So she now needs to get Syrians to settle in thze Sudetenland so she can annexe those territories. From then on she will follow her mentor's strategy.

Sad that these stupid Czech's are resisting her resettlement plans. Time to set up a conference and make that idiot Cameron happy with a piece of paper.
Syrians only? Why, it could be pretty much anyone....the more, the merrier.

Not surprused as Merkel and her servants (Hollande, Juncker) are treating the Eastern Europeans like 3rd class citizens. And Cameron and the Brits are being ignored by Brussels., no wonder they want to leave the sinkng boat. And Marine Lepen hates the Americans, Brits) but is a close friend to Putin.

I think Eastern Europe should form a club, then hit Germany over the head with it.

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

Again,


what many users fail to see is that the law is the law. You cannot simply get rid of it just because you don't like it.


If you think that a Constitution is a thing you foreigners (and alike) prefer you don't have to or simply cannot respect, please go back to your homecountries and leave the place for others who would appreciate more.


And Asylum is a Constitutional right plus international treaties, with or without wars and refugees.


Btw. the war, unfortunately, takes place with and without Merkel. After all, it was the Koalition der Willigen which created the power gap in Iraq (which was the main cause for Sunni malcontent and ISIS hq), not Merkel and not Germany.
What however will bring more refugees to Germany is not Merkel, but Bundessozialgericht, with regards to immigrants from poor Eastern European countries.

In real democracies this happens all the time. But as you speak from a German perspective, I see your point.

So I should leave Switzerland because I don't like the German constitution?

Have you considered investing in a good atlas?

Ever heard of Bundesverfassung? It's not that only Germany has a Constitution or Grundgesetz. Many advanced countries do, you know.

If you think you cannot abide by the Swiss Constitution and Swiss law (many users here in this 3d can be legally prosecuted btw. Maybe also the forum itself), pay.

And pray, show me the article in the Swiss Constitution that says you have to agree with the German Constitution or go home?

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

That you should be convicted and then ausgeschafft if you think you can act against Swiss law is Swiss law.


That Asylum is a Swiss Constitutional right is Swiss law.


That Asylum is a German Constitutional right is German law, apart international aspects of this very matter.


That you are a clueless foreigner is legal in Switzerland and Germany, so far.


Agitating against the Constitution might not.

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

I think your version of Germany sounds more like Saudi Arabia, Iran, or even North Korea. Now, are you sure you are really german, and not from one of those?

Sorry, but this is total balderash.

People are discussing changes to laws and, yes, even to the constitution all the time. It's called the political process.

Stop trying to confuse your utopic fascism with reality.

Well, then you can DISCUSS about what you like or what you dislike to keep or to change.

But agitating against the law is illegal in quite every country.

Also in this forum it's the Swiss law, the point of concern.

So or you abide or prepare the eventuality of being prosecuted by the very law.

Re: How should the EU handle the Migrant Crisis from now?

I don't care about ius sanguinis, if that's what you mean (or are you referring to the Nazi Thing? Why are you Anglos so much in love with all that Nazi stuff? Strange fetish, imho).


What I meant is that one of the citizen's duties is the respect and the protection of fundamental rights guaranted by the Constitution, among them Asylum.


Imho very strange that those who blaim the refugees not to love "Western" constitutions have so little respect towards Swiss law.
Furthermore, those users are "guests" in the country and should kind of "behave".
And it might not up to them to change Swiss law, btw., so the "discussion" is quite relativistic in any case.
Maybe integration could be a better first step.

What you meant is that you are better than st2lemans because you have Swiss blood and didn't acquire your passport through naturalisation.

That makes you a "blood and soil" type in most people's books. Interpret that as you will.

Ohh, I see, you never get tired of making false accusations. We have patience.
First thing first, no-one has even discussed about the Swiss constitution or the refugees CH is going to take. Switzerland is not a member of EU, why on earth do you keep mixing them up into this discussion?
Germany, on the other hand, is - and a very powerful and dominant one at that. In the end of course Germany is free to do as they please as long as they don't impose their own way onto others...or does the German Constitution have a special paragraph about that too?

Do read the title of the thread again...

Actually, on a second thought.....never mind.
