Trump’s Muslim Ban Questioned By George Soros

The calls for a ban on Muslim people entering the U.S. from Donald Trump have met with criticism from former refugee and Holocaust survivor George Soros. New York Real Estate expert Trump has jumped to the head of the Republican pack of potential candidates for the 2016 election, but his populist rhetoric has caused concern amongst political and financial experts. Details of an interview with George Soros have been published by Forbes that show the concern the Democratic donor Soros has over the statements made by Trump about refugees, which the hedge fund expert believes provides a greater insight into the feelings of the majority towards refugees.

Born in Hungary, George Soros found himself caught up in the Holocaust before being rescued from a Nazi concentration camp at the end of World War II, according to the George Soros Website. Soros explains the feeling of being welcomed to the U.K. at the end of the Second World War and the chances given to him to study at a top quality university in London in a bid to start his financial career. The journey of George Soros then took him across the borders of the U.S. to begin his hedge fund, which had reached more than $100 million in value by 1979.

Soros believes Trump’s words are causing greater problems with Muslim people being attracted to extremist and terrorist groups. Soros believes the mistrust of refugees has already had an effect on the culture and economy of the European Union, which he fears could collapse as refugees flood into the continent to escape the conflict in Syria. The closure of borders is something European nations are already facing as the open borders policy of the European Union is threatened by the migration crisis. George Soros believes the changing attitudes of the people of the U.S. and Europe could prompt the exit of the British from the European Union, which in turn could spark a new global financial crisis.

Yeonmi Park: “Kim Jong-Un is Not a Joke” “

Kim Jong-Un, this man he is not a joke,” a tearful Yeonmi Park said during her NK News interview. “We have paradise here. This is heaven while he’s killing 25 million there.” Twenty-three-year-old Yeonmi Park escaped from North Korea when she was just thirteen years old. Her mother paid smugglers to guide them through the cold dark of night and across treacherous terrain that could have easily claimed their lives. Fleeing from the harsh rule of King Jong-Un was all that was on her mother’s mind. Yeonmi witnessed great atrocities in North Korea. She witnessed the execution of a family friend accused of watching an American-made film. Her father, a civil servant, was in prison when Yeonmi and her mother began their trek to China. He had been arrested for smuggling metal, the profits of which he saved to hire smugglers to guide his family safely out of the country. Yeonmi’s family faced starvation in her father’s absence and she, along with her mother, hired smugglers to guide them out of the country. They believed that their new lives would begin in China, but Yeonmi and her mother were faced with even more terror. Yeonmi watched as her mother was raped. She and her mother were sold into slavery. Yeonmi was kept her mother, and they were later freed. The dream of freedom was still on their minds as they began to make their way from China and through Mongolia in an attempt to reach South Korea. Yeonmi and her mother arrived in South Korea. They were unaccustomed to the freedom and had difficulty adjusting. “My father never knew this kind of democracy existed,” Yeonmi said. “There are so many things that ‘do not exist’ in North Korea. We do not have words for stress and trauma. We do not have counselors for these things. Just to have food is the happiest thing ever for me.” Yeonmi enrolled in college where she studied criminal justice. She has become a human rights activist and is an avid public speaker. Yeonmi also penned a memoir of her ordeal, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom.
