Well this has got to be the joke of the week post if this is true - An increasing number of public canteens, child daycare centres and schools have stopped serving sausages, bacon and ham over religious considerations - if you don't want to eat pork thats up to the individual concerned and your choice, why make others suffer. Being the consumption of pork is part of German culture.

German sausages are part of the country’s culture. At Oktoberfest in Munich, the largest beer festival in the world - sausages are served alongside steins of beer.

Thaiga I read that in the DX and it is bizarre. How can a Nation state the expectation that 'Immigrants' need to assimilate and then pander to such nonsense ?
Sorry Muslims - that's tough - if you don't like to see the sausages - don't look !
And be happy to enjoy the hospitality of Germany.
The other big story on this theme in Germany is the behaviour of Immigrants - the incidents in Cologne on New Year's Eve were truly disgusting and disgraceful, showing no respect whatsoever, for anyone. Now I read that swimming pools are being segregated between men and women in some areas in Germany after a number of incidents of sexual assault. Absolutely shocking.
I know these Guys may not have much of a life in Germany (yet) but presumably it is better than where they came from AND such disrespect will only make life worse for them.
I think Muslims around the World will deplore this appalling attitude shown by their Brothers. It would be interesting to see some more KF reactions to this - JF ?

Hi JF. Are you saying these reports are not true then ?
The 'sausage' story is based on comments from Daniel Gunther of Angela Merkel's CDU Party. The 'Cologne and 'swimming pool' stories have been widely reported in the international Press  - but you are right ..... don't believe everything you read in the Media, anywhere.
However these reports seems well founded enough. :salute

Journalists are famous for copying from each other. Bad luck, if they copied something that was just opposite of what has been said in reality. Find a credible translator to tell you the issue of those articles:

http://www.welt.de/politik/deutschland/article152864924/Schweinefleisch-Konsum-gehoert-zu-unserer-Tradition.html

http://www.welt.de/politik/deutschland/article152803416/Nord-CDU-fordert-Schweinefleisch-in-Kantinen.html

BTW, I'm not a fan of Merkel and consorts! But the "pork" discussion is just ridiculous.

The swimming pool discussion is also exaggerated. There are no more refugees misbehaving in Germany than natives or visitors from the British island.

A sad fact is that overall morals have declined and crime has increased. That is mainly a result of "thinning" public services. When before everybody was complaining about too much tax money spent on public services, now they find that the services are still needed. But it's ALWAYS easier to blame it on somebody else! That crime in Cologne increased is a fact. It didn't start with refugees. Those gangs have been operating around the train station for a long time without the cops minding them much. Lack of personnel, they say.

Worst is the Germans' sickness of politics. Last Sunday there were local elections with quite a lot of "protest votes" going to extreme right politicians. It's Merkel's own fault, if she didn't care for the "small man", who votes or not votes, or tries to kick her by voting the extreme right.

Well thanks Thaiga.
'Real thing TV' is not exactly 'Die Welt' or 'Der Spiegel' but point made.
Germany has a serious problem with all these Immigrants and so does Mrs Merkel !
Good luck to them - I have every sympathy.

JF are you suggesting that the New Year's Eve problems in Cologne were not due to Immigrants ? All reports suggested otherwise.

They were immigrants from North Africa, who already stayed a long time in the country. Not a problem that came up with the recent wave of refugees. Many of those were ordered to leave the country before, were denied asylum, but their countries did not take them back. So they "survived as outcasts" around Cologne's train station, maybe hoping to get a nice warm cell and regular meals.

Thanks JF. Obviously you have the inside track on this.
But the Immigrants, whenever and wherever they came from, are a major problem.
Of course it's great to see Germany making such fantastic efforts.
When I said I have sympathy, (earlier), I meant for Germany and for Mrs Merkel who have shown such generosity, even though maybe misguided.
HOW can this be sorted out now ? For Germany ? For Europe ?
Not to forget the Immigrants, ousted from their homes and culture.
Insoluble I fear.

There have been lots of migrations in history. The biggest was to the US. And the migrants made it a big nation! Why did they go there? To be free from king and pope! I can imagine that those migrants now will also serve the advancement of society somehow. Just some right radicals use them for their own purpose of getting power.

Well JF one has to applaud your kindly view of the problem. However there is massive concern about the present situation and what might happen this year and before the exodus from Syria, Somalia and Afghanistan etc. is stemmed.
All credit to Germany who have successfully absorbed vast numbers of Turks in recent decades and also come through reunification with 17 million East Germans.
I hope it goes well.

Johnnie F and Roger.  All of us have different opinions on what is happening around the world and what are the root causes of this migration.  I would very much love to debate you on your, what I would refer to, as  (rose coloured glasses) of present and past events re: immigration.  I am steadfastly against your opinions on immigration as spelled out in your recent posts.
Kindest Regards

rose coloured glasses,there must be a sale on ::)

the same story was made up in denmark

In an apparent bid to warn about the dangers of mass immigration and multiculturalism, Inger Støjberg told a false story about a daycare banning pork from kids’ lunches.

Aussie - Re. Germany's Immigration issues - I was suggesting to JF that Germany has a big problem but JF was rather more sanguine about it all.
As you disagree with both of us - let us have your views please.
And Thaiga too, my own glasses were hardly rose-coloured.
Come on Aussie.

For starters,  The GDR was unified on 3 October 1990 with Germany making one country.  There was no mass migration.  All spoke the same language and were "cut of the same cloth.

Hi Aussie.
Yes re. E. Germany you are correct of course but I was just noting the point as something undeniably achieved by the now unified Germany. It is true that vast numbers of Turkish immigrants have come to Germany in recent decades.
You being 'steadfastly against' other posts, it would be good to know what you feel yourself about the current Immigration panics in the EU countries ?

Roger.  This is an enormous subject to debate over on this forum.  This influx of illegal immigrants to Europe will be the final nail in the coffin for those nations wishing to be self governing.  My off the cuff response is to send all the immigrants to the USA.  This where the the attacking of sovereign nations and multiple regime change was planed, hatched and carried out with the aid of the US and its lackeys.  You reap what you sow.

Hey Aussie thanks.
Can see where you are coming from and I can identify with some of it.
Immigration is a massive problem for the EU and may cause the EU to disintegrate before the UK gets the chance to leave ! ATB

Sowhat. I'm not sure how to take that ? Just discussing it.
My honest belief is that Germany, the EU and the UK have a major problem with Immigration which persists and looks without a solution atm.
What do you think ? ATB

no insults there, i was admiring the way you was popping along with the replies,entertaining.

sowhat when you say no one is on the front line, do you mean the opposing forces killing one another, the innocent civilians being slaughtered, the innocents on boats or walking in their millions to escape the carnage in the Middle East, the utter turmoil in Europe over the horde advancing to their countries, the innocents starving in refugee camps.  I believe there is a crisis and you of course can deny such a crisis exists and believe what you want to.  May I ask you, please tell me what is the crisis,if you believe there is one and who (What country) is the chief engineer of such a crisis if it does exist?

read the post before you mouth off.

when i say no one is on the front line, i mean none of our members posting are not there on the front line with the refugees, to what is happening today. we only know what we read. what i have noticed with your posts when you are challenged you say you neither have the time and it would take forever to explain :-X
you say (I believe there is a crisis and you of course can deny such a crisis exists) where did i post that :uhm

i find you rude and arrogant and i don't possess to know much about the refugees. like i said. the Refugee crisis,i know nothing.

sowhat I'm not surprised by your comments.  Lets tackle what you said.
Your comments in red.
read the post before you mouth off.

1.when i say no one is on the front line, i mean none of our members posting are not there on the front line with the refugees, to what is happening today.
(Thanks for explaining this, too bad you didn't say so in your original post.) (By the way determining that no one on this forum has not been on the front line is not true.)

2.( I asked you to, please tell me what is the crisis, if you believe there is one and who (What country) is the chief engineer of such a crisis if it does exist?)
(What I got back from you was petty childish abuse and name calling.)


3. we only know what we read.
(Perhaps beside knowing only what we read, being eyewitness to some tragic events must qualify one to have an opinion not based entirely on newspapers and the MSM.)


4. like i said. the Refugee crisis,i know nothing.
As for finding entertainment value on this serious subject you might consider withdrawing your comments about the migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East until such times as you know something about the subject.

5.you say (I believe there is a crisis and you of course can deny such a crisis exists) where did i post that 
(You didn't post this I did and went on to ask you for your opinion.)


6. i find you rude and arrogant and i don't possess to know much about the refugees. like i said. the Refugee crisis,i know nothing.

Thank you for such courteous words.
Regards
