Military Review

In the footsteps of Gorbachev and Obama?

Not so long ago, we assumed on the “Military Review” that Angela Merkel, through her peacekeeping efforts (it was about Ukraine and Angels' visit to the earthly ruler Obama), seeks to secure a worthy crown for a political career - to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. This summer and in September, Angela became famous for her desire (given out for Germany’s desire) to place as many refugees as possible in her homeland and allocate as much money as possible to them - not six billion euros, but all ten. Angela, who cares about refugees and opposes Kiev’s armament to the West, becomes like a real angel. But how not ironic, this award it deserves much more than Gorbachev, in which interethnic conflicts began in the USSR, or the evil hegemon and Libyan interventionist Obama.

On one of the popular German TV web pages. "Bericht aus Berlin" (TV channel ARD) a photo collage with Angela Merkel in hijab appeared.

In the footsteps of Gorbachev and Obama?

Video frame from the TV show “Bericht aus Berlin” of the German channel ARD

We will refrain from evaluating the pictures and the fantasies of the authors. We can only say that the Germans themselves, and Europeans as a whole, this collage was not so much surprised, but rather excited and even angry.

Brittanya «The Guardian», for example, reported on numerous accusations of the channel in the "anti-Islamic propaganda." The editors of the television program “Bericht aus Berlin” were inundated with complaints after the montage, in which the German Chancellor wears an outfit corresponding to the one “often worn by Iranian women”. The host of the program, in addition, talked about the threat to German values, the newspaper notes. He also reflected in front of the viewers: “How is life changing? In fact, how do we respond to refugee issues with equality, with women's rights, with press freedom and freedom of speech? These are questions to which we have no answer, and these questions are the breeding ground for fear. ”

Looks like the public misinterpreted everything. The ARD leadership had to respond to critics: photo montage was misunderstood "on many levels."

The answer to outraged viewers, we add, was the October 5 on the confirmed Facebook page of the Bericht aus Berlin program (this page is very popular on the web). Short the note on the morning of October 8 had 492 likes, 444 comments and 83 reposts.

The editors answered, not without humor. The note begins with the words: "Wir freuen uns über die zahlreiche Kritik an unserer Grafik ..." That is, the creators of the picture with the angel in the hijab are happy with the numerous criticisms that have appeared about the picture.

The editors “regret very much” that some people “did not agree,” or even “misunderstood” the meaning of the plot with the chancellor in general. The note states that the presenter was talking about the achievements of Western society - about freedom of expression, freedom of the press, about equality. These freedoms are also “reflected in the collage”.

At the same time, the editors noted that the creation of such pictures journalists, of course, attract the attention of the audience.

Any suggestion that the television channel is working "for the promotion of Islamophobia", the editorial board "categorically rejects".

Note that there is another aspect of this collage. Side. The fact is that rumors about the possible nomination of Angela Merkel for the Nobel Peace Prize are being exaggerated in the major Western media. And the hijab here is just Angela on hand. She actually became the main state person in the European Union that cares for refugees. It is to Germany that numerous migrants from the Middle East, from Afghanistan, from Pakistan and from the north of Africa, also rush.

The agency Bloomberg, with references to analytical and bookmaking companies, reported that the German Chancellor is one of the most likely candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize. "Angela Merkel took the lead in a rather delicate European discussion and voiced a clear moral position that helped turn the tide of the debate", - quotes Interfax Director of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo Christian Berg Harpviken.

Political analyst, chairman of the expert council of the Eurasian Ideas Workshop Foundation, Grigory Trofimchuk, believes that such information appeared right now not by chance. According to him, the nomination of Merkel may have a verified political goal.

“Angela Merkel is a rather controversial candidate. And this is quite unexpected. news- an expert told a radio journalist "Satellite". - Because usually those people who are nominated for the most important Nobel Prize are almost always discussed, they are talked about long before the presentation, their chances are weighed. And Angela Merkel's candidacy appeared quite unexpectedly. But we know who distributes these premiums. Peace Prize has a political sound. We remember to whom this award was awarded at the time, including to Barack Obama. That is, everything is not just like that. Therefore, we can conclude that if such a candidate as Angela Merkel appeared, then this, from the point of view of the West, has its well-defined political goal. ”

According to the political scientist, "inside Europe, where Germany is actually the leader, they sent a stream of refugees so that the European Union would be cut off a little and qualitatively follow the instructions of the West and Washington." This is a whip. On the other hand, Merkel was shown a carrot: "... if she fulfills all the instructions well, then maybe she will receive this award."

But the data of the "Bookmakers Rating", which with reference to professional website lead "Arguments and Facts".

The coefficient that Merkel will receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015 is equal to 3.00. The second and third places in the list of favorites with chances to win 1 to 6 are now shared by Eritrean priest Moses Zerai (also helping refugees) and the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Francis (the fight against poverty).

Leading Researcher of the European Political Studies Department of the IMEMO RAN, Germanist Alexander Kokeev said "Free Press": “We will still not be evaluated, but by those who choose members of the Nobel Committee. I fully admit that from the point of view of someone, Merkel is the wrong candidate. But for objectivity, you need to try to stand on the other side. ”

According to the expert, Germany today is the leader in the EU and the largest leader in the Western world. Angela Merkel remains in the role of an intermediary between the West and Russia “both on issues of Ukraine and on the Minsk agreements,” the analyst recalled. She meets both Putin and Poroshenko. “And she really takes a certain, very benevolent position on refugees,” the expert said further, “which, in my opinion, deserves positive words. This applies to the reception of refugees, and the fight against xenophobia in Germany. ”

“From my point of view,” the expert said, “Angela Merkel still deserves the title of laureate of the Peace Prize much more than, for example, Obama. Who received a high award in advance, when he just led the country. It was hoped that he would correct Bush’s junior political blunders. What will get close to Europe, and reboot with Russia. Everything was premature. ”

* * *

Rumors in a major Western press about the upcoming nomination of A. Merkel for a prestigious award and a collage on an influential German television channel complement each other. Although the collage in Germany was misunderstood, he really hints at the same time tolerance towards migrants and the policies of Angela Merkel towards them. Who, if not Angela (to be more precise, Germany), will disentangle all this mess with refugees, brewed by American and NATO chefs according to the recipe of the “Arab spring”? All other EU countries are noticeably poorer. And their leaders are not so “kind” to migrants.

In addition, Angela Merkel, anyway, is much more worthy of the prize than some of its predecessors.

But where will Germany come if every year it takes a million and a half refugees?

    The Nobel Peace Prize has long been a hallmark. Merkel has a desire to join the "peacemaker" Obama and Judas Gorbachev - a flag in her hands. Only respect for her will not increase from this, but just the opposite.

          no, not like that. The problem of migrants is the subject of bargaining by the EU (in particular, Germany) with Erdogan. The Germans will make unprecedented concessions, I think. The issue of visa-free entry for the Turks is almost resolved. Again the question of a second state language will come up. Ottomanization and, accordingly, the Islamization of Germany will continue. It was once thought sick of nonsense to suggest that a nigga would become a US presom. I am personally sure that in the near future the Turks will become Chancellor of Germany.

To pump millions of Muslims into the most stable country in Europe, and then blow it all up in a flash (by heating ethnic, religious confrontations). After the war of the 45th, the USA was only in chocolate, new bases in Europe, the USSR and other countries paid with gold for military orders, the Americans only benefit from a new war and another destabilization of the situation in the world, outliving hard times overseas, supplying weapons to belligerents, profiting on human grief.

    Grandma Merkel could have been given at least a peace prize, at least an iron knight's cross with oak leaves, if she had done at least something over her years in power. to save at least their successors from the action of the "chancellor-act". If only she, at least in the visible media field, did not go obediently in the wake of US foreign policy, but she got overwhelmed from time to time. Then yes. And so ... Her country is still an occupied territory without the right to independence and the efforts of Frau Merkel are not at all her independent efforts, but assignments from the Zaokan regional committee.

    In Germany, the heirs of Kant and Bismarck became extinct. Although Russia always remains a rival in Europe, it is impossible to spite Russia to ruin its country. Super-tolerance (tolerance is a medical term and means the body accepts a foreign object) will lead to the body being bent or reborn. Both options are sunset in Germany. Ten lard is not critical for Germany, but only for the money. One and a half million foreigners in ten years will become five million (birth rate 2,8 minimum) and they are not going to assimilate. fool

      In this regard, I personally like Le Duc Tho, who refused the Nobel Peace in 1973, saying that the Paris Agreement did not put an end to the Vietnam War and he did not have a moral right to a prize. But Kissinger nominated with him did not refuse from tsatska. Sign episode.

    Old lady Angela has fulfilled one task of creating an "Islamic bomb" under the foundations of Europe. Soon, invisible IS fighters who entered with the flow of refugees will create cells, receive money and weapons from the US special services, and through terrorist attacks will begin to put pressure on the European bureaucracy to speed up decision-making in the interests of the United States on the Euro-Atlantic trade union.
    The second task of this grandmother will be to influence world events in the interests of mattresses through the UN.
    Soon. According to some sources, Angela Merkel, Christine Logard (IMF) and Dalia Grybauskaite (Lithuania) are considered as candidates for the post of UN chairman instead of Ban Ki-moon, according to the principle, two out of three are murky.
