NGOs are smuggling immigrants into Europe on an industrial scale



For two months, using marinetraffic.com, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from data.unhcr.org. We have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness of a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports,…

Let’s look at some widely circulated explanations before we find the answer. According to some, the conflict is between the presidents of the US and Russia. However, this is not serious. Others argue that we are witnessing a war between Christianity and radical Islam. Or, that it is a battle of the prog…

A decade of recession – with no end in sight – has brought Greek society finally to the breaking point. Unless there is a turnaround soon the days of conventional mainstream politics may be numbered.

Directly after my visit to Moscow I undertook a brief two day visit to Athens. Like my trip to Moscow it was carried out mainly for business reasons, but it also gave me an opportunity to get a sense of the situation in Greece.

The Greek government is claiming that the Greek economy is reviving, and is reporting growth in the last two quarters. I saw no sign of this at all. On the contrary in the few weeks since I was there at the beginning of September, the situation seems to have got if anything significantly worse.

My family home is located within the elite district of Kolonaki, which has until recently seemed immune to the crisis. No longer is this so. The exclusive shops, boutiques and restaurants that us…
