PEJOURNAL – The humanitarian crisis, centered on refugees and refugees, has taken on new dimensions, with thousands of refugees settling on the Belarusian-Polish border in recent days, and Polish authorities preventing them from entering the EU by placing barbed wire and an army on the border.
The situation on the border between Belarus and Poland is very difficult, and asylum seekers are facing food and water shortages in the extreme cold, and numerous reports of humanitarian catastrophe are published in these centers every day.
A remarkable point in response to this humanitarian catastrophe is the reaction of Western countries from Poland to the European Union and even the United States.
Meanwhile, the leaders of Europe and the United States, instead of allocating funds and facilities to resolve the refugee crisis, have issued joint statements against Russia and Belarus.
This critical situation in the United States can be seen later as nearly 3 months after the beginning of the rapid and chaotic evacuation of the United States and a number of Afghan citizens from Afghanistan, still about 50,000 Afghan refugees, despite receiving vaccines and quarantine, are still in US military bases closed.
Afghan refugees, 44 percent of whom are children, are in a precarious situation and do not have enough resources to survive the cold winter despite a gradual drop in temperature.
The sum of these behaviors by Western countries regarding asylum seekers contains several important points:
First; These behaviors are a new dimension of genocide perpetrated by Westerners who have committed massacres in Rwanda, Algeria, Namibia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, and whose lives are now of no value to them.
French politician Julian Odell has said that these migrants should never be allowed to enter Europe and that they should die of frostbite rather than enter Europe.
Since the outbreak of war in West Asia and Africa in 2011, European immigration policies have taken the lives of thousands of refugees, of which the crisis situation in refugee camps in Turkey, Greece and even France is a small part of it.
It is noteworthy that crimes have been committed against asylum-seeking children in many European countries. Official reports indicate the disappearance of thousands of asylum-seeking children in Germany, as well as the implementation of a policy of admission of asylum-seeking children without parents by the British, recalling the crimes committed against so-called Indigenous children in Canada’s boarding schools separated from their families and thousands of them were sent to deaths.
Second; Under the 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, European countries are unconditionally responsible for accepting and providing facilities to refugees. In a thoughtful move, Europeans seek to shift the issue from a humanitarian crisis resulting from Western policies to a political confrontation between Russia and Belarus and Europe to evade responsibility. In this case, EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has announced a meeting of EU foreign ministers to impose sanctions on Belarus.
Third; The humanitarian catastrophe on the Belarusian-Polish border can be seen as a new dimension of the West’s unreliability and treacherous nature, as the 20 years of occupation of Afghanistan have resulted in nothing but suffering for the oppressed people of the country, and the United Nations says 18 million Afghans are starving out of a population of 38 million.
Interestingly, Western countries have refused to fulfill their financial obligations to Afghan refugees, and the United Nations has officially announced that it will not provide funding for relief.
Fourth; What is happening today by Westerners on the Belarusian-Polish border or in refugee camps on the US border is a clear indication of the difference in views of countries like the Islamic Republic of Iran that has patiently and patiently hosted millions of displaced Afghans for more than four decades.
The West, which is officially responsible for the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and many other countries, but; Instead of helping to resolve the refugee crisis, it officially commits genocide and sacrifices thousands of innocent people for economic and political purposes, and even imposes sanctions on countries such as the Islamic Republic.
