Border Staff Flee Greek Island After Migrants Riot
European border officials are being pulled out of Greek islands over concerns for their safety, following a spate of riots and violence by migrants.
Since March, migrants arriving on the Greek islands have been prevented from moving on to the mainland as the European Union (EU) hopes to return at least some of them to Turkey.
But due to growing frustrated at the delay, the migrants have taken to burning down their accommodation and rioting, the Daily Mail has reported.
As a result, Belgium has taken the decision to withdraw its staff from the islands, fearing for their safety.

Hmm...given that the majority of our politicians are not idiots...corrupt perhaps, but not stupid, one could almost conclude that flooding the EU with violent and culturally polar immigrants is a deliberate policy to initiate gross resentment and introduce a pro-right-wing POV among the people...if so, to what end?
Joachim Gauck has put himself at odds with Chancellor Angela Merkel, the famous Europhile, expressing fears the Union is moving too fast.
The federal president called for a pause suggesting every country should be able to discuss “what they want to achieve at what pace”.
The German politician said the EU would do well to allow people to see the dangers of populism and why Donald Trump won the US presidency.
Thirdly, the outcome means that a helpless European Council is effectively declaring itself politically bankrupt: the de facto relegation of a member state to the status of a protectorate openly contradicts the democratic principles of the European Union.

So when Europe takes a hard right, don't think it's because Europeans are just being racist.
The fact is that uncontrolled immigration from an alien culture is an experiment that has some serious risks for the host nation – risks of ghettoization, failed integration and a cultural lasting mismatch.
Immigrants riot because they have been sold a lie, and the streets of Europe are not paved in gold. It's just a shame that these people did not riot and protest when they lived in the crap-hole lands they came from because they may have forced change there.
