Other comments made by Nirenstein this past week addressed remarks made by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said that Germany's multicultural approach to immigration "has failed, utterly failed," and that in the future, immigrants should be expected to integrate into German culture.
"The point is that certain cultures very often have no intention of mixing in with ours, despite our actions and best intentions," said Nirenstein in response. "Paris has become a city in which more than 200,000 people live in families where polygamy is common practice. In Italy 30,000 women have been subjected to genital mutilation and Islamic courts—ninety-odd in London alone—inflict sentences that are inconceivable."
She pointed out that despite the fact that immigrants should have freedom of rights because of democracy, "they have other rules, not the ones of democracy. In Germany, Chancellor Merkel's homeland, a Berlin lawyer was beaten along with her Muslim client who wanted a divorce; she was also attacked in the subway and was forced to close her practice. Again in Germany, Mozart's opera, Idomeneo, was cancelled following Islamic threats. By pure luck, the editor-in-chief of Die Welt, Roger Köppel, blocked the hand of a young Muslim who was about to stab him in his office. In Germany, England and France, it is no longer possible to trace the "missing girls" who become slaves following arranged marriages. Giulio Meotti writes that, in Stockholm, the latest fashion is a T-shirt worn by young Muslim on which is written: 'In 2030 we will take over'. Just some incidents.
