Anti-Islam Demonstrations Increase in Europe

Written by: James W. Huston Published: December 23, 2015

PEGIDA-1-640x480 (1)

 

Anti-Islam demonstrations are continuing in Europe, and particularly in Germany, where PEGIDA, the Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe, wield growing influence. ¬†The press has stopped reporting on the size of their demonstrations, probably because they are growing and the press doesn’t want to encourage them. ¬†Earlier estimates from October had conservatively estimated demonstrations at 20,000. ¬†And they make points few others note. ¬†The German police have admitted they can only check the identities of ten percent of the immigrants flooding into Germany. ¬†The group calls Angela Merkel the “Queen of Crime.” ¬†As I’ve been saying, and as I explore in The Blood Flag, very fertile ground for fringe groups. ¬†You can read more about it ¬†here.

AFG: Tell us what the Blood Flag is?

19381011_NYT_frontpage_Kristallnacht

Fast forward to 1938.  Many laws had been in place to oppress Jews since Hitler took over as Chancellor in 1933.  But it came to a head for the world to see in 1938. It became known as Kristallnacht, or the night of the broken glass.  A thousand Jewish synagogues and seven thousand shops were attacked, leaving broken glass in the streets.  But far worse, more than ninety Jews were murdered, and thirty thousand were arrested and put in concentration camps.

The world was outraged. The US recalled its ambassador, but did not break off relations with Germany.  Roosevelt also refused to ease the restrictions on Jewish immigration to the US.
