Die German Stunde talks about -- Immigration: How Germany/the US is handling it -- or not

Die German Stunde talks about the publication of "Deutschland Schafft Sich Ab"  or Germany Does Away With Itself by Thilo Sarrazin, a (soon-to-be) former central banker. Sarrazin says Jews have a common gene and Muslims are either unwilling or unable to integrate into western societies. Intellectuals in Germany have roundly condemned the book, but a large number of average Germans think Sarrazin has publicly expressed what has long been tabu. Our guests:  Feridun Bek, born and raised in Germany to Turkish immigrant parents, Mr. Bek is an auto executive who now lives in Detroit. He'll talk about what Germany and the U.S. do right -- and wrong -- when it comes to immigration. And Sergey Lagodinsky.
