The Invasion of Europe

There is a joke about how to save a tax collector from drowning.

I won't repeat the punch line lest someone use it as an excuse to throw me in the Gulag.

However, it seems to me that the punch line applies equally to invaders crossing the Mediterranean from Africa.

There's a simple way to keep the invaders from drowning, and to discourage others from following them. It's not funny, and not the kind of thing that civilized people want to do. But we can either keep our civilization or let the invaders destroy it. We cannot repel barbarians with sweet words.
