Yes, I know Mrs. Merkel said that as part of a dependent clause, with a conditional preceding it. But as far as I can tell, the conditions prescribed are now coming into effect, so it seems to be true: Germany is not her country.
Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|0:00||I just want to remind everybody again that the photos that went around the world|
|0:04||were not of my visit to Heidenau at the reception center ,|
|0:10||because there weren’t even any photographers there [translator’s comment: THREE photos of her holding the conference in Heidenau!],|
|0:14||but rather the photos that were seen around the world were of the citizens|
|0:18||who the morning after that decision welcomed these migrants in|
|0:22||Munich at the train station and elsewhere.|
|0:24||people who have without complaining helped the many thousands of refugees,|
|0:29||and that’s where the world said this is a very nice gesture,|
|0:31||and it came out of the hearts of the people who helped.|
|0:34||I have to honestly say that if now we have to start to apologize for the fact|
|0:38||that we show a friendly face in the presence of need,|
|0:43||then… this is not my country.
