Turkey on Monday demanded an additional 3 billion euros from the European Union to help deal with the refugee crisis as EU leaders appealed to Ankara to take back thousands of migrants and prevent others from setting off for Europe.

Turkey — a temporary home to an estimated 2.75 million refugees, many from the conflict in Syria — is an indispensable EU partner in trying to dissuade people fleeing conflict or poverty from taking to makeshift boats and making the short but often-dangerous trip across the Aegean Sea.

“To avoid that refugees arrive in Greece we have to co-operate with Turkey,” French President Francois Hollande said as he arrived for the EU-Turkey summit in Brussels.

But Turkish leaders upped the ante on Monday, demanding the additional funds by 2018, on top of 3 billion euros the EU had already pledged to help Syrian refugees in the country, European Parliament President Martin Schulz said. Turkey also made requests to ease visa rules by June instead of the end of the year.

Turkey also wants to be able to send Syrian refugees to the 28-nation EU as they take people back who have made the crossing into Greece. The EU is desperate to halt the flow of migrants crossing the Aegean Sea. NATO ships are also set to help patrol the sea between Greece and Turkey, easing the load on Turkey’s military-run coast guard.

Turkey says this summit is as much about its thwarted EU membership ambitions as Europe’s inability to manage the refugee emergency. The membership talks have dragged on for a decade and Ankara is looking for improved negotiating conditions.

“Turkey is ready to work with the EU, and Turkey is ready to be a member of the EU as well,” Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told reporters, expressing hope that the talks “will be a success story and a turning point in our relations.”

A planned news conference with Davutoglu was cancelled after the Turks made new demands. They are expected to be discussed over a dinner, which was added to the summit program.

In Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the EU of failing to deliver on the refugee fund and criticized the Europeans for refusing to take in more refugees.

“We are not sending them. They are going (to Greece) by sea and many of them are dying. We have rescued close to 100,000 from the sea. Others are puncturing their boats and causing their deaths,” Erdogan said, in an address to women trade-unionists.

Greece Migrants

North of Greece, Macedonia has effectively sealed off the main route into the Balkans, allowing just a trickle of people through. The move — backed by Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Hungary — has ratcheted up pressure from the other side as Greek authorities don’t have enough shelter for those who are stranded.

Hundreds of thousands of people have used the route in recent months to try to reach preferred destinations like Germany or the countries of Scandinavia.

An estimated 13,000-14,000 people waited at Greece’s border with Macedonia on Monday hoping desperately to be allowed to cross.

“Whatever it takes. We will go. We have nothing to go back to. Our homes are destroyed,” said Lasgeen Hassan, who, with the rest of his Kurdish Syrian family, wants to reunite with relatives in Germany.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency, conceded that Turkey will need extra help if more migrants are sent back.

“We will need to bring relief to Turkey, and that means you have to be willing to take people in from Turkey” who are the most likely to qualify for asylum, he said.

‘Dangerous and deliberate ploy’

Human rights group Amnesty International hit out at the leaders for using Turkey as a buffer to stop migrants, calling the move “a dangerous and deliberate ploy to shirk their responsibilities to people fleeing war and persecution.”

“Europe has an absolute duty to protect refugees and must make the bold decision to fast-track significant, unconditional resettlement as a matter of urgency,” said the group’s deputy director for Europe and Central Asia, Gauri van Gulik.

Ankara did little to allay concern about its rights record before the summit, when police on Friday stormed the headquarters of the Zaman opposition newspaper to enforce a court decision to place it and its sister outlets under the management of trustees. The step sparked two days of protests which police dispersed using tear gas and water cannons.

“Cooperation with Turkey does not mean that we have to accept anything,” Hollande said. “The press must be free everywhere, including in Turkey.”

  1. FOOLS….

    We are being played for fools.

    We are being played for fools by those we elected to serve and protect us, by those we elected and appointed to protect and serve our nations, our communities, our culture, our values and the legacy, the gifts of our forefathers.

    We have been abandoned by those whom we trusted and now we reap the reward for our blind trust; we stagger from lamp post to lamp post with a dagger of betrayal and treason between our shoulder blades.

    The “we” I speak of is our culture, our people; Western Anglo Saxon Protestant Judeo Christians, collectively, the greatest success story in the history of Mankind.

    From our bureaucracy, to our academia, our judiciary, our law enforcement and intelligence officials, the Marxist Mass Media, all a treasonous threat each of us faces, each and every one of them eagerly serving the demands of hundreds of thousands of humanity’s lowest common denominator, virtual Middle Eastern and African human garbage that streams across our borders with no other intention save that of doing us grievous harm.

    I will be brief.

    There is a global banquet of chaos, annihilation, death, war, genocide and apocalyptic cataclysm being set by those who remain behind the scenes. The global power sharing arrangement is being shuffled.

    Our alternatives are few.

    Personally, I suggest gathering amongst your own on a local level. There is strength in numbers. Understand that you now face a conflict on two fronts.

    One, the waves of predatory, parasitic weaponized humanity that floods across your borders.

    Two, those Marxists, treasonous each and every one, who have infected all levels of media, governance, judiciary and law enforcement, to their end of destroying every facet of your civilized society. From your sense of nationalism and love of country, to your families and your sense of propriety, to your faith in God, all targeted, all to be destroyed, all to be wiped from the face of the earth.

    Howsoever you choose to fight back, if at all, is up to you.

    I suggest a fight, a fight that withers and wastes those who have betrayed our county, and those who arrive on our shores with shrieking, demanding voices, extended grasping hands, all fueled by a womb in overdrive and the colour of their skin.

    The choice is yours.

    Here below, while overtones of National Socialism exist, is a small rant that clearly defines our predicament across Europe and the United Kingdom, and, soon to arrive in North America.

    Excerpt from American History X

    …………………”Alright listen up! We need to open our eyes !

    There is over two million illegal immigrants bedding down in this state tonight. This state spent three billion dollars last year on services for those people who had no right to be here in the first place. Three billion dollars. 400 million dollars just to lock up a bunch of illegal immigrant criminals who only got in this country because the fucking INS decided it’s not worth the effort to screen for convicted felons.

    Who gives a shit,?, our government doesn’t gave a shit. Our border policy is a joke! So is anybody surprised that at the south of the border are laughing at us, laughing at our laws. Every night thousands of these parasites stream across the border like some fucking piñata exploded!!

    Don’t laugh! There’s nothing funny going on here this is about your life and mine. It’s about decent hard-working Americans falling through the cracks and getting the shaft because their government cares more about the constitutional rights of a bunch of people who aren’t even citizens in this country.

    On the Statue of Liberty it says: “Give me your tired, your hungry, your poor.” Well, it’s Americans who are tired and hungry and poor. And I say, until you take care of that, close the fucking book. ‘Cause we’re losing! We’re losing our right to pursue our destiny. We’re losing our freedom, so that a bunch of fucking foreigners can come in here and exploit our country. And this isn’t something that’s going on far away, this isn’t something that’s happening in places we can’t do anything about it, it’s happening right here, right in our neighborhood, right in that building behind you.

    Archie Miller ran that grocery store since we were kids here. Dave worked there, Mike worked there. He went under and now some fucking Korean owns it who fired these guys and he’s making a killing ’cause he’s hired forty fucking border-jumpers. I see this shit going on and I don’t see anyone doing anything about it, and it fucking pisses me off. So look around you. This isn’t our fucking neighborhood, it’s a battle field. We are on a battle field tonight. Make a decision. Are we gonna stand on the sidelines quietly standing there while our country gets raped? Are we gonna stand up and do something about it? You’re god damn right we are”……………….

    1. If only that traitor who endorse suicidal masochism as the highest moral virtue for others, Dawud Camoron would get bitten in the arse by those he panders to, too!

      😉

  2. OF COURSE the only one keeping them out is “Macedonia” – whom the retarded leftist enemedia presstitutes portray as big bad (white, Greek, racist) “meanies” because they hate facts so much they never bother to do even the most basic, rudimentary research, which would have revealed to them that the reason they are keeping the jihadis out, is because they are NOT Greeks, but Turkish Squiptars, spawn of the previous generations of invasive jihadis, so they know the rules: The Qur’an says they must emigrate to conquer infidel lands, and Macedonia has already long-since been conquered by islam and is already chock-full of muslims.

    So, as part of the Dar-al-Islam (the “Already-Pacified Zone”) is is not on the Dar-al-Harb (War-Zone”) menu, and the invaders should damned-well know it!
