    German federal prosecutors have opened up more than 900 terrorism-related cases so far this year, including 800 related to radical Islamists, according to a report published in the German language newspaper Welt am Sonntag on Sunday. The number of terrorism cases has jumped nearly four-fold compared to last year, when federal prosecutors opened about 250 proceedings. In 2013, there were about 80 terrorism cases in the courts. The sharp rise has stretched manpower at the Karlsruhe-based federal prosecutors office, the newspaper reported. Nearly 300 terrorism cases have been transferred from federal authorities to state prosecutors. […] Not all of the...

  • ‘Merkel understood nothing’: AfD’s fury in east Germany

    10/22/2017 2:56:56 AM PDT · by davikkm · 6 replies
    Cottbus (Germany) (AFP) – Chancellor Angela Merkel hails from Germany’s ex-communist East, yet it is here where the anger against her runs deepest and the far-right protest party AfD has celebrated its strongest gains. The electoral success of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany, which scored 12.6 percent in September 24 elections, stunned much of the country. But in Cottbus, located in the Lusatia coal mining region near the Polish border, many cheered the strong result for the party whose battle cry is “Merkel must go”. In the city of 100,000 people that is dominated by drab Soviet-style tower blocks, the...
  • Do these 9.7 million-year-old teeth suggest EUROPE is the cradle of humanity? [tr]

    The discovery of a set of 9.7-million-year-old teeth has led archaeologists to raise questions about the commonly believed 'out-of-Africa' theory of human origins. The teeth, which were discovered in a former bed of the Rhine river, don't resemble those of any other human species found in Europe or Asia. The find suggests that contrary to popular belief, Europe may be the cradle of humanity.

  • Germany's entire submarine fleet is now out of action

    BERLIN (AP) — All of Germany's six submarines are out of action, and the country's defense minister isn't happy about it. The Kieler Nachrichten newspaper reports that four U-boats are being serviced in boatyards while two others are waiting for a berth. Asked how Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen views the temporary loss of the underwater fleet, her spokesman said Friday that "this is obviously not a good situation." Jens Flosdorff told reporters in Berlin that "we would hope the mission readiness was higher, but sometimes with technology the devil is in the detail."

    Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 10/18/2017 | Harvey Day
    A fascinating collection of photos have resurfaced showing the hardships faced by German-Americans at the brutal height of the First World War. As Europe was ravaged by fighting, German immigrants in the US suffered harassment, internment, lynchings - and even the humiliation of being tarred and feathered. Although a little-remembered part of history today, America was wracked by the fear and paranoia that swept from coast to coast during the Great War. The United States declared war on Germany in April 1917 and helped lead the Allies to victory. But before that, many Americans were terrified of the German threat...

    SALZGITTER, Germany—Late this summer, Nadine Langer took her six-year old to her first day at school. The girl was one of two German children in her class, she said, amid 20, mostly Syrian, refugees. “I am not against foreigners,” said Ms. Langer, 41. “But there is a point where we have to wonder who is integrating whom.” Germany’s 2015 refugee crisis has largely disappeared from the headlines. But in this and other midsize towns, it is continuing to unfold, putting communities under stress, pressuring local coffers and feeding concerns about safety, jobs and the quality of education. Some 140,000 asylum...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/14/17 | Peter Skurkiss
    Is reality starting to dawn on the Germany foreign policy elite?  In a manifesto published in Die Zeit entitled "In Spite of it All, America," these foreign policy experts warn the German political class of the country's growing anti-Americanism. They write something that should be obvious even to the most doltish in Deutschland, namely, Germany is 'strategically' dependent on the U.S. and that the U.S. remains an "indispensable partner for both Germany and Europe and keeps Germany embedded in the West."   Here's an interesting passage.  If the ties to the United States are cut, with them goes the reassurance that other...

    A Muslim burial ground will not exist in Oberhaching, at least in the next few years. The main town council committee decided in its latest meeting. Oberhaching - The town council focused on the harmonious shape of the cemetery in Oberhaching during the 1970s. This is true today and not just for the external form. Tolerance towards other denominations is a self-evident foundation. This also means that there should be no confessional trenches. Also no whole areas from which other believers are excluded. It was precisely this desire that an Islam-confessing family had now expressed to Mayor Stefan Schelle (CSU)....

  • Lufthansa would be interested in 'creating a new Alitalia'

    The CEO of Germany’s Lufthansa has said the company would be interested in buying Italy’s troubled flagship carrier if an opportunity arose to “to create a new Alitalia”. His comments come just days before an October 16th deadline for the submission of bids. Ryanair pulled out of the running earlier this month as it deals with a shortage of pilots that forced it to cancel thousands of flights. Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr told German media on Thursday: “Alitalia as it exists today is not up for debate. But if there was a chance of creating a new Alitalia, then as...

    The German government is still striving to reduce climate-damaging emissions below the level it was in 1990 by 40 percent. But according to internal calculations by the Federal Ministry of the Environment (BMU) recently submitted to Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) newspaper, hard-working power plants and dirty diesel may ruin the government’s ambitious plans. Just a year ago, the German government had predicted a 2020 figure of between 37 and 40 percent. But in May, when the government had to send updated data to Brussels, a maximum of 35.7 percent was reported. And even this figure is now proving to be too...

    A new report says that Israel asked Germany to extend the length of the submarines it planned on purchasing, spooking the Germans, who surmised that Israel wanted the submarines retrofitted to be compatible with nuclear missiles. The report, which was the result of an investigation between Ronan Bergman from Yediot Aharonot and the German Die Zeit newspaper, said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel opposed the request and even demanded the opinion of the German intelligence services, which eventually approved the request. Israel was not aware of the behind the scenes drama. Bergman wrote that the change to make the submarines...

    As discussed here previously, German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have won another term in the recent elections, but she came away damaged with her previous coalition in tatters. In order to rebuild her alliance in the Bundestag she had to make some new friends and offer concessions to historical allies who were refusing to support her over immigration policy. One of the biggest changes coming out of the recent negotiations is that her former hard line on open borders and no limits on the number of migrants they would accept is out the window. Moving forward, there will be a...
  • Communism: A bad idea even in 1844

    Dissident ^ | September 15, 2017 | Joshua Dill
    Throughout the 20th Century, Karl Marx’s visage often appeared on communist banners in the guise of a mighty, bearded prophet, the first and greatest in an array of great thinkers that also included Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. So it may be slightly odd and amusing to think of him in his mid-20s living in Paris as the editor of a magazine. Digging into the letters and writings that Marx produced in those years, and the writings of those who knew him, always turns up something interesting—and occasionally something utterly fascinating. The year was 1844. Hoping to unite German and...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel confirmed on Saturday she would start talks with liberals and Greens to try to form a new coalition government after last month's election.Merkel won a fourth term in the September 24th vote but the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) poached one million votes from her conservative bloc, leaving her without an obvious coalition to lead Europe's largest economy. She has already said she would seek exploratory talks on forming an alliance between her CDU/CSU bloc and two smaller parties, the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) and the ecologist Greens. Merkel said in a speech in the eastern...

    The Brexit-negotiations between Britain and the European Union aren't going as any of those involved hoped beforehand. Brits feel that the EU is demanding too much money from them, while the EU argues that Britain isn't willing to pay enough for their "privilege" to regain their independence. Apparently, in the monstrous European construction, national sovereignty has to be bought. Although most European leaders and EU officials feel that they might be able to get Theresa May to back down, they believe there's one major problem. His name? Boris Johnson. Johnson is Britain's secretary of state. He was also one of...
