Europeans have no idea on how to assimilate immigrants, as Sweden so poignantly shows by segregating swimming
Sweden stirs debate with women-only swimming, in nod to Muslims
Nearly all European related immigration over the past 120 years has been from Europe to other places, most commonly America or Canada. As a result Europe has no idea on what to do with immigrants. They have copious experience with emigrants, however.
More after the jump.
,a"As Muslims become a larger part of Swedish society, some municipal pools are offering women-only swimming to accommodate the new arrivals. But while well intended, the new policy is bumping up against Swedish ideals of equality."
Perhaps Sweden could use a primer? The general rule is the immigrant adopts, adapts, and assimilates to your cultural boundaries. You as the host country pick over the immigrants cultural, social, and culinary elements take the best, discard the rest. At home, they act as they wish, but in the greater culture they abide by your general cultural mores.
While there is give and take, Europe is only giving, this will result in disaster.
