The city’s Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday to sort out whether the current coddling of illegal aliens should be changed following the shocking death of Kate Steinle last July at the hands of a five-times-deported criminal. Unsurprisingly, the supes only clarified the enormous extent to which illegal aliens, including convicted criminals, are protected in San Francisco: the supervisors specified that only defendants charged with a violent crime and convicted of a violent crime within the past seven years can be referred to ICE for deportation. That is a rather limited category, one that protects foreign criminals rather than public safety.
Fox New reported on the San Francisco supervisors’ decision:
MARTHA MCCALLUM: San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voting to uphold their so-called sanctuary city policy despite coming under fire this past year when 32-year-old Kate Steinle was shot and killed by a convicted felon who was living in the United States illegally, her accused killer protected by that controversial policy. Adam Housley, live in San Francisco where it seems like nothing is going to change because of all that. Good morning, Adam.
ADAM HOUSLEY: Yeah Martha, nothing’s going to change in that unanimously approved legislation which upholds the sanctuary city law. Remember the backlash, you touched on it, with Kate Steinle who was killed here last year. The man who she was killed by was wanted by ICE and was not turned over because of the sanctuary city law in San Francisco. Now what this measure does basically is it clarifies the protections available to illegal immigrants here, the measure calling for law enforcement officers to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE only if a defendant is charged with a violent crime and has been convicted of a violent crime within the last seven years. That would be the only time city workers, including police officers, could disclose immigration status. Supervisor John Avalos sponsored the legislation.
JOHN AVALOS: What it would do is make sure that we’re very clear about who is responsible for any part of the workaround detaining people and notifying people, notifying ICE.
HOUSLEY: The San Francisco sheriff is resisting the limitation, says she wanted more say in the whole situation. She was elected here, of course, and would not necessarily have to follow this new city rule.
MCCALLUM: It’s got to make people think twice about the safety of that city, given what’s happened.
Austria is holding an election on Sunday, and the immigration restrictionist candidate Norbert Hofer is polling well. The media calls him far right for having such unliberal views, but Europe is reaping what its elites, particularly German Chancellor Merkel, have sown, namely the open borders offered to the West’s 1400-year enemy of Islam.
Muslims are behaving normally, i.e. raping and pillaging among the infidels, but that barbaric conduct appears to be a surprise to the government suits in big offices. Elites imagine that historic enmity will disappear just because they want it to, even as “Rapefugees Not Welcome” signs are a common sight at citizen demonstrations.
A totally predictable result of open-borders anarchy is the growth of pro-borders patriots, such as in Germany where the AfD party made noteworthy gains in March, showing voter dissatisfaction with Merkel’s suicidal policy of inviting the hostile Muslim world.
An interesting sidebar is a recent report by the New York Times of the imported violent crime problem. Normally the paper just ignores the genuine havoc created by Muslim diversity loosed upon Europe. But a piece in Saturday’s paper took the suffering seriously and cited it as a factor in the Austrian election.
To be sure, the usual weasel words and phrases are used, like “anti-immigrant sentiment” being “whipped up” for political purposes. Still, the human cost of Merkel’s Muslim infatuation is examined by a look at the victims, particularly the grandmother who was raped by a migrant and now experiences anxiety and needs more care. The Afghan convicted of the crime received a sentence of only 20 months imprisonment because he claimed he was a minor — a common ploy among the invaders to get better treatment.
VIENNA — By any measure, the string of crimes has been terrible. A grandmother of three, walking her dog, raped along a riverbank. A 10-year-old boy sexually assaulted at a public swimming pool. A 21-year-old student gang raped near the giant Ferris wheel at Vienna’s famed Prater park. A 54-year-old woman beaten to death on the street.
The fact that the crimes were committed by recent migrants from war zones and an immigrant who had lived illegally in the country for years added an especially volatile element to the political climate ahead of the presidential election on Sunday, when Austria could become the first European country to elect a far-right candidate as head of state since the end of Nazism.
Nationalism and anti-immigrant sentiment had already been whipped up by the surge of refugees who streamed into Austria last year. Now, the assaults and the coverage of them in the tabloid press could help the far-right presidential candidate, Norbert Hofer of the Austria’s Freedom Party, in what appears to be a tight race against Alexander Van der Bellen, a former Green Party leader.
The Freedom Party has assailed crime and migrants for years, but the backlash against the latest influx of asylum seekers has been especially fierce in this election season. Chancellor Werner Faymann, the leader of the coalition government, was forced out on May 9 after the two centrist parties that have dominated Austria for decades were trounced in the first round of presidential voting.
Sunday’s runoff between Mr. Hofer and Mr. Van der Bellen could turn on concerns that the country’s leaders lost control under the tide of refugees and migrants who reached Europe last year.
At least 90,000 people applied for asylum in this country of 8.4 million before Austria’s government shut its borders and persuaded all the Balkan states, through which the migrants trekked from Greece, to follow suit.
Since then, the challenges of integrating the refugees have become clearer as concerns about crime, sexual mores and cultural clashes come into stark relief across Europe, highlighted by the New Year’s Eve assaults on German women by Arab or North African men in Cologne.
A link between the increased numbers of asylum seekers in the country and any rise in sexual assaults and other crimes has not been established statistically, the Interior Ministry and the Vienna police say.
Over all, the agencies said, crime has declined in the Austrian capital over the past decade.The number of criminal offenses nationwide also declined, to 417,000 in 2015 from 427,000 in 2014, although a slight rise was recorded in the first quarter of this year, the Interior Ministry said.
But especially grim acts, starting with the rape of the grandmother in September, have been hashed over with increasing intensity, feeding the anti-migrant sentiment that helped propel Mr. Hofer to first place in the first round last month.
Sylvia Bubits, 54, walked a path her mother once took daily before she was raped last September.
“Is it just a feeling? Or actually the shocking reality?” the biggest-circulation daily, Kronen Zeitung, asked in early May, reporting on sex crimes and robberies in three Austrian cities. The newspaper asserted that women increasingly fear some public spaces, and questioned whether “one really cannot detect a trend in the statistics.”
Sylvia Bubits, 54, is living the conflicts dividing Austria. She is a longtime resident of Traiskirchen, the town just south of Vienna that hosts Austria’s largest center for refugees. Displaced people first arrived from the conflicts of the Cold War, then from the Balkans and now from the Middle East and beyond.
Ms. Bubits is also the daughter of the woman, now 72, who was raped while walking her dog on Sept. 1. Since the attack, Ms. Bubits said, her mother has gone from being healthy to ridden with anxiety and requiring close attention.
Worse, our government has reduced its refugee screening program from two years to three months. However the latest iteration of “good enough for government work” probably doesn’t matter anyway: FBI Director Comey admitted last October in a House hearing that the US cannot adequately check Syrians for jihad affiliation because Washington cannot access Syrian databases. There is no way to do background checks without records, so even the three-month screening is a farce.
Nevertheless, refugees are being dumped in American communities, many of which do not understand the extent to which they are being endangered. President Obama is determined to unload 10,000 Syrians into the country within this fiscal year no matter what the threat. Last September, Secretary of State Kerry announced the US would “significantly increase our numbers for refugee resettlement” despite the danger to Americans, and he noted, “And in the next fiscal year, we’ll target 100,000, and if it’s possible to do more, we’ll do.”
Mike McCaul, Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, observed last year, “Many Americans are understandably concerned about the threat posed by inadequate security screening procedures for refugee seeking entry into the United States. ISIS themselves have stated their intention to take advantage of the crisis to infiltrate the west. We have to take this threat seriously.”
Senator Jeff Sessions, Chair of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, has expressed his concern about increased numbers of refugees. Within the context of how immigration of various categories is running at record highs, he noted the diminished ability of the nation to cope with the influx, which is worsened by overcrowded schools, the weak jobs economy and other factors. In September, the senator called for a long-term strategy to deal with Islamist ideology, and that did not include inviting thousands more of them to live among us. Instead, he emphasized the strategy of containment, which America used successfully in the Cold War.
Europe shows the horror Washington is rushing willy-nilly to imitate. For those of us who value women’s rights and safety, the mass sexual attacks that occurred on New Years in Cologne and other cities were a reminder of how bad Muslim diversity can be. On February 15, the AP reported that of the 73 suspects arrested thus far out of more than a thousand criminal complaints, the “overwhelming majority” were refugees, according to Cologne prosecutor Ulrich Bremer.
It’s no surprise then that a word has sprung up to describe the new social reality brought by unrestricted Muslim immigration: Rapefugee. A Google search of that descriptive term can be quite illuminating.
German citizens were assured by Chancellor Merkel that by opening their borders to Muslim “refugees,” it would be a rewarding act of humanitarian generosity. But there were far more foreigners than had been forecast by the government, and instead of good vibes, Germans got rapefugees, crime and chaos. So there have been various responses showing the citizens’ rejection of immigration anarchy, from the electoral success of the pro-sovereignty party to the burning of refugee housing.
Still, Merkel’s government has been largely deaf to citizen complaints because the suits think they know best about how the little people should behave.
History shows that when government fails to perform its prime directive of protecting public safety, the people will step up and do it themselves. One example is the San Francisco Committee of Vigilance, a group of concerned citizens who organized to combat the corruption and crime during the Gold Rush.
German authorities on Saturday reported an increase in the number of arson fires at shelters for refugees who flooded Germany last year, raising concerns about anti-migrant violence.
“This year, there have already been 45 arson fires,” said Holger Muench, head of the federal criminal police (BKA).
“What is particularly worrisome is the increasing scale of the violence,” he said in an interview with the Funke newspaper group.
In 2015, when Germany opened its doors to 1.1 million migrants mostly from war-torn Syria, 92 arson fires at centres for asylum seekers were reported, compared with only six in 2014, according to BKA statistics published in late January. Continue reading this article
Tuesday was International Women’s Day, but European women aren’t feeling very empowered since the continent has been opened to misogynist Muslim barbarians. Normal standards of safety have been wiped out in months by gangs of allah’s enforcers who want Islamic sharia law forced upon Europe. Under Muslim rules, women stay home and out of public spaces because they are believed to be subhuman. Free western women who act like citizens are seen as whores who deserve to be raped.
Police in Östersund in northern Sweden have warned women about being out on their own after dark, but the city’s mayor has trashed the idea.
Officers in Östersund first advised women not to walk around on their own at night, during at press conference on Monday, explaining that there had been at least six reports of violence against women in the area since February 20th.
“Now the police are going out and warning women against travelling alone in the city. We have seen a worrying trend,” regional police chief Stephen Jerand told Swedish media.
How is this not an invasion? Millions of foreigners have entered, captured territory (no-go zones) and enforced their culture (sharia) upon citizens of the receiving nation.
America should learn from Europe’s mistakes and forget about admitting unscreenable Syrian “refugees” and end Muslim immigration altogether. President Roosevelt didn’t issue Nazi visas during WWII.
More on Sweden’s anarchy below. It foolishly invited all of Syria to come live there in 2013. Generous liberals should be careful of what they wish for. A society can have women rights and safety, or it can have Muslim diversity — but not both.
“Almost every Swedish woman feels very or somewhat unsafe when they exercise alone in the dark”, finds new research by the Aftonbladet newspaper in the wake of the migrant rape crisis.
Combining a wide-ranging study of attitudes of women towards being outside in the evening on their own and personal interviews, the findings show that the statement of 34-year-old Ellinor Andersson that she carried a bunch of keys in her hand at night, ready to strike out, are quite normal.
Talking to Aftonbladet, the woman said: “I would never go running by myself on a Friday or a Saturday night”. Another said she would never go out alone after seven in the evening.
The survey finds that now 46 per cent of women aged 16 or over felt either very or somewhat unsafe when they are alone in the dark, compared to just 20 per cent for men. Even during the daytime many are uncomfortable, the results also show 43 per cent felt insecure while in a city on their own, and around a third were “afraid” of Swedish cities”.
Many women were so afraid of trying to get home in the dark, they would go to lengths to avoid it. Almost one third said they’d rather stay at a friend’s house overnight than try and get home, should they be caught out by the falling sun. Continue reading this article
It’s hard not to think the Swedes are getting their just desserts with the current wave of migrant violence and chaos. It’s Sweden’s snotty arrogance that got them into this mess, calling itself a “moral superpower” because of its stupid generosity in welcoming dangerous people inside the gates.
In 2013, Sweden granted blanket asylum to any and all Syrian refugees, surely one of most foolish policy choices ever made by a government. Liberals seem not to accept the concept of Enemy, even though Muslims have been beheading infidels for 1400 years, which reveals a persistent pattern of hostile behavior.
Even the PBS Newshour noticed that open borders diversity has brought trouble to the (alleged) socialist paradise. But the network upheld its liberal cred when its reporter asked a Swedish patriot whether he was a Nazi because he expressed concern about public safety. And PBS managed not to use the word “Muslim” a single time but utilized the phrase “right wing” four times, suggesting that citizens resisting the chaos are the problem.
Things are so bad that the “moral superpower” is considering deportation! But wait, isn’t diversity always enriching?
JUDY WOODRUFF: Sweden is struggling to accommodate 165,000 people who’ve applied for asylum there amid the refugee crisis. Now, in a reversal of its open door policy, the government says as many as half could face deportation.
A growing right-wing reaction to the migrant influx has fueled tensions.
From Stockholm, special correspondent Malcolm Brabant reports.
MALCOLM BRABANT: Sweden fashions itself as the world’s humanitarian conscience and safe harbor for more refugees per capita than any other European nation, but it has been shaken by a series of incidents that have ruptured that image.
MAGNUS RANSTORP, Sweden National Defense College: I would say that Sweden’s social structures are under severe stress.
MALCOLM BRABANT: Magnus Ranstorp is an expert on extremism in Scandinavia.
MAGNUS RANSTORP: It’s a cocktail of various ingredients which makes society extremely polarized. And the government is having a really difficult time dealing with this.
TINA MORAD, Refugees Welcome Stockholm: As a refugee here, I would say it’s pretty hostile.
MALCOLM BRABANT: Tina Morad is a Kurdish political scientist who fled from Northern Iraq as a child, and now advocates on behalf of fellow refugees.
TINA MORAD: We have noticed a lot of activities for the past week at least where you have Nazis and racists crossing the street and demonstrating against the refugees arriving in Sweden.
MALCOLM BRABANT: These are right-wing vigilantes, including football hooligans, apparently attacking immigrants. This precinct is where young Moroccans hang out. Many have acquired a reputation as petty criminals and troublemakers.
The attack happened a few days after a murder at a young asylum seeker’s hostel in Western Sweden. A 22-year-old worker, Alexandra Mezher, originally from Lebanon, was stabbed to death, allegedly by a young Somali, after trying to intervene in a fight. The murder intensified pressure on Prime Minister Stefan Loven, whose popularity has slumped despite U-turns over his open door migration policy.
STEFAN LOVEN, Prime Minister, Sweden (through interpreter): I believe quite a few people here in Sweden now feel a great worry there will be more similar cases, as Sweden accepts so many unaccompanied minors. Many of those who come here to Sweden have had traumatic experiences, and there are no simple answers.
MALCOLM BRABANT: Fredrik Hagberg is a leading member of a far-right activist group called Nordic Youth. He admits to feeling sympathetic towards the vigilantes.
FREDRIK HAGBERG, Nordic Youth: It’s chaos in Sweden. It’s getting worse by the minute. It’s like the gates of hell is open. More and more immigrants than we can take care of is coming every day. The violence is getting more and more. Hatred against Swedes, people are getting bigger and bigger. The women and children are getting harassed every day.
The police can’t be everywhere at once. The people need to do something by themselves if something is going to change.
MALCOLM BRABANT: It sounds like you might be advocating violence?
FREDRIK HAGBERG: No, not at all, not at all. Our movement has always stood against violence, political violence, but I believe in self-defense.
MALCOLM BRABANT: And this is one of his organization’s videos.
Are you Nazis?
FREDRIK HAGBERG: No, not at all.
MALCOLM BRABANT: How can you prove that?
FREDRIK HAGBERG: It’s proved by my actions, or you just walk around. Look at our Web site. We have a program there, manifest.
MAGNUS RANSTORP: I think the greatest threat Sweden is facing is that we have an equal amount of extremism. We have a lot of right-wing extremism and, of course, left-wing extremism. There’s a sort of reciprocal radicalization going on. They are feeding and fueling each other. Continue reading this article
Two Iraqi refugees were arrested on Thursday for terror-related charges, one in Sacramento and one in Houston. Keep in mind that the US presence in Iraq over years has given our government plenty of access to information about Iraqis entering this country. Even so, these jihadists were able to slip through any alleged screening — just like earlier Iraqi refugees such as Waad Ramadan Alwan (a former Iraq soldier who planted bombs against Americans) and Abdullatif Aldosary (a convicted felon who was nevertheless allowed to remain in the US and eventually bomb the Casa Grande AZ Social Security office).
Below, Texas Governor Greg Abbott remarked about the arrests, “This is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists.” He has been vocal in his opposition to Syrian refugees, along with at least 29 other governors.
Fox Business’ Stuart Varney observes, “You think ISIS isn’t already in this country? Well, you better think again.”
Cases could hurt Obama plans to take Syrians seeking asylum
Authorities arrested two Iraqi refugees on terrorism-related charges Thursday, in a move that undercuts President Obama’s plans to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees to the U.S. this year.
Prosecutors said Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, a Palestinian born in Iraq who came to the U.S. as a refugee from Syria in October 2012, later traveled back to Syria to train with terrorists, then lied to immigration officials about it later.
Even as he arrived in the U.S., he was plotting to join the fight with terrorists in Syria, according to government documents that said he talked about having killed Syrian security officers.
Investigators also indicted Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, a Palestinian man born in Iraq, on three counts of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State.
The revelations are a major blow to Mr. Obama, who had insisted the Iraqi refugee program was a success and it proved the U.S. could properly screen out would-be bad actors from the Syrian refugee population as well. Continue reading this article
The mainstream media sees the holiday season of Christmas and New Years as a perfect time for sob stories about the suffering of diverse immigrants. The articles are easy and formulaic to write, plus they function as a liberal scolding to Americans about how mean-spirited we are to deny the foreigners amnesty and/or our enthusiastic welcome even to potential enemies.
Seriously, the threat is getting worse: (At least 60 people charged with terrorism-linked crimes this year — a record, Washington Post, Dec 25). The government should be tightening up, not flinging open the doors to the enemy tribe of 1400 years standing. America is hugely endangered by Washington’s continuing immigration permissiveness toward Muslims, and we citizens are supposed to shut up and take it.
In a New York Times sob story, it followed Kamal, a Syrian Muslim, as he picked up cupcakes for his kid’s school Christmas party — he’s become so well adjusted after arriving in January, yet some mean-spirited Americans don’t want Syrians (Thriving in Texas Amid Appeals to Reject Syrian Refugees, Dec 25). Maybe Kamal is a decent guy, but what happens when junior goes through his teen rebellion and perhaps decides America is the problem? The second generation is often where the problems occur.
Earlier this week, the Washington Post tried for a standard sniffler approach for profiling Mostafa Hassoun, a young man struggling to adjust (Isolated Syrian refugee finds support, suspicion, Dec 26). Immigration even in the best circumstances is a highly stressful endeavor, and when cultures are vastly different, adjusting is much harder.
The Washington Post’s Sunday front pager featured the kids as a ploy to highlight a Syrian family’s “apprehensions” and “fear” about entering unfriendly America. Poor long-suffering Muslims! Why would anyone in the United States be suspicious of members of the mass-murdering political cult?
The newbie Aldobai family with six kids (!) is headed by daddy Sarhan whose work experience is described as “shepherd” and he does not speak English. Furthermore, the family preferred to stay in the Middle East and did not want to live in America at all.
What could possibly go wrong with such stupid and suicidal public policy?
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Tribune News Service)- America’s newest family of Syrian refugees flew in late at night, and Sarhan Aldobai, 36, looked down from the plane at the distant lights of his new home. His wife was nursing their baby in the next seat.
His five other children had fallen asleep. Sarhan took out the small world map he had carried since leaving Syria in 2012 and tried to trace the plane’s path.
They were flying over the United States, where polls showed that a majority of residents said they didn’t want more Syrian refugees. They descended into Kentucky, where the new governor had vowed to block arrivals because of “risks to our citizens.” They landed in Louisville, where at that moment in late December a Republican presidential debate was being broadcast live on airport TVs.
“What would you do with these people?” a moderator was asking the candidates about the 2,000 Syrians who had already been admitted into the United States in the past four years, since the war in Syria began. “Do they pose a terror threat? Would you send them back?”
Sarhan walked off the plane and stopped to wash his face and wipe his shoes. His three sons were dressed in winter jackets donated for their trip by the United Nations. His oldest daughter was carrying an American flag she’d been given during a pre-departure cultural orientation for refugees. They had been taught that Americans believed in wearing seat belts, that girls and boys attended school together, and that recent terrorist attacks in Paris and California had caused a backlash against Muslims. They’d been told about Donald Trump, and how his supporters talked of shutting down mosques, banning Arabic and creating a government registry of Muslims. These were some of the things Sarhan knew about the United States.
What the United States knew about him was collected in his refugee case file. “Reason for resettlement: Physical protection needs.” “U.S. ties: none.” “Prior occupation: Shepherd.”
“English ability: Reads none, writes none, speaks none.” “FBI screening: Cleared.” “Department of Homeland Security: Approved.” Continue reading this article
La Times practically shrieked in joy with a featured story at how California has become less American, less law-abiding and more Mexican, er diverse. The arrogance of liberals knows no bounds.
Behold the Tuesday headline, right below the Times banner:
It’s not exactly a good time to be doing cartwheels about California’s rebellion against law and sovereignty when another murder victim of an undeported illegal alien criminal has been in the news. This time the victim is a 64-year-old woman veteran of the Air Force, Marilyn Pharis, who was bludgeoned to death in her own home in Santa Maria.
Nevertheless, the preventable murders of Californians are just so much road kill to la Times, which apparently believes that liberals’ open-borders utopia is worth all the death and suffering. Citizenship, law and sovereignty are just so 20th century.
Interestingly, the online title of the celebratory article was slightly less confrontational than the print version. I think. Note that energized Democrats have more goodies planned for foreign moochers.
It started with in-state tuition. Then came driver’s licenses, new rules designed to limit deportations and state-funded healthcare for children. And on Monday, in a gesture heavy with symbolism, came a new law to erase the word “alien” from California’s labor code.
Together, these piecemeal measures have taken on a significance greater than their individual parts — a fundamental shift in the relationship between California and its residents who live in the country illegally. The various benefits, rights and protections add up to something experts liken to a kind of California citizenship.
The changes have occurred with relatively little political rancor, which is all the more remarkable given the heated national debate about illegal immigration that has been inflamed by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“We’ve passed the Rubicon here,” said Mike Madrid, a Republican strategist. “This is not an academic debate on the U.S. Senate floor about legal and illegal and how high you want to build the wall…. [The state] doesn’t have the luxury of being ideological…. The undocumented are not going anywhere.”
Democratic lawmakers and immigration activists, with diminishing opposition from the GOP, continue to seek new laws and protections. These measures include cracking down on employers withholding pay from low-wage workers and expanding state-subsidized healthcare to adult immigrants without papers.
These new initiatives face obstacles, but backers say such hurdles center on the hefty price tags of the programs, not political fallout from the immigration debate. Continue reading this article
It’s mid-summer and the weather is pleasant, a perfect time for third worlders to flood into Europe more easily. There has been a lot of reporting about the rickety boats headed north from Africa, but it’s also possible for the intruders, some number of whom are unfriendly Muslims, to walk to the first world, just like Mexicans do to get here.
On Sunday, the New York Times reported on the walkers, and interestingly didn’t call them “refugees” at every opportunity. Perhaps the brilliant reporters there figured out that when all of the relocators are young males (as in the photo below), then they are likely economic migrants looking for “a better life” i.e. more money, rather than families forced from their homes by war or natural disaster.
Below, Syrian men traverse Serbia on the way to Hungary and points beyond in Europe.
Unsurprisingly, pockets of resistance are forming up among Europeans. Hungary is building a fence to block the intruders, which supposedly will be finished by November. Naturally the invaders are miffed, with some declaring ”This wall, we will not accept it”, showing their aim to conquer rather than immigrate.
“For us, today Europe is at stake,” Orban said. “The survival, disappearance or, more precisely, the transformation beyond recognition of the European citizen’s lifestyle, European values and the European nations.”
“The question now is not only what kind of Europe we Hungarians would like to live in,” Orban said. “Rather, will all that we now call Europe exist at all?”
Below is a cheerful video item from Deutche Welle that follows the journey of one invader, a Syrian named Ahmad Shelabi, as he travels to Germany to start his “new life.” No mention that any job he finds will be one not available for a German citizen — unpleasant facts can ruin a diverse puff piece!
A lot more resistance from the people of Europe will be required for Brussels to come around to defending their culture from demographic defeat via illegal immigration, the 21st century’s more polite form of war.
SUBOTICA, Serbia. — They call it “the jungle,” but it’s really just a tangle of dirt paths through stunted trees near an abandoned brick factory.
Between 150 and 200 people — mostly men, with a smattering of young families — cluster in discrete groups in scattered campsites, most resting on dusty blankets, the earth blackened here and there by the remains of the previous night’s fires.
“We have people from Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Somalia, Morocco,” said Mohamd, 42, a former truck driver for a factory near Aleppo, Syria, who hopes to reach the Netherlands. “Am I forgetting anyone?”
His cousin, Walid, 45, scratched his well-worn sandal into the hard clay. “Algeria?”
Mohamd waved him off. “That group went into Hungary two nights ago,” he said. “We have not seen them back yet.”
With war continuing to plague the Middle East and Afghanistan, and thousands trying to flee Africa’s grinding poverty, the swell of refugees and migrants hoping to reach Western Europe shows no signs of abating this summer.
For the last few years, the most popular route has been across the Mediterranean on boats run by Libyan smugglers that aimed for the nearest islands off the Italian coast. But as that route has become increasingly dangerous — the range of threats include drowning, abandonment by unscrupulous smugglers and crackdowns by European border patrols — the human tide is shifting. Increasingly, migrants are following a land-based route into Europe by way of Greece and the West Balkans.
But with the alternative crossing come other perils: violence, exploitation, intolerance. Though most European countries are overwhelmed by the tide, fueling an anti-immigrant backlash in many places, Eastern European countries like Hungary, Serbia and Bulgaria are considered particularly hostile.
It is a rare thing for a poll to ask the difficult questions of Islam people, so the recent effort from the Center for Security Policy is appreciated. The survey shows a supremacist group that has not come to join the American community, but to prevail over it. An observation of the late Lee Kuan Yew, the founder of modern Singapore, is appropriate: “I think we were progressing very nicely until the surge of Islam came. . . I would say today, we can integrate all religions and races except Islam.”
A majority of the Muslims polled thought they should be allowed to be governed by Islamic sharia law in this country. (So why didn’t they remain in Islamistan??)
A substantial minority believe attacks on Americans are justified because that’s what jihad requires.
The results of the survey show the extreme folly of Washington continuing to admit Muslim immigrants. Not all are active headchoppers, but America used to recognize that welcoming declared enemies is not something a prudent nation should do. For example, Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt didn’t admit Germans or Japanese during WWII. And Osama bin Laden declared war on the US in 1996, a war that continues to this day.
Admitting Muslim immigrants is welcoming enemies, statistically speaking, and highly unwise. We should stop.
Survey of Muslims Living in the United States June 2015
I. Overview: Troubling Results
From June 1-10, 2015, The Polling Company, Inc. conducted a nationwide online survey of 600 Muslims living in the United States on behalf of the Center for Security Policy (CSP). The results, many of which are troubling, are presented below.
Overall, the survey suggests that a substantial number of Muslims living in the U.S. see the country very differently than does the rest of the population. Nearly one in ten of those Muslims polled accurately agree that the beliefs of Al Qaeda and Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) are correct and consistent with Islamic law (shariah).
Between a quarter and a third think that violence is called for when their faith is insulted, and that it is legitimate to attack Americans here in the U.S. as part of the Global Jihad. By contrast, in an earlier poll of the broader U.S. population, CSP found that a 63% majority of those surveyed said that “the freedom to engage in expression that offends Muslims or anybody else is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and cannot be restricted.”
Although a majority of Muslims living in the U.S. is not disposed to violence, a majority does embrace shariah and wants the American legal system – and Americans themselves – to approve and accommodate it. More than half (51%) of US Muslims polled believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts. And a majority of those surveyed (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.” When that question was put to the broader U.S. population, overwhelming majorities held that sharia should not displace the U.S. Constitution (86% to 2%), and that Muslims should be subject to the same courts as other citizens rather than have their own courts and tribunals here in the U.S. (92% to 2%).

According to the United Nations, June 20 is World Refugee Day, an event designed to draw attention to the many people cast adrift by war and calamity. That’s the idea at least. Many of the current crop of Africans fleeing to Europe are economic migrants — otherwise they wouldn’t be mostly young men under 30.
The BBC had a story in April that tracked African aliens; one was a Gambian Muslim who journeyed over 4500 miles to reach the first-world opportunities in Europe in order to support his large polygamous family. But Europe has opened its borders wide for “refugees” so people like the Gambian are taking advantage of a situation.

Malick, a 30-year-old mobile phone technician, describes how he began his journey across Africa to Europe in October 2012 because of his financial situation, struggling to support his extended family.
He had finished school early and started work because his father – who has three wives – could no longer pay school fees for Malick and his 18 other children. [. . .]
Erie Pennsylvania is having a Refugee Celebration as are Jacksonville Florida and Wakefield Oregon. Isn’t that like having an Ebola Celebration? Don’t people feel un-celebratory about being forced to leave their ancestral homes and be resettled in an alien culture?

Western nations should not admit potential enemies within our gates: Muslim refugees should go to Muslim nations, period.
In fact, America would be a lot safer if Muslim immigration were ended immediately.

The new figures, released Thursday by the United Nations refugee agency, paint a staggering picture of a world where new conflicts are erupting and old ones are refusing to subside, driving up the total number of displaced people to a record 59.5 million by the end of 2014, the most recent year tallied.
