Predictably, some in the U.S. insist that the U.S. immediately absorb a huge segment of the mostly Muslim refugees crossing from Syria through Turkey and through a number of European countries to Germany, with Chancellor Merkel's government absorbing 800,000 to add to the two percent of the German population made up of mostly Muslim Turks. The new Muslim immigrants will swell the percentage to three overnight.
A better way to infiltrate Germany with jihad butchers—militant Muslims of 9/11 caliber—could not be imagined. They will appear as “just your ordinary Muslims,” take up residence, meet and plan in their mosques, and carry out their various brands of terrorism, just as they've already done in France, Spain, the UK and the U.S. Fellow Muslims in Turkey knew this—Muslims kill each other as a matter of course—and said “No, thanks.” This may sound harsh but it's something the people in this country had better give attention, especially because lame-duck President Obama may feel inclined to replicate Merkel's action.
It's instructive vis-a-vis the in-air bombing of Pan Am #103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in December 1988, killing 270 people in the plane and on the ground, that the bomb was placed on the plane in Frankfurt, Germany. It was the work of Muslim Libyans, one of whom was convicted years later of the crime. Saddam Hussein was responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths—mostly Muslim deaths.
This isn't to say the U.S. has no responsibility to help needy people. The 12 million undocumented Hispanics in the U.S. are proof that this country has not been derelict in its duty. Those folks equal four percent of the U.S. population and are for the most part peaceful and law-abiding. Indeed, 15% of the total U.S. population is Hispanic, the largest group of the most recent immigrants. This indicates the U.S. has remained in recent times a genuine benefactor, though many take issue with current governmental policies especially regarding entitlements. On this basis alone, this nation should not feel responsible for further influxes from abroad.
Muslims account for about 4% of the Danish population and between five- and ten-percent of that of France. Muslim acts of terrorism have been well-publicized in those countries, one of the most recent in the Charlie Hebdo killings of last January in Paris, in which 12 were murdered in cold blood. In England, second generation Muslims now form constant danger in all public places. Just over ten years ago, Muslim bombers blew up three subway trains and one bus in London, killing 52 and injuring 700, in well-coordinated attacks on the same day.
In this country, the Boston Marathon killings come to mind, as well as the failed attempts on airliners and the ones foiled by government before they could be carried out. This is not even to mention the monstrous carnage of 11 September 2001, with some 3,000 blown to bits or burned alive in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. The perpetrators of these crimes were Muslims acting in the name of religion, most of them losing their lives in the process.
Besides the 800,000 accepted this year in Germany, there will be 500,000 accepted per year going forward, according to German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel. Since the Muslim threat will be operative there, too, one wonders why Germany takes the chance. A reason: The German birth-rate is the lowest in the world, 8.2 births per thousand citizens over the last five years. By contrast, that figure is 50 in the African nation of Niger and 12.5 in the U.S., which has had a one percent uptick in 2014 over 2013.
Most of the refugees are Syrian, and the Syrian birth-rate is nearly 23 births per thousand, or four times that of native Germans. An aging population must be supported by people at work and paying taxes, so the population must be kept at a sufficient level to sustain the nation's economy and care for the old. The math is simple but the problem is complex and could be very dangerous. Germany will become Muslim-governed in the fairly near future, another training location for terrorists. ISIS is headquartered in Syria.
The U.S. should contribute to refugee-relief but should not endanger its citizens through stupid immigration practices. This warning is especially applicable when remembering 11 September 14 years ago.
And so it goes.
