Thus spake His Holiness the Dalai Lama:
The Dalai Lama says Europe risks losing its identity by taking in too many migrants and warned: 'Germany cannot become an Arab country.'It's very sad when the Dalai Lama is a more staunch defender of Christendom than the Pope.
Tibet's spiritual leader says refugees should only stay temporarily and return home to rebuild their countries when the conflicts have ended.
The Dalai Lama, who has himself lived in exile for over half a century, said: 'When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering.
'A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now.'
In an interview with German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, he said: 'Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country. Germany is Germany.
'There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult.'
He said 'from a moral point of view too, I think the refugees should only be admitted temporarily'.
'The goal should be that they return and help rebuild their countries.'
