When Will Europe Say, “Enough”?

For years, we have watched unbelieving as virtually every Western European country has been deluged with immigrants, migrants, asylum-seekers and refugees from the Middle East and Africa. They are predominantly young, unaccompanied men and predominantly Muslim. In the name of humanity, diversity and the naive belief that they need young workers to support their welfare states in the face of their own declining birth rates, European leaders have opened the floodgates. It has resulted in a catastrophe.

Where to begin? Let’s start with terrorism. France, Belgium, Sweden, the UK and Germany have suffered serious terror attacks. More will come. Thousands of European Muslims have run off to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS.  Many have returned to Europe and are walking the streets of large European cities waiting to apply the killing skills they have learned The Molenbeek quarter of Brussels is a center of radical Islamic activity and a center for terrorists in hiding.

Then there are the common criminals. European cities, once considered safe compared to US cities, are safe no more. There are no-go zones, quarters and suburbs of large cities where non-Muslims dare not enter. Even the police and fire services don’t go unless they have strong back up.

Rapes are spreading across Europe at an alarming rate. Sweden is the rape capital of Europe, but Germany threatens to catch up. Who can forget the mass sexual assaults that took place a year and a half ago at Cologne’s Central Train Station? And the perps? Well, the authorities and the media are loathe to identify them lest they spread “Islamophobia”, but the offenders are usually men from Muslim countries. Afghanistan is the leading supplier of sexual offenders in Europe. Yet newspaper accounts refer to them as “youths” or in Germany as “Southerners”. If you couldn’t read between the lines, you would think the bad guys were Bavarians in lederhosen and funny green hats.

Every week, thousands of mostly young, single men are picked up off the coast of Libya by the Italian Navy and NGO ships belonging to organizations like Doctors Without Borders and other groups, some connected to George Soros and brought to Italian ports. They are taken in, sent off to various parts of the country, and placed in empty hotels or refugee centers until the authorities can figure out what to do with them. Meanwhile cities like Rome, Naples and Milan are teeming with migrants. The Italians, like other Europeans, are having a fit, but nobody in government will listen to them. In Milan and other cities, hundreds of Muslim migrants show up in the cellars and parking garages of private apartment complexes to conduct their prayers at all hours of the day and night.

And what can you say about Germany? Angela Merkel has taken the lead in flooding Western Europe with anybody who can show up and urging other countries to do the same. In certain cities, Germans have stopped going out at night as the newcomers have taken over the streets. German women are publicly urged to dress modestly to lessen the chance of being raped. Public swimming pools are no longer safe. Yet, as the rape victims and the murder victims pile up, Merkel plunges blindly ahead insisting, “Wir schaffen dass.” (We can do this.)

Meanwhile, in Jolly Olde England, militant Muslims create their own sharia-enforced zones, while Anjem Choudary (now in prison) and his followers promise that Britain will become Muslim and live under Sharia. Just across the English Channel, thousands of migrants are trying to smuggle their way into the country hidden in trucks.

It goes on and on; Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands-they are all trying to deal with the problem-except doing what is necessary: Close the borders.

And they have the backing of the European Union (EU), which wants more and more and more people to come and destroy their member countries-or so it seems.

Interestingly, it is the Eastern European countries, principally Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia- recent members of the EU- who are refusing to accept these people. They want no part of the insanity, and they are resisting the EU’s demand to accept their “fair share”. The EU is threatening them with retaliation if they don’t cave in. Thus far, they have not.

What is clearly needed is for the conservative opposition parties, which have been founded as a result of the immigration crisis and overbearing control of the EU, to be elected to run these countries and stop the madness. To be sure, they have risen in popularity and in countries like The Netherlands and France, are now the second strongest parties (Dutch Freedom Party and French National Front respectively). But second place is not enough. As long as the current parties remain in control in Western Europe, the protests of the people are being ignored-and in some cases met with legal action including fines and prosecution.

Europe is disappearing before our eyes, and it may already be too late to save her. It’s a shame, but at the least, it should be a lesson for America.  Immigration has until recently, been good for America, and even in Europe there are established immigrants who have assimilated and contributed to the country-as we always expected. What is happening now in Europe is something entirely different.
