I don’t know where these refugees fit into our overall program, but a report from Syria says:
Around 12,000 Iraqi refugees living in Syria will be resettled in Europe and the United States, according to an official from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Germany, the US, Canada,The Netherlands and other countries, have agreed to host a number of Iraqi refugees in Syria, an unnamed source told Adnkronos International (AKI).
….”Germany has agreed to take in 2,500 refugees, and the same with The Netherlands, while the United States 5,000 others,” the official source told AKI.
“Some of the refugees will attend classes that will help them integrate to their new host country.”
I guess that’s where they will learn that the United States is a land of milk and honey that will provide everything for them and set them up in their former professions. Then they’ll get here and find that is as far from the truth as can be. They’ll be living in poverty and frustration and will end up hating America and Americans. Great program!
The report continues, with no context to these remarks:
The UNHCR source, however, rejected the notion that religion played a role in the selection of candidates.
“There is no preference about this point and among the conditions by host countries there is absolutely no discrimination in this sense,” said the source.
Who said religion did play a part? We don’t know. But it is preposterous that religion doesn’t play a part in the selection. Muslim refugees should be encouraged to go home unless there are specific reasons they can’t. Christian and other minority refugees should be resettled in third countries in places where they can join people from their particular sect, unless there are specific reasons they can go home. Our stupid policy of nondiscrimination is one more example of how political correctness has turned the brains of otherwise intelligent people to mush.
