in response to reader comment: Eurabia follies: Germany 'tolerated' asylum seekers can stay- France: Ends EU visa checks for Algerians

Other Schengen countries should try and emulate Germany in the way they treat foreigners or asylum seekers, Germany has been the only country in the Schengen region that treats asylum seekers well, I am a Journalist from Africa, I have interviewed people, I have read stories and articles about how foreigners and asylum seekers are being maltreated in Europe but to my utmost consternation, I was made to believe that German Government provides accommodation, monthly wages as well as clothing allowance for asylum seekers. It would also interest you to know that asylum seekers in Germany have access to medical care.

I visited Germany sometime last year, I was there for a period of two weeks, I did not experience any form of harassment by the Police as people always say. Germany is a peaceful country with a well organised society, the citizens also are very accommodating.
