From the Daily Mail:
Germany’s Angela Merkel said on Monday Islam “belonged to Germany”, in a clear repudiation of anti-immigration protesters gathering in Dresden and other cities.
What is she on about? Or is this a dodgy translation? Islam belongs to Germany? Has she become terribly confused? Does she mean Protestantism belongs to Germany but the religions have become mixed-up is her doddering old woman’s head?
“Protestantism belongs to Germany” would make sense because the six princes protesting the Holy Roman Empire were from Saxony, Brandenburg-Ansbach, Anhalt-Kothen and various other parts of Lower Saxony; and Martin Luther nailed his 99 theses to All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg.
“Islam belongs to Germany” on the other hand makes no damn sense at all. Hey! Do you remember that time Muhammed and his followers moved from Mecca to Munich in 622? No? That’s ’cause it didn’t happen. There weren’t really any Muslims in Germany until the 1960’s (you know, that decade when all western politicans developed a weird brain disease that made them want to import as many sand people as possible). So, Angela Merkel’s nonsense is definitely nonsense whichever way you look at it.
I guess she just doesn’t like that so many Germans, who live in and are from the country that brought us Protestantism, are doing that protesting thing again…
She was speaking hours before marches by a movement dubbed PEGIDA, or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West, were due to begin in several German cities.
Merkel has said PEGIDA’s rallies are organised by people with “hatred in their hearts”.
I guess what the terrible haters in Germany really hate is all that stuff that makes them Germans and what they’d really like is to do is replace it all with non-German stuff… afterall who needs Beethoven when you can have a Mullah reciting the call to prayer through a loudspeaker.
Hang on… I think I’ve become confused now. The point is, somebody has hatred in their heart for Germany, Germans and all things German and I think it might be Angela Merkel.
Angela Merkel hates all things German, including this pretty bunny
