Obama Threatens States That Won’t Accept Syrian Migrants #ISIS

Daniel Greenfield

Obama recently decided to effectively suspend enforcement of immigration law and unilaterally legalize huge numbers of illegal aliens. But one of his minions is sending around letters threatening states who refuse to accept his army of Syrian migrants, at least 13% of which poll as supporting ISIS. That means out of his first 10,000 Syrians, over a thousand would be ISIS supporters.

States are required to provide “assistance and services … to refugees without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex or political position” according to the Refugee Act of 1980, the letter points out.

“States may not deny ORR-funded benefits and services to refugees based on a refugee’s country of origin or religious affiliation,” the letter states. “Accordingly, states may not deny ORR-funded benefits and services to Syrian refugees.” States that do not comply with these terms are subject to “enforcement action, including suspension or termination.”

According to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, discrimination based on race or origin is against the law in all programs that receive federally-funded assistance, the letter adds.

Of course immigration policy precisely discriminates against immigrants based on their country of origin or religious affiliation, since the latter is used to determine quotas, while the former is used to verify claims of religious persecution.

Obama is claiming that the Civil Rights Act applies to immigration policy at the State level, but not the Federal level.

This is a new level of lawlessness even for Obama.

The “political position” part is especially wonderful. If we took it literally, we wouldn’t be able to keep out Nazis, Communists and assorted other people with a political viewpoint we don’t like. How can we keep out a nice fellow who politically supports ISIS for that matter, as long as he doesn’t take any action to aid ISIS?

That’s what Obama is insisting. And that’s not even policy at the Federal level.

While “suspension or termination” sounds scary. Especially coming from an illegal regime operating without regard for the law, what it means is that funding to states for resettlement programs would be cut.

Since states are opting out anyway, they might as well opt out all the way.

Furthermore Obama is already in violation of the Refugee Act (what else is new) by failing to provide timely notification and information to states about incoming refugees. Obama even refused to provide that information to local law enforcement.

The Refugee Act also contains straightforward grounds for sending the fake Sunni Muslim refugees Obama is taking, instead of the real Christian and Yazidi refugees, back where they came from.

“The Attorney General shall not deport or return any alien Deportation. (other than an alien described in section 241(aX19)) to a country if the 8 use I25i. Attorney General determines that such alien’s life or freedom would be threatened in such country on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. “(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to einy alien if the Attorney General determines that— “(A) the alien ordered, incited, assisted, or otherwise participated in the persecution of any person on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion; “(B) the alien, having been convicted by a final judgment of a particularly serious crime, constitutes a danger to the community of the United States; “(C) there are serious reasons for considering that the alien has committed a serious nonpolitical crime outside the United States prior to the arrival of the alien in the United States; or “(D) there are reasonable grounds for regarding the alien as a danger to the security of the United States.”

Send the Sunni Muslims Al Qaeda and ISIS supporters back to Turkey. Take the real Christian and Yazidi refugees. It’s that simple.

In 1 Month, 8 “Refugees” in US in Court for Joining ISIS, Al Qaeda

Politicians and the media can’t stop bleating about all the “multi-layered vetting” that will keep any of the 10,000 Syrian migrants that Obama wants to bring to America in just one year from being terrorists. Even though polls show that between 13% to 30% of Syrian refugees support ISIS. (That’s at least 1,300 ISIS supporters entering America in just one year.)

Here’s how well refugee vetting works.

Senator Jeff Sessions has a list of some refugees in this country turned terrorists. It’s a recent list and there were 8 refugees indicted in one month.

In February 2015, Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim, a Somali refugee, was sentenced to prison for aiding Al-Shabaab, an affiliate of Al Qaeda, a section of which has switched its allegiance to ISIS.

In that same month, Abdullah Ramo Pazara, Armin Harcevic, Nihad Rosic, Sedina Unkic Hodzic and Ramiz Zijad Hodzic, Mediha Medy Salkicevic,  Jasminka Ramic, Bosnian refugees, were indicted for joining and aiding ISIS.

That’s just one month.

Then in April, Abdurahman Yasin Daud, a Somali refugee, was charged for aiding ISIS. As was Guled Ali Omar, another Somali refugee, whose brother had joined Al-Shabaab.

Maybe instead of taking in thousands of terrorist supporters whom we’ll later have to spy on and indict, we can just not take them and keep America safe. Because all that “multi-layered vetting” we keep hearing about doesn’t work.

Hillary, Islam, and Christianity

Hillary Clinton 22

 Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told us that “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant and have nothing to do with terrorism.”

Let me get the conventional qualifying statements out of the way.

I agree that we shouldn’t wage war on a religion (though she says we’re fighting an ideology, not people), and we should certainly not be unkind to our peaceful Muslim neighbors (the mosque close by my place seems peaceful enough).

However, if we misdiagnose the problem, we’ll come up with the wrong “solutions.”

As I read things, her misguided logic works out like this.

1. If you’re a true Muslim, then you are always peaceful and tolerant.

2. The attackers on 11/13, who claim to be Muslims, were not peaceful or tolerant — they were violent and intolerant (to say the least).

3. Therefore, they were not really Muslim, but falsely claimed to be.

In a possible case of projection, she apparently has in the back of her mind this hidden comparison:

1. If you’re a true Christian, then you’re always peaceful and tolerant.

2. Joe (who usually does not claim Christianity, but let’s say he does) shoots an abortion doctor.

3. Therefore, Joe is not really Christian, but falsely claims to be.

How do we sort out the complications? It’s not as hard as it first appears.

Let’s go back to the sources — which terrorists do, to justify their violence.

Islam’s institutional DNA is built on jihad or qital (only military war, not a “struggle”). For example, in an ironic twist, surah (chapter) 47 can be named either “Muhammad” or “Qital.” In other words, the numerous verses about warfare are clear and numerous. Another example: Muhammad yelled, “Allahu akbar!” when he attacked a (Jewish) city like Khaybar. Why wouldn’t Muslims today follow his example and shout the same thing?

On the other side, there simply are no military war verses in the Christian Scriptures, as if the church as the church should raise an army and force people to submit to Christ by the sword. Though Christians can join the secular military, they act in the name of the Constitution, not Christ.  They should never yell, “I kill in the name of Christ!”

Therefore, when ISIS sets up a caliphate, has imams, institutes shariah courts by which they sentence captives to beheadings (which follows the Quran), and wages perpetual war against the infidel West 9even by downing a Russian passenger jet), ISIS is following the Quran and Muhammad’s example. ISIS sees itself as a legitimate government that is true to original Islam, while other Islamic nations have compromised it. (Incidentally, ISIS sees its caliphate as more legitimate in the eyes of Allah than any government in the West, including the USA’s. President Hollande was perceptive when he declared war on ISIS because they declared war on his country, including aiding and abetting militant hit squads on 11/13. And this is why it is foolish of the president not to seek a war resolution in Congress or of Jen Psaki of the White House to say military might won’t end the war against ISIS. Wrong. It is entirely possible to defeat a government or caliphate holed up in a territory.)

The bottom line: The problem with Islam is that it doesn’t separate mosque from state.

Let’s get back to the silly hidden comparison that Hillary has in mind.

When Joe shoots an abortion doctor and does not let a court decide, but takes the law into his own hands, then he is not following the teachings of the Christian Scriptures, but violates them. According to these Scriptures, the fate of criminals are placed in the hands of the legal system, and those who refuse to convert are never threatened by the sword.

The biblical Scriptures separate the state, which can wield the sword, from the church, which may not institutionally wield the sword.

Mrs. Clinton, following the origins of the two religions enables you to tell the difference between them. Christianity is different in quality and kind.
