Merkel: «A abordagem multicultural da Alemanha falhou rotundamente»

Merkel diz o óbvio: permitir que pessoas de culturas radicalmente opostas à ocidental vivam entre nós sem adoptar as nossas leis e os nossos costumes, mantendo os seus, muitas vezes em flagrante violação dos do país de acolhimento, demonstrou ser um erro.
De lamentar apenas que estas palavras surjam aparentemente como reacção a pressões provenientes do interior do seu partido, e não de uma genuína preocupação com a questão - embora seja de saudar que no interior da Christlich Demokratische Union Deutschlands (CDU) a questão da islamização da Alemanha tenha adquirido peso suficiente para a levar a pronunciar-se.
Multicultural society has failed, says Chancellor Merkel
Germany's attempts to create a multicultural society have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel has said, urging immigrants to do more to integrate, including learning to speak German.

REUTERS - Germany’s attempt to create a multicultural society has “utterly failed”, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday, adding fuel to a debate over immigration and Islam polarising her conservative camp.
Speaking to a meeting of young members of her Christian Democrats (CDU), Merkel said allowing people of different cultural backgrounds to live side by side without integrating had not worked in a country that is home to some four million Muslims.
“This (multicultural) approach has failed, utterly failed,” Merkel told the meeting in Potsdam, south of Berlin.
Merkel faces pressure from within her CDU to take a tougher line on immigrants who don’t show a willingness to adapt to German society and her comments appeared intended to pacify her critics.
She said too little had been required of immigrants in the past and repeated her usual line that they should learn German in order to get by in school and have opportunities on the labour market.
The debate over foreigners in Germany has shifted since former central banker Thilo Sarrazin published a book accusing Muslim immigrants of lowering the intelligence of German society.
Sarrazin was censured for his views and dismissed from the Bundesbank, but his book proved highly popular and polls showed a majority of Germans agreed with the thrust of his arguments.
Merkel has tried to accommodate both sides of the debate, talking tough on integration but also telling Germans that they must accept that mosques have become part of their landscape.
She said on Saturday that the education of unemployed Germans should take priority over recruiting workers from abroad, while noting Germany could not get by without skilled foreign workers.
