“Mediterranean” Migrant Influx Cracks 70,000 for 2018, Approaching Size of British Army


Like I’ve said any number of times, it’s an invading army.

On Dec. 31, 2009, I wrote an article for the Washington Times, “Europe’s looming demise,” on the disastrous Euro-Med agreement. In it, I predicted that the freedom of movement between European Union nations and their Muslim Mediterranean partners would be disastrous: Open borders would unleash a hijrah, a mass migration of Muslims into Europe, resulting in jihad violence and, ultimately, the end of Europe as a home of free societies

The pioneering historian Bat Ye’or warned of all this in her groundbreaking book, “Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis.” She exposed the initial Euro-Med plan, showing conclusively that what is happening now is not by accident or chance. This was a deliberate scheme to outmaneuver America and make Europe into a rival superpower – a scheme that started with de Gaulle. Instead, the Europeans outmaneuvered themselves.

Breaking the story of the unthinkable immigration policies of the Euro-Med partnership which would lead to the demise of Europe, in that 2009 article I quoted the human rights group, Stop Islamization of Europe, part of our umbrella organization, Stop Islamization of Nations, explaining that in the Euro-Med plan, “Europe is to be Islamized. Democracy, Christianity, European culture and Europeans are to be driven out of Europe. Fifty million North Africans from Muslim countries are to be imported into the EU.”

In another article in Newsmax in January 2010, I wrote: “Because of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership between the European Union and Islamic states in the Middle East, by the year 2050 the Islamic population of Europe will be 25 percent to 30 percent of the total population. There will be perhaps over 100 million Muslims in Europe. The effects on European civilization, and on Europe’s relationship with the United States, are all too easy to imagine.”

In that piece, I asked: “Why would Europe get involved again with such evil, and simultaneously take in such a diabolical and disastrous immigration bomb? And that’s what this is.” Around the same time, I titled another Newsmax article, “Euro-Mediterranean Plan Will Make Jihad Attacks Easier.”

Now it is all taking place just as I had warned. My predictions became reality on Nov. 13, 2015. The jihadists identified as perpetrating the Islamic slaughter of 132 people (most under the age of 30) in Paris were from an astonishing number of European and Middle Eastern countries

Mediterranean Migrant Influx Cracks 70,000 for 2018, Approaching Size of British Army

By Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, September 18, 2018:

Illegal immigration to Europe via the Mediterranean has cracked 70,000, as a surge in migrants to Spain partly offsets the effect of tighter border controls in Greece and especially Italy.

While the number is significantly down on recent years — particularly the peak year of 2015, when hundreds of thousands of migrants surged into Europe largely via Greece and the ‘Eastern Mediterranean Route’ at the invitation of Germany’s Angela Merkel — it is still far from insignificant, with the numbers being not far off the total manpower of the British Army.

Moreover, the official UN Migration Agency/International Organization for Migration figures may significantly underestimate the true scale of the influx, as they do not account for migrants whose arrival goes undetected.

The Dutch government has previously suggested that some two-thirds of the migrant arriving in the Netherlands have not previously been registered in another EU member-state — although the great majority arrive from one — and hinted this may be deliberate.

EU member-states cannot deport illegal migrants to the last EU country they were in, and must instead determine the first EU country they arrived in or keep them. Naturally, this serves to disincentivise border countries such as Greece, Italy, and Spain from registered migrants at all.

The figures show arrivals to Italy, which had become the main entry point to Europe for illegal migrants after Brussels began paying Turkey billions of euros to stop the influx to Greece, have collapsed to their lowest level since 2014.

A large share of the credit for this is likely due to the country’s new populist coalition government, and in particular Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini, who has acted strongly against NGO ‘rescue’ ships ferrying migrants across the Mediterranean after collecting them from smuggler boats a few miles off the North African coast.

In Spain, however, the picture is reversed, with illegal migration increasing significantly following the instalment of a new Socialist Party government — partly through sea ‘rescues’ or migrant boats simply driving straight across the sea and disgorging their human cargo onto packed tourist beaches, and partly through violent, organised attacks on Spain’s land borders with Morocco, around the exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla.
