Tens of thousands of people, many fleeing war and Islamic State in Syria, are trying to get to Germany where Merkel has said they will be allowed to stay.
Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders called the wave of refugees pushing into Europe an “Islamic invasion,” [he continued] “Masses of young men in their twenties with beards singing Allahu Akbar across Europe.” [and that it’s] “an Islamic invasion of Europe, of the Netherlands.”
Wilders’ “Party for Freedom leads Dutch opinion polls. Roughly 54 percent of Dutch voters are opposed to accepting more than roughly 2,000 refugees previously agreed.”
