In a recent speech, German Chancellor Angela Merkel finally acknowledged the obvious, which is to say, that there are “concerns about Islam” in Germany.
You don’t say, Madame?
At least she’s admitting there’s a problem, but her solution makes me wonder if she’s losing her marbles.
She wants Germans to cling to Christian traditions, like singing Christmas carols and playing the flute.
Yes, Germans taking to the streets of Berlin and Munich, singing "Jingle Bell Rock" while accompanied by a legion of flute players.
Take that, radical Islam!
Is this epiphany heartfelt or is it due to the rapidly changing political landscape as the far-right and openly anti-Islamist AfD party makes significant gains in local elections?
That doesn’t bode well for Merkel heading into next year’s federal election.
But instead of doing something tangible, like closing borders to fake refugees or deporting migrants who behave badly, Merkel wants Christian Germans to sing.
