Record number of irregular migrant arrivals for July

 - Wednesday, 31 July 2013, 09:00

by Duncan Barry

One day before the end of the month, a record 984 irregular migrants have entered Malta during July, surpassing the July 2008 record of 809 arrivals.

This year’s July figure contrasts sharply with the figures of the same month last year, when only 94 migrants had arrived.

According to statistics provided by the Immigration Police to this portal, so far this year a total of 16 boats carrying 1,294 irregular migrants entered Malta

In 2012, 27 boats carrying 1,890 migrants were reported to have reached Maltese shores.

The record year was 2008, when 2,195 migrants had come to Malta.

Between 2002 and 2012, 16,390 individuals arrived by boat, mainly from Sub-Saharan countries.

Look at how well dressed they are, for sure they MUST be refugees, you can always tell by the latest gear they sport. This is nothing but enforced multiculturalism courtesy of the EU and that is why now that it has been aptly explained to Joseph Muscat, you will not hear a beep from him.

Many of the migrants who come to Malta are Muslims. There are around 6, 000 Muslims in Malta. A small number, but they live in Malta and therefore they should be involved in taking political and social decisions. The Imam should raise his voice regularly. This is the best way for integration. What can be better as Christians and Muslims live peacefully side by side in Malta. There is one mosque in Malta founded in 1978. There are some hundreds churches in Malta, but only one mosque, as already mentioned. I am of the opinion that the Maltese government should take the necessary steps and build some mosques in Malta that Muslims can gather, pray and worship and express their belief. Churches and mosques do play an important role in the lives of believers.  Building mosques will promote integration  and it will create respect and tolerance and a better mutual understanding. Muslims far away from their countries need these special places to strengthen their meaning of life. This will promote peace between religions and integration and acceptance of different cultures will take place.

I suppose you also know that Islam is not a religion as is understood in the West.   It is in fact a political ideology akin to fascism.  It takes into account the political, judicial, legal, social and religious aspect of every man, woman and child from the cradle to the grave.

What I see happening in Europe and elsewhere is this.  Imagine that during the Cold War with the USSR, Western Europe and the US wilfully allowed thousands of Communists to legally immigrate and set up, under the protection of democracy, Communist compounds from which to breed and proselytize and lobby for Communism. Sounds crazy, but this is exactly what they are doing with Islam.

When you have Islam in your country, you also have a rival government waiting in the wings to take over.  And they will wait until there is enough of their numbers, both in immigration and births.   What our leaders are hoping for is to replace our social democracy with a totalitarian fascist regime and that when the takeover is complete, they will be able to rule with them as co-regents.

Taken from the book; "Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat" of Dr. Peter Hammond:

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will for the most part be regarded as a "peace-loving" minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
the U.S. — 0.6%; Australia — 1.5%; Canada – 1.9%; China — 1.8%; Italy — 1.5%; Norway — 1.8%.

At 2% – 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — 2%; Germany — 3.7%; the UK — 2.7%; Spain — 4%; Thailand — 4.6%.

From 5% +, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:
France — 8%;Philippines — 5%; Sweden — 5%; Switzerland — 4.3%;The Netherlands — 5.5%; Trinidad & Tobago — 5.8%.

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

"This will promote peace between religions and integration and acceptance of different cultures will take place."

Where did you come up with this Kurt?  Show me one instance where Muslims are the majority and where Christians and other faiths are allowed to practice freely and not treated as second class citizens or worse, persecuted for their faith?  Where?  In Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Indonesia, - where can a Christian practice freely and openly and be granted equal rights in a majority Muslim nation?


“Christian martyrdom is not a thing of the past. For Christians across the Muslim world today, it is the terrible and burning present.

In this shocking exposé, Raymond Ibrahim documents the appalling sufferings of Christians from Morocco to Indonesia, from Turkey to Nigeria—everywhere, in fact, that Islamic Sharia and the culture it has shaped hold sway. Ibrahim, a Coptic Christian born and raised in America by Egyptian parents, uses his fluent Arabic, his thorough knowledge of Muslim sources, and his contacts in Christian communities across the Islamic world to uncover the truth about the outrageous abuse Christians undergo on a daily basis and to expose and explain the otherwise unfathomable indifference of Western academia, media, and government to the greatest human rights abuse crisis of our time.

In Crucified Again you will learn:

The real source of Muslim violence toward Christians (it's not about race, nationality, or economics)
Why Muslims cannot tolerate Christian worship and Christian freedom
The remarkable consistency in the Muslim persecution of Christians across centuries and continents
The myth of historical Muslim "tolerance"—and how it got started
Why Islamic persecution of Christians is getting worse”

Both political parties shall get their first answer of what the people think about them and their stand in favour of illegal immigrants at the EP elections.

The problem is: there are millions more of them ready to come - unless stopped.

Unless he acts to stop this invasion, which I hope he does, he will be very much one.
