Aras Bacho, the brilliant Syrian teen migrant and regular contributor at Huffington Post Germany, has gifted us with yet another gem. In addition to demanding that Germany provide all signage in Arabic, Bacho would like to incorporate the Syrian norm of fake passports into the once-functioning Federal Republic of Germany.
What could go wrong? It’s not as if fake passports have been used by refugees in order to wage jihad on the infidel…oh, wait.
HuffPo Germany: Fake passports are not a crime, Aras Bacho, Huffington Post Germany, October 28, 2016
The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees has registered 2000 asylum seekers using fake passports. Nevertheless they were not punished for it. I also came to Europe with a fake passport.
I think it is completely fair for individuals to use fake passports to get to Europe if they are threatened and are searching for safety.
Refugees with fake passports are not allowed to be punished. In my opinion, it is legal for Syrian refugees to come to Germany this way. Why should they be punished? They are only seeking freedom.
Fake passports were completely normal in Syria. Anyone who lost their passport could simply buy a new one – also in Turkey.
Passports for Syrians should also be for sale in Europe. The authorities in Greece sold fake passports to Syrians and other migrants to earn some money. Other countries should do the same.
Nobody should be punished for freedom.
