The title of this post is another position portrayed by the left which may be accurate, however it also acts to reveal the disastrous flaws that would exist as a consequence of any potential intake of Syrian refugees. The statement ‘Most Syrian refugees are not terrorists’, is absolutely true, and there are few people that truly believe that the majority of Syrian refugees are violent extremists.
Yet, this very statement, in itself reveals a politically incorrect truth, that some are reluctant to hear. If all Syrian refugees were entirely peaceful, and able to seamlessly integrate into Western society, there would be ‘no’ potential terrorists. In stating that ‘most’ refugees are devoid of violent tendencies, an admission is provided of the problems that have been proven to exist among some. This is a delusional and dangerous stream of thinking, which asserts that somehow we are supposed to hope that most refugees are to be peaceful people, yet when the time comes, violent actions can be excused or accommodated for.
In Australia, the perpetrators of the Sydney siege in 2014, as well as the Parramatta police station shooting, were both former refugees. Clearly, it is far from being a majority, yet, past importation of Islamic refugees, has proven to be deadly in our recent history. I view this as being simple issue with a simple response. If there is a marked and proven threat to Australians, and our way of life, we should take action to reduce this threat, through, preventing Syrian refugees getting into this country. Even if this is one potential Islamist, or sympathiser with any radical organisation, this is too much for Australia in its current climate, and the response should follow accordingly.
It is an uncomplicated solution, which far too many are reluctant to embrace.
