True but the citizens seem to be getting involved and taking matters into their own hands. The sign of a new third party rising to challenge Merkel's elitist globalism is very promising.
Facing growing pressure to resign over her increasingly unpopular welcoming policy towards migrants, German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave ground Saturday by saying migrants from Syria and Iraq would have to go home as soon as wars in those countries have ended.
“We need … to say to people that this is a temporary residential status and we expect that once there is peace in Syria again, once [ISIS] as been defeated in Iraq, that you go back to your home country with the knowledge that you have gained,” Merkel told a meeting of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party on Saturday, according to Reuters. Merkel likened the situation to the arrival of refugees from war-torn Yugoslavia in the 1990s. About 70 percent of those refugees returned home when the war ended, she said.
Despite being in charge of the conservative CDU, Merkel has been one of the most aggressive European leaders when it comes to welcoming migrants and asylum seekers from countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. An astonishing 1.1 million migrants arrived in Germany in 2015. Recently, scandal has erupted after the revelation that police in Cologne initially covered up a wave of organized, migrant-related thefts and sexual assaults during New Year’s Eve celebrations.
The German public is increasingly dissatisfied, with a recent poll showing 40 percent of Germans wanted her to resign over her refugee policy. It’s also causing division within Merkel’s own party, with the leader of its sister Christian Social Union (CSU) party threatening to sue the government if doesn’t act to stem the rush of migrants.
Merkel’s policies have also fueled the rise of Alternative for Germany, an anti-refugee party that is now polling as the third most-popular in Germany’s crowded party system. That party’s leader said in a new interview that, if necessary, German border police should shoot at migrants trying to force their way into the country.
The media needs to remind everyone that white males are evil and the bane of existence. That's why.
There are a lot of ridiculous businesses like that with cult followings. You could say the same thing about AAPL products and many food items like Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Maybe if Bernie the communist is elected POTUS, he will subsidize free B&J ice cream for all of us.
Ahhhh, yes, let's blame all of society's ills on climate change and why stop there? Let's delve into the realm of fantasy and fabricate climate change problems there as well.
Absolutely insane. Time to live Switzerland. What a j0ke. This is what Bernie the commie wants. Although, when you put all US entitlements together, we probably give more freebies than that. Good share Puddy.
Markets are always pricing in future events stup1d id1ot. Of course they are looking at the polls and realizing that some of these candidates are insane.
There are lunatics and dangerous psychos on both sides of the aisle so just vote for the one who can do the least damage. It seems like every politician for the last several decades has just increased legislation and regulations and expanded government when what this country really needs is to streamline legislation and for the government to stay out of the lives of every day Americans making every day decisions.
How many debates has the DNC and their candidates held on a Fox network? Oh yeah, that's right, zero. C0wards.
He is the most pathetic person there is along with his few cronies and their many ids.
Gold looks like it will break out anyway. The problem is the dollar is too strong. They're really in a tough situation since every other country is easing. They never should've started QE3 and should've raised back in late 2012
The sad thing is the BMI "standard" has been raised to make more fatties feel like their weight is "average". I am still in my 20s so it's pretty sad that it's changed so much in my short lifetime.
I'd like to hear so practical responses rather than the typical permabull/bear response.
Alexandra Mezher was “an angel” — young, beautiful and, above all, kind.
She was also the face of a new and idyllic Sweden. The 22-year-old’s family hailed from Lebanon. A couple of months ago, Mezher began working at an asylum center in the city of Molndal, helping unaccompanied minor migrants adapt to life in their adopted home.
She was killed by one of those young migrants, authorities said. Now her death threatens to shatter that idyllic image of the Scandinavian country, already under strain as it reacts to an influx of refugees.
“It is so terrible. She was a person who wanted to do good,” Mezher’s cousin told Swedish newspaper Expressen. “And then he murdered her when she was doing her job.
“It is the Swedish politicians’ fault that she is dead,” the cousin added.
Mezher was stabbed to death Monday by a 15-year-old migrant at a refugee center in Molndal, a city of about 40,000 people on the southwestern coast near Gothenburg, according to Expressen.
“It was messy, of course, a crime scene with blood,” police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg told Swedish news agency TT. He refused to identify Mezher’s teenage attacker, his nationality or his motive, but Fuxborg did say that other asylum seekers tried to come to Mezher’s aid.
“The perpetrator had been overpowered by other residents” when arrested, Fuxborg said, adding that everyone at the center was “depressed and upset” about the brutal stabbing.
Staffan Alexandersson, a social worker and spokesman for Living Nordic AB, the company that runs the center for unaccompanied migrant youth ages 14 to 17, described the incident as a “horrible and tragic event.”
“We regret what happened,” he told TT, “and we’re working right now in the crisis team to deal with both staff and children.”
Somehow I doubt the other asylum seekers tried to come to her aid. Grown men should be able to put down a 15 year old boy.
Those #$%$ are weird.
But it's ok because she cares about climate change.
