Welcome to Europe! Soros Adding Fuel to the Fire of EU's Refugee Crisis

American business magnate George Soros is making every effort to boost the refugee flow to Europe, by encouraging asylum seekers to travel to the continent and urging the European leaders to fork out, F. William Engdahl notes.

George Soros, the notorious business magnate, is shifting the responsibility for America's adventurism in the Middle East onto Europe, most notably Germany, American-German researcher, historian and strategic risk consultant F. William Engdahl underscores.

"Since John D. Rockefeller was advised to protect his wealth from government taxation by creating a tax-exempt philanthropic foundation in 1913, foundations have been used by American oligarchs to disguise a world of dirty deeds under the cover 'doing good for mankind,' known by the moniker 'philanthropy' for mankind-loving," Engdahl writes in his recent article for New Eastern Outlook.

George Soros, "a prominent international supporter of democratic ideals and causes" is no exception to the rule.

Under the false pretext of "democracy promotion" the notorious magnate created a network of foundations and instigated a series blatant regime changes in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet republics after the collapse of the USSR.

"Now his foundations are up to their eyeballs in promoting propaganda serving the US-UK war agenda for destroying stability in Syria as they did in Libya three years ago, creating the current EU refugee crisis," Engdahl stresses.

It seems that Soros is making every effort to exacerbate the ongoing refugee crisis in the EU: the infamous philanthropist is urging European leaders to accept about one million of refugees annually and at the same time he is encouraging the desperate asylum seekers to flee to Europe.

Furthermore, Soros cynically recommends the European leaders to fork out and rebuild the asylum system.

"The EU should provide €15,000 ($16,800) per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health care, and education costs — and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states. It can raise these funds by issuing long-term bonds using its largely untapped AAA borrowing capacity…" the magnate states in his September article for Project Syndicate.

Soros completely ignores the fact that many European powers are currently struggling with domestic economic crises.

"Soros is generous with other peoples' money," Engdahl remarks.

And George Soros has yet more ideas how to spend European taxpayers' money: "he calls on the EU to cough up an added annual commitment to 'frontline countries' (Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan) of at least €8-10 billion annually."

In order to add more fuel to the fire, Soros' network of NGOs in Syria are spreading anti-government propaganda and demonizing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Soros-funded organizations have also been promoting the implementation of a "No-Fly Zone" in Syria. Similar no-fly zones had been established in Iraq after 1991 and in Libya in 2012 in order to "bomb those countries back to the stone age," the researcher recalls.

One of the key advocates for a US-UK no-fly zone is Avaaz, a "foundation partner" of Soros' Open Society. Another Soros-financed NGO involved in a propaganda war against Bashar al-Assad are Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, Engdahl points out.

"The Middle East and other wars today including Ukraine are the product of the foreign policy doctrine set out in 1992 by then Defense Assistant Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, the infamous Wolfowitz Doctrine that justifies "pre-emptive" war, free from any oversight from the UN Security Council, against any nation or group of nations which threaten US 'Sole Superpower' domination," the researcher elaborates.

Infamous magnate George Soros — "the hedge fund speculator turned self-proclaimed philanthropist" — is a part of that "pre-emptive war machine," according to Engdahl.

    Soros is related to MOAS (Μigrant Offshore Aid Station), an NGO which intends to begin rescue operations in East Aegean, about 12-14 miles away from the shores of Turkey. MOAS belongs to German OGI, Schiebel Caritas Germany, Unique Maritime Group and Soros' Avaaz.
    Perhaps the real purpose of MOAS and Frontex and EU in the Aegean is not about rescuing anyone, because Turkey can block any ship leaving its shores in the first place. (So why rescue them in the sea?) Their aim is to provide reconnaissance to NATO and eventually block Russian ships in their way out to the South Mediterranean, by giving de facto rights to Turkey in patrolling the Greek Aegean.

    George Soros and his family are global parasites, why some country that has been economically damaged by this snake hasn't knock him and his equally disgusting family off is beyond me

    It's cear that Soros hates Europe.
  • Be very careful, the US wants to get all so-called problem peoples basically majority of population, out of the Middle East, then destroy the terrorists and look like the good guys in the Western media; empty the land so to speak, then take over. All of the refugees they want to be your problem because there are very few humanitarians in government or in business in the US. Then, here is where one must be careful, they are setting up NATO to create WWIII so they then can demolish Europe and have the Middle East too. The USA cannot be trusted, I, we have lived for decades under their promising words with NO substance.
  • I'm constantly amazed how people like Soros who stir it up so much have never experienced serious blowback. He must have a shit tonne of enemies but I suppose he hides behind the US Empire. I wonder how long that protection will last? I reckon until someone has the guts to strike back and the watch the cowards run.

    Maybe Russia should found an anti Federal Reserve campaign group in Washington and let's see how the neocon bastards like it.

    It is hypocritical for Soros to pose as a saviour of the people displaced by the war in Syria when it is he who is a major advocate of the US policy of regime-change.
  • The silent and often invisible radicalisation of the most intelligent, most educated and most innocent young people by the Soros organisations in many countries around the world, must not be ignored. From innocent and bright individuals they are transformed into powerful weapons for achieving the economic, political and geopolitical goals of Soros and his favourite countries and multinational corporations. These radicalised intelligent people are no longer allowed to have individual life or choice. They only have to blindly follow the directions of a network that is growing around the world with a geometrical progression. These radicalised individuals are everywhere, in any organisation, on any street, in any institution, and soon they will be in any home, ready to act as per their directions; ready to set back anyone; ready to build up a dirty file for anyone; ready to politically assassinate and undermine leaders and governments; ready to create superficial emergency situations and false insurance claims; ready to create chaos that will allow them to silently achieve their goals; and ready to do many things to anyone who is in the way of the economic, political, geopolitical goals of a few countries and multinational corporations. Every radicalised and transformed individual has a mission to continue the radicalisation process. The first victims are the members of their families and their friends. Those who refuse to be part of this vicious cycle are threated, punished, manipulated, their life are destroyed, their reputation is destroyed, and sometimes their personal information is exploited and their life is fully controlled. The refugees and welfare recipients are part of all this. Refugees and welfare recipients around the western dominated world have become weapons for achieving the same political, geopolitical, and economic goals. This translates into the equation of more refugees and welfare recipients equal to more money and more power for the involved parties. [Refugees and welfare recipients are not given all the payments to which they are entitled, but the full amount of their entitlements is taken from the welfare budgets.] This has been made possible with secretive policies of the installed governments with ‘colour revolutions’, or with the backroom organised coup d’etats, and with the assistance of the radicalised individuals through Soros organisations and some other similar institutions, and some banks. I only hope that Russia and China will be able to bring to the end this vicious cycle.

    es.simjan, you are quite right, but these young and intelligent minds that are being perverted - theey may be young and stupid instead. They do not relize that they are being used. One of them is my nephew actually. Seduced by America scolarship, high on the noble values of market capitalism and democracy, he may be an excellent student but a total fool. Sadly he will grow up to be the instrument of these filthy international businessmen

    well when I see something is said or written by Engdahl, I stops reading it immediately, in order not to frustrate myself even more.....
  • Angus Gallagher
    Soros and the Progressive Alliance reach deep into the heart of the EU. They will take whatever steps they can to crush European identity as a mechanism to eradicating the very concept of sovereign democracy and the nation state.
