Camp of the Saints: A German Perspective

Lampedusa refugees #19

Italy has 4,700 miles of coastline, all of it on the Mediterranean Sea and its subsidiaries. At the moment those bodies of water happen to be swarming with overloaded boats laden with cultural enrichment and bound for Italy. The Italian Coast Guard is struggling mightily to cope with a massive influx of migrants, none of whom it is allowed to mistreat or turn back.

In contrast, Germany has less than half as much coastline — about 2,200 miles — and all of it is along the Baltic or the North Sea, where there is little to fear from marauding Scots or Swedes.

Nevertheless, the German press, citing a European Commission report, finds Italian border controls to be somewhat lacking. Not to put too fine a point on it, the Italians are “sloppy”, and have thus brought the immigration crisis upon themselves by their own incompetence.

That’s according to an article published last Tuesday in Bild Illustrated, as translated by JLH. You’ll notice that most of the deficiencies have nothing to do with the real crisis — the flood of enrichment arriving daily at Lampedusa and other ports in southern Italy:

Italy Sloppy At Border Controls
by Einar Koch

Italy is becoming more and more a security risk for Europe. Hardly any other member state is so careless in border control!

In an internal note, which BILD has obtained, the EU commission reproves “substantial deficiencies” in connection with the Schengen information system (SIS).

In random checks at the beginning of April, the EU inspectors found the following evidence of carelessness:

  • With the arrival of flights from outside the Schengen area, third-state passengers in the airports at Rome and Verona were not systematically traced by computer.
  • The data in the police and border officials’ computers did not agree.
  • The Italian national tracing system “was not accessible, stable and error-free on any of the random checking days.”
  • The attitude of Italian authorities was “less than cooperative.”

So, for instance, the Italians impeded an unscheduled inspection of Rome’s Flumicino airport “giving as a reason official traffic” says the inspection report.

An unannounced, lightning visit of the EU inspectors at the offices near Verona was prevented by the Italians under the pretext that the delegation’s bus was not allowed to depart the district. Selected police officers could only be questioned generally beforehand by Italian authorities.

Due to an alleged computer malfunction, a carabinieri post in Verona was completely inaccessible to the EU inspectors.

Conclusion of the EU report: Italy’s border security system remains “far behind the usual Schengen standard.”

A German Perspective

As my patience with all things Muslim wears thinner than springtime ice, I am beginning to think that these internment camps most definitely need "A German Perspective".

Electric fences, barbed wire, machine gun towers, mined perimeters, minimum rations and no housing climate control could go a long way towards discouraging continued invasion by these cretins.

With any deterioration of attitude shown by the detainees, an escalation in similarity to the "German Perspective" could be employed.

Saddest of all is how this is the model that will one day arrive if the EU keeps up this nonsense. Lacking courage to make an example of a few hundreds, untold thousands or millions will suffer.

Has no one learned that any delay in paying the butcher's bill only ups the tab?

Just what Italy needs, a massive influx of Arab Muslim refugees who can't wait for the opportunity to burn Rome to ashes again. One of these days something really bad is going to happen, then maybe those people might wake up before its too late, if it isn't already.

Thanks for doing the translation to English, JLH.

This kind of discussion of the need to use intelligent systems seems to be from a kind of bygone era. In the USA, for example, there is an excellent system of easily catching the illegal alien workers called E-Verify, therefore it is not used.

Moral and ethical bankruptcy

Americans are finding a grotesque echo in the moral – ethical bankruptcy and worse of a substantial sector of American society.

The “moral depravity” of “the Arabs” who kill innocent civilians. It is more than moral depravity. It is a culture that teaches, educates and breeds hate toward other societies that are not like them as they say “infidels”.

There is no way this situation should be handled with kid gloves – when a poison strikes your body, you remove it and destroy it completely, leaving no trace of such poison.

History has shown that these types of atrocities and acts of barbarism have increased in the past half a century and getting worse by the day.

With today’s advancement in technology and telecommunications, the world has shrunk, events on the other side of the world affect everybody (like the Japanese Nuclear reactor fallout etc.) it affects our health our economy, brings fear and uncertainty to our lives.

The financial crisis we are facing today is the price we pay for years of neglect and government abuse of power.

Is today’s society heading toward annihilation, you be the judge?

The Qur'an 17:104 - states the land belongs to the Jewish people

Every time there is a terrorist act, Israel should vacate an Arab village and raze it.


In most lives, I suppose there comes a time when one has to make a supreme effort that calls for every morsel of more and more endeavor and more than not that effort has to be sustained.
