The truth about the illegal immigrants in Greece...

A reply to Helena Smith’s article in The Guardian
regarding the treatment of the illegal immigrants in Greece

I confess that when I started reading this article I had the impression that it was April fool’s joke, but then I realized that I was reading a very well staged and organized propaganda full of inaccuracies, falsehoods and invalid arguments.

The truth about the situation in Greece with regard to illegal immigrants, their treatment by the authorities and their way of living here, is a far cry from what is presented in the article.

Greece, being the first European destination of immigrants from the Middle East, Southwest Asia and one of the first from northeast Africa, has to face border violations from illegal trafficking, almost on a daily basis by organized groups of immigrants, the majority of which have become “victims” of slave traders deliberately and knowingly, since they all pay from $5,000 to $10,000 fees each to be illegally transported here.
It makes sense to sympathize and pity the immigrants because many of them are forced to leave their motherland for economic reasons and/or due to political persecutions, on the search for a better future.

But is this really true?

In what sense can one afford $5,000 to $10,000 since the average monthly salary in his country does not exceed $50, even for a well-paid worker?

What kinds of transactions and agreements have been arranged in order for someone to find or pay back transportation fees worth of at least 100 times his paycheck, which of course, he does not even have?

How do these “poor” people gain access to such large sums of money, since, if you have $7,000 in your possession, you can even afford to build a villa in their countries?

In what sense can one sympathize with a person that can afford to pay ridiculous amounts of money or make illegal arrangements with the filthy mafia of the illegal traffickers to breach the borders of a country and invade it while seeking compassion, especially at a time when this country is deprived of the right to even support its own children?

In what sense is the individual who has illegally invaded a foreign country and forced entered without any documentation, no ID, no health certification and of course without even a passport characterized as an immigrant?

How on earth are we supposed to feel sorry for all those that enter our country by force and declare entirely false information? Declare different country of origin, different name and different age!
Has anyone ever wondered why this happens?

Has anyone ever wondered what and who is behind all this organized colonization of Greece by fanatic Islamists? Because you can be sure that is the case in Greece!

The juvenile detention centers in Greece are filled with rapists and murderers that while being over the age of 28, they have ALL declared being under the age of 17 in order to benefit from being treated as minors.

Who instructs them and organizes them?

Have your alleged humanitarian organizations ever investigated to expose these illegal trafficking rings or your sole purpose of existence is to collect the ridiculous amounts of the state subsidies and condemn Greece and the Greek people for “inappropriate” behavior?

The tens of thousands of murdered Greeks and the thousands of raped women and children by the hordes of the illegal immigrants constitute according to your reasoning the “appropriate” behavior?

The following table shows the official crime rates in Greece for the period 1998-2012 by nationality of the foreign offenders, according to which crime increased by 100% during the last decade, while the number of the criminals from Pakistan and other Islamic countries has increased by 1,000%!

And because we Greeks always prefer to argue with proofs and facts, in stark contrast with this despicable article that relies on speculations and alleged reports of others, I will reveal what is really happening in Greece through the following photos.

The traffickers carry the illegal immigrants on inflatable boats, especially designed, with tanks on the sides to achieve considerable autonomy and to be able to cross the waters between Turkey and the Greek islands, since the majority of the traffickers are Turks. When they approach Greece’s national waters they abandon the boat and embark on another vessel in order to evade arrest, leaving the illegal immigrants in the night, usually with bad weather conditions, to sail on their own, without any protection, no knowledge and no means of navigation whatsoever, towards the Greek coastline.

   
Very often these boats sink and consequently the Hellenic coast guard undertakes the task of rescuing the shipwrecked. There are many cases where the traffickers deliberately sink their boats so as to force the Greek authorities to deal with the rescue of the shipwrecked and not the pursuit of the traffickers, hence they manage to escape.


After their rescue and the provision of first aid services, the illegal immigrants are transported for precautionary reasons, and also because most of them are dehydrated and hungry, to the nearest health center or hospital, or to temporary medical facilities, in case the transfer to a hospital is not feasible.


The operations to safeguard the coastline and to rescue the shipwrecked illegal immigrants cost Greek taxpayers with hundreds of thousands of Euros on a daily basis.

For the next hours and days, dozens of volunteering islanders provide food and clothing to the illegal immigrants to facilitate their living, at least for the first few days.


Then, once it is decided where they’ll be settled, they are transported under humane conditions, even with standard leased buses, to their destination.



Usually, they are transported to urban centers, but lately they have been transported at especially designed and guarded areas with high standard facilities, where they are provided shelter, food, clothing, and enjoy full health care (tests, medications, etc.) under respectable conditions.

Their arrival is welcomed there by the several representatives of their communities, representatives of NGOs and human rights organizations that monitor the compliance with the international standards for the humane treatment and scrutinize the whole processes and the ways they are being treated by the national authorities and institutions.



These detention sites are contained to ensure the safety and well-being of the illegal immigrants, but also to ensure the safety of the people living in the surrounding areas, since we actually know nothing about who these people are and of course, since we are unaware of their health condition and medical history.

As shown in the photos, the accommodations are contained, new with air conditioning and also with cleanable toilets and running water.


The illegal immigrants have no contact with the guards, and there are no cases of abuse or violence. Whenever needed, there is a 24-hour ambulance available for the transportation of patients to the hospital, even for the simplest medical tests.



The rescue, transportation, health care, safeguard and accommodation of the illegal immigrants cost tens of millions of Euros daily, which are derived from the Greek People’s deprived income and the budget cuts on health and education.

At the same time, some other illegal immigrants that have already managed to settle in the urban centers are “working” hard to earn their living…


or participate in “peaceful” protests claiming their “human rights”:


The only reality is that despite all the problems they create, and despite the crime that is being fostered in their communities, the authorities, the state institutions and the Greek citizens continue to treat the illegal immigrants with great patience and respect.

Even during the conduct of routine street checks of documents or when seeking for wanted criminals among them, police officers behave with an impeccable professional manner and no signs of violence or force are observed.


But what you fail to realize is that these people live in completely different worlds from ours and even in their everyday lives, their customs, traditions and religious ceremonies are diametrically opposite to our own culture. So, we the Greeks have been forced to witness such vile and uncivilized acts that endanger the psychological health of our children.



One can easily identify, even when walking in the streets of Athens, those that descent from the City of Light, from those that might as well be characterized as obscurantist, mystical and dangerous to themselves and others. Our culture, customs and traditions assert humanity, freedom and nobility, with respect to people and especially women. The Greeks have always respected and honored the unique nature of women.


You see, ladies of the European salons, there is always a contrasting aspect in everything... One stems from the standpoint of the self-declared humanists that blindly adhere to the lies of the propaganda operators and the other comes directly from the eyewitnesses and the victims themselves, the people that lost their jobs, because all the of them are now occupied by illegal immigrants.

I do not know what kind of sources you use to inform yourself, but definitely the kind of information YOU fancy and choose to listen and believe, have no influence over the people who actually suffer the implications of the phenomenon...


For the more than 30,000 homeless and destitute Greeks, who forage day after day in the garbage or beg for alms from the fellow citizens, just because they lost their jobs since the invasion of more than 6 million illegal immigrants that have taken their jobs, your theories and your opinions of the situation will never reach their ears, because they sleep beside the passing cars and they cannot understand your interests, nor can anyone give them a sensible explanation of why they, after having paid their share of taxes and social contributions for many years, now they are forced to sleep on the streets, without food and even deprived of the right to obtain primary healthcare services unless they pay for hospital admission fees, while the illegal immigrants are housed in new buildings with air conditioning and running water, with daily food and full medical coverage!

WHY?


And for those who will rush in calling me a racist, I will be glad to inform them that the only racism that exists in Greece is against these people here:


These are the people that are actually being treated with the most disgraceful and ruthless way by the imposed government. These are the people that are being treated as social outcasts, deprived of food, safety and humane living conditions. Definitely nothing like the full mobilization of the competent state bodies and the overall care the illegal immigrants enjoy.

The issue of illegal immigration is neither simple, nor can we take it light-headedly. An internationally organized and systematic process of replacing the Greek People with certain racial and religious groups has been put into force. We are already witnessing the results in Greece, especially in urban centers.

To all those who choose to turn a blind eye or do not want to admit it, because of their selfish ties with the servile regime that governs Greece or because of other wretched interests, I would only say this:




And in the end, we will still be proud even if we are left with a wounded but alive dignity...
And a faded Greek Flag!

This is why we have the spirit to keep on looking you straight in the eye!



Because no matter what you do...
 Greece never dies!
