The Pope has proclaimed a duty for Italians to welcome “immigrants” entering Italy illegally from North Africa.  Italians might be better advised to consider just whom they are to welcome:

 

 

The incident aboard the vessel, which was carrying about 100 migrants, took place in the Strait of Sicily, between Tunisia and Italy.

According to a group of Nigerian and Ghanaian survivors, a fight broke out over religion, with a group of Muslim passengers threatening the Nigerians and Ghanaians after they declared themselves to be Christians.

“The threats then materialised and 12 people, all Nigerian and Ghanaian, are believed to have drowned in the Mediterranean,” the police statement added.

The remaining passengers were rescued and brought to Palermo, where the 15 alleged attackers, who came from Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal, were arrested.The boat, like many of the claptrap vessels flooding Italy`s shores each week with migrants fleeing conflict and poverty in Africa and the Middle East, had set out from Libya on Tuesday, according to the survivors.

The police said the distraught Nigerians and Ghanaians told a “dreadful” story of their struggle to escape with their lives “by forcefully resisting attempts to drown them, forming a veritable human chain in some cases.”

  1. It’s ironic that the murder of Christians by Islamists is hardly newsworthy. Won’t even make a ripple in this country.

  2. Typical liberal conumdrum…. And now we have ISIS forming at the border near El Paso. Is Archbishop Gomez going to continue trying to guilt Catholics into welcoming them too?

  3. Since they won’t be shot, they should work ten hours a day for life in prison. be paid and have all wages go to compensate the relatives of the drowned….and their descendants.

  4. They can stay in the Vatican with Pope Francis and in the homes of the EU leaders & the Int’t Red Cross executives.
