The Turks are at it again. What’s next? Another Greek, Armenian, Assyrian genocide? Make no mistake, this invasion is an act of war.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has called on Greece to open its borders and allow migrants to move into Europe.

On Sunday, Erdogan stated women and children have suffered the most among the refugees coming to their borders.

He has claimed the migrants won’t stay in Greece, but will move to other European countries. He added they had been warned if Turkey didn’t get EU support, he would “open the gates.”

Migrants waiting in one border city said some of those trying to cross were not Syrian and were ruining the image of refugees in Europe.

“There are a lot of people who say they are Syrian and want to leave here, but when you look at their ID, they’re not Syrian,” stated one Aleppo resident. “They’re from different nations…(and) they’re all our brothers, but it’s not right for them to pretend to be Syrian and ruin our name.”

The call to open the border came after the Greek government released a video, which they claimed showed a Turkish armored vehicle trying to pull down a border fence. The government has also claimed a Turkish police officer was caught on camera firing tear gas over the fence into Greece.
