Village Buys Off Refugees

laitman_766_1In the News (Daily Mail): “One of Europe’s wealthiest villages is refusing to accept any asylum seekers – and has instead voted to pay a fine of £200,000.

“Fears women and children could be at risk from sex attacks as well as the disruption to their peaceful way of life has led the super-rich of Switzerland’s alpine resort of Oberwil-Lieli to vote ‘no’ in a referendum to accept just ten migrants.

“The picturesque village, where 300 millionaires make up 2,200 population, they all used their financial muscle to reject a Government imposed quota.

“Some of Oberwil-Lieli’s wealthiest residents even offered to personally foot part of the fine being imposed by the Swiss authorities for refusing to house refugees.

“‘We do not want them here it is as simple as that,’ one resident of the village told MailOnline.

“‘We have worked hard all our lives and have a lovely village that we do not want it spoiled. We are not suited to take in refugees. They would not fit in here.’

“Surrounded by lush green pastures and with stunning views of the snow-capped Alps in the distance, the twin villages of Oberwil and Lieli would not look out of place on the front of a box of chocolates. …

“The roads are spotlessly clean, gardens are immaculately kept and despite its proximity to the country’s major city Zurich of 10 miles there is little traffic.

“Add a zero crime rate and it is not hard to see why homes in the villages cost upwards of £1million with many others worth three times as much.

“It is this idyll that villagers, a mixture of retirees and young families, voted to keep fearing an influx of migrants would change their way of life.”

My Comment: If we wanted to live in a normal, serene, beautiful, and quiet city where most of the population are wealthy Christians and Catholics, and suddenly poor Muslims join us with a different culture, language, religion, and mentality, naturally we wouldn’t want to accept them.

If the overwhelming majority of the local residents don’t want the refugees, the government has no right to force them. It cannot go against the people. Otherwise, why does it exist?

Question: How can Europe control the avalanche of refugees?

Answer: Only by introducing a rigid integral education that speaks about the unification of all people into one supra-national, supra-religious whole, above all differences between people, according to the general rule, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18).

Question: Is it possible to introduce this strictly?

Answer: If people want to live together, what else can be suggested to them? It only can be like this.

Question: One way or another, we see that everything is happening under an unseen management. What is the idea of a higher power that is directing the refugees toward Europe?

Answer: In this way, the Creator is pushing us toward correction so that we would understand that this is not the way.
In any case, we will have to begin to learn and engage in integral education.
