The number of newly diagnosed HIV cases in Europe has hit an all-time high of 142,000, according to The World Health Organization. “Despite all the efforts to fight the disease,” WHO officials note that the rise of the epidemic is primarily attributed to Eastern Europe, where new diagnoses have more than doubled. But it is comments from European Centre for Disease Prevention Control acting director Andrea Ammon that raised a number of witch-huntery eye-brows when she explained migrants and refugees were at a high risk of infection after they arrived in Europe, because social exclusion made them more likely to engage in risky behavior.
“Despite all the efforts to fight HIV, this year the European Region has reached over 142,000 new HIV infections, the highest number ever,” says Dr Zsuzsanna Jakab, WHO Regional Director for Europe. As The Indepedent reports,
Greece: Macedonian police clash with migrants as journey to EU is blighted
A Czech truck driver passing through Calais has narrowly avoided being killed by migrants when they hurled a long wooden stake through the window of his cab before mobbing his vehicle. The driver was able to speed away, but police at the port said they were unable to offer assistance as he was not hurt during the attack.
But the attack, which took place on Wednesday night, has taken its toll on the driver’s career, as the frightening experience has left him unwilling to make the cross-channel journey again.
His boss has laid the blame for the attack at the feet of the European Union (EU), as he believes it’s not within the power of any one country to stem the tide of the migrant flow while tied into the wider union. However, he had some choice words for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has refused to back down on Germany’s open door policy to migrants holding Syrian passports.
Describing the attack, Radek Novak, managing director of freight company Vlastimil Hajek told Breitbart London exclusively: “It attack happened on Wednesday night. Our driver was heading into the port when a group of immigrants – I’d like to use a stronger word but I won’t – shouted at him to stop. They asked him for food, for clothing, and for money.
“When he refused, that was when they threw the wooden stake through his window.
“Then five or six people on each side climbed up onto the cab and were trying to break in. They tried to destroy the cab.
A STAGGERING 636,000 immigrants have arrived in the UK in the last 12 months as experts predict the new bigger Britain will include 20 MILLION more cars and entire NEW TOWNS built to house the boom.
The UK’s beloved countryside is facing devastation with almost unimaginable amounts of infrastructure needed to cope with a dramatic rise in the number of people calling Britain their home, researchers warn.
The Office of National Statistics said the UK will face an influx of at least 10 MILLION people by 2039, with around two-thirds of that figure coming from migration.
American gun owners can spot a gun-grabber a mile away, and they have known for several years now that their president is one of them. Time and again, Barack Obama has attempted to goad the country and Congress into backing stricter gun control laws that would do little to reduce mass shootings that are statistically rare to begin with,[PDF] according to a government study.
But statistics and facts and the truth about guns don’t matter to an ideologue like Obama; as Guns.news, a Natural News indy partner site, reported recently, Obama is likely to spend his final year in office pressing for more gun control laws that will weaken the Second Amendment and actually make Americans more vulnerable to criminals.
Chancellor Angela Merkel has rejected the CSU party, a ceiling for the reception of refugees again.
The CDU leader spoke out in favor of Munich, to protect the national borders to find European solutions to combat causes of flight.
This we save lives and we are the number of refugees reduce .With this approach we can make it as distinct from a unilaterally set upper limit, a national ceiling, to act in the interests of all , said Merkel.
Hunger strikes for the oppressed seem to be all the rage, both at home and abroad…
“The refugee crisis has many faces. Alongside the urgent need of many, there are also some who believe they can exploit this Culture of Welcoming to make shameless demands,” said Christian Ragger who represents the Carinthia branch of the Freedom Party of Austria in the regional parliament.
He is making reference to events currently underway in St. Kanzian. On Tuesday 20 asylum seekers went on hunger strike because they were given residency permits, as the law provides for, and not passports, and because they are not receiving 2000 euros of pocket money each month.
The most bizarre thing is that these “striking” asylum seekers also want to hold a press conference. They apparently assume that related reports in the media will ensure their demands are met. Via: APA
Greek authorities seize undocumented cache of weapons and supplies
SOUTHERN ISLE OF CRETE, GREECE (INTELLIHUB) — A large vessel with a crew of 7, containing various supplies, weapons, and firearms, possibly in an effort to aid Muslim refugees, was intercepted by Greek authorities. However according to Reuters the ship was bound for Libya and may have no connection to refugee aid.
The vessel “Haddad 1″ was intercepted by the Coast Guard on Aug. 29 after making its way from Turkey.
The ship was reported to have been loaded with numerous undocumented arms and supplies.
As of yet it’s unknown if the weapons were supplied by the CIA backed group ISIS.
A hospital in Sigmaringen, Germany has been forced to hire security guards after numerous incidents in which migrants physically attacked nurses while they were receiving free healthcare.
Schwäbische.de reports that the SRH Hospital in Sigmaringen took the precaution after 40 attacks on nurses in September alone, with nursing manager Silvia Stärk revealing that staff were “totally distressed” by the onslaught of verbal and physical abuse.
Stärk said that refugees were biting and spitting at nurses, with drunk migrants behaving particularly aggressively towards female nurses during night time hours.
“Whenever a nurse working in the emergency room alone, she is accompanied by a security guard,” according to the report, which states that nurses are accompanied by the guards between the hours of midnight and 6am from Sundays to Thursdays and from 10pm-6am on Fridays and Saturdays.
First it was Texas. Then five other states – Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, and Michigan – promptly followed in the footsteps of the Lone Star State in refusing to admit any Syrian refugees, despite the Obama administration promises to “carefully vet” any Syrian asylum seekers who may be headed to the US in 2016, some 10,000 according to early estimates.
It has since became an avalanche, and at last check, at least 27 states – represented by more than half the nation’s governors – say they oppose letting Syrian refugees into their states.
*Note: When this post was originally published the number was 6 states. It is now 21 states. This map shows the latest additions including Massachusetts and Maine.
Over the weekend, I published a post titled A Message to Europe – Prepare for Nationalism, which discussed, amongst many other things, the impact increased anti-refugee sentiment would have on European politics in the coming years. Although I didn’t expect the anti-refugee sentiment to emerge so rapidly in these United States, based on the headlines I’m seeing today, it undoubtably has.
