Refugee crisis in Europe to spark another war in the Balkans

submit to reddit

German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that the decisions of EU member states to close their borders for migrants could spark a war in the Balkans. “I do not want it to lead to military clashes,” said Merkel, speaking at a conference in Darmstadt. What contradictions was Merkel speaking about? Are there big problems in the Balkans that may start a war in the region? Pravda.Ru asked an expert opinion from Georgy Engelhardt, a researcher at the Institute of Slavic Studies.

According to him, the statement from the German Chancellor was addressed to German and European audiences. Europe needs to make specific decisions to extricate from the migration crisis.

“Merkel resorted to making a threat in her statement, to add weight to her words. Serbia has been trying to direct the flow of refugees to its neighbor Croatia, and Croatia closes its borders in response and shower Belgrade with various statements,” said Georgy Engelhardt, noting that this leads to a crisis in the relations between the two countries.

According to the expert, there are tensions in the Balkans. “However, it would be an exaggeration to say that the tensions have developed to the point when armed clashes could be possible. At the same time, if the flow of migrants does not stop, and if Europeans do not find a solution to the crisis, this may lead to very serious consequences,” the researcher told Pravda.Ru.

Meanwhile, protests against the policy of open doors has been gathering pace in Germany. The PEGIDA movement (“European Patriots against the Islamization of the Old World”) holds mass rallies in Dresden and other German cities. Government media accuse PEGIDA leaders of the revival of Hitlerism. Georgy Engelhardt noted that such a problem exists: European politicians are unable to handle the refugee crisis. Instead of looking for solutions, they put their energy in media propaganda.

“European officials want Europeans to take refugees. They urge European people to show their humanity and support. They want the people of Europe to accept the idea of refugees living next door to them. These ideas can be heard in absolutely all media channels. Yet, the discontent of the population is growing. Those who say no to such suggestions face accusations of neo-Nazism. This is a very serious accusation in Germany that makes it possible to remove a political rival. If a German political activist is called an admirer of Hitler, this person will not have career in politics,” the expert told Pravda.Ru.

Meanwhile, an official representative of the German Ministry for Internal Affairs told reporters on November 5 that over the last ten months of 2015, 758,000 refugees have entered Germany (181,000 of them came to Germany in October).

    Why is it the responsibility of any European country to give these “refugees”(most are economic refugees) a better life? Europe has nothing to gain by letting or bringing these people in. Europe, your first and last obligation is to your people. What do the “refugees” have to offer? They bring nothing to the table.

    Why don’t muslim “asylum seekers” go to Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates , Oman, Saudi Arabia or any of the other rich muslim countries? These are Islamic countries therefore more suitable for them.

    Has any European country benefited by opening it’s borders to non-Europeans? Name one. Do they make Europe a safer place to live? Have they made Europe great? Are they good for tourism? Do they bring anything positive to Europe? Do they respect the citizens of Europe and the customs? Do they support themselves without burdening the tax payers? Do they burden the judicial system due to high crime rates? Do they love Europe or what they can get from her?

    Do they victimize the European people in large proportions to their small numbers? Wouldn’t crimes against the European people foreshadow their true intentions? Do they trash up the areas they inhabit in Europe? If they victimize the host country’s people and trash up their land after they have been given a new start at life, wouldn’t that be like a direct “screw you”? Do they demand you to change your ways and customs so they can tolerate you? Do they respect the peoples government? Your family? Your people? Your culture?

    If they are guilty of three of these questions then It would be safe to say they should not be in Europe. There is more harm than good for Europe and her people.

    If a European country don’t let the hoards flood their land they are called “racist” and “Nazis” if they let them in, their country, their lives, their descendants lives will be torn apart. Which one is easier to live with? Which one does the most damage? Which choice is beneficial to the European country and it’s people? Wake up before it’s too late.
