Posted on 06/21/2018 9:30:01 PM PDT by Nextrush
Italy says it will seize two migrant rescue ships in the Mediterranean, amid a deepening row over migrants.
Two German NGO ships carrying migrants "will be seized" to determine their legal status.
The move comes as French President Emmanuel Macron attacked the "leprosy" of anti-EU feeling, angering Italy's new populist government.
Italy sparked the fresh row earlier this month when it refused to take in the Aquarius rescue ship....
Leaders from the 10 EU member states will meet in Brussels on Sunday to discuss how best to stem the flow of migrants into the bloc.
The Italian government earlier said it will not sign up to any EU plan unless it makes helping Italy a priority, while Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary-known as the Visegrad Group-said they will boycott the talks....
In a speech in Brittany, Mr. Macron said anti-EU feeling was rising "a bit like a leprosy across Europe", including in "neighboring countries".....
Deputy Italian Prime Minister and leader of the Five Star movement Luigi DiMaio tweeted in Italian that Mr. Macron's words were "offensive and misplaced", saying that "true leprosy" is when countries turn back migranrs and then "preach to us" about calls for them to be redistributed to other EU states......

That's what happens when new political parties take over the legislative branch and get the executive along with it in Italy's Parliamentary system.
We're stuck with Republicans and Democrats in our Congress.
The French Globalist-Corporatist President Emmanuel Macron called anti-EU feelings in Europe "leprosy".
Hillary's "deplorables" was something but this French dude thinks people like us in Europe are "lepers".
We got two new Coast Guard cutters! We got two new Coast Guard cutters!
Many of these NGO ships are funded by Soros fronts, and they’re part of a deliberate effort to promote migration, not any “rescue” effort. Seizing them would be a major blow in stopping, or at least stemming, this nonsense.
I don’t get where in the world all these people are coming from all of a sudden. They have land, they have seeds, they have manpower, why in the name of God, do they have to travel thousands of miles instead of making their countries livable and comfortable.
There is something wrong with this and it is at the root cause. STAY THE HELL HOME. THERE IS NO NEED FOR FOREIGNERS TO LEAVE HOME!
Thank you, Truth, for some common sense~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Give em one warning shot over the bow to turn around and don’t come back. IF they don’t, then blow em out of the water right where they’re at.
Look up the ‘Kalergi plan’.
Garibaldi and Cavour are remembered as the fathers of the Italian nation; Matteo Salvini may be remembered as the saviour of the Italian nation.
Well, I looked up the Kalegi plan and admittedly, I did not read all the details, if this Kalegi guy thinks he is going to eliminate Italians, then all my ancestors, whom I admire, are whimps. And I do not believe that.
So, Kalegi, Schmelgegi, the Italian forte will prevail.
“STAY THE HELL HOME. THERE IS NO NEED FOR FOREIGNERS TO LEAVE HOME!”
This is also what the American Indians said to the Spanish visitors some hundreds of years ago.
But Italy still isn’t being pro-active, intercepting these ships before they reach their maritime border - and until they do, they will be played by Soros and the bleeding-heart NGO’s.
Once any ship enters European territory, the migrants can claim full refugee status and instantly get all sorts of generous EU legal protections - from that point, it’s a real legal pain to get rid of them.
The Italian Navy needs to park 12 miles off Libya, just inside international waters, and keep these smugglers well away from Italy. Don’t even give them a chance to get near Europe.
Yeah, but now Italy has started seizing the migrant ships. This is a brilliant ploy, taking hold of these groups expensive boats. One German peace group has already said it will stop their migrant missions due to Italy threatening to take their boat and the flagship Netherlands saying they will no longer be responsible for those voyages.
Seizing the ships is an excellent, excellent idea.
The French Globalist-Corporatist-PUPPET President Emmanuel Macron called anti-EU feelings in Europe “leprosy”.
Amazing how those that don’t live with the consequences of these decisions are so vocal about other people standing up for themselves and their people.
After seizing these Soros Navy vessels, can they scuttle them?
How about a Pay Per View livestream of torpedoing them?
I’d buy that for a dollar!
Just a quick question, before my leperous thumbs fall off:
Isn’t siezing foreign-flagged shipa frowned upon? Maybe even an act of war?
