According to a new report published by the UK-based counter-extremism think tank Quilliam International, Islamofascist groups like ISIL, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram are using child recruits to infiltrate the refugee wave currently overtaking Europe, paying smugglers to bring child recruits across to Europe and offering up to $2,000 for each child recruited inside the refugees camps in Lebanon and Jordan.
To believe that this exact same operation isn't being undertaken where refugees to the United States and Canada are concerned is to be naive to the extreme. Sadly, many in the West are that naive.
On the other hand we then have those who are so politically jaded and partisan that they refuse to accept these realities as fact. It is so important to those elected to office on the Left to oppose measures meant to secure our country against Islamofascism that they would purposely ignore that ISIL, al Qaeda and Boko Haram are doing this.
Then there are the ideologically partisan who - even in the face of the truth - refuse to accept reality because of the way they want it to be. Islam is a "religion of peace" even though the literal translation of the word Islam means "submission."
It is not unreasonable to want to vet those coming to our country. It is not a mandate that we in the United States have to accept anyone into our nation. Those who are taking a stand against knowing who is coming to our shores are inviting an embedded danger they either don't understand or are too self-important to contemplate.
Maybe we should only allow women and children from lands rife with Islamofascist terrorism into the United States until they sort it out over there. That would show humanitarianism and exclude the major terrorist demographic. Just a thought...
