Do Refugees Have Responsibilities?

Nobody seems to be asking if refugees themselves have responsibilities to their host country. When people are running for their lives and are welcomed with open arms (as in Germany and Sweden), many are grateful and will eagerly integrate into their new homes. But there are many who will not.

Notice that reporters covering this stressful refugee flood pick and choose whom to interview. On 60 Minutes, I saw interviews with young men who spoke English, one of whom (a teen) had a mouthful of braces, something only possible for families with money. There was also an interview with a Syrian doctor who was working as a laborer, trying to get enough money together to bring his family. Laudable.

However, some distressing reports are slipping out of Europe (reports that the majority of European press does not print because it is deemed prejudiced). One woman doctor in a German hospital reported that Muslim refugee men are violent toward the female personnel and they demand that only women doctors treat their wives. She has also reported that many of these refugees have diseases rarely seen in Europe today: venereal and contagious.

Small towns in Germany that have provided refuge to Muslims are greeted with Muslim uproars because Halal food (animals slaughtered with Muslim ritual) is not available and they are very indignant when Germans hold their annual Octoberfest where beer and pork sausages are served.

Refugee camps are reporting what the officials call "intra-sect" conflicts (meaning Sunni and Shia?), but have not reported the rapes and persecution of non-Muslim refugees.

As reported many times before, Sweden is beset with a flood of rapes of Swedish women (we certainly never hear about rapes of refugee women, not by Swedes, but by Somali Muslim men). The press is never permitted to identify the rapists as almost entirely refugees or second generation Somalis. Apparently women are not considered important enough to protect.

The Saudis, rich as they are and with thousands of tents used for the annual Hajj (badly managed this year) have declined to loan them to the European countries taking in these hordes of refugees. Instead, they are offering money for mosques, exactly what Europe does not need!

Turks, many three generations in Europe, voted overwhelmingly in the recent Turkish election for Islamist and dictatorial President Erdugan. So much for their love of democracy.

Inmates in prison are finally leaking that they are being threatened by Muslim inmates and compelled to convert. They are afraid. Even prison cooks are reluctant to cook pork products lest they be beaten by outraged Muslim inmates. This news contradicts the propaganda that Islam is having success in converting fellow prisoners by persuasion and example.

Unfortunately, much of the worst behavior is promoted by the very religious text (the Koran) that the pious revere. Here are just five Koranic admonitions that the world is seeing carried out daily by pious Islamists:

Quran (8:55) - Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve.

Quran (48:29) - Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves.

Quran (9:30) - And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah... Allah (Himself) fights against them. How perverse are they!

Quran (8:12) - I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.

Quran (5:33) - The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.

These are not values that should be permitted to take further hold in Europe. "True believers" are a danger to civilized society and should be sent back.
