June 27, 2016 – BREXIT AND ARAB SPRING

Archives
The British left the EU in a referendum last week. Despite what you have heard, those who want who wanted to leave were not racist – unless you think 52% of Britons are racist. The Arab Spring is probably the biggest cause of the break. The Arab Spring lead to the formation of ISIS, which lead to a Syrian Civil War, which lead to Syrian refugees. The refugees began flooding into Europe. Fears of Islamic terrorists entering with the genuine refugees had many Europeans scared. Those fears were realized during the attacks in Paris in November 2015 – one of the terrorists had indeed come in with the refugees. The EU was trying to make Britain take more and more of these Syrian refugees against the will of many Britons.
