And this is not a secret.
This is a common tactic in Islamic military strategy, like when they used hospitals and schools to store munitions in Iraq. IS itself announced that a major part of their strategy of conquest would be to “flood” Europe with illegal Islamic immigrants. I think the number they promised was half a million.
They know that the Italian coast guard won’t fire on the boats. They know we have this odd Christian-based idea that it’s always morally wrong to just randomly kill people who are not posing an immediate deadly threat.
This is an idea that their book and their demonic “god” tells them is a form of weakness. One that they will have no compunction at all about exploiting.
One of the things that the compromised European media will not tell anyone is that the boats are usually only fuelled up for half the trip. Then the traffickers will call the Italian coast guard themselves and, essentially, use the lives of the people aboard as a means of extorting a “rescue,” knowing the boat will not be towed back whence it came, but onto Italian soil.
