Bizarre decisions by a bizarre corrupted state. What else can you expect from a state ruled by socialist ideologues for over six decades? KGS
NOTE: You would think that allowing Christian refugees -who are actually being persecuted by Muslims in the ME- a safe haven in Christian Europe would be a no brainer. But for the Leftist morons who unfortunately run key bureaucratic departments in many of the EU’s member states, they would rather have Muslims.
Even the UN called them out on this one. “Five Iraqi Christians seeking asylum returned from Stockholm. UN protest,” from AsiaNews, December 18:
Baghdad (AsiaNews / Agencies) – Harsh criticism of the Swedish government by the United Nations Commission for Refugees after they forcibly returned five Iraqi Christians seeking asylum in Sweden. The five were part of a group of at least 20 people from Iraq. Thousands of Christians have sought a safe haven outside the borders after the massacre of 31 October in the Syrian Catholic Cathedral of Our Lady of Salvation. According to unofficial sources the authorities justify the refusal by citing a situation of relative peace in the country.
Perhaps those authorities would like to go for a field trip and enjoy the “relative peace” the remaining Christians are living in.
“We have heard many stories of people fleeing their homes after receiving direct threats. Many new arrivals explain that they left Iraq for fear of an attack, after what happened on October 31,” says Melissa Fleming, spokeswoman for the UN body in Geneva.
“Some might take only a few things with him,” adds Fleming. The deportation of the five Iraqi Christians took place a week after a suicide bomber, born in Iraq and resident in Great Britain, blew himself up in central Stockholm.
