Quote# 114768[From an article titled, "Three Media Lies About Syrian Refugees"]
1. The "Refugees" Are Not Fleeing Persecution, They're Welfare Migrants
Muslims are not fleeing to Europe because of religious persecution, but for economic reasons. They specifically seek out countries such as Germany and Sweden with generous welfare states.
The media loves offering false analogies to Jewish refugees during the Holocaust. But the Jews were a stateless people then. They had no country of their own to go to. Muslims have more countries than nearly every other religion on the planet. They choose to go to the wealthiest Western countries, rejecting Slovenia and Bulgaria for Germany and Sweden, because they want money and they want easy money.
Syrian Muslims are not refugees. They're migrants. Only Christians and other non-Muslims are refugees.
While Muslims have easy access to UN refugee camps in Muslim countries, Christians have trouble surviving there. But by outsourcing our immigration to the UN's refugee infrastructure, we abandon Christian refugees and instead take in Muslim welfare migrants. And that is truly shameful.
There is no reason for us to provide special privileges for Muslim economic migrants. [...]
We already take in far more immigrants every year than we can afford.
It's time for our leaders to put our country and our people first.
2. Taking in "Refugees" Helps ISIS
ISIS not only embeds its terrorists as refugees in Europe, but it depends on European Muslims for recruits. Thousands of European Muslims ahve already left to join ISIS. Even those Syrian migrants that may be opposed to the group will have children that will provide a recruiting reserve for ISIS or other groups like it. Without the refugees and children of refugees in Europe from previous generations, ISIS might not even have enough fighters. And the refugees make it easier for ISIS to attack Europe.
Even those Syrians who will never support ISIS and whose children will never support it aid ISIS just by leaving the country. The large numbers of military age men are in part fleeing to avoid being drafted to fight ISIS. Potential ISIS opponents who leave Syria for permanent resettlement in Europe or America make it easier for the Islamic State to consolidate its control over the country.
Every time Europe or America takes in a military age Syrian as a refugee, they are helping ISIS by aiding deserters from the Syrian military, the Free Syrian Army and other groups that are fighting ISIS.
During WW2, we weren't encouraging British soldiers to run away and move to America. So why are human rights activists helping ISIS by encouraging Syrian deserters to flee the fight against ISIS?
3. Vetting Syrian Migrants is Impossible
Syria is a non-functioning state and a state sponsor of terror. We can't rely on it and that means we have to rely on information from UNHCR. The UN refugee agency is incompetent and overloaded. Its employees are corrupt and have a history of selling refugee cards to the highest bidder.
It's UNHCR that decides who qualifies for resettlement and any vetting we do afterward is cosmetic.
The only way to be absolutely sure is not to allow any potential terrorists into the country. It's a much safer bet than assuming that the same system that failed to stop the World Trade Center bombing, 9/11, the Boston Marathon bombing and other terrorist attacks will work exactly when we need it to.
Migrants arriving from terror states are unsafe at any degree of vetting. Our system has failed before and will fail again. We owe it to our children and our loved ones to protect them from the next attack.
And our leaders owe it to us to stop lying about the risks of Muslim migration to our families and our future.
