    The European media especially is aroar over this. How could an exiled religious leader make such an inhumane comment? Unbelievable.


    It makes no difference that he’s right on the spot. These mostly able-bodied males should be in their own countries working to restore and rebuild. Not cowering in foreign lands suck up the social welfare from those rightly entitled to it.


    The Dalai Lama made his remarks on Sept. 12 in Malmo, Sweden, which has a large immigrant population, reported the AFP. Malmo also has a major crime problem, largely due to the massive influx of immigrants from Middle Eastern and African countries. Malmo has been called the "rape capital of Europe."

    Speaking to the crowd, the Dalai Lama said of refugees, "Receive them, help them, educate them ... but ultimately they should develop their own country."

    "I think Europe belongs to the Europeans," he said, reported the AFP.

    Oh, will you calm down? The oldest bigot boogeyman in the book. Where are all your threads talking about teaching our American boys that No means No? Supporting the MeToo movement?
    Rape is as old as penises and as widespread, unfortunately. You don't give two shits about rape. You only care about smearing Muslims.

    Dalai Lama left Tibet voluntarily, as did the refugees in Europe.

    Everyone could have stayed in their countries & fought for their home lands.

    They did not.

    When war came to America did everyone run off, like a bunch of cowards, to some other nation?

    I see. So there should be no refugee problem, in your mind. The UN has determined that the planet is currently seeing the largest immigration crisis, worldwide, in history. People who are starving, people who are physically endangered, people who are being threatened for their religion or race or political beliefs are fleeing for safety. It is causing political instability and economic problems everywhere.

    Maybe finding ways to mitigate the problems they are fleeing from would be a better approach than simply damning them as cowards, which is both unrealistic and unfair.

    War is the problem. People need to say & fight, if they want freedom. Of course, staying & fighting is not a guarantee of freedom but life holds no guarantees to any people. Some people stay & they fight. Others? They run.
