Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel - formerly named Rebbekah Dorothea Kasner - attended a meeting of networking women in Dresden on Monday, where she spoke on equality for all in all areas.
On arrival at the meeting, she was met by about 50 members from Pegida - Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West - who chanted “go away” and “Merkel must go away”. One of the present did so-called “Hitler greetings”, which were reported to police for investigation as the symbol is prohibited under the prevailing constitution.
The demonstration had been organized by Pegidas leader Lutz Bachmann . In 2016, he was banned from organizing demonstrations, while IS supporters were given time by state television to propagate their policies.
Dresden’s police also announce that one of the demonstrators is suspected of having denied the lie of the Jews’ most recent alleged annihilation in counter-demonstration talks. The man was arrested by police.
Her policy, among other things, has been to demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as an ethnically homogeneous Jewish state, while demanding from the Germans to recognize Germany as a completely multicultural and multiethnic state.
On her visit to Jerusalem in October 2018, Merkel said that Germany must take a stricter approach to anti-Semitism. According to Holger Strohm , Merkel meant to the Knesset that Germany had to be punished, which, in addition to various forms of economic transfers to Israel, was done through the “migration pact” which Norway and Sweden have also signed in the UN.
In August, Merkel will be awarded an honorary doctorate in Leipzig.
