Wathing the barbarians
30 August 2018 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

I was watching the barbarians and the destruction left in their path. Somehow they always find somebody else to blame. And I recall the civilization in Israel and how the antisemites want to destroy that, disregarding that is the last bastion of humanity in a desert of madness.

The documentary is just a wise scheme. They know what happens when Europeans get to the refugees. So the producers are weaving a story to sell in exchange for visas.
