‘Relocate Syrian refugees within Europe’ says UN

As the Syrian war enters its fifth year, the UN’s refugee agency is calling for a new approach in Europe to support some of the 3.9 million people who have fled the conflict.

Under the UNHCR’s new proposals, presented to the EU, some Syrians would helped to from their arrival points in southern Europe to elsewhere on the continent, in order to stop Mediterranean countries being overwhelmed by refugees and asylum seekers making illegal, often unsafe journeys to other parts of Europe, including Sweden and Germany.

“The situation in the Mediterranean is such that we think that it’s urgent to come with a fresh and bold look at what is happening, and to look at proposals to deal with this situation,” UNHCR spokesperson William Spindler told The Local Italy.

Last year over 170,000 people arrived by boat to Italy, with Syrians making up the largest group. UN figures however show that only a minority seek asylum within Italy, with most Syrians travelling across European borders illegally to settle elsewhere.

In Sweden, 50,235 people have sought asylum in the past three years. Sweden currently takes in more refugees per capita than any other European country and the Swedish government has pledged 1,200 resettlement places.

Recognizing this trend, Spindler said legal routes between southern and northern European countries must be opened up. The UN is calling for an agreement which would stop Syrians having to smuggle themselves across European borders, without altering the EU’s Dublin regulation on asylum seekers…

Together with Statistics Sweden, the newspaper has mapped out ethnic segregation in 30 of Sweden’s largest municipalities, using a value it calls “the segregation differential”. The survey suggests that ethnic segregation has grown in all but two in the past two decades, Luleå in the north of Sweden and Solna near the capital.

Economics professor Olof Åslund, Director General of the Institute for Labour Market and Education Policy Evaluation, told Dagens Nyheter: “That the number of immigrants and native Swedes differs suggests segregation. We can tell that over a period over of time it is on the increase – it is noticeable. The number of people from foreign backgrounds has gone up and it has risen more in areas that already have a large number of immigrants.”

    Muslim immigration to Europe and North America is a very intentional part of the jihad against the west. Of course, the Muslims in Syria should be relocated to other “safe” domains within the 57 Muslim nations where ISIS or civil war doesn’t exist. However, the global jihad demands the subjugation of non-Muslims everywhere in the world and so immigration to Europe is pursued as official policy.

      I will never forget Obama saying the 57;states, who is he. He sure isn’t American,

  • Millie_Woods

    Why Europe, what’s wrong with the other 150-or-so countries in the world? Why isn’t the UN urging them to take in Syrian refugees?

    Oh ya, they’re almost all ungenerous, racist, third world shitholes without welfare, free healthcare or running water. In other words, most of the UN’s members.

    Oh well, I suppose the Europeans did set themselves up as patsies. Enjoy.

    • Petrilia

      As/did we in Canada. And I am not sure we are we are enjoying. Having our enemies so close to me makes me sick..

    • Frau Katze

      I notice the wealthy Gulf states have taken zero so far.

      • Blacksmith

        They would take them as slaves, but no other way.

  • Ron MacDonald

    What’s wrong with Africa?

    • Rosenmops

      And China. Or Japan or Korea. Why are “white” countries the only ones expected to take in these invaders?

      • lolwut?

        Only white countries need to be more diverse.

    • Barrington Minge

      How long have you got?

    • Millie_Woods

      Heh! Only a racist can answer that question.

  • Petrilia

    Oh Swedish professer, must be smart. Or not. Has he seen what is happening in his own country. SWEDEN. Stand up for FREEDOM . Next step sharia. Hopes he likes it.

  • Canadian

    The Useless Nations are now a far cry from the founding idea.
    They are just like the Obama White Mosque.

    • Frau Katze

      LOL! They are useless. Actually, they’re useful at nagging the West to rescue third worlders who have f$cked their countries so badly everyone wants to leave.

      • Canadian

        But they don`t want to leave for another muzzie country.

        • Rosenmops

          Because they know muzz countries are sh*tholes and foreigners don’t get free money.

          • Canadian

            Right on the nose!

  • Martin B

    How bout relocating Syrian refugees within Saudi Arabia, which has lots of room and is RIGHT NEXT DOOR?

    • Frau Katze

      That’s my idea too. But they’re not interested.

    • pdxnag

      They can build 1,000 mosques in Saudi Arabia to accommodate them and their shared love of barbaric Islam. Otherwise insist on strict containment of populations that propagate Islam.

  • Frances

    These refugees should be relocated to the homes of the UN commissioners who issued this nonsense.

  • Obviously, the officials concerned in the UN are in favor of the Arabization and Moslemization of Europe – i.e. Eurabia. It would be interesting to know who these people are, specifically – for the UN is not a monolith. Are they Arabs/Moslems or Leftists? The UN today is certainly not a ‘neutral’ body.

    If Syrian refugees are to be relocated, they objectively belong among their Arab/Moslem brethren, in Iraq, Iran, the Arabian peninsula, etc. Far from Europe preferably.

  • Barrington Minge

    Syrian refugees?…Syria seems the ideal place for them.
    As noted elsewhere, I note that no mooslim state seems to be interested in them.
    Now, I wonder why that is?

    Were some calamity befall Israel, Europe would take in zero point zero Israeli Jewish refugees (with the possible exception of Cyprus)

  • They can go to Arab countries. Their Muslim brothers can take them in.
