Listen to Eastern Europe

EU bureaucrats should hear the message loud and clear: Muslim migration waves are a pressing problem, and the public is fed up.

The European Union announced this week that it would begin proceedings to punish Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic for their refusal to accept refugees and migrants under a 2015 scheme the E.U. commission created. The mission’s aim was to relieve Greece and Italy of the burden from migrant waves arriving from the Middle East and Africa, largely facilitated by European rescues of migrants in the Mediterranean.

    Being agenda-driven the EU bureaucrats will not listen nor do they care. I suggest that those few sane countries seriously consider leaving the EU if they want to survive as sovereign countries.

    Where are the Slovaks in this? They’re the poor cousins in this group and may not be able to resist as they wish to.

      Slovakia says it will only accept Christians when it takes in 200 Syrian refugees under a EU relocation scheme.
      Last month, EU member states agreed to take in 32,000 asylum seekers arriving in Italy and Greece over the next two years – fewer than the 40,000 target.
      The scheme was made voluntary after some nations – including Slovakia – refused to accept set quotas.
      Mr Netik told the BBC: “We want to really help Europe with this migration wave but… we are only a transit country and the people don’t want to stay in Slovakia.
      “We could take 800 Muslims but we don’t have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?”

        Thanks for update. I do remember seeing the very occasional Muslim there back in the day – women in black body bags – but they were rare. It is indeed still a Christian country.

    When the scheme was proposed, the number was for 150,000.
    Once the precedent is set, it will become 1,500,000
    The member states of the Visegrad Group know this.

    Greece and Italy both have armed forces. They could stop the migrants any time they wanted if they set their minds to it it. They could also start deporting the ones who are there. It wouldn’t be hard.

    Set up a transit camp in the middle east and another in north africa. Stop giving them money and feeding them unless they are in the process of voluntary or forced repatriation. Give each migrant the option of passage to one or the other. Armed soldiers and ships/aircraft could then start to move people. A lot would move on their own after that and shoot people who resist.

      Dump them ashore in Saudi Arabia during the Hajj. They’ll get lost in the crowd.

    Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic might therefore be the only countries left in all of Europe where tourists from the USA and Canada might actually visit. After all, why would anyone be interested in visiting an Afro-Islamic “France” or an Afro-Islamic “Germany”?
