Strange that most are from either Pakistan and Afghanistan. Would they not be welcome in Saudi Arabia or other Islamic countries ? Why Europe !!

At last, Greece has been receiving a lot of good press lately.

In Australia, it seems public opinion is very much with Greece and Mitsotakis in their efforts in trying to defend their borders from the influx of illegals.

No one is falling for the old arguments that these people are refugees. Most are not genuine.

Only about 5% are from Syria.

And public opinion has never been more against Turkey than now. At long last, people are seeing right through Erdogan and Turkey.

Greece has really turned things round, and the average person is right behind them right now.

Erdogan is scheduled to visit Australia in the coming weeks. It's actually a massive insult to our country having this imbecile step foot on Australia similar to when Pootin came down under a few years ago. It makes me feel dirty when such criminals visit our country. They should never be allowed to enter Australia and they can also take their consulates.

there are petitions doing the rounds, trying to prevent Erdogan from visiting.

Australia stands with Greece. Will always stand with Greece as we are blood brothers with the Greeks more than most other countries. A relationship which is written in the blood of thousands of Greek and Australian soldiers and forged over many bottles of Ouzo and Retsina and games of Rummy and 2 up as they over a pack of cigarettes as they fought the Nazis and Italians and also as they faced Rommel's forces in Egypt and Libya.

There is quite a bit of outrage at Erdogan, and the only time I have seen more outrage is when Pootin visited.

So far, the Yazidis, Armenians, Greeks, Cypriots, Kurds and Assyrians in Australia are all united and the average Aussie is on their side too.

Turkey doesn't have too many friends.

...there is no point in laughing at the displaced because their misery is real.

...but a "Safe Zone" thirty miles into Turkey's territory would be the buffer the EU needs, given that Turkey needs the same, in Syria.

...if Turkey cannot secure their borders as such, for whatever reason, (already suggested by others), there would be help in such a "Safe Zone" for Turkey from its neighbours.

In any case, Erdogan has made his point, he can control his frontier, but he is unwilling to do so.

And weapons of mass misery, war with water, displacement, and territorial subjugation are but some of his stock in trade most recently, we see.

...if the Rule of Law begins at Turkey's European frontier, so be it; there is no exception for Lawlessness. No one should expect differently, even in Turkey. Turkey acting Lawlessly only compounds the misery of its victims. Those at the border are relatively few, to those who seek Justice seen, whether presently in Turkey, or at their border in Syria (Idlib), where more are allegedly coming from, let's not forget, they are watching too.

Will Turkey allow these hapless people to return to Turkey; caught in this clash? That to me seems to be prevailing, as a question.

You should know their answer to this (at least the ones that really believe which is far from all): they are being tested

These people are not refugees. maybe a few Syrians are, but they only account for 5% if that.

Turks account for another 5%.

This illegal immigration has to stop. Every country has a right to protect their way of life and not have their populations diluted and customs and culture destroyed or their labour markets inundated with cheap labour. There is also a National Security risk and no one even knows their criminal history.

Women even feel unsafe as their seems to be a sexist culture which seems to think women are sex slaves and that they have rights to rape or use their bodies.

Sorry, but Greece and Europe as a whole is under attack.

At long last Merkel is seeing the light as she has gone quiet.

she has gone quiet because she dropped the ball in 2015 with the last wave of uncontrolled immigration and refugees.

She should never have done what she did and the way that she did it was probably the end of her.

Her party has sunk to record low popularity levels in Germany, at about 12%.

I doubt she will be around after the next election and some commentators think she should resign.

Uncontrolled immigration and not being able to defend borders is just out right irresponsible if you ask me. It has too many ramifications.
