Malta ‘invasion of Europe’ news: More die crossing Mediterranean, UN says EU must rescue them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2015

But, how about using the Australian model (which is saving lives) and turning the boats back to Libya and other launching points in North Africa?  It is the only option to save Europe!

Our correspondent in Malta is reporting that this latest wave of migrants is (according to Italian press) being herded on to boats in failed states (Libya! Thanks Hillary!) without even having to pay traffickers.  In other words, it is a deliberate plan to push invaders to Europe, something ISIS is promising to do!

With a new and large-scale boat tragedy reported on the Mediterranean, UNHCR has appealed afresh to governments across the region to prioritize the saving of lives, including by urgently expanding and upgrading search and rescue capacities.

The latest incident involves the capsizing of a double-deck boat on Monday in waters about 120 kilometres south of Lampedusa. 142 people were rescued and eight bodies recovered.

But some 400 others said by survivors to have been aboard are feared lost.

“I was deeply shocked when hearing the news that another boat, an overcrowded boat capsized in the Mediterranean and where four hundred people died. This only demonstrates how important it is to have a robust rescue-at-sea mechanism in the central Mediterranean,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said.

[….]

So far in 2015, some 31,500 people are known to have made crossings to Italy and Greece – the first and second largest countries of arrival respectively. And numbers have recently been picking up further. According to the Italian Coast Guard more than 8,500 people have been rescued from several dozen boats and rubber dinghies since 10 April. If the 400 deaths are confirmed from the latest incident the death toll so far this year will have reached 900.

Amnesty International said that all indications point to a continued rise in the number of migrants and refugees making this trip as the weather improves, violence and persecution continue in countries like Syria and Eritrea, and instability persists in Libya, the launching point for the majority of the people-smuggling voyages across the Mediterranean.

Americans this affects you!

US readers, pay attention to Malta since some of those same illegal migrants rescued by the Maltese navy are being sent to your towns in America

This week we learned that some went to South Carolina!

Spain: illegal migrant numbers increase; Syrians lead the pack with phony documents

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Next in our little tour around the world is Europe (see Australia and South Africa) where the ‘Invasion of Europe’ continues apace because the EU does not have the backbone that the Australian government has at the moment.

By the way, we bring our US readers this news from across the globe so you can contrast and compare what America is doing to protect itself from the inevitable violence and chaos that I believe is coming.  So far, we aren’t heeding any warnings from abroad that I can see.

From The Local we learn that most are getting in with fake documents:

African illegal aliens climbing into Spain!

The number of illegal immigrants arriving in Spain jumped by 68 percent during 2014, the majority entering via Spain’s north African territories using fake documentation.

The number of illegal immigrants entering Spain through Ceuta and Melilla alone increased by more than half during 2014 compared to the year before with a surge in refugees arriving from Syria.

But although the headlines have given the most attention to those attempting to cross into the enclaves by climbing the fences, the majority of those who entered Spain did so with forged documentaton presented at the border.

The total of 12,549 illegal immigrants in 2014 was a big jump from the year before when 7,472 entered Spain illegally, according to Spanish Interior Ministry information.

The largest group arriving with fake documents is from Syria

The data, published by Europa Press on Monday, showed that Syrians comprised the largest group of migrants and that about 60 percent of all those arriving in Spain entered through its north African enclaves.

Comment worth noting: Correspondent from Australia brings us up to date

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Editor’s note:  Since we have been so focused on the ruckus going on in the US with resettlement, especially as Rep. Trey Gowdy does the first brave thing  (out of Congress) that we have ever seen in our nearly eight year project to shed light on the US Refugee Admissions Program, we have been forgetting our readers around the world.

Below is an update from Australia thanks to ‘FatherJon’ where the Abbott government is one of the few in the world discouraging the illegal aliens (phony asylum seekers) from trying to break into their country.

 

 

Ann, the boats have stopped, due to the efforts of our Abbott Federal government. If they don’t get a lot right they’ve certainly got the boat problem solved.

Problem is that under the previous Labor governments a backload of foreign kids built up to several thousands, as families thought that this was a better ruse than just sending teenage ‘Ali’ out as a forward scout. A government can get tough with a young shaver and refuse him landing rights, but they can’t do that with a family which includes young kids, right? Wrong! Kids were locked up with their families, firstly on the mainland, then on off-shore detention centres, then in neighbouring countries that welcomed the cash injection as we off-set our detention costs at home by giving hand-outs to Papua New Guines, Nauru and Cambodia to look after the illegals.

However the human rights lawyers attacked that on all fronts, claiming it was doubly inhumane to lock up children, and the gradual push was to get as many kids on the mainland to be given temporary protection visas. This allowed them to go to school and lead lives outside internment. There are now a little over 100 kids left, who have yet to be placed due to initiatives of the present government.

The Abbott government is now negotiating with Iran to take back its own nationals, who comprise roughly 80% of the detainees, but it’s proving a tough nut to crack as Iran just says ‘we can’t take back our own if they didn’t want to be here in the first place’. Our Foreign Minister is in Iran as I write trying to work out a deal about sending them back.

See our entire Australia’ category for more.

The next US President needs to get some pointers from Tony Abbott!

In Invasion of Europe news, huge refugee flow into Europe fueling the rise of the right wing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2015

This story is from the New York Times yesterday and is built around the news that Bulgaria has completed a significant border fence with Turkey in time for the spring flood of Syrians, other Middle Easterners and Africans trying to get to the more ‘welcoming’ and potentially lucrative, for them, western European countries like Germany and the UK.

Bulgarian security people believe the jihadists are in the flow.

From the New York Times (emphasis is mine):

Bulgaria attempting to keep migrants on the Turkish side of their border.

Lesovo, Bulgaria — Less than two decades after the painstaking removal of a massive border fence designed to keep people in, Bulgarian authorities are just as painstakingly building a new fence along the rugged Turkish border, this time to keep people out.

Faced with a surge of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa — and the risk that they include jihadis intent on terrorist attacks — Europe is bolstering its defenses on many fronts, including this formerly Communist country, which little more than a quarter-century ago was more concerned with stanching the outbound flow of its own citizens to freedom. For the past 16 months, Bulgaria has been carrying out a plan that would sound familiar to anyone along the United States-Mexico frontier: more border officers, new surveillance equipment and the first 20-mile section of its border fence, which was finished in September.

The hardening of the Bulgaria-Turkey border is one very visible manifestation of the agitation across the continent about the economic, social and political ramifications of the surge in immigration. With warmer weather fast approaching and more refugees likely to be on the move, nations along Europe’s southern tier are beefing up border staffing, adding sensors and other technical barriers, expanding refugee facilities, and building walls.

More than 200,000 refugees are known to have penetrated Europe’s land and sea borders last year, not including those who were able to sneak through undetected.

And the numbers for the first two months of this year, when Europe enjoyed its second mild winter in a row, were up sharply compared with the same period last year.

Anti-immigrant sentiment is increasing in Britain, France, Hungary, the Czech Republic and elsewhere across the continent. Parties espousing ethnic nationalism are seeing their support rise, some to the point where they threaten the dominance of more traditional parties.

“The rise of the right wing in Europe is a reaction to this refugee flow,” said Boris B. Cheshirkov, chief spokesman in Bulgaria for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

[….]

Slavcho Velkov, a Bulgarian security expert and university lecturer, said he believed there was more jihadist movement through Bulgaria than the authorities acknowledged.

“I have seen such fighters here with my own eyes,” he said. “I spotted some at the central bus station and struck up a conversation. When I asked them where they were going, they said, ‘We are going to heaven.’ ”

There is a lot more. Continue reading here.

We keep you informed on the ramifications of the ‘Invasion of Europe’ because the US is headed down the same path, just a few years behind Europe.

Israel will begin to deport illegal alien Africans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2015

Israel is one of the only first world countries on the planet attempting to save itself from the onslaught of migrants demanding asylum after illegally entering the country.  Australia is attempting to save itself as well.  Of course, most European countries have their borders wide open, as do we here in the US.

By the way, one of Israel’s critics is the US refugee resettlement contractor—Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

From The Guardian:

Israel will begin deporting asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan to unnamed third countries in Africa even if against their will, the immigration authority announced on Tuesday.

The assumption is that the third countries are Rwanda and Uganda, although Israel has not revealed details.

According to the interior minister, Gilad Erdan, the move will “encourage infiltrators to leave the borders of the state of Israel in an honourable and safe way, and serve as an effective tool for fulfilling our obligations towards Israeli citizens and restoring the fabric of life to the residents of south Tel Aviv”.

Until now, the state exerted pressure and provided a one-off monetary incentive for asylum seekers to leave voluntarily, but only if they signed written consent. Now the state will give them 30 days to leave; those who refuse will face a hearing to determine their indefinite imprisonment.

People in Holot, a detention facility in the Negev, currently requesting asylum will not be immediately affected by the new measure.

Mutasim Ali, a detainee in Holot who fled Darfur and is a leading activist in Israel’s African asylum seeker community, said the new policy was not that different from the current grim reality.

[….]

Eritreans and Sudanese are entitled to collective protection under the 1951 UN refugee convention, to which Israel is a signatory, because their lives would be in danger if they were sent back to their countries of origin.

An estimated 42,000 Eritrean and Sudanese nationals currently reside in Israel, of whom about 2,000 are being held in Holot. According to the immigration authorities, 1,500 left with consent to a third country in 2014 and 7,000 returned to their home countries.

Europe has not yet developed the backbone that Australia has in blocking invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

This is yet one more story about the invasion of Europe and how the continent is bracing for the next onslaught of migrants from North Africa as spring advances, but near the end of the Breitbart piece the answer to the dilemma is clear to all who are willing to see it—the invaders must be blocked as Australia is demonstrating!

European Union countries are bringing the migrants ashore, while Australia sends them back to the country from which they launched (the best way to save lives at sea!). Photo: http://qz.com/350181/the-eu-stands-by-as-thousands-of-migrants-drown-in-the-mediterranean/

From Breitbart (first the same old stuff!):

It is “relatively easy” for jihadists to gain access to the European Union by coming with an influx of refugees, the head of the European Union’s counter-terrorism group has warned.

Although jihadists have to this point seemed to find no difficulty in slipping between Europe and the Islamic State by way of porous eastern borders and Turkey, the enormous volume of humans crossing the Mediterranean every week, and EU-funded efforts to help them, appears to be offering another route of ingress. Counter-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said: “We must be vigilant. It is relatively easy to enter into the European Union when one joins an influx of refugees”, reports TheLocal.at.

Australia is proving it can be done (a nation can save itself)!

Terrorists entering a nation posing as innocent refugees and applying for asylum is a problem with which Australia has grappled, and solved. A terrorist arrested in February for conspiracy to commit murder by stabbing blonde people in the kidneys with hunting knives arrived in the country by boat using a false passport during the Labor-party era of open borders. The new policy of using the Royal Australian Navy to turn migrant boats away has sent such an effective message to would-be travellers only one boat attempted the journey in the whole of 2014.

Breitbart has been doing a really good job of reporting on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  Our complete archive on the topic is here.

In the latest ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, authorities bracing for onslaught as Mediterranean weather improves

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

African young men make up the bulk of the illegal migrants making the voyage to Europe.

From Reuters at the Times of Malta:

With migration across the Mediterranean surging, the European Union’s largest border operation is bracing for a record year of arrivals by sea, especially as summer brings calm waters between Italy and Libya.

Off the eastern coast of Sicily, the 18-member crew of the Icelandic coast guard vessel Tyr – named after a Nordic god of war – are conducting rescue drills in seas more familiar in Greek mythology, preparing for the worst.

Though the United Nations refugee agency has criticised the mission, known as Triton, because its mandate is not search and rescue but border control with patrols near the Italian coast, the EU border agency Frontex says it is saving lives.

“We participate in a lot of search and rescue operations that take place far from the Italian shore, usually about 40 nautical miles north of Libya,” Frontex spokeswoman Ewa Moncure told Reuters on the bridge of the Tyr yesterday.

[….]

About 170,000 entered the EU through Italy last year by way of the dangerous sea crossing organised by human traffickers, mostly in Libya, while more than 3,000 perished.

During the first two months of this year, arrivals were up 43 per cent versus the same period of 2014.

[….]

The governments of southern EU countries – including Italy, Malta, Greece and Spain – have repeatedly criticised the failure of the 28-nation bloc to devote more attention and resources to the growing immigration crisis. To increase solidarity, the European Commission has said it will present a “migration agenda” in May, when good weather is expected to boost the flow of migrants and refugees, many of whom are fleeing civil war in Syria or forced military conscription in Eritrea.

This might be a good time to read The Camp of the Saints as the 4-decades-old novel is now coming true.  Author Raspail was only wrong on his prediction of where the invaders would launch from.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series here.  Remember that the US State Department takes some of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US as “refugees.”

Washington Post opinion: Preventing the Fall of Rome

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 17, 2015

I was interested to see this opinion piece titled so provocatively ‘Preventing the Fall of Rome’ by James Stavridis in the Washington Post last Friday.  Then last evening I heard Father Jonathan Morris speaking about the Pope’s new hardline on ISIS on the Neil Cavuto show.

But, couldn’t we say that this Pope with his welcoming blessing of illegal migrants here in July of 2013 helped fuel the ‘Invasion of Europe?’

In 2013 the new Pope welcomed the illegal migrants to Italy on the island of Lampedusa!

And, surely we won’t forget (at least I won’t) Hillary Clinton’s role in the destabilization of Libya, here.

Here is Stavridis (former allied commander of NATO involved in that very same intervention in Libya):

In 1942, Winston Churchill said that Italy was the “soft underbelly” of Europe and directed Allied invasion efforts there. Today, we are seeing flickers of a similar strategy from the Islamic State.

Following the decapitation of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by radical Islamists professing an allegiance to the Islamic State, the Italian government has begun ramping up efforts to defend its territory from attack. How realistic is this threat? And what should Italy do?

First, we should listen to what the Islamic State has to say : Last year, the group’s propaganda magazine Dabiq featured a cover story headlined “Reflections on the Final Crusade,” which was illustrated with an image of a black jihadist flag flying over St. Peter’s Square. “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” a senior leader of the group was quoted as saying. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.” Elsewhere, the magazine exhorted, “Every Muslim should get out of his house, find a crusader and kill him. . . . And the Islamic State will remain until its banner flies over Rome.”

Hyperbolic? Of course. Literally possible? Not in the least.*** But should Europeans take these words into account as they think about the possibility of attacks on their homeland? You bet.

As Graeme Wood pointed out in his smart, historically grounded piece in the Atlantic this month, “What ISIS Really Wants,” there is an underlying medieval impetus to the Islamic State’s rhetoric and actions. Beheadings of innocents, burnings of prisoners, crucifixions, the enslavement and sale of women and children, the literal sacking of cities — all of these connote a desire to play on the international stage as though the Crusades were still occurring. Thus we come to the importance of Rome, perhaps the most potent symbol of all that the Islamic State hates.

Italy is the gateway to Europe!

Just as Churchill saw Italy as a relatively easy gateway to Europe, the Islamic State has geographic, political and symbolic interests in sailing to Italy. We must do all we can to help Italy prepare.  [Like what? Is Obama going to send troops to protect the Pope from Muslims?—ed]

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

*** Maybe not with military force, but with the inexorable flow of Muslim migrants into Europe and the squishy multicultural-worshiping so-called European leaders in power now.  They seem to have run out of Churchills haven’t they?

A reader from Malta gives us a look at what the illegal aliens are doing to the tiny island nation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 16, 2015

Update March 20th:  Now a bunch of rich Germans are going to rescue illegal aliens at sea, sure hope they take them to Germany and not Malta!

Editors note:  We have been following the plight of Malta since our earliest days of writing this blog.  As an island in the Mediterranean Sea it serves as a beachhead for the invaders arriving in Europe from Africa and the Middle East.

In some weeks our readers from Malta are near the top of the list of our readers worldwide!

There are many other routes to Europe, but this is the clearest one depicting Malta in the line of fire.

Why should you, American readers, care about Malta?

First, because the invasion of Europe should be of great concern to anyone watching the destruction of western civilization and secondly because the US State Department, illegally in my opinion!, transforms some of Malta’s illegal aliens into refugees destined for your American towns!

In the first 5 months of Fiscal Year 2015, we have “resettled” 274*** of Malta’s illegal aliens to America (see stats here).  They are somewhere now in small town America.

Here is what Maltese citizen Charles Sammut told us today:

“I am attaching just a small list of acts of gratitude that we receive from these poor refugees that we welcome on our tiny island. That is just in one day!”

* Woman murdered, Libyan suspect flees to Italy, here.

* Algerian man admits to defiling niece at her grandmother’s house, gets probation, here.

* Syrian accused of raping ‘drunk’ Romanian woman in his car after giving her a lift, here.

I assume it isn’t escaping your notice that these are all crimes against women.

Be sure to see our whole archive on Malta by clicking here.  See especially, rich couple helps ‘rescue’ migrants at sea to bring to Malta.

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

***When you look at the stats note that there are 274 individuals representing 248 cases which means that the vast majority being brought to America are single people—most likely young single men!

‘Humanitarians’ still annoyed at Japan for taking only tiny number of asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 13, 2015

Maybe “annoyed” is too mild a word.

This story is not new to us.  Japan is one of the few modern countries in the world actively working to keep Japan for the Japanese and the UNHCR and the international humanitarian industrial complex are riled up over it (again!), even as Japan is one of the most generous countries offering humanitarian relief to legitimate refugees housed in camps in the Middle East and Africa.

They are saving Japan for the Japanese people! So what is wrong with that?

Most asylum-seekers reaching Japan are clearly economic migrants and are not trying to escape persecution.

From Japan Today (hat tip: sodiumpen):

TOKYO —

Japan accepted 11 asylum seekers out of a record 5,000 applications in 2014, Ministry of Justice data showed, drawing criticism from advocates and lawyers that the country is not doing enough to provide protection to refugees.

The number of asylum applications rose 53% from the previous year, while the refugee recognition rate was 0.2%, one of the lowest among industrialised economies.

“The low recognition rate is shameful,” said immigration lawyer Shogo Watanabe.

In 2013, Japan accepted six refugees, its lowest for 15 years.

A lack of planning for the protection and resettlement of refugees, as well as dysfunction in the system that processes asylum claims, was behind the low intake, said Mieko Ishikawa, director of Forum for Refugees Japan.

Unfortunately Germany and the US have a death wish!

Germany and the United States were the largest destinations for asylum seekers in 2013, receiving 109,580 and 88,360 applications respectively, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees data shows.

Wannabee workers come to Japan and claim asylum

“Most people aren’t coming for political reasons. In countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka, many people think they can come to Japan to work,” said Hiroshi Kimizuka, director of refugee recognition at the Ministry of Justice.

The article identifies one of the complainers as Brian Barbour of the Japan Association of Refugees.  Doesn’t sound like a Japanese name to me, are there western open borders agitators working there?

Unfortunately, I am going away for a few days and have to dash in just a little bit so I can’t dig into Mr. Barbour’s resume or the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network.  If any readers do find out more about him, send links to this post while I’m away.

Our Japan archive is here.
