Brody asked the president, “the refugee changes..., as it relates to persecuted Christians, do you see them as kind of a priority here?” The president responded “Yes”, and that they are going through many horrible treatments, and is a very significant priority. Judge, the president has clearly said he will prioritize christian refugees and this is blunt religious discrimination.
Developments in Society can be seen in many different ways depending on an individual’s worldview or perspective. This idea is evident through the Syrian Refugee Crisis and how it affects Canada. This crisis in Canada is changing every day, as the government creates decisions on how they will or will not aid the refugees. Canadians are saying that they may approve of this refugee resettlement plan laid out by the federal government, but only if it’s taken so far and so fast. The reporters of a Vancouver News Network, a Toronto Tabloid, and an America Daily Newspaper compare and contrast the ideas of a survey from the Angus Reid Institute, a non-profit organization that conducts surveys to analyze different trends in the economy. This survey
Should Syrian refugees be allowed to seek refuge in the United States of America? This question is in serious debate among many citizen’s and elected officials in the free world (Zaimov, 2016). Terrorism has struck a widespread panic in Americans who fear the teachings of the Islamic religion. The Muslims communities are taught about the Holy War, or also known as Jihad. Their Doctrine uses this Jihad as one of their ways to eventually dominate the world (Bradley County News, 2015). So why would not every American citizen fear any religious group that believes that any non-believer should be eradicated before Allah? In this paper, we will confer on aspects of both scientific and spiritual reasoning concerning this question.
Denying the entrance of Syrian refugees into certain states sabotages the values America’s founders instilled in the United States. The people inhabiting this country in the next century will find it difficult to know that their ancestors let this injustice slip through. Especially due to the previous occurrence that was deemed as a wrong doing to the Jewish people. The exclusion of a certain race is archaic in current times, let alone in the views of the next generation. Due to the Syrian civil war, many people are being forced to leave their home country in hopes of a better quality of life. The constant violence, lack of adequate healthcare, and ravaged economy are all reasons why the so many Syrians are escaping the country (“What You Need…Impact on Children"). They lack the many commodities that the American general public take for granted. Large masses are leaving with no plan for where the journey will take
The Christian evangelist’s statement comes in the wake of the French church attack last week in which a Christian priest in Normandy was killed by supporters of the Islamic State. In a Facebook post, Rev. Franklin Graham slammed President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s plan to welcome tens of thousands of Muslim refugees into the U.S., saying it could trigger more attacks on Christians, The Christian Post relays.
As President Barack Obama said, “Apparently they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the United States of America” (Darcy). The Syrian refugee crisis is a huge subject of discussion during this presidential race and the results of this election, whether Republican or Democratic, will be the difference between helping or hurting this migration. The Syrian refugee crisis has been a worldwide problem since the civil war started in 2011. The death toll quickly rose as the violence got out of hand. The next president is going to ultimately decide the fate of tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, innocent men, women and children. Currently our president is going to allow up to 10,000 Syrian refugees to find safe haven in the US. Every single presidential candidate has their own stance on the issue, Republicans lean towards restriction of the refugee policy, while Democrats lean towards loosening it.
As one of the worst refugee crises since World War Two, the Syrian Refugee Crisis has caused many people to flee for their lives from their homes in Syria in hopes of finding their safe haven. According to the White House’s government-controlled website, “since 2011, almost 12 million people, equivalent to half of the Syrian population, have been displaced by the conflict, including 7.6 displaced inside Syria” (whitehouse.gov). Around the globe, many government officials have taken on welcoming attitudes towards the millions of people that are seeking refuge from their war-ridden home-country, while some other officials have taken on very cautious dispositions mainly in fear of consequently making their people vulnerable to attacks.

Hana Pierces girl’s ears and taking care of family members children in her spare time. She helps her parent in domestic works. Dominus states that it is illegal to work in Lebanon when they are Syrian refugee because of that supervisor who let them work in the field treat them unpleasantly. One day, when Hanna asks for water while working in the field, the supervisor says that “What are you stupid?” (qtd. in Dominus), but she continues to work. She reported that the World Food Program aids $14 for each person, and the WFP raised $21. Dominus says that water shortage was difficult before the Syrian refugees into Lebanon, and it is usual two to three people get sick in the camp because of the contamination.
Some may think the Syrian refugee crisis is not ongoing, but there are Syrian children being affected and dealing with the trauma of losing loved ones. Even if this conflict is in a different country, American citizens can still help. In the article Syrian refugee crisis: Facts to know, it states the severity of the problem issuing, “Civilians have been continually in harm's way, caught in the crossfire and charging front lines. Civilian infrastructure has been targeted, leading to mass civilian casualties, including women and children” (Johnson n.pag.). These people are getting wrongfully killed and are in a tough state of mind. They can barely leave their homes without being in a battlefield and in dangers way. Six years has been long enough,
The major crisis of the Syrian refugees (happening as we speak) is a major indicator that Islamophobia is real and growing. Many think that violence and collapsed infrastructure are the reasons why 90% of Syrians are currently seeking a new, safer home for their families and loved ones. However, many are also forgetting that radicalised Muslims are one of the more dominant reasons why this refugee crisis began in the first place. Innocent Syrian refugees are seeking a safer home from the terrorists like ISIS who are terrorising them, showing the difference between radicalised Muslims and Muslims in general. Since the Syrian civil war began, 320,000 Syrian people have been killed by radicalised Islamic groups, including nearly 12,000 children. Over 9 million
Summary: The refugees of Syria have gone through unimaginable hardships. The Olywi sisters had their hopes of achieving their dreams in their hometown of Raqqa. However, their dreams were shattered when the Islamic State overran the city, forcing the Olywi sisters and their father to pay smugglers a large sum of money to be smuggled to Greece. Manal, Wisam, and Mwafak, siblings from the neighborhood of Yarmouk, were separated from each other for years. They were finally reunited in Germany, but the reunion was short lived when Manal died of cancer. Though they did find Germany a safe haven, Wisam remarks that it is hard to adjust to such an unfamiliar place with such a different culture. In Sweden, many feel that these refugees are taking over their Swedish culture. There is even evidence of Islamophobia within the immigrant communities in Sweden. However, it is not as bad as Russia. Yasser, a tailor, claims that his boss stopped to pay him and that if he does not like the current situation that he is in, he can just go back to Syria. Police there even bride the refugees for money.
In 1942, millions of jews lost their lives to hitler’s forces. The world wanted to take action. In 2015, the world still is not taking action and repeating the same mistakes of 73 years prior. The world hasn't learn there lesson from the Holocaust.
After a long day at school or work you go home, have a snack, watch some television and do homework or chores. Then you have a nice, quiet dinner with your family and can go to bed. In the world, this is what society regards as the “norm.” Now think of laboring ten times as hard for no pay but for your freedom; barely having scraps to eat and stressing over the fact that your tarp roof might blow away and leave you unprotected during the night. Sadly, this is the “norm” for most Syrian refugees. Around the world, countries can help the crisis in Syria politically by looking past differences and uniting with refugees, economically by realizing that helping refugees will advance our economy rather than diminish
This is the story of Dania, a ten year old Syrian refugee now living in Lebanon. She can still recall hours spent huddling in a hole in the ground that her father had dug for the family in times of artillery attack, as they crouched in the dirt covering their heads. She could hear the boom of cars exploding, as buildings and stores crumbled to the ground. Ever since the beginning of the Syrian Civil War three years ago, her life has not been the same. Her small school has been destroyed by explosions, and her uncle killed in a missile attack. By the summer of 2013 her family came face to face with the realities of war-- either die in Syria or risk everything by fleeing to Lebanon. To Dana’s family there was no choice, they had to flee. She has been living as a refugee in Lebanon ever since (Lewis).
How would a person feel living in a country they had been forced to immigrant to that is not their own? Syrian refugees have been forced to flee their Syrian homeland as a result of their unstable environment. These refugees must leave quickly, leaving all their possessions in search of a better life in other European countries. One of the countries that has granted asylum to many Syrian refugees is Germany, but the story does not end there for thousands of refugees upon their arrival. The day to day survival is difficult in a new country for adult refugees trying to support their families. Most struggle, desperate to get the necessary training in Germany to ascertain a well paying job. However another, almost forgotten group of refugees are the thousands of children who also fled their homeland countries and are not able to obtain a basic education. These families risked their lives on the perilous journey to European countries, only to find, they do not have the basic needs to support themselves and their families. According to Lori Robertson’s article Stretching Facts on Syrian Refugees, she explains how “The majority of refugees — 51.1 percent — are under age 17, including 38.5 percent who are younger than 12 years old.”(Robertson). However, three million Syrian children do not attend school on regular basis. Although many refugees have survived the harsh conditions on their journey to Germany, there needs to be an increase in the number of refugee children being
