My problem isn't as much the western world being blamed for the problems, but the article is stuff like this.
In escaping their war-torn homelands, the refugees are possessed by a dream. Refugees arriving in southern Italy do not want to stay there: many of them are trying to get to Scandinavia. The thousands of migrants in Calais are not satisfied with France: they are ready to risk their lives to enter the UK. Tens of thousands of refugees in Balkan countries are desperate to get to Germany. They assert their dreams as their unconditional right, and demand from the European authorities not only proper food and medical care but also transportation to the destination of their choice. There is something enigmatically utopian in this demand: as if it were the duty of Europe to realise their dreams – dreams which, incidentally, are out of reach of most Europeans (surely a good number of Southern and Eastern Europeans would prefer to live in Norway too?). It is precisely when people find themselves in poverty, distress and danger – when we’d expect them to settle for a minimum of safety and wellbeing – that their utopianism becomes most intransigent. But the hard truth to be faced by the refugees is that ‘there is no Norway,’ even in Norway.
It is not inherently racist or proto-fascist for host populations to talk of protecting their ‘way of life’: this notion must be abandoned. If it is not, the way will be clear for the forward march of anti-immigration sentiment in Europe whose latest manifestation is in Sweden, where according to the latest polling the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats have overtaken the Social Democrats as the country’s most popular party. The standard left-liberal line on this is an arrogant moralism: the moment we give any credence to the idea of ‘protecting our way of life’, we compromise our position, since we’re merely proposing a more modest version of what anti-immigrant populists openly advocate. And this is indeed the cautious approach that centrist parties have adopted in recent years. They reject the open racism of anti-immigrant populists, but at the same time profess that they ‘understand the concerns’ of ordinary people, and so enact a more ‘rational’ anti-immigration policy.
From the danish news.
Europe is reacting based on past experience and the fact that there already are growing groups of Salafist's, who want Sharia and are actively trying to work against the legal system and foundation of which the societies have been build, so they can get it. As well as the fact the current integrations problems, which we haven't solved so adding more people won't solve the problem, but more than likely put more wood on the fire. The european society is build on free speech and the right to do and act like you do as you please, with in reason. We have immigrants who spit and yell at women, whom they believe is not dressing like they believe they should.
Cities like Paris have HUGE problems with immigrant unemployment, crime and radicalism, this goes as far as 3rd generation, which is completely insane, as they are children of children who are born in the country, so they shouldn't need integration.
The swedish population has started to react, as their government represents a smaller and smaller segment of the population and most of the immigration problems are being silenced to death, which really won't solve them. There was a big debacle recently due to the council in Stockholm putting up posters warning people not to give Roma's money, as they were giving money to organized crime.
There are 55 areas / cities in Sweden where the police won't enter unless they are in full force and there has riots because of youth unemployment in the immigrant communities, they even lit cars on fire, as that would magically make jobs appear.
The swedish policies are directly opposite of the danish ones, but they still have same problem, so one can't help to think it's not the policies, but the people.
Danish police is also being chastised in the international media, for not just looking away and letting the refugees do as they please and for being the ONLY country in the EU actually holding up the Geneva convention and Dublin Treaty, which is completely ridiculous.
