“Emboldened” by the success of the current nonwhite invasion of Europe, hundreds of thousands—and potentially millions—of Iraqis now seek to claim “asylum” on the continent, according to a new report by the New York Times.
Writing in an article titled “A New Wave of Migrants Flees Iraq, Yearning for Europe” (New York Times, September 8, 2015) Tim Arango, that paper’s Baghdad bureau chief, reported that growing numbers of Iraqis were “emboldened by the recent wave of news coverage showing their countrymen and fellow Arabs fleeing the war in Syria and reaching Europe.”
According to the International Organization for Migration, some 3.1 million Iraqis have been displaced by the Jewish-lobby US/UK invasion of Iraq, and at least 6,000 registered Iraqis have already invaded Europe via Greece or Italy.
However, as the New York Times pointed out, this is just a “small fraction of the number of Iraqis actually taking the journey,” because most avoid being registered officially. Since mid-August, for example, at least 250 Iraqis a day have been landing on Greek islands, Konstantinos Vardakis, the top European Union diplomat in Baghdad, has said.
The utterly bogus nature of the “refugee” claim is also reflected in the fact that most of these Iraqis are actually flying on Iraqi Airways to Istanbul, and from there are making the crossing into Europe to claim “asylum.” According to the New York Times, Iraqi Airways recently added two new daily flights to Istanbul from Baghdad to accommodate the increased demand.
The fact that these nonwhites are flying to Istanbul, which instantly disqualifies them under all UN descriptions as “asylum seekers,” does not seem to concern them or the European “leaders” who have declared an “open door” policy. Flights from Baghdad to Istanbul cost at least $380 one way, while the average wage in Iraq is around $500 per month.
The New York Times continued:
In recent weeks, the phenomenon has snowballed, as Iraqis track migrants on messaging apps like Viber and WhatsApp and hear back from friends who have reached places like Germany, where Chancellor Angela Merkel has welcomed migrants and has become a hero to many Iraqis. The stories Iraqis hear from relatives in Europe are often euphoric, and full of possibility.
“When you go to Europe, they treat you well, they give you a house, they pay you money, they take care of your health,” said Ali Hattam Jassim, 37, whose brother recently arrived in Belgium. “We have so many friends there, and they tell us how great the life is.”
The “open doors” policy has therefore created precisely the effect of which critics warned: offering unconditional refuge to anyone from anywhere only serves to encourage the Third World to enter Europe to parasite off of—and ultimately destroy—Europe and the European people.
