As they should protest. Islam will not assimilate into the German culture the would coexist at best. They are unskilled for a developed nations labor force and language barriers for a while or longer depending IF they want to assimilate. Differences in respect to women and by the way few to none of their own...... They have many more limitations and restrictions for diet and daily life unless they assimilate. And each one immigrant will apply for one other or few more from home for visa to stay. With a broken global economy even Germany may struggle.

@MarkG The number of family members seeking reunion is between 4 to 8 for a middle eastern family.(In the report leaked last week estimating 1.5 million migrants this year). Just the beginning of the protest.

Most declined to speak to reporters, referring to them as “lying press,” a term favored by Nazi propagandists such as Joseph Goebbels.

Indeed. And let's not forget PEGIDA founder Lutz Bachmann's penchant for Hitler impersonation:

This is only going to get worse as German economy slows down with VW scandal.

Exactly. And its gona get worse. With kerry announcing a large number of these refugees heading to the US, ordinary americans need to protest too. State governors need to start raising eyebrows.

The young muslim men who've made the journey need to do a 180 and join up with the newly formed Syrian Democratic Forces.

PEGIDA, the German acronym for “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West,”

What a smart movement.

One could say the same about you in Japan.

And you need to go home and get a real job

That is the sort of character assassination that characterizes the lying press. There is no "penchant", there was one photo taken by his hairdresser as a joke, referring to the same parody movie ("he is back") that just started in the cinemas. But the press picks up any option for personal attack and runs with it.

You might want to read the PEGIDA political platform and tell us what exactly there you object to. It is a political movement to protect the existing liberal, huminatarian state and follow its laws --- unlike Merkel, who is breaking laws to push the islamization of Germany and ultimately of Europe.

Why the compulsion to paraphrase Joseph Goebbels?

There is no "penchant," there was one photo taken by his hairdresser as a joke

And he was so appalled, he put it on his Facebook page, to accompany:

a photo of a man wearing the uniform of the US white supremacist organisation Ku Klux Klan accompanied by the slogan: "Three Ks a day keeps the minorities away."

(Wagstyl, Stefan (2015) Financial Times, 21 January edition, "German populist leader quits after Hitler pose emerges")

I could ask the same of them. They claim to be opposed to both misogyny and gender mainstreaming at the same time, but they are clever enough to keep within the law. Sometimes at least. Last December, Der Spiegel (or should that be Das Lügenpresse?) reported:

Movement founder Bachmann is registered with the authorities under the heading "General crime (including violent offences)," and he has a criminal record for offences that include burglary and drug crimes. Another member of the group's middle-class leadership is also registered with authorities under the same category, and a third rally organizer has fraud convictions on his record.

Thank you.

Well the press has been lying most of the time when it came to the migrant crisis,the mainstream media has had entire media blackout on trouble the migrants are stirring up were ever they go from throwing away food and supplies because it had red cross on it to the raping of women who are traveling alone with their children to a safe haven.

All I see in the press is how Hungary, Serbia and Turkey are cruel and Germany are welcoming migrants with open arms.

Good on you sense!

The hypocracy of those who talk about the islamization of Europe! Theyn go back home and don't live in Japan. Many Japanese also complain about the gaijinization of Japan citing too many McDonald's and Hub pubs.

Unlike the Gaijin here, muslims in Europe DO assimilate; at the very least they speak, read, and write the language. How many of the islamophobes here can say the same thing about their lives in Japan?

You mean these people? Muslim "refugees" in Celle last week. Yes, I am sure they are eager to assimilate. I guess "Allah Akbar" means "I want to learn German":

Are they refugees, WilliB? (What's with the "inverted commas"?)

What's the demo about? Why Celle?

Just because they say Allah Akbar DOESN'T MEAN they don't speak the language.

How good is YOUR japanese WiiliB?
