<p class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>The coverage of the refugee crisis has been intensely negative, but there have been at least three very positive stories regarding the migrants coming into Europe. Beyond the flipping boats, water hoses, and dead bodies on the beach, are these things:</p>

<li class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>A billionaire has offered to buy an entire island for all the refugees</li>
<li class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>60,000 Icelanders have volunteered to take refugees in</li>
<li class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>In Germany and the Austria the refugees were welcomed with crowds clapping and singing, and in the much maligned nation of Hungary hundreds of people left their shoes for the migrants</li>

<p class=”p1″ style=”text-align: center;”><strong>Not the Cops Faults, but Political Leaders</strong></p>
<p class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>If you read The Summary Report <a href=”https://thesummaryreport.com/september-17-2015/”>yesterday</a>, then you know a 14 year old Muslim boy in Texas brought a homemade clock to school and was subsequently, arrested for bringing a ‘bomb’ to school. Yes, they arrested him for a clock they thought was a bomb. Ahmed got a lot of positive attention from the likes of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and President Obama. A large Muslim group has said they do not blame the police for the arrest, but instead anti-Islamic political rhetoric. <a href=”http://www.nola.com/education/index.ssf/2015/09/muslim_group_doesnt_fault_scho.html” target=”_blank”>Read mas</a></p>

<p class=”p1″ style=”text-align: left;”>Dylann Roof shot and killed nine African-Americans inside a church not long ago in one of the worst hate crimes in America in some time.
