    Historian: Europe Has Learned Nothing from 2015, Next Migrant Crisis Only a Matter of Time

    German historian Hans Peter Schwarz claims that European leaders have learnt nothing from the migrant crisis in 2015 and the continent is ill-prepared to deal with the next inevitable crisis.
    In his newly released book, The New Migration to Europe, the German historian has analysed the current immigration trends in Germany and the exploding demographic growth in Africa and the Middle East, concluding the next migrant crisis is only a matter of time, Kronen Zeitung reports.

    “We are not prepared for migration,” Schwarz said and claimed that the current legislation dealing with asylum seekers in Europe is from “another time”.

    He said the legislation, which was meant to be able to deal with small numbers of asylum seekers, is simply inefficient in handling mass waves of thousands of migrants at a time.

    “As long as the European Union abides by its well-intentioned but out of date refugee rights, any attempt to effectively protect the EU’s external borders will fail due to legal self-restraint,” he said.

    Schwarz laid the blame for the crisis on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the German federal government. “Never before in the 65 years of German history has a federal government caused such chaos,” he said and noted that if it had not been for the Austrian government closing the Balkan route the chaos would have continued.

    The solution to the problem, according to Schwarz, is to reform the EU and largely scrap the open-borders Schengen agreement, opting instead for some border controls.

    Managing the number of migrants is also important and Schwarz recommended the number of asylum seekers never grow to more than 1.5 per cent of the population of a country. In 2015 alone, Sweden took in the equivalent of 1.6 per cent of its population and Germany took around 1.2 per cent.

    Though the Balkan migrant route has been largely secured, the Mediterranean route into Italy and Spain continues to grow. In a 48-hour period, Italy saw 13,500 migrants arrive on its shores and days before 400 migrants attempted to storm the border with France.

    Estimates of how many migrants are looking to cross the sea to Europe vary, though some like European Parliament President Antonio Tajani say as many as 30 million people could come in the next few years.

    A leaked report from German authorities estimated a smaller number saying they expected around 6.6 million migrants to cross the sea in coming years from North Africa, Jordan, and Turkey. The confidential report notes that despite it being closed, there are 76,000 migrants still on the Balkan route, 62,500 of them in Greece alone.

    EU-Funded Report Tells Journalists Not to Write Negative Articles on Migrant Crisis

    A new journalistic code of practice, funded by the EU, calls on journalists to avoid reporting on the migrant crisis in a negative way, refrain from linking Islam to terror and avoid mentioning whether or not a criminal migrant was in the country illegally.

    The guideline even calls on journalists to report their colleagues to the authorities for “hate speech” if they do so.

    The code, financed by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship program, defines hate speech as expressions which ‘promote or justify xenophobia’ including ‘intolerance expressed by aggressive nationalism’.

    The report says that although journalism cannot ‘solve the problem of hate speech on its own…the European Union must reinforce existing mechanisms and support new tools designed to combat hate speech’.

    To do this, the report calls on journalists to shop their colleagues to police, as well as people who comment on their articles, on the grounds that they’ve committed a hate speech offence.

    The new guidelines ask hacks to not to report ‘migrants as exclusively having a negative impact on society’ and singles out ‘reports that present migration as constituting a net cost to the social safety net’ and to only mention a migrant’s ethnic origin or religion ‘when necessary for the audience to understand the news’.

    The code urges reporters not to focus on ‘issues such as whether asylum seekers’ claims are genuine’, which is odd because the EU’s own statistics show that most of those who come are economic migrants who don’t qualify for protected refugee status.

    It also calls on journalists to refrain from reporting on crimes committed by migrants unless they include ‘statistics that disprove assumptions that migration leads to rising crime levels’ – a worrying ask for those on the right who frequently write about no-go zones which are directly linked to mass migration.

    “Don’t fall into the trap of focusing solely on possible negative aspects of large-scale migration. It is also important to highlight positive contributions of migration and individual migrants,” they say.

    The report’s author states: “When problems inside the asylum system occur – e.g, migrants riot, or an increase in small-time criminality is noted- look critically for the root cause” – which on the previous page, the authors say includes “poverty and climate change”. Climate change?!

    The report recommends that journalists should not use the adjective “illegal” when referring to migrants.

    When reporting on Islam, journalists are asked not to refer to Islamic culture as ‘barbaric, irrational, primitive, aggressive, threatening or prone to terrorism’ and when reporting negative or ‘hateful comments’ towards Muslims, reporters should ‘challenge any false premises on which such comments rely’.

    Additionally, the group say that reporters shouldn’t quote politicians or other public figures on migration ‘without challenging their statements’ and recommends approaching migrant advocacy groups for lines that can be used against anti-migration narratives – effectively asking supposedly neutral reporters to become pro-migrant advocates within the media.

    This is like Orwell’s 1984 – the level of censorship here is unreal. It’s typical EU: there’s only one right way to think and behave. Controlling thought and speech is the hallmark of a dictatorship…welcome to the EU.

    Study: 70% of Europeans see rapid population growth of Muslims as a serious threat

    A large majority of Europeans are becoming increasingly worried about the rapid population growth of Muslims, a February survey of the Századvég Foundation shows.

    One thousand Europeans from 28 EU countries were asked: “How serious a threat to Europe is the rapid population growth of Muslims?”

    Of the respondents, 40% said that they saw the threat as ‘very serious’, while another 30% said that they see it as ‘somewhat serious’.



    The study also shows that 78% of respondents see illegal immigration as a serious problem, with 57% believing that the influx of migrants will change their country’s culture.

    Respondents overwhelmingly believe that Europe should aid and support migrants (81%), but they believe that this should occur in their home countries.

    This could be the right idea as Paul Collier, a professor at Oxford University, recently stated that Western countries could help more than one hundred refugees in their home countries for the same cost of helping just one domestically.

    “We spend 135 dollars for every person who shows up here, compared to one dollar for every person that we help in their own region. Those staying home are often much weaker than the ones who have the resources to get to Europe,” the professor said at a conference of Denmark’s Social Democracy Party in Copenhagen last year.

    Syrian Govt: “Refugees” Can Come Home Now

    The Syrian government has announced all of its nationals outside that country who fled as “refugees” can now return home as peace returns to that nation following the crushing of the US-backed terrorists and ISIS.

    According to a report in the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the State Minister for National Reconciliation Affairs Ali Haidar made the announcement during a recent meeting with the Lebanese Ambassador to Syria Saad Zakhia.

    Haidar said that plans to create and “appropriate atmosphere for the return of the Syrian refugees to their homeland is underway with all administrative, logistical and executive measures being adopted”—meaning that there is no longer any reason for Syrians to seek asylum in Europe.

    “Large number of citizens will return soon to their homes in the city of Deir Ezzor, southeastern countryside of Aleppo, Damascus Countryside and other areas,” Haidar added.

    As of October 2016, Lebanon officially hosted 1.5 million Syrian refugees, half of them children (below 18 years old). It was to discuss this number that the meeting was held, but the fact that the governments of Syria and Lebanon are now discussing their return is an indication that they are seeking to end the “refugee” issue.

    If Europe (or some EU-country) can not get deported no EU citizens ... like 64 years old Moroccan man who is charged for at least 25 sexual crimes!


    , or 25 years old Iraqi man

    ...who had raped 14 years old girl earlier and as got free from jail ... month later had done 3 new child rapes

    .... I dare to say Europe hardly will need new refugees!

    (Just read about those 2 cases yesterday ... as sitting on the train)
