Daniel Pipes: Let refugees stay in their own cultural zone!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2013

I love it!  And, it makes so much sense you know it won’t fly!

But, it gives me an idea.  Immigration restriction advocates are always on the defense when dealing with the open borders agitators demanding we should be “good” people and let ’em all in.  Pipes has a suggestion—and we should all be promoting it in the media and with our US Senators and Members of Congress—resettle Muslim refugees in their own “culture zone” which Pipes calls “Arabia.”

The advantage for Muslim refugees in Arabia—no dogs, no pork, no scantily clad women, and no gay marriage to assault their religious sensibilities!

Here is his op-ed in the Washington Times today (hat tip: Paul)!  I don’t want to steal his thunder, nor do I want to put in all his links, so please go read his proposal.

The problem:

About one-tenth of Syria’s 22 million residents have fled across an international border, mostly to neighboring Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey. Unable to cope, their governments are restricting entry, prompting international concern about the Syrians’ plight. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres, suggests that his agency (as the Guardian paraphrases him) “look to resettle tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in countries better able to afford to host them,”


…. many more Muslim refugees are likely on their way. In addition to Syrians, these include Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Afghans, Iranians, Iraqis, Lebanese, Palestinians, Egyptians, Somalis, and Algerians. Other nationals – for example, Yemenis and Tunisians – might soon join their ranks.

The solution:

To place Syrians in “countries better able to afford to host them,” as Guterres delicately puts it, one need simply divert attention from the Christian-majority West toward the vast, empty expanses of the fabulously wealthy Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the smaller but in some cases even richer states of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. For starters, these countries (which I will collectively call Arabia) are much more convenient to repatriate to Syria from than, say, New Zealand. Living there also means not enduring frozen climes (as in Sweden) or learning difficult languages spoken by few, such as Danish.

More importantly, Muslims of Arabia share deep religious ties with their Syrian brothers and sisters, so settling there avoids the strains of life in the West.

Read it all.

We have many times on these pages pointed out that rich Muslim countries (especially Saudi Arabia) take NO refugees.  The International Left and the United Nations never utter a word of criticism (no surprise there!).
