Ann Corcoran does exemplary work.
Today we were sent a link to her latest post on Austria’s PC/MC dhimmified decision to accept Muslim asylum seekers. Actions have consequences: the dhimmis, having grasped this nettle, are now stamping their feet about the pain while Counterjihadists roll their eyes and reply, “Well, duh…what did you think those battles for Vienna were about, anyway?”
Below is today’s post from Refugee Resettlement Watch. Her links to her previous posts about this issue may be found at her URL.
Like Gates of Vienna, Ann keeps a subject archive; it’s linked on the post I’ve mirrored (though I have omitted her links in this mirroring, but you can find them there).
(Reuters) – Authorities suspect around 130 people resident in Austria – most of them foreign nationals – have allied themselves with Islamist militants fighting abroad, officials in Vienna said on Friday, raising their estimate by nearly a third.
Public safety director Konrad Kogler told a news conference the 130 figure included “people actively participating in combat as well as ones who have returned to Austria, because both groups of people are relevant for us”. He thought around two-thirds of them had come back to Austria and one-third were in battle or on the way there. Officials were tracking the target group’s foreign travel and monitoring their activities when they return given the security risk they might pose, he said.
He said 40 of the 130 were Austrian citizens. The others were primarily from Russia, the Balkans and Turkey.
Kogler did not confirm reports that the nine suspects – one aged just 17 – were Chechens, but said many were Russian citizens.
The suspects had mostly come to Austria as young people and got political asylum that could be revoked should they be convicted of joining a terrorist organization, officials said.
To which Ms. Corcoran adds this exasperated note:
“Big deal! I am sure those budding Jihadists are concerned about the revocation of their political refugee status!”
I looked for some of our reports on the subject of Austrian jihadists and came up with this series from early 2013, focusing on “The Votive Church” and the harm leftists have done to the Catholic Church and to the citizens of Austria with their naïve calculations and disruptions:
- Asylum Seekers, the Catholic Church, and an All-Out Culture War, Introduction
- Asylum Fraud and the Devastation of Society (Asylum Seekers, the Catholic Church, and an All-Out Culture War, Part 1)
- Asylum Seekers, the Catholic Church, and an All-Out Culture War (Cardinal of Vienna Attacks Leftist Lobby Groups, Part 2)
- Church of the Extortionists (Asylum Seekers, the Catholic Church, and an All-Out Culture War, Part 3 )
Just in case you think our American Left is any smarter, read this sad tale:
Democratic State Representative and candidate for U.S. representative Pat Murphy said Tuesday that if the underage migrants who have come to the U.S. from Central America aren’t given a “pathway for citizenship” they could become terrorists.
Speaking with Iowa Public Radio host Ben Kieffer, Murphy said that “we need to make sure that we take care of the children that are coming up here.”
“They’re not from Mexico, they’re coming from further south,” Murphy continued. “We need to make sure that when we’re talking about these children we need to treat them like they’re our children or our grandchildren. If they’re gonna be refugees, which several of them are going to be, we need to make sure that we have — one, we take care of them, and we create a pathway for citizenship and set up education for them so they don’t become the same problem that we’re currently having in the Middle East — that they’ll be terrorists a generation from now.”
We don’t even take care of our own American underclass children; the Left’s MSM (and they have the lock on media) treat the fact that poor blacks kill one another as though it were news just in from another planet. Thus given the Left’s success at keeping America’s underclass broke and jobless and safely in the Dems’ corner, obviously this whole new
future voting bloc group of unfortunates brings a sparkle to the Democrats’ eyes.
Give the Democrats their diabolical due: while the oligarchs acquire ever greater access to our wealth, the urban Democrat machine keeps the plantation running with more promises of easier and better stuff.
Meanwhile, besides just the “refugees seeking asylum” we have our own hopeless, violent young men and our own Leftist-Dreamers-Without-a-Cause from the other side of the tracks, both converging on this kewl Purpose-Driven life. It’s a hook-up made in heaven: all those Western adolescents and post-adolescents will find new meaning in blowing things up.
How soon before Sudden Jihad Syndrome becomes ho-hum? It probably won’t get real until these boyos come back home to carry out their bloody-mindedness in the ’hood — including the exclusive neighborhoods. Between outbreaks of Ebola and outbreaks of Jihad Here & Now, American public life may come to look very different in the next few years.
