Failure of Europe’s Open Door Policy: Denmark consigns ‘unwanted’ migrants to small island

Actions speak louder than words.

The Danish government will not admit it, but by its decision to send (an initial) 100 “unwanted” migrants to a small island, Copenhagen effectively admits that its open door policy to mainly Muslim “migrants” and “refugees” is a failure.

According to a Danish-language report (Google Translate here) on the Danish government’s Immigration and Integration Ministry website uim.dk, which was last updated on December 4, 2018, the Danish government and the Danish People’s Party have signed an agreement on the Finance Act for 2019 with “a number of initiatives” concerning refugees and migrants.

While Denmark “helps and protects persons fleeing from war and unrest,” too many refugees who have come to Denmark in the last 20 years are “still in Denmark”. A “new approach” is needed, which “sends a clear signal that the refugee stay in Denmark is temporary and that Denmark has both the will and the ability to act quickly and efficiently when the basis for the individual’s residence permit is no longer present.”

The new agreement signed by the government is aimed at sending refugees “home as soon as possible” and to”better control who is in Denmark,” especially “foreigners who are unwanted in Denmark,” who will be “accomodated” on Lindholm, a small island southwest of the capital Copenhagen.

“A new exit center” will be established on the island to accomodate “unwanted foreigners,” including criminals and rejected political-asylum seekers “who are convicted of violation of the Penal Code, the Arms Act, the Knivloven Act or the Act on Euphoric Drugs”.

Immigration and Integration Minister Inger Støjberg says:

“We have concluded an agreement that clearly indicates that refugees’ stay in Denmark is temporary. Refugees must meet from day one the expectation that they will return home as soon as they can to help build their country. It makes sense for both them and us…. With the agreement we also introduce a family reunification ceiling. It is crucial that Denmark does not return to a situation like in Autumn 2015, and a family reunification ceiling is a clear signal that there is a limit to how many refugee family reunions Denmark can handle. I am pleased that we have also agreed to establish an exit center on the island of Lindholm for the criminals who currently live at the Outreach Center Kærshovedgård. They are unwanted here in this country, and the new exit center on Lindholm is a signal that they have no future in Denmark. ”

The agreement also specifies the following:

  • The Immigration Act must be amended so that residence permits issued to refugees and refugee family reunification are withdrawn when the basis for the residence permit is no longer present and as soon as Denmark’s international obligations allow it. Residence permits for refugees will not be issued with the possibility of permanent residence.
  • Foreigners are to be self-sufficient as soon as possible; refugees’ residence in Denmark is strictly temporary.
  • New refugees must work as quickly as possible, sustaining themselves until they can be repatriated to their native countries.
  • The “transitional” allowance for single parents is reduced by DKK 2,000 per person per month, for cohabiting and married parents by DKK 1,000 per person per month — equivalent to DKK 2,000 per household. The state refund of 50% of municipal expenses for supplementary and individual benefits under the Integration Act will be abolished.
  • The repatriation scheme is strengthened, among other things by extending the target group for repatriation to refugees from areas where temporary protection status is granted and to refugees who have dual citizenship, including Danish, if they opt out of Danish citizenship.
  • To enforce the new rules on refugees’ temporary residence in Denmark, fingerprints and face recognition experts will be trained.
  • A family reunification ceiling will be introduced where the number of asylum seekers increases sharply.
  • Convicted aliens will be sentenced and imprisoned for longer terms.
  • Sharper penalties for foreigners who violate their residence, notification and reporting.
  • As soon as possible and by the end of 2019, an agreement must be reached with a partner country to establish Danish prisons abroad, so that criminals sentenced to expulsion will serve their sentences abroad rather than be a cost for Danish prisons and Danish society.
  • An amendment to the Danish Constitution and Denmark’s international obligations will seek to prevent foreign monetary donations to communities, associations and organizations whose purpose is to counteract and undermine Denmark’s democracy and fundamental freedoms.

Crocodile tears: Hillary Clinton & John Kerry bemoan Europe is crushed by migrants

The Left really are a breed apart in their hypocricy and malevolence.

First, they promote mass “immigration” of Muslims and other Third Worlders into Europe and America.

Then, when the predictable social problems ensue, they wring their hands in distraught and cry crocodile tears.

Recall that George Soros, whose foundations actively facilitate migrants and “refugees”, wept crocodile tears over Europe being on the verge of collapse. Then we have European Jewish intellectuals, who had pushed for Muslim immigration into Europe, now urging Jews to leave Europe.

Now, two of the biggest promoters of mass immigration are making tsk-tsk noises about Europe being “crushed” and “roiling” from “migration”.

 Hillary Clinton

In an interview with The Guardian, Hillary lectured to European leaders that they must “get a handle on migration” that is “roiling the body politics” because migration “is what lit the flame” of “the bread and circuses” of rightwing populism that poses “a serious threat to our freedom and our democratic institutions.”

She said back-handedly that although “I admire the very generous and compassionate approaches that were taken particularly by leaders like Angela Merkel, but I think it is fair to say Europe has done its part, and must send a very clear message – ‘we are not going to be able to continue provide refuge and support’ – because if we don’t deal with the migration issue it will continue to roil the body politic.”

John Kerry

John Kerry, who took over from Hillary as Obama’s secretary of state, also lamented to The Guardian: “Look at Europe! Europe’s already crushed under this transformation that’s taken place because of immigration.”

Kerry also wrung his hands about Donald Trump dismantling the Paris climate agreement and about the gross inequality in America where “Fifty-one per cent of the income of America going to 1% of Americans.”

But, as The Guardian points out, Kerry and his second wife, Teresa Heinz, themselves are exalted members of the top 1%:

According to a 2015 New Yorker profile, between them they own at least six properties, including a 23-room mansion in Georgetown, Washington DC, and a 90-acre farm outside Pittburgh in Pennsylvania, as well as a 23-metre (76ft), $7m (£5.4m) sailboat called Isabel. “We’ve got to make America fair again. You gotta make things work for working folks so they can pay their bills and send their kids to school, reach the brass ring, retire in dignity, have healthcare – the priorities are pretty clear, in my judgment. We need infrastructure. Desperately. We need to start rebuilding America,” he says.

The Wall is being built! – in Israel

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II.

To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance. (Source: Congressional Research Service Report to Congress, February 26, 2018)

Callum Paton reports for Newsweek that on August 9, 2017, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) revealed construction details of a new $800 million underground wall to run along Israel’s 40-mile border with Gaza and extending into the Mediterranean.

Israel already is protected by a 143-mile border fence, touted by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for drastically reducing illegal immigration along its southern border:

“Israel … had a real problem with illegal immigrants coming in from the southern border, about 16,000 in one year. In two years, they constructed 143-mile fence, about $2.9 million per mile, and it cut that illegal immigration rate from about 16,000 to I think 18. Cut it by 99 percent.”

The new $800 million wall is to protect Israel from the threat of attack tunnels dug by Hamas, the Islamist militant group that has controlled Gaza since 2007, and to stop Hamas fighters from swimming ashore.

The wall, 19-ft. high and 131 feet underground, will be constructed mainly from concrete, reinforced with iron bars and pipes and covered in sensors. Work on the wall began in October 2017 and is expected to take two years to complete.

H/t Voat

Meanwhile, Paul Dijks reports for Voice of Europe that on Nov. 20, 2018, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cited Israel’s need to protect its borders as the reason why Israel will not be signing the United Nations’ global migration pact set to be formally approved on December 12 in Marrakech, Morocco.

Netanyahu said in a statement:

I instructed the Foreign Ministry to announce that Israel won’t participate [in the Marrakech gathering]and won’t sign the migration pact. We have a duty to guard against illegal infiltrators. [Jewish Nation-State Law requires the government] to stand up for a clear migration policy that protects our borders from illegal infiltrators.

Seven countries have withdrawn from the UN global migration pact over concerns about national sovereignty: Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and the United States.

On December 2, 2017, the Trump administration announced that the U.S. Mission to the United Nations had informed the UN Secretary-General that the United States is ending its participation in the Global Compact on Migration because the compact is “inconsistent” with U.S. policies:

The New York Declaration contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with US immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles. As a result, President (Donald) Trump determined that the United States would end its participation in the Compact process that aims to reach international consensus at the UN in 2018.

Curiously, Jews outside of Israel are rabidly pro-migration and anti-border wall. See:

The Apostasy of Pope Francis: Wiccan stang and an LGBT rainbow cross

Since his election and installation in March 2013 as Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church, we now have sufficient evidence from Jorge Bergoglio’s words and deeds to raise serious questions as to whether this pope is Catholic or even Christian:

  1. To begin, a legitimate case has been made that Bergoglio’s election as pope was illicit, being contaminated by lobbying in violation of papal law.
  2. Bishops, cardinals and archbishops who are Bergoglio’s allies are flagrant homosexuals and pedophiles. See “Pope Francis’ Vatican: a cesspool of pedophiles and homosexuals” and “Catholic Church in Crisis: Pedophile cardinal; Pennsylvania priests abused 1k children; homoerotic church service“.
  3. Bergoglio misuses the pope’s claim to doctrinal infallibility by claiming papal infallibility on climate change.
  4. He is a rank hypocrite:
  5. As pope, Bergoglio has made pronouncements that are contrary to both Catholic doctrine and Christian theology. As an example, in an interview with his longtime atheist friend Eugenio Scalfari, published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica, Pope Francis claims that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.” This is a denial of what Jesus Himself said in Mark 9 about Gehenna of “unquenchable fire”, and the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.
  6. Bergoglio’s reign as pope has been one of terror: His critics are censored and threatened with excommunication. Bergoglio’s most recent and most prominent critic, Archbishop Carlo Viganò, who calls for the pope’s resignation, has gone into hiding, in fear for his life. See also “Cardinal Müller: ‘Pervading sense of fear’ in Pope Francis’ Curia“.
  7. Most egregious of all is Bergoglio’s refusal to genuflect at the consecration, his joke about Christ’s crucifixion, and his concealment of the crucifix by stuffing it inside his waist sash so as not to offend Jews.

Pope Francis hides the Crucifix meeting Israeli rabbis

Here’s the latest — and the last straw for me — on the apostasy of Pope Francis:

(1) The Wiccan Stang

The pagan religion of Wicca or witchcraft uses a range of “magical” tools in its rituals — at an altar or inside a “magic” circle. Each of the tools has different uses and associations, but all supposedly direct magical energies.

The stang is one such “magical” tool — a pronged wooden staff, topped either with a naturally occurring fork or with antlers affixed (Wikipedia). Wiccans claim that witches not only rode on broomsticks, but also on stangs.

On October 3, 2018, Pope Francis opened the Synod of Bishops in Saint Peters Square in Vatican City, holding what appears to be a Wiccan stang, instead of the traditional papal ferula with a cross at the top. (PJMedia)

Photo by Associated Press (PJMedia)

Contrast the stang carried by Pope Francis with the papal ferula carried by Pope John Paul II:

(2) The LGBT Rainbow Cross

It’s bad enough that homosexuals have appropriated the rainbow, which God sent after the Great Flood as a sign of His promise that He would never again punish humanity and other living creatures with “a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9).

On World Youth Day on October 17, 2018, Bergoglio signaled his solidarity with homosexuals by adorning himself with an LGBT rainbow cross pendant (LifeSiteNews).

Lisa Bourne of LifeSiteNews notes:

The photo of Francis wearing the rainbow cross was also provocative given its timing amid widespread apprehension that the Youth Synod is being used to advance the normalization of homosexuality within the Church. For the first time in a Vatican document, the term “LGBTQ” has been included in the Youth Synod working document. Small groups within the Youth Synod have already called for the Church to recognize “other forms of family” and to pay more attention to homosexuals and the “realities” they face, specifically mentioning “marriage,” surrogate pregnancy, and adoption.

I second Archbishop Viganò’s call for Pope Francis to resign. If U.S. bishops have any integrity, they should do likewise.

H/t Robert R.

Update (Nov. 16):

In an interview, published Oct. 13, Msgr. Nicola Bux, the theologian consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, warned that Pope Francis is issuing statements that are generating “heresies, schisms, and controversies of various kinds” and that Francis should issue a profession of faith to restore unity in the Church.

Deception: NGO coaches migrants how to pretend to be Christian refugees to gain political asylum

The European Asylum Support Office (EASO) is an European Union agency created in 2010 to improve protection for asylum seekers and to coordinate EU Member States on political asylum. The agency has a process to identify real refugees among the hordes trying to legally migrate to Europe.

Ariel Ricker is the founder and executive director of Advocates Abroad (AA), an NGO (non-governmental organization) founded in Febrary 2016 in Northern Greece. AA’s 380 advocates provide legal aid to refugees and migrants seeking political asylum in Europe, as well as prepare them for their asylum interviews. Recently, University of Cambridge students and 12 British MPs helped raise more than $60,000 for AA.

Lauren Southern is a remarkable 23-year-old Canadian woman and political activist who is the founder of the “Borderless” documentary project on the European migrant/refugee crisis.

George, a producer of “Borderless,” went undercover and took a video of Ricker describing how she and other “refugee advocates” coach migrants on how to pretend to be Christian refugees. Ricker reveals that her organisation, Advocates Abroad, has studied transcripts of asylum interviews so as to generate stock answers to key interview questions for asylum seekers to use. Advocates Abroad teaches applicants to simulate emotions like crying, in order to appear sympathetic, and to display certain refugee characteristics asylum officers are trained to look for, including how to pray as a Christian.

In the undercover video, beginning at around the 2:26 mark, Ricker describes how migrants are coached to fool EU asylum officers into thinking they are genuine refugees:

Ricker: “So we teach them how to, like, literally [feigns being emotionally overwraught; deep sigh], sometimes as simple as this, and then how to tell their story, how to frame it, how to literally explain it, and how to keep their private emotions and their private trauma private, because all this acting is a shield.”

George: “Do you have to coach people on, like, physicality?”

Ricker: “Yeah, I see it like, um, I tell them that this is, um, acting, all of this is acting, it’s all acting, as though this is theater. So, for them to get through, they must act their part in the theater, and that [their part] is the refugee in trauma, because these EASO (European Asylum Support Office) officers are so fucking stupid, all they know is what’s written on the paper EASO says this is refugee in trauma, they have these characteristics. So we coach people how to have these characteristics.”

Beg. at 3:44 mark:

Rickers: “There’s a formula we came up with, which is ironic because I suck at formulas. But it’s [the formula] like significant event, date, and location . . . answer all the questions the same way. [As an example, the migrant should say] in December 2017, in Izmir, Turkey, I was threatened for being a Christian because my boss and his friends jumped me when I was leaving my church. This is the Bible they tried to tear up. This is the crucifix I was wearing that they tried to tear, and it made me feel unsafe as a Christian in Turkey. Baboom. And that way you’ve had the event, the date and the location. So you’ve given them a very specific answer, and you’ve kept it in a tight, short answer as well, rather than rambling about . . . and it’s much harder to refute because you have all the elements in there. So like our narrative timeline format, like, has a fill-in-the-blanks section at this point, and then we have, like, two examples for home country being significant danger in that location, and then ditto for Turkey. So consistency is the most important thing, even if you find yourself in a position where you have to lie, because you suddenly remembered something else. It’s best just to stick with what you said.”

Beg. at 5:40 mark:

Ricker: “They put in the decision whether or not you were acting with emotion, so you have to be, like [feigns sighing and crying], or crying, or stopping, or throwing up, or asking for a break. So it’s, um, it’s becoming an actor.”

Man: “You have to tell people to ask to take a break?”

Ricker: “Oh, we do. We actually do role play. So we prepare them a folder. So, like, the first roleplaying activity we do is, like, us being them, and they’re the officer, and then we flip around after they’ve had some practice, to see how should I walk into the office, how should I introduce myself, how should I give them the folder, and then how do I sit down, and then when do I stand up, when do I show them how to pray.”

Man: “Why would you need to show them how you pray?”

Ricker: “Because it’s a good way to show honesty. This is done in other places too, like, uh, not good places, to see if you’re truly what you say you are. If you can’t show how you pray….”

Man: “If you’re actually a Christian?”

Ricker: “Mmm.”

Man: “Oh, so if you’re saying that you’re fleeing persecution….”

Ricker: “Then you should probably know how to be, you know, praying that way. They also ask, like, what’s your favorite holiday? So, like, some people just say, like, Christmas. But, like, we explain you can’t just say this because this is not a sufficient answer. You have to say, uh, and you have to say this a certain way, which is, like, December 25th, which is Christmas, which is the birthday of our Lord and Savior.

Lauren Southern says that some of the “migrants” whom Advocates Abroad is teaching how to pretend to be “refugees” are wealthy Muslims who are not being persecuted, as well as criminals and ISIS terrorists.

Watch the video on Bitchute.

According to Borderless:

In an official statement, UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) said it was ‘alarmed by these reports’ while the Sturm College of Law, a University of Denver school listed as a partner on the Advocates Abroad website, responded to say it was ‘shocked and repulsed’ by the comments made by Ms. Ricker and that the university has no official affiliation with the organisation and its students will not continue to work with Advocates Abroad.

Minnesota House race: Democrat Muslim Ilhan Omar is a bigamist who married her brother

Minnesota state legislator Ilhan Omar, a Democrat and a Somali Muslim, currently leads the race to fill the federal House seat being vacated by Rep. Keith Ellison, also a Democrat Muslim.

Immediately after being elected to her current seat in 2016, Omar faced allegations — soon backed by a remarkable amount of evidence — that she had married her own brother in 2009. (They officially divorced in December 2017.)

Omar said she had married “British citizen” Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, but that the allegation that he is her brother is “absurd and offensive.”

Now, David Steinberg of PJ Media has found “exclusive” new evidence — from official archived high school records and corroborating sources — that strongly supports the claim that Ahmed Nur Said Elmi is Ilhan Omar’s brother.

According to official student enrollment records archived by St. Paul Public Schools and the state of Minnesota, an “Ahmed N. Elmi” was enrolled as a senior in the Class of 2003 at Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN, from September 6, 2002, until June 10, 2003. He graduated and received a diploma.

The enrollment record states that “Ahmed N. Elmi” was born on April 4, 1985 — the same date of birth for Omar’s husband, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, in both Omar’s 2009 marriage documents and her 2017 divorce proceedings.

Steinberg conducted an extensive background search, but did not find any other person named “Ahmed Nur Said Elmi,” “Ahmed N. Elmi,” or “Ahmed Elmi” with the birthdate April 4, 1985. Omar’s husband and the boy who attended Arlington Senior High School in St. Paul, MN are one and the same.

Steinberg contacted several members of the Class of 2003, and was told that Ahmed Elmi “was living with his father” while attending Arlington Senior High School. Elmi’s father was the same man Ilhan Omar has always publicly referred to as her own father: Nur Said Elmi Mohamed.

Here is Mohamed’s Facebook account, where he refers to himself as Nur Said.

Steinberg emailed Rep. Ilhan Omar, the MN Democratic Party (DFL) chairman, and the MN DFL CD-5 chairman, asking for their comment.

No one responded, but Omar intimated in a tweet that “the Republican/right-wing propaganda machines” are behind the allegations she had committed incest by marrying her brother.

Steinberg writes:

The motivation for the marriage [to her brother] remains unclear. However, the totality of the evidence points to possible immigration fraud and student loan fraud. As this implicates Rep. Omar in multiple state and federal felonies, I have contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minnesota to submit all other information uncovered during our investigation.

But Ilhan Omar didn’t just commit incest; she’s also a bigamist.

Back in August 2016, Scott Johnson of Powerline revealed that when Ilhan Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, she was still married to Ahmed Hirsi, whom she’d married in 2002 and with whom she had three children. Johnson wrote:

Inputting the name Ilhan Omar, I have confirmed both marriages as noted in the Somalispot post via the online Minnesota Official Marriage System….

Minnesota law defines bigamy as “knowingly having a prior marriage that is not dissolved” while also “contract[ing] a marriage in this state.” Bigamy is a crime punishable by up to five years in prison or a fine up to $10,000. The definition and penalty provisions of the crime of bigamy are set forth in Minn. Stat. § 609.355.

Migrant who stabbed Americans in Amsterdam did so because “Dutch insult Islam”

Religion of Peace strikes again.

From Associated Press (via Sacramento Bee): An Afghan asylum-seeker accused of stabbing two Americans in Amsterdam believes that Islam is insulted in the Netherlands, Dutch prosecutors said Monday, giving the first indication of why they think a “terrorist motive” was behind the attack.

The 19-year-old suspect is accused of stabbing the 38-year-old tourists Friday in an unprovoked attack after he arrived at Amsterdam’s Central Station on an international train.

The American men were not targeted because of their nationality, which the alleged attacker did not know, prosecutors said. The suspect’s grievance was with the European country where the assault took place, they said in a written statement.

“It is apparent from his statements that he believes that in the Netherlands, the Prophet Muhammad, the Quran, Islam and Allah are repeatedly insulted,” prosecutors said, noting that the young Afghan man specifically mentioned Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who is well known for his fierce anti-Islam rhetoric.

“From the suspect’s statements so far, it is clear the man had a terrorist motive … and that he traveled to the Netherlands for that reason,” the prosecutors’ said.

Earlier Monday, German authorities said the man had applied for asylum in Germany and was not considered a security threat there.

Wilders last week called off a planned contest for cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad following death threats and concerns other people could be put at risk. Prosecutors said the suspect did not mention the contest in his statements.

Wilders reacted with a tweet, writing: “Muslim terrorists hate our way of life and our freedoms. They answer criticism of Islam with violence.”

The prosecutors added that there was so far no indication the suspect, identified as Jawed S. under Dutch privacy rules, was working with anyone else.

Police shot him after the stabbings, and he remains in a hospital. An investigating judge held a closed-door hearing there Monday and ordered him held for two more weeks on suspicion of assaulting the Americans “with a terrorist motive.”

They suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries in the attack.

The judge extended the suspect’s custody because of fears he may flee, repeat the crime or violate the law, according to a statement by an Amsterdam court.

Germany considering a year of national service for migrants

This is going to help refugees “integrate” into German society.

Yeah, riiiiight.

From The Guardian: Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party is floating the idea of a new form of compulsory national service in Germany for all young people and migrants.

For over 50 years, all German men were obliged to spend a year in the army after leaving school. Those who could not, or would not, volunteered their time in community service instead.

The scheme was abolished in 2011, but the belief that young people should dedicate a year to national service persists in many conservative circles. Now, the CDU leadership, keen to reunite the party around traditional core values, is revisiting the concept.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer,the CDU general secretary, suggested earlier this month that all young men and women should complete a compulsory “service year”. The plan, if implemented, would also apply to all adult asylum seekers and refugees, she added.

The programme would see some young people join the military or the fire service, or help with disaster relief. The CDU hopes others would choose to volunteer as care workers, thereby helping address chronic staff shortages in care homes and hospices.

The proposal came after Kramp-Karrenbauer – among the favourites to succeed Merkel as the head of the party – conducted a “listening tour” of the CDU grassroots, gathering ideas for a new manifesto to be presented at the forthcoming party conference in December.

“Many CDU members mentioned reintroducing the draft or general compulsory service,” Kramp-Karrenbauer told the Funke Mediengruppe news group on Saturday, adding that she still remained undecided. She also explained the suggestions she had heard often mentioned including migrants, something she thought “worth considering”.

“If refugees complete such a year, which could be voluntary or mandatory, it would help to integrate them into the country and society,” Kramp-Karrenbauer said. “It would also increase the acceptance of refugees among the population.”

Her comments were immediately dismissed as “populist” by the Social Democrats and the proposal has so far found no support from the Greens, the leftwing Die Linke, or the liberal Free Democratic party (FDP). Only the far-right Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) supports reintroducing military service.

Meanwhile, Ursula von der Leyen, the German defence minister, has categorically rejected the idea that military service would return in its previous form – mostly because the army is not equipped to deal with the number of fresh recruits.

The German military, the Bundeswehr, currently gets enough volunteer foot soldiers but is lacking specialised soldiers willing to invest in a long-term career with the armed forces.

Still, the idea of a compulsory “service year” has a long way to go. It is possible it would require a change to Germany’s constitution, which forbids all forms of forced labour.

But for the CDU, the renewed debate has had the desired effect of rallying the party around a common cause. If the idea is adopted as policy, the party hopes it will have a similar effect on the electorate.

“A compulsory service year would “strengthen social cohesion in Germany,” CDU’s minister-president of Saarland, Tobias Hans, told newspaper Bild am Sonntag. German youth get free school education and enjoy high social standards, he added. The nation “should be able to expect young people to give something back to their country” in return.

800 African migrants, armed with flamethrowers, storm Spain's border

Fri, 27 Jul 2018 13:09:42 +0000

eowyn2

Is this or is this not an invasion?

Ceuta is a Spanish city on the North African coast, one of two Spanish territories in North Africa (Melilla is the other). Ceuta is a hub for African migrants trying to reach Europe. The city has a border fence of parallel 20 ft. wire fences topped with  barbed wire, which forms part of the Morocco–Spain border. Constructed by Spain, the fence’s purpose is to stop illegal immigration and smuggling.

On July 26, 2018, some 800 “sub-Saharan” African migrants, armed with sticks and homemade flamethrowers, broke through the Ceuta border fence.

The Spanish Civil Guard reported that the “migrants” used electric radials, shears and mallets to cut the border’s outer and inner protection mesh. The “migrants” also wielded “defensive material” such as flamethrowers, iron hooks, stones, sticks, and Molotov cocktails. They also hurled plastic containers of excrement and quicklime.

602 migrants broke through the border and entered Ceuta. They threw stones at border agents and official vehicles. As a result of the migrants’ violence, 15 civil guards were wounded, five of whom had to be treated in Ceuta’s University Hospital.

The Spanish Red Cross tweeted that 132 migrants were injured, 11 of whom had fractures.

Over 19,000 “migrants” have entered Spain in 2018 so far, according to the data from the International Organization for Migration.

But in June 2018, newly appointed Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska announced his desire to remove the Ceuta fence: “I’m going to do everything possible to see that these razor wire fences at Ceuta and Melilla are removed.”

After the Ceuta border violence, the Spanish Civil Guard’s AEGC union asked the Spanish government to clarify its “plan B” to maintain security if the wire was removed. The union said: “We’re one of the main entry points from the third world into Europe and none of those in charge at the interior ministry have wanted to see or resolve the problems this is causing.”
