In a powerful speech, Lebanese-born filmmaker Imad Karim warned schoolchildren about impending Islamisation, which he fears threatens Germany, and urges them to save the country he loves by stopping mass migration.
The writer and director told pupils at an event at the school in Konigstein that immigration to Germany decades ago was very different from the wave of more than a million people the country saw arriving last year.
His speech served as a blistering judgement on mass migration and multiculturalism and warned that Angela Merkel’s policies are turning Germany into the Middle East.
Mr. Karim told the audience how, when he arrived in Germany almost 40 years ago, life was “good, colourful and peaceful”. Arab families and German, he said, would go to barbecues together and put pieces of meat on the grill — beef and lamb on one side, and pork and sausages on the other.
The immigrant, who had come to Germany as a 19-year-old student, spoke of Neukolln, where he had lived. He fondly recalled in the Berlin district “the restaurant with the best pork schnitzel, the Italian with the spicy pizzas and the hot wife, the shy Turk with the tasty kebab and the big-headed Lebanese with his self-proclaimed best falafel in the Western hemisphere.”
Sadly though, he told the auditorium’s crowd, Neukolln is now unrecognisable as the place he had such fond memories of, instead looking like Kabul in Afghanistan.
Illustrating the magnitude of change in the neighbourhood since the 1970s and 80s, Mr. Karim lamented how the leftist Arab friends he had then have all become “pious, devout Muslims”, who have imported their young cousins with whom they’ve had babies and are “firmly convinced” that Germany will very soon become an Islamic country.
The filmmaker continued, saying that “people who don’t want to convert to Islam will have to pay the tax and resign themselves to being second-class humans”.
Warning that in the new, Islamised Germany idolaters would be put to death, Mr. Karim put forward that Muslims would say: “Please don’t get us wrong — we don’t have anything against these people, but we must follow God’s orders.”
The Lebanese immigrant said he had recently gone for a Turkish dinner with his wife in a square in Germany. Requesting a beer from the waitress, he was told that now none of the eight restaurants on the town’s square served alcohol. The young Muslim woman told him that “whoever drinks alcohol is bad and without morals”.
Warning that “soon people will only be allowed to drink alcohol at home,” Mr. Karim warned the pupils: “then I knew I was about to lose my Germany”.
“Today”, he continued, “Germany seems to me all strange and I cry bloody tears, because I can’t protect it.
“But you, my children, you can still save Germany.
“Stop the triumph of barbarism. Tell Merkel, and the whole political elite, and the Greens, and the media, and the justice system and all, that you decide who comes to you and who does not.
“And don’t forget to give me back my own Germany,” Mr Karim concluded, to applause: “even when I am not around any more”.
