Greece follows U.S. example by building giant border wall to keep out illegal immigrants
dailymail.co.uk/ ^ | 4th January 2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

The Greek government has unveiled plans to construct a wall along its 128-mile land border with Turkey in order to tackle the influx of illegal immigrants. Interior minister Christian Papoutsis said the wall was a necessary measure after more than 100,000 people illegally entered the Mediterranean nation last year. But the plans - which have compared with the 650-mile barrier along sections of the border between the U.S. and Mexico - have been criticised by the European Commission as a 'short-term measure' that does not deal with the root of the problem.

I hope they don’t follow our example and ACTUALLY FINISH building their wall.

A spokesman said on Monday that for the EU Commission said that such proposals were 'short-term measures which will not allow us to tackle illegal immigration in a structural manner'.

'We made clear with Greece that the country needs sound and long-term structural reforms and measures to better manage its border, to better address the challenges linked to migration flows,' Michele Cercone said.

Same goofy philosophy as the USA liberals. Let me guess - the EU's long term solution is "Welcome the new neighbors."

Maybe the US Senate can help them develop "Comprehensive Immigration Reform"...

Gee, I never knew that there were that many Turks that wanted to become Greek Orthodox. I guess it’s the sugared almonds that they hand out at weddings.

Yes, goofy and non-sensical. Heard an NPR type talking about it with the usual objections. Won’t work, not the way to go, probable human rights violations etc. Oh, and of cours they were referred to as “undocumentd migrannts”.

If they follow the US example, they will spend billions on nearly useless cameras and motion-sensors. They will allow millions of illegals in, and then their leftist President will use the power of his office to attack any low-level law-enforcement official that tries to seriously deal with the problem.

So is THAT what the Greeks are doing?

A “virtual wall” that goes well with virtually useless politicians.

Greece is a small country, with a rather small population. Yet it is awash in illegal immigrants from the Muslim world, from Albania, from Africa, The Gypsies, Eastern Blockers, and even China!

Italy, having a much greater population, is even worse off. France? Toulon, Marseilles, in Provence ... like the Casbah ... Paris, suburbs where even the cops dare not go, Belgium, Overrun, Holland, Germany, and especially Scandinavia, which is now suffering an epidemic of Muslim rapists.

This ain't good. Our ancestors divided the known world into Christendom and Islam. They weren't stupid. Muslims are not assimilatable. They belong "over there."

And it has been such since the days when Hagar was removed from Abraham’s tent leaving Sarah with Isach to start the lineage to Jesus.

Once again, the European Commission proves itself to be Europe's Enemy #1. All these idiot - unelected - "commissars" need to be strung up.

Those illegally entering Greece come in through Turkey and are not are Turks. Turkey has essentially given muslims from everywhere the green light to enter Greece through its territory whether by land or sea. (example: A security official friend told me that Turks give the migrants knives and tell them to burst their boats in sight of a Greek island—then the Greeks have to pick them up in the water and take them to land - neat trick for getting in)

AS for Turks being Orthodox Christians — there are crypto Christians in Turkey but most were converted forcefully and the rest - 4 million - were killed outright.

Believe me - being next to Turkey is like living next to a den of rabid wolves.

Bulgars Serbs and Greeks of course have all fought them to the death...but only the Bear to the North (Russia) has managed to really keep them in check at various times.

The root of the problem is, Greece hasn't told the EC to go intercourse itself. Thanks VU4G10.
