The invasion of Europe by Muslim migrants continues to escalate. Italy has been on the verge of collapse in trying to cope with the “exodus from Libya to the Italian coast.” Austria is now prepared to fight back by imposing border checks and deploying soldiers “on its frontier with Italy if the influx of migrants across the Mediterranean does not slow.”
