EKRE: Terror in France shows cost of open doors policy ({{commentsTotal}})


The terrorist attack in Nice showed the cost of France’s open door policy for ordinary citizens, the Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) said on Friday.

The party issued a statement expressing condolences to the French people and resolutely condemning the brutal and cowardly act of terror in Nice that left 84 dead, including 10 children.

Predictably, the party added a political statement of its own. “What happened in Nice directly affects our people as well and shows mercilessly that Western Europe is no longer safe,” the party stated.

According to EKRE, these terrorist attacks are possible because of large Muslim communities that have sprung up in France and other Western European countries. Yet the “hypocritical governments” of those countries had done nothing to stem mass immigration Europe’s being infiltrated by terrorists, the statement added.

“Estonia must resolutely change its migration and asylum policy, restore a real border guard force and increase its anti-terror capability,” EKRE chairman Mart Helme was quoted, adding that major Western European powers should also review their policies.

If the European Commission and the leading European countries didn't change their attitude to immigration, the European Union would inevitably disintegrate, as the people of Europe and quite a few European governments simply would not accept their countries becoming a battlefield of Islam, Helme added.
