Are people willing to take the responsibility for others

Last few weeks I had many problems with my computer. Because of that, certain news messages I wanted to react on, did not get my response on this or on any other site of mine.

Every day we could see pictures of people who were treated like animals and were pushed from one site to an other. We have seen countries putting up wired boarders and avoiding that people who were looking for better pastures could pass their boarders, though they were not interested in staying in that country, only willing to go through it.

For the whole of 2014 280,000 were notated to have found their way to a safe haven in Europe. From January until August 2015 already more than 350,000 migrants were detected at the EU’s borders.

In 2014 Iranian president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani blamed the western colonial powers for the wars and bloodshed in the Middle East.

Rouhani also underlined the Western and Israeli secret agencies which created the various terrorist groups with a single goal:

“the destruction of civilization, giving rise to Islamophobia and creating a fertile ground for further intervention of foreign forces in our region”.

Lots of people have become very afraid of the refugees who are coming this direction, forgetting that they are fleeing those ISIS fighters. Many Westerners do not want to see that their governments laxity is one of the main causes of the flood of these people looking for more peaceful places. It are our governments which allowed the Middle-East, Central Asia, and the Caucuses to be turned into a haven for terrorists and extremists.

Today Europe is facing the consequences of their lax attitude doing not enough again the dictatorship of President Bashar al-Assad and afterwards having not come in when several rebel groups tried to destabilise the country.
It may well be that Russia has been a staunch ally for Syria, even as much of the world decries al-Assad’s role in the country’s gruesome civil war. North America, Europe, China, India and Oceania could have done better to bring all parties together and have them come to a census to solve the internal problem.
We can understand that Israel‘s policy has been to stay out of the Syrian civil war, which is raging nearby right across the Golan frontier. But Israel says it has established red lines, such as making sure advanced military equipment such as Russian anti-aircraft missiles don’t fall into the hands of Hezbollah in Lebanon or other militant groups.

Weapons from different countries, like the States of America, Belgium, Russia, have found their way in the hands of parties fighting against each other, whilst our so called civilised countries earned enough money with their battle.

The number of people forcibly displaced by conflict or persecution in this world reached 51.2 million—the highest total recorded since World War II, the UN refugee agency reported on World Refugee Day in 2014. More than half of all refugees worldwide came from just three countries: Afghanistan, Syria, and Somalia. In Syria and Iraq alone, an estimated 13.6 million people have been displaced by the conflicts, constituting what UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres dubbed a “mega-crisis.”

“We are witnessing a quantum leap in forced displacement in the world,”

said Guterres, who blamed the flows on the failure to resolve or prevent conflict. While humanitarian assistance helps mitigate suffering in the short term, he warned that without political solutions,

“the alarming levels of conflict, and the mass suffering that is reflected in these figures will continue.”

Already more than 8 million Syrians have been displaced, more than 5 million have fled the country to nearby countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, and Kuwait, often to continue their way to West Europe, spending lots of money to human traffickers to bring them to Greece or to bring them further to Germany, Sweden, Great-Britain and Belgium.  Those countries are facing now a huge amount of refugees.
Under the refugees we mostly find those who had enough savings and who have a good education. Millions more have been left in poor living conditions with shortages of food and drinking water. All those who have not enough money are bound to stay in the war zones and to try to make the best of it in horrible conditions.

For many refugees Europe seems to be a heaven on earth and an ideal place to go to. But this dream can be shattered soon, when they are having to undergo the reactions of the many police forces of the different countries and the negative reactions of many European citizens, plus feeling the cold and bad weather of our regions.

Corporate welfare increases as we curtail welfare for the poor. The banks which took our money away and brought on the global financial crisis got billions while we who have been lured and stolen off are standing at the site with not much money left over and as such also not so able to help others like we would have wanted to do. Several older people are afraid their retirement funds will diminish by the states needing more money to provide for help for the refugees. Though they should see that those younger people coming into the country could just help to provide money for the payments of those retired. Governments want people to believe that the refugees could be bringers of salvation to solve the problem of the retiring boom-children. But they forget that when they do not allow the refugees to work at properly conditions they shall get bored in their camps and start doing annoying things, which frightens many civilians. New employment opportunities should be created, but all the people from abroad should be allowed to work at the same condition as other workers in the country.
Citizens are afraid they shall be used as cheap labour and taking away the jobs for the autochtones. they also want to believe that Islamic State militants are planning to insert operatives into Western Europe disguised as refugees, like US intelligence sources claim.

Also countries telling that they will have to rise taxes when they do have to take more asylum seekers is not helping to have the population looking forward to more people coming into their country.

Greeks and Italians are tested at their limits and are unable to cope with all those people coming in by rickety boats.

The different religions are the other matter that frightens lots of people. It is true that people who entered our regions ten/twenty years ago and had been in refugee camps tell stories how the different religious refugees in the camps after some time started to have very heated discussions and fights about their faith. Problem is also when the guest country does not make it very clear that all those who want to come to live here shall have to adapt to our way of live and not the other way around.

For the West it shall be a problem when governments would allow more mosques and having them making noise as soon as the sun comes up. I do not think it is right to say we

“will have to come to terms with more mosques than churches throughout the countryside.”

like the  the longest-serving incumbent head of government in the European Union Angela Merkel wants us to believe.
She says Germany may accept 800,000 foreign migrants and refugees. Even though 600,000 of those are from poor East European countries seeking better life in Germany whilst the remaining 200,000 are refugees from Syria and African countries devastated by the US and EU for greed or Israel.

While Jewish lobby groups are campaigning for the western nations to admit millions of refugees fleeing Arab and African countries under attack from United States and its Western, Arab and African allies, they’re quite silent over urging the Zionist regime to change its immigration laws and take some of these African and Syrian refugees. {Jewish author: ‘Israel makes refugees’}

But the Jewish media and anti-Muslim “nationalists” have put all of them together in same basket with a label: Unwanted Arab and African refugees. {The Muslims are Coming}

Social workers in whole Europe are already involved or getting involved very soon with all these people, families, children trying to reach safe places and countries where they can start a life of chances for themselves and their children.

The new Commission proposals to address the migration and refugee crisis, including a permanent mechanism for relocating asylum seekers within the EU and a common EU list of safe countries of origin, will be debated for the first time by the Civil Liberties Committee.
Parliament and Council on Saturday were looking at an equal footing on these two draft laws. The committee also had an exchange of views with the Commission on the proposal to relocate an additional 120,000 asylum seekers in the EU. Parliament backed the Commission’s proposal in an urgency vote on 17 September.

”It is very rare for the Parliament to use this procedure on such an important matter, which needs proper consideration in this House. But following the Council meeting of Monday and the lack of consensus – or urgency – in reaching majority agreement on an organised and compassionate response to the refugee crisis here in the European Union, it is necessary that we respond and that people see the Parliament doing its job”

said the Chair of the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee, Claude Moraes (S&D, UK)

The refugee crisis has come to a point that is revealing the core inability of the Old Continent to find a common solution and path in order to confront this long-lasting issue. It is clearly a very crucial problem that requires time and discussion. {The refugee crisis brings to light EU’s most horrible flaws and nightmares}

Clearly in all this situation we can see how divided Europe still is and how much work still has to be done to bring a real European State feeling in the minds of the local governments and in the citizens their head. Today still too many are only thinking about their own (little) region, their own country and not as being a part of a bigger unit, called Europe.

MEPs and national MPs will meet on Wednesday 23 September to discuss the hotspots, where EU agencies will work on the ground with frontline member states to swiftly identify, register and fingerprint incoming migrants. Hotspots are being set up in Italy and in Greece.
This interparliamentary commitee meeting, organised in the context of the preparation of the strategic report on migration by Roberta Metsola (EPP, MT) and Kashetu Kyenge (S&D, IT), will also be an opportunity for MEPs, national MPs and EU’s Justice and Home Affairs agencies to have a meaningful exchange of views on migration, asylum and border policies, to see how they are being discussed and dealt with at national level.

Hoping to reach the central and north European countries many families walk for miles and miles and sleep under the cold heavens, feeling their dreams perhaps watered down with all the difficulties they face and the many negative reactions they have to bear.

Where is the humanitarian spirit of those countries who say they are Christian, being followers of Christ?

The EU says it will resettle them without saying where, sink their caiques, dinghies and inflatable boats, block their land trails and do whatever it takes to keep them out, accepting no responsibility whatsoever about their hopeless situation. This week’s decisions by the EU Council are nothing new since hundreds of immigrants have already drowned during the summer in the Mediterranean and the Aegean. {Two major EU projects falter; the Schengen Agreement now freezes and Eurozone fails to resolve the Greek enigma}

It is really getting time all parties, the superpowers, the Western Christian countries but also the real Islamic nations take their responsibility and give a clear signal that there must come an end to that what is not real Islam but is promoted by rebels who want to have more power. The mainstream Muslims know ISIS is wrong. It’s not the right interpretation of the Quran. Unless they do something to stop them, it will be difficult for  the West defeating these radical groups and to take away the fear by their own population for a Muslim invasion.

All in all, the lesson that the EU has to take stock from the migration crisis is that stronger fundamentals must be built in order for the EU edifice not to start tearing apart in one night. This means that every EU country has to come closer to one another with solidarity and share similar principles and ideals. {The refugee crisis brings to light EU’s most horrible flaws and nightmares}

The biggest problem though is that solidarity cannot be easily monetised and is against the strict teutonic financial principles that the EU has been flourishing with lately. This time we need political talent, boldness and unity of a political Union that, as many argue, has been lately set as a second priority project. {The refugee crisis brings to light EU’s most horrible flaws and nightmares}
