Poland: No Syrian refugees for us!
Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2015
In ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, maybe Poland will be one of the few European countries to save itself….
From the Guardian which calls their position “baffling” and “pungent:”
“We don’t want terrorists here,” the Polish pensioner says, when asked about EU plans to resettle refugees more broadly across the continent. “Have you seen what they’re doing in the west?”
It’s a popular view here, if a baffling one. Poland is little affected by the refugee crisis in Europe, and accepts vanishingly small numbers of migrants. And yet the country has some of the most pungent views on immigration on the continent. A recent survey for the television station TVN found that two-thirds of Poles share the same hostility towards immigrants expressed by the Warsaw grandmother cited above.
According to a study in 2013 by the Centre for Research on Prejudice – a professional academic centre at the University of Warsaw – as many as 69% of Poles do not want non-white people living in their country.

And remember readers, it was the Polish military that saved Christian Europe from the invasion of the continent by the Ottoman (Muslim) invaders in 1683. Isn’t it true that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it?
There wouldn’t be any snooty Guardian today if it weren’t for the Poles.
