I note this news snippet from the BBC. Headline: Italy migrant crisis: Charities 'colluding' with smugglers.
The story is just that: The NGOs — that's Non-Governmental Organizations, charities like Doctors Without Borders — are in cahoots with the people smugglers in Libya, so they can intercept boats full of illegals from Africa and shunt them on into Europe. Phone conversations have been intercepted, says the Beeb.
The organizations say their intentions are humanitarian. Their only interest, they say, is to save lives.
Quote from the Beeb report: "Chris Catrambone, who co-founded the Migrant Offshore Aid Station NGO to rescue migrants, told Reuters news agency [quote from him] 'more would die if we weren't there'." End quote, end quote.
Numbers of illegals making the Mediterranean crossing are up forty percent from last year.
This is a slow-motion disaster, Europe dying by its own humanitarian hand.
Not to worry, though. Mr. Macron has promised that once he's been elected President of France next month, he'll get the economy booming and create jobs for all. And British Prime Minister Theresa May has promised that after she's won her election in June, Britain's spending on foreign aid will remain at the present high levels.
So the really important things are being taken care of over there, no need to worry.
