Europe’s Iron Curtain: The Refugee Crisis is about to Worsen

A recent European Council summit in Brussels was meant to articulate a united policy on the burgeoning refugees and migrant crisis. Instead, it served to highlight the bitter divisions among various European countries. Considering the gravity of the matter, Europe’s self-serving policies are set to worsen an already tragic situation. True, several European leaders, including …

Europe Cringes Before Emperor Trump

President Donald Trump says most summit meetings are a waste of time. He’s so right. Most meetings of every kind are a waste of time and energy. The president was certainly right about last week’s NATO summit in Brussels. At least, he livened it up by openly blasting his NATO allies once again for not …

How Israel Helped to Revive Europe’s Ugly Ethnic Nationalisms

Polarisation within western societies on issues relating to migration and human rights has been intensifying over recent weeks and months. To many observers, it looks suspiciously as if an international order in place since the end of the second world – one that emphasised universal rights as a way to prevent dehumanisation and conflict – …

NATO’s Problem Is that Europeans Won’t Fight

President Trump outraged European opinion by denouncing his allies on the far side of the Atlantic for their failure to meet NATO’s spending target of 2% of GDP. Other alliance members, he added, should spend 4% of their output on defense, just like America does. His dudgeon at the Europeans was more than justified: the …

The Refugee Crisis and the Mediterranean Sea – The Largest Graveyard in Modern History

In June 2018 alone, more than 500 refugees drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. Their boats were refused access to land in either Malta, or Italy. They were force-driven back by gun-boats to the North African shores they came from, mostly Libya, but many boats capsized and countless refugees didn’t make it. These are de facto …

The Three Seas’ “via Carpathia” will Complete the Arctic-Mediterranean Corridor

The Polish-led “Three Seas Initiative” aims to streamline a North-South Corridor from Norway to Greece through the creation of the “Via Carpathia” trade route that would prospectively link with the “Baltic Ring” in order to connect the Arctic Ocean with the Mediterranean Sea. The southeastern Polish village of Jasionka hosted the latest forum on the Polish-led …

Liberal Fear Mongering: Bribe Migrant Smugglers or They’ll Turn Into Terrorists

The UK’s Guardian is contributing to senseless fear mongering in propagating the narrative that former migrant smugglers – and assumedly, the sub-Saharan population at large – will turn into terrorists unless they’re basically bribed by the Europeans not to. The EuroRealist Revolution in European Affairs began in Hungary but has since spread to much larger …

Thousands of Refugees Forced Onto Death March Into Sahara Desert

More than 13,000 refugees and migrants, including pregnant women and children, have been force-marched into the Sahara desert by Algerian security forces over the past 14 months, where many of them have died from hunger and exposure. The shocking revelation by the Associated Press was substantiated by videos showing hundreds of migrants stumbling through a …
