Even with all these risks and hardships they keep coming...  I think the "driver" which is sending them on the journey is even more fierce and unrelenting.  Most of these leave their mothers ad wives behind.  These family members are used as a catalyst to "motivate" these spreaders of Islam to go do what they have to in Europe and soon America.  I will say it again, laws in countries are being changed in order ot facilitate this very evil plan.  Karma (or is it Murphy) does not like the plan - or so it seems..



Images released by the Italian navy have captured the moment a heavily overcrowded boat overturned in a shipwreck off Libya which left at least five people dead.

The blue fishing vessel, its deck heaving with people, tipped over on Wednesday after the refugees and migrants rushed to one side on spotting a rescue ship.

Those on the boat, many of them men, some already wearing orange life jackets as a precaution, were captured in rare photographs as they clung to the boat's rails or each other, or dropped into the sea.

Some are seen hanging on to the starboard edge by their fingertips as the trawler rolls, while others try to balance on the rim.

Pictures taken seconds later show the waters around the boat filled with people trying to get away from the vessel which, now overturned, begins to sink, with four people still perched on its upturned hull.

The navy said its Bettica patrol boat had spotted "a boat in precarious conditions off the coast of Libya with numerous migrants aboard" but the trawler overturned shortly afterwards "due to overcrowding" <Snip>


According to the International Organisation for Migration, more than 1 370 people have lost their lives so far this year trying to make the crossing to Europe.

The latest arrivals bring the number of people rescued and transferred to Italy since the start of the year to nearly 40 000 following the rescue of more than 6 000 since Monday, according to figures collated by the UN's refugee agency (UNHCR) and the coastguard.

The overwhelming majority of those arriving in Italy so far this year have been from sub-Saharan Africa.
