Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Later this week, the interior ministers of the German states will be voting on a proposal to be begin forcibly repatriating Syrian refugees once their asylum status lapses -- as early as next June. If they agree, it would then be up to the federal interior ministry to decide whether parts of Syria are safe for return. But as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad mops up remaining opposition to his rule, and as the threat from the Islamic State melts away, Germany and other European states will have to judge -- far sooner than they expected to -- whether to send Syrians back to their devastated homeland, or to some portion of it.

The obligation of states is spelled out clearly in the 1951 U.N. Refugee Convention, which stipulates that an individual may not be returned if "his life or freedom may be threatened on account of his race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or opinion." Guidelines issued by the U.N. High Commission on Refugees dictate that, once granted asylum, refugees may be forcibly returned only when conditions in their home have changed fundamentally and enduringly, in such a way as to ensure a guarantee of protection to formerly persecuted people.

The problems with migrants in Germany. They don't speak the language. They have no marketable skills. They have utter contempt for their host's culture. They have an alien value system which denigrates women, and considers all non Muslims an inferior, debased, immoral and a threat to their "truth". They lie like a rug, about their country of origin, their age, and their previous associations with ISIS. Most are from North Africa, not a war zone. They came to Germany for the welfare. They are idle, bored and eventually find something to do, such as accosting women on the street for not adhering to Islamic dress codes. Germany had dwelt with Muslims for a long time, Turks and Kurds from the eighties on, Bosnian's from the nineties, big difference- These people were willing and able to work, and did.
