Interesting arguments here.
What I can say is that surely nobody doubts that disaster relief is a common thing for all militaries in the world. But what you don't know is that Finnish Defense Forces conscripts have already been deployed
in handling the refugees to the reception centers. Not to mention that the Finnish Peacekeepers are quite well-known for keeping the peace in the conflict areas they are deployed, courtesy of us having a reservist army rather than a career army where the training of the personnel is radically different. The difference is quite well demonstrated in this little incident
. What is left unmentioned is that the twenty guys defending the position also prevented an air strike against the locals (several times), which would have killed hundreds. So of any armies around here, I'd say we'd have a best shot of not escalating anything if the reservists are deployed. Mind you that it has already happened in a couple of large scale police operations where some resistance was expected.
The basis of tolerance is not in the passive acceptance of intolerance.
This idea has been bandied around by idiots and answered so much there is literally a proverb about it in Sandwich's signature.
Have you just missed that all these years or is the reason your ideas are escaping your gravitational pull their complete lack of substance?
If you didn't realize it, you are also advocating inequality with this. You're basically saying that the dudes coming here are better citizens as they clearly should be governed by different laws. There's also a term for this; it is called "apartheid". And this time, the majority is the oppressed, and it is that same majority that pays the bills. Not to mention that the equivalence is heavily emphasized in Finnish culture. So any guesses what will happen in the long term? With pressing forward, you'd be going towards the societal collapse and removal of all the oh-so-valuable norms and values; there is already tension between the labor and the government doing budget cuts, and Russia being ready to take the advantage on the Eastern border.
So yeah, constructing an idealistic argument is easy. I can do that too.
All this brings to mind one announcement where a pair of female students were looking for a room-mate. In the add they were looking for a person who is tolerant, open-minded and easy going just as they are. In the next sentence, they also said their room-mate should also be vegan, not wear any animal tested make-up, not using clothes made of synthetic materials, only approved bio-shampoo and so on. I never go to the bottom of it to see whether it was a joke or real (or if they ever found a room-mate), but I suppose the point is clear: you can easily become intolerant in your perceived tolerance, which is exactly what happened above.
So. In short. Two Arabs who lived in Netherlands wanted to buy guns in Poland. Wouldn't mind that if idiots hadn't wanted to bribe the gun store owner to sell the weapons without registration <for sport purposes of that I'm sure xD>. Entire incident in the store was secretly filmed and shortly after an AT police squad got them arrested.
Thanks for dealing with this stuff in the right way. Shop owner should get a rise for alerting the police and the AT squad a commendation for prompt response. No surprise they are originally from the well-integrating Netherlands. As they have been from well-integrating Sweden, well-integrating Germany, well-integrating France, well-integrating UK...
