  • No Christians: All 132 Syrian Refugees Admitted to U.S. Since Paris Attacks Are Sunni Muslims

    CNS news ^ | November 30, 2015 | Patrick Goodenough
    Since the Paris terror attacks on November 13, the State Department has admitted 132 Syrian refugees into the United States, and all 132 are Sunni Muslims. No Christian, Druze, Shi'ite, Alawite, or member of any other religious minority in Syria has been admitted over that period, according to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center. The majority of the 132 Syrian refugees permitted to resettle in the U.S. since November 13 (72) are male, the minority female (60). Of the 132 total, 39 (29.5 percent) have been men between the ages of 14 and 50. Another 53 (40 percent)...

    Thousands of volunteers for the Red Cross in the Netherlands say they are not prepared to help refugees, according to a confidential report in the hands of broadcaster Nos. The organisation carried out a survey of 1,300 of its 30,000 volunteers and found around one in five was unwilling to work with asylum seekers. The reasons given ranged from ‘I’d rather see our borders closed’ to ‘there is nothing for them here’, while others said most refugees are after an easy life. The Red Cross is holding a meeting with officials from all 25 districts on December 15 in an...

    If you were on the fence about whether or not accepting Syrian refugees en masse into America was a bad idea, this should convince you to hop on over. According to German officials, radical Islamic terrorists are recruiting refugees. From TheBlaze: The Wall Street Journal is reporting that German homegrown radical Islamists are trying to recruit arriving refugees by offering them items and services they desperately need as they escape the war-torn region: food, shelter, language interpretation, copies of the Koran and traditional Muslim clothing. "They start by saying, 'We will help you live your faith,'" Torsten Voss of Germany's...

    If Saudi Arabia won’t take in Syrian refugees, why should the United States? In recent weeks, we have heard a whole lot from Barack Obama about our “moral obligation” to take in refugees from Syria. Well, if there is a “moral obligation” to help these refugees, then why aren’t more wealthy Islamic nations stepping up to the plate? According to Amnesty International, since the beginning of the Syrian civil war Saudi Arabia has not accepted a single Syrian refugee. Neither has Kuwait. Neither has Qatar. Neither has the United Arab Emirates. These nations are absolutely swimming in money, and yet...

    Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu is one happy man. The reason is that the European Union is set to give in to every single one of his country's demands in order to do something about the refugee crisis. The EU wants Turkey to stem the refugee flow into Europe by taking care of them in Turkey. In return, Turkey wants 3 billion euros (around $3.2 billion US) in extra aid, visa-free traveling for Turks in EU-countries, and a re-launch of EU-accession talks. In other words: Turkey demands fast-track membership: "Today is a historic day in our accession process to the...

Ricketts has joined a host of other governors asking the administration not to permit Syrian refugees into the United States ("Ricketts joins governors' letter to Obama on Syrian refugees," Nov. 20). A quotation from Ricketts letter said that “Nebraska is a welcoming place for families seeking a home to live, work, and raise a family...” Apparently his words are only true for people of European ethnic descent, like myself.

    Eastern Europe is leading the way to protect the continent against colonizers from Islamic lands. Hungary is in the forefront, having erected a fence that is patrolled around the clock by Hungarian police and military. There is also support along the border from Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Slovakia as these nations partner together to protect themselves. In this video, the mayor of Assothalom (a rural town in Hungary situated along the southern border shared with Serbia) speaks about border security. And he does not mince his words. He acknowledges that all of Europe must be protected and defended or everyone...

    In the aftermath of last week's dramatic events which have seen Turkey make a unilateral breach of NATO's unwritten rules of engagement by taking down a Russian jet, coupled with an assault on civil right and expression of speech when two journalists were arrested for exposing Turkish arms smuggling to Syria, culminating with the assassination of a prominent enemy of the state on live TV, one would expect that the "democratic, humanistic" western countries would at least issue a harsh condemnation of Erdogan's behavior. That won't happen: instead, the European Union will pay Turkey $3.2 billion to help it stop...

    President Obama has already started implementing his plan to resettle 10,000 Syrian refugees to America. However, given that some of the terrorists who attacked Paris snuck into Europe using fake passports pretending to be Syrian refugees, coupled with several attempts by Syrian nationals to illegally cross our borders, most Americans are worried about the refugee policy and have called for it to be paused. In response, President Obama has dug in his heels. He harshly criticizes opponents of his plan and dismisses anyone and any facts that run counter to his narrative — facts such as: 1. Many aren’t from...

    In the wake of the terror attacks in Paris, politicians and others are calling for a ban — or at least a delay — on the influx of refugees to the United States. Republican presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush have called on the U.S. to accept only Christian Syrian refugees, not Muslims. Presidential candidate Donald Trump goes one step further, saying he would accept none. Dr. Ahmad Jaber, president of the Arab-American Association of New York and Dawood Mosque, calls such rhetoric unconstitutional. "How dare you say you are not welcoming refugees," Jaber said.

Hans-Georg Maasen, a federal police chief, said fighters from the Islamic State have come from the battlefields of Syria and Iraq and are "blending in with the migrants and are planning 'combat missions' in Europe," the Daily Mail reported.

The Raad van State or Council of State, which reviews the legality of government decisions, found that the new policy of conservative Prime Minister Mark Rutte does not contravene the European Convention on Human Rights.A rejected asylum seeker...

However, Islam claims that it is not like Judaism and Christianity. Consider this teaching of Islam: "Asserting one's religion does not mean that you simply leave people to worship whatever they please without comment, like the Christians and the Jews do. It means that you must clearly and plainly disapprove of what they worship, and show enmity towards the disbelievers; failing this there is no assertion of Islam."

    It has now been confirmed: It is simply impossible to sufficiently vet the Muslim migrants entering our nation. Intelligence officials have said it. The Greek government has said it. And now a New York City Syrian community leader has this to say about Barack Obama' ’s claim that it is possible to distinguish between terrorists and other migrants: "Are you out of your mind?"

    Speaking on the Senate floor on November 19, Senator Jeff Sessions (shown, R-Ala.) strongly condemned President Obama's request for funding for refugee resettlement, basing his opposition on both economic and security threats found in the president's plan. In his speech, Sessions outlined the reasons behind his opposition to more federal spending for refugee resettlement: Refugees are among the most costly immigration program for several reasons. Refugees are instantly eligible for federal welfare and entitlements. They are low-skilled and frequently lack any kind of formal education. There is a great cost involved - about $6.5 billion lifetime cost per each 10,000...
  • Video: Trump Spokeswoman Clarifies Position on 'Muslim Database' (Katrina Pierson is excellent)

    As is the case with every Trump firestorm, the 'Muslim database' kerfuffle has already been supplanted by several new controversies. Nevertheless, a core question from last week's flare-up has remained unresolved: Was Trump open to a national registry for all Muslims in America, or just the refugees? The campaign's ambiguity on this point spilled over into this week's news cycle, when Trump again appeared to endorse the concept of a broader database on ABC's Sunday morning chat show. The trouble is that whenever Trump has been asked about this issue, he's responded by (a) correctly noting that it was originally...

    As the United States prepares to celebrate Thanksgiving - a holiday that American legend traces back to a dinner between Native Americans and bedraggled, immigrant pilgrims - some of the country's top political leaders are calling to block the arrival of Syrian refugees, would-be immigrants fleeing chaos and possible death in the Middle East, a situation some think the U.S. may have helped create. In the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris terrorist attacks, newly elected U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said the U.S. government needs to "balance our compassion and our safety," when it comes to processing refugees...
  • Obama welcomes an Islamist Trojan horse: Consider who is selecting our refugees

    “President Obama is a threat to our country,” Donald Trump told me in a recent interview. He’s right. Mr. Obama now poses a clear and present danger to America. His stubborn insistence on resettling so-called “refugees” from Syria threatens to Balkanize our country and subvert it from within. The president is willing to potentially sacrifice countless Americans on the altar of liberal multiculturalism. He is gambling with our lives.

    As the United States debates how to properly vet 10,000 Syrian refugees expected to resettle here, employees with Samaritan’s Purse are stationed on the frontlines in Greece, working to be a “face of compassion” for refugees fleeing war and terror. Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs and government relations for Samaritan’s Purse, spent a week in Greece, where the Christian organization has deployed employees and contractors to the region to assist scores of refugees flowing into the country, with hopes of continuing deeper into Europe. There, the group’s workers meet refugees arriving by rubber rafts on Greek islands and provide...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions is out with a list of 15 vetted refugees who quickly joined jihad plots to attack the United States. He’s spotlighting the refugees-turned-jihadis because he’s trying to prod GOP leaders into halting Congress’ normal practice of giving the president huge leeway to import foreign migrants and refugees into the United States. Liban Haji Mohamed providing material support to Harakat Shabaab Al-Mujahidin, also known as Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for conspiring to provide material support to Al-Shabaab Abdullah Ramo Pazara left the United States to go to Syria and...

    Tuesday at a press conference with French President Francois Hollande, President Barack Obama declared it “our humanitarian duty” to help out with refugees fleeing the Middle East. Obama said, “Americans will not be terrorized. I say all this because another part of being vigilant, another part of defeating terrorists like ISIL is upholding the rights and freedoms that define our two great republics. That includes freedom of religion.

    While some public officials would have you think Syrian refugees are a national threat, the mayor of Dallas couldn’t disagree more. Saturday, Mayor Mike Rawlings told MSNBC that the United States should welcome refugees and also admitted there are bigger homegrown threats to be worried about. “I am more fearful of large gatherings of white men that come into schools, theaters and shoot people up, but we don’t isolate young white men on this issue,” Rawlings said responding to questions about the threat of terrorists sneaking into the country through refugee programs....

    Let us share a trend from Christian Action Network’s Facebook page, where supporters “Like” the things we do and haters bombard us with profanity and/or insults. When we announced our recent petition drive to keep Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe from settling Syrian refugees in our home state (it’s still open; sign it here), the negative reactions all had a similar tone: that we are “unchristian” for opposing a huge, hasty and very political importation of strangers into our midst from a region known for terrorism and extremist violence. Here are some choice examples: How Christian of you.. WWJTA? (Who would...

    We Americans are a kind and compassionate mostly-Christian people. History backs up that claim. However, our enemies have perfected the art of using our kindness and compassion against us. At no time has this been demonstrated more vividly than today, when Muslim and Leftist propagandists use the horrible plight of children and women (a plight Leftists and Muslims brought about) to try and tug on our heartstrings so that we will naively admit millions more Islamists into our country, a large majority of whom perfectly fit the profile of those who have committed thousands of vicious terrorist attacks around the...
