These Horrific Photos Should Shock Europe into Taking Action On Refugee crisis.
– By C Robert Gibson
Thursday night, approximately 150 bodies of migrant refugees from Palestine and Syria — many of them children — washed up on the Libyan side of the Mediterranean Sea. The refugees drowned to death after their boat capsized, likely heading to Europe to escape desperate situations in their home countries. The surfacing of these photos comes on the heels of the discovery of 71 migrant refugee corpses — 59 men, 8 women, and 4 children — found in the back of a truck in Austria.
Most of the migrants come from war-torn countries like Syria, Sudan, Libya, and Palestine — all of which have experienced a military campaign either led or sponsored by the US in the last three years. Since 2001, when the War on Terror was declared, the U.S. military’s Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has increased its personnel from 30,000 to 70,000 members. Sub-commands of SOCOM include the Africa-based SOCAFRICA, SOCEUR, and SOCCENT and CENTCOMM, both of which are actively waging secretive military campaigns in the Middle East.
Between 2014 and 2015, Europe saw a 40 percent jump in the number of asylum-seekers attempting to reach Europe by boat, most of whom were fleeing war-torn regions in the Middle East and North Africa. According to the United Nations, more than 300,000 people have attempted crossing the Mediterranean Sea this year, and 2,500 are proclaimed dead or missing. Europe hasn’t seen a refugee crisis of this magnitude since the end of World War II, when roughly half a million displaced Jews liberated from concentration camps had no place to call home.

***WARNING*** Below are the images in question
We posted the ‘original’ post that was circulating on social media regarding this incident onto a couple of our pages on Facebook. Within 48 hours we, along with several other people who had shared various articles on the matter which all included these images above were deleted, seemingly by Facebook censors. There was mixed reaction. Some people believe it is important to see the impact for our own eyes to truly understand what is going on, and we agree. Some though found it distasteful and disrespectful and reported the posts.
We believe it is important to see the images. Remember there are still many people out there who believe these refugees should “go back to where they came from.
In partial defiance of the censors we have created this post for others to share. Spread the message. There is nothing glorifying these deaths and we make no money and seek no money off the work we do here. It’s all for the greater good and all done in our spare time. We want justice for these victims and a change in foreign policy.
It comes to something when images such as the one below are acceptable, but the sight of a dead human is too much to bare.
