Julia Gillard 2012 – “immigrants have a duty to integrate”.
Standard requests made by different leaders of immigrants to their countries.
enshrine a nation’s values, some ask for specific values to be taught at school and these are based on a particular type of culture. I can see how the above easily relates to muslim culture and how this would fit in with German culture but on the other hand – is the phrase “when in Rome” now a cover for racism?

What standard of morality a nation should hold itself to in a serious fight against a brutal enemy is not an idle question, or a new one. It came up again and again during World War Two. Churchill, for example, in considering whether the anthrax bombs the U.S. had produced should be dropped on German cities, questioned whether Britain could afford always to be bound by moral constraints when fighting people like the Nazis. Also, serious consideration was given to plastering Iwo Jima with poison gas, so that U.S. forces could just wait for it to do its work on the 21,000 defenders and then walk in unopposed. Neither of these things was done--and yet neither Truman nor Churchill ever even questioned whether the atomic bomb should be used on Japan.
