After Trump’s visit, Germany’s Angela Merkel says Europe can no longer depend on the U.S.

  • After a series of faux pas by Trump in Brussels — including when he appeared to shove a fellow NATO leader — Merkel said at a campaign rally, “The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I’ve experienced that in the last few days.”
  • “We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands,” she said, adding, “We have to fight for our own destiny.”
  • President Trump has publicly insisted the trip was a “great success.”
  • The apparent vote of no confidence from one of the U.S.’ closest allies may be unlikely to deter the president, but it does reflect growing discord with Europe over a number of issues, including climate change, Russian territorial aggression, and trade. Read More (5/29/17 9:42 AM)

European Union court rules employers can ban Islamic headscarves in the workplace

  • A European Union court ruling on Tuesday is giving employers the green light to ban visible religious symbols in the workplace, including Islamic headscarves.
  • According to the Guardian, the ruling stipulates that in order to enforce such a policy, workplaces must have a blanket ban on religious symbols officially on the books — employers can’t simply tell an employee to remove their hijab, for example. Read more (3/14/17 7:21 AM)

Merkel says EU cannot completely rely on US and Britain any more
German chancellor tells election rally in Munich that Europe must take its fate into its own hands after ‘unsatisfactory’ G7 talks

German Chancellor Angela Merkel is tired of the UK and USA, deciding to encourage the EU to stand more on their own feet than rely on either the Americans or the British.

Something so few people seem to understand regarding the situation in Europe, is how they seem to think the inherent landscape of the place will not be irrecoverably changed by the current, uncontested ‘refugee’ migration. So often I hear ‘Oh well, we’ll disappear but our culture will survive’. Will it? Do you really think a culture heavily dominated by Islam wouldn’t gut the contents of the Louvre for being un-Islamic? Do you think Notre Dame wouldn’t be converted into a mosque? That its windows and sculptures, like that in every old church in Europe, wouldn’t be smashed as idolatry? That the pagan Parthenon wouldn’t be finished off, or that Stonehenge wouldn’t be pulled down? Can this be called impossible, when its already happened in areas controlled by ISIS, whom many of these ‘refugees’ support, or in places like Saudi Arabia where pre-Islamic sites are regularly destroyed? Our culture will not live on, cradled by a new, ‘adopted’ population. It will be wiped away, and replaced by the culture of a new people, and with it will go thousands of years of memory.
