What Man Is A Man

Greek Border Violence Bulent Kilic AFP

Once again Europe is dealing with violence created by Syrian refugees. These refugees, which are mostly young men, have the courage and strength to rip babies from mothers to use as projectiles at police officers and to push rail cars into border fences. They have also laid children on train tracks and attacked journalists and aid workers that are trying to help their cause. Yet, many, from Western leaders to supposed human rights groups, do not mention these acts of violence by these refugees, they merely justify their actions by stating that the ‘migrants’ only want peace and freedom and to live in safety. That does not happen when one’s reaction to law and order is violence. There has been no headlines speaking about how these ‘poor, desperate refugees’ have spent years trying to do things inside the existing system within the law and in a peaceful manner. That implies that those stories do not exist. If you see stories about those families that are not invading Europe but merely existing in refugee camps, you see Syrian men sitting in their pity and whining while it is their wives and children that are finding some way to survive and provide for the family. This seems to be more common than not among Syrian men.

In addition to such poor behavior by Syrian men running away from the issues in their own country, instead of staying home and putting their house in order; there is also knowledge that several suspected terrorists have entered Europe as ‘poor Syrian refugees’ looking for peace and better lives!
Yet, they actually attack Greek civilians that attempt to show them compassion and generosity by giving them food. It would seem that if the Public Affairs Offices of the EU and NATO wanted to garner public support in their continued illegal ‘rebellion’ in Syria, then they should be flooding the news with reports of how peaceful and controlled and behaved these individuals are; however, we do not see these reports, the best we get is ‘how poorly the local peace officers have treated’ these creatures.

As numbers and tensions increase at the closed gateway to the Balkan refugee route the UNHCR’s coordinator, Vincent Cochetel, discussed the crisis in March.
“They do not understand that they can no longer move onward, that they have to queue; they have to go through the relocation process – for those eligible for relocation and it is not everybody. So, there is a lot of frustration building up, which may lead to acts of violence,” said Cochetel.

What is not understandable and completely lacking logic and common sense that this is something they do not understand. How is it that anyone that supposedly is so educated and from the professional middle-class, as we are repeatedly assured ALL the refugees are, do not understand that there are rules and laws and procedures to handle these situations properly and orderly?

It is equally absurd that groups from the UN to MSF (Doctors Without Borders) still want Greece to shoulder the burden of taking care of these ‘refugees’. Last year the EU agreed to relocate ‘refugees’ from Greece among the other 28 member states. However, “…despite commitments to relocate 66,400 refugees from Greece, states have so far pledged only 1,539 spaces, and only 325 actual relocations have occurred,” according to UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards. It appears that instead of keeping their end of the agreement the EU has decided to pawn their disaster off on Turkey by paying them to take back ‘refugees’ to their country.

What the EU should be doing to take care of the issue is to stop being involved in Syrian regime change for profit! Secondly, they should be fast tracking temporary status and relocation to women with children and then the elderly and sick or injured. No healthy male between the ages of 16 and 55 should be allowed to even be considered for refugee status until there are none of the above mentioned groups in danger. These men need to be returned to their country to fight for their own nation and to do their proper duty to their nation, their family, their clan/tribe.

Refugee Crysis Is A Positive

Earlier this month, speaking about the refugee crisis, the Economic Commissioner stated, “There will be an impact on growth that is weak but positive for the EU as a whole, and that will increase GDP by 0.2 to 0.3 percent by 2017.” I would disagree with that statement for a number of reasons. The first of which is that Italy and Greece have been downing in the expense of taking in the refugees for the last 4 years without any real support from the rest of the EU.

Italy has been in recession for the last 6 years and suffers from between 13 and 20 per cent unemployment numbers depending on which source you cite. The unemployment for the youth are up to 43 per cent, yet, that number is blatantly false in that most of the ‘refugees’ landing in Italy are young single men.

So what is the cost to Italy, whom has decided that illegal immigration is no longer illegal, thus you have to place more blame on Italy than the European Union in their case, but the numbers will affect all of Europe. In the ‘welcome centers’ the ‘refugees’ get free board and lodging, mobile phones and €3 per day in pocket money. If this were not enough, they are also provided with free lessons for Italian, driving and job training, like ice cream making.

So what are the real numbers for the Italian tax payer…. €35 per day directly to the ‘refugee’ or roughly €13000 per year per ‘refugee’ in total cost. Some numbers place the number of ‘refugees’ entering Italy in the first half of 2015 was 54,000, thus €702,000,000; using just this number the ‘refugees’ has cost Italy €2,808,000,000 over the past 4 years. Now, however, the EU has set up a relocation ‘solution’ to ease Italy’s burden….the plan is to relocate a mere 40,000 ‘refugees’ over 2 years. Italy will be paid €6000 per head and the receiving state will receive €500 each. As of October 90 ‘refugees’ have been relocated!

Illegal Migrant Entry Numbers(29JUNE2015)

Even if the 40,000 target number is reached in 2 years, it would take 8 and half years to relocate just the number of ‘refugees’ that landed in Italy in 2014 and that number is expected to be the same in 2015. Right now Italy is housing 99,000 ‘refugees’ at a cost of €1.16billion ($1.32B) for this year.

Of the 61,545 asylum requests received through Oct. 9, 2015, 46,490 have been examined and just over half were rejected, the Interior Ministry study said. The EU is helping to fund the deportation of those ‘refugees’ that are rejected, but is also requesting that Italy speed up and increase their deportation.
The bottom line is that the Economic Commissioner does not have ALL the numbers in his equation. And even if there were some miracle and these ‘refugees’ did a 1 day integration into host countries and start contributing to the GDP it would still take years to cover the initial costs that is still in the red. And at the proposed impact of less than a half of a per cent positive impact to the countries of the European Union it would take the ‘refugees’, their children, their grandchildren, their great-grandchildren and probably even their great-grandchildren to get to a point where the costs break even. And these numbers did not take into account the impact of this crisis on non-EU states that are invaded by the ‘refugees’ on their way to the European Paradise!
This is the second of three articles about the refugee crisis of Europe.

Refugee Crysis In Safe Haven

The world economy is weak. The job market is more famine than feast. And Europe is facing an unending influx of migrants. Over the last 4 to 6 years Italy and Greece have been crying, begging, pleading for help in dealing with an overwhelming invasion of illegal immigrants. They are being called refugees, but a large majority are not true refugees from the Western bombed nations of Libya and Syria, they are simply opportunists from Central Africa and Central Asia that are taking advantage of the plight of displaced civilians in the aforementioned countries. They are freely flooding into Europe by any and all means possible. They come with nothing, thus they are in need of everything for the countries that are stuck taking them in. They are creating an unbearable debt on the smaller and weaker countries of Europe without any intent of ever returning anything of value to those countries.

migrant route 1Not a single one of these refugees is doing anything the legal or proper or right way; yet, they are all reaping all the benefits denied those that try to do things properly and legally. The burden on the people of Europe via loss of benefits and increased taxes to cover the costs is rude and insulting.

Do not get me wrong, I have all the sympathy in the world for REAL refugees, the ones that have no home left cause NATO bombed it off the map, the ones that have no village cause it has been leveled by the Western backed ‘moderate rebels’. But, I cannot believe that EVERY refugee left without documents. The nature of life in both countries is not new, we are not talking about a sudden natural catastrophe, civilians knew how unstable and uncertain life was. Call me mean or callus, but why didn’t EVERY civilian family have a bug-out bag ready to go at all times and why were these people not carrying documents with them at all times just in case, homes get bombed while you are at the market, village gets overrun while you are at work?

And the excuse about traffickers taking documents from refugees, well that shows illegal intent from the start….if you are a genuine refugee than you know that you have a very legal way out, it might not be as comfortable and first-class as you want it, but beggars need to stop being choosers. I have to completely disagree with the European Union’s sudden ‘welcoming’ of refugees that Italy and Greece have been drowning under for years. This action has only increased the burden on them and other smaller EU members as well as, unconscionablly encouraging the invading non-EU nations without recourse or proper compensation for the invited invasion upon those invaded nations.

It seems to me that since NATO actions have been at the behest of Middle East allies, that they should be the ones taking in all these poor Sunni refugees. Yet, no refugees have sought safe-haven in any Middle Eastern country. Why is that? United Arab Emirates supposedly has a very robust expanding economy. Saudi Arabia is the new head of the Human Rights Council of the UN, so what better place to seek safe-haven, right. And it is much closer than Germany! France! Britain! Sweden!

 

This is the first of 3 articles focusing on the migration crisis invading Europe.

 

Saying It’s Over, Doesn’t Make It So

A few days ago, the UNHCR recommended without much consultation of those being affected, to remove the refugee status of those persons that fled what is now present day Croatia. One of the arguments that the UNHCR used to justify their decision was the inclusion of Croatia in the EU. If joining a club makes you a different country, why wasn’t joining the UN good enough?
The ‘steps’ that one has to go through to ‘be good enough’ to join the EU, have nothing to do with improving the real situation within the borders of said country, they are more an act of obedience. How willing are the new kids to follow orders and conform to the will of the Big Boys. The reality of the EU is not peaceful co-existence, it is economic, political and social control. Make no mistake, any country that has to answer to the demands, even if they are labeled as policies and laws, of another country or governing body down to the daily running of their affairs is neither free nor independent. The con of economic development and aid is not to improve the receiving country, it is instead to insure the conformity of the state to the oppressors. One need only look at Greece, whom ONLY if their economy was healed overnight, will be in-debt to the EU and IMF for the next 150 years. If you consider that 30 years is a generation, the current population of Greece has sold the next 5 generations of its citizens into servitude of EU, without any hope of enjoying the sense of self-worth that sovereignty allows. The situation in Greece is a prime example of how being a member of the EU does not denote that a country is of such quality as to make it a prosperous entity as opposed to being somewhere in the act of rebuilding from destruction or war, as the case in Croatia.
The prime example that Croatia is at most in healing stage and not healed is the anti-Serb actions of persons in Croatia that has continued since the end of the war. Last fall the signs that were in both Latin and Cyrillic script, Cyrillic being the script used most by Serbs were ripped down and or destroyed and now persons using social media are calling for boycotts of businesses and products that are owned and produced by Serbs. This is not the behavior of a compliant people, but Germany and France are not worried they will place more economic burden on the state to bring it into line, of course it will be called loans and economic boost as well as outside investment contingent on demanded behavior. This behavior is not as reprehensible to members of the EU as it is to the persons that have to live with the day to day violence. It is to the advantage of big government to have the little people fighting each other, instead of uniting and keeping government in check.
