Theresa May is right: Britain does not need more immigrants

Oh dear, it’s the nasty party all over again.

Her comments about immigration were described as marking a “new low in the politics of migration” by the Guardian, and by others as “tawdry”, “contemptible” and as “fanning the flames of prejudice”, and even the Institute of Directors chimed in calling her words “irresponsible”. And then there’s the Telegraph’s own sneering metro-liberal, James Kirkup.

“I am convinced that Mrs.Merkel’s politics are against national interests. I’m very disturbed about that. It’s almost treason. She has forgotten the oath she gave when she was sworn in” Read more

German anti-Islam group vents fury at Merkel over refugee welcome

Dresden (Germany) (AFP) – Thousands of German anti-Islam protesters on Monday vented their fury at Chancellor Angela Merkel over her welcoming of refugees, accusing her of “high treason” and “crimes against the German people

With Europe’s top economy expecting to take in up to a million people fleeing war and poverty this year, anger has flared among anti-foreigner groups and members of the anti-Islam PEGIDA movement (“Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident”). Read more

How To Know The Difference Between Multiculturalism And Assimilation

Jeb Bush recently observed that America is “creeping toward multiculturalism” and called it “the wrong approach.” This unleashed the usual synthetic furies of the organized Left, ever ready to crush dissent on things that matter. This will not be the last time you will hear about this issue in the year to come.

The debate between assimilation and multiculturalism could very well be not just the sleeper issue of the 2016 campaign, but the current great question of the West. Our fights over immigration may be a cover for a more protracted deliberation over national identity—not just here, but in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and so on.

Muslims claiming cash for numerous wives in Canada

Hundreds of GTA Muslim men in polygamous marriages — some with a harem of wives — are receiving welfare and social benefits for each of their spouses, thanks to the city and province, Muslim leaders say.

Mumtaz Ali, president of the Canadian Society of Muslims, said wives in polygamous marriages are recognized as spouses under the Ontario Family Law Act, providing they were legally married under Muslim laws abroad.

“Polygamy is a regular part of life for many Muslims,” Ali said yesterday. “Ontario recognizes religious marriages for Muslims and others.”

He estimates “several hundred” GTA husbands in polygamous marriages are receiving benefits. Under Islamic law, a Muslim man is permitted to have up to four spouses. Read more

Hamburg has become the first German city to pass a law allowing the seizure of empty commercial properties in order to house migrants.

The influx of migrants has put pressure on the authorities of the northern city to find accommodation. Some migrants are sleeping rough outdoors.

Hamburg’s law takes effect next week.

In a separate development, prosecutors filed charges of inciting racial hatred against a co-founder of the anti-Islamic Pegida movement.

André Drouin, City Councillor Behind Divisive 2007 Debate, Happy Niqab Is Election Issue

HÉROUXVILLE – André Drouin is “more than satisfied” that Conservative leader Stephen Harper has made the niqab face covering, worn by a handful of Muslim women, an election issue.

For Drouin, Harper’s defence of “Canadian values,” is in tune with his own Hérouxville code of conduct, adopted in 2007, when he sat on the village council.

The retired engineer’s code sparked a divisive debate in Quebec over “reasonable accommodation” of religious differences.

‘Since 2007, I have never given up,” Drouin said in an interview in his lakeside home.
Drouin has spent the intervening years developing a worldwide network to communicate and exchange views about immigration, religious practices he regards as incompatible with western values, and multiculturalism.

Every day he sends emails in French and English to about 100,000 correspondents. They, in turn, resend his missives across their own networks, spanning the globe.

“Canada, because of multiculturalism, has lost its bearings,” he said, adding immigrants he knows agree with him. Read more
