Egypt: 300 Egyptians who seek asylum in the Czech Republic

Ibn ad Dunya writes about the 300 Egyptians who seek asylum in the Czech Republic. He said: “Who can blame them for wanting to go to Europe, to leave Egypt is a dream for many young Egyptians, and only to achieve the goal of getting a visa to America, Canada, Australia or the EU is tough post 9/11 and with Europe showing it’s nicest smile towards any potential refugee seeker, before sending him back with the first available flight if possible.”
