Are NGO “rescue” ships in the Mediterranean helping to destabilize Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2016

Yes, say investigators whose information is pretty persuasive. They say Americans are involved too.

Invasion of Europe news…..

phoenix-rescue-in-2015

Rescued off the coast of Libya in 2015 with the help of MOAS’ Phoenix. http://mashable.com/2015/08/05/migrants-mediterranean-boat-disaster/#pJaJI9ynZkqA

 

A few days ago, an American reader sent me a story about the supposedly non-profit groups that have furnished rescue ships operating in the Mediterranean.  I didn’t have time to look at it carefully (and I knew I had previously written about one such ship, here), but when a longtime reader from Malta sent me more links yesterday, I spent a little time just now going over reports.

The allegations are that the ‘non-profit’ ships may be working in concert with human traffickers in Libya and that they are not simply picking up (mostly economic) migrants in European waters, but meeting the Africans and Middle Easterners who want to get to Europe in the waters right off Libya.  In such locations any foundering vessel would logically be returned to the African coast, the shortest distance by far, but are intercepted and taken all the way to Italy.

(By the way, any mention of Libya gets my blood boiling because we know it is now a gateway for invaders of Europe thanks to Hillary Clinton—a story I followed from its outset!)

Here is one story on the allegations against these ‘non-profits.’

The Way:

For two months, GEFIRA using marinetraffic.com have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from data.unhcr.org.

Gerira [GEFIRA?] have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we have witnessed a massive scam of illegal human trafficting.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya.

The 15 ships GEFIRA observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 mile away from the rescue spot.

The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms, Sea-Watch.org, Sea-Eye and Life Boat.

Go here to see a video explanation of this investigation.

And, then learn more about the  Louisiana-born owner of one ship we told you about in February 2015 (photo at right). The last line of the newest story is this:

One cannot help but wonder whether the MOAS people are honest saviours or they are on a mission to destabilise Europe even further.

From GEFIRA.org:

MOAS stands for Migrant Offshore Aid Station. It is a Malta-based non-governmental organisation, which set itself the task of patrolling the Mediterranean and rescuing people in high seas, lifting them up from dinghies, rafts and boats onto the Phoenix, the MOAS-owned trawler, a vessel complete with drones for scanning the waters, and ferrying migrants from places several miles off the Libyan shore to Sicily. The organisation is run by Chris Catrambone (35) and his wife Regina.

Continue reading here.

And, by the way, in February of this year, we reported that the ‘Phoenix’ was headed to Asia to rescue Muslim Rohingya, but I don’t know if that ever happened. (I’m always surprised by how much information is here at RRW that I’ve forgotten about!)

Even if the ‘rescue’ ships are doing nothing illegal, their very presence simply encourages more migrants to attempt sea crossings.

Turkey threatens to unleash millions of Syrian Muslims on Europe (again)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

The EU is between a rock and a hard place!

Remember Turkey is not our friend (Obama’s, but not ours)!

 

screenshot-71

Unrelated (sort of) to this story, I wanted you to see this data from the US State Department’s Refugee Processing Center because I want you to know that the three top countries through which we process refugees to the US are Kenya, TURKEY and Jordan. All three are processing in mostly Muslim refugees. Data for the month of October only. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B84u_jF_w2FMSTd4cUNwTXhpaUE/view

 

From the Irish Times:

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned the European Union that his country may wave through up to three million migrants to Europe as Ankara reacted furiously to Thursday’s vote in the European Parliament calling on Turkey’s accession negotiations to be frozen.

Mr Erdogan said that Turkey could row back on the migrant pact signed with the EU in March, which has dramatically reduced the number of refugees entering the EU through Turkey.

President Barack Obama, right, is greeted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as German Chancellor Angela Merkel is seen in background, after posing for a family photo at the G-20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015. U.S. President Barack Obama pledged Sunday to redouble U.S. efforts to eliminate the Islamic State group and end the Syrian civil war that has fueled its rise, denouncing the extremist group's horrifying terror spree in Paris as "an attack on the civilized world." (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)

Three kindred spirits changing the world order, undermining Western Civilization: President Barack Obama, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel

As a condition of that deal, the EU promised to accelerate Turkey’s accession talks and consider granting visa-free access to Turkish citizens to Europe.

But concerns about the Turkish government’s increasingly authoritarian stance, as it clamps down on dissenters following July’s failed coup, has sparked calls for Turkey’s accession talks to be suspended.

Speaking in Istanbul on Friday, the Turkish president accused the EU of “betraying its promises”.

“If you go any further, these border gates will be opened,” he said, describing the parliament vote as a “dry threat”.

If Turkey opens its gates, I predict Erdogan should expect the so-called ‘anti-immigration’ parties to win big! So, his threat, if carried out will not help his case.

Elections are looming in a number of EU countries next year, including France, Germany and the Netherlands, with anti-immigration parties expected to poll strongly.

As a result, incumbent governments are unlikely to want to commit to granting 78 million Turkish people visa-free access to Europe.

On the Refugee Processing Center where the US State Department keeps the data on who is coming in to the country through the RAP, we have found that important parts of the site are unavailable again and we hope it is only a Thanksgiving weekend anomaly. Notice how the new site has become an advocacy-oriented site.  This is the sort of thing a new Secretary of State must know about and be ready to change!

German court: Syrian ‘refugees’ may not be refugees by definition

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

Just yesterday I told you about how the Open Borders Left has in recent years been attempting to broaden the legal definition of refugee to include anyone running from almost anything!

Refugees must prove they will be PERSECUTED if returned home.

Now, we see a German court attempting to reestablish the real definition of what constitutes a legal right to ask for asylum (now that Germany is completely overwhelmed with a migrant flow from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East and from Africa).

uta-strzyz

Uh-oh for judge Uta Strzyz! Does Germany have the equivalent of the Southern Poverty Law Center, if so, is she ready for the “hater” label?

Pay attention to one extremely important difference between Germany and the United States when it comes to ‘refugees.’

Syrians will be in Germany on a TEMPORARY BASIS while we take Syrians PERMANENTLY. Once admitted to the US they do not go home (well, they might for vacation, but that is another story)!  So the next time some refugee-pusher guilt-trips you by telling you that Germany is doing so much more, remind them of this fact.

From Deutsche Welle (Merely fleeing Syria does not mean one faces persecution there, the court said!):

Refugees from the Syrian conflict may not be entitled to automatic protection in Germany anymore, after a higher court in the northern city of Schleswig ruled that they could not be automatically defined as refugees under the United Nations convention.

Instead, the judge said Syrians who come to Germany should only be offered “subsidiary protection” – a designation under European law that means they are only entitled to stay in Germany one year, rather than three, and are not allowed to bring their families with them.

The key question was whether the refugees face political persecution. “There are no indications that the Syrian state puts everyone under general suspicion of belonging to the opposition,” judge Uta Strzyz told the court on Wednesday.

The issue has dogged Germany’s legal system for several months. In fall 2015, Syrians received full refugee status as defined by the 1951 UN Refugee Convention, but the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) changed its policy in March 2016, allowing them only subsidiary protection.

We should all be Geert Wilders, use your free speech while you have it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2016

“Members of the court, you are passing judgment on the future of the Netherlands.”

Geert Wilders

geert-wilders

Wilders before the court!

Every one of you should take a few minutes and read Dutch leader Geert Wilders’ final statement to the court that is seeking to convict him on hate speech charges.  I’ve snipped a bit of it below.

In the US we still have our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech because the founders understood that being able to freely speak about vital issues facing the country was the best way to keep chaos and violent conflict from tearing the country apart.

Granted there are far left organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center who are seeking to silence you.  Your response should be to speak up even more forcefully. (See SPLC will have a DC press conference this week, they use their free speech!)

Every one of you who is concerned about immigration/refugees where you live and is working to expose problems must speak up! You MUST write a website, a blog, letters to the editor, a facebook page, or hold public meetings to get the information out while you can! LOL! You need to counter the fake news from the likes of CNN!  And, if thousands of you are publishing your research and opinions, they can’t stop us all!

Sorry for the harangue!

Here is Wilders (imagine living like he does, under 24 hour guard, because people want to kill you for what you say!):

When I decided to address you here today, by making a final statement in this trial against freedom of speech, many people reacted by telling me it is useless. That you, the court, have already written the sentencing verdict a while ago. That everything indicates that you have already convicted me. And perhaps that is true. Nevertheless, here I am. Because I never give up. And I have a message for you and the Netherlands.

For centuries, the Netherlands are a symbol of freedom.

When one says Netherlands, one says freedom. And that is also true, perhaps especially, for those who have a different opinion than the establishment, the opposition. And our most important freedom is freedom of speech.

[….]

So, do not forget that, when you judge me, you are not just passing judgment on a single man, but on millions of men and women in the Netherlands. You are judging millions of people. People who agree with me. People who will not understand a conviction. People who want their country back, who are sick and tired of not being listened to, who cherish freedom of expression.

Members of the court, you are passing judgment on the future of the Netherlands. And I tell you: if you convict me, you will convict half of the Netherlands. And many Dutch will lose their last bit of trust in the rule of law.

Coming by 2019! Sweden will sink under this load as family reunification ramps up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

Sweden is my guess for the first European country to completely implode with the burden of needy Middle Eastern and African refugees (it has been my choice for years).  Although, I admit, Germany (larger and wealthier) is working hard to catch up with Sweden.

Pay attention to this ‘family reunification’ issue because it is going to impact your American town—you will see it in a year or two in the newly selected resettlement sites.***

Just as your town realizes you can’t handle the numbers coming, you will be called mean-spirited and worse if you try to deny the ‘family’ members the ‘right’ to join those who arrived in the first wave.

Here is the story this morning at Speisa (New Gigantic Migration Shock):

SWEDEN — “It’s a level we’ve never seen before,” said the Moderates’ migration policy spokesperson Johan Forssell when he told Aftonbladet that over 300,000 cases of family reunifications are expected by 2019. The record figures come from the Migration Board’s forecast, according to Aftonbladet.

The huge migration wave last year could be repeated and almost doubled when over 300,000 family members are expected to arrive up to the year 2019.

When Aftonbladet talks with Johan Forssell, he says it is a large volume to handle.

It’s a level we’ve never seen before. Until 2019, it is about 317,000 cases. This will have a major impact on the issues of housing, jobs, schools, health care. It underlines that we need to have long-term and sustainable immigration policies, says Forsell.

***These are the locations we have identified so far that have been targeted by the US Dept. of State as new resettlement sites.  We hear there are 47 of them (the remainder are still secret).

This is the largest number in one year perhaps since the program began in 1980. They must get these offices open because a) Obama has proposed astronomical numbers for FY17, b) because once opened, offices are hard to close, and c) they want to get as many open and running before a possible Donald Trump Administration takes office in January.

Once the first batches are resettled the contractors go to work bringing in the family members. They will vilify you if you try to stop the “reunification.”

Does your Imam have a bushy beard? German story informative

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

Occasionally Reuters does us a good service, and they have with this story from Germany.  It is about how many Syrian refugees are not devout Muslims (Reuters uses the word conservative) but are being lured into extremist—Salafist or Wahhabi—mosques that make them uncomfortable.

From The Independent:

Hani Salam escaped civil war in Syria and survived the journey from Egypt to Europe. But when he saw men with bushy long beards at a mosque near his current home in Cologne last November, he was worried.

merkel-706481

Merkel opened a can of worms when she permitted hundreds of thousands of refugees from Muslim countries to come to Germany. Read this story and see that the German government is in the business of training ‘moderate’ Imams. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/germany-syrian-refugees-islam-religion-mosques-too-conservative-strict-a7384146.html

The men’s appearance reminded him of Jaish al-Islam, the Islamist rebels who took over his hometown near Damascus, said Salam, 36, who wears a moustache but no beard. One of them told Salam that “good Muslims grow beards, not moustaches,” he recalled – a centuries-old idea that he dismisses.

“Everything about this mosque made me feel uneasy,” he said.

Syrians in Germany say many of the country’s Arab mosques are more conservative than those at home.

Over two months, a dozen Syrians in six places of worship in three cities told Reuters they were uncomfortable with very conservative messages in Arabic-speaking mosques. People have criticised the way the newcomers dress and practise their religion, they said. Some insisted the Koran be interpreted word-for-word.

[….]

The intelligence agency has advised local authorities against housing asylum-seekers near Salafist or Wahhabi mosques.

Continue reading about the different mosques German authorities are attempting to cope with.  And, by the way, the words Salafist and Wahhabi are very definitive and I wonder why we don’t see those words used much in the American press.

What is happening in your American town? What sort of mosque do you have in your neighborhood? And, in what direction will that mosque push the new refugees arriving daily which are placed in the vicinity of a mosque by Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (among others). Do they even know what they are doing?

Trump should have mentioned Mama Merkel’s mess as migrants sue German government

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

German Chancellor Angela Merkel flung Germany’s gates open wide over a year ago and the world poured in.

hillary-and-merkel-laugh

Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel must never be permitted to serve together as leaders of two great world powers!

With tens of thousands seeking asylum (permanent refugee status), the German government gave them a temporary status until their claims could be processed.  That temporary status came with a stipulation that they could not bring their extended family members until granted permanent asylum.

Since then, thousands of refugees have successfully sued using international law.

Beware America!  This is why protecting our national sovereignty is so important!  We cannot permit any treaties or agreements that would allow foreign courts to dictate immigration/refugee policy here (but we may be doing that already!).

What is happening to Germany is why we need to revisit any such agreements if Donald Trump is elected President in a few short weeks.

Here is the news that should be concerning for all Western nations who wish to remain free.

More than 17,000 refugees have complained against the partial asylum status, known as subsidiary protection, offered by the German Government.

On arrival in Germany refugees are given the form of asylum from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).

But the partial status which means they are safe from being deported, includes a two year ban on families coming to join them.

In the first eight months of this year 90 per cent of refugees who challenged the subsidiary protection status won their case and were granted full rights under the Geneva Refugee Convention.

UK paying “refugees” to go home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 17, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

theresa-may

New UK Prime Minister Theresa May: In September she told the UN that the UK would be fortifying its borders.

The British government is paying around $2,400 (in US dollars) for migrants to leave the British Isles and return home.  Needless to say the project is causing a stir now that it is out in the open.

The headline uses the word “refugee” but in fact these are people who are mostly asylum seekers who have not yet been granted asylum and are thus not technically refugees, but, as the article says, they are illegal migrants.

Critics say the plan will encourage more illegal entry because it is an enticement to try to get in (I doubt $2,400 is much of an enticement).

And, I am still a believer in setting up a repatriation fund here in the US because I think it will be less costly in the long run (by not putting them on welfare) and I believe there are legal refugees who either came as asylum seekers or were placed in your cities by the US State Department who are profoundly unhappy and want to go home.  We should help them do so.

The story is at Press TV (Iranian TV) so I found the comments there informative (be sure to check those out). Several readers said if the UK stopped meddling in civil wars in Syria and elsewhere, the UK wouldn’t have the problem. Huh?  So I’m all for trying it!  Let the UK (and the US) stay out of the Middle East, let the Middle East take care of the Middle East! And we can take care of our countries first (America First) and let them kill each other without our help!

From Press TV:

The government of British Prime Minister Theresa May offers refugees £2000 to get them to leave the country, as it’s under mounting pressure to tackle the refugee crisis, a new report says.

The government confirmed that it has been offering £2,000 of taxpayers’ cash to “assist” return payments to each refugee, who accepts to leaves the UK, The Express reported Saturday.

The Home office said a total of 529 people have been paid the money since the government implemented the plan in January this year. It said the money is paid to help those returning to “find somewhere to live, find a job or start a business in their home country.”

According to figures, the UK faces the highest asylum claims since 2004, Home Office officials said.

Continue reading here.

By the way, clearly such a strategy comes with rules—like they can’t come back without some serious penalty!

Germany: Another Syrian refugee arrested for planning terror attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 10, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

German police arrested a Syrian refugee who had been granted asylum (that means they had screened him and approved him) after a two day manhunt late yesterday. So much for vetting Syrians!

We do not want to be Europe!

merkel-and-hillary

Don’t forget! When Hillary was asked who is the world leader she most admires, she answered German Chancellor Angela Merkel who has allowed a million Middle Eastern and African migrants to invade Germany.

In last night’s debate, it is too bad ‘The Donald’ didn’t mention how the US would be following in Mama Merkel’s foot steps if we elect Hillary as Prez. (But then it’s too easy for us to ‘monday morning quarterback.’)

Here is one of many news accounts about the latest Islamic terror plot in Germany, this one at ABC News:

German police arrested early Monday a Syrian man who is suspected of preparing a bomb attack, following a nearly two-day manhunt.

Jaber Albakr, a 22-year-old who had been granted asylum in Germany, was arrested in the eastern city of Leipzig, police in Saxony state said. Leipzig is around 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Chemnitz, where he had evaded authorities on Saturday and where authorities found explosives.

Police were informed that fellow Syrians were holding the suspect at an apartment in Leipzig, and “immediately went there and arrested him,” Saxony police spokesman Tom Bernhardt said.

[….]

German media have reported that Albakr is believed to be connected to Islamic extremist groups, but Saxony police have not commented on his possible motive or the bomb plot’s target.

The explosives were destroyed Saturday in a controlled detonation by bomb squad experts in a pit dug outside the five-story apartment building because they were considered too dangerous to transport.

In July, two attacks carried out by asylum seekers and claimed by the Islamic State group, in which multiple people were injured and the assailants were killed, put Germany on edge — along with two other attacks unrelated to Islamic extremism, including a deadly mall shooting in Munich.

Authorities say Albakr came to Germany in the flood of 890,000 migrants who entered the country in 2015 and had been granted asylum.

Again, dear readers, if he was granted asylum he went through a vetting process and was found to be a stellar candidate to become a NEW German!

Trump’s people should run ads showing the horror show going on in Europe and say that Hillary wants to open the floodgates here too!
