Most of the time in these pages when I have the melancholy duty of rebuking my fellow Christians for suicidal, irresponsible idiocy, conducted in the name of self-serving sentimentality or idiotic post-Christian ideology, I have at least the comfort that I am talking about liberal Protestants. This time I face the necessity of taking a large, live fish and slapping it in the face of the Vatican. Ah well, at least I read the story on a Friday in Lent, so it doesn’t violate the abstinence regulations. Those of you who have particularly strong stomachs, please read theÂ following:
Europe Is Disappointing Holy See on Immigration

VATICAN CITY, APRIL 15, 2011 (Zenit.org).-
The closing of Europe’s borders, given the wave of immigrants and refugees resulting from the conflicts and social crisis in several countries of North Africa, has disappointed the Holy See.

Andrew Bolt: Â Â Britain dissolved
Best that we don’t drift to the point where such speeches become necessary or deserve praise as “brave”:
“significant numbers of new people arriving Â who cannot speak the language practicing strange customs can cause discomfort and disjointedness in some neighbourhoods.”
Italy has alreadyÂ threatened to impose a naval blockade (GoV:)
(AGI) Roma â€” Roberto Calderoli said “a naval blockade” is needed following Europe’s “selfish and anti-EU” stance. “In the light of the selfish and anti-EU stance taken today by Europe towards a member state, we must urgently set up a naval blockade to defend our waters and boundaries, as provided for in the agreement signed by Interior Minister Roberto Maroni and the Tunisian government” the Minister for Legislative Simplification said.
The French are definitely taking the matter seriously â€” they’veÂ established a tight cordon along their border with Italy:

Brussels â€“ Boats from the European Union’s border patrol mission Frontex should send migrants found at sea straight back toÂ Tunisia, rather than take them to Italy for identification, FrenchÂ Prime Minister Francois Fillon suggested on Thursday.
Italy has faced an influx of nearly 23,000 Tunisians since mid- January, when an autocraticÂ regime in that country was toppled by popular protests. Most of them landed in Lampedusa, a tinyÂ island straining under the pressure. (From M & C )

SECRET PLOT TO LET 50MILLION AFRICAN WORKERS INTO EU
MORE than 50 million African workers are to be invited to Europe in a far-reaching secretive migration deal, the Daily Express can reveal today.
A controversial taxpayer-funded “job centre” opened in Mali this week is just the first step towards promoting “free movement of people in Africa and the EU”.
Brussels economists claim Britain and other EU states will “need” 56 million immigrant workers between them by 2050 to make up for the “demographic decline” due to falling birth rates and rising death rates across Europe.
The report, by the EU statistical agency Eurostat, warns that vast numbers of migrants could be needed to meet the shortfall in two years if Europe is to have a hope of funding the pension and health needs of its growing elderly population.
Unfortunately for the beaurocrats in Brussels, he Koran doesn’t mention anything about paying the pension to unbelievers. Â Islam demands the jiziya, subjugation and annihilation of the unbeliever.
It states: “Countries with low fertility rates could require a significant number of immigrants over the coming decades if they want to maintain the existing number of people of working age.
“Having sufficient people of working age is vital for the economy and for tax revenue.”
The report, by French MEP Francoise Castex, calls for immigrants to be given legal rights and access to social welfare provision such as benefits.?
Ms Castex said: “It is urgent that member states have a calm approach to immigration. To say ‘yes’, we need immigration … it is not a new development, we must accept it.”
We must resist it at all cost, otherwise we are toast….
The proposals include the creation of a “blue card” system, based on the American green card, that provides full working and welfare rights.Â READ MORE
DailyExpress…ANGER AS EUROCRATS HIT OUT AT UK EXPULSIONS
EURO meddlers provoked fury last night by blasting Britain’s tougher policy on booting out unwanted migrants.
The Council of Europe â€“ which has previously insisted that convicted murderers, rapists and paedophiles must be given the vote â€“ attacked our “over-restrictive migration laws”.
In a statement, the Eurocrats said it was “not acceptable” for governments to remove unwanted migrants by sending them to countries that “do not respect international refugee law and human rights standards.”
