Turning away widows and orphans?
Via Daily Mail:
US Secretary of State John Kerry has warned that the mass influx of refugees and other migrants into Europe spells a ‘near existential threat’ to the continent.
‘We are facing the gravest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II,’ he said at the Munich Security Conference, which has been dominated by the Syrian conflict which is driving the mass flight.
‘The United States understands the near existential nature of this threat to the politics and fabric of life in Europe,’ he told the meeting.[…]
Kerry said about the refugee influx: ‘We are not saying, ‘This is your problem, not ours’. This is our problem.’
‘And that is why we are joining now and enforcing a NATO mission to close off a key access route,’ he said of an alliance naval surveillance mission off Turkey and Greece.
‘And we will join you in other ways to stem this tide because of the potential of its damage to the fabric of a united Europe,’ said Kerry.
He praised German Chancellor Angela Merkel for showing ‘great courage in helping so many who need so much’ and European communities who are taking in those fleeing the violence and ‘rejecting intolerance and racism’ within their societies.
