Media, opposition exploit child's death to attack Harper -- ignoring Tories' humanitarian, military response to ISIS

Brian LilleyArchive

People around the world have been moved by the photo of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi, whose body washed up on a Turkish beach. The migrant child died, along with this brother and mother, when their boat capsized.

Reports, now proven false, claimed Abdula Kurdi's sister in Vancouver had applied to bring them to Canada and that application was denied.

Regardless, the Media Party and the opposition is cynically exploiting this tragedy as a way to attack Stephen Harper. Mulcair's statement that Canada is "doing nothing" is extraordinary, since he wants to halt airstrikes against ISIS -- the terrorists who created the crisis.

Justin Trudeau's remarks weren't any better, saying Canada isn't what it used to be. I give the Liberal leader a lesson in his own party's history in response, and lists all the humanitarian aid Canada has directed to Syria.

Finally, a reminder that refugees don't just need help from government. All of us can step up as part of our communities to assist them as well.

Who was Assad a “ruthless dictator” to? The folks who all say they wanna go back to Syria and that it wasn’t that bad there? The 10% of Christians who lived in peace prior attacking Assad? NO. Assad was a “ruthless dictator” to the Sunni extremist MINORITY who wanted to create a Sharia Caliphate.

I see the same old crap here. “We gotta get ISIS”, “ISIS is the biggest threat since Hitler”… Well guess who created them you clowns. No more bright ideas from the morons who started this in the first place. Your inability to see the weight of your actions abroad has disqualified you from further destabilizing the world.

Assad’s wife and daughter don’t wear burqas… Then we got our government kissing “king” Abdullah’s (Saudi Arabia) ass, talking about what a great “force for peace” he was, the guy who helped create ISIS, the guy who locked his daughter up for thirteen years. You morons clearly don’t know a dictator when you see one.

T Black I have said Assad wasn’t the real problem. The rebels are. Sure Assad is a ruthless dictator but the rebels are worse. Look at what our interference did in Egypt and Lydia. Chaos. In that region dictators are the only viable solutions

Here is a link to a video for Jimmy, Terry and every other socialist that posts here to watch.

Watch the video that Tim Ball has in his article.

On target, Brian….
Albeit, however I don’t believe the fight is with Assad, I have heard Syrian citizens’ say he is not the tyrant! But I am too far away to determine the truth of that – perhaps our Military who have been there, have a better handle on that truth?
I believ our main enemy here is ISIS and the people who are financing them!

Exactly on target with the truth!

“Various beliefs in a supreme being (God) have been the source of most of the greatest conflicts this world or ours has experienced.” Actually, the belief that men are better than God, equal to God, or that God doesn’t exist and men are in charge has led to the horrifying conflicts you speak of.

God has given us universal, irrevocable rights by way of Natural Law. Men have sought to take those Rights away, thru various deceptive “legal” strategies or outright force.

The problem I see is not a belief in God, it is an overwhelming disbelief in God. The media, left wing parties, and fake “right-wing” party have ALL sought to overthrow Assad. Your ignorance has caused this mayhem and death. Do humanity a favor and recognize that what little jurisdiction you may have is bound by the borders of this country.

SANDA GWYNNE do u have a link of that, would like to quote it on another site after verification. Thanx

John Albertan – Thanks for that link.

I wonder if the media will apologize for using this to attack the Conservatives when in fact these people had not even applied to get into Canada yet. Yea. We all know the answer to that one.

They will do like they have been doing since 2006 when they accuse Harper of something again and again. When it is proven that the media falsely accused Harper, they do not apologize, but they suddenly go silent on that accusation and then go on with the next accusation, leaving it unresolved, which leaves people with the impression that the Conservatives are guilty of all these things when in fact they are not. The media has been doing this all throughout since 2006. It is disgustingly immoral.

There is a new fact to this story, that has nothing to do with the Kurdi family fleeing Turkey because of civil unrest. The sister, during a taped interview, admits the reason why Abdullah put his family in danger, is because he wanted to get new teeth and wanted to go to Europe because he couldn’t afford to get it done in Turkey.

Atheists are not interested in just being atheists, they want to expunge all religious beliefs from the planet. That is not going to happen. The more Christianity is attacked, the more it grows. Look through history to see this is true.

Barry Lusk said, "Various beliefs in a supreme being (God) have been the source of most of the greatest conflicts this world or ours has experienced. "

Barry, that simply is not the case. Check out the communist regimes. They have killed more people that all of the religious wars that have every happened on this planet all combined. Now frankly I don’t care what you believe, but I am just correcting this BS that atheists always seem to have wrong.
commented 2015-09-04 11:48:35 -0400
I certainly wouldn’t agree with that Barry Lusk. I do however believe in being discriminating(not a bad word). The foundations of this country were built on the Christian faith, and as Canadians, we have a right to keep it that way.
To expect to ‘cleanse’ the world of all religion, is too silly a statement to even comment on. There is a reason people fight for what they believe in. Go ahead and try to extinguish that.
We can discriminate, and allow only immigrants who wish to assimilate into our culture. Some are obviously more apt to than others, so we discriminate between them.

Just listened to a talk show blasting Mulclair and Trudeau on their shameless bid for political points based on this child’s death. Almost every caller agreed. Many were livid about these idiots. Most as want tightly controlled immigration.

Barry Lusk,

if you cannot, then keep your atheism to yourself.
Which wars have started over religion?
commented 2015-09-04 10:56:44 -0400
The bases for the conflict in the middle east is religion. The conflict between the various sects of the Muslim faith fosters these conflicts. Canada, if they are to allow peoples from these ravaged countries to immigrate to Canada, must choose only those who profess a non religious life style. I and others do not want any more immigrants to enter our country bring with them their religion and their hostile conflicts their religions encourage. I, as you might assume, am an atheist and believe in no supreme being. Various beliefs in a supreme being (God) have been the source of most of the greatest conflicts this world or ours has experienced. No entry to this country will be allowed unless you profess no religious beliefs. I know this may be hard but If you can’t manage that then stay where you are. Modern science and their answers about the cosmos and its origins discount the possibility of a supreme being and the necessity for a supreme being. Believing is a 1st century mind set. Get educated and put the lies you were told as a child behind you.

Shame on the MSM for using children to push their agenda, absolutely disgusting.

“Let me guess – it’s God’s will.”, says Jimbot.

No, it was the open sea, in a crowded raft, with no life jackets, and the fatal decision to leave their safe haven in Istanbul for such a precarious and dangerous undertaking, not well timed or thought out.

We are going to be guilted into taking in more refugees, If they knew they couldn’t come, they might not set out on such trips in the first place. Why did these people not stay in Istanbul? They would still be alive today.

E Kuhns Mulclair was the worste for blaming Harper. His earlier statements were attacking Harper’s lack of opening the flood Gates to immigrants in conflict areas. He tied the child’s death directly to Harper’s policies. Probably advised to tone it down. Thousands of kids are dying at the hands of Muslims. The problem is logistically impossible to solve

“But, but, it’s not our fight”

All the more proof that the left only believe in bandage solutions. They despise getting to the core of the problem and doing something at that point.
commented 2015-09-04 06:54:49 -0400
I actually only heard Mulcair say that right now is not a time for placing any kind of blame; that it’s time to act and do something. I thought that was one of the most mature responses from any of the candidates for awhile. But I also wants to add: why would holding dual citizenship be an issue? I have dual citizenship and it makes me no less Canadian; no less passionate about this country in which I live. I will not sign a petition about Mulcair having dual citizenship. It’s ridiculous. There are countless IMPORTANT issues worth signing petitions for.

Last word: I completely agree that the original reports that the Syrian family was trying to get into canada were proven to be false. Media should not be sharing any news that is not fact checked. Unfortunately it happens (ever watch Fox News?!) and fortunately the truth behind that false announcement was published fairly quickly. You can only hope they learn when these things happen.
