Europe turns young again - due to Muslim migrants

The number of births has gone up and so has the number of mosques.

“I think I’m the last German, ” German writer Botho Strauss wrote in Der Spiegel magazine not long ago. “I would rather live in a society that is dying than in one that, out of economic and demographic speculation, is being mixed together with foreign peoples and made young again”.

However, Germany has not followed the advice or bent to the will of the septuagenarian writer. The birth rate in Germany has reached its highest level in 33 years, boosted because of the children born to migrant Muslim families.

This was revealed by the German Federal Office of Statistics. The birth rate stood at 1.5 births per woman in 2015, the highest figure since 1982 when it was 1.51. It is also the highest birth rate since the reunification of Germany in 1990.

Europe’s demography is already changing drastically thanks to Muslim migrants.

Sweden’s population grew by 55,300 units in the first half of this year. Immigration has accounted for much of the growth. The population of Sweden is now 9,906,331 people. And the magic number of 10 million will be achieved in 2017 thanks to the new arrivals.

The Netherlands also has experienced its highest population growth since decades. If the Dutch numbers would be applied to the UK, which has a population four times that of the Netherlands, the increase would amount to the creation of a new city the size of Oxford. Today 22 percent of the
Pew Research Center explains that the immigrant population has increased by more than one percentage point in [a year in] many European countries, pointing out that it took “a decade” of immigration to the United States to do the same.
Dutch population is of foreign origin. Sweden and the Netherlands are two examples of welcoming countries in which we can measure clearly immigration their demographic weight.

An analysis by the Pew Research Center explains that the immigrant population has increased by more than one percentage point in many European countries, pointing out that it took “a decade” of immigration to the United States to do the same. For Europe it took just one year.

Add to that the 1.3 percent increase in Hungary which triggered hostile reactions from the population and the authorities. The same is true for Germany.

A scenario confirmed by Eurostat for the first time this year is that the number of deaths exceeded that of births. It has never happened before, but it is a result of the demographic collapse of many of the EU member countries. In Germany, the death rate was one quarter higher than the birth rate; in Italy even a third higher. Yet, this year there was also a growth of the EU population, which went from 508,000,000 to 510.1000000, attributable to migration flows.

The demographics of Europe will soon return to budding. The new European is young and religious, the old one is gray and skeptical.
