What a ridiculous title. In what is presumably the best, and most sympathy-dredging photo the book`s author and publishers could find, we see a violently out of control man in Hungary who grabbed his wife and infant child and threw them down on the train tracks and then threw himself of top of them, basically threatening to kill them and himself, because they weren`t being immediately allowed to leave Hungary for Germany. Last time I checked, Hungary was in Europe, and not a dangerous or war-sticken place. This so-called ``fortress`` called Europe let in over a million undocumented migrants within a few months last year, over 65 percent of them being young single men, without even demanding any proof that they were coming from war zones, something unprecedented in history. But even that is obviously not enough for some.
