Polish Foreign Minister Demands Germany Pay $1 Trillion In Reparations

Polish Foreign Minister Demands Germany Pay $1 Trillion In Reparations:

Poland has escalated its demands for World War II reparations from Germany from “billions” a month ago, to “about $1 trillion” today as Poland’s foreign minister demanded “serious talks” were needed with Germany.

Relations between Berlin and Warsaw have been on edge recently over issues including Germany’s push to share responsibility for refugees across Europe – which Poland has rejected – to the European Commission’s infringement procedure against PiS plans to have more control over the judiciary. Last month the EU sued Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic, forcing them to accept refugees even as the rest of Europe turns a blind eye to the 100 thousand refugees that have made landfall in recent months in Italy.

But, as The Independent now reports, the rhetoric is heating up.

5 killed, 36 injured, 500 000 homes without power after severe storm hits Poland

5 killed, 36 injured, 500 000 homes without power after severe storm hits Poland:

Five people have been killed and at least 36 injured as a result of falling trees after a series of severe thunderstorms hit Poland late Friday into Saturday, August 12, 2017.

Two girls, aged 13 and 14, were crushed by falling trees while sleeping in a tent when a storm hit the campground for Girl Guides and Boy Scouts in the northern village of Suszek. Another 20 children were said to have been injured.

Adam Kralisz, chairman of the Lodz Region of the Scouting Association of the Republic (Poland), where the scouts were from, told the private Polsat television that evacuation was ordered immediately, but conditions were horrendous. “We had to force our way for kilometers through the forest, among falling trees,” he said, as reported by Reuters.

EU Gives Hungary, Poland, One Month to Back Down and Accept Migrant Quotas

EU Gives Hungary, Poland, One Month to Back Down and Accept Migrant Quotas:

The European Union’s (EU) unelected executive branch has given the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland one month to back down and start admitting migrants from the Middle East and North Africa or face legal consequences.

EU To Force Poland, Hungary And Czech Republic To Accept Refugees – #MigrantCrisis

EU To Force Poland, Hungary And Czech Republic To Accept Refugees:

One month after the EU’s executive Commission launched legal cases against Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic for “defaulting on their legal obligations” by refusing to comply with the EU’s refugee quotas (i.e., accept migrants), on Wednesday the three Central European nations suffered another blow after Brussels mounted a legal fightback to force them to comply with EU refugee quotas. The top European Union court’s adviser dismissed a challenge brought by Slovakia and Hungary against the obligatory relocation of refugees across the bloc, as it prepared to sign-off legal suits against the holdout countries.

The two states, backed by Poland, wanted the court to annul a 2015 EU scheme to have each member state host a number of refugees to help ease pressure on Greece and Italy, struggling with mass arrivals across the Mediterranean. Supported by Germany, Italy and Brussels, the EU’s “relocation” law has become one of the bloc’s most divisive recent policy initiatives, forced through over the objections of states from eastern and central Europe.

The euroskeptic governments in Warsaw and Budapest have refused to take in a single asylum-seeker under the plan (which may explain the lack of terrorist events on their home soil). Slovakia and the Czech Republic have also stalled, citing security concerns after a raft of Islamist attacks in the EU in recent years. Quoted by the FT, the EU’s migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos said he regretted the decision of the three member states “not to show solidarity and to ignore our repeated calls to participate in this common effort” adding that none of the responses from Budapest, Warsaw or Prague to the commission “justified that they do not implement the relocation decision”.

EU Threatens To Strip Poland Of Its Sovereignty For Being ‘Anti-Soros’

EU Threatens To Strip Poland Of Its Sovereignty For Being ‘Anti-Soros’:

European Union leaders have threatened to strip Poland of its sovereignty amid fears that an anti-Soros movement is spreading throughout Europe, spearheaded by the Polish people. 

The EU has threatened to invoke Article 7 – a move which would see Poland lose the right to vote and would see the country completely stripped of all of its assets .

Breitbart.com reports: The European Union announced Wednesday that it would be taking further steps against Poland for what it views as a “systematic threat to the rule of law.” The political bloc has criticised the Polish government’s proposed judicial reform in the past and is now eying a move that could suspend Warsaw’s vote within the union by invoking Article 7, Die Presse reports.

Europe’s Migrant Crisis: Views From Central Europe

Europe’s Migrant Crisis: Views From Central Europe:

Authored by Soeren Kern via The Gatestone Institute,

  • Many so-called asylum seekers have refused to relocate to Central and Eastern Europe because the financial benefits there are not as generous as in France, Germany or Scandinavia. In addition, hundreds of migrants who have been relocated to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which rank among the poorest EU countries, have since fled to Germany and other wealthier countries in the bloc.
  • “It needs to be said clearly and directly: This is an attack on Europe, on our culture, on our traditions.” — Poland’s Prime Minister Beata Szyd?o.
  • “I think we have a right to decide that we do not want a large number of Muslim people in our country. That is a historical experience for us.” — Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary, referring to Hungary’s occupation by the Ottoman Empire from 1541 to 1699.

The European Union has initiated legal action against the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland for failing to comply with a controversial order to take in thousands of migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The so-called infringement procedure, which authorizes the European Commission, the powerful executive arm of the European Union, to sue member states that are considered to be in breach of their obligations under EU law, could lead to massive financial penalties.

Poland did not invite refugees, has right to say ‘no’: Kaczynski – #MigrantCrisis

Poland did not invite refugees, has right to say ‘no’: Kaczynski:

Poland has a moral right to say ‘no’ to refugees, the country’s most powerful politician said on Saturday.

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, head of the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS), gave his views on immigration at a party convention in Przysucha, 100 km (60 miles) south of Warsaw.

“We have not exploited the countries from which these refugees are coming to Europe these days, we have not used their labor force and finally we have not invited them to Europe. We have a full moral right to say ‘no’,” Kaczynski said in a speech broadcast on television.

71% Of People In Poland Want To Ban Muslim Immigration – #MigrantCrisis

71% Of People In Poland Want To Ban Muslim Immigration:

The only way to protect Poland from Islamic terror attacks is to not allow Muslims to migrate en masse. That is now the view of 71% of the people.

This is becoming the major issue in Poland and is at its core dispute with Brussels. As a reminder, Poland recently followed Hungary’s lead in corralling migrants…

Poland is mulling setting up special camps where asylum seekers would be housed in containers and kept behind fences in the event of another migration crisis, according to the country’s interior minister.

“The thing is to be ready for such a situation in the form of places in which those waiting for deportation would be kept who may try to break the law,” Mariusz B?aszczak told Polish radio on Tuesday. “That’s all it entails. Besides, there are similar container camps in France and in Germany.”
