All week long there have been heavy clashes between Kurds and salafists on Hamburg's streets. Breitbart has the goods.

"...Gangs have been taking to the streets of Germany for much of this week, as “peaceful” protests by Yazidi Kurds were attacked by “ISIS terrorist Militias” of Salafist Muslims armed with broken bottles, machetes, and in some cases even firearms. The violence echoes that of the ISIS conflict in Syria and Iraq, and the riots in Turkey that killed 14 this week.

Dozens have now been injured in Germany as the numbers protesting increased night-on-night, with 400 Kurds facing off 400 Muslims on Tuesday.

An estimated 1,000 Kurds turned out on Wednesday to continue the protest, and many returned to the same mosque again on Wednesday night in defiance of their attackers.
Police, who had been called up from several states was able to keep disturbance to a comparative minimum but there were still ugly scenes, as widely reported in the German press.
Weapons included “knives, brass knuckles, iron bars, a machete and even kebab skewers”, and police reported confiscating a gun with ammunition, following another firearm taken earlier in the week.

Many Germans have expressed alarm at the events, saying the fights showed Germany was becoming a violent side-show in global conflicts, and there had been a "blurring of borders in the war propagated by the IS".

Joachim Lenders, chairman of the local police officers union said the violence was of "civil-war like excess" and "without the professionalism of the police people would have died". Protests also took place in Berlin, Bremen, Hannover, Dusseldorf, Dortmund, Münster, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart."

Check out the Daily Mail's coverage too.

A couple of years ago, a certain Andrew Neather, a former advisor to Tony Blair, David Blunkett and Jack Straw publicly admitted that the massive increase in the influx of migrants into the UK was a deliberate attempt by Labour to "open up the UK to mass immigration" and to "radically change the country and rub the Right's noses in diversity".

As we have been covering ad nauseam on DowneastBlog, this kind of policy was implemented basically all over Western Europe, courtesy the socialists and greens BUT with the tacit approval of much of what passes for the "Right" or center right.

We are increasingly beginning to see how that 'rubbing our noses in diversity' is panning out. One man knew it all decades ago:

'rubbing our noses in diversity'

Hi Michael!

You might want to check out the 2011 book by Patrick J. -Pat- Buchanan "Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?"

While I do not consider myself a paleoconservative, I bought it on the strength of the references and index that are found in the book. Amongst which that quote about "rubbing people's noses is diversity". (You can use Google Books to find it in the book: it's on page 174. It's through Google Books searches that I ended up finding Buchanan's book.) He's an American, but it's quite clear that the man has done his homework when it comes to the situation in Europe.
