Al Jazeera ‘Voice of Qatar’ nags Europe and Canada about taking Syrian refugees

From today: Europe’s fear of Syria’s ghost boats

The ghost ships represent both a new tactic – using large cargo ships to move people in winter across longer crossing – and a new trend – that of the refugees coming from Syria. Last year some 230,000 people arrived illegally across the Mediterranean into the EU with Italy receiving the lion’s share of 160,000 whilst 3,500 people died trying to make the crossing. The UNHCR explained that in 2014 for the first time, people mainly from Syria “have become a major component in this tragic flow, accounting for almost 50 per cent of the total”.

The policy of the EU has largely been one of “Fortress Europe” characterised by the reduction of humanitarian support to sea born refugees and tighter border fences to the east. Whilst Syria’s neighbours have accepted the lion’s share of the over 3 million Syrian refugees Europe’s record remains dismal with a recent summit agreeing on only 33,000 more asylum cases.

EU policy is as adrift as many of the refugees who struggle to survive in the Med… Europe must look seriously into accepting larger asylum quotas and focus on giving the most vulnerable a legitimate means of getting to their shores…

Spotted at their site, from November, 2014: Canada’s closed door policy for Syrian refugees

A strange, ominous silence has engulfed Canadian refugee policy in the Middle East.

After three and a half years of bloody civil war in Syria, Canadian reaction to the conflict’s refugee crisis remains virtually inaudible, despite increasingly desperate pleas for help and a growing sense of urgency…

Qatar has been blamed for financing the Islamic fanatics that are making a solution impossible. They have also not taken in any refugees themselves.

Looks like a plan to Islamize the West.

The site has Disqus commenting but is full of leftist idiots, some of whom do not even know that Qatar runs the operation. But even allowing for that, there are still negative comments.

    The rules that define the Schengen Area Agreement are largely meaningless anyway. They can be ignored with impunity. But the problem with illegal immigration to the EU is a ‘glitch’ in the EU’s own rules that forbid any destination from shipping their illegal aliens back or even to some other EU or non EU country without an absurdly long and complex legal process. More than 4% of the total population of Malta is illegal aliens. That’s the equivalent of 1.4 million Canadians.

    This is like Acme Chemical Company dumping barrels of toxic waste on your lawn and then lecturing you about the importance of cleaning up the environment.

    Ship all the rufugees to qatar. If they are so solicitous of their welfare then they can have them (at least the pislamic ones).

    I have cautioned my federal MP Steven Fletcher twice now about his association with Al Jazeera (the largest terrorist propaganda organization in the world) but have not received a reply….

    Easy answer – Canada will accept as many Syrian refugees as Saudi Arabia does.

      Good one.

    99% of these migrants do not come close to being bona fide refugees. Let turkey provide land and housing for the duration and be repaid for it through the UN.

    At least, take in the Christians. The Muslims should go to other Muslim countries.

    Al Jazeera and the UN nagging Canada? I’ve made it pretty plain to my reps in Canada that the only Syrian refugees should be Christian or other persecuted minorities. They might actually be listening. CBC should be added to the matters.

    That would be naggers and I know for sure that we Canadians are damn well sick of being the naggees!
