As support wanes, Merkel takes message to voters - Deutsche WelleFriday, October 21, 2016
You don't think we've brought terrorism to Germany by letting in asylum seekers?" was one question directed at the chancellor during a campaign appearance in Neustrelitz.
The man went on to express his concerns about Islam's presence in Germany when he sees hate being preached from mosques. "I think the majority of people don't want Islam in Germany."
Merkel couldn't and wouldn't let that stand. She admitted there was an effort underway to win migrants over to Islamic terrorism. "The phenomenon of IS terrorism is not one that came by way of refugees. It is and was here."
Moreover, she said, people living in Germany and other western countries - who were not asylum seekers - had played a part in Islamic terrorism. "Many from here have gone to Syria for training - Muslims and converts born here who are often the most diehard terrorists in the 'IS' cause."
More police, more surveillance
Angela Merkel won't change her stance on migration policy, but domestic security is a different story. The topic "plays a large role given current circumstances," she said in Ribnitz-Damgarten. "There's a big task before us in the years ahead."
The government wants a combination of better equipped security personnel and enhanced powers to counter increased threats. "More people plus more ways to intervene," Merkel said.

"With social media, citizens have more abilities than law enforcement," she said. This can't continue, she said. Merkel expressed her support for more video surveillance in public places, possibly to be combined with facial recognition software to track down wanted terrorists and criminals.
"We are doing everything humanly possible to assure your security," she said. "Where there are holes, we need to go back and consider new types of security."
Together in music
Whether such proclamations are enough to bring the CDU the votes it needs won't be known for another two weeks. "It's extremely important for those who want to make constructive progress that they are well positioned on election day on September 4," Merkel said in support of her party's candidates for the state parliament, and encouraged those in attendance to pass on her message.
At the conclusion of the event in Ribnitz-Damgarten, a choir sang in praise of Mecklenburg. Merkel sang along loudly, holding back her party colleague, Christian Ehlers, from interrupting the choir by speaking again. The onlookers in the market square applauded and, at least in that moment, Merkel was one of them.
