Before I get to this bit of news, I bet you are wondering how Palestinians came from Iraq to Norway (instead of from Gaza) in the first place. A few years ago we wrote extensively about the subject.
As you are probably aware no one wants the Palestinians—and that means NO Muslim country wants them either. Well, except Iraq under Saddam Hussein who invited Palestinians to live in Iraq during his regime. So, to make a long story short, when the Sunni minority was basically overthrown with the help of the US, the Palestinians, in the minds of the Shiites, were associated with the departed Saddam Hussein.
Fearing retribution from the newly energized Shiites, a large group of Iraqi Palestinians fled to Syria but were denied entry and so a Palestinian camp was set up on the border of Iraq and Syria. Much agitation from the US refugee industry lobbyists and the UN culminated in a July 2009 national news story—the US would begin taking these Iraqi Palestinians (1350 to start)! They were scheduled to be admitted in the numbers allotted for Iraqis so that you wouldn’t know we were bringing Palestinians to your towns. I assume those shipments are on-going.
So, who are these “Iraqi” Palestinians in Norway that Norway wants to deport? Who knows! They could be from anywhere. If they were among the “refugees” that no Muslim country wanted on the border of Syria and Iraq, they didn’t make the cut to come to the US.
Now they are camping out in Oslo with a banner that proclaims, “we don’t want to fight, we just want our right.”
Here is the story from the Women News Network:
(WNN) Oslo, NORWAY: Twenty-five Palestinian refugees who managed to escape persecution in Iraq and find their way to Norway they continue to live in harsh conditions after their asylum applications were refused. Some have deportation (‘forced relocation’) orders pending. The Norwegian immigration service based its decision with refusal of these Palestinians on a June 2012 report issued by Norway’s land information branch, stating that Iraq is now considered safe for their return.
The report quotes Mohamed Abu Bakr, charged with managing the file of the Palestinian refugees in Jordan, who said that “the living conditions for Palestinians in Iraq is now much better than it used to be back in 2003.” He added, “Palestinians today have the same citizenship rights as the Iraqis.”
Read it all. Those Socialist countries in Scandinavia sure are having a tough time of it these days as they are overrun with Muslim immigrants.
Through much blood and treasure we gave Iraq a democratically elected government. The country is safe now, Obama says so. Then why is the US still taking thousands of Iraqi refugees each year?
On the stats for US resettlement!
By the way, this reminds me, up until yesterday we could readily get the statistics for arriving refugees but the feds are now blocking the average citizen from finding out who is coming, from where, and where they are being resettled into the US. I used to at least be able to get to the statistics through the ‘Cultural Orientation Resource Center’ here. Now they re-direct readers to WRAPSnet and that government website is now password protected (when I get a minute I’ll apply and see if they reject me!).
For some rough idea of who we are bringing to the US, you might want to go to the President’s FY2013 Report to Congress here, which backs up Obama’s refugee wishlist for the fiscal year we are now in. (This report is not to be confused with the much more detailed ORR annual report to Congress that ORR is illegally withholding from Congress).
So, back to my question, if we gave Iraq a democratically elected government, why did we bring 9,388 Iraqis to the US in FY 2011 and 12,000 in 2012 (p. 50 of the President’s wish list for 2013.)?
While you are visiting that report, check out Page 58 where it’s noted that this program to bring on average less than 70,000 refugees to the US each year costs over ONE BILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS! And, that does not include all the welfare programs and education they are receiving in your city and state.
If you are wondering why I write so much about Socialist countries like Norway, Sweden and Denmark here at RRW, it’s because we can look to them to see our future. And, it isn’t pretty!
Will we one day have Palestinians camping on the streets of Washington demanding their “rights?”
