    Slovakia will not have a representative at the December 10 UN meeting in Marrakesh where the Migration Compact will be signed. Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini stated this as a final decision, given that the cabinet approved the parliamentary resolution about the Marrakesh Pact on December 5. At the same time, the prime minister indicated he will send a letter with Slovakia's comments on the document. The Migration Compact has been at the centre of the conflict between the ruling coalition Smer and Slovak National Party (SNS) and the Smer-nominated Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajăák. The minister defended the compact and insisted...
  • Romania joins Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Czech Republic in rejection of Muslim migrants

    EU President Juncker wants to allow Romania into the border-free Schengen zone, no doubt as an additional Muslim migration route, now that other Eastern European countries have closed their borders to it. Judging by Romania’s disdain for Muslims, it looks to be a non-starter. Romanians insist “our children must also grow up in safe and civilized conditions. We don’t want to end up like Western Europe where they are afraid to let children walk to school alone, or for their wives to be alone in the streets.” Romania is using technology and extra border control agents to prevent Muslims from...

    A former Eastern bloc country - that recognizes a totalitarian system - has passed a law which will effectively ban Islam from gaining official status as a religion. Those that have lived under the draconian fist of tyrannical regimes know that fist even if it's cloaked (or burqa-ed) in religion. And they are correct to do so and protect their country form the mayhem occurring in the rest of the EU.I have written ad nauseam, and many better than myself (Pamela Geller, Andrew Bostom, Robert Spencer, Raymond Ibrahim, to name a few) of the true barbaric nature of this ideology.As...

    The predominantly Christian country of Slovakia passed a law on Nov. 30 that effectively bans Islam as an officially recognized religion, which also blocks Islam from receiving any state subsidies for its schools, reported Reuters. The prime minister, Robert Fico, said in May that "Islam has no place" in Slovakia. Prior to the law being passed, Slovak National Party Chairman Andrej Danko said, "Islamization starts with a kebab and it's already under way in Bratislava -- let's realize what we can face in 5 to 10 years." "We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in...

    full Title : Slovakian Government Declares ‘Islam Has No Place In Slovakia’, Takes A Stand Against Islam And Changes The Laws To Block Islam From Being Officially Recognized As A Religion Slovakia passed legislation on Wednesday to effectively block Islam from gaining official status as a religion in the near future in the latest sign of growing anti-Muslim sentiment across the European Union. The former communist state has fiercely resisted EU efforts to cope with a big influx of mainly Muslim migrants into Europe since 2015, in part by opposing quotas to share out asylum seekers among EU members.

    Leftist Prime Minister Robert Fico won Slovakia's general elections on Saturday on the back of a strident anti-refugee platform. Fico vowed to "never bring even a single Muslim to Slovakia" and filed a lawsuit against an EU-wide plan to redistribute refugees across the bloc. Fico's strongly anti-refugee policies echo those of other hardliners in the EU's poorer ex-communist east, including Czech President Milos Zeman, Hungarian Premier Viktor Orban and Poland's Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

Police in the Czech capital Prague said some 800 people protested against the arrival of refugees and migrants, holding up banners saying: “Send them back!” and “Protect the borders”.

    * Germany will accept nearly 750,000 migrants this year. Slovakia agreed last week to accept Syrian Christian refugees but only if they are devout churchgoers. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported: As hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing conflict in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and poverty in Africa risk their lives to reach the safety of Europe, some eastern European states are embarking on a contentious strategy of selecting only Christian refugees for resettlement. Poland agreed to accept 50 Christian families from Syria under an initiative led by a private organisation and agreed by the prime minister. Slovakia has...

    By BI: Syrian Christians are under threat of extinction and deserving of asylum in majority Christian countries of the West. But this has outraged the European Union Commission which is livid that several Central & Eastern European countries don’t want Syrian refugees who are Muslims. The governments of Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria are firmly against the mandatory relocation of 40,000 mainly Muslim Syrians from Italy and Greece, one of the reasons the plan failed last month.DPA The governments in Warsaw, Vilnius, Riga and Prague are displaying a rare show of unity in rejecting quotas for refugees as...

    The government of Slovakia has said it will take in struggling migrants from Syria and other countries under a European Union scheme to share the burden of 40,000 new arrivals to the continent, but stipulated it will only be taking Christians, and not Muslims. "We want to help Europe with the migration issue. We could take 800 Muslims but we don't have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?" interior ministry spokesman Ivan Metik said, arguing that the policy is not discriminatory.

    Slovakia says it will only accept Christians when it takes in Syrian refugees under a EU relocation scheme. The country is due to receive 200 people from camps in Turkey, Italy and Greece under the EU plan to resettle 40,000 new arrivals. Interior ministry spokesman Ivan Metik said Muslims would not be accepted because they would not feel at home. The UN's refugee agency (UNHCR) called on countries to take an "inclusive approach" to relocation. But Mr Metik denied the move was discriminatory and said it was intended to ensure community cohesion. The number of migrants at the EU's borders...

    "Since Slovakia is a Christian country, we cannot tolerate an influx of 300,000-400,000 Muslim immigrants who would like to start building mosques all over our land and trying to change the nature, culture and values ​​of the state," said Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico. Slovakia is the country that had its commemorative Euro coin depicting two Christian saints, Cyril and Methodius, at first rejected by the European Commission, which told Bratislava it would need to re-design the coins and remove Christian symbols, including halos and a cross-adorned stole. Eventually the Slovakia Euro was issued with halos and crosses. This...

    A new German-Franco document that was presented on Thursday, states that EU countries that refuse to take refugees should pay to escape their responsibility, Reuters reports.The measure is seen as a form of “alternative solidarity” in which EU member states pay into the EU’s budget for developmental projects in Africa.The document aims to prevent renewed conflicts over taking migrants. By paying off their responsibility to take migrants, EU rows with countries that don’t want to take migrants or refugees could be prevented. Among other things, the document does say that a situation should be avoided in which all countries prefer...

    BUDAPEST (Reuters) - The Central European University, founded by George Soros, said on Monday it had been forced out of Hungary in “an arbitrary eviction” that violated academic freedom, and it confirmed plans to enroll new students in neighboring Austria next year. CEU’s statement is the culmination of a years-long struggle between Hungarian-born but U.S.-based Soros, who promotes liberal causes through his charities, and the nationalist, anti-immigrant government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban. “CEU has been forced out,” said CEU President and Rector Michael Ignatieff in a statement.

    Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, in a lecture at the University of Bonn on Monday, argued for a strong Europe composed of strong nation states. “If there is any country that needs a strong Europe, it is definitely Hungary,” he said, noting that Hungary, located in the middle of Europe with an open economy, has a history of losing out in conflicts between east and west. Szijjártó said some wanted weak EU member states within a kind of united states of Europe. Yet strong integration between weak countries is hard to achieve, he argued, adding that Hungary believes strong member states...
