It’s hard for people in Ireland to appreciate what has happened to Western Europe over the past few years.
The migrant crisis, which was exponentially worsened by German Chancellor Merkel’s catastrophic decision to unilaterally open the borders of Europe to millions of migrants from Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, has forever altered the societies of our continental neighbours.
If we continue to acquiesce to the agenda of the EU, as sure as night follows day, we too, will experience this tragic reality in time.
Aside from the terrorist atrocities we have become used to, the ever-present threat of more random attacks and the almost unbearable financial strain of dealing with the migrant crisis the nations of Europe are facing a more insidious and far reaching consequence.
During a recent trip to Rome the very atmosphere had changed from the previous time I had visited Italy over 12 years ago. Tension and fear can be seen on every aware person’s face.
The streets are swamped with non-Europeans struggling to make money in any way, legally or illegally, that they can. Most of whom originate not in Syria but in Sub-Sharan African and Central Asia.
Underneath the tension and fear, is a smouldering anger. Speaking to Italians or other Europeans should be a sobering wake up call. Far from the Bundestag in Berlin or EU parliament in Brussels, ordinary European people are rapidly running out of patience.
They see the unfolding danger both physically and demographically that is enveloping their nations. The fear for the future of their children and their way of life.
In Rome, military checkpoints guard every tourist attraction with automatic assault rifles and armoured vehicles, concrete bollards barricade main thoroughfares and every thinking person realizes that there is a clock, constantly ticking down.
This crisis is only deepening every hour of every day and the societal strains are quickly becoming too much to bare.
