Majority of these migrants embrace dodgy doctrine

While it is understandable that the plight of migrants and refugees should somehow be sorted out, especially that of genuinely persecuted people, there is a common and mistaken thread throughout media that migrants are somehow neutral ideological agents or hopefully people who seek to embrace and support the ideals of liberty of the free world.

If that were so the acceptance of these migrants and refugees would be a simpler matter of logistics and resources. But this is not so, as the great majority are Muslim who embrace a doctrine that denies freedom of conscience and freedom of speech.

It should be remembered that there was far greater support for the jihad/terrorists of Charlie Hebdo and the Danish cartoonists in Muslim societies in Europe than there were for their victims.

As for those who will accuse me of Islamophobia I would just say to open the Islamic text and read and then call for justice for Azma bint Marwah and so many more.
