Ezra Levant in Iraq: Refugee childrens' “utopian” art clashes with harsh reality

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In the camp for those I call "the forgotten refugees" — mostly Christians and Yazidis — I noticed artwork created by the children, and sponsored by a German NGO.

Not surprisingly given the leftist slant of such agencies, these murals and paintings reflect a utopia of interfaith harmony.

The reality on the ground, of course, is far different...

That's why The Rebel went to Iraq:

To tell the story of the ISIS genocide against this ancient Christian community, and to provide them with humanitarian aid.

“Fighting for the Yazidis – Rona Ambrose”

Too bad she was not brave enough to fight Harper. Trudeau is making up for Harper’s lack of compassion.

Canada to give asylum to 1,200 primarily Yazidi refugees by end of 2017

“Nearly 400 Yazidi refugees and other survivors of Islamist extremists have already been accepted over the last four months, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen said in announcing the initiative, which is expected to cost $28 million.

But Rempel, who commended the Liberals for taking in the Yazidis after her own previous Conservative government failed to act, said she’s been shocked by the stories she’s heard and amazed by the resilience of the survivors of rape, torture and other unspeakable atrocities."

“What is being said, is that Canada is ignoring the minority Christian and Yazidis, and bringing in almost entirely Muslim ‘refugees’ , which is resulting in a genocide, as we watch them being killed off.”

Ezra Levant and the like did not tell you?

“nO one has said or would say that non Muslims were the recipients of more of the violence in the middle east than Muslims.”

Ezra Levant and the like are only highlighting terrorists persecuting Christians, a sad example of biased and divisive coverage in order to blow things out of proportion.

Ezra Levant and the like are not helping Christian victims of terrorist incidents carried out by White Christians. Why?

In EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents.

“The largest number of attacks in which the terrorist affiliation could be identified were carried out by ethno-nationalist and separatist extremists (99). Attacks carried
out by left-wing violent extremists have been on the rise since 2014; they reached
a total of 27 in 2016, of which most (16) were reported by Italy. The number of
jihadist terrorist attacks decreased from 17 in 2015 to 13 in 2016, of which 6 were
linked to the so-called Islamic State (IS).

Apart from jihadist, ethno-nationalist and left-wing extremist attacks, an increasing
stream of violent assaults by right-wing extremist individuals and groups was
noted across Europe, in particular over the past two years, targeting asylum
seekers and ethnic minorities in general. An average of nearly 10 attacks a day were carried out on refugees in Germany in 2016, according to Germany’s Interior Ministry, as reported in open source media."

Ezra Levant and the like are wrong when they claim terrorists are just after non-Muslims. Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims. Here’s the truth.

“In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.”

“Between 2004 and 2013 about half of all terrorist attacks, and 60% of fatalities due to terrorist attacks, took place in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan – all of which have a mostly Muslim population.”

“Most terrorist attacks are rooted in geopolitics. Religion is certainly a part of them, but it is not the only part.”

Or is pointing out that Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims and in EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents not good for generating web traffic and selling books?

Trolling Ray, you should get a job in the Okanagan since you like cherry picking so much.

Every single word that comes out of your mouth is dismissal of the truth. Your contempt for Christians oozes from every cherry picked twisted word. It is as if you were dropped on your head or have English as a second language. nO one has said or would say that non Muslims were the recipients of more of the violence in the middle east than Muslims. There are a lot more Muslims in the middle east than non Muslims and Muslims have been killing other Muslims for centuries, it;s what Muslims do. What is being said, is that Canada is ignoring the minority Christian and Yazidis, and bringing in almost entirely Muslim ‘refugees’ , which is resulting in a genocide, as we watch them being killed off. That is the idea, kill off the non Muslims. It is just that Muslims think their tribe or sect is the only true Muslim so they also end up spending a lot of time killing each other, which is not my fking problem!

I am all for helping ex Muslims or those disillusioned who call themselves ‘moderates’, but first priority for a Christian country should be to protect Christians.

You can rant about ‘Christian’ terrorists but your argument is ridiculous. All you do is out yourself as an apologist and hater of Christians with your spin. You are either an apologist ,up Justins Butt or you are a supremacist Muslim who is terminally offended and wants to exterminate Christians and Yazidis. Which is it troll?

I listed more than three. Just because you don’t agree with something does not mean it’s not true.

The poor children of the world. They are being programmed like little robots to grow up already formed political leftists. Am I ever glad I went back to Church when I did. I feel sorry for anyone who does not have faith with everything that is happening. It was predicted the world would go through ‘the storm’. Christianity does prevail; when, I’m not sure. We are not being persecuted like those in the Middle East. Our job is to pray, pray and pray.

If Christians are causing all the terror, how come it’s not in the news? Is mainstream media hiding it? If so, why blame Ezra? Have you contacted msm outlets to complain? If not, why not?

As for the reports you linked – you do realize that’s all disinformation, designed specifically to draw attention away from the problems with Islam – right?

Billy Howard i found the same when i was young, even in my small town we had all types of people , even a Muslim teacher from Egypt, he used the flexible portion of social studies to teach us about ancient Egypt and the Pharaohs and such, was quite interesting. Never once did he impose his religion on us , nor did we on him.

Trudeau’s Diversity is BS. With the help of Trudeau, if permitted to continue, Muslims will eventually take over Canada and Canadians will become a minority.

The reason that Muslims are spreading out, all over the world, is that the Quaran states that it is their duty to kill all who are not of the Muslim Faith.

It is time for all Canadians to understand that Muslims are here, not just to take our Country from us but also to Kill us.

If we do nothing, we will die by the Sword. If we start fighting back, NOW, we may stand a chance of surviving and our throats will stay intact.

Our first battle is with Justin Trudeau, the Traitor.

Ezra, the utopian vision you talk about does, or rather did, IMO exist in Canada as I was growing up in the 70’s and 80’s. Us kids and young adults didn’t give much consideration to religious differences back then. When we were young, there weren’t constant reminders in pictures and advertising of religious icons exemplifying our “diversity”.
When we aren’t reminded of our differences through in-your-face billboards and advertisements, we come together in community around other things, like sports, festivals, picnics, and shared hobbies.
Trudeau and his globalist cohort’s promotion of identity politics and dividing us by race and religion is destroying that sense of community we once had.
The children shouldn’t be drawing pictures of churches and mosques. That just emphasizes their differences. The pictures should be of things most can enjoy together: like soccer, beachballs, fireworks and iphones.
Throughout history religion has been a source of division and war. Have we not learned that by promoting our differences of religion (through ill-conceived notions like “diversity is our strength”) we’re just perpetuating conflict and undermining our search for friendship and unity?
