As the old song goes, everything old is new again. With the blessings of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, the Waffen-Schutzstaffel activated an entire mountain infantry division comprised of Muslims during World War II to fight for Germany.
It may have been on purpose back then, but now der Deutsch Bundeswehr has very possibly Schitzen en zeir Lederhosen over the latest report that more than 60 ISIS terrorists have managed to stealth their way in the German Armed Forces.
As reported by The Telegraph (of London, England), the German military is calling for tighter security and background checks on all recruits. As it turns out, Germany’s über-liberal immigration policies have allowed the conditions to be prime for jihadist infiltration.
As reported, “In a draft amendment seen by German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, senior Bundeswehr officials said all applicants should be screened by the intelligence
services for jihadist links before they begin basic training.”
Furthermore, it was also disclosed that “64 Islamists are already feared to have embedded themselves within the armed forces…”
But what may be a perfect example of being careful what you ask for, it was recently disclosed that “Germany is seeking to recruit more Muslims into its army: it cannot find enough native Germans to fill its ranks after it abolished the draft.”
German Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière announced his intention to “multiculturalize” the German Bundeswehr (Federal Defense Force) during a June 20 headhunting mission to the Turkish capital Ankara, where he declared: “I want the [German] army to be representative of a cross-section of the German population.”
Germany formally discontinued compulsory military service on July 1, 2011 as part of a comprehensive reform aimed at creating a smaller and more agile army of about 185,000 professional soldiers.
But during its first twelve months of existence, Germany’s new all-volunteer army has been unable to meet its recruiting goals, and military manpower prospects look dim for the foreseeable future.
In a desperate search for soldiers, German military officials have now identified Germany’s Muslim Turkish population (3.5 million and counting) as a new source for potential recruits.
