U.S. Prepares for Unknown Thousands of Syrian Refugees

Between 1,500 and 2,000 Syrian refugees have been brought to the United States this year. Barack Obama has announced that he will take in 10,000 as early as next month, that is up from 5,000. The problem is that we have no way of vetting them, almost all are Muslims and 75% are men of fighting age.

This is at a time when a global jihad is taking place and jihadists of all stripes have promised to consume the West.

At a briefing at the White House on Thursday, press secretary, Josh Earnest, said the United States would “accept at least 10,000 refugees in the next fiscal year,” which begins Oct. 1.

Earlier, Secretary of State John Kerry, said at a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill that that the total number of refugees taken in by the United States could rise to more than 100,000, from the current figure of 70,000. State Department officials said that not all of the additional 30,000 would be Syrians, but many would be.

Josh Earnest said that 100,000 figure cited by Kerry is a misunderstanding because the screening takes 18 to 24 months. The FBI Director Jim Comey said there is no way to vet them.

According to the New York Times, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has already referred 18,000 cases to the United States for resettlement. Many are torture survivors, people with special medical needs, and women who head households, more than half are children. They will all require government assistance.

In the last five years, we have taken in 115,000 refugees from more than 70 countries, mostly in the Middle East and Africa and an overwhelming number have been Muslim.

Not every refugee is fleeing terror. Some are terrorists and we can’t determine who they are. They don’t have records and they come on the honor system.

In the past 40 years, the United States accepted more than 70% of the refugees who sought asylum, that’s 70% of all the world’s nations. More than 90% live off some kind of government subsistence and 100% are offered full benefits.

The largest outbreak in history continues unabated in West Africa. Three Americans have been infected, one of whom was the man who died upon his arrival in Nigerian megacity Lagos last week. Now, Emory University hospital in Atlanta will be taking the transfer of an Ebola patient, reportedly an American aid worker:

Terrorist Group ISIS May Be Coming To America

War On Terror: As what the feds call “other than Mexicans” and MS-13 gang members stream across our border, just what is keeping the head of ISIS from keeping his promise, “I’ll see you in New York”?

We already know how ruthless the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is, so much so that media pundits such as Kirsten Powers, who should know better, insist that even al-Qaida is said to be distancing itself from the group.

You know: the same al-Qaida that slit throats with box cutters and then turned passenger jets filled with fuel into cruise missiles aimed at the World Trade Center.

 

ISIS is as determined as it is ruthless and has plans that go beyond the mini-caliphate it has established in Iraq and Syria — the caliphate for which President Obama, through his politically motivated troop withdrawal, served as midwife.

This caliphate, as the staging ground for future attacks on infidels worldwide, was also the dream of the precursor of ISIS, al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI), and its leader, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a dream shared by al-Qaida itself.

ISIS is working on the game plan outlined by al-Qaida’s No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in an October 2005 letter to the late al-Zarqawi. Zawahiri wrote:

“The first stage: Expel the Americans from Iraq. The second stage: Establish an Islamic Authority … over as much territory as you can spread its power in Iraq … in order to fill the void stemming from the departure of he Americans. The third stage: Extend the jihad wave to the secular countries neighboring Iraq.”

And from there, the world, restoring an Islamic empire that once extended to the gates of Vienna.

Except al-Qaida in Iraq wasn’t able to and didn’t have to expel the Americans from Iraq. President Obama did it for them. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, released on Obama’s watch from Camp Bucca in Iraq in 2009, will take it from there.

As Michael Daly pointed out last week in the Daily Beast, al-Baghdadi, aware that those guarding him were reservists from Long Island, had a few choice parting words.

“He said, ‘I’ll see you guys in New York,'” recalls Army Col. Kenneth King, then the commanding officer of Camp Bucca. “We spent how many missions and how many soldiers were put at risk when we caught this guy and we just released him,” Daly quotes King as saying.

Sounds like the trade with the Taliban that President Obama made.

The threat by al-Baghdadi was not taken seriously at the time, but it should be. While we watch the appalling administration-aided child abuse in the form of unaccompanied minors flooding across our border, they are not the only ones invited by President Obama’s open border policies.

A congressional report released in 2006 noted that of 1.2 million illegal aliens apprehended the prior year, 165,000 came from countries other than Mexico, including from terrorist havens Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Libya,Yemen, Iran and Syria.

This problem has only gotten worse, and among those coming across have been members of MS-13, one of the world’s most violent and dangerous gangs, which will do anything if paid enough.

ISIS has a lot of money now, looted from Iraqi banks. It’s also worth noting that Spanish authorities recently apprehended eight people who were part of a jihadist recruiting network led by former Gitmo detainee Lahcen Ikasrrien, who was arrested in Afghanistan in 2001.

As Al-Arabiya reported, “The cell found and dispatched recruits for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants based in Syria and Iraq, Spain’s interior ministry said in a statement.”

If the reach of ISIS can extend into Europe, it can extend into Central and South America. A recruiting drive there by ISIS could potentially usher the Islamist threat of “Death to America” into every American city and town.

ISIS-recruited terrorists hidden in the flood across our borders would turn al-Baghdadi’s ‘see you in New York’ from an idle boast into a grim prophecy.
