^Yeah, it seemed like many news reports tried to make it seem like it was an attack against the Mosque, not the French soldiers.

Migrant Invasion Will Reach OVER 10 MILLION Warns German Minister

by NICK HALLETT 10 Jan 2016

Europe has barely even seen the start of the migrant influx, Germany’s Development Minister has warned.

Gerd Müller said only 10 per cent of Syrian and Iraqi migrants have reached Europe so far and “eight to ten million are still on the way”, with even more to come from Africa.

“The biggest movements are ahead: Africa’s population will double in the coming decades,” he told Bild am Sonntag, adding: “In the Sahara up to one million people have died trying to escape.”


The European Commission, he added, has lost a significant amount of authority thanks to the crisis. “The protection of external borders is not working. Schengen has collapsed. A fair distribution of refugees has not taken place,” he said.

He said that in the digital age we live in, more people than ever know about the prosperity of Western nations thus making it more likely they will try to travel here.

He also called for a 10 billion euro “Marshall Plan”, with European states paying to rebuild war torn countries such as Iraq, Syria and Libya. “All states must pay, especially those that receive no refugees,” he warned.

When asked about calls from Bavarian regional president Horst Seehofer to put a cap on the number of migrants admitted to Germany, Mr Müller responded: “We need a reduction. If we have a million again like last year, we cannot successfully integrate them at the same time.”

Mr Müller’s comments echo those of Heinz Buschkowsky, an MP from the Social Democratic Party who predicted the total number of migrants reaching Germany by 2020 would be between five and 10 million.

“The situation is irreversible,” he added. “The people who are here now, this society is challenged to integrate them and to offer them a perspective on life.”

He also blasted those who treat the migration debate with empty platitudes such as “refugees welcome”, saying: “This social romanticism, these beautiful speeches, for someone who comes from experience is very difficult to bear.”

Quote:How not to get caught: ISIS guide to terrorist success

[Image: 5693b204c46188b77d8b45dd.jpg]
Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) “Safety and Security Guidelines for Lone Wolf Mujahideen” is as much a revelation about the group’s perception of Western culture as it is a step-by-step guide to staying under the radar of security services.
No doubt that today, at the era of the lone wolves, brothers in the West, need to know some important things about safety in order to ensure success in their operations,” introduction to the the 58-page terror manual begins.

Here are just some of the tidbits of advice on offer for the lone wolves.

- Avoid “looking like a Muslim” – The best way to do this is apparently to “avoid having a beard, wearing qamis (islamic tunics), using miswak (teeth cleaning twigs) and having a booklet of dhikr (prayers and devotional acts) with you.

- Shave your beard - even ISIS knows the hipster beard is out of fashion.

- Pay attention to your jewellery - It may give away your religion. The guide suggests wearing a cross in Western countries, but cautions “don’t wear a cross necklace if you have a Muslim name on your passport, as that may look strange.

- Splash on the aftershave - “If you are a man use perfume for men,” the guide states. It also recommends “generic alcoholic perfume as everyone" else wears, and not the “oily, non-alcoholic perfume that Muslims use.”

- Just say hello - “No need to be using too much of the usual sentences that religious brothers use, like ‘salam alaykum’, ‘barakallah feek’ or ‘jazakallah khayr’ and so on.”

- Don’t forget to Party! - “Nightclubs are the perfect place to discuss terror plans, the loud music and drunk clientele make it easy to plan in peace without being recorded or snooped on.”

The booklet is being widely shared on social media and is just the latest example of ISIS’ English-language propaganda.

Maybe you feel the same but there are so many articles about immigrants or islamists that I can't post all of them even if some could have been considered as quite important 10 years ago.

Things are changing quickly.

‘We can’t arrest them’: German police officer speaks out on refugees

mad F*ck off inviting them here then Germany. How's it the rest of Europe's fault that you threw your doors open? Germany created the problem and now blames the rest of Europe for not adding to it.

Opinion: Constitutional experts demand reversal on refugees, say Merkel has no mandate

Leading experts on constitutional law are calling for a turnaround in the German government's refugee policy. Merkel should listen to them, says DW's Christoph Hasselbach.

After the Cologne attacks, the German government is being inundated with suggestions on tightening the country's asylum laws. The emphasis is on laws that would make it easier to deport criminal asylum seekers. But critics keep pointing out how difficult such laws are to enforce, even when an asylum seeker has committed a crime, or after their application has been rejected.

But that's actually beside the point. The real issue is that the government is still keeping the door open for uncontrolled immigration. Around 3,000 people cross into Germany every day. We are in the middle of winter. Just imagine how many it will be when the Balkans route is warmer and the Mediterranean is calmer. And that's not even addressing the issue of family members coming to join refugees that have been granted asylum.

Everyone can come

If it were just Syrian or Iraqi war refugees coming, and the authorities knew that without a doubt, it would be easier to understand the open-door policy. But many of the migrants arrive here with no passport, and pretend to be from Syria. Many instead come from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, to name just a few countries of origin. They are not the richest or most democratic countries, but even so, barely any of their citizens stand a chance at being granted asylum in Germany. Despite this, people who make it to Germany do have relatively good chances at permanent residency.

Chancellor Merkel said she wanted to significantly reduce the number of refugees. But Turkey hasn't lived up to its promise to stop refugees from traveling on to Europe, nor is there much reason to expect that other EU states will take on their share of the burden. And yet Merkel wants to keep the borders open.

How long should this continue, if not even the rest of Merkel's CDU party is willing to stand up to their leader? We can't expect opposition from the other parties in parliament: The SPD, the Greens and the Left Party are for even more liberal policies on refugees.

Constitutional experts: State under threat

Maybe they'll listen to a group of renowned legal scholars who are experts on the German constitution. They've now spoken out in the sharpest of tones, warning that the state is under threat. The business daily Handelsblatt quoted the former president of the Federal Constitutional Court, Hans-Jürgen Papier, who spoke of a "blatant political failure." The constitutional state must not allow itself to become unhinged by political decisions, he said, adding that it has a duty to "stand up to threats that could result from permanent, unlimited, and uncontrolled migration."

Former constitutional justice Udo di Fabio wrote in an opinion piece published by the mass circulation Bild newspaper that the German constitution is not there to protect people from all over the world "via an actual or legal entry permit." The country is obligated to "reintroduce effective controls along national borders," he said.

And Michael Bertrams, a former president of the constitutional court in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, accused Merkel, in a recent article in the Cologne Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper, of allowing hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country in a "self-aggrandizing act without parliamentary permission."

The Hamburg-based legal scholar Reinhard Merkel (no relation to the chancellor) pointed to a further aspect of the debate at the beginning of October. In an interview with DW, he said then that the point had already been reached either for "new elections or a referendum on this issue." The German people, he said, had never been asked.

All of these arguments are straightforward. But until now, politicians, citizens and journalists who expressed such views have been labeled "right wing." Maybe now that they're coming from some of Germany's foremost legal experts, they'll carry more weight.

Opinion: Dangerous times for Merkel

"Merkeling" is a neologism for letting politics run their course. For a decade, the chancellor has been successful doing just that. Now, of all times, her 10th anniversary year will decide her fate, Volker Wagener says.

This year everything is different: Angela Merkel's politics of the steady hand, quiet undertones and slow decision-making are history. And that on the 10th anniversary of her chancellorship.

The political audits on the Merkel decade had already been written in the summer - at least mentally. Depending on one's political perspective, they were either anthems of adoration or, at the worst, teeth-grinding recognition.

Merkel, eponym for an era, was at the height of her power, her reputation and her authority. The Greeks aren't the only ones who could tell you a thing or two about it - so could the Social Democrats and the alpha males in her own party. She managed Germany, and Europe as well - until the summer, that is.

End of a political fairy tale?

Then came the refugees. Hundreds of thousands declared Germany the Promised Land. Merkel responded with statements like: "We can do it!" and "Asylum laws have no upper limit." But since September, politics has once again turned confrontational. Legions of do-gooders have shown their support of the welcome culture with their actions, but society's stomach is rumbling.

In the meantime, an unofficial rebellion is brewing in Merkel's conservative alliance. All that's missing is a ringleader. How the tide has turned! Merkel, who on numerous occasions has been designated as the world's most important, powerful woman, who even had some members of the opposition at her feet, is experiencing an erosion of her authority. Are we at the end of a political fairy tale?

Merkel's rise wasn't that spectacular: Her first years as chancellor progressed as if under anesthesia. With no natural rivals, she led a grand coalition without any opposition. Her reputation wasn't built on what she did, but on how she did it: a long period of passivity, only making the big decisions once the majority had been assured. She sanded off the rough edges from her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, so much so that one could mistake it for the Social Democrats (SPD). Merkel has become the unofficial leader of Germany's consensus society.

In short: Politics under Merkel is boring but reassuring. Almost cuddly. Merkel is seen as trustworthy - even deep into the ranks of the left-wing and alternative camps. She's a master of the art of inconcrete and compelling phrasing. Nothing symbolizes Merkel's political style better than the Buddhist-like appearance of her well-known hand gesture, a diamond shape formed by her thumbs and index fingers. "Look," it seems to convey, "I have insights into the basic facts of life." This symmetry, her party, the voter support, however, has been lost with the open-door policy.

Autumn of the matriarch?

Merkel's ability to put conflicts on ice has proved to be inappropriate when faced with the refugee issue. Until now, the mistakes of others were her greatest asset; now she's the one that has slipped up. Her mistake avoidance strategy, as a political recipe, has failed.

Now Merkel has to lead - and she has proved she can do that. She recognized the opportunity as political support for Helmut Kohl wavered and she was elected CDU party chairperson in 2000; in a flash, she said goodbye to nuclear power after Fukushima in 2011. But in all these steps she had the opinion polls - the will of the people - on her side.

Now it's time for her to wield her scepter, not just on the international stage but also in domestic politics, a field that has almost exclusively been left to her coalition partners the SPD. Merkel's focus has been foreign policy: save the euro and bring climate change in check, defy Russia, discipline Greece. She has made herself indispensable when it comes to crisis management around the world, leading to a reassuring "Swiss-ification of Germany," according to the "Die Welt" newspaper.

Those times are over. Merkel must now decide how Germany will proceed on the domestic front. More than a million refugees in a few months is hardly a footnote in the daily business of governing - and it won't be in the long run either. Does she have a plan? If not, anything is possible: resignation, early elections. It had been widely assumed she would stand for re-election again in 2017. But that was before the welcome culture.

Poll: Germans increasingly skeptical of refugees

A new poll has indicated Germans are markedly more pessimistic about refugees. Fifty-six percent of respondents now find Chancellor Merkel to be doing a poor job handling the refugee crisis.

A rising number of Germans believe the country cannot handle the massive influx of refugees, are concerned of rising crime and a threat to their culture, and question Chancellor Angela Merkel's policies, according to a poll by public broadcaster ZDF published on Friday.

For the first time, a majority of Germans say the country cannot manage the influx of asylum seekers, compared to 46 in December. Meanwhile, only 37 percent find the crisis manageable.

That puts German opinion increasing at odds with Merkel, who has repeated the mantra "we can manage" in response to the 1.1 million asylum seekers who arrived in the country last year.

Still, a majority of 57 percent also do not believe a proposal to set an upper-limit on the number of refugees at 200,000 as advocated by the Christian Social Union (CSU), the sister party to Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), would work.

Concern over crime

The rising negative sentiment appears in part a reflection of hundreds of alleged sexual assaults on women by North African and Arab men on New Year's Eve, with nearly one-third of respondents saying the attacks had an impact on their opinion of refugees. Two-thirds said the attacks in Cologne and other cities had little impact on their opinion on refugee issues.

A vast majority of 70 percent of respondents expect crime to rise due to a large increase in refugees, compared to 62 percent with the same view when asked in October. Only 27 percent do not expect crime to rise.

Meanwhile, 73 percent of respondents believe laws and procedures for deporting asylum seekers who commit crimes should be strengthened, in a nod to the government's recent moves in that direction.

Dwindling support for Merkel's refugee policy

Furthermore, compared to 33 percent of respondents in October saying that refugees represent a threat to German culture and societal values, 42 percent now believe so. That compares to 52 percent of Germans who do not view refugees as a threat.

The growing negative sentiment is hitting Merkel's numbers on the refugee issue. Compared to 49 percent in December, 56 percent of respondents now say that they do not believe Merkel is doing a good job handling the refugee crisis.

The poll was conducted by telephone with 1,203 random respondents between January 12 to 14.

German town bans refugees from swimming pool

A town near the German cities of Cologne and Bonn has banned male refugees from the municipal pool after sexual harassment complaints. Tension is high in Germany over immigration and women's rights.

A suburb of the German city of Bonn has forbidden adult male refugees from visiting the town's public pool, a city spokesman announced on Friday. After women at the municipal pool in Bornheim had begun complaining of sexual harassment, said the spokesman, it was clear that immediate action should be taken to protect the rights of the women.

Initially the men, who live in a shelter in Bornheim while they await the results of their asylum applications, were given access to the municipal pool as part of a small package of benefits. Soon, however, women began going to the manager saying the men's behavior was unacceptable.

While none of the incidents amounted to anything illegal, the city said it was important first and foremost to make it clear to the men that in Germany, the rights of women are sacrosanct.

"Once our social workers tell us that they have got the message, we'll terminate the measure," said Markus Schnapka, head of Bornheim's social welfare office.

Germany has been on edge about immigrants and sexual violence since a string of sexual assaults were carried out, many by asylum seekers, in the city of Cologne, which is very close to Bonn, on New Year's Eve. The attacks have sent shockwaves through a country that usually has a great deal of faith its public institutions.

The scandal has touched everyone from the Cologne chief of police, who has since stepped down, to the state of North-Rhine Westphalia's regional government, to Chancellor Angela Merkel herself and her open-door policy for refugees.

Still a large minority of idiots though that believe Germany can handle such an influx and refuse to see the crime they bring. And the trouble is such people always tend to shout the loudest and will not only express their opinion but shout down and harass anyone who disagrees.

RE: European Enrichment Experiment News Watch
Actually nobody I know shares the opinions of these naive retards you always see on TV or read about in the news. The government has the advantage of a state-controlled press. On the streets things are quite different though, and the discussion is slowly transferring from the talk shows and manipulated opinion polls onto the street.

Today old Phleggy participated in a protest rally right in his hood and could witness a partially radicalized bourgeoisie. And for somer eason when I was buying groceries around 8 p.m. I saw several dozen police transporters parked along the main streets, filled with cops but without any clear concept. I wonder what that was all about. Actually I was about to park my car and ask them straightaway, but als old Phleggy had learned already as a small child that all cops are bastards until proven innocent and engaging any of these uniformed profile neurotics is considered an invitation to get your ID checked and strip-searched he decided to drive on and find about it later, especially as old Phleggy used to be in a special police database with about 20,000 others in this country and this more often than not could result in a night spent in a damp police station cellar. And honestly, I am getting too old for that shit.
