Barack Obama:Middle East Slayer of Christians,Arms Supplier to Muslim Fascists.Why O Israel ?
Muslim Refugees, Yes – Persecuted Christian Refugees, No
Christians are in imminent danger across the world, and yet they are
being refused refugee status, while Muslim refugee immigration goes on
U.S. policy regarding refugee resettlement would
shock most Americans if they only knew. The United Nations picks who
gets to come to the U.S. as a refugee. The mandate of the U.N. High
Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to determine which of the world’s
huddled masses comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. And
predictably, this U.N. body is favoring Muslims. Christians from Muslim
lands are being refused refugee status.
This is occurring despite the fact that in their home countries,
under the Shariah, Christians face persecution and many times certain
death for their religious beliefs. At the same time, whole Muslim
communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month,
despite the fact that in their home countries they face no religious
This is no accident. We know that the U.N. is driven largely by its
largest bloc of countries, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. The
OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world.
It is a religious and political organization with ties to the Muslim
Brotherhood, an organization dedicated in its own words to “eliminating
and destroying Western civilization from within.”
It is horrifying but true that Afghan Christians are being refused
refugee status by the U.N. and many Western nations, including Great
Britain. The U.N. claims that Afghan Christians do not meet the criteria
for refugee status that is stipulated in Statute 6B of the UNHCR, which
requires refugees to have “a well founded fear of persecution by reason
of his race, religion, nationality or political opinion.”
s this why we expended incalcuable blood and treasure in Afghanistan?
So that Christians would face persecution and slaughter? What was the
UNHCR trends for 2006 indicated that worldwide there were more than
32.9 million “persons of concern,” including around 11 million who were
designated as “refugees.” Most of these came from Somalia, Darfur in the
Sudan, Ethiopia, Iraq, Pakistan and Myanmar – all Muslim countries
except Myanmar and Ethiopia (which has a huge Muslim population). That
means that many refugees from these countries are non-Muslims seeking to
escape religious persecution. But they are just the ones being denied.
The U.S. ranks third among the world’s nations in the number of
refugees we host. Since 1976, millions of new citizens have entered the
United States as legal humanitarian refugees, according to reports from
the U.S. State Department. The large groups of Somalis that have
recently come to the U.S. are certified as “humanitarian refugees” under
our State Department rules. Whole Muslim communities are imported into
the United States. When they get here, they are supported by social
services provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services. The cities that receive these
huge numbers of refugees are.
Humanitarian refugees have literally won the proverbial lottery.
Typically, they receive green cards as resident aliens within a year of
arrival in the U.S. and are eligible to become full U.S. citizens within
five years, unless they violate our immigration laws, commit a felony
or are deported. In the process, they are provided with cash stipends
and social services assistance from federal, state, NGOs and voluntary
But this lottery is not open to non-Muslim refugees. Back in October 2008, Muslim U.N. employees were “discouraging” applicationsfor
resettlement from the desperate Christian Iraqis. The Christian Iraqi
population has since been decimated: Over half of the pre-war Christian
population of Iraq has now fled the country.
By buying into the argument that Islam is a religion of peace and
ignoring the penalties for apostasy, we are sentencing thousands of
Christians to martyrdom and forcing others to live in the shadows in
We need to demand that our government provide protection and asylum
for Christian refugees and converts from Islam to Christianity who are
threatened under Islam’s death penalty for apostates

WASHINGTON — Two years into a civil war that shows no signs of
ending, the Obama administration is considering resettling refugees who
have fled Syria, part of an international effort that could bring
thousands of Syrians to American cities and towns.
resettlement plan under discussion in Washington and other capitals is
aimed at relieving pressure on Middle Eastern countries straining to
support 1.6 million refugees, as well as assisting hard-hit Syrian
The State Department is “ready to consider the idea,” an official
from the department said, if the administration receives a formal
request from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for
Refugees, which is the usual procedure.
The United States usually accepts about half the refugees that the
U.N. agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken
the largest share, but Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and
Virginia are also popular destinations.
U.N. refugee officials, diplomats and nongovernmental relief groups
plan to discuss possible resettlement schemes at a high-level meeting
this week in Geneva. Germany already has committed to taking 5,000
“It was probably inevitable that in this crisis, with these
overwhelming numbers, governments would start moving in this direction,”
said Lavinia Limon, chief executive officer of the U.S. Committee for
Refugees and Immigrants, a Virginia-based advocacy and service group.
“But there will be resistance.”
The Obama administration supports rebels trying to oust Syrian
President Bashar Assad, but is wary of deeper involvement in Syria.
The issue is politically sensitive on several levels.
Congress strongly resisted accepting Iraqi refugees, including
interpreters who had worked with U.S. forces, after the 2003 U.S.-led
invasion. Most lawmakers share White House caution about getting more
engaged in Syria and may have little appetite for a major influx.
But Susan Rice, President Obama’s new national security advisor, and
Samantha Power, Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., both
have been strong advocates for refugees. They may make the White House
more receptive to at least a partial opening.
Homeland security officials require careful vetting of refugees, with
multiple interviews and background checks before they are allowed to
enter the country. Under normal circumstances, the screening process can
take a year or longer.
U.S. officials are likely to be extra careful with Syrian refugees.
As Islamic militants take a more prominent role in the rebel forces,
officials worry about fighters with Al Qaeda ties trying to enter the
country. Two resettled Iraqis were convicted of trying to send arms to
Al Qaeda from their home in Bowling Green, Ky.
The refugee dilemma is more acute for countries that lie on Syria’s borders.
Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon, which have absorbed the bulk of the
refugees, worry that a resettlement plan could actually widen the flood
if Syrians see a chance for a better life in North America, Europe or
Jordan and Lebanon each have taken in about 500,000 refugees and
Turkey has more than 375,000, according to the U.N. refugee agency. It
predicts that the total number of refugees will double to 3.2 million by
the end of the year.
Turkey already has demanded that the West take some its refugees,
even proposing an airlift to fly them abroad. Prime Minister Recep
Tayyip Erdogan, who has faced angry protests against his government for
giving refuge to so many Syrians, declared last month, “We are the first
victims of the Syrian situation.”
Some Middle Eastern officials worry they may get stuck housing and
feeding refugees for months or years while the West does the vetting,
leading to an even longer logjam and more domestic political turmoil.
“Their view is that unless this involves big numbers, it’s not worth
doing,” said a European official, who declined to be identified because
of the sensitivity of the subject. “You need to be talking about tens of
thousands of people.”
Western officials try to discourage poor foreigners who are seeking a
more comfortable life or business opportunities in the West. They say
resettlement is only for those who can’t go home, and seek to dispel
notions that an easy life awaits.
According to a State Department publication aimed at refugees, “Cars
are not provided…. Most Americans value self-reliance and hard work.
They expect newcomers to find jobs as soon as possible and to take care
of themselves and their families.”
Another sensitive issue is who qualifies for resettlement. Western
countries often prefer intact, well-educated families with familiar
But experts say 80% of the Syrian refugees are women and children,
many with war-related injuries or psychological problems that could
hamper finding work or going to school.
Kirk Johnson, founder of the List Project, which has pushed for Iraqi
resettlement, said it may be difficult to sell Syrian resettlement to
Congress. He said it would require an advocacy effort and sympathetic
lawmakers, “and I don’t seen either of those necessary ingredients.”
Yet most refugee advocates predict that Americans will ultimately help the Syrians.
“Americans have a long tradition of welcoming refugees,” said Daryl
Grisgraber, a Washington-based Middle East specialist at Refugees
International, which provides advocacy and services for refugees.
“They’ll respond here, too.”
