Opinion – For refugees, it’s destination Germany – The Washington Post – John Gelmini

A note of caution is needed about the excitement Germans feel about this humanitarian work that is so well described in this article brought to us by Dr Alf, via the Washington Post.

If world leaders and the UN do not up their game in the Middle-East, we risk unleashing a further 8 million refugees who will also want to go to their version of the “Promised Land”(Germany), followed by the dole-bludgers paradise and home of fake NI numbers, the UK.

The Hungarians identified 180 different nationalities in this latest influx, many of whom are economic migrants posing as refugees and not even from Africa at all. In defense of Hungary, they were following the ‘EU rules’.

It is all very well for Chancellor Merkel to allow 800,000 people into Germany, no doubt under American encouragement, pressure and instruction but if the welcome from people and these “men of the cloth”, Lutheran or otherwise, is too fulsome, Europe is going to find itself in deep trouble.

A better solution is to clear Libya of terrorists by combined military force, occupy that country having built a secure wall guarded by troops, drones and robots and then resettle the refugees and economic migrants there.

Slow road to Cyprus – places for revisiting? – Best Blogs Series
