Angela Merkel wins in style

By S.H.Moulana

German Chancellor Angela Merkel indeed never wavers to stand by what is right and never play to the gallery like many other politicians normally do for the sake of votes.

She was rightly named ‘Time’s Person of the Year’ in 2015’, as she bravely handled the Syrian refugee problem despite vehement opposition from within her country.

Merkel not only led her country with courage, but also guided the EU countries in the right direction. While liberally allowing the refugees to migrate to Germany she had to face many stiff obstacles by the nationalists in her country, but she squashed all that by saying “When it comes to human dignity, we cannot make compromises.”

US Republican presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, once tweeted ‘Time magazine would never pick me as ‘Person of the Year’ despite being the big favorite, they picked a person who is ruining Germany.

” We would like to tell Trump that she beat him by a huge margin for the highly appreciated policy and her concern for common humanity over short-term petty politics.”

Israeli journalist and peace activist Uri Avnery is absolutely right to consider Merkel as a symbol of moral courage in face of the growing xenophobic sentiments in Germany and Europe.

Other politicians would have tried to swim with the flow. She is aware that her immigration policy might end her and her party’s political future. But that's what the moral courage is all about.Uri is absolutely right to consider Merkel as a symbol of moral courage in face of the growing xenophobic sentiments in Germany and Europe.

But that's what the moral courage is all about. So her uncompromising principles made her to become German Chancellor for the fourth time. She is not only a leader for Germany but an undisputed leader of the free world.

What a great leader is she!
