We refugees don't want to live in the same country with you

I just finished Douglas Murray's The Strange Death of Europe with a very heavy heart, but also I am grimly delighted that a leading British writer, completely respectable and widely respected, has stated clearly and very perceptively the problem Europe faces. 

But I cannot see a huge change in opinion coming quickly enough to save things.

Two pages before the end of the book is this story.

In the meantime elected officials and bureaucrats continue to do everything they can to make the situation as bad as possible as fast as possible. In October 2015 there was a public meeting on the small city of Kassel in the state of Hesse. Eight hundred immigrants were due to arrive in the following days and concerned residents had a meeting to ask questions of their representatives. As the video recording of the meeting shows, citizens were calm, polite but concerned. Then at a certain point their district president, one Walter Lubcke, calmly informs them that anybody who does not agree with the policy is‘ free to leave Germany’. You can see and hear on the tape the intake of breath, amazed laughter, hoots and finally shouts of anger. Whole new populations are being brought into their country and they are being told that if they don’t like this they are always free to leave. Do not politicians in Europe realise what could happen if they continue to treat European people like this?
Douglas Murray  ends The Strange Death of Europe with a quotation from Aras Bacho, an 18 year-old Syrian refugee in Germany. On the internet a longer quotation is available from Der Freitag, October 2016, as follows. 

"We refugees... do not want to live in the same country with you. You can, and I think you should, leave Germany. And please take Saxony and the Alternative for Germany (AfD) with you.... Why do you not go to another country? We are sick of you!"
