We’re covering refugees again, but this time it doesn’t have to do with crappy Europe. The following takes place in the US, where we’ve accepted thousands of Syrian refugees. One might guess the Syrian migrant population is largely Muslim, but not practically exclusively Muslim. Right? Well the numbers tell a different story…
The United States has accepted 10,801 Syrian refugees, of whom 56 are Christian. That is to say, one-half of 1 percent. 10 percent of all Syrians are Christian, which would mean 2.2 million Christians. Somewhere between a half million and a million Syrian Christians have fled Syria [but] the United States has accepted 56.
Christians get the fuzzy end of the lollipop when it comes to living in the Middle East. Much like most non-Muslims, women and children… They’re violently persecuted for their beliefs, which makes them pretty standard as refugees (see Tolerance: In Egypt, Elderly Christian Woman Publicly Stripped and Paraded Through Streets). So this disparity? A bit odd…
Matthew Clark, senior counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) [said] “[The Obama administration has] not prioritized Christians and it appears they have actually deprioritized them, put them back of the line and made them an afterthought.”
Experts say another reason for the lack of Christians… is the makeup of the camps. Christians in the main United Nations refugee camp in Jordan are subject to persecution, they say, and so flee the camps, meaning they are not included in the refugees referred to the U.S. by the U.N.
Ah. A few things here: Firstly, political correctness is leading the charge. Can’t make it look like Christians are getting special treatment, can we? Ergo abolish all preferential placement! Just kidding. Give said special treatment to Muslims instead… Because that’s a sound strategy, right? Just ask Europe.
Secondly, the UN. Let’s talk about what the UN actually is. Remember that scene in Return of the Jedi where Jabba and his henchmen hover craft on over to the Pit of Sarlacc? It’s the sinking pit with tentacles. And weirdly animated teeth, if you’re watching the digitally remastered version that George Lucas couldn’t leave well enough alone. Right. The UN birthed that monster.
The UN meddles in the business of other countries. Sometimes that meddling is passed off as “humanitarianism.” Other times it simply interferes where it shouldn’t. For instance, the “help” the UN offers these refugees? Does more harm than good by packing them all together like a body pride feminists at a free offering of Crispy Cremes. Making Christians – and other non-Muslims – easier targets. But if those refugees ever want to get to a safe, non-Islamic zone like the US, they have to go through the UN. And to be fair…
some 50 of them did. After undergoing rapey refugee camps and bureaucracy.
Should we blindly accept refugees from any country? That’s a debatable subject. But if we accept refugees because they’re in danger, does it not stand to reason that displaced non-Muslims are in the most danger? Christians included? Especially considering the punishment of apostasy in Islam is death? #NotAllNonMulsimsCanLiveInIslam
Then again, the above assumes there’s a tangible purpose to taking in refugees. Besides it being an empty political gesture at best. A terrorist trojan horse… a more likely worse.
Hey, have you seen our latest show? If not, I’ve conveniently dropped it here for you. Caring.
