This from a retired RAF officer i served with in the sixties now working and living in Germany.
Europe is now in total chaos and I think that you should know about it.
I have waited a week or so to see how things will develop and to glean more information before presenting the facts.
As you may know from the media, the flood of refugees cum economic immigrants into Europe has reached ridiculous proportions and to the extent that Hungary and other Balkan states have closed their borders and Turkey is considering doing the same.
Angela Merkel in an ill advised speech to the Bunderstag, welcomed all refugees to Germany and the floodgates opened and, in my view, this was all pre-planned beginning with the Pope’s appeal last year for Islam to move closer to Christianity. This was then followed up via the Italian Goverment instructing the Italian Navy to rescue all boat refugees and bring them to Italy.
As a result, it seems that some 8000 people per day are now entering Europe via various routes. Most of these are young males between 17 and 25. The result is chaos as you can imagine.
Here in Saarland we have been overwhelmed with refugees mainly young males but some families. In Lebach, some 10 kilometres from here, a camp for 200 was set up and a further 100 added this last week. The politicians, local government and religious leaders have fallen over themselves to bring them in and cater for them.
And so what is the result? In Ventimiglia near Monte Carlo, the refugees banded together ( organised by smart phone) and over ran the market and stole or destroyed everything and ransacked the town.
Here in Lebach, a group entered a supermarket and took what they wanted and destroyed the rest. When the Manageress confronted them, they called up their friends and smashed the place to bits. The police arrived but were overwhelmed. The supermarket is now closed.
Yesterday, my friends rang from Weissenfels near Leipzig since two supermarkets and a Kaufland store in Halle suffered the same way. More news is coming in from all over Germany of the same situations.
The media report none of this.
Many people have demonstrated against being over run by immigrants. In Weissenfels, families were thrown out of an eight flat appartment block and 70 refugees moved in. Small towns of some 2000 to 3000 people are over run by some 5000 to 6000 refugees.
For the Syrian and Afghan refugees, I have every sympathy and they need help. They should get it. But for the rest, in my view, the state authorities must be firm and send them back. Perhaps it is too late.
Anyway, I thought that you should know that the situation here is pretty grim and I fail to see how it can be resolved. I can only forsee a police state.
Monday night and on Sunday there were four arson attacks in Germany with apparently anti-Muslim motives.
In the district of Rostock and in Baden-Württemberg Wertheim houses were set on fire, soon should move refugees into. In Saxony Freital there was an attack on a refugee housing and cars in Brandenburg an Flüchtlingsinitiative were lighted. But one was injured.
