Germany's Schaeuble says if Muslim migrants don't like Europe, go elsewhere

BERLIN (Reuters) - Muslims who migrate to Europe should understand that there are better places for them to live if they do not want to accept the European way of life, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Wednesday.

Such migrants who do not accept Europe’s way of living should be told “you have made the wrong decision”, Schaeuble said during a round table discussion in Berlin.

“There are better places in the world to live under Islamic law than Europe,” he added.

Turning to the euro zone, he said that if European countries want to keep the euro, they must implement the common currency’s framework of joint responsibility.
