Refugees who expected to be welcomed with open arms, were in for a rude awakening. The arrival of hundreds of Yemenis has fostered a wave of opposition giving birth to what is considered South Korea’s first organised anti-migrant movement.
“Let’s kick out fake refugees!” shouts heard during a 30 June rally on the island which is part of the anti-immigration sentiment overtaking the country.
There were protests in Jeju and elsewhere, including Seoul, during the summer.
“From an early age, they learn to treat women like sex slaves and to beat them as they like,” Yang Eun-ok, a leader of the Jeju protest, tells the New York Times. “They can take many wives and produce many children. Now, there are 500 of them. In 10 and 20 years, how many of them will there be?”
Everyone loves Islamic immigrants. Allah be praised.
