Merkel warned by Helmut Kohl: Europe cannot be home to migrants whose beliefs are different to ‘the foundations of our values’

Kohl, who was German leader for 16 years and oversaw the country’s reunification, took a swipe at the woman he chose as his successor after remaining silent on the issue since the crisis began.

He commented in a newspaper at the weekend: ‘Europe cannot become a new home for the millions of people in need throughout the world.

‘National policies of the lone-knight variety must be left in the past.

‘For the most part they have a belief which is different from the Judeo-Christian beliefs which form part of the foundations of our social order and our values.’
