EU admits: Only one in five "Syrian refugees" is actually Syrian

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The EU's official statistics office, EuroStat, has just revealed that only 21 percent of the so-called "Syrian refugees" flooding into Europe are actually Syrian.

This means the other 79 percent are -- as The Rebel has reported since the beginning -- economic migrants, not true refugees.

The majority are coming to Europe to work, or to take advantage of its generous welfare programs.

Remember: There are very few women and children among these migrants. It's the opposite of what we'd expect to see from people escaping a war zone.

I'll say it again: We need to help genuine refugees, not these economic opportunists.

One way to do that is to destroy ISIS so that Syrians can stay in their homeland.


The media won’t tell you all the facts about the migrant crisis.
FIND OUT only from The Rebel.

Today the CTV reports statistics that are almost the opposite of what Ezra reports.
“Frank Jordans, The Associated Press
Published Friday, September 25, 2015 10:29AM EDT
BERLIN — German officials said Friday they estimate that almost a third of asylum-seekers who arrive in the country and claim to be Syrian are in fact from elsewhere. . . . The fact that up to 30 per cent of those claiming to be Syrian are from elsewhere doesn’t mean they don’t qualify for asylum.”
Is Canadian Journalism this incompetent or do Governments just make up data to suit their mood at the moment?

Oh, and the Lefties? They want to disarm you so you can’t resist the “goldrush.”

Stand up for your values.

Do nothing when people flee war.

Forgot to mention that these tents can house approx 3,000,000 people.

In Saudi Arabia, there are 100,000 air conditioned tents spread out over a 20 Sq K valley sitting empty. They are only used 5 days of the year by the Hajj pilgrims. They were built in the 90’s & in 1997 were renovated & fireproofed. They are divided in camps with kitchen/bathroom facilities. So, how come no refugees taken in, but instead they have offered to build 500 mosques in EU. Wonder how many churches Christians would be allowed to build in S/A. Could it be that these refugees are not refugees at all but a mass infiltration into the West. Also, why are large amounts of good food thrown away by the wayside by these so called refugees? Unless countries start sealing their borders this will not stop soon & it’s very alarming to allow so many people to enter without proper checks, but realistically how in the world can they check them?

Bart, judging by your comment you would only be right if you only scrolled down to only the netherlands. Hmmm… now that is a hoax?

I’m sure the people who have been waiting patiently and in order to enter Canada must love seeing articles must love this. Hyacinth…great articles.

Half of these “immigrants” or whatever, will probably just ungratefully grab the money and whatever else they can get from “I’m helping all the muslims. Aren’t I a good person. No beheading in my country because I love all the muslims.” Merkel and then go back to their sickening place of origin to use the money for something illegal. The German citizens should be complaining over giving their money away to low lives and not using this money for them (the German citizens). But then again what good does complaining do. The elite leaders are going to do what they want anyway and to hell with the German citizens.

Bart, argument sake even at 53% (which is only representative of the Netherlands) that is still a very high number. Women and children theoretically should still outnumber the men not the other way around if they are truly refugees not economic migrants.

Other statistics, not just from the report you mention, to be taken into account is the age structure that has been recorded:

Syria Demographics Profile 2014
Age Structure:
0-14 years: 33.1% (male 3,046,922/female 2,898,060)
15-24 years: 20.2% (male 1,833,802/female 1,789,854)
25-54 years: 37.9% (male 3,406,744/female 3,396,756)
55-64 years: 4.8% (male 429,644/female 440,980)
65 years and over: 3.9% (male 320,946/female 387,931)

Looking at these statistics and taking expectations regarding asylum into account women and children should outnumber the men. But what we are seeing is the reverse.

You are basing your conclusion on one document only: Asylum Trends
Monthly Report on Asylum Applications in The Netherlands and Europe
August 2015. It is a monthly report, meaning that by the time it is published new statistics are occurring daily. Plus you state “It actually is 53% and you can find that at the real source here:” That is from the statistical chart that is listed as “Top First asylum applications in The Netherlands” it does not represent the total number of the asylum applications for all of Europe.
From the actual chart you cite: (First asylum applications in The Netherlands
August 2015 – Syrian Arab Republic – 2,838 – 53%).

Page 12 of the report would be more of note, not what you pointed out, because it highlights total “First asylum applications in the EU, Norway and Switzerland in 2014 and 2015”, however, there are no percentage totals just numbers :
“First asylum applications in the EU from July 2014 – June 2015” specifically relevant to this thread is the column: “Syrian Arab Republic – 2015 Jun 16,475”.

Therefore, I would hazard a guess Ezra is right on the mark.

Oh, and by the way, Bart, (if you do the math) that makes Ezra bang on with his figure of 21% and you a fool.
commented 2015-09-23 10:27:25 -0400
Bart Meijer, you should read your own source material. If you had bothered to read the document all the way to the bottom you would realize that most of this document deals with the Netherlands only. At the bottom there is a chart: First asylum applications in the EU from July 2014 – June 2015 and the figures for Syrian citizen applications are 11,930 out of a total of 55,145. That is nowhere near 53%. Maybe in the Netherlands only but not the EU taken as a whole.

That was some disturbing material. Thank you for your efforts. I would advise everyone to click on the links provided by Hyacinth.

Don’t be too hard on Brinkman and the other leftist trolls. They are just playing their part as Lenin’s “useful idiots” (hopelessly “drunk with pink koolaid” as per Rick Plesnick) to achieve the socialist utopia, which has always ended up as dystopia.

Terry Black commented,
“Look at this! We have politicians` Mulcair and Trudeau and media Main Stream, in Canada that are out to do us in! Voting them in is like putting our families` in danger and committing suicide!”

Justin Trudeau is a very large threat to democracy, like father like son, one just needs to look at what values and examples that was instilled in him as a young lad:

“Pierre Trudeau opted not to serve in World War II, although of age and in good health. He traveled to Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union to participate in regime-sponsored propaganda activities. He wrote in praise of Mao’s murderous regime in China. Trudeau lavishly admired Fidel Castro, Julius Nyere, and other Third World dictators. The Soviet dissident Andrei Amalrik scathingly recalled Trudeau’s 1971 prime ministerial visit: Trudeau visited the Siberian city of Norilsk and lamented that Canada had never succeeded in building so large a city so far north – unaware, or unconcerned, that Norilsk had been built by slave labor. As prime minister, Trudeau to the extent he could tried to reorient Canada away from the great democratic alliance. It’s telling I think that Trudeau came to the edge of endorsing the communist coup against Solidarity in Poland in December 1981. Hours after the coup, Pierre Trudeau said: “If martial law is a way to avoid civil war and Soviet intervention, then I cannot say it is all bad.” He added “Hopefully the military regime will be able to keep Solidarity from excessive demands.”

Trudeau’s neutralism negated Canada’s former influence. Probably few remember now his farcical “peace initiative” of 1982. Convinced that Ronald Reagan was leading the world toward nuclear war, Trudeau shuttled between Western capitals to appeal for some kind of concession to soothe the Soviets. Results? Unconcealed disdain from the Americans, unconcealed boredom from the Soviets.
Canada had often before played an important go-between role. Not this time. Canada’s most important geopolitical asset is its unique relationship with the US. Trudeau had squandered that asset, and with it, his own influence. Yet Trudeau made it clear to Presidents Nixon and Carter that he personally disliked them, and to President Reagan that he personally despised him. When it came to foreign affairs, there was always a deep strain of frivolity and irresponsibility in Pierre Trudeau. What Trudeau did take seriously was our third ground of indictment: the stability and unity of the country. And it was here that he did perhaps his greatest harm.

… Defenders of Trudeau’s disastrous governance habitually rally around one great accomplishment: the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. … Unelected judges chosen by the prime minister at the prime minister’s sole discretion, unscrutinized by any elected body. The Charter encapsulates the grand theme of Trudeau’s political life: his lack of respect for the people who returned him to office again and again – his instinctive sympathy for power, the less accountable the better.

One story sums up the man best.
1979. Trudeau had lost that year’s election. His career seemed finished. Reporters awaited in the driveway of 22 Sussex Drive as he stepped into his gull-winged vintage Mercedes to speed away into history.
One shouted: “Mr. Prime Minister – any regrets?”
Pierre Trudeau pondered. Perhaps he had planned, perhaps he remembered something that Richard Nixon had said after losing the California governor’s race in 1962. In an instant Pierre Trudeau revised Nixon’s words to his own very different purpose. “Yes,” he said. “I regret I won’t have you to kick around any more.”

Alex Armutlu asked,
“The high male count is very disturbing. It is inevitable that there are terrorists at play here. But how many?

Answer: All if they are adherents to the Muslim faith. “Terrorist” in the sense of the destruction of western culture (i.e.: implementation of no-go zones, sharia law, Muslim street gangs, etc.).

Some in the Socialist Media are still perpetuating the myth that it is PM Harper’s fault the little boy drowned on the beach! They are still hoping to get traction from a story proven false! Why on earth would we ever trust them to give us the real story on what is going on in Europe?! At least with the internet, Canadians can find out the true facts on their own, if they are not too lazy to find out, or hopeless lefties drunk with pink kool aid! Like the ones that post on this site to rile up the regulars…….!

Yet to this day the media talks sympathetically of the crisis and have never mentioned once that this is a movement primarily of adult males.

Brinkman, who as always disagrees with normal people, probably gets an involuntary erection, just thinking of Sharia Law.

As most Canadians suspected, now confirmed that most of the people claiming refugee status are not trust worthy in stating their demise. I wonder what other bits of info the Border Security folks would find if they dug a little deeper into their back grounds.

The Islamists and their enablers on the left are standing over us laughing as we dig our own graves,surrendering our traditions and values.
Perhaps it is time to act in our own defence.
We are on our own. The time to act is now. What kind of action? Whatever it takes, what it has always taken,even if it means putting our lives on the line and not budging until the job is done.
Remember those who threw the torch to us. It is ours to hold it high.

And the Opposition would throw open our national doors to “help” tens of thousands of these “Syrian” “refugees”… would they even be checked out?

Last week, or the week before, Germany intercepted boxes of stolen and forged Syrian passports, allegedly for use by these “refugees”. Who’s to say something similar wouldn’t happen here? Especially since our country is “…in a recession…”

Basically, we’d be accepting a ton of illegal aliens, and even Ontario forced Canada to limit temporary foreign workers… what would we do with these, um, “people”?
