants. Germany however, has become so accommodating to the migrants because of its dark past. Under Nazi rule Germany was responsible for one of the largest genocides in history and the integration of the migrants is another step in the healing process .

      It would seem to me if Merkel/Germany is looking to ‘soothe the soul’ regarding Hitler & the WWII Germany slaughter of Jews that she would be inviting Jews to come and live in Germany not Muslims. Muslims sided with Hitler during WWII:

      “”The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was a very influential Muslim leader at the time, almost equivalent to the Pope for Catholic’s. The Grand Mufti was one of Hitler’s strongest allies and actively recruited Arabs and Muslims across the world for the S.S. So “Palestine” and the Arabs were not innocent for the many atrocities of world war 2.”
