    A 27-year-old Algerian is accused of setting his refugee accommodation in Düsseldorf on fire following a row over Ramadan meals. The blaze caused millions of euros in damage.

Alongside him, a Moroccan man of the same age was due to face judges, accused of incitement. Last June, the Algerian allegedly set fire to a canteen at the temporary shelter, which was located inside an exhibition hall. …
  • Der Silberjunge: Opening the Borders Was Against German Law — And it Was Planned in Advance

    Gates of Vienna ^ | 16 Jan, 2017 | Baron Bodissey and Thorsten Schulte
    Thorsten Schulte is a German economist and financial expert who runs a website known as Silberjunge (Silverboy). In the following exposé of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s machinations during (and before) the “refugee” crisis, Silberjunge focuses on two major points: 1. The chancellor’s opening of the borders to uncontrolled migration without a directive from the Interior Ministry was a clear violation of German law. 2. The entire migration wave should not even be called a “crisis”, since it was planned in advance. Mr. Schulte provides ample documentation for his assertions. The links are shown in the video, and may be found on...

    Berlin (dpa) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday fired back at US president-elect Donald Trump's denunciation of her liberal stance on refugees and his dismissal of the NATO military alliance as "obsolete."

"My position is also known," she added. In an interview with Germany's Bild and the Times of London, Trump also threatened to impose a hefty tax on German carmakers for selling vehicles in the...

President-elect Trump heavily criticized Chancellor Merkel’s open-door policy on refugees in a joint interview published on Sunday with German tabloid newspaper Bild and British newspaper The Times of London.“I think she made one very catastrophic mistake and that was taking all of these illegals, you know, taking all of the people from wherever they come from,” he said. “And nobody even knows where they come from.

    An undercover reporter who visited 35 asylum centers throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland says security is so bad that they risk fomenting terrorism as radicals can easily infiltrate them and convert vulnerable people to their cause. Investigative reporter and terrorism expert Shams Ul-Haq, 41, was only 15 years old and unable to speak a word of German when he came to Germany from Pakistan, much like many refugees nowadays. He warns that the registration of asylum seekers and conditions found at shelters are so bad, that they could easily lead to dangerous situations across Europe. […] Ul-Haq explained that some...

    After a liberal feminist joined the open borders organization “Refugees Welcome,” she decided to prove that multiculturalism works by taking in a refugee. However, shortly after welcoming the migrant into her home, she was slapped with a brutal dose of reality that she’ll never forget.Sick of being an armchair activist, an unnamed liberal feminist was determined to actually do something that makes a difference in the world. By becoming a member of “Refugees Welcome,” the 20-year-old leftist was told by the website that if she took in a homeless asylum seeker, she’d “get to know a different culture.” Falling for...

    The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that Muslim parents in Switzerland will have to send their children to attend mixed-gender swimming lessons, despite conceding that religious freedoms were being interfered with, on the grounds that mixed-gender swimming lessons were part of a ‘full school curriculum’ and the children’s ‘successful integration’ into society. According to the BBC, the case was initiated by two Swiss nationals of Turkish origin from Basel who wouldn’t send their teenage daughters to compulsory mixed-gender lessons. Swiss education officials, however, said that exemptions were available only for girls who had reached the age of...

In an interview with national news agency DPA, Hans-Georg Maaßen also defended security officials under fire after it emerged that Berlin truck attack suspect Anis Amri had slipped through their net, saying they had done everything they could. Overall, the number of Salafists — or fundamentalist Sunni Muslims — in Germany has risen to more than 9,700, sharply up from 3,800 people in 2011, said Maaßen. “It’s of great concern to us that...

    Cologne police have been accused of racial profiling after targeting men of North African appearance on New Year’s Eve. In the US racial profiling is illegal, but in Germany and the UK, the law isn’t that clear. There is no law in Germany that explicitly prevents a police officer from stopping and checking someone for the way he or she looks. Police in Cologne have drawn some criticism for focusing their attention on men who looked as if they might come from North Africa this past New Year’s Eve. They have denied the accusations of racial profiling, even though the...

The Institute of Contemporary History of Munich (IfZ) said around 85,000 copies of the new annotated version of the Nazi leader's anti-Semitic manifesto had flown off the shelves since its release last January. However, the respected institute said that far from promoting far-right ideology, the publication had enriched a debate on the renewed rise of "authoritarian political views" in contemporary Western society. It had initially planned to print only 4,000 copies...

Some 17,000 asylum seekers were registered as refugees, 47,000 were given a permit due to “alternative needs of protection”, and 5,880 withdrew their applications. “We’re handling it,” the agency’s General Director Mikael Ribbenvik told Sweden’s TT newswire after issuing the figures in a press statement. “In the autumn...

    Chancellor Angela Merkel called on Germans on Saturday to hold firm to democratic values in the face of jihadist terror, urging them to counter “murderers who are full of hate” with compassion and cohesion. In her New Year’s address delivered less than two weeks after a Tunisian suspect rammed a truck into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people, Merkel acknowledged it was “bitter and sickening” that the attack and others in July were carried out by asylum seekers. Nevertheless, she defended her decision in September 2015 to let in tens of thousands fleeing war from mostly Arab...

    A Christian woman was stabbed by an asylum seeker after he heard her reading from the Bible. The 50-year-old woman was only saved by her winter coat when she was attacked with a knife in the accommodation in Timelkam in Vöcklamarkt in Upper Austria. Her alleged attacker is a 22-year-old man from Afghanistan who had taken offense to the fact that the woman had been invited by Christian residents of the property to discuss the Bible. […] When questioned by police, the man accepted he had overreacted, but claimed he was suffering from “personal problems”. …

    Thousands of Muslim refugees are flowing into the small Idaho town of Twin Falls because of closed-door decisions made by a group of self-serving advocates in and around Washington D.C. One key player is Lavinia Limón, CEO of the U.S. Committee on Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI). That’s a government-backed group that is paid to place migrants in Americans’ towns. Her group is also called a “voluntary agency,” or ‘VOLAG.’ The group’s local affiliate, the College of Southern Idaho, has already placed 1,000 Iraqi refugees in Twin Falls. Limón is married to a man that she met in Saudi Arabia while...

    This is yet another story from Rutland, VT where citizens and elected officials have been questioning a resettlement contractor (USCRI) and the federal government for months about the details of the US State Department’s decision to send the FIRST 100 Syrians there perhaps next month!

Miriam Ehtesham-Cating, the English language program director for the Burlington School District, said the focus needs to be on elementary and high school kids, in keeping with the federal government’s requirements...

    Chancellor Angela Merkel is telling Germans in her New Year message that their country is stronger than terrorism and the government will do everything to ensure “security in freedom.” Merkel said in her annual televised address being broadcast Saturday that 2016 had been “a year of severe tests,” the toughest of them Islamic extremist terror. She added, however, that she is “confident for Germany.” On Dec. 19, 12 people were killed in a truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for that rampage, as it did for two attacks in Bavaria in the summer...

    Islamist terrorism is the biggest challenge facing Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel has said in her New Year message. Referring to the deadly truck attack in Berlin by a Tunisian asylum seeker, she said it was "sickening" when acts of terror were carried out by people who had sought protection. She said 2016 had been a year of "severe tests". But she also said she was confident Germany could overcome them. "As we go about our lives and our work, we are saying to the terrorists: 'You are hate-filled murderers, but you do not determine how we live and want to...

The measure comes into force on Sunday and requires policy holders to contribute €5.90 instead of €4.30.

    We’ve seen this sort of thing before in Europe: immediately after some Islamic atrocity, Muslims take to the streets in celebration, honking and shouting, ostensibly because of a wedding. The following video shows events in Berlin on Christmas Eve. According to the notes accompanying the video: The point is: They s*** on our customs and traditions, on us Germans! They don’t really give a damn about the attacks either! Sure, the Islamic associations and unions distance themselves officially, but they would never entertain the idea of demonstrating for the victims with candlelight vigils or anything! And dozens of radical Islamists...

    2 million migrants who arrived in Germany -only 34,000 found work. Angela Merkel went to lay white roses at the scene of the Christmas market attack in Berlin. Thousands of Germans did the same. Many brought candles and cried. But anger and the will to combat the threat remained largely absent. Nothing better describes the present state of Germany than the sad fate of Maria Landenburger, a refugee relief organization worker, ...who welcomed migrants...[Maria] was raped and murdered by [a refugee she was helping]. Her family asked anyone who wanted to pay tribute to their daughter to give money to...
