Islamic invasion of Europe update (October 17, 2015)

"Sweden is fast approaching a complete collapse"
  • If the wave of migrants keeps coming, in 10-15 years, Swedes will be a minority in their own country. That there is, in fact, an exchange of populations going on, should be clear in any sober assessment.
  • The final consequence of... Sweden's immigration policy is that the economy will collapse -- because who is going to pay for it all? And economic breakdowns, once they happen, always happen very fast." -- Lars Hedegaard.
  • In the last two weeks, more than 1,000 "unaccompanied refugee children" have arrived from Germany via ferry; more than half of them have now vanished and are listed as missing.
  • For the last few weeks, the central train station in Sweden's third largest city, Malmö, has been overrun with migrants; the volunteers that for the first few days showed up with food, water and clothes now seem to have lost interest.
  • It will not be long until the Swedes realize that the state will not look after them. The country that just 20 years ago was considered one of the safest and most affluent in the world, is now in danger of becoming a failed state.

Amnesty International calls on EU countries to disregard their own security in favor of Muslim migration
Amnesty International has called European Union leaders to put refugee rights above concerns to protect their borders.

Amnesty's call Saturday came a day before German Chancellor Angela Merkel is scheduled to hold talks with Turkish officials on an EU plan that would give concession to Turkey in exchange for stemming the flow of migrants into EU countries.

Officials say the concessions would include an aid package, easier access to EU visas for Turkish citizens and speed up EU membership talks.

Amnesty said the EU should be looking for ways to "offer safe and legal routes to refugees to reach Europe."

The group said: "A deal premised on keeping refugees in Turkey fundamentally ignores both the challenges they face there and the obvious need for the EU to offer protection."

Merkel faces pressure to do more to limit the Muslim migrant influx
German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she won't offer "false solutions" to the migrant crisis as she faces pressure to do more to limit the influx.

Merkel told Saturday's edition of the daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that Germany can control its borders but not close them completely — "that wouldn't even succeed with a fence, as the example of Hungary shows."

Thousands of new arrivals a day have been stretching Germany's capacity to house refugees and other migrants. But Merkel said she won't promise "false solutions" because they wouldn't even hold for two weeks and would create bigger disappointment that the problem hasn't been resolved.

Merkel added: "I am working with all my power for sustainable solutions, and they don't depend on us Germans alone and will take time."

Hungary "temporarily" reinstates border control with Slovenia in self defense from the "mass wave of unidentified, uncontrolled migrants"
Hungary says it has temporarily reinstated border controls at its frontiers with Slovenia to prevent migrants from entering the county in an unrestricted manner.

The measure announced Saturday came hours after Hungary closed off its borders with Croatia, from where thousands of migrants a day were entering. Both Slovenia and Hungary are part of the European Union's Schengen zone of border free travel.

Since Croatia said it would start sending migrants to the border with Slovenia, Hungary fears they could try to cross into Hungary from Slovenia on their way to Germany and other European destinations.

Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said in a statement that the government was defending Hungary and its citizens from the "mass wave of unidentified, uncontrolled migrants."

A disused school in southern Sweden that was planned to house 80 Muslim migrants has burned to the ground
A disused school in southern Sweden that was planned to house 80 refugees has burned to the ground in what police say is a case of "aggravated arson."

No arrests have been made.

Ljungby town officials said the school in Kanna had been destroyed. It closed in 2011and had received a make-over to be ready to house refugees.

Earlier this month, Sweden's government has ordered the immigration agency to set up tents to provide temporary accommodation and has tasked local authorities with drawing up an inventory of all premises that can be used as shelters.

More than 150,000 asylum seekers are expected to arrive in Sweden this year.

Slovenia authorizes the use of armed forces to help police in managing the influx of migrants coming in through Croatia
Slovenia's government has cleared the way for the armed forces to assist police in managing the influx of migrants from Croatia.

Officials said Saturday the military will be deployed if there is a large number of migrants or illegal crossings. Authorities say the army would provide logistical support to the police, but won't have any authority over migrants.

Prime Minister Miro Cerar says "we are going to focus even more on safety and security and order so our country can function normally." He adds that Slovenia is a transit country for migrants and if "destination countries begin adopting stricter measures at the border, Slovenia will follow suit."

Most migrants want to go to the rich EU countries. Slovenia says it will allow in new groups after previous groups leave the country.

More than 5,000 Muslim migrants entered Croatian since Hungary closed its border
Croatian police say more than 5,000 migrants have entered the country since Hungary closed its border because of the flow of people hoping to reach Western Europe. Slovenia says it can take about half of the number per day, fueling fears that migrants could get stuck in Croatia or further east in Serbia or Macedonia.

Croatian police also said Saturday a little over 190,000 have come in from Serbia since mid-September. Most have been transferred to Hungary, but Croatia started redirecting them to Slovenia after Hungary placed a barbed-wire fence on the migrant crossing at midnight Friday.

Slovenian Interior Ministry official Bostjan Sefic says "we will accept as many migrants as we can take care of." Several hundred have entered so far, some of whom already have moved on to Austria.

300 Muslim migrants arrive at Slovenia's border
The first groups of migrants have reached Slovenia's border, arriving from Croatia on buses. Migrants hoping to reach western Europe have turned that way after Hungary sealed off its territory for them.

Slovenian police say five buses carrying about 300 migrants arrived Saturday to the border checkpoint at Petisovci. Spokeswoman Suzana Raus says migrants will be transferred to a migrant center near the border with Austria after they pass a registration procedure.

Most migrants are expected to move on from Slovenia to Austria and further on to Germany and other more prosperous countries of Western Europe.

Slovenia, a nation of 2 million, has said it wants to control the number of people coming to its territory from Croatia. It has beefed up border police and suspended regular train traffic with Croatia.
