Dresden (Germany) (AFP) – Germany’s anti-Islam party PEGIDA stepped up its attacks on Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday, slamming her as “the most dangerous woman in Europe” and demanding she resign.
PEGIDA leader Tatjana Festerling told a rally of thousands of supporters in the eastern city of Dresden that Merkel’s policy of welcoming refugees had turned Germany into a “gigantic camp in the jungle”.
Festerling, who came fourth in Dresden’s mayoral elections in June with 10 percent of the vote, denounced Merkel as “irresponsible” describing her as “the most dangerous woman in Europe”.
Germany, Europe’s largest economy, is expected to take in up to a million people fleeing war and poverty this year, sparking anger among anti-foreigner groups and the PEGIDA movement (“Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident”).
At the latest in a series of weekly rallies, Festerling accused Merkel of deliberately refusing to “protect Germany’s borders”.
