Syrian refugees admitted into US since Paris jihad murders in November: 525 Muslims, 1 Christian

When Obama says there will be no religious test for migrants and refugees, he is willfully lying. There already is.

Syrian refugees admitted into US since Paris jihad murders in November: 525 Muslims, 1 Christian (thanks to Robert Spencer):

Relax, kaffir. What could possibly go wrong? Barack Obama and John Kerry have magic powers that shelter them from the consequences of their actions. They need not be concerned about the fact that last February, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister recently said that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have recently come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.

So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe, and now the U.S. as well? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.” We are waiting in the U.S. as well.


“Syrian Refugees Admitted Since Paris Attacks: 525 Muslims, 1 Christian,” by Patrick Goodenough, CNS News, January 25, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

( – The United States has admitted 526 Syrian refugees since Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists attacked Paris last November, and just one (less than 0.2 percent) is a Christian.

Sunni Muslims account for 512 (97.3 percent) of the 526 Syrian refugees approved for resettlement in the U.S. since the Nov. 13 attacks, which prompted fresh concerns that terrorists could use refugee admission programs to enter Western countries.

The remaining 13 comprise three Shi’ites and ten refugees identified as “Moslem,” according to data from the State Department Refugee Processing Center.

The lopsided proportion of Sunni Muslims to Christians admitted since Paris largely mirrors that since the beginning of fiscal year 2016:  Over that period, which began Oct. 1, 817 Syrian refugees have been admitted, of whom six (0.7 percent) are Christians and 798 (97.6 percent) are Sunnis.

Looking further back, of the 2,690 Syrian refugees admitted into the U.S. since the civil war started in March 2011, 54 (2.0 percent) are Christians and 2,517 (93.5 percent) are Sunni Muslims. (The remainder are other minorities, including Shi’ites, heterodox Muslims, Zoroastrians and atheists.)

In contrast to those Christian/Sunni ratios – 0.19 percent/97.3 percent since the Paris attacks; 0.7 percent/97.6 percent in FY 2016; and 2.0 percent/93.5 percent since the conflict began – Christians account for an estimated 10 percent of the Syrian population, and Sunnis for an estimated 74 percent.

Whether fleeing from the Assad regime, ISIS, other opposition groups, airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition or by the regime-supporting Russians, or from violence and collapsing services and infrastructure in general, more than 4.5 million Syrians have fled their homeland since the civil war began and are registered with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

President Obama has pledged to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees during FY 2016.

Administration officials have said that while persecution on the grounds of religion is one of five grounds for determining whether an applicant should be granted refugee status, the U.S. admission program does not and should not prioritize one religion over another.

(The criteria, as per the 1951 Refugee Convention, are persecution for reasons of religion, race, nationality, political opinion or membership of a particular social group.)

One senior State Department official told lawmakers last month that Christians were underrepresented among U.S. Syria refugee admissions because fewer Christians were leaving – because they feel safe (in some cases because they support the Assad regime).

However, the international Christian charity Barnabas Fund estimates that some 600,000 Syrian Christians have fled their homes so far.

In a recent op-ed in a British daily George Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury – the titular head of the world’s Anglicans/Episcopalians – decried the response from Western governments and churches to the targeting of Christians in particular at the hands of ISIS.

“So serious is the problem that you might expect the nations of the West would come to the rescue of these historic Christian communities, or that the Church would be demanding the world act now,” he wrote. “Far from it.”

Carey went on to quote Barnabas Fund’s observation that “[w]hile displaced Muslims may find safety in neighboring areas controlled by their own faction and armed forces, or escape to friendly areas, Christians do not have these options.”

He urged British Prime Minister David Cameron Carey [sic] to find ways to admit “a good number of Christian Syrians” among refugees to be allowed to resettle in Britain. Cameron has pledged to welcome up to 20,000 Syrian refugees over five years.

The Australian government, meanwhile, pledged last September to prioritize among 12,000 Syrian refugees it will take in “those most in need – the women, children and families of persecuted minorities.”

Australian Muslim groups complained, but the government is unrepentant. Immigration Minister Peter Dutton last week reiterated that persecuted minorities will be prioritized, saying that while the U.N. can make referrals Australia will ultimately decide who to accept….

    Islam has no place in a civilized democratic society. It’s teaching are primitive and incompatible with western civilization. Just look at the world. It is a scourge to the earth. Speak up before it’s too late.

    No immigration, no tolerance, no diversity. We want peace, security, and liberty.

    We can no longer afford to “split the pot” with everyone who wants a piece, especially with “refugees” from the Middle East. It’s too risky. America is struggling enough as it is. Most of us are making below living wage and just had our health insurance forcefully taken away. I make 60k per year and my healthcare is up to $400 per month; compare this to my $25/month car insurance (from Insurance Panda) or my $10/month renters insurance. Both private enterprise (take note, Obama). Do we really want our tax dollars aiding these terrorists?

    It’s not racist or islamophobia to want to live in a free nation established on Christian values and anyone that says so is bigoted against you. When they get the majority you can guarantee they will force sharia law upon you. That is what they are taught.

    Was almost 5 Christians, but only one still had a head.

    Why couldn’t they have gone to Malaysia.. it’s closer to Syria and it’s a nice muslim country so they’ll feel right at home.

    This is nothing but an invasion force entering by stealth.

    Why must Western nations pledge to help them out? They are not our friends. If they are missing an arm or leg because they were hurt as a result of the war, I’d understand… but all of them look fighting fit, ready to rape and plunder.

    I wish there could be a condition… you wanna come as a refugee to the US… we will chop off one hand, and one foot… so that it will be harder for you to rape our women. And oh.. we will need one eye. Welcome!

      Where are all the women and children? All refugee crisis situations in history have been composed primarily of women and children. Yet, these turds show up, well fed with smart phones, sneakers, and erect penises. Incredible.

      • Hans

        Exactly as planned by Adolf Merkel.

        • joe1429

          Hussein is the first planner, that is why he didnt want a no fly zone over syria, which makes the most sense, and is easy to do!! It is all going as hussein has planned .. to integrate europe with his muzrats!

  • long in the tooth

    Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, still have not taken a single rapefugee? Kicking back on their Islamic @sses and letting the West handle it all?

    • Shafiq Islam

      The states you mention are US “allies” and also the leading sources of funding for many jihadist groups, as well as sponsors of the mosques and madrasas that spread radical Muslim beliefs throughout the world. They are smiling as they let their brethren, including sleeper terrorists, infiltrate dar al harb and subvert Judeo-Christian culture. The leaders of those states have bought off your leaders.

      • farflung

        Going to put you on the short leash, means I do not trust you nor will I ever trust you, however as long as your posts are substance and correct and do not show a pattern, which is becoming more apparent. Breath easy for a while.

          Who are you?

            Why, he’s a piece of self-propelled garbage.
            That’s what he is.

            Lol!!! He off his meds!!

        • disqus_yDrMDcCDka

          I already warned you to leave Shafig alone you scum-ridden piece of filth.
          This is what is in store for you and your kind if you ever get caught in my town:

    • Mahou Shoujo

      They are smarter than Americans, they know what muslims are like, they do not want the associated ignorant violence that comes with illiterates.

    • Luigi Valentino

      Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE WANT the refugees to come here so that Islam can be globally spread. If we do not start extermination of ALL Muslims the world will be taken over by Muslims within 20 years.

    • joe1429

      Yes, true. One reason is thr rapugees want the welfare in eu countries. They would have to work in the mideast countries, or starve.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    If Americans did not want massive numbers of muslim colonists, they would not have them. Canadians with more than a parking ticket on their records are denied entry to the United States, muslims with smoking guns are welcome. Someone has got to tell America to grab a brain, please do so.

  • Ghost Writer

    The term “refugee” is a deceit. They are invading migrants. Why those European countries allow them to enter is beyond me. Is it stupidity or is it a sinister agenda?
    We now have the same developing problem in America. With Obama as president I can understand why.

    • Iamnumber6

      This is migratory Jihad.

    • MattBracken

      Once you figure out he’s a traitor, it all makes sense.

    • joe1429

      They have to according to agreements with the EU. Just like the insane open borders policy. If any eu country does not take in the muzrats or closes its borders for protection, they will be expelled from eu. Until some of the EU countries band together, and demand changes, the whole eu titanic is drowning together in rapugee scum!!!

  • FightForUrRight/HispanicCons

    Let’s say they are truly refugees, and not jihadist, but now we have the issue that their men believe that it’s OK to RAPE or women. They say it’s to teach them a lesson in modesty

    • joe1429

      Yes but we got 2 friends here waiting for them… Smith and Weson!

      • FightForUrRight/HispanicCons

        Not If President Obama has his way

  • farflung

    Ah the Muslim Hussein, the seditious traitor and queer with aids is pulling strings to bring in as many of these scum goat herders, Most are Jihadis. Counting the days until this scum is gone from the Oval Office and thrown to the dump heap of history.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Islam is lies, the white mosque is the biggest pen of islam in America.

  • durabo

    I suggest the IslamoTangos invited by Sheikh Hussein al-Obamastan and the Guacamolians who are invading us through the southern border start jogging and exercising, because when TSHTF, they will be running away from us at full speed!

  • christian vidal

    you just admitted 525 human bombs that’s all.

  • Keith

    “Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have recently come to Europe claiming to be fleeing
    the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.”
    And here I was thinking that Syria was the most religously and ethnically diverse and most densely populated country in the world.
    Sarc off!!!!

  • flamengo1265

    What was the man/woman ratio?

  • karl59

    Every day Obama stays in office, the closer America comes
    to a second American Revolution!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • joe1429

    The syrian christians need to pretend to be muzrats.. to get into the US under hussein!!
