Time’s Person of the Year for 2015 is none other than the Grand Mutti, Angela Merkel, the longest serving Prime Minister of reunited Germany.
According to Time, Merkel’s greatest accomplishment in 2015 was her “audacious” attempt to “redeem Europe,” as she “threw open Germany’s doors to a pressing throng of refugees and migrants.”
Germany certainly has been at the center of the ongoing “refugee crisis”—and at the center of how we understand it. Namely, throwing open the gates to Arab and African refugees was the ultimate expression of “German guilt,” or, if you want, “German redemption.” (And the Christian terminology is important here.)
That said, “German Guilt” certainly didn’t cause the mass migration. And there’s reason to believe that we’re not just witnessing national suicide, but murder.
The Oriental Review has produced a fascinating study on “Twitter luring”:
Content-analysis of a great number of tweets that triggered the ongoing wave of migration from Turkey to Germany since August this year suggests that these human streams were inspired and channeled from outside of the continental Europe.
According to Vladimir Shalak from the Russian Academy of Science who developed the Internet Content-Analysis System for Twitter (Scai4Twi), his study of over 19000 refugees-related original tweets (retweets discounted) demonstrates that the vast majority of them mention Germany and Austria as the most refugee-welcoming countries in Europe:
Importantly, 93% of all tweets dedicated to Germany contained positive references to German hospitality and its refugee policy:
+ Germany Yes! Leftists spray a graffiti on a train sayin “Welcome, refugees” in Arabic
+ Lovely people – video of Germans welcoming Syrian refugees to their community
+ Respect! Football fans saying “Welcome Refugees” across stadiums in Germany.
+ This Arabic Graffiti train is running in Dresden welcoming refugees: (ahlan wa sahlan – a warm welcome).
+ ‘We love Germany!,’ cry relieved refugees at Munich railway station
+ Thousands welcome refugees to Germany – Sky News Australia
+ Wherever this German town is that welcomed a coach of Syrian refugees with welcome signs and flowers -thank you.
Analysis of 5704 original tweets containing #RefugeesWelcome” hashtag and a country name lead to even larger gap between Germany and the rest of Europe:
The next step is to study the source twitter accounts where the hashtag #RefugeesWelcome + Germany originate. Next diagram shows the countries of origin of the relevant twitter accounts (where they could be idenfitied):
As you see, only 6,4% of all tweets with “#RefugeesWelcome” + Germany came from Germany itself. Almost half of them were originated from UK, USA and Australia! Looks like your remote planetmates are blushlessly inviting guests to visit your home without inquiring your opinion beforehand!

Evidently, the logic behind this campaign is to deteriorate social situation in Germany and undermine its economic development. Another target is the social structure of German society. 1 million of refugees coming annually there and supplementing existing 31% of local families having underage kids and at least one migrant parent, would definitely disbalance the voting structure and secure a loyal leadership in Germany for the decades to come.
