MIGRANT CRISIS: WHEN RESCUE BECOMES A FERRY SERVICE

The EU is limping from crisis to crisis. A currency and an economy under fire, an expensive migration crisis that puts pressure on open borders policy, the rights of women violated by Islamic rape culture, now almost daily terror attacks and globalists who vow to salvage their broke ideology of destroying the grassroots national democracy in favor of globalist power blocs. 

UPDATE: Something very strange is happening in the Mediterranean this spring (...) All is not as it seems. Right under the noses of the Italian authorities and the EU border agency, Frontex, a charitable 'ferry service' has been launched, with shiny new boats and sympathetic staff allegedly colluding with the people smugglers controlling the migrant trade. A ferry service from Libya to Italy — direct — provided by private NGO 'rescue boats' which have about as much to do with rescue as I have with diplomacy. The Italian Parliament is aware of this apparent collusion. At a hearing in March its President Laura Ravetto raised a question about the 'excessive collaboration' between NGOs and migrant smugglers. She said the allegation of apparent collusion had been raised in two internal reports by Frontex. One of the reports said immigrants leaving North Africa had been given information in advance the route to follow to be picked up by a NGO boats. The other report said there was a recorded case of criminal gangs taking migrants directly to an NGO boat. (More)

 TURKEY HAS THE EU OVER A BARREL


A year to the day after it was signed off amid much fanfare the EU-Turkey deal on migrants is in peril, with pressure growing from inside and out. While the statistics show a resounding success, the EU is now effectively held “over a barrel” according to critics, with President Racep Erdogan clashing with member states and Brussels chiefs on domestic as well as international issues. Critics have long feared the deal gives Turkey far too much political power over the EU, acting as an effective Sword of Damocles over eurocrats’ heads. (...) Ukip MEP Jane Collins said the agreement had been a political disaster for Brussels and has left it totally powerless to challenge President Erdogan on his repeated human rights breaches. She told Express.co.uk: “Turkey has the EU over a barrel over this issue of migration because the EU is a magnet for illegal migration from Africa and the Middle East. (...)

She added: “There needs to be a strong message sent out that we will be turning back boats from whence they came, that we will not be permitting huge numbers of migrants travelling from Turkey into EU countries in order to travel through to other richer countries.” The Socialist and Democrats (S&D) group in the EU parliament, led by the Italian MEP Gianni Pitella, is calling on Brussels to “freeze” the accession talks with Ankara saying it is not suitable for EU membership. But such a move would almost certainly kill off the migrant pact and Manfred Weber, chairman of the centre-right EPP grouping, said it should be kept in place. (More)

Background

Four days prior to the Dutch general elections a serious diplomatic spat broke out between the Netherlands and Turkey over the demand by Turkey to campaign in the Netherlands for yet another Erdogan power grab. After the Governments were unable to negotiate terms and Erdogan called the Dutch Government 'Nazi remnants' the Dutch liberal PM decided to take a stand. (More)

Once more the Erdogan regime is threatening to use the one year old refugee deal as leverage to do the Turkish bidding. Moreover the news broke last week that a year ago, as part of the EU deal with Turkey, the Dutch PM Rutte as chairman of the European Council, the German chancellor Merkel and then Turkish PM Davutoglu made a secret arrangement: Germany and the Netherlands would take 150-250,000 refugees off Turkey's hands.

The idea was that Merkel and Rutte would persuade other member states to accept 'their fair share' of this contingent of refugees. For good reasons, this never happened. The Germans and the Dutch are still on the books to absorb these 150-250,000 migrants...a year! The Turks are so angry, they are now threatening to blow up the entire deal. Moreover, the Turks say the EU never forked over the 6 billion euros it would pay for the upkeep of refugees in Turkey.

POLL: EUROPEANS SUPPORT MUSLIM BAN




Chatham House graph

New research points to significant and widespread levels of public anxiety over immigration from mainly Muslim states. President Donald Trump’s executive order to ban citizens of seven Muslim-majority states from entering the US for 90 days, and temporarily freeze all refugee arrivals (including Syrians indefinitely), has been interpreted widely as an attempt to curtail the inward migration of Muslims, which Trump and his supporters argue pose a threat to national security. Trump’s policy has generated a backlash among some of Europe’s leaders. Angela Merkel’s spokesman said the chancellor had ‘explained’ the UN Refugee Convention to the president in a phone call discussing the order, while London Mayor Sadiq Khan argued that the invitation to the president for a state visit to Britain in 2017 should be withdrawn until the ban is rescinded. Meanwhile, leaders of Europe’s populist right-wing parties, including Geert Wilders, Nigel Farage and Matteo Salvini, have heaped praise on Trump.

Amid these competing views, where do the public in European countries stand on the specific issue of Muslim immigration? There is evidence to suggest that both Trump and these radical right-wing parties reflect an underlying reservoir of public support. Drawing on a unique, new Chatham House survey of more than 10,000 people from 10 European states, we can throw new light on what people think about migration from mainly Muslim countries. Our results are striking and sobering. They suggest that public opposition to any further migration from predominantly Muslim states is by no means confined to Trump’s electorate in the US but is fairly widespread.

In our survey, carried out before President Trump’s executive order was announced, respondents were given the following statement: ‘All further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped’. They were then asked to what extent did they agree or disagree with this statement. Overall, across all 10 of the European countries an average of 55% agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped, 25% neither agreed nor disagreed and 20% disagreed. Majorities in all but two of the ten states agreed, ranging from 71% in Poland, 65% in Austria, 53% in Germany and 51% in Italy to 47% in the United Kingdom and 41% in Spain. In no country did the percentage that disagreed surpass 32%. (More)

NGOs MASS TRAFFICKING MIGRANTS ACROSS THE MEDITERRANEAN




Dec 3, 2016 For two months, using marinetraffic.com, Gefira monitored movements of ships owned by NGO. More information.

You knew this was happening. Now there's proof. More information on Gefira: NGOs Armada operating off the coast of Libya.
For two months, using marinetraffic.com, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from data.unhcr.org. We have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness of a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation. NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities. Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. 
NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 mile away from the rescue spot. The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms, Sea-Watch.org, Sea-Eye and Life Boat. (More)

GLOBALISTS PLEDGE TO RESETTLE 360,000 REFUGEES


In yesterday's speech at the UNGA -- described by the media as a final victory round -- Obama introduced the term "global integration," which sounds better than John Kerry's world without borders. Obama made plain that he means to flood the US with "refugees," for the most part adherents to a hostile ideology. Obama garnered pledges from dozens of countries to resettle some 360,000 refugees, doubling the number of slots that were available last year. How has illegal become legal? Because the autocratic globalists say so. It is no coincidence that Syria's neighbors don't take refugees. As one has said, our country is just too valuable. So the coordinator of this Hijra (see the vid above) is funneling the Islamic migration stream towards the West. The US, France and the UK have been the most vocal about the civil war in Syria, but let's not forget who are the main instigators and beneficiaries of the wars in Syria and north Africa: Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE and a number of other Gulf states with oil interests in the region. The same Sunni Arab countries united in the OIC that is hugely influential in circles of globalists. Read Gas Plays an Explosive Role in the War in Syria for a total picture. We tend to look at these wars and issues as separate, but in the end it all hangs together. Each party has its own interests with the citizens of Western countries in the role of sacrificial animals.
