UK: Farage does a U-turn, calls for only Syrian Christians to be resettled

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 1, 2014

Displaced Syrian Christians.

This story is now a couple of days old, sorry I didn’t get to it yesterday, but Britain’s conservative party leader Nigel Farage has modified his earlier call that the UK should resettle Syrian refugees and says now it should only be the Christians.

And, coincidentally, Syrian Christians are talking to the media and reporting that they are not being resettled.

Members of the general public in the UK and in the US, if they are following this issue at all, are surely saying to themselves:  we watch these Muslim vs. Muslim civil wars in the Middle East and in Africa and then we are expected to resettle Muslims to the West—WTH!

Here is Yahoo.News on Farage’s U-turn (hat tip: Joanne):

Nigel Farage has retreated from his call for the UK government to take Syrian refugees into the UK, saying that only Christians from the country should be allowed in.

The Ukip leader caused a furious backlash from his party members over the weekend after saying that David Cameron had a duty to take in Syrian refugees fleeing for their lives.

The call put him at odds with the coalition government, who are refusing to take any refugees from the country.

However, in a U-turn which will lead to accusations of bigotry, he has now said that only Christians from the country should be admitted.

He told the Jeremy Vine Show that Syrian Muslims could flee to neighbouring countries.

“It’s bad enough for Sunni and Shia. At least there are neighbouring countries that will take them,” he said.

“Where on Earth are the Christians going to go? Christians are now a seriously persecuted minority.”

While Syrian Muslims are breaking into Western countries,* Christians playing by the rules in Jordan say they are not being allowed to apply to go to the West.

From CBN News:

Christian Syrian refugees have found temporary shelter in Jordan, but their immigration requests have been rejected by Western countries.

Some of them have spoken to the Associated Press, but want to remain anonymous for safety reasons.

One Syrian refugee said, “Everyone sold whatever they owned in Syria in order to get here, so that we could apply for visas at an embassy. We were all surprised to be rejected on the basis that there was no reason for us to go to Europe. Their reasons were all false – nothing correct in them.”

Another man said that western countries “were supposed to support us, and they were supposed to facilitate our immigration process as Christians, and I’m very sad that they haven’t.”

Read it all.

* Here is one more case where Turkey facilitated the movement of illegal alien Syrians who went to Turkey.  The “refugees” where allowed to leave Turkey for Morocco, then on to Guinea-Bissau where corrupt officials allowed them to board a plane to Portugal on false passports.  Portugal has now stopped all flights between Guinea-Bissau and their country due to the controversy.

    Seems the Christian West is “smartening up”, for over 1,400 years problem has always been Islam, still is!
    The major majority of the worlds refugees have been and are created by Islam.
    This is how Islam spreads. Islam is not a religion. It is a violent totalitarian ideology with elements
    of an religion that allow it to masquerade as an religion! It should never be treated as a religion.
    Islam is just a form of Arab Imperialism.

    The next problem is to outlaw it,
    Not bring in Moslem self made “refugees” they never assimilate and no evidence they ever will!

    The Christian belief and fact is Moslems are deceived.
    Like Schitzophreniacs,they need therapy;
    Not confirmation of their delusions.
    The recognized place of worship in a Christian Nation is a Christian Church.
    Mosques are the recognized place of worship only in Moslem countries
    The *only legally defined God* is our Christian God whose compound redemptive name is Lord Jesus Christ.
    Something as simple as denying Moslems a place to pray is all it takes to make them leave voluntarily and peacefully.

    “Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord”
