There have been some surveys of German public opinion recently. The phrase in German here is "Der Islam gehört zu Deutschland". This is not an easy phrase to translate. It could be rendered in several different ways, each with slightly different connotations. You could translate it as "Islam forms part of Germany", "Islam is part of Germany", "Islam belongs to/in Germany". The statement that "Der Islam gehört zu Deutschland" was made a few years ago by now disgraced and out-of-office German President Christian Wulff. Merkel has also used the phrase since. But 72% of Germans reject the proposition.

A much higher proportion agree with the statement that "Germany is a country of immigration". Note there's an ambiguity in this (in the original German, not the translation). It could be interpreted as saying "Germany has become de facto a country of immigration", which is obviously true, or "Germany should be a country of immigration". 68% agree with this proposition; 28% reject it.


Another international comparison of self-declared patriotism shows that only 9% of Germans are very patriotic.

  1. Have you heard of Frans Timmermans? He's the Vice President of the EC and I think a Jew. Here's a direct quote from him regarding Eastern European opposition to "diversity" (eg genocide and race replacement):

    Frans Timmermans, the Dutch vice-president of the European Commission, said that "diversity was the future of the world," and that Eastern European nations would just have to "get used to that."

    What gall eh? The Jews are no longer being euphemistic or coy, they are outright saying that Europeans must get used to diversity or else.

    You should do an article/expose on Jewish infiltration in the European institutions. I wonder if the eu immigration minister, a Greek named I think Avramopoulos is also Jewish? He has made similar foolhardy decisions on behalf of the European majorities opposed to race replacement.

    1. I did a Google search but all I found out is that it can be a Jewish name. I didn't want to look at his Wikipedia because the sight of him makes me sick.
