No. I'm from America and I twisted nothing. This is what you said:
You are completely twisting my proposals to suit your argument, where are from anyway?
Sounds like abandoning allies to me.
We need to disregard being ally's with Saudi Arabia, and threaten forced regime change if they do not stop sponsoring terrorism and extremism, we also need to stop supporting elements of both sides in a clandestine war based on strategic positioning.
Like I said, tell your government your plans. Unless you want to do it yourself, of course.
Well thank you for you declaration we all know it's bad, that's the point that's why you become engaged and try to make a difference instead of being a bull in a china cabinet, shooting down proposals when you have none yourself.
So yes that is self important, you haven't an egg in the basket, so when you decide you want to define yourself, then we can have a coherent argument, otherwise you need to quiet down and let those who actually have solutions aka the adults work this one out.

We have a lot of Muslims in moving into my neighborhood. We have mosques popping up all over the place. I never gave it much thought because we have so many immigrants in America. The other day as I was driving down the street I had my car window open. A 5 year old kid yelled infidel at me as I was passing by. I was kind of in shock over it. The next day as I'm driving down the street the kid comes running down the drive way full steam and tossed a rock at my car. He missed his mark.
Most of the Muslims I meet seem to be polite and nice to your face but it makes me wonder what is there true motive? What are they teaching their kids? I'm kind of on guard over this and don't know what to think. We welcomed you into our country and this is what we receive?

These incidents are more prevalent than just "a few bad apples among 1.5 billion". I'm so tired of hearing that defense. It's not all of course, but definitely the majority.
The current average time from application to decision is 5.3 months, according to the German government.
If granted refugee status, a residence permit for three years will be granted. After this time a permanent residence permit can be applied for.
Who gets rejected?
Germany designates all EU states plus Ghana, Senegal, Serbia, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina as "safe countries of origin" - which means that asylum claims from nationals of these countries are likely to be rejected.
On 7 September the government announced that Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro would be added to this list.
Manfred Schmidt, President of BAMF, told Der Spiegel in August that 40% of all asylum seekers in Germany came from the Balkans, and their claims were likely to be unsuccessful.
