600,000 Migrants Are Lined Up Along North African Coast and Ready to Enter Europe This Summer Warns Italy

Hannah Roberts, Daily Mail (London), April 4, 2014

Up to 600,000 would-be migrants are in position to set sail from North Africa, in an onslaught on Europe’s coastline, the Italian government has warned.

Italy, with its southernmost province just 80 miles from Libya, is the gateway for thousands of clandestine migrants washing up on Europe’s shores, since the Arab Spring left swathes of Northern Africa in chaos.

More than 40,000 made the crossing last year, many on overcrowded and dangerous wooden boats. Investigators estimate that 20 per cent ultimately end up in Britain.

Italy’s Home Secretary Angelino Alfano said: ‘According to our information between 300,000 and 600,000 people are on the other side of the Mediterranean on the North African coastline, waiting to cross sooner or later.’

Speaking at a conference on immigration in Palermo he said that Italy would ‘fight’ the rising tide.

‘The frontiers of the Mediterranean are European and we must all protect them,’ he added.

In the first three months of this year 11,000 have landed in Italy, a seven-fold increase on last year, with the season for crossings about to begin as the weather improves.

The boom, he said, was as a result of the instability of the regimes in Sub-Saharan Africa and the growing strength of criminal organisations and traffickers.

At present clandestine migrants landing in the EU are obliged to remain in the country where they first seek asylum.

But southern Mediterranean counties have complained that just six or seven EU members including Greece and Malta bear the brunt of ‘boat people’ washing up on their shores.

Italy planned to use its presidency of the EU starting this year to have the rules modified so that migrants can proceed to northern Europe, Mr Alfano said.

Last year following the tragic shipwreck off the island of Lampedusa, that claimed more than 300 lives, European ministers were asked to pitch in to lend ships and aircraft to EU border agency Frontex to help stem the tide of migrants.

    Its D Day all over again, all the people involved in these invasions should just drown themselves, good Idea 70 years ago , good idea now.

  • Oil Can Harry

    This is a full-fledged invasion and I fear Europe’s spineless pols are too feckless to repel it.

    • Paulie Boy

      I wouldn’t worry about Europe. Nationalist parties are on the rise and Le Pen is seeking to unite them though making the mistake of excluding the most successful, Jobbik. European leaders speak openly of the failure of multiculturalism while americans, even teabaggers, worship multiculturalism. You would worry about the u.s., with the European-American population under 70% (only 42% of those under 18) and in demographic freefall, it’s looks rather hopeless. What would happen to an European-American politicians if he echoed the sentiments of Alfano? American “exceptionalism” even permeates this board.

    • Sick of it

      They deserve what they get until the people do something about it (including their useless government).

  • Pro_Whitey

    Those words from Churchill circa 1940 would come in handy right now. We shall fight them on the beaches . . . .
    I hope they do fight.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Forget that they will be screwing them on the beaches and then hand them their welfare cheque and housings voucher.

      • Whitetrashgang

        600,000 fat white woman need love after all.

    • Paulie Boy

      LOL, it was Churchill that lost the empire and allowed it to be flooded with third worlders, if you are pro-White I would avoid quoting the Churchill.

      • saxonsun

        He did his best to keep the Empire–the tide was against him.

        • Sick of it

          Correction – His masters were against him.

        • bilderbuster

          Hitler’s advice to Churchill: “Shoot Gandhi”.

      • Pro_Whitey

        What can I say, you have a point. I just wanted to use the rallying words, not the image or legacy of Churchill. The Brits should have gone to ground in WWII, stayed on their island, and I bet Hitler would never have bothered them.

    • wildfirexx

      It’s because of Churchill, that we are dealing with this invasion from the third world.
      Had he not declared war on Germany and Hitler, the world we be a much better place today.

      • Cobbett

        It was Chamberlain who declared war not Churchill.

      • Pro_Whitey

        You have a point. I just wanted to use the rallying words, not appeal to any legacy of Churchill.

  • D.B. Cooper

    More to come….

    • D.B. Cooper

      …and more…

      • D.B. Cooper

        …now that they’re here, YOU get to take care of them!
        This was just today. Guess how many are coming tomorrow?

        • Hallie Eva

          The first invader on the right in the front row is Somali. One can tell by the dental configuration.
          Italy, get moving now to remove these nine budding rapists waiting to hit the streets and have a go at your women.

        • brior

          Just a different rout …

    • TruthBeTold

      I read ‘Camp of the Saints’ and I knew how prophetic it was. These photos are straight off the page and from my imagination.

    • MBlanc46

      Fire a shot across the bow. If they don’t turn about, sink them.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        If I was dealing with this boat, and I had the authority to do it, I would airburst dozens of 57mm shells above it to kill every last one of them, then I would sink it with more cannon fire. Tungsten fragments would slice through them and solve the problem, as well as bring hordes of very carnivorous sharks to the scene. When word gets back to their homelands that those who try to sneak into Europe never make it there alive, they will stop coming.

  • IstvanIN

    But Russia entering the Crimea is an invasion.

    • So CAL Snowman

      I have a feeling that the Russians would know EXACTLY what to do with 600,000 african invaders.

      • IstvanIN

        One would hope.

      • trouble maker

        The Soviets built an apartment complex for the Africans they brought back to Russia to educate in the ways of Communism and the locals burned it down to show their displeasure with them being in their country !

        • Anon

          Who are “the soviets”. If the “locals” are so against such a thing they responded by burning it to the ground, obviously, you are talking about two different groups of people with a VASTLY different agenda with regard to this issue (and probably a hell of a lot more).
          This is no small thing. Answer my question and it will explain ALOT about what happened and continues to happen in Russia and its former failed empire. I’ll give you a hint. The two groups. The one you refer to as “the soviets” and the other you refer to as “the locals” are not of the same race.

          • joesolargenius

            The Soviets I referred to were members of the Communist Party and the locals were the average Russian people, I believe this happened in Leningrad.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Indeed, those two groups regard each other as implacable enemies locked in a to the death struggle.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        Russia may be our only hope. Putin, I admire. At this point if he tripped Obama and lit the American flag on fire I would stand and applaud him.

        • Paulie Boy

          Russia is the hope of Europa. Russia wasn’t isolated from the Enlightenment it was insulated from the Enlightenment, the foundation upon which the u.s. was built. Time to wake up and realize America is the greatest danger to Western Civilization.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            America isn’t the greatest threat to western civilization. The non-white hostile racial and religious aliens who hijacked it are the greatest threat not only to America, but all white nations and all white populations wherever they are.

          • Laura Dilworth

            what’s wrong w/the enlightenment?

    • RisingReich

      Yup – same way that Hitler ‘invaded’ Austria – and was met with with a celebratory parade setup by the people of Austria.

    • Sick of it

      Considering how many “Ukrainians” are ethnic Russians who welcomed them into the Ukraine, it does make the whole “controversy” seem ridiculous. Kind of like causing a ruckus about the Anschluss.

  • Kronolog

    “Italy planned to use its presidency of the EU starting this year to have
    the rules modified so that migrants can proceed to northern Europe, Mr
    Alfano said.”

    What an excellent example of European solidarity.

    • TruthBeTold

      Google: UN Population Migration.

      The UN has plans to move at-risk and desperately poor people to greener (or is that whiter?) pastures.

    • italian guy

      Alfano is a traitor and part of the controlled anti-white Italian government, no surprise there really. Notice how he never said anything about sending those people back, for these treacherous morons that’s not even an option, that tell you everything you need to know about them.

      • Grantland

        We don’t need a Hitler; we need a Ghengiz Khan.

  • JSS

    Speaking at a conference on immigration in Palermo he said that Italy would ‘fight’ the rising tide.
    ‘The frontiers of the Mediterranean are European and we must all protect them,’ he added.

    I truly hope those are not empty words. I lived in Italy for almost 6 years and the Northern part of the country is one of my favorite places in the world. 600,000 will become millions. For Gods sake the African population is set to explode in the coming the years, its not like there will ever be a shortage of them. There is only one Italy and it’s worth more then that entire continent.

  • dd121

    The question is, do Europeans have the political will to keep them out.

    • Urbane Neanderthal

      Not enough of them to counter the power of Europeans who would imprison the those opposed to allowing African immigrants

      • dd121

        It is pretty sad.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        I don’t think as many Europeans as you think are cool with this. Why would they? What is in it for them? Just like in the US most Americans don’t want unchecked invasion. It is our hostile governments that are obsessed with becoming third-world.

        • Urbane Neanderthal

          I don’t know how many Europeans are against unmitigated immigration, but I’d guess better than half, possibly 60-70%.

          But, as you say the hostile government is in favor.

          I would guess of the politically powerful, probably 60-70% are in favor of diluting the white middle class with this tactic.

          Until the government changes to reflect the majority position of the population, my statement is accurate.

    • Paulie Boy

      Meanwhile American cities are not a part of the first world and the southern border is wide open.

  • This is a war. Sink the enemies’ ships. I believe this action would be legal, but not popular with the brainwashed masses of diversity-loving European governments.

    • IstvanIN

      Certainly give them fair warning in Italian, English and Arabic to turn back, then all bets are off.

      • Alexandra1973

        Then it’s time for African Rockfish.

        How else would one deal with invasion?

        • mobilebay

          Nobody here knows. Our invasion has gone on for decades while Washington closes its eyes.

          • MBlanc46

            Not only closes its eyes, but actively encourages the invasion.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        I think tracers shells missing the bows of the garbage scows they are using to invade Europe should be the first and final warning they get. After that, if they do not stop and allow themselves to be boarded then repatriated, it will be hails of 20mm, 30mm or even 57mm shells exploding over their heads as tungsten fragments rip these invaders apart.

    • JP Rushton

      They keep coming because they know they will be let in. All they have to do is turn them away.

    • TruthBeTold

      That’s what ‘they’ are waiting for. If any violent action is taken you can be sure the EU and UN will step in to protect this ‘victims of racism’.

  • Cobbett

    Australia have got the right idea….refuse boat people entry and send them straight back…letting them stay is an insane policy.

  • RisingReich

    If you can see it coming, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, sink the ship!!!!

  • Magician

    I am just curious why I never hear anything related to conflicts and trouble caused by those African migrants in Italy. It also happens to be the closest country to Africa and also very warm.

    • captainc

      That’s because America is the new Soviet with a thin veneer of capitalism and freedom, they screen out almost everything uncomfortable. Just check youtube.

      • Ahnenerbe

        Napalm bombs works just as well

  • TruthBeTold

    Blacks can’t flee blacks fast enough to live with the ‘racist’ white man.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      I guess the welfare benefits aren’t that generous in North Africa. Who’d a thunk it?

  • MBlanc46

    Well said, Angelino Alfano. I hope that the Italians have the backbone to do what needs to be done.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    If I showed up on the shores of Sicily without papers/passport I would not be allowed to stay. African privilege at it’s finest.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      If you’re white, educated, well-mannered, and productive, you’re NOT WELCOME TO COME!

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    This is a great opportunity for political parties in Europe to use this as a platform to gain support for leaving the EU. For example a small nation like The Netherlands could have campaigns with slogans like, “can we survive 600,000 Africans in Amsterdam?” Europeans need to use this to exemplify the ridiculousness and outright threat the EU is to their nations.

    • TruthBeTold

      Unfortunately there are bigger forces at work here that want this to happen.

      I suspect they’re waiting for vigilante action so they can rush in and make it safe for Africans to relocate.

      • DudeWheresMyCountry?

        Well if not now, when? Ten years from now when 30 million more Africans are in their midst? It is now or never.

        • TruthBeTold

          I agree with you that it’s about replacing leadership. I’m just not sure how it can be done in this political climate.

          I hope parties will rise up.

          • DudeWheresMyCountry?

            Just like in the US all a politician has to do is run on an anti-immigration policy and they would light up the polls. The Netherlands, Greece and Hungary have promising movements. This is why I don’t believe the Republicans really want to occupy the White House any longer. They have been bought and paid for to finish second. Representative government no longer exists.

      • Sick of it

        The moment we start shooting these bastards, they lose. Give them too much time and they will kill us all without having to put their own lives on the line.

      • kikz2

        since the onslaught cannot be stopped……..one strategy i read about, was to pipeline them thru italy or spain into someone else’s backyard….gateway…

  • A lot of these people seem to be surprisingly fit and well dressed for being desperate starving refugees.

    Obviously such refugees know that the West has a civilizational auto-immune disease that not only prevents self-defense but fashionably relishes the demographic doom of their own great-grandkids.

    From what I understand, it is the UN refugee bureaucracy, not the US, that decides which refugees come here, so undoubtedly thousands of these people will eventually be plopped down into the US, maybe especially gifted to states that as of yet have not fully benefited from enough vibrant diversity, like Montana or Idaho.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Montana and Idaho, perhaps even Minnesota are going to be blessed with the richness these new refugees add to their community’s diversity quilt. Some states have all the luck!

      • Well said. Of course Minneapolis already has vast neighborhoods of Somali refugees bringing the greatness that is Somalia to formerly boring Western-Civilization Minnesota. With states like Montana and Idaho waiting in the wings, we don’t want Minnesotans to hog more than their fair share of rich vibrancy, especially since vastly variable birthrates will soon take care of all their diversity quilt Rainbow Nation needs! (Lucky stiffs.)

    • See my question below.

      You’re right to have noticed what you noticed and be suspicious that they’re really refugees. But there’s another more obvious factor that should jump out at everyone to prove that.

      • Perhaps you mean the craft itself, not exactly a rusting leaking rickety makeshift tub you would expect out of ‘The Camp of the Saints.’

        • kikz2

          after seeing a very spiffy craft of them a few wks ago, that was my question exactly, wtf did they get that boat?

          • Their historic tall ship was in dry-dock for more restoration work.

    • PvtCharlieSlate

      What do you call 500 lumps of vibrant diversity at the bottom of an abandoned mine shaft? A fair warning or a good start? Or both?

      • Statements like that may limit your job opportunities as a guest lecturer at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

        • PvtCharlieSlate

          This part of the discussion really got me annoyed since I am in the process of packing up and moving to the Idaho panhandle after having spent my entire life (I’m retiring) immersed in vibrant diversity. If I never get within 2,700 miles of Havaad it will be too soon.

          • Congratulations on your retirement, your wise relocation and surviving all that vibrant diversity!

      • jane johnson

        What happens when the million man march meets a million feminists?
        You get TWO million people who don’t do d_ _ _.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        A good start, but I would rather see them go to the bottom of the ocean, like the way the Soviets and the U.S. too dumped everything from nerve gas to spent nuclear reactors.

  • Spain, Italy, France, Greece have high unemployment youth numbers. So Germany, Sweden, England would be top destinations for this “migrants” if EU allows more Africans to come in. African Union is laughing at EU nations while telling them AU is doing “everything that’s possible” to prevent illegal immigration from Africa.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      Cultural Diversity is always fun to watch when it’s in somebody else’s backyard. I hope the Italians have a lot of spare cash and resources to pay for these cultural “treasures” they are about to be infested with because they’re going to need a lot of it. Should be fascinating to watch the “richness and splendor” Italy will receive by this “gift” from North Africa.

  • Whitetrashgang

    No I was talking about fat English woman, maybe French too.

  • SlizzardAjeosshi

    I think people do not fully appreciate the scale of the disaster the so-called Arab Spring was, in fact while Northern African nations were pretty much fairly incompetent thugocracies with some modest natural resources reserves to back up the local Satrap, they were efficient enough to avoid a complete nuclearization of their local economies.

    This framework allowed them to greatly reduce their local birthrate (Egypt being the exception) and to act as a check point for sub-saharian Africa. Now the cork has gone and Europe has lost the only protective layer it once possessed. All of this while Southern Europe is going through a crippling, structural economic crisis.

    To put things in perspective let’s take a look at the demographic trends that have been unfolding for Africa in the post-colonial era: in the early 60’s, at the dawn of the indipendence era, African popoulation hovered around 250 million people. After one generation it was twice that number, after 2 generations we’re above the 1 billion threshold. Yep a pure geometric series Malthusian nightmare: while even relatively mismanaged countries like Thailand, Iran, Tunisia and Brazil have cut their birth rate below the replacement level and most middle-income nations on the planet produce something inbetween 2 and 3 children per woman, sub-saharian Africa is a complete outlier in an otherwise fairly bell-shaped distribution squashed around the mean/median.

    I believe reducing the birthrate of Africa should be the main foreign policy goal of the WHOLE WORLD

  • I was going to suggest that the “west” stopped giving help and aid to Africa until they actively and harshly stopped this constant leakage into Europe.

    For a small moment there, I thought that these people would see reason to such a proposal and realise that by making their journey, they are punishing the rest of their kind.

    But then I remembered, these people could not care less about that. I also remembered that “the West” would never actually lift a finger in such a way.

    The minister sounded quite forthright for a change – “‘The frontiers of the Mediterranean are European and we must all protect them”.

    However, it was spoilt by “Italy planned to use its presidency of the EU starting this year to have the rules modified so that migrants can proceed to northern Europe, Mr Alfano said.”

    Mr Alfano, there is no point having guards at the gate to “protect the frontiers of Europe”, if you plan to open the back gates and allow them to come to Europe anyway, as long as some other mug nation takes the brunt of the theft.

    • SlizzardAjeosshi

      Being Italian and relatively accustomed to the vagaries of the local political scene, i can tell you that expecting something even remotely intelligent coming out of Alfano mouth would be akin to expecting some integrity displayed by your average investment bank board. Just to put things in perspective Mr. Alfano would make the most cretin entrants in the New Labour era governments look like the reincarnation of Aristotle, Pascal, Locke and Kant…all combined

    • saxonsun

      Ten years ago, an Italian woman I knew went back to Italy for vacation. I asked her how it was; she told me she’ll never go back because her beloved Italy had become infested with blacks. It broke my heart.

        But dey din do nuffins…so Italians, like White Americans, must support them.

        Italy has a smaller percentage than the USA. If there is any place that is infestated with knee grows, it is here.

    North Africa’s loss is Italy’s gain. All hail culcha dibersty! Celebrate it, bitchez!!

  • Notice something strange about these “refugees?”

    If they were really people fleeing warfare or something like that, then the strange thing I noticed about the photos of the refugees wouldn’t be there.

    I’ll make that a question, to see if anyone else noticed what I noticed.

    Hint: While TMA Sierrahills below noticed that almost all of them are fit and at least decently clothed, and that’s correct, and in fact a clue that they’re not really refugees, that’s not what I’m thinking of.

    • jane johnson

      All male; no women or children. Don’t look like family groups, do they?

      • Magician

        That is also what I endlessly notice. Whenever I see photos of refugees in the most beautiful and prosperous parts of Europe, they are all young and male. It is as if the governments are speficially determined to import them so they can come and have sex with beautiful native white girls while the governments fills their bank accounts with crazy amounts of free money every month for the rest of their lives. And if the native white girls ever refuses the romantic advances of a non-white male who came from a wartorn country? She will be labeled a racist.

        • kenfrombayside

          Do you think the most beautiful wimmins in the world, Norwegian females, would lay down with these third world invaders? The answer is no. Would Norwegian fathers and brothers want their woman folk to bring home a African? Again, the answer is no.

      • jayvbellis

        Invasions are always done by fit, young males. The Viking TV show has some propaganda nonsense of feminist Viking women going on Viking raids, invasions.

        No.

        Invasion
        rape
        conquest
        enslavery

        Always done by young males.

        The Black African, Islamic worlds are invading what remains of our White societies, the invasions now are the same as in the past.

        It’s annvasion.

        We need to resist the invasion.

        Feel free to sacrifice PC Liberals and idiot Libertarians, sacrifice these traitors, idiots to the invading hordes of young men.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          These invasions are being done by surplus males that are expendable bullet stoppers. That is what I see, these invaders are merely going to be the ones who catch bullets, shrapnel and other lethal projectiles that otherwise would be directed at those who are causing this invasion to begin with.

      • That didn’t take long.

        If they were real refugees from something terrible, there would be plenty of women and children. But they appear to be all adult men. Therefore, they’re colonizers and invaders. If and when they conquer territory, they’ll send for the women and children later.

        • jane johnson

          Maybe they want White wimmins.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Massive third world immigration is not sustainable. The people reserves of the third world are inexhaustible. Surely European governments realize that there are cultural, environmental and economic limits to how many foreigners from Africa and elsewhere can be imported into Europe. Their refusal to acknowledge the existence of limits and formulate a sensible population policy means that they wish to run all western civilization into the ground.

  • jayvbellis

    Can’t they include video of Paul Ryan, Rand Paul and the new Liberation Theology Argentine Pope holding a joint press conference announcing that this mass migration of Black African asylum seekers is ust great for Europe, the answer to Europe’s aging demographics, retirement benefit underfunding?
