You are wasting your breath - i tried. unfortunately those who have lived through it or know who have, will never be able to convince those who haven't. At this point we need to have a we told you so moment which will be too late..

Saudi Arabia has a despicable government. But there are issues surrounding Saudi Arabia's resistance to admit refugees into its territory. The religious politics are -naturally- the problem. But it's not totally cut-and-dried:
Supporters of Gulf governments contend that such criticism is unwarranted. The Gulf states have donated tens of millions of dollars to help Syrian refugees in places like Jordan. Saudi Arabia claims it has admitted half a million Syrians since 2011. Syrians are welcome to come, the argument goes, even if they are not legally registered as refugees.

Rights groups are not convinced. Visa restrictions make it difficult for Syrians to enter Gulf countries in practice, and even harder to stay. “These countries are not making clear, logistically and technically, to these people that your destination could be the Gulf,” says Qadi. “They have to make it clear. They have to announce it.”

The logic behind Gulf refugee policies is complex. In smaller Gulf states like Qatar and the UAE, foreigners already far outnumber nationals, a demographic balance that, for some, feeds feelings of anxiety tinged with xenophobia. In the UAE, foreign nationals outnumber citizens by more than five to one.

I made this map to give people perspective on the Syrian refugees.

The purple country is Turkey, they took in over 2,000,000 Syrian refugees and spent as estimated 4.5 billion USD, the green country is Jordan, They took in an estimated 1,400,000 Syrian refugees. Last but not least, That tiny red dot, that's Lebanon; Lebanon is the smallest country in continental Asia. Lebanon took in over 1,100,000 Syrian refugees.

People want to ban Syrian refugees from Canada, saying 10,500,000 dollars is too much and 25,000 people is too much. We have a population of 35,160,000 people, in 2014-2015 we had a surplus of 1,900,000,000 dollars. Our government has yearly expenditures in the 270,000,000,000 range. Keep telling yourself we can't help.

People are letting fear of ISIS try to stop us from helping people. In this world you can never be 100% safe, but the moment we stop looking after each other is the moment we give up on humanity. Let's continue to be a diverse country that accepts and helps people.

Well, well, well...

Who are the racists & bigots now? The despicable left, of course...

"If takes a little bit longer to do it right, than take the extra time," Immigration Minister @JohnMcCallumLPC says

Loving the comments.

In addition, some personal vindication. This is exactly what I've been saying since day one of this Charlie Foxtrot.

HA!!! I told you so!!!

Premier Wynne, Did You Just Call Me A Racist And A Xenophobe?

Sixty seven percent Canadians who disagree with the government's artificial timeline got labelled racist - in one fell swoop. And worse, in the same breath you talked about the presence in Canada of the twin "devils of...Racism and xenophobia". In that instant I became a racist and a xenophobe!
Why does it always take gov't, at any level, forever to catch up to what is going on in the real world?

you make a good point, to validate our claim in the north - we should have the refugees in the arctic or NWT - the diamond industries could use the labour. The arctic to prove we Canadians own that land.

Syrian refugee cooks for German homeless to 'give something back' - Trending - CBC News

Is this paying it back .......... or paying it forward? Either way, it is a fine story.

Islam, rape, and the fate of Western women

Quote:
Muslim men rape non-Muslim women (and girls) in disproportionately high numbers in countries with growing Muslim minority populations. Rape of infidel women is part of Islamic law and Islamic tradition. As such, it’s been going on for centuries.

This article is about the current threat Muslim rapists pose to non-Muslim women. In order to keep this article to a reasonable length, the focus is on the rape epidemic in Europe, but suffice it to say rape jihad is a gruesome reality the world over.
Further:

Quote:
In Denmark, more than half of convicted rapists are Muslims. In Norway, there has been a dramatic spike in rapes. In Oslo, 10% of females over the age of 15 have been raped by Muslim men with Muslim men guilty of 100% of the rapes against Norwegian women. Rape in Oslo is now so common that hotels hand out key chain alarms when people check in and increasingly Norwegian women only go out in groups. As is the case throughout the West, anyone who speaks the truth about this is labeled a “racist.”
M'bold.

I don't think I need to add anything more...
