*ALMOST TEN THOUSAND MIGRANTS ENTERED GERMANY ON FRIDAY
*COULD SOON RISE TWENTYFOLD
*THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND SYRIANS LEFT CAMPS IN JORDAN AND LEBANON IN TWO DAYS ALONE
*TREK IN RESPONSE TO DRASTIC BENEFIT CUTS IN CAMPS BY UNHCR
*THREE MILLION SYRIANS COULD MOVE FROM CAMPS DUE TO CUTS
*MILLIONS OF AFGHANISTANIS AND LIBYANS ALSO EXPECTED
The stream of migrants into Germany is continuing unabated with 9,300 entering on Friday. But numbers could soon increase tenfold.
Two days ago, 300 000 refugees from UN camps in Jordan and Lebanon began a trek to Europe, specifically Germany, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotsias said.
The 300 000 refugees began their trek as a reaction to a drastic cut in benefits, apparently by the UNCHR.
Benefits families received were reduced from 150 dollars per month to 13 dollars per month. Families are, therefore, now expected to live on just 43 cents a day.
There seem to be 3 million people in camps affected by the benefit change. Under the coersive pressure of the benefit cuts on the one hand, and inducements to head to Europe, on the other, they too could begin the trek to Germany.
The UHNCR website warns that any reduction in the UNHCR budget for Jordan would require the reduction of basic care for refugees. Yet, that is what seems to have happened.
Even given a huge increase in the number of Syrians arriving at camps and a budget shortfall, a cut of more than 90% for refugee families seems unjustified.
The reduction in benefits appears, therefore, to be a measure used to pressure refugees to move. They are being encouraged to go specifically to Europe. This phenomena can best understood as an instrument in the forced displacement of migrants as described in a Harvard University study.
At the same time, a huge increase in Afghan refugees heading for Europe is in progress.
In addition, hundreds of thousands of migrants from the failed state of Libya are expected in Italy, says Info Kopp Verlag.
The news that millions of refugees and migrants could arrive in Europe shortly makes action to strengthen border controls imperative. Germany could see hundreds of thousands of refugees entering or seeking to enter each day very soon.
There is no sign that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is serious about protecting the sea between Greece and Turkey.
