Video: The EU's Failed Strategy in the African Migration Crisis_ Global Implications

(Institute for Contemporary Affairs-Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs) Dore Gold - Most of the immigrants to Europe coming through Libya are from African states. There have been well-documented reports about human rights abuses in all of the Libyan detention centers. An airstrike in July killed 44 migrants and wounded 130 at the Tajoura detention center in Libya. The movement of African migrants to Europe is not a short-term challenge that can be dealt with by building prison camps. The population of Africa is expected to grow substantially in the next century. What is needed is to address the factors pushing the migrants out of their countries toward Europe, because those numbers will inevitably rise. The strategy required must be based on making the African states that are sending their populations toward Europe more hospitable. These countries will require clean water, adequate food production, and the latest technologies in animal husbandry. Their armed forces must be trained and directed to neutralize the terror groups making life impossible in parts of Africa. The writer is President of the Jerusalem Center.
