    "We are surely living in the last days right now"

    Where have I ever heard that before? Oh, I know. That is the appropriate "JW-party line" response to any and all bad news. The problem is, it has never been true, that is at least until now ...

    It's true, Doomsday IS coming!

    Message to all: "You are safe - City Vienna"

    Hungarian Orban inscenated a concept of enemies using the refugees! Hungarys image is destroyed.
    What he claimed that a flood of refugees attacks europe, and he produces the suitable pictures of xenophobic ideology. Hungary again stopped bus transport to austria, now againg new ones are beginning their march to Austria. Now there are coming thousand, perhaps there will be yet ten thousands, but with the right management austria will cope with the situation.

    Some pictures of our syrian brothers, havent most of us been refugees of a totalitarian regime? How happy they are to be safe.,1207539

    A border fence and physical mistreatment of refugees is no solution and is inhuman

    Muslim community helps. We have appr 600.000 muslims in austria, in vienna 216.000. In my town I have many muslim neighbours, the christian syrian refugees are heritants of the christian beginning. Syria, Damascus was the frist state that became christian, many syrian speak the language of jesus.

    Austrian aid organsion transports via truck food and medicine to the greece border town where refugees need care and tries to help in hungary.

    No I am not fond of Islam , but one thing in all of this make me somewhat happy. And that is when I read about the help those refugees actually receives from usual people. For instance in my country there has been a big fundraising recently. And I think that disproves the JW teaching that there is no love in the world.

    You are absolutely right.

    The BBC has a new name for migrants, refugees in Germany: " newcomers" and why not?

    Germany had welcome millions of expelled DPs in the post-war ethnic cleansing from Russia, Poland, Szechoslovakia, the balkans, so they are now just casting a wider net.

    just remember Germany is the Israel of Europe, For Napoleon to go to Moscow, he had to travel through germany , and Russia would have loved to get it's ice-free harbour in it's thrust past berlin. A country nibbled at from all sides.

    So the country is welcoming newcomers, beefing up it's population, but, could also have done it through copulation.

    prologos, I was quite chuffed to see that yesterday the BBC also described the migrant infux as an epic journey as this resonates with my depiction of a parallel between Aeneas' journey to Italy and the refugee journey from Turkey to Europe on page 5 of this thread.

    Here's my limited solution to part of the problem. In the UK there seems to be a steady stream of Muslims determined to join ISIS in Syria. Yet our govt. spend a lot in funds to either prevent/retrieve them. Let them leave the UK with a proviso. Freeze all their assets into one large fund. Let them go, then allow one-for-one into the country, and finance their resettlement with confiscated monies/assets. Plus of course helping others to a safer life.

    Good idea, Je.suis.oisif.

    Plus, those who have joined ISIS must never be allowed back into Britain.

    the UK gov is considering whether to use what it sets aside for foreign aid to help alleviate the plight of migrants/refugees. I think this may solve a number problems.

    another solution put forward by people interviewed on the street was to take in a refugee family into our homes if we have the space. I think the pope suggested that each european parish could take in a refugee family
