I know the collision of old traditions and immigrant communities has been difficult for many parts of Europe. But I still find what German Chancellor Angela Merkel had to say today to be beyond shocking. Via The Sun:

She said: “This multicultural approach, saying that we simply live side by side and live happily with each other, has utterly failed.

“We feel tied to Christian values. Those who don’t accept them don’t have a place here.”

Her outspoken comments come amid a Europe-wide debate about immigration - and fears that failure to integrate Muslims was fuelling terrorism.

True, but Germany doesn’t have the best record when it comes to zealously opposing those who don’t share its “Christian values.”
