Despite a recent string of deadly terrorist attacks across Europe, Western European leaders are launching infringement proceedings against three Eastern European states in hopes of forcing them to accept tens of thousands of Muslim migrants. Eastern states #Hungary, Poland and the #Czech Republic have refused to risk the entry of terrorists who may be embedded in hoards of poorly vetted immigrants.

Brussels efforts thwarted by renewed terrorism

For its part, Western governments, despite recent bloody assaults by Muslim terrorists against France and Britain, are trying to find homes in Europe for 160,000 migrants fleeing Syria and other Middle Eastern hot spots.

The announced litigation against the three Eastern European countries highlights the widening rift between East and West factions when it comes to the forced settlement of Muslims within the EU. At the same time, leaders of Western European governments are having great difficulty convincing their own people that the resettlement of Muslims in their countries is a good idea.

No-go zones becoming the norm in Europe

No-go zones that even police fear to patrol have developed in France, Germany, Greece and inside the borders of many other EU countries. Meanwhile, terrorists have taken to mowing down Europeans with trucks and vehicles, conducting public stabbings and by detonating suicide vests in crowded venues. Unlike sovereign states, countries that belong to the EU are subject to fines and other sanctions levied by #Brussels when they ignore orders from the European Commission.

Currently, people are permitted to travel within the European Union without the need for passports and other forms of identification. However, the once popular unification of European states has fallen out of favor as struggling economies must be bailed out by wealthier nations and because the potential for a terrorist attack has grown significantly in recent years.

Tensions high in migrant camps

The EU has only managed to relocate about 21,000 migrants of the 160,000 targeted; many live in makeshift migrant camps where tensions run high and protests are often violent. Disagreements between EU members over what to do about the massive influx of migrants fleeing the bloody siege in Syria and elsewhere are likely to increase as the Middle East is rocked by mini wars and fighting factions. For his part, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said he would not give in to blackmail from Brussels.

The migrant issue, as well as a succession of bailouts for struggling EU nations, is to blame for the BREXIT movement which saw Great Britain leave the EU last year. Currently, Orban’s government is leading the Eastern resistance and continues to publicly assail Brussels for imposing its policies and ideals on EU states. Meanwhile, Western EU governments fear that another spate of terrorist attacks or the need for another financial bailout could see the BREXIT movement spill over.
