Libyan Government Issues Gaddafiesque Threat To Flood Europe With MORE Migrants

One of the three self-declared governments currently fighting each other for power in Libya, in the wake of 2011's FUKUS axis (France, Uk, USA) regime change war which turned Africa's most prosperous nation into a failed state, has issued a Gaddafi style ultimatum, warning that it will 'flood Europe with hundreds of thousands of new migrants if the European Union (EU) declines to recognise the Islamic State political wing as the legal government.

The threat that the IS faction in Libya will charter boats to ferry increasing numbers of African murderers, rapists, mutilators, head amputators and professional useless bastards or brain surgeons as they like to claim across the Mediterranean was made by Libya’s General National Congress (GNC). The GNC part of the Libya Dawn coalition which took control of Tripoli and the coastal areas from whence most migrant boats set off for Europe last year. Libya Dawn and forces controlled the internationally - recognised House of Representatives government have fought an inconclusive civil war for control of the western cities since the fall of the Gadaffi regime.

The GNC’s foreign affairs spokesman said it currently spends tens of millions of pounds a year on detention centres and repatriation programs which prevent Mediterranean crossings. Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Jamal Zubia said a continued refusal to recognise the authority of the GNC could see the policy reversed:

“To be honest, I have advised my government many times already that we should hire boats and send these illegal immigrants to Europe. We are protecting the gates of Europe, yet Europe does not recognise us and does not want to recognise us. So why should we stop the migrants here?”

Vincenzo Camporini, Italy’s former defence chief, criticised the EU’s refusal to recognise the GNC. He told the EUobserver website: “The EU should be more flexible, more realistic, in its discussions with local authorities.”

Libya has always been a centre for sub-Saharan African migrants trying to enter Europe illegally, the chaos left following the fall of Gaddafi has caused the numbers leaving the north African nation in unseaworthy boats to surge out of control.

Last year an estimated 170,000 migrants arrived in Italy on boats from Libya and yesterday the United Nations refugee agency said that 218,394 crossed the Mediterranean to Europe in the month of October alone – a monthly record.

Libya does not, in fact, ignore people smuggling on migrant boats. Large numbers of people who enter the country illegally are detained and the International Organisation for Migration assists local authorities running voluntary repatriation programmes. However, local officials are said to resent deploying their own resources to combat what they see as Europe’s problem, a consequence of politically correct border control policies and over generous welfare systems.

This is not the first time Libya has threatened to flood Europe with migrants. In 2005, during a visit to Italy he warned: “We need support from the European Union to stop this army trying to get across from Libya, which is their entry point. Colonel Gaddafi threatened to “turn Europe black” if Europe did not pay him £4.1 billion in aid a year. The threat was repeated by "Mad Dog Muammar" as the Colonel was affectionately known, during the FUKUS axis bombing campaign.

Mr Zubia said: “Gaddafi did this threat and brought Europe to its knees.

“You need to remember that we are doing your border control for you. We cannot stay forever doing this craziness, spending lots of money on nothing.”

“At the moment there is a dangerous level of immigration from Africa into Europe and we don’t know what will happen. What will be the reaction of the white Christian Europeans to this mass of hungry, uneducated, uncivilised Africans?

“We don’t know if Europe will remain an advanced and cohesive continent or if it will be destroyed by this barbarian invasion. We have to imagine that this could happen but before it does we need to work together.”

Critics have warned that a Western-backed move to remove President Assad from office in Syria will leave behind a power vacuum and chaos similar to that in Libya and trigger another immigrant invasion. Many of those allegedly arriving from Syria as refugees now are actually coming from Turkey and elsewhere, having been taken in by the outrageous promises and left wing European anti - civilisation groups, that free houses, medicine and a wage for doing nothing await them in Europe.

Russian Civilian Aircraft Downed In Sinai: Cui Bono?

The news has been dominated by the mid air explosion of a Russian operated Airbus A321 airliner over Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, killing all 220+ passengers flying home to St. Petersburg after a holiday on the Red Sea. There are certain similarities to the destruction of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over a civil war zone in Ukraine and the usual propaganda wars about who was responsible are now going on.

Islamic fundamentalist as active in Sinai, there is ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine in nearby Gaza and the US vs Russia proxy war in Syria goes on. So how do we make a reasonable guess at what happened?

Marcus Tullius Cicero said, "Always ask "Cui bono?" Who benefits.

So looking at the various claims being made by involved parties such as the governments of Russia and Egypt, the leaders of ISIS and Al Qaeda, and other parties who, on the surface do not appear to be involved, and leaving aside the propaganda mainstream media are passing off as news reporting, let's ask who can gain from this and how, if as some aviation experts are suggesting, the aircraft broke up in mid air because of a bomb planted on board; as ISIS are claiming, they shot it down with a surface to air missile (SAM), a claim dismissed by the Russian aviation controller; or as certain European and US news organisations are trying to suggest that the aircraft crashed because the uncaring Russian regulators could not be bothered maintaining it properly.

The ISIS claim is unlikely. According to flight radar data, confirmed by Egyptian air traffic control, the plane was flying at 30,000 feet when whatever happened occurred. Islamic State guerillas in Sinai have surface-to-air weapons but only of types no effective above altitudes of 10,000 feet.

Another suggestion, that ISIS infiltrated the airport at the Egyptian tourist resort Sharm el-Sheikh where the plane was was coming from and smuggled a bomb on board is more feasible but still unlikely. The usual travel arrangements for Sharm el-Sheikh are groups of tourists on package holidays where anyone not belonging to a group would be suspicious. Security at Sharm el-Sheikh is usually tight, the resort is in the middle of one of the most politically volatile reas on the planet.

There have also been reports that preliminary investigations point to a technical failure, but these have been brought into the public domain by western mainstream media and seem to emanate from sources in Washington.

The fact that Islamic State, the wannabe and IraqCaliphate that wants to dominate from Spain to Shanghai claimed responsibility can and will be used by propagandists, in Russia to justify an escalation of operations in Syria and Iraq. Since the days of Ivan The Terrible, Russia has been paranoid about its vulnerable southern borders and the Islamic fundamentalism preached by ISIS threatens to stir up a lot of trouble in the former Soviet buffer states to the south of Russia and Siberia.

But also the US government and its European allies, whose objective in supporting Ilamic militant groups has been to bring down the Assad regime in Syria could use it to demonstrate that ISIS now poses a threat to western interests and justify firing a salvo of cruise missile from warships in the eastern Mediterranean on "IS targets" in Syria and Iraq? And who would complain if some of those cruise missiles hit targets in areas loyal to Assad?

All this is mere speculation, but with the world drifting inexorably towards a major conflict between east and west and official news channels having shown they cannot be trusted, we have a right to specuilate. Experience tells us we would be foolish to trust the elite.

That IS claims to have taken down an airliner shows that it has intent to do such. That ought to end the stupid arguments of the Obama administration that it will be necessary to equip and work with IS towards middle east peace or to let the caliphate live and prosper. The claim will also the end to any attempt to give serious air defense weapons to "moderate insurgents" in Syria. The weapons could easily (as they already have) end up in Al-Qaeda or IS hands and it is now clear what they would be doing had they access to advanced weapons.
