  • Syrian Government Appeals for Refugees to Return, Help Rebuild Country

    07/06/2018 1:54:00 PM PDT · by ATOMIC_PUNK · 16 replies
    BEIRUT (AP) — The Syrian government on Tuesday called on refugees to return, saying it has successfully cleared large areas of “terrorists.” The rare appeal reflects the government’s growing confidence after more than seven years of war. While officials usually appeal to Syrians abroad to return during television appearances and interviews, this is the first formal appeal broadcast on official media. Syrian government forces, with crucial support from Russia and Iran, recently retook large areas near the capital, Damascus, and are waging a new offensive in the south that U.N. officials say has displaced more than 270,000 people. The U.N....

    There have been nightly riots in the banlieues of the French city of Nantes for the last few days after a “youth” was shot to death by police. The puir wee bairn had rammed a cop with his car, trying to run him over, so the police shot him. Oh, the humanity! Now the mischievous youngsters are engaged in the traditional culture-enriching pastimes of throwing Molotov cocktails at police while torching buildings and cars.

    European leaders need to bring immigration numbers down, and metadata on smartphones could be just what they need to start sending migrants back. Smartphones have helped tens of thousands of migrants travel to Europe. A phone means you can stay in touch with your family – or with people smugglers. On the road, you can check Facebook groups that warn of border closures, policy changes or scams to watch out for. Advice on how to avoid border police spreads via WhatsApp. Now, governments are using migrants' smartphones to deport them. Across the continent, migrants are being confronted by a booming...

    (snip) --- A horrific stabbing spree at a Boise, Idaho, apartment complex last night left nine people injured, including six children. Local media reports state that four of the victims have life-threatening injuries. The national media quickly seized on the fact that the apartment complex was known to house refugees and that some of the victims themselves were apparently refugees. Despite the fact that the 30-year-old male suspect was arrested last night at 8:50 p.m. and his arrest record and mugshot were posted on the Ada County Sheriff's website at 3:46 this morning, none of the articles identified the suspect....

    A NEW Syria is emerging from the rubble of war. In Homs, which Syrians once dubbed the “capital of the revolution” against President Bashar al-Assad, the Muslim quarter and commercial district still lie in ruins, but the Christian quarter is reviving. Churches have been lavishly restored; a large crucifix hangs over the main street. “Groom of Heaven”, proclaims a billboard featuring a photo of a Christian soldier killed in the seven-year conflict. In their sermons, Orthodox patriarchs praise Mr Assad for saving one of the world’s oldest Christian communities.

    Jordan’s King Abdullah II Bin Al-Hussein shared an unusually flattering assessment of President Donald Trump on Monday, praising the president’s “humility” and “grace” during a visit to the White House. “If the rest of the world just took a little bit of your humility and your grace, we’d be in a lot better position,” Abdullah said. Trump thanked Abdullah for the compliment, pointing out to the press that he used the word “humility” to describe him. “I’m happy with that word,” Trump grinned. “It’s probably the nicest compliment I’ve been given in a long time.” Trump praised the king of...

    The number of refugees admitted to the US has fallen 70 percent during the current fiscal year, setting it on course to fall far short of the Trump administration’s targets, according to a new report. … Syrians and Iraqis fleeing violence were hardest hit by the cuts, with the number of Syrians taken in falling by 99 per cent to just 44 — fewer than the number rescue workers say were killed in April’s chemical attack on Douma, the Damascus suburb — and the number of Iraqis down by 98 per cent.

    President Trump challenged Democrats to “come to the table” to fix the country’s immigration system, saying Monday that the current battle is over whether the U.S. should have borders. Speaking at the White House Mr. Trump said the U.S. “will not be a migrant camp.” He said if Congress can find agreement on a way to update what he called the “worst immigration laws in the entire world” it could be a trendsetting move for the rest of the globe. “Just remember — a country without borders is not a country at all. We need borders, we need security, we...

    taly and France have jointly expressed support for EU "asylum centres" to be set up in countries where many migrants begin their journeys to Europe. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and French President Emmanuel Macron met in Paris after a days-long row over the fate of the rescue ship Aquarius. Italy had refused to accept the vessel, carrying more than 600 African migrants, diverting it to Spain. Mr Conte and Mr Macron have now agreed the current system must be reformed. Mr Macron proposed building migration centres in countries of departure, including Libya, from which many people attempt a dangerous...

    Managua (AFP) – One evening as she watched some local kids play outside in her Managua neighborhood, Nicaraguan Mireya Alegria was shocked to see police, motorcycles and a white van carrying hooded men speed past. “They started firing,” she says. It was the moment she decided enough was enough. Now Alegria is one of the thousands of Nicaraguans desperately seeking to process migration documents and flee to neighboring Central American countries, as two months of anti-government dissent has triggered increasingly violent state repression. “Thousands of people come daily to do paperwork,” said Nubia Manzanares, a migration agent, adding that many...

    A ship carrying more than 600 rescued migrants, including 123 unaccompanied minors and seven pregnant women, remained stranded in the Mediterranean Sea on Monday after Italy's new populist government refused to allow it to dock the day before, in a move described by rescuers as unprecedented. Matteo Salvini, Italy's hardline interior minister and leader of the anti-immigration League party, called on the country to "close the ports" and pledged Sunday to "STOP the filthy business of illegal immigration." Supplies on the ship are beginning to run low and a number of people are in need of medical treatment, including 15...

    FYI--Muslim Somali refugees don’t come directly from Somalia, but were hand-picked for migration by Obama from all over the world including: Kenya, South Africa, Malaysia, Malta, and even, from Saudi Arabia. From February 1, 2005 to February 1, 2015 Obama hand-picked a total of 64,332 Somalis to the US from all over the world!
