Syrian Refugees = English Pilgrims, Says Obama

At least he had something positive to say about Christian pilgrims.

“Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims — men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves and their families,” Barack Obama told us over the Thanksgiving holiday. “What makes America America is that we offer that chance.” He was, of course, making the argument that we should open the doors to Syrian refugees, some of whom we’ve warned may be radical Islamists bent on our destruction. Such a Trojan horse isn’t wise. But on the bright side, Obama had something positive to say about Christian pilgrims…

Meanwhile, in completely unrelated news (we’re sure), a survey last year of both Arabs and a subset of Syrian refugees found that the vast majority had a “negative view” of the Islamic State. It’s understandable that true refugees would have a rather dour opinion of the jihadis forcing them from their homes. But the disturbing reality is the flip side — 13% of Syrian refugees had a positive opinion of the Islamic State. Given that Obama completely underestimated the growth of the Islamic State and has based his policy on either political expediency or cooked intelligence, do we really trust his administration to vet refugees and weed out Islamic State sympathizers? While 13% is minuscule when you’re counting votes, it’s an enormous threat when considering potential terrorists being allowed into the country.
