Dalai Lama

When a refugee crisis of such magnitude as the mass exodus from Syria occurs, it tends to draw out both the best and worst qualities of people. The progressive, humanitarian angle on a situation like this is to take the high of road of offering solace and aid to as many suffering people as possible. An understandable expression of human compassion, however, on the other hand, as a means of protecting and preserving their individual customs and culture, nationalistic movements come out swinging for an end to such destructive immigration policies.

Immigration is being used as a political weapon to destabilize the West. Western governments and political leaders are deliberately permitting unlimited unreasonable amounts of legal and illegal immigration as well as accepting hundreds of thousands of refugees from Muslim nations into their own states. Additionally, radical Islam is admittedly using immigration into Western nations as a tactic to achieve the publicly stated and oft-repeated goal of conquering non-Muslim nations from within their own borders by simply outgrowing them.

Typically known for his peaceful spiritual guidance and leadership in our troubled world, the Dalai Lama recently chimed in with his thoughts about the present refugee crisis in Europe. Without going into too much detail, he stated the simple and unavoidable truth of the situation: immigration, both legal and illegal, is not always a good thing.

Speaking from Dharamsala in northern India where the Tibetan government resides in exile, the Dalai Lama began by reminding us of the compassion normal people feel when seeing such terrible suffering as is happening in Syria and around the Middle East.

“When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering.” – The Dalai Lama

He went a bit further then, commenting on our inherent human duty to help others, but pointing out that a even a policy of compassion has its limits:

“A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now.”

Too many? As reported by RT, the refugee crisis is admitting so many people that there is no possible way to effectively integrate their wildly different political, social and religious beliefs into Europe. Regarding the Dalai Lama’s statements, RT notes:

“He said that countries taking in refugees should take a healthy look at the situation and realize that it’s not possible for all of the newcomers to be integrated into European society, stressing that the main goal for Europe’s leaders is to provide them with temporary shelter.” [Source]

In the age of political correctness and forced diversity, few in the corporate press are willing to speak on this unavoidable fact of life, but, people of different cultures have rarely historically been able to peacefully assimilate and combine their cultures, traditions and ways of life. The result is all too often conflict both political and physical, which we are already seeing spreading throughout Europe. In the present scenario, it is clear that many Muslim immigrants are not at all interested in assimilating into their refugee states, which is causing a clash of cultures.

The Dalai Lama touched on this issue, noting that the reality that unfettered immigration into Europe directly threatens to overpower long standing European culture:

“Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country. Germany is Germany… There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult.” – The Dalai Lama

The issue of immigration is complex and difficult, and even the most compassionate of leaders have little to say about an amicable and functional solution to the problem. While the Dalai Lama did indeed approach this issue with his comments, he offers no wisdom on how to manage the situation going forward, only stating the general sentiment that the immigration threatens Europe and that it should only be temporary.

The West, however is engaged in the mass destruction of the Middle East through the war on terror and the policies of regime change and nation-building. This offers little hope that refugee immigrants will have a livable place to return to any time soon.

We’re already see the first serious signs of the effects of weaponized immigration into Europe, and in some areas, major physical conflicts and dangerous lawlessness are already happening. Take, for example, recent footage from France that shows wild mobs of immigrants disrupting transit and attacking, robbing and vandalizing people.

Events of this nature add to testimony against policies of diversity and political correctness, which aim to conceal the truth and shame people into moulding their personal views and statements around the political agenda of the elite. You are not racist, nor are you xenophobic to speak the truth about the negative effects of uncontrolled immigration.

For someone in a position of spiritual leadership as is the Dalai Lama, it is rather incredible to hear truthful statements that speak to the fact that in order for human compassion to be of value to those who need it, there must be limits to protect those who are in a position to offer aid and solace. 

Peace is just not possible in a lawless environment where people of conflicting cultures are forced to coexist when neither group would have chosen to do so if not coerced to do so by agenda-driven politics.

For a broader perspective on the European immigration crisis and how it is affecting communities around Europe, take a look a this video of compiled footage of the immigration crisis in Europe.

  1. No, Dalai Lama can never talk about the crisis in Europe. Simply because he doesn t know it. If U have a picture with Dalai Lama and U put some words near it… doesn t mean anything. Dalai Lama lives in Tibet, Tibet nowadays belongs to China. Did anyone feel and live in like there is freedom of speech in China? Or do You think Dalai Lama has wi fi in mountains ? If your answer is yes.. well.. I start packing right now. I m moving to China. Please join me. It s the new Wonderland. Only if your world is the other way around. Stop bullshitting people. Remember Karma?

      Dalai Lama lives in India not in Tibet. He escaped to India in 1959 fearing that the Chinese were after his life.

    • Evil preaches tolerance until it becomes dominant, then it will silence the goods, that’s how liberal and socialist idea works, I got kicked out of my own country by Chinese using the same tactic back in the 40s until now they are dominant in my region and I’m minority on my own land, learn some lesson spoiled Brian washed liberals

  2. Shazia Bibi Shazia Bibi says:

    Funny he should say that when He himself has lived in India for the past 57 years as a refugee…

    • Kira Queen Kira Queen says:

  3. Think he has a good idea about whats happening and a good opinion of whats wrong with it.

  4. Instead of trying to find solutions to the refugee crisis, how about a solution to the chronic war mentality that is at the heart of the problem? War solves nothing…have we not figured that one out yet? How dumb do we need to get? Seriously!

  5. Nam Nineth Nam Nineth says:

    The world belong to whom?

  6. Red Dust Art Red Dust Art says:

    Look up the Han and Tibetans in Tibet, you’ll see how immigration is used as a tool to displace native populations.

    • Red Dust Art Red Dust Art says:

      Kawsar Kurban immigration has been a weapon of control/war for thousands of years. We all, globally have suffered from this practice. Because no one remembers their history, we are doomed to manipulation until the immigrant and the stable population stand together and say to the controllers, enough is enough!!! I’m am saddened your people have to bear the burden of an elite group of people who profit from your people’s suffering.

  7. Great guy, wise&balanced, and very lazy!

  8. Jody Turpin Jody Turpin says:

    If you look closely at the refugees they are mostly young healthy men, not women and children…why don’t they stay and fight for their country ,fight for their own country, not a fight to get into Germany .

  9. Fred Zee Fred Zee says:

    You cannot mix a culture which is against pluralism into a pluralistic society.

  10. Fred Zee Fred Zee says:

    He is aware that the Muslims destroyed Buddhism in India. They murdered the monks, destroyed Nalanda university and according to the Koran killed the non believers if they would not convert.

  11. Tell Dalai Lama to believe Jesus not buddha,you mistreat people of God due to immigration reasons! You make the people sad! convert to Jesus and you’ll make everybody prosperous & peaceful

  12. Refugee – person that lives temporary. Refugee should not implement his own beliefs and traditions. No matter why he comes, he has to accept rules

  13. Erik Albert Erik Albert says:

    All a matter of perspective. All international operations are exclusively designed. In other words, saying yes to immigrants, is giving your ok to the conflict that generates them. In other words, countries that backup international conflicts can under no circumstances ignore immigrants.

  14. Evil preaches tolerance until it becomes dominant, then it will silence the goods, that’s how liberal and socialist idea works, I got kicked out of my own country by Chinese using the same tactic back in the 40s until now they are dominant in my region and I’m minority on my own land, learn some lesson spoiled Brian washed liberals

  15. I guess he has no opinion on colonialism or the wars that caused the refugees to leave their countries initiated by NATO countries.

    •' Anna says:

      Exactly! Why would he not comment on the existential evil of war and the militaristic foreign policies that have driven refugees to other lands? In any case Refugees are not synonymous with immigrants. I very much doubt that His Holiness made these comments .

  16. Erik Bullon Erik Bullon says:

    CIA agent , puppet lama pushed by the US#

  17. Art Simkins Art Simkins says:

    Illegal immigrants suck the life out of a host country. In the case of muslim immigration, they seek to destroy their host countries and cultures.

  18. Ruth Lyman Ruth Lyman says:

    No always a good thing so sometimes it is and who decides when. Poles are fixed so the people cant.
