Ali Sonboly: another example of failed integration that ends up in tragedy

Ali Sonboly
When Angela Merkel stood in front of television cameras and stated Multikulti ist tot (Multiculturalism is dead) and everybody living in Germany should speak German language, she should have kept this in mind when promoting flood immigration.

The arrival of more than 2 million people of non Western background in Germany poses a huge challenge for the German society.

Firstly, they have a completely different cultural outlook.

Secondly, more than 99 per cent of all newcomers will have to surmount enormous obstacles and this will mean that they will have to live on benefits for a very long time, putting pressure on housing, health services, transport, education and so forth. The vast majority arrives in Germany without having a clue about German language.

Countless ghetto-like situations will be created and in these ghetto situations, poverty and isolation will lead to crime. Ali Sonboly was born in Germany and grew up in Germany. Before the attack he shouted 'Ich bin Deutsche (I am German), Despite his Iranian background, he felt that he was German because he was born in Germany and lived most of his life in Germany and spoke German language. Despite feeling that he was German, he felt isolated. He is said to have been suffering from mental health issues and that he had also been victim of bullying.

Angela Merkel should know very well the difference between political statements and reality. She should be very much aware of the cultural differences because when she said 'Multikulti is dead' (Multiculturalism is dead) she was stating that Multiculturalism in Germany has been a complete and utter failure leading to the formation of ghettos.

For a woman that seems so aware of the realities of World War Two, she is completely oblivious to the fact of what led to certain events before, during and after World War Two. What led to the pogroms against Jews across Europe and especially in Germany? Jews looked different from the rest of the population. They dressed differently, behave differently, and even spoke a language that was different from the language spoken by the rest of the population. They were bound to be targeted.

Today, the same issues arise regarding those coming from outside Germany and especially regarding Muslims that rather than trying to be like the rest of the population have their own ghetto culture and then again they look different, behave differently and even speak languages that are not the language spoken by the rest of the population. Therefore, like the Jews, Muslims are bound to be targeted.

The issue about the Muslim attire is that the Muslim attire is like a self-imposed Star of David. Jews were forced to identify themselves wearing a Star of David. Muslims self-identify themselves by making themselves look different and make themselves a target.

The expression 'when in Rome do as the Romans do' is the result of centuries of accumulated experiences. If you don't blend in, you are going to be seen as foreign and if you are seen as foreign you are going to be treated differently. Having said that, this is not a phenomenon that affects only German. It happens across the European Continent and also in Britain. Burkas, long beards, peculiar hats and tresses and other attires immediately single people out as those who do not belong.

It if self-evident that Ali Sonboly was desperately trying to have an identity. Despite that fact that he had Iranian background, he wasn't truly Iranian. Despite the fact that he was born in Germany and Germany was the country where he grew up and lived in for 18 years, he wasn't identified as German.

Even successful people like Cassius Clay struggled with issues of identity. He converted to Islam and became Muhammad Ali. In the US, people talk about African Americans. If his family had not been part of the slavery trade that took them to what is today the United States of America, what would be Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali's name? What about Senator Jesse Jackson or Martin Luther King and countless others? Most of them live today with names given to them by slave owners centuries ago. There are fundamental issues of identity. They have little to do with the African continent. They know for certain that their present names are not the names of the families their ancestors left behind when they were taken away by the Slavery Trade. But they are called African Americans as Ali Sonboly was called German-Iranian. Born in Germany, he lived his life in limbo and lives lived in limbo sooner than later end up in tragedy.

Who actually pulled the trigger of the gun with which Ali Sonboly killed nine people and injured several others?

Politicians, Police Forces and the mass media are trying to find links with what happen in Norway and the events generated by Anders Behring Breivik. In so doing, they completely ignore the realities of flood immigration that leads to issues of identity. René Descartes said: Cogito Ergo Sum (I think, therefore I exist). There is a fundamental relationship between systems of beliefs and social realities.
