Question on Fundamental Principles to the Alternative für Deutschland Party (Part 2)
Are the AfD Barking Up the Wrong Tree?
About the Author
Dr. Hans Peter Raddatz counts, along with Dr. Tilman Nagel, as one of the most prolific specialists in Middle Eastern and Oriental studies in Germany (PI-News). He is also an economist, consultant and writer. After being active for many years representing the interests of international banks in the Near East, he wrote numerous books on the fundamentals of globalisation, Islam and the Islamisation of the West. He has made contributions to the Encyclopaedia of Islam and has translated Bat Ye’or’s Europe, Globalization, and the Coming of the Universal Caliphate, providing it with a commentary.

In the first part of this two-part series, Dr. Raddatz described the political, constitutional and journalistic-propaganda pressures that can be brought to bear on the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) as the party attempts to establish a real “alternative for Germany” while continuing to work within a socio-political “system” to which Chancellor Merkel has effectively declared that “there is no alternative”.
In Part 2, Dr. Raddatz describes the combined influence of corporate globalism, socialism at the level of state institutions and the increasing application of Koran-compliant standards to an underclass. He outlines mechanisms already in place which threaten to suppress or co-opt any alternative virtually as soon as it is even thought.
Among the German elites of today, Dr. Raddatz names two prominent representatives of this Islam-admiring tradition. Among the “tips of the icebergs”, with strong socialist backgrounds, are Sigmar Gabriel of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) who was Minister of Foreign Affairs in the last Merkel government and Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD) who has been President of Germany since March of 2017.
Dr. Raddatz closes with a strategy by which the AfD might avoid being absorbed by the Uni-Party system before the latter becomes completely “totalised” (totalisiert).
Are the AfD Barking Up the Wrong Tree? (Part 2)

What sets the current situation apart is the massive growth in the power of Islam, which, as an “ideological fission fungus” (Raddatz 2001/2002), has developed into the most important standard of political “leadership competence”. Who wishes to escape it must avoid the growing constraints of the system, and that requires the construction of a completely independent propaganda apparatus. Only when it is daily made incontrovertibly clear to the people that for half a century several generations of “democratically elected” politicians and their enforcers in the media, education and churches have systematically rendered them stupid, dispossessed and ever more massively replaced can an effective alternative emerge.
Apart from the Uni-Party’s list system, which by itself circumvents democratic elections, the ruling class will thwart any alternative and absorb any competition as long as they are able to influence the statistics and push through their corporate-oriented labour, social and cultural policies with the use of defamation, bribery and intimidation of resistances. While this alliance of economically radical globalisation and socialist destruction of the civil state, which in the USA is called “welfare for millionaires”, has enforced a perverted “tolerance”, the Islamic invasion has brought about a condition of quasi-war, which “justifies” despotism and turns the local Hartz-IV-existence into a Koran-compliant norm, because the latter is an underclass norm, for the invasion knows “no limits” (Merkel).
Thus the elites are blossoming into the jihad accomplices of the Muslim Brotherhood, for they are in the tradition of German radicalism, which with Lessing, Goethe & Co. were already admirers of the feudal Islam-despots. And with the exploitation of the indigenous population, they are transforming their country into a paradise of violence for Allah’s emigrants. This is promised in the Koran and can lend a quasi-religious nuance to the Western practise of radicalism, thus helping to explain why the new quasi-People of God are not deported and are cared for by an army of well-paid welcoming-specialists who are perfecting the ruination of the state in their own interests.
How far we are from a real alternative is evidenced by the innumerable “experts” in all institutions who, at taxpayers’ expense and with their continual demands for “reforms”, help themselves and the administrations of the social— cultural— and Islam-industry to lavish incomes. They are the outcome of a long-term trend which, after the armed march of the father of terrorism and Muslim Brother, Arafat, into the UN (1974), began with the founding of euro-Arabic political— and media-organisations, which attracted enormous grants from the EU and the OIC and have been pressing ahead since 2005 with their joint Islamisation programme.
That Helmut Kohl’s “spiritual-moral turnaround” [geistig-moralische Wende] prepared the way for the subsequent “Agenda 2010”, not only in respect of the technology of labour, but also in a radically political way, subsequent events confirm. The spiritual-moral turnaround is reflected in the official agencies occupied by the ’68 activists and also among the civil servants of the Interior Ministry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who in the 1990s, in discrete meetings in Lebanon, galvanised what today is the perfect alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood. And with the combined “blessing” of Church and global corporations they laid the groundwork for the targeted infiltration of Islam-oriented forces into government ministries, universities, party foundations and churches right up to the Vatican.
