Hello, Refugees!

Reader comment on item: Merkel's Historic Folly

Submitted by Solomon2 (United States), Aug 29, 2017 at 13:59

Hello, Refugees! is the title of Tuvia Tenenbom's latest book. Have you read it, Dr. Pipes? He writes that the net influx of refugees basically halted after Merkel cut a deal with Turkey over a year ago. The refugees he met are mostly cooped up, unemployed, bored, and sometimes terrified by violent extremists who may be housed in the same facilities. While the Germans may be motivated by misplaced guilt, smug superiority, and media-mandated politically correct group-think, there is much less indication that Germany is actually being swamped by its immigrants than two or three years ago.
