Migration is good, but Countries which Welcome Problematic Migrants must be careful

by DR. SAMI ALRABAA June 24, 2015

Migration is an essential part of human history. It has been enriching politically, culturally and economically. But when you look closely and practically at migration in Western Europe these days, you will find out that it is impacting host countries negatively.

If you look at migrants in countries like Germany, Britain, France, Holland and Denmark, you realize that the majority of these migrants are Muslims and hardly educated.

Let's check out migration in Germany. All in all, Germany has got around 18 million people who are not native Germans. They originally come from Turkey, and most recently from Eastern Europe; Poland, Romania, Kosovo, Albania, Bosnia, Ukraine and Russia.

Some migrants were born in Germany, but all in all, the majority of them are not integrated in the German society. They learn first of all the language of their parents and grandparents. They also stick to the culture of their ancestors. They largely live in their own cultural communities. In other words, they do not try to integrate in the societies which welcomed them as migrants.

According to a study by Bielefeld University which is banned from being published for political reasons, it is mostly migrants who do not stick to normal traffic rules, for example. The majority of migrants are inconsiderate and cause most traffic accidents.

Helmut, a member of the research team, who doesn't want to be identified, says, "Big neighbourhoods in German towns are inhabited almost exclusively by migrants, especially Turks, Kurds, and Arabs. The buildings where these people live look shabby. Rubbish is everywhere."

The majority of migrants, their families and parents live on social benefits, called in Germany Harz V. However, the majority of migrants from Eastern Europe do that less.

18 million migrants living in Germany, which has in total about 80 million people, is relatively a huge number and will certainly change the culture of this country drastically.

In general, Germans are disciplined and diligent people, particularly in terms of cleanliness, punctuality, common sense, and fairness. And that is why Germany has been so successful, in particular after the II World War.

For the majority of Germans, it is not enough to have a clean home, but also a clean neighbourhood. They are convinced that it is healthier and more aesthetic.

This reminds me of what I often saw in Egypt, in Cairo, for example. People clean their flats or houses but rubbish and litter are every where in front of their houses! Rubbish and disorder elsewhere is none of their business!

Now, we humans inherit all kinds of things from our parents, whether we like it or not: not only instincts, abilities and weaknesses but also certain behaviour patterns, which we are exposed to in our childhood.

Social psychological studies prove, for instance, that people everywhere grow up loving the music, food and manners, etc. which their parents also love, experience and practise.

If we learn as kids and teens that our parents are untidy we also become later untidy. If our parents lie and are unreliable, we also do the same more or less for the rest of our life.

Certainly if you have individual migrants who live in a migrant-dominated majority of their own culture, the minority of migrants will be, by hook or crook, subjected to integrate in the culture of their ancestors and not in the culture of their host society.

If you have whole communities of migrants, whole neighbourhoods of migrants who do not want to integrate in their host community, who are untidy, inconsiderate and break the law wherever and whenever they can, then it would be extremely hard to integrate such people. They sit around, do nothing, break commonsense rules and breed people like their ilk.  

A Syrian refugee told me here in Germany that as they were talking to a Syrian Muslim woman wearing a head scarf (hijab), who also managed to flee the civil war in Syria and was rescued with her five children by a German ship and brought safely to Germany, she said "We should not be thankful to Germany and the Germans, we should be grateful to Allah and the Prophet Mohammed!!!!"

This woman and her five kids are surely a ticking time bomb in the German society.

In the long run, I don't know, maybe in 50 or 100 years, history books would remember Germany and tell how it was. People would say, "Oh, when Germany was truly German, that was another society. The Germany of today has unfortunately been degraded to one of those third world countries."

By the way, the same applies to the UK, France, Holland and Denmark, countries which are now having big numbers of migrants from Muslim and East European countries.

The study of Bielefeld University which was mentioned earlier did also research handcrafts in Germany. The study found out that the majority of German handcrafts are better than their East European counterparts. They are rather more expensive but more reliable.

In general, East Europeans who used to live under communism have a certain mindset. They expect the state to do everything for them. They are less constructive and creative than their West European counterparts. In addition, they are less sophisticated and often impolite. 

On the other hand, British people who live and work for British army facilities in Germany, for instance, in Bielefeld and in neighbouring towns are usually decent, sophisticated and very polite. You feel that in the daily traffic. They stick to all traffic rules.

The Danish minority in Northern Germany live also harmoniously with their German co-citizens.

In Germany there are approximately 10 million Muslims. The majority of them are still peaceful! But how long still?!

I did my own investigation and found out that the majority of mosques and Muslim organizations in Germany get huge sums of money from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates.

The Imams in mosques in Germany (thousands of them) are doing "a very good job!" They preach hatred against the "unIslamic" German culture every Friday. And they incite truly Muslim believers to "get rid of this heretic culture by all means, as our ancestors did under the leadership of our Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him!" as an Imam in Herford put it. 

Most recently, the Constitutional Court in Germany ruled that Muslim school teachers are allowed to wear a Hijab (head scarf) at school! This is certainly the beginning of Islamising the German society. Who knows, sometime later, it might become a law, obliging all women, of any faith to wear the Hijab!

If you mention the above facts or some of them in Germany, then you get severely attacked by media corrupt, dogmatic men and women who would label you as "right-winger".

Yet, I'm pretty sure that such "right-wingers" will prove to have predicted the negative implications of today's migration policy at least across Northern Europe.
