In 2012 Peter Sutherland, the non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and the UN’s special representative for migration, urged the EU to “do its best to undermine” the “homogeneity” of its member states and create “multicultural states” in Europe.
On Saturday the German daily Die Welt reported this process is well underway. It cited a telephone conference between the interior ministers of German states that revealed “302,415 asylum seekers have already been registered” this year in the country.
The figure is higher than the one reported by the Federal Office for Migrants and Refugees (BAMF) which recorded 258,000 current requests for asylum.
The Der Tagesspiegel newspaper, however, said the unofficial “internal numbers” at the BAMF suggest as many as 600,000 asylum applicants in 2015.
In 2009 official figures put the Muslim population in Germany at around 4 million, or roughly five percent of the population, representing the largest population of Muslims in Europe.
In November Felix Strüning of the Stresemann Foundation said Germany’s SVR (Foreign Intelligence Service) has downplayed the actual numbers on the influx of Muslim immigrants in the country in order to stifle criticism of the multicultural agenda mentioned by Peter Sutherland.
Strüning writes for Citizen Times that “the number of refugees entering Germany has risen exponentially. And this implies a massive increase in the percentage of the population of Muslim persuasion,” a fact the SVR has “blithely swept under the rug.”
Although the actual number is unknown, native Germans have expressed concern about the influx.
“The growing number of Muslims in the country (and specifically the Turks) makes the locals… increasingly more hostile towards them. A group of experts with the Council of Europe headed by former Foreign Minister of Germany Joschka Fischer recently conducted a study and found that the number of people who are afraid of Muslims is growing,” writes Vadim Trukhachev.
A separate study was conducted 18 months ago by experts of the sociological institute Dimap specifically in Germany. Thirty-six percent of Germans expressed serious concern over the expansion of Islam, and 39 percent – mild concern. The fears are largely exaggerated, but these figures eloquently show that the problem exists. Strictly speaking, its existence was acknowledged by Chancellor Angela Merkel herself.
“This [multicultural] approach has failed, utterly failed,” the German chancellor said in 2010.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán denounced the globalist multicultural agenda when he delivered his State of the Nation address in February.
“Europe is facing questions which can no longer be answered within the framework of liberal multiculturalism,” Orbán said. “Can we shelter people, many of whom are unwilling to accept European culture, or who come here with the intent of destroying European culture?”
