Donald Tusk: 'Turkey best example of how to treat refugees' - BBC News
Yeah, let us become like Turkey. Let us give all refugees guest status, ban them from working, not give them access to our welfare system, do not allow their kids go to our schools, give them only enough for food, and host them in terrible tent camps.
IMO, this turkey deal just show how pathetic EU has become.
WTH are you on about here?
If there's anything pathetic in this issue, it's how the overall EU compares to Turkey wrt handling of the refugee crisis. That's actually what Tusk is certainly implying if not actually critically outlining.
Whatever one may think of Erdogan and his bunch (and I'm absolutely no friend of that lot), spouting forth on the less than optimal plight that Turkey offers the refugees (because that is in most cases all it can
offer) is pretty hypocritical when a sizeable number of EU countries refuse to even take any one
of them. Or, in those cases where a certain number is teeth-grittingly accepted, taking a ridiculously small number.
Apart from which you might wish to inform yourself better on the overall situation of Syrian refugees in Turkey. The claim that they're all interned in camps is pure hogwash (round about 10 pct are actually in camps). That they're banned from working is pure hogwash. That the kids are banned from attending schools is pure hogwash. On the contrary, Turkey provides schooling in Arabic, free of charge. It provides medical aid free of charge.
That's not even mentioning that the Turkish people hold nowhere near the xenophobia that rules within the EU, from "Easterners" that show it in blatant openness like Poland and Hungary, to those desperately trying to moderate the apparent like Germany, to those that pee themselves the moment somebody in Calais coughs.:roll:
The million refugees of last year that your ilk go into paranoid frenzy over are nothing compared to the at least two and a half million that are in Turkey at this moment.
What definitely IS pathetic is spouting forth on a situation one clearly has not taken the slightest trouble in investigating upon, to then present a post as unthinking as this one quoted above.
