Malta: “all people arriving in EU territory are entitled to file an asylum request”

by sheikyer mami on July 12, 2013

That’s according to EUroMed, a contractual construct  few Europeans even know about.

EUroMed enables all Muslims who manage to get their feet on European soil to “demand their rights” and stay indefinitely.  Euro-dhimmies never had a say in it; but   the EU’s Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem, a clownish commie apparatchik like her boss, Catherine Ashton,  is determined to enforce it.

Malta cancels migrant deportation to Libya  (BBC)

Migrants picked up in the Mediterranean and taken to Malta
Sixty-eight migrants were brought into Malta on Wednesday

Malta has cancelled flights it had booked to return migrants to Libya, after an emergency intervention by the European Court of Human Rights.

The government had planned to send back people who had arrived by boat, but said it would abide by the ECHR order.

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said more than 400 migrants had arrived in the past week.

Malta last week called for assistance from the European Union to help cope with the influx.

Some 291 people were rescued from a single drifting boat last week. It is thought they had departed from Libya but many of them came originally from Eritrea.

Another 68 people were brought in by Maltese patrol boats on Wednesday.

Mr Muscat said the Maltese authorities were also monitoring further boats in the Mediterranean.

The summer months often see a stream of boats carrying migrants from Africa. Many arrive in Malta or the Italian island of Lampedusa, hoping to gain access to other parts of the European Union.

‘Not pushovers’

On Monday Pope Francis visited Lampedusa, where he met migrants and said Mass for them, and condemned the “global indifference” to their plight.

The European Court issued its order on Tuesday after an emergency request by non-governmental organisations concerned by reports that the Maltese government was preparing to deport the migrants.

The NGOs said this was the same policy of “push back” that was declared illegal by the court last year after it was used by Italy in 2009.

Mr Muscat confirmed the government had been discussing the return of migrants with Libya, but said this was not “push back”.

“This is not push back, it is a message that we are not pushovers,” he told the Times of Malta website.

But on Tuesday the EU’s Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstroem expressed concern about the plan to return migrants, saying: “All people arriving in EU territory are entitled to file an asylum request and to have a proper assessment of their situation.”

Too small? Click here This is a satirical website. None of what you read here has anything to do with Islam, because Islam is a Religion of Peace. Everybody knows that good Muslims never do the things they do, (because Allah does it for them, Quran 8:12) and we know that only our misperceptions, ignorance and stereotyping of Islam makes Muslims chop off heads, kill and rape women and children, bomb subways, buses, nightclubs and fly jets into buildings. If it wasn't for the media and da Jooozzz, we wouldn't even know its happening. We welcome open, honest, thoughtful, and vigorous discussion in the comments threads, so do yourself a favour and don't accuse us of being 'haters' because we are loving, tolerant people. Don't curse us, don't threaten us with death or hellfire, and don't accuse us of being "just like the terrorists" because we don't do to Muslims what they do to us or to themselves. Yes, we know that only idiots oppose Islam and sensible people submit, but  you should know that we are ignorant bigots, hypocrites and Islamophobes, and we prefer to remain that way... But since you are forcing yourselves (and your abhorrent belief-system on us) we will defend ourselves, because we must. Avoid tu quoque and ad hominem attacks. Don't bother with circular reasoning either, we been there, done it.  If you annoy us, you will be banned and your posts summarily deleted. Try to add to the discussion, don't try to sell snake oil, don't try to cover us with Islamic shrouds of kitman and taqiyya, don't bother with da'awa, (we've heard it before) don't spam us with long pieces of cut & paste, write in English, try to tell the truth, (we know that's hard for you because you are all pathological liars) but the truth will set you free, try it! One more thing: don't think you can post here under multiple monikers. You will quickly be disappeared! The same goes for trufers and conspiracy kooks: you get one chance, one time. Blow it out of your ass if you must; put your stupidity on display. But you won't be back, trust me on that. Take a deep breath before you post, try to make some sense, do not just vent, do not make a fool of yourself and if you prove us wrong you can earn 10 Islamic dollars for your piggy bank. Deal?
