After a generation the same very low birth rates apply to the new refugees and immigrants as well as they adopt common economic goals. Raising children in a developed nation is expensive after all.

BTW, up until the Syrian invasion, Germany’s biggest pool of asylum shoppers was from Kosovo, which has been at peace for decades.

For anyone to be calling Cyprus a “racist” country is simply absurd. Cyprus has welcomed refugees, from Lebanon (Civil War), The former Yugoslavia (Civil War) Palestine (War with Israel) Kuwait (during Saddam’s invasion) and other smaller regional conflicts….Further Cyprus has been instrumental in the safe evacuation of U.S. citizens from war-torn areas throughout the Middle East and has served as a hub for the safe transfer of western nationals to Europe, the U.K. and The USA. Cyprus is a small, independent country member of the EU that sits on approx. 10,000 Sq. km, with a population of 750,000 Greek Cypriots and 300,000 Turkish Cypriots and Turkish nationals. It was itself invaded by Turkey in 1974 and approx. 38% of its territory remains illegally occupied by Turkish troops to date (41 years). Cyprus is also the smallest and now the weakest economy in the EU with its citizens forced to take a “Haircut” or “Bail-in” which was more like theft of their bank accounts by the EU in 2013/2014. The only reason more Syrian refugees and aother economic migrants do not land in Cyprus is because the distance from Syria by sea is too long and perilous to take on a dinghy. There are Syrians that have migrated to Cyprus over the years and have become Cypriot citizens (legally). This type of reporting is “racist” and irresponsible. Get your facts straight!

Heaven help the EU – you will have even worse problems with the invaders than we have in the US.
