“Germany is Germany.”

The Dalai Lama has taken a bold stance on the Syrian refugee crisis facing Europe, saying that western European democracies should not become Arab countries in a report by the Times of India.

“When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering,” the Tibetan spiritual leader said. “A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now.”

“Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country,” the Dalai Lama said. “Germany is Germany.”

“There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult,” he continued.

The Dalai Lama went on to say that the Syrian refugees “from a moral point of view too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily.”

“The goal should be that they return and help rebuild their countries,” he concluded.

The Dalai Lama’s statements have set Twitter ablaze, with users in shock that the spiritual leader has taken such a logical approach to the refugee crisis, while Pope Francis has advocated for more refugee replacement.
