Solidarity. This is the word that is probably is the most used and misused term in European politics. Its original meaning is supposed to mean to show solidarity to someone who is in trouble. That is how Germany is also using the term. They are in trouble (not the migrants) and they expect other member states to help them, having made a fatal mistake in letting in uncontrolled masses of people from Syria, Iraq and who knows from where else. The German authorities had to realize quickly that neither the authorities nor its policy-makers could get to grips with mass migration, a phenomenon of which Ms Merkel expected to fill up the labour market. However, most migrants are not willing to integrate, they cannot find employment and, as a consequence, they start to commit crimes, like drug dealing, theft or violence against women and the most vulnerable. Even though the federal government received warnings from several German politicians that the federal states cannot cope with the influx of people, the German chancellor decided not to heed these them. Instead, Ms Merkel and their political allies invented a special form of solidarity, which is used day in and day out to try to save the face of the Iron Lady. The vast majority of the people in the European Union don't wish to accept Brussels's solidarity, which basically intends to compel other member states to bear the brunt of Germany's irresponsible adventure and strategic dilettantism. The Balkan states, Austria, and Hungary have given ample solidarity to Germany last year when they organized the travelling of these uncontrolled masses to Germany at their own expense, without any help from Brussels. The clueless trio of Mr Juncker, Mr Schulz and Ms Merkel looked on with calm how tiny Macedonia tried to bring in some order. Of course, as the Macedonian PM told later, that too, without any sort of help from the European Union. As the number of migrants grew, so did the random attacks against women, jews and christians. Many thousands of Jews who left France and Germany for Israel would also have liked to get some solidarity. Many women, who were humiliated in Cologne and elsewhere, would have liked some solidarity from Ms Merkel and Henriette Raker, the mayor of Cologne. Instead, women were given the advice to keep an arm's length from migrants, (basically telling them that if they are raped, its their fault) and were given the chance to travel in segregated carriages. The enlightened reader would have thought that these kinds of problems were consigned to history, but, no, racial and religious segregation reared its ugly head, in a country that has been known for its progression and development. Jews would also have liked to have some part in German solidarity. Instead, many of them dare not to go out in to the streets wearing their religious attire, because they are exposing themselves to attacks by muslims. Some of the policemen and policewomen also would have wanted some solidarity, many of them who described in bestseller books, how their job had become impossible in areas where there are big numbers of muslim migrants. Instead of solidarity, they got the deafening silence from the German mainstream media. Christians, especially those who fled from IS would have also wanted a little solidarity. These people have been for years the victims of genocide. The number of Iraqi Christians sunk from two million to 180,000 in a decade. Most of them fled, died or were forced to convert. They too, wanted solidarity. But, astonishingly, even in Germany, where they thought they could live in peace and without the thought of having to die, they had to come to terms with the harsh reality that in the German refugee camps, they are abused, beaten, and threatened, just as they were in Iraq. Oh yes, many of them would like some solidarity and the help of the UN or other human rights organizations that are so worried about the state of muslim migrants in the EU member state Greece, but are not really interested in what is going on in Erbil, Iraq, where there is a huge camp for the displaced Christians, and who are mainly helped by Catholic aid organizations. What about the citizens of the European Union? Are we to receive a little solidarity from the liberals whose policies made sure that right wing extremism is an every day phenomenon? Who is going to solidarize with the average European whose streets and public squares are occupied by far right groups looking for a fight? No matter what we call it, Jobbik ,Soldiers of Odin, Pegida, Front National or Muslim Patrols, this phenomenon was made possible by the reckless policies of Brussels. Last, but not least, the police forces of the Balkan countries and of Hungary would have appreciated a little solidarity from the chancellor. Many of them don't understand how can it be possible that when so called right wing radicals in Germany attack the police, they are only doing their job and defend the people, whereas if the attack is committed by agressive migrants the very same police is made out to be a bully. The people don't want the solidarity as invented and interpreted by Ms Merkel and Brussels. Solidarity and responsibility are two different things. Brussels has to face its own mistakes and instead of demanding solidarity, they have to take responsibility. As far as we are concerned, we will still be showing solidarity for those who are in need of it. The humiliated women, the abused and displaced Christians and the intimidated and persecuted Jews. And for the all the people of Europe who think that solidarity cannot be appropriated.
