To return to the topic: The vast majority of the people leaving Syria are ordinary people - I'm sure of that. With those we can make an alliance. Anyway - they can't be sent back - so we have to cope.
It will not be a question of integrating; it will be a question of assimilation. They will need to work - no country can sustain them on welfare. It will be a tremendous pressure on the welfare systems anyway - but if we make an alliance with them, and they can be our protection against islamism. That's one of the dangers they fled from, isn't it? My Iranian colleagues - just ask them what they think of islamism. Why would the Syrians be different?
So we can use them for fortifying our aging population - and they will be our vaccine against islamism if we treat them right. We don't need to repeat the errors of the French and the Belgians and the Swedes.
