Pope Francis Says 'It is a Social Fact' That Europe is Seeing an 'Arab Invasion' and That's a Good Thing
posted by Pastorius at
Pope Francis referred to an 'Arab invasion' when he was recalling the moments of mass migration to Europe in history, according the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano.
'Today we can talk about an Arab invasion. It is a social fact,' he told his audience.
The pope went on to explain that the arrival of migrants, predominantly from Syria and Iraq, should be seen from a wider perspective in time and impact.
He insisted Europe will 'go forward and find itself enhanced by the exchange among cultures.'
Speaking proudly of Europe, the Pope declared that the continent 'can bring about a certain unity to the world.'
