Germany is contributing to forcing millions to flee

DAMASCUS/BERLIN (Own report) – With its foreign policy, Germany is
largely contributing to starvation and armed conflicts on several
continents, thereby forcing millions to flee – also toward Europe.
This becomes evident, when one looks at Berlin’s policies regarding
various countries in Southeast Europe, Africa, the Middle East and
Central Asia. Political interference and even occasional military
interventions have, in many cases, subverted nations and forced their
populations to seek refuge. German policy toward Syria is a good
example. According to official statistics, the Federal Republic of
Germany has granted asylum to more than 100,000 Syrian refugees. A
brief analysis published in 2012 by the German Institute for
International and Security Affairs (SWP) in Berlin, indicates that the
German government, in its choice of political support for the
insurgency against Assad’s government, had consciously accepted the
risk of creating the war conditions that would force these refugees to
flee. The German government is condoning, still today, its close
allies’ assistance to jihadist organizations, such as the “Islamic
State” (IS), in spite of the IS having again forced countless numbers
to flee. Berlin continues to insist on maintaining the embargo on
Syria, even though for years observers have been admonishing that this
creates unbearable living conditions for the entire population.
Critics are calling for an immediate end to the embargo.
