Congratulations to Angela Merkel on her recent reelection in the Germany Bundestag. Probably more concerning than her recent reelection are the things that he stated in one of her latest speeches, in point of fact the first speech she had made heading into her new term.
“There is no question that our country is historically Christian and Jewish,” Merkel said.“It is also true that Islam has in the meanwhile become part of Germany.”
Many Germans find the developing situation extremely concerning, not just because Germany is headed to a future which was never experienced before throughout the whole millennia-long German history, or in its predecessors, such as Prussia, Bavaria or the Holy Roman Empire, but also because all of these new announcements completely disregard basic democratic principles, the will of the German nation and also the expert opinions of many domestic and foreign experts in economy and commerce. All of these reasons makes Germans whore are tuned in and following the news closely concerned, if not terrified, about their individual and collective future. Even many highly-educated foreigners currently working and living in Germany look at this with utter disbelief.
While Germany’s new interior minister, Horst Seehofer, stated that in his message to Muslims: “Live with us, not parallel to or against us.”
He also added: “The Muslims who live with us are, of course, part of Germany”, going on to say Germany should not give up its own traditions or customs, which had Christianity at their heart.
Germany, as we know it today, is clearly going through a period of radical change right in front of our eyes, however these changes many only manifest in their true forms 50-60 years from now long after they had become irreversible by then.
