So what did they expect? Austria opened its doors to Muslim asylum seekers, now they worry about Jihadists in their midst

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2014

Check out all of our posts on “welcoming” Austria as it grew its Muslim population in recent years.   And, see our post yesterday on rates of Islamic radicalization in other European countries.

From Reuters:

 

(Reuters) – Authorities suspect around 130 people resident in Austria – most of them foreign nationals – have allied themselves with Islamist militants fighting abroad, officials in Vienna said on Friday, raising their estimate by nearly a third.

Public safety director Konrad Kogler told a news conference the 130 figure included “people actively participating in combat as well as ones who have returned to Austria, because both groups of people are relevant for us”.

He thought around two-thirds of them had come back to Austria and one-third were in battle or on the way there.

Officials were tracking the target group’s foreign travel and monitoring their activities when they return given the security risk they might pose, he said.

He said 40 of the 130 were Austrian citizens. The others were primarily from Russia, the Balkans and Turkey.

[....]

Kogler did not confirm reports that the nine suspects – one aged just 17 – were Chechens, but said many were Russian citizens.

The suspects had mostly come to Austria as young people and got political asylum that could be revoked should they be convicted of joining a terrorist organization, officials said.

Big deal!  I am sure those budding Jihadists are concerned about the revocation of their political refugee status!

Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff warns of open borders invitation to ISIL

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2014

They will be coming in with the “children!”

It is all over the news in the last few days, but just to be sure you have seen it, here is CNS News on our southern border and the Islamists’ great opportunity.  LOL!  I should post this in our new category — So what did they expect?

It isn’t really funny, but go back and check out our post on James O’Keefe, dressed as Osama bin Laden, as he wades (unimpeded) across the Rio Grande.

Secretary of Defense Hagel and Joint Chiefs Dempsey at a press conference this past week.

CNS News (hat tip: Erich):

(CNSNews.com) – Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon press briefing yesterday that “because of open borders and immigration issues,” the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is an “immediate threat.”

In the context of this ISIL threat, Dempsey said he had had conversations with his European colleagues “about their southern flank.” He did not specifically mention the U.S.-Mexico border, which is the southern flank of the United States.

Seven years ago, then-National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell publicly warned that terrorists were coming across the U.S.-Mexico border, and that “a significant number of Iraqis” had been “smuggled across illegally” the previous year.

We have been writing about the OTMs (Other than Mexicans) for years here at RRW too (with a special interest in the Somalis coming in that way).

And, by the way, although we have an exposed “southern flank” so does Europe as we have reported in our series on the ‘invasion of Europe’ where the mostly Muslim illegal migrants come through North Africa (and the Libyan hell hole that Obama and his gals created) and across the Mediterranean Sea.

European study: rates of Islamic radicalization of immigrant population vary from country to country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2014

With some in the Obama Administration (but not our dear leader himself) warning of the threat to America from Jihadists who left America to fight in Syria/Iraq and possibly returning to bring their ‘skills’ to the country that “welcomed them as strangers;” and European leaders shaking in their boots about returning “citizens,” it is no surprise that someone asked the question—how many left the safety of their adopted European country to fight for Allah?

How many Europeans and Americans are behind those hoods? Photo: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/16/terrifying-rise-of-isis-iraq-executions

Just think about this!  These European countries welcomed the poor suffering Muslim “refugees” who then used the social services of the welcoming Europeans to grow strong and healthy young fighters for the Jihad—to build the Caliphate.   America is doing this as well (we are such suckers!).

From Homeland Security Today:

All across Europe, security services have become increasing candid about the threat their nations face from terrorism linked to Syria and Iraq by the establishment of the Islamic State (IS). Their openness about the scale of the problem they face is clear. They are trying to prepare Europeans that another terrorist atrocity cannot be prevented in the West. The problems with preventing people from traveling overseas and potentially returning ready to conduct acts of extreme violence — as leaders of the IS have claimed they will do — are simply too huge.

Surely, some may ask, are some countries more vulnerable to terrorism than others? The radicalization rates of Muslims across Europe cannot be uniform. There must be variances.

While there are small numbers of Islamic extremists who continue to travel to Somalia and Nigeria, it seems that the campaign against the Bashar Al Assad regime in Syria has become the flagship campaign in which to become involved. With large swaths of Syria and Iraq now the keystone in the creation of a new Islamic State, that attraction is only likely to grow.

A study of data released by the various security agencies of thirteen European countries reveals a mixed picture when they are analyzed in the context of the local demographics. The results of this study are published here for the first time.

Homeland Security Today should just have published the information in a chart format, but the data is spread throughout the text.  Rates are based on the number of estimated Jihadists who left the country and the Muslim population of that European country.

All of the countries analyzed are not mentioned, but here are the rates for some (in order of the least radicalized percentage to the greatest):

Sweden:  1 in 30,000 (have left to join the Islamic killers)

Spain:  1 in 20,000

France:  1 in 8,000

Albania:  1 in 7,000

Netherlands:  1 in 7,000

Germany:  1 in 6,000

UK: 1 in 4,000

Norway:  1 in 3,400

Finland:  1 in 1,000

There are several paragraphs on Turkey, you can read the rest yourself.

This is all about the pols getting your minds ready for another big one.

Bulgaria may extend border fence with Turkey to slow invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2014

This is one more in our ‘invasion of Europe’ series.  And, one more story about tiny Bulgaria being beaten-up by the international humanitarian industrial complex working tirelessly to erase borders worldwide.

From Reuters:

(Reuters) – Bulgaria may extend the fence at its border with Turkey to stop more refugees from Syria and Iraq entering illegally, a top interior ministry official said on Wednesday, while the foreign minister warned of “terrorism imports” to the EU member state.

The problem border is the one with Turkey.

The Balkan country is considering adding 130 km (80 miles) of barbed-wire fencing to an existing 33-km fence along the 240-km southeastern border which, the interior ministry’s Chief Secretary Svetoslav Lazarov, said would save 2 million levs ($1.36 million) a month on policing the area.

“It would be a prohibitively facility,” Lazarov told reporters. “Our country has enough border points and those who want to come as a refugee can go through them.”

More than 10,000 refugees, mainly Syrians, entered Bulgaria illegally last year from Turkey and, in an attempt to limit the influx, authorities deployed over 1,000 police officers.

Bulgarian authorities said the Black Sea state could face an even greater influx in the coming months due to intensified fighting in Iraq in recent weeks.

There is more, including the usual whack from the human rights agitators.  I always wonder why they aren’t whacking Turkey for letting the migrants pass through to the Bulgarian border.  Legitimate asylum seekers are supposed to ask for protection in the first safe country they come to—in this case Turkey.

Minnesota: Somali refugee gets 18 years for attempted murder

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2014

Why such a stiff sentence for ‘attempted’ murder of one gang member by another?

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune last week (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A St. Paul man was sentenced to 18 years in prison for what a Hennepin County prosecutor called a brazen and unprovoked shooting at a Minneapolis food store last year.

Zakaria Yusuf, 25, was convicted of attempted second-degree murder in June. His sentence was the maximum allowed under the state’s sentencing guidelines. Judge Daniel Moreno said Yusuf continues to be arrogant and to have a complete disregard for other people’s lives.

Judge Daniel Moreno: Yusuf is arrogant and has a complete disregard for human life.

According to the criminal complaint and testimony at the trial, the victim, who is a member of the Somali Outlawz Gang, was standing outside the store at 201 W. Lake St. on Sept. 22, talking with two of his friends. Yusuf, who was known to associate with the St. Pistol Boys gang in St. Paul and Somali gangs in the Cedar-Riverside area, walked up to the group, pulled a gun from his waistband and fired it at the victim, hitting him in the arm.

The victim ran into the store and Yusuf kept firing, hitting him several more times. The victim collapsed and Yusuf fired one more time from the doorway, with the bullet hitting the victim’s arm when he threw it across his head for protection. He was hospitalized at Hennepin County Medical Center and eventually was discharged.

However, the victim refused to cooperate with the prosecution and was placed under court-ordered electronic home monitoring to be sure he would show up at the trial.

Meanwhile in Canada, a research project sought to find out why so many Somali youths in Edmonton were turning up dead, but it looks like the same old excuses—not enough opportunity, struggling with the cultural differences, blah, blah, blah.

Click here for our archive on Somali gang violence in Edmonton.  There need to be serious consequences for immigrant criminal gangs, maybe this judge is doing exactly the right thing with this stiff sentence for the arrogant punk.

By the way, as usual I couldn’t find a readily identifiable photo of the convicted Minnesota man, but found this one of someone (a mean looking dude) with the same name from the same city who in 2010 was arrested for beating a “good Samaritan.”  Surely they didn’t let that Zakaria Yusuf out that quickly!  Or, did they?

And, just think! You raised these ‘youths’ on your dime!

Commentary: FRANCE …… MIGRANTS’ LAND OF HOPE OR DISAPPOINTMENT?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 15, 2014

Editor:  This is a guest post by reader ‘pungentpeppers’ giving us a more vivid picture of what is happening with illegal migration in France (and Europe generally).  Note our post from earlier in the week—From Catalonia to Calais….

 

“In France, as here in the U.S., the press often shows illustrations of women and children in stories about illegal migrants and refugees.” But, the French are mostly “fed up.” Photo: L’Express. Pascal Leray.

 

From ‘pungentpeppers’ (emphasis is RRW’s):

Illegal migration is stressing the French Republic.

From Lyon in the south to Calais in the north, from the Paris suburbs of Bagnolet and Saint-Ouen, and east to the German border, and south to Menton on the Mediterranean, our basket of news from France is filled with recent worrisome stories.

Last year France ranked third, after Germany and America, among rich countries for asylum applications received.  French authorities handled almost 66,000 asylum requests, but granted protection to fewer than 11,500. Some migrants, refused asylum, stay on illegally. The rest join hundreds of others who want to leave France to try their luck elsewhere.  Many head for the northern port city of Calais from where they hope to smuggle themselves into the United Kingdom.

Calais in Disarray 

Angry mobs of hundreds of Sudanese and Eritrean migrants desperate to leave France battled each other last week in the northern French port city of Calais.  Wielding iron bars and knives, and hurling masses of stones and rocks, they fought for control of an area of land from which they could sneak onto trucks headed for the U.K.  More than 50 migrants were injured in the melee. The fighters are part of a group of about 2,000 Africans and Middle Easterners currently encamped in Calais, sleeping in makeshift tents, waiting for a chance to smuggle themselves abroad.  Conditions are rough, and numerous fights have broken out over food and supplies.  French police have at times bulldozed the migrants’ camp sites, citing health concerns – including an outbreak of scabies – but the migrants keep returning.

Truck drivers heading for the U.K. are terrified.  One driver, Tommy Harrison, was ambushed by a gang in Calais.  He said: “One of them pulled a knife on me while others climbed up on top of the cab and cut a hole in the curtain to get inside. It was very frightening.  There was very little I could do. About 10 of them got in. It’s hopeless going to the gendarmes [French police] because they don’t want to know, so I drove to a lorry park where I knew there would be other drivers and we got them out.”

The French blame the British for the terrible situation in Calais.  If Britain wasn’t such an attractive nuisance, the migrants wouldn’t try to go there, and Calais wouldn’t be having all of this trouble.

The New “French Resistance”?

It’s obvious that France isn’t measuring up when it comes to the uninvited migrants’ expectations for hospitality.  Instead of greeting needy foreigners with a warm “bienvenu” (welcome), and offering them housing, food coupons and interpreter services, the French instead give them the cold shoulder.  Perhaps it’s the famed “French Résistance” technique.  Migrants arrive thinking they will wear the French down – but instead the French wear the migrants down and try to make them want to leave.  If going to Britain isn’t appealing, the second prime destination choice for migrants escaping the country of fine wine and camembert is the land of ale and schnitzel.

To Germany By Train

Migrants have begun to head east from France to Germany in search of the elusive European “better life”.  They travel by train, using tickets purchased from smugglers.  So far this year, over 1,000 illegal migrants have taken advantage of Paris-Frankfurt rail links that connect the two countries.  The trend worries Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the governor of the German state of Saarland.  Her region is at the receiving end of the migration and is responsible for handling the asylum applicants arriving from France.  As in the U.S., an increasing number of migrants pose as unaccompanied minors who are guaranteed special youth housing, medical care, and schooling paid for by local German taxpayers.  German Chancellor Merkel is seeking French cooperation on the issue.  Perhaps Germany should do like the French, and send the migrants back to Italy?

One Way or Round Trip?

Tens of thousands of illegal boat migrants have landed in Italy after sailing across the Mediterranean from Africa.  Many of these newcomers, dissatisfied with the little that Italy has offered them, now dream of a better life in Germany, Britain or Sweden.  On the way to dreamland, however, lies an inconvenient nation called France and the very bothersome French border police.

Faced with a massive influx of migrants leaving Italy, the French border police, newly reinforced, is concentrating its efforts on catching illegal travelers entering the south of France through Menton, Lyon, and other places.  Many illegal migrants travel by rail, and the French border police have been arresting about one hundred a day, mostly Eritreans, on the trains and in train stations.  They are then sent back to Italy.  Thus the passengers, who planned a one-way trip, find that the French force them to travel round trip!  Some travelers, however, show up sick.

Kidney Dialysis and a Transplant for Free!

Doctors and medical staff who treat kidney disease patients in the southern French city of Lyon are extra busy these days.  Seriously ill kidney patients, from countries like Albania, Kosovo and Georgia, are arriving in Lyon seeking immediate medical treatment.  Per the typical scenario, the traveler arrives at the train station very ill.  He is immediately transported to a hospital emergency room.  There the doctors see that the patient needs kidney dialysis.  At that point the patient files for asylum, even if citizens from his country are not eligible.  He then starts his emergency medical treatments.  Per French law, three months after an asylum request is made, the patient becomes eligible for full free taxpayer-paid medical coverage and he is put on a waiting list for a kidney transplant.  Eventually, even though his asylum claim is denied, the patient is granted special status as an “unwell foreigner”.

Per a report in the French “Le Monde” newspaper, well-organized networks are sending seriously ill patients to France as a business.  The “medical refugees” arrive in Lyon knowing the full extent to which they can exploit the French system, have the names and addresses of dialysis centers in the city, and are quite open about coming to France “purely for health reasons”.

These new foreign patients are putting a serious strain on health facilities.  For example, the Edouard-Herriot hospital has only 24 kidney dialysis patient beds and is running at maximum capacity.  Besides the strain on medical facilities, unchecked migration is also contributing to a housing crisis in France.

Migrants Sleeping Rough:  If Not Under a Bridge, Then in Front of City Hall

Migrants quit France for lack of housing, per a “Newsweek” report.  “I’ve just been in Paris,” says Samuel (an Eritrean migrant), “and even the people I knew who had got asylum there were sleeping under a bridge.”

Last week a group of 200 Africans, mostly from Mali, set up camp outside the city hall of Bagnolet, a suburb of Paris. Joined by French anarchists, they demanded housing after the abandoned building where they had been squatting was destroyed in an arson fire.  The local authority found housing for two families who had school-age children.  However, the municipality issued a communique stating that they already have 3,000 applicants for social housing and do not have the means to relocate or house the rest of the migrants – and sent the police to evict them.  The migrants then sought shelter under a highway bridge at first, but later settled themselves into another squat in the same suburb, an unoccupied building that used to serve as an employment agency.

Saint-Ouen – First Syrians, Now Kosovars or are they Kurds?

Back in April, I wrote about the refugees from Syria who occupied a city park in the Paris suburb of Saint-Ouen.  After the municipality locked them out of the park, Syrian women continued to arrive, settling themselves on the sidewalk along the park fence.  Because there were children with them, the French authorities expedited the asylum process and located housing for the families.  The news of their victory must have spread, because in July a new group arrived on the scene.

This time, the municipality quickly locked up the park to prevent a recurrence of April’s events.  Instead, the latest group of arrivals – about 40 families – set up camp on and alongside a grassy strip under a highway bridge at the entrance to Saint-Ouen.  This new group was different from the April arrivals.  They did not seem interested in seeking asylum.  Their toddlers sometimes ran into the road amid the automobiles.  The parents allowed their children to go and beg from passing motorists.  During the evenings, the men fought over food and clothing donations.  Per William Delannoy, the mayor of Saint-Ouen, the men were taking goods donated to them by car to local markets for resale. At the time he believed they were not refugees but Kurdish nomads from Syria.  Per a later report, the municipality checked the group members’ papers and determined that although some were Syrian, most of them were Kosovar Albanians – and thus ineligible for asylum.

In France, as here in the U.S., the press often shows illustrations of women and children in stories about illegal migrants and refugees.  An August “L’Express” report about the latest Saint-Ouen migrants refers to the group as “Syrians” and features at the top a photoshot showing a pair of cute little fair-haired girls grinning and flashing peace signs.  How do the French people view such propaganda?  Below the article, the most popular reader comment with over 100 upvotes states simply, “les Français commencent à en avoir marre!” or “the French are getting fed up!”

Editor:  I was just imagining what America could look like someday with illegal alien squatters living under bridges and in encampments in US city parks (those cities away from the border!)—it will make news like that from Ferguson, MO this week look like a picnic.  Americans simply won’t tolerate it, especially those who are struggling to make ends meet themselves.  Or, is that sort of revolutionary “change” what some agitators are looking for?

African migrant invasion of Europe adds new frightening dimension—fear of Ebola

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

A Chinese news agency is reporting that possibly five of forty Eritreans trying to get into Western Europe through Albania show symptoms of Ebola.

This April photo shows men from Syria and Eritrea arriving in Albania. http://smarkos.blogspot.com/2014_04_13_archive.html

From Shanghai Daily:

TIRANA, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) — Albanian police Tuesday detained some 40 illegal immigrants from Eritrea, five of whom have symptoms of the deadly Ebola haemorrhagic fever.

Local media said the illegal immigrants were arrested near the city of Vlore, in south Albania. The five who have suspected symptoms were taken to a local hospital for further tests.

There’s no exact statistics of refugees coming from poor and war-torn African countries to Albania. Official data shows that in the first half of 2014, about 500 Eritrean and Somali immigrants were detained in Albania. Their destination is some of the Western European countries.

Albania is a country from which migrants flee, but now Africans and Middle Easterners are fleeing to the country (at least as a jumping-off place to the West).

Come on Mr. Dzubow, you can’t be serious! Change the definition of refugee? Build camps?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2014

Jason Dzubow is an immigration lawyer and blogger—The Asylumist.  I read his blog from time to time and he is not a complete open borders NUT!  I especially like the fact that he talks so openly about asylum fraud. But here I suggest his idea of changing the definition of what constitutes a “refugee” (making it easier to enter and stay in the US for broad safety reasons) and then taking away the carrots (freedom to roam about and get social services) by keeping all of the illegals in refugee camps, to be off-the-charts crazy!

Immigration lawyer Dzubow sometimes has some really sensible things to say about asylum law—here he assumes that all sides want to solve the border crisis.

I, of course, would have no objection to creating refugee camps at the US southern border to hold law-breakers until we could make travel arrangements for their return home, but his idea of creating camps (with only the bare basic necessities) for all of the aliens getting in until they could be processed as successful asylum seekers (refugees) or sent home (terrorists and criminals presumably would be found out and sent home) a non-starter.

Why?

Because the Hard Left would have a major coronary and not one of the chickens in Washington would have the testicular fortitude to stand up against them.    Does Mr. Dzubow know what they do to the likes of Sheriff Arpaio for his camp-like jails and in his case his “campers” are definitely law breakers?

In fact, open-borders activist groups in Washington, like Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, have a campaign to do away with ALL detention for anyone getting into the US illegally, imagine what they would do if we set up camps like those in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa!

Should Dzubow’s proposal to change the definition of “refugee” pass Congress, without the stick (removing the pull factor) also passing Congress, it would be all over for America (but it probably is already).

Here is my simple plan:  Just completely militarize the border and send the thousands of “kids” home right now and that will end the “pull factor” pronto!

The Asylumist:

As our country struggles to respond to the influx, I wonder whether we need a new definition of “refugee.”

Under current U.S. law, if a person is physically present in the country and meets the legal definition of refugee, he will receive asylum. This is quite a nice benefit to receive. People who get asylum are able to remain here permanently. They can eventually become residents and later citizens. They can travel, work, and attend school. They can sponsor certain family members to join them in the United States. They are sometimes eligible for government assistance. These generous benefits are a “pull” factor because they encourage refugees to seek asylum here (as opposed to staying put or seeking asylum somewhere else). The benefits also create an incentive for people to file fraudulent asylum claims.

[....]

We could simply categorize as a “refugee” anyone who says that they are afraid to return home. In other words, if someone requests asylum in the United States, they would automatically be granted asylum. This sounds like a stupid plan, you say? Everyone and their brother would seek asylum here, including terrorists and criminals. Worse, it would put asylum lawyers out of business. Maybe so, but indulge me for a moment.

O.K. we will indulge, but after the carrot is granted, this stick won’t work!

The main question is how to deal with the likely increased demand under this new system? The easiest way to reduce the “pull” of asylum would be to reduce the benefits of asylum. Basic economic theory suggests that if it is easier to obtain asylum, more people will come here, but if the benefits are reduced, less people will come here [that part is exactly right!---ed]. So in order to offset the increased number of asylum seekers caused by reducing the barriers to asylum, we would need a corresponding reduction in benefits. How much of a reduction will provide this balance, I don’t know. But let’s say we reduce the benefits to the bare minimum: People who come here for asylum will be placed in a refugee camp indefinitely, they will receive only the supplies they need to survive, and they can leave only to return to their home country or to resettle in a third country.  [What third country would take them?  Every relatively affluent country is trying to reduce its own invaders! They aren't going to take ours!---ed]

Read it all, it is worth it especially as he discusses the definition of refugee and how it is being misunderstood (is that on purpose?).

The problem with Mr. Dzubow’s plan (besides the obvious) is that he is making a fatal error in judgement.  He is trying to think of logical ways to solve the crisis while these people—the Obamas, the Soroses, the Munozes of  the no-borders pushers— are NOT trying to solve the crisis!  They want the borders gone altogether!

Compounding the problems with his logic is the FACT that our elected officials in DC, those who might like to find a solution, are apparently impotent against those forces working day and night to “change” America.

From Catalonia to Calais the Muslim invasion of Europe continues

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2014

Update August 14thHere comes the Ebola scare.

We have been so busy writing about the invasion of America that we have let news pile up about the mostly Muslim migrant invasion of Europe which is not being covered by the American dinosaur media.  Europe represents the ‘canary in a coal mine’ for western civilization.

While ISIS fights militarily for the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, their Muslim brothers wage the demographic war in Europe.

Catalonia is a region of Spain seeking to break away from Spain.  From Breaking Israel News:

RRW geography lesson! Muslims want to reestablish their former enclave in Europe as Caliphate-building continues.

 

Muslim leaders in the Spanish autonomous region of Catalonia say they have been promised a mega-mosque in Barcelona if they support independence from Spain in a referendum set for November 9.

Officials from the Catalonia’s ruling Convergence and Union Party (CiU) are seeking the ballots of all of the roughly 100,000 Muslims in the region who are eligible to vote. “If you support us in the referendum, there will be a mosque,” CiU officials are said to have promised Muslim leaders, according to Spanish media.

The mega-mosque in question is said to involve a 2.2 billion euro ($3 billion) project to convert a historic bullfighting stadium in Barcelona into the third-largest mosque in the world, after those in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

The tentative plan calls for the Emir of Qatar to purchase the stadium, known as the La Monumental, and to cover all costs associated with converting the property into a mosque. The five-year project would be completed sometime around 2020.

The mosque would have an interior capacity for 40,000 worshippers and an exterior capacity for another 80,000. The mosque complex would include a Koranic study center, a library, a conference room and a museum of Islamic art and history.

The mosque would also include a research center on the history of Al Andalus, the Arabic name given to those parts of Spain, Portugal and France that were occupied by Muslim conquerors (also known as the Moors) from 711 to 1492.

Moreover, the mosque would be accompanied by a towering 300-meter (985-foot) minaret which, if approved, would dominate the Barcelona skyline. The proposed minaret would completely overshadow the spectacularly emblematic Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic cathedral that is situated less than one kilometer from the bullfighting arena. The spires of the church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are only 170 meters (560 feet) tall.

Catalonia is home to an estimated 465,000 Muslims, who account for more than 6% of the total Catalan population of 7.5 million. This gives Catalonia the largest Muslim population in Spain.

By way of comparison, if Catalonia were to achieve independence, it would emerge as the country with the third-largest Muslim population in Western Europe, in percentage terms, just behind France and Belgium, and far ahead of Britain and Germany.

Calais, France has been “taken hostage“:  Clashes continue between migrants trying to reach the UK (Shangri-La for migrants) and French police (hat tip: Cathy).  This AP story is from last week, but the riots are on-going:

PARIS (AP) — Migrants flowing into Europe in unprecedented numbers are causing a tense summer in France, as clashes break out among asylum-seekers in overcrowded camps and police fire tear gas to quell the chaos.

Sudanese and Eritreans battled in the heat in France’s port city of Calais, frustrations rising as the Africans jockey for space while trying to sneak into Britain – the dream destination some 30 kilometers (20 miles) away.

Most migrants in Calais start the European portion of their treacherous Mediterranean journeys in Italy, arriving on boats in the island of Lampedusa. Last year, total arrivals in Italy tallied 42,000 – which was already surpassed by spring. With the year far from over, over 60,000 migrants have arrived on Italian shores.

EU immigration law says that illegal aliens (would-be asylum seekers) are to be processed in the first country in which they arrive, but obviously many are heading north and there seems to be nothing EU authorities can do.  Read the whole story.

Italian Navy rescues another nearly 1,000 migrants this past week alone.  From Gazzetta del Sud:

Pozzallo, August 6 – As many as 958 illegal migrants arrived in the Sicilian port of Pozzallo Wednesday aboard a coast guard vessel as thousands of people trying to reach Europe from Africa were plucked from small craft in the Mediterranean by Italian Navy and merchant ships, port officials said. The arrival of the 958, including many women and children, aboard the ship Dattilo was the largest number of migrants to land at the small port in the province of Ragusa since Italy launched Operation Mare Nostrum aimed at preventing loss of life in Italian waters.

They represented a constellation of nationalities from Africa, the Middle East and Asia including Egyptians, Pakistani, Eritreans, Syrians and Somalis.

 In Berlin, Germany a “crush” of refugees from News Round:

In July Berlin accepted 1047 new refugees. That is the highest monthly entrance for 15 years, explained health and Minister for Social Services Mario Czaja (CDU) on Wednesday. Besides in July approximately 900 further asylum seekers in the city arrived and for several days were cared for, before they further-traveled to other Federal states. In the first seven months approximately 5000 refugees came to Berlin, for the entire year count Czaja on an entrance of altogether 10,000 humans.

The refugee crush places the city before large challenges, said the senator. After the Königsteiner key, which regulates the distribution of asylum seekers on the Federal states, must take up Berlin five percent of all refugees, who place a request for asylum in Germany. The Federal Office for migration expects 200.000 applicants in this year.

And the beat goes on…..with no end in sight because no one seems to have the will to fight it!

Chinese, pretending to be persecuted Christians, caught at the US border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2014

Cheat sheet!  Where was Jesus born? Name his apostles! When is Christmas?

It isn’t just the “children” from Central America streaming across the wide open US southern border as this ABC News team discovered.  Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers.’

From ABC-13 Eyewitness News (emphasis is mine):

But children are only part of the story.

And ABC-13 saw first hand why. As the Ted Oberg Investigates team was walking with Border Patrol agents along the trees and scrub brush about 500 feet from the Rio Grande, a group of nine men wandered out of a thicket.

The nine were from China.

With the help of ABC-13 colleague Miya Shay translating on the phone ABC-13 learned the men said that they are from various provinces in China. They first flew to France, they said — it was unclear if they were smuggled — and then to Mexico.

They were then taken across the Rio Grande in a boat to the shores of Texas near where ABC-13 was walking.

“China? They will pay somewhere from 30 to 40 thousand dollars to be smuggled,” Bidegain said. “They came through the same network in Mexico as everyone else.”

Unlike the children who swim across, these men were dry. They carried water in plastic soda bottles.

They also were prepared in another way.

ABC-13 found a document one of the men had dropped in the brush. It was a Christian checklist, with answers to questions such as, “Where was Jesus born, where did he grow up,” “Jesus had how many apostles.. what are their names,” and “When is Christmas.”

There are also hand-written scribbles on the bottom of the note. The name the founder of a local church. A reference to 1922, the year the church was founded. And the location of the church, Fuzhou, China.

Border Patrol agents said this makes it appear they were likely coached to tell agents that they wanted to seek asylum in the US because they were Christian with credible fear of persecution in their home province of China.

“A lot will claim to be Christian,” Bidegain said. “They are coached on the story.”

And it’s not just the Chinese.

There is more, read it all.

As we have previously reported, Chinese “asylum seekers” are the most fortunate of all would-be political refugees reaching our shores on their own—-the largest number of successful asylum seekers in the US are Chinese. See Homeland Security’s ‘Annual Flow Report’ (page 6) for stats, here.  As far as I can tell this 2012 report is the most recent one available.  Where is 2013???

The Muslim Issue

"Like all unbelievers and polytheists, Christians are filthy. They are najusa (feces, urine) — a filthy impure dirty substance.” [Yasir Qadhi, faculty member, Rhodes College, Memphis, TN.]
