Gambled and lost - Germany and the immigrants

Find it interesting that the Associated Press would actually publish this:

TURNING POINT: GERMANY HOPED TO CLOSE BORDER IN 2015, DIDN'T
Germany planned to close its border with Austria and turn back asylum-seekers in September 2015, a move that could have dramatically changed the course of the European refugee crisis that was at its peak at the time, according to a German newspaper.

The Welt am Sonntag reported Sunday that Chancellor Angela Merkel and her ministers agreed Sept. 12 to send thousands of police to the border, where they were to turn back migrants who didn't have documents entitling them to enter Germany - "including in case of asylum request."

The plan was halted hours before it was due to take effect on Sept. 13 after officials raised concerns about the border closure during an emergency meeting at Germany's Interior Ministry, the paper reported.

Citing interviews with several unnamed high-ranking officials involved, Welt am Sonntag reported that ministers didn't want to take responsibility for a decision that might have been illegal under German and European law. The possibility of unpopular images of police officers blocking women and children was reportedly also a concern, resulting in a change to the police order that effectively allowed all asylum-seekers to enter the country.

Germany did not close her borders because "the optics" (ie: Virtue Signaling) would not fit the narrative of the European Union's globalist policies as set by the disconnected and unelected elites in Brussels. Now they are paying the price.

This is a very sad state of affairs as the people in the arab nations who are truly oppressed are the Christians. The young muslim men want to come to Europe as they can live off welfare as they regroup and continue their 9th century jihad. They dream of a new caliphate but have no knowledge of history.
