    Germany will introduce its first civil defense strategy since the end of the Cold War, calling on the population to stockpile enough food and water for several days, according to a report Sunday. The plan, which makes civilian backing of troops a priority while boosting the resilience of buildings and increasing capacity in the healthcare system, is due to be adopted by the government Wednesday, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) daily. [Ö] The strategy noted that ďan attack on German territory requiring conventional defense is unlikely,Ē but said the country should be ďsufficiently prepared in case of an...

    Munich, Germany, Aug 18, 2016 / 03:15 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Never before have so few Catholic priests been ordained in the Church in Germany: a total of 58 men joined the clergy in 2015, according to official figures published by the German Episcopal Conference this week. Within the last decade, the number of ordinations has dropped by half. In 2005, a total of 122 diocesan priests were ordained. Five decades ago, in 1965, the number was 500. While there were almost 20,000 Catholic priests in Germany in 1990, today their number has already dropped to 14,000. The drastic decline is...

    Those of you who thought that German anti-Semitism died in Hitler's bunker were sadly mistaken. I am currently reading German reporter Tuvia 'Tobi' Tenenbaum's Catch the Jew, in which Tenenbaum, who grew up as an Israeli Haredi, poses as a German reporter to gain access to 'Palestinians' and self-hating Jews. One of the things that's striking about the book is how much of the 'Palestinians' day-to-day activities are financed by European government NGO's (yes, that's why we just adopted an NGO law), and how many of those NGO's are financed by Germans. Why? Because many Germans, including those in...

    Germany's government expects to spend around 93.6 billion euros by the end of 2020 on costs related to the refugee crisis, a magazine said on Saturday, citing a draft from the federal finance ministry for negotiations with the country's 16 states. The figure is likely to stoke concerns, particularly among growing anti-immigration movements, on the impact of new arrivals on Europe's largest economy which took in more than a million people last year, many from Syria and other war zones. The numbers arriving have fallen this year, helped by a deal between the European Union and Turkey that was designed...

    Tuition to U.S. universities has surged 500 percent since 1985 and continues to rise. But German universities offer free education to everyone -- including Americans. The number of American students enrolled in German universities has risen steadily in recent years. Currently, an estimated 10,000 U.S. citizens are studying at German colleges -- nearly all of them for free, according to NBC News. German universities in most federal states have traditionally been free for German citizens as well as many foreigners, including many American, Chinese and British students. One reason German taxpayers foot the bill is to help attract more skilled...

At that time, "sexuality had as its first purpose to secure the survival of the people"; however, "that is obviously not any more our situation, and that is since the [Second...

Then the Norman French conquered in 1066 Ė and replaced much of the vocabulary with French, including words which over time became beef, pork, invade, tongue and person.

Beck, who heads the German- Israel parliamentary group in the Bundestag, sharply criticized the Merkel administration: ďHere the federal government has cowered,Ē he said. ďThere is no doubt of the anti-Semitic motivation within the spectrum of the BDS campaign. BDS aims essentially against Jewish Israelis and is therefore anti-Semitic. Whoever aggressively boycotts Israeli...

Includes several semi-historical scenes involving German command (Paulus, Hitler, etc.) and some of the best use of actual war footage I've seen in a movie. In German with English subtitles.

    Our forefathers knew the feeling. One minute there you are, like Brazilís football team on Tuesday, settling down to start a long campaign. The next minute, bewilderingly, it is all over: Germany is master of the field, counting prisoners or ó in this case ó an unprecedented 7-1 triumph in the World Cup semi-final, executed with chilling discipline and precision.
