No. Do you believe Europe does not exist?
Yes, they are responsible for many damages, even for multiculti and immigration damage, because they are the ones who make laws. I dont blame immigrants - they simply follow the path of least resistance, and if I was an immigrant, I would porbably do the same. I blame politicians too.
Yes, they are the ones responsible for immigration problems and failure of multi-culti.
No, its simple economy and statistics. Ratio of educated people above immigrants is lower than in general populace of Europe, therefore the net effect of immigration is lowering average education level, which is national socioeconomic suicide in current conditions - we already have excess number of underqualified people on the job market, even without the immigrants. More uneployment, falling of price of underqualified work, strain on social system.. You name it. I know it may sound harsh for the immigrants, but thats what logic and reality says - net effect of immigration on domestic economy and society is negative.

The germans should send all useless immigrants back to their home countries,
step out of the EU, so they become independent again and won't be forced to bail out parasitic countries anymore,
and then build up a new strong and glorious world leading nation again, in a peaceful way as a spiritualy evolved nation.
The germans (still) got the potential for that, but they need to rely and focus primarily on themelfs and on their own values in regards to their national matters.

There is a fundamental obstacle to a successful multicultural society in any Western country.
And it is simply inequality.
Good for Frau Merkel for actually having enough guts to admit what everyone, including myself, are thinking. I know I will get a lot of flak for this, but it's true. The impossible concept of "multiculture" is something that is the root at many violent occurences.
Nor does it mean they can force upon others their former country's laws and traditions simply because they refuse and or are too lazy to adapt.

Well how much of an effort did th Germans make to have multiculturalism? I know that Britain has tried very hard and is a good example of how ell it can work. It does not mean that there are not a few idiots but they are hell bent on trouble. as a one-time immigrant I now how hard I tried to fit in and how I was blocked by a handfull of biggots but britain is a great place to live for decenthardworking people who wish to obey the laws of the land!

In every country in Europe, we have this debate - is Islam welcome? Can Islam be allowed to co-exist with other religions or cultural dispositions?
To hear it coming from Germany, once again, is just dumb-founding.
We cannot allow the Jewish question to become the Islamic question - let alone the Islamic Solution.
Islam should be welcome wherever and whenever. It should be allowed to co-exist and cohabit in any given free and democratic society.
