As invasion of Europe continues, Swiss village raises taxes to support one large African family

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 17, 2014

I’m feeling pretty done with Europe, there seems to be no fight left in any of them (if there ever was any fight in the Swiss).  See previous post this morning.

Residents of Swiss village outraged! So what are they going to do about it?

Check this out from the Daily Mail (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month.

Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago.

The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman’s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for general entertainment – such as guided tours of local attractions and entry fees for the zoo.

Read the rest of this outrageous story.

And, go here for our complete ‘invasion of Europe’ series.   Posts on Switzerland are here.

Will it all end in civil war?

Bulgarian village says NO to Muslim migrant kids in school

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2014

There are ‘pockets of resistance’ in some European countries which still have a will to live—one of those countries is Bulgaria which recently came under fire from the UN for building a border fence with Turkey so as to keep from being overrun.

Here is a bit of the latest news.  Although most of our readers are from the US, it is important for you to know the trajectory Europe is on.

From Novinite:

Residents of the western Bulgarian village of Kovachevtsi have issued a declaration demanding that the immigrants accommodated at the National Children Ecological Complex leave by October 30.

The declaration was adopted by the local Municipal Council, which held an extraordinary sitting on Monday after a protest over the decision to admit children of immigrants to the school in the village of Kalishte.

Ventsislav Todorov, Chair of the Kovachevtsi Municipal Council, informed that the declaration would be sent to the President, Prime Minister, the Education Minister, and the Chair of the State Agency for Refugees and the District Governor of Pernik.

“We oppose integration in a situation where Bulgarians are a minority, while Somali and Afghan nationals without refugee status are a majority,” he explained, as cited by the Bulgarian National Radio.

Death by demography: Which European country falls first to the Muslim tide?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2014

What do you think?

I’ve been betting on Sweden, but some of my compatriots say it will be the UK.  Other guesses?

The news from Sweden’s election yesterday would indicate that Sweden has just stepped-up the pace in the all important race over the cliff for western civilization.  Or has it?

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Swedish Left wing has pushed out the Center right with Leftists angry that their welfare state is eroding.  They worry that health care isn’t as good nor is education as it used to be, but this article laughably makes no DIRECT link to the enormous influx of Muslim third-worlders Sweden has “welcomed” and the decline in the ability of the social safety net to hold them all.

I suppose the big question for the Left is:  do they want the welfare reserved for Swedes or are they sharing their goodies with the world (until they run out)?

The media label Akesson “anti-immigrant.” Now they will have to pay attention to us says the leader of the Sweden Democrats.

Eventually the WSJ mentions the Syrians and the success of the “anti-immigration” party, Sweden Democrats, in the election.

The strong showing of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats—whose share of votes climbed to 13% from 5.7% in the 2010 election—surprised pollsters. Their opposition strength in parliament also could force Mr. Lofven to recruit a center-right party to his coalition to ensure he can drive through policies.

Fifteen paragraphs in we finally hear about the Syrians (on top of all the other Muslims from places like Iraq and Somalia already flooding into Sweden).  We told you about Sweden swinging wide the door to Syrians just when Obama visited last year at this time, here.

Last September, Sweden became the only European Union country to offer permanent residence to Syrians fleeing their devastated homeland and ahead of the election Mr. Reinfeldt asked Swedes to “open their hearts” to those seeking refuge.

He also acknowledged that immigration will strain the state budget in the short term, something the Sweden Democrats seized on for their campaign. They became the country’s third biggest party in Sunday’s voting.  [LOL! short term?  Where are they going to get the resources long term?---ed]

“Now it will be hard for the other parties to ignore us,” Party Leader Jimmie Akesson said.

For those of you watching Europe’s slide with bets on the UK going first, here are some stats from the Daily Mail yesterday (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’) that argue for your case.

The article is entitled: The changing face of Britain: A child in Birmingham is now more likely to be a Muslim than Christian.

Be sure to look at the adult to children ratio in each city.

 

 

Get it America!

Invasion of Europe news: Italian Muslim political leader fears for her safety after proposing mosque/cemetery

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 14, 2014

This is an interesting turnabout, it is usually European political leaders like Geert Wilders who have to live with the constant fear (under guard) that some Islamists will kill them.  Now, if this story is to be believed, Muslims fear a rising tide of “xenophobia” as Europeans feel under siege and fear the coming shariah law, as Muslim migrants flood into Italy from Africa and the Middle East.

 

 

From RIA Novosti:

MOSCOW, September 12 (RIA Novosti) – Aicha Mesrar, an Italian councilor from a small city in northern Italy, has been forced to abandon her post and flee the country, The Independent reported.

Announcing her resignation, Mesrar said that she was proud of her work in the city council, and stressed that her leaving “is not the fault of the people of Rovereto,” but of some isolated elements.

“I cannot always live under escort,” Mesrar said, adding that “I’m not scared for me but for my children.” Mesrar has been under police protection for over two years, after receiving numerous threats in the form of anonymous letters.

Mesrar, 45, was born in Casablanca, Morocco, and moved to Italy in the early 1990s, becoming a councilor of the Democratic Party in the city of Rovereto in the Trentino region in 2010.

Mesrar was described by other local politicians as an active and effective councilor, spearheading several community initiatives, including a local community cooperative. Mesrar was the first woman to wear a veil at city hall.

Rovereto’s mayor, Andrea Miorandi, a friend and political ally of Ms. Mesrar, has also received threats for supporting plans to build a mosque and a Muslim cemetery in the city. He described Mesrar’s work as an “outstanding example of civic commitment.”

Bruno Dorigatti, head of Trentino’s provincial government, noted with sadness that “if [Mesrar] has to give in to intimidation and anonymous threats, it means that Trentino has yet to defeat the dangerous disease of intolerance.

[....]

The problem of anti-immigrant attitudes and the related rise of nationalist and xenophobic feelings has been a significant problem in Europe for several decades, but has sharpened dramatically in recent years as the result of sharpening economic crises, rising unemployment, and instability in Northern Africa resulting in an influx of African and Asian immigrants.

Lebanese retaliate against Syrian refugees as Syrian Sunnis behead another Lebanese soldier

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2014

This story is all over the news in the last few days so I thought I better post on it.   Lebanon has shouldered a large percentage of the burden of caring for Syrians (mostly Sunni Muslims) fleeing violence in Syria, but now as Syrian rebels (ISIS) captures Lebanese soldiers and police (reportedly beheading two), the Lebanese people are retaliating.

Of course nothing here should be considered to be a reason that the West is thus required to take in the various Muslim religious sects bringing centuries-old sectarian squabbles to your neighborhood.

This is an outdated map, but it gives you an idea. Take note that Saudi Arabia takes no refugees.

From Yahoo News:

Baalbek (Lebanon) (AFP) – The kidnap and murder of Lebanese security forces by jihadists from Syria has sparked new tensions in Lebanon, including a backlash against Syrian refugees and a string of sectarian kidnappings.

Relatives of the missing soliders and policemen, who were kidnapped during fierce clashes in the Lebanese border town of Arsal last month, have blocked roads in protest and even carried out counter-kidnaps.

[....]

The hostage crisis and beheadings have inflamed tensions in Lebanon, which is hosting more than 1.1 million Syrian refugees, and where tensions were already soaring over the four-year conflict in Syria.

The crisis has prompted a backlash against Syrian refugees in parts of Lebanon, with tents in informal camps being set alight and hundreds of Syrians sheltered in the Bekaa valley fleeing for fear of attack.

The Syrian conflict has exacerbated existing sectarian tensions in Lebanon, where most Sunni residents back the Syrian uprising and Shiites generally support Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad.

Read it all.

Endnote:  Our post of late last week about the UN picking Syrian refugees for resettlement in America has gone ballistic on the internet.

The US will take thousands of Syrians this coming year unless citizens rise up in mass against the State Department’s soon-to-be-announced plan, but resettling even 15,000 now will make no dent in solving Syria’s or Lebanon’s problems!

See also Judy’s post yesterday—utter disaster.

Update:  British charity Oxfam says rich countries must take 5% of the 3 million Syrian refugees this year.  That comes to 179,500.  But, what strikes me as so interesting is that in articles like this one they never mention the US as among those nations.  Why is that?

Riots in Sweden (again) blamed on unemployment in immigrant enclaves

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

Update September 9th:  Don’t miss this Somali protest in Sweden where they are demanding their “rights.”

LOL!  “Some sort of social unrest…a statement against society,” says a police officer in Stockholm. (Hint: it is called Islamic terrorism!)

Our ‘canary in a coal mine,’ Sweden, is once again experiencing assorted riots where youths burn cars to make a political statement.  “Youths” in the politically-correct land of “welcome” usually means Muslim immigrants. See our extensive archive on Sweden which has literally opened its doors to the Middle East and Africa.  And, see our ‘invasion of Europe’ series by clicking here.

We show our gratitude by wrecking your country! Photo (2013 riots) and story about the cost of mass immigration: http://gatesofvienna.net/2014/05/sweden-and-the-cost-of-mass-immigration/

From Reuters (emphasis mine):

(Reuters) – At least 20 cars were set on fire overnight in a poor immigrant suburb of Stockholm, police said on Saturday, days before an election in which joblessness and Sweden’s open door asylum policy are major issues.

Sweden suffered its worst riots in years in May 2013, when youths burnt hundreds of cars and battled police in the capital’s poor suburbs for a week.

Gert Rosvall, a Stockholm police station officer, said vehicles had been torched in seven or eight places in Norsborg. Witnesses reported seeing a group of 20 to 50 people in the area at the time of the fires but no one had been arrested.

“This is about some sort of social unrest,” Rosvall said. “It is some kind of statement against society, but exactly what that statement is, we don’t know.”

In August, cars were also torched in the suburb of Rinkeby, which has Stockholm’s highest unemployment level.

Maybe it has something to do with the upcoming elections?

“Whether there is any connection to that, or the fact that elections are coming up, we don’t know,” Rosvall said.

Opinion polls suggest anti-immigration Sweden Democrats will take about 10 percent of votes in the Sept. 14 election, which would be their best ever result, as a growing number of voters question the cost of the country’s open door asylum policy.

Centre right Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, whose government alliance is facing defeat, put immigration at the top at the political agenda in an August speech.

While pointing to the importance of helping people fleeing from conflicts such as the one in Syria, he said the cost of receiving asylum seekers would leave little room for more spending to boost jobs and schools.

No kidding!

By the way, my bet is on Sweden to reach a “tipping point” first in Europe—tipping over to a Muslim-dominated society.  Some are betting on France or the UK, but I think the French and the Brits may have a stronger will to live.  What do you think?

MN: Federal grand jury investigation seeking information on recruitment of Somali youths for Islamic terrorism

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

Are Minnesota mosques responsible?

One more story out of ‘Little Mogadishu’ Minnesota on the Somali refugees turned Jihadists.

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune (hat tip: Deb):

Be sure to see Pamela Geller on the story, here (“mosquing the neighborhood”), where she puts this all in a larger perspective.

Al-Farooq Youth and Family Center is under the microscope. Photo: http://bloomingtonmn.gov/main_top/3_homecomm/afyfc/afyfc.htm

A federal grand jury in St. Paul is investigating a group of Somali-Americans who were allegedly conspiring to join terrorists fighting in Syria, according to sources with direct knowledge of the probe.

The proceedings, which have been going on all summer, appear to be centered on trying to find out who is behind efforts to convince 20 to 30 people that they should leave Minnesota to fight in the Middle East. That question has stymied federal agents for the last year as they have struggled to build inroads and trust with the Muslim community in the Twin Cities in order to cut off a new pipeline of recruits.

Seven years ago, about two dozen young Somali men from Minnesota were recruited to fight in Somalia with another terrorist group, Al-Shabab. As many as nine were reported killed, and after a series of indictments and high-profile convictions, federal authorities and community leaders believed that the recruiting had stopped.

Instead, it has shifted to a new region.

[....]

The group under investigation is mostly composed of young Somalis who have been frequenting the Al Farooq Youth and Family Center and mosque in Bloomington. There, they may have fallen under the influence of Amir Meshal, a 31-year-old American of Egyptian descent who allegedly spoke often to them about joining in a jihad, those sources said.

Meshal, whose alleged actions at the mosque were reported in June to the FBI, was already well-known to counterterrorism agents. In 2007, agents arrested him in Kenya after he fled Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital. He was accused of having received weapons training in an Al-Qaida camp and of serving as a translator for the terrorist group’s leaders in Somalia, according to court documents.

See our post yesterday on the Minnesota Somali nexus to terrorism in the Middle East and in Africa and follow links to other posts.

Addendum:  Don’t forget! We brought almost 1,000 new Somalis to America just last month, here, bringing the number for the year so far to 8,278 (a number approaching the three years during the Bush Presidency when we resettled over 10,000 each year).

WND: MN Rep. Michele Bachmann talks about home grown Somali Jihadists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2014

Once again, reporter Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily does a very thorough report on the refugee program and the Minnesota Somali Jihadists we are raising.  See our comments on two earlier articles by Hohmann here and here.

Rep. Michele Bachmann: It is willful blindness.

World Net Daily (hat tip: Deb).  Emphasis below is mine:

Political correctness and a “willful blindness” are preventing the FBI from rooting out Islamic jihadists that continue to make headlines in her home state of Minnesota, says Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann.

In an exclusive interview with WND, Bachmann responded to news this week that two Somali-Americans from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area had left to fight with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS. One had obtained a security clearance at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where he held a job cleaning jets for Delta Airlines. Both men died on the battlefield in Syria.

Please read the discussion about the FBI, and here are some segments about the refugee program that brought most of the Somalis to America:

The Minneapolis area has become home to more than 50,000 Somalis since the early 1990s. They have been brought there by the U.S. State Department through the Refugee Resettlement Program authorized by the Refugee Act of 1980. In a report earlier this week, WND detailed how several Christian charities work as contractors for the federal government to resettle the refugees using taxpayer-funded grants.

[.....]

Two of those who recently died fighting for ISIS in Syria have come from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, where thousands of Islamic refugees have been resettled from the war-torn African nation of Somalia since the early 1990s. Portions of Minneapolis have been dubbed “Little Mogadishu” for their high concentrations of Somali refugees. Several thousand new refugees are brought in each year by the federal government, which delivers resettlement services through grants made to Christian charitable organizations like Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities and World Relief Minnesota.

The Somali families tend to be large, and the roughly 25,000 transplants have mushroomed into more than 50,000 Somalis living in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Some estimate the population of east Africans there could be as high as 85,000.

With that burgeoning Muslim population have come mosques and Islamic schools, funded largely with Saudi Arabian money and recruiters for radical Sunni Muslim terror groups like ISIS in Syria and al-Shabab in Somalia.

The FBI has been investigating, on and off, the Minneapolis community’s ties to Middle Eastern terrorist groups since 2007. That investigation is now officially back on, a FBI spokesman told WND, and the agency has confirmed that up to 25 Somali-Americans from Minnesota have left the country to fight with militant Islamic jihadists overseas.

Read it all, there is much more!

Dead Somali ISIS fighter worked for Delta at Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 3, 2014

That is what Breitbart is reporting (posted at Drudge).   This news does not surprise us because we know that Somali refugees, in addition to the taxi business, are employed at airports nationwide.  A few years ago a reader from Washington State expressed concern to us about the number of Somalis employed at Seattle’s Sea-Tak Airport.

So if the avowed Jihadist Muhumed worked for Delta, why the whining from apologists about “vulnerable kids”?

Abdirahmaan Muhumed, one of the refugees we welcomed to America recently died as an ISIS fighter. Photo: http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/26399854/challenges-lack-of-opportunity-drove-suspected-isis-fighter

From Breitbart:

According to a report from Minnesota Twin Cities FOX affiliate KMSP that aired Tuesday night, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, previously worked for Delta Global Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines.

KMSP noted that according to sources, Muhumed’s position with Delta Global Services required a security clearance at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in order gain access to the tarmac and unfettered access to planes.

Muhumed’s employment with Delta Global Services was confirmed by two former employees that acknowledged working with Muhumed.

Muhumed died in the same battle as Douglas McCain, an ISIS fighter also from Minnesota.

See our first report on Muhumed here.  See also this morning’s post on Minneapolis (aka Little Mogadishu).

What is it about the Islamic imperative to wage Jihad that most Westerners don’t get?

WND reports on Somali Jihad recruitment in “Little Mogadishu” Minnesota

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 3, 2014

As I mentioned the other day, we probably have at least 500 posts here at RRW on the Somali migration to America, and surely a hundred or more on the ‘Somali youths’ we welcomed to our cities who have said, s**** the good life, we are Jihadists. (See ISIS fighters just yesterday, here.)

Important to remember!  Almost all Somalis (or their parents) now in the US got here through our LEGAL immigration programs, largely through the US State Department’s Refugee Resettlement initiative (State Dept takes refugees that the UN tells them to take).  Smaller numbers are here because they came illegally or over-stayed visas and were granted asylum and others got in and then were afforded the benefits of another legal program—Temporary Protected Status.  It is impossible to know how many are here illegally, but we do know Somalis have been apprehended at our southern border (how many others got through?).

World Net Daily reporter Leo Hohmann does a good job of summarizing how we got to this place:

Amina Farah who was eventually convicted and sent to prison refused to stand for the Judge as her terror support trial opened in Minneapolis in 2011. http://www.mprnews.org/story/2011/10/03/al-shabab-trial

Even as President Obama launched air strikes Tuesday against the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia, a pipeline for potential new Somali terrorists continues to fester right here in the United States.

It’s called the Refugee Resettlement Program, and it continues unabated under the leadership of the U.S. State Department and with the help of several Christian charities.

Minneapolis, Minnesota, sits at the heart of the controversial program. Known as “Little Mogadishu” to some critics, the city has since 1983 welcomed thousands of Somali refugees, most of whom are practicing Muslims and attend a local mosque or Islamic center.

While the Minneapolis-St. Paul area plays host to the largest Somali refugee population, it’s not the only American city that is taking in refugees from the war-torn African nation. Columbus, Ohio, and San Diego, California, have also served as refugee resettlement hot spots.

The State Department, working with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, chooses the communities largely because they are viewed as welcoming of foreign refugees and also because they have well-developed social welfare programs.

“Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and World Relief, which is an evangelical group, resettled them there because the welfare is so good in Minnesota. That was the main reason,” says Ann Corcoran, an activist who has written hundreds of articles about the Somali resettlement program for Refugee Resettlement Watch. “That’s also the case with Maine. A lot of the Somalis are going there for the same reason.”

The Christian charities have worked quietly behind the scenes, using millions of dollars in federal grants, to resettle the refugees in the chosen cities.

There is much more, continue reading here.

* About the photo:  Amina Farah (Ali) also told the court that we ‘infidels’ were going to hell, here.
