In 2008, the mantra of the political left was “if you do not vote for Barak Obama for President you are a racist”. I’d venture that many Americans didn’t want to be called racist so they voted for Barak Obama. Of course history has it that Mr. Obama was elected. America had proved, at least in a superficial fashion, that it wasn’t racist. It had elected a black President.
However it seems that Americans are still racist”. The man whom they’d elected is calling them racist. “In spite of the fact that you’d voted for me, if you don’t receive refugees from Syria you’re still racist” he declares.
Mr. Obama’s appeal to the guilt ridden “racist” left, as farfetched as this may sound, is, in my humble opinion, prelude to the greatest holocaust in human history and here’s why I say so.
First of all, allow me to examine the rationale behind the receiving of Syrian refugees: At face value it seems like the compassionate thing to do. “People who are destitute… whose lives are in danger, are being rescued.” That sounds good, altruistic and loving but it is the very antithesis.
a. It seems that the people who are willing to bring the refugees in are willing to risk the associated dangers which is fine, but they neglect the reality that they’re willing to risk the danger of fellow Americans in the process.
b. It seems that they also have a sense of justification for this risk because those who don’t want to risk this danger can be labeled as “cowards”, “Islamophobes”, and “racists”, and therefore, are deserving of the consequences of their “heartless,” fearful” and “hateful” attitudes. Thus, in reality, it is they who are passing judgment on others.
c. They risk the lives and safety of their own sons and daughters and replace that for the alleged well-being of others. Such a decision causes one to doubt whether they really love their own sons and daughters at all. This will become more evident as I continue.
Secondly, bringing Syrian refugees onto American soil is irrational. It does not solve the problem as to why there are Syrian refugees in the first place. Syrian refugees, like any other refugee, are refugees fleeing to the West and the United States in particular because in one way or another, life is better in the West and in the United States than it is in Syria. In a previous essay, I outlined four ways for solving a refugee problem.
a. The first was to not let anyone in, and build border fences so as to prevent people from coming in who’ve not been thoroughly vetted particularly through the naturalization process. This lacks desirability simply because it returns the refugees back to the allegedly horrid circumstances from which they’re fleeing.
b. The second remedy for this problem is the most desirable and gets to the heart of the reason for the refugee problem in the first place. I confess, however that there’s a major problem with the remedy that I propose. It’s not going to happen!
In essence, this remedy is built upon the rather obvious premise that the refugee problem exists because there’s some evil which makes life miserable for those refugees. We know that in the situation at hand, Syria is dominated by a dictator by the name of Bashar Al Asad. He’s trying to hold onto his power and has therefore, resorted to violence so as to repel anyone or any entity that would seek his overthrow. The resulting civil war has turned into a blood bath which is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands already. As evil as Mr. Asad is, it seems that his opposition is even more evil. ISIS is already known far and wide for its cruelty. So it seems that not too many parties within the boundaries of Syria are particularly nice people.
The most desirable remedy to our problem, however, is that Mr. Asad put down his arms, sing cumbaya with his enemies, all parties involved, including ISIS, shake hands with one another, make peace, set up mutually agreeable boundaries and have the refugees return to Syria which would then be called “Happy Land” (in Arabic of course). I think you see why this will not happen.
c. The third remedy would be to obliterate those belligerents who won’t make peace with one another in accordance with the above remedy, and b y so doing, get rid of those who are making life unbearable for the immigrants. Safe places can be established for the immigrants within their homeland, buttressed by international “Peace Keepers” while the belligerents are blown to smithereens. Once that’s accomplished the refugees can live in peace in the land of their birth (assuming that there aren’t clandestine belligerents already in the midst of the refugees).
d. The fourth remedy is to bring the refugees in and hold out the welcome mat. That, it seems, is the tact that the Obama Administration has taken. The refugees come in. They introduce the actualization of multiculturalism to the American and Western way of life and because of the resulting clash of incompatible cultures, a sort of homeostasis takes place in which life in the United States become as intolerable as life in Syria. Hence, refugees will no longer want to come in. That will most certainly end the influx of further immigration! In essence, terrorist instigated violence will erupt, and law enforcement and domestic related military intervention becomes necessary to diminish the violence which will, nevertheless become greater in frequency because of the inadequacy of law enforcement to cover all eventualities. The only possible outcomes will either be civil war temporarily delayed by peace keeping militia” or a police state with loss of liberties accompanied by occasional or perhaps even frequent acts of violence. It seems likely that the former will morph into the latter. This is destined to become the natural universal outcome everywhere on our planet which all of us allegedly call home. In essence, it will grow to be a less and less comfortable home in which to live with time except for those who reside at the top of the political spectrum.
Thirdly – How do I know that the fourth remedy will be as disastrous as I predict?
a. It is already documented that a vast plurality of Syrian refugees are men of combat age. Apparently they’d left the women and children behind to fight ISIS which, it seems, at least to me, is not exactly the manly thing to do. Besides, it’s already been shown that women have served as terrorists as well. Furthermore, there is absolutely no way that these “refugees” can be adequately vetted because there’s no way that customs officials are sufficiently trained (let alone psychiatrists) to read people’s minds.
b. The incidences in Europe, of refugee instigated terror attacks, including beheadings, mass murders rapes, especially of young, virgin girls as well as their enslavement, and other atrocities has risen exponentially since the influx of these refugees has begun.
c. Muslims do not have a history of assimilating into western culture. To a very high degree, Muslims have displayed a disdain for western law and particularly secularization.
d. And how can I assume that almost every refugee which has shown up on Western shores is a Muslim? It’s been documented that boats of refugees that have arrived on the north side of the Mediterranean had thrown Christians overboard prior to their arrival onto Western shores. No such behavior has been documented to have occurred at the hands of Christians.
e. In light of the reality that the vast majority (if not all) of this influx of refugees is Muslim, and in light of the reality that a large plurality of these refugees are men, it’s easy to presume that a many of these refugees do not have a benevolent attitudw towards their well meaning western hosts. Islam is a world view bent on world domination and the establishment of Sharia law all around the globe. It is naïve to think that Muslims think like western folk. They don’t. Islam offers no rights for women. Islam allows for polygamy, and the most radical/religious/orthodox among them provide loopholes in their interpretation of Sharia law which allow for homosexuality and bestiality. Women are covered up, not because it is an indication of piety and modesty, but because the men don’t have the self-control to reign in their lusts and passions. Hence, the incidences of rape in Europe are skyrocketing because the life-style of young Western women and girls does not require the sort of attire demanded by Sharia law. Furthermore the one doing the raping blames the victim for wearing her comparatively skimpy attire.
f. But this is not the only way that Muslims think differently than people in the West. The word “Islam” means “submission”. To the Muslim mind, Muslims are expendable. The only thing that counts is the expansion of Islam. Out of servitude, therefore, the truly devout Muslim will offer up his life for the cause. Why else is there this enormous prevalence of suicide bombings? Like ants that sacrifice themselves to make bridges by which armies of ants can cross a stream, Muslims are sacrificing themselves to cross the Mediterranean to get into Europe. Already many have died, but that’s OK as far as Islam is concerned. They’ve died as martyrs. Their deaths prick the conscience of the compassionate but misguided West. This tact is also useful in garnering anti-Israel sympathy. No life means anything to Islam and so Palestinians, whether willingly, or otherwise, are placed in harm’s way so that they’re either maimed or killed by an Israeli ordinate and by so doing serve as nice photo-ops for appearing on CNN or some tabloid, thus garnering sympathy for the cause.
g. Ultimately Jihad requires either the subjugation of non-Muslims or preferably their deaths. What ISIS does to the Christians and Yazids in Iraq and Syria it will surely do to the people of the West. Armies won’t stop them because they will be among the people of Europe and America. They will each have a face.
h. Islam in its fundamental, unbridled form, appeals to the most base of human instincts… sex, self-indulgence, power and sadism. The accompanying behaviors associated with these instincts are hidden in the West only because such behaviors would give Islam a bad name. In Islamic countries, however, these behaviors run rampant.
A book authored by William Golding in 1954, entitled “Lord of the Flies” depicts the gradual moral and behavioral decay of a group of boys stranded on a desert island who are unbridled by Law. They begin to indulge in cultic practices until finally they kill the most likeable among them. This book is really nothing more than a depiction of what is common in the gang community where gang members join as a result of deprivation particularly of paternal love and instruction. They have their own set of laws. Gangs are a microcosm of Islam… which may just as well be likened to a giant gang filled with initiation rites. Initiation into the gang requires some sort of evidence of loyalty. As gang members get initiated by killing some other gang member or robbing some old lady on the street, so, Muslims will be required to kill some Muslim of a different (wrong believing) sect, or some unbeliever as proof of his or her loyalty. Why else, do you see evidence in the news of ISIS killing other Muslims for not being “real” Muslims? Just like in the case with gangs, leaving the gang can mean death, so, in Islam, leaving Islam is literally punishable by death.
To him whom we would call the “radical Muslim”, Islam makes perfect sense. It appeals to the most basic of human instincts! It is assumed that man was made that way. This way of thinking will not be stopped with armies and, in light of the “end game” resulting from the homeostasis approach to the immigration problem mentioned above, the “bad guys” in Syria will win. They allegedly get rid of the people that they don’t want and foist those individuals on the people of the unsuspecting West. Evil wins because the West is confronted with lawlessness, anarchy and an unconfined “gang-like”/self-indulgent and sadistic mentality in its midst under the guise of “religion”.
So what is the true solution to the immigration problem? The only genuine solution to the immigration problem is the 2nd remedy mentioned above. But that remedy runs counter to human nature. Rather than giving in to the self-preservation and sadistic instincts found in Asad and ISIS and others, these instincts need to be replaced by selflessness, compassion, humility and benevolence…traits that run counter to human nature and yet embody nobility and strength of character. These are traits that are only to be found in their fullness and perfection in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, the Jewish Messiah.
Our politicians have done a great disservice to the one’s they allegedly serve. They attribute credibility to a world view that is thoroughly sadistic and destructive. Its only rationales for credibility are that it has the moniker of “religion”, it expands its domain not through reason but through violence, and a façade of religiosity covers the reality that it is unloving and lawless.
And what feeds into this “creeping Jihad” that would vote a politician into office who would open the flood gates for the entrance of this cancer into the midst of the West? Simply put, it’s moral relativism.
The people of the West have determined that it is better for a woman to be lascivious, and kill a baby because nurturing that baby is too big of a responsibility and denies her of her freedom.
The people of the West have determined that it is better for a man to “be free” rather than assume the responsibility of protecting and nurturing the woman he’s “screwed”, and the child he’d created.
The people of the West have determined that ”freedom” is synonymous with the term, “license”. Abandoning a spouse contrary to the vows of fidelity which one has taken is OK because it means “freedom”. Indulging in sexual behaviors contrary to the way in which one was designed by his Creator, which, by the way, do coincide with the laws of nature (as opposed to the laws of human nature) is not only acceptable but rewarded as “brave”.
The people of the West have determined that cheating (whether it is in sports, tests in school, finances or any other field) is OK because they’ve determined that success, wealth and reputation are more important than honesty, transparency, humility and a clear conscience before a God whom they prefer not to exist because their lifestyle could not endure His scrutiny.
The moral relativism of the Western mind can no longer discern between good and evil. It can only see the “color of one’s skin”. It does not see the “content of one’s character”.
The American people have replaced the morally pure, righteous and, dare I say holy, Jesus, with the morally relativistic self-indulgent and arrogant Barak Obama who is in the process of opening the floodgates of the West to people who own a world view that is fundamentally cruel and sadistic.
The liberal of the West attempts to assuage his guilt of self-indulgence and lawlessness by offering asylum to those whom he assumes to be in need. But he lets the bad guys win and ultimately offers asylum to those who will execute his own demise.
And so I hold that this immigration policy promulgated by Barak Husein Obama, if enacted, will bring the world to the edge of the greatest bloodbath it has ever known.
