Niklas Orrenius article on the IS bestial abuse yazidier is required reading. You feel physically ill when you take part of the interviewed Jamilas story about how her fellow-prisoner, served his own children as meat with rice. It chopped off bebishuvudet lying in the middle of the plate.
Jamila now live in Sweden with her husband, who also managed to get here. But her father and brother were murdered when the ICE in the summer of 2014 conquered her home village in northern Iraq. Now that she tells you what she and other yazidier been subjected to during the genocide is important. To remember the victims. In order to draw lessons. For it not to happen again.
the Holocaust. It has always been difficult for me to understand why not more free countries gave shelter to jews before and during the second world war. The nazis made no secret of the persecution and the ”final solution”.
Still have not escaped the six million jews to death. Partly because it many times is difficult to escape, not least from the occupied and war-torn areas. On one hand, for often there is a resistance in the world against receiving the refugees.
Then, as now.
Our continent, with sky-high prosperity, security, and a half a billion inhabitants, can receive more than it does today.
it is true that It not only came yazidiska survivors in the autumn of 2015, when hundreds of thousands of people went on foot through Europe, away from war and atrocities. It is true that the EU cannot accept the earth 65 million refugees. But our continent, with sky-high prosperity, security, and a half a billion inhabitants, can receive more than it does today.
infanns however, a consensus in Sweden that the only realistic is to say stop and the evidence. It was no longer possible – for the social worker went on his knees, the children got to stand longer in the queue to BUP and it was not good enough accommodation for the asylum seekers.
Fears radades up: The asylum seekers either taking our jobs – or expect that we're going to support them through contributions. The taxpayer can not. And the unaccompanied afghan boys raping Swedish girls.
Sweden was no longer hjärterum or stjärterum for refugees.
if Jamilas and her arma medsystrars ows, one should have in mind that today's ”realistic” immigration policy means that nor are they deemed to have a place in Sweden. We have now the EU's strictest asylum policy, border controls, and no plans to soften the rules.
Reasonable? Fair? Realistic?
No. It is in fact unrealistic to think that the world will never be plagued by war and genocide that spills over on the rest of the world. Therefore, a mental and practical readiness to receive the many people in need, paired with an understanding of – and indeed a tolerance – that the reception will not be perfect.
It is oempatiskt and detached from reality to not see the victims. They are. A few are here. Jamila is one of them.
It is oempatiskt and detached from reality to not see the victims. They are. A few are here. Jamila is one of them. Taking in her testimony. Consider that the vast majority of the displaced from Syria living in tented camps in Turkey or on the street in Lebanon. The EU countries do not want to have hit them.
It is the brutal truth.
