Dear Editor,

Immigrants, Refugees, & Terrorists

In 1899 Winston Churchill was a young correspondent for the London Daily Mail stationed in the Middle East. He wrote the following for posterity. Churchill was a racist only in that he understood the distinctions between races, not a bigot who blindly feels that one is superior to another just because of color.
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedamism lays on its votaries! Beside the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobic in a dog, there is a fearful, fatalistic apathy.
The effects are apparent in many countries: Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives the life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as wife, slave, child, or concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in this world.
It has already spread through central Africa... and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it has vainly struggled - the civilization of modern Europe might fall as fell that of the Romans.”
TODAY, the issue is not modern Europe but our own U.S.A. The president’s recently stalled executive order barring immigrants from seven Muslim nations that seem incubators for terrorists was quite valid. The ultra-liberal judiciary in California (where else?) subverted the president’s legitimate aim to protect America. That is his job - not governing by popularity polls.
Most Muslims are not terrorists. Almost all of the terrorists Americans and Europeans have suffered from in the recent years are Muslim: home-grown or immigrant. Do the math. To open our borders wide open to everyone who says he is escaping war, violence at home, etc. would reduce America to being a place instead of a nation.
The fact is plain to see in Europe today. The Muslim “refugees” do not stop upon reaching Greece, Turkey, Slovenia, etc. They want to go to France, Germany, and England where the welfare benefits are highest. They come mainly for financial advancement, not prosecution. And most do not assimilate. They have no wish to become French, German, American, or English and usually do not adopt any type of western value system. [Three years ago a Muslim immigrant taxi driver in Dallas murdered his two teenage daughters because they wanted to date boys. He is still at large].
With the inherent dysfunction of Islamic governments, flawed economies, and bursting birth rates (Iraq’s population has tripled within the past 30 years), the easiest escape path is to go to Europe, go to America, go to Canada, etc. The “refugees” do not go to other Muslim nations that are closer. German Chancellor Merkel has learned the hard way: they go where the money is, and as long as it is given, they will come.
