Will Muslim migrants flowing to Germany assimilate or radicalize?
Recent events in Germany make the outlook dim.
As the migrant crisis spirals out of control in Europe and though Saudi Arabia refuses to take in any Syrian refugees, they have offered to build 200 new mosques in Germany.
Syria’s richer Gulf neighbours have been accused of not doing their fair share in the humanitarian crisis, with Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the UAE also keeping their doors firmly shut to asylum-seekers.
According to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, which quoted a report in the Lebanese newspaper Al Diyar, Saudi Arabia would build one mosque for every 100 refugees who entered Germany in extraordinary numbers last weekend.
Angela Merkel, who last week announced that Germany would “no longer follow the Dublin accord which stipulated refugees and asylum seekers had to be processed in the first EU member state they arrived in,” is reportedly hopeful that the Syrian refugees will assimilate into German language and culture.
Back in Germany, Angela Merkel welcomed two refugee families at a home for asylum-seekers in the Berlin suburb of Spandau on Thursday.
She told reporters after the visit: “Their integration will certainly take place in part via the children, who will learn German very quickly in kindergarten. And I hope and believe that the great majority will want to learn our language very quickly.”
Whether she will welcome Saudi Arabia’s reported offer, which Al Diyar noted would “have to go through the federal authorities”, remains to be seen.
Merkel is urging more European countries to adopt her policy toward refugees. Watch:
While Merkel is hopeful for assimilation, or at least that the migrants will learn German, Islamist imams are reportedly already targeting Syrian refugees in Germany, whom they fear may convert to Christianity.
The International Business Times reports:
Salafists in Germany, followers of a fundamentalist and sometimes violent interpretation of Islam which gave birth to the Islamic State, are targeting refugees fleeing the Middle East and Asia for radicalisation.
As more than 4,000 refugees and migrants arrive in the south-east of Europe every day and with 105,000 arriving in Germany in August alone, fears have been raised that the flow of people from Isis-held Iraq, Libya and Syria may pose a security risk.
In Germany the country’s fundamental Islamists have identified those arriving from the embattled nations to the west as ripe for radicalisation. Bavaria-based preacher Pierre Vogel, a proponent of strict Sharia law but who does not advocate violence, has published guidelines in a YouTube video on how his followers should best capitalise on the arriving refugees. He suggests they should form teams to help refugees build shelters and visit them often.
Vogel instructs his fellow Salafists to “bring gifts” and try to gain access to accommodation where refugees are staying. If they are refused they are told to engage with refugees in their local mosques. The Salafists are also concerned that refugees might convert to Christianity.
While Merkel suggests that refugee children will learn German in kindergarten, Vijeta Uniyal (who also writes for Legal Insurrection) warns at the Gatestone Institute website that several German states are instituting Islamic studies in public schools and that this could undermine any hope of assimilation. Uniyal writes:
Several German states including Bavaria, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia have introduced Islamic Studies in their public schools. The state of Hesse has become the first in Germany to offer Islamic education in public schools, with religious instruction starting as early as the first grade.
Giving young children religious and moral instruction might sound like a good idea, if not for the content of the newly written Islamic curriculum and the influence of Islamist elements over the recruitment of teachers.
The writing of textbooks is being overseen by the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB). In an agreement reached between the State of Hesse and DITIB, the organization will play a key role in setting the curriculum, selecting the teachers and monitoring the Islamic religious instruction. The organization is apparently assuming a similar role in several other key German states.
DITIB is the largest Muslim organization in Germany and controls several prominent mosques. The group depends heavily on the Turkish government for its funding, and maintains close ties with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamist party, the AKP.
. . . . By legitimizing extremist groups such as DITIB as the sole legitimate representatives of Islam within German Muslim society, the German government has marginalized genuine voices of reform and dissent within its Muslim population.
These courageous dissident Muslim men and women are left to face threats and intimidation on their own, while the government is busy appeasing the self-proclaimed leaders of the faith.
It will be interesting to see how this battle for the hearts and minds of refugee and immigrant children plays out.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The stupidity and self-destructiveness of the German government defies all rational belief.
There will be assimilation. The Germans will become muslims. The “refugees” may learn the language at first, but only to assist their goal of world domination.
Mosques, of course, are a key element in taking over an invaded country. They are highly likely locations of radicalization and terrorist staging.
Sure is nice of the Saudis to volunteer to finance so many of them, isn’t it?
Integration is unlikely. Sweden is a grim example. Its politically correct policy of lavishly supporting all and any immigrants with taxpayer kroner has got its immigrant population up to 16 percent of the total, and its support budget has quadrupled to $4 billion in just a few years. 58% of welfare payments go to immigrants, who instead of integrating are clustering in welfare ghettos.
US and European media are mum. The Globe and Mail has a story:
Have Muslims involved in mass-migration (read “invasion”) ever assimilated? (See: Malmo, London, Dearborn)
No. Unless murdering, raping and pillaging non-Mohammedans is considered assimilation. In Detroit, murder, rape and pillaging seem to be routine, so maybe yes.
I’m thoroughly baffled by how the supposedly responsible, intelligent leaders of sophisticated countries can be so utterly blind to what is happening all around them — unless they’re just so naively vain as to imagine they’ll be able to handle things better.
” Will Muslim migrants flowing to Germany assimilate or radicalize? ”
They haven’t assimilate to date so why should they now?
Because of the media’s hysterical reporting of those who died trying to get to Europe?
When will people come to acquaint themselves with the facts?
Many of those “migrants” have been sent or forced to move to Europe and the US.
It seems that the native populations do not understand that the Muslim communities in their midst are controlled by, in most cases, the Imam’s thugs thus keeping everyone prisoner to the “religious” wishes of their culture.
Well before the turn of the century the Saudis had invested hundreds of millions in setting up their culture in the US and Europe.
That was not for those feedom loving subjects to acculturate.
Germany slaughtered its Jewish citizens and now is inviting in Muslims who will slaughter Germans.
My theory is all of this is directed at Israel. The Gand of God is in this. All those Jews who are moving from one European country to another to avoid going to Israel, now may have no choice. They will either flee to America, fat chance under Obama, or go to Israel. The fulfillment of prophecy is taking place before our very eyes. Now we know how so many nations will turn against Israel. It will not end well for them, as long as Israel looks to God, rather than the USA, for help.
All while Iran readies it’s nukes.
More Jews to America from Europe is a great idea!
More ANY Caucasion Europeans is a great idea to restore our historical demographics. That should become a priority for immigration reform – we are a nation formed primarily by the melding of of European cultures. We need to rebalance those ingredients into the American Stew.
Obama soon will be past tense as President.
Who among the present contenders is most likely to be willing to re-spice to stew to its original recipe balance? Who is most likely to resist the PC complaints of racism?
Hello my Donald
Hello my Trump-ÿ
Hello my Neo-Immigration Guy!
I thought trolls took Sunday off.
Seventh Day Adventist trolls too?
Carson go home.
My observation was serious, Paul.
I am in favor of the U.S.once again becoming a nation with a solid European majority.
I’ve been ‘trolling’ that idea on liberal sites for years (banned from some for my view).
Is that idea as problematic here as well?
The majority of the tired the poor the hungry who came to make this nation as great as it was, were Europeans. My great great grandparent ancestors didn’t emigrate here for their descendants to speak Spanish. Our culture has always reflected that European heritage. Yes other spices in the stew add savor; but adding two cups of salt to a pot of chowder spoils the broth.
We need to reduce future non-European entry, and increase European immigration.
DON-ALD are you listening!
So, we can add racial and ethnic bigotry to your regional bigotry. Cool…!!!
But, you poor receptacle, Spanish IS a European language, and Hispanics ARE derivative of a European culture. And, of course, a LOT of Spanish immigrates to the New World were Spanish Jews.
Really, how stupid ARE you?
Trumpettes can look at any problem in the world and say, “That’s why we need Trump! He’s the only one who can fix it!”
What Trump may have said (or done) about the issue, if anything, is immaterial. It’s a matter of faith.
Meanwhile, Trump has come down firmly on the side of sharia-directed self-censorship so as not to offend Muslims.
72+% are young males! A majority belong to ISIS / AQ. The Germans will be forced to become Muslims and they will start World War 3, Germany will be nuked and the Germans will lose also the third world war.
This policy is spectacularly reckless. One can easily anticipate more migration, more migrant deaths, and social unrest.
Assimilation is as likely as making a fortune buying pork belly futures on the Syrian commodity market.
“As the migrant crisis spirals out of control in Europe and though Saudi Arabia refuses to take in any Syrian refugees, they have offered to build 200 new mosques in Germany.”
Ha ha ha ha. Don’t we have homegrown terrorist who were inspired and encouraged at mosques funded by the Saudis? Did anyone from the Boston Bomber mosque step forward and identify him? No. Didn’t Portland have an attempted Christmas bombing a while back, and mysteriously the mosque office with records caught fire. No help from the mosque on that guy. Weren’t the shooters at the Draw Mohammed party from a radical mosque funded by….the Saudis? They are using the money we spent on oil to destroy us.
They don’t assimilate. As a child I remember during Fridays in Lent the teacher counting how many meatless meals were needed for student lunches. Not a big deal. Halal is nothing like that. As a Peace Corps Volunteer in a Muslim country, I remember the country director once had a meal where ham was served. He asked his Mohammedan house staff if it was ok, and she said yes. After the meal she carried everything, pots, pans, plates, cups, saucers, silverware, and anything else which could be carried to the backyard and washed it all in dirt. So if the local prison or school want to serve halal meals, they will either need two distinct kitchens or all the food must be halal. That is not assimilation.
Germany is headed for disaster. But this disaster is a long time coming. The godless nihilism which goes with modern liberal thinking has led to the destruction of the family and falling birthrates. Islam is filling an already created vacuum.
“While Merkel is hopeful for assimilation, or at least that the migrants will learn German, Islamist imams are reportedly already targeting Syrian refugees in Germany, whom they fear may convert to Christianity.”
Using the word “Targeting” refugees is not by chance. If any were to convert to Christianity they would be killed under sharia law. There won’t be any conversions and the Germans know it. Say goodbye to Germany!
Muslim immigrants have never, will never, assimilate in any non-Muslim country.
So, obviously, many of them will “radicalize”. The rest will finance the schools and mosques that “radicalize” them, and dance in the streets when they commit terror attacks – handing out candies the way they do at weddings. Whenever a “radical” is arrested, the “moderates” will support him at his trial, if a “radical” gets himself killed the “moderates” will throw a parade and idolize him as a “martyr”.
In other words, they’ll behave as what they are: Muslims. There only real difference between a “radical” and a “moderate” is one detonates the bomb while the rest spent their entire life encouraging him to do so.
No assimilation. No integration. Just urban ghettos…
That said, what about the Libyans, the Iraquis, the Afghanis, the Ukrainians, etc.?
Spring Forward! and “Plan”.
More national issues will no doubt divide some of the Muslims. Witness the recent street battle on the streets of Frankfurt when goons for Erdogan extended Erdogan’s domestic oppression against Kurds to Germany, leading to a public physical attack on protesting Kurds that had to be broken up by the police.
I think the only way you could get a ‘progressive’ to understand the threat is to suggest a parallel situation.
To wit, that NPR will shortly commence a lavish hiring campaign of Tea Party conservatives in order to impose a 50%diversity of opinion on its ‘news and information’ activities, and that its existing elites are acting as cheerleaders to welcome the newcomers and to feature their stories prominently.
That’s a fabulous idea for NPR to follow!
And for FOX too!
Germany will solve this problem by increasing their persecution of Christian homeschoolers.
And telling German schoolgirls to cover up.
Ah, multiculturalism, the exodus of core cultural values and the immigration of a synthesis of good and evil in order to “accommodate” all values as being equal.
How the mighty will fall, in short order.
Germany…and several other EU countries…may be suicidal. But they are not for a QUICK suicide.
I have been wondering where the northern border of the European Caliphate will be. It gives every sign of being well north of Britain.
Since they have already taken over parts of Norway and Sweden, that’s pretty much a given at this point.
the turks (backed by iran) knifing soldiers in germany in the 80’s never assimilated.
Saudi Arabia couldn’t make it more obvious these people are not refugees they’re the vanguard of hijra. Tom Kratman’s book is looking more and more like an accurate description of future Europe.
Does Merkel actually believe that learning the local language equals assimilation? Is she that dense? Or does she just have an extremely impoverished view of what a culture is?
They are not refugee’s, they are invaders.
The 200 new Saudi mosques will be to give aid and comfort to those who would destroy Germany from within.
Sort of like a muzzie version of the USO?
Read this Islam will not assimilate. Merkel should lnarn history. I wonder how people of germany who love beer and pork can live happilly with neighboors who hate so much alcohol, pork (and jews)
Unsealed confidential British documents reveal that in 1982, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl tried to carry out a radical plan. He wanted to reduce the number of Turks living in Germany by 50 percent within four years.
