150 North Africans missing as boat capsizes
Thing is that the Gaddafis were working with the Italians to stem the flow of immigrants ~ particularly to smaller islands ~ which quickly become overwhelmed ~ as well as the Italian coast line. High powered boats ~ were used by both sides to intercept these little dinghies and return people to the African coast. At times there were 700 a week landing in Malta or between Malta and Italy.
The dream of most North African youths are to come to Europe ~ there is this dream that there is a never ending supply of resources. But it is the southern countries in Europe ~ who are getting the most immigrants in Europe ~ fair the worst economically.
Most if they went to school at all would have spent half the week or more learning about Islam ~ everybody can't be an Imam ~ they must put this religion into a proper context.
More than 150 illegal migrants went missing in Italy after a ship with 200 refugees from North Africa capsized off Lampedusa Island.
47 people were rescued.
Lampedusa has seen an influx of migrants following unrest in a number of North African countries in recent months.
Most refugees come from Tunisia and Libya.
