John Bean reports
It is only three weeks ago since Germans and Austrians were greeting the spearhead of the never ending column of alleged ‘Syrian’ refugees with applause, sweets, fruits and pastries. It was, of course, part of the indoctrinated German ‘angst’ to show the world that they are nice people now, good world citizen liberals who wish to disassociate themselves from the horrors that were carried out by some of their grandfathers.
Now, those welcoming faces are missing at Vienna, Munich and other German railway stations, as the German and Austrian ordinary people see the reality of the stupid – if not treacherous – call made by Frau Merkel that Germany would welcome 800,000 ‘refugees, now more likely to be one million. Acting through the EU they expect the rest of Europe to rally to this call for European suicide.
Utilising the natural sympathy for the suffering of Syrian women and children, with BBC and ITV film editors blocking out most shots showing the preponderance of young men, it seemed that all of Britain and the rest of Europe was applauding this advance legion of would be conquerors of Europe. Then short reports started appearing in the press that first some Finns, then Danes and even French .were protesting at the invasion. Hungary led the way for recognition of the reality of what was happening. Knowing what it is like to live under Moslem rule, and being invaded three times in the past century, their Government led the resistance.
Single sentence reports on obscure inside pages began to appear that some ‘Neo-Nazi’ youths in east Germany had demonstrated against immigration and even burnt down a building that was going to be used to house immigrants.
Now, the lid is off the boiling cauldron. Although not all are reported, in many German cities rallies of several thousand people are taking place in protest at the invasion – the number of these demonstrators far outweigh those who are ‘Neo-Nazis’. A German public opinion poll now shows that support for Merkel has sunk to an all-time low. In an election, September 27, in the state of Upper Austria the Right-wing populist Austrian Freedom Party, which proposes building a border fence, won 30.4 per cent of the vote, which was double the proportion it took in 2009.
The attitude of the EU’s unelected leaders to this catastrophic effect on Europe’s people is that they “do not care about the political cost” of the crisis because they do not have to face re-election. This was stated by Dimitris Avramopoulos, the commissioner for migration, whose plan to relocate 120,000 immigrants in different countries has caused division among the EU’s lower orders. It is said that the remarks were met with astonishment by British eurosceptics.
Only One in Five is a Syrian
Even the BBC could no longer hide the fact that four out of five of this immigration surge were not Syrians ( except most of those arriving at the Greek island of Lesbos).
They are coming from all over the Middle East, plus Pakistan, and the non-stop contingents of Africans. The German police are calling for them to be separated as a result of a wide number of attacks upon Christian and Yazidis genuine refugees.
Several clashes took place between different race or religion immigrants in Kassel-Calden and 18 people were injured. A fight broke out among 200 Syrian and Afghan refugees at a shelter in Leipzig, with migrants wielding table legs and slats. After violence at accommodation in Suhl, Thuringia, this German state is accommodating refugees separately according to their country of origin.
In Lesbos it is common for Afghanis to attack Syrians so that they can steal their passports and thus minimise the chance of being rejected as asylum seekers.
Finally, my view is that we should accept Syrian refugees until the West, in co-operation with Russia, makes an all out attempt to drive out Isil. The Syrian men should be the first to go back. Why is it that those under forty are the first to push their way onto the trains? If they had the courage they would be fighting against Isil.
