So where is Rand?
Daniel Greenfield writing at Frontpage magazine directs us to a brief news story from Presidential candidate Rand Paul’s home town.
Here is Greenfield:
Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky, the latest front in the Sunni – Shiite unholy war tearing apart the Middle East.
He then directs us to this news story about how a Shia Muslim claims he was assaulted by a Sunni Muslim in a dispute about their religious beliefs.
Then Greenfield closes with this:
Now how many Sunnis and Shiites do you need for there to be enough critical mass for these conflicts to turn violent?
Why is this so interesting to me?
The article does not tell us the nationalities of the two who scuffled, but I will bet a buck they were both Iraqis because we know many Iraqis have been resettled in Kentucky including those two refugee terrorists arrested in Bowling Green in 2011, on trial here in 2012.
At that time there was a glimmer of hope for Senator Rand Paul on this issue as he was very vocal in asking: Why are we bringing so many Iraqis to the US? See this post! I was originally thrilled!
Now he has completely shut up on the issue!
By the way, Kentucky is an important refugee resettlement state and neither Senator Mitch McConnell or Senator Paul say a word about it.
The US State Department is admitting almost equal numbers of Shiite and Sunni Iraqis to the US, so you can expect more conflicts ahead! Is that insane or what!
Again, we don’t know if these two Bowling Green squabblers are Iraqis, but this (below) will give you some idea of our foolishness. I couldn’t get the State Department data base to open just now, but found my notes from a search I did at the beginning of March.
From 1/1/14 to 2/28/15 (a little over a year) we admitted 22,446 Iraqis to your towns and cities. The State Department data breaks them out by religion as follows:
Moslem (that is how they spell it): 351
Moslem Shiite: 7,747
Moslem Suni: 9,176
So the Muslims totaled: 17,274
All the other religions, or no religion accounted for the remaining 5,172 (23%).
So, is this kerfuffle in Kentucky the tip of the iceberg? We’ll see!
See our Kentucky archive here, and don’t miss this post about the suspicious donation (for Syrian refugees) to a contractor from a Muslim “charity.” See also Kentucky mosques cropping-up due to growing Muslim refugee population.
Make this issue (immigration and national security) a top concern for 2016 Presidential candidates!
If you have an opportunity to meet candidates ask them what their position is on refugee resettlement (look for a deer-in-the-headlights look!).
See NumbersUSA scorecard, here. Paul has an abysmal D+ on immigration and jobs.
About the photo: One of the earliest important stories we ever wrote nearly 8 years ago was about Grover Norquist lobbying for large numbers of Iraqi refugees to be resettled in the US. And, see Grover here with RINO pals (including Jeb Bush) just last year urging the GOP to support the idea of more refugees coming to America! Grover has been spreading the lie that Ronald Reagan signed the Refugee Act of 1980 into law. He is wrong. It was outgoing President Jimmy Carter who is responsible.
