Trending issue in Georgia: Islamic terrorists and migrants

Summary

Georgian nation expressed its opinion by this voting [Presidential elections], but as far as I know, people’s concerns are related not as much to these elections, as to the situation in the region, to the flow of Islamic terrorists. They have settled pretty well in Georgia and the population awaits that the government will resolve this issue somehow. There are lots of migrants in Georgia and they feel quite well there. It has to be said that this is a trending issue, however barely discussed

Disproof

According to public opinion polls, Georgians are mostly concerned about economical issues rather than about the threat of terrorism or migration. According to the UN's 2017 International Migration Report, migrants make up a total of 2% of the Georgian population and there is a 2,63% increase in migration to Georgia over the past 17 years.

Europe on a verge of civil war

Europe is on a verge of civil war. Protests in France accelerate the creation of a Caliphate in Europe.

Washington benefits from this situation, because this is weakening Europe’s position on the international stage. The US wants to avoid a Ukrainization of France, because this threatens the final degradation of NATO.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about civil war and Islamisation.
