A fence, turn them back in the Mediterranean, do what is necessary to stop illegal immigration.

A recent article say a immigrant boat captain as saying "I am fulfilling the will of God" is scary.

The fence may be part of the solution and allow border controls to filter out the genuine refugees from Syria to give them temporary asylum or preferably support them in the Middle East until the conflict ceases. It might just be the "final solution" (no historical reference implied) to the paralysis that has engulfed the EU. As for the Daily Mail, a rag, but it tackles politically incorrect issues and if it is only 10% right then it provides some diversity of opinion from the Guardian/BBC group think.

The complexities of a million or more people, almost none of whom speak German, trying to find a place in German society, let alone in the country’s rigidly structured workplace. Sure, well-educated engineers, doctors and economists are coming. But there are also plenty of illiterate people, stunned by their new world. Ultra religious Muslims and Christians are coming face to face with a society that is indifferent to religion.

The final solution..... a fence. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3447858/Czech-Republic-Slovakia-Hungary-Poland-meet-discuss-creating-blockade-stop-migrants-arriving-Greece.html#ixzz40Gf4mdG2

I'd like to see those escaping the war in Syria being granted temporary asylum.

Thats all good . . . but when you bite-off more than what you can chew it make for the refugees walking on eggshells across europe. Merkel has angered many of her people.

Its time for rich Gulf nations to take-in 5,000 / 10,000. I thought they'd be willing to help out their fellow muslim brothers and sisters. These gulf nations can grant them "temporary" asylum. I think Europe is done.

Tell us about your common sense solution.

"I'd like to see those escaping the war in Syria being granted temporary asylum"

It wouldn't work. The German "guest worker" program of the 1960s for Turks was supposed to be "temporary," after 2 years, they were required to return home. Many obviously refused, and also used the family unification clause to bring in more, who then stayed illegallly.

Further, the government couldn'T deport them, because the courts took over the cases, and ruled in the Turks' favor on "human rights" grounds.

Turks have since formed strong cultural enclaves where little German is spoken and children grow in states of deprivation, mainly due to their parents' refusal to integrate.

Not using expressions like "the final solution" ( what possible reason do you have for using an expression like that? ) and reading toilet paper like The Daily Mail would be a start.

I'd like to see those escaping the war in Syria being granted temporary asylum. This commonsensical idea has been discussed in Sweden and the UK. The 'solution' can't be to empty out the Middle East.

I hope these nations will succeed in thier aims!- the communists are done & that was no easy feat. These nations are christian majority & should allow ME christians who are at the mercy of the mullahs to emigrate within. I'm suprised the citizens of Germany haven't rioted en masse after Merkel opened the floodgates to anybody who could make the trip!

Anti-migrant force

The UK has a very small population of Muslims, and most of those were born here. You really need to stop watching Fox News.

even tough they are small they are a growing population faster than the UK can handle and with the Rotherham schandal and other places and cover ups and cops too afraid to do anything I'd would say you are quite wrong but please keep op denying till its too late.

Gee I wonder why if failing to stop Islamic racism against non muslims and not stopping them from coming and inviting them without consent of the people as well as covering up their crimes and not arresting them and using them as voting fodder for your political pary then you have failed as a goverment and leaders and deserve every bit of critisism the get.

Looking at England and Germany and everywhere in Europe the future looks bleak for Europe and Freedom and should we be calling Europe,Europastan in the Future.

I'm critical of allowing an enormous influx of migrants into Europe but expressions like "the final solution" along with a link to mindless right wing garbage like The Daily Mail isn't helpful to anyone.

We need common sense here, not stirring up hatred.

As long as Merkels open inviation stands, the flood will continue.It must be made clear that arrivals can not automatically expect to be housed, fed on simply the claim to seek asylum.

As it stands, the numbers are mind-blowing. 1 million young musim men in Germany now .... compared to a cohor (comparable age and gender group) of native young German men. That means that already by 2013, one third of young men in Germany will be muslim Arabs.

It is not an an Arab spring, it is an Arab takeover.
