Merkel says German multicultural society has failed

Maybe in a couple years we can see the same trend emerging here..............



BBC News - Merkel says German multicultural society has failed

The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel: "lmmigrants should learn to speak German"

Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.

She said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate - including learning German.

The comments come amid rising anti-immigration feeling in Germany.

A recent survey suggested more than 30% of people believed the country was "overrun by foreigners".

^^^I've been feeling this way since 1492

The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for its social benefits.

How old are you???

Seriously though, I thought for a long time that if you live here, speak and learn the language. Maybe I'm a bit hardnose, but I have a hard time seeing states and the government print lots of documents in other languages.
