Hinging on a recent European Union statistics which showed that of the 213,000 migrant arrivals in April, May and June, only 44,000 of them were fleeing the Syrian civil war, MailOnline believes that there is a big lie surrounding the ongoing migrant crisis in Europe.
The medium writes:
To listen to the BBC, you might believe that every one of the hundreds of thousands of migrants clamouring to get into the EU was a Syrian refugee fleeing the horror of Islamic State or tyrannical president Bashar al-Assad.
But new Eurostat figures show the truth: 80 per cent are economic migrants from as far afield as Pakistan, Nigeria and Albania simply looking for a better life.
The Mail does not underestimate the agony and desperation of genuine Syrian asylum seekers who, of course, deserve care and compassion. That’s why David Cameron was right to ensure that those granted refuge in Britain come from camps on the Syrian border, rather than from among those already in Europe – who may not be Syrian.
But Germany – by first extending a welcome to all migrants, then slamming its borders shut when overwhelming numbers responded to the invitation – has created chaos for all its neighbours, where untold numbers are now stranded.
Through her naive and muddled policy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has placed the very future of the EU in jeopardy.
80 per cent are economic migrants from as far afield as Pakistan, NIGERIA and Albania simply looking for a better life.
Do you believe this?
