The article also touches on the EU's tightening asylum policies and the controversial recruitment of Afghan refugees by Iran to fight in Syria.

Young male refugees in Germany: Protect or pose a threat?

01 Jun 2016  |  Al Jazeera
The article discusses the situation of young male refugees from Syria, focusing on the dilemma they face between military conscription and seeking asylum in Europe. It highlights the story of Adham, a Syrian marine engineer who fled to avoid being drafted into the army. The article also covers the political rhetoric in Europe, where right-wing parties like Germany's AfD question the legitimacy of granting asylum to young male refugees, suggesting they should stay and fight for their country. The piece touches on the broader European and North American perspectives on this issue, including comments from politicians like Czech President Milos Zeman and former US President Donald Trump. The article also addresses the challenges faced by conscientious objectors like Adham and Samer, who reject the notion of spilling more blood in a war that does not align with their values.
