GABCIKOVO, Slovakia — The next act of the European refugee crisis will unfold in little towns like this one, where hundreds of Syrian war refugees are coming to live in a village that just voted by overwhelming numbers to oppose their stay.
Over the past few days, the first of 500 Syrian asylum seekers arrived to take up three-month residency at a state-run dormitory in the center of town.
Last month, as locals watched the news of streams of migrants winding their way through Europe, the village held a special referendum: 97 percent voted to oppose reopening the Slovakian government’s refugee facility.
“We’re not haters,”said Zoltan Jakus, one of the organizers of the vote. “But I think this will end badly.”
(There is no way it cannot end badly. Islam gives three options. Slavery, conversion and paying 20% to the Caliph, or war. None of them ever end well. In fact the beginning and the middle suck as well. Recommend starting the fight early and doing it well for least possible bad in the equation)
