Thousands of Iraqi migrants ask to be flown BACK to Iraq from Finland because they don’t like the country and it’s ‘too cold’ for them

Thousands of Iraqi refugees who arrived in Finland last year have decided to cancel their asylum applications and to return home voluntarily.

Many of the refugees have cited family issues and disappointment with life in the frosty Nordic country for the reason they are heading home.

Europe is in the grip of its worst migrant crisis since World War Two, with more than a million people arriving last year, fleeing wars and poverty in the Middle East and beyond.


Suddenly I’m hoping this cold snap sticks around for a long time…

    If you look at a map of the world, you’ll notice that the entire country of Finland is north of 60, and a good-sized portion is north of the Arctic Circle. What did these parasites expect to find up there? A desert? Camels?

      The Iraqi expectation should’ve been nothing more than a safe harbor from Finland. Their request to be flown back is quite revealing! It shows – Their predicament was not as dire as believed, they’re still looking for a handouts by requesting return air transportation and they’re ungrateful. But the most important thing to be learned is that Muslims don’t do well in the cold!!!! Note to self, Alaska should be a safe zone.

        Canada’s North is crawling with muslims – Yukon, the NET and Nunavut are all chock full of muzzies, relatively speaking.

          Darn cockroaches!

          …then we should import more Finns.

        No doubt they’re disappointed to find the local reindeer aren’t nearly as cooperative as their native sheep and goats…

          I don’t imagine the Sami ranchers (aka Laplanders) like people messing with their reindeer herds either.

        Sheep too.

    It’s interesting that the majority of those returning are from Iraq, as opposed to Afghanistan, Somalia or Syria. Perhaps the deposition of Saddam and the interminable “nation-building” that followed weren’t quite the epic disaster that so many seem to believe these days?

  • Dana Garcia

    Some scientists think the lack of sunspots could signal the beginning of a mini Ice Age. Who can forget the Maunder Minimum?

    Better stay home, camel boyz.

      I believe it – our sloped driveway looks like a bobsled run.

    So there is some hope left for Canada.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Nope. Canada’s North has already been infected, I’m afraid.

    They shouldn’t be allowed to cancel their asylum applications. That would leave open the possibility that they’d try elsewhere. The applications should be rejected if they are willing to return voluntarily, as this would make their application fraudulent.

  • BillyHW

    They were never legitimate refugees in the first place. They were always just welfare parasites. Send them all back now.

  • Canadian

    Maybe we still have a chance. It`s minus 20, right now here.

  • Barrington Minge
