The Syrians Obama is importing are not helpless, apathetic pawns who hate terrorism. In fact, less than ten percent of Syrians polled in 2007 opposed Islamic terrorism.
To emphasize the seriousness of the impending “refugee” situation in America: 98.6 percent of Obama’s Syrian refugees are Sunni Muslims who are the most likely to support ISIS and al-Qaeda.
Make no mistake: bringing Syrian Muslims to America is essentially importing an entire population of young men who hate Americans.
A U.K.-based market research firm, ORB International, polled Syrians this summer and found that 1 in 5 Syrians supports ISIS. One third of Syrians support the Al Nusra Front, which is affiliated with al-Qaeda. Since Sunnis equate to three quarters of the population and Shiites and Christians aren’t likely to support either group, Sunni Muslims are now even more likely to support both terror groups than the poll numbers indicate.
Even in 2007, a poll showed that 77 percent of Syrians supported financing Islamic terrorists including Hamas and the Iraqi fighters who evolved into ISIS.
Sixty-three percent wanted Syria to refuse medical and humanitarian assistance from the U.S. — and didn’t want any American help caring for Iraqi refugees in Syria.
The vast majority of Syrians turned down any form of assistance from the U.S. because they hated America. They still do. Just because some might accept aid now, doesn’t mean they like Americans.
Syrian men are more likely to view ISIS positively than women. This isn’t surprising as the Islamic State not only institutionalizes sex slavery, but enforces ruthless restrictions for women, exceeding even those of Saudi Arabia. (However, al-Qaeda’s Al Nusra Front receives equal support from Syrian men and women.)
ISIS is supported the most by young men who fit the Syrian refugee demographic.
In the areas where Syrian refugees are coming from to America– support for al-Qaeda groups climbs as high as 70 percent in Idlib; 66 percent in Quneitra; 66 percent in Raqqa; 47 percent in Derzor; 47 percent in Hasakeh; 41 percent in Daraa; and 41 percent in Aleppo.
The 70 percent support for ISIS in Raqqa has been dismissed as the result of fear. But if Syrians in the ISIS capital were only afraid of ISIS, why would the Al Nusra Front, which ISIS is fighting, get nearly as high a score from the same people?
The answer is that the Syrian support for al-Qaeda is real. Apologists will claim that these numbers don’t apply to the Syrian refugees. It’s hard to say how true that is. Only 13 percent of Syrian refugees will admit to supporting ISIS.
However, 13 percent still means– at a minimum– that of Obama’s first 10,000 refugees, 1,300 will support ISIS. Keep in mind the 2015 summer poll doesn’t delve into their views of other al-Qaeda groups, such as the Al Nusra Front, which usually gets more Sunni Muslim support.
There’s also no sign that these Syrians have rejected Islamic terrorism or their hatred for America.
When Syrian refugees were asked to identify their greatest threat, 29 percent chose Iran; 22 percent chose Israel; and 19 percent chose America. Only 10 percent viewed Islamic terrorism as a great threat.
By way of comparison, twice as many Iraqis see Islamic terrorism as a greater threat than Syrians; and slightly more Palestinian Arabs view Islamic terrorism as a greater threat than Syrians. These numbers should provide a glaring red flag to everyone in Congress, let alone Obama.
Worse still, consider that 37 percent of Syrian refugees oppose U.S. airstrikes on ISIS, and 33 percent oppose the objective of destroying ISIS.
These are the people politicians would have American citizens believe are “fleeing an ISIS Holocaust.”
Seventy-three percent of Syrian refugees view U.S. foreign policy negatively. That’s a higher number than Iraqis. It’s about equal to that of Palestinian Arabs.
They don’t like Americans. Actually, they really don’t like Americans.
Obama’s first import of Syrians will include 1,300 ISIS supporters and most of the rest will hate America. But unless they’re stupid enough to announce that during their interviews, the “vetting” Obama and other politicians boast about will be useless.
It only took two Muslim refugees to carry out the Boston Marathon massacre. It only took 19 Muslim terrorists to carry out 9/11.
If only one percent of the 1,300 Syrian ISIS supporters puts their belief into practice, they can still kill thousands of Americans.
And that’s a best case scenario. Because it doesn’t account for how many thousands of Syrian refugees support al-Qaeda. It doesn’t account for how many support other Islamic terrorist groups like Hamas, which had widespread support in Syria.
While the media has shamelessly attempted to exploit the Holocaust to rally support for Syrian migrants, the majority of Syrians supported Hamas whose mandate is finishing Hitler’s work. The Hamas charter describes a “struggle against the Jews” that culminates in another Holocaust. Bringing Hamas supporters to America will lead to more Muslim Supremacist violence against Jews in America, who are already the number one victim of hate crimes in America.
Obama and Paul Ryan have claimed that a “religious test” for refugees is wrong, but religious tests are used to determine whether a refugee is genuinely fleeing persecution or is an economic migrant.
Obama insists on taking in fake Syrian refugees, mainly Sunni Muslims from U.N. camps who support terrorism and are not endangered in the Sunni majority countries of Jordan and Turkey.
These Sunni Muslims do not face persecution. They are the majority. They are the persecutors. They support terrorism and destroyed their own country. Now they want to destroy America.
Yet all the while, Obama neglects the real refugees, who’ve needed America’s help the most: the Christians and Yazidis. They are stateless and persecuted by Muslims, being slaughtered and enslaved by ISIS, facing real genocide.
Yet, during the entire Syrian war, Obama has only taken in one Syrian Yazidi and 53 Christians.
It’s time for America to have a refugee policy that protects the persecuted, instead of protecting the Muslim persecutors. It’s time for America to listen to Syrian Christians already in America, who oppose bringing tens of thousands of Syrian Muslims to terrorize their neighborhoods– in the same way they are already terrorizing Syrian Christians in Germany.
