Germany: The Rise Of Islam

Authored by Giulio Meotti via The Gatestone Institute,

  • Turkey controls 900 mosques in Germany and feels free to say that a "liberal mosque" in Germany is "incompatible" with Islam.
  • Can you imagine Germany offering Iraq, Syria and Egypt to build "200 new churches" to reconstruct the derelict and dispossessed Christian communities there? No, because in the Middle East, Christians have been eradicated in a forced de-Christianization.
  • Christians in Germany will become a minority in the next 20 years, according to Die Welt.
  • We risk losing not only our churches, but more importantly, our cultural strength and even confidence in the values of our own civilization.

Jan Fleischhauer, a journalist of the weekly magazine Der Spiegel, coined an expression to define the free fall of German Christianity: Selbstsäkularisierung ("self-secularization"). Is the Church being liquidated?

The German Bishops' Conference just released the data on the decline of Catholicism in Germany for 2016. In one year, the German Catholic Church lost 162,093 faithful and closed 537 parishes. From 1996 to today, one quarter of the Catholic communities have been closed. "The faith has evaporated," said Cardinal Friedrich Wetter, the Archbishop of Munich and Freising from 1982 to 2007.

Christians in Germany will become a minority in the next 20 years, according to Die Welt. Around 60% of the country is currently Christian, with 24 million Catholics and 23 million Protestants. But that number is falling by 500,000 a year through deaths alone. "Those statistics are embodied by what visitors observe in German cities on Sunday: largely empty churches", the Catholic theologian George Weigel wrote.

German Protestantism is facing the same crisis. Die Zeit revealed that in 2016, 340,000 Protestants passed away, and there were just 180,000 baptisms. Some 190,000 people left the church and just 25,000 people chose to join it.

In his most famous lecture, Pope Benedict XVI famously said that the West, including those who do not accept transcendence, should act "etsi Deus daretur", as if God does exist. The old-fashioned Christian society will never come back, but it is critical for even a secular West to stay based on -- and profoundly inspired by -- its Judeo-Christian values.

The next stage seems to be a German cultural and religious landscape dominated by atheists and two minority religions: Islam and Christianity. If the secularists do not take Western Christian heritage -- or at least the Judeo-Christian values from which it sprang -- more seriously and start defending it, both atheists and Christians will soon be dominated by the rising political and supremacist religion, Islam. A prominent Muslim fundamentalist organization in Germany, banned by the federal government, calls itself "The True Religion" ("Die Wahre Religion"). They apparently think they are overtaking Judeo-Christian values.

There are dramatic instances of Christian decay in Germany. In the diocese of Trier, for example, site of the oldest Catholic community and the birthplace of Karl Marx, the number of parishes will drop from 903 to 35 by 2020, according to bishop Stephan Ackermann -- a decrease of more than 90%. In the diocese of Essen, more than 200 parishes have been closed; their number has fallen from 259 to 43.

A demographic decline is also involved in this religious crisis. "Christianity is literally dying in Europe," said Conrad Hackett, head of the researchers who drafted a Pew Forum report a few months ago. In Europe, between 2010 and 2015, Christian deaths outnumbered births by nearly 6 million. In Germany alone, there were about 1.4 million more Christian deaths.

This decline also apparent from the recruitment crisis for the priesthood. The official website of the German Catholic Church, noted in May that the dioceses of Osnabrück and Mainz did not receive any new priests this year. The archdiocese of Munich last year drew only one candidate. Throughout the Archdiocese of Munich today, there are only 37 seminarians in the various training stages, for about 1.7 million Catholics. In comparison, the American diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, currently has 49 seminarians for about 96,000 Catholics. In the U.S., Christianity is strong; in Germany it is literally dying.

A German architect, Joaquim Reinig, told Die Tageszeitung that to integrate Muslim immigrants better, churches should be demolished and replaced with "highly visible mosques". It might sound a bit crazy, but it contains a dramatic truth. In his book The Last Days of Europe, the historian Walter Laqueur wrote that "Germany had some 700 little mosques and prayer rooms in the 1980s, but there are more than 2,500 at the present time". If, in Germany, Christianity is evaporating, Islam is proliferating.

The Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB) just opened a new mega-mosque for worship in the German city of Cologne. The new German mega-mosque has a 1,200-person capacity and the tallest minaret of Europe. According to Deutsche Welle, "Christian leaders bristled at the idea of Cologne's famed Dom cathedral sharing the skyline with minarets". When the mosque was planned in 2007, a citizens' initiative was launched to say that "we want the cathedral here, not minarets". The Muslim authorities then announced the plan to "double" the number of mosques.

The Turkish authorities not only wanted to build a mega-mosque in the city hosting the largest cathedral of Germany, but these also had the sense of irony to commission architect Paul Böhm to design the mosque. Böhm's father and grandfather were in fact the two most radical and admired church architects of their generations. In the "new Germany", nobody had asked Böhm to design a new cathedral.

Since he took power in Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan has built 17,000 Islamic prayer sites there. The Turkish president is committed to the construction of mosques in European capitals as well. Turkey controls 900 mosques in Germany and feels free to say that a "liberal mosque" in Germany is "incompatible" with Islam, according to the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. That is why the 57 percent of Germans fear the rise of Islam in their country.

When Chancellor Angela Merkel opened her country to mass migration in 2014, she apparently did not see any cultural problem in accepting more than another million Muslims.

In the words of Erdogan, however, "Our minarets are our bayonets, our domes are our helmets, our mosques are our barracks". Islamic regimes are, in fact, offering to fill the empty spaces in Germany's religious landscape. Saudi Arabia proposed building 200 new mosques in Germany, "one for every 100 refugees".

Can you imagine Germany offering Iraq, Syria and Egypt to build "200 new churches" to reconstruct the derelict and dispossessed Christian communities there? No, because in the Middle East, Christians have been eradicated in a forced de-Christianization. In Europe, Christians are also becoming extinct by a process of "self-secularization". We risk losing not only our churches, but more importantly, our cultural strength and even confidence in the values of our own civilization.

“We (Jews) intend to turn Europe into a mixed race of Asians and Negros ruled over by the Jews”. Jewish EU Founding Father Richard Coudenhove-Kalerg.Go over to youtube and search on 'Sarkozy White Genocide' and listens to what that Jew had to say. It's a must watch. These people are pure evil and always have been.

Islam is a totalitarian system. The religious aspect is only one part of its basic tenets.

Islam means "submit" and its adherents are taught that ANY methods to "convert" those outside of the house of islam are authorized by allah via mohammed's words. This includes deception of all sorts, terrorism, rape and slaughter.

When weak they will appear submissive, when powerful they will mercilessly subdue the unbelievers.

The real reason the religion is being imported into the west on such a vast scale. They have zero respect for individual rights; it is scarcely a concept for them.
Europeans and Americans devilishly created all these systems and institutions in support of our freedoms and even billions spent in corporate lobbying hasn't been enough to dismantle them.

To : StackShinyStuff : Christianity offers a white robe and you can play the harp. Have you ever played the harp? It's the most horribly difficult musical instrument ever devised by the mind of man. And you get to praise god the whole time. Do you praise god all the time now? Why not? Other things you'd rather do? Of course. No sex in heaven? Too bad. And if you had wings big enough to fly around with, your chest muscles would be so big you'd fall over. The end of the Christian religion is the best thing that can happen to Europe. Christianity is a concept that was developed by ancient Hebrews. Jesus never preached to gentiles. Read the book of Acts. It proves this. Jesus came to save the lost sheep of Israel. That's what he said. The idea that he approved of his ideas being taught to gentiles is a lie. Do a little research on this and you'll find out. https://www.amazon.com/Gullibility-Superstition-Unconscionable-Exploitation-Extraordinary/dp/0692796754/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1505310843&sr=1-1&keywords=Robert+Hampton+Burt

of course not, WW2 and the aftermat was the greatest genetig purge of a nation the world has ever seen. All those who had the will and strengt to fight communism and opression were killed off eighter in war, prisoner camps ("other losses", I recoamand it strongly) and the ones who remained were brainwashed in denazification. The greatest feat of social engineering since the roman conquest of gaul. Who the hell would you like to be left defending a state which rejekts and hates you?

its the abrahamic coin of death:
-one side has christianity on it
-the other side has islam on it
-and the coin is made of and owned by judaism

these death cults are spawned from the same vile cesspool of evil and getting rid of all three should be the first thing white people do, if they ever want to live in peace.

follow your ancestors native cultures, traditions and mythology, be it nordic, celtic, slavic, greek, roman, etc.
dont trade all that rich and wonderful heritage for the bland and bleak terror of abrahamic death cults.

because no matter what, if one of the death cults prevails, the parasites will have the control, always scheming and conspiring to destroy the white people and steal their wealth.

when white people finally say enough and go to war, the only war that matters, war against psychopaths and sociopaths in power, continents will be burnt to crisp, and the long winter comes.

if you dont let them live in peace, and crave war, real war is what you get. and much more
and this time, psychopathic parasites will be dealt with for good

They think that if they break us all down they can easily rule us all.All they will succeed in doing is creating the greatest chaos ever seen.But like all Despots and Tyrants they have total belief in their actions and misplaced thoughts of superiority, they are a dangerous menace.

yes.

the €urocrats and the security industrial complex LOOOOVE islam. they are getting TRILLIONS to develop highly sophisticated surveillance systems to track every penny, every movement, every post we all make.

that viritually everyone connected to terror in europe were well known to the "authorities" in every case is evidence enough for me to conclude that they are either incompetent or conspiratorially involved.

i refuse to believe in coincidence. if these psychopaths are forcing us to pay them trillions, justifying it by protecting us, inviting islamists into europe and ignoring the desires of their voters THEY ARE THE ENEMY:

Well, if you like oppressing Women, Homosexuals, and anyone who doesn't believe in Allah this is great news.I will miss the Classical music, the hot Women in Lederhosen, and the music and dancing.What do I tell my children, move to the hills of W.V. with your guns and Bible?

You should be lucky enough to live in W.V. Listen, fella. I resided in California Bay Area 1970-1979. Moved to Portland, OR 1979 -2006. This state has its problems, but moving here was the smartest thing I have ever done. Yes, I own a gun and I carry a Bible. Virtually no illegal aliens or Muslims. As I have stated many times before, even a W.V. hillbilly has the sense to just say no...HELL NO!!!

Gods change, it's happened throughout history, who worships Jupiter king of the Gods, or Sutekh these days?The Jews tried to stop Christianity, and Christians try to stop Islam, but it won't work. The only thing that will stop Islam, is a newer better God.

is a newer better God.

Or an older society of Gods.Gods who guided us reliably for 40 000 years.Gods who taught us Honour and Virtue.Gods who demanded that we Stand upright as Men and Women before them, our equals.Gods that offer guidance, not commandments.Gods that value True diversity of being in the world, and not demanding that we put through a blender so that we know not who our ancestors are.Gods that demanded excellence, Arete, from us so that we may enter into their halls covered in Glory, that our ancestors may greet us with Pride.

"Liberal" is a euphemism for "anarchist" so it is not surprising that wherever law and order breaks down, strongmen move in which are - brace yourself - illiberal!Liberalism must be the first ideology that has its own demise built-in from the getgo!

Reading a book called Caliphate Set in the early 22nd century. Anyhow Europe is lost to Islam and they're now all slaves. It's brilliant that the sandniggers are using our system to bring us down. People keep talking of civil war between the left and right. It looks to me as crusades 2.0 will be the unifying factor that pushes us forward in the mid 21st century. But you've got hit bottom first....

The answer is simple -- Kristalnacht. A bloodless one.

Like the one in Schindler's List but more gentle.

It's easy. Run up the stairs, play a few quick lines of Bach on the piano on the second floor, then go to the third floor and politely knock on the door.

"Guten tag [I can't believe Google just corrected my spelling to "Gluten tag"], meinen Damen und Herren. I will kindly manage the Kristalnacht for you this Abend. We will gently ship you to Mecca. Das Boot is waiting. Yes, please to swallow some more diamonds, no hurry at all. Would you like some more Pita bread? Entschuldigen Sie but I must take a dump. May I kindly borrow a few pages of your holy book?"

Gentle, humane, effective and easy peasy.

But the German and Swedish suicide bunnies won't do it.

Rest in peace. I'm ashamed to be on the same planet with you.

This article is just more fearmongering from the evil neocon fucks whose objective, as always, is war, war and more war. From wiki: The Gatestone Institute (formerly Stonegate Institute and Hudson New York) is a right-wing think tank that publishes articles, particularly those involving Muslims or the Middle East.

I'm not "labeling" you. I am merely making a point that quoting "wiki" is a bit of a fucking joke to anyone who has ever heard about pornographer and zionazi gate keeper Jimbo Wales. Get it...pot calling kettle black?  Quoting a zionazi propagandist pornographer for anything other than the price of a Tel Aviv slash Chatsworth whore is a bit of a stretch; no pun intended.
