Government Boo

February 2, 2016

I’m just going to crap on the government for a bit.

The new federal government went out of their way to import Syrian refugees into Canada.

You see, for years, Syrians have been fleeing Syria due to a civil war brought on as part of the Arab Spring movement and the Iraqi troubles following Saddam Hussein’s ousting by NATO.

I understand that Syria isn’t the best place to be in right now. The old ruling party is at war with people trying to overthrow it. The old ruling party is corrupt and mean to some people, yadda yadda yadda. It’s the Middle East. This is nothing new. This is the system that was created following World War I by European intervention following the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire. Meanwhile, ISIS or ISIL or the Islamic State or whatever they’re being called today sprung up because nobody was holding them down anymore. (Sidenote: not all the people Iraq and Syria have been holding down were good people, some of them were pretty evil.) ISIS have been causing lots of headaches in the region. Especially for those who don’t subscribe to their specific view of Islam.

Did you know the Middle East is the birthplace of Christianity? Did you know there are still Christians in the Middle East? What do you think ISIS is doing with the Christian communities they find?

Nobody knows. Or those who do know, aren’t getting the word out.

I’m afraid that in ten years or so there will be a big news story about the ethnic cleansing going on in the Levant.

The refugees Canada is bringing in are from the camps in Jordan. These are people who got out a while ago.

I don’t want to sound like a war monger but we need troops on the ground in Syria right now. Not bombers in the sky, not officers and consultants. We need troops there on the ground going town to town to wipe out ISIS.

Canadians remember Rwanda. Our military officers witnessed a genocide. Now, they can witness another one.

 

(I really didn’t make a decent point here. I’m just venting.)

    I think I’ll stay out of this except to say, there is LOTS of word about what’s happening to Christians in the Middle East right now, and none of it is good. If you want the information it’s out there in droves.

    I agree with you 100%.

    And if you’d like some links to places that are involved with trying to rescue Christians out of the Middle East, I can get you that information, too. They can use all the help they can get.

    This is a good place to start if you were leaning that way. http://www.opendoorsusa.org/
