One who breaks an unjust law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.

(Martin Luther King, Jr.)

….and soon enters Theodor-zu-Guttenberg as Merkel will pass the torch of a Germany growing more and more at unease with a Muslim population – see: They want strict immigration controls, enforced “integration” for foreigners,
and “criminal asylum seekers” to be sent packing. …

(The question here on Main Street USA, when will the US tighten up its immigration laws and thwart easy border crossings….reply, not during this present administration.

‘They Have Hatred in Their Hearts’: Angela Merkel Delivers Stinging Attack
Independent | Dec. 31, 2014

The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, used her new
year’s address to deliver her most outspoken attack to date on
Germany’s growing anti-Islamic protest movement.

She accused its leaders of “prejudice, coldness and hatred,”
charging that they hijacked and abused political slogans that
helped to topple the Berlin Wall 25 years ago.

The recently formed, so-called Patriotic Europeans Against
the Islamization of the Occident—or pegida—have been holding
regular demonstrations since October 2014. One such protest
at the end of December drew more than 17,000 people, while
another is currently planned in the eastern city of Dresden for

“I say to all those who go to such demonstrations: Do not follow
those who have called the rallies because all too often they have
prejudice, coldness, even hatred in their hearts,” Ms. Merkel said
in a televised new year’s appeal.

Her speech was broadcast nationwide this evening. The sudden
popularity of pegida has shocked Germany’s main parties
and provoked heated political debate as the country struggles
to cope with a record 2014 influx of more than 200,000 asylum Trumpet Weekly |

The influx is set to continue well into the new year. …
Ms. Merkel, who grew up in East Germany, took issue with
the fact that many of the predominantly right-wing protesters
who have attended pegida demonstrations chant the slogan
“Wir sind das Volk” (“We are the people”), coined by East German
anti-Communist demonstrators in 1989 in the run-up to
the fall of the Berlin Wall. She accused pegida of hijacking the
slogan for its own xenophobic ends. She told viewers: “What
they really mean is: you are not one of us because of your skin
color or your religion.

Worldwide there are more refugees than we have seen since
the Second World War. Many literally escaped death. It goes without
saying that we help them and take in people who seek refuge
with us.” …

Its supporters fear that Germany is being overrun by Muslim
immigrants who are destroying traditional Teutonic values. They
want strict immigration controls, enforced “integration” for foreigners,
and “criminal asylum seekers” to be sent packing. …
