WHAT: World Refugee Day 2016 – “Rally for Refugee Re-Settlement”
“Refugees Welcome Because One World ♥’s “
Location: Columbus Circle – NYC – June 19, 2016- 11 am
Event Name: Rally for Refugees
Organization: Church World Services “A Global Humanitarian Agency for The Vulnerable and the Displaced” [CWS is the relief, development and refugee assistance arm of the National Council of the Churches of Christ]
“This June, dozens of communities across the United States gathered to celebrate (Muslim) refugees from California to Atlanta”
WHY: From UNHCR & the UN Refugee Agency
“In 2000, the United Nations General Assembly established June 20 as World Refugee Day to recognize and applaud the contribution of refugees throughout the world and to raise awareness about the growing refugee crisis …. celebrate World Refugee Day with an event, prayer service, or other activity.”
CWS asks you to Join the Refugees Welcome Campaign
#WithRefugees petition will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit to address large movements of (Muslim)refugees and migrants, on September 19, 2016.
The petition asks governments to help the (Muslim) refugees :
- Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
- Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
- Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.
Statement by the President Obama on World Refugee Day (2016)
“Protecting and assisting refugees is a part of our history as a Nation and we will continue to alleviate the suffering of (Muslim) refugees abroad, and to welcome them here at home, because doing so reflects our American values and our noblest traditions as a Nation, enriches our society and strengthens our collective security.”
HOWEVER: Mercy. Compassion … Do unto others …. Western values. Anathema to Islam (it’s in the Quran)
“The Infidels must Die!”
“The Christian population in Iraq has now diminished to an alarming 50,000 to 250,000, compared with 1.4 million in 2003. They were either massacred by jihadists or abducted.
Christians have faced being forced to convert to Islam, pay a high living tax (jizya, mandated in the Qur’an) to the Islamic State, or abandon their ancestral homes. Many were enslaved or murdered.
Reverend Canon Andrew White, (aka “The Vicar of Baghdad”) known for his love of humanity, stated of Islamic State jihadists: “When I invited ISIL to dinner they said, ‘Yes, we’ll come, but we’ll chop off your head.’ Rather kind of them to warn me.”
The gentle and kind Reverend White … has witnessed the worst atrocities on the ground against his fellow Christians, minorities and Yazidi girls who are taken as sex slaves, and he finally declared:”
“I have looked through the Quran trying to find forgiveness… there isn’t any. If you find it, tell me. This makes it very difficult to talk to ISIS because they can show you quite clearly that it is what Allah wants. They can justify their position when Allah says you should combat and fight the infidel and they say, ‘Well, these are infidels.’ So the question is, how can you prove that these are not infidels? And you can’t.” [Jihad Watch]
YET, the misguided do-gooders at CWS preach-on ….
Overheard at Columbus Circle, a mother telling her young daughter (simplistically) that the purpose of the CWS event was to teach us “to be kind to all people”. So… “Rebecca, Stands With Refugees”
The mother sees what she wants to see, the Happy (feel-good) Faces of dedicated (misguided) do-gooders: It’s World Refugee Day!
But, how kind is ignoring the Christian refugees while Muslim ‘refugees’ go to the head-of-the-line.
I watched. Took a few pictures. Knowing a dialogue about the Christian victims of Islam would be met with plastic smiles …. and silence…
But, one brave voice stood firmly in front of them- facing their table. His message perplexing for the do-gooder, as it does not compute, “Say NO to Refugees”
A message lacking nuance, perhaps, but they should have opened a door and talked with him. Instead, CWS holds firm. CWS is GOOD. Bringing Social Justice to the Muslim World.
That protestor is a BAD man. A Racist. Islamophobe. Bigoted. Hater. Ignore him. (hands to ears- lalalala)
CWS (CHRISTIAN World Service) outreach goes first to Muslim “refugees” of Syria. To save them from “Islamophobia” .
That “One World – Social Justice” from CWS offers kindness, empathy, Social Justice. (to some) The Christian Victims of Genocide must go to the back-of-the-line.
Protecting Muslim refugees comes FIRST because Muslims are “threatened by imagined Islamophobia”
Within the United States, the welcome of (Muslim) Syrian refugees is being challenged. This type of fear-mongering (against Muslims) has no place in our society. People of all faiths must stand in solidarity with refugee and migrant communities.
BUT, are the “important and very needy” Muslim “refugees” properly vetted? (If at all). CWS claims they are.
More from CWS as they Welcome the (Muslim) Syrian “Refugees”
IN CWS‘ OWN WORDS:
‘Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.’
– Hebrews 13:2 (NRSV)
Join CWS in refugee resettlement – welcome arriving families as contributing members of our communities….
Take a collection to help Syrian refugee families cover basic expenses.
CWS will connect these funds with arriving Syrian families for housing, utilities and basic needs as well as CWS Syrian crisis advocacy.
Refugees often arrive with little more possessions than the clothing on their backs.
Collect the household goods one family will need to start a new life in the U.S.
Ship boxed items to a city across the U.S. … household items will be provided to arriving refugees from Syria, Burma, Iraq and other countries.

Sadly, CWS with holds aide to the Christians of the Middle East (and Yazidis, as well) slaughtered and enslaved throughout the 21st Century Muslim World. It’s a puzzlement…
Which brings us to a WARNING From Refugee Resettlement Watch on Church World Services and Federal Funding. [Posted by Ann Corcoran January 7, 2016]
CHRISTIANS BEWARE of the Social Justice Do-Gooders
If you are new to RRW, there are nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors (they call themselves Volags!) and Church World Service is one of them.
They are largely funded with your tax dollars! And, it was Church World Service whose subcontractor Virginia Council of Churches first brought this whole secretive and costly resettlement program to my attention in 2007.
See my latest report on CWS at American Resistance 2016! where we tell you about how CWS is going to illegally hide aliens sought by ICE.
Don’t you think that, if they go forward with their announced plan and break federal law, their federal funds should be immediately cut off?
By the way, if the name Church World Service rings a bell for you locally. Know that they might be raising funds from your church through their annual “Crop Walks!”
Their charitable work for hungry people is, in my view, just a cover for their political ambitions.
Church World Service member churches are here. Be sure your church isn’t planning to hide those sought by ICE.
(Also, from Refugee Resettlement Watch)
” Frankly, we have made a grievous error in taking the Muslim refugees, Somalis in particular, who have no intention of becoming Americans. They are here to change America.
Unfortunately, political correctness and a worshipful attitude toward multiculturalism have blinded us.
It is my view, that the ‘diversity is strength’ line is way overused, and mostly hogwash.”
PDF – 2016 a Report on the Christian Genocide [You can scroll through the embedded (detailed) PDF below ]
“Shouldn’t we first help the Christian victims of Mideast genocide? If we want to accept refugees in flight from Arab and Muslim war zones, why not start with the most persecuted victims?”
Why not bring Christians and Yazidis from the Muslim world here first? Why not bring Muslim dissidents, ex-Muslims, and Muslim homosexuals here second?
— before we extend visas, green cards and asylum to Muslim boys and men? [Phyllis Chesler]
IN CONCLUSION: The misguided fools and tools at CWS need an awakening, before it’s too late for the Christian Refugees of The Middle East. These hapless do-gooders should ask more probing questions of CWS. “Are we doing enough to help the Christian victims suffering under the boot of terrorism?” A pretty smile to passersby is not enough.

PART TWO: Impassioned voices from THE CHRISTIAN REFUGEES of the Middle East, the Yazidis of Iraq , who need re-settlement. Lost in the wilderness, they desperately need JUSTICE. NOW.

Video 5- Simon Deng, enslaved at the age of 9 in Sudan. Christian slavery, in the 21st century, continues- sanctioned by Islam and ignored- in the Sudan. Genocide. Slavery. It’s a world wide scourge.
** An Addendum** As I try to end this post. ** I find. I can’t.**
The reports. The abuses. The cruelty. The Human Tragedies. The pleas for aide and mercy – Silence has lead to No JUSTICE. No Peace.
The horrors do not end. The pain goes on.

“Horrifying mob of 5,000 attacks Christians for BUILDING CHURCH shouting ‘Egypt is Islamic,’” by Katie Mansfield, Express, July 2, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A MOB of 5,000 attacked a group of Christians as they attempted to build a church, the latest in a string of violent attacks in Egypt.
Vigilantes torched and looted homes in Baidaa village after hearing rumours worship was taking place. [ Interfaith dialogue in Egypt ]
While Church leaders in the U.S. are too busy holding Ramadan dinners and issuing statements about how Islam is “peace” to take much notice of how Christians in the Middle East are being persecuted. Shame on them!
