The test of loyalty to foreign countries/democracies by Muslims seeking citizenship

The UK Telegraph (via Lost Budgie Blog) has an interesting report on a new special exam Germany has launched for Muslims to test their loyalty to the state and its laws when they apply for German citizenship:
"Believed to be the first test of its kind in Europe, the southern state of Baden-W├╝rttemberg has created the two-hour oral exam to test the loyalty of Muslims towards Germany."

"It is to be taken on top of the standard test for foreigners wishing to become German citizens, which includes language proficiency skills and general knowledge."

(Some questions from the exam) "Is it right that women obey their husbands, and for men to beat their wives when they are disobedient? What are your views on bigamy? If your adult daughter dressed like a German woman, would you try to prevent her from doing so?"
It's certainly an interesting idea for trying to maintain law and order. Sadly, there is every possibility that some, if not all, Muslims applying for citizenship in Germany could lie in their applications if that's what it took to infiltrate the borders of any democracy. Nevertheless, this certainly is an interesting development in Europe, I'll say.

While we're on the subject, Debbie Schlussel discusses the trip she made to a pre-trial court hearing for Fawaz Damra, who was convicted of terrorist funding, including funds given to Sami Al-Arian for terrorist activities. As she notes, there's every chance Damra's daughters could share the same views as he does, and could certainly be brainwashed into them. Which is exactly why the question of if they're deserving of immediate citizenship upon being born within the US, or any other democracy, needs to be raised, since who knows? They could be dangerous from an ideological perspective. As Debbie says:
I watched Damra's wife and daughters (one wore jeans--nice way to respect the court). I wondered what they think of their father's activities and utterances. They're probably supportive. I wondered sitting there, as American who is Jewish (a proud "daughter of monkeys and pigs"), did they want to raise money to stab me and my family, too? How about my cousins back in Israel or scattered throughout Europe? (I'd have asked them, but I was and am sick with laryngitis.) I don't really need to wonder because I know the answer. And it's beyond unAmerican. (Even the likes of Abu Moskowitz, useful idiot that he is, are non-distinct "sons of monkeys and pigs" to them, all worthy of the same fate.)

Yet, these people get to live in my country because their father lied on his application to become a citizen (about his associations with terrorist groups)--and because, as a result of that lie, they had the fortunate accident of birth in our country. Even if their criminal father gets deported, they will get to grow up here and spread their father's hatred of not just Jews--but America and Christians, also uttered in the transcript--to their children, to their community--in their father's place.

I would much rather be the daughter of "monkeys and pigs" than the daughter of a terrorist, a daughter who agrees with her father's hateful, murderous enterprise.

They were dressed in typical American teenage garb, plus hijabs. But the Damra offspring are anything but American. They are their father's daughters. The daughters of a terrorist. A fundraiser and cheerleader for mass murder. He will likely be deported. But they won't. And that's why we need to end the citizenship birthright. Their father was here under false pretenses, and therefore, not only he--but they, too--must be stripped of their citizenship.
Yes indeed, if they share any of the same prejudiced viewpoints as their papa does, then that is certainly why immigration laws must be changed, so that the offspring of immigrants, especially illegal ones, can't receive immediate citizenship upon applying. It's something that a lot of democracies, most certainly if they want to stay that way, are now going to have to consider.

Not only that, even legal forms of exile may have to be considered when dealing with people born to immigrants, and I think there is something like that sometimes employed in the US, called de-naturalization.

If this is what's required in order to effectively combat terrorism and the teaching of it within democratic countries, then lawmakers will hopefully consider it, if anything.
