A clear danger

The danger of Greece turning into a vast camp for refugees and migrants has existed from the very first moment people began migrating from Middle Eastern and North African countries to Europe. This danger is now visible.

The so-called hot spots – centers where refugees and migrants are registered and processed – will obviously not deter the flow of miserable people flocking to Europe, although delays in their completion by the Greek government are allowing Brussels and the country’s partners to concoct plans for Greece’s isolation, essentially by transferring Europe’s exterior borders to the Greek-Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) border.

In this way they won’t even have to formally remove Greece from the Schengen agreement.

Clearly they are aiming to do so in a de facto manner and turn the country into an massive refugee and migrant camp.

The consequences will be terrible for Greece if they succeed.
