Where are the Christians?

Federal appeals judge wants to know why 10 percent of the Syrian population is Christian and “yet less than one-half of 1 percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States this year are Christian”

The following comes from an October 27 Daily Signal article by Hans von Spakovsky:
In an otherwise unremarkable opinion over the federal Freedom of Information Act, a federal appellate court judge has issued a sharp rejoinder to the Obama administration over an issue that has been discussed in the news—the almost complete lack of Syrian Christian refugees being brought over to the U.S.

The Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center, a progressive liberal advocacy organization “dedicated to ensuring human rights protections” for immigrants and asylum seekers—including apparently terrorists—filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security.

In a spirited concurrence written by Judge Daniel Manion, the judge expressed his “concern about the apparent lack of Syrian Christians as a part of immigrants from that country.”

According to Manion, it is “well-documented” that the refugees are not representative of that “war-torn area of the world.” Ten percent of the Syrian population is Christian and “yet less than one-half of 1 percent of Syrian refugees admitted to the United States this year are Christian.”

President Barack Obama set a goal of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees in the U.S., and by August that goal had already been exceeded. But of the “nearly 11,000 refugees admitted by mid-September, only 56 were Christian.”

Yet Christian Syrians have been one of the primary targets of the Islamic jihadists infesting Syria and butchering, murdering, and killing civilians. The Islamic State has made it clear that it is going after Christians because it intends to “conquer Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women.” Thus, one would expect that Christian Syrians would represent a significant portion of the Syrians being accepted into the U.S. as refugees.

But that hasn’t been the case, and, according to Manion, the Obama administration has no “good explanation for this perplexing discrepancy.”

  1. “But of the “nearly 11,000 refugees admitted by mid-September, only 56 were Christian.”

    Follow, the money trail, AND THEN you will see why it took a Federal appeals judge to ask this important question…. “Where are the Christians?”

    Excellent Manion article!
    Of course, the elite would have to do some kind of un-PC “extreme vetting” to get Christians out of the harm’s way of the regime change chaos Hillary created. (Side note: The al Qaida “moderates” being armed by Obama/Clinton plan were supposed to overthrow Gaddafi and provide a gunrunning route to Syrian “moderates” to help overthrow Hassad. Didn’t someone think of telling the “moderates” not to kill Ambassador Stevens? Extremely careless!; as Comey might say.)

  3. The Watchman says:

    The reason there are very few Christian refugees is because the new world order global elites want to destroy Christianity. Isis and all the other terrorist groups in the Middle East and throughout Africa are destroying the Christian populations throughout those countries and regions. Christians are the most persecuted religious group throughout the entire Planet. Shame on Western Governments for not helping the Christian and Catholic populations of the world. This is a sure sign that we are in the end time. Jesus Christ King of Kings Lord of Lords True God and True Man is coming soon like a thief in the night. Be bold brothers and sisters in Christ and proclaim the Holy Gospel and word of almighty God!

    • Thank you, Watchman!

      Taken from A Moment with Mary

      She has always saved us!

      Marshal Foch, a general in the French army, was born in Tarbes, near Lourdes, in 1851. As a child, he met Bernadette Soubirous and even played with her once. At 20, he consecrated himself to the Virgin Mary. In 1914, when the Great War broke out, Foch called upon Our Lady daily and before every battle. Indeed, he strongly believed in the power of prayer. continued…….

      • continued…

        In the last weeks of the war, he attended daily Mass and recited the Rosary before going to work. “I owe my faith in Mary to my mother. I have prayed my Rosary every day of my life.” – “Even in days of hard fighting?” – “All the more so on those days! Many times I felt I was going to be defeated. So I clung to her like a 2-year-old child clings to his mother. I asked for her inspiration. She has always saved us.” Foch always attributed his victories to the Immaculate. He credited his good heavenly Mother for all the glory and honors he received after the final victory.

    Yes Catherine as we are told at Fatima, In the end her Immaculate Heart will triumph. If you ask the devil who he is most afraid , he will reply it is the Virgin Mary. The reason for this is because she was a human being and he is very embarrassed that he is defeated by a mere human. But we all know that she is not just a mere human but the Immaculate Conception and the Mother of God. Brothers and sisters in Christ turn to Mother Mary and her beautiful Rosary in these end times which are quickly coming to an end. America pray the rosary every single day for the protection of your country and your families. Pray America Pray!

  5. The democratic (communist party) in our nation are bringing the muslims in for multiple objectives, one being to register them as democrats where their numbers soar to in a generation or two, the democrats will have a super-majority in all the Federal and State Government (Executive, Legistlature, and Judicial Branches, basically leaving us essentially with a one-party (Democrat) system. We’ve seen how Obama wants us to look more like Europe by pushing for socialism. Communism is a one-party socialist government.
