This is not a refugee crisis. This is a hijrah. Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component.
800,000 Muslim refugees in one year alone. This will transform Germany forever. No effort is being made, of course, to determine these refugees’ adherence to Sharia and desire to bring it to their new land. That would be “Islamophobic.”
Already jihadis have been found among the refugees. There will be many more such discoveries.
Why does Europe have to absorb all these refugees? Why not Saudi Arabia? Algeria? Etc. This is Europe’s death knell.
“More than 100,000 asylum seekers enter Germany in August,” Reuters, September 2, 2015
A record 104,460 asylum seekers arrived in Germany last month, a Bavarian official said on Wednesday, part of an unprecedented wave of refugees and migrants straining the resources of German towns and villages.Germany, with relatively liberal asylum laws and generous benefits, is the EU’s biggest recipient of people fleeing war in the Middle East and economic migrants from southeastern Europe.From January to August, around 413,535 people registered on Germany’s Easy system, said a spokesman for Bavaria’s Social Minister Emilia Mueller.The Easy system is used for the initial registration of migrants and refugees arriving in Germany. Applying for asylum is a separate procedure.Around one third of registrations in August were in Bavaria, the spokesman said.Europe is facing its biggest refugee crisis since World War Two and has yet to find a common response. Thousands of people from the Middle East, Asia and Africa have died making the perilous journeys by land and sea.Germany expects about 800,000 people to file for asylum in Germany this year, four times last year’s level.Towns have been overwhelmed with the new arrivals and want more money to house and care for them. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for a fair distribution of asylum seekers within the EU and has also warned against racism after almost daily attacks on shelters….
