Mideast archbishops ask why US is discriminating against Syrian Christians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2015

They have noticed the disparity in the numbers too (see our post last evening).

They need to be sending some of this anger toward the US Conference of Catholic Bishops who have been silent while resettling mostly Muslims from the Middle East as US State Department refugee contractors.

From Christian Today:

Catholic archbishops from Iraq and Syria are speaking out in defence of displaced Christians who are having a difficult time in applying for US visas to enable them to escape persecution in their own country and settle in a new land, such as the US, where they can freely practice their faith.

Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq, and Melkite Archbishop Jean-Clément Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria, spoke recently at the Knights of Columbus 2015 Convention press conference in Philadelphia, describing the plight of Christians in the Middle East, according to the Catholic News Agency.

They said they found out from official US government sources that since October last year, 906 Muslim refugees from Syria have been granted US visas. However, out of the 700,000 displaced Christians from Syria who applied for a US visa during the same period, only 28 succeeded in getting one.

Might not have come to the attention of the White House? Yeh, sure.

The archbishops said the apparent discrimination against Christians in the granting of US visas might not have reached the attention yet of the White House, but they said this is clearly a case of injustice.

“Our people are asking these questions: How come we apply for the American visa and are denied?” Archbishop Warda said. “This is a clear case of persecution. They’re being denied visas while others who have participated (in the violence) or at least were silent can go.”

See the related story here at WND about Chaldeans held in a detention center in California while others who came seeking asylum have been let go.

Franklin Graham’s comments about halting Muslim immigration has refugee resettlement contractor shaking

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2015

Could there be a little rebellion in the ranks?

I’m talking about federal refugee resettlement contractor World Relief (aka National Association of Evangelicals).  It seems that in the wake of Evangelist Franklin Graham’s call for a halt to Muslim immigration following the Chattanooga murder of four Marines and a Naval officer by an immigrant Islamist, the multi-faith folks went into defense mode.

What did they do?  They invited representatives of one of the most infamous mosques in the Washington area—All Dulles Area Muslim Society (Adams Center)—-and representatives of two leading Muslim Brotherhood front groups to join them in a multi-faith love fest in Washington (on Capitol Hill!) to send the message that they (including ‘Evangelists’) disagreed with Franklin Graham.

Here is the news at something called World Religion News (emphasis below is mine):

Denouncing Franklin Graham!

Bob_Roberts_Jr-238x300

Know the opposition! Bob Roberts Jr. http://globalfaithforum.com/bob-roberts-jr/

Recently, Evangelical Christian and Muslim leaders gathered at Capitol Hill, to debate a very sensitive matter, the one of Muslim immigrants in the USA. More precisely, this gathering took place on July 23, between Bob Roberts Jr., an evangelic pastor of NorthWood Church in Keller, Texas, and Muslim leaders of All Dulles Area Muslim Society, the Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Public Affairs Council. The purpose of the gathering was to reduce the tensions created between the Evangelical Christian church and the Muslim Churches [churches? who the heck wrote this?—ed] in America and to strengthen their relationships.

But the gathering has an even more important purpose, and that is to denounce and contradict the statements released by another Evangelic leader, launched on his public social network account. Those statements were rather sensitive, not reflecting the tolerance and acceptance promoted by the Christian church, which may have detrimental backfires on a society already tried by so much violence.

It all started when Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, a well-known Evangelic leader, said on his Facebook profile that Muslim immigrants should not be permitted to enter the USA anymore. This happened due to a violent shootout in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where five out of seven people shot by a Muslim young man died. Ever since, even the organizations that help relocate religious refugees started facing issues. Not because they were imposed to stop helping Muslims, but because people started to be afraid to accept them. Many volunteers and churches involved in resettling actions regarding religious refugees are frightened by the fact that the Muslims will turn into dangerous terrorist or even install the Shari‘ah law, once they get settled on American land.  [Gee! wonder where they got that idea!—ed]

As interesting as all that is, this (below) is the part that jumped out at me.  So, could there be a rebellion brewing?  Are there some not-so-happy Christians working with World Relief (one of the top nine resettlement contractors)?

This is so disingenuous!  What is not being reported here is that World Relief does resettle significant numbers of Muslim refugees because they must in order to get their federal contracts (read: federal cold hard cash!).

And, by the way, the federal government disallows any proselytizing by its contractors.  Some uninformed supporters of the federal contractors will tell you that they want to get the Muslims here to convert them to Christianity, don’t believe them.

World Religion News continued….

Graham’s statement is also not seen very well by World Relief, an organization based in Baltimore, which helps religious refugees to start a new life in America. Since they work mainly with church volunteers, they also faced the fear of some churches to accept Muslim refugees. World Relief mainly takes care of Christian refugees, but they never refused any person in need of help, regardless of their religion or background. Still, they know that by refusing to accept a Muslim refugee, they will also face problems with the Christian ones as well, as it will as well become harder for them to enter the resettling program.  [Huh?—ed]

Here is Franklin Graham’s website.  You might want to reach out to him and tell him you support what he said about Muslim immigration.

Editor’s note:

A reader suggested that when I write a post relating to Muslim immigration to be sure to remind you that this is the Hijra—Mohammed’s command to migrate and spread Islam across the world.  In order to succeed in building a worldwide caliphate, what do they need?  Numbers of course!

And, two more things:  My first post this morning is also labeled ‘Know the opposition.’  See our category entitled ‘The Opposition’ for more such posts.

Follow me on twitter!  There is so much happening that I can’t possibly post on it all, so I have been sending refugee/immigration articles to twitter.  I am @refugeewatcher.

In Syrian refugee news, Belgium rescues Christians gets bashed for it

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2015

Belgium, a country already struggling with a large Muslim migrant population, initiated a rescue of 250 Syrian Christians and has now been charged with participating in a publicity stunt.

I’m not holding my breath waiting for the day when US Christian and Jewish non-profits who contract with the federal government to resettle refugees say—WE WANT TO SAVE THE CHRISTIANS FIRST!  

Brigitte Herremans

Unbelievable! Playing politics with Christian lives? “Brigitte Hermans, an expert from the Catholic NGO Pax Christi, worries that the rescue will only embolden Bashar al-Assad’s claims that ISIS, rather than his regime, is the true threat to the Syrian people.”

Those ‘Christian’ and ‘Jewish’ ‘charities’ I’m talking about are the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Church World Service, World Relief (Evangelicals) and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.  

96% of the Syrian refugees being resettled by US Christian and Jewish charities are Syrian Muslims (mostly Sunni Muslims).

Why are they afraid to tell the UN and the Obama State Department NO!  Obviously some in Belgium have guts!

From Worldcrunch:

BRUSSELS — Moved by the dramatic situation of the Christian population in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, a group of Belgian activists, with support from the government, orchestrated a remarkable rescue operation to save nearly 250 Syrian Christians.

In Aleppo, the Christians were under continuous assault by ISIS, the al-Qaeda-aligned al-Nusra front and the Assad regime. Now they’re set to receive refugee status in Belgium and join the approximately 5,500 Syrian refugees already in the country.

[….]

Aleppo had 160,000 Christians before the war. Belgian authorities estimate there are only 55,000 left now.

[….]

Certain observers have harshly criticized the Michel administration, calling the rescue a public relations stunt. The government had been facing criticism in the past for its lackluster response to the refugee crisis in Europe, and still has not specified how many asylum seekers it will accept from the rest of the EU. Echoing the concerns of other EU members, Brussels opposes the proposals for a mandatory quota system but has yet to indicate whether it will host part of the 64,000 people who need to be resettled.

There is more here.

About the photo, apparently this publication has spelled Ms. Herremans’ name wrong, here.  Herremans has written with a pro-Palestinian bias for Pax Christi (the International Catholic Peace Movement), here.

Trump speaks out on Syrian refugees: we aren’t saving Christians, just the Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2015

Donald Trump

We are saving the Syrian Muslims and not the Christians!

Thanks to Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit for spotting a brief mention by Presidential candidate Donald Trump in Las Vegas on Saturday.  Go to Gateway Pundit for the story and the video clip.

Trump is almost right. It isn’t zero Christians, but it’s pretty close to zero.  Although we have admitted a small handful of Syrian Christian refugees, the vast majority are Muslims and mostly Sunni Muslims as we reported here recently96% of the small number admitted so far in 2015 are Muslims.

But, don’t forget!

Led by the Senate Jihad Caucus, the push is on to admit 65,000 Syrians before Obama leaves office and the vast majority of those will be plucked from UN camps populated by mostly Syrian Sunni Muslims.

Syrian Christians fear Muslim-populated United Nations camps

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2015

When I give presentations on our Refugee Admissions Program, I am asked all the time if we are taking Syrian Christians in our refugee flow and I tell people—very few!

UNHCR camps house mostly Muslim Syrians as Christians are too afraid to go there. In 2015, 96% of the Syrian refugees entering the US are Sunni Muslims. Photo from The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/jul/30/syria-aleppo-fight-continues-live

 

 

I had heard anecdotally that Christians fear the Muslims in the United Nations camps.

Last week Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily confirms our suspicions in an article entitled, ‘Obama response to Christian killing fields ‘horrifying’.

Quoting  George Marlin, author of a  new book, “Christian Persecutions in the Middle East: A 21st Century Tragedy,” Hohmann tells us this (emphasis mine):

As of December 2014, 600,000 Syrian Christians had fled their country or have been internally displaced, Marlin reports. In Aleppo, more than 65 percent have been forced to leave.

He told WND most Syrian Christians will not go to the United Nations refugee camps for two reasons. First, they are afraid they will be harmed and, second, they do not want to leave their country. [Hohmann previously reported that Assad had protected the Christians.—ed]

“The Christians are afraid to go to those camps, because the camps are basically populated by Muslims, and they’re afraid of retaliation and harm in these camps,” Marlin said. “So what is happening with the Christian refugees is the Christian community is basically taking care of these people, they’re staying in the churches, they’re staying in Christian homes, and we at Aid to the Church in Need are trying to get aid to the churches that are housing them.”

So every time you see a Syrian camp photo, or see that one of our resettlement contractors is over there helping in the UN camps, or you see Angelina Jolie visiting a Syrian camp, remember they are helping mostly Muslims.

What do the numbers look like?

Just a few days ago, I reported that the refugees now numbering over 1,000 who have been admitted to the US since 2012 are 94% Muslim.  After reading this WND article I went back to check the data base for just the Syrians admitted to the US in 2015.  What did I find?  The number of Muslims admitted is even greater when only 2015 is analyzed!

In 2015 we admitted 763 Syrians so far.  Of that number only 23 are Christians, 36 say they are simply Muslim and another 698 are Sunni Muslims.

So 96% of those arriving in US towns and cities are Syrian Muslims (mostly Sunni Muslims).

That means that US resettlement contractors including the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, World Relief, Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society are placing mostly Sunni Muslims (chosen by the UN) in your towns!   And, you pay for it!

The Jihad Caucus is aptly named!

Fourteen US Senators have asked Obama to admit 65,000 Syrians before his term in office ends.  We call them the Jihad Caucus because they are advocating for more Muslim refugees to be admitted to the US.

Why are Jewish groups “scampering” to save Muslim refugees?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2015

Good question isn’t it!  It is a question I’ve wondered about for 8 years, ever since I first heard of HIAS and Muslim refugees.

Hetfield_Mark_lg

President and CEO of HIAS, Mark Hetfield, pulls down a salary and related income package of about $300,000 a year to save Muslim refugees among others.

But, now that I know more, it is not too complicated to answer—they are doing it because they are politically-correct hard Leftists working to change America, and they are doing it for the money they receive from the US taxpayer to resettle Muslims in America.

I’m speaking specifically here of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), one of the groups mentioned in this editorial in the Jewish Voice entitled: HIAS & ADL Spend Jewish $$ to Bring Muslims to the US?

Regular readers know that HIAS is one of nine major federal resettlement contractors colonizing and changing your towns and cities.

We also learned last December that HIAS has dropped the word “Hebrew” from its name!  Go figure!

From the Jewish Voice (emphasis is mine):

It’s almost too embarrassing to tell the story about the Jewish organization, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and its new job of resettling Syrian/Muslim refugees into this country. And how many of us have ever heard of the umbrella group of this endeavor, calling itself the Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugees in Jordan which includes under its umbrella, other such name brand charities as: ADL, the AJC, JCPA, Jewish Federations of North America, to name but just a few?

Before we dig deeper into this lunacy, just how many Jews are there to be resettled from the nations of Syria and Jordan? How many fingers do you have on your left hand? So, without being geniuses, we conclude that the “refugees” being aided and abetted to immigrate to this country are…Muslims.*** And major American Jewish charities are stumbling over themselves to be the rescuers of these Jew haters. And Jew haters they are. We hear no words of love for Jews emanating from any major figure or leader from among the Muslim controlled lands in that area of the world. In addition, we must ask, “How are these people being screened to rule out terrorists being welcomed to this country?” If our southern border security is any indication of our ability to weed out undesirables, we are in big trouble.

[….]

So to all of the Jewish groups scampering to save the lives of Jew hating Muslims, please come to your senses and do what such groups back in the 1930’s failed to do. And that is to concentrate on using your good offices, power, clout and Jewish funding to focus on the needs of the Jewish populations that need assistance. And do so before it’s too late!

There is much more, read it all by clicking here.

*** The vast majority of refugees being resettled from Afghanistan, Iraq and now Syria are Muslims.  We have reported on those numbers many times on these pages, but I have no time this morning to find those posts.

Before I get a bunch of anti-Semitic comments, just a reminder that the Catholic Bishops, Lutherans, Episcopalians, some mainline Protestant churches and some Evangelicals are also taking cold, hard cash (your cash!) to resettle Muslims in America too!  I have never heard of one of them saying—we want to save the Christians and Jews FIRST!

Photo: You can check my numbers on HIAS by going to a recent Form990, here.  They received (in rounded numbers) income of $26 million and $16 million of that came from government grants (you).  They have 5 other employees in the 6-figure salary range.

Fox News special features Christian Iraqis entering US illegally across our southern border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2015

For those of you who have contacted me to see what I know about Mark Arabo, the Iraqi Chaldean man helping Iraqi/Syrian Christians get across our southern border illegally with the help of Mexican coyotes, I don’t have much to say at the moment.

See Fox News special:  ‘Christians Find Refuge from Terror in Jordan.’

We do know that the normal channels for Syrian refugees to enter the US are clogged with mostly Sunni Muslim ‘refugees’ chosen by the UN, but I remain very suspicious of anyone working with Democrats to further more illegal activity at our borders and especially those expanding the use of asylum.

For new readers, once granted asylum, these migrants become legitimate refugees and as such receive all forms of welfare and eventually a green card and citizenship.

Arabo and others like him should be pressuring the Obama State Department to prioritize Christian refugees in the official Refugee Resettlement Program over the thousands and thousands of Iraqi and Syrian Muslims we presently admit, rather than break the law at the US border.

And, I’m too pressed for time to look up the numbers, but we have brought in roughly 30,000 Iraqi Christians since Obama took office in a stream of about 120,000 Iraqis (mostly Muslims) in the normal Refugee Admissions Program.  Did all of Arabo’s illegal border-crossers first try for that program?  Were they somehow rejected?  I would like to know!

We have been watching the ‘invasion of Europe’ for years now as mostly African and Middle Eastern phony asylum seekers break into Europe.  Is it about to happen here in a big way?  Could Islamic extremists simply pretend to be Christians? Is Arabo a NO borders activist with an angle?  We have a lot of questions!

We’ll see what else we can find out….

Christians in Iraq utter desperate plea to the West: Destroy ISIS or open your doors and save us!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 13, 2015

Just as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops lobbies Congress and the White House to admit 65,000 Syrian refugees (over 90% will be Muslims) a Catholic cleric in Iraq begs the West to save the Christians from the Muslim invaders.

You can bet I’ll be watching to see if the US Bishops say a word about their fellow Christians.

If any of you see a statement (other than a few words of sympathy) from the Bishops, please let me know.  I have never seen one of the nine contractors say that we must first save the Christians!

Imagine what an earth-shaking event it would be if the federal resettlement contractors refused to resettle Muslims while Christians in Iraq were being persecuted.

From World Net Daily today (emphasis is mine):

A leading Iraqi prelate has called on the U.S. and its allies to double down on their efforts to defeat ISIS militarily, and, if that is not possible, to rescue Iraq’s 120,000 exiled Christians and grant them asylum in the West.

[….]

Archbishop Mouche [Syrian Catholic Archbishop Yohanna Mouche] said if the West is unable or unwilling to expand its military options against ISIS, then it should open its doors to Christians and other minorities seeking asylum.

“I am calling on the international community: if they cannot protect us, then they must open their doors and help us start a new life elsewhere,” he said.

But “we would prefer to remain in Iraq and be protected here,” he added.

[….]

The United States, which accepts the majority of the world’s refugees and asylum seekers, has taken in 119,210 refugees from Iraq since 2008, but 72,983 or 61 percent of those have been Muslims and only 42,000 or 35 percent have been Christian, according to U.S. State Department data.

As for the other major Middle Eastern source of refugees, Syria, the numbers are even more slanted toward Muslims. Among the nearly 850 Syrian refugees sent to the U.S. for permanent resettlement since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, 92 percent have been Muslim and less than 6 percent Christian.

[….]

Christians pose no security risks, yet they have been left largely to fend for themselves, said Joel Richardson, author and filmmaker who has recently been on missions trips to Iraq.

“There’s no question we need to open our doors to the Christians of Iraq,” he told WND. “There’s been a lot of anecdotal evidence that within Congress and the various departments and channels that oversee U.S. immigration that for some mysterious reason we’re putting up these roadblocks that prevent these Christians from coming to the U.S. when we’re morally obligated to let them in particularly in light of the fact that there is zero security risk and most of their plight can be attributed to the foreign policy blunders of the U.S. State Department under Barack Obama that was led by Hillary Clinton.”

[….]

While the Christian refugees of Iraq pose no security risk, the loudest voices in the refugee resettlement industry, such as former U.K. Foreign Minister David Miliband, who now heads the International Rescue Committee, have lobbied in recent months almost exclusively on behalf of the Syrian refugees. Miliband and others have said the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016.

This same demand — for the U.S. to accept 65,000 Syrian refugees — has been made by the Refugee Council USA, the main lobbying arm of the nine agencies that do the resettlement work under contract for the U.S. government.

There is much more in this exclusive report, continue reading here.

Muslim ‘refugees’ throw Christians overboard in Mediterranean crossing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 17, 2015

Just yesterday we told you about the latest wave of European invaders from North Africa launching from the coast of the failed state of Libya (Thanks Hillary!).

Our correspondent on Malta had previously reported that the Italian press says many destitute Africans and Middle Easterners were being herded onto boats (presumably by Islamic terror groups) instead of paying their way through human traffickers.

Thanks to all who sent it!  This story might give us more evidence that such a scenario is happening—were murdering Islamists placed on boats with Christians on purpose?

So much for a free ride to Europe.

From USA Today (thanks to all who sent it):

Italian police arrested 15 Muslim migrants who survivors said tossed 12 Christians from a boat during a recent Mediterranean crossing attempt. In a separate incident, 41 migrants were feared drowned as the situation in the region intensifies.

The Muslim migrants involved in the clash with Christians were arrested in the Sicilian city of Palmero and charged with “multiple aggravated murder motivated by religious hate,” police said in a statement Thursday, according to the BBC. The victims were from Nigeria and Ghana. The suspects were from Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal.

Police learned of the incident through interviews with survivors, who said they boarded a rubber boat Tuesday off the Libyan coast with 105 passengers aboard, the Associated Press reported. The surviving Christians were able to remain onboard only by forming a “human chain” to resist the assault, police said.

While the UNHCR and the ‘humanitarian industrial complex’ generally say, to save lives, Europe should fling open its gates to any one who wants entry…..

There is only one way to save Europe.  The Italian Navy among others must form a blockade on the North African coast and turn back all of the migrant boats.  That would save lives (and save Europe).

Reminder!  We are taking some of these very same migrants as ‘refugees’ to America as we pick up Malta’s over flow!  Where is Congress on that?

In refugee-saturated North Carolina, Burmese refugee kills Burmese children in his neighborhood

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 18, 2015

Update March 19th:  See refugee agency “disturbed” and quick to say refugees have criminal background checks before arriving in the US.  So what about mental illness screening?  The victims had only been in the US for just a little over 4 months.

He was described as crazy and people feared him.

So the next time a resettlement contractor tells you that refugees are screened before entering the US, remember that mental illness is obviously not a bar to admission.

The accused murderer, 18 year old Eh Lar Doh Htoo is believed to be Karen (Christian).

Although this creep doesn’t appear to be a Muslim as was the Burmese child murderer in Utah, Esar Met, he should never have been allowed into the US.  His mental problems were likely apparent to his interviewers as were Met’s.

From the Charlotte Observer (hat tip: Cathy):

NEW BERN, N.C.

A Burmese immigrant accused of stabbing three young brothers to death had scared a different neighborhood family by knocking on their door several times in the middle of the night.

“He’s crazy,” neighbor Ner Wah said Wednesday. “I told my wife: ‘Be careful. Don’t answer the door.'”

The suspect, identified as 18-year-old Eh Lar Doh Htoo, attacked a Burmese family in their home Tuesday night with a knife, killing the brothers — ages 1, 5 and 12, police said. When officers arrived, he was still holding the knife, New Bern Police Chief Toussaint Summers Jr. told The Associated Press.

Htoo also wounded the brothers’ mother and their 14-year-old sister. Police said they don’t know a motive for the attack and a language barrier hampered their investigation.   [Expensive interpreters will be called in and you, the taxpayer, pay for that service—ed]

[….]

New Bern is a coastal town and home to about 1,900 Burmese refugees, who resettled in the area after fleeing persecution from the country once called Burma.

[….]

Susan Husson, executive director of the Interfaith Refugee Ministry in New Bern, said the victims’ family and the suspect’s family likely came through her office before settling in New Bern, but she didn’t know them personally.

20,581 refugees were resettled in North Carolina since January 2005. 7,432 of them were Burmese.

Interfaith Refugee Ministry

On this last point (above) two comments:  First, interesting that they must resettle so many refugees in New Bern that the director doesn’t even know the people she has brought to the city.  And, then reader Cathy pointed out that maybe people are catching on and someone directed this reporter to the agency responsible for bringing them to New Bern— Interfaith Refugee Ministry.  It used to be very rare for reporters to figure out there was an agency involved when refugees ‘find their way’ to this town or that town.

Checking a recent Form 990 for Interfaith Refugee Ministry, we learned that they took in $1,138,222 one recent year and $1,054,809 came to them from you—via government grants.  They are 93% funded by taxpayer dollars, therefore they are an arm of the federal government, not a charitable ‘church’ group!

How many Burmese Muslims are entering the US?

Again, the accused killer is being described as belonging to the Karen ethnic group which are Christians.

However, I was recently shocked doing some numbers research to learn that the US admitted 1,439 Burmese Muslims to the US in 2014 alone.

North Carolina is not in the Top Ten resettlement states, but falls just short of making the list, here, at number twelve.
