Merkel allows White Helmet leader to enter Germany despite intel warnings

The White Helmet leader in Syria, Khalid al-Saleh, has been allowed to enter Germany after a two-and-a-half-year tug-of-war between the Federal Ministry of the Interior and the Foreign Ministry — despite strong suspicions that he may be linked to terrorism.

    The domestic intelligence service, known as the Office for the Protection of the Constitution did not want to allow the leader of the so-called “aid organization” or “civil protection organization”, which has been active in parts of Syria not yet controlled by the government, to be admitted.

    The reason: He is suspected of terrorism. And even if he had not been associated with terrorism, “refugees” in general have been posing a huge societal obstacle in the country.

    On Monday evening, Khalid al-Saleh and his family arrived in Germany on board a German government plane however. They were given a residence permit for “humanitarian reasons”. The family’s address in Germany is being kept secret.

    The federal government had promised to take in four such families. Three received the necessary papers, but the intelligence service intervened to stop Khalid al-Saleh after German officials came to the conclusion that al-Saleh was “in proximity to an Islamist-jihadist worldview”. Messages and images related to jihad had been found on his mobile phone.

    But due to diplomatic pressure, the Merkel administration caved in to demands from Jordan that the White Helmet leader be accepted.

    Mariana Harder-Kühnel, chairwoman of the AfD parliamentary group in Berlin on family policy, was appalled by a government response to a question she posed on the effects of continued immigration.

    “The published figures clearly show where we are headed in Germany. It is no surprise that cities in particular are increasingly turning into nightmares for women. Nevertheless, politicians refrain from addressing these problems. On the contrary: they are played down whenever it is possible. Internal security has been replaced by a ‘welcoming culture’ that is exclusively shaped by left-green ideology and social romanticism, but which in reality causes numerous innocent victims.

    “I urge not only the red-red-green government of Berlin, but also all political leaders nationwide to finally focus on the well-being of citizens — and not the well-being of those who have not lived here for so long. Anyone who, as our guest, rapes women and children has forfeited his right to stay and must leave our country immediately after serving his sentence. All perpetrators, regardless of their origin, must be punished with the full severity of the rule of law.”

    Every ten hours a woman is raped in Berlin and 45 percent of the perpetrators come from abroad. Last year, the police recorded 871 victims, some of whom were even under 14 or over 60 years old. In addition, the number of gang rapes have reached a new high.

    In the media, there has been a constant stream of horror stories involving new immigrants. This week, a 13-year-old girl from Stade, a town in Lower Saxony, was assaulted while out walking a dog. She had been followed by an unknown person for some time.

    After she had given the dog back, the stranger approached her from behind, covered her mouth and put a knife to her neck. The girl screamed loudly anyway, driving the perpetrator away.

    The perpetrator was described as about 170 cm tall and slim, about 17 years old, with a “southern appearance” and dark clothing. The 13-year-old was injured in the attack and suffered from shock. She is sadly one of many victims.

    It is clear that Merkel’s welcoming stance towards immigrants will be advanced by other contenders from her party: During a conversation with journalists from the Association of the Foreign Press in Germany (VAP), Friedrich Merz answered questions about his candidacy for the CDU chairmanship. The topic of a possible coalition partner for the CDU/CSU was also raised. But Merz completely ruled out a cooperation with the AfD.

    “No way, not a millimeter. There is no room for cooperation between AfD and CDU. Zero.” This applies not only to the federal level, but to “all legislative bodies, all parliaments, governments” of German states.

    Not only with a “Merkel CDU” is there no rapprochement in sight as far as immigration policy is concerned, but also with a “Merz CDU”. Also Merz has no objection to a coalition with the Greens, as he also clearly communicated in the interview. The CDU is already working together with the Greens in some state governments.

      “no room for cooperation between AfD and CDU” … So it’s OK to cooperate with Hillary Clinton’s favorite terrorists, but not with the party that’s willing to tell the truth about Islam. A. H8ler said that it was a pity that Islam had not conquered Europe ; now Merkel and Merz are making his long-lost dream come true.

      The White Helmets? These are the people, supposedly recruited from anti-Assad regime Sunni Arabs, that served as a spy network for at least one foreign government. It masqueraded as a volunteer civil defense and rescue organization that operated in primarily jihadist or jihadist support areas. The White Helmets are believed to have facilitated the phony “chemical weapon” attacks as the Assad government, with Russian help, cleared out the ISIS and other jihadist enclaves from central and southern Syria in 2017-2018. The so-called attacks were later shown to have probably been fake, false flag attacks. News reporting at the time linked these incidents to foreign and jihadist elements that had connections to the White Helmets. With the success of Syrian-Russian operations to clear the jihadist enclaves, the White Helmets were quickly evacuated to unspecified European countries. Who were these people, really?
