Violence among young people is often a sign that they see no perspective for themselves. All that helps is education, education, education.
Our state is making many offers, but the main responsibility lies with the parents, and cannot be taken on by schools or the state.Merkel is attempting to bury the problem. Unfortunately, it will refuse to remain buried and rise like the undead to continue to suck the lifeblood from German society.
Thilo Sarrazin has done nothing more in his book than be honest about the Muslim problem in Germany and to baldly state the facts with respect to the genetic distinctiveness of Basques and Jews. From the way that the global media has reacted you would have thought that Sarrazin had claimed that Basques and Jews were Untermenschen, which, thankfully, he most certainly has not. The Sydney Morning Herald ran a hysterical report on Sarrazin entitled ‘A creepy banker fleshes out the modern fascist’ in which he was compared to Dr Strangelove. A man calmly points out that his country is being dragged down and taken over by violent Muslim colonists and yet he is the one accused of being a Nazi. Incredible!
The German Establishment is turning on Sarrazin, although the Chairman of the SPD Sigmar Gabriel has conceded that ‘I think we are experiencing much of what he is describing in (the book). There is no question.’ Reuters reports that the Bundesbank board has stated that Sarrazin’s comments had ‘hurt the image of the Bundesbank.’ It claimed that ‘Discrimination had no place at the bank.’ Furthermore, Merkel had ‘urged the central bank to act.’ The implication is that Merkel would like to see Sarrazin removed from the executive board of the Bundesbank. Such a move would however be subject to a legal challenge, as Sarrazin has pointed out that it could ‘only remove him for serious misconduct.’
By pointing out that Muslim citizens are a net economic drain on Germany, that they resist integration and are more prone to commit acts of violence Sarrazin has done nothing more than his public duty. He is justified in stating "I don't want us to end up as strangers in our own land, not even on a regional basis." Who could object to that? Alas, the numbers who do are legion: those brainwashed by the politically correct ideology of multiculturalism.
As the Tundra Tabloids points out, Nicolai Sennels, a Danish psychologist who for a number of years worked to try and rehabilitate Muslim youth offenders came to the conclusion that they were simply unreformable because they possessed a radically different mentality to native Danes. He became disillusioned with his work and wrote a book on his experience and thus incurred the condescending wrath of the politically correct. It is worth quoting Sennels at length, for his characterisation of the Islamic problem in Europe is, I think, factually correct:
We are in the historical embarrassing situation that we have invited millions of people to our continent that do not want to integrate and are also not able to. Since the integration of Muslims will never happen – a fact I think that has already been proven years ago – we will end up with a significant part of our population that are actively working to Islamize our societies. There exist both Muslims and non-Muslims that see this Islamization as Islamic jihad – but it is more than that: it is human nature. People who do not feel at home where they live will naturally strive to change their surroundings. Muslims attempts to Islamize our societies have just begun — as they are feeling stronger and stronger in power and numbers. This process is pushed forward by Muslim leaders inside and outside Europe and helped on its way by a kind of collective cowardice called Political Correctness.The concerns articulated by Sennels and Sarrazin are widely shared by ordinary members of the public across Europe who have had direct experience of the negative impact of Islamisation. Currently, Geert Wilders is the most obvious and successful political manifestation of this concern, but the question is: will more political figures make the personally perilous transition from political to factual correctness in speaking about the Islamic issue in our societies? We are still a long way from a political tipping point where this could become possible, but it seems that the ugly reality of the Islamic colonisation of European societies may finally be dawning upon some of the members of our political elites who can afford to insulate themselves from the negative impact of this process. Nonetheless, although Germany's political elite may be embarrassed by Sarrazin's views, his opinions certainly possess some traction with the German electorate, with an opinion poll conducted last Saturday indicating that 18% of respondents would vote for a party led by Sarrazin.
Unfortunately I fear that those who are ideologically committed to multiculturalism may never awaken to Islam’s dangers, no matter what horrors the future may hold for us. According to a recent report in Deutsche Welle, a 36 year-old German-born Islamist named Ahmed S from Hamburg was captured in Afghanistan in early July and ‘has warned of possible terrorist attacks in Germany and elsewhere in Europe.’ He had joined the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) and was linked to Hamburg’s recently closed Taiba mosque which served as the meeting place for the 9/11 terrorists. This information was extracted following interrogation by the Americans. Hopefully, any such plans (if they prove to be real) will be disrupted, but even if the tactics of violent jihad should fail, Germany’s current policies run a strong risk of allowing demographic jihad to succeed. This is why Sarrazin’s book should be welcomed rather than reviled.
