The Refugee issue after the Paris attacks

After the Paris attacks of last weekend many countries have not lost time pronouncing themselves about the so called Islamic State. Some countries have only publically condemned the ISIS, however, some others such as France and Russia have joined to attack Syria and ISIS bases. The response to the Paris attacks can also be seen in new, worrying reactions to the refugees’ issue. In Europe, a number of governments who had already been taking steps to fortify borders with fences are now bound to reject the European Union’s plan to distribute refugees on an equitable basis. In the same way, several US have forbidden the entrance of refugees inside their borders for “the protection of their citizens”. Confusing the refugees with terrorists and scorning them is not only morally wrong and would betray our much championed values and principles, but would undoubtedly strengthen ISIS themselves.
