UNHCR head honcho: near permanent refugee burden

So what else is new!

Antonio Guterres, UN refugee chief and Socialist, says they aren’t going home.  Would you go home to Afghanistan or Somalia?

From AFP:

GENEVA — UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres warned governments on Monday that unrelenting conflicts in Afghanistan and Africa were creating a near permanent “global” refugee burden.

Highlighting decades of displacement for millions of Afghans and Somalis, Guterres told the UNHCR’s annual governing Executive Committee that last year was the worst in two decades for returns.

About 250,000 refugees went back home in 2009, about one quarter of the annual average over the past 10 years, according to the agency.

They included just 61 Somalis.

My first question on the 61 Somalis who went home is, are they the former refugees who returned to Somalia for terrorist training?  Why else go back?  And, my second question is, why doesn’t Guterres mention the thousands sent back to Mogadishu by the good and charitable Muslims of Saudi Arabia (here)?

Guterres said last year that the tradition of helping refugees comes from Islamic Shariah law and not Christian charity.  I kid you not!

Then get this!  Guterres says 800,000 need resettlement and there are only 10% of those who will be resettled.  Interesting number since the US goal in recent years and I expect for 2011 it will be the same (we are still waiting to see what Obama proposed to Congress last Thursday) is 80,000.  The US then takes almost all of the world’s resettled refugees!

Flag of Islam to fly over the White House

We’ve heard that statement from Choudary and others many times before, but today we should thank ABC which was probably hoping to have a politically correct discussion on Islam but for the truth coming from a UK Imam’s mouth.  ABC does us all a good service by reaching an audience that would not normally get an up close look at supremacist Islam.  Leftists will dismiss what Anjem Choudary said on Sunday, but do so at their own peril.

Here is the Washington Times editorial today on plans for Shariah law in America.  Hat tip:  Jerry Gordon

Islamists say the Koran is destined to rule America. In fact, the Muslim takeover of the White House is not just an unfolding action plan but a directive from Muhammad himself.

In an interview Sunday on ABC‘s “This Week,” British radical Muslim activist Anjem Choudary made clear what he and his Islamist brothers have planned for the West. “We do believe, as Muslims, the East and the West will one day be governed by the Shariah,” he said. “Indeed, we believe that one day, the flag of Islam will fly over the White House.” He then quoted a hadith, or saying of Muhammad, as related by 10th-century Muslim scholar Al-Tabarani, that “the final hour will not come until Muslims conquer the White House.” Another version of the saying goes, “A small portion of Muslims will rise and conquer the White House.”

Read it all.

Free Republic is telling us that ABC has taken down the film clip of Choudary’s incendiary remarks.  But, you can see Chourdary spouting off at Free Republic, here.  Hat tip Susan.

Readers, we have a category for the ‘stealth jihad’ you may wish to visit to understand how important Muslim immigration and the demands Muslim immigrants make are to the process of inserting Shariah law into the American system of government and laws.  The Tea Party’s focus on the US Constitution could not have come at a more important time.
