HELP FOR HEROES

EU Parliament Chief warns Europe to expect millions and millions more African (mainly) Muslim invaders.

Thereby confirming what former Libyan leader, Muanmar Gaddafi, kept warning the West about before he was overthrown by Islamic militants, aided and abetted by Britain, France, and the Obama Regime.

Breitbart  The President of the European Council has finally recognized that Europe cannot handle the massive influx of migrants crossing from North Africa into Italy and has called for measures to shut down the maritime route across the Strait of Sicily.

In a forum with Italy’s ANSA news service, Antonio Tajani said: “If the problem of Africa is not tackled, we will have millions and millions and Africans pushing (to enter Europe) and dams and walls will not be sufficient to hold them back.”

Tajani said that fixing Africa’s problems would require an investment of “billions and billions” of euros. (Any reason why they can’t migrate to the oil-rich Arab Gulf nations who so far have refused to take any Muslim refugees?)

The words of the EP President echoed recent remarks by European Council President Donald Tusk, who stated earlier this month that Europe cannot cope with the massive influx of migrants crossing from North Africa into Italy.

Ironically, Council President Donald Tusk criticized Donald Trump’s recent executive order putting a moratorium on new visas for nationals of seven particularly dangerous seedbeds of terrorism, calling the U.S. President a “demagogue” who poses an “existential threat” to the EU.

And yet, Tusk seems to have taken a page from his namesake’s recent actions, boldly proposing that the Africa-Italy route be “closed down.” “The flow of migrants from Libya into Italy and the EU is not sustainable,” Tusk said Thursday after a meeting in Brussels between European and Libyan officials.

“Europe has proved it is able to close down irregular routes of migration, as we did on the Eastern Mediterranean route,” Tusk said. “We have discussed the example of our cooperation with Turkey and other countries in this part of the region. Now it is time to close down the route from Libya to Italy.”

Populist leaders in Europe were quick to highlight what they consider the hypocrisy of the Council President, who has tended to downplay Europe’s migrant crisis.

The Leader of Italy’s Northern League Party, Matteo Salvini, challenged the EU official for his slowness to recognize the problem and his sudden about-face, which occurred just after President Trump decided to draw a line in the sand on the problem of international terrorism and its links to migration.

“When we at the League said the same thing five years ago,” Salvini asked, “weren’t we racists?” referring to accusations leveled against the League for its warnings of the dangers of unchecked immigration.

Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj, who met the press together with Donald Tusk, said that the problem of illegal migration is “something dramatic” and affects security, and social, economic and political stability.

“We must find ways to deal with all these aspects of the phenomenon,” Al-Sarraj said, noting that migrants need to be held back “in their countries of origin,” before they embark on the dangerous journey toward Europe.

“Europe has proved it is able to close down irregular routes of migration, as we did on the Eastern Mediterranean route,” Tusk said. “We have discussed the example of our cooperation with Turkey and other countries in this part of the region. Now it is time to close down the route from Libya to Italy.”

President Trump’s new administration has made it clear that the US is no longer interested in the EU’s integrationist ‘ever closer union’, writes Ted Malloch, the man tipped to be next US ambassador to the EU.

In a recent essay, Malloch declared the European integration project to be a “failure” that was evident to all. “The European Union has become undemocratic and bloated by both bureaucracy and rampant anti-Americanism,” he said.

“It may be time to re-evaluate key U.S. assumptions about Europe. This means America should reappraise its entire relationship with Europe and its future union or disunion,” he said.
