18:11 - "Tandis que le sentiment d'hospitalité envers les réfugiés est remplacé par la peur et l'anxiété car nombreux sont ceux qui croient que l'état pourrait être trop faible pour lutter contre la crise de la migration actuelle, Merkel table encore sur le concept d'une Europe unie en cherchant à atteindre trois objectifs:
- répartir les réfugiés parmi les 28 Etats membres de l'UE
rapporte Sputnik International citant le journal allemand Die Zeit.
- renforcer la protection des frontières extérieures de l'Union
- éliminer les causes de l'afflux de réfugiés
Ces trois objectifs sont de pures illusions perdues:
- A peine 1% des relocalisations prévues ont été effectuées en trois mois.
- La frontière gréco-turque se révèle impossible à protéger
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Merkel's Open-Door Policy Is ‘No Longer Convincing'

______________***____________German Chancellor Angela Merkel is being left alone even if she is refusing to believe it, columnist Theo Sommer wrote for German newspaper Die Zeit.
Even members of her CDU party — let alone her colleagues from her coalition partner SPD — are turning away from her and criticizing her policy, the journalist wrote.
Only about one third of German residents are currently supporting Merkel's policy of open doors. The feeling of hospitality towards refugees is being replaced by fear and anxiety, as many believe that the state might be too weak to tackle the current migration crisis.
In Sommer's opinion, Angela Merkel's slogan "We can do this!" is no longer convincing, especially taking into account the difficulties which have arisen from the ongoing influx of refugees.
Merkel is still relying on the concept of a united Europe and seeking to achieve three objectives: distribute refugees among all 28 EU member states, strengthen protection of the external borders of the Union and eliminate the causes of the refugee inflow.
However, it is increasingly becoming clear that other European states are unwilling to do their part to resolve the crisis, with almost all EU states opposing fair distribution of refugee quotas.
Merkel pins her hopes on Turkey, which is expected to better protect maritime borders and place migrants in its territory. However, the EU possesses only 81 million of the three billion euros promised to Ankara, with EU countries being expected to share the burden.
At the same time, there are no real efforts to eliminate the causes of the migration crisis. The long awaited peace talks to resolve the situation in Syria and Iraq have not yet taken place because of the strained relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran.
According to Sommer, the refugee issue will be a real test for Merkel. She may face the most difficult choice of her Chancellorship: to abandon her point of view or "say goodbye" to her career, the author argued.
