The divisive side effects of mass migration are being felt across the continent, from violence in Scandinavia to community tension in central Europe, but now some migrants are beginning to feel the heat themselves.
As many native Europeans continue to voice opposition to doctrinal mass immigration, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reports the comments of one migrant interviewed in Germany who admitted sensationally they had rescinded their application for asylum.
Speaking in broken English to the news agency, the migrant who refused to give their full name presented a letter written in both German and Arabic, which he said had been submitted to the German government to formally terminate his application, and said “I want to return to Syria — very afraid here”.
Speaking from his refuge centre in Freital, the controversial hotel conversion which was created with zero notice and from which locals have been banned from approaching, ‘Taher’ told AFP “I come from Syria because I was afraid — but here big afraid”.
Resentful of the government decision to turn their town centre into a refugee centre by buying up and re-purposing the former Hotel Leonardo without giving notice or inviting them to participate in a consultation process, Freital locals proceeded to protest outside the centre after work every night. As Breitbart London reported earlier this month, German police have cracked down hard on the protests and even declared the town to be under a state of emergency, giving them wide-ranging powers to prevent people from being out on the streets.
Germany isn’t the only European country where recent migrants are beginning to question whether coming to foreign lands was really such a good idea. Breitbart London reported this week on the the deteriorating situation in Malmö, Sweden, where ethnic gang violence has blighted the city with regular knife, gun, arson, and grenade attacks. Malmö police admit they are totally overwhelmed, with one third of all officers now on leave from the high-stress job, with police stations, court buildings, and social security favourite targets for the immigrant gangs.
One man, 28-year-old ‘Ahmed’ narrowly avoided being killed this week when a grenade exploded just yards away from him. He said the explosion took him by surprise, as he was the only person in the street at the time and he had seen no cars.
Speaking to local paper Afton Bladet ‘Ahmed’ said: “The explosion was powerful and made it howl in your ears. First, I looked at myself to see if there were any injuries. There was nothing but I had ear pain in a couple of minutes”. He said living in Malmö, which had suffered four grenade attacks in five days and thirty in total since January, was like being back from his home country Syria.
The city is basically a law unto itself. The black market thrives, prices are rock-bottom compared to the rest of Sweden as nobody pays their taxes, clubs and social spots never close and obey no licensing laws. A recent Afton Bladet editorial describes it as a “den of thieves” where there’s not “a snowball’s chance in hell” that the money changing hands for even mundane things like food isn’t black market and helps sustain the city’s murderous, tribal gangs.
As European cities become as the cities of their new inhabitants homelands are, perhaps it is worth asking: has multiculturalism succeeded in places like Germany and Sweden, where it sets men against men?
