14. Thanks for posting the Doonesbury Toon

Twitter, Facebook and most other social media is not accessible. I don't have any accounts. For this reason, when anyone posts a thread with just a link to FB or Twitter I must scroll through the replies to get the gist of the topic.

2. "Grayzones":

http://www.memrijttm.org/dabiq-vii-feature-article-there-is-no-longer-any-gray-zone-the-world-includes-only-two-camps-that-of-isis-and-that-of-its-enemies.html

"The grayzone is critically endangered, rather on the brink of extinction. Its endangerment began with the blessed operations of September 11th, as these operations manifested two camps before the world for mankind to choose between, a camp of Islam – without the body of Khilāfah [a caliphate] to represent it at the time – and a camp of kufr [unbelief] – the crusader coalition… But the fiery zeal of the broken Muslim Ummah began to cool by the hazy events known as 'the Arab Spring' as well as the lack of a body representing Islam (the Khilāfah) then. The Muslims saw the same aforementioned movements, 'scholars,' callers, sects, and even the apostate tawāghīt [rulers of the Arab states] get involved in 'supporting' the cause of the oppressed Muslims in Shām [Syria]. And so confusion spread, and the withering of the grayzone was slowed or almost halted…"

"The Muslims in the West will quickly find themselves between one of two choices, they either apostatize and adopt the kufrī [infidel] religion propagated by Bush, Obama, Blair, Cameron, Sarkozy, and Hollande in the name of Islam so as to live amongst the kuffār [infidels] without hardship, or they perform hijrah [emigrate] to the Islamic State and thereby escape persecution from the crusader governments and citizens... Muslims in the crusader countries will find themselves driven to abandon their homes for a place to live in the Khilāfah, as the crusaders increase persecution against Muslims living in Western lands so as to force them into a tolerable sect of apostasy in the name of 'Islam' before forcing them into blatant Christianity and democracy."

7. That is exactly correct.

Our right wing is all about creating Da'esh recruits.

8. Bullshit...ISIS does not care if we accept Syrian refugees or not, aside from..

 

...their ability to easier slip into the country if we have opened our borders to them.

This is the same tired argument made every time Radical Muslims decide to attack people who are just going about their evenings.

19. Rightly so. Anti-refugee prejudice (judging all by the actions of none) has no place here

No refugee has committed a terrorist act in Paris or America.

17. Yes IS does want us to reject Syrian refugees, for lots of reasons.

IS wants them out of Syria.

IS wants their land and wealth.

IS wants the West to be more confused and more tied up in knots.

IS wants careless people in the West to automatically reject Muslims and Middle Easterners so that there can be more political infighting and strife in the West.

IS wants to increase anti-Muslim sentiment to increase their recruitment.

IS wants you to believe that heavily screened refugees are a terrorist threat whereas in fact IS uses home-grown and born recruits in the countries.

IS wants you to ignore the fact that lightly screen tourists and students are much easier to "slip in" than refugees, so they don't use refugees.

Don't feed the bad wolf. Feed the good wolf. (Native American saying)

10. Sadly, we're already falling for it.

Open letter to governors (including the governor of my state) issuing anti-Syrian-refugee statements following the Paris attacks: The "terror" in "terrorism" stands for the confused, irrational cowardice the perpetrators hope to inspire in their audience (the same sort of cowardice, by the way, that led the US State Dept to restrict entrance to European Jewish refugees between 1941 and 1944: United States Policy Toward Jewish Refugees, 1941–1952). Your statements prove their success.

Clearly, bad guys will try to enter our country...and succeed; they will do so whether we turn our backs on those in need or not. Clearly, accepting refugees entails accepting some statistical risk...which is likely a rounding error in comparison to the statistical risk we face anyway. The risk entailed in helping victims of tragedy is why we tend to call those who do it heroes, and why we call those who refuse cowards.

Not that I expect it will make any difference, but I just contacted my state's governor about this just now. Twenty two other state governors have joined his position. If you live in one of these states, maybe consider letting your governor know what you think of him/her.

12. Posted on Facebook w/ this...

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

Very, very well done cartoon.

Proud to say my governor (Tom Wolf - PA) has not fallen for it.

18. They want us to stop talking about wage increases and health care an Social Security/Medicar and

give that war machine more money. I want to hear how all that spending doesn't seem to be helping at all, the elimination of our rights via the Patriot act, the 16 intelligence agencies. And when did what happens in France get to determine what happens in the U.S.A.?
