EU Threatens Member States With Fines Over Failure To Accept Refugees

Tyler Durden's picture

For months now, Europe Union member states have been devastated by numerous terrorist attacks and acts of violent crime, many of which were perpetrated at the hands of people who sought asylum from persecution in their home countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa.  Here is just a small sample of our headlines from the past couple of months:

But despite the violence that seems to follow Europe's growing migrant population, European Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos says that member states are falling short of fulfilling "their duty" to help international refugees.  As such, Avramopoulos has threatened economic penalties as early as September for states that refuse to accept their 'fair share' of 160,000 Syrian refugees currently residing in Italy and Greece.  Per Yahoo News:

The EU on Thursday stepped up warnings that countries could be punished if they fail to share the burden of mainly Syrian refugees stranded in Greece and Italy.


Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said member states had until September to take in 160,000 Syrian and other refugees from the two countries, which have been on the frontline of the migration crisis.


So far only 13,500 have been relocated in a process bogged down by general inertia and resistance from Eastern European states which oppose Muslim immigration.


"If we don't have tangible efforts by September... the commission will not hesitate to make use of its power," Avramopoulos, who is Greece's EU commissioner, told a news conference.


The EU has been trying to convince members states "to do their duty," he said.

"But if it is not the case in the future, infringements might be an option," he said.

Migrant Camp


Several Eastern European countries like Hungary and Slovakia have proposed paying "solidarity" contributions instead of actually taking in any migrants.  But others, such as France and Germany, insist that no country can shirk its duty to admit a minimum number of refugees under the plan, which was pushed through in September 2015.

Meanwhile, confirming what most of us deduced long ago via the application of just a bit of common sense, Europol and Frontex, Europe's  border and coast guard agency, recently admitted that their intelligence indicates coordinated efforts on the part of ISIS to recruit asylum seekers, both in Syria and in migrant camps after they've already reached Europe, to carry out terrorist attacks.  In a report published by Europol, counter-terrorism experts warned that, among other things, "Syrian refugee diaspora may become vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and may be specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters."

  • Radicalised persons are not necessarily profound believers
  • Elements of the (Sunni Muslim) Syrian refugee diaspora may become vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and may be specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters
  • The majority of attacks claimed by IS appear to be masterminded and perpetrated by individuals inspired by IS, rather than those who work with the organisation directly
  • Intelligence suggests that IS has assembled teams in Syria which are sent to the EU tasked with carrying out attacks
  • Training possibilities for IS are believed to be decreasing in Syria

The report went on to note that "German authorities were aware of around 300 recorded attempts made by jihadists to recruit refugees" as of April 2016 while Merkel continued to relentlessly push her "open-border" policies.

The majority of attacks carried out in the name of IS appear to have been masterminded and performed by individuals who were inspired by IS, rather than those who worked with the terrorist organisation directly. Intelligence suggests, however, that IS has also put together teams in Syria which are sent to the EU tasked with carrying out attacks. It is believed that this ‘external terrorism network’, began sending fighters abroad two years ago.


Given that it is in the interests of IS to inflame the migration crisis to polarise the EU population and turn sections of it against those seeking asylum, there is a risk of some infiltration of refugee camps and other groups. The extent of this is unknown, however, making the subject susceptible to exaggeration and exploitation especially by populist factions and (extreme) right-wing parties. A real and imminent danger is the possibility of elements of the (Sunni Muslim) Syrian refugee diaspora becoming vulnerable to radicalisation once in Europe and being specifically targeted by Islamic extremist recruiters. It is believed that a number of jihadists are travelling through Europe for this purpose. According to unconfirmed information, German authorities were aware of around 300 recorded attempts made by jihadists to recruit refugees who were trying to enter Europe by April 2016.

But despite all of the evidence to the contrary, we're sure this next wave of 160,000 migrants are all peaceful folks who just want their opportunity to assimilate and succeed in western culture.

in re the EU demand for MOAR hajjiis, here's the second law of the SJW: "SJW's always double down."

Wait, I thought the EU existed because the Euro-states made agreements, not because they were beholden to the EU...


I think Haus, Petar, Hans, along with Vlad need to get over there and talk some sense into the EU.

"The EU has been trying to convince members states "to do their duty,"..."

The duty of the member states should be to their citizens.

I'm with Victoria Nuland: "FUCK THE EU!"  What is with the people of these nations?  Are they completely brain-wiped?!?

Every last one of these migrants needs to be shipped home. No arguments; no deliberation; no welfare; no courtesy rapes; just SHIP 'EM HOME.

LA_Goldbug's picture

Mrs. V. Nudelman is from the US Swamp. She said what is obvious to those paying attention. When she said "FUCK THE EU!" I suspect she was thinking that the EU is NOT going to decide how think will work in Ukraine. Hence orders will be coming from the US Neo-Cohens, her family.

I hope you are aware what else she said in that infamous conversation,

"Nuland: [Breaks in] I think Yats is the guy who's got the economic experience, the governing experience. He's the... what he needs is Klitsch and Tyahnybok on the outside. He needs to be talking to them four times a week, you know. I just think Klitsch going in... he's going to be at that level working for Yatseniuk, it's just not going to work."

She was deciding for Ukraine what is good for them. Now its a complete shit hole from which people are leaving by the millions headed West !!!

very true.  she worked for clinton, cheney and obama and now she's finally out.  thank you president trump.

it looks to me like the policy of seven countries in five years drives the poor brown muslims to europe where the eu insists they be taken in basically sight unseen, isis gets to encourage some to attack the nato helpers of the u.s. and israel which then elects the likes of le pen, etc. destroying the euro and, possibly, the eu itself and, down the road a bit, nato.  nice work israel; good going cia!

Well then, clearly sport, you can put up a few of these refugees!

The EU leaders in Brussells walk around with several bodyguards and live in mansions....never rub shoulders with a brown person, let alone a Muslim.

Yet they want to citizens to be burned alive in cages or gang raped while walking to school...or run over at the Christmas market.

People of America have woken up to the threats and elected Trump but we see how hard the extremists fight to oppress the middle class in USA so it must be as hard or harder for the European muiddle class to survive and replace their vicious leaders.

Anyone making that much money is definitely sucking dick.

NidStyles: "Wait, I thought the EU existed because the Euro-states made agreements, not because they were beholden to the EU..."

this is still correct

nothing happens in the EU without the contries' governments making an agreement, first. nothing

those agreements are still made in what English-speaking press continues to call "summits" of national governments, instead of calling them what they are, EU Council meetings. The EU Council being the key body in everything called EU

and then, you have the EU Commission, which is nothing more then a glorified secretary service of that key body

and then, you have EU Commissioners talking... and threatening... fines

note the countries listed in the article. first, the commissioner talking. a Greek

then Germany and France, insisting

not mentioned, Italy, which has lots of refugees from Africa

now, do the math. what do you need for a qualified voting result in favour of some "rebalancing" of those refugees?

Italy, France and Germany together make 50% of everything EU. add Greece, and you have a majority even without adding other countries

for an agreement and for the push to... fines, if this agreement is not implemented

which is not, which is being resisted, by countries that have their own armed forces, while the EU talks about armed forces

"...along with Vlad need to get over there and talk some sense into the EU"

and that would be more... talk?

I'm all for some common sense. like recognizing an article that is all about... talk

talk about... more talk and no action whatsoever

but no, the EU has to stand for something that it is not. like a federal government, which the US, China and Russia have, complete with immense power, including military forces

the article does not even mention what fines this commissioner could really raise

at what point do you realize that you have been had?

at what point do you go and say: "wait a moment, are you kidding me?"

you... don't. you cherish the false picture of a powerful EU federal gov, and plenty of media caters to your view. literally, you get what you ask for: getting kidded

Frederico's picture

"What do you need for a qualified voting result in favour of some "rebalancing" of those refugees?"


This is all sweet and lovely, but how about no fucking refugees?

Since when has Europe a moral obligation to receive refugees that CLEARLY are not working?

The people are saying: enough. It's no surprise right-wing movements are getting traction all over Europe.

Fix this shit.

Ghordius's picture

and how do you propose to "fix" Turkey?

which was the number one reason for refugees coming over the Balkan Route?

meanwhile, war refugees are caused by wars

yes, they are getting some traction. do you have also solutions? to how to fix this shit?

frankly, I see very little of that, and a lot of "rah, rah, rah" that leads to more such shit

Old Europe's picture

War refugees are true war refugees in their neighbor countries only, not in the countries with the highest living standards and social  benefits or most beautiful women worldwide.

People fleeing from war do not have a right to be accepted as "Asylum Seelkers" also, because this is an individual right, not one for whole countries and populations and it´s rstricted to the first safe country they reach as well.

They had a right to live safrely in the modern refugee camps in Jordan, Turkey etc. where the UNHCR all of a sudden cut the money for food and housing by 50% to make these millions move illegally to northern Europe.

And what about the obligations of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, UAE, Dubai....There´s plenty of land, plenty of money and they share the same faith and culture.

Imagine all German refugees from the eastern parts of Germany at the end of WWII would have insisted to flee to Monaco by the millions, because "everybody`s rich there and lots of hot blonde women to be laid".

The EU has made it clear that it wants to make all of Europe a concentration camp for white Europeans designed to replace, expropriate and finally expel them. The EU is both a prison and a death camp for the peoples of Europe.

The Brussels EU is one walking hate crime against humanity and it´s end will be an appropriate one for sure.





Ghordius's picture

the last two sentences you wrote are exactly what I meant with "frankly, I see very little of that, and a lot of "rah, rah, rah" that leads to more such shit"

TeaClipper's picture

The EU Commission is an institution of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding EU treaties and maneging the day to day business of the EU. And you are fake news.



Ghordius's picture

rubbish, complete rubbish

nothing originates from the Commission. particularly not proposing legislation on their own

it's always first in the EU Council. and no, national governments are not keen on highlighting this little fact, particularly not the British

and this is not fake news, and very simple to prove: EU Council votings on anything always precede whatever happens afterwards, be it a Commission draft... which has to be approved by the EU Council first, or any other thing else

they are commissioned officials. it's in the very word. besides, they have too to be appointed first. by whom? first, by their own national governments, and then by the EU Coucil as a whole, and only then by the EU Parliament

I think I remember Marine Le Pen saying in an interview that EU can charge a government 200k Euros (or 250k) per rapefugee if they refuse to admit them into the country.

Gee, maybe the EU should just kick them out of the Union for not playing ball. No? Yeah, didn't think so. Someone needs to shoot these technocrats in the head. They are hopeless.

Majority of European people want this to stop.  In fact, we want mass deportations of the invaders, they are a threat to our national security, our economic security, our culture, our values & beliefs, and our race.    Enforcing this on the people of Europe is going to lead to another Hitler emerging, and everything that goes with that type of leadership.

It's a good thing the EU was formed to forever prevent European nations from going to war against each other.

Kaeako's picture

Understandable that the Greeks and Italians want them off their hands, ASAP. You can see the desperation in Germany as well, with the people flocking to Schultz. Schultz, a veteran of EU politics, is seen as someone who understands how to use the EU to force the members to do their "fair share". Of course the average German won't admit that the Merkel policy of invitation and open borders was a mistake because they've been conditioned to think that Brad Pitt will come and smash their face in with a shovel if they say a wrong word.

thisandthat's picture

Schultz, the one that wants to give non-citizen migrants the right to vote? Yeah, average Germans...

Kaeako's picture

Indeed. The only real alternative to Merkel, and even more of an europhile than Merkel. Should Merkel lose it can be seen as an all-in bid on Europe by the Germans, even when some of their core beliefs clash with Schultz's. Eurobonds, even outright debt relief are on the table, which also makes him the ideal candidate to a lot of ZeroHedge posters who seem convinced Germany needs to do more for the periphery.

LA_Goldbug's picture

"the periphery" needs to clean their houses. They need to do what Hungary is doing. Disengaging from EU and their Anglo-Zionist Cultural Warriors. It is a Cultural War that is being waged on Europe AND the USA. Europe is only now being hard hit with this.

In the US it was done slowly as the Good Times fooled nearly everyone as to how the re-engineering of the society was being carried out. Hell, some US city neighborhoods are foreign countries. Welcome to the city seen in "Blade Runner".

LA_Goldbug's picture

Schultz is a false hope. Unless a politicians speaks AND then DOES as Le Pen SPEAKS at the moment, you can just assume it is the old game of bait and switch.

Lets not forget in all this excitement who CREATED the conditions for these people TO BE WILLING to move. USA, Brits, Israel and the Saudis. It a package deal of snake charmers called Neo-Cohens/Anglo-Zionists. More to be found on the SAKER,

Saudi Arabia has not taken even one refugee in. They know how worthless other countries Muslims are.

Fireman's picture

Blaming the ignorant, prejudiced, islamofascists for destroying Europe and the USA is akin to blaming GMO's for poisoning humanity and not the Monsantos and evil chemists that spawn such filth. We are the ones that tolerate our evil governments and the arms industries of our respective aristocracies in destroying these backward Muslim countries in order to steal their resources from which we supposedly "benefit". However, the real source of the cancer is to be found in the liberal leftist politically "correct" scum that has thrived like a fungus in our own midst, the shills that opened the floodgates to the perversion of globalism and IS lam. Vote the garbage out and send the free loaders and "religious" mutants back to where they came from...perhaps with all our treacherous political hacks in tow.

The real question is who weaponized the ignorant hordes of Muslims and the libtard, socialist, self-hating, filth we call "our leaders" and why? The answer is the same folks who are destroying North Africa and the entire Middle East for the agenda of the chosen. 

"In his book «Praktischer Idealismus», (1920) Austrian Count Richard Von Coudenhove Kalergi indicates that the residents of the future "United States of Europe" will not be the People of the Old Continent, but a kind of sub-humans, products of miscegenation. He clearly states that the peoples of Europe should interbreed with Asians and colored races, thus creating a multinational flock with no quality and easily controlled by the ruling elite.

Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination and
then the elimination of nations with the use of ethnic separatist movements and
mass migration. In order for Europe to be controlled by an elite, he wants to
turn people into one homogeneous mixed breed of Blacks, Whites and Asians. Who
is is this elite however? Kalergi is particularly illuminating on this:

The man of the future will be of mixed race. The races
and classes of today will gradually disappear due to the elimination of space,
time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-negroid race of the future, similar
in appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples
and the diversity of individuals. Instead of destroying European
Judaism, Europe, against her will, refined and educated this people, driving
them to their future status as a leading nation through this artificial
evolutionary process. It's not surprising that the people that escaped from the
Ghetto-Prison, became the spiritual nobility of Europe. Thus, the
compassionate care given by Europe created a new breed of aristocrats. This
happened when the European feudal aristocracy crashed because of the
emancipation of the Jews [due to the actions taken by the French Revolution]

"Count" Richard Coudenhove Kalergi’s Plan outlined by Gerd Honsik

“Kalergi proclaims the abolition of the right of self-determination, ... the elimination of nations by means of ethnic separatist movements or mass allogeneic (genetically dissimilar) immigration to create a multiethnic flock without quality, easily controllable by the ruling class. Kalergi characterized the multiethnic flock as cruel and unfaithful but maintained the elite must deliberately create them in order to achieve their own superiority: ‘Then the elite will first eliminate democracy – the rule of the people. Next, the elite will eliminate the people via miscegenation, thereby replacing the ruling white race with an easily controllable mestizo race. By abolishing the principle of equality of all before the law, avoiding and punishing any criticism of minorities, and protecting minorities with special laws, the masses will be suppressed.’'

5 wise members of the sect help us understand "the plan" of our
elite masters.

And concerning the rape of her own words supremacist USSAN Israeli Barbara Lerner Spectre explains clearly what their plan is.

Lets hope our friends on ZH not familiar with this criminal Kalergi take the time to find out more and attempt to square what is happening over the last 10-20 yrs. with what this snake was saying.
