Skip to comments.When Syria Came to Fresno: Refugees Test Limits of Outstretched Hand

FRESNO, Calif. The police responded to a call about a loud party on East San Ramon Avenue, but it wasnt just any party: A sheep was reportedly being slaughtered in a backyard.
Muslim refugees were unaware that slaughtering sheep is not allowed in the city, the police wrote afterward in their report, which also stated that those involved were advised to clean up the blood and mess and warned that in the future they could be cited. The animal, actually a goat, was killed by a Syrian refugee who later skinned, roasted and shared it with his Syrian neighbors in the apartment complex where they all live.
Refugees are typically placed in towns and cities such as Buffalo, N.Y.; Boise, Idaho; and Fayetteville, Ark., where resettlement agencies ease their transition to life in a new country. But they are free to move about the country like anybody else, and they sometimes land in places like Fresno that are not exactly prepared for their arrival.
Since late 2016, more than 200 Syrian refugees originally settled elsewhere in the United States have made a fresh start in Fresno, the largest city in Californias agricultural belt. They have been drawn there mainly by cheap housing.
But behind the low rent is a city struggling with high poverty and unemployment, making it more difficult for the refugees to secure jobs. And Fresno has no federally funded agency to help them find work, learn basics like bus routes and understand United States culture and rules, like with the practice of animal slaughter. Syrian children turned up unexpectedly at Ahwahnee Middle School, needing vaccinations, trauma counseling, English-language instruction and academic support ... It was a shock at first, said Jose Guzman, the principal. We never had to teach students who speak Arabic.

Word traveled fast to Turlock and elsewhere that rent in Fresno was a relative bargain about $450 a month for a two-bedroom unit in some places
Helping one or two families, thats easy, said Reza Nekumanesh, director of the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno. But soon, one family after another was arriving from San Diego, out of state.
They didnt realize rent is low here for a reason, he said.
Sacrifices made to Ba’al....
A few slivers of the flesh were cast into the flames as the “portion” for Ba’al, the rest was enjoyed by the participants and the Imam, who got first choice of the portions remaining.
But everybody feasts.
The Muslims are everywhere.
How many are really here ?
Not the Obama media figures which are lies.
This is the nightmare that Trump admin needs to stop now ..
This are the 13 century dangerous animals being rammed into this country .
All cultures are alike!
Enjoy it, California!
I bet those same amateur butchers would be squealing to the police if their next door neighbor had a pig roast.
Woman invites Sudanese refugee to live in her home, months later he calls her a heartless racist
Fresno had a group of muslims in the nineties who were training and arming the compound they had in the Sierras
That woman was lucky she wasn’t robbed, raped or killed. And I’m not being racist, as I wouldn’t take any strange person that needed help into my home. I might help them any other way, but I have to think about my own safety.
thank God they didn’t sell the goat’s raw milk.
good point .
Just wait. Soon they'll be demanding we teach them IN Arabic.
Sounds like a good idea to me.
Yep, we used to sell raw goat milk when I was a kid. Unfortunately I was the one that had to milk the goats. And back then, it wasn’t unusual to see a sheep or goat or pig barbecue, but now these people need to realize they ha e to follow the same rules as everyone else.
The load on the school systems and everything else is not fair to our own citizens.
Just like Spanish speaking aliens. They know we’re a bunch of suckers.
Couldn’t agree more.
The average Paki or Somali has an IQ of 65 or less and has been inbred for centuries.
We don’t need the cultural or genetic pollution.
Not to mention the religion is demonic.
Ignorance of the law is always an excuse for Muslim pigs.
These jerks forget Tours, Charles Martel, and the 1350’s. Look at France now. Their police do not dare to go in Muslim areas in Paris and almost every other city in the damn country.
Wake up America as 22 states or more have Muslim Jihad training camps. Throw these bums OUT NOW.
