As long ago as 2010 Angela Merkel had known that Muslims were not integrating into German society so why she'd encourage millions more Muslims to come to Germany in 2015 is a mystery.
The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has courted growing anti-immigrant opinion in Germany by claiming the country's attempts to create a multicultural society have "utterly failed". Speaking to a meeting of young members of her Christian Democratic Union party, Merkel said the idea of people from different cultural backgrounds living happily "side by side" did not work. She said the onus was on immigrants to do more to integrate into German society. "This [multicultural] approach has failed, utterly failed," Merkel told the meeting in Potsdam, west of Berlin, yesterday.

"Multiculturalism leads to parallel societies and therefore remains a 'life lie' … The challenge is immense … We want and we will reduce the number of refugees noticeably."

"Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream. We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values."
French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared Thursday in a nationally televised debate that multiculturalism was a "failure," warning that such a concept fostered extremism.
"We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him," Sarkozy said. The French leader said that while it's important to respect cultural differences, France should be a place with a national community - not a place where different cultural communities just coexist. "Our Muslim compatriots must be able to practice their religion, as any citizen can," Sarkozy said. "But we in France do not want people to pray in an ostentatious way in the street." "'If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community," he continued. "And if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France".
What has Muslim immigration and multiculturalism given to Europe? The short answer: rape, terrorism, anti-semitism and fear and anger.
Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker said that women should adopt a “code of conduct” to prevent future assaults following the sexual attacks on German on women 1000 MUslim men on New Year’s eve. “It is important to prevent such incidents from ever happening again,” said Mayor Reker, as reported in German by RP Online. “We have heard by now that they [the attacks] have occurred in other cities. This of course is not comforting to us.” The idea that Muslim men should obey the law doesn't seem to have occurred to her.
