The “misunderstandings” of the Religion of Peace just keep on coming. Funny how that keeps happening, not to mention the uniformity with which Islam is so routinely “misunderstood.” “Germany tightens airport security over attacks threat,” fromÂ BBCNews, November 17: via JW:
Germany is increasing security at airports and railway stations in light of “concrete indications” of terrorist attacks being planned for the end of November. (continued below the fold)
‘More immigrants should work for the state’: German Chancellor Angela Merkel adds to the country’s roaring immigration debate
There are an estimated 4million Muslims in Germany which has contributed to a heated debate in the country
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has risked causing further outrage by saying that more immigrants should work for the state.
The country has been in the grip of a tense debate about the integration of Muslims for several weeks.
Fuelled by divisive comments about Turks and Arabs by central banker Thilo Sarrazin, Germany has been debating how to balance an economic need for more workers with growing public concern over integration of immigrants.
Merkel spakred controversy earlier this month when she said that multiculturalism had ‘utterly failed’ in Germany.
Her latest comments are now likely to cause more anger among citizens who feel alienated by the influx of immigrants to the country.
Interviewed by a 31-year-old Berlin policeman of Turkish origin for her latest internet podcast four days ahead of an integration summit at her chancellery, Merkel said:
‘Today, people with a migrant background are under- represented in the public sector, and that needs to change.’
However, Merkel conceded that this was not always easy.
‘I’ve also noticed that if someone has a name that doesn’t sound German they can often have trouble being taken on at all in some professions,’ she said.
Since Sarrazin inflamed opinion by asserting Turks and Arabs sponged off the state and refused to integrate, some of Merkel’s conservatives become more critical of Muslims, who make up an estimated 4 million of Germany’s 82 million population. (The Daily Mail has more)
German Police unable to do their job in Mohammedan quarters
So what kind of solution does the corrupt Socialist government propose? Â You guessed it:
Turkish cops to patrol German streets battling ethnic crime
Unfortunately, Turkish policemen seem to side with their Muslim brothers in times of conflict. There Â is Â increasing Â evidence of collusion between (Islamic) criminals and ethnic police.
Thilo Sarrazin descibed president Wulff’s visit to Turkey this way:
Wulff belittles the extermination of Christendom in Turkey
In Turkey Christianity is being tolerated at best. The numbers give you a clear picture: 1914 there were still 25 % Christians in Turkey, today there are at best 0.2 %. Even at the German School in Istanbul German lessons are forbidden. The president of Germany did nothing more than obfuscate and deny these very unpleasant circumstances by puring harmony and crap sauce over it.
Thilo Sarrazin Ã¼ber das Verhalten von BundesprÃ¤sident Christian Wulff wÃ¤hrend seines TÃ¼rkei-BesuchsÂ (PI berichtete):
“In der TÃ¼rkei wurde und wird der christliche Glaube bestenfalls geduldet. Die Zahlen sprechen da eine deutliche Sprache: Gab es 1914 noch 25 Prozent Christen in der TÃ¼rkei, sind es heute gerade noch 0,2 Prozent. Und an der deutschen Schule in Istanbul ist seit einigen Jahren der Deutschunterricht in den unteren Klassen verboten. Der BundesprÃ¤sident hat Ã¼ber diese nicht sehr erfreulichen ZustÃ¤nde eine Harmonie-Kitsch-Sauce gegossen.”
“If you want to go back to sleep instead of attending your integration course, then you’ll not merely have to get out of bed, you’ll have to get out of the country.”
Pray that Wilders gets elected Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
RNW Dutch Labour leader Job Cohen and anti-Islam Freedom Party (PVV) leader Geert Wilders clashed today in parliament during a debate on integration legislation for new immigrants.
Mr Wilders claimed Mr Cohen’s Labour Party does nothing to tackle immigrants who show a “half-hearted attitude” towards the mandatory integration course.Â Mr Cohen said deportation of immigrants who don’t fully participate in the course should be a last resort and that the current system of fining those who fail to attend the courses should be given a chance first.

Wilders praises Merkel Â for conflicting remarks about multiculturalism. Merkel Â “Not amused”
Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday rebuffed praise from Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders that her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) has taken “the lead in the domain of Islam criticism” in Germany.
WILDERS PRAISES MERKEL AS “ISLAM CRITIC”–AND MERKEL’S SPOKESMAN DENIES SHE IS ONE
Well, well, what is one to say about this?
Two things. First, before extolling Chancellor Merkel as an Islam critic, Wilders should have read VFR, where it wasÂ clearly established that her thrillingly negative remarks about Islam’s place in Germany were utterly meaningless, since they were contradicted by the exact opposite remarks which she also made. Had Wilders taken in the fact that Merkel herself is no Islam critic, he would have avoided the demurrer by the German government spokesman.
Second, while Merkel’s remarks were meaninglessÂ in themselves, they nevertheless were deeply significant as a symptom of a general shift in European thinking about Islam. And for this reason Wilders was absolutely right to cheer Merkel’s statement. Â (View from the Right)
Prof. Chesler: Anti-Semitism Cannot be Equated with Islamophobia
Even as Chancellor Angela Merkel pronounces the failure of “multiculturalism” in Germany, the English-language German newspaper reporter, Marc Young, writing for the English-languageÂ German news at The Local, proclaims that “bigotry towards Muslims is the new anti-Semitism.
As the author of a book with the titleÂ The New Anti-Semitism(with an edition in German), allow me to remind Mr. Young that one of the things that is “new” about this most ancient of hatreds is that it is pandemic in the Islamic world and in Muslim communities in the West and that the multicultural relativists in the world’s universities, media, and political leadership, are collaborating with it in the name of “political correctness.”
THE ghosts of multiculturalism are haunting a country that has failed with the concept.
(Not withstanding the fact that there is no country in the world that is Â not “clumsy” and succeeded with the concept of multiculturalism, Â Germany is definitely not the only place in the world that “failed with the concept”. It is precisely Â the other way around; Muslim migrants, or ‘non working guests” Â as they are called in Germany, have failed to integrate or assimilate, Â it is the ‘religion of peace’ that fails them. But that does not occur to Oliver Marc Hartwich from the Australian.)
LAST weekend, German Chancellor Angela Merkel became the unlikely gravedigger for multiculturalism when she rejected the idea of cultural pluralism, surprising even her own party members.
Merkel is hardly known for her outspokenness. (Continued below the fold)
Germany: 58% want to ‘seriously limit’ practice of Islam
The Â immigration debate sparked this summer by former Bundesbank board member Thilo Sarrazin has apparently had an effect on the German public. Over 58 percent said that “religious practice for Muslims in Germany should be seriously limited,” and that number rose to 75.7 percent for people from former East Germany. (The Local)
Germany to set up three Islamic study centres: Berlin
Well, as long as the imam’s turn out as good as this guy only greasy Islamophobes like us would complain. However, there is just one small problem: the teachings of the Koran are unconstitutional and diametrically opposed to the values and laws of a liberal democracy.
German university launches training for imams
In the hope that there’ll be less misunderstanders of Islam, of course:
“The new centres will not only create an outstanding framework for better theological debate in our universities. We also want to contribute to making the four million Muslims in Germany feel more at home,” added the minister. (Islam is not about debate, its about killing the unbelievers) The debate was sparked in August when Thilo Sarazzin, a member of the country’s respected central bank said Germany was being made “more stupid” by immigrants.
Berlin would contribute up to four million euros (six million dollars) to the funding for each location, the government added. Â (Expatica)
Of course. If it wasn’t for support from the soldiers of Allah, Germany’s Socialists would be irrelevant by now, because the formerly conservative CDU has drifted so far to the left that the whole country has gone off the rails. No wonder the Â red rat-bags are looking for new customers.
Really? I doubt it. But nothing beats Fitzgerald’s prayer:
And everywhere in the Lands of the Infidels the large-scale presence of MuslimsÂ has created a situation ofÂ much greater unpleasantness, expense, and physical insecurity than would exist without such a presence.Â That no one in Western Europe now denies; the quarrel is over what can or should be done about that.

ANGRY claims that Islam is ‘dumbing down’ Germany have shocked its nation’s leaders.
Good luck with that. The Koranimals Â will not be impressed.
(Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday Muslims must obey the constitution and not sharia law if they want to live in Germany, which is debating the integration of its 4 million-strong Muslim population.
In the furor following a German central banker’s blunt comments about Muslims failing to integrate, moderate leaders including President Christian Wulff have urged Germans to accept that “Islam also belongs in Germany.”

“Though not a widespread phenomenon, the neo-Nazi movement continues to exist in small pockets across Germany.”
BERLIN – Some 65 years after the fall of Nazi Germany, there’s growing concern that the spirit of Adolf Hitler still lives in the country.
It’s not a widespread phenomenon, but the neo-Nazi movement continues to exist in small pockets across Germany.
“Young men are attracted because there are no alternatives in the village except this group who are aggressive, who are male, chauvinist and dominating the scene,” explained Hajo Funke, a neo-Nazi expert at the Free University of Berlin.
