A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Germany is facing a problem with refugees who apparently can’t find housing, as the ‘tent city’ photograph above apparently depicts. According to news reports out of Berlin, thousands of refugees have disappeared off the radar, yet no one knows where they are. Have they gone ‘underground’, as some think, waiting for instructions? According to German prosecutor Irich Scherding, “Fifteen to 20 percent of 18,000 refugees are obviously submerged.” Concern and fears grow that ISIS may be involved in controlling the missing.

The refugee crisis in European Union countries apparently is spilling over into geopolitical ramifications insofar as EU member countries now are talking about leaving the EU. The UK’s taxpayers are finding out they will be left paying for student loans by EU citizens, who studied in England but left the country without repaying those loans. What’s the amount? £130 million or roughly U.S. $159,691,956 based upon the conversion rate when I wrote this article.

Sweden has acquired a rather dubious title no one would envy. Malmo, Sweden, is known as the “rape capital of Europe.” The BBC reports, “According to Eurostat, the agency that collects statistical data from all EU countries, in 2015 Sweden had over 162,000 asylum applications or 1,667 asylum seekers for every 100,000 citizens. A large majority of the 2015 asylum seekers – 114,470 – were male, 45,790 of them between 18 and 34 years of age.” [1] A majority of males between 18 and 34 years of age—not families!

However, the following information needs to be factored into the Swedish problem:

The 2012 UN international rape rate comparison showed Sweden to have the highest rate of rape in Europe and the second highest in the world, but the report did not contain data for a total of 63 countries that did not submit any statistics, including, for example, South Africa, where other earlier surveys indicated a very high rape rate. [1]

Italy also has a refugee problem [2].

Greece, too, has a tremendous migrant/refugee problem. According to the EU, there are approximately 60,000 migrants and refugees trapped in Greece! [3] The EXPRESS reports:

Aid worker Nikos Gionakis says, “But they are stranded in dire conditions, in camps with little to no information about what will happen to them. Generally, I can say people are not treated as humans.”The revelations come as EU foreign ministers meet in Brussels today to discuss how to prevent a fresh influx of migrants crossing the Mediterranean to Italy from Libya.

Brussels wants to put an agreement in place with Tripoli similar to the one it sealed with Turkey last year, under which economic migrants making the crossing to Europe are returned back across the sea. [3]

And yet, Americans don’t read about these refugee stories in newspapers or see them on the nightly news. Why?

Here is some idea of the scope of immigrant problems facing countries:
Turkey, in 2016, had over 2.7 million Syrian refugees.
In January of 2016, 500,000 Syrians were in Saudi Arabia.
By the end of August 2014, 3 million Syrian refugees fled to Lebanon (1.14 million); Jordan (608,000); and Turkey (815,000). [4]
Syria’s population before the current conflict and crisis was around 22 million.
Syrian and Palestinian Arabs made up approximately 74% of the population.
The Kurds made up approximately 9 to 10% of the population.
Syrian Turkmen, 4 to 5%.
Assyrians, 3 to 4%.
And the balance was made up of several minority ethnic groups.
Religions in 2006: Islam 87% of the population; Christian, 10%; and Druze, 3%. [5]

Wikipedia’s website “Refugees of the Syrian Civil War” has a chart listing countries that have taken in Syrian refugees.

The Netherlands, however, is solving their refugee/immigrant crisis in a rather unique manner—by housing migrants in closed correctional facilities [6].

One has to wonder when this global crisis of human suffering will end. When will tyrants who break up countries for whatever geopolitical reasons realize that humans are catching on to their game plan? When will the one percent ‘elites’ put their money where their mouths are to correct this untenable human suffering some controlling interests apparently have contributed to?
