Feel free to respond whenever you want. Until then, allow me to give you some further food for thought by going into some of the things you wrote in your last post directed at Hehehe. I should point out that I agree with some of your observations, like the unneeded pathos and the dumb title of the email. But saying where I disagree is more fun! First of all, I wouldn't be so quick to label the AfD as a "far-right" party. AfD voters come from the entire political spectrum, including SPD, PdL and the Greens (albeit most come from CDU). I myself will be voting for the AfD, and I have always considered myself as being on the left, although meanwhile I am not sure what the terms "left" and "right" even mean anymore. The main reasons I will vote for the AfD are their propagation of more direct democracy (a traditionally left stance), the fact that they are the only party with a common sense approach to immigration, the fact that they are the only party to talk honestly about Islam, and their striving to correct the overhasty renunciation of nuclear energy. I don't agree with everything they stand for, and, as in all parties, there are figures with dubious opinions and rhetoric. But all in all, in comparison to other parties I think they base their positions more on facts and on what is good for the German people, rather than on ideology or on what may seem good for the party in the short run. I know many AfD voters who think just like I do, who definitely wouldn't consider themselves "far-right". That other parties and the mainstream media have tried to denigrate the AfD in this way instead of discussing the content of their party program says more about them than it does about the AfD. Second, while I don't know this particular politician, and I certainly wouldn't say some of the things the way he does, that doesn't mean that we can dismiss everything he says. For example, his citing the Spiegel that "Muslims make up only 9% of Berlin's population, yet account for 70% of young repeat criminals" is an utterly shocking fact and addresses a serious problem. We cannot just ignore this fact because we don't like the party the politican is affiliated to. Third, while I'd be hesitant to ascribe the crime problems we see in every larger city in Germany to "Islamic culture", the correlation between Muslims and crime cannot go unnoticed. To me, the issue is not so much that Islam promotes crime, rather that adherence to Islam impedes on integration and promotes an "us vs them"-mentality. The resulting lack of integration into society then leads to an increased crime rate. Fourth, the term "no go zones" is commonly misunderstood. The issue is not that you will get lynched the moment you enter such an area. Rather it is increasingly problematic to visit (let alone live) in such an area if you do not belong to the tribe and don't abide to the rules. E.g. there are certain areas in many German cities which are dangerous to walk for girls and women if they are unveiled, or where you quickly notice that you are not accepted, reactions ranging from suspicious looks to open hostility. Crimes in such areas are swiftly covered up by the residents, making it difficult if not impossible for the police to investigate. Instead sharia courts often take care of the administration, past the German justice system. Such parallel societies exist only in Islamic contexts - and they are visible throughout the cities of Western Europe. Fifth, I am happy that you acknowledge that the far-left, in form of the Antifa and other groups is causing huge problems for the police, and are a much bigger danger than the right. This however does not attenuate the problems of growing Islamic parallel societies and high crime rates among Muslims. To conclude, I don't consider the problem to be multiculturalism in its literal sense, but rather biculturalism. All other cultures get along just fine with each other. It is only one culture that causes problems, and always has caused problems whenever and wherever it has spread to. The issue, to put it in the broadest sense, is one of the civilized world (including many moderate Muslims) against traditional Islam. To bring it back to the thread title, considering that many of the problems related to Islam already existed before 2015, considering that we were unable to integrate large parts of the Muslim population into our society, considering that Merkel herself had admitted in 2011 that multiculturalism had failed, it seems like a completely idiotic thing to do to bring in millions of more Muslims, unvetted, from the most backward areas of the world.
