German food bank has incited the usual hysteria among leftist bleeding hearts after it issued a ban on Muslim invaders posing as migrants who don’t hold German identity cards or passports because they are scaring away German citizens, especially the elderly and young single women.
Global Handelsblatt A branch of Tafel Deutschland in Essen, which owns 930 food banks across Germany which provide much-needed help to people in crisis, is now at risk of forcing migrants into hunger. It said that new customers will now be required to have ID cards, for now, and would only serve newcomers if they hold a German passport, resulting in most new migrants unable to receive assistance.
Jörg Sartor, who heads the branch of the Essen Tafel charity, said that 75 percent of the 6,000 users of the service were Muslim migrants, up from 35 percent in 2015. The charity is run mostly by volunteers who parcel up the food which is often the surplus from supermarkets.
Essen Tafel is part of a national charity, Tafel Deutschland, and is one of 930 food banks operating throughout Germany. “Tafel” is German for “table” and recipients must be registered for social welfare in order to be eligible for the food parcels. Essen Tafel is the only one with a policy of this kind, a spokesperson for the umbrella group told local media.
Other branches of the foodbank charity distanced themselves from the decision by the Essen branch. The head of the national umbrella organization for the Tafel foodbanks, Jochen Brühl, also criticized the decision in Essen. “We can state this very clearly: Need is the priority, the background should never matter,” he told broadcaster ARD in an interview on Friday morning.
Others said the decision was playing to right-wing populists. It “leads to stereotyping and marginalization,” Germany’s minister for family and youth, said Katarina Barley.
Mr. Sartor defended his decision: “We want German grandmothers to be able to keep coming to us,” he told a local newspaper, explaining that over the last two years, single mothers and older women had been scared off from the service because of by the young rowdy Muslim men, speaking in the queue for food.
Mr. Sartor said he had personally seen “a lack of respect for women” among Muslim male users. “When we opened the door in the morning there was always pushing and shoving without any thought given to the grandmothers in the line,” he said.
Some German commentators were sympathetic to Mr. Sartor’s position. “Essen Tafel is not a state institution,” wrote journalist Torsten Krauel in an op-ed for the conservative Die Welt newspaper on Friday morning. “They can do what their organization needs to do. And they are not doing this because of xenophobia but in order to take care of those who need their care. They’ve done the right thing.”
