Thank goodness we are getting away from Europe...

This could be the end of Europe if it goes on.

Italy threatens to deny entry to foreign ships to force migration action

Italy could stop foreign ships from docking in its ports in a bid to force the European Commission to do something about the large numbers of migrants arriving on its shores, press agency ANSA reported Wednesday.

According to the report, which cited unnamed sources, Italy’s ambassador to the EU Maurizio Massari will tell European migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos that Italy needs help and could deny docking rights to ships that have rescued migrants that are flying non-Italian flags. More than 10,000 asylum seekers arrived in the country between Saturday and Tuesday, and another 12,000 have arrived in the past 48 hours.

The move could affect the work of NGOs and non-Italian merchant ships performing rescue operations in the Mediterranean, but might not be allowed under Italian and EU law.

About time they stop the smuggler-colluding NGO taxi service.

Including the Italian flagged ships.

It really isn't "rescue" anymore when boats are deliberately sunk on the 12 mile limit and calls for help are placed from there or are coordinated beforehand with the NGO ferry services.

But all they do is talk. They just don't actually do anything. It's summer- watch the numbers climb.

The details buried in the story I saw was that Italy is only going hat in hand to ask permission from the EU to do this. It's evidently far from a reality. Unless Italy goes rogue.

When 11,000 entrants make their way in on the free NGO ferry and Italian ship service in four days, this doesn't sent alarm bells ringing anywhere in Brussells? How are numbers like this manageable?

It's probably just Italian campaign rhetoric because there's an election coming up. They have to know the EU won't approve it. Against all evidence at the coal face, the EU are still insisting on pretending this is about asylum.

A story a few days ago told of the two Nigerian crime syndicates that have set up shop in Italy to run this trafficking scheme (as well as other crime gambits like drugs they are bringing in this way). The Nigerian syndicate winner that managed to beat out the other one has teamed up with the Mafia on this.

They are using this route for drugs, and most especially it's now the primary route for women and children being brought in to be used in growing prostitution sex slave rings.

So the fluffy NGOs are picking up women and children and taking them to Italy to be handed off to the Nigerian and Mafia gangs for their futures as sex slaves.

Yet the EU pretends this is only about asylum?? The shopping list of African countries represented by these hundreds of thousands of entrants this year are all countries where these crime syndicates are active in sex slave rings, fraud and drugs.

Where is Interpol? It baffles.

Asylum from a failed continent with a side of the the Middle East.

Plenty more in the queue.
Fill up a stable state(s) with failed people with no skills, little education, different languages, questionable morality, questionable cultures, questionable criminality (terrorists) and not one iota of a desire to integrate.
Merkel's warped theory is pushing the EU because Germany is oh so powerful. To what future purpose nobody really knows.
These are all people who would not fight for their own country, their own freedom, their own society. Can you say "Geronimo"? Can you say "Islamic Invasion"? Both concepts are fully in play.

When you are split on the concepts of bringing them in for asylum and keep them out because they are not asylum seekers in the stark reality of real life and just dither......and dither and dither...you are doomed and continue to this date and tomorrow...to compound that doom. Can you say "Critical Mass"?

An app has been launched by a group of Parisians which sends out live alerts regarding crimes such as violence or sexual assaults in notorious no-go zones. The app’s description on the Google Play store says: “Whether you are staying in an unknown location, looking for a safe place to live, on your way to a specific location then No-Go Zone allows you to reduce any risk of aggression, theft, harassment or incivility.”

The app lets you know how close you are to danger spots and what to look out for – such as pickpockets near the Eiffel Tower. Users can also receive live updates of reports filed by other users over the previous days and weeks relating to incidents of aggression and sexual harassment.

One Parisian user of the app said in a review: “Given the current degradation, it is better to have this app…unfortunately". “It is an indispensable application for anyone who thinks that the cultural “enrichment” of non-natives is not compatible with our way of life,” says another.

Good luck with that.....


Austria has announced it is ready to use soldiers and tanks to stop migrants crossing its border with Italy, as Brussels urged Europe to help Italian authorities manage an “unprecedented” arrival of people from north Africa.

Austrian defence minister Hans Peter Doskozil announced that four Pandur armoured personnel carriers had been sent to the Tyrol region and 750 troops were on standby. Speaking to the Kronen Zeitung, Doskozil said troops on the Brenner pass would be “indispensable” if large numbers of people continued to arrive in Italy from the central Mediterranean. He told the popular daily newspaper that border controls on the busy Alpine pass would be reintroduced very soon, although his office said no timetable for the measures was fixed.....

Frans Timmermans, a European commission vice-president, said Italy’s call for solidarity was completely justified and urged other EU member states to meet their promises of housing refugees in Italy under an EU relocation scheme. “It would make a world of difference if member states would just do what they agreed before.”

He was clear that Brexit did not exempt the UK from taking part in a new refugee relocation scheme, as the commission announced a plan to bring asylum seekers from Libya, Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan to Europe. “This is an exercise we need to do at a European level and I count on solidarity from all member states including the United Kingdom.”.......

Today I read in the press that 7 out of 10 'migrants' were not refugees.

Only 7 out of 10? You just have to look at the countries from which these migrants come to see that refugees are a minority. Syria, we know there's a war going on there, and parts of Iraq and affected too - we get that. But what's going on in Ethiopia today that pushed people to leave for Europe? Have a look at this BBC article about what's happening in Eritrea, for example:
Many thousands of Eritreans have fled the country for Europe in search for a better life. A multinational initiative is now trying to stem the flow of migrants to Europe by training refugees and giving them jobs in neighbouring Ethiopia.
"The reason for fleeing from our country is because the Eritrean government keeps on forcing us to join the national service and we are wanted in our homeland.
"We walked through the bushes hiding not to be seen by the Eritrean soldiers and we were able to escape," says Salama, the more talkative of the two.
In other words, they're draft dodgers, fleeing the requirement to fight for their country. OK, that's probably a bit harsh - who wants to fight in a a civil war? - but I don't think the definition of "refugee" covers people who aren't in clear danger of harm.

I have first hand knowledge of a case whereby a young Eritrean male came to the UK. His asylum claim was rejected. He stayed here and renewed his claim on the basis that if he was now returned to Eritrea he would be liable for National Service. He went for a Judicial Review. The Home Office gave him leave to stay indefinitely and his application for JR was then withdrawn.
That is just one case of many.

Surprise surprise. And funnily enough not a word about the sexual assaults and rapes in Europe's main stream media.

Why is there such a high proportion of young, healthy men ? Where are their Mothers, sisters, wives and kids ? Have they left them to be bombed and gassed ?

Am I being cynically suspicious ?

I worked with several real refugees over the years and the one thing that they had in common was that they would have never went on holiday to the country they escaped from . Unlike most of the recent refugees who travel back to the country they escaped from "ANNUALLY ", As soon as they have new papers.
Once a refugee returns to the country they escaped they should not be allowed to return to the refuge country . This would allow more room for genuine refugees to get temporary safety while others sort out their countries mess for them.

The Allies saved Europe's ass twice in the last century from Germany and set it and Germany back on a path to prosperity and happiness.

Now another German has set it on another course to ruin for the third time ably assisted by the EU farce.
