Obama Considers Resettling Tens of Thousands Syrian Refugees in the US
FrontPageMag.com ^ | June 10, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 06/10/2013 9:43:15 PM PDT by Perseverando

Sure most people just see refugees, but Democrats see voters. A number of the refugees will be Christian, but somehow I think Obama isn’t all that interested in Christian refugees.

Taking in Muslim refugees from Muslim civil wars in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere has largely been a disaster. The original World Trade Center bombing happened in part because the United States was willing to host Egyptian Islamists who would have been arrested in their own country. And who exactly will be taking in now?

If the Muslim Brotherhood Jihadists lose in Syria, their leaders will flee to Europe and America where they will suborn, undermine and plan acts of terror.

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.

A 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 families.

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.

While this is supposed to ease the burden on Jordan, the Jordanians aren’t too enthusiastic about Obama creating a massive immigration magnet that leads through Jordan to America.

Hey Obama, I dare you to import some Christians and Jews from both Egypt and Syria..... they are the real people who need help.

I triple dog dare you/

How about break out some R2P for the Christians/ Jews in the region?

Let those muslims mire in their own sh!t!

He really IS wanting to start a civil war here, isn’t he?

I used to think this was a tinfoil hat idea of mine. It seems more and more logical what he is up to daily.

I honestly don’t think he gets it ...

This is no time for Obama to be considering ANYTHING in any way controversial.

He’s so insulated he doesn’t realize the man and woman on the street have ZERO trust in him at this point.

Hell, just add some more to the amnesty pile.

Although being mostly Muslim, I don’t think Cardinal Dolan or the USCCB will be in favor of these new immigrants.

Wild thought:
Immigration reform and a fast track to citizenship is not about Mexicans but Muslim refugees.

I don't think he cares, do you? I think his ego is fueled by whatever pieces of his radical agenda he can put in place, not what Joe Q. Public happens to think of him.

What's he got to lose? He can indulge his muslim sympathies by settling a million more here. If stopped by congress or public outcry, he can indulge his muslim sympathies by pointing out in speech after speech how hateful Americans are, while handing CAIR and ilk fundraising bait and opportunities to agitate. Either way, it's another chance to poke the country in the eye and try to overwhelm his enemies with the sheer number of radical things he's doing.

If only he DID care what the man and woman on the street think!

You can bet that virtually no Syrian Christians will be let in. Only jihadists will be welcomed by this corrupt regime.

After scrutinizing the news, history, culture of the Mideast, I think we ought to be a little cautious about using the generic term "Christian" on those from within the Muslim-dominated areas.

I've felt strongly about this in general, and have felt the need to coin the term "Christino" or "Christianino" to cover these "Christian In Name Only" (as our RINO is used for those aligned politically but not really committed to the basic beliefs of that party).

It has recently been pointed out to me that the behaviors of Mideast "Christinos" may be not at all what a Western "Christian" might expect, but may rather be not discernibly different than that of the typical Mideast Muslim cultural neighbors.

So, please, I beg of you, don't jump to the conclusion that your statement reflects. There may be a very good reason to reject anyone who cannot easily become acculturated to the Western religious/political tolerance that our Constitution demands of its citizens (but which islamic jihadism does not).

“He really IS wanting to start a civil war here, isn’t he?”

Our home-grown, purse-carrying leftist wimps don’t have the training or the guts to take us out, so they need a mercenary army to do killing for them. The joke is on them though because jihadist attacks take place in liberal land places like Boston.

Thousands more on the free give away welfare programs, voting for the socialists dims, free health care, free schooling, free everything for doing nothing. Probably 50% of them cannot read their own names. No education. No skills. We can give them the billions over there. We do that now. Here though, it is dim votes. Just like those 15 million illegals that are now going to legally vote dimocrat.
