Canada: Muslims Reject Music Class for the Kiddies

So many elements of western culture are verboten to Muslim sensibilities that one wonders why they come here at all. Is the opportunity to convert infidels to Islam in the act of hijrah so important to newbie immigrants? Perhaps.

Music instruction, including band rehearsal, is a welcome change from the books for many students, plus it develops a different kind of brain usage.

Not that Muslims care about such things, but plenty of research like a recent USC study has found that Children’s brains develop faster with music training.

Music instruction appears to accelerate brain development in young children, particularly in the areas of the brain responsible for processing sound, language development, speech perception and reading skills, according to initial results of a five-year study by USC neuroscientists.

But intelligence has never ranked high among Islamic values, as shown by the common practice of purposeful inbreeding — 70 percent of Pakistanis, 45 percent of Arabs and at least 30 percent of Turks are from first cousin-marriages. That behavior brings down IQs, typified by 84 in both Saudi and Iran.

The anti-social attitude of rejecting any outside influence has resulted in fortress Islam, incapable of stepping out of its backward eighth-century beliefs.

The Muslim rejection of music in western schools is not new — Islamo-parents pulled their kids out of London music classes in 2010. The last thing Islam immigrants want is for the kids to assimilate — they regard it as sinful! — rather than be a part of separatist Islamic communities residing in Europe and America.

Furthermore, why would westerners want immigrants who hate music? Every culture has music except Islam, so Muslims are oddly unnatural in this regard.

Mandatory music classes hit a bad note with some Muslim parents, The Globe and Mail, September 5, 2016

When music class begins this week at Toronto’s Donwood Park elementary school, Mohammad Nouman Dasu will send a family member to collect his three young children. They will go home for an hour rather than sing and play instruments – a mandatory part of the Ontario curriculum he believes violates his Muslim faith.

The Scarborough school and the Toronto District School Board originally had offered an accommodation – suggesting students could just clap their hands in place of playing instruments or listen to acapella versions of O Canada – but not a full exemption from the class.

After a bitter three-year fight, however, Mr. Dasu felt he had no other opton but to bring his kids home.

According to documents obtained by The Globe and Mail, some parents insist they cannot allow their children to be in the same room where musical instruments are being played. Mr. Dasu, a Koran teacher who sometimes leads prayers at Scarborough’s Jame Abu Bakr Siddique mosque, says he has led the fight on behalf of parents. He has consulted with national Islamic bodies, and requested a letter from the leader of his mosque.

Labor Day 2016: More Automation, More Foreign Workers, Fewer Jobs for Americans

Labor Day is becoming a time of dismal reflection as automation technology continues its incursion into new places in the jobs economy. For example, self-driving taxis were rolled out for public testing in Singapore and Pittsburgh in August. A robot security guard was sighted in a San Francisco parking lot earlier in the summer. In California, the new $15 minimum wage has pushed fast food restaurants to replace counter workers with ordering kiosks.

It was reported a few days ago that Walmart is cutting hundreds of accounting and invoicing jobs, which sounds like a software upgrade or consolidation, as well as adding “cash recyler” machines for counting up the cash.

Of course, news outlets rarely report when an inexpensive robot is introduced in a small business and workers are quietly let go. The good news of outsourced jobs being returned the US is diminished by fewer workers being needed in the automated workplaces. The jobs economy faces the death of a thousand cuts.

Generac Power Systems, which shifted some of its work from abroad, can now make an alternator with one worker in the time it took four workers in China. Above, an employee at its Whitewater, Wis., plant.

Nevertheless, productivity is up. Rice University’s Professor Moshe Vardi observed, “U.S. factories are not disappearing: They simply aren’t employing human workers.” He further noted that manufacturing employment has been falling for more than 30 years, and yet U.S. manufacturing output is near its all-time high.

The pain being felt across working America is real: Pew Research reported last year that America is no longer majority middle class.

Another dreary measure: the August report of labor force participation showed 94,391,000 Americans not in the work force, unchanged from July’s 62.8 percent.

In addition, the technology revolution in the workplace follows decades of outsourcing of millions of manufacturing jobs and excessive immigration to lower wages on remaining US employment.

Meanwhile, the borders are wide open on all fronts. Central Americans flood in because Obama welcomes them by recategorizing them as “refugees” who get free stuff immediately. The president also greased the skids for dangerous, unscreenable Syrians, 10,000 of whom were speed-processed, and he promised that number is “a floor, not a ceiling” of Muslims (not persecuted Christians) being imported as refugees. Some of these new residents will want jobs and they will compete against low-skilled citizens who are hard-pressed by the current employment situation.

The automation forecasts are sobering.  In 2013, an Oxford University study was published that concluded nearly half of US employment is at risk of being replaced by smart machines within 20 years. The Gartner tech consultants predicted in 2014 that one-third of jobs will be replaced by automation and software by 2025. Why are there no Congressional hearings investigating this threat to the economy?

Given the changing nature of the workplace, it makes no sense to continue immigrating foreigners who are unemployable now and less so in the future. In fact,

Automation makes immigration obsolete.

Here is another take on automation on Labor Day:

The future of automation and your job, by Wayne T. Price, Florida Today, September 3, 2016

Imagine it’s 2030, and it’s nearing time to eat dinner.

You text a grocery store where your order is taken for a pound of ground beef, a box of Hamburger Helper and maybe some lettuce and tomatoes for a salad. Possibly you want to fancy it up with a bottle of cabernet. The beef was butchered and packaged by a machine. Robots picked and processed the grapes, which where then bottled and shipped to a market by automation.

A driverless car, or possibly a drone aircraft, delivers the goods to your front door. You never see a person from the text-to-your-doorstep process.

There are maybe four or five jobs currently associated with that scene: From the grocery store clerk, to the produce person to the butcher who packaged the beef and the winery were the grapes were picked.

All those jobs could vanish in the years ahead as technology moves at lightening speed to make our lives easier. It’s hard to imagine one area, maybe motherhood excepted, where humans couldn’t be replaced by automation or at least significantly affected by technologies.

According to the latest employment stats from Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity, Brevard had 202,400 (not seasonably adjusted) jobs in July. Most of those jobs were concentrated in areas like “good producing,” which includes manufacturing and assembly; services, such as retail, and also leisure and hospitality.

“I’d say almost all jobs are in some jeopardy, including many white-collar positions that were previously sheltered from automation,” said Scott Tilley, a professor in the Department of Engineering Systems at the Florida Institute of Technology and president of the Big Data Florida user group.

“On the hardware side, robots are becoming increasingly adept at mimicking human movement,” Tilley said. “This means they can interact with people much easier than before. On the software side, artificial intelligence – coupled with big data analytics and cloud computing – are making programs and the robots that use the AI software much ‘smarter’ in the sense that they can act autonomously. These programs will only get better — and it won’t take eons for them to evolve like we did.” Continue reading this article

Prisons Provide Captive Audiences for Jihad Recruiters

Britain is beginning to understand the prisons supply easily drafted foot-soldiers for Islam: prisoners may like the message that their violent urges can be rechanneled into fighting for allah and in that case the blood-letting is noble according to the jihad code. Richard Reid, the shoe bomber, is one example of prison conversion.

Islam prison ministries are a problem in the United States also, as shown by the case of Alton Nolen, the loser convict who converted to Islam in prison and went on to behead a 54-year-old woman in the Oklahoma business that had fired him. He had been pestering co-workers to convert to Islam, and according to the Koran, Muslims are entitled to kill infidels if they refuse the invitation. That was Osama bin Laden’s excuse: he had invited America to come to allah, and when we refused, he felt authorized to murder thousands on 9/11.

Alton Nolen, below, beheaded Colleen Hufford as a result of his prison conversion to Islam.

The UK has learned that jihad recruiters need to be isolated from the general population in prisons — has the US figured that out that simple trick to prevent Islamization?

DOUG McKELWAY: Officials in England are joining counterparts in other European countries and taking radical Islamic prisoners out of the ranks of the general prison population in many facilities. It all has to do with radicalization, and it is a problem in this country as well. Correspondent Benjamin Hall explains tonight from London.

BENJAMIN HALL: Prisons in the UK have been called jihadi training camps as new government research shows the extent of Islamic radicalization. In terror attack after terror attack across Europe, one thing has been constant: many of the attackers were radicalized behind bars. They went in as petty criminals they came out as terrorists. One reformed jihadi explain why prison is such a target for radical Muslims.

ADAM DEEN: What makes a good recruit is someone that is already disenfranchised, someone who is anti-establishment, who holds holds some kind of resentment.

HALL: Easy pickings for radical Muslim preachers like Anjem Choudary, one of the most notorious hate preachers in Britain, who was recently sentenced to 10 years for supporting ISIS. Now the UK government is introducing new laws which will keep people like Choudary away from other inmates. Continue reading this article

Trump Meets with Crime Victim Mom in Philadelphia

Donald Trump continues to impress with his unwavering attention to crime victims of illegal aliens. On Friday, he met with Shalga Hightower, the mother of Iofemi, who was murdered by an illegal alien and other hispanics in a barbaric gang attack.

In 2007, four school friends were hanging out and listening to music in a schoolyard in Newark, and three were hacked by machetes and shot to death by a gang of hispanics. One of the attackers, Jose Carranza, was an illegal alien Peruvian out on bail (!) after being arrested for repeatedly raping a 5-year-old girl. Newark is a sanctuary city.

All of the four were enrolled or about to enroll at Delaware State University. All except Iofemi were musicians in their high school marching bands.

Below, Donald Trump met with Shalga Hightower on Friday.

Trump, pushing immigration plan, meets with family of woman killed in 2007, Reuters, September 2, 2016

Donald Trump sought to sell Americans on his tough approach to immigration on Friday, meeting in Philadelphia with the family of a woman who was killed in a 2007 shooting that involved people who came to the United States illegally.

Trump this week unveiled a hardline immigration plan that emphasized deporting illegal immigrants who commit crimes. His plan was cheered by other immigration critics, but some Hispanic backers and moderate Republicans felt it lacked compassion toward millions of people in the United States illegally.

Trump often points to examples of people hurt by illegal immigrants to defend his tough positions, which include building a wall at the border with Mexico, though some studies have found immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes.

On Friday, he met with the family of Iofemi Hightower, who was 20 years old when she and two others were killed in a schoolyard in Newark, New Jersey. Continue reading this article

Robot Security Guards May Replace Human Workers

Many news reports about robots and automation are stuck on the cool technology aspect, but the one below from la Times includes the likely disemployment effect near the end of the article.

The Knightscope company’s security guard robot is designed to prowl spaces like parking garages and suck up any loose data along with performing its safety function.

The cost of these machines is cheap — only $7 per hour rental with no extra employer payments for FICA and Social Security. The money quote: “robots could be a big cost savings to their clients — and may replace many human guards.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics listed Security Guard in May 2015 as employing 1,097,660 humans. Security guard is a job that doesn’t require much of an education to get, but it looks like it may be on the way out because of smart machines.

Technology experts say the automation threat to jobs will only worsen. The Gartner consulting firm forecast in 2014 that one-third of US jobs will be performed by robots by 2015. In 2013, an Oxford University study (“The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?”) was published that concluded nearly half of US employment is at risk of being replaced by smart machines.

With that automated future in mind, isn’t the policy of continuing to import millions of low-skilled immigrants very unwise? A more appropriate number for immigrants would be ZERO, because…

Automation makes immigration obsolete.

Robots are becoming security guards. ‘Once it gets arms … it’ll replace all of us’, Los Angeles Times, September 2, 2016

William Santana Li imagines a future where robots will keep Americans safe.

Communities, he dreams, will take security into their own hands by investing in wheeled machines that patrol streets, sidewalks and schools — instantly alerting residents via a mobile app of intruders or criminal behavior.

“What if we could crowd-source security?” said Li, co-founder and chief executive of a robotics company, Knightscope, that hopes to eventually do just that.

His question is like many posed by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs seeking to modernize, privatize and monetize services once entrusted to the government — and it’s one that has intrigued venture capitalists who have pumped $14 million into his start-up.

Already, Knightscope robots are edging into the private security industry, patrolling parking lots, a shopping center and corporate campuses in California. The company’s ambitions, though, are much bigger.

Knightscope manufactures two robots — the five-foot tall K5 and the four-foot K3. Both weigh a hefty 300 pounds (they were designed to make it hard to tip over). Customers such as the Stanford Shopping Center, Qualcomm and Uber rent them starting at about $7 an hour (Knightscope, based in Mountain View, Calif., charges more if companies want extra services, such as more than two weeks of data storage).

Ann Corcoran Presents a Call to Action against Democrats’ Radical Refugee Program

The editor of the excellent RefugeeResettlementWatch blog sees a dangerous uptick in the administration’s refugee program, as shown by its welcome of 10,000 unscreenable Syrians to American communities in recent months. As the administration has emphasized, the first group of 10,000 Syrians is “a floor, not a ceiling,” meaning that more — lots more — refugees are in the pipeline, particularly if Hillary Clinton is elected.

ANN CORCORAN: It has been nine years since I began investigating the very secretive refugee admissions program which turned 36 years old this year, and reported on what I found at my blog RefugeeResettlementWatch. A joint enterprise of the US State Department and the United Nations, the refugee admissions program was the brainchild of former Senators Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden. It was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter in 1980, and since then it has admitted almost 2 million refugees into your towns and cities.

In recent years the federal government admitted on average 60-70,000 refugees a year and placed them in hundreds of US towns and cities in 49 states where they immediately upon arrival receive all forms of welfare including Social Security for the elderly and disabled. Barack Obama has increased that number to 85,000 for this year — 10,000 of which are Syrian Sunni Muslims — and he vowed that next year he would propose bringing 100,000.

In September Obama will have his last opportunity to change America by changing its people, but we think he will go way beyond a hundred thousand as the resettlement industry, composed of nine federal contractors or VOLAGs (VOLuntary AGencies), began a huge propaganda campaign in Washington yesterday on August 28th, a rally that fizzled spectacularly. They held a pathetically small astroturf event to demand even higher numbers for Fiscal Year 2017 which begins on October 1st, demonstrating that popular support for more refugees is tepid.

This Washington DC rally, funded by George Soros and his globalist friends, is the lead up to a refugee extravaganza to be held at the United Nations where we know that the Organization of Islamic Cooperation has great influence. Obama will travel to New York City for two days in September the 19th and 20th to play host to world leaders and make Americans feel guilty about not welcoming poorly vetted Syrian refugees to their neighborhoods.

Clearly the timing of the event is meant to impact in November election, as Hillary Clinton has said she is in favor of much larger numbers of refugees especially Syrians. She’s on record saying that she wants 65,000 Syrians in the next year — 65,000 when we barely managed 10,000 this year. That would be in addition to the hundred thousand or more from other countries.

Backlash Alert! Muslims Claim They Fear Violence from Infidels on 9/11 Anniversary

This year, the 15th anniversary of Islam’s jihad attack on New York City and Washington falls on the same day as Eid al-Adha, (aka the feast of the sacrifice) as a result of the lunar calendar. The Muslim media squad has jumped on the coincidence, pretending to be frightened of gangs of angry Americans looking for payback: Backlash!

As if! We all remember who murdered 3000 Americans on that awful day, but lynchings or other violence against the perp tribe by citizens are unlikely because we are a law-abiding people.

In the real world, TheReligionOfPeace.com keeps track of relevant stats, and the number deadly terror attacks since 9/11 as of today, September 2, 2016, is 29,141. The thirty-day count of dead from jihad today is 1223.

So the attempt of Muslims to portray themselves as victims falls short. But they keep trying, because the diversity-crazed media keep responding by printing the stuff.

Muslims are known to enjoy their colorful sacrifice holidays, as shown below.

In fact, a recent instance of Muslims being shot down in America were the two jihadists carrying AK-47s about to attack a free speech event in Garland Texas. They were killed by a local police officer with his service revolver during a shootout the Muslims initiated.

Muslims murder for allah every day, but we are supposed to believe they are somehow victims of mean Americans. And why does the government continue to allow them to immigrate here anyway?

Muslims fear backlash as Eid could fall on September 11 for first time since 9/11 attacks, Express (UK), September 2, 2016

MUSLIMS fear they could be targeted in violent attacks as the holy day of Eid could fall on 11 September for the first time since 9/11.

Eid al-Adha, also known as the feast of the sacrifice, is the holiest Muslim celebration.

But this year’s celebration could fall on the 15th anniversary of the terror attacks on New York and the Pentagon which killed 2,996 people and injured 6,000.

The date of the religious celebration is determined by the lunar calendar and is set by academics.

The celebration has fallen close to 9/11 in previous years but has never arrived on the same date of the attacks.

The Muslim Council of Britain said the date-clash would be “completely coincidental”.

America’s Senator Jeff Sessions: “It's going to be a special night”

Any fear that Donald Trump’s long-awaited immigration policy speech would be based on a “softening” approach to enforcement were allayed by Senator Sessions during his warm-up remarks before the main event:

JEFF SESSIONS: “You’re going to hear the best laid out law enforcement plan to fix this country’s immigration system that’s been stated in this country, maybe forever! It is going to be so good you’re gonna be proud and pleased about that. . . It’s going to be a special night tonight.”

That’s high praise from America’s top sovereignty defender in Washington.

Curiously, Senator Sessions was actually booed by the Arizona audience when he enthused about John McCain’s victory against a primary opponent. Pro-sovereignty citizens naturally despise McCain for his support for amnesty. I chalk up Sessions’ unnecessary congratulations to McCain as a combination of Sessions’ deep politeness and the Senate group loyalty.

And as promised, Trump’s policy speech was filled with sensible strategies to return immigration to lawfulness. Read a transcript here.

Below, Trump and Sessions conferred in the Capitol last year. Senator Sessions was an early immigration policy advisor to Trump.

The Islamic Republic of Iran Is at War with the United States, but Washington Pretends Otherwise

Islam expert Robert Spencer’s most recent book The Complete Infidel Guide to Iran is an effort to wake the American people up regarding the theocratic state’s threat to the United States.

As Spencer has noted, “Iran is what ISIS aspires to be,” namely a jihadist nation dedicated to killing infidels and conquering the world for Islam.

After the terror attacks of 9/11, the United States went to war against Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, because America could not abide the existence of a nation run by Islamists who could use that place as a safe base for launching more attacks. In contrast, under Obama the US has funded the jihad state of Iran.

Spencer uses his brief discussion to illustrate how dedicated the Iran nation is to the pursuit of global jihad and destroying America. Iranian political, religious and military leaders are quoted expressing their loyalty to Islamic principles of world conquest above all else.

Iran is at war with the United States — as demonstrated in recent naval attacks, but our political leaders in Washington pretend not to notice. It’s a dangerous posture to take with a nation poised to become a nuclear armed power.

Robert Spencer here for JihadWatch, a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, and for the Center for Security Policy with the truth about the Islamic Republic of Iran: it’s at war with the United States, only the Obama administration hasn’t noticed.

The Jerusalem Post recently quoted the Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Ali Larijani warning the US administration and its House of Representatives and Senate that injurious measures against the nuclear agreement have reached such a point that there is no way left for Iran but to counteract.

As I show in my new book “The Complete Infidel’s Guide to Iran,” Ali Larijani’s bellicose language and thinly veiled threat may have come as a surprise to those who believe that Barack Obama and John Kerry brought peace for our time by means of the nuclear deal, but it was nothing new to those who have been paying closer attention to Iran than the Obama administration has.

When the nuclear deal was concluded, Ali Wambold, a member of the Qajar dynasty that ruled Iran from 1785 to 1925 and a longtime critic of the Islamic Republic, pointed out that the Constitution of the Islamic Republic “proclaims ‘the ideological mission of jihad,’ which it defines as ‘extending the sovereignty of God’s law throughout the world,’ through Iran’s Army and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.” Thus, he said, “to treat with the Islamic Republic over the particulars of its weaponry while failing to address the very purpose of its bellicosity is delusional. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action does nothing to change the fact that, in plain Farsi, Iran is committed to world conquest by Islam, with its clerics as warlords. Those to be conquered include America (the ‘Great Satan’), Israel (the ‘Little Satan’) and the Sunni-led Gulf States.” Continue reading this article

Government Doesn’t Tell One Million Identity Theft Victims That Their Social Security Numbers Have Been Stolen by Illegals

How little does the Obama administration respect the American people? His disdain for citizens is clear from his lecturing to the people on their alleged failures and his extreme open borders that cause enormous misery.

The latest insult is a new report revealing how the IRS never informed victims of identity theft that illegal aliens had ripped off their Social Security numbers.

Below, Audra Schmierer’s Social Security number was used by at least 81 people in 17 states, mostly illegal aliens looking for work. But at least the California woman found out about the theft — when she was hit by the IRS for unpaid taxes of $15,815 for a job in Texas.

AudraSchmiererIdentityTheftVictim

The recent report shows that making job theft easier for illegal aliens is apparently more important to the government than protecting law-abiding citizens. No wonder that Donald Trump’s theme of “Americans first” has been a winner among millions of voters.

IRS doesn’t tell 1M taxpayers that illegals stole their Social Security numbers, By Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, August 30, 2016

The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.

Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled — and fell woefully short anyway.

As a result, most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.

“Taxpayers identified as victims of employment-related identity theft are not notified,” the inspector general said.

The report alarmed lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who were shocked that the IRS had gone for so long without fixing the issue.

“It is stunning that the IRS has chosen to aid and abet identity thieves for so long instead of protecting the innocent victims of the theft,” said Sen. Daniel Coats, Indiana Republican.

Victims’ numbers are stolen by illegal immigrants who need to give employers a valid Social Security number in order to get a job. Employers are prohibited from probing too deeply into numbers, even when they suspect fraud.

But the IRS learns of the scam when the illegal immigrants file their taxes using a special Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) the agency doles out chiefly to illegal immigrants as a way of making sure they’re paying taxes even if they’re not supposed to be in the U.S. Continue reading this article

LoweBot Retail Robot Will Soon Be Deployed in San Francisco Bay Area

Attention, hardware shoppers! Any questions you may have about products in the Lowe’s store can now be answered by the spiffy new retail robot in multiple languages, because LoweBot is linguistically diverse!

Lowe’s likes how the machine can function for 24/7 with no lunch breaks or paychecks required. Plus, the LoweBot also performs inventory tracking as it cruises around the aisles — no need to hire a human for that task either.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics put the number of retail sales workers in 2014 at 4,859,600. Many of those jobs are threatened by retail robots — not immediately, but as the price of the bots go down, more businesses will add them to save labor costs.

The LoweBot, an updated version of the OSHbot, will be rolled out in San Francisco Bay Area Lowe’s stores this fall.

LoweBotRetailRobot

The profound changes in the workplace due to automation are likely to undermine the basic economic cycle of humans getting paid for performing work and purchasing manufactured goods in the stores using their wages. How is the economy supposed to work without shoppers?

In light of the automated future, it makes no sense for the government to continue importing millions of foreign workers to do jobs that are disappearing. Expert predictions are sobering: In 2013, an Oxford University study (“The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?”) was published that concluded nearly half of US employment is at risk of being replaced by smart machines. The respected Gartner tech consultants predicted in 2014 that one-third of jobs will be taken by smart machines and software by 2025.

In short, automation makes immigration obsolete. Let’s just stop, for a less chaotic future.

Lowe’s introduces LoweBot, a new autonomous in-store robot, CNBC, August 30, 2016

“Hello, I’m NAVii. How can I help you?” This is how the store associate of the future may greet you.

Starting in the fall, Lowe’s shoppers in the San Francisco Bay Area will be greeted by autonomous robots. The LoweBot speaks multiple languages, and will be deployed to 11 stores to help guide home improvers to find items in store.

“This is a response to things people wanted since retail began, but up until now there just wasn’t the technology to be able to make that happen,” said Kyle Nel, executive director of Lowe’s Innovation Labs.

The robots, made by Fellow Robots, use a 3-D scanner to detect people as they into stores. Shoppers can search for items by asking the bot what they want or typing items into a touch screen. The bot can guide them to those items using smart laser sensors, similar to the technology used in autonomous vehicles, said Marco Mascorro, chief executive officer of Fellow Robots.

Critics Note Extreme Lack of Christians among Syrian Refugees

Obama hit his 10,000 Syria refugee goal the other day, a month ahead of the fiscal year deadline. Now critics are asking why so few are Christians — a mere 52 individuals, or 0.5 percent — despite the fact that Christians are the ones being genocided by Muslims in their Middle Eastern homelands. Why is the government bringing the dangerous perp tribe here rather than rescuing endangered Christians?

Below, in 2014 ISIS burned an 1800-year-old church in Mosul Iraq.

Stuart Varney of Fox Business was outraged that the number of Syrian Christians was negligible. He discussed the situation with Zuhdi Jasser on Tuesday.

STUART VARNEY: The ten thousand Syrian refugees admitted to the United States. There’s an interesting story here — will you break down those numbers, E-Mac.

ELIZABETH MacDONALD: Muslims, there’s 9945; Christians, just 52. Remember, John Kerry said Yes there’s Christian genocide going on, but he only did that after the House of Representatives voted unanimously saying Yes there is genocide of Christians going on in the Middle East.

VARNEY: 9945 Muslims, 52 Christians are coming in — got it. Zuhdi Jasser is with us this morning. Zuhdi, can you explain this to our viewers? 9945 Muslims and 52 Christians — I thought it was the Christians who are being killed and slaughtered.

ZUHDI JASSER: Well Stuart, this is what happens when you don’t have ideological vetting, when we just sort of let first-come first-serve, you’re not going to actually be fair. This is why vetting is so important because the Christians are not Islamist. We have to vet against Islamists and then the numbers will follow. And the Christians are getting it from both sides. The Assadists, the Assad regime works with Hezbollah and the radical Shia element and then the ISIS Islamists are radical Sunni elements, so caught in the middle are the Christian community. They can’t even go to the refugee camps because they get persecuted there, so we have to make an effort to bring them out —active effort to do so, and when the State Department doesn’t, they just Sunniso new Muslim.

VARNEY: See, I’m not looking for a religious test: I’m far from it. I’m looking for a genuine refugee test — who are the genuinely persecuted people? Bring them in, that’s America’s role. I got no problem with that no matter who they are.

JASSER: Exactly — we’re at war, we’re at war against political Islam the Islamist that have a theo-political ideology that hates the West, hates freedom and democracy, that includes from a tough-love perspective, an ideology within the Muslim community — but not all Muslims — and so far even before, it used to be 50-50 Christians of the 30,000. The last 10,000 has been all Sunni Muslim because we have no longer been vetting. I mean, when Secretary Kerry yesterday in Bangladesh makes this statement “Oh too bad the media’s paying too much attention to terrorism, they just shouldn’t even pay attention to it” — that tells you where the radar of the State Department is, and unfortunately the Christian community is caught in the middle and is being ignored.

VARNEY: Let me fill that in for you, exactly what John Kerry said yesterday in the media: “If you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist… you can make some noise. Perhaps the media should do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.” That’s the Secretary of State from the United States of America saying that kind of thing. What is this?

JASSER: I don’t even know. I’m speechless. We hear our Secretary of State as we take in thousands of refugees, most of whom need refuge, as you are seeing, Stuart, but if we don’t vet for the ideologies that threaten us that lead to terrorism, if we don’t have a barometer in which to predict and know what are the precursors for radicalization which is Islamism, that he’s going to make ridiculous utterances like this that completely portray him as either being a fool or trying to deceive America. And Americans are smart, and I hope as we head towards the election season, we start to get politicians that really understand what keeps America safe.

Plus, the administration doesn’t intend to stop importing Syrian Muslims but plans to continue at full speed. As the Washington Times reported on Monday: 30,000 more Syrian refugees waiting in the wings as Obama hits 10,000 goal ahead of schedule.

Interestingly, ZERO Syrian refugees were sent to Obama’s home state Hawaii or Joe Biden’s New Jersey: dangerous Muslim diversity for little citizens, but not for the neighborhoods of the top elites.

Christians Need Not Apply: Few Syrian Christian Refugees Allowed into US, CBN, August 30, 2016

The Obama administration has surpassed its goal of receiving 10,000 Syrian refugees by Oct. 1, but very few of the new arrivals are Christian.

The official count for the fiscal year reached 10,126 resettled Syrians when 224 refugees arrived Monday. They are among 12,000 Syrian refugees interviewed earlier this year in Jordan by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Although 1 million Christians have fled Syria, Christians comprise only 0.51 percent of the refugee total.  More than 98 percent of those allowed into the United States this fiscal year are Sunni Muslims, the largest Islamic sect in Syria comprising 74 percent of that population.
