You do not get to be a professional in Syria unless you are at least a supporter of the Ba'ath Party

On Channel 4 News this evening Matt Frei was interviewing Syrian refugees in Budapest:  http://www.channel4.com/news/

He talked to professionals - a teacher, someone who wanted to be a doctor, in the past he has talked to other professionals.

Syria was a totalitarian state that openly and unapologetically modelled itself on Nazi Germany.

You do not get to be a professional in Syria unless you are at least a supporter of the Ba'ath Party, and preferably a party member (estimates vary but it is thought that ten years ago up to 18% of the population of Syria were party members).

Perhaps Mr Frei could probe a little more into the political background of these refugees  - who seem to include (from the broadcast reports) a disproportionate number of young men, exactly of an age to have been active in the Syrian Mukhabarat or secret police.

Are the EU authorities happy that large numbers of fascist national-socialists may be entering the Schengen area?

And is it not ironic that they are headed to Germany, which they must consider to be their spiritual home.
