Many refugees abandoned their homes in the Middle East because of the same terrorist group targeting European capitals. Yet along the way, those refugees have found themselves punished for the atrocities that ISIS commits in Europe.

It takes only a few a**holes to ruin the reputation of an entire ethnic group.

This situation has begun to trigger some anger in me, given the attitude of many (HERE) in terms of THEIR attitude to war and the crisis with refugees and immigrants.

Many seem to have completely forgotten we're all human beings, and all deserve a certain basic level of respect, food, shelter, etc.

These people fleeing from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan are inevitably going to suffer the backlash from those who simply have the aggressive attitude of old style colonialism, divide and conquer.

As Freya has indicated, it only take a few bad apples to ruin an entire apple-cart for everyone.

The world isn't mad, various conflicting sects and cults are definitely deranged, however.

I'm afraid fear will stop thousands of legal refugees reaching safety and any hope of a safer and better life.

I am so sorry for all the poor refugees. They are also victims of the terror attacks in my country last Tuesday . :( :( :(

Blame the victim. It works against the victims of rape, police brutality, muggings. When the system falls short, it can not accept the blame. So, blame the helpless.

It's not just a matter of reputation. European security forces demonstrably cannot differentiate between those fleeing violence and those hidden among them who are bringing it with them. As one of my friends seems so fond of saying, "Here's a bowl full of M&Ms. Five are laced with cyanide. Enjoy."

I am sorry to say that I agree with this story. Life is so cheap in the middle eastern countries, that if it takes 1 million refugees to wreck havoc on 31 people, so be it.

There requires some very fundamental changes in attitude and mindset in the minds of people who think they're in power in the Middle East, and in the West.

Noted. Thanks, Dandelion.
I think Darren said it very well in his comments. These refugees aren't just fleeing Daesh/ISIS, they are fleeing a battleground. While the U.S. and other countries are dropping bombs (to stop Daesh/ISIS), the bombing includes many, many innocents and their homes. Although I don't suppose anyone is ready to call this a World War yet.......
