A Ukrainian journalist who traveled by train with some of the hundreds of thousands of Mideast migrants seeking asylum in the West is warning that many are not the peace-loving job-hunters the new host nations desire.
A fluent speaker of Arabic, Aida Bolivar said she overheard them openly speak of robbing and raping fellow travelers.
A Hungarian television channel broadcast the interview with Bolivar, who was traveling Aug. 31 from Budapest to Vienna on one of the trains virtually taken over by migrants flooding Europe, ostensibly because of war in Syria, Iraq and Libya.
Bolivar explained she lived for a total of five years in the Arabic-speaking countries of Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia.
“This is the same train that [was] featured in many European news programs,” the TV host said, explaining it was besieged by “migrants who sought to leave the transit Hungary to flourishing Germany.”
Bolivar estimated 90 percent of the migrants were healthy men from age 18 to 45. They would, she said, grab children at random and use them to bludgeon their way onto train cars.
She was traveling with a ticket, as were several others, she said.
“We sat down. The rest of the car was totally empty. Within minutes, something unbelievable happened. Huge screaming, the windows were cracking. The situation was unbelievable. Like some dark cloud, a mass of people got on,” she said.
“There were conflicts, fights and other awful things,” Bolivar said.
The climax came “when they began talking to each other in a relaxed tone, considering whether or not they should rob us, since that would please Allah, because we were infidels.”
“As for me, it would really be worth raping me, because I am not dressed like a proper woman. I haven’t got a hijab on my head, that is, I’m not Muslim, and so I am bad,” she said.
She said her arrival at Keleti Railway Station in Budapest had been enough of a shock.
There were, she said, “masses of people of Arab appearance, filthy, unwashed and loud, who refused to let me get across the entrance.”
“They shouted various insults in my direction. They tried to take away my luggage,” she said.
“While I waited for my train, I saw what has happening in the station. People, without shame, simply defecated right where they stood,” she said.
“Children were screaming. There were huge piles of trash. They could not speak a single European language. There was noise, shouting, and all they could think to do in the heat of the moment was to grab the luggage of passersby and shout obscenities at them.”
WND previously reported that among the demands from the Muslim migrants is that they be allowed to go to nations where they get the most benefits from taxpayers.
“And for what job are they being paid?” wrote Islam expert Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch.
“Proving Europe’s multicultural bona fides?”
His retort came after the London Express reported migrants from Syria “are demanding they are allowed to go to Sweden or Finland because the terms of asylum are more favorable for them.”
The report quoted asylum seeker Marwen el Mohammed giving his reasons.
He said he wants to avoid Denmark, because “the salary for refugees decreased about 50 percent from 10,000 kroner, about $1,500, to about 5,000 kroner.”
Further, he said in the report, Finland and other countries allow families to join together “within two or three months,” but Denmark requires them to wait a year.
Meanwhile, U.S. national security officials have discussed boosting the projected number of refugees accepted from 70,000 in 2015 to 85,000 in 2016 and then 100,000 in 2017.
President Obama has called for cooperation from European countries on the migrant problem. The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration say there is resistance to a flood of newcomers, and Democrats and Republicans are divided on the issue.
Democrats charge that the U.S. isn’t doing enough, while top GOP officials have warned that taking Syrian refugees creates a national security risk, as terror-seeking individuals may come to the country amid those who truly are fleeing violence.
ISIS has confirmed its intent to infiltrate the West through the flow of migrants.
A Hungarian government official recently made the astounding prediction that up to 35 million migrants could flood into Europe as part of a historic population shift.
The comment from Hungary’s foreign minister came as Republicans in Congress began supporting a bill that would close the U.S. off to refugees for the foreseeable future, a direct counter-punch to Obama’s plan to bring in 85,000 foreign refugees next year, including 10,000 from ISIS-controlled territory in Syria.
