They are afraid to go back because their lives are in danger but the EU is talking about doing a deal with Afghanistan to send them back.
We are now talking to the Africans. At a Brussels conference recently there was talk about sending people back to Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Senegal and Ethiopia. Leaked documents show that among the other countries been considered are Sudan and Eritrea. Imagine doing a deal with Sudan to stop people coming out of the country into Europe. The dictator of Sudan, Omar al Bashir, is wanted for war crimes and now the EU is considering hiring him to stop migration at source from the Horn of Africa. Last month Amnesty International released a report with evidence that earlier this year Bashir's air force was dropping chemical weapons on some of the remote villages yet the EU is interested in doing business with this person in order to stop migrants coming to Europe.
The many people who are still drowning in the Mediterranean are not coming because everything was grand where they were but they would like it better in Europe. They are being forced from their homelands and the West has played a huge part in that. We bear a huge responsibility for what is going on. The race for control of African minerals by western powers is linked to the fact that so many migrants are trying to get out of the continent of Africa. Huge numbers are coming across the Mediterranean from the Middle Eastern region too. Look at the number of Palestinian refugees in the world today. We still entertain the Israelis as if there is nothing wrong with their relationship with the Palestinians, or with the fact that they are engaging in genocide. They are trying to obliterate the Palestinian people and our Government is okay with that. Will we continue to trade with Saudi Arabia? There are people in here who say we should have nothing to do with the Russians. I would not defend them for one second, as what they are doing in Syria is deplorable, but so is what the Americans, the French and the British are doing. The Saudis today are arming Al-Nusra which has become a more powerful force than ISIS. We reap what we sow. There are munitions going through Shannon to Saudi Arabia that are being used to kill innocent people in the Yemen and arms going through to Al-Nusra who are every bit as mad as the ISIS crowd yet we are still comfortable working with them. When will we regain our neutrality? I firmly believe that the majority of Irish people would like Ireland to be neutral.
