    Muslim Migrants Unwilling to Integrate Into European Society - Czech President

    Examples all over Europe show that Muslims are not willing to integrate into local communities, living instead in Muslim-dominated no-go zones, Czech President Milos Zeman said Sunday.

    PRAGUE (Sputnik) — The president added he is not a xenophobe and is glad that Vietnamese and Ukrainian migrants had been successfully integrating into the Czech society.

    "Look across Europe and wonder to what extent Muslim migrants were able to integrate. You will learn about the so called no go areas and 'excluded neighborhoods.' I do not rule out the possibility of positive examples though. As for the Czech Republic, the Muslim community is very much limited here. I am warning against its strengthening," Zeman said as broadcast by local channel TV Blesk.

    Europe has been trying to cope with a massive refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing crisis-torn countries in the Middle East and North Africa, including from Syria, to escape violence and poverty. The European Union adopted a quota system last September that envisages the relocation of 160,000 asylum seekers across the bloc within two years.

    The quota system has not been unanimously welcomed by EU members and faced criticism from several EU states primarily from the eastern part of the bloc, such as Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, who have opposed its mandatory nature.

      If Europe thinks that they have a problem with Muslim immigrants integrating into society, wait until they try to teach the NAFARIs how to use a fork and napkin!

      The little man/woman in the street has told you so for the last twenty years. Its time for you liberal globalists to move out of the way and let sane people take the steering of the politics.

      NATOisEVIL, It won't happen. The road to right is narrow, and the road to destruction, being deceived and being left behind is a wide road. In the end, those on the road to destruction will end up believing in their own lies. Personally, I am quite content to get out of their way. If you cannot run a guard rail at the top of the cliff, you will end up running an ambulance service at the bottom. Is that our job, too?

      Muslims will never integrate as Islam is a cult, the Mosques aren't doing enough to smooth the transition in fear of reducing their flock, a heavily mind controlled religion, Islam 1st.
      National pride and patriotism is counter to a Muslims belief, ,this is a Western mind set.
      Immigration should be stopped, there are other more positive cultures who integrate without problems.

      50 million European Muslims have long lived and integrated into European society for centuries, but it takes only a few refugees to commit crimes to convince European supremacists like the Czech that every Muslim in Europe have suddenly never integrated, and their history in Europe immediately falls from collective memory...

      No wonder why Hitler has managed to conquer Europe so easily. The hate was already there and he capitalized on it.
