Multiculturalism is not the cure in a land divided by minorities

It's time to talk plainly on ethnic diversity and protect the rights and rules of our own society, writes Louis Jacob

IT'S official: Multiculturalism is bunk -- and while German chancellor Angela Merkel may have raised a few eyebrows with her remarks that it has been an abject failure in Germany, only the truly blind will argue otherwise.

Before we get off on the wrong foot, I want to establish an exact meaning according to the dictionary: multiculturalism is the preservation of different cultures or cultural identities within a unified society, as a state or nation.

The reason I find this definition so important is because I am not entirely comfortable with what I have to say and I don't want it to be misconstrued. Like everyone else, I am infused with the fear of political incorrectness that now runs deep in the veins of western society.
