Yes but what about the rest of the people who got into the country as refugees in other ways than the Balkans or the Med. If these were the first and the last refugees into Europe okay, but they are not and will not be last.
This isn't about 1920's or 1940's or whatever, this is about now. The countries these are fleeing too, cannot cope with these large numbers of immigrants at once. Also there is no control over who is coming and where they are going.
There is no regulation, no control, no nothing.
Am I the only one seeing this as a potential risk? Let's say these people end up in Germany or France or fuck knows where.... Nobody knows they are there, they are not getting money because of this. They get hungry and desperate and will need to find ways to get food.
I'm not saying all will end up like this but even if 1 percent of that very low 340.000 people ends up like that, you got 340 potential rapists, robbers, murderers or petty thiefs running around in Europe.
But we only wanted to help them. Good luck explaining that the their victims.
If they come in, controlled and in orderly fashion so that the government know where they are, how many there are, etc, my concern would be a lot, LOT less than it is now.
All this does now, is fuel the right wing extremists even more, make them even stronger and as a result, drive an even bigger wedge between 'the west' and muslims. But I guess I'm the only one who sees this so...
Let's agree to disagree.
