EU’s Refugee Dilemma: “Growing Panic” on How to Change Terms of Deal with Devil

When you make a deal with the devil, it’s certain the devil will insist you keep up your end of the bargain.

That’s precisely where we are at today in regards to the European refugee crisis.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel signed off on a deal with the devil (Turkey) that would give 80 million Turkish Muslims visa-free access to the EU. As part of the deal, Turkey will receive €3 billion in aid.

In return, Turkey agreed to halt the flow of refugees pouring into Greece.

Turkey did stop the flow of refugees into Greece, and now the devil wants his due.


“Growing Panic”

The Financial Times reports EU States Grow Wary as Turkey Presses for Action on Visas Pledge.

European diplomats are agonising over their politically perilous promise to grant visa-free travel to 80m Turks, amid strong warnings from Ankara that the EU migration deal will fold without a positive visa decision by June.


The EU’s month-old deal to return migrants from Greece to Turkey has dramatically cut flows across the Aegean, easing what had been an acute migration crisis. But the pact rests on sweeteners for Ankara that the EU is struggling to deliver — above all, giving Turkish citizens short-term travel rights to Europe’s Schengen area.


Germany, France and other countries nervous of a political backlash over Muslim migration have started exploring options to make the concession more politically palatable, including through safeguard clauses, extra conditions or watered-down terms. The political calculations are further complicated by looming EU visa decisions for Ukraine, Georgia and Kosovo.


One senior EU official said the search for alternatives reflected “growing panic” in Berlin and Paris over the looming need to deliver the pledge. The various options, the official added, were “a political smokescreen” to muster support in the Bundestag and European Parliament, which must also vote on the measures.


The Turkish visa issue has even flared in Britain’s EU referendum campaign, forcing David Cameron, the prime minister, to clarify on Wednesday that Turks could not automatically come to the UK if they were granted visa rights to the 26-member Schengen area.

Devil Chimes In

They cannot and should not change the rules of the game . . . We expect them to stick to what was agreed, otherwise how can we continue to trust the EU? We delivered on our side of the bargain. Now it is their turn,” said the devil’s spokesperson, Selim Yenel, Turkey’s ambassador to the EU.

Supposedly it now takes a “a political smokescreen” to muster support in the Bundestag and European Parliament, which must also vote on the measures.

In other words, Merkel signed off on a deal that was not hers to make.

The devil himself chimed in.

“The EU needs Turkey more than Turkey needs the EU,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said recently.

EU Unhappiness

Brussels is unhappy with the way Turkey has passed data protection laws and has issues with some of its terrorism legislation impinging on minority rights.


EU officials have in the past blamed Ankara’s liberal visa policy — and even the plethora of destinations offered by Turkish Airlines — for making it too easy for people to risk the trip to Europe via Turkey. At the same time, Brussels is also demanding that Turkey give visa-free access to all EU citizens.

In regards to the above EU unhappiness, a lawyer representing the devil emailed me today stating “Where does the deal specify data protection and minority rights? Please show me the clause.”

The devil ended his email to Mish with this line “When did I promise happiness?

As a European I stand up and say any deal with the Turks, or bringing Muslims to Europe is tantamount to treason.

The EU is being sold down the river by most of its leaders who seem to responding to their chaos lodge masters rather than their citizens or the best interest of their countries.

Shame on you.

Here’s a little more on Golem courtesy of Drudge:

Turkey seizes Christian churches; Declares 'state property'... 

"Included in the seizures are Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches, one of which is over 1,700 years old.

But, unlike Christian churches which are maintained by the generosity of their congregations, all mosques in Turkey are state-backed and funded, meaning their futures are secure."

There is more truth to your statement froze25 than most folks realize.

Actually, anyone with ½-way of a brain has understood is GERMANY holds the future of Europe in its hands.


Before the creation of the EEC-EU & the US Military Occupation of Germany, the most logical solution for the 'Turkish Sponsored Invasion' of Europe would have been a naval blockade & closed borders with the türkïes, sanctions, embargos etc.....and if necessary WAR!

Who the fuck in their right mind would tolerate this türkïe bullshit?


The American Empire dictates its control thru NATO and its paid stooges that run the vassel states of Europe.

The EU is also an american foreign policy creation as well.

If Germans were to kick out the US Military-NSA-CIA stationed thru out Germany, re-introduce the Deutschmark, and demand the EU should be ONLY a consultive european forum WITHOUT formal power.....all this shit would come to an end real-quick.

Hopefully the Britts will do their part and go "BREXIT".

Personally, I think erDOGan and his ilk should be terminated. ASAP.

Miles Ahead's picture

Yeah, Germany has many times in the past held the future of Europe in it's hands.

The only problem is now, while Germany holds the future of Europe in it's hands, the US the future of Germany in it's hands.  Kick them out?  Easier said than done.

You DO remember when Germany found out they'd tapped Angela's phone for a decade don't you?  And when Germany asked for it's Au...  just sayin'... the devil is in the details.

Article is wrong - Frau Merkel is the devil not Turdogan, he could be taken out quite easily by TPTB.

Exactly, most Western leaders and power structures are walking on the dark side. At least Erdogan is not being hypocritical.

As a former European, I'm glad that my parents had the good sense to get TF out, when I was a teen.

Of course the USSA is not what it was 50 years ago. Damn Banksters and Liberals ruined everything.

Miles Ahead's picture

You must be smoking something.

Had you grown up in Europe, say these past 50 years you would be a much better person, more cultured, more wise, more genuinely educated.  (Note: not including the UK in this Europe I speak of, English in particular).

And yeah, 50 years ago... let's see, coup détat (JFK), MLK hit, RFK hit, 58K dead from 'Nam, economic crash in the late 70's, bubbles, '00 crash, bubbles, riots, 9/11... Obama.  Yeah.  It's been a blast.

So Europe now has some issues, but hey, it's just new people - brown.  It will be OK.  But USA?  It's going to break up.  After it burns down.  Stay tuned, O'lucky one.

Amen. Either Europe remains EUROPEAN or it becomes a 3rd world cesspool filled with 3rd world trash. It is that simple.

Oh fuck off ape.  Lite Reading is probably the culprit.

Think about the past asshole.  Two European World Wars, after centuries of other continental wars.  Look how the Europeans are taking Greece, Spain, and Portugal down.  Yeah, the PIIGS. 

Again, fuck off.

Why would Germany do this? Because they are a liberal 'hug and love thy oppressed neighbour' lot? NO! (self loathing communist liberals hate everyone except their dicktator) it is because Turkey holds and owns physical G O L D and Germany that has no gold, relies only on tech that no one is buying right now. 

Now class... what is golden rule, again?

De Telegraaf says that Turkey is still far of from getting visa-free travelling for their natives:

Of the 72 points they only got to 35, still 37 points to work on.


Still it is indeed a pact with the devil if you ask me...

Also in NL the Turkish consultate in Rotterdam called on Turks to report insults of Erdogan in NL. That prompted many to immediately issue insult of Erdogan directly to the consulate. Many pissed off at the consulate doing this action. They now say it was due to some error that got lost in translation.

WTFUD's picture

Say what you like about Erdogan but he will always remember to wear his Delta House Pledge Pin at all times.

Just like Obama got 90%+ of the black vote, Merkel gets 90%+ of the turk vote and an influx of the latter is not a bad deal for her personally . . just sayin'

Nothing to do with votes and the Social Democrats get most of the Turkish votes.

Erdogan is an Islamic supremacist. Along with shutting down, killing, and imprisoning anyone who disagrees with him, the latest news is that he has seized churches. What is next? Another Armenian massacre of Christians in Turkey? This guy is worse than a snake. Europe is playing with fire by talking to this psychopath.

Miles Ahead's picture

Talking to him?   Get it straight... the Europeans are in Bed with him.  And by the way, turned over - as the Brits would say.

Also, the  UK Journalism...  Now there's an oxymoron for you.  Talk about trash... whew... gotta hold my nose even thinking about it. 

Lucky Leprachaun's picture

Even though it's owned by a Tribesman and its journalism is crap it nonetheless is the only MSM outlet in Britain that tells the truth about mass immigration and the Religion Of Peace.

Hate to break it to you, but everyone except Whites and especially White Males are allowed to be Supremacist.

TPTB want it that way, because history has shown that it is White Males who are their biggest threat, if you studied history.

Merkel playing right into Soros/Darth Sidious "Open Society" plans to steal all the Eurozone assets

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Non-Europeans are happy to steal European assets and wealth.

It's not their People, Culture, Religion or Race that they are raping, robbing or rubbing out.

And yet, Globalist Banksters are not satisfied in having erased tens of millions of Europeans in WW1 and WW2. They want to rub out millions more, by using MENA rapefugees and by having  White-on-White war, by matching up NATO v. Russia.

The people, whose heads need to be on pikes, or go through Fargo Chippers, are Globalists (treasonous Oligarchs, Banksters and certain Monarchs*).

* Saudi monarchs for their Wahhabi Imperialism, and EU monarchs for living comfy & cozy in their absolute silence, during the Muslim Invasion.
