New poll: : 61% of Germans believe that no more Muslim migrants should be welcomed into Germany
61 percent of Germans demand that no more people from Islamic countries be accepted into Germany.
This is what emerges from a current Insa survey for Bild. As a result, only Green Party voters (51%) want more Muslim immigration. Supporters of all other parties oppose it.
The reason for this investigation was the demonstrations by Hamas supporters in Germany. Recently, a massive Muslim prayer took place in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. 60 percent of those surveyed said they were frightened not only by anti-Israel protests, but also by images of Hamas sympathizers marching in Germany.
Another question from pollsters was: "During the 2015 refugee wave, Angela Merkel said: 'We can do it!' » How do you retrospectively evaluate this statement? » 71.9% responded that they disagreed with this statement. Only 21.8 percent still think this assertion is correct. The head of Insa, Hermann Binkert, commented on this result as follows: “This clear position demonstrates the Germans’ farewell to Angela Merkel’s migration policy. »

Agreed - why don't they go to other muslim countries? Because they won't take them in.
Why does Europe have to take them?
And the word 'assimilation' has been given a bad rap. If you're not willing to adopt the values of the country you so desperately want to move to, then you should be out.
I know it's painting with a broad brush, but there are too many Muslims who want to change the country they move to as opposed to integrating into the country and being grateful for the opportunity.
Muslim countries are a mess - and yet nobody asks why. It's always the former colonial powers' fault. HOW? Most of them were under the Turkish Empire for centuries - and were only under colonial rule for a few decades BECAUSE the Ottoman Empire fell and they had to do something with it.

I became friends with a guy who wanted to learn everything about American culture. He was always asking me about music, movies, politics, sex, idioms—everything and he was genuinely interested and really liked how we did things.
He was an engineer from Pakistan and had a PhD from here and written books, etc. and he was fun to be around. However, he lived across the street from a newly built mosque and would go whenever it is they go.
I always new when he had attended because he would return angry, agitated and start spouting how the US had done this and this in Syria and this and this to another Muslim country and we weren’t doing enough for him and his people here. It was really unsettling.
We drifted apart because I no longer trusted him because of that, and how rich he was at 30, buying 3 homes in a year and some other stuff that made me uneasy.

If there is any such thing as “Islamophobia,” it has a very straightforward explanation.
“Islamophobia” is the expression of distaste many people feel about the murderous behavior of radical Muslims. And while most Muslims in the West don’t engage in such acts, too many are willing to condone them, or fail to condemn them. A lot of people notice that and don’t like it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Islam is fundamentally at odds with Western values. This is coupled with the reality of the lack of integration of many Muslim migrants into Western society. That's not to say that newcomers should forsake their heritage, but many groups who do migrate to the West do work to establish themselves within Western culture. These pro-Palestinian demonstrations are not just increasingly antisemitic, they are also anti-West. Case in point, yesterday in the UK numerous speakers were saying Hamas are not terrorists, America is, the UK is, all white countries are. What's worse is many young people have become so indoctrinated by this idea of "colonialism" (without actually fully understanding the historical context of the Middle East, or the fact that Jews are actually indigenous to the region but were forced out/cleansed by Muslims) they are actively working along side these demonstrations to effectively bring down western values. That is not to say the West is innocent, of course not we've stuck our nose where it doesn't belong for centuries, but honestly it increasingly feels like we're on the cusp of something verrrry nasty.

R24 - that's part of the conditioning where everything in Muslim countries is the West's fault.
Again, British and French rule in the Middle East was for a relatively very short time - in some countries for less than 20 years.
Arabs need to ask themselves why they're not further advanced? Is it because of the Ottoman Empire - that is never ever talked about, even thought they reigned over the region for several hundred years before WW1.
Horrible human rights violations, subjugation of women, anti-science by their clerics and their hardline religious police, highest level of corruption among nation states, massive wealth inequity, extreme censorship.
How are any of those things the West's fault? But somehow we're supposed to believe that 25-40 years of British or French rule completely broke them for life?
There was once amazing technology, arts, education, medicine and learning in the Arab World - more advanced than the Europeans of the same era. What happened? How did that all decline before western powers had ANY influence in the region?
Many say that it was due to Islamic leaders and their fear of science and philosophy making people question Islam. But nobody wants to talk about that.

The other part here is that Muslim countries have been far behind in literacy. On average, most Arab countries had less than 50% literacy rates in the1970s. However, they have caught up but literacy rates are still 10+% points under the global average. Easy to keep people subjugated when they're uninformed.
A large % of the Muslim world NOW is under 30 and highly literate - which you have to think is going to cause problems with the religious powers - hopefully. You see it in Iran with the uprising against hijabs.
Plus there's social media. I hope there's a huge change in the Middle East over the next 20 years - they need to throw off this religious oppression - although it's going to be a tough fight.

All conservative leaning parties in the West are going to run on overhauling immigration and will likely win. Events over the past few weeks have highlighted and further exacerbated the tensions surrounding contemporary notions of multiculturalism (e.g. mass migration without any incentives for newcomers to better integrate into society). It's also highlighting how (for lack of better words) indoctrinated young people have become with this anti-white rhetoric to the point they are actively marching in demonstrations organized by people who are actively against things like queer rights, women's rights or believe that all non-Muslims are infidels.
The reality is that when things become as volatile and unstable as they are now, people vote to the right.

The ultra-religious, Orthodox fundies in Israel are NOT actually Zionist, and couldn't give a shit about the war. This is a common misnomer. In fact, they are vehemently anti-Zionist. Zionism is and always has been a primarily secular Judeo nationalist movement, not a religious one. The Ultra Orthodox oppose it because they do not believe Jewish sovereignty or a mass-return to the Holy Land should be embraced until the temple has been rebuilt and we've entered into the Messianic age. They are happy to stay in Israel for the time being however, so long as all they have to do is study Torah and not work or serve in the IDF or basically contribute to secular society at all. And of course, do what they believe will help to "usher along the Messianic age" (i.e. reclaiming the Temple Mount in Old City Jerusalem), hence their obsession with the WB.
Bibi knows they're batshit crazy of course, but he is happy to court and indulge them in exchange for their votes, because all he cares about is staying in power. And the ultra Orthodox are happy to keep voting him in because they want more power in the knesset and more religious exemptions. They oppose and resent the secular Israelis (of which most are), and want the country to be a complete theocracy. It's a deeply disturbing symbiotic relationship. Very much like the one between the Christian fundies and Trump.
Trust, most Israelis fucking hate the Orthodox fundies and Bibi. They've been trying to oust him for some time.

R74 The marches are constantly being described as "hate marches", even the Home Secretary is calling them that. Obviously there will be some hateful people among the protestors and I'm certainly not defending those, but calling them hate marches makes it sound like at least 51% of the people on them are hateful (and anti semitic) even though most just want peace because it's preferable to innocent people dying every day.
Now the right are constantly saying things like: "Gosh, wouldn't it be so disrespectful and awful if the hate marches were to desecrate the Cenotaph on Remembrance weekend. Ban them", despite the organisers saying the march isn't due to start until 1pm (some two hours after the national silence) and their route doesn't take them near the Cenotaph.
It's getting to the point now where I honestly wouldn't be surprised if some people will pose as protestors this weekend to target the Cenotaph. Then the right can say: "Look, we were right! These people DID target our national monument on Remembrance weekend, this is now evidence that such marches must be banned" and the Home Secretary/PM will only be too quick to oblige, thus eroding some rights to peaceful protest.

Suella Braverman is a populist and her comments are always over the top. But "hate march" does sum up how a lot of people feel when they see the footage of events from those marches/protests.
Swastikas, "keep the world clean of Jews" posters, Hitler references, support for "the resistance" and for "the intifada", for "Palestine 48", Hamas flags, attacking a man holdiing up a Hamas are Terrorists sign, booking calls to release the hostages, screaming at people leaving McDonalds and KFC, setting off fireworks at police. Did you see the video of a muslim woman screaming abuse at an Asian police woman?
Remember all the pro Brexit and anti lockdown/vaccine marches? They were ALL peaceful *except* for the violence and intimidation - like Nick Watt from Newsnight being chased through the street or the guy filming himself with Chris Whitty and other acts of random violence.
As for people "posing as protestors" this weekend, do you realise there are people pretending to be Jews to claim to be "Jews for Palestine"?
What I find deeply offensive is that many on the far right are up for a fight with the pro Palestine protestors and this will appear that they somehow support Israel, when British Jews have made clear they don't want anything to do with Katie Hopkins or Tommy Robinson. These people don't like Jews, they just don't like Muslims/brown people more.

Sadly you get that at pretty much any march and it's either over zealous supporters of whatever's being marched for, or people who don't even care but just turn up with their mates to cause trouble and get into fights.
But, as I said, acting like those sort of protestors make up the majority is disingenuous and is usually said by people who want to get the marches banned, which is why they're motivated to misrepresent them.
[quote]As for people "posing as protestors" this weekend, do you realise there are people pretending to be Jews to claim to be "Jews for Palestine"?
I have no doubt that's true either. There are bad faith actors on both sides, but I genuinely think something WILL happen at the Cenotaph - either planned by people who are against the peace marches (but will pretend they're 'Free Palestine' supporters) - or the people who are constantly saying: "It would be SO bad if it happened...." are only doing so because they want to plant that seed in people's minds. They know that if it happens (by whatever means) it'll change some people's minds and will give the government more grounds to ban such protests going forwards.
It's all one big propaganda war. At the moment the government here is losing said war because people are seeing the death toll of innocent women and children in Gaza and saying enough is enough. Braverman and Sunak know banning marches next weekend is ill advised because it will make them look heavy handed and hence increase support for the marches, so the government needs a stronger reason to ban them. Ultimately if that's how things go I still don't think it'll work because most of the country is sick of the Tories so pretty much anything they do will get criticised regardless of the motivation for it. They're a dead man walking (metaphorically speaking of course).

Oh R81, you really are transparent. "Bad faith actors on both sides". Who is the other side of the Palestine rallies?
The Tories are done and dusted but what is happening with the protests is being talked about up and down the country. People are sharing clips on social media and "it's just a few bad apples" isn't working.
People just find it very uncomfortable that there are protests where those attending are waving the flag of another country and these people would never wave the union jack. And on November 11th/Remembrance Sunday it will feel even more uncomfortable if there are fights with police and other anti social behaviour.
To go back to Muslims Britain is a largely secular country who are ok with faith but who don't think it should play a part in politics.
So why are elected officials resigning from the Labour Party because of Palestine? Why is Palestine more important than bin collections, potholes and leisure centres? Why has the First Minister of Scotland spent more time talking about Gaza than Scotland, where people have lost their homes through flooding? Saying he wants Gazans to come to Scotland for medical treatment is honourable but he leads a "Scotland First" government where people are waiting longer than ever for health care.
Why Palestine and not Syria? Why Palestine and not Iran?

Correction: you are seeing HAMAS' death toll (which has been radically inflated countless times), and you are helping them fight their propaganda war for them. I'm not saying there have not been casualties, and that ANY casualty that involves an innocent isn't tragic, but if I were to wager a guess on the real figure just based off the inflation rates they've used before (not just this war, but spanning the last 20-years), I'd say it's probably closer to 800-1,500 civilians, 2-3 thousand Hamas militants, with many more thousands of injuries. I reckon they are counting all injuries they are treating towards their body count, as that has been their modus operandi in the past.

R42, social media is the big reason I fear we're doomed as it relates to the Islam/The West relations.
I lurked on a pop music forum. It's very multinational. People from all over the world post consistently. I am 43. The average age their is 23 or so.
Every single non Western person is both far left and pro Islam. It's bizarre to read. They hate America. They hate the UK. But they want to live there.
They also hate homophobia/transphobia and always blame "their trash country" for its rampant phobic tendencies. But then if anyone says Islam might be to blame, they call that person out as Islamaphobic. They say that "us Westerners don't get it. Islam is beautiful." Then they compare their fundamentalist to our religious fundamentalists.
It's a mind fuck. Especially, because all the Western Gen Zers who also post TOTALLY agree with them!

R50 Let's get real here, most Muslim majority countries are third-world shitholes. Most migrate (or come as refugees) due to the political situations in their home countries. They do not come here for the quote "social liberalism" of the West, they come here to live in less oppressive/dangerous situations but not out of a desire to integrate themselves with Western values. That's not to say all Muslims in the West don't integrate or aren't moderate (many first generation born in the West are less conservative), but one of my best friends who is first generation Canadian (his parents have disowned him for being gay, his father actually promising to kill him if he ever comes home) said to me once the reason most Muslims don't integrate is because they're Muslim, their religion is at the core of their identity.

R115 this is not true. Gastarbeiter, which have been mainly Turkish, from ex Yugoslavia countries, Greece, South Italy, Spain were not immigrants, they were people with working permits. They had temporary or permanent working permits.
After certain number of years they were allowed to ask citizenship status, but until very recently Germany didn't allow double citizenship, you must decide which one you would take. Many people decided they want to keep their own. Turks particularly, even second generation had the "identity dilemma" and were reluctant to give up their Turkish citizenship, so they welcomed the new legislation which allows them to maintain both identities.

Sorry, the law allowing dual citizenship has not been passed yet. It is still a draft.
The article says: Esad Sahin has lived in Germany for 10 years but is still not a German citizen. The reason: a strict ban on dual nationality that would have obliged him to surrender his Turkish passport.
That was never an option for him. “It’s part of my identity,” he said. “I wanted to become part of German society, but not at the price of my Turkish citizenship.”
Soon he will not have to face such a dilemma. The German parliament is close to passing a nationality law that will make it much easier for foreigners to acquire German citizenship.

[quote][R90] Is it politically incorrect to say that mainstream white liberals are such cucks.
The Pakistani grooming gangs is a bit more complex than that.
Firstly the "looking away" was not *JUST* done because the rapists were Pakistani muslims, it's because the teenager girls were considered rough slags. Remember this is the country where Rolling Stone Bill Wyman "dated" a 13 year old girl when he was in his 40s. The references to the missing girl at the start of the active "People who just disappeared" thread shows that not much has changed - Dataloungers discussing a 13 year old girl "turning tricks". Vile.
A lot of WOMEN understood what was going on with the girls and the gang nature of targeting and recruiting girls and tried to raise it with authorities but a lot of people didn't care. Because the girls were rough slags who put it about for drink and drugs. The BBC's Three Girls drama covers this from multiple angles.
Where the race of the abusers did come in to it was when politicians got involved - at council level (responsible for the provision of social services) and at national government level. Labour has always courted the Muslim vote (see the responses to Israel/Palestine now) and their initial response was dismiss "Asian grooming gangs" as far right hate whipped up by the media. There was also the case of councils not wanting to acknowledge that their social services departments were failing kids.
And then at national level, Labour was run mostly by men who wanted to consolidate power. In 2001 there were race riots in Bradford and Burnley, the home of Alistair Campbell, Tony Blair's right hand man. The issue of immigration and inclusion was strictly off limits and anyone who spoke about was "enabling the far right". When local MP Ann Cryer tried to raise the issue with the Labour government she was told "don't rock the boat". There were begrudging changes to the law but Labour were at great pains to point out it wasn't a muslim/Pakistani issue.

But put blame where it belongs - onto these men! Rochdale, Rotherham, Oxford, Telford, Leeds, Birmingham, Norwich, Burnley, High Wycombe, Leicester, Dewsbury, Middlesbrough, Peterborough, Bristol, Halifax, Newcastle, Huddersfield, and Hull - that's only a partial list.
Muslim culture turns men into these perverts and sexual deviants because rape is somehow justified if a woman isn't accompanied or protected by a man or family member. Literally women are open game - and raping non-Muslim women is OK by them.

They want to 'keep it in perspective' in a broader category of child abuse - but it's fucking not. Thousands of girls in just one of the cases were abused - it's not a 1:1 crime here.

So true R164, all this anti white bigotry has been sponsored by rich and upper middle class liberal Jews. I believe that were not aware that, eventually they would be perceived as white supremacists.

There are 2 distinct groups here - liberal Jews who can "pass" as white and who appreciate they don't experience the same racism as black and Asian people and who support liberal causes like women's rights, black rights, gay rights because it's part of their DNA. I know very few liberal Jews who support Netanyahu and many attended protests that were regularly taking place against his supreme court overhaul plans.
They have some similarities with the far left "anti Zionist" Jews who are consumed by ideology. They believe in white privilege, white supremacy, they despise Israel (despite going on holiday there) and have massively contrarian views to the mainstream Jewish groups and give cover to the extreme antisemites.
I've seen so many comments from Liberal Jews mocking the "Rabbis for Peace" parade held with AOC, Omar, Tlaib etc where they can't read Hebrew, and have put on the black Tefillin straps on their arms in a way that has nothing to do with tradition. They might have Jewish DNA but they have no relationship with the Jewish faith and are cosplaying.
This video is one of Jeremy Corbyn's most high profile "Jewish" anti Israel defenders.

R166 but they tend to believe that trailer park white Christians have the white privilege , not their lazy entitled upper class asses prancing around on the Ivy league universities until daddy finds them some good high income job.

I've never met a white supremacist in my life, but, according to people like R166, they are under every bed and behind every tree.

It's easy to be blind to white supremacy when you're not a named enemy of it, R168.

R167 Right. If there's one thing Jews are known for, it's laziness and privilege. That's why they're the most educated, accomplished ethnic/religious group the world over. I mean, history CLEARLY shows Jews have been blindly handed their success for thousands of years.

R170 I meant upper class liberal golden kids who are playing progressives until they graduate and parents find them position in Goldman sachs or Blackrock.

Germany has the real left lead by charismatic Sahra Wagenknecht, not the "progressive" identitarian left sponsored by billionaires. Of course that the corporate shills that call themselves left accuse her of being populist. She has set up the new party which has surged to around 20% in national polls.
“It is easier to regulate speech,” Sahra once said , “than to raise the minimum wage.”

Corporate "left" is scared of her. They are accusing her of having far right anti immigration politics.
But Wagenknecht (who is herself half Iranian) knows how the uncontrolled mass migration which feeds the corporate hunger for cheap working force, destroys the social cohesion and the poorest communities pay the tall. It is so easy for upper class liberals in their shielded neighborhoods, with their high income jobs, to be generous.
Our country is completely overburdened,” she said, adding that Germany lacked 700,000 flats, and tens of thousands of teachers and day care centre places. “To allow massive immigration in such a situation is just irresponsible.”

A good news story!
The number of people in Bradford's Pakistani community who have married a cousin has fallen sharply in the past 10 years, a study suggests. Higher educational attainment, new family dynamics and changes in immigration rules are thought to be possible reasons.
