Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense.
At the same time, reliable statistics on sex crimes committed by migrants are notoriously elusive. German authorities have repeatedly been accused of underreporting .
The true scale of the crime problem in the country is huge. For example, up to 90 percent of the sex crimes committed in Germany in 2014 do not appear in the official statistics, according to André Schulz, the head of the Association of Criminal Police (Bund Deutscher Kriminalbeamter, BDK).
Development Minister Gerd Müller warned that the biggest refugee movements to Europe are still to come. He said that only 10 percent of the migrants from the chaos in Iraq and Syria have reached Europe so far: “Eight to ten million migrants are still on the way.”
On 25 February 2016, the newspaper, Die Welt, reported that authorities in the German state of Hesse were suppressing information about migrant-related crimes, ostensibly due to a “lack of public interest.”
At the beginning of 2016, Die Welt reported that the suppression of data about migrant criminality is a “Germany-wide phenomenon.”
According to Rainer Wendt, the head of the German police union (Deutschen Polizeigewerkschaft, DPolG), “Every police officer knows he has to meet a particular political expectation. It is better to keep quiet [about migrant crime] because you cannot go wrong.”
In January last year, the newsmagazine, Focus, reported that the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (Antidiskriminierungsstelle des Bundes, ADS) put pressure on police in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) to remove a reference to “North African criminal groups” in a press release.
According to Focus, the ADS wrote: “There is a danger that people from these countries are placed under a general suspicion. We encourage you to delete the reference to the North African origin from the press release.”
NRW Police later removed the offending words because “it could not be excluded that our formulation in the press release could be misunderstood as a discriminatory statement.” The original article by Focus has since been removed from the magazine’s webpage.
On January 8, the newspaper, Bild, published an article titled, “Are the Police Being Prohibited from Telling the Truth?” The paper quoted a high-ranking police official in Frankfurt, who said:
“There are strict instructions from the top not to report offenses committed by refugees. Only direct requests from media representatives regarding specific crimes should be answered. … It is extraordinary that certain offenders are deliberately NOT being reported about and the information is being classified as confidential [nicht pressefrei].”
Because the police are buckling under political pressure from Angela Merkel’s left-leaning coalition, they were sharply criticised for racially profiling “Nafris” on New Year’s Eve in Cologne. Instead they tweeted welcoming messages in Arabic.
“There are written instructions … today we are not allowed to say anything negative about the refugees. This is government journalism, and this leads to a situation in which the public loses their trust in us. This is scandalous.” journalist Wolfgang Herles told Deutschlandfunk public radio.
A Cologne police superintendent revealed that he was ordered to remove the term “rape” from an internal police report about the mass sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. He said that an official at the North-Rhine Westphalia Interior Ministry told him in an angry tone: “This is not rape. Remove this term from your report. Submit a new report.”
The Turkish government has sent 970 clerics — most of whom do not speak German — to lead 900 mosques in Germany that are controlled by the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), a branch of the Turkish government’s Directorate for Religious Affairs, known in Turkish as Diyanet.
Critics accuse Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of using DITIB mosques to promote Islam in Germany.
The rot has started set in. German Judicial authorities are finding “humanitarian” reasons to allow deviant and anti-constitutional behaviour.
In December last year, the trial began of a 45-year-old Iraqi migrant accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy 68 times at a refugee shelter in Spandau, Berlin. The perpetrator said his actions were the result of a “love affair.”
In the same month, a judge in Oldenburg ruled that a 19-year-old Afghan migrant who groped two women at a festival in Bad Zwischenahn was not guilty of sexual assault. “It is quite conceivable that the young man wanted to communicate his interest for the women in this way,” the judge said.
The Roman Catholic Cardinal of Cologne, Rainer Maria Woelki, ridiculed the Alternative for Germany (AfD) for pointing out that Islam was incompatible with the German constitution. “Whoever says ‘yes’ to church towers must also say ‘yes’ to minarets.”
But the Cardinal
In the wake of the Berlin jihadist attack German police found underage migrants at a refugee shelter in Freising watching Islamic State propaganda videos, creating jihadist flags and posing with the insignia of the terrorist organization in front of the camera. “Watching ISIS-videos or crafting an ISIS-flag may indicate that a radicalization process is at an advanced stage,” German authorities said.
But in August last year, Merkel had declared refugees had not brought terrorism to Germany, adding that Islam belonged in the country.
