WASHINGTON — President Obama, under increasing pressure to demonstrate that the United States is joining European nations in the effort to resettle Syrian refugees, has told his administration to take in at least 10,000 displaced Syrians over the next year.

Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said in a briefing Thursday that while the administration was continuing to examine responses to a refugee crisis that has overwhelmed Europe in recent days, the president has decided to raise the number of Syrian refugees admitted to at least 10,000 in the fiscal year beginning in October from fewer than 2,000 this year.

sorry, but this is unacceptable. islam is utterly incompatible with democracy, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion.

sure, only 10% of them really really want to kill us, but that's still 1,000 people.

aid them somewhere else, just don't bring them here!

i don't think bible has a chapter on setting up a government.

There is no religious hindu text which talks about governance.

you need to look closer, its loaded with governmental objectives. Chock full, in fact.

I'm still trying to recall those incidents where Irish, Italians , Chinese and Japanese people funded terrorism in their native countries. I'm still trying to remember when Japanese people went back to Japan during WWII to become kamikaze fighters or those who openly expressed great delight in pearl harbor. Which Irish and Italians killed in the name of religion, with the exception of the IRA in Northern Ireland? Chinese spies are a tad bit more 'terrorist' than their Indian counterparts in this country but nowhere near the threat of the 1% of radicals in the name of Islam. The 99% of moderate muslims defer to them.

In all seriousness, any links to the latter from anyone else to the contrary would be greatly appreciated

The hundreds of thousands of young Muslim men invading Europe aren't refugees. They're an invading army. Country after country has had to close its borders to them after the tide of looting burning rapists came through terrorizing their citizens. This army might not have guns, but anyone who thinks that doesn't make them dangerous is a fool. Their most tolerant and well-meaning mission is to settle in Europe, get as many wives from the local population as possible, and breed like lemmings until they've displaced the locals. Then they'll be in a position to write whatever laws they desire. It's just a matter of 25 years or so and they'll be the clear majority. This invasion has been planned for a while and it's taking place now. European leaders are complicit. They know what they are doing and they know why. Europe will fall not to the crash and boom of guns and bombs, but to the sound of a baby crying and the static wail from a minorette. All this will be accomplished in the name of that great sacred cow "multiculturalism."

the IRA does not kill for religious reasons at all. they don't care if you become catholic or not.

they simply want to unify their own country and get equal rights. that said, it's a horrible disaster for their cause that they ever set off bombs to kill civilians.

Hitler says the same about Jews: they never adopt the nationality of countries they inhabit.

jews do resist assimilation (not all that successfully lately). but what they do not do is:

1. attempt to impose jewish religious law on everyone
2. murder you if you use freedom of speech to criticise them
3. murder you if you leave judaism
4. deliberately murder random civilians in their host countries

Rough cut plan...

0- Surround isis held territory with massive NATO forces to contain them and make it impossible for them to escape.
1- create refugee cities in syria/iraq
2- Heavily fortify them with NATO forces, 100,000 or so, making it impossible for isis to penetrate
3- redirect all refugees to these places. Vet each one as much as possible to minimize the amount of sleeper cells.
4- Have the world contribute to food/water/shelter to keep the place going indefinitely.
5- Set a date to which refugees must evacuate isis held areas
6- Bring in the b52's and level the places to the ground.
7- Send in NATO ground troops to clean up the survivors.
8- Have the refugees rebuild and restock the land
9- Rinse and repeat until the majority wake up and enter the 21st century.

I would guess it's even high because the poll probably didn't sample as many Syrians from the East of the country, due to ISIS control, where Sunni Islam dominates and hatred of Alawites, Kurds, and Shi'a is more prevalent.

They are overwhelmingly young men, and many of them are married and left their wives and children in MENA. Also, a huge number are non-Syrians pretending to be Syrian, by ditching their own passports in the sea. Authorities are reporting hilarious cases of black-as-midnight Eritreans and Somalis claiming to be Syrian. Multiple Copies of one of the Paris attackers' fake passport, same name and personal information but different photo, have been found in Europe in the hands of other migrants.

Like I said earlier - sending young British Males to South America 1939-1945 would contribute to an Allied Loss, not a Victory. Why accept young male Syrians?

Plenty of refugees get involved with Terror, like Mohamed Osman Mohamud.

Not to mention all the terror cases that aren't called terror, like Muhammad Abdulaziz .

And of course the Boston Bombers, also Refugees. Multiple US authorities knew all about their radicalism, but figured they were more of a threat to Russia and didn't bother tracking them closely.

Name one person who has actually done that. Remarkable misdirection!

Calling someone's justified concern about the well-being of their family and loved-ones after the paris attacks and the history over the past years a fear-based program qualifies for me. We all know that the narrative is false that the refugees don't pose a threat. Patrick.net is full of posts and proof indicating otherwise. Now we can talk and speculate about how big of a security risk that is, but to say there is none is a blatant lie. I think careful vetting, letting in women and children only and possibly Christians (though this is of course hard to verify and can be spoofed) may be a decent middle-ground.

The vetting process is a joke. You get official records by bribing officials, which is how most official documentation in Third World Countries are created. There is no way to tell fake from real because both are done in the Government Office by the people who make the "real" documentations, on the same stationary with the same stamps.

Osama was once a little boy. The desire to remove oneself from a dangerous place to one that is safe is pretty basic need for a mother with children.

But according to the sources I've found no one who has gone through the process has committed any terrorist act in the US.

There's your problem. Anybody on the Interwebs can find sources (often driven by advocacy) they want to believe, and then imagine what they want to imagine. For example, a guy from HRW (an organization that I respect) claimed (falsely), "There’s 70,000 refugees coming to the United States every year, and not a single one has been involved in a terrorist incident." His claim had already been proven definitely false, beyond a reasonable doubt, but that didn't stop him from saying it. Thunderlips11 listed examples, and as I said before I've read of more. At some point, you have to engage critical analysis and judgment. Otherwise you end up like bgamall with his conspiracy theories, or partisans/sectarians who live in almost equally unreal parallel universes. Of course bgamall might say the dead and injured are all actors, and the arrests are fake or baseless, but his repeating it doesn't make it so. There have definitely been cases of Muslim refugees engaging in terrorism in the USA, including arrests and fatalities.

Here are two more for you:

"Former Iraqi Terrorists Living in Kentucky Sentenced for Terrorist Activities "

"The men were living in the United States and had been granted refugee status, despite their insurgency activities in Iraq and their role in attacking U.S. troops."

These are actual cases, convicted after being proved beyond a reasonable doubt. The fact that some advocates continue saying it's never happened shows those advocates cannot be trusted: they are either ignorant or lying.

In fact, even your own linked source acknowledges arrests and convictions, which makes me wonder why you stuck by your claim:

Nope. Already lost track.

BATON ROUGE- State leaders blasted the feds Monday for not alerting them about 14 Syrian refugees who were resettled in Louisiana. It's unclear when they arrived.

The majority of them are in the New Orleans area, but one came to Baton Rouge two months ago. WBRZ has learned Catholic Charities helped the refugee who settled in Baton Rouge, but said the immigrant left for another state after a couple of days, and they don't know where the refugee went since they don't track them.


http://www.wbrz.com/news/catholic-charities-helped-syrian-refugee-in-baton-rouge

So, the state didn't know they were resettled there. Nobody in authority knows even when they arrived. And the refugee left for another state according to a Charity organization, and nobody knows where the fuck they are, certainly not the Catholic Charities the government dumped them on, since it's not Father Maieye's job.

Just more neolibcon head pats. "Don't you worry about it." If a Neolibcon says Don't Worry, be very worried.

At some point, you have to engage critical analysis and judgment.

My critical analysis tools allowed me to differentiate between someone who entered through the refugee program (aka a refugee) from the child of someone who entered on a tourist visa (Boston bombers). Do you agree that there is a difference? Do you consider the Boston bombers to be refugees and think that they are proof that the refugee program does not work?

In addition to keeping an open and critical mind, it is important to not be swept up with the fear-driven crowd thinking that big tragic and dramatic events inspire. A lot of what we do as a society is reactionary and illogical. Events like 9/11 and the Paris attack bring that out in spades.

bgamall is on my ignore list, b/c he is a nut job spewing nonsense that is wrong in every sense of the word. Sometimes it's best to just ignore and not engage.

I haven't been selectively ignoring articles that are contrary to what I've posted. I just haven't found any.

Abdulazeez came over when he was 3 years old. Mohamed Osman Mohamud was recruited in the US, and that is how the FBI found him. I don't know how ether came into the country, and I don't know how old Mohamud was. These examples suggest that kids of people from these countries are susceptible to recruitment. These are examples of foreign born kids people turning bad, but it's not clear that they were refugees.

Reading to respond to your questions, I found this in the Washington Post:

"Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said the Tsarnaevs had received refugee status. The parents of the Tsarnaev brothers reached the United States on tourist visas and applied for asylum. To get asylum, an applicant must meet the definition of a refugee, but unlike a refugee he or she has already reached the United States and is subject to a different application process. After the Tsarnaevs obtained asylee status, they successfully applied for derivative asylee status for their children. The story has been corrected."

I had seen sources calling them refugees, but I can believe they were asylees instead.

The article that you linked to contradicted you.

Thanks for acknowledging that at least. Under the 14th Amendment, any kids born here are citizens, and surveys show 10% of Muslim Americans support the death penalty for cartoons of Mohammed. I've posted separately about the ongoing machete murders of writers and publishers in Bangladesh, for example. If you want to help the Muslim refugees who claim that they want to return to their homes, then advocate that they should be sheltered nearer to where they live, e.g. Saudi Arabia.
