Berlin plans 'integration contract' for immigrants

This is a very interesting development. I wonder if we will see more of these drafted around the West? I actually don't think it is a bad idea. Much of the trouble is that the West has told Muslims, you have freedom when you come here. And they understand (well, some of them) ok, freedom to establish an Islamic society and Islamicize this society and receive preferential treatment, like the Shariah says I should. Is Europe waking up? Or is it too little too late?

The new contract, a goal for the current legislative period, will elaborate on what kind of support immigrants can expect from Germany, in addition to “what we expect from the immigrants,” Maria Böhmer told daily Stuttgarter Nachrichten.

“All who want to live and work here for the long run must say yes to our country,” she continued. “To this belongs proficiency in the German language, but also a readiness to take part in society.”

German values, such as freedom of speech and equal rights for women must also be recognised in the proposed contract, said Böhmer, a member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative Christian Democrats.

Interesting piece, but how do you maintain support for those kinds of measures? Have the police knock on doors and make sure everyone's being a good German? Start keeping closer track of domestic violence reports in immigrant neighborhoods, and deport those who fall short of this contract? Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great idea, but I fail to see how Germany could possibly implement any kind of follow-through on a large scale.

I think you're right actually. You are going to end up with more and more of a police state. But it's a short step from a nanny state to a police state.
