Refugees

Muslim Refugee

A female German police officer was viciously attacked by a Muslim refugee–after he freaked out at a train station.

Her attacker was a 23-year-old Moroccan man, described as an “asylum-seeker.” After conductors on the train platform in Osnabruck, Germany, tried to check his ticket, he apparently started acting strangely.

They quickly called for police to help–which is when the man flew into a rage and the situation escalated into violence.

The refugee first attacked the female officer, kicking and biting her while screaming, “Allah hu Akbar,” the jihadist call-to-action, and pledging allegiance to ISIS. He also tried to grab one of the police officers’ service pistol.

It ultimately took three police officers to subdue the attacker. His attacks left the female cop with a “massive” knee injury and another officer with a broken rib and bites on his arm.

It’s unclear what exactly made the man fly off the handle. Some sources suggest that the man, who didn’t speak German, didn’t understand his ticket was being checked–and feared he was being deported. But police have rejected that explanation, saying it would’ve been impossible for the refugee not to understand what was going on.

Despite his comments, a search of his apartment showed that he’s not affiliated with ISIS, and was not trying to commit an act of terror when he was arrested.

In a strange reversal, according to Breitbart, the attacker is now considering a legal case against police–citing police brutality for his treatment at the train station.

President Obama sees a strong parallel between the first Thanksgiving–and the refugees pouring out of Muslim nations like Syria.

“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,” Obama said on Thursday, in a special Thanksgiving version of his weekly address to the American public. “What makes America America is that we offer that chance.”

Over the past few weeks–especially since the November 13 terrorist attacks on Paris–the American people have begun to sour on the idea of taking refugees from predominately Muslim countries.

The controversy only escalated when key officials admitted it’s virtually impossible to sort out “good” refugees–the people Obama described–from “bad” ones–ISIS operatives posing as refugees to gain access to Western countries.

Since then, a bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives has voted for more stringent background checks on refugees. Obama has vowed to veto that bill should it pass the Senate–even though the majority of Americans seem to agree with Congress, not the White House.

Nevertheless, Obama ramped up a guilt offensive on Americans, urging them to show generosity to Muslim refugees:

“I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by loved ones and full of joy and gratitude,” Obama said. “And together, may we all play our own small part in the American story, and write a next chapter that future generations can be thankful for.”

He added: “I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by loved ones and full of joy and gratitude. And together, may we all play our own small part in the American story, and write a next chapter that future generations can be thankful for.”

With the release of poll results this week showing that 64% of Americans oppose President Obama’s plan to welcome at least 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States despite the risk that ISIS would mix their fighters in with real refugees, President Obama said he would veto legislation prohibiting Syrian refugees from coming into the country.

President Obama made the veto threat as many in Congress, including a sizeable number of Democrats in the House, passed H.R. 4038: American SAFE Act of 2015 by a slim veto proof margin of 287 to 137 votes.

If it passes the Senate by a similar margin, H.R. 4038 would force the Obama administration to tighten requirements for refugees entering the U.S. from Syria.

Obama reacted angrily by saying the legislation would introduce “unnecessary and impractical requirements” that would “unacceptably hamper our efforts to assist some of the most vulnerable people in the world.”

His attack on those who supported the bill comes just days after the Islamic State terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people, and injured scores more at six locations simultaneously– making it the worst attack on France since World War II. The sophistication of the attack startled western leaders with the exception of President Obama who saw nothing ominous in the attacks.

This stands in sharp contrast to the reaction Americans were primed for – to hear the president express sincere anger and resolve to finally take ISIS seriously and do more to destroy the organization.

Only later did Obama make a perfunctory statement describing the Islamic State as “this barbaric terrorist organization” and acknowledge “the terrible events in Paris were a terrible and sickening setback.”

In a piece by Michael Barone published in the Washington Examiner, Barone writes that:

“…what really got him (Obama) angry, as the transcript and videotape make clear, were reporters’ repeated questions about the minimal success of his strategy against the Islamic State and Republicans’ proposals for more active engagement in Syria and Iraq”… “as well as critics of his decision to allow 10,000 Syrians into the United States.

The reporters did not seem this time to be absorbing his patient instruction.

The Islamic State “controls less territory than it did before,” he stated – but not much less, and is still holding Iraq’s second largest city and a huge swath of Iraqi and Syrian Desert. Our bombs did pulverize the British-born Islamic State beheader. “We’ve been coordinating internationally to reduce their financing capabilities.”

Obama admitted that the American military could dislodge ISIS but said we would need occupy and control the territory we capture. Instead, Obama doubled down on his so far failed strategy “to degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS with the word “ultimately” writ large – another example of the president’s nuanced wording that avoids specific goals, using specific U.S. capabilities by a specific deadline.

ISIS in America

After the devastating attacks on Paris, Beirut, and the expanding threat of ISIS, many state governors are demanding that the U.S. not accept refugees from Syria. Their stances are the the threat is just too great of accepting potential terrorists onto American soil.

Governor Robert Bentley of Alabama, as well as Governor Greg Abbott of Texas, have been among the most vocal.

Bentley’s statement claims he will stand in direct opposition to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program relocating any Syrian refugees to Alabama, “After full consideration of this weekend’s attacks of terror in the innocent citizens of Paris,”. Neighboring states have already processed a number of refugees.

Gov. Abbott sent a letter directly to President Obama to declare that the state of Texas will not accept Syrian refugees and imploring him to deny access of the rest of the U.S. as well for any refugees. He makes note: “—any one of whom could be connected to terrorism—being resettled in Texas,”

Other states have begun following suit and citing national security as being too important.
