Today, according to WND, the next flood of people coming to America will be displaced Muslim Syrians. It seems that more than 200,000 refugees from Islamic countries since 1990 have immigrated to the United States courtesy of the the United Nations high commissioner for refugees. Most of them coming from Somalia and Iraq. Syria will be the next country added to the mix.
It seems that while we have been distracted by the seemingly ineptitude of the president over the handling of ISIL, he has been busy behind the scenes paving the way for the Syrian refugees for months. The refugees are scheduled to arrive soon in American cities throughout the U.S.
Rules are in place that protect the U.S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. However, in February, the State Department moved to ease these rules. Viewed as “too strict” by the refugee-resettlement groups that lobby Congress and our sympathetic administration, the rules would not allow Muslims to continuously enter the U.S. from the war-torn Middle East.
WND says, “Obama’s State Department is expected to present Congress with a list within the next two weeks that shows the total number of foreign refugees it wants to accept into the country over the next year and the countries from which they will come. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.”
The Winston-Salem Journal carried a report last week that the Triad area of North Carolina could receive some of the refugees. The first Syrian family has already arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina, and is living in a hotel there.
It should be noted that once the refugees are relocated to an American city, they are quickly connected to a smorgasbord of taxpayer-funded social services, including Medicaid, food stamps and subsidized housing. Interpreters and tutors are often provided to help bridge the language gap that refugee children will find in local public schools. Our schools are already overloaded from the deluge of illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America.
While not wanting to seem unsympathetic, one must be conscious of the culture clash created by the resettling of Muslims in America. Muslim families have considerably more children than the typical American family. For example, the average Somali couple in Minnesota has six children. They will quickly become the majority.
The demographics of host cities such as Minneapolis, Minnesota, Shelbyville, Tennessee, and Lewiston, Maine have all been changed and all have reported culture clashes between Muslims expecting everything from foot baths at public colleges to dietary concessions at public schools. According to Tyson Foods, their meat-packing plant in Shelbyville decided in 2009 to acquiesce to a local union’s demands to drop the paid holiday of Labor Day in favor of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr, a decision that Tyson later reversed in the wake of a public backlash.
When someone immigrates to another country, they do so to become a part of that country not to change that country. Not so with Muslims. They come to demand that their customs supersede those of America. They want Islam to be the only accepted religion, which is what our founders fought against. They want to “fundamentally” change America. Sound familiar?
Pamela Geller, author of Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance raises the point, “You know, we have a real problem, they’ve disarmed the American people, misinforming them or not informing them at all,” Geller said. “There are no human rights under the Shariah for non-Muslims, and so the U.N. is deeply problematic. And we do their bidding.”
Steve Emerson, a counter-terrorism expert and author of six books on radical Islam, said the screening process for refugees isn’t tight enough.
It has long been warned that there are two methods of creating Islamic supremacy in the world. One is through violent jihad. The other is through al-hijra, or the Islamic doctrine of immigration. Ann Corcoran, a writer and researcher for Refugee Resettlement Watch said, “Basically you have those who want to take over (countries) through immigration saying to the jihadists ‘you guys need to stop cutting people’s heads off and be patient.’” Al-hijra will accomplish the same goal over the long term in countries open to immigration, which includes the United States and most of Europe.
