The Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kamiński has made it clear that the Law and Justice (PiS) government is opposing migrant quotas going so far as calling migration “cultural experiments”.
At a conference on Monday, the Interior Minister talked about a letter sent to the European Commission by the Interior Minister of the Visegrad group – Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic as well as Estonia, Latvia and Slovenia. The letter concerned the Pact on Migration and Asylum.
“The Polish government will not accept mandatory illegal migrant relocations” said the Interior Minister, and saying that this is not because of xenophobia, but because of “common sense”.
“There is and will be no permission of the Polish government to impose on us any kind of social or cultural experiments” he said.
Talking about the situation in Western European countries, Kamiński pointed out that what he calls “experiments” of migration has lead to “tragic consequences”.
“How these types of experiments end, we can see on the example of many Western European countries, where there were significant clusters of people unrelated culturally, socially unrelated to the places where they reside. This leads to tragic consequences, social conflicts, racist and religious conflicts”.
As we have reported on at Times of Sweden, there has been a disturbing trend in Sweden recently where Swedish people are victims of humiliating and anti-Swedish racist attacks, with a former police officer saying “they target Swedes because they are timid”.
“We will see ethnic Swede’s starting vigilante groups unless we sort this out. If your own kids are affected, all rules of the game ceases” warned former police officer Mustafa Panshiri.
Comparing the rape statistics between Poland and Sweden we see a significant difference. In 2015, Poland had 3.2 rapes per 100 000 people. Meanwhile Sweden had a whopping 81.6 rapes per 100 000 people last year.
Another politician for the PiS party in Poland, Dominik Tarczynski, said in an interview last year that refugees need to flee to the first safe neighboring country, saying that “Poland is not a neighbor of Syria”.
“The whole migration crisis, it’s a global thing. Europe is not responsible for what is happening in Syria. Poland is not responsible for what is happening in Iraq, in Syria, in other places. We never had any colonies. So if this problem is a global problem, where is Saudi Arabia, where is Qatar, where are the other Arab countries, the rich Arab countries which should help?”
