BERLIN (Reuters) – Muslims who migrate to Europe should understand that there are better places for them to live if they do not want to accept the European way of life, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Wednesday.

Such migrants who do not accept Europe’s way of living should be told “you have made the wrong decision”, Schaeuble said during a round table discussion in Berlin.

“There are better places in the world to live under Islamic law than Europe,” he added.

Turning to the euro zone, he said that if European countries want to keep the euro, they must implement the common currency’s framework of joint responsibility.

  1. Theoretically there is nothing wrong with his remarks. Yes, if we do not like Germany we should find another place that we like. However, the ‘feeling’ behind the comments are not really nice. (or the way media is reporting it?). Because the vast majority of Muslim immigrants are very grateful to be there. That should be stated also.
