Egyptian billionaire offers to buy an island from Greece or Italy and provide jobs so fleeing migrants can ‘build a new country’


Naguib Sawiris

Announcing the initiative on Twitter, telecoms tycoon Naguib Sawiris said: ‘Greece or Italy sell me an island, I’ll call its independence and host the migrants and provide jobs for them building their new country’.

Maybe Germany could just sell him Greece.

    Hiring people that just broke that laws to invade a nation for the welfare is NOT a good idea to assume they are Honest and Productive. They would be better employed by designing a security fence that THEY can’t even get over or tunnel under.

    Also , Hire the Immigration Consultant weasels for a huge salary to create a Welfare system and refugee system with NO loopholes that these weasels used to smuggle people into Canada to make a “Refugee” claim or enjoy the Sanctuary City called Toronto.


    Toronto ; Canada has just announced that it will be a sanctuary City , this means that if anyone can get to Toronto they can join the current 300,000 illegals that City Coun. Joe Mihevic said will now get Welfare and FREE Health care.

    If you suffer sloth or just don’t want to work , use the info below to visit or Contact the Councillor in Toronto that said you can get welfare if you show up in Toronto.

    For any of you outside of Canada , or just across the border in Detroit
    or Buffalo , if you want all the FREE stuff offered by Joe in his sanctuary City just come to Toronto and call Joe at his Office or email him now on how to apply for FREE welfare and Health care.
    *Don’t worry about your criminal record or drug dealings because the Police have been told to not ask criminals their status in Canada , their $90,000.00 a year salary now has them Loyal to their pay cheque and not Canada*

    CONTACT below.
    Just phone or Visit his office if you’re still here after the Pan Am games or now the Para games , you can also get Disability benefits as well that pay twice what welfare does.

    Joe Mihevc is Toronto’s city councillor representing Ward 21, St. Paul’s West. He is an advocate for strong neighbourhoods, healthy communities, a clean environment and safe streets. ( oh well , forget the Safe Streets when illegals will be murdering women like in San Fran, Thanks uncle Joe. )

    The Island would fill up so fast it would be full within a year. Then a war will break out amongst the different ethnicities and we’ll be right back in the same spot with all the dysfunctional cultures fleeing to Europe. The only difference would be a shorter boat ride. I say sell them some land on Mars!

    • You’re wrong.

      It would be full within a month.

      • lolwut?

        Wow, ain’t you the generous one!.

        I’d give them a week before the old country squabbles rear their head.

    With his money he couldn’t find a plot of land in Egypt? Sounds a little like NIMBY.
    But at intriguing as the idea is… it doesn’t solve the problem.

    At the very least if he were to hold with this it would actually be a case of someone putting their money where their mouth is and not just complaining governments aren’t doing enough with other peoples homes and money. Kudos to him for that.

  • SDMatt

    Build? They’re not heading to Germany to build anything, they’re heading there to live off the sweat of others. They’d be on TV dying and causing another sob-storm if they were shipped off to some island with the intent that they build a new world for themselves.

  • FactsWillOut

    I’ve got an idea. Make an Amero zone. We can persuade Mexico to join by giving them 100’s of billions in loans, then act all surprised and indignant when they don’t pay us back.

    Coptic Christian “billionaire” sounds more elegant than “front man crony capitalist” for, shall we say, some of “the usually less devout but wisely circumspect sons of the profit”.

    He can buy one of Indonesia’s 11,000 islands and settle them there. The country is already Muslim and there may be opportunities ahead if East Asia continues to rise economically.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    And then he said they were going to make their own country!

  • Exile1981

    He’s asking to buy a beach head not a nation.

    Ask Israel how safe they are having an islamic nation on their border that launches rockets from hospitals and schools.
