Did you ever wonder why you never see an Islamic terror attack in Japan? It is because they take almost no immigrants especially almost zero refugees.
I think Japan is on the right track and have said so over the last 10 years whenever there is a new flurry of pressure from the UN and the Human Rights Industrial Complex (HRIC) on the country that wants to maintain its unique culture and ethnic homogeneity!
However, it is interesting that immediately after I just wrote about Japanese-Americans joining CAIR to bad-mouth America (here) along comes this news this morning.
Someone should have asked that panel: why doesn’t Japan take Muslim refugees?
TOKYO (Reuters) – The U.N. refugee agency has urged Japan to resettle more asylum seekers, its chief said on Monday, pressuring the country to help solve a global crisis after giving refugee status to just three people in the first half of the year.
Japan is one of the developed world’s least welcoming countries for asylum seekers.
It accepted 28 in 2016, despite applications from a record 10,091 people.
It has since 2008 given home to limited numbers of refugees through a so-called third-country resettlement scheme, resettling a total of 152 people – mostly ethnic Karen people from Myanmar living in Thai and Malaysian camps.
“That program is very small, about 20-30 refugees a year,” U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi told a news conference in Tokyo. “I have asked the government to consider whether it could be expanded.”
Japan’s reluctance to accept refugees mirrors a wider caution towards immigration in a nation where many pride themselves on cultural and ethnic homogeneity.
You will see that Grandi is a bit miffed because Japan isn’t donating as many millions as they did in the past to the UNHCR. Would you donate if you were harangued annually by the UN and the HRIC.
See my previous posts on Japan, here. LOL! You could call the country a “pocket of resistance.”
