Angela Merkel announced her German government’s secret weapon in the fight against terrorism is “compassion” and claimed that her open-door mass migration policy, which directly brought terrorists to Germany, is a success that the rest of the world should follow.

In the Cancellor’s New Year address to Germany, Merkel kept a straight face while claiming that the terror attacks committed by Islamist migrants in Würzburg, Ansbach, and recently at a Christmas market in Berlin were not attacks on Western civilisation but an attack on ‘refugees’ and Germany’s willkommenskultur (‘welcome culture’).

She stated terrorists “mock [the willingness of Germany to help] with their deeds [acts of terrorism], like they mock those who really need and deserve our protection.”

Viral Message Verification- As reported by PBS NewsHour “In Germany, Angela Merkel's migration policy "was incredibly unpopular," @ianbremmer says. A lack of support for it "really hurt her."”

Although Angela Merkel defended of her open migration policy but she never said that it was a success. In a interview published in the Welt am Sonntag newspaper before Germany’s September 24 federal election, Merkel said she had decided to open borders to migrants fleeing war and turmoil in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan because the situation was “extraordinary.” At the time, Germany took in more than 1 million refugees.

She also admitted that for some time that they didn’t had control at Germany’s border.

Her migration policy caused outrage among some at the time, leading to a surge in support for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.
