Justin Trudeau promised to bring 25,000 Syrian refugees into Canada in the recent Federal Election. Flush with electoral victory, Trudeau seems eager to carry out that promise and to do it before Christmas. There have been stories in the news suggesting that proper vetting will be impossible because of the haste. (How much vetting can be done at all when people are coming from a place of complete anarchy is another question. I doubt anything but the most rudimentary screening is possible.)
One of the Prime Minister’s principal responsibilities is for the safety and security of Canada. While it is nice to help out refugees when we can – and we should do so when it doesn’t imperil us, the Paris Massacre graphically illustrates the dangers involved in bringing in more of this bunch. Even prior to the horrible events of Friday evening, it was already obvious to anybody paying attention that the Syrian mob - called refugees by the press - are surly, criminally violent, ungrateful, and thoroughly hostile to Western values. They have openly mocked those providing them relief, chanting ‘Allah u akbar’, implying – and often directly stating – that Islam will conquer Europe. Somehow, I think these people will not be amenable to assimilation, even if our multicultural elites were even contemplating such a course of action.
There is one reasonable path Trudeau could follow now but won’t. He could bring in 25,000 refugees from ISIS held territory in Syria AND Iraq. If he brings in Yazidis, Assyrian Christians, and even Shia Muslims, who are considered apostates by ISIS, there is far less chance that the radical Sunnis of ISIS will slip through the net. I suspect that fear of being referred to as an Islamaphobe will prevent Trudeau from giving preference to people who are now among the most persecuted in the world. Christian males under ISIS domination are being crucified, beheaded, and burned alive. Christian women are raped, forced to convert to Islam, and are sold into slavery. We don’t need Amnesty International to inform us of these atrocities, because ISIS proudly posts videos of the barbarity. They even posted videos of their slave auctions.
With all of this occurring right before our eyes, importing 25,000 Syrian refugees so quickly into Canada when we have absolutely no reason to do so is what is called an unforced error. If Justin Trudeau intends to keep this promise in spite of the Paris Massacre, he is demonstrating his naiveté and unfitness for higher office. He would be showing everybody that he just isn’t living in the real world. The world is not the make-believe Barney-the-Dinosaur universe that he would like it to be. It just is what it is.
In spite of his good wishes, if just one of these Syrian ‘refugees’ commits a terrorist act in Canada, Trudeau will own it. All of it.
