Migrant Problems Still Threaten Europe - August 21st 2016, 10:27 AM

Article link:

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/8...roblems-europe

And some key bullet points/excerpts:
  • August 4, for instance, hundreds of migrants, chiefly from Eritrea, Ethiopia and the Sudan (not Syria) sought to storm the crossing in their attempts to make it to Northern Europe
  • Italy has already endured several alarming scenes of disorder and protest resulting from the pressure of accepting increasing illegal migrants.
  • On May 7, violent attempts by "open borders" activists took place, aimed at forcing open the frontier between Italy and Austria.
  • On May 21, various groups in Rome organized mass demonstrations against Italy's "invasion" by migrants.
  • After the widely derided imposition by the Prime Minister of Hungary of a razor-wire border fence on his country's southern frontier, other nations nearby, that were subjected to migrant pressure, soon followed suit.
  • Sea crossings from Africa into Italy, which initially targeted the small Italian island of Lampedusa, had begun in 1996.
  • Since then, they have magnified in number year on year, considerably aided between 2013-2014 by the Mare Nostrum program of the Italian navy, which picked up stranded vessels and brought their occupants to Italy, rather than returning migrants to their countries of origin. This program was then superseded by Operation Triton, run by the European Union's border agency, Frontex.
  • Profits in the people-smuggling business often flow to terrorist-backed gangs operating in Italy. The numbers drowning in the Mediterranean continue to mount.
  • During four days in July alone, 10,000 illegally crossed by sea into Italy. As in 2015, the vast majority looking for "asylum seeker" status in Europe are military-aged Muslim males seeking eventual European citizenship.
  • The picture drawn by the present migration into Europe may fundamentally undermine the "Refugees Welcome" narrative that dominated news reports last year, but the continent-wide economic ramifications of its effects on a country such as Italy, already subject to considerable political tumult, should not be underestimated.
Almost every hyperlink in blue works, although text colors are malfunctioning for me on TH at the moment. The nested links I found more interesting are the following:
All of these illustrate a trend of often overlooked left-wing extremism. I just think it's a good idea for people to know these things, because I feel like they are under-reported. I have never seen such things reported on British TV. I don't care how emotional, angry, or unstable these people are, and I don't care about whatever they think they're fighting for. None of this is "ok" or excusable.

.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I know it wasn't the main reason, but this was part of why the UK voted to leave the EU. #brexit
