Syrian Refugees Not Welcome!

On the evening of 13 November 2015, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks commenced in Paris, France—They consisted of mass shootings, suicide bombings, and hostage-taking.

The death toll currently as of right this very moment sits at 129, 340 injured many of them critically injured.

Why and who were the savages that so ruthlessly, senselessly and without cause took the lives of innocent individuals? ISIS took responsibility, boasted that it had members gain entry into France by posing as Syrian Refugees.  

As of today 27 US state Governors have stated they will not take refugees in which by the way is really quite absurd. States don’t really get a choice as to whether or not they take in refugees.

President Obama has explicit statutory authorization to accept foreign refugees into the United States. Under the Refugee Act of 1980,

The president may admit refugees who face “persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion” into the United States, and the president’s power to do so is particularly robust if they determine that an “unforeseen emergency refugee situation” such as the Syrian refugee crisis exists.

To further drive that point home and to remind everyone, that in Arizona v. the United States, Arizona lost. Not to mention, the US stands to lose a lot by refusing asylum to refugees of war torn nations. States also have much to lose by refusing refugees in terms of Federal funding. Try to tax your citizens more to offset the loss of Federal funds and let’s see where that gets everyone. Needless to say, the Refugee Act of 1980  has given President Obama broad discretion to allow refugees to be admitted into the United States. States must yield to that act.

Islamic-State-IP

It’s pretty common knowledge that the terror organisation known as the Islamic State has killed far more Muslims than Christians, Westerners, or minorities during its existence.

What about our home grown terrorists? Or mass shooters who are basically home grown terrorists of a different breed from the likes of ISIS?

Who thinks we don’t already have terrorists hiding out in this country waiting to kill again? We would be kidding ourselves if we thought we are safe.

By refusing a refugee access to safety because of ISIS we condemn an entire group of people to either die or join a cause they don’t believe in just so that they can live…what kind of sense does that make?

What’s more, we continue to bomb the shit out of ISIS which is great right? Yet by shutting our borders and doors to refugees where do you think ISIS is going to turn in order to get new recruits to man it’s needed growing army?  

We already know that ISIS preys on the disadvantaged, the poor, the desperate, the shunned by society and now the world.  If it were me in charge of an army and I wanted to dominate, I would have snuck some of my guys in as refugees, knowing that it would upset the delicate balance of taking in refugees.

It serves multiple purposes, they kill and get attention again because of the scale of coordinated effort involved in the mass attacks and countries will stop letting some of the refugees in long enough for someone to come in and recruit the refugees.

If you are looking carefully at terrorist organizations they test the fence, find a weakness and then prey on it, exploit it, and take full advantage of our response to the damage they caused.

The world’s weakness is taking in refugees from war torn countries. We can’t stand to see them suffer and consider it inhumane to not offer a safe home. ISIS saw a weakness and took advantage of it and because of that people are going to shun refugees which will allow terrorist groups to exploit those refugees and brainwash them into joining the terrorist cause.

So what’s the answer?

Before anyone says that we should close our borders and not allow any immigrants in, please allow for me to take this moment to kindly and with as much grace as I can muster, ask that you  STFU! Our ancestors stole, yes murdered in fact quite a few Native American’s so that they could steal this country from it’s rightful caretakers the Native American’s. We didn’t need it, we just desired it and killed innocent people so as to take it from them.

We then subsequently instead of becoming the caretakers, have managed to rape and violate in every possible way the land on which we all now comfortably reside upon within the US.  

We could all throw up our hands and walk away from the situation, leave refugees where they are, leave war torn nations to fight it or figure it out themselves. Nato could invoke Article 5, or nations could resume allowing refugees in but with strict and stringent rules and guidelines such as ankle monitoring, check in’s, etc.

What we should not do is turn our backs on those in need because of a group of terrorists who simply exposed a weakness in the system. We can simply find a safe and realistic solution for allowing refugees in without imprisoning them. It’s not right to condemn them to death because of ISIS.

    • That’s a really good and fair question Duke. I clearly did not share my thoughts above about what I personally believe needs to happen with these terrorist groups.

      I don’t like hate, I don’t agree with killing in the name of hate or because someone has a different belief system than I do. I do however believe in benefiting all of mankind.

      We are not benefiting any of mankind when we sit around idly watching terrorists kill innocent people. We are not benefiting mankind when we allow terrorist groups to cause and inflict harm, suffering and pain to others. That is inhumane.

      The fact is that terrorist groups are not going to sit down and have a civil conversation over tea in a suit and tie and negotiate a peace treaty the US or any nation. They can’t be trusted because they lack the ability to respect life they would turn on one another if given the chance. They are made to hate and kill. They say for religious reasons but the truth is they just like killing.

      Not all refugees are terrorists, not all Muslims are terrorists and we do mankind a disservice by assuming these groups of individuals are equal to terrorists because that is what a terrorist looks like, came from, dresses like.

      I strongly and firmly believe that Article 5 should be invoked and it should be invoked today and that we along with our allies go to war on terrorism instead of just making the statement that we are at war with terrorism. In other words, do what you say you are already doing, take action. Swift, aggressive and decisive action. Wipe terrorists out.

      It is much easier said that done I’m sure that you will agree. Stop putting all of our focus on gathering intel and take swift action. Sure let intelligence try to find the leaders of these groups, but let the military do what its made to do.

      Russia has already set a leading example by sending in planes to bomb the shit out of known terrorist locations right after the attacks in Paris. Paris took swift action to locate leaders and others involved in the attacks. Isn’t time that we all stood together for the common good of man? Our leaders in the US are not showing us a shining example of leading when all they want to do is sit back argue over letting refugees in and watch the suffering of others float by as if we are untouchable from it. Shut our borders, stick our noses in the air and stand our ground saying that no we won’t go to war yet at the end of the day we demand a say in trade with other other nations, we want our share of oil from the middle east, we want to be a part of global decisions. What a joke right?

      The short answer is invoke Article 5, join our allies and go to war on terrorism. Point blank, it’s the only way.
