Angela Merkel’s Approval Rating Plummets after Attacks in Germany - Poll
Public support for German Chancellor Angela Merkel has dropped in the wake of a recent series of attacks in the country, mainly on account of the government’s welcoming policy towards refugees, a new poll showed on Thursday.
The approval rating of Merkel’s work as head of government has decreased to 47%, down 12 percentage points from July, according to a poll of 1,000 people conducted by ARD TV station. Thirty-four percent of the respondents in August poll said they were satisfied or very satisfied with the government's open-door policy towards refugees.
This was Angela Merkel’s second worst poll score since her re-election in 2013. In February 2016, 46% of the respondents approved of the German Chancellor, according to thelocal.de.
Angela Merkel has defended her open-door policy towards refugees despite the attacks.
An asylum seeker from Afghanistan armed with an axe and a knife attacked passengers on a train in Wuerzburg and an asylum applicant from Syria blew himself up outside a music festival in Ansbach last month. Both attackers claimed allegiance to the Islamic State group.
There were two more migrant-related attacks in July. In Munich, a German-Iranian shot dead nine people before killing himself. In Reutlingen, a Syrian killed a woman and injured two others in what was believed to be a domestic incident.

The time to use an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth this leads us to the Crusade versus Jihad.
Germany must use the Hun/Aryan tradition to trigger a defense for the German and not worry about the refugee issues but spiritual warfare as what is right and what is wrong.
The bomb is when Germany realizes the killing of a Catholic Priest in France is contrary to the spiritual beliefs of the "Holy Spirit and Trinity" - Heilige Geist.
The union of three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one Godhead, Germany will awaken with force.
By the end of 2016 in Germany will be born more kids of Muslim parents than German kids.. It is statistics. If Germany was a strong nation it would have overthrown Merkel so far.....Turkish is a strong nation from what we have seen. certainly not Germany.
But laws have been altered in the way they are carried out in western europe to stop people defending themselves and their families - if they try to defend them, they are the ones likely to find themselves in court while the attacker goes free. And the police are afraid of being called racist to the extent that they also fear defending the taxpayers (who pay their salaries) against a horde of people who have openly declared their hatred of us and their intent to wipe us out. What has happened in western europe will also happen in other EU countries unless those countries have leaders prepared to defend their people as in Hungary
The "Deutschen Nationalismus und Patriotismus", has a strength not to be reckoned but respected.
I remember my Grandfather in Sofia explaining to me during WWII the factor that German Catholicism protection of the Christian Orthodox Church contrary to Soviet anti-Religion doctrine.
Now think this concept contrary to Islamization doctrine.
