Far from posing a threat to Western lifestyles the migrants from the Middle East and Africa help Europe reaffirm its key values through their suffering, columnist Boštjan Videmšek writes on the Belgian blog portal The Chronikler: "The incomers from Syria are waging one of the most important battles of them all. It is the battle for the survival of the open and humanitarian Europe, indeed its very humanistic foundations. They are persisting in this conflict - which is also being waged for every freedom-loving European's sake - armed only with their own courage, wits and steely resolution. At root, this is a profoundly revolutionary struggle, and one that actually carries the potential to change the continent for the better."
