Publicité

Angela Dorothea Merkel , née Kasner le 17 juillet 1954 à Hambourg, est une femme d'État allemande, chancelière fédérale depuis 2005.

Physicienne de formation, membre de l'Union chrétienne-démocrate , elle est élue sans discontinuer au Bundestag depuis 1991. Elle est ministre fédérale des Femmes et de la Jeunesse au sein du cabinet Kohl IV, de 1991 à 1994, avant de se voir confier, le ministère fédéral de l'Environnement, de la Protection de la Nature et de la Sécurité nucléaire du cabinet Kohl V, jusqu'en 1998. Angela Merkel devient, en 2000, la première femme présidente de la CDU.

Le 22 novembre 2005, après la victoire relative de la droite aux élections fédérales, elle est élue chancelière de la République fédérale d'Allemagne par les membres du Bundestag, prenant la tête d'une « grande coalition » alliant la CDU et le Parti social-démocrate . Elle est reconduite dans ses fonctions à la suite des élections de 2009, et forme un gouvernement de coalition CDU-FDP. Son parti remporte les élections de 2013, ce qui lui permet d'être réélue pour un troisième mandat et de former un nouveau gouvernement de coalition CDU-SPD. À partir de 2015, lors de la crise migratoire en Europe, elle connaît une chute de popularité et doit faire face à des critiques de dirigeants d'autres États européens et de son propre camp politique en raison de sa politique d'ouverture des frontières.

Elle est désignée à dix reprises femme la plus puissante du monde par le magazine Forbes et personnalité de l'année 2015 par le magazine Time. Elle est aussi largement perçue comme la personnalité politique la plus importante et la plus puissante de l'Union européenne.

„Tolerance means showing respect for other people's history, traditions, religion and cultural identity. But let there be no misunderstanding: Tolerance does not mean "anything goes". There must be zero tolerance towards all those who show no respect for the inalienable rights of the individual and who violate human rights.“

— Angela Merkel
Context: Even after the end of the Cold War we are […] faced with the task of tearing down the walls between different concepts of life, in other words the walls in people's minds that make it difficult time and again to understand one another in this world of ours. This is why the ability to show tolerance is so important. While, for us, our way of life is the best possible way, others do not necessarily feel that way. There are different ways to create peaceful coexistence. Tolerance means showing respect for other people's history, traditions, religion and cultural identity. But let there be no misunderstanding: Tolerance does not mean "anything goes". There must be zero tolerance towards all those who show no respect for the inalienable rights of the individual and who violate human rights.

„Each and every one has the same right to freedom“

— Angela Merkel
Context: Also today, the yearning for freedom may well make totalitarian regimes tremble and fall. We have followed with great interest and empathy the profound changes in North Africa and in the Arab world. Freedom is indivisible. Each and every one has the same right to freedom, be it in North Africa or Belarus, in Myanmar or Iran. Still, the struggle for freedom is demanding far too many sacrifices, and claiming far too many victims. My thoughts are with our soldiers, our policemen, and the many, many volunteers who try to help. I humbly bow to all those who risk their lives for the cause of freedom.

„History has often showed us the strength of the forces that are unleashed by the yearning for freedom.“

— Angela Merkel
Context: History has often showed us the strength of the forces that are unleashed by the yearning for freedom. It moved people to overcome their fears and openly confront dictators such as in about 22 years ago. […] The yearning for freedom cannot be contained by walls for long. It was this yearning that brought down the Iron Curtain that divided Germany and Europe, and indeed the world, into two blocs.

„Neither the chains of dictatorship nor the fetters of oppression can keep down the forces of freedom for long.“

— Angela Merkel
Context: We see that living in freedom and defending freedom are two sides of one and the same coin, for the precious gift of freedom doesn’t come naturally, but has to be fought for, nurtured, and defended time and time again. Sometimes this may seem like an endless fight against windmills. But you see, my personal experience is a quite different one. What we dare not dream of today may well become reality tomorrow. Neither the chains of dictatorship nor the fetters of oppression can keep down the forces of freedom for long.

„Without freedom the human mind is prevented from unleashing its creative force.“

— Angela Merkel
Context: Freedom is the very essence of our economy and society. Without freedom the human mind is prevented from unleashing its creative force. But what is also clear is that this freedom does not stand alone. It is freedom in responsibility and freedom to exercise responsibility.

„I understand why he has to do this; to prove he's a man... He's afraid of his own weakness. Russia has nothing, no successful politics or economy. All they have is this.“

— Angela Merkel
As quoted in [http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/12/01/quiet-german "The Quiet German"] (1 December 2014), by George Paker, The New Yorker.

„Personally I think that Austria’s unilateral decision, and then those made subsequently by Balkan countries, will obviously bring us fewer refugees, but they put Greece in a very difficult situation. If we do not manage to reach a deal with Turkey, then Greece cannot bear the weight for long. That’s why I am seeking a real European solution, that is, a solution for all 28 (E. U. members)“

— Angela Merkel
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has criticized other European countries for shutting the door to refugees and migrants hoping to reach Europe via the Balkan route, the BBC reports, quoted on Time, [http://time.com/4255038/germany-merkel-refugees-balkan-route/ "The route is the major pathway to Western Europe for refugees arriving in Greece"], March 10, 2016.
