EU-Imposed Immigration Is Destroying Italy's Economy

Immigrants arriving on the island of Lampedusa, off the coast of Sicily


This is the third part of the article by Italian journalist Alessandra Nucci. Here are the first two parts:

The Looting of Italy

How the EU and the Left Ruined Italy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


A Never-ending Flow of Illegal Immigrants Overburdens Italian Welfare

Very little is ever said about the immigration load, which together with bureaucracy is largely responsible for the burgeoning debt. It is routinely downplayed, while Italy gets lectured to for supposedly not living up to impossible standards that are provably not expected of any other country. The Italian Coastguard and Carabinieri have saved countless lives and generous Italian welfare, including old-age pensions, is doled out not only to illegal immigrants but, incredibly, to their relatives back home. Nonetheless Amnesty International feels free to scold us on the subject, and periodically issues press releases condemning the heartlessness of Italy alone, never anyone else, even though Spain has been known to shoot against boats approaching its shores and Malta routinely turns away boats heading in its direction, instructing them to come to Italy and France, and literally closed its borders after having prompted the renewed stowaway immigration by instigating the attack on Libya.

In order to de-industrialize an economy as big as Italy’s, money has to be pried away from millions of hard-working Italians. Which explains the sudden deluge of illegal immigrants which has been literally tossed onto our shores by the shiploads, starting in 1993.

That first time, Italy flew them right back from where they came from, like any other sovereign country would. But in 1997 they were back, with Romano Prodi, the leader of leftist Catholics, as Prime Minister. He hedged and hawed and eventually ...refused to send them back.

The flooding continued, to the self-righteous glee of Italy’s powerful leftists, until it was stopped by a costly “friendship” treaty with Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi (who was not friends with Italy alone. His friendly relationships with the leaders of France and Britain, as well as with Nelson Mandela, are well documented on the Internet, and it is rumoured that he financed the election campaign of Sarkozy, his prime assailer of 2011, in which case Sarkozy would have had good reasons for preferring him dead rather than imprisoned and eventually allowed to talk; same goes for his sons).

Which leads us to when the West suddenly discovered the pressing need to get rid of Gaddafi, and Sarkozy led the way in Nato’s …humanitarian bombing.

It has been proven that the attack on Libya was based on a flagrant lie. There were no mass graves and Gaddafi was demonstrably not killing his own people. (Just like with Syria’s Assad today).

But the testimony of the Archbishop of Tripoli and other witnesses went unheeded, the forgery of the mass grave pictures was brushed aside, and the “humanitarian” bombing began. (Again, just like with Assad.)

The no-fly zone, which immediately turned into a viciously destructive bombing (like Nato’s intervention in Kosovo, which went on even after Serbia had surrendered), was not just about Gaddafi. It was all about Italy; it was a frontal attack on

1) Italy’s major companies, which all had legitimate business with Libya and costly infrastructure built up through years of work on the Libyan coast,

2) the treaty that had put a stop to the wholesale invasion of Italy by impoverished immigrants, who happened to come prevalently from Muslim countries.


Consequences of the Libyan War for Italy

Both of these were enormous blows to Italy, but the second one was made particularly odious by the double standards that were flagrantly applied: with Italy being required to take in any and all who come by boat to our shores, or are dumped almost anywhere in the Mediterranean between here and Libya, while France - whose raids had started it all - literally closed its borders. When refugees from Tunisia (a former French colony) showed up expecting to get into France, they were shoved back into Italy! This incredible behaviour revealed to public scrutiny for the first time the existence of a Treaty signed in Dublin and dating back to the beginning of the 1990s, by which all illegal immigrants to the EU are to be registered and dealt with by the country where they first set foot. Italy being a stone’s throw away from Africa means that the boat people obviously come here as their first “choice”, and the Treaty makes sure they go no further than here.

This incredible burden notwithstanding, our rulers in Brussels, perhaps savouring the day in the not-too-distant future when the Vatican (considered the Book of Revelation’s “whore of Babylon” ) will inevitably be surrounded by a predominantly Muslim population - armed and financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar and incited by Quran precepts to conquer the world for Allah and his prophet - ignored our legitimate pleas for help. Not only that: there were dark intimations here and there in the press about Italy needing to face up to its responsibilities. Whoever googled "Italy+colonialism" would come up with a lengthy Wikipedia list of Italian colonies, which actually correspond to the ancient Roman empire, plus charts of what amounts to dictator Mussolini’s 1930s colonial …wish list!

Now, the illegal immigration forced on Italy is a large part of what has caused our huge national debt. Yet, whenever Italy is concerned, the EU applies a sort of right of anyone in the world to come and live here, with his family, and be supported by us as well. In early 2012 the European Court of Human Rights even fined Italy for repatriating 24 illegal immigrants from Eritrea and Somalia, who had tried to enter the country three years earlier, 2009, on board a boat that was setting sail from Libya. These people were not harmed in any way, they were merely prevented from setting sail.

This was in accordance with the Treaty between Italy and the then-existent Libya, which allowed the Italian Coastguard to halt the massive illegal immigration that had been bringing immigrants to our shores in uncounted multitudes. Many drowned in the attempt.

Today, particularly after Pope Francis - in the aftermath of the October 2013 shipwreck of a shipload of 300+ Africans - amazingly went to Lampedusa to lament a generically wretched treatment of migrants, the situation is that Italy’s Navy is perennially fishing unlimited numbers out of the sea, ferrying them and towing their boats into Italian ports by the thousands. Daily. From the beginning of 2014 to Easter, over 20,000 were saved and brought into Italy, after Easter the rate of intake has been on average over a thousand a day, with no end in sight. Secretary of State Angelino Alfano has made it known that an estimated 800,000 people are assembled in Northern Africa, waiting their turn to be ferried into Italy. He has said that Italy cannot shoulder this burden by itself. But the Italian government dares take no action to stop them, knowing full well that the newscasts and daily press would immediately be filled with statements of moral outrage.

In sum: Italy has one of the highest population densities in the world, an economy saddled with the notorious public debt, yet we are high-handedly expected to take in unlimited masses of people who come here with their families, empty handed, expecting to be supported for the rest of their lives. In 2013 Australia, a continent with the lowest population density of the world, let it be known that boat people demanding asylum by landing on Christmas island – their Lampedusa – were denied entry and immediately deported to detention centers in Papua New Guinea or the island of Naum instead. Where was the international outcry?

Euro, Technocrats and Media Role in the Undoing of Italy

  1. This is not immigration: it is invasion.
    The EU has said that Europe “needs” 50 million Africans. It browbeats members, already so emasculated and powerless as soon to be no longer States, with its untouchable “Core Values” - asylum, free movement, and extended welfare to all comers.
    These are part of “undermining the homogeneity” of the populations (Peter Sutherland, UN spokesman), in other words, white genocide and suppression of indigenous peoples, who are to become a destitute underclass governed by the EU elite.
    Previous invasions were met with defence. This is now needed. Our nations, our cultures, our economies, are all under dire threat.

  2. I cannot find any reference to "Treaty signed in Dublin and dating back to the beginning of the 1990s, by which all illegal immigrants to the EU are to be registered and dealt with by the country where they first set foot." Enza?

  4. Gaddafi was no saint but Gaddafi was a million times more ethical than our ruling elites who are devoid of all ethics. Betrayal is one of the most terrible things a person or nation can commit. What the elites did to Gaddafi and Libya is a warning to other nations. Elites will pretend to be your friend; take advantage of you to the max and then stab you in the back. Completely satanic.

    Our countries are BANKRUPT as a result of financially providing for many millions of muslims including the harems of muslim males. Muslims never attempt to go to another muslim country. Never. Muslims come to live as parasites off our people and to wage jihad against us in obedience to the Quran War book.

    Muslims are given top priority and help in all Western nations.

    In Britain 9,000 homeless vets and other desperate homeless indigenous Brits live on the streets, DENIED help. They are denied help because they don’t belong to the Cult of Islam. The benefits and homes that belong to indigenous Brits have been given away to muslims. Our people are treated as the scum of the earth.

    There are pics of boat load after boat load of muslim invaders and also muslim invaders infiltrating over land. There are no women. No children. They are all young, strong, healthy muslim males of war fighting age. They are huge muslim invading armies – the soldiers of allah.

    A nation whose leaders who don't guard their borders and allow open borders are nations with leaders who hate their own people. Open borders are national suicide, allowing in huge numbers of enemies who hate our people and wish us great harm. In the past, leaders built high walls around their cities to protect their people and to stop invading armies. Alas, our evil leaders don't want to protect us. Their hearts are filled with great darkness.

    The impoverishment and despair of our people:

  5. There is information far more shocking and very frightening on this subject. This article is not one of them, but very important to read:
    A Brief History of the Jesuits
    http://www.thebibleistheotherside.org/newsitem25.htm

    The THIEF has come to STEAL, to KILL and to DESTROY.

    http://voiceofrussia.com/news/2014_06_07/Vatican-to-hold-Islamic-prayers-for-the-first-time-in-history-9001/

    The Pope and the Christian and Jewish leaders who attended the SATANIC service at the Vatican are the RAVENOUS WOLVES God warned about throughout the entire Bible – Old and New Testament! Every one of them are TRAITORS to God and are consumed with a rabid HATE for God!

    Bible, Matthew 7:15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

    The great SIN and terrible EVIL at the Vatican screamed out to God in heaven. God was DESPISED by the Pope and the Christian and Jewish leaders who attended.
    The Christian leaders SPAT on our Lovely Savior Jesus and spat on the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. And by their wicked silence, they APPROVE of Islam’s EVIL Global War on Christians! THEIR BLOOD CRIES OUT!

    The BLOOD CULT of ISLAM; the muslim DEATH god who is NEVER satisfied with the cruel deaths of hundreds of millions of innocents and demands and CRAVES more and more murders was HONORED and GLORIFIED in the satanic ceremony in the Vatican. Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran were offered up to the GOD of MURDER.

    Bible, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
    For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.

  6. INCORRECT INTERPRETATION OF BABYLON! Our rulers in Brussels, perhaps savouring the day in the not-too-distant future when the Vatican (considered the Book of Revelation’s “whore of Babylon” )......
    The interpretation that the Vatican is the Book of Revelation "whore of Babylon is INCORRECT!

    On Long Island, about 50 miles east of New York City is a city called Babylon. I believe that Babylon is NEW YORK CITY in Revelation 18 and Jeremiah 50 and 51. I believe that Babylon is New York City and Chaldea is the United States in Jeremiah 50 and 51. Jeremiah 50-51 are the most terrifying judgments from God. So horrifying that God actually pleads for people to get out – escape.

    A “horde of great nations”, INVADING – Jeremiah 50:9. (After waging war in a number of nations the U.S. has made MANY enemies.). Why is God going to bring these terrifying judgments? Because of all the betrayals by US leaders against Israel:

    Bible, Jeremiah 51:24 But I will repay Babylon and all the inhabitants of Chaldea for all their evil that they have done in Zion.

    God said in the Bible of Jews and Israel: Blessed are those who bless you and cursed are those who curse you.

    In the war against Jews, US, Europe and other nations massively finance the PA/PLO Muslim war machine. The US provides weapons, including thousands of US assault rifles, ammunition and very extensive, advanced military training to US terrorist favorites, Palestinian Authority security services who have murdered more Jews than Hamas. They are America’s proxy terrorist army against loyal ally, Israel.

  7. Second part of my comment, VATICAN is NOT the "Whore" of Babylon of Revelation:

    U.S. trained forces in ‘greatest’ terrorist attacks
    Jihadist boasts 1 week after transfer of American assault rifles
    July 09, 2009 By Aaron Klein

    The statement comes one week after Israel approved the transfer of 1,000 U.S. and European assault rifles to those same security forces. PA militias regularly receive American arms, funding and advanced training.

    Terrorists double as police officers
    Since the late 1990s, the U.S. has run training bases for PA militias. The U.S. also has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in financial aid and weapons to build up the PA militias.

    Many members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist organization serve openly in the various PA militias, including in top positions. The Brigades, the declared military wing of Abbas’ Fatah organization, is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks aimed at Jewish civilian population centers. Most Brigades members received U.S. or European training as part of the PA security forces.

    Terrorist: ‘U.S. training helped us kill Jews’
    “I do not think that the operations of the Palestinian resistance would have been so successful and would have killed more than 1,000 Israelis since 2000 and defeated the Israelis in Gaza without these [American] trainings,” said Yousuf.

    “All the methods and techniques that we studied in these trainings, we applied them against the Israelis,” he said.

    “We sniped at Israeli settlers and soldiers. We broke into settlements and Israeli army bases and posts. We collected information on the movements of soldiers and settlers. We collected information about the best timing to infiltrate our bombers inside Israel. We used weapons and we produced explosives, and of course the trainings we received from the Americans and the Europeans were a great help to the resistance.”

    “I myself received American trainings in Jericho. Together with my Preventative comrades, I received trainings in intelligence methods and military trainings,” he said. “In the intelligence part, we learned collection of information regarding suspected persons, how to follow suspected guys, how to infiltrate organizations and penetrate cells of groups that we were working on and how to prevent attacks and to steal in places.

    “On the military level, we received trainings on the use of weapons, all kind of weapons and explosives,” Yousuf said. “We received sniping trainings, work of special units especially as part of what they call the fight against terror. We learned how to put siege, how to break into places where our enemies closed themselves in, how to oppress protest movements, demonstrations and other activities of opposition.

    “We also learned to discover agents that Israel tried to plant in our cells,” he said.
    “We applied against Israel all that we learned from the Americans.”

  8. two points:

    1) from an American's point of view (and as someone who is generally supportive of Obama), the decision to support the overthrow of Gaddafi was a huge mistake. Firstly, Gaddafi had made a deal with the West, and he lived up to it. He ended his WMD program (which was kind of a joke, but he did as we asked). He handed over the alleged Lockerbie bomber for trial. He quit being involved in international terrorism. But the first chance the West got, it helped overthrow him. For what? A democracy? HAHAHAHAHAHA. The same idiotic, naive thinking that got the US into that mess in Iraq, which only served to strengthen Iran by taking out their chief Persian Gulf rival. Furthermore, Obama seems to want very badly to do a deal with Iran on their nuclear research program. If you're one of the mullahs in Iran, surely you would have taken notice of how the US cut a deal with Gaddafi and then stabbed him in the back at the first opportunity. Iranians certainly have not forgotten what happened the last time they tried democracy there in the 1950s. And of course, the chaos in Libya has led directly to the immigrant crisis now faced by Italy, with waves and waves of immigrants washing ashore who cannot contribute in any meaningful way to the Italian economy, many of them do not wish to assimilate. It's an invasion.

    2) do you have any useful links with respect to the benefits that these immigrants get? I read a lot of 2nd hand information about them getting housing and welfare and so on, but I cannot find anything trustworthy to put hard numbers to this. I am not interested in agitprop but rather facts about how the immigrants are benefitting from the taxpayers. Thank you, grazie mille.

  9. one more thing: Pope Francis is generally a decent guy, much better than Ratzinger, but if he is so terribly concerned about the plight of the immigrants then perhaps he should write a check to the Italian Ministry of the Interior or the Coast Guard. He is right there in Rome, not very far from where La Casta congregates regularly to divide up the spoils from Italian taxpayers, and I hear the Catholic church has some money. If wiring the funds doesn't work (as things frequently don't in Italy), I am sure someone can be appointed to take the city bus over to the Agenzia delle Entrate in order to deliver the check.
