Poland axes promise to take in 7,000 migrants after Brussels suicide bombings

Poland today abandoned its promise to the EU to take in 7,000 migrants because of the jihadist attacks in Brussels that killed 34 people.

The country’s previous government had agreed to take the migrants in, but today Prime Minister Beata Szydlo declared she would not be honoring the agreement.

Speaking at the Belgian Embassy in Warsaw where she laid flowers to honor the victims, she appealed for urgent talks to allow Europe to counter the ‘plague’ of radicalisation.

    Now that’s exercising some wisdom!

    • I wish we had their PM, instead we have a blithering idiot.

    Okay, but why did Poland agree to it in the first place?

      Because under the auspices of the EU, most European governments have little autonomy and are basically puppet governments run by the EU headquartered in Brussels (Oh the irony…).

      Seems like some of them have just about had enough of their sovereignty being trammelled and if Brexit goes ahead I hope many will follow.

    But terrorists are people too, I know because Justin Trudeau said it is so.

    That is why it is unfair for Poland not to take its fair share of terrorists!

    The EU must do something to force Poland to be fair to these people. They are part of the EU so Poland has to do what Brussels tells them.

    I can see the Iron Curtain coming down again … to keep the Western Europeans out.

    • Observer

      Do you mean the new “Western Europeans” or the old stock Western Europeans who will be fleeing for their lives from the new Western Europeans?

      • Brett_McS

        I wouldn’t be too keen on either, myself. Men of military age in Germany will be majority Muslim in less than a decade. That’s if they just carry on as they are now.

    they need to expel all their muslims now

    I heard Toronto wants to help out!

    Very misleading headline to Urban Dwellers.

    • Maurice Miner

      BUT… how can one philosophically connect a minor transport issue in Brussels with the need to house, hug, and feed the millions seeking refuge from major transport issues in the ME?

      Oh, the humanity!

      Urban Dwellers just need to be aware. Aware, and awake. Aware, awake, and – oh, fergettaboutit – just avoid places where public transport meets reality.

      Just celebrate diversity.

      Diversity is our strength, dontcha know?

        Our experience with our aboriginal population is very informative.

            “German submarine U-286 was a Type VIIC U-boat of Nazi Germany’s Kriegsmarine during World War II. The submarine was laid down on 3 August 1942 at the Bremer Vulkan yard at Bremen-Vegesack as yard number 51.”

            I was mistaken perhaps if I’d gone for an isotope.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Maybe you meant “Dances with U238”, since the fissile U235 is the evil White man’s invention.

          • Minicapt

            I was quite sure that was your intent; -233, -234, -235, -236, -237, -238 are still available.

            Wow, you really know your Native American isotopes!

            How long would it take them to invent the wheel?

          • Hate Crime In Progress

            Well I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting…
            I’d suggest that if, after 50,000 yrs or more living in one of the most resource-rich lands on the planet they never learnt to build shelter from the elements, to mill timber, to mine ore, to smelt metal, to write, to make music, to domesticate animals, to grow food, etc, etc… If after 50,000 yrs they are still sleeping on the dirt and eating grubs and lizards, then “the wheel” is probably not a realistic expectation.

    She sounds eminently sensible. Watch the organised campaign against her unfold…
