Europe has always looked the other way as outsiders walked in until it was determined that they were no longer welcome. Why do you think America's immigrant programs are so far ahead of Europe's? America's history is one of immigration. It's a basic strength. But Europe's sense of immigration has always been temporary because at it's core there is a sense of the "true" European and "outsiders." Maybe after a few more social laws and such Europe will be forced to rediscover its identity.
