Clarion Project: 13% of Syrian refugees support ISIS
Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2015
This should be no surprise!
From The Clarion Project (Hat tip: Diana):
A poll published in November 2014 by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies found that 13% of Syrian refugees have positive feelings towards the Islamic State terrorist group. The data should raise questions about the risks posed by the acceptance of Syrian refugees into the United States.
The poll surveyed 900 Syrian refugees equally split between Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. The think-tank found that 4% expressed a positive opinion of the Islamic State (ISIS) and another 9% expressed a “somewhat positive” opinion of the terrorist group. Another 10% only view the group negatively “to some extent.”
97% of the Syrians admitted to the US in FY2015 were Sunni Muslims.
Director of the FBI James Comey told Congress recently that we cannot properly screen them.
Here are the states where Syrians have been resettled this month (the first month of the 2016 fiscal year).
