5.0 out of 5 stars Right on target 4 Dec 2006
By Seth J. Frantzman - Published on Amazon.com
Refugees are violent. This is a fact of history, but it is not always a fact. In the case of the Palestinians, the Hutus in Congo and the Bosnians, the refugees were either already terrorists when they fled or became them once in the camps. Violence was the national anthem of the camps in the COngo, which were made up of people who just got done murdering 800,000 Tutsis, for the Palestiniasn refugeedom and the politics of that led to 50 years of terror that hasn't ended, with Afghans the same led to the Taliban and in Bosnia were it not for soem efforts to disarm them, the same would have happaned.

The truth is refugee policy by the UN and the 'international community' has not only failed the refugees, but has also caused untold violence and perhaps contributed to racism, hatred, genocide and fascism and worse. But there have been refugee crises that were solved, peacefully. The German refugees in 1945 fleeing East Prussia didnt become terrorists despite the Nazi background of them, and the Sikh and Hindu refugees from Pakistan in 1948 didnt all become terrorists. Why? Because, as shown here, in some places there were succesful policies to disarm, prevent violence and obsorb refugees. This book dares to show that it is not poverty that makes refugees violent but political and organizational factors. This is true and it has been shown to be true.

An important study.
