Just in case you’ve been all wrapped up in your own particular problems of life, in Europe there are rioting refugees playing a game called ‘Leap Borders’ where Arab refugees from every conceivable area of the Middle East and North Africa, yes, MENA again, jump from one nation to the next hoping to land eventually in Germany, Sweden or Great Britain primarily and settling for France, Romania, Czech Republic or wherever they are not forced beyond the borders and finding a nation with a generous social safety net and accommodations. Hungary was the first and loudest in setting out the ‘unwelcome mat’ as we previously noted but since then there have been other nations to also decide against being welcoming to the flood of refugees. The division between those who have given the sign that they might be willing to accept some number of refugees and those nations whose basic message is ‘don’t stop here’ is the same divide that existed before the wall in Berlin fell, the former Warsaw nations are basically closed while the original NATO nations have been more generous. The one nation which has shown the greatest generosity has been Germany which has said they will accept up to 800,000 refugees and are challenging their fellow European Union nations to take the lead and share in making these refugees welcome.
There have been severe problems with refugee rioting in Greece as depicted in the short video below, as if there were not already sufficient problems for the Greeks.
Also more at the port on the Greek Island of Lesbos
Then there are the signs that Hungary has their enforced ‘No Vacancy’ sign out.
Germany, alternately, suffered from anti-fascist protesters clashing with the Hamburg riot police.
And further use of violence in Germany against fellow Germans who have a differing view than Ms. Merkel when it comes to her
open border policies. These demonstrators had police using their riot batons rather than tear gas or water cannons.
Germany even got a small flavor of what is otherwise a problem only in the Middle East as blood flowed on the streets of
Frankfurt as Turkish and Kurdish protesters assaulted each other and the police attempted to control the skirmish.
And more of the same Kurdish-Turkish violence with the police caught in the middle.
These are but a scratch of the scratch on the surface as one can find many videos on-line depicting the violence both visited upon the refugees and by the refugees. The one trend we have found is that a large percentage of the refugees who are rioting are males who have mostly threatened not just police but also any natives who may object to their trampling their yards or other disgraces and insults. On the other hand, much of the news coverage has shown pictures of families with husband and wife with a number of children and often these people are well educated often with degrees and claim they simply desire to use their education and restart their lives. Additionally we are told that these refugees are coming almost uniquely indirectly from Syria where their lives have been demolished and they truly have nowhere to turn for help. The media picture is so perfect but over the past week it appears the media began to notice that their line was not holding validity as they had desired. Just a few decades ago our entire presentation of the carnage and rioting would have been the media line that these are all families and not hordes of young, military-age young men most without family and all proudly demanding they be accommodated and how they are in Europe to make changes and have the Quran swallow-up the Bible and have all knees bend to Allah and face Mecca five times a day. But be prepared for pictures of scenes like the below.
The above is far from the only sympathy inducing, heart grabbing, tear inducing and soul touching image which all started with a picture of one small child who had drowned and washed up on the shoreline of a Turkish beach. Within an hour of the child’s picture being placed on-line it had gone viral and were trending as the top image for the next day to day and a half plucking the heartstrings world-wide. This was parlayed into the insisting that Europe open its borders and take in as many refugees as were to be sent their way. Previous to this recent inundation there had been a steady stream of immigrants entering through Turkey and Greece heading for Germany or Great Britain as well as rafting to Italy and heading generally north to north-west heading for France. Now there are throngs of people streaming across all of Europe showing total disregard for any laws such as the law requiring one to register with the initial country whose borders one crossed to enter into the European Union nations. Of course this as well as tracing the paths taken by these refugees has been made next to impossible as so many laws are being broken the European nations will have plenty of problems even discovering all of the refugees which settle in their nation.
There has been one fact which has appeared to be omitted to the discussions, namely, why haven’t the wealthy Arab nations taken in even a token number of refugees. The Saudis offered to build two-hundred mosques in Germany. Despite the trillions of dollars that Saudi Arabia and the other oil fiefdoms have accumulated, they do not appear to be all that enthused about opening their borders and taking in some of their brothers and sisters or do they know something that Europe might wish to know as well. Perhaps the Saudi Royal Family knows that the pictures are not depicting an honest portrait of the people breaking across all of the European borders. But the Saudis are fully aware that should they be permitted to build and place Imams in two-hundred mosques that they will have a deeply entrenched propaganda center where only Wahhabis views, prayer books, CD’s and other media as well as controlling the services each thus producing all Wahhabis patrons attending the services at the mosques they build.
The problem comes when the media misleads the public and then against the self-preservation of the public. Often those demanding that the illegal refugees be granted citizenship on an ad hoc based solely on fulfilling their drive to produce a desired result, laws and reality be damned. Their desire is to get huge numbers of refugees accepted into their nation and placed in homes or camps or whatever, so long as they do not pose any inconvenience to the high and mighty. After all, one must keep the refugees far from the precious elite. The drive of the uber-leftists does not worry about the pesky little details like housing and shelter, including the Saudis who simply made the generous offer to build mosques. This is the same tune time and again, the leftists desire to be given the accolades while the rabble and the riotous noise is kept from their doors and away from where they shop and take their restive tea breaks every afternoon. After all, these are the elegant ones, the people of great moral convictions, just as long as they are not put out or have to wade through scenes if rioters. These uber leftists are in favor of any and all core beliefs just as long as they are spared any consequences, except for the few who also give aid to the refugees. In this case, they do community work in an effort to back their slogans with actions. They are the true believers and are to be lauded as they give and back all with actual participation and acts of kindness and make a real effort to improve the world around them and everybody else. That is the faith and credit one must give such people. Seeing videos or pictures of such people assisting when nothing was asked of them, especially saving people facing physical threat is absolutely going beyond the sake of courage and always worth noting.
Some people make living each day a bit more inclusive and such an assortment of joys and promises there is in one whose love and selflessness allows them to pour out their hearts daily taking strength from their acts they perform and appear indefatigable in all that they perform. Should the world ever be blessed with an abundance of such people almost every problem of the world will be solved in quickness beyond all expectations.
