While the media cheered on Angela Merkel’s welcome of mass Muslim migration into Germany, she should be celebrated for warning us against such a policy.
We all heard of the mass sex attacks on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. You can see in the chart below a live map charting alleged rapes (in purple) and attacks on children (red) carried out by migrants… and that particular chart is only from the first two months of this year.
This particular map drew from documents listing over 160 cases of rape and sexual assault, but as the Gatestone Institute noted, 90 percent of assaults don’t make their way into the official crime statistics.
And just the other day, German intelligence warned it had evidence ISIS members had infiltrated their country disguised as refugees.
What has Germany gotten out of this? They’re blowing their 2015 budget surplus to cover the cost of accommodating and resettling refugees, and for no perceived benefit. In fact, anyone who predicted migrants would assimilate into German culture then hold hands and sing kumbaya with the German people couldn’t have been any more delusional. The latest consequence? Sharia-controlled zones.
Via Breitbart: Islamic State and “Sharia Police” stickers have been seen on vehicles in Hamburg, and some fear that extremists may try and harass residents. However, police and security services have denied these reports.
At least one witness has came forward claiming that she has seen Islamic State logos and sharia police slogans on a car in Hamburg. According to the woman, she saw a car at a traffic light populated by three women wearing the Islamic full-face veil, the hood of the car was described as having a large logo on it with a blue border which read: “Sharia Police”.
Now some fear that the so-called sharia patrols that harassed the residents of Wuppertal in 2014 could be returning to German streets, reports Die Welt.
The woman, who preferred to remain anonymous, told the paper that she clearly saw the words “Sharia Police” on the vehicle. The original sharia police were formed in 2014 by radical preacher and Islamic convert Sven Lau. Lau formed the group in order to tackle what he deemed unIslamic or “haram” behaviour in Wuppertal. The group wore high-visibility jackets with the words “Sharia Police” on the back.
The patrols harassed locals in the area who were drinking, gambling, or engaging in any other activity considered socially acceptable in the West which would otherwise be considered haram in Muslim countries. The group also put up stickers – much like their British “Sharia Patrol” counterparts – indicating areas that were “sharia controlled zones” and subject to the Islamic holy law, rather than German secular laws. Alcohol, gambling, music, pornography, prostitution, and drugs were all said to be banned in the area by the group.
Liberals are always saying we should learn from other countries, but what have they learned from this? If you listen to Hillary Clinton, you’ll hear her only complaint about the refugee problem is that we haven’t brought in enough, and instead wants to boost the total 550 percent.
