Following a brutal attack by an illegal Afghan migrant in Mannheim that resulted in a German police officer losing his life and an anti-Islam politician being sent to the hospital, Germany’rs ruling left-liberal parties are calling for even more immigration from Syria and Afghanistan.

A day after the death of police officer Rouven L., a migration conference was held in the Paul Löbe House in the Bundestag, the German parliament, where the ruling left-liberal parties primarily ignored the terror attack in Mannheim and focused on how to boost migrants from countries like Afghanistan.

During the conference, Development Aid Minister Svenja Schulze (SPD) called for more migrants from Syria, Afghanistan and other countries to continue to arrive in Germany; however, she said more aid must also be provided locally to support countries of the Global South.

The threat of Islamism in the country played no role at the conference whatsoever, according to the report from Welt.

Social Democrat (SPD) parliamentary group leader Rolf Mützenich instead warned of a “split in the country” over immigration policy.

Other prominent speakers, such as the Federal Government’s Special Representative for Migration Agreements Joachim Stamp, of the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP), even called for a halt on all deportations to countries like Afghanistan, saying that deportations are impossible “if butchers like Assad rule there.”

Deliver a “positive migration narrative”

Stamp says the German court system will not go along with any deportation to Syria either. Under Germany’s new far-left immigration law, every migrant facing deportation will be able to file a lawsuit against their deportation, which could end up leaving murderers and rapists in the country for years, with costly trials at the expense of German taxpayers.

The same FDP politician says the way to counter criticism of mass immigration, which is hitting record numbers in Germany and has led to a record amount of violent crime, is instead to deliver a “positive migration narrative” to society.

‘These countries have a large surplus of young people’

He said he was personally working on gaining more young people from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan to migrate to Germany. Kyrgyzstan, for instance, has a population that is 85 percent Muslim.

“These countries have a large surplus of young people, so we are not taking anything away from anyone,” said Stamp.

Notably, the German public completely rejects this position.

As Remix News reported in October of last year, an Insa poll found hat that 71.1 percent of respondents believe immigrants from countries with a strong Islamic influence pose a “security risk for Germany.” On the contrary, only 9.1 percent answered in the negative. Another 19.8 percent gave no answer.

The poll also shows that 57.7 percent of Germans say they are convinced there are “many” Muslims in Germany who support terror against Israel, while 18.1 percent reject this assertion. Another 24.2 percent did not provide an answer.

Taking it even further, another Insa poll conducted just last month showed that an absolute majority of 52 percent rather agree with the statement that “Germany should generally no longer accept refugees from Islamic countries.” Only 34 percent “disagree” or “tend to disagree” with this statement.

The poll further shows that 54 percent of respondents said they were “afraid that Germans will become a minority in Germany.” On the other hand, 37 percent said they were not concerned.

A relative majority also supports the theory of the Great Replacement, which the domestic intelligence agency the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) classifies as a “right-wing extremist” viewpoint. According to the poll, 45 percent of respondents agree with the statement: “I believe that Europeans are gradually being replaced by immigrants from Africa and the Middle East.” A smaller number of people, 41 percent, reject this statement.
