Europe's Migrant Crisis: Millions More Still To Come

Authored by Soren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

  • More than six million migrants are waiting in countries around the Mediterranean to cross into Europe, according to a classified German government report leaked to Bild.
  • "Young people all have cellphones and they can see what's happening in other parts of the world, and that acts as a magnet." — Michael Møller, Director of the United Nations office in Geneva.
  • "The biggest migration movements are still ahead: Africa's population will double in the next decades... Nigeria [will grow] to 400 million. In our digital age with the internet and mobile phones, everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle.... Eight to ten million migrants are still on the way." — Gerd Müller, Germany's Development Minister.

The African Union-European Union (AU-EU) summit, held in in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, on November 29-30, 2017, has ended in abject failure after the 55 African and 28 European leaders attending the event were unable to agree on even basic measures to prevent potentially tens of millions of African migrants from flooding Europe.

Despite high expectations and grand statements, the only concrete decision to come out of Abidjan was the promise to evacuate 3,800 African migrants stranded in Libya.

More than six million migrants are waiting in countries around the Mediterranean to cross into Europe, according to a classified German government report leaked to Bild. The report said that one million people are waiting in Libya; another one million are waiting in Egypt, 720,000 in Jordan, 430,000 in Algeria, 160,000 in Tunisia, and 50,000 in Morocco. More than three million others who are waiting in Turkey are currently prevented from crossing into Europe by the EU's migrant deal with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The former head of the British embassy in Benghazi, Joe Walker-Cousins, warned that as many as a million migrants from countries across Africa are already on the way to Libya and Europe. The EU's efforts to train a Libyan coast guard was "too little and too late," he said. "My informants in the area tell me there are potentially one million migrants, if not more, already coming up through the pipeline from central Africa and the Horn of Africa."

The President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani, said that Europe is "underestimating" the scale and severity of the migration crisis and that "millions of Africans" will flood the continent in the next few years unless urgent action is taken.

In an interview with Il Messagero, Tajani said there would be an exodus "of biblical proportions that would be impossible to stop" if Europe failed to confront the problem now:

"Population growth, climate change, desertification, wars, famine in Somalia and Sudan. These are the factors that are forcing people to leave.

 

"When people lose hope, they risk crossing the Sahara and the Mediterranean because it is worse to stay at home, where they run enormous risks. If we don't confront this soon, we will find ourselves with millions of people on our doorstep within five years.

 

"Today we are trying to solve a problem of a few thousand people, but we need to have a strategy for millions of people."

Just days before the AU-EU summit, Tajani called for a "Marshall Plan for Africa" — a €40 billion ($48 billion) long-term investment plan to boost education and job opportunities on the continent to dissuade people from leaving. He warned that spiraling population growth in Africa will be a demographic "bomb" that could push millions of Africans to Europe. "Without a strategy we will have terrorism, illegal immigration, instability," he said.

More than half of the global population growth between now and 2050 will occur in Africa, according to a new UN report, "World Population Prospects: The 2017 Revision." Africa's population is expected to jump by 1.3 billion, from 1.2 billion in 2017 to 2.5 billion in 2050. Between 2017 and 2050, the populations of 26 African countries are projected to expand to at least double their current size.

Much of Africa's population increase will occur in Nigeria, currently the world's 7th most populous country, according to the UN. By 2050, Nigeria will surpass the United States to become the world's third-largest country by population, behind India and China (the population of India is expected to surpass that of China by 2024).

Beyond 2050, Africa is forecast to be the only region in the world still experiencing "substantial population growth" — the continent's share of the global population is forecast to increase from 17% in 2017 to 40% by 2100, according to the report.

Africa currently is the youngest continent in the world: 60% of Africa's population is under 25, compared to 32% in North America and 27% in Europe.

The EU's 28 states have a GDP of $18 trillion, nine times Africa's $2 trillion.

The director of the United Nations office in Geneva, Michael Møller, has warned that Europe must prepare for the arrival of millions more migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. In an interview with The Times, Møller, a Dane, said:

"What we have been seeing is one of the biggest human migrations in history. And it's just going to accelerate. Young people all have cellphones and they can see what's happening in other parts of the world, and that acts as a magnet."

German Development Minister Gerd Müller has echoed that warning:

"The biggest migration movements are still ahead: Africa's population will double in the next decades. A country like Egypt will grow to 100 million people, Nigeria to 400 million. In our digital age with the internet and mobile phones, everyone knows about our prosperity and lifestyle."

Müller added that only 10% of those currently on the move have reached Europe: "Eight to ten million migrants are still on the way."

Writing for the Financial Times, Gideon Rachman explained Europe's predicament:

"One possible reaction for Europe is to accept that migration from the rest of the world is inevitable—and embrace it wholeheartedly. Europe's debt-ridden economies need an injection of youth and dynamism. Who will staff their old-age homes and building sites if not immigrants from the rest of the world?

 

"But even those Europeans who make the case for immigration tend to argue that, of course, newcomers to the continent must all accept 'European values.' That may be unrealistic... Many immigrants from the Middle East and Africa bring much more conservative and sexist attitudes with them. It will take more than a few civics classes to change that....

 

"It may be possible for island nations surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, such as Japan or Australia, to maintain strict controls on immigration. It will be all but impossible for an EU that is part of a Eurasian landmass and is separated from Africa only by narrow stretches of the Mediterranean."

Hopefully. But more probably this is the future Negro-Eurasian race of rootless atomised individuals who are too low IQ and too detached from their history and identities to understand who controls them. How proud Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi would be to see his vision realised, as the founder of the Paneuropean Union, which served as the inspiration for the European Union, and the winner of the first prestigious Charlemagne Prize, whose events are always attended by Europe's best. "In his book Practical Idealism, written in 1925, he describes the future of Jews in Europe and of European racial composition with the following words:[45]The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today's races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals. [...]Instead of destroying European Jewry, Europe, against its own will, refined and educated this people into a future leader-nation through this artificial selection process. No wonder that this people, that escaped Ghetto-Prison, developed into a spiritual nobility of Europe. Therefore a gracious Providence provided Europe with a new race of nobility by the Grace of Spirit. This happened at the moment when Europe's feudal aristocracy became dilapidated, and thanks to Jewish emancipation."

People in Africa should STOP FUCKING!Why on earth don't the EU, WHO, UN, Red Cross or Red Crescent Moon start handing out condoms?As Dindu Nuffins pointed out, it's all part of the sick Coudenhove-Kalergi NWO Plan, never mind how many people drown in the Mediterranean, never mind how many people die of AIDS or Ebola in Africa.Once again the Germans are the mad professors of the EU, and they are doing what they always have done: economic and social engineering. Hilter and Marx combined in Angela Merkel. Heil to the EUSSR!

Keep in mind that Kalergi was writing about this Great Replacement of the European peoples in 1925, long before Hitler came into power. The Nazis read his book and knew about the Kalergi Plan, as surely as they saw the perverted smut and "sex research" of the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, where study of transgenderism was first pioneered. You can't get rid of stuff like this with limited war. In order to understand Hitler, first you have to understand that the forces he fought were not France and Britain, which he tried to offer peace.

It's cultural, and for a reason. infant death rates are very high in Africa so they keep having children to compensate. Along came civilization and, boom, birth death rates drop (not to western standards, however) but the need to breed continues. Also, in many tribes infanticide was allowed in days past. No more. Western aid missions have now lessened that.  The population of Africa used to be maintained by the amount of food produced. Not anymore.Poor nutrition leads to lower IQ scores. But the guy firing an AK-47 only has to be 70-80. Perfect soldiers, nothing to lose.Funny, they also still burn leaded gasoline in some parts of Africa. Lead is another IQ killer.

Hmm, with the European armies having problems finding young people to serve, that will be difficult. Look at the bureaucratic setup of today's armies. We would need young men motivated to fight, not demanding much, maybe a good place in society after service. The French have something like that, "Légion étrangère". Anyone having an idea how to find some 1'000'000 young men fit for this service?

No matter what it costs, spare no expense, as many ships as needed.  As soon as they hit the shore they must get put right back on a boat and get sent directly back to Africa.  No matter how many times it takes, keep sending them back.  No matter how many billions you have to spend to do it.  You must drill it in to their heads that as soon as they land, they will go directly back home.

At least in the UK we have told Terrorists / Economic migrants to BREXIT OFF... latest figures show inflows dropping dramatically but still a long way to go.

Said the Brit with the Muslim Mayor of his capitol city. You didn't turn back shit. You'll get your quota of ONE MILLION HIV/Hep-infected niggers, just like the rest of Europe. You even get a splayed-out, half-bred mongrel half-a-Black American feminist whore in the Royal Palace soon. Because that's what you get when you elect women like May and have royal pussies like Harry & Company..When the Blacks overturn the Royal Family, that will be a great day..

Australia has been turning the arrogant little fucks back for ages. You turn up by boat, you guarantee you will not be settled in Australia! How fucken arrogant, you turn up by boat, after paying some George Soros funded freak and demand to be given shelter, food, wage, and women.

You guys already have your share of chimps. I like the anti-immigrant stance (It isn't actually, it's just a demand that you bring something to the table. With my elecrician's and IT skills, I could get in, but they need that), but man, the Aussie speech codes, the faggots, when did all THAT happen? I thought you guys were all Crocodile Dundee and shit?

I'm in Oz as well. They are letting any feral scumbag who comes in by plane enter the country. They are also creating a crime wave. Indians are into visa and financial fraud. Those  that came by boat are just being exploited so as to convince people like you that  the lying politicians have your interests at heart. They don't. We are being swamped by useless low pay low skill ferals. 600,000 on 457 visas while there are 600,000 young Australians looking for work. Same as the US. Fuck the locals.

The Crazy EU will just let them in.Another example of stupidity - EU- Gibraltar MEPs and legal experts have claimed the veto over the territory’s future after Brexit would give Spain special status among EU nation, when they should be on an equal level. The EU’s Brexit negotiating guidelines stated that the Brexit deal will not apply to Gibraltar without an “agreement between the kingdom of Spain and the UK”. Experts have told the Telegraph that the veto could be illegal under EU law. Spain's Gibraltar claim has NO legitimacy and YES would be illegal. They've effectively signed the territory away 3x times! Gibraltar – Spanish Myths and Agreements (single page): https://www.academia.edu/34608739/Gibraltar_Spanish_Myths_and_Agreements

I'm a White guy, Trump voter no less, in the United States. On the whole, Europe doesn't like my type anyway. They didn't appreciate my relatives and their ilk that were sent supposedly to save their sorry, pussy asses over and over 20th century, they didn't appreciate the efforts of my type during the so-called cold war. They just don't like plain old White folks, even though they're White folks. Follow that. White folks, that hate White folks. And so, with Black Africa emptying out into (now) formerly White Europe, I'm supposed to care?Maybe all those Black folks can focus the attention of all those White folks. Maybe it's time these particular White folks were "Woke". They're fixin' to be..

We also didn't like your type that poured billions into pre-WWII nazi Germany (hello Wall Street) and that funneled off stolen loot by the nazis in the US (hello Prescott Bush). We also didn't like your type such as GW Bush (whom you probably voted for, twice) that decided it was a good idea to start wars in the MENA which now leads to people from there coming to us. We also did not like your types that started the financial crisis of 2007 with their lies, MBS, fraudulent ratings and CDS which cost Europeans banks and financial institutions a whopping 2.4 trillion dollars. Don't worry, it is all forgiven because we have more in common with you than what sets us apart.We like the types that came over in 1918 and 1942-1945 to save our "sorry, pussy asses". We don't like the ones that had nothing to do with it and then tell us we are sorry pussy asses. If these sorry pussy asses like the Netherlands and France had not poured billions of nowadays money in your revolution then you'd still be fighting the red coats.

"This is bullshit fear-mongering fake news presented by the same media that lies to us here" The Swedes are geting their knickers in a twist about something.No-Go Zones, Bombs & Rape: Swedish Police Helpless ...Unless Swedes Break the LawOf course, according to the Swedish government, the problem is white Swedish extremism (and no police resources are spared)! No-Go Zones, "we don't have enough police".
