And to be honest, I can see where he's coming from in terms of preserving cultural identity. Unlike countries such as America, his country (I'm not sure which) can consider themselves ethnic. Their people, their history can literally be traced back centuries. They are ethnic, and not only that but they have a history of foreigners coming in and ripping them apart (he didn't convey where in Europe he' s from, but still...)
This is something America and Australia will never understand: the fear that yet again your very survival as a country, a culture, and a people are at stake due to foreign people coming in by the hundreds of thousands. If I were Polish, Estonian, or any of the other European countries that had been torn apart by various foriegn factions, you bet your little paycheck I would be very sensitive to this new turn of events and very worried.
