With Germany and all of Europe facing a huge and growing problem of large numbers of unassimilated Muslim immigrants streaming into the country and growing at a rate far faster than the native population, the German Parliament has finally decided to act decisively and limit immigration … of Jews.

BERLIN – The German parliament’s Home Affairs Committee said on Wednesday that Jewish immigration from the former Soviet Union should continue, but urged de facto limits by calling for migrants to undergo German language tests and checks on their employment qualities.
Dieter Wiefelspuetz, the committee spokesman from Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s Social Democrats (SPD), said that in the future there would have to be a stronger emphasis on integration for Jews arriving in Germany.
“There should still be Jewish immigrants in the future,” he said.
The German government is seeking hammer out a deal on limiting Jewish immigration with Germany’s 16 Laender, the federal states, and the country’s Central Council of Jews, which is wary about any restrictions.
Agreement on a new Jewish immigration law may not be achieved until summer given that the government wants a green light from the Central Council of Jews. Among criteria being considered to cut Jewish immigration are imposing language tests and an employability ranking system.
In the meantime, some 27,000 Jews who have already applied and received a green light to come to Germany will be admitted under the old regulations, officials say.
