Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Translating president Wulff's key sentence against Bavarian PM Seehofer for those not speaking German:

"Ich wende mich gegen jedes Pauschalurteil", sagte Wulff der Hürriyet. "Zu behaupten, eine ganze Gruppe könne und wolle sich nicht integrieren, halte ich für falsch."I oppose every blanket judgement", Wulff told the Hürriyet. "I think the claim that a whole group cannot or doesn't want to integrate is wrong."

As for the FDP's federal justice minister, her outrage was more predictable (she is a last fossil of the FDP's onetime social liberal wing, and was Seehofer's coalition partner in Bavaria before going into the Merkel II government), she used the same image I did in the diary: Seehofer tries to surf on Sarrazin's waves.
