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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
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.

Apparently Amnesty International ginned-up the rally to pressure the government to accept 1,000 Syrian refugees.
Pro-refugee demonstrators in Prague last week.
When you consider that the US plan to resettle 9,000-10,000 has now stalled on news that the FBI says it is virtually impossible to screen Syrian refugees for terrorist connections, 1,000 is a huge number for a small country to screen and absorb. In fact, the US has taken in only 249 Syrians this fiscal year which is 4 months old, and it is unlikely that, at that rate, even one thousand will be resettled in the US this fiscal year.
Prague, Feb 20 (ČTK) — About 150 people attended a meeting that was held in the center of Prague in protest against racism and xenophobia and in support of the Czech acceptance of refugees, mainly from the war-afflicted Syria.
The rally, whose motto was Refugees, welcome, was addressed by several speakers who condemned xenophobia and racism. The participants also observed a minute of silence in honour of the killed Syrians who failed to flee their homeland.
The demonstrators then walked through the centre of Prague, carrying banners and chanting slogans.
The demonstrators were invited to sign a petition launched by Amnesty International and demanding the acceptance of 1,000 Syrian refugees by Prague.
I have to say, it is the most curious thing to me that groups like Amnesty are not criticizing Obama. Most of the refugee contractors and other Open Borders groups expected the Obama Administration to take more than 10,000 last year.

See below for the Emporia, KS connection!
We told you about the fraudulent asylum claim on February 7th, but thanks to Creeping Sharia for finding a longer article on the sentencing at My SanAntonio that contains some information I found most interesting.
Here is My San Antonio:
A Somali man was sentenced in a San Antonio courtroom Thursday to 15 years in federal prison for lying to get into the U.S., as well as a never-before-disclosed admission that he had helped a terrorist group.
Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim crossed the US border in 2007 at Hidalgo and was granted asylum (refugee status) and “resettled” in Emporia, KS.
Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim, 43, previously admitted that he lied his way into the country or left out damaging details — such as his relationship to two people who made international headlines because of their reported ties to terrorist groups.
But the FBI, Border Patrol, acting U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin and a national security official disclosed Thursday that Ibrahim secretly also pleaded guilty in July to sending e-mails in support of al-Shabab and providing money to a friend affiliated with that terrorist group. The charges were made public at his sentencing Thursday, but officials made no mention of his cooperation that led to them keeping the details secret for more than six months.
The affidavit said Ayrow was the former leader of al-Shabab and was killed in a U.S. airstrike in 2008. Aweys was affiliated with al-Shabab and al-Ittihad al-Islami, which the U.S. has placed on a list of specially designated global terrorist groups.
Now look at this!
Ibrahim was granted refugee status in the U.S. and resettled in Emporia, Kansas, after coming through Hidalgo in May 2007. But the status was granted based on fraudulent information, the affidavit said.
There is more here.
Emporia, KS connection
If you have been reading RRW since we began writing, you may remember that there was a huge problem with Somalis in Emporia, KS in 2007, most of whom had been lured there by jobs at Tyson Foods. Overnight it seemed Emporia was flooded with Somali refugees. If I recall correctly there wasn’t even a contracted resettlement office there.
There was such a public outcry that Tyson Foods actually shut the main part of the plant down and moved the Somalis elsewhere. We wrote about what was happening for months and created a special category, here, just for news from Emporia.
As a matter of fact, Bobbi Mlynar writing at the Emporia Gazette on November 28, 2007 told the citizens there about our refugee problem in Hagerstown, MD and pretty accurately described what was the origin of RRW.
So back to Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim—there really was a liar (a phony refugee) and prospective terror sympathizer living in Emporia at the time citizens there were agitated!
One more thing, Ibrahim did not come in the usual resettlement process, he entered the country illegally by crossing the border in Texas and asked for and received ASYLUM.
How many more Ibrahims are out there?

While Sweden still lives in la-la land, the Finnish people are not so naive….
Although Finland didn’t take very many refugees to begin with, I wonder if that brutal murder committed allegedly by a Somali in a small town pub had anything to do with Finnish feelings toward asylum seekers.
American readers take note, in Finland, communities have a say about taking refugees while in America the State Department and its contractors are constantly scouting out new and unsuspecting towns and you will get refugees dropped off with little notice if you aren’t continually on watch.
From Sputnik International:
Finnish municipalities have significantly cut quotas on receiving refugees from foreign countries.
Refugee quotas have significantly been reduced by Finnish municipalities, with just 40 of them signaling readiness to receive refuges, local media outlets reported.
Last year, the municipalities received more than 1,000 refugees, a record number that experts attributed to additional government funding and the Syrian conflict.
In addition, Finland increased the quota for refugees from 750 to over a thousand.
This year, the refugee quota stands at 1050, but it is unlikely to be implemented in time.
Meanwhile, the regions of Satakunta and South Ostrobothnia have said that they will not receive refugees this year.
People fleeing Syria remain refugees of choice for Finnish municipalities, while refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo are reportedly the most unwelcome people.
This last line is very interesting! Apparently Finns are still o.k. with Syrians, but one of the UNHCR’s newest big resettlement pushes—for those from the Democratic Republic of Congo—is getting a cold reception. American readers know that we are expected to receive most of the 50,000 from DR Congo within five years (we are already into that five year resettlement plan).

Thanks to everyone who sent this important report from the Gatestone Institute which defines very clearly how the multicultural experiment in the socialists’ dream land—Sweden—has gone very wrong. And, it isn’t just Islamophobes making the case, here is an incredible graph from the United Nations.
Go here for our complete archive on Sweden where we have been making the case for years that the country is the immigration ‘canary in the coal mine’ for the West. Don’t miss ‘UN calls Sweden ‘Afrophobic’!

Her article appears at Townhall.com (thanks to Paul for letting us know) and also at World Net Daily.
Go here to Townhall.com to see what I said on my recent trip to St. Louis.
Asked if I really meant that last line:
“We can survive terrorism. We can’t survive migration.”
Yes, I absolutely do mean it! While we watch the ‘shiny object’—Islamic terrorism—we aren’t paying attention to the Hijra: Modern Day Trojan Horse!
And, I also meant the last line I said on Fox & Friends last week:
I also think that immigration is our existential threat in this country, both [because of] the numbers and who we are bringing in.
Over a year ago, Schlafly published a stunning report at Eagle Forum on how the millions of immigrants pouring into the country would destroy the Republican Party (among other things). We told you about it here when we posted on an Ann Coulter column on the report.

This is a little story I didn’t get around to a couple of days ago. Thanks to Robin (and maybe someone else) who sent it my way.
From Fox News:
Authorities in Berlin say a spike in measles infections has been traced to unvaccinated refugees but at least two measles cases appear to have come from the United States.
Berlin has recorded 468 cases of measles this year, more than the rest of Germany had during all of 2014.
Dr. Dirk Werber of Berlin’s state health office said Friday that a child asylum seeker from Bosnia is considered the index case because many subsequent infections among refugees were genetically identical.
Measles has since spread to Berlin’s non-refugee population, partly because immunization rates among over-45s are low.
Two cases are believed to have been caught in the US. Related to refugees here too? That we don’t know.
Werber said one woman and possibly a child appeared to have contracted measles while traveling in the United States.
Germany is having its migrant problems, that is for sure! Click here for our complete archive on Germany.
