Italy: Sale of Christian chapel to a Muslim group will be blocked

“Centuries of history risk disappearing if Islamisation, which up until now has been underestimated, gains the upper hand.”

(Matteo Salvini)

 

They are fighting hard in Italy to save Western Civilization.  We just hope it isn’t too late.

From Reuters:

ROME (Reuters) – Italy’s far-right League party intervened on Sunday to block efforts by a Muslim association to turn a former hospital chapel into a mosque.

The Muslim group last week made the highest offer for the chapel in the northern city of Bergamo at an auction organized by a local hospital, outbidding the Romanian Orthodox Church which had been using the building for its religious services.

But the project proved short-lived, with League leaders in the wealthy Lombardy region, which includes Bergamo, announcing they would halt the sale by using a 2004 law that enables them to intervene and safeguard cultural sites.

“I would never put a Church on sale and I am amazed that the hospital management did not realize what a sensitive issue this is,” Lombardy President Attilio Fontana, a League politician, wrote on Twitter.

“However, we will exercise our right of first refusal (for the sale) and there will be no space for any appeal,” he added.

Salvini grim

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini

His decision means the region must now buy the property.

League leader Matteo Salvini warned earlier this year that Italian culture and society risked being eradicated by Islam. “Centuries of history risk disappearing if Islamisation, which up until now has been underestimated, gains the upper hand,” he said in a statement.

There is a discussion in the Reuters story about the demographic change in Italy.

The story suggests that the Muslim population is still relatively small, but we know that the size doesn’t have to grow that much before demands for religious accommodation begin.

Mosques become a place around which Muslim communities build (even if there aren’t many practicing Muslims in the area when the mosque is first opened).

Italy: three migrants arrested in teen’s death, fuels Salvini’s anti-immigrant message

Of course it does!

From the BBC:

Desirée Mariottini killing: Migrants held in Italy over girl’s death

Photo from Voice of Europe:   //voiceofeurope.com/2018/10/two-illegal-migrants-arrested-for-being-involved-in-gang-rape-and-death-of-italian-teen-girl/

 

Three migrants from Senegal and Nigeria have been arrested by police investigating the rape and killing of a girl whose death has been seized upon by the populist right.

The body of Desirée Mariottini, 16, was found in a derelict building in an area of Rome known for drug trafficking. She had been drugged and gang raped.

Right-wing Interior Minister Matteo Salvini hailed the arrests, condemning those behind the murder as “worms”.

It would not go unpunished, he said.

Salvini grim

Salvini: No protection for migrants who are not legitimate refugees!

Mr Salvini, who leads the anti-immigration League party, has spearheaded measures aimed at scrapping protection for migrants not given refugee status, as well as stopping NGO ships carrying rescued migrants from landing in Italy.

Italian leftwingers who want more migration to Italy call Salvini “jackal.”

When he visited the scene of Ms Mariottini’s murder on Wednesday close to Rome’s main Termini station, he was given a mixed reception of cheers and insults. There were shouts of “jackal”, an insult used by critics who have accused him of taking political advantage of human tragedy.

Investigators believe the victim fell unconscious for several hours last week after being given a cocktail of drugs by several people, and died of an overdose. She was sexually abused before she died.

Italy: See why the Italians are so ticked-off

Invasion of Europe news…..

France has admitted that it ‘mistakenly’ dropped a couple of African migrants (supposedly minors) off into Italy.  See earlier story.

Since it is directly on the Mediterranean, Italy gets the brunt of the migrant invasion while France plays the phony welcoming holier-than-thou nation (along with Germany) in the EU.

 

Macron and Salvini angry

French President Macron says he is the main opponent of the European nationalists represented by Italy’s Matteo Salvini

 

The row between France and Italy continued yesterday in the wake of the latest border incident.

From The Express:

Matteo Salvini accuses France of forcing unaccompanied child migrants back to Italy

 

ITALY’S far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has accused France of pushing two unaccompanied child migrants back into Italy, further straining relations with Paris.

Mr Salvini, the head of Italy’s ultra-conservative League party, said on Twitter: “France tried to send child migrants back to Italy: this happened on October 18, at 10.30pm, but we managed to block the procedure.”

[….]

Tensions between Rome and Paris have reached boiling point in recent months, with Italy’s populist government accusing France and other member states of failing to share the burden of the hundreds of thousands of migrants who have reached Italy by boat since 2013.

While French President Emmanuel Macron has denounced Italy’s anti-immigrant policies, positioning himself as the “main opponent” to Europe’s nationalists, Mr Salvini has accused him of encouraging illegal immigration and of turning a blind eye to Europe’s migration crisis.

[….]

The head of the Hautes-Alpes region admitted that its police had crossed the border, calling the incursion an honest mistake.

[….]

Mr Salvini, for his part, said on Saturday that extra police officers had been deployed to “control and guard” the shared border.

And, no wonder that Italy is turning back the migrant transport ships!

Thousands of migrants are caught each year trying to enter France and returned to the Italian border.

And, you wonder why Italy has budget problems?

France has sent back to Italy more than 45,000 migrants since January, according to the French interior ministry.

German government dragging its feet on admitting migrants they promised to take

Invasion of Europe news…

And, German hypocrisy alert!

Well what do you know, Germany made a big show a few months back when it said it would take migrants from ships docked in Italy and Malta.  Those countries were not letting the wannabe Europeans disembark until other countries promised to take them.

Now we learn that 115 are still in Italy and Malta as Germany must thoroughly screen them!

 

Sea Watch

In a Mediterranean ship version of whack-a-mole, the German ‘Sea-Watch’ migrant transport ship will be back in business soon!

 

From Deutsche Welle:

Rescued migrants in limbo while waiting for resettlement in Germany

 

One hundred and fifteen migrants who were rescued in the Mediterranean Sea have been waiting for months in Italy and Malta for Germany to take them in as promised, the German government has said.

The migrants needed to undergo a medical examination, be registered and attend interviews before they could be transferred to Germany, according to a statement made in response to an enquiry by German parliamentarians of the Left party. They also required checking by German intelligence services before the German federal refugee agency BAMF could arrange a transfer, the statement added.

Salvini grim

What will Italy’s Salvini say? We will be watching!

It said some of the migrants were saved by two military ships on July 13 and taken to Sicily, and others rescued by the NGO ship Aquarius on August 10 and brought to Malta.

Italy and Malta allowed them to disembark only after other EU member states had promised to take them in.

Ulla Jelpke, a spokeswoman for the Left’s parliamentary party, commended Berlin for having pledged to take in the migrants, but called for quick action to fulfill the promise.

“There is no plausible reason for their entry to be put off because of bureaucratic measures,” she said.

Several other EU states have already received the migrants they pledged to take.

Meanwhile, they are baaaacck!

At least one NGO migrant transport ship will soon be back in business on the hunt for African migrants launching from the coast of North Africa.

In another related development, the German NGO Sea-Watch said on Saturday that its vessel Sea-Watch 3 would return to migrant rescue operations after Malta allowed it to sail to Spain for maintenance work, having impounded it for three months.

Sea-Watch accused Malta of having acted “without any legal basis” and said more than 500 people had drowned at sea while the ship was being “illegally detained.”

Italy’s Salvini calls France an “international disgrace” over border incident

Invasion of Europe news….

Italian Interior Minister says that last Friday French police drove across the Italian border and deposited two (believed to be African) migrants in a rural forested area.

The headline at the UK Express blares:

France is an ’international DISGRACE!’ Salvini furious over migrant dumping incident

 

ITALY’S right-wing Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini branded France an “international disgrace” on Tuesday for having driven two migrants across its border and dumping them in Italy.

Salvini and Macron

French President Macron (left) and Italian Interior Minister Salvini are locked in an ideological battle for the future of Europe. 

Mr Salvini rejected Paris’ apology for what it described as an honest “mistake,” prompting the French presidency to accuse him of deliberately “politicising” Friday’s incident.

An Elysée Palace spokesperson said: “We must put things into perspective. It was a mistake – the local prefecture admitted it had made a mistake.”

Italy asked France for “clarifications” after witnesses reported seeing a French police van cross the mountain border at Claviere, near the Italian ski resort of Sestriere, and officers making two men get out in a wooded area before driving back the short distance to France.

The men are suspected of being migrants of African origin.

Sestriere,_Piemonte,_Italia

Sestriere: Even if they hadn’t crossed the border why would they be dropping off two Africans in a rural area like this?

A French official said the police officers behind the incident were new to the area, adding that their decision to cross the border into Italy without seeking prior permission had been an “error”.

Mr Salvini dismissed the French explanation, saying that “abandoning immigrants in an Italian forest cannot be considered a mistake or an incident”.

Mr Salvini said in a Facebook post: “What happened in Claviere represents an unprecedented offence against our country.

“We are facing an international disgrace, and [French President Emmanuel] Macron cannot pretend nothing has happened.

“I wonder if international organisations, starting with the United Nations and the European Union, do not find it vomit-making to leave people in an isolated area, without any assistance.”

Who are they and where are they?

He added: “Paris must inform us IMMEDIATELY of the identities of the immigrants left in the woods. Names, surnames, nationalities, dates of birth.”

Italy and Austria continue to stand up for their people in European migration crisis

Invasion of Europe news….

There is exciting news daily coming from Europe where leaders with backbones are emerging to try to stem the tide of migrants from the Middle East and Africa flooding the continent.

salvini stop invasion poster

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini

First in Italy, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is pushing back against France and Germany who want to send migrants back to Italy to be processed presumably because those migrants first entered Europe through Italy.

From Breitbart:

Salvini Blocks Migrant Agreement That Could See Germany Send Tens of Thousands to Italy

 

Italian populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has blocked a migrant deal with Germany and France that could see tens of thousands of migrants sent to Italy as his party’s popularity soars across the country.

The populist League leader is said to have put the migrant deal on hold as some estimate that Italy may be forced to take as many as 40,000 migrants from Germany and a further 20,000 from France under the proposed agreement, Il Giornale reports.

Salvini has said that he will only accept a deal in which Italy sends as many migrants as it takes from other countries, but German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer is pushing for the current proposal.

Rumours have even circulated that Germany has started to charter flights to Rome and although the German interior ministry denied the rumours, Salvini threatened to close Italian airports to any such flights.

And then this from Austria…..

From Reuters:

Austria has concerns about U.N. migration pact, might back out

 

VIENNA (Reuters) – Austria may follow the United States and Hungary in backing out of a United Nations agreement on migration, its government said on Wednesday, citing concern about its sovereignty and potential restrictions on its freedom to act.

The Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration was approved in July by all 193 U.N. member nations except the United States, which backed out last year.

AUSTRIA-HUNGARY-POLITICS-KURZ-ORBAN

Hungary’s Prime Minister Orban with Austrian Chancellor Kurz standing for the rights of sovereign nations and against globalism!

Hungary’s right-wing government led by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, an immigration hard-liner, has said it will not sign the final document at a ceremony in December. Poland, which has also clashed with Brussels by resisting national quotas for asylum seekers, is considering taking the same step.

“We view some of the points in this agreement very critically. We will therefore do everything to maintain the sovereignty of our country and ensure that we as the Republic of Austria can decide for ourselves on migration issues,” Chancellor Sebastian Kurz told a news conference.

Kurz led his conservatives to victory in last year’s parliamentary election by pledging to prevent any repeat of the European migration crisis that began in 2015, when Austria took in more than 1 percent of its population in asylum seekers.

Kurz went into government with the anti-Islam Freedom Party and together they have agreed to restrict immigrants’ access to welfare payments as part of an agenda that is also heavy on law and order.

Continue reading here.

They are especially concerned if the final pact says anything about migration being a human right!

Come on Mr. President! Invite these European leaders: Orban, Kurz, Salvini etc. for a meeting of the minds in Washington.  Watch Leftwing Dems heads explode!

Helping to save Europe would not be a bad image to project before the Midterm election!

UN High Commissioner for Refugees: Politics driving EU migration debate

Duh! No kidding!

Invasion of Europe news….

UNHCR Filippo Grandi:

“Responsibility-sharing has been replaced by responsibility-shedding.”

Clever phrase by Grandi but a whole lot of average Europeans (Americans too!) are asking why it is their responsibility to save the African continent.

 

Grandi with Soros

UNHCR Grandi glad-handing with Soros! Oh happy day!   //refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/12/04/israel-ready-to-deport-thousands-to-africa-un-furious/

 

From the Malta Independent:

UN refugee chief says Med migrant rescues ‘taken hostage’ by politics

 

The head of the U.N. refugee agency says returns home among the millions of Syrians living abroad are few, and insists that rescues on the Mediterranean Sea have been “taken hostage by politics” — and must be restored.

Aquarius 2

58 migrants who had been kept out at sea for days have now disembarked in a deal that will divide the group four ways.  France, Germany, Portugal and Spain will share them as Italy refused to let the Aquarius 2 dock.      //www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2018/09/30/58-Aquarius-migrants-disembark-in-Malta/4651538326085/

Filippo Grandi also urged Myanmar’s government to do more to create the conditions for Rohingya Muslims to return home. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled to neighboring Bangladesh to escape a bloody crackdown since August last year.

The wide-ranging address by Grandi at UNHCR’s annual executive committee meeting on Monday comes as the European Union has been riven by discord over how to handle an influx of migrants in recent years — though the rate has dropped off from a record high in 2015.

The new government in Italy, which has taken a stricter line on migrants, has refused to allow in some boats that retrieved desperate people who left from Libya, dropping the dilemma of whether to take them in on fellow EU countries like France and Spain.

Grandi, who is Italian, appealed to Europe to preserve its asylum policies. He noted that Libya — the main launch point for migrants hoping to cross the Mediterranean — has strengthened its coast guard in recent months, but not its other institutions.

As a result, more would-be migrants and refugees have been getting forcibly returned to Libya, and “that means more and more people exposed to exploitation and detention — in horrific conditions.”

“Responsibility-sharing has been replaced by responsibility-shedding,” Grandi said, alluding to the EU squabbles. “Pushing people away cannot be the answer, and negotiating disembarkation boat by boat, even when successful, is not a good option.”

Panama revokes registration of Mediterranean migrant transport ship Aquarius 2

The NGO that has been acting as an immigrant “taxi service” was shocked to learn that as of now they have no flag under which to fly.

 

Aquarius 2

Aquarius 2 with its human cargo had been flying under the Panamanian flag.

 

It has been over four years since former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told the Europeans, in April of 2015, that they must turn back the boats carrying Africans and Middle Easterners to Europe. They are finally getting to it.  It’s just too bad that hundreds of thousands got in during those interim years.

From Reuters:

Panama revokes registration of last migrant rescue ship in central Mediterranean

MILAN (Reuters) – The Panama Maritime Authority has revoked the registration of search and rescue ship Aquarius 2 in a move that means there will be no charity rescue ships off the Libyan coast in the near future unless the vessel can find a new flag to sail under.

Aquarius 2, the one remaining charity rescue vessel still operating in the Central Mediterranean area, is currently at sea with 58 survivors on board.

The decision by the Panama Authority (PMA) means that once the ship comes into port it will be deflagged and will not be allowed to operate again unless it can find a new flag.

Salvini grim

Salvini: it is a Mediterranean “taxi service” for migrants!

SOS Mediterranee, one of the charities that operates the Aquarius, said in a statement it was reeling from news of the revocation, which it said followed pressure from the Italian government.

“On Saturday … the Aquarius team was shocked to learn of an official communication from the Panamanian authorities stating that the Italian authorities had urged the PMA to take ‘immediate action’ against the Aquarius,” it said.

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said the Italian government had applied no pressure on Panama.

A public backlash against the arrival of hundreds of thousands of seaborne newcomers in the past five years helped put Italy’s anti-establishment ruling coalition into office.

Salvini has led a popular crackdown against immigration since his League party and the anti-establishment 5 Star Movement took office in June.

Salvini has previously accused SOS Mediterranee and other charities of acting like a Mediterranean “taxi service” for the migrants.

Italy’s Salvini says Europe is importing African slave workers rather than having more children of their own….

….and all hell breaks lose!

“The Luxembourg [foreign] minister declared this morning that we need migrants because Europe is ageing. I told him I instead work towards young Italians (and Europeans) returning to bringing children into the world, because we don’t want new slaves.”

(Matteo Salvini)

 

Here is one version of the exchange in Vienna from The Gurardian:

‘Merde alors!’: Salvini draws fury with reference to African ‘slaves’

Italy’s far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, has compared African immigrants to slaves, prompting Luxembourg’s foreign minister to retort angrily using the French curse “Merde alors!”

The fiery exchange between Salvini – the leader of the League, which governs in coalition with the populist Five Star Movement – and Jean Asselborn occurred during a behind-closed-doors session at a European conference on security and immigration in Vienna.

 

Salvini on facebook

Salvini posted a video of the exchange on facebook!

 

 

Salvini, who immediately launched a crackdown on illegal immigration when his coalition government came to power, proudly published a video of the interaction on his Facebook page, alongside the post: “The Luxembourg [foreign] minister declared this morning that we need migrants because Europe is ageing. I told him I instead work towards young Italians (and Europeans) returning to bringing children into the world, because we don’t want new slaves.”

In the video, Salvini speaks about “being paid by citizens to help our young people start having children again in the way they did a few years ago, and not uproot the best of the African youth to replace Europeans who aren’t having children any more. Maybe in Luxembourg there’s this need; in Italy there’s the need to help our kids have kids, not to have new slaves to replace the children we’re not having.”

Asselborn, sitting two seats away from Salvini, gets increasingly agitated as the minister speaks, before interrupting in French with “allez, allez, allez”.

Salvini then says: “Your opinion is not mine. Maybe in Luxembourg there’s a need for new immigration but in Italy there’s a need to help people have children.”

Salvini is right, the globalists running Europe are looking for cheap laborers.

Italy: Salvini tells UN ‘Human Rights’ honcho to bug off!

michelle UN biddy

UN Human Rights Commissioner and former Socialist President of Chile Michelle Bachelet wants to investigate Italy!

So here we have news from Breitbart where the new Socialist head of the UN Commission on Human Rights says she is sending a team to Italy to ferret out racism by the government there in the wake of recent efforts (by the elected government) to protect its borders and halt the invasion of their country by Africans.

How dare she!

Well that is what Matteo Salvini said too!

 

Salvini Hits Back at UN as New Human Rights Chief Orders Probe into Italy ‘Racism’

Matteo Salvini has said he is considering cutting United Nations (UN) funding after its new human rights chief announced she is sending teams to Italy and Austria to investigate “racism against migrants”.

Salvini grim

Salvini: why should we fund UN waste, embezzlement and theft? Why indeed!

Michelle Bachelet said in a statement Monday that the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is set to “send personnel to Italy to evaluate reports of a sharp increase in acts of violence and racism against migrants, people of African descent and Roma”.

Italy’s interior minister and deputy prime minister said the country would refuse to “take lessons from anyone, least of all the UN”, which he described as having “again proved itself to be biased, pointlessly costly and badly informed”, noting that police have denied allegations there is a “racism emergency”.

“The UN is an organization that costs billions of euros, to which Italy gives over 100 million every year in contributions and we will weigh with our allies on the usefulness of continuing to give these 100 million euros to fund waste, embezzlement, and theft for a body that wants to give lessons to Italians and that also has countries that engage in torture and [still have] the death penalty,” Salvini continued.

“If I were the UN, I would have half a world to send inspectors to before Italy. Go look for racism elsewhere, not in Italy,” he added.

“Before doing checks on Italy, the UN should investigate its member States who ignore basic rights like freedom and equality between men and women,” Salvini added.

Bachelet then also took a whack at our President:

The former leader of Chile and lifelong socialist, who opted to live in communist East Germany for some of her youth, used her speech to denounce U.S. President Donald Trump’s tougher border control policies….

Cut her off Donald, let the UN socialists find their funding elsewhere!

Italy: 50 of the latest batch of migrants allowed in have vanished, Catholic Church let them go!

Invasion of Europe news…..

It was less than two weeks ago that we told you about the stand-off between Interior Minister Salvini and the forces arrayed against him demanding he allow the latest migrant transport ship to unload its cargo.

Father Francesco Soddu

Father Francesco Soddu of Caritas: After all they weren’t in detention! They “voluntarily” departed!

He relented once a commitment was made for most of the 144 to be placed in the care of other countries.

Additionally dozens were to be taken in by the Catholic Church (we cheered that agreement where the migrants would not be a cost to the taxpayers of Italy).

Guess what?

It is those the church took in who have disappeared in to Europe!

From The Local:

Around 50 of the 144 migrants recently allowed into Italy after being stranded for days on a coastguard vessel have disappeared from reception centres, the country’s hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said on Wednesday.

Salvini grim

Matteo Salvini

These migrants “were so in need of protection, a roof and a blanket that they decided to leave and disappear,” Salvini said on Facebook.

“This is the umpteenth confirmation that those who arrive in Italy are not skeletons fleeing war and famine,” he claimed.

The migrants were picked up by the Diciotti coastguard ship on the night of August 15th and were left stranded at sea for ten days as Salvini refused to allow the vessel to dock in an Italian port. The interior minister, who heads the anti-immigration League party, finally relented after Ireland, Albania and the Italian Catholic church agreed to lake most of them in.

The head of Catholic charity Caritas, which was hosting the migrants at its Rocca di Papa reception centre south of Rome, said it was a “voluntary departure”.

The group was not in detention, Father Francesco Soddu told Ansa news agency, and suggested that they may be trying to reach other countries in Europe.

Italy: Salvini and Orban meet, call for creation of a pan-European anti-migrant alliance

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and Hungary’s Viktor Orban met yesterday in Milan to discuss a historic alliance to save Europe from further invasion.

Keep an eye on Europe!  Is it just in time or too late?

“We are near a historic change on a continental level!”

(Matteo Salvini)

 

Salvini and Orban

Hungarian PM Orban (left) met with Italy’s Interior Minister Salvini yesterday in Milan.

 

From Deutsche Welle:

Viktor Orban and Matteo Salvini strive to forge new European anti-migrant alliance

 

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini made no secret of their mutual admiration ahead of their meeting in Milan on Tuesday.

United in their anti-immigration policies and relentless bashing of the EU, the two right-wing lawmakers called for the creation of a pan-European anti-migrant alliance that would seek to prevent migration to Europe from besieged regions in Africa and the Middle East.

Salvini, who heads the far-right League party, the junior partner in Italy’s populist coalition, told reporters that Italy and Hungary would strive to forge a future union “that excludes socialists and the left, that brings back to the center the values and identity” that their parties represent.

“We are near a historic change on a continental level,” Salvini added.

Orban, meanwhile, called on the European People’s Party, the largest group in the European Parliament to which his Fidesz party belongs, to adopt a hardline stand against illegal immigration. Salvini’s League party has since 2014 allied itself in the European Parliament with the likes of Marine Le Pen’s National Rally and Freedom Party of Austria.

What Hungary does on land, Italy does by sea

Orban described Salvini as his “hero and companion” for turning away migrant rescue ships, claiming that such actions were crucial for Europe’s security.

“Hungary has proven that migrants can be stopped on land,” said Orban. “And this is where Salvini’s mission starts: “(Italy) must show that migrants can also be stopped at sea.”

Italian Interior Minister Salvini threatens to quit; Australia elects immigration hard-liner; and NY Times says Trump wrong on South Africa white farmers

In the midst of vacation season for many people around the world, the news is anything but dull and quiet.

First an update from Italy on the latest migrant transport ship stalemate.

From The Express:

Italy sparks EU crisis: Brussels calls emergency migrant talks as leader threatens to QUIT

 

ITALIAN interior minister Matteo Salvini has sensationally threatened to resign over the latest migrant crisis engulfing bloc as the European Commission called an emergency meeting on the issue.

The leader of the right-wing Lega party is at loggerheads with Italian President Sergio Mattarella over whether 177 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean should be able to disembark from the Diciotti ship, which has been left in limbo since docking in Sicilly since Monday.

Salvini turns away another ship

Salvini trying to save his country!

Only 29 unaccompanied minors have been allowed to leave the boat so far.

He has insisted that migrants should only be able to disembark onto Italian soil if other EU allies agree to share the burden with them.

Mr Mattarella is more in favour of letting migrants onto Italian soil for humanitarian reasons and made a rare intervention to end a similar dispute last month by letting 67 migrants disembark from the Diciotti after another rescue mission.

But Mr Salvini has stepped up his opposition to the Italian President’s proposals and will not let him do the same thing again.

In a video message yesterday, he said: “Either you change the country or you change the minister.”

Alexander Winterstein: Priorities like his will be the end of Europe

[….]

European Commission spokesman Alexander Winterstein attempted to calm fears over the latest crisis that threatens to put a wedge between allies across the continent.

In a press briefing on Thursday, he told reporters: “We continue working towards a swift resolution so that people on board can be safely disembarked as soon as possible.

“The priority for everyone should be to ensure these people receive the care they need.”

And then this on South Africa…

I assume you have been following the extensive news accounts coming out of SA about the Communist government there beginning to take farm land without compensation from white farmers.

The New York Times is downplaying that news and once again it (everything in the world!) is all Trump’s fault or in some way connected to him.

white-crosses-sa

Crosses to commemorate the number of farmers murdered in South Africa

I’ve been writing about the decay and the xenophobia in South Africa for years that puts a lie to the Leftwing meme that S.A. is the “Rainbow nation” (implying it welcomes all colors).

It does not and in fact please note that the US is still bringing Somalis and other Africans (not the white refugees!) to your towns and cities as refugees from SA “xenophobia.”  (See my South Africa archive by clicking here.)

Here is the NY Times playing down the latest news…. Trump can never be correct in their eyes!

Trump Cites False Claims of Widespread Attacks on White Farmers in South Africa

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — President Trump waded into South Africa’s proposal to seize land from white farmers, saying in a post on Twitter late Wednesday that he had asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to “closely study” the “the large scale killing of farmers” — a claim disputed by official figures and the country’s biggest farmer’s group.

Mr. Trump’s comment came after the Fox News host Tucker Carlson presented a late-night program on South Africa, including land seizures and homicides, and described President Cyril Ramaphosa as “a racist.” [Nothing cuts the Left so much than to call a black leader a racist!—ed]

The tweet gives prominence to a false narrative [this is a news story, not an editorial!—ed] pushed by some right-wing groups in South Africa that there have been numerous seizures of white-owned land and widespread killings of white farmers. Some of those groups have brought their claims to the United States on lobbying trips.

NYT! Your bias is showing!

Just imagine if some Leftist ‘humanitarian’ NGO was bringing claims of genocide of blacks in Africa to America, would the NYT refer to their efforts as merely “lobbying trips?”  Never in a million years. 

Then this! The government is only taking “unused land.”

The government has said expropriating farms is necessary to deal with longstanding inequities and that only unused land would be subject to seizure, suggesting that land that is being actively farmed would be safe.

And whew, the NYT goes on—-the numbers of farmers killed is down to 47 this past year, while in the previous year it was 66 who were murdered working the land.  I guess to the NYT, over 100 killed in 2 years doesn’t constitute “widespread killings.”

The International Left (through house organs like the NYT) must at all costs keep the myth of the black run South Africa as the Rainbow Nation alive!

Stories of killings to drive out white landowners must be squelched!

Italian city prosecutor suing to allow migrants to get off ship as stalemate continues

This is a picture worth a thousand words!

 

Italian ship scabies

Masked! Italian prosecutor (presumably a Leftist) wants this latest batch of migrants removed from the ship where the migrants would then be interacting with the Italian public. Will all citizens get masks and special suits?

 

We told you here that the Italian Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini said that the latest migrant transport ship could dock, but not unload ‘new Europeans’ until other countries in the EU agreed to take them.

As of last night the stalemate continues although now the city of Agrigento has opened an investigation aimed at allowing the passengers (who are infested with scabies) be allowed ashore.

From The Guardian:

Salvini defiant over investigation into illegal detention of migrants

Italian prosecutors have opened an investigation into the illegal detention of 177 migrants onboard a coastguard vessel that the minister of the interior, Matteo Salvini, refuses to allow to land.

The Ubaldo Diciotti has been docked for 48 hours at the port of Catania, Sicily, but the majority of the migrants have not been allowed to disembark without having guarantees from Brussels on their distribution to other countries.

The investigation, conducted by the prosecutor of the city of Agrigento, was launched against “unknowns” but it is clear that if the magistrates were to go ahead with a judicial proceeding, Salvini would end up under investigation, being the only one responsible for the landing ban.

“I heard that the prosecutor’s office in Agrigento has opened an investigation,” said Salvini in a recent video on Facebook Live.

“I also heard that the suspects are ‘unknown’ at the moment. But I’m not unknown. My name is Matteo Salvini, I’m the minister of the interior. Come on, try me too, I’m here.”

The Ubaldo Diciotti docked on Monday night in the port of Catania but the 177 migrants onboard, including 29 unaccompanied minors, were refused authorisation to disembark.

[….]

So couldn’t they bring scabies meds on board the ship?

On Wednesday afternoon, prosecutors in Agrigento visited the ship and questioned the captain and several migrants.

“There are migrants onboard clearly affected by scabies,” said the chief prosecutor, Luigi Patronaggio. “They require urgent medical assistance. The situation onboard is critical.”

Salvini does allow the ‘unaccompanied minors’ to leave the ship. You all know how that scam has been working when the men say they are minors but there is no proof!

Following the magistrates’ visit, Salvini authorised on Wednesday night for the 29 unaccompanied minors to disembark, but made it clear he would not authorise the landing of the remaining 148 asylum seekers onboard “unless Europe steps in”.

More here.

Maybe the mayor and the citizens of the tourist town of Agrigento could be required to open their homes to the remaining African men—require they stay for a couple of years as the city pays for their care.  I wonder if that might change the politics of the city.

Oh, and maybe the Italian government will spring for masks and scabies meds!  (I can dream can’t I!).

New stalemate in Italy as Salvini says latest ship cannot unload African migrants

 

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini says that before anyone can step off the ship, other EU countries must agree to take the migrants to their own countries.

Standoff in Italy as Salvini refuses to let in refugees after coastguard ship docks

 

An Italian coastguard ship with 177 people on board has docked in the Sicilian seaport of Catania, but Italy’s far-right interior minister Matteo Salvini has not given authorisation for the refugees and migrants to disembark.

The passengers, who have been stuck on the coastguard boat Ubaldo Diciotti for five days will not be allowed on land until “Europe steps in to help’’, Salvini said.

The Diciotti picked up 190 refugees and migrants last Wednesday from an overcrowded boat about 17 sea miles from the island of Lampedusa. Thirteen of them were evacuated for emergency medical treatment.

Since then, Rome has insisted that Malta should take the group because their boat first passed through its search-and-rescue area. But Malta has refused, claiming that the migrants wanted to reach Italy. Questioned by the Italian authorities, the 13 evacuated migrants claimed that the Maltese had escorted them outside its search-and-rescue zone.

On Monday afternoon, after three days of negotiations, Italy’s transport minister Danilo Toninelli announced finally on Twitter that “The Diciotti ship will dock in Catania.”

But shortly afterwards, sources close to Salvini said he had not given the authorisation to disembark, suggesting the boat was granted permission to dock but the migrants will have to remain on board.

Salvini said on Italian TV: “The ship may land in Italy, as long as the 177 migrants are distributed, in a spirit of solidarity by the EU.”

EU’S SCHENGEN CRISIS: Germany ‘considering proposal to impose border controls’ with FRANCE

Germany will send shockwaves to the rest of the Europe by proposing fellow EU powerhouse France with border controls, according to reports.

Too bad Chancellor Merkel didn’t close Germany’s borders years ago since it was the magnet for the massive flood of migrants to Europe in 2014 and 2015!

And this too…

From the New York Times about Spain:

 

Spain fence

‘All of Africa Is Here’: Where Europe’s Southern Border Is Just a Fence

CEUTA, Spain — For most migrants from Africa, the last stage of their trip to Europe involves some sort of perilous sea crossing. At the border in Ceuta, there is just a fence.

 

Go here for my complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive which extends back years and shows a chronology of weakness by European leaders who were warned that they must stop the invasion by turning back boats/securing borders years ago.

Italy gives me hope, but realistically is it too late…will Europe one day be Africa and the Middle East?

Germany frets, Soros lurks, as Spanish Socialists welcome African migrants

Reports at Deutsche Welle and Breitbart yesterday confirm that Germany (and Mama Merkel) are clearly worried about the surge in migrants being admitted to Spain.

 

Spanis wall

Spain here we come!

 

Here is some of Breitbart’s account of what has happened in the wake of Italian citizens awakening to the real possibility of a continued and irreversible invasion from Africa.

Germany Considers New Border Controls After Surge of Migrants Invited by Socialist Spain

Germany has indicated that it may introduce controls along its borders with France and Switzerland after the Socialist-led Spanish government accepted thousands of migrants, with Germany fearing a fresh migrant wave.

German Secretary of State for Migration Helmut Teichmann said that the federal interior ministry is concerned by the number of migrants arriving in Spain, saying: “We fear that many migrants could make their way to France, the Benelux countries and Germany.”

More than 22,800 migrants have arrived on Spain’s shores from North Africa travelling along the western Mediterranean route since January — up 350 percent on last year.

Screenshot (1350)

Conversely, the number of migrants to Italy from North Africa via the central Mediterranean route has declined by 80 percent, after the populist government imposed a policy of refusing to disembark migrant boats on Italy’s shores.

Spain’s conservative government collapsed in June resulting in the Socialists taking power which quickly offered to take the migrant boats turned away by Italy, with Spanish police sources indicating that at least 50,000 sub-Saharan Africans are in Morocco waiting to head to Spain.

The new far-left government has vowed to dismantle razorwire fencing along the borders between its North African enclaves Ceuta and Melilla and Morocco, leaving them vulnerable to uncontrolled mass migration. Once a migrant steps foot on Spanish territory, they have technically entered the European Union and are free to claim asylum and move unrestricted across the Schengen Free Movement zone.

Italy takes steps to reverse demographic decline of Italians by making it easier to have babies/large families!

When I read Mark Steyn’s disheartening America Alone, ten years ago, like Steyn, I saw no hope for Europeans to halt the steep population decline of their people.  Italians, Germans, French and Spaniards, etc. just weren’t having enough children to replace themselves while migrant population numbers were skyrocketing.

For the first time since I started my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series I see hope for a reversal of the trend everyone thought could never be turned around.   Is it too little, too late, who knows, but thank God there are now political leaders willing to try!

 

salvini-orban-690x361

Italy’s Salvini and Hungary’s Orban say NO to the idea that “New Europeans” are needed for Europe’s economy to survive. Thanks, but no thanks, we will produce our own children!

 

From Voice of Europe:

Italian Interior Minister wants more babies and fewer migrants as the country’s traditions and identity are at stake

Matteo Salvini, The League (Lega) leader heads one half of Italy’s new populist coalition government and he’s not held back his opinion that Italy’s “tradition, our story, our identity” was at risk while the political left have used declining birthrates and threat of an ageing population as an “excuse” to “import migrants”.

In an interview with The Sunday Times at the historic Palazzo del Viminale in Rome, the Italian Interior Minister cautioned that a country which imports migrants instead of supporting families is “destined to die”.

His comments follow Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s programme calling for Hungarians to have more children.

Poland and Hungary are among several conservatives in Central Europe making the decision to pursue pro-family policies, rejecting mass migration, despite the possibility of slowing short-term gains to GDP and engendering anger from the globalist establishment in the European Union.

“We have created a ministry of the family to work on fertility, nurseries, on a fiscal system which takes large families into account. At the end of this mandate, the government will be measured on the number of newborns more than on its public debt,” the Minister stated.

U.S. based Institute for Family Studies suggests that the country is successfully “winding back the clock on much of the fertility and family-structure transition that demographers have long considered inevitable” with new policies to help responsible married couples get into homeownership, supporting childbearing, and raising incomes.

Orbán and Salvini’s policies are a significant departure from the many left politicians in Western Europe. Germany’s Gregor Gysi, for example, believes in the necessity and desirability of replacing Europeans with ‘New Europeans’ from a migration background.

Update: Italy allows some of the latest migrants off the ships in Sicily

Relocating the migrants would “lead down the road to hell!”

(Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis)

 

Invasion of Europe news….

This is an update of yesterday’s post about Italy telling other EU countries that they needed to step-up and take in 50 each of the 450 African and Middle Eastern migrants rescued by two Frontex vessels over the weekend.

 

Italy rescue ship

The next generation! “New Europeans” carried ashore in Siccily

 

So far now, five countries have agreed to take 50 each (mostly men): Germany, France, Malta, Spain and Portugal.  So who will get the remaining 200?

From the BBC:

Italy allows migrants to land in Sicily

Italy will allow 450 migrants who were picked up from an overcrowded boat on Saturday to disembark in Sicily.

The decision was taken after Italy said that France, Germany, Malta, Portugal and Spain had each agreed to take 50 migrants.

Malta and Italy had earlier each insisted that the other country should allow the boat to dock.

Italy’s new government has toughened its policies in an effort to stem the flow of arrivals on its shores.

Of the 450, only 57 are women and children!

So far, only women and children, 57 people in all, have been allowed to land in the Sicilian port of Pozzallo.

The migrants were rescued from a boat in the Mediterranean by two vessels of the EU’s Frontex mission, but Italy was unwilling to allow them to land at its ports.

[….]

France and Malta said on Saturday they would take 50 each, with Germany, Spain and Portugal making a similar pledge on Sunday.

SLOVAKIA-CZECH-POLITICS-DIPLOMACY

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis

But Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis dismissed the request, saying relocating the migrants would “lead down the road to hell”.

Babis is exactly right—so what will happen with the hundreds that arrive tomorrow, the next day, the next week …..?

Libya: Once your rescue ships have picked them up, they are all yours!

And Libya restated its refusal to take in anyone from the ship.

“No, we will not accept any illegal migrants after they are rescued by rescue ships,” a coast guard spokesman told Reuters news agency.

Lastest migrant ships stopped by Italy, Italian PM calls on other EU countries to take them

Invasion of Europe news…..

He is calling their bluff!

Other European countries agreed just recently to share the burden with an invasion weary Italy, let’s see how many keep their word.

Italian Coast Guard ship Diciotti with migrants arrives in Trapani

Some of the latest batch of African men ‘rescued’ at sea.

So far Germany, France and Malta have agreed to 50 each which means 300 (of the original 450) are still in limbo.

I was looking for any mention of where the 450 are at right now.

Let me know if you see that important bit of information.

From The Local:

France, Germany, Malta will take 50 rescued migrants each: Italian PM

Germany said Sunday it had agreed with Italy to take in 50 of the 450 migrants aboard two EU border agency vessels, matching similar pledges by France and Malta.

“France and Malta will respectively take 50 migrants each… other countries will follow very quickly,” Conte said on his Facebook page on Saturday.

A German government spokeswoman later said in a statement that “Germany and Italy have agreed that, in view of the ongoing talks on intensified bilateral cooperation on asylum policy, Germany is ready to take in 50 people”.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte confirmed the deal on Sunday, writing on Facebook that 150 of the 450 migrants had now been accepted and the rest would soon be fairly distributed among other EU countries.

 

map major routes to Europe

I put that little green dot on the map to show you roughly where Malta is south of Italy.

 

“This is the solidarity and responsibility we have always asked from Europe and now, after the results obtained at the last European Council, it is starting to become reality,” Conte said.

“Let’s continue on this path with firmness and respect for human rights.”
Italy has since Saturday requested that its EU peers take some of the migrants stranded aboard the Frontex ships off the Italian coast.

Earlier, Italy and Malta had been at loggerheads again over whose responsibility it was to offer the 450 migrants on board the two EU Frontex vessels a safe harbour.

Conte said he had spent the day in contact with his 27 EU peers, reminding them that they had agreed at their end-June summit on the need to share the burden of dealing with the migrant influx.

[….]

The migrants, like thousands of others, had set sail from Libya in a single wooden vessel which was identified early Friday while passing through waters under Malta’s jurisdiction.

Salvini turns away another ship

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini

But Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who has authority over the country’s ports, on Friday refused to let them dock in the latest demonstration of his no-go stance on accepting more migrants.

Salvini insisted instead that the two Frontex vessels be instructed to “head south, to Libya or Malta”.

[….]

Salvini, who took office when Italy’s new populist government came to power on June 1st, wants to block any further migrant arrivals by boat and has banned NGO rescue ships from docking in Italian ports, accusing them of aiding human traffickers.

More here.  The article doesn’t say whether Salvini and Conte are on the same page with this latest batch of migrants.

So what happens with the next ship carrying hundreds????

Dear American readers, if you are sitting back and thinking this doesn’t involve you, think again. 

We have taken hundreds of Malta’s illegal aliens off their hands over the years ever since the Bush Administration waved a magic wand, declared the migrants “refugees,” and said that we would relieve Malta’s burden and resettle some of these men to America.

The last time I looked at the data, the Trump Administration, continuing the legally questionable practice, had taken 123 fake refugees from Malta in this fiscal year (as of May 31).  See my post here.  I’m guessing the Prez has no clue what the State Department is doing regarding Malta.

So if Malta takes 50 of this bunch, how many of those will end up in your American town?

British report: 700,000 migrants piling up in Libya waiting for their chance to jump to Europe

Invasion of Europe news…..

I should have posted this yesterday, but it doesn’t matter if the news is a bit old.  The major point I want to make with this post is this (something that no one seems to want to get the answer to):

So where are these impoverished people from all over Africa and the Middle East (Central America too!) getting gobs of cash to pay traffickers?

Where are the investigators trying to find that answer because that answer, whatever it is, could potentially bring down the whole scam.

I have some ideas, and you probably do as well, but why doesn’t anyone (who could actually do something about it) ever seem to want the answer.

Or, do they know, and they don’t want us to know!

 

migrants piled up in Libya

Africans piled up in Libya waiting for the next boat out.

 

From the UK Express:

‘Italy has caused a MELTDOWN’ 700,000 migrants waiting to cross into Europe from Libya

 

A BOTTLENECK of 700,000 migrants is waiting in Libya to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, the National Crime Agency has said. The number – greater than the population of Leicester – highlights the difficulties facing the EU in controlling migrants seeking a new life in Europe.

Senior members of the NCA, dubbed Britain’s FBI, revealed the figures as they detailed the increasingly tough battle they face to stop people smugglers.

NCA directors warned of a sharp rise in attempted illegal sea crossings from Africa to Europe this year, with 300 people drowning last week.

Migrants are then crossing Europe and using increasingly devious ways to evade detection, including hiding in “coffin-sized” secret compartments in vehicles.

[….]

Tom Dowdall, NCA deputy director of organised immigration crime, said the problem was growing. Attempted crossings to Greece and Turkey are up by 47 per cent on last year, with those to Spain and Italy up by 75 per cent.

They have not reached the peak levels of 2015, caused after Mrs Merkel made a controversial decision to open Germany’s borders and allow a million refugees in.

 

Salvini turns away another ship

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini turns away another ‘rescue’ ship.   //www.express.co.uk/news/world/977644/italy-news-immigration-matteo-salvini-aquarius-lifeline-boat-migrant-crisis-european-union

 

Mr Dowdall said: “The activity by the Italian Republic has caused a meltdown in Libya, creating a bottleneck. There are about 700,000 migrants in Libya and this is making it more difficult for them to move out.”

Chris Hogben, NCA head of operations for organised immigration crime, said rescue boats manned by non-governmental organisations were inadvertently aiding people smugglers.

The NGOs are supposed to rescue people once they are more than 12 miles from the Libyan coast, but come in much closer, he said.

He said: “They make it easier for the crime groups who now send a boat with not enough fuel on purpose as they know they will be picked up.”

[….]

The main sources for migrants into Europe are Libya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Niger and Afghanistan. Mr Dowdall said that smugglers collectively make up to £6billion a year charging would-be migrants.

A single boat from Africa to Europe can net them up to £300,000 [roughly $397,000—ed].
