The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take more displaced people from Syria and Iraq.
She also said Islam "is not the cause of terrorism" and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.
In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.
Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.
After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be "Merkel's legacy".

Water is not the source of wetness.
Combustion is not the source of fire.
Plutonium is not a source of radiation.
Islam is not a source of terrorism.
Not neccessarily. If she gains votes from the refugees/immigrants, then she stays in office.
For gawd’s sakes people!!!
These “leaders” are EVIL
GET RID of THEM
I believe refugees can vote in Germany.
Are you in a tough election?
Import more voters. :)
Interpretation: she knows she is going to win so pandering no longer necessary, full speed ahead.
Will Merkel move to Russia after she gets the BOOT ?
And we protect this utter nonsense with NATO
She denies reality.
One highly doubts that she believes even slightly that islam "is not the cause of terrorism".
She’s going to lose and, like Obama, is going into “scorched earth” mode. She would rather destroy Germany than admit her own stupidity.
Islam may not be the “cause” of terrorism, but surely Islam nourishes and protects those who ARE terrorists.
Which, in most law codes, contributes greatly to the guilt of the enabler in any of the crimes committed by actual perpetrators.
Maybe not in Sharia Law, though.
More refugees = more protective cover for more terrorists.
I believe she has been successfully blackmailed. Just before she became the import-Islam specialist of the world, she was seen in public with a look of horror and disbelief fixed on her face. She seemed to have a hard time listening when spoken to and bowed her head in horror and shock when walking around. Right around that time I read a rumor somewhere or speculation somewhere that she was being blackmailed a la dirty bomb or nuke-in-place-already and that by importing Islamists she would reduce the threat (as if they would ever hesitate to harm their own). I believe there is some blackmail somewhere - don’t know if it’s personal (her life) or a threat to stability/country (I think more likely) but IMHO she has decided she has no choice but to give in to demands.
German women being raped by Islamic men - those women aren’t worried about terrorism right then.
Would it surprise you if you learned that refugees could vote in Germany?
It would me.
Maybe they can’t, but it sure seems like some lib over there would have sued and the liberal courts would have thrown out any law saying refugees can’t.
It would surprise me. Actually, it surprises me she has any support from her countrymen.
Cue the Twilight Zone music.
