    Perhaps but I suspect the Syrian cohort they are talking about contains Christians, atheists and Muslims. Let's be honest , whether they're right or (as I believe) wrong, I think it's pretty clear what they're getting at. I don't think Buddhists are high on the agenda, for example.
    Are there any Syrian Jews left in Syria? I take it they wouldn't be welcome in Slovakia.

    I'd be surprised! If so they'd have the right to settle in Israel bypassing the general problems refugees have. Slovakia is probably more worried about the vibrant multiculturalism that is driving French Jews out.

    Interesting to see if an East / west Europe split emerges here. The former have been closer to the sharp end of life a lot more recently and for a lot longer. I suspect that shapes different perspectives.

    Ironic of PL to try and ban Muslims where in the distant past it was a haven of multiculturalism and all religions were welcome. But then again, we nailed the Turks at Vienna, not the 1st time we've saved europe.

    The city is now Hibernian

    Jeez, a lot of folk getting all hot under the collar on this one & yet not one post mentions why the Slovaks want to take this stance. It's not like they've just decided to anounce themselves as racists to the world.

    Slovakia is unquestionably going to be a transit country for Muslims. There is no sense in sending people there who will immediately try to get to Germany. With Christians & atheists they might actually integrate with Slovakian society, benefitting both that country and the EU (who wouldn't have to deal with/pay for these people not staying put).

    thats a bit presumptuous of them.
    Muslims might choose to settle there.
