    GDP per capita is a stupid way to decide whether a country is powerful or not. Luxembourg has a higher GDP per capita and thus it must be more powerful than Germany, right?

    They were in the British empire before they joined the commonwealth. Their police are known as the Royal Austrian Constabulary ( RAC) they wear a crown on their caps. I saw them once at Salzburg airport, and they used to operate in Northern Ireland.
    I don't think that is accurate:

    I think you mean the RUC in the Counties.

    Definitely a bad decision. Although many people do see us negatively, but almost all the time this is caused by media bias and not actual research. This is also a violation of religious freedom, and unfortunately unlike the USA Muslim ban, this one is not receiving nearly as much attention.

    Here is Austria's GDP https://www.google.ie/search?q=austr...hrome&ie=UTF-8
    note how since it joined EU in 1994, its GDP has massively increased

    There are hicks and bumps here and there but when it means preventing wars, setting standards to ensure the average man's safety, etc, etc, any fool can see (NVM apparently not) that there is a something 'so good about the European Union again'
    You need to stop drinking rhe kool aid.

    NATO, and the Cold War stopped wars on the European continent, in the post war period. Get real.

    What “standards” are you talking about? A common currency that makes Greece bankrupt? That’s a great standard. A common border that no one enforces and that lets millions of Muslim “refugees” in forever that no one wants but everyone pretends they do? That’s a great standard.

    An unrepresentative, eurocracy that no one elects and no one can remove? What a great standard.

    You Europhlie guys make me laugh. The “ European Dream” is over,

    Deal with it. And don’t you dare try and stop us leaving this corpse.

    A so called democracy
    Banning a whole religion for the barbarity of a couple of rogue fighters
    Who also kill people of their own faith
    It's not just about terrorism. European people do not want Islamic culture here. There was a poll.

    Who even wants to move to Austria anyway? Doubt muslim immigration there is even significant enough to warrant a ban since it won't have such a big impact.

    This is just about making far right people feel better. Fact is, terrorists dont bother with irrelevant countries like Austria.
    Have you been to Austria? It's beautiful. I'm very glad that they've voted in a far-right government who will preserve Austria's safety and culture.

    And btw Austria actually has a higher GDP per capita than the UK. And its capital was named the best city for quality of life

    What about those orphan/poor children crossing the mediterranean for a better life
    or those people who just want a job
    They can introduce screening tougher immigration and programs to help people assimilate into european countries
    but not Ban them it takes it to far

    If you want to give everyone in the world a better life, we will just become like the crapholes that they come from. It's not our responsibility to be the world's council house.

    My point is there's nothing to preserve since nothing is under threat. Yes im sure hitlers home country is a lovely place but its not relevant.

    Austria's newly elected Far-Right government, the APP party, has called for a total ban on Muslim immigration to Austria, as well as from high terror risk countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Good or bad news?

    There was a soldier, a Scottish soldier
    Who wandered far away and soldiered far away
    There was none bolder, with good broad shoulder
    He's fought in many a fray
    And fought and won!
    He'd seen the glory and told the story
    Of battles glorious
    And deeds victorious
    But now he's sighing, his heart is crying,
    To leave these green hills of Tyrol

    Well, it is a democracy. The issue is that people connote democracy with liberty and inclusiveness, which the word simply does not lend itself to.

    The main problem with these Muslim bans is that they put over 1 billion people under the same category and treat them like threats and terrorists when over 95% of them are likely to be normal people who you would want to be friends with (that number is a ballpark but you get the point). As an Arab girl I come from a non-religious family but we still fall under the category of Muslim in Western eyes.. I personally am atheist, and as a person i can assure you I have nothing to do with the typical Muslim/Arab stereotype and neither do most of the people i know. I have traveled a lot and I am always mistaken to be spanish or latina and people would be shocked to know I am Arab because I don't look like the image portrayed of Arabs or Muslims in the Western media. I study computer science, speak 4 languages, and I have hopes and dreams that can easily be shattered by bans like these. I really wish that people would try to see the bigger picture with such bans...
