A Prime Minister who is doing her job to protect citizens. If only we had a leader or a candidate who was brave enough to say, “No Muslim refugees or immigrants!” via: Poland Reneges on Pledge to Take 7,000 Migrants Following Brussels Attack
Poland has dropped its pledge to the European Union (EU) to take in 7,000 migrants, saying it cannot allow what happened in Brussels on Tuesday to be repeated in Poland. The Prime Minister has also called for talks at the EU level on countering the “plague” of radicalisation.
Speaking at the Belgian Embassy in Warsaw, where she laid flowers for the victims of Tuesday’s bomb attacks at an airport and metro station in Brussels, Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said: “We must put an end to terrorism in Europe. We must not be afraid.
“After what happened in Brussels yesterday, it’s not possible right now to say that we’re OK with accepting any number of migrants at all,” she told told Superstacja TV on Wednesday. “I will be very clear: at the moment, I don’t see a possibility for migrants to come to Poland.”
Her spokesman Rafal Bochenek, later told journalists that the government “can’t allow for events in western Europe to happen in Poland,” Bloomberg has reported.
Her words are a blow to the European Commission, which had struck a deal with the previous Polish government, along with other European member states, to take in thousands of the migrants flooding north from Greece and Italy.
Poland’s resolve to stand firm against unregulated migration therefore sets it apart from other European nations so far – the majority of European leaders have reacted to the attack by declaring their solidarity with Belgium, and their determination to stand up for liberal values.
An Israeli Knesset Member advised that Belgium and Europe should “Stop Muslim immigration” immediately, while Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull showed support for Poland’s position, criticising Europe’s “porous borders”.
“For all intents and purposes there are no internal borders in Europe and their external borders are difficult to manage,” Mr Turnbull told the Lowy Institute in Sydney.
Meanwhile Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has reiterated his calls for the same. “That’s how you prevent it, not allowing the people in,” he told Breitbart. “There has to be a moratorium. We have to find out what’s going on.”
In November, 100,000 Poles demonstrated against the Islamic invasion – described as the ‘largest demonstration in Polish history.’
