To the Editor:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will be voted out of office in 2017 because she will be held responsible for the fatal terrorist attack that occurred Monday in Germany.

If it wasn’t for Merkel’s open-door policy to refugees seeking asylum and other suspects from the Middle East, a terrorist may have been prevented from hijacking a tractor-trailer and bulldozing it into a crowd of people killing 12 at a festive Berlin market.

On display were a lot of Christmas lights and decorations which angers the fundamentalist. This kind of attack — driving a large truck into crowds of people — is exactly what Isis has encouraged. It is important to note that in September, Hillary Clinton named Angela Merkel as one of her most admired world leaders.
