Methinks you are being rather obtuse, what?

You have not stated whether or not YOU can tell the difference, from a distance or in passing, between the Eritreans YOU know and those you don`t, or even the difference between those you do know (?) Can you? From a few hundred meters away? In the dark? Same as you can tell the difference between Europeans?

Of course the various cultures recognize each other - duh!- just as the Arabian women covered in black veils are able to recognize each other out in the streets. They are accustomed to something-or-other about themselves.
I am speaking about Europeans in Europe being able to tell the difference (for identification purposes) of these foreign cultures.

Swiss farmers? They all have different sized bodies, bellies, postures, hair coloring/styles, hats, clothing, shoes. And tractors. Totally different if they were all tall, skinny, black, wearing identical clothing, iPhones glued to heads.
Groan from Odile, as usual, but for what does she protest to in my posting? Would be nice to know why I offended someone, or if it`s just a knee-jerk reaction to anything I write?

Was it asking member to answer a question?
Was it about Arabian women being able to recognise each other under veils?
Was it the Swiss farmers?
Or maybe my description of my Ethiopian/Eritrean brothers?

Re: refugees in bunkers

Not at all- I never groan a 'person' but a particularly offensive post, whomever it comes from. In this case on two counts - your comments on Eritreans all looking the same and 'they' being part of a Mafia- again all lumped together - as if all Italians are part of the Mafia, or all Sicilians. Which is totally out of order.

As is the comment that MathNut is 'obtuse' for finding the above comments unacceptable. I've rarely met someone less 'obtuse' than MathNut btw.

Self-censorship is the key word here.
Do you understand a single word of German?


I posted a link that provided proof that a bunch of German media reported about assaults at Cologne Hbf the very January 1st 2016.


So foreigners - consulting media of less free countries than Germany - cannot simply troll that German media wouldn't cover the fact.


Simply ridiculous.

Obtuse you seem to choose to remain?

Can`t understand my written words?
And for this, I'll groan again.

As far as South Africa- well yes- the Afrikaaners certainly knew how to discern between different races and ethnic groups - specialists you could call them
Not sure how old you are, but 1991 was not long ago - even my kids were teenagers and my eldest at Uni.

Wrong.
Check up your info before giving credit to the media of countries that - according to Free Press Index - are less free than those in Germany.
https://index.rsf.org/#!/

#11 Ireland 11.2
#12 Germany 11.47

So once again your entire post - start to finish is factually wrong - even from your own sources.

In this case however it is the children of your country that are suffering - not that you give a shit about it.

Control most of the Anglo-Saxon countries and those you post your trashy links from, please.


Besides, ask an Irishman if he considers himself Anglo-Saxon.




And who, following your the RSF link, has more press liberty?


Germany or GB, USA, Australia ... all those you continously quote from, and - worse - believe in.


Quite naive, actually.


But fits very well with the stereotype the Swiss have of foreigners.

You must learn to behave in this country. After all, you are a guest. Exactly like all other refugees.

Asylum is a constitutional right in all Continental European countries.


Immigration for economic causes, like in your case, is not.


You are not worth an inch more than a refugee, and nobody would be.

I am not an economic migrant. Nor have I ever said that I'm better than a refugee.

Your bigotry is affecting your reading comprehension.

So why are you claiming that refugees are illegal by definition, but you wouldn't?

Apart that you are an ex-refugee ,

why wouldn't I have much hope that you could even manage to behave, even if you tried?
