"Refugees" then and now: A history lesson

Stephen GraystoneRebel Blogger
 

The Left seems adamant about comparing the current "refugee" crisis to that of the Jews fleeing Europe in the 1930s.

They believe that it was a stain on our history that we turned some Jews away, and sent them home to perish in camps. The Left warns that history will be repeating itself should we fail to welcome migrants from Muslim majority countries, but the situations are very different.

When the Jews were being persecuted by the Nazis, the west had few reservations about calling the Nazis by name.

There was little fear of offending German minorities. Many German minorities in the west publicly denounced Nazi doctrine.

Such is not the case in 2015.

The refugees from the Middle East aren't looking just for safe haven, but for benefits. They're outright refusing to move to countries that don't pay out benefits.

To top that off, some of these refugees are silent about ISIL or extremism within their religion, or they admit to actually supporting it. Non-Muslim liberals are having trouble squaring these facts with their insistence that "extremists don't represent Islam."

The Jews fleeing Europe also weren't bred in a culture that hates the west, disregards women's rights, and that kills adulterers and homosexuals.

Although I'm sure some of them had views about women and homosexuals that would be considered unacceptable today, I've never heard Jews murdering women who didn't cover up, or pushing homosexuals from the tops of buildings.

I'm not saying every Muslim believes in these things, but the Middle East has been a barbaric, regressive region for some time. So when these people are raised with war, hatred, and murder all around them for their whole lives, it's no doubt they will bring that here.

I'm more than happy to help those in need. What I'm not willing to do is sacrifice or give up anything I was raised with to accommodate a culture who would not reciprocate that generosity. There are good Muslims in the world, and I welcome them with open arms.

To the liberals who can't make accurate historical analogies, just stop with the social justice warrior nonsense. It makes you look foolish.

We seem to forget that over a million Jews were for living for thousands of years in North Africa and the Middle East. All were expelled after WWII by the same Islamic forces operating today, never to return. Their land, houses, schools and businesses were confiscated. Every country there made sure that no trace of this should exist. Most of the Jewish population in Israel comes from Iraq, Syria (Jerry Seinfeld’s mother could tell you more), Lebanon, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco…
The fact remains that no Jews are allowed to live in those countries even if they were the indigenous population of this region.

The Muslims are not coming here to get along, they are coming here for a free ride, and to take over our country. We can’t afford all of these people and shouldn’t be bringing them here. They should help them in their own country, but alas that just won’t do for the UN, as they need a terrorist mob to take down Canada.

The UK is a perfect example – they come – go on benefits – and never get off.

All the while demanding the UK change to accommodate islamics

It is happening here – Christmas concerts cancelled, no pork in some fast food stores, schools clearing classrooms for Islamic prayer – while the Lords Prayer is banned, taking over the streets for prayer, demanding schools change for them, demanding we not eat in front of them during their starvation holiday of eid.

Plus the usual:
Female genital mutilation
Forced marriage of children to older male relatives
Honour killings
Preaching hatred of Christians
Preaching how to beat your wife
Preaching death to homosexuals and lesbians
Household imprisonment of women and female children

And so much more

Why would anyone even begin to want to import this into Canada?
