EU Migrant Quotas: Two Views From Poland

Poland, like Hungary and the Czech Republic, has recently expressed its intention not to accept any quotas from the European Union for relocated migrants. The following two videos both discuss the issue.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating these videos, and to Vlad Tepes for subtitling them.

Video 1: Miriam Shaded is a Polish entrepreneur, human rights activist and critic of Islam (see “Zero Tolerance for Islam”). She is the founder and president of the Estera Foundation tasked with bringing the Christian refugees from Syria to Poland. She was born into a Polish-Syrian family in Warsaw. Her mother is Polish, and her father is the pastor of a Presbyterian church in Warsaw.

Video 2: Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Witold Waszczykowski:

Video transcript #1:

00:00   Not letting them in, deport, punish.
00:04   Miriam Shaded, tough about Muslims.
00:08   We need to fight in different ways:
00:12   first, not let the immigrants into Europe; second, deport as many Muslims as possible;
00:20   third, all the mechanisms that are being used right now by the EU
00:24   towards its citizens, need to be used in the opposite direction, meaning:
00:28   don’t give privileges to Muslims, but give privileges to your own citizens;
00:32   don’t give immunity to Muslims, but give privileges to the citizens.
00:36   Start a media campaign and punish Muslims with
00:40   huge fines for spreading their propaganda,
00:44   for spreading hate, for hiding,
00:48   for hiding murderers, for hiding crimes. So there
00:52   we have a huge number of legal ways that we can
00:56   use, but we need to be consistent. —But also… —Also, in our country,
01:00   the courts aren’t consistent, because they register religious associations that spread
01:05   these types of hate writings, and we have Muslims
01:09   here in Poland and we have religious associations that
01:13   imitate Muhammad, who was a murderer,
01:17   a robber, and all that he was preaching was conquest of everybody
01:21   who wasn’t thinking like him, of all the infidels.

Video transcript #2:

00:24   The very concept of relocation meaning
00:28   we could, we could… this [is a] euphemism…
00:32   we could simply call the spade a spade
00:36   with normal language. It’s a concept of the forced resettlement
00:40   of 160,000 of people in a place where they mostly don’t want
00:44   to be resettled in. It’s a wrong concept,
00:48   and this decision shouldn’t be implemented today.
00:52   as long as possible… there are many levels on which…
00:56   the president of the Commission, the Commission wrongly appraised
01:00   the procedure for decision-making, then
01:04   the Commission hasn’t noticed the fact that from those 160,000 people,
01:08   only about 20,000 were resettled;
01:12   and this applies to the vast majority, or even all the countries
01:16   of the EU that haven’t implemented this agreement.
01:20   So there we can see injustice and double standards
01:24   in singling out only three countries and stigmatizing them.
01:28   On Monday in Luxembourg we will meet in the Council
01:32   of Foreign Relations. And the structural funds are not a reward
01:36   for being good, but they are an economic recompense
01:40   for the opening of Polish market, for opening a weaker
01:45   market to the influences of the richer markets of the more long-standing countries
01:49   of the EU. So this is an equalization, a recompense for the fact,
01:53   that those countries make a lot of money thanks to access to our markets,
01:57   and you cannot connect this financial, economic,
02:01   STRICTLY economic question with any kind of ideology or behavior
02:05   or other decisions in other domains.

  1. Any government’s first obligation it to its citizens, to keep them safe. And if it believes that letting other people in can do harm, the job is to keep them out. Too bad. If those people had put as much effort into keeping their country’s government functional as they do seeking welfare from the Europeans, maybe they wouldn’t have to emigrate to begin with.
    I don’t see the Arab states stepping up to help their own people. And don’t give me that racist crap. OIC anyone? Arab league anyone?

    • Well Hijra is jihad by migration and out of control breeding to conquer new land for the House of Islam. All Arabic country are already Muslim, no point to do Hijra there…

  2. Nice to see Poland standing up to the EUSSR, but, the only valid response to this EU micro-aggression against the Polish People is to trigger Article 50 and leave the EU.

    The EU response will be to undermine the current Polish government and replace them with more friendly, immigrant-hugging Polish political parties who will sell-out their country in return for the rewards of political office holding. If they must feign defeat on the refugee question; they will.

    As far as the EU is concerned Poland is, now, a province of their nascent empire and it is the function of Polish politicians to do as their EU masters tell them to; just as it was in Soviet days.

    Population replacement is the EU objective as they can’t have pesky Poles standing up to them.

  3. It looks like eastern Europe – everything east of Germany, that is – will be saved from the coming bloodbath. Hopefully the Finns too can stop the rot. Only western Europe will therefore face the full consequences of multi-culti madness. The brainwashing of the French and the Germans in particular, as well as the Brits, looks almost complete.

    • Emmett,

      I concur that most Western Europeans are sheep that have been mentally euthanized by a combination of empty, secular-materialist lifestyles.

      All that remains for them is physical euthanization via demographic replacement.

  4. Thanks Ava Lon, for making these high-quality statements from principled foreign leaders available to us.

    My ears perked up at a statement by the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs that Poland had opened up its markets to exploitative Western companies in exchange for currency compensation from the EU. In my opinion, this was a HUGE mistake, almost a fatal one. It served to institutionalize the dependency of Poland on foreign payments. The Polish people get used to cheap goods, without realizing the price paid in lost Polish jobs. The Polish government gets used to foreign payments to balance its budget. Once the situation is cast in stone and difficult to reverse, domestically in Poland, the EU politicizes the payments by making them contingent on actions not included in the original treaty. In this case, they threaten to withhold the funds because Poland won’t accept refugees. But, the EU didn’t seem to renounce the parts of the agreement opening the Polish markets.

    This illustrates the fact that any dealings with the EU are destructive, either now or later. Britain voted to leave the EU, but appears to be maintaining so many ties and bureaucratic commitments that an exit would be just window-dressing. The EU non-membership of Switzerland is a perfect example. Switzerland, in the Swiss-honored tradition of following any dollar, has bound itself to EU diktats as the price of access to EU markets.

      • Well, my intent was not to show the moral laxity of the Polish government, which is certainly no worse than any, but to draw a general principle which the US, with its hundreds of billions of Saudi subsidy in the form of treasury bonds, would do well to ponder.

  5. There’s a point that people in a lot of places don’t have much, of any, control over their government & that this would also apply in muslim nations- but if their alignment is to make whatever country they’re in “like home,” they are simply spreading that bad situation.

    If their religion tells them to establish a government that supports islam, which is the ideological cause of their problems in their former countries, then they are causing the new place to turn into the same problem the old place was. It doesn’t matter if they trust islam or not, there will still be the same problems as before.
