Chancellor Angela Merkel has said her country will continue to accept MUSLIM invaders and welfare parasites seeking refuge in Germany. In her New Year’s speech to the nation, the chancellor also criticized the anti-Islam movement PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West).
DW In her address to the nation, released on the eve of the new year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany would offer support to those who needed help. “It goes without saying that we help them and take in people who seek refuge with us,” the chancellor said.
She pointed out that Germany has received more than 200,000 applications from mainly Muslim asylum seekers this year, making it the country accepting the largest number of refugees in the world.
Merkel also called upon citizens to be wary of the initiators of the anti-Islam PEGIDA movement who have staged several increasingly massive protest rallies across Germany over the last couple months.
She said that such movements discriminated against people with different skin color or religion. “Do not follow people who organize these, for their hearts are cold and often full of prejudice, and even hate,” Merkel appealed.
