Jewish groups blast Obama: No leadership! Proposed Syrian refugee numbers too low

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2015

Of course this is no surprise to long-time readers, but it is one of the first strong criticisms I’ve seen of Obama who has been the darling of the one-worlders of the No Borders American Hard Left.  Back in 2007, there was no reluctance to excoriate George W. Bush when he was going cautiously on admitting Iraqi Muslims to the US.

Hetfield: Obama is not showing leadership on Syrian resettlement numbers. 10,000 is too low! We want 100,000!

Remember that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society*** is paid by the head to resettle refugees of all religious persuasions (including the mostly Muslim Syrians) as very few Jews are in the refugee stream to America these days.  HIAS and the other eight federal resettlement contractors would have to close up shop without their infusion of your money!

I’m so sick of lazy (or purposefully deceptive) reporters who never mention the financial incentives behind resettlement.

From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency:

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Two U.S. Jewish organizations said the Obama administration’s offer to absorb at least 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year was inadequate.

“Increasing the total number of refugees from 70,000 to 85,000 for next year and to 100,000 for the year after is a nice symbolic gesture,” Mark Hetfield, the president of HIAS, a Jewish group that assists in refugee resettlement and advocates for immigration reform, said Sunday in a statement. “It is a baby step in the right direction. But it is not leadership.”

The Reform movement also said in a statement Monday that Secretary of State John Kerry’s proposed numbers did not meet the mark.

See all of our coverage of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, here.  Go here to see if HIAS is working in your city.  If one is near you, call the office and ask how many Syrian Muslims they are bringing to your community.  Ask them point blank if they will advocate for the persecuted Christians first!

Our huge archive on Syrian refugees is here.

*** Have a look at the most recent Form 990 for HIAS (which re-branded itself and dropped the word Hebrew from its name awhile back).  It is a $31 million dollar a year supposed ‘non-profit’ group that receives 55% of its funding from the US taxpayer.

Federal grants total just over $16 million and that is to resettle refugees!  And they receive other funds related to their refugee resettlement efforts including over $500,000 in processing fees for loans (refugee air fare loan collections).

Hetfield pulls down a salary (and related income) of just over $300,000 per year and there are 5 other employees in the six-figure range.

    Well, surprise surprise! Israelis and the Jewish interests want to rid the Middle East of Arabs, well, as many as possible – in effect a ‘double whammy’ .
    De-populate their diaspora, send as many Arabs as possible ELSEWHERE, ANYWHERE – to the USA, or anywhere in Europe, get paid for doing so and who knows, maybe more land may come available near their borders. Boy, WHAT a game! By the way, I AM MOST ASSUREDLY NOT anti- Semitic – no way. On the other hand I wonder at their audacity, prescience and entrepreneurship – breathtaking opportunism.
    And WE? Total putty in their hands. What total ineptitude on the part of the West -Or is it? The ruling classes in our countries couldn’t give a damn how we ‘commoners’ handle the situation – these moves will not affect their wealth. No Sir!
    My old pals the Guys and Dolls, those regular workers who have NO WAY OUT – the nine-to-five automatons simply see THEIR taxes week after week year after year with no relief; whilst our pampered, trough-swilling, tax avoiding elite grapple to find new ways to defraud us with their expense accounts, salaries and pilfering. Will ANY of them be living on the doorsteps of the Muslim ingratiates? Will a new mosque be built within the Washington/Westminster well manicured lawns? No! The mosques will be built where our churches used to be located – and the takeover progresses inexorably, prayer-mat by prayer-mat to ensure that BHO can listen to the delightful sound of the Mullahs calling him to prayer. Cynical – who, me? No, my old Grandad told me – ‘as ye sow – so shall ye reap’. Hardly quantum mechanics, is it?
