Germany's interior minister Thomas de Maiziere vowed revenge on fellow states over their part in the refugee chaos, accusing the rest of Europe of trying to "shift the collective problem onto our back".
The extreme outburst highlighted the huge rifts opening up between European countries as the Brussels project lurches closer to collapse under the pressure of unprecedented migration.
Europe has been paralysed by indecision and bitter infighting over who should take the blame for the current refugee crisis, which has seen millions of people from Asia, the Middle East and North Africa arrive in the continent.
And yesterday Germany - which has descended into chaos after taking in by far the most migrants - finally snapped and issued an extraordinary rebuke to fellow member states.
In a furious outburst Mr de Maiziere said: "We will continue to fight for a European way out of the refugee crisis as long as it also promises to be successful in diminishing the number of refugees.
"However, should some countries try to unilaterally shift the collective problem onto the back of Germany, it would be unacceptable and would not be without consequences from our side in the long term."
His comments could be construed as a thinly-veiled swipe at neighbours Austria, which has introduced a highly controversial cap on the number of asylum seekers it will accept each day.Read the rest of the story HERE.
