EU actions fit the definition of genocide as described by the term's creator, Raphael Lemkin: "Genocide does not necessarily mean
the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass
killings of all members of a nation.
It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups with the aim of annihilating the groups
themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of
culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the
economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of
personal security, liberty,
health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals
belonging to such groups."...
June 13, 2017, "EU Sues Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic For Not Taking Enough Muslim Refugees," Daily Caller, Jacob Bojesson, Foreign Correspondent
"The European Union launched legal action Tuesday against Poland,
Hungary and the Czech Republic over their refusal to take refugees.
The case stems from a decision to relocate 160,000 migrants
proportionally across the EU. Hungary and Poland have refused to take a
single refugee under the plan while the Czech Republic let in 12.
EU is now launching infringement procedures, arguing the three countries are violating their obligations as member states.
“Regrettably, despite…repeated calls, the Czech
Republic, Hungary and Poland, in breach of their legal obligations
stemming … and their commitments to Greece, Italy and other member
states, have not yet taken the necessary action,” the European
Commission said in a statement. “Against this background…the Commission has decided to launch infringement procedures against these three Member States.”
The European Court of Justice will decide whether the countries
failed to meet their obligations. A financial penalty may be imposed if
the countries continue to refuse the quotas after a ruling in favor of
Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said his country has no intention to reverse its immigration policies any time soon.
“With regard to the worsened security situation in Europe and
dysfunctionality of the quota system, it will not participate in it,” Sobotka said after EU’s announcement, according to Reuters."
