(That is interesting because I liken Merkel to a person who went to the top of a snowy mountain and fired off a .357 magnum in order to start one)
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble has compared the refugee crisis to an avalanche that could engulf Europe. He appealed for greater solidarity in the issue, although there a few signs of that emerging.
The German finance minister warned that EU member states could still see the immigration crisis worsen, adopting an alpine metaphor to get his point across.
“Avalanches can be triggered if any careless skier hits the slopes and moves a little snow,” said Schäuble.

(As I have said before, based on what people have told me who attend Catholic schools, teaching islam was impossible thanks to muslim students who constantly interupted and demanded it be taught as fact and their way etc. Judaism was also impossible to teach as each mention of it brought forth the Hitler Youth in many muslim students present)
This Thursday (Nov 5, 2015) two cars with 16-to-22-year-old Muslims arrived at a Danish high school. The “nine or ten” Muslims wanted to punish 17-year-old Danish boy Mads Skjoldsøge for “disrespecting” some of them the previous weekend.
Mads Skjoldsøge was stabbed moments later and died within one hour.
The following three Muslims have been charged:
18-year-old Chechen Muslim; released but still charged:
Name: Yusub Kavkazov
I am pretty sure that this guy will not be punished because the two others are minors (under-18) and if they can’t be deported (e.g. they have Danish citizenship), they will probably willingly take the blame to save this guy’s ass and because their own sentences will be much lighter than his.

The European Union pressed African leaders on Wednesday to take back thousands of people who do not qualify for asylum, as overwhelmed Slovenia began building a razor-wire border fence to keep migrants at bay, raising tensions with neighboring Croatia.
Sweden, struggling to manage the influx too, became the latest EU nation to announce the introduction of temporary border controls, as of Thursday.
According to the International Organization for Migration, almost 800,000 people have entered Europe by sea this year. The EU predicts that three million more could arrive by 2017.
The Europeans say most Africans are coming in search of work and should be sent home, but many deliberately arrive without documents and must wait months before they are taken back.
At an EU-run summit in Malta, African leaders are set to commit “to cooperate with the EU on return and admission, notably on travel documentation,” according to the latest draft of an “Action Plan” being drawn up.
