It sucks to be Angela Merkel right now. MASSIVE protests throughout Germany opposing the ‘Open Doors’ policy that has brought 1.1 million refugees into the country.
Germany is still reeling from multiple, horrific terror attacks recently and many citizens are blaming Merkel’s refugee policy.
- July 18 — The vicious attack on a train near Wuerzburg where a Pakistani teenager posing as an Afghan refugee attacked 4 people with an axe and a knife, before being shot dead by police. [ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack.]
- July 22 — The brutal Munich mall shooting, 9 killed (5 under the age of 16) and 35 injured. The attacker was a German-Iranian 18 year old.
- July 24 — A 21-year-old Syrian refugee kills a pregnant woman with a machete in the city of Reutlingen.
- July 24 — In the small city of Ansbach, a 27 year-old Syrian refugee blows himself up and injures 15 people outside of a music festival. [ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack.]
- Don’t forget the New Year’s Eve Cologne rapes and ongoing issues with continued sexual assaults attributed to Refugees. Remember how those rapists taunted Cologne cops saying ‘Angela Merkel invited us’? Read more here

Recent attacks have fuelled the right-wing movement, which has long called for stricter immigration controls, particularly in Bavaria, where she faces heavy criticism from high-profile politicians…
…in a powerful speech on Thursday, Merkel said that she would not allow jihadists to keep her government from being guided by reason and compassion.
‘Despite the great unease these events inspire, fear can’t be the guide for political decisions,’ she said.
‘It is my deep conviction that we cannot let our way of life be destroyed,’ she added.
After the Bavaria attacks, Seehofer initially called into question the principle that asylum seekers should never be sent back to war zones. He later backtracked, citing international law.
