This woman is destroying Germany! God help them.
Islam itself is not the source of terrorism and it is critical to include Muslim countries in the fight against Islamist terror, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said.
Ms Merkel, who has been critical of the US ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, made her remarks at the annual Munich Security Conference, with US Vice President Mike Pence in the audience.
The Chancellor said European countries could not fight Islamist terror alone and urged predominantly-Muslim countries to join the fight.
“I think, those countries, first and foremost have to give a contribution. Because only in this way we would be able to convince people that it is not Islam that is the source of terrorism. But a falsely understood Islam,” she said.
Ms Merkel also renewed calls for Islamic religious authorities to speak “clear words on the demarcation of peaceful Islam and terrorism in the name of Islam”.
She added: “We as non-Muslims cannot do this, it should be done by Islamic clergy and authorities.”
Her comments come after US President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning travel to the US from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
However, the Department of Homeland Security suspended the enforcement of Mr Trump’s immigration ban following a nationwide locking of the executive order by a Washington federal judge.
“All this is reflected in our democracy, rule of law and values. They are the opposite of the hate-filled world of terrorism and will prove stronger than it. Together we are stronger. Our state is stronger.”
She defended her decision to allow around a million refugees into the country over the last two years, stressing “how important and right it was for [the] country to help those who really need our protection find their feet here and integrate”.
“We are stronger together. Our state is stronger. Our state is doing everything to guarantee its citizens security in freedom,” she said, before pledging that in 2017 the government will take action quickly “where political or legal changes are necessary”.
The headline reads a bit much into what she said, but its clear she doesn't know anything about or Islam or its history. By her own definition, Muhammad falsely understood Islam because he did the same things as modern day jihadists. It's hard for me to feel sorry for Germany or the rest of Europe for what they are intentionally doing to themselves. This ideology that has taken hold in the West has completely blinded them to the threat they face, and will lead to destruction. The greatest threat is probably not even from the terrorists, but the slow Islamization of Europe through mass immigration. Merkel and her ilk have manged to do what 1400 of Islam could not, conquer Europe.
Hitler destroyed Germany. Why shouldn't a woman have the same opportunity even if the means is somewhat different?
I totally agree, Robert! We must never allow what is happening in Europe to happen here.
This picture of Merkel with Trump is AWESOME! She just can't take it! LOL
“The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over,” she said at a rally in Munich. “I've experienced that in the last few days. We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands.”
