A startling map shows how Germany is starting to panic about migration

It’s already become clear that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is facing a major political strain over the refugee crisis. The German public initially seemed accepting of refugees, especially in comparison to people in other large European countries.

It doesn’t look like Germans are turning against the idea of hosting people fleeing from conflicts, but the issue is suddenly becoming a political priority. Recent polls have showed a rising proportion of people worried about the huge influx of migrants and refugees.

New figures from Eurostat, the European Union statistical agency, show just how the issue has rocketed into the public consciousness.

Field work conducted between September 3 and 23 interviewed 62,511 people, asking them — among other things — what the two most important issues facing their region are.

The proportion answering “immigration” is displayed on the map below, and it’s astonishing.

In two parts of Germany, the figure climbs above 50% — 60% in Bayern (Bavaria) and 58% in Baden-Württemberg, the two areas that stand out in bright red — place the issue in their top two. In much of the rest of the country, it’s above 40%.

Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Belgium, southern Sweden, and northern Italy also stand out as being particularly preoccupied with immigration.

That’s not entirely surprising, given the simple number of refugees moving through and to the regions highlighted. Germany expects to take hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers this year. Though Sweden’s acceptance of refugees is less well-publicized, on a per-capita basis the country takes in more people applying for asylum.

Another map shows an even more obvious effect: It measures how much more concerned people in Europe are about migration, in comparison to how concerned they were in 2012.

Once again, Germany stands out:

  1. Suit up, FIGHT, or your Countries, your cultures are all gone. You’ve been here before, don’t let Islam conquer you. You know what’s going on, don’t let political leaders convince you that it’s OK, it’s NOT ok. Get rid of political leaders in your way, and get them OUT OF your Countries.

  2. Sometimes the words on a specific tune / song need to be changed occasionally to fit in with the times. I think this is appropriate. Only the name has been changed to highlight the Guilty.


  3. I notice that in the UK the Midlands is not fearful, I wonder if you put a map over of Muslim population whether that area might not be fearful due to its very high Muslim population.


  4. G-d help us all with kids like Merkel leading us to the brink of disaster! Nibiru do your worst – maybe it will shake the sheep from stupidity!. We can all start again. Shove the Ishmaeli’s/Mohammedans/Allah where they belong, in the abyss!
