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.

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.

Op-ed: While Europe pulls up the welcome mat for Muslim migrants, are we rolling it out?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

Paul Sperry is the author of several important books on Islam in America. http://www.amazon.com/Infiltration-Muslim-Subversives-Penetrated-Washington/dp/1595552480/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Reader Joanne sent this Op-ed by Paul Sperry at Investor’s Business Daily that includes this stunning information.  I had no idea that we had that many ‘Americans’ fighting with ISIS (and returning).

 

The British press is reporting that IS has threatened to release a huge wave of migrants from Libya across the Mediterranean disguised as refugees to cause chaos in Europe.

Who’s to say they aren’t setting a similar immigration bomb for America?

Authorities can’t even get a handle on homegrown IS jihadists who are already in America. Why would we risk adding so many potential jihadists from abroad to the already overloaded terrorist threat matrix?

The FBI director says he’s got open cases against IS suspects in every state but Alaska. More than 100 American Muslims have hooked up with the vicious terror group in Syria or Iraq, and at least a dozen fighters already have returned to America and may be forming sleeper cells to attack the homeland.

These suspects are hard for agents, who already are overstretched, to monitor. They’ve discarded their Islamic beards and garb and have blended into society. Analysts suspect some may have even infiltrated the military and government.

While America ushers in Islamic immigrants, Europe is pulling up the welcome mat.”

There is much more, read it all.

So, why can’t Congress fix this immediately by revoking passports of anyone who has left the country to join ISIS?

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.

In Sweden, job training program may be ISIS recruitment opportunity

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 23, 2015

Sigh!  Sweden (apparently using a Marie Harf counter-terrorism job training program) runs into a little problem!  The program is being shut down while authorities investigate if the unemployed ‘refugees’ were being recruited for ISIS.

Someone tell Obama! Takfiris believe in Islam strictly according to their interpretation of Muhammad’s and his companions’ actions and statements, and do not accept any deviation from their path; they reject any reform or change to their interpretation of religion as it was revealed in the time of the prophet. Photo: http://presstv.com/Detail/2015/02/13/397358/Norwegians-among-top-ISIL-cmdrs

From Press TV:

Sweden has cancelled a job training program for new immigrants following reports that the program coaches were recruiting people for Takfiri terrorist groups.

“We have been alerted by participants that coaches have tried to recruit them to terrorist organizations,” Patrik Svensson, spokesman for Sweden’s National Labor Agency, said on Friday.

Svensson added that the agency had informed Sweden’s security service about the suspicious activities in the training program.

According to the Swedish official, the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group might be behind the recruitment.

The program was initiated in 2010 to tackle the high unemployment rate among new immigrants in Sweden.

For more on what the word Takfiri means, see wikipedia here.  That is where we found the photo caption.

Czech Republic: Low turnout for pro-refugee rally

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 23, 2015

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.

From PraguePost.com:

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.

Malta: Illegal aliens create NGO to push for citizenship, benefits

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 23, 2015

We have a few posts backlogged from Europe, here is the first one this morning.  Longtime readers know that Malta’s troubles with illegal aliens/economic migrants flooding the tiny island nation for years now is one of our interests here at RRW.

Malta is important as it is experiencing the full force of the out-migration from Africa and it should be important to you (American readers) that the US State Department during the Bush years began to take some of Malta’s illegal aliens as ‘refugees’ to American towns and cities (see for instance this post from last September).  The practice—a perversion of international refugee law—has been continued by the Obama Administration.  The practice surely acts as a pull-factor for more illegals to attempt the Mediterranean crossing.

By the way, I didn’t do a weekly roundup last week, but want to mention here that readers from Malta were 5th in our top ten countries (out of 128 countries from which readers visited RRW).  For our newest readers, you might want to visit our February 13th round-up which contains tips on finding useful information among our over 6,000 posts.

Photo: Times of Malta

This is an interesting bit of news from the Times of Malta. Looks like the international community organizers are busy:

A new non-governmental organisation has been set up in Malta for Africans by Africans.

The organisation Migrants Association in Malta, is headed by Bushra Fuad, from Sudan.

Although grateful that Malta gave them the possibility of a second chance of life, many were anxious because they did not qualify as refugees or for humanitarian projection and even though they were allowed to stay on in Malta, their rights were basic.

The migrants stated many of them were already integrated with Maltese civil society and they had a permit to work, their paid taxes and national insurance but did not receive benefits when they had no work.

Moreover, they did not get financial support if they suffered an occupational accident.

Our extensive archive on Malta is here.  See especially this one about ISIS threatening to bring chaos to Europe by infiltrating the illegal alien flow toward Italy and Malta.

Mark Steyn: the choice is liberty or mass Muslim immigration

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2015

Thanks to Infidel Bloggers Alliance for highlighting an important column by Mark Steyn (author of “America Alone”) in which Steyn makes clear what we already know.

Steyn: “You have to choose between liberty and mass Muslim immigration.”

At the end of Steyn’s “Morning After” column (morning after the Islam-inspired terror attack in Copenhagen).  Emphasis is mine:

I said above that waiting inside multiculturalism’s Trojan horse was Islam. Not “Islamism”, or “radical Islam”, or “extremist Islam”, or “violent extremism” or “extremist radicalism” or “radicalist violentism” or anything else: just Islam. As I wrote yesterday:

This is usually the point at which we’re expected to do the not-all-Muslims-want-to-shoot-you-dead shtick. And that’s true. But Islam itself has no feeling whatsoever for the spirit of free speech.

The more Islamic a society gets, the less free speech it has – the less intellectual inquiry, artistic achievement, contrarian spirit. Most western Muslims are not willing themselves to open fire on synagogues or Lars Vilks, but they help maintain the shriveled definition of acceptable expression that helps license the fanatics of Copenhagen and Paris. Muslims in Europe, North America and Australia will pay lip service to “free speech”, and then promptly re-define it as excluding speech that “blasphemes” or “insults” their faith – which is to say them. Which is to say the great vulgar, brawling, free-for-all of free societies does not apply to them. So, when, say, France’s Muslim population reaches 20 per cent, you will need to have the support of three-quarters of the remaining 80 per cent to maintain even a bare popular majority in favor of free speech.

Is that likely? Or will there be more and more non-Muslims like the wretched quisling Welsh bishop, the Right Reverend Gregory Cameron, frantically arguing that if you hadn’t been so “offensive” you wouldn’t have caught their eye? Islam and free speech are, as His Miserable Grace implicitly recognizes, incompatible. And ultimately, therefore, you have to choose between liberty and mass Muslim immigration.

The reaction of David Cameron and Helle Thorning-Schmidt suggests they have made their choice. I think, somewhere deep down, they know it’s a recipe for slow societal suicide. And I wonder if, even deeper down, they also know that it won’t be that slow.

By the way, Obama’s (hug a Muslim) speech yesterday tells us that the man is in dreamland—that somehow the US is going to simply ‘melt’ all of our Muslim immigrants in some giant magical melting pot and we will all live happily ever after.

As a secularist, Obama has no understanding of the Islamic imperative that drives the ‘religion’ and is simply naive, or he is complicit in advancing the Islamic agenda in America.  Which is it?

New readers:  Please read ‘Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam?’   Get it here.

ISIS could bring pandemonium to Southern Europe with fighters disguised as refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2015

The ‘Invasion of Europe’ is hastening….

I had this story almost ready to post yesterday, when my internet connection dropped, so surely you have seen the news by now.  LOL! So what has taken ISIS and the media so long to figure out what we have been writing about for weeks, months!

And, don’t forget that Obama’s girls (the “humanitarian Vulcans”)—Hillary, Susan Rice, and Samantha Power—are largely responsible (along with the UN) for the now failed state of Libya because they were the primary cheering squad involved in the get-Muammar Qaddafi movement when Obama was his usual indecisive self, see our 2011 post with links for more information.  So much for the ‘brilliant’ Ms. Power’s “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine.

Here is how we concluded that 2011 post:

Protect!  It would be so ironic if  one of Obama’s national security advisers, Samantha Power, and her scheme (with George Soros) called the “Responsibility or Right to Protect” would destroy far more lives then it saved.  But, I guess that’s what happens when we put immature ideologues and community organizers together in the White House.

From Fox News:

ISIS is planning a campaign to dominate Libya before sending fighters to southern Europe disguised as illegal migrants to wage more terror there, according to a published report.

ISIS taking control in Libya (only a little over 200 miles to the “Crusader states.”) http://yalibnan.com/2014/11/19/isis-takes-control-of-a-libyan-city-report/

The Daily Telegraph, citing a British anti-terror group that claims to have seen letters written by the group’s supporters, said that ISIS hopes to use militiamen from its current strongholds in Syria and Iraq to overrun Libya before embarking on a campaign targeting both Europe’s mainland as well as maritime shipping.

The letter is written by an ISIS propagandist using the name Abu Arhim al-Libim. He describes Libya, which has descended into chaos in the wake of the 2011 overthrow of Muammar Qaddafi, as having “immense potential” for the jihadists.

“It has a long coast and looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat,” the man writes. He also points out that the country is replete with weapons, many of them seized from Qaddafi’s forces by rebels as the regime collapsed.

In describing the possibilities of attacking Europe, al-Libim discusses the number of ships brining migrants across the Mediterranean Sea illegally, then says “If this was even partially exploited and developed strategically, pandemonium could be wrought in the southern European states and it is even possible that there could be a closure of shipping lines and targeting of Crusader ships and tankers.”

Interesting that here is that word Crusader again.  Is ISIS using Obama lingo.  Is Obama helping them with their talking points!

Stop US refugee resettlement from Malta!

Again!!!  If you are in America and thinking this is Europe’s problem, never forget that the US State Department is bringing illegal aliens who arrive on Malta (a Crusader state!) to the US as refugees for your home towns!

Northern Ireland official: We will take some Syrians even if England is stalling

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 17, 2015

This story is a few weeks old, so who knows what the latest is, but we will post it to keep our archives on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ comprehensive and as complete as possible.  Gee, I hope they have an agency better than our FBI to screen the Sunni Muslims which make up the majority of the UN program’s flow.  (Our FBI says they can’t be screened!)

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness says it would send an important message! What, that No. Ireland is foolish?

From the Belfast Telegraph:

The Stormont Executive has approached the Home Office over the potential of resettling a number of Syrian refugees in Northern Ireland, Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness has told the Assembly.

Mr McGuinness said he felt the region should “respond positively” to a call from the United Nations refugee agency – UNHCR – to help some of the more than three million displaced as a consequence of Syria’s bloody internal conflict.

The UK Government has not signed up to the UN programme but has accommodated around 100 refugees under its own Vulnerable Persons Relocation initiative.

Mr McGuinness noted that other European nations were making a much greater contribution to the resettlement efforts through the UN scheme.

He said despite the UK’s government stance he believed Northern Ireland should be allowed to relocate a number of refugees.

Well, they could say they only want ‘religious minorities/Christians’ as Canada has said.  Then there shouldn’t be as big a problem with screening or of them assimilating!
