Is it time for EU to eliminate foreign aid?

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) has some dire warnings regarding the social condition in Europe.

Europe is experiencing its biggest depression since the end of the Second World War, with the number of people receiving food aid from the IFRC nearly doubling from 2.3 million in 2009 to 4.1 million today. Twelve per cent of Europe’s workforce is out of a job, while EU figures show that 120 million people – nearly a quarter of the bloc’s population – are at risk of poverty and social exclusion.

Is it time to recall the old adage that charity begins at home?

It’s a great idea, but the issue is that the hearts of the EU people and government bleed for the underprivileged. It’s very much the same in Canada where we give money to Syria, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Sudan, Egypt, Pakistan, Palestine, Afghanistan and many more third world countries. Many of these countries openly support terrorism, jihad and oppose our freedoms and democracy. They hate us! But our tolerant Canadians hearts bleed for these underprivileged people who hate us. At least our government’s heart bleeds for them. Yes as wonderful of an idea it is to end all foreign aid to enemy nations it will NEVER happen. If it did happen it would be politically incorrect and someone in the government would be accused of being a racists.
