When German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened her nation’s borders to Syrian war refugees in 2015, it looked like a really bad idea. She may have thought such generosity would earn Germany a pile of Diversity points, but the result was increased movement of people (mostly men) from Africa and Asia headed to Europe. Not all have been friendly to European values since many are Muslim.
Syria had a pre-war population of around 22 million, but six million left during the conflict. First world leaders should consider population numbers before putting out the national welcome mat these days.
Anyway, one big result has been increased crime in Germany, thanks to the Middle Eastern diversity, and some Germans have departed for safer, less diverse Hungary.
Dale Hurd reported that some Germans are missing the wall bordering East Germany that was torn down with such enthusiasm 30 years ago — a wall looks like a good idea now.
30 Years after the Fall of the Berlin Wall, Some Germans Want a New Wall, by Dale Hurd, CBN.com, November 11, 2019
LAKE BALATON, HUNGARY, and BERLIN/FRANKFURT, GERMANY – On Saturday the world celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which led to the reunification of Germany.
But what has Germany become? Not what some had hoped. And the proof of that can be found in Hungary, about two hours west of Budapest, at a place called Lake Balaton. Why mark the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall from a lake in Hungary? Because it’s where a lot of Germans have fled to who are fed up with Angela Merkel’s new Germany.
Germans Fleeing Migrant Crime
The Lake Balaton region is full of Germans who have moved here for all sorts of reasons, but a local real estate agent told us the biggest reason is migrant crime in Germany. ”At the moment our clients are 80 percent German,” Hungarian Real Estate Agent László Kozma told us, “And the main reason is the immigration problem in Germany.”
Kozma says the number of Germans moving to Lake Balaton spiked immediately after Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed over a million mostly Muslim asylum seekers into Germany in 2015, while Hungary has turned migrants away.
“Yes, yes, yes, this is the reason,” Kozma says. “They want to escape to Hungary and live here permanently.”
They include Germans like Gerhardt Boehm, who told us he would never move back. He feels safe in Hungary.
Kozma says there currently are not enough properties in the area for all the German buyers. (Continues)
