Islamic invasion of Europe update (November 30, 2015)

Mass brawls erupt in crowded Muslim migrant shelters in Germany
Berlin (AFP) - Clashes broke out Sunday between hundreds of asylum seekers at a shelter in Berlin, in the second mass brawl to erupt over the weekend in Germany's crowded migrant accommodations.

Several people were arrested at the fight that started in the food distribution queues at the former airport of Tempelhof, which has been turned into a temporary accommodation for 1,200 refugees, an AFP photographer witnessed.

The brawl came just hours after another mass fight at a refugee shelter in the Berlin suburb of Spandau, where migrants went at each other with fire extinguishers, a police spokesman said.

Windows were smashed, sofas were thrown, and fire extinguishers emptied, said police, adding that several residents of the shelter were wounded.

Some 500 people evacuated the building "in fear and panic" over the dispute.

Separately, two other fights broke out in other shelters.

At a refugee home in Berlin's Kreuzberg area, a 18-year-old struck a 17-year-old on the head with a belt, police said.

Meanwhile, five people were injured in a fight between Syrians in the showers of an accommodation in the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt.

Such disturbances have occurred before in other shelters in Germany, with tensions escalating quickly between often traumatised people from different cultures sharing packed spaces.

At the same time, they have been relatively rare given the sheer numbers of new arrivals -- Germany expects to take in a million asylum seekers this year alone, and has put up hundreds of thousands in flats, army barracks, sports halls and tent cities.

Germany's police union had called for refugees to be separated by religion and by country of origin to minimise the potential for conflict.

Nordic countries see fall in Muslim asylum-seekers due to toughening of border control and residency requirements
Nordic immigration officials have reported a recent drop in the number of asylum-seekers arriving in the region, likely caused by stricter border controls, ID checks and tighter conditions for granting residency.

Sweden, which recently reversed its lenient asylum policies including canceling permanent residence permits for some groups and limiting the rights of family reunification, said some 6,100 asylum-seekers arrived last week, down from 8,550 the previous week and 10,500 during the second week of November.

Norwegian immigration officials reported Monday that last week's asylum-seekers fell to 969 from 2,108 the previous week and more than 2,500 a week earlier.

In Finland, the numbers also fell— to 1,600 asylum-seekers during the past two weeks, from some 4,000 during the first two weeks of November.

Slovakia grants asylum to 149 Iraqi Christians, plans to file a legal complaint against EU's mandatory Muslim migrant redistribution quotas
Slovakia is giving asylum to a group of 149 Christians who live in Iraq and are threatened by extremism.

Interior Minister Robert Kalinak says the 25 families will arrive in the country in next few days. Kalinak says that "they would lose their lives if we didn't help them."

The families will be initially placed in a center in eastern Slovakia and the Catholic Church has agreed to help them integrate into society in the predominantly Roman Catholic country.

Slovakia strictly opposes a European Union plan to redistribute 120,000 asylum-seekers among the bloc's 28 nations.

The government of Prime Minister Robert Fico is planning to [file] a legal complaint against it at an EU court in Luxembourg.

Kalinak said Monday the complaint could be filed as soon as later this week.

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is now in the business of providing living accommodations to Muslim invaders
The world-famous ensemble on Monday presented a project that will turn a former inn southwest of Vienna into apartments for four refugee families.
Organizers say a public part of the building in the village of St. Aegyd will be used for German-language courses.

The orchestra plans to pay part of the 250,000-euro ($265,000) sale price for the building from its own pocket and hopes donations and crowdfunding will account for the rest.

But the orchestra's support won't stop there. Spokesman Andreas Grossbauer says members will remain "personally connected" with residents of the home through benefit concerts and other activities.

Austria is a main destination for migrants looking for a better life in the European Union.

Germany Just Confirmed People’s Worst Fear Of The Refugee Crisis
Radical Islamist groups in Germany take advantage of the migrant crisis by offering food and shelter to refugees with the hopes of recruiting them down the line.

Federal officials recorded more than 100 cases of known radical Islamists initiating contact with refugees, according to The Wall Street Journal. They have an easy time getting through to the desperate refugees with shelters filled up and winter fast approaching.

The refugees are unaware of the real motives of the fundamentalists but get a sense of community from the mosques.

“They start by saying, ‘We will help you live your faith,’” says Torsten Voss, the head of a regional branch of the German domestic intelligence agency. “The Islamist area comes later—that is, of course, their goal.”

More than 40 people from a refugee shelter became regulars at the Ibrahim Al Khalil mosque in Berlin, known as a meeting spot for radical Islamists.

“We come here to do our Islamic duty,” 27-year-old Syrian Ali Kafri tells The Wall Street Journal. “We don’t care if it’s a Salafi or a Muslim Brotherhood mosque.”

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution warned politicians of jihadi groups’ plans back in September when the country announced it would let 800,000 refugees in.

Germany has taken in nearly one million refugees in 2015.
