Islam is Making Serious Advances in the Balkans

I had trouble to write you this, but please read this email. It is about the current situation in the Balkans and in some cases it is getting serious. I am a 28-year-old Bosnian Serb who currently lives in Croatia. I am a longtime reader of your blog and you’re one of the unsung heroes of our time.

So where do I start when it comes to Islam and the Balkans? I will start from Macedonia, a country which is under tremendous pressure from the EU and its Islamic community. Macedonia is already 35% Muslim, with the capital Skopje being 25% Muslim. I mean North Macedonia has a Muslim majority, where about 16 years there was the Albanian insurgency, but Zoran Zaev, the current Prime Minister of Macedonia, has bigger plans, has an Islamic vision for the country. Zaev, an ethnic Albanian, wants to draw up legislation that will make Macedonia a bi-national state of Macedonians and Albanians, that means abolishing the current Macedonian flag, its symbols and institute bilingualism. The local elections are nearing in Macedonia and Zaev has even more sinister plans. Together with EU money, Zaev plans to build asylum centers for Muslim asylum seekers which come from the worst hellholes of the Muslim Middle East, and those asylum centers will be built in majority Christian Macedonian areas, so Zaev intends to further Islamize Macedonia. From what I saw on Facebook from some Macedonians on an anti-immigration page, there was a petition to stop construction of such monstrosities. Anyways, if Macedonians don’t stop Zaev, Macedonia will be the first domino to fall.

But the most critical stories come from Serbia. I mean no country has such a treasonous leadership in Eastern Europe like Serbia. Its leadership, under the advice of Angela Merkel, the EU and other international organizations, is rushing to destroy what is left of Serbia, starting with the fact that Serbia is one of the hardest-hit countries when it came to the migrant invasion of 2015. Instead of building a fence together with Macedonia, Aleksandar Vucic and his government have listened to Merkel, and the citizens of Serbia are paying the price two years later. It isn’t reported in the media, but Serbia has been hit by migrant crime, rape and terror, especially the northern region of Vojvodina, where there are migrant camps. The towns of Sid, Subotica and Sombor are under siege by Muslim asylum seekers who rob, attack and rape local citizens. Parts of Belgrade are turning into war zones where migrants attack police officers. In Obrenovac, a town near Belgrade, asylum seekers, the so-called rocket scientists and engineers as Merkel called them, have raped a 13-year-old boy last year. Meanwhile Vucic is doing his best to accommodate the asylum seekers, which includes a plan to colonize Serbia, especially the southeastern parts which border with Bulgaria. Currently in Serbia there are 4000-6000 Muslim asylum seekers, and they are wreaking havoc. Just recently, I have read there are 1000 migrant children, and all of them are going to Serbian schools with Serbian children, and the Serbian government has kept it under the rug, until a group of parents in Sid (a border town with Croatia) have organized protests and gave an ultimatum not to send migrant children in their schools, which has successfully worked. However, other schools have received migrant children (which included the town of Adasevci where they put 40 migrant children in a school 150 children) and Serbian children together with their parents and teachers are in a world of hurt in a year or two. All this comes just 17 years after the NATO bombing of Serbia and only 14 years after the pogrom of Serbs in Kosovo, but some Serbs see the parallels with what happened in Kosovo and the 2015 Muslim invasion, which two years later is starting to wreck the country.

A Far-Right Party Just Became the Third-Largest Force in the German Bundestag. Here’s What It Means.

Not since the 1950s has a right-wing nationalist party sat in the German Bundestag. The utter devastation wreaked by World War II, as well as stringent laws against Holocaust denial and expressions of support for the defeated Nazi regime, placed a taboo on extreme right-wing politics in Germany. Six decades of political immunity to the far right came to an end yesterday, when the Alternative for Deutschland (AfD) won over 13 percent in Germany’s federal election, making it the third largest party in the Bundestag. German politics just went from being reassuringly boring to ominously contentious.

Consider: For the past four years, Germany was governed by the country’s two largest parties, Angela Merkel’s center right Christian Democrats and the center left Social Democrats, in a “grand coalition.” On Sunday, both parties suffered their worst performances since the creation of the Federal Republic in 1949 (as did the CDU’s Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union). The decline of the two “people’s parties” (Volksparteien) has coincided with a movement towards the extremes, with voters flocking to the AfD and post-communist Left Party.

What was once a stable and predictable political dispensation has now been overturned. The Social Democrats, rightly indignant that four years as Merkel’s second fiddle weakened their appeal, have ruled out another grand coalition and will enter opposition. This leaves Merkel with only one possible option to form a government: A coalition composed of her CDU/CSU alliance, the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) and the Greens, known as “Jamaica” due to the parties’ colors (black, yellow, and, obviously, green). This will not be an easy partnership to assemble, what with the FDP and Greens sharing serious doctrinal and personal differences (both appeal to the same white collar, upper middle class, bourgeois constituency and share the sort of resentment that is natural between smaller parties). On top of this, the CSU will want to move further right in an effort to win back voters it lost to the AfD, a development that cannot portend well for a coalition with the Greens.

Almost half of crimes in Berlin committed by Muslim migrants

Almost half of the individuals suspected of a recorded crime in Berlin last year were individuals who don’t have a German passport, the latest police statistics show.

The proportion of crimes carried out by immigrants rose to 45 per cent last year, a five per cent increase from 2015, when they comprised 40 per cent of crimes committed in the German capital.

According to Berliner Morgenpost, which reported on the data before a longer version of the city’s crime statistics is published, the figure includes tourists, and “traveling gangs” who specialise in burglaries and pickpocketing.

Foreigners were particularly overrepresented in the figures for certain crimes, according to the statistics, which showed non-German suspects in 91 per cent of pickpocketing offences, 85 per cent of crimes related to heroin trafficking, and 80 per cent of car thefts.

Turkey and Germany: A Worsening Crisis

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The harsh measures taken by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan since the failed coup attempt last year have led to a deepening crisis with a host of Western states, first and foremost with Germany. Since the coup attempt, relations between Ankara and Berlin have been at an unprecedented low. However, in light of their history of close relations, the volume of stable economic trade over the years, and Turkey’s ability to stabilize the waves of immigration to Europe, the countries may yet find a channel of communication in order to contain the crisis.

In the wake of the failed coup attempt against him last year, Turkish President Erdoğan has sought to consolidate his status and convey a message of unity under the banner of democracy against “Turkey’s enemies at home and abroad.” In practice, however, Turkey is experiencing profound internal upheaval. With the object of tightening the regime’s grip on power, the authorities are persecuting public figures and members of the media.

The coup attempt and its failure constitute a political turning point for Turkey. Erdoğan’s oppressive measures have contributed to the strengthening of Islamic and anti-Western circles inside Turkey and exacerbated Ankara’s friction with the West, which strongly opposes the regime’s trampling of individual rights. In addition, geopolitical fluctuations and Washington’s enduring weakness in the Middle East have prompted Ankara to warm its relations with countries such as Russia, Iran, and Qatar, a shift that can have a great impact on Turkey’s energy ambitions and economic needs.

Germany Heading for Four More Years of Pro-EU, Open-Door Migration Policies

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), is on track win a fourth term in office after polls confirmed she won the first and only televised debate with her main election opponent, Martin Schulz, leader of the Social Democratic Union Party (SDP).

A survey for the public broadcaster ARD showed that 55% of viewers thought Merkel was the “more convincing” candidate during the debate, which took place on September 3; only 35% said Schulz came out ahead.

Many observers agreed that Schulz failed to leverage the debate to revive his flagging campaign, while others noted that Schulz’s positions on many issues are virtually indistinguishable from those held by Merkel.

Rainald Becker, an ARD commentator, described the debate as, “More a duet than a duel.”

“Merkel came out as sure, Schulz was hardly able to land a punch,” wrote Heribert Prantl, a commentator at Süddeutsche Zeitung. “The candidate is an honorable man. But being honorable alone will not make him chancellor.”

The axis of destruction

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to fling open the doors of Germany to more than a million migrants from the developing world baffled many. Although only a minority of these migrants were refugees fleeing persecution, with most of them seeking instead the chance of economic opportunities in Europe, it is widely believed that Mrs Merkel saw the presence of at least a proportion of Syrian refugees amongst their number as an opportunity finally to shake off the spectre of her country’s belligerent past and recast its reputation as a nation governed instead by conscience and compassion.

What she triggered, however, was political and social crisis. The migrants brought with them a disproportionate amount of violence, mainly sexual and directed at German women and girls. The political crisis was perhaps not so much in Germany, where she is ahead in pre-election opinion polling, but more widely in Europe where the combination of the Merkel gesture, the knowledge that many more millions were trying to get to Europe and the EU’s own free movement rule raised the spectre of an unmanageable flood of migrants causing social chaos and destroying European identity itself.

As Robert Curry points out sharply in this article: “In World War II, Germany’s conquest of Europe and subsequent defeat left the continent in ruins. This time, however, Germany’s actions seem designed to bring about Europe’s destruction by inviting conquest rather than by initiating it”.

Curry makes the equally sharp point that, far from being on the same historic page as Britain, France and America in the creation of modern western civilisation, Germany stood against it long before the horrors of Nazism. While Britain, France and America produced the Enlightenment, Germany produced the counter-Enlightenment.
