Germans fear a new influx of refugees

More than two thirds of Germans expect a new wave of refugees to Europe because of the Afghanistan crisis. Accordingly, 70 percent feared an influx of refugees, as a survey by the opinion research institute YouGov on behalf of a German daily revealed.

    A majority of those questioned in the poll from Die Welt, are not in favor of taking in Afghan refugees and distributing them within the EU either. Only 28 percent were in favor of this. On the other hand, 49 percent were of the opinion that the refugees in the neighboring Afghan states should receive financial aid from the EU. Ten percent were generally in favor of a different approach, and 13 percent did not provide any information.

    Meanwhile, FDP General Secretary Volker Wissing called for all Afghan local staff to be included who had worked for Germany in the past two decades. “Germany must take in everyone who has helped Germany,” he told Bild-Live. At the same time, he called for clarification as to why the federal government had so far only evacuated a few local workers. Obviously, it was not properly prepared for the situation, he said.

    It became known over the weekend that among the around 4000 Afghans evacuated from Germany so far, there were only around 100 local workers with 370 family members.

    The federal government has so far flown in well over 10 000 refugees to Germany in recent years. As a response to a request from the AfD parliamentary group reported by Junge Freiheit, 2 453 people classified as “in need of protection” from Turkey and Greece were brought to Germany by plane this year by the end of July alone.

    The costs “for traveling to and from Germany were borne by the German state,” the request said. Most of them were from Syria and Afghanistan. But refugees from the Congo and Somalia were also flown in.

    Between 2017 and 2020, according to the federal government, Germany also received 9 451 people in need of protection to Germany by air. Here, too, travel expenses were borne by the federal government – and thus by the taxpayer. The entries were made via Turkey, Egypt, Kenya, Greece, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Jordan and via the evacuation mechanism of the United Nations Refugee Agency from Libya via Niger.

    The lowest number was 1 467 flown in due to the Corona pandemic last year. The government was unable to provide precise information on the total costs in its response. Between 2010 and 2010 the costs amounted to around 47 million euros. This includes not only the travel costs for the flights, but also the costs for the initial reception, which ends at the latest after a 14-day stay in the Friedland transit camp.

    The AfD member of the Bundestag, Stefan Brander, suspected that due to the numbers that are now rising again, the flow of migrants will “pick up speed again” after the Corona year 2020. “The fact that fewer people were flown in in the ‘lockdown year’ should be compensated for again in 2021, since 2 453 so-called ‘vulnerable people’ were flown to Germany in the months of January to July alone and were flown in completely at Germany’s expense,” he said.

    The taxpayer must shoulder these very expensive costs. “This makes the escape into a luxury trip that the honest German citizen pays for.” That must be ended immediately, demanded Brandner.

    The head of the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Torsten Voss, meanwhile warned of an increasing terrorist threat in Germany after the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan. “I am really concerned about the current developments in Afghanistan,” Voss told the taz.

    There is now a danger that another terrorist haven will open up there, in which the terrorist network Al-Qaeda was reorganizing itself. The decisive factor was whether the Taliban would again set up an “Islamic emirate based on the old model” in the future. One must also observe whether, as in Syria, foreign volunteers were moving to Afghanistan as fighters.

    “All of this could exacerbate the risk situation in Germany in the medium or long term,” warned Voss. The threat situation in this country is already high. “Because ISIS is currently reorganizing itself in cells around the world and trying to make its mark again with attacks. And because the danger from lone perpetrators persists.”

    The terrorist attack on the airport in Kabul, which resulted in numerous deaths, also showed, according to the head of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, that the Islamic State (ISIS) and Taliban are hostile to each other and “that ISIS only allows its Islamist ideology”. An “offshoot” of ISIS had admitted to the bombing last week, he said.

    While Germany wants to take at least 70 000 more Afghans, Japan has taken less that 20. Fifteen days after the fall of the Afghan capital, the Japanese have evacuated only fifteen people out of 500.

    A Japanese and about fifteen Afghans, no more. The planes of the military mission sent by Japan to Afghanistan were certainly able to land in the middle of the week at Kabul international airport but landed on Friday in Pakistan with fewer than 20 individuals in all. The C-2 and the two C-130 planes dispatched had hoped to evacuate around 500 people (some Japanese nationals and especially Afghans who had worked for the Japanese organizations) who wanted to leave the country. But the latter were unable to get to the airport and Tokyo simply ignored them.

    The embassy there was closed on August 15, and Japanese diplomats were exfiltrated to Qatar by British aircraft.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
