The Dalai Lama this week had the temerity to suggest that maybe an unlimited flow of indefinitely housed refugees isn’t the greatest idea ever.
“When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering,” said the Tibetan spiritual leader, who has himself lived in exile for over half a century.
“A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now,” he said.
“Europe and America, cannot become an Arab country,” he added with a laugh, the daily reported.”
The Dalai Lama added that “from a moral point of view too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily”.
“The goal should be that they return and help rebuild their countries.”
Another heresy for leftists. Will President Obama claim the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism is afraid of women and children, as he says of Republicans who make the same observation? Remember that Obama called the Dalai Lama “a powerful example of what it means to practice compassion,” and said that he “inspires us to speak up for the freedom and dignity of all human beings.”
