The EU tried to pawn off 100,000 Syrian refugees on Brazil (the land of zika)

Doesn’t sound like it would have been a very humanitarian thing to do!  And besides isn’t Brazil in deep economic doo-doo?

But who knew this was in the works! (No longer in the works!)

From Telesur:

Acting President Michel Temer suspended all talks with the EU over resettling refugees in Brazil.

The unelected coup government of Brazil, led by Michel Temer, suspended all talks with the European Union Friday over resettling Syrian refugees in Brazil, ending the “open arms for refugees” policy of President Dilma Rousseff which was put in place in 2013.

BBC Brazil was informed by two people involved in the negotiations over accepting refugees that the suspension was ordered by the new Minister of Justice, Alexandre de Moraes, and sent to advisors and diplomats at a meeting this week.

The refugee plan was initiated under the administration of former Justice Minister Eugene Aragon in 2013.

Brazil sought to obtain international resources to house about 100,000 people fleeing the conflict in Syria over a five year period.

The government of suspended President Rousseff was hailed by international aid organizations over its readiness to provide a home for thousands of Syrian refugees who are facing a strong tide of xenophobia and racism in Europe. (Maybe they were just looking for some cold hard European cash!)

The article goes on to say that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees was in on it too.

  8. It’s neither xenophobia nor racism, . It’s simple recognition we cannot afford the refugees in already broke/in debt nations, and none of us wants THEIR xenophobic anti-everyone supremacits attitudes with accompanying terrorism. Stop projecting and look at reality: everywhere they go, citizens suffer needlessly! Keep them in the ME where they belong! They won’ t live in peace with anyone else; they don’t even live in peace with each other!

    Ann, at first I thought you’d misspelt the word ‘zina’ (زِنَاء) or zina (زِنًى or زِنًا) in Islamic law concerning unlawful sexual relations between Muslims who are not married to one another. Then I realised, through my early morning fog, you were referring to the virus. However, ironically both could be applicable as Brazilianos are known for their voracious sexual appetites and lusty peccadillos.
    Just sayin’…………..
