Austria to build fence along parts of border with Slovenia to cope with migrant influx-AP

10/28/15, "Austria to build fence along parts of border with Slovenia," AP, George Jahn, Vienna, Austria

"Austria, a strong critic of fences built to cope with Europe's migrant influx, on Wednesday announced it is joining other nations that have either already erected border barriers or are planning to do so.

Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner insisted the move was aimed solely at bringing order to the unrelenting influx of people entering the country, telling parliament there were no plans "to build a fence around Austria."

Still the project is a major shift for the country, which has preached the sanctity of unimpeded internal EU borders since the migrant crisis intensified earlier this year.

It is likely to run into domestic and international criticism for the signal it sends to other nations struggling to cope with tens of thousands of desperate people"...

[Ed. note: Who made the people "desperate?" Not citizens of Europe. Why not report on the causes, the people and events that led populations of Middle East and African countries to invade lives of innocent people at the invitation of European elites? Because it's not about refugees. It's about erasing Europe's borders.]

(continuing): "moving though their nations. And it could ignite a chain reaction along the land route in Eastern Europe used by those seeking a better life in prosperous European Union nations."...

[Ed. note: How is "seeking a better life" defined as ruining someone else's life? Assuming an EU nation is more "prosperous" than a Middle Eastern nation, how did it get that way? What's stopping a Middle Eastern or African nation from applying the same techniques and achieving the same results? Every country started with nothing. Why isn't wealthy Saudi Arabia taking in any refugees? It would be much better for refugees to be in a familiar warm climate. Answer: Because it's not about refugees. It's about breaking Europe.]

(continuing): "Slovenia, the main entry point into Austria, also said it was ready to build a fence, while Hungary has been championing the success of its razor-wire border fences with Serbia and Croatia and plans another one with Romania.

Greece already erected a barbed wire fence three years ago on a section of its border with Turkey not separated by a river. Bulgaria also has fenced off parts of its boundary to Turkey, while some Baltic states plan to erect fences on border segments with Russia.

But all of these existing or planned fences are either on outer EU borders or between two EU countries where one is not yet part of the Schengen Agreement meant to ensure the free movement of persons.

The Austria-Slovenia border is part of the agreement, however, and any barriers erected on it would be closely watched for possible violations.

Germany, the country of choice for many fleeing regions torn by war and hardship, also signaled its intention to reduce its load of asylum-seekers. Syrian citizens are mostly being accepted, but Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said many of the Afghans pouring into the country will likely be sent home.

"People who come to us as refugees from Afghanistan cannot all expect to be able to stay in Germany," he said, adding that Afghans will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

In Austria, Mikl-Leitner told parliament that the construction of "technical barriers" would begin after about 10 days of planning but gave no exact date for the start of the project.

Speaking to state broadcaster ORF, Mikl-Leitner cited the need for a fence to maintain public order while Defense Minister Gerald Klug said containers or railings could be set up to "control the refugees in an orderly way."

Since Hungary sealed its borders with Serbia and Croatia on Sept. 15 and Oct. 17, thousands of refugees have been flowing into Slovenia daily. From there, they go to Austria with many continuing on to Germany.

Slovenian officials, who say their small nation cannot cope with the influx, have warned for days they would take action if Austria or Germany tried to close off their borders.

Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar firmed up those plans Wednesday.

"If necessary, we are ready to put up the fence immediately" if a weekend plan by EU and Balkan leaders fails to stem the migrant surge, he said.

The usually excellent relations between Germany and Austria have been strained in recent days, with Germany accusing Austria on Wednesday of dropping asylum-seekers near their border after dark without warning....

In recent days, new legislation has come into force in Germany that is aimed at making it easier to send home people who don't qualify for asylum a measure aimed primarily at citizens of Balkan nations such as Albania and Kosovo.

On Afghanistan, de Maiziere argued that Germany and other western nations have poured development aid into the country as well as sending troops and police to help train security forces there. He says Afghanistan's government agrees with Berlin that citizens should stay and help rebuild the country."

European governments "are actively promoting the destruction of their own societies, in the interests of globalisation and the elimination of national identities and cultures."

1/7/15, "The European Civil War: Elites vs People in a Fight for Survival," Gerald Warner, Breitbart London

"Europe is in a state of war: specifically, a civil war between the self-appointed elites who have destroyed much of the continent’s freedom, culture and prosperity and the insurgent populations they have deceived and enslaved. This is a war to the death; only one side can survive the outcome....

The people of Germany, like those of many other European countries, are feeling increasingly desperate about the imposition upon them of mass immigration – an inflow that is unending and which is largely composed of Muslims who are hostile to Christianity and the indigenous culture.

Well, you might think, that is a serious situation; but fortunately Germany is a representative democracy and when citizens make their concerns known to their representatives, the government will surely take steps to help them. Not so. German Chancellor Angela Merkel used her New Year's Eve address to vilify her fellow citizens in the Pegida movement who are protesting against the Islamisation of the West.

According to their chancellor, these people who simply wish to live in a country that is recognisably Germany “have prejudice, coldness, even hatred in their hearts”. Yet the number of asylum seekers in Germany rose to 200,000 in the past year – quadruple the figure for 2012 – and immigration reached a 20-year high. There are similar situations across Europe.

But the governments of Germany, Britain and other EU states are not simply behaving incompetently and allowing their populations to be overrun through their ineptness. On the contrary, they are actively promoting the destruction of their own societies, in the interests of globalisation and the elimination of national identities and cultures.

Merkel has mobilised all the forces at her disposal in an attempt to suppress the incipient rebellion against liberal totalitarianism. All the usual suspects have rallied to the regime: the state broadcaster, Germany’s legacy parties, the financial establishment, the churches…The Catholic Church, whose adherents are the victims of mass murder in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Nigeria and every other country where jihadism is running rampant, switched off the lights of Cologne Cathedral to obscure the Pegida marchers who are trying to prevent a further influx of Muslims into Europe.

Turkeys voting for Christmas? Yes, because senior clerics in Germany are concerned only with trousering the massive handouts the government lavishes on registered denominations: rendering unto Caesar is the priority of organised religion in Germany. What Frau Merkel wants, she gets.

Naturally, Rentamob has organised counter-demonstrations, the ones that will be given prominence by the BBC. Violent leftists are trying to prevent the Pegida marches from spreading beyond Dresden to the rest of Germany, where polls show one German in three would like to join them. It is the Marxist and Anarchist thugs’ responsibility to prevent that, at all costs, by intimidation.

The establishment will try to laugh off the notion that such disparate elements as politicians, bankers and far leftists could be engaged in a joint enterprisea crazed conspiracy theory, surely? Consider, then, the remarks made by Peter Sutherland, the “Father of Globalisation”, Bilderberg organiser and uber-Europhile to a House of Lords committee in 2012.

Migration, the Well-Lunched One declared, was a “crucial dynamic for economic growth” in some EU nations “however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens of those states”. Declining populations in countries like Germany was the “key argument” for “the development of multicultural states”. He condemned Europeans “who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others. And that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”


That is plain speaking. A member of the innermost elite confirms the EU’s role as undermining homogeneity. Europe, formerly the most civilised entity in the world, is to be subsumed into a globalised pool of cheap labour exploited by large corporations and regulated by bureaucrats. All distinctive culture, national identity, the Judaeo-Christian ethic and everything that contributed so greatly to human civilisation are to be expunged in favour of profit for the few and state regulation for the many.

Such soft totalitarianism might seem less frightening than Nazism or Communism, but the end product will be in every way as nightmarish. It must be defeated. Until now, the populations of Britain, Germany and other EU states have behaved like somnambulists, passively accepting the projected New Order.

The one consolation is that some people, though still only a minority, are waking up. The movements expressing their concerns – Pegida, UKIP and others – are Davids facing the Goliath of EU totalitarianism. The forces ranged against them are massive and endowed with all the resources of the state and plutocracy. Yet they are the only hope of saving the nations of Europe from cultural extinction. Their one potential strength is popular support. Will you be with them?"
