Further dissolving signs for the euro-circus

French hypocrisy, Greek solidarity, and further rise of fascism


Another example of unbelievable Western hypocrisy came out from France's stance to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia on a visit to Paris. From independent :

France has been accused of devaluing its highest national honour after the Legion of Honour was quietly awarded to the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia on a visit to Paris. The French government was among the most vocal outside the Middle East in its condemnation of Saudi mass executions earlier this year, calling the kingdom’s killing of 47 people “deeply deplorable”. Yet almost two months to the day after that statement was issued, President François Hollande awarded his nation’s most prestigious award to the heir to the Saudi throne, Prince Mohammed bin Naif.

The Crown Prince’s visit to the Elysee Palace actually took place on Friday 4 March, the same day as Mr Hollande held talks with Angela Merkel about how to cope with the refugee crisis. But while Ms Merkel’s trip featured in a number of videos and photos posted online by the Elysee social media team, any reference or evidence of the Saudi delegation was conspicuously absent.

[...]

Neither report made mention of the refugee crisis, throughout which Saudi Arabia been accused of failing to take its fair share of asylum seekers. And given the “discretion” surrounding the visit, it is not known whether Mr Hollande felt able to bring up the Saudi human rights record.

In this repulsive Europe everyone acts now for its own interest. Germany is the neo-colonial power inside the eurozone, through the debt-enslaved colonies like Greece. France bets on the "experience" of its colonial past and "invests" in the new colonialism outside the EU borders. Everyone else seeks to get rid of the refugees. Nothing has left to remind the Europe of solidarity and humanitarian values, if there was such a thing, ever.

Yet, it is people who show the way to solidarity. The Greek people, despite their difficult economic situation during six years of catastrophe imposed by the ECB, IMF, European Commission, massively responded to the call of the "Social Solidarity Network", to contribute with specific items for the relief of the refugees. As china.org reports:

Despite six years of recession and tough austerity measures, Greek citizens have not turned their backs on stranded migrants and refugees who have been trapped in the country and cannot continue their journey to western Europe due to border restrictions along the Balkan route.

More than 12,000 people responded to the call of the NGO "Social Solidarity Network" in Athens on Sunday to donate goods to assist refugees, with compassion prevailing once more time in the debt-ridden country.

Syntagma square in the center of the Greek capital transformed until late in the evening into a big open warehouse where priority items were gathered for refugees. The response to the event, which was organized through social media, came as a surprise to the network as well.

[...]

Elders and young couples with babies in prams, even people in wheelchairs, went to the meeting point to contribute to the donation drive.

A chain of volunteers sorted through all the goods gathered, from sleeping bags and rain gear, to baby carriers and blankets.

Social Solidarity Network had posted on social media a detailed list with first-aid necessities such as gauze and tongue depressors, as well as basic medicines, disposable cutlery and food containers to be distributed to two refugee reception centers set up recently at Piraeus Port and at the former Athens airport premises at Ellinikon on the capital's southern coast.

Meanwhile, in Slovakia the neo-nazis won 14 seats:

In Slovakia, an extreme right-wing party has made surprising gains in the elections, picking up 14 parliamentary seats. The People’s Party-Our Slovakia is led by Marian Kotleba, known for his past ties to neo-Nazism, including his decision to wear a uniform modeled after the World War II-era militia of the Nazi-sponsored Slovak State. The party of Slovakia’s prime minister—who himself has campaigned against refugees—finished first in the polls. Slovakia takes over the presidency of the Council of the European Union in July.” [democracynow.org]

While Turkey continues the bargain with the euro-clowns, using the refugees in its soil. Everything shows that the euro-circus, sooner or later, will fall apart.
