Letter to the Editor: Protecting America

The primary job of the president is to protect America. Is President Barack Obama doing so?

Today, there is a global war being waged by Islamic terrorists, with America their main target. In spite of that, Obama has allowed thousands of Muslim refugees, students and visitors into the United States. Many of these Muslims were sent by the United Nations, with the approval of charity and religious groups.

Even after the Paris attacks by ISIS, Obama wants to flood our country with “so-called” Syrians. His motives are political, not humanitarian, and America will be put in greater danger as a result.

According to the American Thinker, there are several reasons why we should not admit Muslim refugees.

1. They are not refugees, but invaders. (Hijra) They want to increase the Muslim population, overwhelm and change our culture.

2. The majority of Muslims flooding the West are young men.

3. They can’t be vetted. (No databases, forged papers, passports)

4. Islam is incompatible with Western civilization.

5. Terrorists will be among the refugees.

6. Many refugees will morph into jihadists.

7. Number of refugees will increase. Over 200,000 are estimated in three years, and they will petition for family members to come.

8. They support sharia law. Half of American Muslims want sharia law. (Center for Security Policy)

9. Muslims won’t assimilate. (Form own enclaves + reject Western values)

10. The number of mosques and Islamic schools will increase. Over 80 percent of U.S. mosques teach jihad + sharia law. (David Yerushalmic, sharia expert, plus two other studies)

11. Spread disease like TB, syphilis, cholera, typhoid and others. (Many are not inoculated against diseases.)

12. Taxpayers will foot the bill. (food, school, shelter, child care and interpreters)

America, it is time to face reality. We must get informed about Islam, recognize we are at war, be alert to dangers around us, and demand that President Obama and our politicians protect America.

If they don’t, force them to quit. The threat of radical Islam is greater than ever before.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
