Invasion of Europe news….
German Chancellor Angela Merkel traveled to the United Arab Emirates to strengthen trade agreements and to see if that Muslim country would take some refugees.
They SAY they will take 15,000 Syrians over 3 years, but don’t hold your breath. More interesting, however, is the warning Merkel received according to World Politics Review:
Although the focus of the meetings is on prepping the upcoming G20 summit, Merkel is also urging leaders in the Gulf region to take in more refugees and provide humanitarian aid for those fleeing conflict in the Middle East.
The UAE is interested in working with Germany to aid refugees and fight poverty, Ali Abdullah al-Ahmed, the UAE’s ambassador in Berlin, told news agency DPA ahead of Merkel’s visit.
He also warned, however, that Germany should remain vigilant about radical Islamic preachers at Mosques.
“It is very important to be aware of what type of message preachers are giving to immigrants in mosques in Europe,” al-Ahmed said.
He said that although Merkel’s decision to take hundreds of thousands of refugees from Muslim-majority countries was a humanitarian gesture, it was not without risks.
When asked about calls from German politicians for the UAE to take in more refugees, al-Ahmed noted that the country financed a refugee camp in Jordan and is helping Greece build its own camp. He also said his country committed to accepting 15,000 Syrian refugees over the next three years. [From Germany’s excess?—ed]
Germany has taken in over one million asylum-seekers since 2015, many of whom come from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Merkel also traveled to Saudi Arabia but appears not to have asked the Saudis to take in refugees (they don’t take any!).
By the way, you should know that according to Wrapsnet we process hundreds of refugees FROM the UAE to YOUR TOWNS! Who are they?
