    Thanks for the data. The proportion dying at sea is honestly a lot less than it seems. 309 dead/missing at sea in 2016 out of 54,518 sea arrivals in 2016 alone.

    It is 57% men, 27% children and 17% women. So it really isn't the 90% people say it is and most of the people are from Syria and Afghanistan, places which produce refugees. Only 2% are from Nigeria, Pakistan etc where more economic migrants are likely.
    And I think the men are disproportionately represented due to safety and expense of the journey. It would be different if the transport to Europe was being handled properly. I hope that a lot of these men are genuine refugees and are planning to get their wives and children over them legally after they settle but who knows.

    However there are likely to be a lot of economic migrants or ISIS disguised among these refugees which is causing the problems and skepticism of the genuity of the vast majority of refugees who are in Europe and waiting to hopefully come here.

    I don't know why you lot are so pro-Israel I thought it was common knowledge that they plotted the destruction of Europe and White genocide long ago?


    Why support the enemies of your people?
    Israel has genocidal lunatics as leaders, people think thats it biblical are thick and don't realize that Israel refers to a group of people and not a state.

    Can you explain their motives?
