Germany has been slow and until now no EU critical, Islam critical, immigration critical party has made its way into parliament. But something is changing: The Germans are starting to realize that demanding that Islam reform and limiting its power and Muslim immigration is not about racism or Nazism – that it is just pure survival and about compassion for present and future generations of non-Muslims and freedom-longing, secular Muslims forced to live under the Sharia – the tide will turn. Germany is the most powerful country in the EU: only with the Germans’ help can we cancel EU’s policy on open borders and endless Muslim immigration. Whoever starts similar demonstrations in other countries are true, historical heros.

Worthwhile Canadian Sun News clip about the PEGIDA-demonstrations:
From Die Welt:
PEGIDA demonstrations are taking to the streets of Dresden every week to protest against the “Islamization” of Europe. Their aims may be muddled but they shouldn’t be ignored, says at least one political analyst.
“Some Dresdeners have updated an old East German tradition: The “Monday demos” that used to gather to protest against the Communist regime before 1989. In the past few weeks they been revived in the growing “PEGIDA” demonstrations against Islam. PEGIDA stands for “Patriotische EuropA�er Gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes” or “Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West,” and associated demonstrations have sprung up in several cities around Germany – “Kagida” in Kassel, “WA?gida” in WA?rzburg, “Bogida” in Bonn, and “DA?gida” in DA?sseldorf.
But nowhere have they been as successful as in Dresden, capital of the state of Saxony, where 10,000 people gathered last Monday (08.12.2014), along with an almost equal number of counter-demonstrators. As an organization, PEGIDA’s online statements are benign: “EVERY human being, regardless of nationality or religion, is welcome!!!” the Facebook page reads, or “We want to preserve our free-thinking, our free and open lifestyle for ALL people living in Europe!”
Meanwhile, the statements about Islam are aimed squarely at extremist groups: “We will not accept any ‘activities’ of IS, PKK, al Qaeda, or whatever they’re all called.” That statement is odd not only because the PKK is a Kurdish separatist group whose ideology is not Islamist but leftist, but also because membership in any of these groups is already illegal in Germany, although they are active here.
While the initial demonstrations were against what PEGIDA called “religious wars” being carried out in Germany – after isolated fights between Kurds and Sunni Muslims were reported in some cities – the demonstrations have turned out to be about much more than “Islamization.” Asylum abuse, the mainstream press, the preservation of German identity, and even the “early sexualization of children,” have been favorite themes among the protesters.
