What should we do about Refugees? It’s Time for our Leaders to Listen to the People

The latest outrage in Paris, coupled with the waves of illegal migrants invading Europe posing as refugees, seems not to have changed the determination of European leaders and our own President Obama to allow hundreds of thousands of migrants to continue streaming into the West. The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, just announced in Antalya, Turkey, where the Western leaders are meeting, that he fears the end of the Schengen Agreement, which allows free transit of peoples once they arrive within the EU. He also urges us not to judge the migrants by the actions of the 8 men who carried out a massacre in Paris.

Yet, it has already been revealed that at least three of the attackers were so-called “Syrian refugees”, two of whom were actually rescued from a  sinking boat off the coast of Greece!

And this week, Ben Rhodes, who is a national security adviser to Obama, told reporters that the US has a strong vetting system in place to weed out the terrorists from legitimate refugees. Nonsense! Our own FBI and intelligence services have already gone on the record warning us otherwise. And how do you vet a young man (as so many of these “refugees” are), who has no papers? Do you send a query to Bashar Assad’s secret police asking for a background and criminal records check?

What is becoming clearer by the day is that with each ISIS advance and bestial act of terror, our people, both here and in Europe, are saying, “No more”. Yet, our feckless leaders refuse to listen. Angela Merkel is hell bent on turning Germany into an Islamic hellhole. Already, Germany’s restive Muslim population has demanded an end to beer fests! The recent beer fest in Frankfurt required police guards because of fears that Muslims might disrupt it in their inimitable fashion. But that is the least of the problems.

And don’t be so quick to jump on Francois Hollande’s bandwagon. Yes, he declared a ruthless war against ISIS and French planes are launching air strikes in Syria. Yet it was this same French president who owes his election to the Muslim electorate. It is this same French president who treated Israeli president Bibi Netanyahu with so much disrespect when he had the “effrontery” to come to Paris less than a year ago to mourn the Jewish victims of the kosher market attack.

All of Europe Turns Out to Protest Against the Muslim InvadersNow, everywhere you look in Europe, people are organizing and marching to demand an end to this insanity and protection from their governments. Unlike here, they are risking their very freedom to speak out under the threat of criminal prosecution for “hate speech”. Europe is not the safe and charming place we grew up loving in the post war period. It is now rushing back into madness and soon, civil war.

Meanwhile, our Marxist president wants the US to accept “its fair share”, which is somewhere between 100-200,000.  Have we so soon forgotten the Boston Marathon attack courtesy of two “refugees” we gave asylum to? What just happened in Paris makes no difference to Obama.

It appears to me that Obama and his counterparts in Europe-Western Europe at least- want to transform our countries into Muslim majority lands. How ironic that the lone voices of sanity are coming from the former Soviet bloc nations of Eastern Europe, who are just beginning to enjoy the fruits of freedom. They are trying their best to keep the migrants out. Not that most want to stay in places like the Czech Republic or Slovenia. No, they are demanding to go to Germany or Sweden, the two most welcoming countries with the most welfare benefits.

It is time for our governments to listen to the people. I don’t mean to be partisan here, but Hillary Clinton and the two other stooges who are running for the Democratic nomination have already stated their support for bringing in more “refugees”. It is the Republicans who oppose it.

Make no mistake: We are in for a long siege, but the more of these so-called refugees we admit, the more attacks we will see in our own countries. It is just a matter of time before we see our next attack. Admit 100-200,000 “refugees” and I guarantee you some of them will murder innocent Americans.

The longer Europe waits to do the sensible thing and halt this wave and start sending them back, the more radical will be the eventual solution. There is no reason that our nations cannot stop this using legal measures. After all, each country is entitled to its own sovereignty, is it not?
