German People Echo American Sentiment – Too Many Immigrants in the Country Not a Good Thing

Germany like the U.S and other super-powers are facing economic hard-times and are feeling burdened by immigrants in the country.  30 percent of Germans feel the country is “overrun by foreigners” and many want to restrict the practice of Islam and opine that Jews had “too much influence.”

Now the German government itself is declaring multiculturalism a failure since it has resulted in many immigrants not learning the German language and not fully integrating into German society. 

This weekend German Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke to a conservative faction of the country and addressed the issue stating “The multicultural approach…has failed, and failed absolutely.”  She does not see it possible for different cultural groups to coexist separately.  Of the 7 million immigrants in Germany over 50 percent are Muslim.
