East Europeans and Turks are still the Mexicans of Europe.

German chancellor Angela Merkel has declared multiculturalism dead, an utter failure. Cartoonists who go out of their way to mock other cultures are to be explicitly honoured in the name of free speech. France has followed up law 2004-228 (banning all religious symbols and garb in publicly-funded schools) with a full legal ban on wearing the veil in any public location. (So much for the legal fiction that the previous law was not intended primarily to target Muslim cultural practices.)

The cracks are widening.
