The UN Migration Agency/International Organization for Migration (IOM) has hailed the arrival of its “first” planeload of 154 Somali migrants to Germany, along with dozens of Syrians transported to Romania using European Union funds.
The IOM, which promotes mass migration as “inevitable, desirable, [and] necessary” , announced the arrival of “its first international charter flight” of 154 Somalis from Ethiopia to Germany — with “An additional 220 refugees [to] depart for Germany on a second IOM-chartered flight in mid-November” — in an official press release .
“We are happy that refugees enjoyed this facilitated charter flight from departure to destination, with no hassles faced,” commented Milun Jovanovic, IOM Operations Officer in Ethiopia, in the press release, which went on to boast: “For the past 15 year , IOM Ethiopia has been involved in relocating refugees to more than 16 countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Norway and the European Union [sic] through resettlement, family reunification [chain migration ] and humanitarian admission programmes.”

“The people who arrived today have been through the worst and now have a chance at rebuilding their lives in peace,” claimed Mircea Mocanu, Head of IOM’s office in Romania.
