There are extremes on both sides, and I can see both of their arguments.
On one hand, I understand the fears of seeing the rise of radical nationalism.
On the other, when you have a governing body over your country dictating how many migrants you are going to take in, I can understand push back. That push back is not always a disdain of other cultures or people, but sometimes it's just the simple fact of trying to have economy stability. Bringing in people just for the sake of humanitarianism doesn't always work out just because you have the right intentions. If you don't have jobs to offer to help them assimilate and find stability, sometimes that move can be just as hopeless as where you left. It's better if we find a balance, relocate refugees ect. based off of who can help them get on their feet the fastest.
Sometimes I think the power struggle in opposing beliefs is what creates the extremes. If neither side is willing to compromise, then you will get more extreme push back from both sides. I think that is one source of the growing trend of radical nationalism, something history has shown us before. When you dictate to a country what they are to do, many times they will revolt in ways and have a national movement to push back.
Yeah you keep hiding behind your claim to sovereignty, in a civilized world one does not defend this!!

You clearly have absolutely no idea, no knowledge, no understanding, no wisdom concerning what Islam (not the normal people trapped by its precepts within the prison of death that it constitutes) actually is, does, represents & intends to the world of humanity at large.
What a delightful culture! Sure,we should allow adherents of that culture ('total-life-enslavement-indoctrination-into-the-ways-of-evil' mind kontrolle system) to enter our nations by force or guile, creating a channel by which slightly more extreme agents forming the hardcore of that system (feared, tolerated, quietly supported by the remainder of the body-politik of Islam) can enter & set up sleeper cells which ultimately may be used to bomb a stadium full of little girls, killing & maiming & traumatising them in the most appalling ways.
