They do have a track record of being the sanest in that area. Pretty much kept to themselves, relatively. They look like Jesus compared to our foreign policy...just sayin'.
From what I understand, it appears that the Iran sect are a whole lot less violent. Those Saudi's suck. From what I've read, ISIS fighters are flowing into Syria from very stable regimes w/ nuclear weapons, from our NATO member, Turkey.

Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

IMO, no muslims should be allowed access to our country until serious back ground checks have been performed and their agreement that assimilation into our culture is a requirement.
It's really confounding that a lot of Americans still think that they created this mess...when in fact our corrupt gov't has. Our own fed gov't has funded the extremists (ISIS, Al Nursa) that has created all this mess. It's been proven....yet the MSM has informed the naive that Syria, Russia, Iran, and the like are too blame. Nothing could be further from the truth. But, the mouth breathers refuse to look beyond MSM propaganda and continue to support the very ones that are oppressing them.
Until this naive populace faces the truth, nothing will ever change, IMO.

Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

Europe is a war-zone. Its open-door refugee policy has enabled over a million migrants to enter the continent last year, many from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Europe is amassing the consequences of this disastrous program, as trepidation and pillage intensify in direct result of their refugee populations. On our side President Obama aspires to bring in 10,000 additional refugees next year, and a Hillary Clinton presidency would guarantee 65,000 more right out of the gate.

ISIS already loftily announced its infiltration of refugee populations, so your town could be next on the list to harbor an influx of jihadists-in-training. If we continue in the footsteps of European leadership, our country will surely be second in line to becoming the next hot-spot for terror operations.

The process of resettling refugees is a strategic one, sneakily coordinated between the UN and the State Department. Essentially, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees chooses most of the incomers, and it is under the influence of a powerful Muslim group called the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. This means that U.S.-bound refugees are coming from countries with large numbers of people who hate us, such as Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria.

Once the refugees are selected, the State Department distributes them to nine major federal contractors: Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and the World Relief Corporation. Six of these contractors are religious charities, and often play on emotion to guilt their pious volunteers into advancing their agenda. They also receive compensation for each entrant they resettle, an incentive to further romanticize resettlement programs and aggrandize “compassionate refugees” to the degree of exaltation.

Once the refugees are brought in, they are dispersed to 190 cities and towns at the jurisdiction of 350 sub-contractors. After six months, these sub-contractors submit paperwork to import the relatives of the original refugee and the whole cycle repeats itself. This program has cost the U.S. Treasury upwards of one billion dollars, not including the welfare, healthcare, and other benefits that are provided to the immigrants upon arrival. To this day, over 100,000 Somalis and 100,000 Iraqis have been resettled, with 10,000 more in the pipeline, and taxpayers like you are footing the bill.

Ushering in thousands of migrants each year has begun to take its toll on American cities. Infiltrating these communities with hordes of third-world aliens has presented a multitude of threats that extend far beyond terrorism itself. Since a lot of migrant resettlement flies under the radar, many towns are ill prepared to assimilate the surprise guests. School systems don’t have the staff to accommodate non-English speaking students, and subsidized housing languishes beneath the weight of increasing demand.

Numbers also reflect that refugee children receive more welfare benefits than poverty-stricken American children. Not to mention, unemployment rates skyrocket, thus resulting in crippled economies and surging crime rates.

These crime rates do not exclude the climbing rape and harassment offenses, especially among female victims. Multiple occurrences in several states have been recorded: Massachusetts, Idaho, Virginia, Utah, California, North Dakota and Minnesota. All have one common theme: the perpetrators were of refugee status.

This is the pattern of disrespect Muslim immigrants display towards our women, children, and Western values.

Refugee cities have also become hubs for foreign illnesses that were once well controlled. Local health departments are experiencing an increase in communicable diseases and disorders from these populations. Cases of highly infectious bacterial diseases like active Tuberculosis have been mushrooming all across the states as recorded:

Colorado: 16 cases, Ohio: 11 cases, Vermont: 35 cases, Wisconsin: 117 cases, Florida: 11 cases, Idaho: 7 cases, Indiana: 4 cases, Kentucky: 9 cases, and North Dakota: 4 cases.

Remember, these cases will swell beyond a few isolated incidents. 22 percent of resettled refugees in the state of Minnesota alone test positive for latent Tuberculosis. It is clear this contagion is festering and uncontained.

Toxic refugee programs are more than a mere side effect, they are the virus itself. The government has concocted a lethal epidemic, and we are enabling its injection directly into America’s bloodstream.

This administration is trying to detract from the unpleasant realities of mass Muslim immigration, and the president and his cronies seem delighted to distort the facts and further propagate their embarrassing slander. It is by far the most sinister cover-up of our time. Thankfully, as a democracy, we are able to exercise our right to determine America’s fate.

ACT for America's, the nation's largest national security organization has launched the "Refugee Resettlement Working Group”, where concerned citizens can join and help protect our nation by addressing a dangerously broken U.S. refugee program. Pockets of refugees are being haphazardly tossed into our communities without adequate screening or assimilation efforts. We will reform this process, and dedicate ourselves to resolve these issues in our local communities. It all starts with you. Join us.

For Freedom,

ACT for America

Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

He had a mental illness all right - it's called being muslim. You bet they found proof that this was a 9-11 replay in his mind - he just didn't have the skills to pull it off. The RCMP are covering up the truth of what they found in the cockpit. And the dad - isn't he just a piece of work? "It's all the government's fault because they did not have a guard there to stop my son." Right.

WHEN TEDDY ROOSEVELT BANNED MUSLIMS FROM AMERICA

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2638...iel-greenfield

Immigration Act of 1907, looks pretty good.

The original Naturalization Acts were better.

Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

An old study from 2007. The corrupt leaders care not because they have an agenda. The globalists have an agenda. They are carrying it out, facts be damned.

The downside of diversity
A Harvard political scientist finds that diversity hurts civic life. What happens when a liberal scholar unearths an inconvenient truth?


Quote:
IT HAS BECOME increasingly popular to speak of racial and ethnic diversity as a civic strength. From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger.

But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam -- famous for "Bowling Alone," his 2000 book on declining civic engagement -- has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.

"The extent of the effect is shocking," says Scott Page, a University of Michigan political scientist.

The study comes at a time when the future of the American melting pot is the focus of intense political debate, from immigration to race-based admissions to schools, and it poses challenges to advocates on all sides of the issues. The study is already being cited by some conservatives as proof of the harm large-scale immigration causes to the nation's social fabric. But with demographic trends already pushing the nation inexorably toward greater diversity, the real question may yet lie ahead: how to handle the unsettling social changes that Putnam's research predicts.

"We can't ignore the findings," says Ali Noorani, executive director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition. "The big question we have to ask ourselves is, what do we do about it; what are the next steps?"

The study is part of a fascinating new portrait of diversity emerging from recent scholarship. Diversity, it shows, makes us uncomfortable -- but discomfort, it turns out, isn't always a bad thing. Unease with differences helps explain why teams of engineers from different cultures may be ideally suited to solve a vexing problem. Culture clashes can produce a dynamic give-and-take, generating a solution that may have eluded a group of people with more similar backgrounds and approaches. At the same time, though, Putnam's work adds to a growing body of research indicating that more diverse populations seem to extend themselves less on behalf of collective needs and goals.

His findings on the downsides of diversity have also posed a challenge for Putnam, a liberal academic whose own values put him squarely in the pro-diversity camp. Suddenly finding himself the bearer of bad news, Putnam has struggled with how to present his work. He gathered the initial raw data in 2000 and issued a press release the following year outlining the results. He then spent several years testing other possible explanations.

When he finally published a detailed scholarly analysis in June in the journal Scandinavian Political Studies, he faced criticism for straying from data into advocacy. His paper argues strongly that the negative effects of diversity can be remedied, and says history suggests that ethnic diversity may eventually fade as a sharp line of social demarcation.

"Having aligned himself with the central planners intent on sustaining such social engineering, Putnam concludes the facts with a stern pep talk," wrote conservative commentator Ilana Mercer, in a recent Orange County Register op-ed titled "Greater diversity equals more misery."

Putnam has long staked out ground as both a researcher and a civic player, someone willing to describe social problems and then have a hand in addressing them. He says social science should be "simultaneously rigorous and relevant," meeting high research standards while also "speaking to concerns of our fellow citizens." But on a topic as charged as ethnicity and race, Putnam worries that many people hear only what they want to.

"It would be unfortunate if a politically correct progressivism were to deny the reality of the challenge to social solidarity posed by diversity," he writes in the new report. "It would be equally unfortunate if an ahistorical and ethnocentric conservatism were to deny that addressing that challenge is both feasible and desirable."...

That was an excellent article, and one we knew in our gut and by our experience to be true. Cultures and societies cohere together precisely to the degree they share things in common. Common values, attitudes, morals, principles, and religion are the glue that holds a society together, and causes people to value one another and care for one another.

But diversity in those things cause people to distrust one another and to enter into conflict with each other, because they have a different vision and goal of what a society should look like.

Thus the whole clash of civilizations that we see today. Islamic sharia law will never be compatible with Christian constitutional law, and it is impossible to homogenize them together. People are at each other's throats (for the Muslims, literally at our throats) when you try to mix them.

Let the muslims have their countries, the humanists have their countries, the Christian their countries, and the hindus their countries - but do not try to mix or homogenize them. Only disaster can occur when you do.

This is why all muslim immigration needs to stop, and any here as refugees need to be deported to muslim countries.

We do not want more cultural transformation. We have had way to much of it already.

Good luck CA & Michigan.

Obama Admits 10,000 Syrian Refugees: This Is Where They Are Headed

Quote:
...Hillary Clinton has called for a 550 percent expansion to the importation of Syrian refugees. Based on the minimum figures she has put forth thus far, a President Hillary Clinton could potentially import a population of refugees (620,000) that nearly equals the population of Detroit (677,116).

Here a quick note: in the US, 91.4% of recent refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps, and 68.3% are on cash welfare, according to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Department of Health and Human Services.

This may be something else for the American public to consider in the 69 days remaining ahead of the presidential election.

Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

I think any religion should be banned from the USA and then build a wall having Joel Olsteen pay for it to keep them from coming back. If you ban one you have to ban them all otherwise the equality we like to talk so much about is meaningless.

I'm no fan of islam...but all religions except buddhism (which I don't consider a relgion...more of a lifestyle/viewonlife) are all evil and counterproductive.

WOW, I'm an atheist and don't agree with that statement.
Faith can be a very positive and good experience for a lot of people. To say all religion is evil and counterproductive is a pretty ignorant and closed minded point of view.
