Augsburg – Germany.

A number of Syrian refugee families want to move away from the accommodation facilities at Otto Street. Some families have been creating problems for weeks: verbal attacks against social workers, brawls and destruction of property. Their argument is that in Lebanon, where they were first, employees from the UN told them that once in Germany, they would immediately be given homes. The situation escalated on Monday: three families threatened to spend the night in front of the town hall.

The city authorities are now trying to get help from the state and the administrative district in order to find homes (for them). This is not their task, but the pressure is great. But Peter Roos, the director of the department for social issues knows that “it will be hard to find something”. The families have up to 8 children, the adults speak neither German nor English, and some of them are really furious. Even those (social workers) who due to this kind of job have a lot of understanding got fed up in the end. Wolfgang D. Friedel, who is in charge of migrant issues at Caritas, said that: “Their behavior is rather disturbing”. Advisers had been right from the beginning looking after schools, healthcare etc… (for them). There is even a (Caritas) worker who is from Syria. But they remain stubborn. One of the men even plays the role of a sort of clan leader.

These Syrians are special status refugees. Because of the civil war and the precarious situation of 2.3 million refugees, the German Federal Republic announced that it would take 5000 of them. These (special status refuges) enjoy privileges over asylum seekers: they do not have to endure any procedures, they get more social services, have direct access to the job market and do not have to live in communal centres. Friedel, who has often been in the Middle East, supposes that bribes play a role when selecting (refugees), and only a certain group of people can afford this. “It is not the needy refugees who come to us”, he says. The Syrians from Otto Street also say that back in Lebanon they had homes and jobs. 

The accommodations in Otto Street are considered the best in Augsburg. The house, which was opened in November, had been renovated and fully equipped, for a refugee shelter this is considered lavish and generous. There are many employees there. The upper floor is for asylum seekers. The Syrian families live at the ground floor. They are some 40 people, packs of children run up and down the corridor; the decent but bare living spaces offer no noise protection, it’s loud there. Ahmed Safrani tries to explain how hard things are. They are well provided for, and the social workers are willing to help. But his 7-member family is distributed across two rooms. If a child gets ill, the others get the illness, too. “The adults can’t do anything in peace”.

After the janitor unlocked the learning room for children, the parents said that till then children were not allowed to enter it. The janitor emphasises that they were told about the possibility of asking for the keys, but nobody did. The organisation “Door to Door” began the supervision of homework activities yesterday. But Safrani does not want to stay. Returning to Lebanon is out of the question. He hopes that he can move to another federal region where there is more accommodation. For he sees no chances in Augsburg. “Door to Door” started in April the project “Move In” in order to help in the search for living places. There are 100 individuals on the list, but just a few have found one.

Where are the real Syrians? They are not coming to Europe as soldiers. That's for sure. Some of them can't even escape the terror of 1 400 years.

‘Oh Maria, Jozef!’, say Germans in the Catholic area’s of the country, when they hear something that sounds absurd and beyond any common sense. The story of the “unsatisfied new guests from Syria” belongs to the unbelievable. Let’s have a look into European history. Imagine the Huguenots, who had escaped France after the Bartholomew’s Night massacre (1572) had had the same demands? The Dutch, Germans and British had to give them nice big houses in a good neighbourhood; otherwise they would conduct verbal and physical attacks against social workers!!!. France was, through the centuries, the biggest deliverer of political asylum seekers and refugees. In WWI French soldiers had deserted the war in the trenches and come to the Netherlands. Non of them wanted to find here Eldorado. They only wanted to escape the war and find rest.
If the Syrian ‘refugees’ are so unsatisfied, that means one thing. THE WAR IN SYRIA IS NOT THAT BAD. There is no reason for them to stay in Germany or any other European country. The earlier the German authorities get rid of them the better for everyone. We are now in a deep economical crisis. If our leaders want some adventures, they can better take care of our own poor and not interact in a war between people with a mentality of Alligators like the Arabs.

When I was young, U.S. travelers were warned not to be "ugly Americans." ( Not to expect cold beer in 50's era Britain, etc, etc.) We should revive this standard and lecture immigrants about being "ugly Muslims!" - It's amazing to me that the politically correct continue to insist that Islam is not inherently Islamo-supremacist. Even those Europeans ignorant of the supremacist Islamic verses can quickly see supremacism in the Muslim arrogance they encounter every day.

Sounds good in theory, but their bible of hate tells them not to do that!

They probably lived in hovels in Syria. Now they are demanding hand-outs. Plain greed.
