Invasion of Europe News!
The Donald Trump of Europe, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban: Migrant quota would ‘redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity.’
All along, Austria had appeared to side with the “welcoming” Angela Merkel of Germany, but it looks like that relationship has frayed with Austria and Hungary warning of the death of the EU. (LOL! Worrying about the EU? I’m thinking they better worry about the death of each of their countries and clearly Orban is!)
From the Daily Mail:
Austria warned yesterday that reducing the record influx of migrants was a ‘question of survival’ for the European Union.
Vienna has come under fire from Germany and Greece for imposing daily limits on the number of migrants that can apply for asylum or pass through to other countries.
It hosted a summit yesterday with ministers from nine countries along the west Balkans route used by migrants travelling from Greece towards northern Europe.
‘We have to reduce the influx now. This is a question of survival for the EU,’ Austrian interior minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said after the talks. Austria believes measures are necessary because the EU has failed to get off the ground any effective common response to the continent’s biggest refugee crisis since 1945.
Hungary’s prime minister yesterday called a referendum on whether his country would accept an EU plan to share out refugees that he warned would ‘redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity’.
Mr Orban said yesterday: ‘We cannot make above the heads of people, against the wishes of European people, decisions that seriously change their lives, and the lives of future generations. The quota could redraw Europe’s ethnic, cultural and religious identity. Neither Brussels nor any other European body is authorised to do that.’
And be sure to see my favorite interactive map by clicking here. Note that migrants enter Greece from Turkey and move northward every day and this map does not show those coming across the Mediterranean from North Africa (where Obama and Hillary helped create another failed state—Libya).
Yesterday no migrants entered Austria, but slide the little courser back and you will see how many thousands entered the country earlier this month.
Our lengthy archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ is here. It extends back many years because Europe at one point had plenty of time to stop the boats and safely return them to where they were launched, but leaders lacked the will to send a tough message and now, frankly, it is too late!
