Rumors about asylum seekers (Refugees)

Since the 2015 refugee crisis, a lot of fake news has been published on social media networks and other places on the internet.

We have decided to publish a list of those fake claims and we will debunk them immediately, so you can use this post against all those people on the internet which are believing the fake claims which are made on the internet about the asylum seekers.

Asylum seekers receiving thousands of Euro’s / Dollars

Hoaxes on the web are currently circulating which claim that asylum seekers are getting thousands of dollars or euro’s from the country which they fled to.

In The Netherlands and Belgium, the hoax is claiming that the refugees are getting 4140 euro’s each month.

The hoax has been debunked by “DeHoaxWijzer“.

The money which is spend on the refugees will make the country suffer

The fake claims which are circulating are claiming that governments will suffer if they help the refugees which are coming to the country to seek asylum.

There is no doubt on the fact that the health care in many countries can use some attention, and that budgets should be released for those in need which already live in the country.

But that does not mean that the asylum seekers should be denied. If we take a look at the statistics, we can see that The Netherlands only used 0,24 (632 million Euros) of her total income to support refugees, while The Netherlands is using 7% (18 Billion Euros) of her total income to support the “weak” in her own country.

Asylum seekers deny food because it is not halal

Pictures claim that asylum seekers have denied food because it was not halal, but once you are aware of what the actual story was, you will understand why they denied the food.

The event took place between the borders of Macedonia en Greece. The refugees were held behind fences for days in bad weather. The borders were only allowed 100 people a day to access the country.

The refugees did not ask for food, the only thing they asked for was access and some shelter. The refugees denied the food in protest as they were left in horrible conditions.

After they were granted access, they did use the provided “not halal” food. The whole situation did not have any link with religion of the asylum seekers. There are asylum seekers which are not Muslim and they also denied the food.

The child ‘Aylan’ was used to awake sympathy

The claims are that the child would have been moved from places to create an better picture. These claims were released by radical hate blogs like EJ. The pictures which are shown to claim that they moved ‘Aylan’ is actually the brother of ‘Aylan’. The brother ‘Galip‘ was also found dead on the beach, and these pictures were also shared by various media outlets. So the claims that the pictures have been leaked or have been changed to awake sympathy are completely false!
