Holidaymakers in Sicily rallied together on Thursday to save 160 boat migrants, by creating a human chain into the sea.

A swimmer alerted the coast guard to the boat which arrived at the shore of Morghella beach, Syracuse, La Repubblica reported.

A number of pregnant women and around 50 young children were on board, the newspaper said.

While the coast guard came to the rescue, beachgoers waded into the water and formed a human chain to help the migrants ashore.

A video (below) shows the new arrivals climbing into a rescue boat, before locals help them through the waves.

The same day Italy’s interior minister, Angelino Alfano, said that nearly 9,000 migrants had arrived in Italy between July 1st and August 10th this year.

More than 24,000 migrants arrived on Italy’s shores during 2012, the minister said on Thursday.

Generally the North-Western Europeans who make up most the tourists to the European Mediterranean and have a much more vigorous recent history of imperialism could care less. It would be better for them in many ways for Italy to be run over by Mahometans, it would be a much more impoverished country even than the present machinations of Germany's, Fourth Reich dominated European Union. So the tourists from Germany, UK, Netherlands, et al. could actually visit as tourists for lower prices. It is not like the modern tourist cares about the natives, their culture and predicaments. They just want to be pampered and act as the "sovereign" by saving enough to live as a full-time consumer for a few weeks or a month or two. They can do that much cheaper if Italy was full of Maghrebian Arabs and not Italians...

Let's help the Muslims invade Italy and do away with ourselves! Hooray! Things have to get much darker (like hunger, loss of electrical power for days, huge arson fires, fear of going out at night) before these people will wake up to what Islam is doing to their country.
