Top Polish minister Ryszard Czarnecki defended his country’s refusal of Muslim migrants to their country.
The only way to protect Poland from terrorist attacks is by not allowing Islamic migrants into the country, Polish European Parliament deputy Ryszard Czarnecki has said.
His comments follow an attack in London on Saturday which killed ten, including three suspects, and injured at least 48 others.
Czarnecki, who hails from Poland’s conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, said terrorist attacks were often carried out by children of “Islamic migrants” – many of them citizens of European countries – who were trained by the so-called Islamic State.
“Other countries have led to a situation in which those trained on Islamic State territory in Syria, Iraq – young people with French, Belgian, Dutch, British, German citizenship – return to Europe … and somehow [the authorities] were incapable of monitoring them,” Czarnecki said.
“We, Poland, are learning from the mistakes of others … and we will not open our doors to Islamic migrants,” he added.
