Sanity Prevails In Poland After Paris Attacks: This Is What They Will Do About Syrian Refugees

Not all of Europe is crazy. After the Paris attacks, Poland has announced that they won’t be accepting the European Union’s quotes on refugees.

Poland’s new government won’t accept migrant quotas imposed by the European Union, as the terror attacks in France have exposed the weakness in the bloc, the nation’s future minister for European affairs said.

“In the wake of the tragic events in Paris, Poland doesn’t see the political possibilities to implement a decision on the relocation of refugees,” Konrad Szymanski was quoted as saying on Wpolityce.pl website on Saturday. “The attacks mean there’s a need for an even deeper revision of the European policy regarding the migrant crisis.”

Szymanski’s rejection of the EU quotas hours after Paris was rocked by terrorist attacks underscore the divide among governments in the bloc over the influx of Middle Eastern migrants. His Law & Justice party will take power in Poland this week after winning last month’s general election on a campaign that tapped into concerns among the country’s conservative Catholic base that too many Muslims are arriving in Europe.

It’s kind of nice to see that at least somewhere, common sense still rules. How many innocent people have to die before the rest of the continent catches on?
