This is not a question of co-existing with other religions, this is a question of acclimatization. Germany, Austria are little countries compared to
Amerika. I´m foreign too, but I understand the point of view of people living in Vienna, who elect FPÖ (national socialist).
Theire point is: The parts of Vienna, where the biggest fraction of residents are foreigners, are not like they were some years ago. Shops close. New
shops raise. But the foreingers who own those don´t/hardly speak german, neither they care to speak a word.
It seems like they don´t respect our culture, so why should some old guy care of theirs. Native citizens move away from those parts of city,
searching for a better place to live.
It is correct, people who elect FPÖ don´t think about the consequences this choice might have. This is a big problem and this one is growing.
So what can we do to help foreigners acting like they would act in their own home? It seems they don´t see the necessity.
Both sides are making me angry and I´m feeling helpless. The most people who elected the national socialist party are older and remember the streets
they live in at a better state. Some see a problem in degeneration of language. And this is a really serious problem! Kids have problems to learn
their own language because the standard is too low, or the disturbance to big. (not every school!!)
There are so many good things about foreigners! Like diversity, new creative ideas, food!! and knowledge. But to see them, the problems have to be
reduced to a minimum level. At last, you can´t help someone to be a part of the community as long he doesn´t want to, or doesn´t need to.
I had to learn german at the age of 9, I was not very enthusiastic about that. My parents insisted on that and learnd a new language at age of 30 and
learn it still. This is not the fault of kids but their parents, who don´t care, because they know that the son or daughter will have a job at a
shop, where they can speak their own language.
