Situation in Syria (debate)
MPphoto
 

  Nick Griffin (NI). - Madam President, unlike the others in this debate I have gone twice to war-torn Syria to see at first hand what is really going on there. So I can tell you that the majority of the refugees do not want or need to come to Europe. They just want the West to leave the Syrian army to finish off the Islamist terror gangs from whom the Christians, Alawites and moderate Sunnis fled for their lives. Then they will be able to go home.

The Wahhabi minority should go to their Gulf State sponsors, where they too would be at home.

I can also tell you that, having used the CIA to help the rebels destroy so much of Syria, American and French corporations are already in contact with Damascus to negotiate multi-billion-dollar reconstruction contracts. While the EU and Mr Farage unite to import a wave of violently Islamist asylum seekers to already poor and stressed parts of our constituencies, American and French companies are chasing profits for big business, as usual.
