Matthew Fisher: Syria is hell, but let’s not mistake that some who are escaping are country shopping

Not since the Battle of Vienna in 1683 have so many Muslims tried to make their way to Europe at once.

The difference between that conflict, which pitted the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation against the Ottoman Turks, and the drama unfolding in Europe today is that this time it is to escape war that hundreds of thousands of Muslims, and perhaps hundreds of thousands more, have flooded the continent.

    They just want to drag us down to their level, send them back.

  • This invasion may just awaken Europeans from their suicidal, multi-culti slumber.

    The difference this time isn’t that they are escaping war, rather they are invading with no one fighting back.

    • Alain

      Bang on, and not only is Europe not fighting back this time, Europe has the put out the welcome mat for them.

  • Cat-astrophe

    China has built empty cities all over the place. They could probably absorb the entire Syrian population.
    What is it, about 100,000,000? Hardly any of the invaders look like Syrians, so I had to pad the number.
