UNHCR Guterres looking to resettle tens of thousands of Syrians ….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 26, 2013

….to countries that can afford them!

UNHCR Socialist Antonio Guterres just licking his chops to pressure US into starting the Syrian migration to America.

Antonio Guterres also told The Guardian that he expected the resettlement to be as large as the one they undertook with Iraqis.  (hat tip: Mike)

Guterres compared the Syrian refugee issue to that of Iraqis during the last decade, when more than 100,000 were resettled away from the region. “If things go on for a prolonged period of time then resettlement will become a central part of our strategy,” he said. “We would like when the time comes … to be able to launch a resettlement programme as massive as the one for Iraqis.”

From 2007 to this spring, the US resettled 84,902 of the Iraqis resettled anywhere in the world, so expect the UN to put the screws to the US State Department to lead the way again.  Surely that is on-going at this very moment with the resettlement contractors busy lobbying behind-the-scenes for the State Department to bring them some Syrians to add to their diversity stew.  Incidentally, that 84,000 figure doesn’t include the earlier waves of Iraqis who came to the US as refugees, like the guy who bombed a federal building in Arizona, here.

Here is more from The Guardian:

Western countries including the US and Britain may be asked to accept tens of thousands of Syrian refugees because the exodus from the civil war is overwhelming countries in the region, the UN’s refugee chief has warned.

With no end to the war in sight, the flight of nearly 2 million people from Syria over the past two years is showing every sign of becoming a permanent population shift, like the Palestinian crises of 1948 and 1967, with grave implications for countries such as Lebanon and Jordan, UN and other humanitarian aid officials say.


In an interview with the Guardian, António Guterres, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, said the situation was already far more than just a humanitarian crisis. If a resolution to the conflict was not found within months, the UN will look to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in countries better able to afford to host them, including Britain. Germany has already offered to take 5,000, but other offers have been limited, Guterres said.

I’m beginning to think these Muslim conflicts in the Middle East are about getting Muslim migrants spread around the Western world, or at least that is the side-benefit for Socialists like Antonio Guterres.

Reminds me to mention the Palin Doctrine—-when both sides in a conflict are shouting ‘Allahu akbar‘ and killing each other, let Allah sort it out!

Let your Senators and Members of Congress know how you feel about Syrian immigration to America during their August recess.  They will be amazed that you are on top of the news (because they likely are not!).   And, tell them that the Iraqis that came before them are heavily dependent on welfare and are suffering from high unemployment rates.

  3. THEY ARE SO FAR GONE IN THE UK, they don’t even want to find out, just how BAD their “open immigration” has crippled their Country !

    MPs issue warning over immigrant numbers
    Fresh concerns have been raised over Britain’s migration system as a group of MPs warned the statistics it relies on are “unfit for purpose”.

    By Andrew Gilligan8:59PM BST 27 Jul 20 2013
    The Public Administration Select Committee said figures used by ministers could not be trusted, and described the key measurement of migration as “little better than a best guess”.

    In a highly critical report, the MPs warned that estimates of how many people migrate to and from the UK were based on a sample of just 5,000 people, which is “not accurate enough to measure the effect of migration on population”.

    Separate research by The Telegraph has found that the figure ministers use to show the “success” of immigration policies may be inaccurate by as much as 50 per cent.

    The “net migration” figure had been highlighted to hail dramatic progress towards a target of cutting net migration to 100,000 a year by 2015, from 252,000 in 2010.

    However, the figure is based on research that is so inaccurate that the Government’s own advisory committee recommended that the only way to be sure of meeting the 100,000 target would be to adopt a target of 50,000.

  5. OPM (other perople’s money) is so easy to spend, and so what if their civilization is destroyed, they still get their lucrative salary and elite lifestyle. Let the peasants eat dirt!


  6. WHY the UNHCR wants NO “refugee camps” and WHY the UNHCR wants terrorists, in effect, exported to other home countries…a lesson in exporting terrorism and instability to Western nations….

  7. Refugee problem calls for ‘burden sharing’ – António Guterres

    How the U.S. Funds the UN

    Syrians are not classified as “refugees”

    According to Section 7 of the Asylum Law, asylum is granted to asylum seekers “if it is satisfactorily established that they are in danger of persecution in their country of origin (Article 1A(2) of the Geneva Convention on Refugees) and none of the grounds set forth in the cessation clauses in Article 1C or F of the
    Geneva Convention on Refugees is present.”

    Syrians are fleeing conflict an Islamic norm. Until Islam is recognized as the problem nothing will change. In fact one moves the conflict with them! Problems are breaking out in Sydney’s Islamic held suburbs now!

    Untill the UN face up to the problem is Islam the only way to help is do nothing or you end up fanning the flames. Once the problem is admitted to the solution becomes easy


    • The Regime of Barak Obama has been “fanning the flames” in this part of the world, since it’s emaculation.

      Destabilization and Anti-Semitism has been the goal of American Progressives in this part of the World, actively, since the Camp David Accords, by the former President and famous Anti-Semite Jimmy Carter, and his ilk.

      The goal of The Regime is furthering Islamic, and Muslim interests in the region and the World, and furthering the establishment of a modern caliphate.

        Mike, you have a couple of very long comments I didn’t post. Haven’t had time today for much here at RRW, but will edit/shorten them tomorrow. You find some good stuff, but a few introductory sentences and then a link would do the trick… Thanks!
