Henry Kissinger: Mass Immigration Of People With Different Values A ‘Grave Mistake’

 Allowing mass amounts of people into a country who do not follow the country’s fundamental values is a “grave mistake,” according to former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

The century-old former top diplomat sat for an interview with Germany’s Welt TV and discussed Germany’s current problems with social cohesion and institutional integrity after high numbers of immigrants and refugees have been allowed into the country. Reflecting on anti-Israel protests going on in Germany, Kissinger suggested that mass immigration was causing severe friction in German society.

“It was a grave mistake to let in so many people of totally different [cultures and religions] and concepts, because it creates a pressure group inside each country that does that,” Kissinger said, according to POLITICO Europe.

Kissinger, a Jew who fled Germany with his family in 1938, said that protesters marching through Berlin’s streets in support of Hamas’ Saturday terrorist attack on Israel is a “painful” sight.

Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group that controls the Gaza Strip, launched an unprecedented attack on Israel on Saturday. Terrorists targeted civilians regardless of age or gender, killing over 1,300 Israelis, wounding thousands more, and taking an untold number captive, including small children.

Israel’s response, which has so far consisted of ridding Israel of Hamas terrorists and targeted strikes against Hamas military targets in Gaza, has prompted protests in support of Hamas and Palestinians in Gaza in major cities across the West. In the United States, numerous cities and college campuses have seen pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel protests.

New York City’s Democratic mayor, Eric Adams, said that he was “deeply disturbed by the message of hate urging violence in our communities.”

Police departments across the country were put on alert after former Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal called for Muslims to rise up in support of Hamas’ invasion of Israel on Friday. The former Hamas leader called to protest in support of the “Al-Aqsa Flood,” what Hamas has called its Saturday invasion of Israel.


“We declare next Friday, ‘The Friday of the Al-Aqsa Flood,’ as a day of general mobilization in our Arab and Islamic world and among the free people of the world,” Meshaal said in a statement sent to Reuters. “It is a day to rally support, offer aid, and participate actively. It is a day to expose the crimes of the occupation, isolate it, and foil all its aggressive schemes. It is a day to demonstrate our love for Palestine, Jerusalem, and Al-Aqsa. It is a day for sacrifice, heroism, and dedication, and to earn the honour of defending the first Qibla of Muslims, the third holiest mosque, and the ascension of the trusted Messenger.”

The Biden administration has struck a pro-Israel message and moved two aircraft carriers and numerous aircraft into positions close to Israel. The moves come despite a vocal minority in the Democratic Party that have expressed support for Palestinians and suggested that Israel is to blame for Hamas’ terrorism.

“The failure to recognize the violent reality of living under siege, occupation, and apartheid makes no one safer. No person, no child anywhere should have to suffer or live in fear of violence. We cannot ignore the humanity in each other,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), the daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents, said in a statement earlier this week. “As long as our country provides billions in unconditional funding to support the apartheid government, this heartbreaking cycle of violence will continue.”

Daily Wire Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro debunked the accusations against Israel during an interview with Megyn Kelly on her show Tuesday.

“Israel unilaterally pulled out of the Gaza Strip in an attempt to create some sort of security arrangement, presumably protect the Jews at the northern tip of the Gaza Strip, and allow the Palestinians some chance at electing a government,” Shapiro said, referring to the pullout in 2005. “They then promptly elected Hamas, a State Department-designated terror group in an election that was fully legitimate as attested to by [former U.S. President] Jimmy Carter.”

“So the attempt to tie this to settlements is insane,” Shapiro said, “because again, there are no settlements inside the Gaza Strip. The areas that were attacked [in Israel] have been part of the state of Israel since 1948. This is not post-1967 settlements in the West Bank — in the so-called West Bank; Judea and Samaria.”
