Below is a list of countries that take in the most refugees from Syria, according to CNN, which I think is a fairly reliable source of information. First I will give you a quote from CNN, then I will give my own thoughts. “A staggering share of them are children and teens: More than half are under age 17, according to U.N. figures.”
First I’d like to point out the nations that are absent from this list: Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait, who pride themselves on being conservative Sunni Muslims, who pride themselves on giving sanctuary to those in need, like Idi Amin, the Butcher of Uganda. Now let’s take a look at the European countries that have taken in so many Syrian refugees. Please note that Sweden and Germany have taken in tens of thousands, yet their countries have not been victims of any major terrorist attacks. Now look at France. My homeland was victimized by a number of terrorist attacks in 2016. Guess how many of the perpetrators of these acts were from Syria? The answer is zero. With the exception of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, most acts of terrorism that have occurred in the USA have been done by people from the USA who were militarized/brainwashed by Jihadist propaganda. Also, the majority of the people responsible for the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 were from our wonderful ally, Saudi Arabia. Was Saudi Arabia included in Trump’s executive order? No, of course not! Did his Executive Order make us safer as a country? No! Of course not!
Oh, and by the way, where did Timothy McVeigh come from? Trump is a demagogue, marginalizing people in order to score political points. To me this sounds vaguely familiar to Adolf Hitler. It amuses me that a recent poll said that 40% of the public think Trump should be impeached, up from 35% last week. The poll was conducted by the Center for Public Policy, hardly a left-wing stronghold. So all you people who voted for Trump, I hope you’re happy. You’ve put a psychopathic, narcissistic, misogynist in the White House. Good job!
Lebanon: 1.1 million.
United Kingdom: 7,000.
In closing, here is a link to an excellent article about Trump’s racist, divisive and ill-conceived executive order from the New York Times.
