Dalai Lama: ‘Europe Belongs to Europeans’, Refugees Should Return and Rebuild Homelands.
The leader of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama, commented during a press conference in Sweden that “Europe belongs to the Europeans.” He made it clear that he believes refugees should return to their homes and rebuild their nation. Instead, the migrant community is growing and could soon outnumber natural born citizens if Europe continues with their open borders.

“Receive them, help them, educate them… but ultimately they should develop their own country,” said the 83-year-old Tibetan.
“I think Europe belongs to the Europeans,” he added, stressing that countries like Germany and Sweden should make clear that refugees must “return to their homelands and rebuild them”.
The Dalai Lama was in Sweden to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the country’s anti-poverty efforts. Sweden democrats are known nationally for their opposition against mass migration and they received a record share of votes during their recent election.
The famous Buddhist icon has made comments on his view of immigration before. He believes that it is morally right to maintain a continent as the homeland for its native people. He also mentioned that Europe has “too many” refugees and should not become an Arab country because, “Germany is Germany.”
