Why It’s Horrible to Blame Refugees for the Paris Attacks|
This tweet by Imperial College London student Dan Holloway says it perfectly:
The violence brought by terrorists like ISIS is cited as one of the main factors that forced many of these people to flee from their homes in the first place. The current death toll in Syria has passed 250,000 people, out of which 30,000 were children. To blame the refugees for perpetrating the kind of horrors that they’ve upended their lives to try to escape is a slap in the face.
As some replies to the aforementioned tweet snidely suggested, the attackers could have used the refugee crisis to their advantage to make it past the French border. This COULD be true. Again, it’s important to emphasize that at this point, nobody knows what happened.
