Nero and Rome
The story goes that the Roman Emperor Nero played the fiddle while the city of Rome burned and he did nothing. In fact, he was the one who started the fire so he could have an excuse to persecute the early Church.
Merkel and Erdogan. Notice that Germany’s flag is not represented behind Merkel. This is how little respect Erdogan has for Germany.
Today we are seeing this same story play out again. Europe’s leaders have lit a proverbial fire on the continent by allowing for and encouraging massive, unchecked third world Muslim immigration to Europe’s lands. Even Europe is getting more than it bargained for, as right this moment 800 thousand people are literally teetering on the shores of Libya, waiting to cross over to Europe. Even worse, there are currently three million more coming from all across the Muslim world in a never-before-seen invasion of Europe (from Zero Hedge):
Already in November 2015, the European Union estimated — in its Autumn 2015 European Economic Forecast, authored by the European Commission — that by the end of 2016, another three million migrants will have made it into the European Union.
Nevertheless, the European Commission optimistically noted that, “while unevenly distributed among countries, the estimated additional public expenditure related to the arrival of asylum seekers is limited for most EU member states.” It even concluded that the migrant crisis could have a small, positive impact on European economies within a few years citing that “Research indicates that non-EU migrants typically receive less in individual benefits than they contribute in taxes and social contribution.”
This is the classic, politically correct denial of facts on the ground. The multitude of very costly social problems that Muslim migration into Europe has caused thus far do not exist in this whitewashed report, where the “research” indicates that migrants are always a boon. Similarly, any mention of the very real security costs necessitated by the Islamization that is occurring in Europe and the consequent need for monitoring of potential jihadists, simply goes unmentioned. One wonders whether the EU bureaucrats, who authored this report, ever descend from their ivory towers and move about in the real Europe.
Several European states have a less optimistic picture of the prospect of another three million migrants arriving on Europe’s borders than either the Pope or the European Commission do. In February, Austria announced that it would introduce border controls at border crossings along frontiers with Italy, Slovenia and Hungary. On April 12, Austria began preparations for introducing border controls on its side of the Brenner Pass, the main Alpine crossing into Italy, by starting work on a wall between the two countries.
he Austrian decision to close the Brenner pass has received harsh criticism from the EU. European Commission spokeswoman Natasha Bertaudcriticized the measure as unwarranted, claiming that “there is indeed no evidence that flows of irregular migrants are shifting from Greece to Italy”. Is Bertaud deliberately misrepresenting the issue? The issue is not whether the migrants are shifting from Greece to Italy after the EU’s unsavory deal with Turkey (they probably will) but the up to 800,000 migrants are already waiting to cross into Italy from Libya.
To have a perspective on this, three million people is the entire population of the state of Connecticut. Imagine moving that entire state’s population, in the course of one year all the way to California. Imagine the problems that it would cause. The disorder. The chaos. The instability. The tension.
That would be with two states whose outlooks, politics, and even populations are very similar within the same nation.
Europe is doing just that but with people of vastly different cultures, religions, backgrounds, and ways of life.
This a sure formula for a genocide. Or massive civil war. Or both.
