Syrian “Refugees” And The Paris Jihadist Massacre

The concurrent Islamic-sponsored atrocities occurring in Syria and Paris have finally focused an intense level of attention from the U.S. media and public on the peril of importing Islamic jihad in the persons of Muslims claiming “refugee” status. Obama and the Democrats are defying common sense in their desire to bring Syrian Muslims who cannot be vetted to this country. To quote the FBI Director, James Comey:
The challenge we’re all talking about is that, we can only query against that (data) which we have collected. And so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interest reflected in our database, we can query our database until the cows come home but there would be nothing show up because we have no record on it. “You can only query what you have collected. And with respect to the Iraqi refugees, we had far more in our database because of our country’s work there, for a decade. This is a different situation.
Therefore, rather than futilely attempting to make a coherently logical case in the U.S. political arena, the Democrats and their sycophant media are engaging in constant efforts to distract the U.S. body politic from clearly seeing the dangerous national security implications of relocating Muslims into the U.S. In order to confuse the issue and dupe the public, Democrats and their media shills falsely charge that Republicans resist bringing Syrian and other Muslims into the country because they are “racist and religiously bigoted;” thereby disingenuously using emotion and a false moral equivalence dilemma to attempt to refute common sense based on documented, historical experience with jihadist violence, AKA “terrorism.” The Democrats are evading taking on the irrefutable Republican evidence that al-Qaeda jihadists have already entered the U.S. through the refugee program and that:
There have been roughly 70 terrorist plots in the United States since 9/11 and scores of young people who are first or second generation refugees and immigrants who have become involved in some way with Islamist jihadists, either by undertaking attacks here or traveling overseas to join a terrorist group, or both.
So, instead of attempting the impossible task of rebutting the unassailable evidence in the House Homeland Security Committee Report, “SYRIAN REFUGEE FLOWS: Security Risks And Counterterrorism Challenges,“ the Democrats have naturally resorted to their standard personal smear tactics in order to dodge confronting the facts that give the lie to their irresponsible liberal scheme. They are launching character assassinations by attacking the moral integrity of those opposing their incompetent, dangerous plans. As usual, the Democrats are impugning the responsible critics, that are advocating for judicious national security policies to protect the American people, as “racist, bigoted haters” who are afraid of “widows and three year-old orphans.” The Democrats’ desperate, irrelevant, and unfounded ad hominem attacks betray their lack of substance to make their case for importing potential Muslim jihadists. Then they completely destroy all credibility by refusing to even acknowledge their opponents’ honest concerns for national security, which is the first duty of the U.S. Government. Obama and the Democrats refuse to put first things first.

The Syrian “Refugee” Issue

The Obama regime originally set off a domestic uproar in the U.S. when it announced that Obama plans to bring in 10,000 Syrian “refugees” over the next year, in addition to the more than 2,000 that Obama has already relocated into the U.S. Then this refugee furor was exacerbated when Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill, and thirteen other Democrat senators called on the president to up the number to at least 65,000 Syria “refugees.” To add to this uproar, Durbin next increased the number he was calling on Obama to admit to 100,000! Of course, these irresponsible Democrat admission proposals were made despite the fact that the FBI Director had made clear that Muslims from Syria cannot be vetted. Without a doubt, bringing any number of Syrian “refugees” into the U.S. is problematic because of the impossibility of vetting them and because the Islamic State has openly declared that they intend to use the refugee crisis to infiltrate the West by introducing their operatives into the refugee flow. This same Islamic State source claimed that 4,000 trained Islamic State fighters have already been smuggled into Europe. Of course, it is only logical to assume that the Islamic State intends to use infiltration of the refugee stream to place operatives in the U.S. also, thus making vetting imperative for the U.S. Government. Furthermore, it is obvious that all those claiming refugee status are not “refugees.” In fact, the foremost Western expert on Islam, Robert Spencer, has explained that the “refugees” are really just a cover for “stealth jihad.” The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah. . . or jihad by emigration . . . To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (Quran Sura 4:100) The Obama regime and many Democrats facetiously assert that the vetting system is adequate to preclude Syrian jihadist infiltration because it takes 24 months, and they further maintain the Syrian humanitarian crisis compels the U.S. to act humanely and accept “refugees” in biblical proportions because “they deserve our support” due to the war hardships they’ve experienced. The Democrat claim that the U.S. “owes” entry and resettlement in this country to Syrians because they have endured war is just specious! There are wars occurring all over the world all of the time and to maintain that the U.S. must accommodate the victims of those wars that have been dislocated is simply irrational logic. But most important to consider in the case of these Syrians is that they were on the losing side in an internal Islamic sectarian war, and merely because they are the losing victims does not mean that they share American Judeo-Christian or even Western secular values and are willing or capable of successfully assimilating into American society. Additional Democrat arguments to justify bringing in as many fleeing Syrians as possible include, in Obama’s words “Syrian refugees are no bigger threat to the U.S. than ‘tourists’.”

The Issue Is Much Bigger Than Just Syrian “Refugees”

Actually Obama has a valid point that Muslim refugees and Muslim tourists are of equal mortal danger to the American people. In fact, Muslims pose a mortal threat to Americans, regardless whether they are refugees, tourists, or second generation U.S.-born Muslims. The issue may be summarized by the simple statement of fact: If you are not talking about Islamic theology, you are not talking about the real existential issue facing America and the Western world. The point that matters is when considering Muslims isn’t race, ethnicity, or country of birth; rather it is only about belief because belief determines behavior. When a Muslim professes belief in the Islamic faith, that person is professing belief in the scriptural foundation of Islam, the Quran. The Quran contains 109 suras or verses that are direct commands from Allah to make jihadist war against all who do not believe in Islam. Moreover, just because a Muslim may not be personally active in jihad, it does not negate the fact that those 109 suras will always be the scriptural basis of Islam, nor does it mean that other Muslims will not engage in jihad. And furthermore, it does not even guarantee that the non-jihadist Muslim at one point in time will not be radicalized and become an active jihadist at a later date. All of the propaganda distraction from Obama and the Democrats about Muslims not being a danger due to thorough Muslim assimilation in America or, that because only a small percentage of Muslims are jihadists, they are not a threat, are obfuscations meant to mislead Americans. Just a quick mention of Major Nidal Hasan, Yusuf Ibrahim, Dzhokhar and Tamerian Tsarnaev, Ali Muhammad Brown, Nadir Soof, and Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez gives the lie to the thorough American assimilation falsehood. Regarding the contention that only a small percentage of Muslims are jihadists, just 10 jihadists killed 130 in Paris and merely 10 jihadist attackers murdered 166 in Mumbai. Between 2009 and 2013 Obama has issued 680,000 green cards to Muslims. If as few as only 1% were jihadists, there could be 6,800 jihadists in that group. If 10% were jihadists, that number of jihadists could be 68,000. In either case, Obama may be responsible for mass American casualties in the future, and such would be Obama’s legacy. Do we need 10,000 to 100,000 more Syrian Muslims that we have no possibility to vet in addition to the 680,000 Muslims which Obama has already admitted? In any future consideration of Muslim immigration, it would be well for all Americans to consider carefully the words of the late-14th century Islamic writer and historian Ibn Khaldun:
In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.
Therefore, in view of Ibn Khaldun’s pronouncement, declaring that the mission of Islam to be “holy war” (jihad), when 21st century Muslims are killing and dying carrying out this 7th century traditional religious imperative, it is blind foolishness to assert that there is no relationship between Islam and Islamic terrorism. Conclusion On the subject of foreign immigrants coming into the U.S. (and on innumerable other subjects), Obama has zero credibility. Twenty-two times he assured his fellow citizens that he did not have the executive authority to change immigration law, then he issued an executive order that purportedly grants executive amnesty to five million illegal aliens, as if he were promulgating a royal decree. Believing Obama, regarding the Muslims he has admitted and the additional Muslims he wants to admit to the U.S., is a leap of faith that has scant justification. The hope for the future rests with the Congress. Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) and Rep. Paul Gozar (R-AZ) are cosponsoring H.R. 3314 that, if enacted, will put an immediate moratorium on the refugee resettlement program and prevent these potentially dangerous individuals from entering U.S. borders.
