‘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.

Greece threatens EU: will unleash detained migrants and jihadists on Europe…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 10, 2015

….if the EU and the International Monetery Fund leave Greece hanging!

This would be very interesting to see.  The ‘Invasion of Europe’ would surely be on steroids if the Greeks follow through with the threat!

Kammenos, the Greek defence minister: We will send thousands of migrants and jihadists to Berlin!

 

Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, and Malta are all on the frontiers of the European Union and experiencing the brunt of the invasion by mostly economic migrants from the Middle East and Africa.  Their economies can only stand so much!

From The Telegraph:

Greece will unleash a “wave of millions of economic migrants” and jihadists on Europe unless the eurozone backs down on austerity demands, the country’s defence and foreign ministers have threatened.

The threat comes as Greece struggles to convince the eurozone and International Monetery Fund to continue payments on a £172billion bailout of Greek finances.

Without the funding, Greece will go bust later this month forcing the recession-ravaged and highly indebted country out of the EU’s single currency.

Greece’s border with Turkey is the EU’s frontline against illegal immigration and European measures to stop extremists travelling to and from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) bases in Syria and Iraq.

Panos Kammenos, the Greek defence minister, warned that if the eurozone allowed Greece to go bust it would give EU travel papers to illegal immigrants crossing its borders or to the 10,000 currently held in detention centres.

“If they deal a blow to Greece, then they should know the the migrants will get papers to go to Berlin,” he said.

Why not!  Germany loves its mostly Muslim ‘refugees.’

German pastor wants prostitutes made available to asylum seeking men…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 8, 2015

….to give them relief!

Looking for relief in Germany? Photo at Junge Freiheit

Before you read on, if you missed it, please go to Friday’s post about how the Catholic Church in Germany is unloading centuries-old Catholic abbeys to the government to house mostly Muslim asylum seekers.  If you think I am being overly alarmist about the end of Germany, this story might help persuade you otherwise.

Thanks to reader ‘Caroline’ for sending us the story, here, at Online Focus (in German).

This is Caroline’s summation for us. But, another reader (‘shiratori99′) has sent an English translation at Junge Freiheit (that translation isn’t the greatest).  Here is Caroline:

The pastor’s motto is “free love for free people.” In this way Bordello owners can perform “good works” also. Because in the afternoon at bordellos not much is happening, so that would be a good time to help those, poor deprived (my description sarcastic) asylum seekers. In the last paragraph it says that he won’t reveal funding sources. He says it should be funded by some kind of “support group”. In the 3rd paragraph it says the idea came to him when a friend said to him that in his village 100 asylum seekers were soon arriving & the friend was afraid that that many men would “bother” the women in the village.

Apparently not a word about the fact that these asylum-seeking men are mostly Muslims.

But, maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to criticize the pastor, with the thousands of Muslim migrants entering Germany now, maybe his motive really is to save German fräuleins and to be sure Germany doesn’t challenge Sweden for the title of rape capitol of the world?

Denmark tightens asylum rules, sees dramatic decline in ‘refugee’ applications

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 6, 2015

As Germany marches over the demographic cliff, at least Denmark is trying to save itself!  Or, is it already too late?

 

I suspect sensible Danes saw demonstrators like these (and below) and said, what are we nuts!

 

Last year the government announced major changes in the Danish asylum process limiting the time ‘asylum seekers’ can stay, and those who do stay must wait a long time to bring in the family.

In contrast, once someone is declared a refugee in America they are in for life and can immediately bring in the family!  In fact, with the Syrian civil war, it could end tomorrow, but any Syrian refugees admitted to the US are here for the next ___number of generations!

From The Straits Times:

In January, 626 people – around half of them from Syria – applied for asylum in the Scandinavian country compared with 3,150 in September, according to the Danish Immigration Service.

The Danish government said in September it would introduce a temporary, one-year residence permit for asylum seekers fleeing civil wars such as the Syrian conflict.

The new permit, which came into force this year, can be extended for another two years and does not allow family reunifications to be granted during the first year.

“I think one of the most crucial factors for how many people apply is the length of the asylum and the conditions for family reunification,” the ruling Social Democratic party’s spokesman on integration issues, Ole Haekkerup, told news agency Ritzau.

“This is where the government has made an effort,” he added.

Oh brother! Sweden wants to protect itself from illegal migrants with fingerprint requirements

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2015

…..How about protecting itself by putting the military on all of its borders?  In airports and seaports too and turn the invaders back?  Or, does Sweden even have a military?

Interior Minister Anders Ygeman: We need fingerprints because we Swedes can’t tell one Middle Easterner from another from their passport photos! They all look alike.

What a coincidence!  Where are most of the phony passport holders coming from—why Turkey of course!  See our earlier post today, here.

From the Business Times:

[STOCKHOLM] Sweden needs to beef up its border security to stop passport fraud, a government inquiry argued Monday as the country grapples with unprecedented levels of immigration.

The inquiry proposed fingerprint scans for all nationalities entering Sweden from outside the passport-free Schengen Area in a move that pre-empts the European Union, which has yet to make such screenings mandatory.

[….]

Sweden has seen immigration levels soar in the wake of the Syrian conflict and expects a record 90,000 asylum seekers to arrive in Sweden in 2015.

[….]

Among travellers entering Sweden from non-Schengen countries with either fake or lookalike passports, 77 per cent had come from Turkey, a frequent transit point for refugees from Syria and Iraq.

So if they catch the fraudulent asylum-seekers are they going to have the spine to send them back to Turkey? I doubt it!

HOW CAN THEY BE SO STUPID (sorry I’m shouting!)?

See our complete Sweden archiveThe country is my bet for the first European country to fall in the Muslim invasion of Europe.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive, here.

Of course, most Western countries are being equally stupid, including the US!

Turkey: Syrian refugees wait in grand hotel for boats to take them to Europe as the invasion continues

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2015

50,000 Syrians wait in a Turkish hotels to be smuggled into Germany, Sweden, Finland and Belgium.

There is so much news today, I don’t know what to write about first!  But, be sure to see my previous post about the US Justice Department letting a Somali (refugee) terrorist leave the country with vital information about the DC area.

This is one more in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series—this time the invasion is being aided and abetted by Turkey (no surprise!).

Syrians hanging around in the hotel in Mersin waiting for the call to board a ship! Photo: Fabio Bucciarelli for Al Jazeera America

From Al-Jazeera:

MERSIN, Turkey — During summer months, Turks and Arabs on holiday crowd the Turkish port of Mersin, a town of 1.5 million people on the Mediterranean Sea. Stores lining the seafront sell Armani handbags and Turkish women sit unveiled in coffee shops, texting on their smartphones.

But in the last few years, hotels on Mersin’s waterfront have become home to a different kind of traveler.

Upper-middle-class refugees fleeing the violence of Syria’s civil war have used Mersin as an early waypoint – a safe harbor of sorts – on their way to new lives in countries like Germany, Sweden, Finland and Belgium.

In fact, Mersin’s tourist hotels, built recently but already showing signs of aging, serve as home to at least 50,000 Syrian refugees.

In the race to house them all, Green Tower hotel is ground zero. Here, Turkish has been replaced with Arabic, and some 300 Syrians wander the property aimlessly, waiting in limbo between the hell of war and an uncertain emigration to Europe. Rarely do they leave the hotel complex, in fear of missing the call that could very well represent the beginning of their new lives.

The one-way trip to Western Europe is organized by the Syrian and Turkish mafias and managed in detail by smugglers. Charging about $6,000 per person, the journey is accessible only to those who have put money aside — Syrians who have sold their homes and shops and managed to scrape together just enough to move their families away from danger.

In the past, most migrants who’ve found their way to the shores of Mersin were from African countries, rescued from small, waterlogged crafts. But this migration is different.

Smugglers transport refugees from Mersin to points throughout Europe on large ships, capable of squeezing up to 800 people into their hold.

[….]

According to Abu Hasan, a Syrian smuggler from Aleppo, the refugees used to be sent to Italy and Greece, but now head to Germany, Sweden, Finland and Belgium.

There is a lot more, with many photos, here.  Learn why Italy and Greece are not desirable landing sites any longer.

Why doesn’t the government of Turkey clean up the smuggler business?   I would guess two reasons—money, and because the government of Turkey is likely very happy to see Europe increase its Muslim population and thus bring about an Islamic state in Europe sooner than later.

And, come to think of it, where is the UN High Commissioner for Refugees?

Pro-refugee, pro-Islam protesters take to the streets in Dresden, Germany to say “willkommen”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 2, 2015

So it must be fine with them if beleaguered Greece sends their asylum-seeker overload to Germany, right?

Protesters carried multicolor balloons to celebrate multiculturalism über alles.

 

First from Sputniknews on Dresden:

The protest was designed to promote the idea of multiculturalism in Germany and contribute to the elimination of racism and discrimination.

Anastasia Raevskaya — Thousands of people gathered on Saturday in Dresden to demonstrate against xenophobia and racism, promoted by the German anti-islamization movement Pegida.

Carrying balloons of different colors with the legend “Refugees welcome” and holding placards urging tolerance towards foreigners — students, refugees, representatives of various political movements and other activists crowded the city center to protest against discrimination and express their solidarity with people of various religious and cultural backgrounds.

The demonstration was organized by a nationwide social movement known as #NoPegida, which formed as resistance to the notorious right-wing group Pegida. Over the last few months, Germany has experienced a wave of anti-Islam sentiment, partly related to an increased influx of refugees from Syria and Iraq. Pegida or Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West was responsible for organizing anti-immigrant demonstrations, which have taken place all over the country since October 2014.

Read more here.

So, we ask, if Germany is so welcoming, why is the German government upset with economically stressed Greece for sending its asylum-seeker overload northward?

From The Times:

Berlin is demanding answers from Athens after it emerged that the former Greek government issued documents to Syrian refugees that would allow them to claim asylum in Germany.

Syrians who managed to reach Greece have told The Times that they convinced Athens to provide them with official residency papers. Once they had these, they were able to book flights to northern European countries more generous to migrants.

The arrangement suited both parties, it is alleged. The Syrians did not want to settle in Greece, because the economy was in crisis and there were few jobs. Unlike Germany, it does not promote a policy of family reunification, where migrants can bring relatives to live with them once they are settled.

Greece does not want refugees and is struggling to keep itself afloat in the midst of a row with Brussels over the repayment of €240 billion of debt.

[….]

With official Greek residency papers, Syrians have been able to book a flight to Germany, rip their papers up during the flight and claim asylum once they land in Germany.

The Times tells us that the migrants want to go to welcoming Germany, Denmark or Sweden.

Alas, the clock is ticking on Germany and the whole of Europe.  See our extensive archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ by clicking here.

Austria passes new law in attempt to slow Muslim radicalization; Imams must speak German

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 27, 2015

They want Muslim Imams in Austria to speak German and they want a prohibition on foreign funds coming in to the 400-plus Islamic organizations operating in the country.

And, get this!  58% of Austrians think “radicalization” of the country’s Muslim population is underway.  (only 58%!)

They better slow Muslim immigration while they are at it!  Or, no German language requirement is going to help them!

From Al Jazeera:

Austria’s parliament has passed a bill amending historical laws on Muslim organisations which will ban foreign sources of financing and require imams to be able to speak German.

The text aims to promote what conservative Integration Minister Sebastian Kurz called an “Islam of European character” by muting the influence of foreign Muslim nations and organisations, and offering Austrian Muslims a mix of increased rights and obligations in practising their faith in the central European country.

However, the law has generated opposition from several quarters, including Austrian Muslim groups that call it “discrimination” that imposes restrictions on Islam that other religions are not saddled with.

[….]

The passing of the law comes amid estimates indicating about 200 people from Austria – including women and minors – have gone to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

A poll published by the OGM institute on Tuesday found 58 percent of Austrians feeling “radicalisation” of the nation’s Muslims was underway.

The legislation bans Islamic cultural organisations and imams in Austria from receiving funding from abroad.

Report: Members of Islamic terrorist organizations coming across Texas border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 27, 2015

But, this is what I would like to know:  Where are they now?  Incarcerated? Deported, or in asylum court telling some fabricated sob story with the help of a gullible immigration lawyer?

Informative isn’t it!

From the Washington Post:

A top Texas law enforcement agency says border security organizations have apprehended several members of known Islamist terrorist organizations crossing the southern border in recent years, and while a surge of officers to the border has slowed the flow of drugs and undocumented immigrants, it’s costing the state tens of millions of dollars.

In a report to Texas elected officials, the state Department of Public Safety says border security agencies have arrested several Somali immigrants crossing the southern border who are known members of al-Shabab, the terrorist group that launched a deadly attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya, another Somalia-based group once funded by Osama bin Laden. Another undocumented immigrant arrested crossing the border was on multiple U.S. terrorism watch lists, the report says.

[….]

Authorities also apprehended immigrants who said they were members of terrorist organizations in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

[….]

The department said it had come into contact in recent years with “special interest aliens,” who come from countries with known ties to terrorists or where terrorist groups thrive. Those arrested include Afghans, Iranians, Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans and Pakistanis. In all, immigrants from 35 countries in Asia and the Middle East have been arrested over the past few years in the Rio Grande Valley.

There is more, read it all.

Berlin, Germany traces latest measles outbreak to refugees; toddler dies

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

More news that unvaccinated refugees are helping spread measles in Germany.  No surprise as Germany has virtually opened its doors to refugees from throughout Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.  If anyone dares challenge the government on this open door policy, one is immediately labeled a Nazi.  Wave bye-bye to Germany?

 

Refugees headed west from the former Yugoslavia. http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-eu-31154596

 

 

From The Local:

There have been 447 cases of measles confirmed in the first seven weeks of 2015, as Berlin comes to grip with the biggest measles outbreak since 2001, reported the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) earlier this month.

The outbreak is being traced back to a community of refugees from Serbia as well as Bosnia and Herzogovina, where routine vaccinations were not carried out during the Yugoslavian civil war.

Earlier this month we told you that massive numbers of refugees are on the move from the former Yugoslavia and are headed westward toward Germany and other ‘welcoming’ countries.  And, a week ago we reported on the German measles outbreak, here.
