Italy migrant crisis: Charities ‘colluding’ with smugglers

An Italian prosecutor says he has evidence some of the charities saving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea are colluding with people-smugglers.

Carmelo Zuccaro told La Stampa (in Italian) phone calls were being made from Libya to rescue vessels.

Organisations involved in rescue operations have rejected accusations of collusion, saying their only concern is to save lives.

Italy is the main route for migrants trying to reach Europe.

Almost 1,000 people are thought to have drowned in waters between Libya and Italy this year, according to the UN refugee agency.

Nearly 37,000 people have been rescued over the same period, a surge of more than 40% from last year, the figures say.

“We have evidence that there are direct contacts between certain NGOs [non-governmental organisations] and people traffickers in Libya,” Mr Zuccaro is quoted as saying in La Stampa.

    It’s almost as if this is coordinated and a money making venture.
    The NGO’s get paid, the smugglers get paid, the “migrants” get welfare, and the average working guy gets stuck with the bill.
    Dear average non-elite European, you are being ‘guilted’ into paying for the world’s most extensive and expensive con-game.

    A small mini sub with torpedos would go a long way towards reducing the number of invaders reaching italy.

  • Bless his heart

    All of the NGO and other smugglers boats must be confiscated.

    Italy, Greece, Spain and other nations must hold the EU accountable for not enforcing EU borders and EU laws, and .bill the EU and Angela Merkel and Germany and any nations and politicians that have caused the invasion of Europe and the massive expenses. The next bailout demand the EU presents to some nations must be countered with counter demands.

    Oh. And return the invaders to their home nations.

    I knew this about 10 years ago for the refugee Centre in High Park when I stumbled on some Legal document from an Immigration Lawyer’s Office on Bloor st west linked to smuggling that got the business via Welfare for the bogus refugees on Legal Aid once they arrive.
    The Immigration Lawyers Office made Donations to Refugee centre that had a Charity Status in the guise of a Catholic based group the rescued Christians from Central America because of a Cleric that was murdered by the Communist government opposed to promoting any faith that aids the poor to turn them against the State.

    But under Obama the open Borders and Global Jihad crusades in the West had been great for Smugglers in Canada that now exploit Muslims and Mexicans . The irony and sadness for the Centre is that it is now on the side of those that are murdering Christians as it morphed into a For-Profit group with a Charity tax Status to scam the CRA.
    One night when I saw a group of people in the Bloor St refugees Office with Pro-hamas flags and women with Hijabs …..I found that odd until I watched the News to see the Jew-hating anti-israel Protest that was planned for the US Consulate on University ave.
    I called the RCMP a bout this because the Bloor st Office also had Anti-USA propaganda in the window as well as attacks on Harper over the refugee Policy to cut Health Care to failed refugees being harboured in Canada by the same smugglers wanting to get rich by also smuggling in their relatives too. What a shock to get a speech about the freedom of speech in Canada where they have the right to express their views for the Government or Israel.
    Right……but the real tragedy that angered that person on the phone was that I educated them on their job to enforce the Federal Laws used by the Revenue Canada ( now the CRA ) for Charities that are NOT allowed to be a Political based activist Org while benefiting from Donation to Issue a Tax-Credit receipt FROM the same Government.
    The person felt imposed on to take my Information and investigate the claims. It
    was about 7 month later where the Office front window was void of any posting for Political driven propaganda while also remembered seeing unmarked Black SUV’s and men in dark suits removing those Document storage boxes .

    How many Fake Charities for islamic groups are exploiting the Tax laws to fund Jihad terrorism in the guise of Donation to the Mosque or an Orphans org in the Middle East as the Khadr’s did to fund Terrorism .
    The CRA hounds Canadians over Nickles and Dimes or a basic error but ignore the $$$ millions being scammed by fake Charities and NGO’s that use 90% of the money for Political campaigns to elect those that they would benefit from.

    One of the Khadr boys was in a PBS program about Al Qaeda and terrorism links to jihadists in the USA . This program was used by the CBC to take the parts they needed to paint the Khadr boy as a victim the was used to help the CIA .

    Except that here’s the statement made to the CBC .

    ***** Abdurahman says he was captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan when the Taliban fell in November 2001. He lived in a CIA safehouse in Kabul for months, showing intelligence agents al-Qaeda locations around the city.

    “There was this tour. They called it Abdurahman tour,” he said. “I was famous for that.”

    Abdurahman says the CIA sent him to Camp X-ray in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to spy on other inmates. When that failed, he says he was sent to Bosnia – on the CIA’s payroll – to spy on suspected al-Qaeda members.*****
    Link to full news reports (


    Abdurahman Khadr said that he got $60,000.00 a year a income by the CIA to be a mole.
    Imagine my surprise when I didn’t see even 1 story by the Revenue Canada for the RCMP going after Khadr for NOT reporting the Earned Income outside of Canada which is a crime via Tax-Fraud . Even Paul Martin was smart enough to Register his CSL company outside of Canada and fly a Foreign Flag on the ships to hide his Income from taxes in Canada.
    But Khadr was a Canadian and subject to out Laws as he earn $60,000.00 working for the US Government which was undeclared income.

    I have a good memory and don’t rely on the CBC archives or Liberal propaganda Narratives they spew to the Media because of the people are too busy record every news item that might have value 10 years later .
    In 2003 , Maher Arar told the CBC that the USA was very nice to him and that he was Tortured in Jordan for 2 weeks by Arab kidnappers that grabbed him after he deplaned and then was taken to this homeland . But in 2005-6 the CBC and CAIR supported Arar’s $ 400,000,000.00 extortion lawsuit for unproven Torture in Syrian as he awaited a Military trial as a draft dodger according the the Arar Inquiry that I followed.
    What also had a bad smell was that Arar accepted just $10.2 million to go away but later on I followed the news items posted by CAIR where the same Muslim Org’s or and groups got a large Donation from the Arar’s $10.2 million extortion benefit. The Arar’s ‘ Victory ‘ dinner in Ottawa had several Imam’s and islamic org’s now tied to terrorism and mosques pumping out Jihadists.

    The Media and Liberals are both stupid and complicit to ignore the Fact Pattern
    for how the Muslim Brotherhood and saudi’s are spreading islam and sharia in Canada while Lawfare is used by islamists to get money for Jihad and dawah
    as Soft terrorism to impose Sharia by-proxy as Public schools become De Facto Madrassa’s funded by the taxpayers .
    M-103 will be the psychological Jihad to inflict fear on the infidels for opposing islam because brain-dead Leftists like Barbara Hall were useful idiots that will aid in jailing canadians that don’t Submit to the caliphate because Liberals now want to win in 2019 to keep Justin in power as the head Useful-Idiot and islamophile just like Obama was.
