Infiltrating and neutralizing the smugglers’ networks should be a priority for European security apparatus.

Millions of pointless deaths because of the popes and their ideology and kings over the years. Middle Eastern religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam)… need to stay in the middle east.

People should be welcome and fed anywhere. But they should have to check their ideology and religion at the door.

The mainstream media in Poland have left us no such a possibility.

First if there is no labor shortage the immigration will hurt the existing population. At times of scarce labor immigration adds the military and cultural strength of a nation. The second problem is the Mid-East is the home of ideology s that say they are to be spread by the sward and is both intolerant and anti-democratic. The immigrants may be fleeing the effects but do not see the ideology as a big cause.

The State Department puts the official civilian death toll in “Operation Iraqi Freedom” at 176,000. Most of the dead children never appeared on Twitter, because there was no twitter in 2003. And they buried under rubble anyway. America has so much blood on its hands and there are people (sick people) who would vote for republicans AGAIN.

It is perfectly understandable that small European countries – and all European countries are small – do not and should not be invaded by endless waves of migrants of unknown character. Many migrants may be potential terrorists. These small countries – just like the small boats many migrants are coming on – are in danger of being swamped by these alien hordes. Saudi Arabia and Turkey are causing a lot of the problems in Syria – send the migrants there or to other Asian or Muslim countries. Europe must defend its cultural heritage and not be drowned in alien influxes.

His comment was most of these people have smart phone ETC and were not real asylum seekers. Presenters comments just because they have modern phones does not mean there not running for there lives. To which he replied winter is coming and the boats will stop but next year instead of 800 thousand we will have 2 million. My point is if these are mainly economic migrants then you can expect millions in the next few years regardless of the situation in Syria. So at what point do the EU nations say no more. Or do we think with our hearts and just take more and more and more.

How many of them are terrorists or sympathetic to Islamic extremists? Many. How many of them are ISIS members? I bet a lot. Illegal border crossings must be stopped.
