Yesterday, one day after the Islamic terrorist massacres in Brussels, Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło announced that her government had reversed course and would no longer be willing to take in any of the “refugees” that had been assigned to Poland as part of Merkel’s Folly.
- After the attacks in Brussels, the Polish government is sharpening its stance concerning the acceptance of immigrants from the Middle East — “I do not see a possibility for immigrants to come to Poland at this moment,” underlined Prime Minister Beata Szydło, in a conversation with Superstacja TV.
- “The previous government declared that it will take part in the acceptance of immigrants. It agreed for several thousand people to be taken in by Poland, of its own free will,” Prime Minister Beata Szydło said in a conversation with Grzegorz Jankowski.
- “28 EU member states agreed to tackle this problem using resettlement. However, I will state very clearly: I do not see a possibility for migrants to come to Poland,” underlined the Prime Minister.
Green Infidel adds his own observations:
From what I can see, this declaration sounds very much like the declaration by the Polish government after the Paris attacks in November. At that time it was also stated that Poland would not accept any immigrants. However, after an outcry in the EU, a few days later the government changed its mind. Later on, its stance became “We need to fulfil the previous government’s obligations,” and it agreed to accept its quota of “refugees”.
Currently the Polish government is under great pressure from the EU regarding changes to its constitutional court and state TV. Under the pretext of “defending democracy”, sanctions have been threatened by the EU — and my rather skeptical guess is that if the EU notices this latest statement (which undoubtedly it will) and protests, after a few days the government will backtrack, and quietly revert to their previous stance and agree to accept the refugee quota, just like after the Paris attacks… However, perhaps I’m being overly-pessimistic.
Besides, contrary to what Szydło implies, “immigrants” are already in Poland — in Warsaw, on almost every major street corner there are Muslim-run kebab shops, while many other Muslims come in as students, and others enter from the borderless Schengen area.
While Poland may not have the levels of enrichment of Molenbeek in Brussels, it’s also not a closed kingdom, and I’m not yet convinced that Szydło is another Orban. She is generally regarded as a puppet for her party leader, Jaroslaw Kaczynski. In contrast with Orban, Kaczynski has always been very unpopular, and perhaps the only reason his party won the election so convincingly was that the previous government was regarded as being too close to the EU on migration. However, many people are also not convinced of this government’s competence, and I’m becoming concerned not only with the 7,000 migrants that Poland is due to accept, but also the long, porous and largely undefended and remote border that Poland shares with the Ukraine. If the “refugees” can’t reach Merkel’s Promised Land via the Balkans, will they try via the Ukraine and Poland? If that happens, the number reaching Poland might not be 7,000 but a few million. Again — I hope I’m wrong.

|00:11||It agreed that several thousand people could end up in Poland, on a voluntary basis,|
|00:17||as this is very important for us to underline,|
|00:21||that we, continuing these declarations|
|00:25||just like the other 27 countries of the EU…|
|00:30||So 28 EU countries agreed to solve the migration problem by resettlement.|
|00:42||To try to resolve this issue, which is the number one issue in Europe.|
|00:50||But I say very clearly:|
|00:54||I do not see a possibility for migrants to come to Poland, at this moment in time.
