The most striking quote from the piece is this: “Cologne-Vingst… is not a stable Central European, but a stable Turkish neighborhood.”
Germany’s Parallel Society Is Intact- - - - - - - - -
Jürgen Friedrichs, professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Cologne, did mean well. The 70-year-old professor had researched the living conditions at the social fringes of [native] Germans and of Turkish immigrants in the Cologne district Vingst. To Leftist newspapers Friedrichs summed up the results of his scientific work:
“German welfare recipients are in a particularly bad situation. They are isolated, have unhealthy eating habits, have fewer visitors, live in homes that are not nearly as clean as those of their Turkish neighbors — even when those Turkish neighbors also depend on welfare payments.”
This immigrant-friendly profiling tendency in the sociologist’s findings is not enough for Leftist ideologues to legitimize his methodological approach, because he dared to split the groups to be researched into Germans and Turks. It would have been more politically correct simply to research people who, as we all know, are all the same. Therefore, Friedrichs, questioned by the MSM interviewers, had to justify his choice of research groups:
“We noticed in other social focal points that Turks condemn vandalism, the beating of their own children, teenage pregnancies and shoplifting more strongly — that is the reason for the preliminary differentiation between Germans and Turks. Our result is clear: Cologne-Vingst (a district of Cologne) has been stabilized by its Turkish residents. In many other problematic neighborhoods in the Ruhr area this will probably not be any different.”
The life story of socially derailed Germans differs significantly from that of immigrants. Therefore their self-esteem is also different:
“A German who lives in a social focal point (welfare benefit status) often has a social ‘descent’ behind him, at the end of which he finds himself moving from unemployment benefits to welfare payments. The circle of friends decreases — after all, nobody wants to be known as loser. Germans feel socially isolated and they fear they will never escape from that isolation; they no longer see any chances (of escape).”
For the Turks, the reference points concerning their self esteem are set quite differently:
“They do not compare themselves with the majority, the German society, but compare themselves to the poor eastern part of Turkey, from which many of them, or at least their ancestors, originate. In comparison with the living conditions there not only their housing situation is satisfactory, but even as welfare recipients they are materially better off than their relatives in Turkey — and not much worse than other migrants in badly paid jobs.”
Our completely politically incorrect conclusion from the study is that the Turkish-Islamic parallel society in Cologne-Vingst is intact, the separation total. The parallel society may, as formulated by Friedrich, “stabilize” the district, but it is not a stable Central European, but a stable Turkish neighborhood. [emphasis added]
The question we have to address is: Do we want more and more, ever larger and more stable Turkish-Muslim neighborhoods in major German cities? These neighborhoods were initially small islands in the Islamic diaspora. But they have grown year after year, and — if we continue the parameters of the last 20 years unabated into the future — we can foresee that in the 2030’s, at the latest, the first major German cities will capsize: they will be dominated by an Arab or Turkish majority, and the non-Muslim population will themselves become islands and withdraw into a parallel society.
Undoubtedly, Arabic- and Turkish-Islamic majority cities in Central Europe will be socially stable. Imams and large mosques will contribute to that. They represent the validity of a world order on religious foundations, a religion that in itself makes complete sense. The Germans who did not convert to Islam will become a disturbing side issue.
Do we want to accept the development into such a future without opposition? The future of Europe will depend on the answer that the majority of Germans will give to this question in the next 10 years.
