‘Arrogant’ Merkel defends signing highly criticised UN migration pact

Merkel, unwilling and stubborn as ever, is how one could describe her speech. She simply dismissed all criticism of the pact as being based on false information.

“Now all know, that illegal migration in part causes great fear in our nations. These fears are now used by opponents of the pact to disseminate false information.”

An arrogant statement, to find its equal insinuating governments of countries like Hungary, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Australia, Israel, Chile, Italy, Latvia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and the United States are just not smart enough to read the paper.

The Unites States, in particular, warned countries from signing the pact as it would lead to a loss in sovereignty. Austrian Chancellor Kurz shared this position, cited problems of mixing asylum with migration in this pact as his reasons of not signing it.

Not even a politician from Merkel’s own party was able to give her pause not to sign the pact, calling it an act of treason. Around 150 countries ratified the UN migration pact in Marrakech.




Council to look at making decorations more “diversity” friendly

A councillor in Victoria, Canada has succeeded in securing a review of the city’s Christmas decorations after he expressed concerns that things like Christmas trees were not secular enough and needed to be more ‘diverse’ because they may offend Muslims.

Coun. Ben Isitt has won support for the inquiry, which will look at “further secularizing or increasing the diversity of cultural elements in seasonal decorations,” reports the Vancouver Sun.

Isitt’s demands were triggered after a poinsettia, a red floral display typically seen at Christmas, recently appeared on his desk at Victoria City Hall.

“I don’t want a poinsettia. It is a symbol of the Christian faith,” he complained, adding that the city’s main sequoia tree should not be lit up and turned into a Christmas tree because that is not “inclusive” enough and may offend Muslims.



Another migrant murder? Afghan suspected of murdering 16-year-old Austrian girl

An Afghan migrant is the main suspect in the murder case of an Austrian teen. The girl was found murdered by her mother in her room yesterday evening.

The 16-year-old was in her mother’s apartment in the district of Münichholz. She had a visit from her boyfriend, a 17-year-old Afghan citizen.

When the mother went to look for her daughter at about 11 pm, the door to her room was barricaded with a box.

The girls mother did eventually get into the room where she made the horrific discovery of her murdered daughter.

According to the LPD Linz, the suspect is Saber Akhondzada. The Afghan killed the teenager in her own room with several stab wounds.

The migrant fled and a large manhunt has started. The search for the 17-year-old suspect has been unsuccessful so far. The Afghan is 174 centimeters tall, slender with black hair and brown eyes.

According to police, he has conspicuous epidermis on the left cheek, right neck and right upper lip.



Hungary rejects ‘UN Refugee Pact’ pact as well: “It creates a security risk we cannot tolerate”

As it has done with the United Nations’ migration pact, Hungary rejects the organisation’s global refugee pact as well, the foreign minister said on Friday, arguing that the document was dangerous and could encourage more migration.

Simultaneously with its Global Compact for Migration, the UN has drafted a “sister document”, the Global Compact on Refugees, Peter Szijjarto told a press conference. This pact, he said, was about “bringing in through a back door whoever they can’t bring in through the main gate with the migration pact”. Though this package is about refugees, there have been a number of debates recently about “how they can try to classify as refugees those who arrive as illegal migrants”, Szijjarto said.

Over the recent period “we have had plenty of debates with UN bureaucrats on who can be classified as a refugee. We are well aware that what we are facing is an illegal migrant crisis rather than a refugee crisis,” he said.



Latvia rejects UN Migration Pact and deals another blow to pro-migration forces

On 6 December, the Latvian Parliament (Saeima) has voted to reject the signing of the United Nations Global Compact for Migration.

The debate was lengthy but Saeima, having been given autonomy over the decision in the cabinet, voted 43 to 31 to reject signing the Compact.

Latvia, like the US, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria and Switzerland, has rejected signing and objected the document.

Estonia and Lithuania will both not sign the declaration, however they will voice support for it at the Marrakech summit. The Latvian cabinet has stated that it will follow the result of the Saeima’s advisory vote.



Migrant sex attacks on European women are motivated by religion – Swedish MP

Swedish politician Hanif Bali said it’s time to call migrants’ sexual assaults of European women what they are – ethno-religiously motivated crimes

In a series of tweets, MP Hanif Bali raises the subject of gang rape, and points to the perpetrators and victims.

Bali believes it’s time to start talking about “ethno-religiously motivated rapes” since 88 per cent of perpetrators who commit serious sexual assaults in Sweden and other European countries,

have a migrant background, while the victims are mainly young white girls.

A citizen study on sexual crimes made in autumn 2017 confirms what Bali writes:

Men of non-European descent commit 84 per cent of serious rapes in Sweden. Afghans, Iraqis and Somalis commit the most rapes. Two out of three serious rapes are committed by asylum seekers or men who have been granted residence permits.

95.6 per cent of assault rapes are committed by men of foreign descent.

The question he raises is why the Swedish authorities don’t act vigorously to protect the country’s girls and women from the ethno-religiously and racially motivated serious sexual violence.



Italy: Around 2,000 Migrants Expected To Leave Every Month Under Tougher Rules

Around 2,000 migrants are expected to leave Italy per month as humanitarian residency permits expire, following the passage of the migration and security decree drafted by populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

The new migrant and security decree, which is set to come into effect in January 2019, scraps the humanitarian residency permit. Those currently living in Italy with the humanitarian permits will not be able to renew them and face deportation instead, Il Giornale reports.

The law will also affect those currently in the waiting process for the residency permit as they will find themselves labelled as illegal migrants and will be given two weeks’ notice to leave the country.

Of the total number of asylum seekers who have requested asylum with the Protection System for Asylum Seekers and Refugees (SPRAR), around 33 per cent have requested or obtained humanitarian residency permits that were previously renewable on a two-year basis.

By the end of 2020, an estimated 32,000 migrants are believed to be affected by the changes and see their residency revoked.



Austria to cut benefits for immigrants with poor language skills

Foreigners who have moved to Austria but have not yet picked up the language are set to be hit by a controversial reform to the country’s social welfare system, as the Right-wing governmentsteps up its efforts to deter immigration.

The plan presented by the Austrian government last week will penalise the unemployed by cutting €300 off their monthly dole payments if they do not fulfill certain language requirements. The government says that the money will instead go towards providing compulsory German classes.

Drawn up by the far-Right Freedom Party (FPÖ), the reforms would target immigrants and ethnic minorities in several ways. Foreseen is a sizeable cut in welfare payments to families with more than two children - a measure likely to particularly affect migrant families. Local authorities will also be compelled to tell the government how many welfare recipients in their region are from ethnic minorities.



Almost 80% of French don’t want to accept more migrants, according to new opinion poll

According to an opinion poll on immigration conducted by Ifop, in partnership with the Jean Jaures Foundation and the American Jewish Committee, 52 per cent of French men and women believe that France welcomes “too many foreigners”.

A further 27 per cent believe that France welcomes “enough”, meaning that a total of 79 per cent of the country’s citizens believe that France should not welcome any more immigrants.

The poll, which was published in the weekly Journal du Dimanche, also revealed that 64 per cent of respondents agreed with the statement: “our country already has many foreigners and welcoming additional immigrants would be undesirable”.



Chain Migration: 60 Percent of ‘Retired’ Migrants In Italy Have Never Worked

According to figures on non-EU citizens in Italy, around 60 percent of “retired” migrants have never worked.

Approximately 96,000 non-EU migrants currently receive a pension from the Istituto Nazionale della Previdenza Sociale (INPS), Italy’s social security agency. Of those, an estimated 60,000 do not have their pensions covered by prior contributions because they had not worked and paid taxes, Il Giornale reports.

Around two million foreigners are enrolled in the INPS system in total, with 1,700,000 of those being employed and making contributions to their retirement.



Migrant arrested for planning to poison Italian public water supply

A Palestinian migrant was arrested on Wednesday morning for planning to poison a public water supply.

The man, who has an Italian residency permit, was captured in the city of Macomer.

A Palestinian national, the 38-year-old suspect was arrested by the Italian police in the Sardinian town under suspicion of planning to poison the island’s public drinking water supply.

 He had been under surveillance for a lengthy period of time until the police moved in to arrest him on Wednesday.

The town, with a population of 10,000, was on lock down by the security services and they swiftly arrested the suspect as he left his home.

A judge granted security forces permission to immediately undertake the urgent operation due to the severity of the risk.



Sweden: Women Raped, Authorities Too Busy

  • According to Mikaela Blixt, after a man attacked her in the street and tried to rape her, the police did nothing, even though she knew where her attacker lived and could easily have identified him.
  • The Swedish mainstream media outlet, Expressen, wanted to interview Blixt, but, according to her, only on condition that she not mention that her attacker was an Afghan migrant.
  • Not only women, but almost one out of three Swedes, do not feel safe in Sweden, according to a new poll that asked 6,300 Swedes how safe they feel in their homes and communities.
  • It is curious that the Swedish police not only have sufficient resources to charge people who attend peaceful demonstrations, but also people who allegedly commit thought crimes.



“I prefer to welcome migrants than to have children,” French woman tells newspaper

Concerning the topic of ‘climate change’, French leftist newspaper Liberation asks its readers how to respond to it.

The newspaper, citing climate warnings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, says some people denounce “too much population on earth”.

According to Liberation some women and men have decided to turn their backs on maternity and paternity. Or on the contrary, refuse to make this choice.

 After asking its readers, one French woman says she prefers migrants over children:

“Personally, I do not envision children in my life. I do not like them, but I do not hate them. The environment is a factor that confirms my choice.

“There are so many people who migrate because of climate change and, at the same time, we are told to continue to procreate, particularly for pensions. I prefer to welcome migrants than to make children with an uncertain future and who will consume again and again.

“Children are a financial and energetic sink. When I meet people, I try to clear the situation quickly by saying that I do not want them. I do not see myself changing for someone, nor to put my career on hold.”



Iraqi refugee accused of raping teenage daughter of German businessman who hired him

An Iraqi refugee is accused of raping a teenage girl in Germany, news outlet Rheinische Post (RP) online reports.

The 22-year-old rapist came in contact with the girl after her father hired him for a job. The father wanted to support Germany’s refugee community by helping them integrate into the labour market.

According to RP the young girl was raped after accompanying the refugee to his apartment. Her father trusted the man, but that was a terrible mistake.

After they drank alcohol with another man, the Iraqi raped the girl after the man left. The incident happened on 29 October. Immediately after the incident, the young woman went with her parents to the police and reported the rape.

“This is very dreadful. That was a person whom I trusted. “The event was horror for us,” the father said. He feels a great helplessness, “especially as it was a person who was so trusted.” The man’s teenage daughter has sleeping problems and suffers

from panic attacks.



Brussels Officials Ordered to Avoid Public Park After Slew of Migrant Attacks

Government employees have been ordered to avoid walking near a Brussels park during their work commute after a slew of robberies and attacks by migrants in recent weeks, according to local media.

Since October 1st, at least seven public workers have been ambushed while passing through Maximilian Park en route from a nearby transit station to the Flemish Administrative Center, Der Standaard reports.

"Given the current social context and the dark days, it is best for your safety to avoid the Maximilian Park and to focus on well-lit main roads," civil servants were advised, according to SCEPTR.



Hungary Attacks UN Migration Compact for Attempting to ‘Legalise Illegal Immigration’

Hungary’s foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has condemned the UN Migration Pact for attempting to “legalise illegal immigration,” announcing his country will vote ‘no’ on the agreement in Marrakesh in December.

Mr Szijjártó told media on Thursday that “The goal of the UN Global Compact for Migration is to legalise illegal immigration, which is totally unacceptable and violates the sovereignty of member states, including that of Hungary.”

“The UN is making the same mistake as the European Union, which wants to base its own migration policy on mandatory resettlement quotas,” he continued.





Austrian Chancellor blames Muslim migration for rising anti-Semitism in Europe

Speaking at an anti-Semitism conference on Wednesday, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz blamed Islamic migration for the rise of incidents against Jews in Europe. 

“You should only let as many people immigrate in a country as many as many you are able to integrate. So, I think that a not-registered, and not-organised flow of immigrants can always be a problem for a country,” Kurz said in Vienna.

“And especially a strong flow of immigrants coming from Muslim countries can cause troubles like a different understanding about Israel or anti-Semitic ideas, which we would not like to have in our societies,” he added.




Sweden has seen a surge in recorded cases of sex assaults since 2013, with many linking the rise to increasing numbers of migrants entering the country.

According to Criminal statistics agency Brå, the number of adult women reporting that they had been sexually assaulted rose from 4.7 per cent of the population in 2016, to 6.4 per cent in 2017.

“Between 2006 and 2012, the level was relatively stable, but since 2013, the proportion that claims to be exposed to sexual offences has shown a clear increase,” stated the agency.

This debunks claims made by some leftists that Sweden’s rape and sexual assault rate is so high due to a definition change in 2012, since reported rapes and sexual assaults continued to rise after this date.

Brå also previously found that the number of reported cases of rape had rise by 10 per cent from 2016 to 2017.

As we previously reported, new figures released in August found that 58 per cent of convicted rapists and 85 per cent of all convicted assault rapists in Sweden were born outside of Europe.



‘Allahu Akbar’: Brussels Policeman Stabbed in Neck as France’s Macron Visits City

A police officer was stabbed in the neck in front of Brussels’ main police station on Tuesday morning – with claims the attacker was an Islamist shouting “Allahu Akbar.”

The attack took place on the second day of a state visit to Belgium by French President Emmanuel Macron, and shortly before he is due to visit the infamous terror-linked neighbourhood of Molenbeek.

The police officer is said to be in a stable condition and his injuries are not life-threatening.

An attacker stabbed the officer outside the central police station at 5:30 am local time, police spokeswoman Ilse van de Keere told the AFP news agency.

“A police officer was stabbed and slightly wounded” and taken to the hospital, she said. “His colleagues retaliated by firing shots at the attacker who was subdued,” but he also did not sustain life-threatening injuries.
