THIS ARTICLE got me thinking: Hungary is not a rich country, yet thousands of immigrants are flooding through there, some stopping for help, obviously…they’re hungry, they’re thirsty and tired. Hungary has done more than it can do.
MIGRANTS TEAR GASSED, HIT WITH WATER HYDRANTS! is the subtitle given that article on the web. That, indeed, might have happened…tensions are running high in Europe. The part that the public doesn’t see, though they certainly see the headlines, is this:
“Hungarian police used tear gas and water cannons on hundreds of migrants who broke through a razor wire fence on the border with Serbia on Wednesday, while migrants prevented from moving through Hungary increasingly began taking a longer route into Western Europe through Croatia.”
The titles of most articles sound like it’s the countries doing awful things to totally innocent refugees, but…really? Cutting through wire fences? See any tweaking by the media? Does anybody have concern for the countries migrants are breaking through fences of? …the countries which can’t afford to do much helping?
Refugees are saying that the “Greek Coast Guard is their biggest impediment to getting in..” They want help from GREECE? As if Greece has the money or the jobs?
Shouldn’t some entity like a functional United Nations have stepped in and actually HELPED this situation? Can’t there be people actually working out out deals where sanity and calm prevails, effective registration procedures, humanitarian help, so things could be done properly for everyone? (I know, ‘functional’ is the operative word regarding the UN here, isn’t it) Merkel is calling for a meeting of European countries…how’s about the Muslim ARABS? How’s about those air conditioned tents that are used only during the HAJ and are sitting empty right now, enough for three million people? How’s about the very rich Arabs helping other Muslims for a change? Doesn’t Europe notice that? I heard Rand Paul mention this in the debate, did you?
What is your solution to the refugee problem?
