I find this bit of news to be quite disturbing:
The State Department confirmed today that as many as 1,350 Iraqi Palestinians – once the well-treated guests of Saddam Hussein and now at outs with much of Iraqi society – will be resettled in the US, mostly in southern California, starting this fall.
It will be the largest-ever resettlement of Palestinian refugees into the US...
Why in the world are we accepting these people?
As Mark Krikorian points out at the link, these are people who danced in the streets at the destruction of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Why should they get the opportunity to settle in a nation they loathe, while countless others who yearn to come here are blocked due to a poorly-devised quota system?
And why won't some of the 20+ Arab nations in the region take these guys in? Oh, right, they need them as pawns in their war against the Jews. Good thing they can count on Brack Obama not to embarrass them with the obvious, and take a few pesky Palis off their hands while leaving the bulk of them poor, armed, restive, and full of hate, conveniently right at Israel's front door.
Interesting as well that these people are "on the outs" with mainstream Iraqi society. I wonder why? Are they still supporters of terror and dissent even in their new homeland? If so, what makes anyone think that they will change their stripes in SoCal ?
And will these Palestinians refugees ever become part of mainstream American society? Or will they be urged not to join the "melting pot" (a phrase no longer used in these days of multiculturalism) and instead be counseled by the grievence experts to nurse their hatreds and grudges, while building a "Gaza West" to continue their war against the Jews, and America?
Illogical, stupid, and not well thought out. In other words, just what we've grown used to expecting from the Obama administration...
