Good ol’ USA is taking in Afghan Muslim refugees while their fellow Muslims in Pakistan want them out. Just yesterday we reported on one of those refugees we welcomed from Afghanistan when he was sentenced to 25 years in jail for his Islamic terror plans.
We have written previously about Pakistan’s demands that the Afghan refugees go home. At the center of the news this morning is the subject of that photo I bet everyone of you has seen at some point in the last three decades—the National Geographic cover photo of Sharbat Gula.
Here is the story about how Gula has an illegal ID card. They are overrunning us!
As evidenced by the anger over Gula having a CNIC, many Pakistanis are ready for them to return to Afghanistan. “We need them to leave Pakistan because we are badly suffering,” Hamid-ul-Huq, who represents Peshawar, told The Guardian. “All our streets, mosques, schools are overloaded because of them. It is time for them to leave Pakistan honorably.”

And, be sure to see a post we wrote in 2009 where UNHCR Antonio Guterres declared that the world’s ‘welcoming’ heart for refugees comes from Islam—from Shariah law. (I laugh every time I think about that!)
How did we become such suckers?
