Uruguay to resettle 120 Syrian Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 15, 2014

Isn’t it fortuitous that the Obama Administration just now sent six Guantanamo Bay former Islamic fighters to Uruguay as refugees.  The new Syrian refugee arrivals will have skilled Muslim political leaders upon arrival.  Wow! Uruguay is so lucky—a “conservative” Islamic seed community growing right there!  (just like Australia).

I don’t know about mosques in Montevideo, but they do like their tango. Will those “conservative” Syrians be entertained?

From The Gulf Time:

The Syrian teen, driven from his home by his country’s civil war, swipes across the world on a mobile phone map, over China and the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean. He searches until finally he finds Uruguay.

For 19-year-old Ahmad Aloun and his family, the country some 12,000 kilometres away soon will become home. The tree-lined boulevards of Montevideo might as well be on another planet.

Uruguay has offered to accept 120 refugees from Syria’s civil war, the Alouns among them. It’s a small number compared to the three million Syrians who have fled the conflict, now in its fourth year, crowded into overwhelmed neighbouring countries or who tried to reach Europe.

[….]

Two years after they fled Syria, the UN refugee agency said the Alouns could resettle in Uruguay, offering them Spanish lessons, free health care and schooling for the children.

Mohammed Aloun hasn’t given much thought to how his conservative Muslim family will fit in. He’s unsure if there are mosques in Uruguay.   [They soon will have mosques, if they don’t already, and everything that goes with it—ed]

The Hijra (the migration) is proceeding full steam ahead.

So where might those Syrians be going?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 12, 2014

Yesterday we learned that the Obama Administration committed the United States to take 9,000 Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees  in FY 2015 which is already two months underway, and place them throughout America at some of their 180 cities where federal contractors are waiting to sign them up for social services, give them employment counseling, take care of their health needs and sign the children up for school.

Here is a map of where they could be placed.  Is your city on it?

 

See the legend on the right hand side of the map.  Those are the initials for the nine major contractors:

What you should do is go to this list of federal refugee contractors (listed by city) and call them.  And, by the way, don’t assume that if your city doesn’t have a colored dot you are off the hook.  They can place them within a hundred miles of a contractor’s office.  When you call, ask how many Syrians are coming to your town?  Then contact your local newspaper, your local elected officials and your representatives in Washington and let them know what you think!

Direct your ire at refuge contractors and elected officials at all levels of government, not at the refugees who are only taking advantage of a good deal.

Please send us anything you learn and send links to news stories about their arrival.

Obama Administration Office for Civil Rights pounces on Manchester, NH for not having Dinka interpreter

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 10, 2014

Every “welcoming” community that is either in bed now with the federal refugee resettlement program or contemplating snuggling up, should pay close attention!  Your state and local taxpayers are on the hook for interpreters every time an immigrant has a problem—in the school system, the health department and in the criminal justice system, most anywhere!    Just yesterday we wrote about Yer and Zit or was it Zar and Yar in Denver who need a Burmese interpreter to face the court on possible homicide charges.  Who do you think pays for that—you do (not Washington)!

Gatsas had previously ordered the Obama Dept. of Education Civil Rights Office to clear out for making inflammatory claims. I’m guessing they hold a grudge.

I do feel sorry for Manchester because whenever they first got into the refugee welcoming business they were either snookered or not told a thing about it until the refugees arrived.  Mayor Gatsas, to his great credit, has tried to slow the flow to the over-loaded city, but it may be too late—they already have 81 languages spoken in the school district!

Here is the latest from the Union Leader (hat tip: Paul).  No Dinka interpreter, sorry Manchester, that violent student is all yours!

MANCHESTER — District officials entered into an agreement with the federal Office for Civil Rights to return a student to school who had been slated for an expulsion hearing for assaulting another student.

The move has drawn strong criticism from at least two members of the school board’s Conduct Committee, which had voted unanimously to hold an expedited expulsion hearing for the student.

“The committee was blind-sided. This action does not support safety in our schools,” Ward 2 board member Debra Gagnon Langton, longtime chairman of the Conduct Committee, said at a Nov. 24 meeting. “I really think we need to vote on this. This is a violation of the public trust.”

Superintendent Debra Livingston replied that any discussion of the matter should take place in nonpublic session since it involved student privacy.

The complaint rests on the allegation that the district did not provide a Dinka interpreter to communicate to the student or his parents concerning his suspension.

Dinka is spoken by people from South Sudan.

[….]

As for the issue of language interpreters in the schools, Livingston said, “There are 81 languages spoken in the district. It’s very difficult to find someone who can translate all documents. What we’re trying to do is provide translation to as many students as possible.”

[….]

This isn’t the first time the district has drawn the attention of the OCR. Earlier this year, the civil rights agency entered an agreement with the district under which it would take concrete steps to boost the enrollment of black and Hispanic students in advanced high school courses. [Whether they deserve to be in those classes or not?—ed]

In August 2012, Mayor Ted Gatsas asked local representatives of the OCR to leave the City Hall chamber during a presentation in which they claimed that discrimination was a problem for minority students in the district. Gatsas accused the group of making unfounded and inflammatory claims.

We have a huge archive on Manchester, NH, click here to read the sad tale of an overloaded city trying to extricate itself from the feds and the entrenched contractors.

Remember that kerfuffle over the summer regarding nearby Dover, NH.  That was about spreading some of Manchester’s overload to surrounding small towns and cities.  Dover temporarily dodged a bullet when a public outcry erupted.

Where is Mark Steyn? Wouldn’t he have fun with the idea of a school district having to have a ‘Dinka man’ on call?

Denver: Wanted! More information on Zar Yar and Yer Zit

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2014

Seems they are Burmese refugees arrested on a possible homicide charge, but there is so little news on the arrest that happened last week, that we think there must be more to the story.  The victim is believed to be an Asian and we know that the court has to find a Burmese interpreter, and that is about all we know.

Back in 2009 we learned about Burmese and Bhutanese resettlement in Denver when the refugees were regularly being attacked by thugs after being placed in low-income neighborhoods. http://www.denverpost.com/ci_14053322

If you see more on the case, please let us know.

Here is a local Denver blog referencing the case.  Westword (hat tip ‘pungentpeppers’):

Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night. The victim has yet to be identified, and while two men — Zar Yar and Yer Zit — have reportedly been arrested in connection with the crime, no photos or additional details have been shared. Here’s what we know thus far.Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night. The victim has yet to be identified, and while two men — Zar Yar and Yer Zit — have reportedly been arrested in connection with the crime, no photos or additional details have been shared. Here’s what we know thus far.

[….]

….. law enforcers weren’t sure if a crime had been committed. But yesterday, CBS4 divulged that Zar Yar and Yer Zit had been taken into custody in relation to the death, which it defined as a homicide.

Nothing more about the suspects has surfaced beyond the station’s revelation that an advisement in the case had been put off until today to allow the court to find a “Burmese interpreter.”

We know a lot of Burmese of all sorts (and Bhutanese) have been resettled in Denver.  Reporters should check the resettlement contractors there for more on Yar and  Zit.

Also, keep in mind that taxpayers in “welcoming” communities must pay for interpreters for refugees facing legal charges.

Here is some contact information for resettlement contractors in Denver. Somebody knows Yar and Zit.  Why there are two offices for the Lutherans is beyond me, but keep in mind this is the same Lutheran outfit wanting to set up shop in Wyoming, here.

Alaska gets first mosque; refugees helping fuel diversity boom in Anchorage

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2014

In the Modern Day Trojan Horse:  Al-Hijra the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration authors Sam Solomon and E Al Maqdisi explain that migration is jihad and mosque-building is an important part of the migration and ultimately the establishment of the Islamic state.  If you haven’t read it yet, please do.

Now the migration has spread to Alaska and is being helped along by the US State Department’s Refugee Admissions Program.  According to our handy list, Catholic Social Services can be thanked for resettling Muslims there as the State Department refugee resettlement contractor.

From Aljazeera (of course!):

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska’s first mosque has risen quietly over the last few years in a gravel lot in a South Anchorage commercial district, a neighbor to a Korean Presbyterian church, a couple of auto repair garages, a drive-through Chinese restaurant and a Sons of Norway hall.

A few weeks ago, Sam Obeidi, vice president of the Islamic Community Center Anchorage Alaska, turned a key and pushed open the mosque’s door, flipping on a light in a hallway that smelled of drywall plaster and new carpet.

Palestinian by birth, Obeidi came to Alaska as a teenager to join his father, a refugee, who settled in Anchorage in the 1960s.

The Islamic holy land may be more than 6,000 miles away, but Anchorage has increasingly become a destination for Muslims, who now number as many as 3,000 in the city, the ICCAA estimates.

The draw is partly economic — Alaska’s economy was barely touched by the recession — and partly connected to waves of government refugee resettlement in Alaska’s largest city. White non-Hispanics now make up just over half the population of Anchorage. The rest is made up of a diverse mix of cultures: Alaska Natives, Pacific Islanders, Asians, Africans and Hispanics. More than 100 languages are spoken in the Anchorage schools.

That striking diversity is amplified among Muslims, who are far more likely to be immigrants and refugees. While many mosques in U.S. cities are tied to a single ethnic group, Friday prayers in Anchorage might draw Gambians, Pakistanis, Albanians, Somalis, Sudanese, Egyptians, Palestinians, Iraqis, Bangladeshis, Burmese, Russians and Malaysians, among others.

There is more, read it all.

By the way, in the Netherlands they are starting to ‘get it’ about mosque construction and the same goes for Germany.

Did you ever wonder why mosques are being proposed in places where there doesn’t seem to be enough supporting population for them?   Solomon and Al Maqdisi say that the mosque is a kind of territorial marker (my words) used to pull a Muslim population to it where the numbers will grow and expand until some set up another mosque and migrate to the new area.  It is a religious obligation to migrate (even to places like Alaska!).

Kansas City: Somali Christian (?) may be charged with hate crime for killing Somali Muslim

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2014

Here is a story that will make your head spin.  In the first version I read from two days ago it sure sounded like some crazy white guy who hated Somalis intentionally killed a Somali teen with his SUV.  CAIR was immediately on the scene.

Ahmed Aden charged with murder of Muslim Somali teen told police earlier that “people from Islam were going to kill him.”

Then after looking for an update, we have this story from late last night at the Kansas City Star that tells a different story.  Turns out the man arrested for the intentional killing of the teen is another Somali, supposedly a Christian one (very rare) who believed that the Muslim Somalis were out to kill him.

Isn’t diversity beautiful!

Kansas City, by the way, is (no surprise) a preferred resettlement community.  Check out who is bringing Somalis to Kansas City by going to this handy list.  One of the contractors operating in KC is a Jewish organization.

Kansas City Star:

Before suffering gruesome and fatal injuries Thursday, Abdisamad Sheikh-Hussein helped lead the evening Muslim prayers at his mosque near downtown.

“He asked for mercy for humankind and asked for humans to follow the righteous path,” remembered Ali Abdi, the assistant director of the Somali Center of Kansas City and its mosque.

But Abdisamad, 15, received no mercy minutes later as he stepped off the curb at 1340 Admiral Boulevard and headed toward a car. A Chevrolet Blazer speeding eastbound sideswiped the car and struck Abdisamad, nearly severing his legs.

The Staley High School sophomore died later at a hospital.

The driver of the SUV, Ahmed H. Aden, a 34-year-old Kansas City truck driver, told police after his arrest that he had been searching for men who’d threatened him nine days earlier. And he said he planned to kill those men if he found them, according to court records.

Aden told police that he intentionally struck Abdisamad, but he had mistaken the teen for one of the men who had threatened him.

Jackson County prosecutors charged Aden with first-degree murder, armed criminal action, leaving the scene of an accident and unlawful use of a weapon.

[….]

Aden, whom sources described as a Somali Christian, now is the target of both a state murder investigation and a federal hate-crimes probe, authorities said.

Members of the Somali community said that Aden long was known to have made frequent and violent threats against Muslims and the mosque, occasionally even threatening the mass slaughter of worshipers.

CAIR representative:  anti-Muslim graffiti on Aden’s car

Moussa Elbayoumy, chairman of the Kansas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said a member of the mosque has a photo of Aden’s SUV, taken about two months ago, showing anti-Muslim graffiti, reading, “Quran is a virus disease (worse) than Ebola.”

Read on, some of those interviewed at the mosque think it had nothing to do with a Christian v. Muslim issue but that Aden was just crazy.

One more long prison term that US taxpayers will have to fund.

Member of the Dutch Parliament calls for mosques to be banished from the Netherlands

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 5, 2014

…..and it wasn’t Geert Wilders saying it this time.

From Breitbart which has been doing a good job of reporting on the invasion and Islamification of Europe:

A Dutch right-wing member of parliament called for a purge of mosques in the Netherlands during a debate on the integration of Muslim and Turkish minorities.

“Dutch unity, identity and culture are being wrecked by immigration and incubation. We do not want Islam in the Netherlands,” said Machiel de Graaf, a member of Dutch anti-immigration and anti-Islam Party for Freedom (PVV), during a debate on integration in the Netherland’s House of Representatives, reports Hurriyet Daily News in Turkey.

He called for closing down all mosques in the country, emphasizing that the Netherlands would be better off without mosques, the Assyrian International News Agency reports.

According to de Graaf, Muslims in the country are not integrated into Dutch society and refuse to be assimilated.***

They also threaten Dutch identity and culture by having more kids, he added.

Members of the social democratic parties at the debate were quick to criticize the PVV deputy’s remarks, urging him to retract his words.

Although the PVV has been highly critical of Muslims and other immigrants in the country, this is the first time one of its members demands shutting down all mosques.

This last line caught my eye:

Muslims represent about five percent of the Dutch population, 2009 estimates show.

Pew Research has the number at 5.5% in 2010 (probably over 6% now).  It might not seem like much, but I’ve been looking at some demographic studies and my non-professional guess is that, at a 3% level, Muslim immigrants begin to push for Sharia law and other concessions from the host society.

In a geographically large country like Australia or the US that 3% figure applies to a city’s population where the Muslim population has begun to grow.

***By the way, mosque-building and refusing assimilation are integral to the Hijra.

Go here for our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series.

Obama to visit Nashville next week to celebrate diversity; illegal aliens

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 5, 2014

Wouldn’t it be great if he got a ‘welcome’ from those who vehemently disagree with his recent Executive amnesty!

Mr. Cool to rally illegal alien supporters in Nashville on Tuesday.

Here is the story at The Tennessean:

President Barack Obama is visiting Nashville next week to discuss his recent executive actions on immigration in a stop that will shine a spotlight on one of the nation’s fastest-growing immigrant populations.

The president, who will make his second trip to Davidson County in less than a year, will deliver his remarks Tuesday at Casa Azafran, an immigrant community center on Nolensville Pike that opened two years ago.

His visit comes two weeks after he issued an executive order to provide temporary legal status and work permits to more than 5 million immigrants who are in this country illegally. Seventeen states have joined together in a federal lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of Obama’s action, but Tennessee is not among them.

“With the number of foreign-born residents more than doubling over the past decade, Nashville has actively worked to welcome new Americans,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said. “Through community-based programs and government initiatives, the city is empowering and engaging New American community leaders. And the city’s actions are paying off.”

Nashville’s foreign-born population is nearing 12 percent, about double from a decade ago and fueling the city’s overall population growth during that span. Thirty percent of Metro’s public school students reside in homes where English is not the primary language, and 140 languages are spoken across the district.  [Oh, aren’t they lucky! See school system a wreck!—ed]

[….]

Though the majority of Nashville’s immigrants are Hispanic, the city has welcomed large Kurdish, Somali and Burmese refugee groups as well.

Readers of RRW know well how Catholic Charities has resettled thousands of refugees in Nashville.  In fact, in 2013, the ORR referenced Tennessee as a ‘pocket of resistance’ and we have an entire category devoted to ‘Nashville’ here.

Tennesseans who disagree with Obama should be sure to voice their displeasure at his choice of Nashville for a pro- Open Borders speech by complaining in advance to their Governor and to their two US Senators.  They are all three squishes on immigration, but all the more reason to give them an earful.

Did anyone let Laura Ingraham know?

Handy directory for US Refugee Resettlement Offices in 180 cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 4, 2014

And, there are 350 of them in 180 cities.  That means that in some cities two or more federally-funded agencies are falling over themselves to bring the joys of ethnic diversity to your neighborhood.

We came across this very useful list last night when we reported on the US State Department launch of their new “refugee” program for children in Central America.

Have a look at who is responsible where you live and keep the list for future reference.  Bear in mind that you might not have an office in your town (yet), but may be getting refugees from one of these offices nearby. 

Ha! Ha!  So much for Wyoming not having a refugee program, they sure do have an office listed!

Bosnian refugee murdered by thugs in St. Louis, MO

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 2, 2014

So can we expect Eric Holder to head on out to St. Louis now to comfort the family of the murdered man?

Tributes laid at the scene of the murder.

 

The murder victim’s family believes that  32-year-old Zemir Begic was targeted by the black thugs because of his ethnicity. It is possible. Just checking our archives and I see we have reported other refugees murdered in St. Louis in recent years.  Go here, for those posts.

African Americans don’t always take kindly to the arrival of refugees dropped off in their neighborhoods.  Isn’t diversity grand!

And, who knew that St. Louis had 70,000 Bosnians living in the vicinity?  Clinton brought them to the US to work for his meat packing buddies, remember this post?

Here is the story that was the subject of much discussion today on Fox News and on talk radio.

From the Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Police in St Louis have made a third arrest in connection to Sunday’s deadly hammer attack on a Bosnian immigrant, charging a 17-year-old as an adult in the slaying.

The arrests of the youths – among them two black teens and one Hispanic - in the death of 32-year-old Zemir Begic came as city officials struggled to tamp down speculations that the killing of the Bosnian man may have been motivated by race or somehow related to the ongoing unrest in Ferguson.

‘There is no evidence that this was a crime occasioned by the race or ethnicity of the victim,’ St Louis Mayor Francis Slay said in a statement Monday.

[….]

Zemir Begic, 32, a South City resident of Bosnian descent, was driving home with his newlywed wife at around 1.15am when police say a group of teenagers approached his car and began vandalizing it.

Begic emerged from his vehicle to try and stop them, at which point the teenagers allegedly attacked him with hammers, striking him in the head, face and abdomen.

The motorist was taken to an area hospital, where he died from his injuries a short time later. His wife escaped unharmed after her husband reportedly shielded her from the attackers with his body.

His family must have been part of Clinton’s gift of cheap labor to Tyson Food, other meatpackers

The family emigrated from Bosnia to the United States in 1996 and settled in Utica, New York, before moving to Waterloo, Iowa, said Begic’s sister from her home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

‘He loved America,’ she said.

‘We come from Bosnia because we were getting killed and our homes and families were getting destroyed. Never in my life did I think he would get murdered.’

Begic had lived in Arizona as well before moving to St Louis, and had married his wife only months before his murder.

With a population estimated to be around 70,000, St Louis has the largest community of Bosnians outside of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

There is an additional article here which says the Bosnian community has taken to the streets in protest.

We have quite a few posts on Bosnian, mostly Muslim, refugees in the US, click here to learn more.

Endnote:  My posting has been light and sporadic lately because I am working on another project which will be finished by Christmas.
