The leader of Germany's Jewish community is calling on Chancellor Angela Merkel to impose limitations on the number of migrants seeking asylum in the country.

In an interview with the German newspaper Die Welt, Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, said that quotas are necessary in light of the fact that many of the million refugees expected to arrive in Germany this year "come from cultures where the hatred of Jews and intolerance is an integral part."

"Think not only of the Jews, think of the equality between men and women or dealing with homosexuals," Schuster said.
