Minnesota Somali refugee believed to be second ‘American’ killed while fighting with ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 28, 2014

Between the illegal alien “children” (wannabe refugees) invading our southern border and some of the American ISIS fighters turning out to be “refugees” we welcomed to America, the general public sure is getting an education about our Refugee Resettlement and Asylum Program this summer!

This latest news comes as no surprise to us since we have been writing about the recruitment of Somali “youths” for the international Jihad since 2008.  See much of our earliest coverage at this post or type ‘Somali missing youths’ into our search window. [Want to write a book on this?  Most of your research is on the pages of RRW!]

We attended a hearing in Washington in March 2009 at which Senators Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins listened to US intelligence testimony which promoted the naive dream-world notion that the “youths” were only giving up the good life in America to go to Somalia to fight the Ethiopian invaders of their homeland.  The Senators were visibly relieved to be told it was only nationalism driving the recruitment—but the intelligence was wrong and they were WRONG!

Think about it!  Through our refugee program we are bringing young children to America (who otherwise might have died in their homeland) who we pay to raise—school, medical, housing all provided—believing they will melt in our mythical melting-pot and instead we grow healthy fighters to terrorize the world.   By the way, just about every Somali in America is here as a refugee or child of a refugee.  Some have entered illegally (or in years past, overstayed a visa) and been granted asylum, but the lion’s share came through the US State Department as refugees.

The contractors who brought the Somalis to Minnesota are Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services of MN, and World Relief of MN, here.

Before I get to the breaking news, you need to know that we are on target to receive one of the highest numbers of new Somali refugees since the three Bush years when numbers topped ten thousand (2004, 2005, and 2006).  See that post.

As of July 31st we have “welcomed” 7,326 new Somalis to America this fiscal year!

We saw this coming in a post in June.  From Fox News (hat tip: Deb):

[emphasis is mine]

A second American killed fighting with the Islamic State group in Syria has been identified as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis, two sources told Fox News late Wednesday.

KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McArthur McCain***, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope and most recently lived in San Diego. The State Department confirmed McCain’s death earlier this week, but spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the U.S. has no independent confirmation of the second American’s death. “We’re looking into it,” she said.

A source told Fox News that Muhumed’s family had been sent a photo of his body from Syria, but had not been formally notified by the State Department.

29-years old and the father of nine!  So, guess who will be paying to raise his kids?  You!

A profile of Muhumed by Minnesota Public Radio this past June described him as a 29-year-old Somali-American who had been married more than once and was a father of nine children. MPR reported, citing the FBI, that at least 15 young men from the Twin Citites’ Somali-American community had traveled to Syria to join Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS that has captured wide swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq.

In a Facebook messages to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote “I give up this worldly life for Allah” and “Allah loves those who fight for his cause.” A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.

Federal investigators believe that approximately 100 Americans have traveled to Syria to join Islamist groups. Most of them are disaffected young men targeted by recruitment videos like those one put out by the Somali-based, Al Qaeda-linked group al-Shabaab that praised Minnesota’s “martyrs.”

***McCain had links to this same Somali community.  And, the FBI thought they had this Minnesota recruitment under control years ago.  As reader Ed said yesterday when he sent us this link about McCain:

Somali immigration just keeps finding ways to enrich America. It turns Americans into Somalis.

The bacon flap in “welcoming” Winooski, VT

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 27, 2014

I don’t have the time to do this post justice this morning, but since the news about a restaurant in Vermont taking down a sign with the word “bacon” on it after a Muslim customer deemed it offensive is all over the web, and because some have linked a post we wrote here in 2009, I need to at least say a few words.

So what did they expect?  When Winooski “welcomed” the US State Department and its contractors in several years ago to resettle Muslim refugees in their town, this day would come.

Senator Patrick Leahy as he appeared when he first arrived in Washington in 1975 has been pushing for more immigration for America for nearly four decades. So, with a leader like this, Vermont deserves to “welcome” many more than it has already.

Here is a story at USA Today and one at American Thinker where you can learn more about the controversy.

Send all refugees to Vermont!  Find the “tipping point!”

That is what we have been promoting here at RRW—send all of the refugees to “welcoming” Vermont.  First, their leadership wants them (and the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ too).

Senator Patrick Leahy was a primary pusher for “amnesty” (Gang of Eight Senate bill) and he has been the Senate champion for the federal contractors looking for more refugees to be admitted to the US.  Additionally, Vermonters say they love diversity, so it is a perfect testing ground.

And, then most importantly (besides saving your state!), by sending all of the refugees to Vermont for a few years we would find out very quickly what the “tipping point” will be for America especially as it relates to the importation of Muslim refugees.

See all of our posts on Vermont, here.  But, please be sure to see these two recent posts, here and here.

New nickname for Vermont!  The Green Card State!

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.

 

Catholic Church protecting mostly Muslim asylum seekers in Vienna, Austria. (Herwig Prammer/Reuters)

 

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.

Australian website (Pickering Post) posts what the Australian Left-media doesn’t want you to see

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2014

A reader from Australia just sent me this website (which we will add to our blogroll) and recommended we read it from time to time.  We will.

I picked this recent post to give you a taste of what is happening Down Under with its ever-expanding Muslim immigrant (refugee!) population.  Our Australian reader is not optimistic about Australia’s long-term survival.  I had just been thinking this morning about a new category for RRW—So, what did they expect? (when admitting Muslim migrants to western democracies).

 

If you thought you might escape to Australia—forget it!

From The Pickering Post (entitled: How the hell did we let this happen?) by Rennie Carter:

Australia! Land of the free. Land of opportunity. Land of milk and honey. Ask any hardworking Greek or Italian immigrant and they will tell you it is true. It’s a place where the opportunity is given to live a good life. A peaceful life. Australia – the country that opened its arms to the downtrodden peoples of war ravaged Europe. Australia – the land that opened its arms to the Vietnamese. But then, we went too far with our open-arms policy.

Today we have opened the floodgates to a people who hate us before they have even gotten off the boat. In fact it is worse! It is ILLEGAL to like us. To even befriend us. Sure they will put their hand out for our benefits, but they will hate the hand that it came from. And it is not me or some Australian infidel crackpot who is saying this. It is them!

A prominent text in the Islamic Bookstore in the retail hub of Lakemba, billed as “your superstore of Islamic knowledge”, asks the question for those Muslims who are teetering on the brink of liking an Australian – “Is it allowed to support and love disbelievers?”  Answer: “No, it is not allowed.” So there – it’s final! We are not allowed to be liked.

Worse! A large sign screams from the side of a building, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger!” So they even hate our God/s!

I must thank the PP’s ‘Ingrid’ for bringing this to light for me… an article by Tim Blair of the Daily Telegraph. He spent some time in Lakemba, which through bad luck or atrocious management, is now a Muslim stronghold where its new inhabitants are allowed to display signs that would offend the hell out of most Australians and to scream insults at our women as they pass them in the street.

The article goes on, “A few weeks ago a large crowd of mostly young men assembled outside the Lakemba Hotel. Waving black flags, the men chanted: ‘Palestine is Muslim land. The solution is jihad’.”

Tim Blair said, “I asked a non-Islamic local about that night. ‘You should see them when they really go off,’ she said. ‘That was nothing.’ Another non-Islamic woman said young men sometimes shouted ‘sharmuta’ at her from their cars. She looked up the word online and discovered it was an Arabic term for prostitute.”

Apart from hating infidel Australians and Australian ‘prostitutes’ -this mob also give over shelf space, in their doctrine superstore, to books giving the lowdown on the Jews.

Read it all.

I also found the story about fraud in Australia’s customs and immigration department fascinating. Yikes!  You know it has to be going on here in America too!

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.

Swedish Nationalists’ popularity on the rise as Syrians flood into Sweden; unemployment rises

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2014

This is how it progresses, the UK knows and so does France, as non-assimilating migrant populations flow into “welcoming” Western European countries in ever increasing numbers, those political parties that want to curtail immigration gain popularity.  The question for those who want to save Sweden for Swedes, or France for the French, must be asking themselves, is it too late already?

Jimmie Aakesson, leader of the Sweden Democrats: “…mass unemployment is primarily imported.”

From Bloomberg (Swedish elections are next month).  Emphasis below is mine:

The Sweden Democrats, a nationalist party that targets deep cuts to immigration, is poised to double its support in elections next month as Swedes prepare for a change of government.

Several polls show the party garnering more than 10 percent of votes, enough to ensure that neither the government of Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt nor the Social Democrat-led opposition can win a majority on Sept. 14. Both blocs have refused to collaborate with the Sweden Democrats, even as the electorate tries to drag the group into the mainstream.

Support for the party, which came into being in the 1980s following a merger of political movements including a group called Keep Sweden Swedish, has swelled as the country absorbs a growing number of immigrants and asylum seekers from the Middle East. The development casts a shadow over Sweden’s reputation as an open society that has regularly topped United Nations rankings in accepting asylum seekers.

[....]

Sweden expects more than 80,000 asylum seekers this year, after a 70 percent jump in the first six months. Refugees are entering the country at a pace not seen since the breakup of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, according to the Migration Board in Stockholm.

[....]

Party leader Jimmie Aakesson, who has sought to reinvent the Sweden Democrats to make it more palatable to the broader electorate, says he wants to cut asylum immigration by 90 percent. A poll done by television broadcaster SVT in May showed 44 percent of Swedes think their country has accepted too many immigrants, up from 37 percent a year earlier. Only 10 percent want a more open policy toward foreigners.

[....]

In European Parliament elections in May, the Sweden Democrats won 9.7 percent of the vote, matching a surge across the region for parties opposed to immigration and skeptical toward the European Union. The U.K. Independence Party and French National Front this year became their countries’ biggest political groups in the European parliament.

Swedish unemployment extremely high especially among the immigrant population. So who is going to be working to provide the social “safety net?”

Swedish unemployment is the highest in Scandinavia, even as a report today showed joblessness dropped to 7.1 percent last month from 9.2 percent the previous month. The figures aren’t adjusted for seasonal swings. A year earlier, the jobless rate was 7.2 percent. About 16 percent of people born abroad didn’t have a job last year, compared with 6.3 percent for ethnic Swedes. Finance Minister Anders Borg said this month developments in Iraq and Syria mean there’ll be a “significant” increase in costs that will “hit public finances.”

[....]

Aakesson said in an interview in May that Sweden’s “mass unemployment is primarily imported.”

Immigration risks destroying the welfare state by creating “parallel societies” of people “that don’t think of themselves as part of Swedish society,” he said.

Aakesson is now trying to replicate the success of other Nordic parties set on tightening immigration. In Norway, the Progress Party joined the government for the first time last year while the Danish People’s Party has been a power-broker for more than a decade, shaping some of Europe’s toughest immigration standards.

There is more.

We write about Sweden so Americans know that a welfare state like Sweden’s is not long for this world.   As long time readers know, my bet is on Sweden to be the first European country to succumb to Muslim domination.  At the rate they are going, the numbers are simply against them.

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).

Alinsky: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 13, 2014

Saul Alinsky, as everyone should know by now, is the ‘great’ mind behind the throne—Obama’s throne.  (Thanks to all of you who found my spelling error!Remember the rumors that Alinsky’s portrait hangs in the White House?   In his little book of evil (Rules for Radicals) he lays out his prescription for political success with twelve simple rules.

O’Keefe (who exposed ACORN) wades across the Rio Grande dressed as Osama bin Laden.

Number 5 (and one our side of the political debate seems almost incapable of using) is this one: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Do you remember the incident in 2006 when New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd dared to make fun of Obama’s protruding ears and he chewed her out over it?  She was on to something—Obama knew if jokes and ridicule about him became a common practice he was done (in addition of course to knowing what a thin skin he has anyway!).

So today we start with a little humor!  James O’Keefe knows how to use Rule #5! Funny that we are the radicals now and the Obama-Left is the establishment.

I meant to post it the day it broke on Drudge!  Did you see James O’Keefe dressed as Osama bin Laden wading across the Rio Grande to break into America?  He was not caught by border patrol agents.  From the Washington Times:

Investigative filmmaker James O’Keefe exposes the U.S.-Mexico border’s vulnerability to terrorism in his latest undercover project, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller.

O’Keefe’s Project Veritas video reminds viewers of recent statements by the president and Obama administration officials that the southern border is secure. O’Keefe then proceeds to Hudspeth County, Texas, to easily cross back and forth cross the Rio Grande wearing the costume of modern history’s most recognizable terrorist.

“I see no border patrol. I see no security,” O’Keefe said in the video before donning a bin Laden mask. “Thousands of people have stood in my footsteps right now. They’ve come from South America, Honduras, Guatemala, and they’ve all crossed the border. And if they can cross, anybody can cross.”

Watch the six minute Project Veritas video (it is only sort-of funny when you see how easy it is for terrorists to cross).

Robin Williams takes on the Jihadists

Then for your second laugh of the day, watch comedian Robin Williams take on the Jihadists in Robin Williams’ Last Gift: Angering ISIS (hat tip: Judy).  He actually did get the Islamists going if the comments on twitter are any indication.

From PJ Tattler:

The Islamic State is omnipresent on Twitter these days, so it was curious to see the jihadists weighing in on the death of Robin Williams just as the rest of the world was last night.

However, they weren’t as kind to the kafir, heavily citing the above hilarious sketch he did about jihad and the whole idea of getting 72 virgins upon martyrdom.

Click here to watch Williams’ minute and a half stand-up routine on jihadists and their virgins.

Looking around at the controversy about Williams in the Muslim world, it seems reviews were mixed as this twitter mention (right) indicates.

Seriously…..

When we first started to read about Saul Alinsky back in 2007 (at the same time that RRW got its start), we named a category here “community destabilization” because that is one thing Alinsky (and his community organizers) sought to do in order to “change” America. My theory is that concern for American citizens in poverty went out of vogue (and frankly many Americans climbed into the middle class) so then impoverished immigrants became the pawns of choice—the new community destabilizing element for the radical Left (for Obama, Jarrett et al).

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:

Migrants receiving first aid in Italy. Photo from story about the clash in Calais. http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/dozens-hurt-migrants-clash-france-553817832

 

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!

[Alas, the canary is passed out, near death, on the floor of its cage.]
