    I know it is selfish and disgusting, but i would only allow a Christian Syrian into my home, having said that, i think we should only allow christian syrians as they are even being persecuted in .

    If even the middle eastern countries are refusing to take in so called Muslim 'refugees' and these 'refugees' are not happy in the beautiful, islamic, industrial brilliantly working economic machine that is turkey, that HAS to tell you something about their motives.

    A good majority of them actually do stay in turkey, about 2.5 million, and a further 2 million across Lebanon and Jordan. the ones who are creating this fracas in trying to cross to Europe are not 'refugees' at that point. They are economic migrants, or worse, unsatisfied and demanding entitled opportunists.
    That's disgusting.

    That is their personal choice. No need to integrate and just have a unified culture. I see Americanisation of the whole world when i travel. It's not great.
    In an ideal perfect world, we would have people of different cultures living together peacefully.

    In the real world, cultural differences/ lack of respect causes fear, segregation, increased racial/religious tension (like what's happening now).

    I think it's important to integrate (my opinion).

    So you would support the "ghettoes" that form in the UK? Entire towns such as Hounslow and Bradford are overrun by a large population of non-English speaking migrants. When you walk down the street there, nobody speaks English!
    Do you think this happens in Iraq? No!

    Americanisation of the world is the promotion of commercialism, more consumerism and fast food etcetera.
    Nobody is stopping this sort of cultural integration - but Americanisation of the world does not involve the movement of people en masse that share a different culture that is intolerant to our British values of democracy, integration and tolerance (for example of homosexuality).
    How can you support the en masse "import" of people that come from regimes where free speech is banned, insulting Islam is punishable by death and homosexuality is illegal?

    I disagree that fear, isolation or whatever is done through the powerful invested interests in the media, discrimination (creating ghettos), economic cycles.

    Recession = everyones more racist
    Couple of billionaires want more oil = more racist media
    Discrimination = Ghettos which increase isolation

    People are just people at the end of the day.

    Their religion is their life, so why not go somewhere where everyone's religion is their life also? like, i don't know, turkey? the very islamic country you tried to escape?

    Didn't Christians use to be the same way? Not sure why they should be persecuted for following their religion. Sounds silly. Jealous much.

    Does not take a genius to come up with those points. I'm not here to educate by the way.

    I shall continue my support for more help for migrants! We should take the lot.

    You've gone beyond sounding silly now, you have entered the realms of ridiculous with your lack of comprehension. let me spell it out for you:

    You are a muslim, do you

    a) try to escape a bustling prosperous islamic country like turkey

    or

    b) run to a christian based going towards atheism/agnostic country where you will refuse to integrate and instead start complaining about racism no matter how many benefits you get?

    Please, enlighten us as to your choice.

    You go wherever you will have the most economic opportunity. Simple.

    Turkey can hardly take 4m migrants alone. UK for example has many muslims/christians already so they probably have family ties as with OP.

    Have you been to turkey mate? I'm guessing not. Actually I'm not even guessing, i KNOW you haven't.

    Turkey is flipping hot pot of opportunities, businesses are thriving there, its the Islamic centre of business, more so than Dubai and any other middle eastern state.

    Turkey is an economic monster. Sophisticated, well run, well oiled and boisterous. There is absolutely NO REASON, I repeat, NO REASON WHATSOEVER as to why someone would want to 'escape' from turkey.

    Once they want to leave turkey, you KNOW they are just waving the flag of refugee for their own benefit and don't want to knuckle down and make something of themselves the honest way.

    What's being surrounded by Muslims got to do with it? I myself am a Christian. So now foreigners can't live on British soil?
    Ah. I assumed your support for an Arab state was from being Muslim. Apologies.

    I support high immigration.. But from people who wish to be British. Having no allegiance to the country is why we get segregation. Look at black people born here for example, much more accepted because they make an effort to have British friends and adopt our norms.

    I've been. Not enough to take 4m migrants alone. Even the US would struggle.
