The current situation in Europe concerning the huge wave of Middle Eastern immigrants oddly reiterates the point made by author Laura Numeroff in her children’s book If you Give a Mouse a Cookie: If you give someone what they want, they are going to want more. Concerning Europe, once they opened their borders and let the first wave of migrants in with arms wide open, they’re obligated to give the same hospitality to the the second, and the third, and the fourth, and possibly endless waves of migrants flooding into the continent. Some European countries are finding out that they have bit off more than they can chew in the ever growing crisis, and are starting to make their borders stricter, but once you give a mouse a cookie, they are going to want some milk too.
As the first migrants enter countries like Germany, Italy, and Sweden, they tell their families and friends back at home that they can get the same treatment too if they emigrate. As the first wave trickles in, the second wave washes into the EU based on the promises of good treatment and hospitality. The third wave floods in, and eventually the EU has too many immigrants all coming on the premise that there are cookies for everyone. Germany and Austria already are tightening their borders, and Denmark is even taking out ads in Middle Eastern countries explaining that they will not accept migrants. These, amongst other signs, show that the EU already have too many migrants, and the waves are just getting larger and larger.
Eventually the European cookie jar will run out of handouts, and the migrants will demand for the promised hospitality given to so many of their other family members and loved ones. What will happen? Conflict in my opinion. With their ever crumbling homes in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan smoldering behind them, and the gates of their temporal European salvation being closed off in from of them, the migrants will have no option but to try to sneak in, complain loud enough, or possibly even fight their way in all because the EU has made their policies of cookie handouts too liberal with no strong restrictions. No matter how you look at it, there is inevitably going to be conflict in the near future concerning these migrants and the EU official immigration policies.
