“That’s PC trumping Western democratic values for sure.” Yep.
Last February, the Islamic State boasted it would soon flood Europe with as many as 500,000 refugees. And the Lebanese Education Minister recently said that there were 20,000 jihadis among the refugees in camps in his country. Meanwhile, 80% of migrants who have recently come to Europe claiming to be fleeing the war in Syria aren’t really from Syria at all.
So why are they claiming to be Syrian and streaming into Europe? An Islamic State operative gave the answer when he boasted in September, shortly after the migrant influx began, that among the flood of refugees, 4,000 Islamic State jihadis had already entered Europe. He explained their purpose: “It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah.” These Muslims were going to Europe in the service of that caliphate: “They are going like refugees,” he said, but they were going with the plan of sowing blood and mayhem on European streets. As he told this to journalists, he smiled and said, “Just wait.”
“Political correctness may kill us — literally,” by Lorne Gunter, Postmedia Network, December 26, 2015:
In the war on terrorism, we in the West may be our own worst enemies.
The political correctness of many of our leaders and opinion-makers could bury us.
Al-Qaida, ISIS, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and many other terror organizations want the death of as many of us as possible or our forcible conversion to their particularly brutal strain of Islam.
They dream of a worldwide caliphate in which all free people are subjugated to a Salafist dictatorship under sharia law….
But so long as those in charge are more concerned about offending Muslims than they are about defending against terrorism, Western nations will be more vulnerable than they should be.
In Canada two weeks ago, at just about the same time Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was beamingly greeting the first planeload of Syrian refugees to Canada, customs officials in Toronto were giving the third degree to American author, Robert Spencer.
Spencer, who operates a website called jihadwatch.org., is a harsh critic of radical Islam.
He has written 14 books on terrorism and radicalization, including two New York Times bestsellers.
But when he tried to come to Canada for a speaking engagement organized by the Jewish Defence League, Spencer was grilled for three hours at Pearson International airport and his luggage searched for hate literature.
Noted author held up for his views while refugees (whose views we don’t know) are welcomed like heroes.
That’s PC trumping Western democratic values for sure.
