The most unprecedented attacks that have ever taken in Germany have sparked a flame that just won’t burn out.
A rise in Merkel-Sceptic citizens has swept over Germany, as Chancellor Merkel waited a whole 24 hours before coming out to give her usual condolences speech.

This time she had given herself has been claimed that it was because of her knowing that the public will begin to question her leadership and her inability to provide security for her citizens.
Nine people were killed and 27 others injured at the Olympia mall in the capital of the German state of Bavaria on Friday by a shooter who later took his own life.
Peter Schulze, professor of International Relations at the University of Goettingen, said that a poll by ZDF showed that a record 75 percent of Germans expect more terror attacks in the country because of the refugee influx and Merkel’s ‘open door’ policy.
This is hardly a good sign if the public have to live in fear constantly and, as President Hollande said for France, ‘learn to live’ with terrorism.
“The German leadership refuses to admit it, but the country’s program of integration of Muslims has failed,” —Mueller.
Hansjorg Mueller from the Alternative for Germany party has addressed Merkel’s silence, calling the German leader “a person without any emotions.”
“Everything can crumble… every German could be destroyed – she will be silent. But as soon as one German citizen dares to defend his interests, she’ll cry of some kind of xenophobia. As long as Germans are the victims, she’s silent,” he said.
Merkel is out of her depth. Germany needs real leadership. Other leaders addresses the attacks much faster. Disgraceful. #merkelmussweg
