About 1,000 right-wing extremists have rallied outside Berlin’s main train station, protesting against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s welcoming stance to refugees.

Demonstrators held signs with slogans like ‘No Islam on German Soil’ and ‘Merkel Must Go,’ while waving German flags at the rally on Saturday afternoon in the capital.

About 1.1 million migrants crossed into Germany last year from the Middle East and North Africa raising concerns nationwide about how the country would cope with the influx.

Still, the rally drew only about a fifth of the numbers organisers had expected and several counter-protests were being held around Berlin in support of Merkel.

Even as demonstrators chanted their ‘we are the people’ mantra common to all recent far-right rallies, onlookers outside the police cordon shouted back ‘no you’re not.’

There weren’t any immediate reports of clashes between the two sides.

This week Merkel said it was important that people understood her immigration policies which have caused her personal ratings to plummet.

She said: ‘We have to ensure that Europe is a project that people understand,’ adding that a key message that has to hit home is that ‘it’s better with Europe than without Europe’.

German politicians from across the spectrum criticised the anti-immigration party on Monday after it declared Islam incompatible with the constitution.

THE RISE OF THE FAR-RIGHT PARTY AfD AS POLL SHOWS ITS POPULARITY

Public backing for a German far-right party is at its most popular in its history – just days after it said Islam was incompatible with the country’s constitution.

Opinion polls have given Alternative for Germany (AfD) support of 15 per cent – gaining significant ground on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s main coalition partner, the centre-left Social Democrats.

Formed only three years ago on a eurosceptic platform, AfD is now Germany’s third strongest party, according to a recent survey.

Public backing for Germany’s far-right party AfD is at its most popular in its history – just days after it said Islam was incompatible with the country’s constitution.

The statistics were revealed as Merkel urged European leaders to protect the EU’s external borders or risk a ‘return to nationalism’.

She said today that border defence represents a ‘challenge for the future of Europe’ from ‘the Mediterranean to the North Pole’.

Merkel said earlier this week that the rise of the far-right in Germany was a phenomenon that ‘we have to deal with’.

‘We see that there are political forces with very negative rhetoric on Europe,’ she said, referring to AfD.

The AfD backed a manifesto pledge at a congress on Sunday to ban on minarets and the burqa, the full face and body-covering gown worn by some Muslim women.

It has no lawmakers in the federal parliament in Berlin but has members in half of Germany’s 16 regional state assemblies.

Merkel has said freedom of religion for all is guaranteed by Germany’s constitution and that Islam is a part of Germany.

Germany is home to nearly 4million Muslims, about 5 per cent of the total population. Community leaders have called on politicians to ensure that no religious community be disadvantaged and that Islam not be defined as a ‘foe’.

  1. Islam is not a religion. It is a savage murder and enslavement cult cynically claiming the protections accorded a religion. It is a false, fraudulent, and unclean ideology using God as a vicious weapon, and I think it is fair to say God is not amused. I am an American, and soon we will be rid of our illegal Islamo-Marxist First Enemy Agent and our next president, I trust, will right our ship of State and perhaps help you right yours. Try to be safe, and remember, those who claim the right to rape and steal and murder in the name of a false God whose real name is Satan have no right to exist. This is why all peaceful, law-abiding human beings have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their communities, and their nations against savages regardless of government pretenses. The government that does not trust its people with arms has nefarious intent.

    So in what way is Europe a project?
    That would be the way in which Europe is fundamentally transformed from a region with distinct peoples cultures and languages, to a region with no distinct peoples cultures or languages. A region in which all people simply identify as European.

    In short, a United States of Europe, where the people all bow only to Brussels.

    “The statistics were revealed as Merkel urged European leaders to protect the EU’s external borders or risk a ‘return to nationalism’.”
    She has realized that much more incoming today, may make people realize what is happening and want to stop it. You must raise the temperature on the frog slowly as you boil it.

  4. Are the Germans awaken by the infestation of refugees? The migration is planned by Muslims to dominate the world. Evil is at hand and Germans if not awake, will soon join their doom. Where and when did people find a peaceful place with dignity to live in the Muslim world? They either destroy themselves or persecute non Muslims.

  5. Mailonline, the Luegepresse, Merkel, and the rest of establishment forces are controlling the debate with common and transparent tactics.

    “About 1,000 right-wing extremists have rallied outside Berlin’s main train station, protesting against Chancellor Angela Merkel’s welcoming stance to refugees. “ – Derogatorily labeling and understating, the opposition.

    She said: ‘We have to ensure that Europe is a project that people understand,’ adding that a key message that has to hit home is that ‘it’s better with Europe than without Europe’. – Conflating the issue of Europe with the separate issue of Islamization.

    The statistics were revealed as Merkel urged European leaders to protect the EU’s external borders or risk a ‘return to nationalism’. She said today that border defence represents a ‘challenge for the future of Europe’ from ‘the Mediterranean to the North Pole’ – Again conflating the existence of the EU with Merkel’s own personal decision which precipitated the Islamic migration.

    Merkel said earlier this week that the rise of the far-right in Germany was a phenomenon that ‘we have to deal with’.
    and
    Merkel has said freedom of religion for all is guaranteed by Germany’s constitution and that –>Islam is a part of Germany<–. – She's making an assertion and identifying it as an established principle upon which the entire debate is premised. In other words, continuous Islamic migration to Europe is a fait accompli.

    The core issue is the Islamization of Europe. The absolute power Merkel and the rest of the EU commissars attempt to wield to enforce their will is secondary, common to other issues involving EU governance, but highlighted and magnified by the omnipresent and growing threat to European societies that the recent mass migration – precipitated by Merkel – embodies.

    But, Merkel and the rest of the oligarchs want to depict opposition as a recent phenomenon and unreasonable disruption of that which, while perhaps larger in scale, is in principle business as usual.
