August, 7 2017 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - There is now clear evidence of a pattern of collusion between ruthless Libyan migrant traffickers and those manning the NGO affiliated “rescue” ships that pick up mostly African economic migrants near the Libyan coast. The Italian justice authorities belatedly found out that there is coordination and cooperation between them. For forty days, an Italian undercover agent was on board of one of these ships, made shocking discoveries and reported his findings to the prosecutor in sourthern Italy. Conversations between criminal Libyan migrant traffickers and so-called rescuers were also monitored, being mindful that assisting in clandestine immigration is punishable under Italian law.
The undercover agent was on board of the “rescue ship” Iuventa, sailing under the Dutch flag, but owned by the German non-governmental organizaton [NGO] “Jugend Rettet,” [translation: Save the Young] This radical leftist youth organization was founded in Berlin in 2015 with a view of profitably serving as an intermediary in the illegal immigration of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from Africa who are deliberately put in small boats in the Mediterranean by well-paid North African migrant traffickers, after which the fate of the migrants are at best a gamble. This writer reported last month about these and related activities [see, Emerson Vermaat, “Humanitarian” Organizations In League With Libyan Migrant Traffickers In Mediterranean Sea , PipeLineNews.org, 7.10.17]
The Italian undercover agent discovered that the crew of “Iuventa” was very friendly towards the traffickers, allowing them to go back to Libya in their own boat. Video footage made by the undercover agent shows that crew members and two traffickers were waving to each other. There was no life-threatening situation for the largely economic migrants on board of the trafficker’s small boat because the sea was calm. Therefore, this was not a rescue operation, but assistance to clandestine immigration.
Monitored telephone conversations showed that the captain of the “Iuventa” informed the migrant traffickers about the time he would leave the Italian port, so that the traffickers were able to prepare themselves for the next transfer of illegal immigrants. The captain and the traffickers agreed that the “rescue operation” would be carried out without informing the Italian Coast Guard. The German NGO also promised the traffickers that they would not pass on video footage or photos to the Italian justice authorities. The traffickers did not want to have the Italian Coast Guard around because the Coast Guard usually destroys their boats.
“Iuventa” also picked up migrants in the Libyan coastal waters where their lives were not in danger. This, too, is nothing else but assistance to clandestine immigration.
Pending further investigation, the Italian authorities do not allow the “Iuventa” to leave the Italian port.
Today’s most serious security threats are migrant trafficking and terrorism
Africa’s enormous population growth poses a direct threat to the Western world (also to Israel, by the way). Africa’s population is expected to double over the next 40 years, “VOA News” reported. “According to the Population Reference Bureau, the world’s poorest region will more than double in population, from 1.1 billion to 2.4 billion.” Between early January and early August 2017, about 100,000 African economic migrants arrived in Italy alone. Many Italian villages are facing a rapid and unwelcome influx of young frustrated African males and West African prostitutes.
Dutch columnist Martin Sommer, who writes for the liberal Amsterdam-based newspaper “De Volksrant,” visited the south Italian city of Naples. He talked to the mayor of a suburb with 15,000 inhabitants. This suburb faced an unprecedented influx of Nigerians. The mayor told Sommer that he did raise the alarm many times, but to no avail. “He does not know any longer whether it is Italian or the Nigerian mafia who are in control of his municipality." (Sommer, a historian as well, has frequently been criticized by liberals for his columns, some of them even requested his editor-in-chief to dismiss him.)
“Nieuwsuur,” a leading newsprogram on Dutch TV, reported on August 5, 2017, that about one third of all Africans want to migrate to Europe. And they don’t want to stay in Italy. A lot of them already traveled to the richer countries of northern Europe.
Right now, sub-Saharan Africans are causing tremendous problems in Europe’s big cities, especially in Naples, Rome, Milan, Berlin, Frankfurt, Brussels and Paris. They sleep in parks and railway stations, sell women as prostitutes, sell drugs, rape women. There are not just a few war criminals, former child soldiers and Muslim terrorists among the Africans who entered and are still entering Europe. Others attack truck drivers in the North Sea coastal areas of France and Belgium, demanding that these defenseless drivers somehow smuggle them accross the Channel to Britain. Quite recently, three truck drivers were beaten up by African “refugees” near the Belgium port of Gentbrugge, the Dutch daily newspaper “De Telegraaf” reported. These angry young men also caused damage to the trucks. Truck drivers in France and Belgium who have to cross the English Channel by boat or train (Eurotunnel) don’t feel safe any longer. Many of them are terrified. This has been going on for years now. Albanians are also causing very serious problems.
Most sub-Saharan and North African and all Albanian asylum seekers are economic migrants. Consequently, their applications for asylum are invariably turned down. Many of them want to try once again in Britain, but the British don’t want them either. Illegal immigration and radical Islam are Europe’s most urgent problems now. Martin Sommer once wrote that the only way to solve this problem is to send the African migrants back to their home countries. “Let them apply for asylum over there,” he wrote. If these home countries refuse to take them back Europe must cut off aid or give money to these governments in exchange for effective measures to stop the migration flow. This is already occuring in Niger. Spain took the same measures when it had to deal with an unwelcome flow of economic migrants from Senegal.
ISIS is smuggling operatives from Libya to Europe and the group is also profiting from refugee trafficking: “Traffickers have to pay 50 percent of their profits to ISIS in exchange for the right to sail, so counting the migrants also establishes the amount of tax each boat has to pay,” Loretta Napolleoni writes in her shocking book “Merchants of Men: How Jihadists and ISIS Turned Kidnapping and Refugee Trafficking Into a Multibillion-dollar Business.” “In 2015 this tax generated about $ 20 million for every ten thousand migrants.”
Why do you think so many British want to leave the European Union? Because Europe just cannot protect its external borders against the massive influx of non-Western migrants and the European Convention on Human Rights turned out to be favorable for terror suspects and Muslim extremists the British government wanted to deport. These extremists often successfully applied for asylum in Britain, yet they subsequently began to plot against their new home country. And their expensive lawyers told British courts that their clients could not be deported.
It was back in 2002 or 2003 that I interviewed Omar Bakri Mohammed for Dutch TV (“2Vandaag” now “1Vandaag”). He was originally from Syria. I still remember quite well how this London-based hate cleric heaped praise on Osama bin Laden and the “Magnificent Nineteen” – the 9/11 hijackers, that is. His successor joined ISIS.
