We are seeing unprecedented changes happening in our time. These large numbers of peoples that are leaving their homeland and settling in other countries are likely to make a difference to the countries that welcome them. EG: Germany is taking large numbers of Syrians. In 10 years' time, will they be influencing their neighborhoods or will they be influenced by the country they are in? Will some be running take-aways and popularizing their foods and will their children now reaching their teens want to dress like their German friends? Will they put a stamp on the areas they now live in?

"where most of the perpetrators where actually Algerians and Moroccans" should read "where most of the perpetrators were actually Algerians and Moroccans" - sorry for the typo.
You gave us a balanced & researched report. It is so useful to listen to a sane voice. Thank you. I hope we find a path between letting everybody in regardless,and putting all refugees in cruel, indefinite detention as happening in my country.
Thanks for reading and responding CJKelly. Interesting assumptions, well worth reflecting on. When you say Germany "owes" us, wouldn't that apply to all the allies, and also to those who devastated Japan?
Yes, I do mean all the Western Allied countries that helped bring down Germany and to a lesser extent, Japan. Our magnanimous occupation of the country is why they are a dominant player in Europe today.
Hi Terrex, thank you for reading and for giving us your view. It is quite interesting to read the variety of opinions. You seem to have a rather fearful result in mind. You may be right, but for humanity's sake, let us hope you are not.
One cannot help but be fearful in the face of facts like the astronomical incidence of rape in Sweden and the organised pedophilic grooming gangs in UK.
Humanity still doesn't like to talk openly about them so I do fear for the future of our children
Terrex, The facts you present do seem dark, and I agree that it is imperative that we talk about them openly. I think that it will be a complex and difficult task to combat such evil forces. Any ideas what might get us there?
Steps 1,2&3: Stop political correctness. If a particular race/religion/ethnicity etc. is10 times more likely to commit a particular type of crime, SAY SO.
It's been revealed UK police let little girls be abused for years because of this cowardice
Actually, no. Why don't you just say exactly what you're thinking so we can skip the 'figure out' part?
I hope you aren't being politically correct... :)
