Polish Government Want To Turn Syrian Refugees Into Liberation Army

Polish Government

Syrian refugees should train to become an army that could go back and “liberate their country” according to the Polish government.

Polish Foreign Minister, Witold Waszczykowski, suggested the strategy as a means of gaining employment and a permanent solution to the Syrian refugee crisis and the civil war.

The Daily Express reports:

The suggestion came from the Polish Foreign Minister, Witold Waszczykowski, who told the country’s public broadcaster that it would be a useful way for Syrians to gain employment, instead of ‘sipping coffee’ in the streets of Berlin.

He said:”Tens of thousands of young men disembark from their rubber dinghies with iPad in hand and instead of asking for drink or food, they ask where they can charge their cellphones.”

Mr Waszczykowski added: “They can go to fight to liberate their country with our help.”

Poland’s newly elected right-wing government has been vociferous in its opposition to Europe taking in any more refugees from Syria and other parts of the Middle East, especially after the Paris terrorist attacks last Friday which killed at least 129 people.

Earlier this week, the country’s incoming European Affairs Minister, Konrad Szymanski, said in the wake of the tragic events in Paris it was not “politically possible” for Europe to continue to house Syrian refugees. Polish Government
