I'm what's considered to be a 1.5 generation Canadian. Why is that relevant? Well, my grandparents immigrated to Canada under refugee status after WW2. Nothing particularly odd about that, I know. However, what makes in interesting is that my Opa was part of General Rommel's Afrika Korps. Sure, he was conscripted and he was merely a field doctor, but he still had the Nazi stigma attached to his name. And yet, even after WW2 ended, he and the rest of his family still managed to gain refugee status here in Canada. He wasn't antisemite (as far as I have been able to gather, at least lol), but he was still an evil German Nazi in the eyes of the general public.

I bring this up because, well, part of the whole acceptance of taking in refugees is believing that people who need help deserve what we can give. It's a chance of having a better life, away from persecution or illegal prosecution.

I'm half asleep, but I know my point is made in there somewhere. Might just have to read between the lines more than usual. lol

I must have missed the part where there's no plan to actually do regular refugee screening on these Syrians. I mean, people keep going on as if they're just all going to be allowed to step off the plane and disappear into the fabric of the country, but I've never seen a statement from the government that it's actually going to be that easy. Sounds like a bunch more paranoid fearmongering to me.

Maybe... or maybe they're just all reactionary like so many people over here. Main difference, of course, is that refugees have been streaming in by land with little to stop them until recently. There's a few thousand miles of water stopping that from happening here.

As far as I've heard, these bombers were not among the Syrian refugees, so "French intel screening these folk" really isn't relevant. I recall hearing (I'll try to find a link) that one of them that was killed was identified and his movements tracked, and he bounced around a few different places on route to Paris, and the only connection to the refugees was that he'd stopped off for a day or two in a refugee camp before moving along on his own.

Here's a bit:
Paris terror suspects: Everything we know about the Isil attackers so far - Telegraph

"At least one of the suicide bombers was a French citizen called Omar Ismail Mostefai, who was known to security services... who lived in Chartres, south west of Paris."

"AFP reported this morning that Mostefai was born on November 21 1985 in the poor Paris suburb of Courcouronnes."

BORN IN FRANCE. NOT AN IMMIGRANT, NOT A REFUGEE.

"French police have put out a request for witnesses in search of Belgium-born Abdeslam Saleh, calling him dangerous."

Also NOT A REFUGEE.

"Bilal Hadfi has been named in the media as one of the terrorists who attacked the Stade de France. He reportedly fought with Isil in Syria and lived in Belgium prior to the attacks."

Traveling from Belgium to France is almost as easy as traveling from BC to Alberta, so what kind of immigration/refugee screening would have stopped him?

"Likewise, in August, a Frenchman arrested on his return from Syria after a short stay in Raqqa mentioned instructions from Isil to target a concert hall."

Again, NOT A REFUGEE, but another French citizen attacking his own homeland.

"In September, three Americans foiled a gun attack by Ayoub El-Khazzani, a Moroccan jihadist, on a Paris-bound Thalys train he boarded in Brussels."

Not a refugee, not an immigrant, not a Syrian... just someone who hopped on a train like any other tourist.

Edit: Or don't. Start letting Brazilians in indiscriminately, and those little gang wars in Surrey will look like kids playing cops and robbers.

That's the real risk.
Are you really trying to compare Brazil with Syria?

Yes. UN says that around 200k have been killed in the last 4 years in Syria. Brazil has an average of 70k murders per year. Brazil has had roughly one million homicides from 1984-2014. That's, like, more deaths than Iraq War I + II. Or twice the number of US casualties in WWII.

Although we're not in a declared state of war, we have bombings, mass assassinations where a guy with a gun will walk into a bar and shoot 40 people, and general lawlessness.

Can we just call a spade a spade and say yes, we actually don't give a fuck about the killings In these other countries which happen on a "daily" basis compared to a western "safe" nation like France?

Honestly, in places like Lebanon, in the last 20 years there have been more years of terror and violence than not. Places where home grown terror runs rampant and outside forces come and go, truly, I don't care.

Passport Found Next To Paris Suicide Bomber Belongs To Syrian "Political Refugee" Who Entered Greece | Zero Hedge
The passport was recorded by Greek officials on Oct. 3, Greek Deputy Citizen Protection Minister Nikos Toskas said on a statement posted on the ministry’s website Saturday. Toskas said he didn’t know whether the passport was later processed by other authorities elsewhere in Europe.

The full statement, google translated:

Statement by the Deputy Minister of Citizen Protection Nikos Tosca on terrorist attacks in Paris



The Deputy Minister of Citizen Protection Nikos Toskas announces the following:



"On the case of the Syrian passport found at the scene of the terrorist attack.



We announce that the passport holder, had passed from Leros on 03.10.2015 where identified based on EU rules, as decided at the Summit on the refugee issue.



We do not know if the passport was checked by other countries which are likely to be passed by the holder.



We will continue the painstaking and persistent effort under difficult circumstances to ensure the security of our country and Europe, insisting on complete identification of passing through the refugee stream.

I guess you are right there all the attacks are not carry out by Syrian refugee. I am so so so so sorry we got incorrect info. And that 0 terrorist have disguise themselves as refugee. Everyone who claims they are a Syrian refugee is indeed one and none will pose any security thread to anyone.

I would question any sources claiming that any of these terrorists were refugees... So you have two shitty tabloids, a personal blog, and zero hedge, which is basically The Onion to anyone who isn't a conspiracy nutcase crackpot

They may have been, but I'd want more solid sources than these...

I'll play devils advocate and say that singular members of the Nazi's, even if they were the worst of the worst had very little risk as a singular entity coming into Canada.

Hell, even in occupied areas during WW2 without well orchestrated orders and guidance, the nazi occupation virtually crumbled and that was with hundreds to thousands of German soldiers. So to say bringing in one, ten, or even a hundred nazi's to Canada, in the big picture probably posed little to no risk to the general populous.

On the other hand, you bring in 25k Syrians, and have 10 that share extremist views. That could end in devastating consequences.

Like I said earlier, this is a completely different, unseen, set of circumstances.

The ISIS ‘Refugee’ Journey to Terror in Paris - ABC News

Quote:
Paris Bomber Sneaked in With Refugees, Officials Say
By BRIAN ROSS DRAGANA JOVANOVIC Nov 15, 2015, 6:36 PM ET

The route from Turkey across the Mediterranean and into Europe has been a perilous one for thousands of refugees fleeing the violence in Syria, but European authorities say one terrorist hidden among the innocents on a packed Greece-bound boat in early October was determined to bring the bloodshed with him -- all the way to Paris.

A slideshow presentation created by the Greek government says the man, who was identified as Ahmad Almohammad on identification documents but could have used an alias, was recorded coming into the Greek island of Leros on Oct. 3. He arrived on a boat with 197 other people from Turkey.

He had his photo taken and was fingerprinted, in accordance with Greek immigration policy, and shipped to mainland Greece. European officials say from there the man calling himself Almohammad made his way through Serbia on Oct. 7 and then Croatia on Oct. 8. From there he went on through Hungary and Austria, according to European officials.

From there, however, the trail goes cold. The slideshow presentation shows the possible routes the man could’ve taken to his final destination, but in various possible border crossings, it notes that his transit was not recorded.

Just over a month later, French and Greek authorities say, the man emerges outside a crowded soccer stadium in Paris where he, after reportedly having been denied entry by security guards, detonated the suicide vest, killing himself and a bystander. His Syrian passport somehow survived the explosion, giving police one of their first clues in what would become one of the most horrific terrorist attacks in history.

According to French police officials, his bombing was the first in a string of shootings and bombings that would claim more than 120 lives in Paris that night, and injure more than 350 others.

Early Saturday the Syria-based terror group ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was the first in a coming “storm.”
CNN has it too

Quote:
'Ahmad al Muhammad' (false name)
Status: Dead

Residence: Unknown; immigrated with Syrian refugees

Suspected of: Stadium suicide bomber (Stade de France)

One of three bombers who detonated themselves at the Stade de France late Friday arrived on the Greek island of Leros on October 3 among numerous Syrian refugees, CNN's Christiane Amanpour reported, citing an unnamed French senator who was briefed by the Ministry of the Interior.

Suicide bomber smuggled in with refugees 06:11

This man held an emergency passport or similar document and falsely declared himself to be a Syrian named Ahmad al Muhammad, born on September 10, 1990, the senator said. The man was allowed to enter Greece on October 3 and, from there, moved to Macedonia, then Serbia and Croatia, where he registered in the Opatovac refugee camp, the lawmaker said.

Eventually, he made his way to Paris, where he was one of three men who blew themselves up at the Stade de France.

Thank you to people who still have some common sense. Soundy and Westopher, who actually spend the time to try to educate people. If not for people like you, I probably wouldn't even be allowed to live here. I immigrated to Canada at a very young age and I'm very lucky my parents were able to bring my family here. Not, I'm not Muslin, but if everyone thought the way that a SURPRISINGLY LARGE percentage of people here do (NOT just the forum, but I read the comments on Global News' FB Page), then the immigration laws would be so fucked up that I wouldn't have even had a fucking chance.

People WAKE THE FUCK UP. What does a Syrian refugee have ANYTHING to do with some fucking retards bombing and shooting up Paris?!?! Why are you less likely to let in refugees AFTER the attack as opposed to BEFORE? Are you telling me that 25,000 people suddenly became a terrorist threat because somewhere 1000s of miles away, a handful of retards decided to plot an attack? Terrorists are going to find a way to fuck shit up regardless Canada accepts refugees or not.

While I agree there are obvious precautions that need to be taken to protect our country, being a full out racist is only going to make the problem worse. How would you feel if all of a sudden, your religion of ethnicity got labelled as terrorist? Why don't you put yourself in the shoes of these people and just think for a fucking second.. How would you go about your life? How do you clear your name? Do you just go ahead and end your life? If anything, reading all this shit would just make me so fucking furious.

There is so much that we don't know about this World and how it is truly run, I find it insane how people can make such radical comments.. Mind is absolutely fucking blown. I hope that these people, wherever they are from, and whatever religion they choose to follow, find peace and harmony. I can't even imagine what sort of bullshit they have experienced in the last 5 years or so.

^Safe as in, are you going to suddenly die while buying some fruit.

I know nothing about Brazil's state, nor do I have any facts, but maybe a large number of the 70,000 murders are all gang related, or something?

In that case, yes, it would be safer than Syria.

I agree with the Saskatchewan premier on a suspension of the entry of Syrian refugees into Canada.

Trudeau and the Liberals need to make sure that very detailed background checks are done on every Syrian that is applying for refugee status. Sharing of information between Canada and other countries is vital to ensure we don't get any people who have plans to kill Canadians in the name of "Allah".

I realize that no screening system is 100% full proof. However, I think the smart thing, and the right thing, for the Liberal government to do, is to step back, look at our current screening system for refugees just to make sure there are the highest possible security standards are applied for each and every screening of a person. If it means a temporary suspension of refugee admission into our country in order for this kind of work to be done, then so be it.

Is the Brazilian government systematically prosecuting its own people? This is what the Syrian government has done in order to consolidate power. The Syrian government has also been powerless in stopping the persecution of its citizens outside of the areas under its control.

Death as a result of criminal activity is one thing, but persecution from your own government is another. A government is in the business of providing security to its own citizens. If a government cannot do this, then a person is free to seek security elsewhere. This is what the international community has recognized since WWII.

Agree. What's with this date driven policy of bringing in 25000 refugees before the end of the year? Proper and adequate screening cannot be done if things get pushed through before the end of the year.

The fact that I can stay at a 5 star resort, relax on the beach drinking a cold beer and check or new posts on RS makes it a lot safer than Syria.

uhh, no man.. a lot of people are against it.. lol

Screening won't do shit in a situation like this.. I don't even think Canada has any sort of data sharing agreements with Syria...

I mean I'm pretty sure these guys wont just board a ship, land in Canada, and just go do whatever they fuck they want.. There will be some sort of procedure... Hopefully...
Hard to judge until we get more information on what exactly is going to happen.

I can appreciate that view for sure, but I promise lots of people are against bringing in refugees from war torn places as soon as the M word (muslim) is used. I'd rather bring in the refugees and do it properly over a longer period of time if thats what it takes, but you have to admit a lot of the way people in here or various other forms of social media have been speaking about it, it is clear people think none should be allowed in under any circumstances, and their views and rants contain absolutely insane amounts of racism and anti muslim sentiments.
As usual, people are on both extremes, and the answer lies somewhere within the middle.
I still believe we need to thoroughly do our best to bring in as many refugees as reasonably possible, in an accelerated as possible time. These people's lives that are affected by this conflict are just as important as ours.
