    Germany needs migrants, merkel isn't letting them in out of the kindness of her heart. So it's no surprise that most Germans still support the immigration policy, its a pragmatic rather than philanthropic policy.

    I thought we had consigned nazism to the history books where it belongs? This is nothing but a step backwards into darkness again.
    We are repeating the history books. In the 1920s there were pogroms in Russia that created a huge refugee/migrant crisis in Europe as the Jews were expelled. Coudenhove-Kalergi's Pan-Europa argued for opening the borders to people who would be of such huge benefit to Europe and Germany. The media were full of tales of woe. The Weimar Republic let vast numbers enter Germany. There were refugee encampments outside major German Cities. An obscure far left party, the National Socialists, so far left that they have become known as the far right, made minor gains in elections and then were unexpectedly swept to power.

    Of course, the great thing about the Jews was that they were peaceful and it is puzzling why they became so hated in Germany. The Establishment in Europe would surely never repeat the mistakes of history, especially given that Islamic migrants are vulnerable to the extremists in their midst.

    They're not a far-right party, their most extreme policy is outlawing circumcision and ritual slaughter.

    Not at lot we can do about your pee-pee now bear.


    It's very wrong to circumcise a baby for no medical reason, they should have the choice to consent to it at the age of 18 if culture or religion demands it, but there has to be respect for the autonomy of the baby, who is every bit a human being.

    Nope. I'll choose whether to leave or not on my own.

    If any culture and ethnic group should be preserved, it is the German people.

    Maybe the Japanese too.

    They are the same sort of migrants that fled to America. The Irish fled the Potato famine in the 19th century, Jews fled persecution in the 19th and 20th century, Italians fled poverty in the early 20th century and Eastern Europeans fled war in the mid 20th century.

    The level of qualification required to find a job in the USA in the 19th century and until the 1970s was not the same as in Germany today. Moreover, the immigrants you mention belonged to the broad same western culture; they also spoke or rapidly learnt English.

    The million of "refugees" that have entered Germany are uneducated - even if they are, it's nothing comparable to German standards - and don't speak a word of German. Some people are trying to make us believe that these refugees are going to spontaneously replace retiring engineers in BMW factories. It's a very silly argument.

    Exactly. The Economist has rigorously defended Merkel's open-door policy but has provided very little in the way of making sure these people do not end up being a burden on the German economy.

    Fact is that Germany needs migrants but not just any migrant.

    It's an obvious reaction to a chancellor who has absolutely lost it. Letting in over 1 million people will change Germany in such a big way, it should be put to a referendum. It's such a big change, equivalent in size to the EU ref.
