It was like a scene from “The Godfather,” but rather than a horse’s head being placed in the bed of a film producer, a pig’s head was left on the doorstep of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The message, delivered at her constituency office in the northeastern town of Stralsund on Saturday, was clear: We don’t want any more Middle Eastern Muslim refugees.

Other than confirming that an investigation has begun, police declined any comment, according to Reuters, which reported:

Merkel’s popularity has waned due to her liberal migrant policy. More than a million migrants arrived in Germany last year, many of them fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa, and concerns about how Europe’s largest economy will be able to integrate them are now rife.

An INSA poll published on Wednesday showed that almost half of Germans did not want her to stay in office for a fourth term after an election next year.

 

Actor George Clooney was severely criticized in February for meeting with Merkel and suggesting the United States should follow Germany’s lead and take in more than the 10,000 refugees Obama has called for.
