Clooney In Berlin.

During the premiere of the new movie 'Hail Caesar' George Clooney spoke to 'Sky News' about the migrant situation saying the US needs to take in more people fleeing violence from around the world and saying the US taking in 10,000 Syrians is not good enough.

The city where he spoke to 'Sky News' has temporarily housed until it can find more permanent accommodation for them 80,000 Syrians in the old Nazi airport Templhof in its hangars in Berlin. Germany has a whole has taken in at least 1 million people from Syria and places such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, and possibly Palestinians fleeing the ongoing tension between it and Israel.

Clooney will speak to Angela Merkel whilst he is in Berlin to see what more the US and Hollywood can do to help refugees and migrants in general. Donations will be made to refugee and migrant causes at the Berlin Film Festival.

Clooney's wife Amal is herself an Arab from Lebanon and when she married Clooney she no doubt broke the hearts of millions of women who adore and admire Clooney.

Dieter Kosslick the film festivals director says Germany has a duty to help the migrants and refugees because of its Nazi past and it is ironic indeed that the 80,000 refugees in Berlin are being housed for the moment in Templhof airport as I just mentioned because it was built in the time of the Nazis who well lets say weren't exactly known for their kindness to people who it considered un - German.

Many places in Europe such as Germany and Sweden have flung open the doors to refugees and the UK has taken in or will be taking in 20,000 but from the camps in Lebanon and Jordan where even King Abdullah of Jordan has said Jordan cannot take in any more fleeing people and asked the international community for help.

However many people in Europe now are getting hard hearted to the constant flow of humanity from the Middle East and the Paris attacks by IS and the sexual attacks on German women in Cologne over the New Year period by supposed men of Middle Eastern and North African appearance.

Right now even as we speak EU navies are going out to tackle the smugglers who make a living in trafficking these unfortunates across the Med or Aegean in most of the time non - seaworthy boats.

I think a combination of compassion must be shown to these people if they are genuine but also we must have a hard headed realism too about the views of Native Europeans and be on our guard against terrorists posing as migrants.
