    Dalai Lama says 'Europe belongs to Europeans', refugees should return to native countries to rebuild

    The Dalai Lama, told an audience that 'Europe belongs to the Europeans' and that refugees should return to their native countries to rebuild them.

    Speaking at a conference in Sweden's third-largest city of Malmö on Wednesday, home to a large immigrant population, the Tibetan spiritual leader, said Europe was 'morally responsible' for helping 'a refugee really facing danger against their life'.

    The 83-year-old Tibetan, who fled the capital Lhasa in fear of his life after China poured troops into the region to crush an uprising said: 'Receive them, help them, educate them… but ultimately they should develop their own country.

    'I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,' he said, adding they should make clear to refugees that 'they ultimately should rebuild their own country'.

    Revered by millions of Buddhists around the world, and regarded by his many supporters as a visionary in the vein of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, the Dalai Lama was speaking three days after the far-right populist party Sweden Democrats made gains in the country's general election on Sunday.

    The anti-immigration party came in third, behind Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's Social Democrats and the opposition conservative Moderates in the Nordic nation which in 2015 took in the highest number of asylum seekers per capita in Europe.

    With 17.6 per cent of votes, up 4.7 points from the 2014 election, the rise is not as dramatic as the increase the party saw between 2010 and 2014, which saw a 7.2 point increase for the party.

    It also falls short of the expectation '20 to 30 per cent' leader Jimmie Åkesson had for his party.

    However head of the party's parliamentary group, Mattias Karlsson, said polling institutes had simply overcompensated the Sweden Democrats after largely underestimated them in previous elections.

    He told AFP: 'All parties want to be as big as possible but we are the big winners of the election.

    The exiled spiritual leader, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989, has also made similar comments concerning refugees in Germany in 2016.

    Speaking to German reporters in 2016 he said: 'Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country.

    'Germany is Germany. There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult.

    'From a moral point of view, too, I think that the refugees should only be admitted temporarily.'

    He later clarified his compassion for those fleeing war and refugees but said they should be helped in order to return to their homes.

    The Dalai Lama has remained in exile since 1959, when he fled the national uprising in Tibet and crossed the border into India, where he was granted political asylum.

    Don't do as I do, do as I say.

    If he was not a famous, wealthy, powerful individual, but just a 'normal' refugee who had been living in another country for almost 60 years, then if not his kids born in that country, his grandchildren at the very least should be regarded as being citizens of the new country with every right to live there.

    You're making him sound to be a pauper living in a cave or a mud hut, with only the occasional donated scraps of stale bread and rainwater to sustain him.

    Perhaps he means that Europe has learned all that is useful from immigrants and now they can be self sufficient. We British have learned all the culinary secrets of the east, and soon AI and robotics will replace the manual labour which required the import of a labour force from third world countries.

    Brexit makes much more sense now. But what if the robots were assembled in the Asia or the Eastern European countries, wouldn't that be almost the same thing? Also what ff the AI decided that they wanted worker rights and formed a union? Interesting scenario's. In my opinion they should just change the EPL timetable to daily matches instead of just weekends all throughout the year. 15 Test match series with India and Aus and more Rugby or whatever id the third favourite sport.

    Hes afraid to go back to his country because he is afraid of being persecuted, or because his life would be in danger.

    That is the definition of "refugee" hence why it is hypocritical for him to say. It doesnt matter if he is willing to go back or not, its that he cant, which is true for all real refugees.

    Obviously not all who claim to be refugees are real refugees some are economic migrants.

    But the Syrians pouring into Europe have legitimate cases to seek asylum considering what is going on in their country.

    Whether Europe wants or even should accept more of them or not is a different story.

    Duh, this is exactly the same status as refugees, hence why they are known as such. He of all people should understand why someone might flee their land because their life is in danger.

    Why only focus on the "refugees" ? So other non refugees shouldnt stay in their native countries and help to progress it further? Some of them cant return because it is still unsafe.
