This stuff is happening all over the world. If you want to adopt someone every time you see them crying, may as well take in 100 million. (Where did you get the photo and how do we know what it is depicting?)

We should definitely be sending food there.

In the meantime, ISIS has promised to infiltrate Syrian refugees with its own agents. That's what makes this group special and requires special screening.

At least we now know why Gulf states aren't working to alleviate a local crisis:

here is my math.. accepting a battalion of 25,000 mostly men..
reason: they going to save money to bring the wife and kids
okay liberal math is broken again.
- tims or mcds $12/hr per week $ 672 less the taxes = $372 x 4 =$ 1400
not including rent and utilities then it will be $ 400/month if you are lucky.
so that is $4800 in the year.. each ticket cost $1600 plus taxes so the man, will pick and choose which family member to save from being raped, butchered, beheaded.. so if he was a real man he would have sent his wife and kids first.

option 2
the man comes to Canada and sits on welfare saves up and then brings the whole family again would take years to save in both options..

Best plan of attack is Air Canada who apparently can find planes to fly 24/7 till they deliver 25000 of them to Canada within a month - but they can not find a seat for me when I miss my flight or they over book my flight or if a plane has a mechanical error, they can not seem to find a plane that works and I sleep in the airport.
Instead Air Canada should fly them to saudi arabia - room for 100 000 ready to go sitting empty fully furnished and function tents..
Canada has crumbling buildings that were abandoned, which will house them in Downtown Toronto or other cities. at a cost of $1.2 Billion... meanwhile Saudi Arabia prints money because of oil futures, has billions to prove its point of excess in the desert.

The best part in the end they will blame Canada that is so difficult to live here.
i guess i am the in the worng lol

Hark, Oh Great One. Did you summon the humble unwashed? A thousand pardons for my tardiness...

Funny, I'm nothing more than a dumb rightwingnut university dropout troglodyte biker & I found it.

Surely someone with your vast intelligence, incomparable education (PhD and Journalism training!) and general savoir faire should be able to do the same.

(read: Screw you, I ain't your beck & call boy. Gonna take a lot more than a catcall across the intertubes before I start justifying myself to you, especially given recent history. You want answers? A little humility would be a great start...)

The policy will officially be announced on Tuesday, but it's now clear:

Canada's Syrian refugee plan limited to women, children and families

Now... let's sit back and wait for the usual suspects to tell us how toddlers are really just ISIS killer sleeper agents, and then justify their opposition to allowing them into Canada....

Even when people might be ready to agree with such a policy, you're already running around like a loony, tilting at windmills, making enemies and making it hard for people to agree with you.

What is the matter with you?

Islamic State trains children to be suicide bombers - Telegraph

also they are teaching kids to stab Jews now.. very disgusting.. because once they are exposed to harm of brain washing - you can not unteach..

not to mention in Toronto, local mosque held an event to teach kids to kill infidels .. yet the liberal media said it was a one off...
VIDEO: Toronto Mosque teaches 4-5 year olds beheading » Daily headlines
of course the mosque was funded by Wynne and company as part of a private school.. nice - our tax dollars at work.

Oh for Pete's sake. Don't tell me FeXL is sharing his Safari bookmarks with you? Another Pamela Geller-sourced story. Yeah, that has a whooooole lot of authority.

The "liberal media" - I guess that's what the Right calls anyone who explains reality to people who just don't want to accept it.

Not providing the context is dishonest. Here's what Shalom Life, a Canadian Jewish website, said about this controversy:
...the play depicts the martyrdom of Muhammad’s grandson and brother.

“It’s a Shiite school, and it’s commemorating one of the great tragedies in Islamic history, which is the slaughter of the Prophet Muhammad’s family by the caliphate of the time,” says Fatah, who also notes that he himself watched these plays as a boy growing up in Pakistan.

* * *

Fatah notes that he does not believe that the parents, or teachers, at the Islamic Jaffari Centre are "trying to make the kids into radicals."

“After all, these are the victims of radicals,” he says. “Most Shiite Muslims today are being slaughtered by fellow Muslims. So that context has to be there. This was not some ISIS or al-Qaida or Taliban type of people.”

* * *

...news agencies that decided to publish this story have neglected to mention that these children aren't being taught to behead others in the school of British rapper turned ISIS member Jihadi John, but were merely reenacting a religious history lesson.

WND (America's Independent News Network) picked up the story, publishing it with the headline "Canada Mosque Teaches 4-Year-Old's to Behead.' TLV Faces, a fellow Jewish publication, reprinted the story with the exact same headline, but with the addition of the word, "SHOCKING."

Click bait? You bet. But will people reading this story find out that this two-year-old footage is not entirely something they should be afraid of, and has absolutely nothing to do with ISIS? Doubtful.

The comments on these articles are really what's disturbing, as this kind of reporting only stands to affirm and increase Islamophobia...
The school was *not* 'teaching kids to kill infidels'. The beheadings were an historical fact - the murders of of Muhammed's grandson and brother, not a jihadist campaign of terror against the evil devil white Westerners (who didn't exist at the time!).

Another manufactured controversy by the fearful bigots with very loud voices.

It seems to me that had the Liberals shared this fact right up front after being elected, it would have quelled the revolt of Canadians against the idea. Instead they appear to have stirred the opposition themselves.
