German Jewish group says migration of Muslims into Germany must be “limited”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

So, I guess we are seeing the limits of some Jewish leaders in Europe as an Austrian Jewish group has also called for a halt to the Muslim migration which shows no sign of slowing down.


Rebuke from German NO Borders Leftwing activist Guenther Burkhardt (Pro-Asyl). Complains that the Jews are joining the rightwing.

Gee, I sure wish they could persuade the Jewish US resettlement contractor, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, that the majority of Muslims don’t like you (in fact they hate you!).  Sheer insanity…..

HIAS is pushing for 100,000 mostly Muslim Syrians to be resettled in the US.

From AFP at

Berlin (AFP) – The Central Council of Jews in Germany called Monday for a limit to the migrant influx because of problems with integrating the mainly Muslim newcomers, earning a quick rebuke from a pro-refugee charity.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has opened the doors to asylum seekers fleeing conflict in Syria, and arrivals from the war-torn country and other trouble spots are expected to reach one million this year.

“Sooner or later we won’t have a choice but to set an upper limit,” the council’s president Josef Schuster told Die Welt daily.

“Many of the refugees are fleeing the terror of the Islamic State and want to live in peace and freedom, but at the same time they come from cultures where hatred of Jews and intolerance are an integral part.


But German non-government group Pro Asyl criticised Schuster’s comments, saying it was unfortunate the Jewish group was sharing the same position as the conservative Bavarian CSU party.

Photo:  We have written about Burkhardt before, here in 2014, when he was working to silence “right-wing propaganda” long before the migration became a full-fledged invasion.   Readers, that post was over 18 months ago demonstrating that German leaders knew long ago what the results of their “welcoming” posture would be to the third-world.  They had plenty of time to stop it if they had any guts and the will to do it.

Canada: Military thrown out of barracks to make room for Syrian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2015

The new hard Left Canadian government is hell-bent on bringing in 25,000 Syrians in a little over a month.  Apparently unable to find housing for them, they will be housed in military barracks across Canada.

From CTV News:


Canadian military moving out of barracks so Syrians can move in!

Soldiers and military personnel at a Kingston, Ont. base are being asked to clear their barracks to make room for an early wave of Syrian refugees arriving in just over a week, CTV News has learned.

Multiple residences at CFB Kingston are being cleared for Nov. 30 to house the refugees, according to an internal memo obtained by CTV News.

The orders will also affect some officer cadets attending the Royal Military College, many of whom are nearing exams.

Where will the military be resettled? CTV News continues….


When boys run countries….

And while the memo warns of the fast-approaching deadline, it does not indicate where military personnel will be resettled.

However, it does say a place will be found for the personnel.

The notice comes just two days after Minister of Immigration and Refugees John McCallum reaffirmed the government’s plan to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2015.

There is more, read it all!  The story mentions “health” concerns, so it appears they are a little worried about containing some potentially contagious diseases.  Lucky Canadian citizens!

Note in the story that the UN is picking their refugees, so the vast majority will be Sunni Muslims.

Maine governor working to stem the flow of welfare to migrants/asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2015

We have written about this Maine problem with the flood of migrants into the state—some are resettled refugees, but others are asylum seekers who have flocked there to enjoy the generosity of Maine’s social service programs while waiting out the legal asylum process.  (See my discussion of asylum in an earlier post this morning.)

Here is the latest news, from LifeZette (subheading:  Immigrants immediately eligible for welfare, displacing seniors and the needy):

Maine’s Somali community is adding more diversity to the state — and huge new costs, according to a top state official.


Health and Human Services Commissioner Mary Mayhew was on the Laura Ingraham show. Flood of migrants impacting Maine elderly.

Maine’s huge number of refugees and asylum-seekers are heavy welfare users and are putting significant economic strain on the state, Health and Human Services Commissioner Mary Mayhew.

Speaking on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Mayhew rejected an argument by a local media outlet that the state’s Somali community could be Maine’s savior.

“Overall, we have seen an increased burden to the infrastructure and the welfare programs in the face of other significant competing priorities for this state, especially related to our rapidly aging population, our elderly,” she said.

Maine has been a popular destination for refugees in recent years, mostly from Somalia and other African countries. Lewiston and Portland have taken the most, with Lewiston’s mayor recently speaking out about the fiscal impact on his city.


Maine Gov. Paul LePage has led a drive to reform social welfare programs for refugees and citizens alike. Since taking office, food stamp use is down by 58,000 people. Fewer people are on Medicaid, as well, Mayhew said.

Here is a great idea for your state!

Mayhew noted that a new work requirement for food stamps for able-bodied people between the ages of 18 and 49 with no children — which included an option of volunteering just one hour a day — knocked many off the program for failure to comply.


Mayhew said LePage has fought against granting welfare benefits to illegal immigrants who have applied for asylum.

More here.

Is your state giving welfare benefits to asylum seekers?  At the federal level that is prohibited.

We have a huge archive on Maine, click here to learn more.  See especially a 2009 post we wrote about how Somalis initially found Maine’s generous welfare system and headed in droves to Lewiston.

Arabs in Dearborn support governor’s decision to curtail Syrian refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2015

Yesterday we reported that many Christian Syrian immigrants in Allentown, PA oppose resettlement of the mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians in the pipeline to America, and now look at this!  The mostly Shiite Muslims in the Dearborn area don’t want the Sunni Syrians there either!

Muslims against ISIS

Dearborn Muslims protest ISIS in 2014. ISIS is Sunni, many Dearborn Muslims are Shiite. Obama doesn’t seem to care that we are admitting to the US both sides of the centuries’ old conflict in the refugee stream. Photo:

Before you read this latest news, be sure to check our recent post—98% of Syrians admitted so far are Sunni Muslims (ISIS is Sunni as is al-Qaeda).

From NBC News (what is happening to the MSM, are they starting to get-it?):

They’re not rolling out the welcome wagon for the Syrian refugees in the Arab immigrant enclave of Dearborn, Michigan.

And some longtime residents told NBC News they even agree with Gov. Rick Snyder’s decision to suspend efforts to bring the long-suffering Syrians to his state after last week’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

“We don’t need no more troubles, you know?” said Hicham Dawil, who immigrated to the U.S. three decades ago. “I feel bad for the people. On the other hand, look what’s happening in France. This is crazy, you know. It’s just evil.”

Dawil, a father of five college-aged kids all born here who runs his own heating and cooling business, said the ISIS attacks turned his stomach and the fallout affects him as an Arab immigrant.

“We just cannot afford being looked at like, ‘Oh, well, you are one of them,'” he said. “Let’s say I walk into a lounge … I can see people look at me.”

So Dawil supports Snyder’s move “100 percent.”

There is much more here.

Canadian Libs to announce Tuesday how they will bring in 25,000 Syrians in next 6 weeks

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2015


The boy wonder, Justin Trudeau, promised 25,000 Syrian refugees would be admitted by year-end. If they take the ones picked by the UNHCR they will be virtually all Sunni Muslim. Photo:


Sigh…. Really feeling sorry for Canada.

From The Spectator:

OTTAWA — How the Liberal government intends to bring thousands of Syrian refugees to Canada by year’s end will become clear Tuesday with the rollout of the plan for the largest rapid resettlement program in the country’s history.

Federal ministers would not divulge any elements of the proposal Friday or comment on a document obtained by The Canadian Press that suggests the cost of the program could hit $1.2 billion, far more than the $250 million the Liberals budgeted in their platform to resettle 25,000 Syrian refugees.

Almost 15,000 Burmese Muslims brought to US in last ten years

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2015

Yesterday, Obama was in Malaysia promising that our doors were open to Burmese Muslims known as the Rohingya.

Here are some numbers for you.  I went back ten fiscal years.  The vast majority of the refugees we take from Burma (aka Myanmar) are Christians.  See data base here (you will have to choose your parameters).  I ran data for FY2006 to FY2015.

Buddhist monks

In 2013 Buddhist monks protested efforts by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to get a foothold in Burma. “No Sharia Law” said monks not at all concerned with political correctness. Photo:

We took 149,020 total ‘refugees’ from Burma, presumably because they were being persecuted by the majority Buddhist nation.  The largest number we’ve taken in are Christians of various sorts, but we did take over 22,000 Buddhists (I thought the Buddhist nation was throwing out their minorities so this doesn’t make sense to me).

What I really wanted to know was how many Burmese Muslims/Rohingya we have been admitting.

By the way, when Trump and other candidates mention their worries about Syrian Muslims they need to be educated on the FACT that hundreds of thousands of other Muslims are being admitted as refugees—such as the Somalis and the Iraqis (now both over 100,000 each).

In the last ten fiscal years we have admitted 14,695 Burmese Muslims to the US.

Here is the year-by-year breakdown:

FY ’06: 33

FY ’07: 2,034

FY’08: 2,816

FY’09: 1,273

FY’10: 910

FY’11: 771

FY’12: 759

FY’13: 1,064

FY’14: 1,209

FY’15: 3,809  (looks like they have kicked into high gear)

And so far in FY’16 we have admitted 17

For everything you want to know about Rohingya, click here for archive with 183 previous posts on this Muslim ethnic group.  See especially here in 2013 when we reported that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops was lobbying the US State Dept. to admit more Rohingya.

Malaysia: Obama (today) meets with Rohingya (Burmese) Muslims on way to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 21, 2015

This story is a Drudge headline this morning:  Obama defiant: vows more refugees.

***Update*** November 22:  Almost 15,000 Burmese Muslim came in as refugees in last ten years, here.

He is in Malaysia, a safe Muslim country which is sending Rohingya Muslims (who arrive there illegally) to America!  So while we have anxiety about Syrian Muslims coming to the US, remember the US resettlement program has been bringing in Muslims from Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Burma (and other countries) for years.

Esar Met evil face

Meet Esar Met a Burmese Muslim sentenced to life in prison in Utah in 2014 when he was found guilty of brutally raping and murdering a little Christian Burmese girl in his Salt Lake City apartment complex. The medical examiner testified that she died in excruciating pain. Shame on the mainstream media for never reporting on this case outside of Utah.

The Rohingya are especially fundamentalist Muslims we have been following for 8 years.  We have an extensive archive (Rohingya Reports) with 182 previous posts just on the situation in Burma and surrounding countries with the Rohingya.  (Want to write a book on Rohingya?  Your research is right here on these pages!)

In 2013 we reported that Anastasia Brown, on behalf to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, lobbied the US State Department to allow Rohingya Muslims to enter the US with a P-2 Designation meaning that they need not prove individually that they are persecuted, but that they would be admitted to the US as a class.

In other words, all they need do is say:  I am Rohingya and they are eligible for resettlement in your towns and cities.

Thousands are already here.   In our earliest years of reporting on Rohingya, the US State Department was not admitting them for fear that terrorists were among them.   All that has changed.

See the AP story at Myway:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Pushing back against efforts to bar Syrian refugees from resettling in the U.S., President Barack Obama vowed Saturday that his country will be a welcoming place for millions fleeing violence around the world “as long as I’m president.”

Obama commented Saturday at a learning center in the Malaysian capital that serves the poor, including some refugees. He met with boys and girls wearing crisp white and black uniforms and neckties as they sat at tables and worked on painting and puzzle projects.


Most of the children the president met with are Rohingya, a Muslim ethnic group. Tens of thousands of Rohingya have fled Myanmar to escape persecution by the country’s Buddhist majority, with many ending up in Malaysia, where Obama was attending a regional economic summit.


The refugees Obama met with have all been cleared to come to the U.S. and have been assigned to specific cities, the White House said.

Earlier this year we reported that 12,615 Burmese Muslims had been admitted to the US in the last ten year.  I’ll have to do an update of those numbers when I get a minute (Ha!).  BTW, the majority population of Burma (aka Myanmar) is Buddhist and they want the country to remain majority Buddhist.  Even the famed human rights activist from Burma has angered the humanitarian industrial complex by not speaking out on behalf of rights for Rohingya.

See why Obama is angry (in my opinion). His job was to get them in here as part of the UN agenda, and he has hit a roadblock!—YOU!

Addendum:  How could I forget.  Hillary has been touting her ‘success’ in Burma while Secretary of State.  Then why are we taking thousands of Burmese Muslims to the US if she has done such a good job?  You must see this post!  Podesta Group sent to Burma to shore up her image!

Great map and summary of state/city positions on Syrian resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 21, 2015

In one short week, everything has changed in the political landscape around the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, so much so that I’ve lost track!  Here is a good US map and description (as of Thursday, the 19th).  I know 48 hours is a long time ago considering how fast things are moving, so send a comment to this post if your state has since changed its position, or if you have anything new to add.

From Citylab (hat tip: Jim):

map with states and mayors


Go here for more.  If you live in one of the green states, you need to let your governors know how you feel!


Check our archives on that Virginia city, they have had their share of problems with refugees over the years.  See especially the stories about the refugees (sent to prison in 2009) for planning to kidnap for ransom some prominent women in the town.

Come on mayors!  We need some of you who have complained in the past to step forward now!

Allentown, PA: Syrian Christian community is NOT “welcoming” Syrian Muslim refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 21, 2015

You just knew it had to be so, and I’m actually amazed that the Associated Press even wrote this story.  Incredible!

We previously told you about the discord in Allentown, PA as the local Lutheran contractor was surprised to see angry Tea Partiers show up a recent meeting.  But, at that time we were being told that Allentown was ideal because of its large “welcoming” Syrian community.

Tom Wolf PA

Pennsylvania Governor, Dem. Tom Wolf said in a statement that PA will continue to welcome the mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians to the state (even if the Syrian Christians are worried?):

In fact Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told that gathering at Georgetown we attended that the Syrian American community was opening its arms to the new refugees—well maybe not so much!

[After the first six weeks of FY2016 admissions, PA is number six of the 50 states receiving 98% Muslim Syrian refugees, see here.]

Syrian Christian:  We need to know who we are welcoming!

Here is the AP story at CBS News (What gives? MSM news outlets posting a story that doesn’t fit the Administration’s narrative!):

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — A few days ago, a pastor asked Syrian-born restaurant owner Marie Jarrah to donate food to a welcoming event for recently arrived Syrian refugees. Jarrah, who said she regularly helps people in need, declined.

Like many of Allentown’s establishment Syrians, she doesn’t think it’s a good idea to bring refugees to the city. She clung to that view even before last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris. “Problems are going to happen,” said Jarrah, co-owner of Damascus Restaurant in a heavily Syrian enclave.

As debate intensifies nationally over the federal government’s plan to accept an additional 10,000 refugees from war-ravaged Syria, a similar argument is taking place in Allentown – one with a sectarian twist.

Pennsylvania’s third-largest city is home to one of the nation’s largest populations of Syrians. They are mostly Christian and, in no small number, support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad – a dynamic that’s prompting some of them to oppose the resettlement of refugees, who are Muslim and say they fled violence perpetrated by the Assad regime.

Aziz Wehbey, an Allentown auto dealer and president of the American Amarian Syrian Charity Society, worries some Syrian refugees might have taken part in the fighting in Syria’s civil war and have “blood on their hands.”

“We need to know who we are welcoming in our society,” said Wehbey, who immigrated to the United States a quarter-century ago and became a citizen.

The article does go on to say some Christians are coming around.

One of the myths we have tried to explode over the years here at RRW is this idea that America is one big happy melting pot and that we can shoehorn many disparate cultures and races together (who have been fighting for hundreds of years where they came from) and expect them to live happily ever after in America.

We have reported case after case of clashes for example between African Americans and the new African refugees as they are shoved together in inner city neighborhoods.  Now we are going to see if Middle Eastern Muslims will live side by side with Middle Eastern Christians.

Why would tensions be less here than they were in Syria?  They won’t, and it’s this liberal clap-trap we must expose!

UNHCR freak-out as Balkan states start to balk

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

This story is confusing to me.  Actually it discusses THE big question I have, and I have not seen any good explanation for what could happen.

migrant route map

First, we hear reports that Sweden and Germany are closing their borders.  If that is so, and is happening already (or will happen), eventually what will become of all those migrants working their way northward?  Won’t they build up as water might behind a dam?

Maybe these Balkan states are getting ready for that inevitable outcome.

Earlier this morning I saw this confusing (to me) report at the UNHCR website, here.    So I looked for a more understandable news story and found this one at The Guardian.    It still doesn’t answer my question, but does help to lay out the problem.

Have a quick look at the UNHCR interactive map that shows the migrant flow on a daily basis (yesterday 4,499 new refugees arrived in Greece) and imagine if the spigot gets shut off at the German/Austrian border or the Austria/Slovenia border, then what?  All of those flowing northward will inevitably pile up in those states ‘downstream’ right?

And, I guess what those countries downstream are saying is that they don’t want thousands of economic migrants (they are NOT refugees) piled up in their countries.  But, they will get a logjam of legitimate asylum seekers anyway.  EU leaders should have stopped the boats months ago, it all seems too little too late to me!

Here is what The Guardian is reporting:

Countries along the Balkan migration trail have begun refusing to admit people of certain nationalities, amid a backlash against refugees in the aftermath of the Paris attacks last Friday.

Humanitarian workers active along the borders of Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia reported that refugees and migrants from countries other than Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq were now being stopped, raising the spectre of a migrant logjam in Greece.

The move comes after Slovenia, the most northerly country along the trail, suddenly tried to return 168 Moroccan migrants to Croatia on Thursday, in the first major development along the Balkan migration route since Hungary shut its border in September.  [Moroccan’s are not refugees, they are not being persecuted!—ed]

The decision sparked panic among the countries to Slovenia’s south, who feared that Slovenia was about to block access to anyone who could not easily prove their need for refugee status, and consequently turned back all migrants from Africa and southern Asia.

Slovenia said on Thursday afternoon it had not made any permanent decisions, and promised to admit refugees as long as Germany and Austria continued to subsequently take them. But a police spokesman confirmed that Slovenia would discuss with its Balkan neighbours how to limit the flow of so-called economic migrants in the future.

More here.

The great build up behind a dam seems inevitable to me.  One day Germany will stop the flow and surely Austria will too then and the pile up will happen in those countries less able to manage any of this invasion.  Is anyone planning for this likely outcome?
