Hurry! Get those New Americans their citizenship before September 2016 (government grants fueling the process)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

Since I’ve been fixated on the Obama plan to replace (old) Americans with New Americans.  You know the “seedling” plan!   And, then we learned that there is even a non-profit group funded by big money foundations also pushing for immigrants to get their legal permanent resident status swapped for citizenship called the New Americans Campaign, you should know that your tax dollars are fueling the process!

As if it’s any surprise, we learned in our previous post that immigrants most often vote for the Democratic Party!

Citizenship class in Maryland run jointly by Casa de Maryland and AmeriCorps. Your tax dollars at work! http://www.citizenshipmd.org/classes/

From the Dept. of Homeland Security (USCIS) comes this pipeline flowing with your money to ‘non-profits’ to get those immigrants signed up pronto! before a deadline of September 2016 (gee, I wonder what the rush might be!).  (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

Citizenship and Integration Grant Program

On Sept. 18, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the award of nearly $10 million in grants to 40 organizations that will help permanent residents prepare and apply for U.S. citizenship. Located in 24 states and the District of Columbia, these organizations will receive federal funding to support citizenship preparation services for permanent residents through September 2016.

[….]

Grant recipients are public or private nonprofit organizations with recent experience providing citizenship instruction and naturalization application services to permanent residents. They include public school systems, community and faith-based groups, adult education organizations, and literacy organizations.

Recipient organizations are geographically diverse and represent both traditional immigrant destinations and new immigrant gateways across 24 states and the District of Columbia. Grant recipients plan to provide citizenship instruction and naturalization application services to approximately 22,000 permanent residents from more than 50 countries. Grant recipients represent:

Eighteen of the top 20 states with the largest permanent resident populations (California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Massachusetts, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington, Michigan, North Carolina, Arizona, Ohio, Minnesota, Colorado, and Connecticut);

Eight of the top 10 metropolitan areas with the most new permanent residents in the past 10 years (New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, greater Washington, Chicago, Houston, Boston, and Atlanta); and

Nine of the top 10 states with the most naturalizations over the last two years (California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, Massachusetts, Georgia and Pennsylvania).

So who are the groups with their hands out to the feds through this one program (obviously, AmeriCorps has another funding stream).  We recognize many refugee resettlement contractors on the list.

US Census: Immigrant population boom happening now

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

This is the headline from the UK Daily Mail yesterday.  You may have already seen it:

White US children will be minorities by 2020 after immigrant ‘baby boom’, Census reveals

 

In the infographic linked below, the author of Diversity Explosion tells of all the warm and wonderful things that will come to America as diversity expands and blossoms—one of those wonderful new frontiers will happen with governance as the immigrants, we are told, will mostly register as Democratic voters!

 

Here are the first few paragraphs:

White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal.

This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration.

By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities.

The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born – thanks to an influx of 64million new immigrants.

The “seedlings” are sprouting at a rapid rate!  We are being replaced and Obama is one step ahead of us.

Read it all and see the graphs.  Be sure to click on the cute little infographic by Brookings where we are told in gleeful tones that the immigrants will vote Democratic (so as to get their government goodies?)!  See the book, here.

Scientific American: Global warming brought on the Syrian civil war, creating refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

Conflict in the Middle East all about global warming!

We think we have found the explanation as to why Obama won’t say “radical Islam” in relation to the head-chopping violence going on in Syria and Iraq.

Who knew!  It is really all about global warming not Islam!

As I sit here in March, snow storm swirling outside and temperatures predicted to drop to zero tonight, I’m reporting about how all those Syrian refugees on the march are the result of global warming!

From Scientific American:

Climate change can make storms stronger, cold spells longer and water supplies drier. But can it cause war? A new study*** published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says drought in Syria, exacerbated to record levels by global warming, pushed social unrest in that nation across a line into an open uprising in 2011. The conflict has since become a major civil war with international involvement.  [Nothing whatsoever to do with Islam?–ed]

[….]

A number of research efforts in recent years have suggested that warmer temperatures and drought increase the risk of violent conflict around the world. A 2009 study found that over the past 30 years in sub-Saharan Africa, temperature rise correlated with an increase in the likelihood of civil war. A 2011 study implicated climate change in pushing up food prices in Egypt, fueling revolution there.

Grasping for straws! Climate ‘scientist’ Richard Seager: Drought created by global warming=Syrian civil war. Photo and bio: http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/res/div

[….]

The U.S. Defense Department is taking the warning seriously. It issued a report last November declaring climate change a “threat multiplier” that will impact national security. When Scientific American asked Seager [Richard Seager–ed] if his group’s research supports that point of view he said, “Yes. It does. Climate change is very much a cause of concern for national, regional and international security and this study makes clear how that can work. The Syrian war has now taken on a life of its own…however, a drought made worse by climate change was one important factor that initiated the social unraveling.”

The article does mention the drought in California, but no explanation as to why the same pattern of violence isn’t happening there. Maybe not a high enough population of heat-sensitive Muslims (yet).

So, let’s see, if one accepts the premise that resources/food production are being depleted in certain parts of the world due to the ever-changing climate, then bringing hundreds of thousands of immigrants to America will do what?  What else!—bring violence and chaos to America even faster!

***You know what is so strange!  I wanted to see the Study itself and I get a notice that the study isn’t available!

More here at Slate as the news of this “study” spreads through the Leftwing media.

See our ‘Climate refugees’ category here.  We can chuckle, but for several years now the international Left has been predicting (agitating) that migrants moving in response to weather will be our next big wave of “refugees” as they work to expand the definition of what constitutes a refugee—someone you should “welcome” as a “seedling” to your town!

Twisted Dems use fear of terrorists coming across Southern border to pressure Members of Congress on Homeland Security vote

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 4, 2015

Grrrr!  These people are despicable.  99.9% of the time, the Democrats will claim the border is secure, move along, nothing to see, no terrorists sneaking across Obama’s border, but in the lead-up to the Homeland Security funding vote yesterday they directed robo-calls to key Republican districts telling constituents that their conservative Member of Congress was making them less safe.

This is from Think Progress (that rag funded with George Soros $$$ and created by John Podesta).

We told you last week about the recent Texas report here where we learned that aliens connected to Islamic terrorist groups were apprehended at the border.

Think Progress reports (Democrats Invoke Terrorists Crossing The Border In Robocall On Homeland Security Funding):

House Republicans averted a Department of Homeland Security shutdown Tuesday by approving a funding bill without any of the politicized moves to shut down Obama’s immigration executive action. But in the hours before the vote, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sought to gin up support for the funding by calling constituents with a warning that terrorists were crossing the border.

The DCCC call targeted 29 “vulnerable” House Republicans, accusing them for holding up DHS funding at a time when “known terrorists are trying to sneak across the border.” According to the DCCC website, the robocall includes a transcript as follows:

This is [PERSON] calling from the DCCC. An alarming new report says that known terrorists are trying to sneak across the border, yet the Republican led Congress is refusing to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security. With so many threats at home and abroad, the Republicans in Congress should not be playing games with our national security.

Call Congresswoman McSally at XXX-XXX-XXXX and tell her enough is enough. Stop playing politics and fully fund the Department of Homeland Security.

The robocall did not specify the nature of the terrorist crossings. But a press release sent by the DCCC linked to a leaked Texas Department of Public Safety assessment, which found some evidence of “special interest aliens” caught trying to cross the southern U.S. border, individuals who came from countries with known terrorism ties. Arrests include Somali immigrants with connections to al-Shabab, the terrorist group that targeted the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya and another terrorist group known as Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya. The report also mentioned the arrest of high-profile cartel leaders based in Mexico.

“Republicans like Congresswoman McSally have allowed this dysfunction to go on long enough,” DCCC spokesperson Matt Thornton said in a press release. “With threats at home and abroad, the American people can’t afford another day of the Republicans’ political games and continued failure to govern. Since Republicans have such a bad track record, we wanted to ensure that voters would hold their members accountable.”

They are so disgusting as they go on to say, but it is O.K. because Obama has kept us safe at the border.

DC cabbie on FBI terror list arrested in Somalia, but was US Justice Department complicit in letting him leave US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2015

The Somali (refugee!) cab driver was familiar with the Washington, DC Metro area and therefore extremely valuable to Al-Shabaab, so why did the Justice Department not move in on him sooner?

Heck, he has been gone from the US for almost three years and that is a lot of time to divulge what he knows to the Islamic (America-hating) killers with Al-Shabaab!

See our previous post last month, here.

Gee, maybe Mohamed even knows where Eric Holder lives!

Who in the US Justice Department overruled the FBI allowing Liban Haji Mohamed to leave the country?

 

Here is how the news at the Washington Post begins, but it is near the end where we learn the most significant piece of this story (I think they call this buryng the lead).  (Hat tip: Cathy):

A Northern Virginia man who fled the United States more than two years ago and was recently placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list is in the custody of the Somali government, U.S. officials said.

Liban Haji Mohamed, 29, was detained shortly after prosecutors unsealed a warrant for his arrest and the FBI added him to the wanted list in late January. It is unclear how he was taken into custody or how soon he could be brought back to the United States.

The former cabdriver is charged with providing material support and resources to al-Shabab, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization allied with al-Qaeda. He is suspected of having an operational role in al-Shabab and of trying to recruit people to join the group.

When FBI officials announced his inclusion on the most-wanted list, they said Mohamed was “an asset to his terrorist associates who might plot attacks on U.S. soil.” Officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, noted that he had detailed knowledge of potential targets in Washington.

Unbelievable!

U.S. law enforcement had been attempting to track Mohamed, a naturalized U.S. citizen, before he slipped out of the country and into Mexico on July 12, 2012. The case had frustrated FBI agents who strongly believed Mohamed should have been charged with material support of terrorism while he was living in Fairfax County.

Some federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia were willing to do so, though they were overruled by others at the Justice Department, officials said.

Heads should roll over this decision!

For new readers we are admitting over 800 Somalis into the US each month right now!

New Americans Campaign is a partner in Obama’s Task Force on replacing you!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 2, 2015

We told you about the Task Force on Saturday in response to a revelation made on the February 26th Mark Levin radio program.  See that post by clicking here.

Reader Julia has been doing some digging and has identified one of the many participants in the task force.

Transforming immigrant “seedlings” to Democratic voters!

The New Americans Campaign is an advocacy group which is working in certain areas of the United States to get as many Legal Permanent Residents signed up for US citizenship as they possibly can—new Democrats of course! 

I laugh every time I imagine (crazy I know) what would happen to all of these well-funded Open Borders advocacy groups if all of a sudden immigrants were registering to vote Republican!   The organization would be shuttered in a heart beat!

They say in their literature:

8.5 million Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) are eligible to naturalize—but fewer than one million naturalize each year.

With millions in funding they are working to change that!

The New Americans Campaign is part of the Naturalization Working Group, see here, which submitted comments to the Obama Task Force.

Founding partners of the New Americans Campaign include George Soros’ Open Society Foundations:

Six national foundations joined in an unprecedented collaboration to support the nonpartisan New Americans Campaign to help modernize naturalization assistance in the United States and help more legal permanent immigrants become U.S. citizens.

The consortium has so far committed more than $25 million to the project. Founding national funders of the New Americans Campaign are: The Carnegie Corporation of New York; the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund; Grove Foundation; Open Society Foundations and The JPB Foundation. More recently, the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation joined the Campaign as a national funder. Other funders invest locally in individual sites. For a full list of our funders, visit our Partners page.

Less than four years old, the New Americans Campaign is busy, busy, busy in the following locations:

The New Americans Campaign is a diverse national network of legal-service organizations, faith-based organizations, businesses, foundations and community leaders that is paving a better road to citizenship. The Campaign began in the cities of Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Jose. More than 3.3 million citizenship-eligible individuals reside in these eight metropolitan areas, representing more than 40 percent of the pool of citizenship-eligible legal permanent residents in the United States.  [Reader Julia wants to know if the Campaign has access to government (personal) records of all those eligible LPRs so they know where/who to target?—ed]

The New Americans Campaign has expanded to include collaborations in the East Bay Area, Napa County, Orange County, San Diego County, and San Francisco; and coalitions in the states of Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Washington.

Go here to see all of their partners (many of the ‘non-profits’ listed receive federal funding) including Catholic Legal Immigration Network, International Rescue Committee and Church World Service.  The IRC and CWS are of course refugee resettlement contractors.

Getting ready for 2016 I bet!

Obama Task Force on New Americans: Changing America by ‘seeding’ migrants in towns everywhere

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 28, 2015

Obama is changing America by changing the people!  You might even say he is “colonizing” America!

And, they are doing it by changing the language as well!

Update March 2:  Learn about another participant in the plan—New Americans Campaign, here.

Yesterday several readers directed me to a segment of the Mark Levin radio program where Levin interviewed “Sue” from Maryland.

Sue had been wise enough to get on recent conference calls with the White House Task Force on New Americans, we mentioned the Task Force here and here.

In our first post we told you who was in charge and that they were not “assimilating” immigrants.  They are “integrating” them.  The word “assimilate” is verboten in the Open Border circles.

The task force was created in November, here it is.  Now they are getting to work under the guidance of none-other than former La Raza (“the race”) agitator Cecilia Muñoz and the Director of USCIS León Rodríguez.

In that second post, we copied verbatim the Task Force on New Americans instructions for getting on the call.  Note that they wanted to keep whatever was said from the press:

Note to the media: This engagement is not for press purposes.”

After hearing Sue’s description of what she heard, it is no wonder they didn’t want the press to know what was being said!

You can listen to Sue’s report to Levin by going to the Podcast of Levin’s February 26th show. Go here and find the February 26th show.  Start listening at 91:12 (on my version of the podcast).

***Update***  Reader Caroline sent us this link to WCBM (Baltimore) where Sue is identified as Sue Payne co-host of the Pat McDonough Radio Show.

Everything she says rings true with what we have been hearing and reporting for the last couple of years!  But, it wasn’t until now that it all becomes clear!

seedling

The image is from a powerpoint presentation by ‘Welcoming America’ which I saw in June 2013. The seedling is the migrant, the soil is your town. LOL! I guess ‘Welcoming America’ is shoveling them in! http://welcomingrefugees.org/sites/default/files/documents/resources/2014%20Welcoming%20Institute%20Powerpoint.pdf

Let’s start with ‘Welcoming America’ a community organizing group headed by David Lubell that sprang from a seed in Nashville, TN and was watered initially with funding from a George Soros group.  We told you about them here.

In June 2013, it was the first time we heard this ‘seeds and soil’ concept that Sue reported to Mark Levin.  In the “emergent” immigrant communities, the new immigrants (newly amnestied and refugees) are the “seedlings” and your town is the soil.

Will the “seedlings” ultimately take over the host?

At that June 2013 Office of Refugee Resettlement “stakeholder” meeting in Lancaster, PA, we learned for the first time that the federal government had contracted ‘Welcoming America’ to get peoples’ minds right especially in areas where “pockets of resistance” (their words!) had formed.

Here is what I said about that presentation by ‘Welcoming America’ in June 2013:

“Welcoming America is on the case!  They want to “transform” communities by “Building a Nation of Neighbors”!

Downs-Karkos described her organization’s job as “promoting understanding and support for refugees.”  The whole concept is that YOU must improve your attitude to your new neighbors, not that the refugees must learn to fit into American society.  We are a Nation of immigrants, they are coming, so get used to it was the basic message.

The refugees and immigrants are the seeds and your community is the soil into which they are being planted is how she described what is happening.  Her group is working on improving the soil.”

We have been chronicling ‘Welcoming America’ and David Lubell’s activities for nearly two years, click here for our complete archive.   See especially that when Obama recently visited Nashville, community organizer Lubell was invited on Air Force One.

Go here to see if your city/county is working with Welcoming America!  See which states have “Welcoming Affiliates” here.

Changing the definition of “refugee”

photo3

They are changing the legal definition of “refugee!”

Obama and his cabal of Open Borders agitators are working to further blur definitions involving categories of legal immigration (eg refugees) and illegal aliens something that is already very confusing to the average American and often the media as well.

Besides the ‘seedling and the soil’ imagery, Sue reported that the task force seeking to change America wants to transform all of the newly amnestied aliens into “refugees.”

That is an integral part of the plan which we have been saying is the real goal behind the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ invasion of the border—Obama, Munoz, Lubell and the gang want them all designated as refugees!  Why? Because refugees have all forms of welfare (including health care) available to them while other classes of immigrants (both legal and illegal do not) and they are on a fast track to citizenship.

That is the point (the refugee definition change) we were trying to make on Fox & Friends earlier this month, here.   Refugees are legally defined as being outside their own country and must prove that they fear returning home because they are persecuted for race, religion or political persuasion.   Economic migrants are not refugees!  The alien “children” are not refugees!

I wrapped up the interview with this line (notice I did not use the words “illegal immigration.”):

“I also think that immigration is our existential threat in this country, both [because of] the numbers and who we are bringing in.”

It is not just Obama!

Finally, remember this “seeding” concept has been going on for decades through Presidents of both parties as the US State Department and its contractors (all nine are progressive, six of them represent the “religious Left”) have been seeding communities with refugees — see our post just this week about how over 60 towns in Minnesota have been “salted” (I should have said “seeded!”) with Somalis.  Obama is just taking it to a new level.

By the way, I will bet the contractors*** were on that Task Force on New Americans conference call too!

Speaking of language—you are a racist if you don’t want to be replaced!

Again, they control the language:  If you aren’t “welcoming” then that means to them you are unwelcoming=racist, redneck, xenophobic, nativist boob.  Such language sends most good people running for cover.  Or, in the case of politicians, especially Republican ones, they virtually wet their pants out of fear while Obama and the progressives move forward with their agenda of replacing you!

*** I wonder do the refugee resettlement contractors care about legitimate refugees as they sell-out to the Open Borders movement by supporting amnesty for millions?

Catholic Bishops, other “religious” refugee resettlement contractors might soon be out of business thanks to Obama

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 26, 2015

…..Or, will they give up their moral convictions on abortion in exchange for cold hard federal cash!

The Bishops and Catholic Charities between a rock and a hard place. Moral of the story: When you take Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!

We previously told you about Obama’s pen (rule change) that would require any agency getting federal payola to abide by federal rules on sexual orientation of employees.  I’m not sure this is part of that same Executive order, but it is the same concept—take federal money, follow federal rules.

Remember readers (and for our many new readers!), the US Conference of Catholic Bishops gets 98% of its funding from the US Treasury.  See here also.

This should be a great lesson for all who want to put their grubby hands into the taxpayers’ pockets!  You do it and the government then owns you!

From World Magazine (no where in the story is it mentioned how much these ‘religious’ charities get from the feds).  They have until June 24th to comply or lose their federal grants:

The Obama administration has issued interim final rules that require faith-based organizations to offer abortion referrals for unaccompanied child refugees entering the United States. The new regulations may restrict faith-based organizations’ ability to provide refugee aid, Catholic and evangelical relief organizations said.

Issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, the rules set official standards for responding to sexual abuse among children entering the United States without their parents. But by requiring faith-based organizations to offer or refer abortions, the Obama administration has violated the organizations’ conscience rights, said Susan Yoshihara, senior vice president at the Center for Family and Human Rights. Currently, six of the nine resettlement organizations in the United States are faith-based.

If the six ‘religious’ refugee contractors use their own private funds they would not have their CONSCIENCES violated!

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) formally protested the rules Friday, joined by World Vision, National Association of Evangelicals, World Relief, and Catholic Relief Services.  [So where is Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, one of the largest recipients of federal cash for the “children.”  Not interested in their moral convictions.—ed]

The organizations stressed their commitment to their moral convictions, though hoping to resolve the conflict between the rules and their pro-life beliefs.

See all of our coverage of the ‘Unaccompanied minors’ issue, here.  The USCCB is one of the largest recipients of federal funds to care for the kids and has been for a number of years.  In 2014, 58,000 ‘unaccompanied minors’ entered the US which means, of course, that there is a lot of federal $$$ sloshing around to care for them.

Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch): Wouldn’t you think that cutting off the spigot of Islamic immigration would be part of any plan to keep us safe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has yet another important read about the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department and he quotes Islam expert Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch asking that fundamental question about the Obama Administration’s “comprehensive approach” to taking on the ISIS/Islamist threat to America.

World Net Daily (emphasis is mine):

Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson warned that a Somalia-based terrorist group is encouraging “independent actors” to carry out attacks in Western countries, with the Mall of America in Minnesota among the specific targets, but he failed to mention that the U.S. continues to import hundreds of high-risk Islamic refugees from Somalia every month.

Like so many outside the State Department, I’m going to bet that Homeland Security chief Johnson has no real understanding of the more than three-decade-old refugee resettlement program that is responsible for a large percentage of the Muslim population in the US.

The U.S. State Department’s refugee-resettlement program has placed more than 100,000 Somalis into U.S cities and towns since the early 1990s – all of them Muslims hand-selected by the United Nations refugee agency. And Minnesota has become the most popular destination, with secondary hotspots in Maine, Ohio, Colorado and southern California. More than 800 new refugees from Somalia arrive in the United States every month, according to Refugee Resettlement Watch.

The constant influx has earned parts of Minneapolis the nickname “Little Mogadishu.”

Johnson told CNN Sunday that terrorist groups such as Somalia-based al-Shabab are “relying more and more on independent actors to become inspired” and “attack on their own.”

But he made no mention in any of his interviews on Sunday morning news shows of the program that brings these potential “independent actors” to the U.S. in the first place.

Johnson said there was a need for a “comprehensive” approach to fighting the ever-present threat posed by terror groups, including al-Shabab and the Islamic State or ISIS.

One would think that cutting off the spigot of Islamic immigration would play a role in any truly comprehensive approach, said Islam expert Robert Spencer, who runs the JihadWatch blog at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

To talk about tackling the problem without addressing the refugee pipeline is disingenuous, Spencer said.

“The government’s ‘concern’ about these threats is completely undercut by the Obama administration’s immigration policies,” said Spencer. “More than 800 Somalis a month are entering the country.”

[….]

In fiscal year 2014 the U.S. admitted 9,000 Somali refugees. In the first four months of fiscal 2015 the U.S. admitted 3,536 new Somali refugees, or 884 per month.

 

Be sure to read the whole article and see what Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugged) and Debra Anderson, a resident of Minneapolis, had to say!

See our latest stats on which states have received the most Somali refugees in the last ten years.

In Sweden, job training program may be ISIS recruitment opportunity

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 23, 2015

Sigh!  Sweden (apparently using a Marie Harf counter-terrorism job training program) runs into a little problem!  The program is being shut down while authorities investigate if the unemployed ‘refugees’ were being recruited for ISIS.

Someone tell Obama! Takfiris believe in Islam strictly according to their interpretation of Muhammad’s and his companions’ actions and statements, and do not accept any deviation from their path; they reject any reform or change to their interpretation of religion as it was revealed in the time of the prophet. Photo: http://presstv.com/Detail/2015/02/13/397358/Norwegians-among-top-ISIL-cmdrs

From Press TV:

Sweden has cancelled a job training program for new immigrants following reports that the program coaches were recruiting people for Takfiri terrorist groups.

“We have been alerted by participants that coaches have tried to recruit them to terrorist organizations,” Patrik Svensson, spokesman for Sweden’s National Labor Agency, said on Friday.

Svensson added that the agency had informed Sweden’s security service about the suspicious activities in the training program.

According to the Swedish official, the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group might be behind the recruitment.

The program was initiated in 2010 to tackle the high unemployment rate among new immigrants in Sweden.

For more on what the word Takfiri means, see wikipedia here.  That is where we found the photo caption.
