WATSON FWD TO YARD FROM THE PUB, N'UMBERLAND--
Citing security reasons, her populist government is rejecting EU pressure for Poland to take in a number of migrants, even at the price of facing sanctions. The previous government, in 2015 agreed to take in up to 10,000 refugees fleeing armed conflict, but Szydlo's team reversed that decision.
Concerning the attack in which the Polish couple died, orphaning two daughters, she asked: "Where are you headed, Europe? Rise from your knees and from your lethargy, or you will be crying over your children every day."
She gave her support to Macierewicz's steps to reorganize the armed forces by arguing that Europe should decide "whether we want politicians, who say that we need to get used to the attacks and who call terrorist attacks 'incidents,' or whether we want politicians who are strong, who see the threat and fight them, like Antoni Macierewicz."
Angelika and Marcin Klis died when a suicide bomber detonated a device as crowds were leaving an Ariana Grande gig.
In TOK FM, Dorota Maniszewska of the Center for Terrorism has pointed out that the main goal of terrorism is not the brutal and bloody act itself, but to bring about such an effect that will lead to the response of societies and governments by despotic terrorists. We all know what effect Prime Minister Szydlo is: the frightened society is to choose PiS, who "saved Poland from terrorist attacks". If Poland becomes a closed xenophobic fortress and if it tries to break European unity in this and other matters, the strategic goal of Islamic terrorists will be fulfilled.--
NOTES: The individual has to ask himself, is the will of the European Union to allow refugees to saturate their countries in some way dilutes the influence of terror from the Middle East, the answer is no. The PM is correct, reject the politically elite proposition and defend the sovereignty of the nation, defend its right to nationalism.
