Rome: Protesters take to the streets claiming refugees are bringing crime to their neighborhood

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

Sorry to focus so heavily today on ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, but that seems to be where the action is.

Matteo Salvini a political “rising star” in Italy. http://news.yahoo.com/salvini-seeks-fill-berlusconi-boots-italys-063140476.html

From the Independent:  (Be sure to see the photo which I can’t import—these women don’t look so nasty to me!  Their sign says: ‘enough uncivilised immigration’)

Racial tensions have exploded in Rome’s suburbs after locals chanting pro-Mussolini slogans attacked an immigrant holding centre. Police responded with baton charges and tear gas.

Locals are calling for the building in the Tor Sapienza district to be closed after blaming the migrants it houses for “insupportable” levels of street crime in the area.

But the nastier side of the protests were apparent on Tuesday night with hundreds of people chanting: “The blacks have to go,” and dozens more shouting: “Long live Il Duce (Mussolini)”.

The violence in Tor Sapienza began simmering on Monday night with hooded men throwing stones at the Sorriso reception centre in Viale Giorgio Morandi. On Tuesday night the situation escalated dramatically. At around 10pm around 50 people, at the head of a 250-strong crowd, attacked the centre with rocks and petrol bombs. At least 14 people, including four policemen, were injured in the clashes that saw cars and rubbish bins set alight and used as barricades. Some residents claimed the police over-reacted. “They charged us suddenly, for no reason, while were standing still on the pavement. We wanted protection from the forces of law and order, but instead they attacked us,” one local, Eliana, told Ansa news agency.

The 36 African and Bengali refugees inside pleaded with police to be led away to safety, according to Corriere Della Sera newspaper. A few hours earlier one of the refugees was attacked in the street.

The ugly developments are the latest sign of a wave of anti-immigration sentiment sweeping Italy, with populist political leaders appearing to profit from, even encourage it. Matteo Salvini, head of the xenophobic Northern League, has seen his ratings rise after appearing in a T-shirt bearing the phrase: “Stop Invasion”.

But, now hold on, go to the last paragraph and we learn that the refugees aren’t pure as the driven snow…..

The violence at Tor Sapienza is the latest in a series of racially-motivated confrontations in the capital in the past few months. In September there were several clashes between refugees and locals in the Corcolle district. Around 40 migrants attacked two buses with stones and threatened a female driver, after claiming they were not allowed on public transport. Locals responded by launching vigilante patrols.

I wonder what level the migrant population must reach before violence comes to the streets.

LOL! Remember that story we had from Italy in August—Refugees protest against boring Italian food!  It is tough being a refugee in Italy these days.

Go here for our archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  And, especially see this post on the rise of the European right.  Can Europe still save itself?

Bloomberg writer posits that more ingredients in a recipe makes for a better stew and so does more immigration to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 11, 2014

Huh?

This is just a ridiculous analogy and would not be worth even a mention if it weren’t for the huge number of commenters (with entertaining things to say) blasting the author’s conclusions and demonstrating the good sense of Americans generally.

Here is Noah Smith’s opening paragraph of Best Immigration Policy Is More Immigration (hat tip: Paul):

In my family, we have a cooking technique that is especially useful for making stews and other mixed-ingredient dishes. If there is ever doubt as to whether or not to add more of an ingredient — onions, olive oil, Cholula sauce — we err on the side of adding more. This approach has long been my default attitude toward immigration — more is better.

There is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo about assimilation and whether well-educated immigrants assimilate better than the uneducated.  The author does say that maybe we shouldn’t have so many uneducated ones.  And concludes with this:

So it would seem to be a good idea for us to tilt our immigration policy toward more skills-based immigration. When it comes to the “More!” cooking technique, high-skilled immigrants are the ingredient that goes well with any dish.

Brilliant, isn’t it!

Bloomberg commenters were having none of it.  As of this writing, there are 500 of them.  Some are hilarious!

Here is the latest one (an hour ago as I post this):

Jim:  It’s unbelievable how many idiots there are in the world, and how many of those idiots are in the media profession.

Somalis cook too!

And, LOL!, here is one involving another cooking technique!  Somali refugees in America like cooking too—roast lamb in this case!

Susan Betts (responding to Dave Kelly):

Having been someone that worked with the influx of Somali folks that came in this country in the 90′s these idealistic people have no idea in so far as practical application what they are talking about. Most are very very unskilled, don’t speak English well enough, don’t understand the basics requirements of what a land lord will require of them and don’t care. I had one land lord end his participation in the county program for housing because these people built fires to roast lambs in the middle of the living room and would not stop. It damaged his property so badly that he ended up suing the county. They ignore occupancy laws and many many other things that would take forever to itemize. I think you get my drift. There assimilation was all federal, state and county funded once those dollars were gone it has been a real mess. I am speaking for Ohio and Minnesota.

In advance of Obama’s visit to Burma, the NYT does the Rohingya as victims story

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2014

Burma, one of the only countries in the world with the guts to stand up to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Monks protest in 2013: http://www.demotix.com/news/3243077/buddhist-monks-protest-against-oic/all-media

 

I would have to write a book to tell you why this story is so infuriating to me.  I don’t have time for books!  But, I have followed the Burma (Myanmar) Rohingya Muslim issue for years (174 previous posts in our Rohingya category) and it makes me want to explode when I see the one-sided portrayal of the issue by the mainstream (leftwing, pro-Islamist media).

By the way, my initial interest in the Rohingya story was that our refugee resettlement contractors are pushing for the US to take more Rohingya refugees (USCCB here), and in fact have already resettled some in America.  Esar Met, convicted of killing a Burmese Christian girl earlier this year in Utah, was almost certainly a Rohingya.

Oh, how times have changed.  Here is Time magazine on the Rohingya in 2002 (see our 2009 post here to see how Time got with the Rohingya as ‘victims’ meme by 2009).  In 2002:

Today, southern Bangladesh has become a haven for hundreds of jihadis on the lam. They find natural allies in Muslim guerrillas from India hiding out across the border, and in Muslim Rohingyas.

Interestingly, the US State Department removed its link where Rohingya had been previously linked to Islamic terror groups.

I don’t see one single word in the New York Times article from last Thursday about what started the latest round of violence between the Buddhist majority and the Muslim Rohingya minority—the rape and murder in 2012 of a Burmese girl by a gang of Muslim men. Not a word about outside Islamic agitators (Muslim “pilgrams”) working among the Rohingya population, and definitely not one word about the Organization of Islamic Cooperation attempting to get an Islamic/sharia foothold in Burma.

Remember everywhere is fair game for the creation of a Sharia state.

Here is the New York Times carrying water for the lecturing Obama again and the Islamist agenda:

SITTWE, Myanmar — The Myanmar government has given the estimated one million Rohingya people in this coastal region of the country a dispiriting choice: Prove your family has lived here for more than 60 years and qualify for second-class citizenship, or be placed in camps and face deportation.

The policy, accompanied by a wave of decrees and legislation, has made life for the Rohingya, a long-persecuted Muslim minority, ever more desperate, spurring the biggest flow of Rohingya refugees since a major exodus two years ago.

In the last three weeks alone, 14,500 Rohingya have sailed from the beaches of Rakhine State to Thailand, with the ultimate goal of reaching Malaysia, according to the Arakan Project, a group that monitors Rohingya refugees.

The crisis has become an embarrassment to the White House ahead of a scheduled visit by President Obama to Myanmar next week. [Obama off to Asia here—ed] The administration considers Myanmar a foreign-policy success story in Asia but is worried that renewed conflict between Buddhist extremists, who are given a free hand by the government, and the Rohingya could derail the already rocky transition from military rule to democratic reform.

Mr. Obama called President Thein Sein of Myanmar last week, urging him to address the “tensions and humanitarian situation in Rakhine State,” the White House said.

In his most public appeal to the government yet, Mr. Obama asked the Myanmar leader to revise the anti-Rohingya policies, specifically the resettlement plan. Myanmar must “support the civil and political rights of the Rohingya population,” he said.

The Rohingya have faced discrimination for decades. They have been denied citizenship and evicted from their homes, their land has been confiscated, and they have been attacked by the military. After one such attack in 1978, some 200,000 fled to Bangladesh.

Many paragraphs of blah, blah, blah and this:

The latest flare-up began with an outbreak of sectarian rioting in 2012, in which hundreds of Rohingya were killed and dozens of their villages burned to the ground by radical Buddhists. Since then, close to 100,000 have fled the country, and more than 100,000 have been confined to squalid camps, forbidden to leave.

No discussion of how the latest flare-up started!  Or, how the Rohingya set Buddhist villages on fire and killed innocents.  Typical biased and disgusting coverage!

See our Rohingya Reports category.  And, you could write a book!

Lewiston, Maine mayor: More public housing would attract more welfare recipients

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2014

Mayor McDonald is continually under fire from Leftists and Somali agitators. Here is one such case in 2012: http://www.pressherald.com/2012/10/02/lewiston-mayor-asked-to-resign-after-comments/

Although the “S” word is not mentioned, it does seem that the mayor ( Mayor Robert Macdonald) had Somalis on his mind when he talked with WMTW.TV (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Voters in Lewiston have repealed an agreement that would have given some pieces of city land to a landlord whose properties were destroyed in a 2013 arson. Affordable housing would have been built at the site. Mayor Robert Macdonald said the city has enough housing and more than 40 vacant buildings have been torn down so far.

[....]

He is concerned about building more housing that can attract people from other areas and take advantage of public services. When we bring these people in here, they perpetuate the—the myth that Lewiston is nothing but a welfare place.

By the way, I assume the arson fire discussed is this one which did involve a Somali boy.  More here.

How did all those Somalis (thousands of them) end up in Lewiston?  See our post from 2009 on Maine and the welfare magnet, here.

You also might want to have a look at our extensive archive on Lewiston by clicking here.

And, one more thing, Maine’s Governor Paul LePage, who has been trying for years to get rid of Maine’s reputation for welfare generosity to migrants and asylum seekers, was re-elected last week (the Left is not happy).  See our Maine archive here.

Sec. of Homeland Security visits Somali “community” in Minneapolis, hears complaints

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 8, 2014

Says he wants help in identifying immigrants with bad intentions.  (Well, he didn’t exactly say that.)

In response, Somalis welcome federal help in keeping their youths from wanting to join the jihad, say they need more taxpayer funded stuff to keep them here.  (Well, not exactly in those words.)

Jeh Johnson with Somalis in Minneapolis. Somalis don’t want any airport profiling as they travel in and out of the US. http://www.kare11.com/story/news/local/2014/11/07/homeland-security-chief-johnson-somalis-luger-bihi-dube/18670865/

It seems pretty simple to me, don’t profile at airports as they leave the country, just let them leave and then strip them of their passports!

From Fox9 Minneapolis (emphasis is mine):

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) –

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson was in the heart of Minnesota’s Somali community Friday to listen and let local leaders know they aren’t alone. He encouraged grassroots efforts to build safe, strong and proud neighborhoods, telling the Muslim community this is your America too.

“I want to encourage people to be participants in our public safety, in our homeland security.” Johnson said. “This is your country too.”

Johnson talked about several hot button issues, insisting he is focused on community engagement.

“Muslims are always being targeted because they happen to be Muslims,” Abdirahman Mukhtar, with Pillsbury United Communities said.

The secretary’s agenda includes racial profiling and the extremist recruitment of young Muslims to fight in wars overseas.

“This is an exercise in trust,” Johnson said.

The secretary explained that efforts to block the pipeline that is sending potential fighters from the Twin Cities to far off places like Somalia and Syria starts on the ground in neighborhoods like Minneapolis’ cedar-riverside.

The message from the White House is the federal government needs help.

“If you see somebody who may be headed in the direction of violence, someone disaffected, angry in some way, help us to help you in the community,” Johnson said. “I don’t consider that snitching.”

“We are very happy that we are getting the right attention,” Abdirizak Bihi, a Somali community leader said.

Somali community leaders welcomed the cabinet level visit that included meetings and roundtable discussions with law enforcement and other stakeholders.  ['Stakeholders' never include those critical of the government---ed]

The hope is that Washington gets the message that there are problems on the ground here that need addressing to keep young immigrants from becoming disillusioned and influenced by terrorist organizations.

They need more job training, education, and nice places to live (and for you to pay for it!).

“There’s no employment opportunities, no job training, college readiness, the achievement gap,” Amano Dube with Pillsbury United Communities said. “They don’t have an appropriate place to live.”

And, LOL! don’t you dare profile them at airports as they try to get to Somalia or to the Middle East to join ISIS!  It continues to be a great mystery to me why so many “persecuted” Somalis are always flying back and forth to Somalia and East Africa.  How persecuted could they be?

BTW, more Somalis are arriving in Minneapolis every day thanks to the US State Department and its contractors.

CAIR publishes list of American “Islamophobes”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 8, 2014

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is listed on their website in the right hand column, but absent from the list in larger print. http://www.islamophobia.org/islamophobic-individuals.html

Apparently the list prepared by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was updated just before the elections this week.  It includes some big names, but some regular grassroots activists are honored as well.

I know a lot of people who wish they had made it.  (See our post yesterday of ‘friends of CAIR’ who lost elections).  Maybe there should be a bumper sticker—Proud Islamophobe on board!

Cedar Rapids, Iowa: Rwandan refugee charged with naturalization fraud

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

The next time you hear one of the advocates for refugee resettlement claim that the screening is very thorough, remember this case!

I think one of our problems (well, the do-gooders’ problems) is that we (they) can’t wrap their minds around the incredible lies refugee wannabes are willing to tell.    See all of our posts on lying (and other criminal) Rwandan refugees by clicking here.

From The Gazette (Hat tip: Joanne).  Emphasis is mine:

Can you believe it? Ken Ngombwa allegedly lied to get into the US as a refugee.

CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man who is originally from Rwanda was charged Tuesday in federal court with naturalization fraud.

Ken Ngombwa, 54, is charged with one count of unlawfully procuring or attempting to procure naturalization or citizenship; one count of procuring citizenship to which he was not entitled; one count of conspiracy to unlawfully procure citizenship; and one count of making a materially false statement to agents of the United States, according to an indictment.

The indictment said Ngombwa attempted to obtain citizenship for himself and family members who accompanied him to the United States from Rwanda from March 1998 through Nov. 19, 2004.

Ngombwa and others allegedly made a number of false statements to U.S. immigration authorities, who decided to grant Ngombwa refugee status and permanent resident alien status, which permitted him to become a citizen.

According to the indictment, Ngombwa claimed he was the brother of Faustin Twagiramungu, a former prime minister of Rwanda.

Ngombwa appeared in court Tuesday and was released on bond. He was ordered to surrender any passport or travel documents, stay in Linn County, have no contact with potential witnesses and undergo a mental health evaluation.

If convicted, Ngombwa faces up to 30 years in federal prison and a $1 million fine. He also faces loss of citizenship. [So we get to pay for him in prison for 30 years?—ed]

Ngombwa also faces second-degree arson and insurance fraud charges in Linn County District Court. He is accused of setting multiple fires in his home in July 2013 and giving his insurance provider false information about the fire.

So will he and his extended family be deported?

Be sure to visit The Gazette for the arson story involving Ngombwa from earlier this year.

I think the US State Department should be responsible for paying for all of the legal costs associated with THEIR mistake.

Check out this story about how much the lying Rwandan cost us in New Hampshire a few years back.

I know it is still our tax dollars no matter what federal or state jurisdiction foots the bill, but I would still like to see these criminal cases paid for out of the US State Department’s budget.  Maybe they could even reimburse Iowa, Linn County and the city of Cedar Rapids for anything this liar cost the local and state government, even all the welfare they probably are still receiving.

Russia fed up with too many illegal migrants; rights group says xenophobia is rampant

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

It is rare to see news from Russia about its illegal migrant problem, but here is a story from Monday that appeared in my alerts.  Eroding social cohesion there too?

From IPS News (emphasis is mine):

MOSCOW, Nov 3 2014 (IPS) - Immigrants in Russia could face a wave of violence following thousands of arrests in a crackdown on illegal immigration which has been condemned not only for human rights breaches but for entrenching a virulent negative public perception of migrants.

Russia “intimidating migrants” says human rights activist Tolekan Ismailova who apparently wears many hats. http://www.rferl.org/content/uzbekistan-kyrgyz-activist-detained/25027138.html

More than 7,000 people were arrested across Moscow – and more than 800 already served with deportation orders – under Operation Migrant 2014 which ran between Oct. 23 and Nov. 2 in the Russian capital.

The scale of the operation and methods used by the authorities has left international and local rights organisations outraged.

They say police used violence during raids on thousands of locations, including work places, markets, lodgings, hotels and people’s homes. They said that some migrants were forcibly taken from their families with no information given to relatives of where they were being taken.

Some were deported without proper procedures being observed, according to local lawyers while others claim many of an estimated up to 100,000 migrants detained had money confiscated by police before being released without their detention being recorded.

Tolekan Ismailova, vice-president of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), said: “This is simply an institutionalised way of intimidating migrants and their families. The operation violates Russia’s international obligations to respect human dignity and ban the practice of arbitrary detentions.”

But beyond the rights abuses, the highly-publicised raids are, critics argue, also helping foment and entrench a xenophobic attitude to migrants in wider society that increases the risk of violence against them.

Ismailova told IPS: “Operations like this only reinforce negative images of migrants in Russia and increase violence towards them. Once Russians see images of the raids in the news they will rally to support the government’s actions.”

The warnings come amid hardening attitudes towards what some Russian MPs estimate to be as many as 10 million migrants across Russia.

There is more, read it all here.  I wonder what proportion of the illegal migrants are Muslims?

Oxford professor says England must slow immigration; social cohesion eroding

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

Writing at The Guardian, Oxford professor Paul Collier says that England must slow the flow of immigrants into the tiny country.

It is worth reading the whole thing, but here (below) is one small snip to give you the flavor.

He says that British political activists (UKIP) who focus largely on the economic costs to Britain are missing the much larger impact that the size and diversity of the immigrant population will have on social cohesion going forward.

The important effects of immigration are social and long term, not economic and short term. The key long-term social effects are probably on the overall size of the population and its diversity. As to population size, Britain is already one of the most crowded countries in Europe, and there is a sound environmental argument for protecting quality of life by discouraging further substantial increases. As to diversity, it involves a trade-off: as it increases, variety is enhanced but cohesion reduced. Variety is good but, unfortunately, as cohesion erodes voters become less willing to support generous welfare programmes.

In my view, not only will voters not want to support welfare programs (isn’t that economic?), but there will be increasing tension, conflict and potentially violence as Brits look at immigrants as invaders.

Why do we write about refugees, asylum seekers, and illegal migration in Europe and other first-world countries?  So that you can see what is in store for America—the only difference between them and us is our size and the fact that in Europe the number of immigrants is so large in comparison to the native population that the impact is being felt sooner.  But, we are getting there!

Some US cities are already there—Minneapolis for instance!

Collier is the author of Exodus: Immigration and Multiculturalism in the 21st Century.’

We wrote about another of his books here in August.

Australia: Sunni (ISIS) believed responsible for attack on Shiite

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2014

Just a quick note from Down Under—-this is what happens when western countries “welcome” the opposing factions of Islam to live among us.  This conflict has been going on since the year 632 and isn’t going to end any time soon.

A reminder:  We (the US) will soon be bringing in mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians from UN-run camps in the Middle East (5,000 in the pipeline).  I don’t know, but will try to find out, if the majority of Iraqis we are bringing now (among the 20,000 or so in the last year alone) are Sunnis or Shiites (I am guessing mostly Sunni).

 

 

From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Fear of revenge attacks follow the shooting of a Shiite Muslim in a drive-by attack in Sydney’s south-west.

Rasoul Al-Musawi was closing up an Islamic prayer centre on Rosedale Avenue is Greenacre when the attack occurred, with friends claiming he was targeted targeted by people claiming to be supporters of Islamic State.

Mr Al-Musawi was shot in the face and shoulder while he was with his wife and four of his children at the Husainiyah Nabi Akram centre.

Mr Al-Musawi’s friend – who did not wish to be named – is a Shiite Muslim and said the shooting in Greenacre was motivated by the sectarian struggle in the Middle East.

‘They called us “Shia dogs” and they threatened to come back down tonight and kill you, shoot you, whatever,’ he told ABC Radio on Monday.

The man said they had taken no notice of the threats made on the night of the shooting – which also included ‘IS lives forever’ - but then he received a phone call saying his friend had been shot.

There is more, and more photos, here.

We have 148 previous posts about Australia, here.  They have their problems with refugees and phony asylum seekers, but at least there is a serious effort underway by the present government to stem the illegal flow to Australia.
