Merkel blasts anti-immigrant rioters, Hollande wrings his hands

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 25, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

Update:  Merkel suspends EU rules so that more Syrians can STAY!

Have a look at the latest from Europe.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel harangues German citizens concerned about the future of their culture and country and socialist French President Francois Hollande says ‘golly gee, guess we better do something.’  What the heck!  They have been doing nothing to stop the tide of illegal aliens (mostly Muslims from Africa and the Middle East) in to Europe and they wonder why this crisis is escalating!

Merkel and Hollande

Don’t count on Merkel and Hollande to save Europe!

Stop the (damn) boats!  They should have listened to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott months ago.  I personally think it is too late now!

Readers! Don’t let it become too late for America!

From Bloomberg Business:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande condemned anti-immigrant riots in Germany, while pressing all European Union countries to help deal with the continent’s tide of refugees.

Meeting for the first time after the political summer break, the leaders of Europe’s two biggest economies elevated the refugee crisis to a top priority Monday, placing it alongside challenges such as the conflict in Ukraine.

“There are moments in European history when we face exceptional circumstances, and these are exceptional circumstances that will last,” Hollande said alongside Merkel before they met for talks in Berlin. “So rather than wait and then cope on a day-to-day basis, we must get organized and strengthen our policies.”

There is much more, but no time to snip it.  Please read it all, here.

Be sure to see the part of the story where the ‘refugee’ from Afghanistan says he is more scared in Germany than he was in Afghanistan!  So, what does that tell you about what sort of an ‘asylum seeker’ he really is?  He is just one more economic migrant as are most of those flooding in to Europe.

Macedonia: Syrian refugee “…tell Brussels we are coming, no matter what” as thousands break through the border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

From Reuters:

Many thousands who have arrived in Greece from North Africa and the Middle East are not staying but moving northward on their own!

GEVGELIJA, Macedonia (Reuters) – Thousands of migrants stormed across Macedonia’s border on Saturday, overwhelming security forces who threw stun grenades and lashed out with batons before apparently abandoning a bid to stem their flow through the Balkans to western Europe.

Some had spent days in the open with little or no food or water after Macedonia on Thursday declared a state of emergency and sealed its borders to migrants, many of them refugees from war in Syria and other conflicts in the Middle East.

But by nightfall on Saturday, thousands had crossed the frontier, milling around the border town of Gevgelija where busses had converged from all over the country and trains left in quick succession to take them north to the next leg of their journey through Serbia.

There was no official word from the government, but the level of organization suggested authorities had opted to move the migrants on as quickly as possibly, having tried and failed to keep them out with razor wire, teargas and stun grenades.

[….]

Thirty-two-year-old Saeed from Syria said of the blocked border: “We know this was not Macedonia and the Macedonian police. This was the European Union. Please tell Brussels we are coming, no matter what.”

So where will they be moved to?  Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, where?

IKEA murders could prove to be tipping point for Sweden

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

We told you about the horrific murder of innocent shoppers, a mother and son, in an IKEA super store here the other day.   I’ve been wondering at what point would Swedish citizens get angry, seriously angry, about Sweden’s open door immigration policy.

Sweden Eritriens

On Thursday, the younger of the two Eritrean asylum seekers was released by the court. (He is the guy under the jacket.) http://www.thelocal.se/20150814/fears-of-retribution-after-ikea-double-stabbings

Here Breitbart reports that demonstrators are taking to the streets to voice their anger at the government for allowing massive numbers of migrants from the Middle East and Africa to be spread throughout the country.

By the way, this morning the Washington Post (irresponsibly raising the Nazi specter) is beating up on German citizens who have for some time been pretty darn angry about the invasion of their country.  In Sweden they are throwing eggs and we are told in Germany that they are burning down asylum centers.

Will this level of anger at the government for allowing mass migration be in American streets one day?

Here is Breitbart on the IKEA slaughter (hat tip: Mary):

Swedish police are scrambling to defend the national immigrant population against angry natives as tensions boil over following a double murder in an IKEA superstore this week.

Although the force has proven unable to solve the rising tide of immigrant violence in multicultural melting pot city Malmö, it has jumped to declare protests against the killing illegal and shut them down. Expressing concern that the inhabitants of asylum centres “get worried when these things happen”, a police spokesman explained how they had cleared a protest.

Meeting outside the same asylum refuge where the two suspected murderers lived prior to the IKEA attack, a small group of men held banners and threw eggs. The informal protest took place as one of the men arrested at the scene of the double murder was released from prison, and his lawyer demanded compensation from the state, as his client had found the process of being arrested traumatic.

Oust the government, say protesters!

Perhaps more importantly for the major political parties, this growing pressure for change is finding release in the form of new political parties such as the Sweden Democrats. The Eurosceptic, anti-mass immigration party continues to make strides in elections despite efforts to starve them of publicity, going so far even as working to ban their political campaigns from appearing on national poster-boards.

Others are taking a more direct approach. A cross-party campaign is presently gathering followers to launch a national day of protest in September when parliament reconvenes, to call for the total resignation of the government in shame over their failure to deal with the migrant violence crisis.

In one of several articles I read on this case, I learned that in 2014, 11,500 Eritreans applied for asylum in Sweden.  That would be in addition to tens of thousands of other migrants from Iraq, Somalia, and Syria to name just a few.

See our extensive archive on Sweden here.   And, of course this post is archived in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series.

Minnesota: Attorneys for Somali refugees arrested on terrorism charges say ISIS not a terror group

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 13, 2015

…..they say that ISIL (ISIS) is a functioning government.

This story is a few days old (trying to catch up quickly this morning on lots of news).

Somali terror

Four of seven Somali ‘youths:’ “In April, six of the seven defendants in the case were arrested by FBI agents following a 10-month investigation. No trial date has been set. A hearing on motions is scheduled Sept. 2 in front of U.S. District Judge Michael Davis.”

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

In one of several motions filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis, the attorneys argued that despite its reputation for brutality, ISIL carries many characteristics of a government that tends to day-to-day business and that therefore criminal charges against the defendants are too broad.

“While the group has adopted harshly violent and repressive tactics, and engages in military and insurgency attacks against the Syrian and Iraqi armies, it has also embarked on a systematic process of civilian governance over the eight to 10 million people with the territory it controls,” attorneys said.

Continue reading the argument, then check out this motion.  Large amounts of security will taint the jury pool say lawyers for the ‘youths.’

Other motions included a request to dial back a heavy security presence at the trial because the attorneys said it could negatively influence a jury. Current hearings have a large contingent of police and Homeland Security officers, and at least one bomb-sniffing dog.

“If allowed, this extraordinary display of security would be present from the moment jurors arrive at the courthouse until after they leave, serving as a constant reminder, not just of the fact that Defendants are accused of a crime, but of the fact that they are accused of a crime related to terrorism,” the motion stated. “ … The security appears not to be designed to protect against potential danger posed by the accused but, rather, perceived danger from members of the Somali community who are not accused of any crime.”

We have been writing since 2008 about ‘Somali youths’ (media never refers to them as ‘Somali refugees!’) leaving (or wanting to leave the good life you paid for) and returning either to Africa to get jihad training from Al-Shabaab or now to go to Syria/Iraq and join ISIS.

Someone should figure out how much all of these refugee trials and incarcerations are costing the US taxpayer.  Local and state courts should bill the US State Department!  We have 1,840 posts in our ‘crimes’ category, of course some are abroad, but you can be sure a big chunk of those crime reports are from the US.

Somali ‘refugees’ want Swedish citizenship so as to travel back and forth to Somalia!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

This story from Sweden highlights a question we have too?

Swedish Somalis

Demonstrating what a sham the refugee program is throughout the world! Somalis want to travel back and forth between Sweden and Somalia.  So how persecuted were they in the first place?

If Somalis are so fearful of persecution in Somalia that they expect refugee status in first world countries, why are they traveling back there (to their supposedly dangerous homeland) for business and pleasure?

Heck, Somalis in America are doing it too!  We have a Somali woman in Minnesota running for the presidency of Somalia, and we have the UN sending Somalis out of UN camps and back home to Somalia, so why should any western country need to take in one more Somali to partake of welfare generosity in places like Sweden and the US?

Here is the news from Speisa.com where we learn that Sweden has at least 50,000 Somalis living in the country (hat tip: Joanne):

Mohamed Husein came to Sweden from Somalia in 2009, along with his wife who claimed she was attacked by terrorists in their homeland.

Mohamed is now unhappy that he can not fill in an application for Swedish citizenship yet. He is eager to able to travel back to the country he claims to have fled, where his life supposedly is in danger – to visit his mother and establish business contacts.

– I can not travel outside the EU and I can not visit my mother in Somalia, says Mohamed.

He explains that with a Swedish citizenship, he would be able to develop an export and import company.

[….]

To most readers the obvious obvious question should be – why should Mohamed be given Swedish citizenship in two years if he believes that he can travel back to Somalia now?

And Mohamed is not unique. Approximately 9 out of 10 who are granted asylum in Sweden do not meet the conventional criteria to be classified as refugees.

Many regularly travel back to the country they claim to have fled.

Last year about 1000 Somalis were stranded in Mogadishu, after their tour operator, Fly Olympic, suddenly went bankrupt when they were on holiday in Somalia, from Sweden.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive here.  And, if you want to learn more about how Sweden (the welfare state) is killing itself, go here for our extensive archive on Sweden.

Related!  Just in, Swedish asylum seekers from Eritrea arrested in fatal (apparently random) stabbing of mother and son in store.

UNHCR helping Somalis return home! And, so should we!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 9, 2015

Somalis going home

Somalis line up to return to Mogadishu from Kenyan refugee camp, yet we are still bringing them to the US from the same camp! Why? http://www.unmultimedia.org/radio/english/2015/08/somali-refugees-helped-to-return-home/#.VceRpflViko

So why are we still hauling them into the US by the thousands every year?

From Somaliaweyn Media Center (hat tip: Joanne)

(UNHCR) – More than 100 Somali refugees from Kenya flew into the Somali capital Mogadishu on Wednesday, marking a new chapter in the voluntary return process.

Earlier in the day, two planes, carrying 116 people, took off from Dadaab camp in Northeastern Kenya. Dadaab is the largest refugee settlement in the world and hosts about 333,000 Somali refugees.

The voluntary returns came after the Tripartite Commission formed by UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees) and the Governments of Kenya and Somalia, agreed to step up support for voluntary repatriations of Somali refugees.

The Commission met on 29 July and decided to scale up assistance to Somali refugees in Kenya wishing to return home and agreed on a strategy that envisaged the voluntary repatriation of some 425,000 Somali refugees over a five-year period. Beside Dadaab, other Somali refugees live in Kakuma refugee camp and in major towns and cities across the country.

Despite continuing security challenges, refugees have started to return to Somalia. Between December 2014 and early August, 2015, some 2,969 Somali refugees returned to the districts of Luuq, Baidoa and Kismayo, with UNHCR support as part of a pilot phase which has now ended.

Still more have returned spontaneously without receiving assistance from UNHCR…

I guess these are the brave and resourceful Somalis who want to help make their country a better place to live!  

Look at the data!  We have admitted 7,044 Somalis to the US just this fiscal year!  Wouldn’t it make more sense for the UN to educate them in Dadaab and send them HOME to rebuild Somalia rather than drop them off as meatpacking cheap (slave) labor in the American Midwest or reliable voters to support the likes of Rep. Keith Ellison.

Heck, we even have a Minnesota woman running to be President of Somalia!

Is it time for that repatriation fund?

How about a bill in Congress that would fund the return of Somalis to Somalia (throwing in a little start up money) and let them go home!

And, at the same time, stop new ones from coming in!

That is something every thinking person could get behind!  Gee, if Rep Ellison truly cared about the Somalis and rebuilding their homeland he should introduce this bill!  This might even be a bill that could reach across the aisle!

Rainbow Nation news from PBS: Black South Africans continue persecution of other black Africans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2015

Well at least someone in the US media is talking about it!  South Africa the highly touted welcoming “Rainbow Nation” is once again seeing serious violence erupt as South African citizens (the black ones!) are trying to push out the migrants (the black ones!) coming in from troubled nations across the continent.

The media must label it ‘xenophobia’ because the word ‘racism’ does not apply.  And, besides everyone knows that blacks cannot be racist, right!

obama-danish

Barack and Michelle Obama mourning the man who is responsible for the South Africa we see today. At Nelson Mandela’s funeral in 2013. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/national_world/2013/12/11/selfie-gate-michelle-obama-upset-at-husbands-behavior.html

Here is the story at the PBS Newshour. Check it out for yourself.  See the “xenophobic” violence. It isn’t just me pointing it out (although my language is a bit clearer!).

Can you blame the foreigners who heard about all the rights anyone in South Africa is entitled to under the Constitution that Nelson Mandela’s political party said were theirs—the right to a home, food, health care, education, work, blah, blah, blah.

In fact, remember that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg famously said she liked the South African Constitution better than ours!

The migrants came for what they heard South Africa had promised!

Ask yourself, is South Africa better off today governed by the communists of the African National Congress?

The ANC`s key objective is the creation of a united, non-racial, non-sexist and democratic society.

This means the liberation of Africans in particular and black people in general from political and economic bondage. It means uplifting the quality of life of all South Africans, especially the poor.

So to American readers!

If you think South Africa’s problems are not yours, think again.   So far this year we have taken 621 REFUGEES from South Africa which is supposed to be a safe nation offering asylum to those who get there.  I’m guessing that a large number will be Somalis and that not one is white.

We have followed the violence in the mythical “Rainbow Nation” for years, see our complete archive here.

Time for all good Americans to read The Camp of the Saints

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2015

Invasion of Europe News…..

VDARE has pointed us to this Powerline post by Steven Hayward today entitled ‘Camp of the Saints, Revisited.’  I recommend this now over 40-year-old eerily prescient novel to all of you for your summertime reading ‘pleasure.’  Warning! It is not for the squeamish or faint of heart!

Hayward says what we have been saying and why we post as often as possible on the ‘Invasion of Europe’the American media is not paying attention to the growing migration crisis in Europe.

From Powerline:

If you want to see the immigration crisis getting completely out of control, check out northern France, where several thousand “migrants”—as the press describes them—are trying to charge through the Channel Tunnel to Britain, where, they suppose, the welfare state will take care of them. It hasn’t been receiving much media coverage in the U.S., except for the Wall Street Journal, which notes today that the disruption at the Channel is bad for business.

As the Wall Street Journal quoted one aspiring client a few days ago:

“Here, no one looks after me,” the teenager said. “In the U.K., I can be a big man.”

No one looks after me. The Telos of the welfare state, in five words. More revealing is this passage:

“Stopping them is becoming very difficult since they’re just not afraid of the police anymore,” a French police officer said.

It looks more and more like Jean Raspail’s controversial 1973 novel, The Camp of the Saints, come to life.

Europe’s refugees: Here come the infectious diseases

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 2, 2015

Invasion of Europe News….

This latest disease is not one that immediately comes to mind like TB and HIV/AIDS that we usually hear about.  BTW, American readers should know that even our “screened” refugees are permitted entry into the US with TB and HIV.

From Outbreak News Today (never heard of it, but maybe it is time to follow this news site!).  Story titled:  ‘Europe reporting imported cutaneous diphtheria in refugees’

People are fleeing certain African and Middle Eastern countries in large numbers and many are headed to the countries of Europe. In fact, one report notes that about 5,000 people flee Eritrea each month, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN refugee agency.

One of the things that can come from refugees and asylum seekers are infectious diseases contracted in their home country.

Europe is currently reporting cases of cutaneous diphtheria in asylum seekers to several countries to include Denmark, Sweden and Germany. To date, nine cases have been reported by the three nations.

The disease is contagious and can be deadly.  More problems and expense for Europe’s socialized medical system.

Go here for our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive.  And, for new readers, you should know that we have a ‘health issues’ category, here (with 278 previous posts on health problems of refugees).

Calais crisis: Illegal migrants say they will continue to swarm the tunnel to get into the UK

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 1, 2015

Invasion of Europe news……

You have probably seen all of the news this week from Calais, France where illegal aliens who got into Europe elsewhere are piled up looking to get into the UK where they think they will get the most social service benefits.  BTW, legitimate asylum seekers are supposed to ask for asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive.  Asylum shopping is what is happening here.

From the International Business Times:

After thousands of migrants made repeated attempts to storm the Channel Tunnel that connects the French port of Calais with Britain this week, politicians and newspapers in the country have begun talking tough. Whether British authorities can match the determination of migrants, many of whom have endured dangerous, months-long journeys in their quest to reach England, however, remains uncertain.

Over 3,500 attempts have been made by migrants, many of whom are from countries in Africa, the Middle East and central Asia, to enter the tunnel this week. The deployment of French riot police, armed with pepper spray, dogs and batons, has not succeeded in stopping the attempts, though on Wednesday, the latest day for which data is available, only 300 people were reported to have tried to access the tunnel, down from 1,500 each of the previous two nights.

A Sudanese man died on Wednesday, after being hit by a truck that transports vehicles through the tunnel, French police said, according to Reuters. French media said he was the ninth migrant to be killed in the crisis since early June.

Prime Minister David Cameron warned migrants Thursday that the U.K. was “no safe haven,” for them, adding that illegal immigrants would be removed from the country. Earlier in the week, he described the thousands of migrants gathered in Calais as a “swarm,” prompting angry condemnation from rights groups and opposition politicians.

Continue reading here.

I am continually amazed that our so-called leaders, especially the Republicans, don’t see what is happening in Europe and know that we are headed down the same path.  Do you think that some Romans saw the fall of Rome in advance?
