Heidelberg: Ignorance is the drug of choice

Anyone who has heard of Heidelberg in Germany, probably thinks of a tranquil little town on the Neckar river, a place full of beautiful sights, a well-preserved historic centre with many tourists and students. But that perfect world has been shattered by the recent case from the district of Emmertsgrund.

    At the local elementary school enrollment last Friday, an adult dispute escalated to the point that 18 police patrol cars had to be called in to calm the situation on the first day of school.

    It all started with the argument between a 35-year-old German-Iraqi father and the 26-year-old German-Iraqi mother, who has divorced him. First, there was a verbal confrontation between the woman and her ex-partner.

    When a 33-year-old relative of the child’s mother interfered in the dispute, the 35-year-old became physically involved. The police arrived a short time later at the elementary school to stop the violent altercation.

    Even while the officials were clarifying the facts, other family members joined in the fight between the two parties. Five males attacked the 35-year-old Iraqi despite the presence of the police and assaulted him with blows and kicks.

    They did not stop after he had already fallen to the ground. In particular, a 37-year-old man continued to kick the fallen father in the head. When a policewoman rushed to save the victim, he stabbed the officer with a knife. She suffered a stabbing wound and had to be taken to the hospital with an ambulance.

    Apparently unimpressed by this, the two groups continued to argue so violently that 18 patrol cars had to called in to clean up the situation. Officers used pepper spray and massive physical effort to enforce the arrests.

    In total, the police provisionally arrested three men but released them after completing the neccessary procedures.

    German mothers accompanying their small children to the Heidelberg Elementary School were extremely shocked by the terrible scenes, even though the local people already have a slightly different picture of the current social climate in the university city of Baden-Württemberg – especially in the district of Emmertsgrund.

    A resident whose child once attended the district elementary school said she has been expecting the situation “to crash”. Already in the first week after enrollment, she says, her son was forced by classmates to lick the floor. And it is certainly not the only example of such horrible situations that German children have to face on a daily basis.

    At the same time, anti-German racism entertained by foreigners is openly on display. The foreigners are in most cases in the absolute majority too. German pupils are called “pig-eaters” here, although there has been no pork in the school cafeteria for years due to an official decision.

    Half of the class have missed a joint visit to a synagogue, the parent explained. Islamic education is also offered by the elementary school in Heidelberg.

    “Radical Islam seems to be widespread among the families who send their children to school here,” says a reporter from Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit. “The first thing I saw when I entered the school grounds was a woman in a bright blue burka. The other Muslim mothers also almost all wore a headscarf. Many are even more veiled.”

    As a rule, the Islamic parents do not attend parent evenings, said the young mother. She herself was active in the parents’ council and is keenly aware that the school administration largely ignores these problems.

    “Ignoring problems seems to be the drug of choice at the primary school in Emmertsgrund. Apart from the caretaker, who initially thought I was a police officer, until I enlightened him about my research, nobody wanted to talk to me about the events at the school entrance,” said the reporter.

    A teacher dismissed every attempt to answer questions about the Islamic problem by saying hysterically that she “can not say anything at all”.  She added: “Especially not in front of the children.”

    A mother with a headscarf even claimed that she knew nothing about the incident involving the 18 police patrol cars. And the responsible press officer at the police station in the immediate vicinity of the school, refused to answer questions and said the press office in Mannheim should respond instead.

    Dr. August Hanning, the former director of Germany’s foreign intelligence service, told the British Sunday Express on September 15 that Chancellor Merkel’s  decision to open the country’s borders has endangered domestic security.

    Hanning, who ran the foreign intel service between 1998-2005, said Merkel created a “security crisis” for Germany as well as the other EU member states. “We have seen the consequences of this decision in terms of German public opinion and internal security. We experience problems every day,” said Hanning.

    “We have criminals, terrorist suspects and people who use multiple identities. Those who carried to the Berlin attacks used 12 different identities,” he said. “While things are tighter today, we still have 300 000 people in Germany whose identities we cannot be sure of. That’s a massive security risk.”

    Germany, the largest European recipient of migrants, has witnessed a rapid rise in knife attacks.

    Chancellor Angela Merkel has long been criticised for her ill-fated open-door migrant policy. The fallout has resulted not only in bitter political infighting within the government but also a surge in support for right-wing parties both in Germany and across Europe.

    Alice Weidel, the co-leader together Alexander Gauland) of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany), in a speech in the Bundestag this week addressed the manifold failures of the policies of the current German government – a coalition between the Christian Democrats and the Social Democrats – under the chancellorship of Merkel.

    “Germany is facing a recession. This isn’t just an economic dip, but a tangible decline in economic output. Exports are collapsing by double-digit losses to important export countries: China, Great Britain,” she said.

    “The crisis isn’t coming, the crisis is already here,” according to Weidel. She also alluded to Hanning’s comments during his visit to the UK. “The former federal intelligence service chief, August Hanning, has said that more than two million predominantly young men have immigrated here since in 2015. And the next wave is already just around the corner. The images from Lesbos are the writing on the wall showing that the Turkey Deal that you so loved to cling to for so long has utterly failed.

    “The Balkan route is wide open and you just close your eyes to it,” Weidel said, adding: “Instead, you encourage humanitarian smugglers and traffickers, also known as NGOs. You even allow their illegally smuggled passengers to fly into Germany. And now you want to set up your own state-run water taxi service. This can only be described as grotesque, ladies and gentlemen.”

    She said effective security and border control was possible because the costs would be in the single-digit billion range per year. “That’s nothing in comparison to the economic, political, and above all, the socially consequential costs of continuing unregulated immigration.”

      Why do German people tolerate this?

      • HugoTheImpaler

        I think Germans respect their police. I don’t think that “putting up” with law enforcement defusing a situation is any kind of problem.

    • HugoTheImpaler

      Domestic situations can deteriorate rapidly for all races, nationalities, and religions. Quite often these situations are heightened when it involves young children.

      To make matters even worse, those not in the situation will use racism and xenophobia to attack a particular group they feel inferior too.

      The latter being the most despicable of either situation as there drive is never of passion but of hate.
