"WE DO NOT DISCRIMINATE ON THE GROUNDS OF RELIGION.
It's just that we only want Muslims."
Both the British and the New Zealand governments are strident - strident I tell you - in stating that religious litmus tests play no part whatsoever in their decisions regarding which refugees will be accepted into their countries. Then by their actions they display that religion has everything to do with admissions when they take in almost no Syrian Christian refugees.
In the case of Britain in 2017 Christians (10% of Syria's population) amounted to 0.02% of Syrian refugees and in 2018 New Zealand received exactly none.
I have contacted the NZ Government in the past about this horror story and was calmly informed that the Government only takes in those vetted and processed by the United Nations. So relax! The UN is in charge. What could possibly go wrong?
Well there are a couple of things:
- the Christians are the most endangered minority in Syria but despite this it is the Sunnis the UN take in. These are include those with Jihadist sympathies (if not jihadis themselves);
- Syria is a failed state and fraudulent papers and passports are manufactured en masse for those wishing to become "refugees" (a surprising number of "refugees" share the same birth date of 1st January, the same passport photo & the same names);
- Christians cannot even stay in the UN Migrant Camps because of the physical danger they face from the Sunni "refugees" - the same ones the UN assures us have been carefully vetted and will fit into our societies no problem. Because the Christians can't stay in the Camps they can't be processed and they can't escape - but the Sunnis who threaten and attack them? Hey they're good to go. Come on in guys, you've been "vetted"!
When in my correspondence with NZ government officials I have pointed out those particular facts of course I stopped receiving responses. Well they must get busy writing deflective emails all day mustn't they?
Coincidentally - I mean it can only be pure coincidence right? - the Barnabas Fund reports that 15 churches in the UK have received hand written messages in the last two months stating similar things:~ “Stop all your services straight away”, said one letter sent to a church in Sheffield, South Yorkshire “if you don’t your church will be petrol bombed while in service. Continue behind closed doors and your congregation members will be stabbed one by one. Blood on your hands. You have been warned.”
Did you get the point that any deaths among the Christians will be the fault of the Christians? We hear this sort of thing a lot from so many followers of the Religion of Peace™ all over the world and of course the UK has done its level best to bring in as many Muslims as it can to show how open-minded & accepting it is. These 2 facts couldn't possibly be related could they? The threats simply couldn't be from ardent followers of the prophet eh?
Here is the article from the Barnabas Fund on the NZ & UK governments' failure to launch regarding the refugee debacle:~
New Zealand fails to offer sanctuary to any Christian refugees from Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq
Government figures released to Barnabas Fund show that no Christians from Syria, Afghanistan or Iraq were granted the right to resettle in New Zealand last year.
In the 12 months up to 31 October 2018, the country gave sanctuary to 1,019 refugees. Of these 277 were from Syria, 105 from Afghanistan and seven from Iraq – and all were Muslims.
Figures for previous years, obtained by Barnabas Fund under the Official Information Act, are equally bleak. In 2016, only six Christians were among the 377 Syrians granted sanctuary, and in the five weeks up to 10 February 2017 no Christians were among the 45 Syrians, all Muslims, who were allowed to settle. Christians made up 10% of the population of Syria before the war.
A spokesman for Jacinda Ardern’s Labour government said refugees were considered for resettlement in New Zealand on the basis of “their protection needs and not religious affiliation”.
The UK government is also facing “embarrassment” over the tiny minority of Christian Syrians offered sanctuary in Britain.
Figures obtained by Barnabas Fund under a Freedom of Information request show that out of 4,850 Syrian refugees accepted for resettlement by the Home Office in 2017, only eleven were Christian, representing just 0.2% of all Syrian refugees accepted by the UK.
An article in UK’s Sunday Times on 20 January said that the finding “appears to discriminate in favour of Muslims” and “risks embarrassing the government” at a time when the Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has ordered a government review into the UK’s response to the global persecution of Christians.
How long will our governments continue to turn a blind eye to reality? Will we keep bringing in Sunnis while denying sanctuary to Christians? Just how do we think that might turn out? Is anybody in our government doing any thinking at all?
Or are we just going to keep wishing really, really hard that exposure to the waters of New Zealand will be far more efficacious than exposure to the miraculous waters of Lourdes? It doesn't take a genius to see that importing these problems is not a smart move. But we are talking about the government here.
