How do you know they will not all win the lotto ?? Same logic.

Statistics tell a pretty clear story.
No doubt you have a link to credible statistics or is it just your opinion?

It was you who raised the objection - it's up to you to provide a source on any of your many claims e.g. only one of the over 5m foreign nationals is a drug dealer.

I did not raise any objection??
I was simply curious and asked for a link to your statistics; it is clear it does not exist.

Poor attempt at spinning my post.
I did not make any claims?
I simply stated a fact "We know one of them became a drug dealer."
Where did I post "only one of the over 5m foreign nationals is a drug dealer"?

Now who was it was asking about reading comprehension

Stop spamming :


BTW as kriss kross pointed out but you wilfully ignored - the chief defendant in the murder trial had ALREADY been turned down on his asylum decision.

Here is the latest and most up to date graph from Eurostat which shows less than 40% of applicants are rejected.
Unlike your graph which shows over 80% are rejected; as you "conveniently" left off the heading we do not know the provenance of your graph

Here is the link for my graph

To be fair though the migrant thread was shut down after the leftists ran out of arguments.

How ridiculous - your graph is on the same page as mine. Now of course you're lying in your assertion that 40% are rejected because as you well know that's on first decision - which explains the massive numbers allowed to remain on humanitarian reasons. Mine shows the final decisions with over 80% rejected EU wide.

You lose. again.

LOL!

Before quoting statistics you should really check their definitions!

"Final decisions" are defined as the results of migrants appealing against first decisions.
Quote:
The statistics related to the final decisions should refer to what is effectively a final decision in the vast majority of all cases: i.e. that all normal routes of appeal have been exhausted.
So your statistics show that 80% of migrants who appeal against first decision rejection are finally rejected. Or to put it another way the ca. 40% rejected at first decision is reduced because some migrants in that 40% have successful appeals as is shown by your Final decisions statistics.

I do not see it as a win/lose situation, I believe it important to understand and quote correct statistics.

It will all be Chinese owned and managed; they are happy the brainless doomsayers are causing a useful distraction by focusing on Islam

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Lol.

Food bank in Essen only accepting Germans 'to ensure reasonable integration’

"We want German grandmothers to continue coming to us,” head of the association in Essen, Jörg Sartor, told the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ).

Inquiries had moreover shown that older women in particular felt deterred by the large number of young, foreign men at the food bank. Some of the men showed "a lack of respect for women" and "when we unlocked the door in the morning, there was pushing and shoving regardless of grandmas in line," Sartor said.

Well ask the mods to open up the migrant thread again as it is still a rather current topic effecting Europe.

(In any case, I would bet my house that a lot of the ''young foreign men who showed a lack of respect for women'' were Muslims)

The Swedish delegation were on a visit to Iran and simply showing respect to their hosts. No different to western leaders who wear a Kippah when visiting Israel.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I don't think there are issues with the Kippah being forced on people are there?

Combine that with the fact that Sweden touts itself as 'the first feminist government' , and it does seem a bit different. Hypocritical too.

Furthermore, I don't think western leaders wore the Kippah when travelling in Israel in general or when meeting politicians, but only when actually visiting shrines and holy sites

It's like the difference between taking your shows off before entering a mosque and wearing a veil in a secular location while discussing business. Two wholly different situations.

Visiting a Synagogue or a religious ceremony is not the same as a regular state visit.

Castro, who is supposed to be an even handed mod, tends to mention Israel/Jews in negative light whenever I post.
