By BI: More evidence that there is no massive Middle East “refugee” crisis — but only a determined, liberal-driven, Muslim invasion of Europe — has come with the news that the Iraqi refugee family made famous in a press photograph has flown back to Iraq only six months after being given asylum in Germany.
New Observer The family—Laith Majid; his wife, Nada Adel; their sons Moustafa, aged 18; Ahmed, 17; and Taha, nine; along with seven-year-old daughter Nour—landed on the island of Kos in August 2015, at the height of the Angela Merkel-inspired nonwhite invasion.
A press photographer snapped the now famous picture of Majid weeping as he carried his youngest daughter off the boat. The image was seized upon by the controlled media to portray the “desperation” of the “refugees” who would “give up everything to seek safety in Europe.”
As the Bild newspaper in Germany reported in September 2015, the family had “arrived” in Berlin, and were “finally happy. They hope to live in peace, and to work,” the Bild enthused. (“Their photo goes around the world: now they are in Berlin,” Bild, September 7, 2015).
The Bild assured its readers that “as Sunnis in Shiite-ruled Iraq, they had received death threats,” and had to “sell everything to flee.” Neda Majid was quoted by Bild as saying about their “new home: that ‘the Queen of Germany, Angela Merkel, is very good. She is like a mother to us.’”
As a result of the press picture, the Majid family gave more than 100 press interviews in Berlin, to media from all over the world. Their story of “escaping from terror” and the “lifesaving efforts of Queen Merkel” became the standard “refugee” fare for the controlled media.
As a result, the Majids became the “most famous”—and certainly the most-quoted—“refugees” in the world. Now, however, it appears that the whole farce has collapsed.
The Bild newspaper decided to interview the Majid family once again to find out how they were doing in Germany six months after escaping the “hell” and “death threats” of Baghdad.
Their findings shocked even that pro-invasion newspaper: the Majid family was back in Iraq, safe and sound—even though they had claimed all along that their “lives were in danger.” (“World-famous refugee family is back in Iraq,” Bild, April 23, 2016).
The Bild explained that it was a struggle to find out where the Majids had gone. “It was as if the earth had swallowed them up. The mobile phone number no longer worked, and no one know where they were, not at the Schmidt-Knobelsdorf barracks in Spandau where they had been staying, nor the State Department of Health and Welfare.”
However, Bild eventually found them: “Their location was shocking: All are back in Iraq, the land that they had left under mortal danger.” Obviously not satisfied with “refugee” life in Berlin, they had simply flown back on one of the weekly flights from Berlin to the Iraqi capital.
Every Wednesday there are direct connections from Tegel airport in Berlin to Baghdad, which cost about €300 per person. The Majids packed their bags, “found” the money to buy their tickets home, and now live in the town of Erbil in Iraq, Bild revealed.
True to form, the Bild called their decision to return a “sad end to a perilous journey”—and not, what it actually is, proof that they were never “refugees” in the first place.
