Lutherans call for 200,000 refugees to be admitted to US in 2016 including 100,000 Syrians

A reader has just alerted us to yet another federal refugee contractor, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), one-upping the other two contractors we have reported on, here and here both demanding that Obama admit 65,000 Syrians in FY2016.  We thought those were outrageous demands!

Linda Hartke, CEO of LIRS, sent out the urgent e-mail to their members. LIRS is approximately 97% funded with your tax dollars!

But get this…..
LIRS wants 100,000 Syrians!  Either they are completely insane or they know Obama is on the edge and needs a little push! Maybe if they say 100,000, Obama will settle for 65,000!
Here is what our reader says was in his e-mail alert:

“Refugees fleeing Syria need you.

I am asking you to join us with three simple actions that can make a real difference:

Act – In response to this global refugee crisis, the largest since World War II, you can urge the President and Congress to increase the annual refugee admissions goal, or “Presidential Determination” from the 2015 number of 70,000 to 200,000 for 2016 and prioritize receiving 100,000 Syrian refugees in this number.

Click here to send to urge President Obama and Congress to increase the number of refugees resettled this year and to prioritize Syrians.

We’ve been telling you about the importance of the timing on all this right now with the “Presidential Determination” due to be sent to Congress for “consultation” within a couple of weeks.  The escalating migrant crisis in Europe isn’t helping either.
This will be a great test for the Republicans running Congress—will they once again rubber stamp what Obama wants?

Frontpage magazine: What we are seeing in Europe is the hijra

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch has penned an excellent piece describing how what we are seeing in Europe is not a spontaneous wave of humanity simply looking for a better life, but in fact we are seeing the hijra—emigration for the cause of Allah.

Is the hijra coming to America? I think it is already here and I wrote about it. (Published by the Center for Security Policy and available at Amazon)

Remember how former Libyan leader Col. Gaddafi famously said Europe would be conquered:

We have 50 million Muslims in Europe. There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe—without swords, without guns, without conquest—will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades.

Hundreds of thousands more are on the way.  Will it take a “few decades” or will one decade effectively finish western civilization in Europe as we know it?
Spencer (emphasis is mine):

Approximately 104,460 asylum seekers arrived in Germany during the month of August, setting a new record. That makes 413,535 registered refugees and migrants coming to Germany in 2015 so far. The country expects a total of around 800,000 people to seek asylum in Germany this year. And that’s just Germany. The entire continent of Europe is being inundated with refugees at a rate unprecedented in world history. This is no longer just a “refugee crisis.” This is a hijrah.

Hijrah, or jihad by emigration, is, according to Islamic tradition, the migration or journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, later renamed by him to Medina, in the year 622 CE. It was after the hijrah that Muhammad for the first time became not just a preacher of religious ideas, but a political and military leader. That was what occasioned his new “revelations” exhorting his followers to commit violence against unbelievers. Significantly, the Islamic calendar counts the hijrah, not Muhammad’s birth or the occasion of his first “revelation,” as the beginning of Islam, implying that Islam is not fully itself without a political and military component.

To emigrate in the cause of Allah – that is, to move to a new land in order to bring Islam there, is considered in Islam to be a highly meritorious act. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance,” says the Qur’an. “And whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” (4:100) The exalted status of such emigrants led a British jihad group that won notoriety (and a shutdown by the government) a few years ago for celebrating 9/11 to call itself Al-Muhajiroun: The Emigrants.

And now a hijrah of a much greater magnitude is upon us.

There is much more, continue reading.   Spencer discusses how ISIS actually promoted the hijra we are watching now with great trepidation.

National Welcoming Week part of PR campaign to soften public up for 65,000 Syrians

I don’t think it is any coincidence that community organizers at Welcoming America have chosen mid September to put on “welcoming” events across the country.  They know that this is the month when Obama will tell Congress how many refugees will be admitted in FY2016 which begins October 1st.

Red Green axis
In his book describing the agenda to erase America, James Simpson goes into greater detail about the insidious community organizers at ‘Welcoming America.’

As we have been writing ad nauseum over the last few days, the federal contractors and 14 US Senators (we call them the Senate Jihad Caucus!) want an emergency plan from Obama to open our normal refugee flow of 70,000 (all nationalities) and add another 65,000 Syrians nearly doubling our usual refugee admissions for the year.

You better check out this public relations plan, here at Welcoming America (hat tip: Dick).

Find an event near you during Welcoming Week. Maybe you will find a way to counter the impact—perhaps letters to the editor in your local paper about the strain of bringing in over 100,000 impoverished and culturally diverse people will have on your local communities.
Welcoming America says,

During the week of September 12-20, 2015, Welcoming America and its partners across the country will host National Welcoming Week, a nationwide event that will highlight the contributions of immigrants to American communities. Throughout the country, these events will bring together immigrants and U.S.-born community members in a spirit of unity.

This is all part of Obama’s plan to change America by colonizing your towns and cities with third world immigrants.
I first learned about Welcoming America in June of 2013. Originally funded with start-up money from one of George Soros many groups, they also receive grant money from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (from you that is!).  We were told at that meeting in Lancaster, PA that Welcoming America had been hired by the feds to try to push back against growing “pockets of resistance” (their words!) where citizens were beginning to question the wisdom of bringing more poverty to America.
James Simpson in his book, ‘Red-Green Axis—Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to erase America’goes into greater detail about the players and the funders involved with Welcoming America.

UN wants Europe to take 200,000 permanent refugees; Poland says stop the illegal flow first! UK buckles!

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

Former head of Socialists International, UNHCR Antonio Guterres is calling the shots for Europe AND America!

As EU leaders meet today to discuss the migrant crisis overwhelming Europe, the UN ups the number of refugees it is demanding that European countries permanently resettle.
By the way, in 2014 the UN was demanding that all western countries (not Gulf Arab states and not communist Russia or China!) take 130,000 permanent Syrian refugees.
That is how the number 65,000! for America came to be—the UN and the US resettlement contractors said that since the US takes half of the refugees from around the world, our SHARE is 65,000!
Using that logic, since the UN is now upping the number are we expected to take 100,000?
Here is the latest at Deutsche Welle:

The United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Refugees has called for up to 200,000 refugees to be shared across the European Union. Various meetings are due to be held across the EU to discuss the crisis.

Antonio Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said on Friday that EU member states would be bound to the “mass relocation program.”

Polish Foreign Minister wisely says—stop the flow!

Poland’s Grzegorz Schetyna says STOP the “illegal migration” first!

Former Communist block countries seem to get it!
There is really no sense discussing the numbers to be distributed (or forced on each European state) when there is no will to stop the invasion!
Remember Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told European leaders months ago that they needed to (safely) turn boats back to where they were launched!  No effort was ever made!  This present crisis could have been averted had EU leaders followed Abbott’s advice back in April.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says this is Germany’s problem apparently a reference to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s invitation to the Syrians.
Deutsche Welle quotes Poland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Grzegorz Schetyna near the end of the story.  Clearly Schetyna believes most of the illegal aliens are ‘economic migrants’ and not truly persecuted refugees.

Poland warned on Friday that the EU must tackle the causes behind the huge migrant influx or risk being inundated with millions of refugees.

“The scale of the migration is enormous, so we can’t focus – I’m talking about the whole of Europe – on allocating illegal migrants without fighting the causes [of their arrival],” Schetyna told private Radio Zet.

“We have to think of how to stop the illegal migration. Otherwise [we may have] soon have 3-4 million economic refugees,” he added.

By the way, Poland has taken some Christian Syrians who do not pose a threat to the largely Catholic country.

Meanwhile the UK is caving.  

Previously the Cameron government had been holding firm and not allowing itself to be bullied into taking large numbers of Syrian refugees.  But, here Cameron buckles to pressure.  From The Guardian (hat tip: Joanne).

Sicily: Elderly couple murdered by African refugee; some locals take revenge

You’ve probably seen the news of the grisly murders of an elderly husband and wife on Sicily.  The wife, 70 years old, is believed to have been sexually assaulted before being thrown off a balcony to her death.  This is an update.

Sicily murdered
I don’t think we even have to say ‘alleged’ murderer in this case. Mamadou Kamara was wearing clothes he stole from the victims and had his own bloody trousers in his possession .

The refugee, Mamadou Kamara, from the Ivory Coast had arrived in Italy on one of the many migrant boats invading Europe from Libya (too bad his boat was one of the successful ones).  Don’t forget, Ms. Hillary played a role in destabilizing Libya.
Seems the latest news is that several Sicilian youths have been arrested for ruffing up some other African refugees in what is being described as retribution.
From International Business Times.

The murdered couple’s daughter pointedly told politicians to stay away from the funeral.

Two migrants have been assaulted and robbed by a gang of Sicilian youths in what police fear is a retribution attack for the murder of two pensioners, allegedly at the hands of a would-be refugee, in the small town of Palagonia.

Tensions have soared in the small farming community, located near Catania, after 18-year-old Ivorian Mamadou Kamara, who was staying at the nearby Mineo reception camp for migrants, was arrested over the murder of Vincenzo Solano, 68, and his wife Mercedes Ibanez, 70.

Hundreds of people flocked a local church for the funerals of the couple, who police believe were killed during a robbery gone wrong. Kamara is accused of slashing Solano’s throat before throwing Ibanez to her death from a balcony. Police said an initial forensics examination suggest she was also sexually abused.

Ivory coast
Not just Syrians swarming Europe. Killer is from the Ivory Coast.

Detectives were quick in arresting Kamara, who arrived in Italy on a boat from Libya in June and asked for asylum. Evidence against him appears crushing. He was stopped during a routine control at the Cara Mineo a former US military base immersed in orange groves turned into Europe’s largest migrant holding camp, hosting 3,200 people from Eritrea, Sudan, Nigeria, Gambia, Liberia, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan and elsewhere.

A search of his bag revealed a video camera, a mobile phone, a PC, a gold chain and other goods all belonging to the murdered couple. The bag also contained a pair of blood-stained trousers, which Kamara sported in pictures retrieved by his mobile phone. At the time of the arrest he was wearing clothes taken from the victims’ wardrobe.

Kamara denies the accusations, claiming he found the bag abandoned in a garbage can off a street.

Solano’s daughter, Rosita, a 46-year-old school teacher, said she blames the government for the murder. “They let these migrants come here and they do what they want, including burgling and killing,” she said, adding that politicians were not welcome at the funerals.

So now Italy gets to keep this killer in prison for the rest of his life at taxpayer expense?  (I doubt they have the death penalty in Italy.)
