The Swiss, German, and basically all EU security reports have included Islamic terrorists specifically as a threat to peace and security in Europe. Not Christian, Jewish, Buddist, etc. What is your explanation for that?

Yes.

And even if it's all fake and they do bring huge benefits.

The concept of democracy says we get to do whet people want, not necessarily what makes us most rich.

We would all be better financially off if we sold our second kidneys.

Have you done that yet Marton?

Spain is now also just about the only major EU country without an anti immigration party of any electoral significance.

I wonder for how much longer?

How about one day ?

Quote:
The Spanish Interior Ministry has defended its pushback policy on display on Thursday morning, when over 700 African migrants stormed the fence separating Morocco from Spain’s north African enclave of Ceuta.
“The Civil Guard is enforcing existing legislation,” said ministry sources about the fact that some of these migrants were immediately sent back to Morocco. The Socialist government led by Pedro Sánchez had recently said it would reconsider the controversial practice of returning migrants on the spot, but the Interior Ministry now says that “there will be no legislative change outside European agreements on immigration.”
Speaking on the SER radio network on Thursday evening, Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said that the migrants who were sent back to Morocco had not technically reached Spanish soil yet. His department is backing the Civil Guard’s actions on Thursday, saying officers “have to comply with the law.”
Socialist government...

Within a year.

Why would Spain, with their massive youth unemployment already, need an influx of uneducated, illegal African migrants?

The prime minister has even said he wants to dismantle the barbed wire fence in Ceuta. Imagine what would happen once that fence is gone.

Maybe he is about to pull a Merkel here and accelerate things.

...because then all the young unemployed Spanish people could make money in human trafficking by driving all the migrants to Germany

MADRID — Spain’s maritime rescue service says it has saved nearly 1,000 migrants attempting the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean to Europe from North Africa over the last two days.

The service says it pulled 206 people from 10 different boats Saturday morning, after rescuing 774 migrants traveling in 52 boats on Friday.
In one day 52 boats with 100+ people on each....it's like a Disney ride or something

774/52=~15 people per boat.

Yeah, but 206/10, just the next day! The trend is definitely toward 100+ per boat!

Which action ? There are several. I would agree with towing the boats back to shore in North Africa or paying to improve the North African coast guard rescue - that has proved very successful in the past - both in saving lives and preventing illegal migration.

In my opinion I consider Africa to be, in general, a more barbaric place than Europe.

So when greemount said ''the way to barbarianism can be very, very short'', meaning that by returning illegal immigrants will somehow lead Europe to 'barbarianism', I was just pointing out that perhaps having an influx of many people from a more barbaric place may also lead to 'barbarianism'
