Germany Welcomes New Shipment of Somalis as Transformation of Europe Continues

Invasion of Europe news….

This is just a quickie follow-up to a post I wrote here on Tuesday in which I reported that European Union countries are behind in their commitment to the United Nations to take in 50,000 UN-chosen refugees over a two year period.

Oh Joy! More Somalis for dear Deutschland! https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2016/11/07/somali-migrants-smash-bistro-iron-bars/

That 50,000 is divided among most EU countries and it is over a two year period, and they are behind in their promise.

Therefore, they have no room to criticize the US which admitted 30,000 in the last year.

Germany has done a lousy job with it commitment so I guess it is making up for lost time.

By the way, the European Leftists have a nutty idea that fewer migrants will illegally cross the Mediterranean if there is a legal pathway to Europe.

Mark my words, some will take the legal route, but it won’t diminish the flow of boat people one bit!

First International Organization for Migration (IOM) International Charter Flight from Ethiopia Brings 154 Refugees to New Homes in Germany

(Just so you know the IOM had previously been a separate organization, but is now part of the UN. The US sends the IOM gobs of money!)

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Ethiopia organized on Tuesday its first international charter flight carrying 154 Somali refugees to be resettled in Germany.

If you see someone with a bag like this at an airport near you, you know they are refugees.

The group had been residing in Jijiga and Dolo Ado refugee camps in southern Ethiopia. They included 63 males and 91 females, 47 of whom are minors.

IOM has supported the German Resettlement Programme in their efforts to resettle 500 refugees living in Ethiopia to Germany since March. These efforts are closely coordinated with the Ethiopian Government’s Agency for Refugees and Returnee Affairs (ARRA), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the Federal Government of Germany.

An additional 220 refugees will depart for Germany on a second IOM-chartered flight in mid-November. The majority of these people have already undergone the necessary interviews and health assessments.

“It is important that we facilitate the smooth resettlement of refugees by providing safe transportation,” said Milun Jovanovic, Operations Officer with IOM Ethiopia. “We are happy that refugees enjoyed this facilitated charter flight from departure to destination, with no hassles faced.”

For the past 15 year, IOM Ethiopia has been involved in relocating refugees to more than 16 countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Norway and the European Union through resettlement, family reunification and humanitarian admission programmes. Since 2016, the Organization has arranged 36 domestic charter flights for refugees travelling to Addis Ababa from camps throughout Ethiopia.

In 2019 alone, IOM has assisted 4,000 refugees to resettle to new countries together with UNHCR.

EU Countries Fall Short on Promise to UN to Resettle 50,000 Refugees (over two years!)

Invasion of Europe news….

President Donald Trump admitted 30,000 refugees to the US in the last fiscal year (ended September 30th), but did you know that the entire European Union could not resettle 50,000 in a two year period!

They might argue that well, heck, we have tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands!) arriving illegally and asking for asylum, but so do we!

However, the tone of the international media is consistently anti-US, anti-Donald Trump (aka the meany), yet here is news from Deutsche Welle completely lacking in any snarky tones about European big mouth heads of state NOT MEETING their promised target of 50,000 OVER TWO YEARS!

Not surprisingly, Deutsche Welle blames the inability to get the job done on those pesky right wing citizens.

EU breaks promise of safe passage for 50,000 refugees

European governments, including the German government, have failed to deliver on a pledge to admit 50,000 refugees by this month, DW has learned.

The European Union launched the resettlement program two years ago with a deadline of October 31, 2019. But only 37,520 people have arrived in Europe under the program so far.

You need to know that the UN Secretary General Guterres is a past socialist prez of Portugal. So it is especially humorous to me to see how lousy Portugal is at welcoming refugees!

 

A spokesperson for the European Commission has admitted the target will not be reached by the end of October.

[….]

Germany was one of the countries leading the EU resettlement initiative. Last year, Chancellor Angela Merkel publicly promised to accept 10,200 people under the program. A spokesperson for the country’s Interior Ministry told DW that just 4,800 had arrived so far. He said that the delay in forming a government after German elections in 2017 had led to “complex organizational preparations” for the refugees’ arrival being pushed back.

[….]

The resettlement program is supposed to offer a safe route for some of the most vulnerable people fleeing conflict zones such as Syria and Libya. It is intended as an additional option to the right of asylum.

[….]

EU Commissioner Avramopoulos’ term in office ends on October 31, so the task of coordinating any future EU resettlement program will fall to his successor Margaritis Schinas, who has been at the center of controversy even before starting his job.

Schinas has been appointed under the new title of commissioner “for Protecting our European Way of Life” — a name which critics said mimicked the rhetoric of far-right populists, who claim immigration threatens European values.

Many political parties across Europe have made immigration an election campaign issue, taking a lead from populist parties and the far-right.

Africa Expert Leonie Jegen https://www.ies.be/user/284

Leonie Jegen, a migration expert at Germany’s Arnold-Bergstraesser-Institut, said resettlement was a divisive issue among EU countries.

“Resettlement is something that is not completely off the political agenda, but discourse around refugees has shifted in a negative direction in recent years,” she said.

Ethnic Diversity Weakens Communities Says New Study

You all know it intuitively and maybe you’ve actually seen it where you live!

Forcing ethnic diversity on communities destroys cohesiveness, causes mistrust and ultimately destroys the social fabric.

 

Thanks to reader Chaz for this very useful (and politically incorrect) report from Voice of Europe:

“Ethnic diversity not a strength but a weakness”, study says

A new peer-reviewed study by Danish academics published in the Annual Review of Political Science has revealed that ethnic diversity erodes social trust in communities.

University of Copenhagen Professor Peter Thisted Dinesen

The study, conducted by professors at the University of Copenhagen and Aarhus University in Denmark, looked to answer the question of whether “continued immigration and corresponding growing ethnic diversity” had a positive impact on social cohesion, unity, and togetherness.

In short, the study found that “continued immigration and corresponding growing ethnic diversity” exerts the exact opposite effect on society, meaning that it undermines and degrades social cohesion, unity, and togetherness.

Following a meta-analysis of 1,001 estimates from 87 studies from countries from the Western world, researchers found that there was indeed a “statistically significant negative relationship between ethnic diversity and social trust across all studies”.

One of the study’s main researchers, Peter Thisted Dinesen wrote: “To be clear, the overall negative relationship between residential ethnic diversity and social trust is statistically significant and holds up when conditioning on a range of potential confounders and moderators.”

[….]

The study’s findings run counter to the ubiquitous narrative which is constantly repeated on globalist media platforms, at schools and universities, and by EU bureaucrats – namely that ‘Diversity is a Strength’.

Germany (and Europe) Unprepared for Possible New Migrant Wave

Invasion of Europe news….

Again?

 

From Legal Insurrection:

German Interior Minister Warns of Migrant Wave Bigger Than 2015

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer warned that the country could soon be overwhelmed by a refugee wave more significant than the one in 2015.

“We need to do more to help our European partners with controls at the EU’s external borders. We’ve left them alone for too long,” Seehofer said during a visit to Turkey. “If we don’t do this, we’ll experience a wave of refugees like in 2015 – or perhaps an even larger one.”

[….]

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly threatened to “open the gates” for illegal immigrants if the European Union fails to meet his ever-increasing demands. Ankara could again use the threat to silence Europe if it wages war against the Kurds in neighboring Syria.

[….]

While Greece makes desperate calls for strengthening the border and coastal security, NGOs backed by Germany, and the EU continue to pick up migrants along the North African coasts and disembarking them in Greek, Spanish, and Italian ports. [I assume you know that Salvini, who had protected Italy for months, is out.—ed]

If financially bankrupt Greece is unable to secure its coastline, Berlin isn’t in any better shape either. Nearly a million migrants — mainly from Arab and Muslim countries — swarmed the country after Chancellor Merkel opened Germany’s borders in September 2015. The surge led to a series of deadly Islamic terror attacks and a rise in violent migrant crime.

Four years on, the Merkel-led Germany is unprepared to face a migrant wave of the magnitude witnessed last time. There were not enough trained police officers to man Germany’s border, the head of Germany’s police union admitted.

“We don’t even have winter boots,” chairman of the German Police Federation (GdP) Jörg Radek told Der Tagesspiegel newspaper.

Irish Open Borders Activists Want Ireland to Send the Navy to the Med to Pick up More Migrants

Invasion of Europe news…..

This is one of my favorite areas on which to report—the great replacement going on in Europe.

It isn’t my favorite because I enjoy writing about it, but I think it is vitally important for Americans to watch Europe as a warning to us.

Here we learn that Irish ‘humanitarians’ are pushing for Ireland to take in more Africans, Asians, and Middle Easterners.

Gotta fill those mosques! http://soerenkern.com/2013/04/02/ireland-mega-mosque/

And, they want the Irish Navy to pick up even more illegal aliens crossing the Mediterranean.  But, of course they are not offering to take in the astronomical number of migrants they have already ‘saved’ —18,000!

Presumably Italy, Malta, Spain and Greece can have those?

From the Irish Examiner,

Refugee Intake Should Double

Ireland should more than double its annual intake of refugees over the coming three years to meet its “fair share” of the projected global refugee resettlement need, a migrant umbrella group has said.

The Irish Refugee and Migrant Coalition said Ireland had taken in almost 2,600 people under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme (IRPP) in the four years since September 2015, averaging at 650 people per year.

The coalition, involving more than 20 organisations, said the UN Refugee Agency had estimated that 1.44 million people will be in need of resettlement in 2020.

Nick Henderson: Send the Irish Navy to the Mediterranean to rescue migrants!

The group said that this month was the deadline for Ireland to announce the number of resettlement places it is committing to over the next two years.

The coalition recommended Ireland commit to at least 1,500 resettlement places annually over 2020-2022.

It also called on Ireland, through the Irish Naval Service, to lead in a new Mediterranean search and rescue mission.

[….]

Nick Henderson of the Irish Refugee Council called on Ireland to lead a new search and rescue mission in the Med, adding that the Irish Naval Service had rescued more than 18,000 people.
