Merkel Tries To Off-Load Refugees

A Big Mistake Angela!

A Big Mistake Angela!

It is public knowledge that Angela Merkel of Germany caused major problems for Europe a few months ago when she made an extremely rash statement  inviting refugees into Germany. As we all know, the country was overwhelmed by refugees and economic migrants to the tune of 1.1 million within six months. I should imagine she is now regretting her silly invitation.

Right now Germany is desperately trying to off-load as many refugees as it can on to other European nations. However, this is not gaining much success as Germany’s position gets desperate, and in fact the situation in most of Europe is getting desperate. Merkel is calling for E.U. solidarity to help cover up her big mistake, but the other E.U. countries do not want to know, and quite rightly too.

It is certain Merkel was distinctly naïve when with a single announcement she opened Germany’s border to refugees from Syria. She should have known that every man, woman and child living in squalor throughout Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan and Afghanistan among others would jump at the opportunity to live in Europe, especially considering the generous benefits they would receive.

Now that Germany’s population has suddenly risen by 1.1 million she now wants all other E.U. countries to take ‘their fair share’ of the refugees. Her action is without doubt the biggest political blunder since the Second World War.

If Germany was heading for trouble because of a low birthrate among its citizens, there are more controlled ways of tackling the problem without throwing open the doors to every Tom, Dick or Harry. You would have thought she would have learned from Tony Blair’s mistake when he threw open the doors to anyone who wanted to come and live in Britain. Now look at the mess the country is in!!!!

Is This To Be The Face Of Europe In The Future?

Is This To Be The Face Of Europe In The Future?

As things stand at the moment, the eastern European countries are setting up more and more razor-wire fences to keep the immigrants out, and even France, Germany’s strongest ally has shown little enthusiasm for Merkel’s welcome policy. The mood in France was described as ‘not favourable’ by Prime Minister Vals who said to the German media, “Europe cannot take in all the migrants from Syria, Iraq or Africa. It has to regain control over its borders, over its migration or asylum policies.”

It was quite ironic that US Secretary of State John Kerry praised Merkel for showing “great courage in helping so many who need so much amid the gravest humanitarian crisis in Europe since World War II”. I say ironic, because America has done practically nothing to help alleviate this humanitarian crisis in the Middle East. I am not criticising them for the military actions, but their reluctance in taking in Syrian refugees.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev had a completely different view on the subject for he said, “It’s quite simply stupid to open Europe’s doors wide and invite in everyone who wants to come to your country. European migration policy is a total failure, all that is absolutely frightening.” This statement I have to agree with, because Europe still does not know the real effect this massive migration will have on our future. That is something we will find out in a few years time.

Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are holding meetings next week to see how best to tackle this major crisis, and most importantly, protect themselves. “As long as there is no common European strategy, it is legitimate that the nations along the Balkans route protect their borders,” Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak said in a news conference. He also said that in his view the ‘quota system’ put forward by Merkel will only encourage more refugees to come.

German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen is reported as saying, “How can a continent of 500 million citizens see its foundations shaken… by 1.5 million or 2 million refugees?” Well, the answer to that is simple!

Europe has still not fully recovered from the economic crisis at the turn of the century with many people still jobless and living on welfare. On top this, it already has a population of around 56 million Muslims from a quoted total of 500 million. Experience has shown that there are too many religious differences for the Muslim population to fully integrate into European culture.

The ‘shaking of the foundations’ Ursula von der Leyen is on about will not happen immediately, but in perhaps twenty or thirty years time. The reason being, as I have stated before in earlier posts, is that the Muslim birthrate is six to seven times higher than that of Europeans. I leave you to do the maths and figure out what the future holds for Europe.

The dithering and lack of positive political action to stem the flow of refugees that has even continued through the winter is causing much unrest within Turkey. This country, which borders with Syria, is currently housing around 2.7 million refugees within its borders and is getting more and more agitated. Constantly migrants are pouring over the small strip of Aegean Sea between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of Kos among other places, but there are more than a million more waiting on the Syrian border for their chance to enter Turkey.

The E.U. nations have pledged to give Turkey $3.3 billion to help in caring for the refugees, but it can be seen that Turkey is getting desperate. On being asked by the E.U. to do more to stem the flow of refugees, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that if there is not proper action by the European nations on the subject, he will open the border with Syria and let all the immigrants through. If that happens we will end up with another flood of refugees just like 2015, only much bigger!

It is without doubt a delicate problem, but needs to be solved quickly before the summer otherwise Europe will be well and truly overrun.
