Born in Belgium to a large Moroccan family, Karima was forced to wear the veil from the time
 
she was nine. "They ended up sewing it to my hair," she confides. Treated like a maid by her
 
family, she was cloistered, mistreated and forcibly married in Morocco; an existence she
 
managed to escape from, and recount in her autobiography. She says she wrote her story
 
for the girls and women who face the same ordeals.

exactly what is going on here: this is just one part of the 57-government Organization

Prehaps it hasn't been noticed that the the Islamic ah, Republic of Iran believes that she has cracked that particular dificulty and that her form of ah, democracy is fully comprehensible with the

Islamic republic of Iran's version of Islam, the All Important Sharia Law, and the shiite islamic tradition.  I think this is again somthing we should welcome, and should discuss this very year...

Danger...    when   ONE   culture in the MULTIculture    ...... Takes Over....
.......................................................................................................................................
 
 
 
For centuries the people of europe have retained seperate states of various cultural flavors,
 
creating the joy of travel through Europe.
 
 
Imagine any one of our states...  being overtaken in a mere 40 yrs ... by Islam?

We are not talking about an unusual food or a different accent.

We are talking about a new form of society/politics/Law   setting up shop within....

A state within a state.

Talk about standing out like a sore thumb...  a screaming, demanding of it's rights sore thumb.

Not willing to "fit in"

Realizing your "State" will never be the same again...

Not unusual to feel German Chancellor Angela Merkel's pain....

That the stark realization of attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany
 
has "utterly failed"

Even so she says, demand for integration is a key task... and it must be a German trademark
 
to be a country that gives people there an opportunity.
 
Very generous.

So Look for Germany to expect integration of the 2 out of 3 children under 5.
 
Expected to speak German and fit into the culture.

(Allegiance-  a duty of fidelity said to be owed by a subject or a citizen to his/her state )

So, bring out secular Santa, Valentines Day, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, something Patriotic,

something like Thanksgiving, Sports Teams,
 
AND
 
(I pledge allegiance to The German Flag )

Hey, it works in the USA.
 
 
 

Note in Yellow, the percieved combined circumstancial errors of government, that lead to the
dangerous cultural imbalance, ratio of native Germans to immigrants.
 
 
 
 

Frederick The Great  :/       ...even if Turks and heathens came ...
 
...............................................................................................................................................................
 
 
wikipedia
 
In 1740 Frederick The Great stated (in the context of affirming the toleration of Catholics) that "All religions are just as good as each other, as long as the people who practice them are honest, and even if Turks and heathens came and wanted to populate this country, then we would build mosques and temples for them".[15]

In practice, already the first contingent of Turkish guardsmen had been given the use of a prayer room on Sundays. It soon became necessary to establish a Turkish/Muslim cemetery in Berlin, in which a mosque was finally built in 1866.[16]
 

Diplomatic relations were established between Berlin and Constantinople (today's Istanbul) in the 18th century, and by the 19th century trading treaties were set up between the two cities. These developments encouraged the crossover of citizens between the Ottoman and German states.[17]
 
As a consequence to these developments, the Turkish community in Germany, and particularly in Berlin, grew significantly in the years before the First World War.[18]
 
 

Immigration to Germany
.............................................
 
The large-scale of immigration of Turkish workers from the beginning of the 1960s
 
was on the one hand, due to the high population growth and mass unemployment
 
within Turkey, and on the other, due to the demand for labour in north-west Europe.[20]

 
 
...In 1961, the construction of the Berlin Wall exacerbated West Germany’s labour crisis by restricting the flow of immigrants from East Germany, and that same year Turkey's first recruitment agreement was signed.[23]
 
Pressure from German employers in 1962 and 1963 played a key role in ending the two-year limit on the period for which Turkish workers were permitted to stay in West Germany.[24]
 
In 1961, a total of 7,116 Turks migrated to Germany to become workers.[25]
 
The recruitment treaty in 1961 made Germany the prime host country for Turkish guest workers ...
 
[edit] Family reunification

...between 1974–1988, the number of Turks in Germany nearly doubled, acquiring a normalised sex ratio and a much younger age profile than the German population because of the larger numbers of children per family.
 
 
By 1987, 21% of ethnic Germans were under the age of 21, compared to 42% of the Turks in Germany.[30]
 
 
...granted most work visas to women.

This was in part because labour shortages continued in low paying, low-status service jobs such as electronics, textiles, and garment work; and in part to further the goal of family reunification.[31]
 

... increasing numbers of second-generation Turks have opted for German citizenship and are becoming more involved in the political process.[35]
