Merkel says refugees didn’t bring “Islamist terrorism” to Germany

“The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants.” Nonetheless, Merkel says: “The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees.”

And she is right: the Muslim migrant jihadis didn’t bring jihad terror to Germany: it was already there. But they certainly exacerbated it, and that is Merkel’s doing.

She also says: “We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution … belongs to Germany.” What Islam is that? Where has it ever existed? “She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.” Very well, but what is she doing to remove it from the country, or prevent its further entry? Nothing. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Islamist terrorism

“Merkel says refugees didn’t bring Islamist terrorism to Germany,” Reuters, August 17, 2016:

Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country as long as it was practiced in a way that respected the constitution.

More than a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere arrived in Germany last year. The mood towards them has soured after a spate of attacks on civilians last month, including three carried out by migrants.

Two of those attacks were claimed by the Islamic State militant group.

“The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees,” Merkel said at an election campaign event for her Christian Democrats in the eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ahead of a regional vote on Sept. 4.

Merkel said many people had traveled from Germany to Syria for training with Islamist militants. In June Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said a total of more than 800 were believed to have gone to Syria and Iraq.

“This group has worried us for several years,” she said at the event in Neustrelitz, a town 100 km (60 miles) north of Berlin….

“We have said clearly that an Islam that works and lives on the basis of the constitution … belongs to Germany,” Merkel said.

What Islam is that, Frau Reichkanzler? (Yes, thank you, I know she is Bundeskanzler. I called her “Reichkanzler” because she is the worst German Chancellor since Adolf Hitler.)

She added that a type of Islam that did not stick to the constitution or accept equal rights for women had no place in the country.

Really? Sure looks as if you’re anxious to give it a home there.
