Major Migrant Crisis in Europe (1582)

As millions flee war-torn countries where anti-Semitism is rampant, several world leaders are calling on citizens to challenge this hatred everywhere they find it, especially when it comes to young people with anti-Semitic ideologies.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday urged citizens to remain vigilant and to beware of anti-Semitism especially when directed by young people coming from “countries where hatred of Israel and anti-Semitism is widespread.”

Currently, millions of people are claiming to seek refuge throughout Europe as they flee war-battered nations including Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. 1.5 million refugees including several from throughout the Arab world entered Germany in 2015 alone.

“We have observed in several schools and meeting places (anti-Semitic) events (led) by young people, against which every adult has to act,” Merkel said. “We must also encourage students who think differently.

“We can try to reason (with them) again and again but it should also be clear: (Anti-Semitism) has no place in our society…we must simply put clear limits,” she said.

Josef Schuster, President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, in November raised concern over the growing number of refugees seeking asylum in the country despite leaving behind nations where “hostility toward Israel and anti-Semitism are a common practice.” 

Speaking Saturday, Merkel warned that “Anti-Semitism is more widespread than we imagined. And that is why we must act intensively against it.”

    art, Nice comment man! Here a good article about it as well (in French). reseauinternational.net/le-projet-secret-dun-deuxieme-israel-en-ukraine hope you will like it.
  • The European reaction should be anti-Israel, not anti-Semitism. Israel sponsored overthrow of stable regimes, sponsored the creation of failed states, sponsored terrorist organizations to keep the fires burning and chaos the norm, and thus in effect, sponsored the mass migration of terrified humanity, sprinkled with Israeli sponsored ISIS monsters.

    Mother Gorilla, I am Australian. Your trust in government of any description is misplaced - never trust any government. Have you ever partaken with other people in a role modelling exercise where one part is the government and the other is the people, without any restraints on what government can do?

    I would suggest that you get some friends together just to see what can happen - it is very sobering.

    I wonder why the only true democracy in the Middle East (Israel) has to build those walls and is under constant rocket bombardment (Sderot) from the Arabs. At least Egypt and Jordan can recognize Israel for the friend that it is unlike the so called Palestinians.

    There is only seven Million Israelis (Jews and Arabs) facing 130 million Muslims around their borders who want nothing less than to kill them all. So what has Israel done to deserve such attention?

    Why is it that there are no Jews in any Muslim country?

    Your 'history' of Germany is telling me that you believe all Germans have an inbuilt attitude to the 'untermenschen' and Deutschland Uber Alles!

    Those who Merkel has stupidly 'invited' are not refugees in the true sense of the meaning of the word but mostly young Muslim men of military age who many of have simply disappeared into Gross Deutschland. According to sources there is over 600,000 of them that the authorities have no clue about? What do you think they will be getting up to?

    And with another 3 to 4 million of them poised to come your way in the Spring - what do you think will happen then?

    America died when President Kennedy was assassinated. The America we now see today is nothing but a criminal organization Hell bent on controlling the world.

    terryjohnodgers,
    well, as of January 1, 5-10% of applicants at any border crossing are rejected, up to 3500 can be processed daily without too much trouble, although critics dispute this capacity, but if it is true, then the plan seems to be to let in about another million in 2016 but not much more than that.

    Of course, then there need to be agreements with the other European countries, especially those on the Balkan route, to prevent too many from showing up at the border.

    I don't know how I gave you the impression to trust in governments. All power corrupts, and I would gladly do away with all politicians tomorrow and return to rotating village councils like we have them in some places in Africa.

    Yes, Germans are bad, although they have mellowed down a bit in the decades after WWII. Maybe now America is making them too tough again involving them in all kinds of foreign military missions?

    As for the 600000 missing, I and those around me feel even too well accounted for, we feel red taped and controlled.

    Jet fuel, thanks, very informative article, and very possible since all Victoria Nuland, Petro Poroshenko, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, .. are Jews.

    The article, as expected, does not go deeper into the history of where the Khazars came from. The author also uses term Ashkenazi interchangeable with Khazars, which is as unsupportable as Jews being Semitic, as unsupportable as considering Hungarians as Huns. Author makes another terrible mistake to connect Azeris to Khazars. Overall, Wayne Madson has a firm grip on issues he handles.

    terryjohnodgers, there are three things to connect from your reply and one gets a picture about it quite right :)

    So-called Palestinians - what Israel has done to deserve such attention - Kennedy's assassination.

    Dare I say Palestinians are not "so-called" they are just Palestinians. Dare I say - land? Dare I say the Institute.
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, you can dare all you like, but the 'Palestinian' cause has never been about land. I have no idea from where you source your 'facts' but the issue is all about non-compliance with the Jewish state and under Hamas, the total destruction of Israel. Read about it, it is in the Hamas Charter.

    The 'land' is a Red Herring to take in sleepy Westerners who could not be bothered searching for the truth. When Israel was formed it was on land that has been Jewish for thousands of years, there were no Arabs in that area until Islam conquered Jerusalem in the 8th Century. However, all peoples that the state of Israel would encompass were guaranteed citizenship, many Arabs took it up and their descendants are still there today, but many chose not to take it up and declared war instead against Israel.

    That is why the so called 'Palestinians' - just displaced Arabs - fight today.

    The killing of Kennedy guarded many things that Kennedy was trying to expose, particularly about the military industrial complex and the secret societies who ran it. Look up Eisenhower's farewell speech in 1960 and take on board his warning to the incoming President Kennedy. Then listen to Kennedy's speech to the American Press Corps? in 1962 and take on board what he was getting at.

    terryjohnodgers, I have a few good friends from St Kilda East and Caufield who would disagree with you. It is I suppose just a coincidence that they also have properties in that Jewish state. Still, the Institute wanted Kennedy dead and they succeeded. Still Palestinians number 1.5 million in Israel and that is their name.
  • vendorin reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
    terryjohnodgers, and BTW can you tell me where you live so I can come to your home and then tell you how you are going to comply with my rules. If you do not I will put you in the backyard and build a wall around the garage. Deal?
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, so what? Victoria is full of far-Left Socialists and along with Tasmania are the most communist leaning states in the Commonwealth.
  • vendorin reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
    terryjohnodgers, communist?! Lol. Now I know you are just a teenager.
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, I'm guessing that you received your 'education' after 1970? You appear to have an inquiring mind so why not put it to use and do your own research instead of parroting what others tell you or what you feel is true?

    Your knowledge of history or rather the lack of it, tells me you also lack the gravitas to appreciate how the world really operates.

    A good starting point for you would be to learn about the political spectrum, maybe then you could begin to understand how much you have been hoodwinked by your 'education'.
  • vendorin reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
    terryjohnodgers, blah, blah blah.

    Prove that she is a traitor.
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, there is no wit in ridicule or sarcasm, just an obvious weakness and inability to counter the argument. The evidence of treason is in plain view that many Germans can now see, but you refuse to see it so it would not matter how much 'proof' I could present to you, because your mind is closed and does not wish to be bothered with facts.
  • vendorin reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
    terryjohnodgers, mate, could not be bothered spending time to prove something to an adolescent. Prove it or shut up.
  • Alabama Mothman
    Id like then to end the openly supported white-hatred sponsored by the zionist.
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, which then proves to me what an arrogant person you really are. To offer up an opinion based on research and observation does not give you the right to demand I 'prove' it! I could have just as easily asked you to prove your own position!

    Obviously your mind is closed like so many 'educated' after 1970. I have offered you some thinking to at least partly open that mind of yours but you have chosen to lazy way of fitting in with today's non-critical world and the rest of the sheeple.

    Tough times ahead for you!
  • vendorin reply toterryjohnodgers(Show commentHide comment)
    terryjohnodgers, pathetic! You have not offered an opinion but made an accusation. When you accuse you need to prove it.

    So, prove i! :)
  • terryjohnodgersin reply tovendor(Show commentHide comment)
    vendor, one needs to form an opinion before one can lodge an accusation.

    Look up, The Prague Declaration 'Fortress Europe' PEGIDA. Then read what is now occurring within Europe and then understand the treachery that has been acted out.

    Merkel is a TRAITOR! Now you can take that to the Bank as an opinion or an accusation!
