Slovakia right to reject Muslims

Slovakia has announced that it does not want to accept Muslim refugees on the grounds that there are no mosques in the country. The left-leaning daily Duma understands the Slovakians' fears and believes the tolerance limit will soon be reached in the rest of Europe: "The Muslims want to maintain their culture, language, customs and religion in their 'new home' at all cost. They seal themselves off and see themselves as a separate, independent society. There are endless examples of this in Europe, which has recently reacted with growing annoyance to this trend. Instead of welcoming Islam with open arms, things will no doubt cool off in the weeks and months to come. This tendency can already be felt. Sooner or later the Europeans will wake up and see that they are the victims of a doctrine that no longer has anything to do with the idea of the European Union as a community of sovereign states. Hopefully Slovakians won't be forced to build mosques, but who knows."

Albanians playing with fire undisturbed

Albania's Prime Minister Sali Berisha and his Kosovar counterpart Hashim Thaçi on Sunday visited the Macedonian capital Skopje as part of the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of Albania. The daily Duma is alarmed: "Berisha und Thaci are adding fuel to the fire by making allusions to a Greater Albania. … 'Our neighbouring states must understand that the national unity of the Albanians is not a bad thing,' Berisha told an enthusiastic crowd. Thaçi promised that Priština would 'campaign' for the ethnic Albanians in Macedonia and Serbia and recalled Albania's support in Kosovo's fight for independence from Serbia, eliciting huge applause. … The EU, the European Parliament and the people of Europe doubtless observed this dangerous and worrying spectacle. … But as always when the subject is independence, all the institutions of the otherwise so united Europe remain silent. Now isn't that strange?"
