EU Commission and Greece using a calculator made in Turkey regarding migrant returns.

EU Commission and Greece using a calculator made in Turkey regarding migrant returns.

The “selective memory” of the Daily Sabah (Erdogan’s propaganda machine) and the EU Commission regarding the EU Turkey deal. We are not sure who provides more “spin”.

** The EU Commission claims “only 15% of Syrian refugees have been resettled from Turkey to the EU countries under the resettlement agreement signed in March 2016.”

How can they possibly calculate this number? They cannot unless they engage in deception. This is a false statement.

1. Top misinformation: “Under the deal, the EU pledged to admit 72,000 Syrian refugees who resided in Turkey.” Not exactly true. This was not a pledge but the “maximum number” of Syrians to be relocated to Europe under the so-called “one-for-one” swap of “Syrians only”.

The Daily Sabah claims only 11,354 Syrians have been resettled to Europe as of November 2017. This is how they erroneously calculate the 15% success rate. Again, the 72,000 figure was not a pledge, but an upper limit dependent on “72,000 Syrians being sent back to Turkey”, which we all know is not the case.

Under the deal, this means that 11,354 Syrians should have been sent back to Turkey from Europe. Unfortunately, this has not happened. The leaders of Greece are simply not sending back the Syrians to Turkey to match the Syrians being sent to Europe. In fact, it’s not even close to “one-for-one”. Very few Syrians, maybe a thousand, have been sent back to Turkey. This is a sham.

2. Second misinformation: “The deal employs a one-for-one formula under which failed asylum seekers in Europe are returned to Turkey while Syrian refugees are resettled in EU states in a quota system.” Again, the language has been altered and distorted to fit Erdogan’s agenda.

The “one-for-one” swap ONLY pertains to Syrians, not “failed asylum seekers”. Under the second part of the deal, in which both Turkey and the EU seem to have forgotten, ALL “non-Syrian irregulars” were to be sent from Greece back to Turkey with no corresponding swap. One may have to read this paragraph twice.

However, it’s always the same story with Greece, which is not sending back “all the non-Syrians” to Turkey as required. Instead, the illegal migrants are “roaming” in places like Serbia waiting for their chance to travel north, or hoping for the EU to expand their relocation program. This has created a very dangerous situation for Europeans.

3. The big reach for glory: EU Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos claims, “The number of crossings in the Aegean Sea has seen a considerable decline since the migrant deal was reached.”

Macedonians, Hungarians, Austrians and others may strongly disagree with a portion of this statement. While it is a fact that the number of crossings have declined, these numbers were already decreasing due to the closing of the Balkan route, which was initially vehemently opposed by Angela Merkel and the EU. The Balkan closing clearly pre-dated the deal with Turkey.

We will not claim that the Turkey deal was not helpful, but the key was the closing of the migrant pipeline from Greece to Germany. The migrants targeted “rich” Germany for their final destination. They had no desire to be stuck in Greece or Serbia. Once this road to Germany was secured, the migrant demand for Greece dropped sharply. There was no longer any incentives to reach Greece. Ironically, the biggest beneficiary was Germany, which is why Merkel no longer talks about the Balkan closing as “not my Europe”.

*** Don’t get caught up in the rhetoric of Angela Merkel or “poor” Erdogan in Turkey. The deal is paying dividends for both Turkey and Germany…..thanks mainly to the efforts of Visegrad and the Central European Defence Cooperation coalition.

* Brussels/Open Society: EU Commission meeting between Frans Timmermans and George Soros in Brussels reveals the radical ideology behind so-called “EU values”

According to the Brussels Times, this meeting was designed to send a message to Hungary 🇭🇺, but we believe it is unprofessional, inappropriate and will further alienate mainstream Europe from the extreme multicult beliefs of the EU Commissioners.

But at least it provides a clear picture of why Timmermans and other EU Ministers, such as Vera Jourova, have decided to attack both Hungary and Poland. George Soros and the Open Society network are now the “centers of influence” in Brussels.

** Asked by a journalist about the purpose of the meeting, the chief spokesperson replied that Timmermans and Soros have known each other for many years.

“They’ll discuss broader issues of relevance to the EU, such as how to keep EU Member States together....Closer and always together,” he explained.

This resulted in a follow-up question from another journalist: “Are you sure that Soros wants the EU to stick together?” To which the spokesperson simply replied that he does not speak for Soros but for the Commission and Timmermans.

The Brussels Times contacted Frans Timmermans directly to receive his comment on a question which could have been asked by the Hungarian government itself.

Timmermans confirmed that he has been regularly in touch with George Soros and the Open Society Foundations over the last 20 years.

“I have seen firsthand in many different places what his commitment and his contributions have done to help countries rid themselves of their totalitarian, communist past and develop societies based on the same values that were enjoyed by those of us who were lucky enough to be on the right side of the Iron Curtain after WW2 or had the good fortune to liberate themselves from dictatorship earlier,” Timmermans replied.

“Given his and my experience with these issues, it seems to me absolutely logical that we would remain in touch regularly and compare notes about the situation in Europe and beyond.” The socialist from the Netherlands calls himself an expert on freedom. Sure thing, Frans. 🙄👌

“There is no doubt in my mind that his commitment to freedom, democracy and the development of open societies with equal rights for all citizens is genuine and honest,” he said.

Timmermans feels strongly about this commitment. ”It is a commitment I have shared throughout my professional life and a commitment I will stick to until I draw my final breath.”

*** Frans Timmermans has revealed his loyalties and cannot be expected to provide independent and impartial judgement regarding the European nation states.

Visegrad and others should demand his immediate resignation. Timmermans is a multicult activist and should be working for Open Society, instead of undermining Europe.

* Germany 🇪🇺🇩🇪 to accept 10,000 migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. The scheme designed at the Malta Summit is now implemented.

EU Commissioner for Refugees Dimitris Avramopoulos said Germany would be accepting more than 10,000 migrants from North Africa and the Middle East. He added that the EU Commission had received a commitment from Berlin this week, confirming that Germany would play an important role in the EU's “latest” resettlement program.

"The German government is once again there when it comes to international solidarity," Avramopoulos said in Thursday editions of newspapers in the Funke Media Group.

We see Avramopoulos has moved beyond EU solidarity. Now it’s “international solidarity”.

** In February of 2017, the V4 Report predicted this would be the result from the Malta Summit. It is now a reality. Some countries are now providing “safe-legal pathways” for migrants to enter Europe via direct transfers from Turkey and Africa. v4report.com/index.php/2017/02/06/merkel-euco-deception-malta-summit/

Working with the United Nations, the EU aims to provide a legal, direct and safe route to Europe for migrants. At least 50,000 migrants from “crisis areas” are to be brought into the EU by 2019. Other member states, like Slovenia 🇸🇮, have already agreed to resettle 40,000 migrants, meaning that the program's goal has been achieved, and may even be exceeded. The resettlement initiatives could be endless.

The EU will be supporting host countries by providing €500 million ($620 million) in funding for the program. In reality, it’s not the EU’s money.

Meanwhile, the EU Commission has urged Germany to end border controls as soon as possible. Avramopoulos told the Funke Media Group that he would not agree to such controls "forever." So Avramopoulos will decide this internal issue for Germany?

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer recently informed the EU Commission that controls on Germany's border to Austria would be extended for another six months, although systematic controls on flights from Greece would be discontinued.

Avramopoulos welcomed the decision taken by the German authorities to stop systematic border controls at German airports for passengers arriving from Greece.

One does not have to be a scientist to realize what this means.
