Merkel: Yeah, maybe all these refugees should go home when the war ends

posted at 12:31 pm on January 31, 2016 by Jazz Shaw

We may have finally reached a tipping point in Germany this week. It’s hard to say for sure, but something has changed in the halls of power over there. Whether it’s the gang violence related to the Syrian immigrants, the mass sexual assaults or the rising crime levels, it sounds like Angela Merkel has finally heard the outraged cries of her citizens and might be coming around to facing reality. In a statement released this weekend, she finally conceded that perhaps all of these new arrivals should turn around and go home once the war in Syria winds down. (Sydney Morning Herald)

Merkel said 70 percent of the refugees who fled to Germany from former Yugoslavia in the 1990s had returned.

Horst Seehofer, leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU), the CDU’s Bavarian sister party, has threatened to take the government to court if the flow of asylum seekers is not cut.

Merkel urged other European countries to offer more help “because the numbers need to be reduced even further and must not start to rise again, especially in spring”.

This set of remarks featured a decided shift in long term strategy compared to what we heard from Merkel through the fall and early winter. In addition to the “go home” comments she suggested that other countries needed to carry their fair share of the burden in the spring when better weather will doubtless result in more pedestrian traffic looking to enter the country. On top of that, she repeated calls from other leaders for the border nations of the EU – particularly Greece – to step up enforcement and stem some of the tide.

But beyond that, it’s the choice of terminology Merkel is employing which seems to have shifted. In numerous speeches before this we heard her referring to the new arrivals as “immigrants” and talking about the need for them to assimilate into the culture. The word immigrant wasn’t to be found in this conversation, returning to calling them refugees instead. There was no talk of their adopting the culture of their new homes, but rather a sense of temporary travelers in need of shelter until they can go back where they belong.

Merkel isn’t just getting pressure from the streets on this. Opposition leader Frauke Petry went to the press earlier this week and suggested that border security should consider a significantly more, er… abrupt method of dealing with border jumpers.

AfD leader Frauke Petry told the Mannheimer Morgen newspaper that Germany needed to reduce the influx through agreements with neighbouring Austria and a reinforcement of the EU’s external borders.

But she also said it should not be shy about turning people back and creating “border protection installations” – and that border guards should, if necessary, shoot at migrants trying to enter illegally.

Oddly enough, Petry is probably creating some space for Merkel to move to the right without seeming too “radical” to the more progressive base in her country. When you’ve got somebody from the other party suggesting they simply start shooting the Syrians as they arrive on the shores of Greece or try to sneak into Germany, a suggesting of sending them home when the bombing runs end probably sounds a lot more reasonable.

Germany and the rest of the EU have been engaged in a wide ranging social experiment for some time now. The milk of human kindness seems to have taken on a sour taste as they’ve grappled with the reality of trying to absorb a massive influx of people coming from a very different culture with radically divergent values. The recent terror attacks probably didn’t do much to sweeten the deal either. Common sense may be making a comeback in the European Union in 2016. What remains now is for them to realize they need to help end the conflict in Syria sooner rather than later so they can show their new “guests” the door before there’s an open revolt.

And if you ARE prepared to do so, better do it soon.

What remains now is for them to realize they need to help end the conflict in Syria sooner rather than later so they can show their new “guests” the door before there’s an open revolt.

Otherwise, as we’ve learned in this nation, the political class will find means of delaying the departure until someone starts talking about helping the ‘refugees’ “come out of the shadows” and offering them “legalization with a path to citizenship”.

Time is of the essence.

thatsafactjack on January 31, 2016 at 12:44 PM

That war has been going for well over a thousand years and will never end – it just moves around to different neighborhoods every few years.

dentarthurdent on January 31, 2016 at 12:44 PM

8% of the French population is Muslim.

The UK has similar numbers.

And these guys are fertile and invite there “friends.”

The problem with massive Muslim immigration like is slated to start happening in the United States is not terrorism per se. It’s that it changes (disrupts and degrades) the very nature of a western civilization … Muslimizing it. We don’t want to just reduce Muslim immigration from a select number of jihadist states because that leaves the bulk of Muslim immigration in place.

Trump’s Muslim ban is common sense.

Yet the elitist thinker Ted Cruz rejects Trump’s Muslim ban:

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/cruz-on-trumps-proposed-muslim-ban-no-thats-not-my-policy/article/2577822

Cruz says stop immigration from just a few countries, but that will leave over 90% of the rapidly accelerating level of Muslim immigration in place. I wish Cruz would reconsider.

anotherJoe on January 31, 2016 at 12:44 PM

This is to mollify angry Germans. But the reality is how do you deport people you don’t even know exist? And if you knew they existed, how do you find them? They all look alike and they are all named Mohammad? Third, even if you could find them, how do you get them on a plane because you can’t push them across the border into Poland, France or the Low Countries? They won’t take them. So a plane it is. Fourth, where does the plane land? What country is going to let the planet into their airspace and land and disembark?

Once you have them into your country, that’s it, you can never get them out. That is why you have to have borders to stop them in the first place. Which is why the whole European no borders thing was a disaster waiting to happen. These people walked the whole way, through one country then the next to get to Germany.

How can advanced people be so stupid.

Okay, that’s a rhetorical question. They are lefties, and lefties wanted this to happen.

JugEarsButtHurt on January 31, 2016 at 12:52 PM

So if the war doesn’t end, but drags on for decades, the Syrian refugees get to stay in Germany, raise families in the Sharia tradition, and continue to crowd Germans out of their own towns and villages?

Great job at taking care of the people in your own country, Merkel.

Aitch748 on January 31, 2016 at 12:54 PM

Who is going to make them?
By the time the war is over they will have birthed double their numbers into your nations and every last one of them will be muslim.
They will have raped most of your women, and done so before most reached age of majority. Those who do not give birth to muslim babies will be too damaged to give birth to your future.
You are disgusting woman Merkel, disgusting.

Constitutionalist on January 31, 2016 at 12:54 PM

Funny thing is, Germany, France and the UK can stop a lot of this sooner, if they hadn’t made such drastic cuts to their own military…:Hint Hint:

BUT, they’re lucky: The numbers they’ve taken so far is still LOW. Start now, and MAYBE by end of Summer they’ll have made a dent in exporting them back to Syria or they’re closest known Country of Origin.

BlaxPac on January 31, 2016 at 12:54 PM

This is not what she said. She was just commenting that most of the Yugoslavian refugees went back home therefore one must assume that most of the Syrian refugees will go back home at some point.
There is no government plan to force Syrians back home.
If so, why all the money being spent to assimilate them into German culture? Just give them temporary Visas then kick them out after 2 years.
Lies and BS.

Yugoslavia is nice drive to get to from Germany. Easy for the refugee in Germany to drive home on the weekend and check out the situation.
Plus they are Europeans, not Arabs from the middle east.
Syria is a loooooooong way from Germany. There is no lets drive back for the weekend and check it out.

Merkel is an impetuous fool.

We may have finally reached a tipping point in Germany this week. It’s hard to say for sure, but something has changed in the halls of power over there.

It’s clear what’s happened here. Merkel sees that there are no more Muslims left to import into Germany – she has exhausted the global supply of that coveted and precious human resource.

Now she wants them to return home where they can make babies unconstrained by German law and thereby replenish their numbers to a sufficient level to allow importation into Germany to resume.

The basic problem Merkel faces is the same one that hamstrings socialism in general — eventually it collapses because you run out of other people’s money.

Well, here, Merkel is running out of other people’s people. Or something.

If I were a president of one of the countries unfortunate enough to be attached to Germany via the EU, I’d be warning the German opposition that if they don’t dump Merkel, they’ll be seeing another Versailles like treaty to compensate the rest of Europe for the costs Germany has imposed on them by the invasion Merkel instigated.

I still think Merkel did this, in the way she did, to cause a border security crisis in an effort to further a more integrated EU security force and military, and it got way out of hand. She had been pushing this idea for a long while before this she had this idea of inviting a million foreigners to Germany shorn of any comment on how to get there. In fact, just a few weeks before she mentioned this brilliant idea, she talking about refusing to listen to Brit concerns on other EU matters unless the Brits endorsed the plan for an integrated military.

Dusty on January 31, 2016 at 1:15 PM

Merkel needs to be put in a burqa and sent out of town and the country, at best.

Schadenfreude on January 31, 2016 at 1:16 PM

And how will you force them to return to their homeland? Put them in a concentration like criminal?

Well, to quibble some: The people that were originally put into whats known as “Concentration Camps” were INNOCENT.

They were guilty of nothing more than NOT being like the regime in power….AND they were killed to boot.

These people now, at best they’ll be put in facilities that aren’t any better than a US discount hotel chain, processed by layers of government bureaucrats, until they are sent back to Country of Origin.

At worse? The military does it for the civilian government and expedites shipping them back, by ship or air.

Your big mistake, Merkel, is irreversible!

TheAlamos on January 31, 2016 at 1:03 PM

Not at all. The tipping point will be when they outnumber the citizenry by 5 to 1…which WILL happen, if they’re allowed to stay for longer than 2 years, and the numbers coming in stay the same.

Most of these countries can handle the number NOW, because its still under a average of 1 million. Start NOW, and you got a chance to reverse most of it before years end or sooner.

ExpressoBold on January 31, 2016 at 1:22 PM

Refugee camps, either administered by the UN, or similar to those sponsored by the UN, could be established in the region. Jordan and Turkey have already provided shelter for millions of these migrants, some of whom originated in Syria, and Jordan would welcome some help in providing for the maintenance of the migrants until such a time as they could be returned to their nation(s) of origin.

Saudi Arabia, for instance, has 100,000 air conditioned tents on hand for use during the Haj which could be provided for the immediate use in such a camp, and western nations using oil, markets, and trade as leverage could swiftly convince them of the wisdom of doing so. Iran also has certain vulnerabilities now that they’re engaged in a buying spree and signing trade deals with western nations that could be used to convince them to be charitable.

It costs far less to set up and maintain these camps than it would to allow these people to destroy the tranquility and safety of the communities and citizenry of western nations, and it is a far more humane method of providing shelter since it allows the migrants to return to their nation of origin when hostilities are ended and begin to rebuild their own communities and their lives.

Now that the political cost of trying to keep these ‘refugees’, a large portion of whom are economic migrants rather than refugees and originated in nations other than Syria, has clearly exceeded the value and practicality of keeping them, an arrangement with nations in the region that share the culture and values of the refugees must be reached.

thatsafactjack on January 31, 2016 at 1:24 PM

On top of that, she repeated calls from other leaders for the border nations of the EU – particularly Greece – to step up enforcement and stem some of the tide.

There you go, another one of Merkel’s, “You must expend all the resources you can muster to protect Germany from the idiocy of it’s Chancellor.”

The Greeks ought to tell her they’ll be giving any refugee who shows up a free non-stop rail ticket to Bonn until Merkel pays down Greek debt by 50%.

Islam has no respect for other cultures, and that has been proven over centuries. Bloodlust and slaughter is their way. The only thing that equals Islam in sheer destruction is socialism. Unless we forget how much death and destruction socialism has caused, we only have to look at China, USSR, and the National Socialist German Workers Party. So when you combine Islam with socialism, the outcome is pre-ordained. Why do you think all of these socialist multi-culturist Europeans are so intent on bringing Islamists into Europe?

Pelosi Schmelosi on January 31, 2016 at 2:13 PM

Too bloody late. As long as there is an EUSSR, the ECtHR will find a way to prevent the refugees and migrants from being sent home.

Remember Abu Hamza al-Masri, the hateful Islamist cleric with one eye and two hooked hands?

He was just convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in the US. But, boy did it take FOREVER and part of the reason was the ECtHR.

He was wanted in the US for taking 28 American hostages in Yemen in 1998, ‘advocating jihad in Afghanistan in 2001, supporting James Ujaama in an alleged attempt to establish a “terrorist training camp” in late 1999 and early 2000 near Bly, Oregon, and of providing aid to al-Qaeda.’ The US issued a warrant for his arrest.

The British apprehended him in 2004, but were prevented from extraditing him. They did charge him with something like 20 felonies, including incitement and solicitation/conspiracy to commit murder, etc. He was found guilty of 11 charges and sentenced to 7 years in prison.

During this time, the Brits kept trying to extradite him to the US, but was thwarted at every level from the magistry level to the European Court of Human Rights, which claimed that Hamza wouldn’t be treated ‘humanely’ by the United States.

It has been said on more than one occasion that HM The Queen was INCENSED that we couldn’t get rid of an Egyptian TERRORIST.

FINALLY, in 2012, the EUtHR relented and allowed Hamza to be extradited. In 2014, he was convicted of all 11 terrorism charges. In 2015, he was sentenced to life in prison without benefit of parole.

If that isn’t bad enough, consider this: The UK was made to pay £1 million for his defence. And…

During his time preaching hate in prison and was prevented from being either deported ANYWHERE or extradited to the United States, this Egyptian’s family received in excess of £2.7 MILLION in benefits, not including the use of a £220,000 house and the £9,000 he was paying each year for his children’s tuition to public (meaning PRIVATE) schools.

**********************

Angela Merkel threw open the door, laid out the welcome mat, announced to the 3rd world that everyone was ‘Willkommen’, told her own countrymen ‘Wir schaffen das’ (We will manage this) until Germany couldn’t then she decided that everyone else in the EUSSR has to take ‘their fair share’. Even France, Merkel’s erstwhile partner, balked and said that they didn’t invite in the entire world!

So, while Merkel was taking selfies with young, Muslim men of fighting age, the ‘noblest of nobles’ were engaging in:

* trashing the country

* sexually assaulting and threatening native women (white women are trophies for Muslim conquerors under Islamist interpretation and adherents can do whatever they want to them)

* engaging in gang rape

* defecating in kiddie pools

* masturbating in public hot tubs

* accosting young girls in swimming pools, locker rooms and older females on the street and in cafes and bars

* destroying the private property of the citizens of Germany

* suing Germany for more cash, faster wi-fi, and better food and bigger housing

* marching against German laws and values and demanding the adoption of Sharia law

* demanding that German women wear more modest clothing, stop wearing perfume, and smiling…because they are asking for a big, bad, and hugely hung Muslim man to rip them in two…and, sadly, the new Feminists are backing them – the men- I mean.

* demanding that traditional German hymns containing ‘God’ be rewritten so that ‘God’ is replace with ‘Allah’

* requiring separate entrances to universities and other schools for Muslims and infidels

* demanding the segregation of the sexes, especially from menstruating women.

And, I could go on and on and on and on, but this much is also true:

In addition to the invaders, Merkel should also go home. No need for her to wait for the Syrian war to end.

Don’t go away mad, Mutti Merkel, just go the fvck away.

Lime in the Coconut on January 31, 2016 at 2:15 PM

It was a colossal mistake for Western Civilization to take these refugees.

Doesn’t it seem like we will all be wiped out or enslaved in another century or two?

WisCon on January 31, 2016 at 2:17 PM

Angela Merkel is another childless, German woman. Like too many others, they believed that they didn’t need to actually have children when they could just import enough ‘children’ to sustain their luxurious welfare hammocks.

They didn’t foresee that their ‘imported children’ might prefer one of those luxurious welfare hammocks rather than working to support a bunch of old, white, mainly Christian in culture, wealthy infidels.

Socialists of all stripes always fail to understand this. Incentivisation is required; otherwise, everyone will decide that there really is no reason that they should work when they can remain, at some level, comfortable.

I call this ‘Suicide by Demographics’.

By the way, this is a pretty good timeline:

In the eye of the storm

‘I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.’

Maybe you are correct – I never even thought about it.

And yet your guy supports bringing them in here, and you bash Trump who supports banning them.

fossten on January 31, 2016 at 1:43 PM

Trump supports a temporary, “short term”, “can be ended quickly” ban which in the grand scheme of things is pretty much nothing.

Cruz supports a long-term ban on immigration from places where the terrorists are so we can cut them off from exporting their terror.

Cruz has a positive effect of protecting the nation long term from the worst of them
Trump has no effect at all.

On top of that, Cruz is superior to Trump on immigration in general. And is far superior to Trump on every single other topic of import.

Seth Halpern on January 31, 2016 at 2:48 PM

Just for giggles, does anybody thing that this change in rhetoric is anything but an attempt to take the heat off for a little while? Since when does Merkel, or any member of the EU Nomenklatura listen to the peasants? In fact, if the people want it, they oppose it on principle.

Merkel and a bunch of other European leftist leaders deserve a lifetime in a cell if not outright execution for the hell they have brought upon their citizens

Mr Soames on January 31, 2016 at 3:15 PM

Now that Merkel has opened the flood gates wide, how can the flow of refugees be stopped? I would put money on it that it WILL take shooting to slow down the flood of illegals.

She needs to step down and live with the refugee animals pooping on train platforms and raping everything that moves.

Cleombrotus on January 31, 2016 at 4:40 PM

She knows that war will never be over in her life time or the life time of any of those refugees. Besides, who’s going to force them out when some of the kids will have been born there and will be citizens. Germans lose, Syrians win.

Kissmygrits on January 31, 2016 at 4:55 PM

Wars over? Forget fighting for all of Islam’s 1400 plus years, that part of the world has been fighting each other since stone weapons gave way to bronze. I do not see the conflicts ending any time soon.

That war has been going for well over a thousand years and will never end – it just moves around to different neighborhoods every few years.

People who are still asking why SA isn’t taking refugees missed some of the early discussion. SA is afraid the (nominative) Syrians will be too culturally different to assimilate properly: theSaudis are smarter than the EU is.
Plus, the destabilization and invasion of Europe fits neatly into their own plans.

AesopFan on January 31, 2016 at 7:06 PM

This is not what she said. She was just commenting that most of the Yugoslavian refugees went back home therefore one must assume that most of the Syrian refugees will go back home at some point.
There is no government plan to force Syrians back home.
If so, why all the money being spent to assimilate them into German culture? Just give them temporary Visas then kick them out after 2 years.
Lies and BS.


Merkel is an impetuous fool.

albill on January 31, 2016 at 12:54 PM

Good point.

AesopFan on January 31, 2016 at 7:07 PM

This is to mollify angry Germans. But the reality is how do you deport people you don’t even know exist? And if you knew they existed, how do you find them? They all look alike and they are all named Mohammad? Third, even if you could find them, how do you get them on a plane because you can’t push them across the border into Poland, France or the Low Countries? They won’t take them. So a plane it is. Fourth, where does the plane land? What country is going to let the planet into their airspace and land and disembark?

Once you have them into your country, that’s it, you can never get them out. That is why you have to have borders to stop them in the first place. Which is why the whole European no borders thing was a disaster waiting to happen. These people walked the whole way, through one country then the next to get to Germany.

How can advanced people be so stupid.

Okay, that’s a rhetorical question. They are lefties, and lefties wanted this to happen.

Frau Merkel– the latest in a long chain of liars. The people of Germany are as ignorant as the people in America if they believe it. Just a string of never ending lies from politicians.

Glenn Jericho on January 31, 2016 at 7:33 PM

Oddly enough, Petry is probably creating some space for Merkel to move to the right without seeming too “radical” to the more progressive base in her country.

Well Jazz, you are certainly doing your part to make the English language unintelligible or to change it suit the libruls. The word should be reactionary. Radical means to the Left, and is a compliment to the libruls!

AesopFan on January 31, 2016 at 7:06 PM

I never suggested that Saudi Arabia would take the refugees or provide a site for the camps. I suggested they should donate those tents and other support and supplies to help establish camps and maintain the refugees until they can be repatriated. I posted a photograph of the tents being used near Mecca for the Haj to provide an idea of what such a refugee camp might look like once established.

Candidly, if the camps were established and the ‘migrants’ in European nations were informed they’d be shipped to those camps until they could be returned to their nation(s) of origin, many would choose to relocate on their own volition, rather than be placed in a camp. Some of the ‘migrants’ who had been living in Turkey for the last 2-4 years have already decided to return there since they were not supplied with a “small house and given enough money to start a business” as they believed they would be upon their arrival in Germany.

My point is that neighboring nations in the region that share similar cultures should be providing material support for their neighbors and that western nations could use leverage already at hand to see this goal accomplished.

thatsafactjack on January 31, 2016 at 8:03 PM

Political farce from Merkel: Trying to send them home after the fighting is over in 10, 20 or 30 years will be too late. Its now or never.

leader4hru on January 31, 2016 at 8:41 PM

German chancellor Angela Merkel says refugees will return to their homeland, once the war is over.

Looks to me like she is positioning herself for a political position in the US. This sounds just like something we’d hear out of political idiots over here.

She is such an f’ing tool.

Voodoo Chile on January 31, 2016 at 10:40 PM

Merkel is mouthing political platitudes trying to buy time for her and her political party with something she might do in the future… on the twelfth of never.

RJL on February 1, 2016 at 1:06 AM

Simple:

Stop paying them, housing them and feeding them.

Nobody was doing that where they came from – (i.e.Turkey, an nice Islamic country with a more co-operative climate.)

That’s why they came – it wasn’t a desire to wear lederhosen.

Wander on February 1, 2016 at 7:34 AM

Dear leader is going to give a speech at a mosque in Baltimore to tell us how we need to be more like who we are. He’s not going to let some EU tiny country ruler out do him in the importation business.

Kissmygrits on February 1, 2016 at 8:37 AM

What nonsense. The war will drag on for decades. The Europeans will not intervene to stop it. So Merkel is just pretending that there is an exit strategy while still allowing the country to be overrun and destroyed.

bartbeast on February 1, 2016 at 9:08 AM

Yeah, maybe all these refugees should go home when the war ends

Maybe they should all go home and help end the war. Since they’re almost entirely military-age men.

GWB on February 1, 2016 at 9:42 AM

Maybe Trump could write the “refugees” a nasty nite and call them all “awful” “liars” or “pathetic losers”…..all with the power of the Oval Office behind him.

PappyD61 on January 31, 2016 at 1:26 PM

All he has to do is enforce the existing law, which requires deporting illegal aliens where found. Funny thing is, that is exactly what is required of the President… to execute existing law, yet all the other candidates say that is too hard. So why are they running on the concept that they can’t do the job, and why do you support that?

Immigration is my main priority, and Trump is the only true conservative running when it comes to immigration. He enlisted Senator Jeff Sessions to write his immigration policy, and has now hired Sessions’ key aide as senior policy advisor. Perhaps if the other candidates were as serious as Trump on immigration, I’d take them seriously too.

dominigan on February 1, 2016 at 9:55 AM

We hear this sort of talk all the time in the States in regards to illegals, until you see action – it’s just noise in the air.

Ukiah on February 1, 2016 at 10:51 AM

Yep, the German citizens MUST get her kicked out on her behind. End of the war? The war has been going on for 1400 years, Merkel, so what you said is just pure stupidity and criminal and it ain’t gonna fly. Deport them now because otherwise we will see a real civil war in Germany. My spouse’s family is fed up with this brain dead liberal and want her gone and the invaders deported in any way, shape or form, but just out of their country and borders closed! I am still laughing at her thinking the Germans will buy into “a war ending”. They ain’t dumb!
