The Swiss also seem to have taken a rational approach.
I don't care.Assigning blame or guilt doesn't interest me in the least.
I'm not saying that Germany should adopt Russia's political structure. I'm saying that Germany (and the rest of Europe) should make their countries less welcoming to migrants. This could be done without curtailing the generous benefits that current citizens enjoy. In fact, if Western Europe doesn't stop the influx of immigration, they will have to change their benefits paradigm, because migrants will overload an already stressed welfare system.
Russia has a long history of conflict between ethnic Slavic Russians and Asian Muslims. There were tensions in the Muslim republics during the days of the USSR, and those tensions have not gone away.Perhaps reading this article in the NYT will be a good start in helping you become a bit more familiar with Russian attitudes towards Islam.http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/02/world/russia-sees-a-threat-in-its-converts-to-islam.html?_r=0
All the hand wringing about how to solve the massive immigration flood into Europe reminds me of this video: Just replace "Don't go in the pool" with "Control the borders." The answer is so obvious, but somehow folks refuse to acknowledge it. As for why migrants aren't headed for Russia, you are not correct that it isn't "geographically feasible." The path through Russia is a common route to get into...
Russia has managed to avoid a huge influx of migrants. They have border security, and they don't entice migrants with a generous benefits buffet for anyone who makes it to their country. The other Eastern European countries are following suit. Controlling one's borders is hardly "extreme." Border control is one of the basic characteristics of a sovereign state. Not wanting to provide generous benefits to people who enter your country illegally is hardly "extreme." ...
Europe is not equipped to absorb these refugees. The only thing that Europe will accomplish by bringing in millions of refugees is that Europe will import the problems that led to the instability. The "global community" has no obligation to commit cultural and economic suicide by welcoming millions of backward third world Muslims. The countries of Eastern Europe have figured this out. Sweden and Germany hopefully will figure it out before it's too late.
No need for creativity here. The solution is simple and obvious.
Building fences isn't ignoring the problem. Building fences is the solution to the problem.The EU has a problem because it has advertised that migrants are welcome. They are inundated now because of the lack of fences.Build fences, and deport migrants, and the problem is solved.
This is pretty funny: “There is a 360-degree, not 180-degree, difference between the Islam we defend and what Daesh has on its mind,” he said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State. http://foreignpolicy.com/2015/10/15/turkish-prime-minister-there-is-a-360-degree-difference-between-turkish-islam-and-isis/
