Riss is basically saying: Really? All refugees are bad? Even that innocent little boy?"
Oh please, mr.Riss, spare us from these primitive manipulations...
It’s a criticism of bigots — like Donald Trump and other conservatives in the U.S. — who think we should close off the borders to all refugees because they’re rapists or terrorists.
I'm also one of them (bigots) since i think one million of foreigners (mainly young men, not villing and unable to assimilate) per year is not a good thing for Germany... actually, this is rather a national catastrophe. And the only real way to avoid the further troubles is close borders until it is too late.
i actually think that mass migration isnt good for any country. but it seems that you are forgetting that these "rapefugees" migrated because of the war in syria. they did not went there just because they want to. they are trying to save themselves and their families. and in this context, of course there will be real clashes. branding refugees as rapists because less than 0.5% of the refugees are doing it would be like saying that all muslims are terrorist, all black guys are living in the projects smoking crack, all russians are prostitutes and pimps, all white guys are serial killers. branding refugees as rapist would not really help smoothen out the transition for both parties. this quite sudden event is inconvenient for the host country, but im with the govt on this one. i dont know how europe handles refugees but in our country we put them in a certain area first (during transition stage) to avoid the citizens from being overwhelmed with the sudden change and allow refugees to adjust and acculturize.
Ahem. Most of the Cologne rapist refugees (over 80% IIRC) were from Morocco and Algiers. Neither of those countries has ongoing wars, as far as I know.
Edit: fixed typo. It's Algiers, not Libya.
Aside from the egregious levels of subtle islamophobia and racism present in this thread, I want to comment that, of the 31 suspects identified by the Bundespolizei, 18 were asylum seekers. For the record, an asylum seeker does not equal refugee. For God's sake there was an American and 2 Germans among them. No one has implicated the American people, or German people because 2 of their nationals were involved in this. Why? Because it'd ludicrous to do so.
This case has to be seen separately from the Refugee 'Crisis'.
Pick up a history book and see how similar many comments here are to those made leading to countless acts of discriminatory violence throughout history. Classics like the Dreyfus Affair and the related European antisemitism in the 19th & 20th century come to mind. Now, ofcourse, given the respective biases, and ingrained attitudes I know my comment, like those of others preaching reason, will fall upon deaf ears. But it's worth a try.
Here is my source. I have multiple confirming the same thing, from reputable sources.
Here a quick summary on the Dreyfus Affair for those interested. Replace Jewish with Muslim.
