German Chancellor Angela Merkel stood before the youth wing of her Christian Democratic Union Party over the weekend and said that multiculturalism has failed in the country. The integration of Muslim Turks and Germans has gone on unsuccessfully over the last 40 years.

Andrew Nagorski, vice president and director of public policy at the EastWest Institute, says that for all our problems here in the U.S. with immigration, we have coped with it better than many European societies. Baha Gungor, head of the Turkish language section of Deutsche Welle radio, has lived in Germany for 50 years and think Merkel's comments are misguided.
