Posted on 09/08/2015 1:46:47 PM PDT by Enlightened1
The Greek island of Lesbos has been turned into a war zone by rioting migrants, leaving the islands 85,000 residents in despair. Around 25,000 migrants are currently camped out on the island with hundreds more arriving daily, leading to frequent violent clashes and rioting despite their claim to be fleeing violence.
Located just 6 miles from the Turkish shore, the migrants come over in inflatable boats which they cut up on arrival to prevent being turned back, expecting to be able to quickly travel on by ferry to mainland Europe, German station RTL has reported.
Instead, they are being held on the Island while the police issue emigration documents, a delay which can take days. The wait is causing tension between groups as Afghans accuse Syrians of getting preferential treatment by the authorities, leading to vicious violent clashes.
As rocks, bottles and municipal bins fly, one tearful local woman told RTL We are in danger, every day, every minute. We need someone to protect us. They come into our houses. I want to go to work, but I cant. Our children want to go to school, but they cant. They have stolen our lives!
Another yells at the migrants flinging rocks as they pass his house: Go away from here! This is private land! Respect Greece!

Let them kill each other and let Allah sort it out.
Shoot a few. The rest will be more than happy to be repatriated.
Muslim refugees must be re-settled in muslim countries.
Europe is finding out what it means to be colonized. They aren’t going to like it.
What a practical choice.
Lesbians deeply concerned.....
I don’t this is what the poetess Sappho envisioned for her island to say the least.
The proper response to an invasion is to drive the invaders into the sea with overwhelming firepower.
If only the locals had guns.
The EU has turned Greece into a failed state as well
Where will their refugees flee to?
Wherever they go, they bring fighting, death and destruction.
Muslims, look at your current state. Is Islam worth it? You would rather risk drowning to reach Greece than live in a Muslim country like Turkey that is relatively prosperous. You rather risk drowning and reach a bankrupt Greece than live in a prosperous Turkey. And of course, the motherlode - reaching welfare states in Northern Europe.
Fighting on Lesbos never ends until one side is licked.
I think the Greeks will catch a break in that most of these heathens will not stay there since they all want to reach the land of welfare checks aka England, France or Germany (and assortment of Scandinavian states).
Sink the rafts before they make landfall. A few good men with powerboats could make quite a few waves there.
That whole thing reads like a really bad plot from a 1950’s gladiator movie.
