Invasion of Europe news…..
And, you can bet they would scream bloody murder if the Cameron government ever had the guts to put persecuted Christians at the head of the line.
BTW, Islamic Relief is working in the US to help Syrians get resettled in your states—Kentucky and Maryland that we know of (so far).
I wanted to learn more about the new UK Director of Islamic Relief, Imran Madden. I didn’t find much, but am posting this 2012 Al Jazeera interview I found informative…..a bit off-topic!
Here is the surprising (not!) news from Islamic Relief (UK must dramatically accelerate Syrian resettlement):
The new UK Director of Islamic Relief will use his speech in a fringe debate at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester to urge the Government to inject greater urgency into resettling Syrian refugees in the UK and leave ‘no diplomatic stone unturned’ in the search for a lasting peace in Syria.
At a conference fringe debate organised by Islamic Relief and World Vision (details in Notes to Editors along with details of separate Muslim Charities Forum fringe event), Imran Madden will speak alongside the Minister of State for International Development, Desmond Swayne MP, to highlight the enormous human cost of forgotten crises around the world – and the Syrian conflict in particular.
They recommend 5 prescriptions for the crisis, this is #5:
A dramatic acceleration of planned refugee resettlement in the UK.
Related: First Syrians headed to Northern Ireland, here. They will be mostly Muslims as the UK is working with the UNHCR to pick its refugees.
About the video (and maybe too much in the weeds for most readers!): I’ve been following the Rohingya refugee issue for nearly eight years. In the most recent years, the reason for the original outbreak in the latest wave of violence in Burma (Myanmar) which broke out when three Rohingya Muslim men raped a Buddhist woman, has been long forgotten. I have been so annoyed over the years to see that original spark for the latest violence between the ethnic groups expunged from media coverage. The media and humanitarian agitators (including the OIC) have made it look like the Rohingya were pure as the driven snow.
I was thus surprised to see this 2012 Al Jazeera piece (an interview with Imran Madden) that actually does mention the rape that started it all.
For Hillary watchers out there, one of the few foreign policy success stories that Hillary was earlier mentioning was supposedly bringing some democracy to Burma. She even sent the ‘Podesta Group’ there to help shore-up her legacy. Dead silence now as Burma is still in internal conflict.
If you are interested in the Rohingya issue we have enough posts here that you could write a book (see Rohingya Reports category).
