Italian navy rescues hundreds of children on migrant boat

Clueless infidels and the enemedia will portray this as an act of desperation born out of despair and poverty. Our enemies are well aware that most people in Europe find it unimaginable to put their children in a boat and ship them off to a foreign land. Not so with devout Muslims: they breed for jihad.  It is their purpose in life to make the world Islamic. If they don’t sent us their stormtroopers, they’ll send us  their best breeders, and if that doesn’t get enough traction, they’ll send us their brood. And who in the western world will be so heartless to refuse the parents of these kiddies on ‘humanitarian grounds’  once they have their feet  firmly on the ground?

At least 34,800 people have crossed from North Africa to Europe so far this year, compared to 43,000 in the whole of 2013

An Italian navy patrol ship picked up a migrant boat coming from North Africa carrying 435 people including 264 children, most from Syria and Egypt, authorities said on Saturday.

The rescue, which occurred on Friday afternoon, is the latest in a seemingly endless succession as the chronic migrant crisis in the southern Mediterranean has picked up this year.

At least 34,800 people have crossed from North Africa to Europe so far this year, compared to 43,000 in the whole of 2013. That leaves the annual total set to surpass the 60,000 who made the trip in 2011 when the Arab Spring revolutions loosened border controls, according to the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR.

The near daily arrivals of migrant boats has become an issue in the European parliamentary elections due to be wrapped up on Sunday with growing demands in Italy for more help from the European Union to confront the emergency.
