Editor’s Note: This article was generously contributed by Dan Sullivan who comes to us from his own blog, survivalsullivan.com. Dan talks about a situation that is impacting the world right now to varying degrees based upon your location. The consequences of the continuous waves of migrants is yet to be fully seen, but only a fool would argue that peace and love and happiness will be the result. If you live in an area where migrants are or will be flooding in, you could be forced to take precautions. To stay safe, you might need some of the tips on how to deal with migrants Dan shares below.


 

Despite the fact that winter is coming, Middle Eastern refugees are still coming into Europe in very large numbers as I’m writing this. There’s no doubt that the Old Continent will see permanent changes as far as demographics are concerned and, given that Muslim families are more fertile than Christians and atheists, we will see a veritable clash of civilizations in the coming 20 years.

If you’re in Europe, this article is probably one of the most important ones you’ve read this year. If you’re in the United States, you still have to worry since many of these refugees might be redirected to a camp near you and who knows how the immigration policies will change in the near future. We all need to learn to protect ourselves from this and we can’t do it unless we understand what’s going on and then prepare accordingly.

Personal Security

Let’s get right into the meat of the problem and talk about the most important aspect of dealing with migrants and refugees: safety and security. While I’m sure many of them are nice guys, the numerous incidents happening in Greece, Serbia, Hungary and Germany speak for themselves: rape, prostitution, fights and public humiliation show us that these people will have a hard time accepting our western values.

Before talking to a refugee (or anyone looking suspicious, for that matter), instead of assuming they’re nice, focus on protecting yourself in case they start using more than just words. Consider carrying some of these with you at all times:

In addition, consider taking self-defense lessons because you may not have time to go for your gun or it may not be in your vicinity. There are plenty of martial arts out there that you can learn such as Krav Maga, for instance.

MigrantCrisis2
If you don’t like receiving refugees in your town, you can leave!

Mobility

“If you don’t like receiving refugees in your town, you can leave!” That’s what a German mayor told his citizens. We’re looking at an absurd situation where small towns are forced to almost double in size simply by receiving these migrants. (source)

I’m sorry to say but you might have to leave your town if you want to continue living in peace. If the mayor has the last word and he or she is backed by law enforcement and the Government… you might not have a choice.

Being willing and ready to move at a moment’s notice assumes that:

Of course, if the immigration process will happen in your town the way it’s happening in these German towns right now, you’ll have plenty of time to make a decision, but you just never know how bad things will get once these people start rioting.

MigrantCrisis1

Survival Bags

Have a bug out bag, have an EDC, have a get home bag, have a car bug out bag. In essence, these are all survival bags and you don’t need all of them, just the ones that make sense for your unique situation.

Prepare For a Job Loss

The more people arrive in your town, the more likely it is you’ll lose your job. They’ll be willing to work for a lot less than you are or they might be helped by the Government to integrate themselves faster.

Do Your Due Diligence

A home security system could give your family precious seconds to defend your home.

Since people with little or no income are more likely to loot and attack wealthier citizens, it’s pretty much a given that the crime rate in your city will increase.

I’m not going to post videos of immigrants fighting with each-other. I’m also not going to talk too much about the woman who was raped while trying to help these people (source). Instead, I’m going to show you what to do to protect yourself, your spouse and your kids. I’m sure you know these things but they’re definitely worth remembering:

  • always keep your doors and windows locked (including garage doors and basement windows),
  • never walk alone at night on dark alleys and avoid bad neighborhoods at all costs,
  • while driving, keep all your doors and windows locked, especially when you stop at a red light,
  • install an alarm system
  • and build or designate a safe room.

Be Flexible

No, I’m not saying you need to embrace Allah or that you should accept the refugees for what they are. What I’m saying is you have to be smart, even to outsmart them. For example, growing a beard might get some Muslims to assume you’re one of them and this might get you out of trouble.

Many of them will do anything to make money and a good portion of them will do it legally. It wouldn’t hurt to at least learn about business. You might find an opportunity to make more money than you are right now at your current job. You don’t have to be 100% negative about things, sometimes there’s opportunity right were you least expect it and all you have to do is find it.

Final Word

Good luck, because, no matter how well you prepare, you’re gonna need it.

I’ll be blunt, pretty worthless article. Other than emphasizing that immigrants are inherently bad, I’m not sure the author told us anything new. Have EDC, BOB and the other Prepper 101 stuff. Be careful at night, lock your doors, take karate classes, the usual hateful spew. I’m sorry, but none of the threats mentioned here are any different than what you’ll encounter if you’re rural neighbor decides to put is a slum trailer-court next door to you. If you don’t like different ethnic groups then please just say so, rather than this thinly concealed racist/Islamophobic stuff. I love PJ’s how-to… Read more »

It’s not Islamaphobia, if they really are trying to kill you. And how are we to know the difference? Why do you virtually never hear of a “moderate” Muslim backlash to extremism? I’ll tell you why, because they’re either afraid or they secretly believe the same way. Either way, they’re complicit. And yet it’s our fault for be “Islamaphobic”.

I agree this doesn’t say anything new to the seasoned prepper but let’s not forget there are plenty of newbies out there. This isn’t mainly an “opinion article”, if that were that case, I can assure you I would have used stronger verbiage. I’m revealing a threat which no one can ignore. Just because they are people that doesn’t mean I have to like some of them so there, I said it. On the other hand I’ve seen and met plenty of Muslims that were nice so I really don’t see your point.

Perhaps if you gave specific info as to how to thwart off a dog attack, no. But if you simply said that dogs were breeding faster than humans, that dogs from other countries were migrating and raping/murdering other (local) dogs with no exceptions, while refusing to adapt to the expected cultural customs of our dogs, then I would probably accuse you of disliking a lot of dogs from other places without really providing any useful advice. The author is a transparent racist or Islamophobe. I have my opinions on these matters like everyone else, but TPJ is not an opinion… Read more »

Second, if you think disliking rapists is worse than being one, please go ahead and call me a racist but not before proving that “no exceptions” thing you mentioned. if I were one, then I would have shown I’m racist BEFORE the migrant crisis.

Since I don’t know you, I suppose that it was wrong of me to accuse you of racism based on just one article. I am 4th generation American and so I am fairly supportive of a fair immigration policy, otherwise I would be a hypocrite. My great-grandfather, who died only 12 years ago, was born in a foreign country. But my original point was, this was not much of a how-to article. As far as violent crime goes, if you pull up an average rural American newspaper you will find a front page article about some young white thug who… Read more »

Have you seen the video of those Muslims praying in Paris in the middle of the day, blocking the streets? There’s more to all of this than just raping and looting. I agree that this isn’t much of a how to article for someone who already knows about these things but this might very well help some of those German folks, for instance, who are forced… Read more »

Generally people in rural America don’t gang rape females, or cut people’s heads off and post it on YouTube. If the author of an article, wishes to voice their beliefs all the power to them. That is what we call the First Amendment, and I did not see anything calling for Jihad against Haji’s in the article. The fact that most of these refugees are fighting age males, has not been lost on most people who pay attention. Reading an article and calling somebody a bigot, is pretty lame. It is about the same as me calling you an Uber… Read more »

Again, if you don’t believe that white American thugs rape, murder and rob, pick up a rural newspaper from about anywhere in this country and read the front page. I might concede to you about the head cutting on You tube bit, but if you think whites don’t commit atrocities (ever heard of Adam Lanza?), you are suffering from selective perception.

I live in flyover country, violent crime occurs here but not very often. Society will not condone or tolerate it.

I am an atheist, I defend no religion. No recent murders committed within 100 miles of your town by whites? Hard to believe, give me the name of the town and I’ll find some quick on google.I don’t defend islam and actually find it pretty scary, just like Christianity. I live in a small town in SW Missouri and we have whites shooting/robbing others on a weekly basis. Most of the mass shooters in the last 15 years were white guys. I dare you to argue that one with me.

100 miles would put Denver in your list of places to search, for violent crime. The last two murders we had, were when two folks were killed in a botched robbery of a coin shop. That was during Frontier days. I live in the state that has more firearms per capita then any other, so we are pretty laid back. It sounds like you live in a shit hole.

LWJ, a very cursory examination of the Colorado Dept of Corrections website revealed that there are currently 676 Colorado citizens (men) serving a Life without parole sentence, and another 212 serving 40 years with parole eligibility. Unfortunately it’s not broke down by county, but I feel safe in betting that these lads are not incarcerated this long for missing child support payments. Approximately 57% of your state’s prison population happens to be white. These numbers are pretty consistent with my state and other mid-west states I am familiar with. Don’t believe me? It’s a public website. Maybe you should learn… Read more »

Before talking to a refugee (or anyone looking suspicious, for that matter), instead of assuming they’re nice, focus on protecting yourself in case they start using more than just words. Consider carrying some of these with you at all times:
a pocket folding knife
a stun gun
pepper spray
or even a handgun.
ALL mainly illegal in much of Europe.

Dan F. Sullivan
Guest

Pepper spray should be legal and look into alternative survival items. I know for a fact because I live in Europe. 🙂 By the way, I saw a clip where this self-defense instructor showed that even a simple lollipop can be used to cause damage to an attacker. Great stuff.

Most of the 1 million so far arriving in Europe are Muslim, most are NOT Syrian refugees, the assorted governments are dumping them in poorer areas of their countries often that already have high immigrant or minority communities. Imagine moving much of inner city Detroit to Inner City Chicago in one go. The VAST majority are young men of military age, many are committing violent sexual offences within days of arrival, one just got arrested in London for 11 attacks in 2 weeks. They do like to groom young white girls as young as nine years old to be passed… Read more »

Thank you for the comments Heff. This one has gotten more negative responses than I have seen in a while but I’ll keep trying to bring articles to the conversation.

Hi Heff,

As I just replied to another reader, I wrote this with newbies in mind. If you go over to my site you’ll see that most of our articles are pretty advanced and I even had someone telling me they’re too complicated for them. If you have specific advice you’d like to add that you consider to be more advanced, feel free to do so.

I’ve been reading American Exodus recently. Good book with some interesting ideas. Given it is likely millions of USA citizens might have to migrate soon I’d suggest you all start being a bit nicer. Karma. On balance I’d rather a horde of people didn’t show up in Canada but if they do, then they do. Labelling them all as rapists and thugs is a gross distortion. Demanding they go back is just not realistic. How comes your survival plans don’t include housing and feeding some strangers? Mine do. Agricultural workers will be very welcome

John

On the other hand Huples, Americans are not as a society bent towards violent acts of rape, murser, pillaging, looting, arson, mutilation, etc. And yet, those that are being forced upon us do have those tendencies as a culture.
If you knew that the population of your town (or in some cases more than double that population) was going to be suddenly added to that same location, and that there were tendencies toward the aforementioned violent acts, can you honestly claim to not be vocally opposed?…No I didn’t think you could either.

Hi John,

Sorry Huples, but I have seen it first hand. From an imam performing female circumcision with a broken piece of flass, to people left dead in the streets for following the wrong form of islam, the delusional people are the ones saying that there isn’t something wrong with that mindset. And the only thing they truely do respect is force. The ones saying that we have to be flexible and accepting of acts aforementioned are in danger of being the first to be killed. By the ones that are “misunderstood.”

Like I said we won’t agree here. I agree some of them are sick but I’d say that’s true for any culture. I’m much more concerned with Canadians and Americans showing up than blood thirsty towel heads screaming Allah. As I said any decent plan needs to account for these hoards and bullets alone won’t cut it. For example can you scale up farming and put some of them to work for food? Can you provide basic shelter for those workers? Being an armed island in the middle of a starving hoard just won’t work. The alternative is to run… Read more »

So, for continuing this conversation in a way that ensures I don’t miss points of conversation, I will follow with a numbered point system. 1. The difference between their Muslim culture and our Western culture is that we don’t find raping a woman who is alone to be acceptable. They do, and have said so many times, and done so many more. This is just an example, but there are many variations of stories like this. Murder, rape, looting, etc that as a culture is acceptable to them. Ask a veteran, and they will tell you of these things, since… Read more »

So, as most are saying I really didn’t think much of the article. First, it was rather short, and it didn’t cover very many points. This may be just a small difference between The Journal, and the way that Mr Sullivan writes. As such I will pass this by, and chalk it up to inevitable differences. However, I am not accepting of several view points that the author, directly or indirectly espouses. First, I do firmly believe that the immigration policy should directly (via vote by the populous) be administered by the citiens of a place. In this case, the… Read more »

Dear Mr Sullivan, I believe you have hot the nail on the head twice of why a lot of people are having problems with your piece. You tried to be moderate. I understand that no matter what you post, you are probably going to catch a lot of flack. So, why not just tell it like it is? Moderate just means you catch flack from both sides. he truth is, a lot of them not only don’t want to integrate, they want us to assimilate into them, and will use force to attempt this conversion. The second is the wording… Read more »

Dan F. Sullivan

Dan F. Sullivan

Hi John, The reason I wanted to be moderate is because this is a prepping site first and foremost. It’s the nature of the article to focus on the how to and not the why (whether you agree or disagree with my advice, that’s another story). As to your second point, I agree that many of them are violent but saying that the vast majority of them is, is just speculation. Out of the 1.6 billion Muslims, you have 168 million in Bangladesh (90% are Muslim), 255 million in Indonesia (out of which 87% are Muslim), around 5 million in… Read more »

I get that it is a prepper site, not a political one. Unfortunately for the “moderate” stand point it’s also part of prepping to know what to look out for. Dangers, pitfalls, short commings, etc. Things to be aware of that can directly impact our lives in detrimental, or beneficial, ways. As to my second point, unfortunately, it is not speculation. When many countries have populations that have 75% or greater support for Sharia Law, that is most. Not many. MOST. As for the countries you named, let me point out that Indonesia is having a HUGE problem with their… Read more »

Hi John,
Thanks for those stats. I’m not by any means trying to convince people to relax because most Muslims may or may not be peaceful, that’s why I wrote this article (especially after what happened last night in Paris).

Regarding my contradiction, when I said most are peaceful I was referring to all MUSLIMS across the globe as a whole while when I said most are violent I was referring to a very specific subset, the MIGRANTS that recently came into Europe.

John
Guest
John

The problem with that context is that the migrants come from somewhere. Those somewhere’s are across the world. So if the migrants are violent (as we can clearly see from events in France, Germany, Sweden, etc) then the evidence of that violence points towards the homelands they are from being violent and accepting that as customary traditional reactions to blasphemy, infidels, etc. Read the Quran and see what I mean.
So, you still contradict yourself. And you still ALSO are asking us to blind ourselves to the danger, when not being honest about that danger in your article.

Dan F. Sullivan
Guest
Dan F. Sullivan

There are 3 flaws in your logic.

#1. The migrants are not representative from all countries. They come from war-torn regions such as Syrian, Iraq etc. I’ve never heard about migrants from Indonesia joining this particular flock.

#2. Based on your logic, most Americans are violent because of all the police brutality cases.

#3. If my goal was to blind everyone to the danger, I wouldn’t have written an article on how to protect from it.

John
Guest

1. We do have migrants from all across the world. The most recent cases are well advertised as being from Syria and Iraq because there was a threat of an invasion before the migrant crisis. If you think we don’t have migrants from many places please look at the census records. 2. No. Most of the police brutality cases went to Grand Jury and the Grand Jury refused to indict, which means there was no reason to move forward with charges. Innocent until proven guilty. Ergo, the police brutality cases more point toward there not being violence as opposed to… Read more »
