Sure, most Muslim countries wouldn't be my first choice, but I'm not much of a patriot. Regarding cultures, I trust an ancient maxim "When in Rome, do as Romans do". My choice of a country would be based on geopolitical situation and possible advancement opportunities. And then? Adapt to the new realia, exploit new options, climb up the ladder. When you're open minded, educated and intelligent, you can find your place anywhere where there's civilization.
And you would be OK with all of that happening to you, yes? If you had to flee your precious Poland to a muslim country, you would be fine with the group you're travelling with being forcibly broken up and contact between you and your fellow refugees being restricted?
Just checking here. What would your reaction to that scenario be? Would it be acceptance, or would you resent it?
I'd make the most of out it. I'd try to learn the language, find someone with appreciation of my skills and ideally, money to pay for them as well. Losing my current place in the world wouldn't be pleasant, but it wouldn't be the end of me, either, especially if I managed to take some starting capital with me. In fact, unless my "fellow refugees" had something to offer themselves (unlikely in your scenario), I probably would meet them for company, but not much else. If I ended up in Saudi Arabia I'd probably have to at least pay lip service to their religion, so that'd be the primary issue (I find all religious rituals more or less silly and a waste of time), but that would be a problem with any deeply religious place.
And yes, I'd certainly take it with "class".
Losing your dignity and composure in face of trouble isn't going to help anyone. If stuff blows up, you pick up the pieces and carry on. Unlike others, I certainly wouldn't protest about things being "not like in Poland".
BTW, there's nothing precious about my country. If it wasn't for a handful of people in it that I like and property owned by my family, it could crash and burn for all I care. Given the current state of Polish politics, if we were invaded by someone with a better government, I could even side with them if they seemed like enough of an improvement. Poland wasn't worth fighting for since the end of WWII.
Right, how dare these people who didn't have the ressources to flee the country before it got really bad suddenly get the idea that getting murdered by religious fundamentalists would really impact their quality of life.
Silly rabble, always getting ideas above their station in life....
Did the war provide them with resources to flee the country? I don't think so. And if only fleeing the war-torn country was the point, why wouldn't they stay in Turkey, for example? No, they want to exploit the very exploitable European social security systems.
That said, it's not their fault. For them, it's a logical thing to do. In fact, I like to say they're probably the smartest people on Earth. They're happy with what Europe gives them. That doesn't mean they're not (in majority) louts and rabble, but the fault is on the people who created those system that they exploit. I only said the rabble was causing trouble, not that it's the rabble's ultimate fault, nor something they should be "punished" for. They're simply doing their own thing, it's not an Islamic conspiracy to take over Europe, but a natural result of boneheaded actions by European governments. If they keep acting like that, the ultimate result will likely be the rise of neo-fascism, with dire consequences for everyone
My entire point that the solution won't come from them, it has to come from us, or more specifically from our governments. Disperse and integrate them, reform the benefit system so that the lose the incentive to come, kick them out... It's what we
have to do. Refugees aren't going to help. They will look out for their own benefit. If we can arrange the world so that this also means they work for our benefit, then it'll be a success. Failing that, the problem could be solved by getting them to get out of our way (that wouldn't recoup the expenses, so to speak, but would still be better than status quo).
