President Obama wants more Syrian Muslim refugees in the United States. Speaking in Turkey in November, Obama explained that the West ‘needed to open its heart to Muslim refugees, who after all were fleeing from terrorism in the Middle East to the safe and warm arms of the West.’
What is un-American and shameful is Obama and mainstream media covering up the desperate cries for help from Christians who are being systematically slaughtered by ISIS.
Their emphasis is on the so called poor Syrian refugees who he is flooding the United States with; Obama has scheduled 100,000 refugees to be placed in THESE 180 American cities.
Obama practically called Americans Islamophobic when he explained that proposals by Republicans to house Christian refugees but not Muslim refugees was un-American:
“When I hear folks say that maybe we should just admit the Christians but not the Muslims, when I hear political leaders suggesting that there would be a religious test for which person who is feeling from a war-torn country is admitted, when some of those folks themselves come from families who benefited from protection when they were fleeing political persecution, that’s shameful. That’s not American. That’s not who we are.”
So, to be clear, it’s un-American to accept only Christian refugees from a region of the world where they are routinely persecuted for their religious persuasion, despite the heightened risk of terrorism from Muslim refugees. But it’s perfectly American for the State Department to consider ruling that Christians living under ISIS rule are not victims of an impending genocide, and to insist that the West house, feed, and clothe Muslim refugees. It’s un-American to protect American lives; it’s perfectly American to take in un-vetted refugees of the same general religious persuasion as the terrorists of 9/11 and 7/7 and Paris, without regard to the safety of the citizenry.
While the West churns its guts over Muslim refugees, Muslim countries aren’t doing so. There are fifty Muslim-majority countries all over the globe. Just five Muslim countries have taken in significant numbers of refugees: Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt. Only Egypt does not share a border with Syria. A huge percentage of refugees entering Europe are doing so not directly from Syria, but through Turkey, which has taken in approximately two million refugees but is housing hundreds of thousands in internment camps.
Obama says that decency requires Americans risk their lives and security to save Muslim refugees, many of whom are young, single men, without proper background checks and without any distinction between the capacity of Christians and Muslims to integrate into Christian-based societies.
No shock there. Obama has made it perfectly clear that he prefers Islam over the safety and security of Americans.
