Blah Blah Blah… Ottawa implored to take urgent action on refugees

If there is political will a country can move mountains in terms of resettling refugees, says Ratna Omidvar, chairperson of Lifeline Syria.

“In every major refugee crisis in the last century it was political will that moved the mountains — to bring the Hungarian refugees in 1956, the Czech refugees in the 1960s, the Ismailis in the 1970s, the Indo-Chinese in the 1980s,” says Omidvar. “In each instance it was political leadership that moved the mountains.”


For starters I suggest it unwise to trust anything from an organization called “Lifeline Syria.”

But foremost the Hungarians, Czechs, Vietnamese etc were not members of  the Islamic cult whose adherent’s wanton slaughter of one another is responsible for this mess.

Canada should not put its citizens at risk by importing the Mid-East’s cult of violence.

Rescue the Christians. Leave the problem children behind.

    Its disgusting how the NDP and Liberals are using the refugee invasion to score points against Harper. I have never seen an election where the media and politicians have been so biased against a sitting PM. Even the Sept. edition of the Anglican Journal website is ranting about Harper over the refugee issue. Of course the media and politicians don’t care that maybe Canadians don’t want our country flooded with muslims that were raised in a police state that taught them from child birth to hate Jews, Christians and the West. Then we have Wynne blowing hundreds of thousands of tax payer dollars on the refugees today.

      Trudeau’s one quote…..

      “You don’t get to suddenly develop compassion in the middle of an election campaign.”

      ….. really irks me.

      Trudeau is accusing Harper of exploiting the refugee crisis for electoral gains when he is doing the same goddamned thing.

      The media could call Trudeau out on his hypocrisy if they weren’t such insufferable hypocrites themselves.

      • Trudeau is a jackass

        • Cheryl

          Agree completely! If Trudeau gets in then Canada is lost forever. I was here before Senior Trudeau infected our country and Canada was a great. If we have another Trudeau we will have lost our country for good.

          • Cheryl

            Should omit the word “a” before the word great. Not paying attention to what I am printing. So pissed off with what is happening in Canada by all these foreign people protesting here to say we need more refugees.

        • Alain

          Not really. He is just an empty suit spouting whatever his radical advisors tell him the same as Obama. By the way those advisors are pretty much the same.

      • Petrilla

        I think that was a pretty stupid thing he said, he’s been the only candidate praying in a mosque, did he actually become muslim that time.? Nope, what I could not take, would be his childish breath delivery. He takes a breath before he pronounces, dear Lord, spare Canada from that. Obama, after 8 years on the teleprompter has managed his ah, his um. Trudeau, just can’t speak without his breathiness. Drives me crazy. But he could probably do with a teleprompter and voice lessons.

    • Alain

      From what I am seeing this is backfiring big time. Joe and Jane Canadian are not so stupid to fall for this rubbish, and in fact are much more interested in domestic issues. It is only the Left that is in a frenzy with their HDS.

      • Brett_McS

        A Trumpesque immigration policy from Harper would guarantee (1) a complete freak-out melt-down by the MSM and (2) a stomping electoral victory. Both would be great!

        • FactsWillOut

          The CPC is like the GOPe. Both are for mass immigration.

          • Alain

            That is population replacement, not immigration. Unfortunately we have no political party willing to address this. We only have a choice of which party would bring in even more who are incompatible with our culture and values and want to impose their ways on us.

          • FactsWillOut

            Big government likes a Hobbsian population to lord over. Lockians don’t need or like big gov’t, so they must be replaced.

  • Everyone Else

    the simple answer for those who want muslims to immigrate

    1. There are no successful Muslim countries.

    2. All previous waves of immigrants have adapted to the culture of their host country.

    3. Muslims want their new country to adapt to them.

      I really liked the stories in Hungary about we are so hungry and thirsty, when offered bottled water emptied them on the ground. Like the French woman and her nice womenn Calais that offered them food, among them cans of beans first they weren’t halal, but then they were a day or two over their best before date. I have eaten cans of beans two years later!!! they’re are canned.. These are not refugees as witness their nice clothes and iPhones. They are spoiled, thankless creeps that NO ONE wants. Get them the hell out. As the days go by we will see that the little boy on the beach was a lie too, mark my words.

      • Bataviawillem

        That one photo will cost us tax payers billions.

  • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

    The Toronto Star devoted practically their whole Friday news section to the migrants.
    (See the poorly-lit photo below….)

    Article after article after column after column about Muslims who desperately need, and fully expect to get, the help of the Kuffar.

    The last story before turning to the editorial page and more pro-migrant columns was this story about some billboards in the U.S. and Canada that Muslims are using to spread the ‘peaceful’ message about Islam…..

    ‘They feature statements such as: “Muhammad believed in peace, social justice, women’s rights” and “Muhammad always taught love, not hate; peace, not violence.”’

    I’m to believe (Ha! Ha!) Islam is all about peace and love for everyone, including the Non-believers, after reading pages of stories and columns about a large scale migrant tragedy that’s caused by Muslims’ sectarian wars and a lack of help from Muslims in the Emirates and elsewhere.

    Actions speaker louder than words- your billboards are a waste of money and effort, Muslims.

    ps – Channel to channel coverage of the migrants on my TV too. Oh look, ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ is on PBS!

    • Bizarre.

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        Rosie Dimanno is off her meds again.

        edit: To the Toronto Star employee or intern who reads this: I am only kidding. Rosie Dimanno is a wonderful, completely rational individual.

    • Ho Hum

      Regarding the “Muhammad believes in Peace” billboards I laughed when I read that the sponsor was the Islamic Circle of North America “ICNA”

      This “moderate” Muslim group put out a jihadi educational guide!

      It’s former President was charged with war crimes!

      • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

        re: ICNA’s jihadi guide

        Do they not ever stop to think that we Non-muslims will find out about their hypocrisy?

        Do they really think we are that dumb (‘jahil’)?

        Or have they just become that emboldened/arrogant because of political correctness?

        Or could it be that because Islam is a ‘religion’, the Muslims believe their actions are all divine and righteous, regardless of how odd or unacceptable they are in the Western world?

        It’s probably a combination of all four.

        • Ho Hum

          I think that they are confident that the mainstream media won’t bother to dig into the truth and expose their lies. Far from it – here we have the AP spreading ICNA’s propaganda.

  • Frances

    Would be glad to help sponsor some refugees – but will restrict my help to Christians and Yazidis who have NO ONE ELSE to help.

    • Exactly

    • Yusuf_Al_Kafir

      That makes sense to this atheist.

  • Ho Hum

    I took a look at this “Lifeline Syria” website and found some interesting things when you go to the “DONATE” page. On this page there is a link to the “ARAB CULTURAL COMMUNITY CENTER” (note spelling of “center”). When you click on the link it brings you to a San Francisco based Arab “charity”. From their website it appears that this “charity” in San Francisco caters to MUSLIM Arabs. The ONLY refugees that are deserving of any support are the Christian and Yazidi Arab minorities AND the ethnic Kurds!

    Also they have a link to the “World Food Program” a controversial “charity” based in Rome that is rife with corruption. It is estimated that hundreds of millions of aid this group sent to Somalian went to fund Islamist rebels. I am sure the same thing is happening in Syria. Giving money to this group is like trying to put out a fire using gasoline.

        It’s amazing how many prominent Toronto residents have been duped by this feel-good group. John Tory has donated money as has the President of Ryerson (at least that is their claim – probably not coming out of their pocket). Not the first time the President of Ryerson has been duped by a Muslim “charity” either. A few month’s ago his office gave $10,000 to a “30 orphans in 30 days” fundraising drive organized by the Muslim Student Association. The money was earmarked for “Human Concern International” a “charity” group that funded Al Qaeda in the past (Omar Kadhr father headed up HCI in Packistan). When “HCI’s” ties to terrorism were revealed the MSA of Ryerson severed their ties but they never announced who would receive the over $75,000 raised. I tried to interest every news organization in the city to cover this scandal (including the Rebel Media) and they all ignored the story. We have huge sums of money being raised on college and university campuses that are funding terrorist groups and no one wants to touch the story.

  • Ho Hum

    If Harper was smart he would announce that Canada will focus only on those refugees that are at the highest risk of being killed , i.e. Christian, Yazidi and Kurdish ethnic minorities and he should challenge the other leaders to make the same pledge. I think he would win the election with such a pledge because he would be saying in essence NO ARAB MUSLIMS! I know many Kurds are Muslim but they are very different from the Arab or African Muslims. I don’t know if the boy who drowned was Muslim but I saw his family in Vancouver and they were totally westernized (women wore tight fitting clothes with no head scarfs) and lived in a nice home, i.e. they seem like productive citizens that are fitting in nicely with our culture. Of course to make such a pledge would require some guts which Harper seems to lack.

    • Petrilla

      Prime Minister Harper and the Conservatives tried to only get Christians and Yazidis here and were shot down by the courts. Let’s remember it was Justin Trudeaus father PM Pierre Trudeau and his Liberal governments , all Quebecers, who TOLD CANADA that WE would take ANYONE into Canada back in the 70s. We were never asked, we were told that now we would adopt metric and accept ANYONE from around the globe. Crap democracy if you ask me. . I was in right there in the beginning of the Vietnamese Boat People, they were Christian, humble and fit in. A pride to Canada. Then came the Somalis, so many groups who welcomed them, now wonder why? A church lady in Belleville confided that those church ladies had done everything, they never seemed appreicative, she now wonders why she bothered. They did not fit in. As muslims they loathed white Christian ladies helping them. Still do.
      Why? 20 years later, have Somalis fit in to Toronto, please tell me I am wrong. It makes me think of those those migrant invaders in Hungary today. Soldiers offered water and toy for the VERY FEW KIDS. They despite saying hungry, thirsty in English, emptied their water bottles on the ground. WHY? A TRUE REFUGEE, would be thankful for anything. Would a true mother or father turn down a bottle of water for their child? Think about that. Why are these all AN ARMY of young men, who belatedly thought they should shove some babies, old women and a guy on crutches in front of the cameras? Because they are smarter than any media the free world has. Doesn’t that make you think why our media lap it up. And why YOU should be smarter?

      • Ho Hum

        I don’t recall that court battle and I don’t know how courts would have a say in a policy such as this. Despite what a lot of people believe Canada is not obligated to bring unlimited numbers of refugees from everywhere in the world. Last year Canada brought in ~2000 Syrian refugees whereas the United States only accepted ~1000 (despite the fact that the US is ten times the size of Canada).

        The problem is Harper is not a strong leader. He should announce that we cannot solve all the refugee problems so we are only going to focus on those refugees that are most risk of being killed. This policy will eliminate a lot of (if not all) the bad Islamists.

  • Frances

    Rescue the Christian and the Yazidis. Then, if we must take Muslims, take Kurds, who are persecuted by Turks, Iraquis, Iranians, and Syrians. But not the father of the boy who died: too many unanswered queries there.

    • Concerned Canadian

      “Then, if we must take Muslims” Why would you think we must take muslims. Quite frankly, any Muslims would be a disaster for Canada. Western society is commiting suicide.

      • Ho Hum

        From what I have seen the Kurds are nothing like the Muslim’s that are creating all the world problems. In the Kurdistan region of Iraq for example in Kurdish cities like Erbil they have bars and nightclubs. They have beauty pageants for their women that include swimsuit competitions. Ethnically they are very close to European and it is not rare to see children with blond (even red!) hair so I don’t have a problem with them coming here.

      • Frances

        Concerned: the Kurds are persecuted by every country in which they reside. Their “homeland” was divided up among Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq; all those countries have persecuted the Kurds. Also, they seem to be Muslims who have a decent respect for women.

        • FactsWillOut

          No, they don’t.
          Unless you think not stoning to death = decent respect. A pretty low bar if I do say so myself.

      • Petrilla

        We already take more Muslims than I would like. Why. WHO ARE THEY? WHERE ARE THEY FROM, WHAT DO THEY BELIEVE? Read the koran, this is an invasion of our once peaceful and prososperous countries, paid for by the blood of young Canadian, Brit, US, Aus,NZ SA men. Generations died in foreign fields, what for? Why? Their sacrifice meant nothing? I DO NOT ACCEPT THIS PREMISE that NOW we owe the WHOLE WORLD what we lost generations for? Why? Where are any leaders? Now we just take them cause the UN says we should. Who is the UN? Who are these unelected creeps living high of FREE PEOPLES taxpayer dollars and telling us how to live? Which is I suppose better than the way poor Hungary and Greece and Calais have. This a cauldron on boil. Leaders of the Free World, giving into this, know full well what they are doing. They must see it as we do. Now THEY need to answer. Hungary already has, so has Slovakia.

    Most ME Christians and ALL ME Muslims are anti-Zionist Jew haters. Let ’em rot.

    • Alain

      Bingo because culture trumps religion.

    • Brett_McS

      True, but according to Caroline Glick there has been a recent turn around amongst Israeli Christians away from alignment with the Arab to alignment with the Israeli. That is, some of them are waking up. But then, they are not the Christians that will be refugees.

      • FactsWillOut

        Maybe in Israel, but not in the rest of the ME.

          There is a strong hatred for Israel among some Palestinian Christians.

            …and a stronger hatred for Islam.

            A bloke at my office fits this to a t. His Anti Israel stance is only tempered by his anti Islam stance.

    • k1962

      I think the Israelis have some connections to the Kurds and were supplying them with weapons and training at some point in time.

      • FactsWillOut

        Yes, they have been. There is even a little movement to bring Kurds into Gaza.

        • k1962

          Can you expand on that? How and why?

          • FactsWillOut

            It was some news item I read about a year ago. Basically, some Israelis thought it would be a good idea to bring Iraqi Kurdish refugees into Gaza.

            Myself,I think that as Kurds are Muslim, then they are just another gang of Jew-hating animals.

          • k1962

            Many years ago I watched an off shoot of the Arthur show with my daughter. I think it was with Buster his rabbit friend. Anyway, he “visited” with a Kurdish family who lived in the UNITED STATES. The dad acted as an interpreter for the Americans in Iraq. What I remember is how the women and girls cooked the food and then watched while the men and boys ate. The girl explained that in her culture females eat after the males are finished and get to eat whatever is leftover. It was a 1/2 hour show, but that is what stayed with me and it did not sit well with me. Don’t know much els about the Kurds except that they weren’t given their own countries by the British etc. when the land in the Middle East was divided up and that they are discriminated against in Turkey and other Muslim countries.

          • FactsWillOut

            The Kurds are basically a thorn in the side of the NATO backed Muslim governments in the ME.
            Kurds are just as fragmented as any other gang of tribal savages. Some fight for Assad, some against Assad, some for AQ, some against… In short, they are Muslims. Shia/Sunni/Kurd/Alawite, etc. Not really much of a difference between them.

  • Brett_McS

    Only Muslim ‘refugees’ are making it out of the Middle East into the US because all the US embassy staff who run these programs are Muslim. I don’t know the situation with other western countries’ embassies but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is the same.

    • Very likely so,

    • Ho Hum

      I am not surprised that the US embassy staff are Muslim. Not long ago the State department was headed up by Hillary Clinton and her Chief of Staff (and lesbian lover) Huma Abedin worked for the Muslim brotherhood (as did her family) and of course bathhouse Barry has his own ties to the Muslim brotherhood (which includes a half brother in Kenya who is a high ranking MB figure).
