DAILYKENN.com -- Four nations in Europe are discussing plans to blockade Islamic insurgents pouring into the region.
Representatives from Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland met February 15, 2016 in Prague. Also attending the summit were representatives from Bulgaria and Macedonia.
The four nations are sometimes referred to as the Visegrad group. The moniker originated in 1991 when representatives of the nations met at a small castle in Visegrád, Hungary.
Their current objective is to seal Balkan nation borders with Greece.
Angela Merkel's government representatives in Germany objected to the plan, claiming it could undermine its own approach to the crisis. Merkel's approach to the crisis is to flood Europe with people groups from Muslim and sub-Saharan African nations.
The crisis in the Middle East has existed for 1,400 years.

Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland are to meet today to discuss creating a blockade to stop the influx of migrants arriving from Greece.
Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said the countries – known collectively as the Visegrad group – were ready to help Balkan countries seal their borders.
The leaders of Bulgaria and Macedonia will also attend the meeting in Prague.
Mr Sobotka said he would also discuss the plans with the Greek foreign minister tomorrow, ahead of a summit of European leaders at the end of the week.
Apart from Hungary, central European countries have so far not seen significant numbers of migrants.
But they fear that could change if Europe's external borders stay porous, or if Germany – the main destination – were to close its own borders.
Germany has raised objections to the plan, saying that sealing Balkan borders with Greece could undermine its own approach to the crisis.
