Migrant Crisis-Hit Italy Sees Half of Citizens ‘Feel Like Strangers in Their Own Country’

People across the West increasingly feel like they are “strangers” in their home countries, with Italy leading the pack.

Ipsos Mori research, cited by Chatham House fellow Matthew Goodwin, notes that some 49 per cent of Italians — who have borne the brunt of the migrant crisis recently — agree with the statement: “These days I feel like a stranger in my country.”
Since an expensive and not always entirely effective deal between the European Union and Turkey brought the so-called Eastern Mediterranean Route into Greece under some semblance of control, Italy found itself becoming ground zero for the migrant crisis.Tens of thousands of boat-borne illegal migrants  — transported by people-smugglers linked to terror groups and organised crime, aided and abetted by EU and EU member-state ships, as well as so-called “rescue” ships operated by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) — began travelling to Italy.
Initial landfall is often made on islands such as Lampedusa and Sicily before onward travel to the mainland and northern Europe. The former is reportedly in a state of near collapse, while the latter has seen ultra-violent heroin and prostitution gangs taking an increasingly tight grip on its nightlife.
Research in September 2017 found that seven Italians in 10 think the country has too many migrants, while recent regional elections in Sicily saw eurosceptic-leaning, populist parties oust the establishment Democratic Party with a huge majority.
The U.S., which absorbed roughly 300,000 to 400,000 illegal migrants a year under the Barack Obama administration, according to Centre for Immigration Studies estimates, was not far behind in Italy, with 45 per cent agreeing that they now feel like strangers.
Belgium, the seat of many of the European Union’s major institutions and power bases, was next on the list, at 44 per cent. The national capital of Brussels — which is often regarded as the capital of the European Union as well — is home to infamous Islamist enclave of Molenbeek, a popular bolthole for terrorists which often finds itself under something resembling military occupation.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the countries on the bottom of Goodwin’s list with the lowest number of people who feel like strangers in their homelands are Israel, on 20 per cent, and Japan, on 14 per cent.
Both maintain a robust sense of national identity, strong border controls, and are strict about who they admit and who meets their standards for naturalisation.

Soros-Linked NGO Demands EU Accept 540,000 Migrants From ‘Poor Countries’

European Union (EU) nations should take more than half a million refugees currently living in third world camps, according to an open borders NGO with close links to globalist billionaire George Soros.

In an interview with EUobserver on Monday, Chairman of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) David Miliband said Europe has two choices: accept massive illegal immigration, or create routes enabling the world’s poorest people to migrate legally.
The former British foreign secretary announced he is pressing Brussels to resettle 540,000 refugees in Europe over five years, a number far larger than the 50,000 migrants the European Commission announced in September is to be delivered to EU nations from Africa over the next two years.
“The point is that the vast bulk of refugees are in poor countries, not in European countries,” he said, noting that most are living in camps close to their homelands.
Speaking at a Guardian Live event promoting his new book on Sunday, Miliband told the audience: “We rescue refugees, we rescue ourselves.
“Either [Europe] stands up for its values and its place in the multilateral system or it sees the system whither around her,” he said.
The IRC chief’s intervention into the debate over third world migration to Europe comes as left-wing political donor George Soros accused the Hungarian government of lying about him in its national consultation on immigration.
“The statements … contain distortions and outright lies that deliberately mislead Hungarians about George Soros’s views on migrants and refugees,” said a statement issued by the billionaire financier’s Open Society Foundations.
Hungary’s assertion that Soros wants Brussels to resettle at least one million immigrants per year onto European Union territory was marked “false”, in the statement, which pointed to an op-ed penned by the arch-globalist last year, which said the EU should make a “commitment to admit even a mere 300,000 refugees annually”.
But this fails to take into account the vast amount of money spent by Soros on NGOs and other organisations working to promote open borders for Europe, and helping migrants reach the continent.
The IRC is one such organisation, not only receiving funding from the Open Society Foundations, but was also selected by Soros as one of the bodies working to “create principles” guiding the Hungarian billionaire’s $500 million “investment” in migrant-related initiatives that he announced last year.
As Breitbart London reported in September, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán denounced the mass migration agenda aggressively pushed by Soros’s “Open Society” network as a means to eradicate Europe’s cultures and Christian identity.
“The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies,” Orbán said, stating that the network aims “to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration”.
Earlier that month, Soros transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations to ensure his activism  — which, as well as seeking to tear down borders in Western nations, also aims to disempower police and “mobilise” ethnic minorities against the interests of indigenous Europeans  — continues after the 87-year-old’s death.

Migrants Paying People Smugglers for Luxury ‘All-Inclusive’ Travel to Spain

People smugglers in Morocco are now offering African migrants an “all-inclusive” smuggling package which includes a flight to Casablanca and passage to Spain.

Despite the slowdown of the Libyan migrant route, people smugglers have continued to operate their businesses by switching to different migrant routes. Now, according to a migrant from Cameroon, they are offering “all-inclusive” luxury smuggling packages to get migrants into Europe from Morocco. Die Welt reports.
Cameroonian Patou Sedrick, 32, a migrant who now works with migrants in Tangier, said that smugglers charge 4,500 euros to West African migrants for their “luxury package”. The deal involved a flight to Casablanca, private accommodation, and a trip to the Spanish mainland.“As soon as the refugees have arrived on the Iberian peninsula, they will give notice at home and the money will be paid,” Sedrick said.
“Think about it, with several hundreds of refugees you can earn more than a million euros in one day,” Sedrick added and noted that with that amount of capital it was easy for the smugglers to bribe officials.
“It’s really unbelievable, these many refugee boats have not existed for a long time,” he said adding: “They leave from all parts of the Moroccan coast.”
Experts believe that the scale of the human trafficking operations must be operated by international mafia groups. They single out Guinea as a particular hub for organised criminals who import drugs from South America and smuggle them to Europe.
So far this year, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimates that 18,000 migrants have arrived in Spain. While many have flooded into the North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla, an increasing number have made the sea crossing to the Spanish mainland.
In August, authorities picked up 600 migrants off the coast of Spain in one 24-hour period alone.  In other incident, migrants were caught on film storming a beach packed with tourists on the coastal city of Cádiz.

White Candidates Banned from Applying for Job at BBC, Where Ethnic Minorities Already Over-Represented

A job advert offering “an exceptional and unique opportunity to train as a broadcast journalist” at the BBC says it is only open to non-white applicants.

Posted to the jobs section of w4mp  — the Westminster political, media, and lobbying jobs portal  — on Tuesday, the advert states plainly that the year-long, paid internship at the BBC World Service is “only open to candidates from a black, Asian or non-white ethnic minority background”.
The advert was placed by Creative Access, a registered charity which  — as previously reported by Breitbart London  — offers highly desirable, paid internships at top media companies, from which white people are excluded from applying.

“We help young people, from under-represented communities throughout the UK, to access creative careers,” says the organisation on its website. “Our vision is that in the longer term, our interns will progress to management positions, and in turn bring in others from under-represented communities in alongside them.”
Far from being underrepresented, the BBC’s Equality Information Report for 2017 showed that black and minority ethnic (BME) people make up 14.5 per cent of the corporation’s workforce, while comprising less than 13 per cent of Britain’s population at the 2011 census.
While the BBC claims the drive for greater diversity is to ensure its workforce “reflects the UK”, the company has committed to engineering “a workforce at least as diverse, if not more so, than any other in the industry”.
To this end, it promised that by 2020 at least 15 per cent of its staff will be non-white, and that eight per cent will be LGBT, while the latest ONS data shows around four per cent of people in Britain identify as LGBT.
Under the Equality Act 2010, it became lawful for employers to engage in “positive action”, which Citizens Advice describes as taking “steps to help certain disadvantaged groups access employment or training”.
The law enables companies to assist “people with a particular protected characteristic overcome their disadvantage – for example, by offering internships or placements … [or] by reserving places on a training course”, according to the website.
Situations in which Citizens Advice says employers are allowed to take positive action are if a group is “disadvantaged in some way in relation to work”, if their “participation in employment or training is particularly low”, or if people in the group have “particular needs which are different from other people who don’t share their protected characteristic.”
It is unclear which of these boxes, if any, offering internships at the BBC only to non-whites ticks.
Announcing it was handing £4 million of taxpayers’ money to Creative Access in 2014, the government said that some of the sum will fund training bursaries for “traditionally underrepresented employees and freelancers working in the creative industries including black, Asian and minority ethnic groups”.
How “traditionally underrepresented” is defined, in a country where mass immigration from the third world is a very new phenomenon, was not made clear.
Breitbart London approached the BBC for comment, but they had not chosen to reply at the time of publication.

6 Syrian Refugees Busted in German Christmas Terror

 
Open borders will kill you. It's just a matter of time. And a matter of migrants.
Meanwhile Muslim migrants in Germany have once again targeted a Christmas event. And yes, they're those precious Syrian refugees who make lefty bleeding hearts go pitter patter.
German police have arrested six alleged ISIS plotters amid fears they were planning an attack on a Christmas market on the anniversary of last year's atrocity in Berlin.
The Syrian men were arrested during raids involving 500 officers in the towns of Kassel, Hannover, Essen and Leipzig.
Prosecutors say they were plotting a co-ordinated attack using 'weapons and explosives'.
On the same date last year, Tunisian ISIS fanatic Anis Amri hijacked a truck to murder 12 revellers at the packed Breitscheidplatz Christmas market. 

And numbers, in Islamic terror, tend not to be a coincidence.
The six suspects were identified as Syrian citizens aged between 20 and 28 who arrived in Germany as asylum-seekers between December 2014 and September 2015. Their names were withheld under strict German privacy laws.

Danke schoen, Frau Merkel.
Christmas markets have been a special target of Muslim terrorists.
On the 5th of December, a 12-year-old Iraqi boy planted a nail bomb in a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen. The Muslim boy left the nail bomb in a marketplace filled with jolly plastic Santas bearing knapsacks of presents and booths full of chocolates built like cottages covered with twinkling lights. Inside was his Christmas present to the little boys and girls of this German city, a glass jar filled with powder and surrounded by nails. Islamic terror had come like a bitterly cold wind from Iraq to Ludwigshafen.
The aspiring Muslim serial killer has already become known as the “Kindergarten bomber.”
Now a truck smashed into the Christmas market near the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church crushing shoppers into a stand selling mulled wine. Visitors to the nearby Berlin Zoo picking out Christmas gifts or treating themselves to hot chocolate fled from the murderous carnage. Red fluid flowed through the market and the terrified crowds could not tell whether it was spilled wine or the blood of the dead.
This latest Muslim Christmas present took the lives of twelve men and women who might have otherwise picked up some eggnog or a stuffed reindeer. It injured dozens more who went from munching waffles one moment to watching a truck barrel at them through the Christmas market in another. Its back wheel stopped against a market stand boasting of the Magic of Christmas.
They only to get it right once. We have to get it right every time or this happens. Either that or we start rethinking open borders.

Armed Police to Escort Joggers in Swedish City for Protection

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging.

Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark. Karlsson, who came up with the idea for the programme, said police would form jogging groups and all those who were interested in joining the officers were welcome, SVT reports.
“We will adjust the pace entirely to those who come,” Karlsson said, noting the officers would jog as well as walk with residents who wanted to join.
Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.”The police inspector’s comments mirror a report from 2016 which stated that close to half of women in Sweden felt “very unsafe” at night alone in Swedish cities. According to the report, conducted by newspaper Aftonbladet, a further 43 per cent felt uncomfortable in Swedish cities even in the daytime.
The issue is particularly bad in troubled heavily migrant-populated suburbs which are often labelled no-go zones. A survey conducted by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) claimed that around half of the residents of problem areas were too afraid to leave their homes in the evenings.
Brå has expressed support for Karlsson’s jogging programme, as has the municipal government in Oskarshamn.
Karlsson said the officers will be carrying handcuffs as well as weapons as they jog with residents. “We have tried and found a vest that we can fix the equipment to and that works to run in,” he said.
As Sweden’s violent crime rate has increasingly become the centre of national attention, more and more unorthodox solutions to the problems have been proposed. Last month, members of the Moderate Party even proposed deploying the military in no-go areas to aid police.

Migrant Taxi Driver Who Raped Teen Claimed in Court Welsh Victim Was a Prostitute

A Bangladeshi migrant accused of raping a drunk 17-year-old after he picked her up in his taxi is a “sexual predator”, a court has heard.

Katar Shahin was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court to 10 years in prison for raping the drunk teenager, whom the taxi driver “targeted” for assault after noticing her heavily under the influence of alcohol, according to the judge.
Jurors heard that, in the early hours of June 4, he spotted the girl walking in Swansea’s city centre  — where she had consumed alcohol, cannabis, and a sleeping tablet on a night out with friends  — and pulled up beside her in his taxi, asking if she needed a ride.
When the teenager, who stated during the trial that she only got into the vehicle because she believed taxis are all fitted with CCTV for passengers’ safety, told Shahin she had no money, he said he would give her a lift for free.Instead, the 40-year-old drove first to McDonald’s, where he bought the girl a drink, and food for himself, and then to his house, where he told the teenager he needed to make a quick stop before driving her home.
Shahid insisted he could not leave the girl alone in his taxi, so she agreed to go into the house with him, where he then proceeded to try and ply her with alcohol, the court heard.
When she refused, the Bangladeshi tried to kiss and fondle the 17-year-old, who resisted his advances but passed out after feeling drowsy as a result of her intoxication.
The next thing the girl remembered, she said at trial, was waking up naked and seeing a used condom on the floor, before Shahin dropped her off outside a pub in Swansea.
She contacted police the following day, telling them she feared the taxi driver could have raped her, but that she was not sure.
After a police search of Shahin’s house turned up a used condom, the married migrant claimed he had masturbated into it after driving the girl home.
However, with tests revealing the victim’s DNA on the condom, Shahin then changed his story, alleging that the teenager was a prostitute whom he paid £20 for sex.
Judge Geraint Walters described this claim as a “scandalous assertion which the jury found to be a complete lie”.
He told the court: “It seems to me you probably picked-up this girl because you observed she appeared to be heavily under the influence of alcohol – to an extent she was targeted.
“By the time you drove to McDonald’s that night you had decided to see if you could have sex with her. By the time you raped her, you knew she was under the influence of alcohol and drugs.”
Defending Shahin, barrister Robin Rouch said there had been no concerns over his client’s behaviour prior to the rape, adding that the immigrant had been in employment since arriving in Britain from Bangladesh, where he regularly sends money to support his wife and family.

U.S. State Dept Puts $700,000 into Hungarian Media, Demands ‘Programming’ Against Orban, Patriots

The U.S. State Department has courted controversy by announcing it will plough $700,000 into Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government.

The funding was announced by U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously appeared to openly criticise the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [U.S.] foreign policy” and remarking that “not every criticism of the government is ‘fake news’.”
Breitbart London spoke to a State Department official who confirmed it supports what it calls “democracy and human rights programming” in many countries, and that its intentions in Hungary — a NATO ally — are to “support media outlets operating outside the capital … to produce fact-based reporting and increase their audience and economic sustainability”.
The State Department also echoed Kostelancik’s claim that too many Hungarian news outlets are sympathetic to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s popular conservative government — which has earned powerful enemies by opposing the European Union on mass migration, building a highly effective border wall, and exposing the network of European politicians deemed “reliable allies” by billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros.
The obvious subtext to all of this is that the State Department funding effort is intended to bolster anti-government and opposition media. This suggests it is still pursuing Obama era, anti-conservative policy objectives internationally in defiance of President Trump, who has praised Prime Minister Orbán — the first European leader to back him — as “strong and brave”.

The Hungarian leader has maintained a position of strong opposition to “globalist elites, the bureaucrats who serve them, the politicians in their pay, and the agents of the Soros-type networks that embody their interests” despite fierce opposition from Brussels, pro-mass immigration NGOs, and left-liberal U.S. media, believing he is standing up for a “silent majority” of hard-pressed families across the West, who wish to preserve their Christian heritage and national identity.
Hungary says U.S. State Dept's decision to pump $700k into rural (opposition?) radio ahead of an election year is interference.

1. Is this a @realDonaldTrump-approved use of American taxes?
2. Can you imagine the establishment heart attack if Russia pumped 700k into U.S. radio? https://twitter.com/hungary_journal/status/930520608793939968 
For its part, the Hungarian government has denounced the State Department for what it regards as blatant interference in its internal affairs ahead of national elections in Spring 2018.
“What is this if not an intervention in the election campaign and the domestic politics of Hungary? Which Washington office can judge the applications of media organisations from a Hungarian county and what kind of balanced service they would like to offer?” asked Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, who said it was shocking that American taxpayers’ money was being used to — to quote the State Department — “educate journalists on how to practice their trade” in an allied democracy.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has summoned the U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires, asking for an explanation, and told him that we consider this a political intervention by the U.S. Department of State ahead of the elections,” a spokesman added.

The Hungarians have also robustly rejected the State Department’s accusations that there is no press freedom in their country.
For example, Prime Minister Orbán’s Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy, Dr. Zoltán Kovács, has highlighted the following exchange between journalists at Hungarian outlets 168óra and RTL Klub — neither of which “would ever be described as linked to the Orbán Government”, in his estimation:
168óra: Is there press freedom in Hungary?
Péter Kolosi: There is. If there weren’t, then there wouldn’t be an RTL Klub either.
Dr. Kovács then questioned whether Kostelancik — who is not the U.S. ambassador to Hungary, but only fulfilling that role temporarily while the Obama appointee he formerly served is in the process of being replaced — has any mandate to be attacking Hungary’s media landscape in the first place.
He also took the Chargé d‘Affaires to task for praising journalists of the “Communist old guard” who attended his speech for supposedly “striving to speak the truth” — a scene the Hungarian described as “stomach-turning”, given their history of collaboration with the Soviet-backed dictatorship.
Prime Minister Orbán, who opposed the Leftist regime at some personal risk as a younger man, has often chided Western leaders — and the European Union in particular — of “making excuses for the crimes of Communism”, and worked to make sure its victims are given due attention since his election.
Dr Kovács went on the publish a more extensive response to Kostelancik and the State Department, in which he lamented their actions as “astonishing and disappointing coming from an ally”.
Beyond the “clear interference in the domestic affairs of an ally”, he noted that “the media in the U.S. has its own issues. Criticisms related to concentration of media ownership, commercial relationships, and mainstream media bias – Harvey Weinstein, anyone? — are now the stuff of everyday in the U.S.”
He concluded by observing that one of Geroge Soros’s many so-called civil society organisations launched a media training operation in Hungary around the same time as Kostalencik announced the State Department funding scheme — leaving some suspicious as to who the “partner” the State Department intends to select to deliver its programme might turn out to be.
Hungary is in the midst of a fierce struggle with Soros and his EU backers over its opposition to his plan for the migrant crisis.
Hungary believes that the EU is implementing this plan on behalf of the convicted insider trader through the compulsory redistribution of migrants by a system quotas, among other measures, and is currently conducting a national consultation on it to demonstrate that its opposition to the plan has widespread public support.
“Let’s speak to the point. Migration is not the goal of the Soros Plan, but merely its means,” Prime Minister Orbán observed in a November 12th speech.
“Millions of people in Africa and the Middle East are being encouraged to come to Europe; indeed they are even being transported here, in order to debilitate nations and deliver thecoup de grâce to Christian culture.”
The Hungarian premier believes that this process of undermining nation-states, revealedas a globalist imperative by United Nations migration chief Peter Sutherland in 2012, forms part of a wider plan by EU elites “to replace an alliance of nations with a federation of states” — a United States of Europe.
“This is the only logical explanation for millions of people being transported to Europe from other cultures – as there must be some sort of explanation for why this is happening now. We cannot consider this to be an accident,” he added.
“Europe [could] defend its borders if it wanted to … what is lacking is not the ability to do so, but the will. And this lack of will is not unintentional, but the consequence of a definite underlying attitude that, in a United States of Europe, nations and their Christian character are more of a drawback than a benefit.”
