This piece by Sarah Hoyt, posted on Instapundit, captures the heartbreak of seeing families flee Islamic violence. I agree with her wholeheartedly. I want to reach out to rescue them; but, I do not want the civil war that they bring with them. The stench of oppression and murder follows in their wake. The breakdown in the Middle East was inevitable, but rapidly accelerated by the Obama Administration. Europe fought off Muslim invasions over centuries. European Christians founded America to escape state religious persecution. Will today’s Europe disappear, absorbed by Islam’s refugees and immigrants? Will America invite the forces of religious persecution here? Will America remain America? Whose Muslim sons will grow up to blow up? Here.
I do not know what to do about the upheaval in Middle Eastern lands that causes panicked thousands to flee to the West. I do know that I do not want to import generations of future jihadists demanding that America become Islamic.
I also know that letting our borders down, and invites the Islamization of our culture invites anarchy and chaos.
