On Sunday, the big German newspaper Bild posted an interview with Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Here the newspaper notes that the vast majority of asylum seekers flowing into Germany come from the Muslim world. Does Merkel see any threat from Islam in regard to this?
"That is something nobody should fear. Germany is and will be the constitution, the social market economy, the religion and freedom of expression. We make it clear from day one for the people who come here: Here the laws and rules for living together apply, as they must follow. Only in this way Germany can be the place where they find protection."
Merkel adds that asylum seekers must "accept that women and men have the same rights in Germany".
Apparently Merkel thinks that if these things are just being said to asylum seekers, there will be no problems.
As if some instructive words could eliminate the huge differences in culture and social community which for many years have created major conflicts in European societies in the wake of mass immigration.
For decades, European governments have said the same thing that Merkel now says - that you just have to explain to Muslim refugees and immigrants that they should comply with national rules.
In these decades, Muslim parallel societies have only grown bigger and stronger. The integration has failed. And there is a growing radicalization of Muslims in Europe.
But what do Merkel know? She is protected by bodyguards, sits in the back of bulletproof cars, with a dedicated driver. She never has to face the increasing daily violence that ordinary Germans have to deal with.
It is thus safe to say that she is not speaking from experience, being totally ignorant of the reality outside her bubble.
