Sick posters encouraging tourists to jump off balconies emerge on the streets of Barcelona

Anti-tourist graffiti and posters encouraging visitors to jump to their deaths from balconies have been popping up across the Spanish city of Barcelona.

The posters proclaim that ‘balconing IS fun’, stating that it ‘prevents gentrification and improves neighbours’ quality of life’.

‘Balconing’ is the practice of climbing between balconies or, if at a hotel, jumping into a swimming pool from a balcony.

Barcelona attack: The jihadists and the hunt for a second gang

A neighbour had just walked past when an explosion tore through a small, white house in the Spanish coastal town of Alcanar last August.

Debris was flung hundreds of metres by the force of the blast and the bodies of two men landed in nearby gardens. A third man who had been on a roof terrace talking on his phone survived.

The next day a van attack was launched on pedestrians in Barcelona’s central tourist avenue, Las Ramblas. Hours later there was another attack, in Cambrils, a coastal town. Sixteen people died and more than 130 were injured.

Catalonia had come under attack from a jihadist gang of 11 people.

Is Merkel saving face? Controversial Germany-Spain deal on migrants comes into force

As a Berlin-Madrid deal to send back migrants coming though Spain comes into force, critics call it a “symbolic” gesture aimed to calm the political storm in Germany but that will not solve the migrant crisis.

Germany reached a deal on Wednesday for Spain to take back previously registered migrants who show up at the German border. The move is seen as the first step towards implementing a deal which Merkel earlier reached within the ruling coalition to defuse the political dispute in Germany over migration.

American tourist encounters vibrant diversity in Barcelona, Spain

An American tourist was attacked and whipped with belts by illegal immigrant street traders for trying to stop a woman being abused in Barcelona. The man, reportedly aged 45, was hospitalised after the unlicensed sellers, known as ‘manteros’, jumped on him in the middle of the city centre. In a video, recorded by a shocked onlooker, the man can be seen trying to get away from the attackers in Plaça de Catalunya.

Local media report that the fight began when the tourist defended a woman who was being insulted by the street sellers after she told them they had not left enough space for her to cross the road with her pram.

A 45-year-old American man was attacked by a bunch of “manteros” (the Spanish name for African migrants who sell junk on the streets of the capital). He was at the Place of Catalonia when he saw the manteros arguing with a woman who couldn’t cross the road with her pushchair.

The American tourist tried to help her but the migrants hit him with a belt, it was like “a whip” describe police sources.

He was hit so hard it caused “internal bleeding and a deep wound”. Fortunately, he was tended to by medics before being transferred to Barcelona’s Clinic hospital, where he was treated and is now out of danger.

On July 26, some 800 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa violently stormed the border fence between Morocco, where they were living illegally, and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. According to Spanish authorities:

“In an attempt to stop the Guardia Civil getting close to the break-in area, the migrants … [pelted] officers with plastic containers of excrement and quicklime, sticks and stones, as well as using aerosols as flame-throwers.”

Many people were wounded in the clash, and 602 migrants succeeded in entering Spanish territory.

Dozens more illegal alien invaders land on packed Spanish beach

This is the astonishing moment around 50 migrants land on a packed beach and sprint up the sand as stunned tourists look on.

Footage taken by holidaymakers and posted on Twitter showed the Africans jumping off their rickety wooden boat as it reaches the shoreline as a father on the beach moves his children out of the way and two men interrupt a game of beach tennis.

Other tourists strolling along the water’s edge as the cramped vessel reaches dry land can be seen breaking into a run to join crowds milling around a woman migrant who was injured in the mass arrival and is laid on her back on the sand.

Spain: Ground Zero for Europe’s Anti-Israel Movement

Valencia, the third-largest city in Spain, has approved a motion to boycott Israel and slander it by declaring the city an “Israeli apartheid-free zone.” The move comes days after Navarra, one of Spain’s 17 autonomous communities, announced a similar measure. In all, more than 50 Spanish cities and regions have passed motions condemning Israel. The proliferating anti-Israel activism, driven by the rise to power of the political far-left, is establishing Spain as the EU member state most hostile towards the Jewish state.
