The flood of illegal migrants into Europe barely paused when the Wuhan Coronavirus arrived, and has now reached unprecedented levels. Below are six articles about various aspects of the cultural enrichment of Europe.
First, from Berlin, a reminder to native Germans: don’t even glance in the direction of immigrant women. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:
What are you looking at?
Just because he looked at his wife, “Einmann” (a man) stabs 27-year-old
According to the initial police findings, the 27-year-old was on the Anzengruberstrasse at around 8.45 p.m. when the unknown man accused him of looking at his wife.
The man immediately hit the 27-year-old in the face with his fist and then injured him on the thigh and hand with a knife. The 27-year-old came to a clinic for inpatient treatment with stab wounds and cuts.
The attacker fled to Donaustraße with his companion and a child. The investigation was carried out by the criminal police of Directorate 5 (City).
The second article concerns the very expensive (non-)deportation of rejected asylum seekers from Germany. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:
Deportation madness: 300,000 euros to expel nine criminal Afghans!
From Alice Weidel [co-leader of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany)]:
A total of nine criminal Afghans were to be deported from Germany. 30 police officers were assigned to guard these few people who were obliged to leave the country. A Boeing 767 was rented, but it had to remain on the ground. Afghanistan had refused to give the plane from Munich a landing permit. Or, to put it more simply, it once again refused to accept its compatriots, citing flimsy reasons. The total cost of this insane action was €300,000!
This is not a deportation offensive, as Interior Minister Horst Seehofer recently announced, but sheer mockery of the taxpayer. A total of 30,000 Afghans are now obliged to leave the country — but only 1,000 are deported to their home country every year. In addition, Germany allows itself to be imposed on by a state into which huge sums of construction aid have been flowing for around twenty years. That would be a basis for diplomatic pressure, if one actually had an interest in deporting people who were obliged to leave the country. The opposite can be seen.
In view of the large number of 30,000 Afghans who have to be transferred back to their home country, the entire deportation practice needs to be reassessed. A charter plane at irregular weekly intervals is not sufficient, nor do the costs have to be conveyed to the taxpayer. Such machines have to be filled with people required to leave the country right down to the last seat and each expulsion has to be designed cost-effectively.
The third article describes enricher-vs.-enricher violence in Italy, a truly multicultural brawl. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:
Colorful brawl in Italy: one seriously injured person — four arrests
MONDOLFO — One event and all hell broke loose. The incident occurred at dawn near the Miu disco dinner club in Marotta di Mondolfo, in the Pesaro area, where at 9 p.m. the Metropoly of Music from dusk till dawn began. It is reported that a Tunisian stabbed a North African and a fight broke out in which a group of Dominicans was also involved. The Carabinieri who were there were also attacked and wounded in the scuffle. So far four people have been arrested.
Hundreds of drunken youths, many of whom were armed with sticks and knives, attacked each other without hesitation, including two Arma soldiers who intervened to calm the minds. A young man from Senegal was stabbed in the abdomen: his condition is serious and he is being operated on in the Marche Nord hospital in Pesaro.
An alternate title for this one might be “It Was All a Bad Dream — Go Back to Sleep, People”. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:
Sedative pill before BTW [German general elections]: Significantly fewer Islamist threats
Shortly before the general election, some tranquilizers still have to be sprinkled, such as the report about the decline in Islamist threats. In July 2018, the state security departments had 774 potentially dangerous Islamists in their sights; three years later there are only 564 nationwide. A total of 210 fewer extremists — one wonders: have they emigrated, been deported or hid; do they have a different identity, converted, for example, or classified as “mentally ill” in the statistics? Or have the criteria simply been changed and the number of threats has already been minimized?
In October 2020 , the national security authorities assumed there were more than 28,000 Islamists and estimated the number of potential threats to be 2,060. How many actually move under the radar and only later turn out to be “sleepers” will probably only be known when one can no longer even observe the trend of radicalization from behind.
When in doubt, it is said again and again: Do not trust any statistics that you have not falsified yourself.
The federal and state police agencies have fewer Islamists assessed as dangerous on the screen than in previous years. According to a response from the federal government to a written question from the FDP domestic politician Benjamin Strasser, 564 people across the country were classified in the field of “religious ideology” as so-called threats in July. In July 2018, the state security departments had 774 potentially dangerous Islamists in their sights.
In addition to the “threats”, the police are currently also looking at 529 “relevant people” among the Islamists, according to the government’s response, which has been made available to the German press agency. Their number had recently slightly risen.
The Federal Ministry of the Interior emphasized that these were still “at a high level”. All existing programs for prevention and de-radicalization should be checked for effectiveness by independent experts.
Who would ever have thought that Turks could be such xenophobes? From Tagesspiegel, translated by Hellequin GB:
“They should bugger off”
The growing xenophobia in Turkey
The country on the Bosphorus is experiencing a change of mood: Arabs, refugees and immigrants are confronted with open hostility. Why is that?
by Susanne Güsten
Arabic chants echo across the Bosphorus when the excursion boats leave Istanbul in the evening . “You don’t even think you’re in Istanbul anymore,” complains a Turkish resident of the metropolis. Families from the Gulf region stroll along the banks, Arabic is spoken on the shopping streets, and Syrian refugee children beg at the crossroads. During the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice in the past few days, the rush of Arabs was particularly noticeable. For many Turks, the festival became a turning point: the mood against Arabs turned into open hostility.
The xenophobia is directed not only against Arab tourists and the 3.6 million Syrian refugees , but also against rich immigrants from the Middle East who secure Turkish passports by buying property.
An investment of $250,000 is sufficient for the buyer and his family to acquire Turkish citizenship, and many interested parties from politically unstable or repressive Middle East countries gratefully accept the invitation. Iraqis, Iranians and Saudis are the leading overseas buyers. Prejudices and rumors about the Arabs are similar to those in Europe. “They sell 14-year-old girls as prostitutes,” says an indignant shopkeeper on the Istiklal Caddesi shopping street in the center of Istanbul. Videos are circulating on the Internet in which supposedly Arab bathers on a beach loudly chant “God is great”. Fears of foreign infiltration break out. In some cities on the Turkish border with Syria there are now more Syrians than Turks. In the border province of Hatay it has now gone so far that the Syrians feel like the masters and asked the Turks to leave the area, claims the former parliamentary president Hüsamettin Cindoruk.
Like strangers in your own city
Long-established Istanbul residents report that they feel like strangers in their own city — because of the tourists, the many hookah cafes, and because in some parts of the city there are more Arabic shop signs than Turkish ones. An estimated two million Arabs, including around one million Syrians, live in the metropolis of 16 million, according to local media reports.
He can now better understand the foreigner debate in the EU, says a Turkish academic who has spent a few years in Europe. Angry Turks vent their anger over Arabs on Twitter under the hashtag #GitmeVaktinizGeldi (time that you go). A television commentator close to the government who advocates the rapid naturalization of the refugees is insulted as an “Arab lesbian”.
The opposition has discovered the topic for itself. Opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu is calling for the Syrian refugees to be returned to their homeland, and, because of the increasing number of refugees from Afghanistan, speaks of a “question of fate” for the country. Tanju Özcan, a fellow member of the Kilicdaroglu party and mayor of the city of Bolu east of Istanbul, wants to drive foreigners out of the city with high special charges for water and sewage. It is not enough to cut foreigners city aid or refuse to set up businesses, said the local politician. “You should go.”
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was surprised by the discussion. For years Erdogan was able to rely on the tolerance of the Turks in his “open door policy” in Syria and justify the acceptance of the Syrians as a humanitarian duty.
Erdogan either missed the change in mood in the population or did not take it seriously. Critics such as Kilicdaroglu are now openly on the attack. Erdogan should fill his 1000-room palace in Ankara with Afghans, Kilicdaroglu said in a video on Twitter.
Health bomb, Italians in danger. Francesco Lollobrigida blurts out on migrants and Covid. Naval blockade
The ship Ocean Viking has accessed the port of Pozzallo to disembark 549 migrants, picked up in international waters, bringing the number of illegal arrivals on the Italian coast to almost 30,000 people. Francesco Lollobrigida, group leader of Fratelli d’Italia [Brothers of Italy] in the Chamber, comes down very hard, particularly on the authorities who impose Covid restrictions on the Italian people and then permit the disembarkation with numerous positive results already emerging after the first tests: “We had long predicted it, and unfortunately, the facts are confirming it: The emergency immigration, with the disembarkations that continue in bursts, brings with it enormous critical issues from the health point of view. We have already seen it in recent months, and the 549 illegal immigrants that disembarked this morning from the Ocean Viking at Pozzallo, thirty of whom currently test positive with Covid, certify it.”
“A situation,” continues the FdI deputy, “that can represent a real health bomb ready to explode, putting the citizenry in danger and exposing and men and women in uniform to enormous risks. An immediate naval blockade is needed so as not to frustrate the sacrifices of the Italian people. Fratelli d’Italia has been clamoring for this for a long time, and now our request cannot be ignored.”
Yesterday came the firm stance of Giorgia Meloni on the case of the NGO ship docked in Italy: “While the life of the Italian people is continually subjected to controls and restrictions, 549 migrants are given permission to disembark at Pozzalllo without any conditions. People who many times are found without documents and who are often hard to test. Sometimes due to the urgency of transporting them to reception facilities, others because they refuse. I ask the government, and in particular Minister Lamorgese: is it possible to continue with this absurdity?”
