Eloquent Young Refugee Mother Explains Wishes For Her Daughter

Video: https://www.facebook.com/skynews/vid...4329229248339/

This is just so scary - this woman is clearly very intelligent and has clearly lost a lot as a result of war.
She wants what is best for her child, and is looking out for her daughter more so than for herself.

No more money, no more food.
You look at her child and at her, and can't picture yourself in their shoes.

It just makes you wish you could do *something*
Thanks from Camelot

Why do you feel the need to get personal with this poster ? He/she merely made a humane observation. What's wrong with you ?

If you haven't noticed, the vast majority of refugees are men. More than willing to evacuate their own country and find a country with the most entitlements. Rather than staying and fighting for their own country. Where are they headed? That would be Germany with the highest entitlement system. What happens when tens of thousands of Muslims enter Germany and refuse to adopt the German culture? The economic and criminal drain will take it's toll. We see that here in our own country.
Thanks from imaginethat, roastpork and kbear

How many refuges are being taken in by Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Bosnia, or Iran, my guess is none. We have no obligation to take in any of them, the Arab states have plenty of room and money. The Germans are just trying to make amends for WWII atrocities, IMHO.

Still irrelevant to the opening thread post. Your hatred overcomes you.

This is an argument? Wow.
I don't run the country, as better of as it'd be in my hands.

The answer is not nearly enough, which is why I'm one of many advocating for more.

The stupider end of the conservative spectrum have an ignorant and irrational hate for Muslims...Just for being Muslim.
That could be something.

That wasn't a guess, RP. You know they're taking none in.
This crisis is ample opportunity for countries to show just how humanitarian they really are - do you want yours to show how cold in the face of human suffering they are?
Actually don't answer that, 'my guess' is that you don't actually give a shit.

Australia has curtailed it's immigration numbers for a reason. What would that reason be?

Now there's that "pro-life" god fearing born again evangelical hatred that's been destroying this nation for over 40 years.
