German Taxpayer Finances Sharia Loving Refugee Who Has Two Wives and Six Children

Posted by addisethiopia on February 19, 2018

This is not an early April Fool’s Joke:

Chancellor Angela “Mama Syria” Merkel said back in 2010 that multiculturalism was dead in Europe – in 2015 she imported millions of illiterates from monoculture Arab-islamic countries, per orient-express — so that they could be used to destroy multiculturalism — a biological weapon. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

The following story is another prove why they imported millions of Arab Muslims: to persecute the very few Jews, Christians & Africans who still live there. The most ironic part of the story is these Arab Muslims are assisted by „Jewish“ and „Christian“ organizations. I know many Eritrean Christians who are unable to find a tiny apartment, and are still living in refugee camps for three or more years, whereas, the Syrian Sharia-loving man is given a 5-bedroom house – and is allowed to import his second wife.

Indeed, we are in the Last Days

A documentary about a Syrian family on Germany’s Spiegel TV has caused controversy in the country.

The 32-year-old Ahmad A. lives with his two wives and six children in the district of Pinneberg. His second wife was only thirteen years old when Ahmad married her in Syria.

While polygamy is banned in Germany, Ahmad was allowed to bring his second wife to Germany. The decision was based on the fact that she is the mother of four of his children.

Ahmad doesn’t understand the controversy, because he is a devout Muslim and follows the Sharia, which allows polygamy.

The family fled Syria’s capital Aleppo in 2015 via Greece, France and Denmark and is now completely living on benefits.

Ahmad says he always wanted to go to Germany and tells Spiegel Tv: “There’s support here. They give us social benefits, they give us this house.”

Ahmad is happy to be in Germany: “I thank you very, very, very much, Mama Merkel. She is the only person who has felt the suffering of the Syrians. I also thank the Germans, even if there are racists among them. But the Germans have experienced war and show great compassion for the Syrians.

The case of Ahmad and his family isn’t the only one where polygamy is involved. It was reported that 34 refugees imported 130 family members and second wives to Germany. There’s even a case known of one refugee who has 23 children and 4 wives.

German Politicians ‘Alarmed’ at Scale of Anti-Christian Hate Attacks

Posted by addisethiopia on February 6, 2018

Hate crime figures leaked by police in Germany have caused alarm, as they revealed murder, assault, and arson numbering among almost 100 attacks which targeted Christians in 2017.

Published by the Funke media group several months before annual crime statistics are due to be officially released, the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) data showed attacks on churches and Christian symbols accounted for a quarter of the 97 cases.

At least 14 of the cases in the report involved asylum seekers and refugees, including the murder of an Afghan Christian convert by a fellow Afghan in May last year which prompted politicians to urge the BKA to record “anti-Christian crimes” separately for the first time.

Ansgar Heveling, interior policy spokesman for Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, called the figures “alarming” and argued that the state “has a responsibility to punish these attacks severely and consistently… [as] anti-Semitic attacks are rightly being tackled”.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann, of the right-wing Christian Social Union (CSU), told Funke group newspapers: “Integration in Germany has to require tolerating its Christian, Western values and culture without any ifs or buts.”

Berthold Löffler, a political science professor at the University of Ravensburg-Weingarten, said the minister’s use of the word “tolerance” shows how little is actually being asked of the newcomers living at German taxpayers’ expense.

Requiring immigrants take on our values is too much to ask, but they really ought to tolerate us locals, even if they feel our values are a bit suspect,” he characterised the message of Hermann’s statement in a piece published at Tichy’s Insight, where he noted the CSU minister’s “demand” was mild and discussed the country’s “naive welcome culture”.

Stating the BKA figures are likely “only the tip of the iceberg” with regards to the number of anti-Christian attacks taking place in Germany, Löffler writes: “One can confidently assume that the mainstream media would much rather report on Islamophobic incidents and xenophobic crimes committed by ethnic Germans.”

Breitbart London reported last year how anti-Christian attacks had risen 245 per cent in France since 2008, while the number of anti-Muslim attacks saw a huge fall in the same period.

Data released by the French interior ministry showed anti-Christian acts accounting for 90 per cent of attacks on religious buildings and institutions — a figure which includes arson, violence, degradation, threats, and ‘insulting’ vandalism and graffiti.

Last week, it was alleged that French intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of one of the Islamic extremists involved in the beheading of Father Jacques Hamel in a Normandy church in 2016, but failed to act.

Leading German Cardinal Opens the Door to Church Blessings of Homosexual Couples

Selecte Comments:

The Left is Waging War on Christians!

As long as they continue to let Muslims into the country,…..these attacks will only increase !

Why not? The left is anti-Christian anyway. They’re happy to let someone do their dirty work. Similar to the comment that a radical Muslim will kill you, and a moderate Muslim will let a radical kill you.

There is a direct correlation of the attacks on Christians and the number of muslims in any given country… predominately muslim countries have most of it’s Christians martyred in graves

Import people who vow to kill Christians and more violence against Christians breaks out. Who could of seen that one coming?

The invaders getting asked to tolerate Germans in Germany. I’m speechless

Globalist German politicians knew this would happen and are NOT alarmed. They want Christians out and Islam/Sharia in.

Muslims hate all non – muslims. There are 50 muslim countries in the world where they could / shoud go, but no, they come to the west to islamize!

The muslim concept of crime is different from ours, mere mortals.
Killing non -muslims is not a crime for muslims, this is their koranic duty like deceit of non muslims and evening prayer, stealing from non muslims not a crime for muslims, raping non muslim women – not a crime for muslims. Muslim men see raping non muslims as their birthright

Europe is finding this out one victim one woman at a time !

Muslim must not be allowed into the western countries !! It is like opening the prison gates and letting murderers and rapists out.

The Christian world was pretty much united against islam until a German by the name of Martin Luther kicked off the protestant reformation, and the subsequent wars and disunity in Europe which pitted Christian against Christian and sapped Europe of its strength with which it might have eventually pushed islam back once and for all. A few centuries later, a German named Adolf Hitler allied with muslims to wage war on his Christian neighbors, and according to his closest associates planned to eliminate Christianity entirely in Europe and replace it with islam as the new German religion. Less than a century later, yet another German named Angela Merkel invited millions of muslim invaders to flood into Europe, rape women and children, murder priests, and destroy all of Christendom.

So my question is, what is it about Germans that makes them so susceptible to the machinations of the devil against Christianity?

That will be a mystery for me for my entire life….
I think first, the German people were shamed and embarrassed after the War for allowing Hitler to do what he did to Jews, Germany, and Europe…..so they bent over backwards…..way too far.

Because of how they did the Jews and other non-whites – failing to rise up and stop Hitler -they feel they have to accept the murderous Muslims to “prove” they are not the Germans of the Hitler times….they are more afraid of the word “racist” than even we are here in America…..

And Collectivism has been bred deep into successive generations…..They haven’t learned yet that there is a big difference in being acceptive of people who are different but peaceful…..and accepting invaders into your home and allowing them to wreck it and kill you because you are different.
What an oxymoron.

Importing Muslim refugees who were revolting against being ruled by Alawite infidels (i.e. Assad and his sect), and expecting these people to be tolerant of Christian infidels in Germany is nothing short of insane.

Maria of Germany & Her Sisters Launch Campaign Highlighting Increased Violence Against Women as a Result of Mass Migration

Posted by addisethiopia on February 1, 2018

A group of German women have launched a campaign called #120db to lend a voice to women who have been physically or sexually attacked as a result of mass migration policies.

The group, which calls itself 120 Decibels after the sound intensity of rape alarms, launched a video this week in which several members list the names of recent victims of violence committed by asylum seekers.

The women in the video reference the recent case of a young girl called Mia, who was stabbed to death by her former asylum seeker boyfriend in the German city of Kandel, as well as Maria Ladenburger, who was raped and killed allegedly by migrant who lied about being underage, and 11-year-old Ebba Akerlund, who was torn in half after being struck by a lorry during the Stockholm terror attack last year.

They could be me and I could be them,” the women go on to say.”The offenders are everywhere. While jogging in the park, when we come home after work, while we wait for the bus, we are not secure because you are not securing us.”

The women go on to blame mass migration, stating that the borders are not secure, that the authorities have no idea who is coming into the country, and “refuse to deport criminals”.

The number of deportations in Germany decreased in 2017, despite promises from German Chancellor Angela Merkel in late 2016 to deport 100,000 failed asylum seekers.

Because of your immigration policies, we are soon facing a majority of young men who come from archaic societies with no women’s rights,” one of the women states.

The group then calls for the women of Europe to rise up against mass migration promising to take action and declaring that their #120db movement is the “real #MeToo”.

The hashtag elicited many responses on social media platform Twitter supporting the movement, but also some criticising it. One critic, a woman from Germany, labelled the movement “ethnosexism”.

My Note: These beautiful ladies should first fight for the immediate removal from power of Angela Jezebel Merkel – mother of Muslim Syria – and all those disgraceful politicians – otherwise, those assaults will dramatically increase.

Interview With a German Journalist: “Like Many Other Women in Germany, I No Longer Feel Safe.”

Posted by addisethiopia on January 30, 2018

We interviewed German journalist and model Anabel Schunke. She studied political science and history and is one of Germany’s most well-known criticasters of the country’s migration policy. This interview is part one of two. Anabel is active on Twitter and Facebook

How did the admission of so many migrants change your country?

Germany is no longer the same country compared with before 2015. There’s now only one topic: The migration crisis. Of course this is also connected with the discussion about Islam and its “excesses” that we have been experiencing for years in this country through Muslim migrants and those that will come in the future.

This leads to a fatal consequence: We are no longer talking about topics appropriate for a civilised Western society. For example, I’m watching the news and see a report on China and the latest technical and digital innovations which they want to compete with Silicon Valley, and so on.

Meanwhile, in Germany we are discussing wearing headscarves, banning pork in canteens, and Islamic studies in schools. We are clearly missing out on the connection to the top of the world and let us drag ourselves from the migration of mostly deeply backward Islamic countries into the abyss. This should not be allowed by a country whose resources are education, German diligence, recognition abroad and the technical innovations of companies like Siemens.

For Germany, migration is an absolute “backward business”. It divides the country; it shifts the social discourse of the future into the medieval past. The question is no longer: How do we want to live here as Germans in the future and defend our position in the world, but how can we make it as comfortable as possible for Muslims in the name of tolerance? Not to mention the daily attacks, the increase of violent and sexual offenses.

According to German media there were fewer women on the streets of Hamburg during NYE. Is that an effect of migrant (sex) crimes?

Of course, that is an immediate effect of the massive increase in sexual offenses against German women. You know, after each terrorist attack, a mantra is repeated that we will not let our way of life be taken away from us, that we should not be afraid.

Especially for us women, the many reports about violent and sexual offenses have a certain influence

The truth is that the majority of the population does not want to admit that they are afraid and that they don’t do certain things out of fear. The fear of being called a racist is still greater than admitting that you are avoiding these people and certain events.

It’s the same with terror and the massive sexual assaults since 2015 by migrants. You read the news and, especially for us women, the many reports about violent and sexual offenses have a certain influence. More and more women have unpleasant experiences with male migrants. You have to imagine that, according to statistics, of the over 1.5 million migrants 80% are men. During a walk in the city, it doesn’t matter where or when, you will encounter them.

There are no more “safe spaces”. It can happen to you anytime, anywhere

The effects of immigration are now shaping many cityscapes. Almost every woman now experiences how different the looks at them are and the feelings that result from it. It’s like being a piece of cattle.

In addition, there are actual attacks. Of course, there have always been rapes in every country, but the quality and quantity of the attacks have changed completely. It makes no difference to the victim whether she is raped at home by an acquaintance or in public in broad daylight by a migrant stranger, but for society and women’s overall thinking in this country, it has its effects.

That means that the state already calculates that sexual assaults on women will happen

There are no more “safe spaces”. It can happen to you anytime, anywhere, even if you celebrate New Year’s Eve in a large group. The risk of becoming a victim of a sexual offense has become too big and many women have simply withdrawn from public space in order to avoid these risky situations.

Look: On New Year’s Eve so-called “women’s safety areas” were set up in big cities such as Berlin. There were tents where women had the ability to retreat if they were victims of a sex attack or felt threatened and wanted to breathe deeply. That means that the state already calculates that sexual assaults on women will happen: Like there are “zones” now in this country where women are safe and “zones” where they are not safe.

That’s a bankruptcy declaration in matters of state security. Which woman would still leave her house during New Year’s Eve when the state is quasi calculating that she could get sexually assaulted?

Do you still feel safe as a woman in your country and how did, what happened in Cologne, affect you?

Like many other women in Germany, I no longer feel safe. The number of women, who visit me or send me messages on Facebook about their fears or concrete experiences with migrants, is growing continuously.

The problem is that instead of publicly communicating their criticisms or protesting on the street against this policy, most people prefer private “solutions”. You do not celebrate anymore or only in male company, you don’t get dressed any more, avoid certain places etc.

It is cruel to see how women keep silent and are unnoticed by the majority of society, while much of the media attention disappears as well. It is in a weakened form what happened in many Islamic countries after the revitalization of conservative Islam.

The woman becomes invisible. Cologne was the point at which I became really aware of what this particular kind of immigration means, especially for us women, but also for society as a whole. I mean, apart from sexual assaults on women, there was a situation in which the state totally lost control in Cologne for hours.

These men have learned nothing and they are not interested in learning from it

The only reason why such things don’t happen on New Year’s Eve now, is because a massive police presence is preventing it. With the same situation as in the years 2015/16, every year the same riots and sexual assaults would happen.

These men have learned nothing and they are not interested in learning from it. It is their culture. Unveiled Western women, who are having a party and drink alcohol, are according to their understanding sluts who do not want it otherwise.

That shows only one thing: Without a large police force, these men can create anarchy when they want to. They already showed that they can, when thousands gathered in Cologne. They could do that for sexual assaults, thefts or for attacks on “infidels”.

Immigration in this country is a “security catastrophe”, to which we have little to oppose. After Cologne came the moment that I got myself pepper spray and a pocket alarm. It made me realise that we can no longer be protected by the state here, but of course I know that in case of doubt, this will not help.

Now Polygamy is Openly Promoted in Germany: Syrians are Allowed to Bring Their Second Wives

Posted by addisethiopia on January 27, 2018

In northern Germany, in Schleswig-Holstein, a Syrian who arrived in 2015 with four children and his wife is now allowed to catch up with his second wife.

Later he was allowed to bring more children he has with his second wife in Syria to Germany. Then her mother was allowed to follow. The problem: Polygamy are allowed in Syria, but prohibited in Germany.

According to the report, the district administration in Elmshorn confirmed the process. Oliver Carstens, district spokesman, said there was another similar case. In addition, he assumes “a similar number of unknown cases”. The authorization in the specific case is not a blanket rule. The succession of a second wife must be carefully examined in each individual case. A request from WELT remained unanswered so far.

Carstens rejects the accusation that Bigamic marriages are being promoted in the Pinneberg district. An appropriate question had been raised at an internal meeting of the district administration with the heads of the municipal social welfare offices of the district council member Burghard Schalhorn of the Kreiswählergemeinschaft, it is said. Carstens argues that the legality of a marriage is governed solely by the law of the country in which it was concluded. And in Syria, men can have up to four women.

Europe Quietly Destroys Its Past

Posted by addisethiopia on January 24, 2018

The destruction of the St. Lambertus Church is still explosive all over Facebook. This elegant part of Western European heritage took the labour of many skilled men. Now it needs to make way for Green Germany to dig for coal. This fact again shatters the internet myth that Germany gets 80%+ of its energy needs from renewable Green magic.

This sad toppling of a stone pillar of European civilization is not unique. All over France any church is under threat because “ there are laws protecting old trees from indiscriminate cutting. But the state is free to flatten old Christian churches“. This mass destruction mirrors the early Soviet Period from 1917 till Stalin’s Purges of 1937. Obviously not all of them were destroyed. During WWII Stalin’s official “change of heart” lead to the restoration of the Patriarchy. Very quickly after the Revolution it became evident that cutting your entire society from its own past did not built a new Marxist Superman but instead lead to cultural rot. The Soviet Union would remain more or less pro-culture till the end.

Now, at great expense the same buildings that are being destroyed by a culturally masochistic Europe are being restored and rebuilt in Russia.

New cathedrals are also exploding over all corners of the country. This is not to say that Russia is “better” or “pious”. This piece is to say that other people have been down this road and they have turned back. Believing in Christianity is a culture’s choice. But wiping it out of your history when it is so deeply ingrained in it just rots the soul of the population cut off from their past.

Let the Churches stand even if they stand empty. You may not be able to see it but when your culture’s past is gone you will feel that it is missing.

The Mass Brainwashing of Germany

Posted by addisethiopia on January 22, 2018

Brutal German state propaganda to encourage children to be muslims?

German State TV Series: “Lindenstraße” Episode 1084 “Islam”
Murat (Erkan Gündüz is surprised how much Lisa (Santje Peplow) is defending Islam

That little schmaltzy video was a scene from a German State TV series, broadcast in 2006, one year after Angela Merkel became chancellor, and when she was  still pretending to be for  Germany and a “Conservative”.  Then she met Sorros,  Erdogan, Obama etc….and the rest, as they say, is history. The number of Muslims in Germany  then was around 3.3 million. While exact statistics today seem  unreliable, a conservative estimate of over 4.7 million Muslims as of 2015 is said to be conservative.

The series was called “Lindenstrasse” and the young woman who “converted” – or “reverted” as Muslims call it – played the role of a young mother, Lisa, engaged to a Turkish Muslim, Murat,  who was working very hard to earn the money for the wedding. I watched that episode and a few that followed, until I came close to a saccharine overdose. You got a taste of it in the video above.

The storm depression “Friederike” reaches Cologne

Beware rockfall!Warns a sign on the forecourt of the Cologne Cathedral. Because parts of the facade could be loosened, the dome plate was partially closed off.

God’s Anger Is In The Wind

The last couple of days we heard thunder in winter, we saw hailstone pelting down in savage storm.

[Isaiah 29:6]

From the LORD of hosts you will be punished with thunder and earthquake and loud noise, With whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire.

[Ezekiel 13:13]

Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, “I will make a violent wind break out in My wrath. There will also be in My anger a flooding rain and hailstones to consume it in wrath.

I posted this video yesterday:

Everyday Racism: ‘Berlin Isn’t as Cosmopolitan as is Often Claimed’

Posted by addisethiopia on January 13, 2018

Whether it is people touching their hair without asking, or bouncers rejecting them from bars, black people in Germany are used to being treated differently based on the colour of their skin.

Saraya Gomis is the daughter of a German mother and a Senegalese father. At the baker, strangers ask her “where I come from”. At a conference, participants persistently speak English with her even though she answers in accent-free German. In the subway, a stranger starts touching her long braids without asking permission.

“I just grabbed that person’s hair too. Strangely enough, she’s completely freaked out,” she says.

The debate about everyday racism in Germany was revived earlier this month when the painter Noah Becker was racially insulted on social media. A commentary on the Twitter account of Alternative for Germany MP Jens Maier described Becker as a “little half negro”. The tweet referred to an interview in which the son of tennis legend Boris Becker and Barbara Becker said that Berlin was a “white city” compared to Paris and London. He himself had been attacked because of his skin colour, he said.

“Noah Becker expressed what many black people in Germany unfortunately have to put up with every day. They are insulted, they are disadvantaged in their job search, they struggle to find a place to live,” says Christine Lüders, head of the federal anti-discrimination office.

Many black Germans have the feeling that they are not treated like full citizens of the country, Lüders concludes. “We must counteract this impression, including by openly addressing discrimination and clearly putting racists in their place.”

Saraya Gomis is an anti-discrimination commissioner for the Berlin Education Department and volunteers against racism. When she goes to the opera with young Arabs, Turks and black people in the bourgeois Berlin-Charlottenburg district, she experiences “little moments of silence”.

“The silence, those glances – you have to endure them,” she says.

When pupils, parents, and in rare cases teachers, who feel discriminated against on the grounds of their sexual orientation, disability or ethnicity, come to see her, she can relate to them. She has experienced enough discrimination herself in Berlin.

Gomis laughs a lot, even when she talks about embarrassing social situations. In connection with her work against racism she often receives hate mail. The basic tenor of these mails is a feared “genocide against the Germans”. The writers often accuse black people of being “oversexualized and less intelligent”.

Berlin, Gomis says, is by no means as cosmopolitan as is often claimed. People with a migrant background often experience being rejected by restaurants, she states. “You’ll realize half the places aren’t for me. I’ll just have the shisha bar.”

The complaints received by the Federal Anti-Discrimination Office also show that ethnic minorities in Germany need to develop a thick skin.

In one case reported to them, a 19-year-old was travelling by bus from Berlin to Leipzig. She reported that the bus driver greeted her with the words “I’m not going to South Africa”. In the end the bus company sent an apology and a free travel voucher.

Flippant comments hurt in the short term. But other cases have a bigger impact on people’s lives. In one instance a dark-skinned woman was rejected for an apprenticeship at an insurance company. The woman contacted the anti-discrimination office after the insurance company had justified its refusal on the grounds that customers would be afraid of her.

Not every racist action is as clear. Often the person’s ethnicity is not openly discussed. Nevertheless, people with African parents often experience that they receive more rejections in their search for accommodation than others, and are often rejected by bouncers or approached by strangers looking for drugs.

Sometime the misunderstandings happen when Germans are too eager to help.

The journalist Mohamed Amjahid, son of former “guest workers” from Morocco, describes in a book how he desperately tried to report on the new “German welcome culture” at Munich central station in summer 2015, as refugees were arriving in the country.

Instead of answering his questions, an “elderly woman in a dirndl” wanted to force a bar of soap on him. “Soaap is goood “, she repeated persistently – despite the fact that he introduced himself to her as a journalist from Berlin.

Source

My Note: Of the 3.5 million living in Berlin, 850,000 are ‘foreigners’. Around one quarter were of Turkish origin (200.000) There were around 3 million people in Germany who held citizenship of an Arabic country, of which 100,000 live in Berlin.

I remeber a friend of mine once telling me that the main reason many people of Ethiopian origin left Berlin for good was because of rough Arab and Turkish intolerance towards the mainly Christian Ethiopians.

Around May, last year, 15 Eritrean newcomers who were working for a Turkish company in Berlin were fired because they refused to remove their Crucifixes hanging around their necks.
