Half of All New German Citizens are Muslims


There will not be a Germany in a generation.

This is what national suicide looks like.

Germany saw a 28% increase in the number of people gaining its citizenship last year, with people from Syria accounting for more than a quarter of those who were naturalized, official data showed Tuesday.

Preliminary figures show that about 168,500 people were granted German citizenship in 2022, the Federal Statistical Office said. That was the highest number since 2002.

Of those, 48,300 — or 29% — were Syrian citizens. That was more than double the previous year’s figure and seven times as high as in 2020, as increasing numbers of people who migrated to Germany between 2014 and 2016 fulfill the requirements for citizenship.

Turkish citizens were the second-biggest group of people gaining German citizenship last year — 14,200 of them, a 16% increase compared to 2021, and with an average of more than 24 years living in Germany…

Germany’s socially liberal government plans to ease the rules for obtaining citizenship, reducing to five years from eight the number of years people are supposed to live in the country before gaining a German passport. People with “special integration accomplishments” would be eligible after three years.

A rough calculation pegs the number of new citizens from Muslim countries at around 80,000 or half the 168,500 number of total citizens. This is fairly consistent with the 2021 numbers.

In 2021, roughly 131,600 foreigners became naturalised German citizens. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that this was an increase of roughly 21,700 naturalisations, or 20%, compared with the previous year. Just over half of the increase is attributable to the large number of naturalisations of Syrians.

The migration crisis didn’t go away with Merkel, if anything it’s worse.

At the end of 2022, roughly 3.08 million people were registered as seeking protection in the Central Register of Foreigners. The number of registered people seeking protection rose by 1.14 million compared with the previous year, according to the Federal Statistical Office…

In 2022, 20.2 million people with a history of immigration were living in Germany. Based on microcensus results, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that this was an increase of 1.2 million, or 6.5%, compared with the previous year (2021: 19.0 million).

Following a rise of 1.3 percentage points, this group of people thus accounted for 24.3% of the population (2021: 23.0%).

For all intents and purposes, there will not be a Germany in a generation. There will be some Russians and Ukrainians and a whole lot of Iraqis, Syrians, and Turks. The former may prove to be less suicidal than the Germans. If so they’ll actually secure their newfound country. But considering their birth rates, the battle will likely be over by then.
