** German leaders welcomed one million unvetted migrants into Germany in 2015.
The Local reported:
A wordless hymn by the anti-Islamic group Pegida called ‘Together we’re strong’ has knocked pop diva Adele off the top of the Amazon singles chart.
The song has been available to buy on Amazon since December 21st and has been among the top 100 best selling singles for four days.
German media picked up on the songs emerging success on Tuesday when it was still at number 26 in the chart. Die Welt reported that despite widespread ridicule, the hymn, which contains no words, was selling well.
Since then it has leaped up to overtake Adele’s hit single ‘Hello.’
It has also jumped above successful German recording artists Robin Schulz and Sido, who have been knocked down to places three and four, respectively.
On YouTube the hymn has also clocked up over 100,000 views so far. However, most of the commentaries underneath ridicule it for its banality.
A PEGIDA activist put video of the German anti-Islamist protester to the hymn by Peggy Sounds, “Germainsam Sind Wir Stark.”
