US policy regarding the refugee resettlement program would shock most Americans if they only knew. The UN picks who becomes US refugees. Christians are being refused refugee status and face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs under the sharia, while whole Muslim communities are entering the US by the tens of thousnds per month despite the fact that they face no religious persecution.
It is horrifiying that Afghan Christians are being refused refugee status by the UN and many Western nations, including Britian. The UN claims that Afghan Christians do not meet the criteria for refugees under Statute 6B of the UN High Commission of Refugees (UNHCR), which requires refugees to have "a well founded fear of persecution by reason of his race, religion, nationality or political opinion."
Since 1976, millions of new citizens have entered America as legal humanitarian refugees, according to reports of the US State Department. The Somalis are certified as "humanitarian refugees" under our State Department rules. Whole Muslim communities are imported into the United States, and they are supported by social services provided by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The cities who receive these huge numbers are determined by Refugee Councils. And yet back in October 2008, Muslim UN employees were "discouraging" applications for resettlement from the desperate Christian Iraqis. The Christian Iraqi population has since been decimated. 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 dire poverty. We need to demand that our government provide protection and asylum for Christian apostates.
Humanitarian refugees have literally won the proverbial lottery. Typically, they receive green cards as resident aliens within a year of arrival and are eligible to become full US citizens within five years, unless they violate our immigration laws, commit a felony or are deported. In the process they are provided with cash stipend and social services assistance from federal, state, NGOs and voluntary agency contractors. The irony is the mandate of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) determines which of the worlds huddled masses comes to the US as humanitarian refugees. UNHCR trends for 2006 indicate that worldwide there were more than 32.9 million persons of concern with approximately one third defined as refugees. Major refugee hot spots include the Horn of Africa with Somalia, Darfur in the Sudan and Ethiopia, Iraq, Pakistan and Myanmar. The US is the third highest ranked country in terms of hosting refugees. The annual budget for the UNHCR is over $1.7 billion derived from government contributions, foundation grants and donations. A veritable cottage industry of federal and state alphabet soup agencies, NGOs and voluntary agencies or VOLAG contractors has sprung up to facilitate absorption of humanitarian refugees. (more here)
This is no accident. We know that the UN is drivenly largely by the largest bloc of countries, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation). The OIC is one of the largest intergovernmental organizations in the world.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is a religious and political organization. Close to the Muslim World League of the Muslim Brotherhood, it shares the Brotherhood's strategic and cultural vision: that of a universal religious community, the Ummah, based upon the Koran, the Sunna, and the canonical orthodoxy of shari'a. The OIC represents 56 countries and the Palestinian Authority (considered a state), the whole constituting the universal Ummah with a community of more than one billion three to six hundred million Muslims.
The OIC has a unique structure among nations and human societies. The Vatican and the various churches are de facto devoid of political power, even if they take part in politics, because in Christianity, as in Judaism, the religious and political functions have to be separated. Asian religions, too, do not represent systems that bring together religion, strategy, politics, and law within a single organizational structure. (More from Bat Yeor) The OIC is a unique organization one that has no equivalent in the world. It unites the religious, economic, military, and political strength of 56 states. By contrast, the European Union represents half as many states and is a secular body only, and the Vatican which speaks for the worlds 1.1 billion Catholics is devoid of any political power. Many Muslims in the West resist the OICs tutelage and oppose its efforts to supplant Western law with sharia. But the OICs resources are formidable.
The organization has numerous subsidiary institutions collaborating at the highest levels with international organizations in order to implement its political objectives worldwide. Its main working bodies are the Islamic Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), which seeks to impose on the West the Islamic perception of history and civilization; the Observatory of Islamophobia, which puts pressure on Western governments and international bodies to adopt laws punishing Islamophobia and blasphemy; and the newly created Islamic International Court of Justice. As stated in its 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, the OIC is strictly tied to the principles of the Koran, the Sunnah, and the sharia. In a word, the OIC seeks to become the reincarnation of the Caliphate. Is this why we expended incalcuable blood and treasure in Afghanistan? So that Christians would face persecution and slaughter? What was the objective? Sharia?
Geller works very hard, is kind of a lone voice in the wilderness and under constant pressure and attack from CAIR. She deserves much more support than she gets, both moral and financial. Please visit her site yourself sometime.
I TOO have noticed this, in airports across Europe, I’ve seen BOATLOADS of people like from Somalia, no passports, no English, no job skills. I talked to the people half of them were calle Mohammed, and they were goin’ to America. But I’ve never seen them say bring in the Amish of Russia types! Or the Armenians in Turkey whom I’ve met that suffer dearly.
That's just wonderful. Seriously. It fills me with wonder how anybody could think this bodes well for America.
It doesn’t, we have a traitor in the white house running the show..It is not civilized to bring snakes into your house in order to prove your kindness..
Or Canada.I have a friend that worked for a while delivering pizzas in Vancouver. Most of drivers were Afghani! How the hell does an unskilled Afghani get to immigrate to Canada? Retorical question - basically the same way they do to the USA.
We have a Muslim in the White House,why should we be surprised that he brings in Muslims and keeps out Christians.
Christians are under attack right in this country,by the ACLU and atheists, Every day it seems another attack is made on Christians.Right now it is not so much an attack on individual Christians,but on the Christian faith as a whole.
It's like the world crisis that created the UN (WWII and the Holocaust) never happened.
Send her some money! CAIR takes in 400K in one dinner and folks like her have to scratch for 20 bucks!
You may know that Pam Geller was dis-invited to speak at the Hyatt in Nashville, TN. Well, we all raised quite a stink so now the Hyatt has told her she can appear at the Hyatt in Dearborn Michigan for her conference for this poor young girl, victim of an honor killing.
My hubby and I and many of Pamela's friends are going to be there. We will meet her in Dearborn. I hope there are many Michigan Freepers and other Freepers within a not too long driving distance who will also show up in Dearborn in support of Pamela. We are going from Florida, so sure others can within a very few hours drive.
Freepers who happen to read this please FreepMail me if you will plan to be there in Dearborn. The event will be in April, 2012. I will share details with those who let me know you plan to come in support of Pamela. Thanks!
