Actually, let's take Poland as an example. I have many Polish friends, more than any other nationality except Australia, have spent several months in Poland, lived with Poles, dated Poles, etc etc etc cue complete shitting on me. Poles hate brown people. There are exceptions, but this is just how it is. They're relatively small minded towards outsiders and are way behind them times in a globalist sense. Democratically, they throw overwhelming support behind whatever candidate says "fuck foreigners and refugees" the most. Should they be pressured into accepting something they don't want? You can see how different interests in the EU can cause problems when Greece and Germany are begging everyone to take some of the burden and some nationalities want nothing to do with it and see it as a tragic problem which Germany encouraged and now has to suffer the consequences, with the Balkans just an unfortunate byproduct of that. What is the perfect EU solidarity solution to that? Your post is super long so I'll get back to the Deutsche Waffen arguments and such later. The humanitarian is probably the biggest one to address - these are real people suffering, and nobody is denying that. The problem with resettling them in your own country is one of demographics and the fact that people are always in a worse off condition, and if Europe were to take in all 19.500.000 refugees worldwide, there would literally be the same number in 20 years, and that's not even including the amount that would be encouraged to become refugees by the previous takein but by the amount of children people have. Instead of accepting people into your country and leaving the ones behind to suffer you should improve the country they're fleeing from and help all the people who live there, not just the ones rich enough to pay smugglers to get the to Italy. Obviously that's easier said than done, especially when only 47% of refugees to Europe are Syrians, but so is trying to integrate 1.5 million foreigners into your country at once. If all the politicians go around saying "wir schaffen das" then surely this solution is a comparatively easier way to help far more people and actually solve the problem.
