I am quite surprised by Merke's comments. So no Box, probably we can still enjoy schweine snitzel for a very long time in Muenchen.

My personal discussion with the citizen 2 years ago (a teacher, a tour guide, and a chef) gave me an impression that the Germans are just that optimistic of showing the world how multikulturelle looks. Heck, one pastry chef at the Hauptbanhof probably mistook me for a refugee w my broken German and soaked clothing. He denied my payment for the 1/2 price croissants. That left quite an impression.


POTSDAM, Germany (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 polarizing 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.

FF - Frau Merkel’s attempt at multiculturalism has undoubtedly failed but we should also note that she made these comments back in 2010.

If that is the case, why hasn't Merkel done anything to reverse the problem?
