German Govt Begins Migrant Propaganda Campaign, Urges Citizens To Overcome Their ‘Dark Side’


Their "dark side" when they have a serious problem with being gang raped???

German Govt Begins Migrant Propaganda Campaign, Urges Citizens To Overcome Their ‘Dark Side’

A German government ministry has begun an aggressive advertising campaign urging citizens to overcome their “dark side” and embrace open door mass migration and multiculturalism.

“Germany, stay strong! With humanity towards your dark side” and “Against Hate & baiting – no ifs or buts” read the propaganda billboards.

The text is written over a German flag dripping with black paint. Organisers say they hope to “retrieve” the flag from “right wing” and “nationalist” groups such as the PEGIDA and the Eurosceptic Alternative for Germany (AfD), represented on the poster by the encroaching black paint.

“‘Germany, stay strong!’ Is a call to civil society, to oppose right-wing tendencies and incitement. An appeal to a welcoming culture for people in need – and for a cosmopolitan Germany”, writes the left wing ‘Show Your Face! For a cosmopolitan Germany’ group on its website.

Six hundred such giant billboard adverts are expected to go up, and 20,000 stickers and 45,000 postcards will be distributed in the campaign, which is backed by Germany’s Ministry for Families, Seniors, Women and Youth.

“PEGIDA and Co. abuse the flag of the Federal Republic,” proclaimed Uwe-Karsten Heye, the chairman of the group at the campaign launch. “Indeed the flag and Constitution stand for an open society, the right to asylum and for inviolable human dignity”, he claimed.

“I think it is necessary to give people courage to stand against right-wing extremism and xenophobia,” Mr. Heye added, talking to Der Tagesspeigel. 

The organisation’s manager, Sophia Oppermann, said that they also wished to encourage left wing and “humanitarian” groups to use and display the national flag more often.

“We’re tired with the right constantly waving the German flag, and all the others have no chance,” she said. “We are also proud of this country and we stand for the values ​​that have this flag and this country.”

Specifically, the group wants the German public to embrace the 1.5 million migrants who arrived in Germany in 2015, and to keep welcoming them this year as Chancellor Merkel’s open door policy continues unabated.

“We must continue to act with humanity and we must insist that we are dealing with individuals, individuals, have to do”, Ms. Oppermann said.

She argued that the majority of migrants were refugees seeking protection, but admitted there are “huge problems” associated with the mass influx from the Middle East.

“You have to develop ideas on how you can do that”, she said. Adding: “People will, together we hope, strengthen the great majority of society”.

ISIS Leader Infiltrates Germany As “Refugee”, While German “Welcome Wagons” Excuse “Refugee” Rapists! Officialdom’s Treachery. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

ISIS Leader Infiltrates Germany As “Refugee”, While German “Welcome Wagons” Excuse “Refugee” Rapists! Officialdom’s Treachery. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

WHILE Der Spiegel has been busy “piecing” together intel re the infiltration of an ISIS leader into Germany, a particular contact of this site – who has sources in Syria -“hinted” at the very same penetration since the fall of 2015. In fact, without naming names, he made himself VERY clear: More than one ISIS leader entered Germany (and another western European nation) under the “refugee” program. Imagine that. Furthermore, he asserted that a few within Germany’s top-tier political echelon were aware of said situation and chose to stay mum. Oh well….wonder why….Alas, Der Spiegel was following its own leads and let the “jihadi cat out of the bag.”

EVEN so, the explosive nature of the intel was kept under wraps on this end, and only because that was the agreement to begin with. Apparently, his sources within Syria would not only dry up, but become endangered. The question left hanging in the air was: Why say anything in the first place? 

IN any event, a decision was taken to ramp up reporting, thus, raising a spotlight on Angela Merkel’s inextricable push toward subsuming the nation (by extrapolation, the rest of Europe) into a third world haven for Islamic-infused barbarians, despite all her public (humanitarian) gobblyggok lies to the contrary. 

MERKEL’S thrust to consume Germany with Islamic “refugees” is so intense that she recruited Facebook  – the biggest social media site on the planet – to “assist.” Therefore, negative posts re “refugees” are banned by Facebook’s nebulous  “community standards” – Islam good, western patriotism bad and so on – and censors, free speech be damned.  


NOT only that, she threatened Eastern Euro leaders: Accept “refugees” – or prepare for war!


TO make matters worse, MERKEL’S “refugee” jihadi rapists and Germany’s secret police memo rendered the city of Cologne Sharia law compliant. Submissive.


IN fact, the situation is so grave, German judges have already stated that entry given to hundreds of thousands of “refugees” – without proper authorization from gov’t entities – is illegal on its face. Imagine that.

AND thus it is hardly surprising that a TOP ISIS commander entered Germany, but its intel agencies were (supposedly) none the wiser. 

The Muslim infiltrator, identified only by his first name “Bassam,” was pretending to be a refugee and had been accommodated at the German taxpayers’ expense in the picturesque municipality of Sankt Johann.

The Der Spiegel magazine (h/t New Observer)  had in the interim been informed by contacts in Syria that a senior IS commander had come to Germany posing as a “refugee.” That magazine sent journalists to follow-up on this lead, and, after obtaining his passport and his cell phone sim card, started piecing together the IS man’s path.

Bassam was, according to the information collected by Der Spiegel, an ISIS military commander in the district west of Deir al-Zor, a town in eastern Syria. He had originally been with the “moderate” rebels supplied, armed, and financed by the US government, but had, like almost all of them, defected first to the Al Nusra front and then to ISIS.

The cell phone sim card contained deleted photographs of IS actions in Syria which were recovered, along with pictures of the IS commander and friends in various poses. One of the many pictures recovered on the cell phone was of an IS execution in which victims were burned alive in metal cages.

Several witnesses in Syria who Der Spiegel spoke to said that Bassam had been a “notorious commander responsible for the deaths of dozens of people in Deir al-Zor and the surrounding area.”

In autumn, Bassam made it to Germany, pretending to be a refugeeDer Spiegel tracked him down and even interviewed him, before handing all their evidence over to the police, who then raided his residence.

The worst aspect of the situation is that the German security services were completely unaware of Bassam prior to the Der Spiegel investigations.

The raids were the second major police action against IS guerillas pretending to be refugees in Germany this week, after a swoop last Thursday saw several arrests in Berlin, Lower Saxony, and North Rhine-Westphalia.

AS if failure to vet who enters Germany’s borders isn’t beyond the pale and a TOTAL national betrayal, officials actually sponsor parties for them ala communal “welcome wagons!” If the aforementioned is not A GRAVE dereliction of duty via slitting the nation’s underbelly in the process, well, little else qualifies. But not to veer too off tangent, U.S. officials were forced to admit that vetting “refugees” is hardly a “done deal.”

FBI Director James Comey, flanked by the nation’s top intelligence officials, admitted to the House Homeland Security Committee Wednesday that for some of the 10,000 Syrian refugees the administration has agreed to allow into the U.S., there will be no basis to vet them through the databases it uses to determine if they have ties to terrorism.

“We can only query against that which we have collected, and so if someone has never made a ripple in the pond in Syria in a way that would get their identity or their interests reflected in our database, we can query our database til the cows come home, but … there’ll be nothing show up, because we have no record on that person,” said Comey.

IN any event, as is said,”boys will be boys” takes on the most ominous tone imaginable, at least when exposing Germany’s official “welcome wagons.” How so? Their Orwellian reactions to rape-jihad, which happened to occur right under their noses, is a prudent place to start! And if readers are still capable of being shocked, due to all the madness displayed by western leaders, suffice to state the following is prime evidence of said moral and national breakdown

Oh, the irony. An association called “Refugees Welcome Bonn e.V.” organized a refugee welcome party. But then these do-gooders met the Islamic culture: the Muslim migrants sexually molested the women at the party.

And still the running dogs for Islam on the left continue to lay down for them (literally).  You can’t make this stuff up.

Here is what “Welcome Refugee” org posted on their site after the party (thanks to Mark):
*English version*
Refugees Welcome Bonn e.V. wants to comment on the incidents that happened on party on the Township on Nov. 7th and was co-organized by our group. At the party we observed that some men molested, touched and harassed women. As co-organizer we want to apologize. During the party we tried to identify the offenders and make the leave the venue; also we made announcements where we asked to stop this behavior immediately. However, these measures were not successful. We apologize for that! Those men cast a negative light on our organization as well as on all men and male refugees, who were at our party.
[…] instead of just adversely pointing fingers at those who misbehave, we believe it’s as important for everyone in our civil society to tackle these differences in the daily integration.
For that reason we will increase our efforts to give no space to such behaviour during our upcoming parties and other events. We believe it’s essential to treat each other with respect and share the idea of a general equality between all human beings. That necessarily includes, akzepting [sic] a “No“, when making advances to somebody, instead of forcing your will on another person. We as a group campaign for this. Still it has to be said clearly, that this kind of behavior is not acceptable and not tolerated in our group. 

WHEN all the above info is placed into civilized and rational context, one can then “understand” how Merkel’s Germany became a raging pit of Islamic jihadi hell fire. Alas, rape is now “explained” away as “misbehavior” that has to be “understood”, as indicated by the co-organizers of the “welcome wagon”: “We believe it’s as important for everyone in our civil society to tackle these differences in the daily integration.” W T F??

NO doubt, just as Euros can’t trust their damnable leaders, so too Americans would be crazy to trust theirs. Therefore, yesterday’s commentary takes on ever greater import and urgency:

CNN: Top Intelligence Official: ISIS To Attempt U.S. Attacks This Year
“Top U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that ISIS was likely to attempt direct attacks on the U.S. in the coming year and that the group was infiltrating refugees escaping from Iraq and Syria to move across borders. ISIS ‘will probably attempt to conduct additional attacks in Europe, and attempt to direct attacks on the U.S. homeland in 2016,’ Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, testified on Capitol Hill Tuesday. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who was also at the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, estimated that violent extremists were active in about 40 countries and that there currently exist more terrorist safe havens ‘than at any time in history.’”
Fox: Top Intel Official Confirms ISIS Made, Used Chemical Weapons
“The nation’s top intelligence official confirmed Tuesday that the Islamic State has succeeded in making and deploying chemical agents in Iraq and Syria -- calling it the first such attack by an extremist group in more than two decades.  The confirmation of mustard gas use came during Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, where he spoke to the Islamic State's growing sophistication online and in the battlefield. He did not elaborate on where and when the chemical attacks occurred, though there has been mounting evidence the terror group was experimenting with chemical weapons.”
New York Times: ISIS, In A First, Says It’s Behind Attack In Capital Of Syria
“A car bomb tore up a vegetable market and a police officers’ club in Damascus, the Syrian capital, on Tuesday, according to a witness and to regional news reports, striking an area that had been quiet for about two years under a local agreement between the Syrian government and insurgents. The Islamic State, using its official media channels, claimed responsibility for the blast, which the witness said had wounded dozens in Masaken Barzeh, a neighborhood on the northern edge of the city. It was the first attack in Damascus itself to be claimed by the Islamic State, although the group said it was behind an assault last month on the Sayeda Zeinab shrine, on the outskirts of the capital, that left dozens dead.”
Reuters: Turkey Detains 34 People With Explosives, Suicide Vests At Syrian Border - Media
“The Turkish military detained 34 people and seized up to 15 kg of explosives and four suicide-bomber vests as they tried to enter Turkey from Syria, Turkish media reported the army as saying on Wednesday. The private Dogan news agency and other media outlets said the group, consisting of four men, 10 women and 20 children, was detained on Tuesday night in the Oguzeli district of southeastern Gaziantep province, across the border from an area controlled by Islamic State militants.”
Reuters: U.N. Fears For Hundreds Of Thousands If Syria Troops Encircle Aleppo
“Hundreds of thousands of civilians could be cut off from food if Syrian government forces encircle rebel-held parts of Aleppo, the United Nations said on Tuesday, warning of a new exodus of refugees fleeing a Russian-backed assault. The army aims to secure the border with Turkey and recover control of Aleppo, a senior adviser to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad told Reuters, adding that she did not expect diplomacy to succeed while foreign states maintain support for insurgents. The U.N. is worried the government advance could cut off the last link for civilians in rebel-held parts of Aleppo with the main Turkish border crossing, which has long served as the lifeline for insurgent-controlled territory.”
The Blaze: Israeli Military Chief Hints At Secret Engineering Work To Combat Hamas Tunnel Threat
“Israel’s military chief of staff said Tuesday that Israel is quietly working — mostly in secret — to combat the threat of Hamas attack tunnels. Lt. Gen. Gadi Eizenkot made his remarks following the collapse of at least four tunnels since the end of January. The multiple cave-ins, which have killed at least 12 Hamas members, over such a short period of time has raised questions as to whether Israel was involved. The top IDF commander did not say if Israel had caused the recent tunnel collapses, Hamas had attributed the phenomenon to recent rainy weather.”
Voice Of America: Al-Qaida, Yemeni Forces Clash In Aden

“Yemeni forces and al-Qaida militants battled Tuesday in Yemen's southern port city of Aden, leaving several people dead. The fighting took place in the Mansoura district.  Residents there said the Yemeni troops were backed by aircraft from a Saudi-led coalition that has been fighting on behalf of President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi for nearly a year. The government is trying to establish control over Aden after pushing out Houthi rebels late last year.  The Houthis still control Yemen's capital, Sana'a, and other parts in the north.”
Sputnik: Copenhagen Sees 66% Rise In Suspected Radicals
“Municipal authorities received 100 reports in 2015 about people who showed signs of radicalization, compared to 60 notifications in 2014. Eighteen of those reports turned out to have cause, Anna Mee Allerslev told the local broadcaster DR. ‘It is a daunting figure for such a small city as Copenhagen. It is too many when you look at our population and compare it with other European and Western cities,’ Allerslev noted. In all of the 18 cases that were investigated, the residents in question were found to have propagated a radical interpretation of Islam, the Danish broadcaster said. There was no information given on the background of the individuals involved.”
New York Times: British Effort To Identify Potential Radicals Spurs Debate Over Profiling
“The boy’s teachers were growing increasingly concerned. He was speaking admiringly in school of Jihadi John, the notorious British executioner with the Islamic State, and expressing a desire to travel to Syria. Twice, the teachers referred the boy — a teenager from Blackburn, in northern England — to a government program called Prevent set up to spot early signs of extremism and intervene before it was too late. On both occasions, the boy — struggling with his studies after his parents separated and socially withdrawn because of a degenerative eye disease that blurred his vision — refused to participate in sessions intended to keep him from becoming radicalized.”
International Business Times: France State Of Emergency Extended After Parliament Vote Following ISIS Paris Attacks
“Following approval from the lower house of Parliament or the Assemblée Nationale, the French Senate voted overwhelmingly to approve a law that extended the state of emergency order set to expire Feb. 26 for at least another three months,  according to a tweet  from a reporter with French newspaper Le Monde. The order was first put in place following attacks on Paris last November and it gives law enforcement expanded powers that the government claims will allow for a crackdown on terror cells in the nation. The constitutional change will give the government more power in security situations, and French President Francois Hollande has led the charge on supporting this amendment. Around 75 percent of all members of the lower house abstained from voting, and numbers on attendance in the Senate was not immediately available.”

Washington Post: Pentagon Will Boost Number Of U.S. Military Advisers In Southern Afghanistan
“The Pentagon will deploy dozens of additional U.S. military advisers to southern Afghanistan in coming weeks, a U.S. military official said, part of an effort to rebuild the Afghan army unit that has faced a bloody fight in Helmand province. The advisers will be deployed to train the 215th Corps, the Afghan army unit based in Helmand, the official said. The poppy-rich province was once home to about 30,000 coalition troops and major operations run by U.S. Marines, but nearly all U.S. troops there withdrew by the end of 2014. In recent months pitched battles have been fought there, some of which involve U.S. Special Operations troops working alongside Afghanistan commandos.”

Arutz Sheva: Eight ISIS, Taliban Recruits Joined Galloway Convoy To Gaza
“A brutal ISIS torturer wasn't the only jihadist terrorist who traveled with former British MP George Galloway to Gaza, it has been revealed. According to a recent report, Alexander Kotey left the UK on Galloway's ‘Viva Palestina’ convoy to Gaza in 2009, and from there eventually made his way to Syria to join the Islamic State terror group. The 32-year-old Muslim convert was recently unmasked, along with 31-year-old Aine Davis, as among a group of four British ISIS ‘jailers’ who held western hostages and tortured them brutally, before some were executed by fellow Briton Mohammed Emwazi, a.k.a ‘Jihadi John.’ But he was not alone. As many as eight Muslim extremists who would later be convicted of or involved in terrorist activities joined the convoy, according to The Times. Among them were Amin Addala and Reza Afsharzadegan, both known associates of Emwazi from west London; and Stephen Gray, a former member of the Royal Air Force who attempted to join ISIS.”

“Islamic State (Isis) in Libya has become a threat to all of Europe and western military intervention may now be required, but only so long as the Libyans can first form a coherent national government, Sir Peter Ricketts, David Cameron’s former national security adviser, has warned. Ricketts, who has just ended a stint as UK ambassador to France, said there was a ‘very remote’ chance UK combat forces would be used, and said airstrikes on their own would be of no use. Western powers have been considering whether any military intervention, such as training Libyan security forces, can help prevent Isis gaining a permanent foothold in the oil-rich country.”

Combating Terrorism Financing

Mogaz News: Member Of Parliament Hails Closure Of Terrorist Financing Sources In Saudi Arabia
Mohammed Abdullah Zinedine, a member of the Egyptian Parliament, hailed the decisions taken by the Saudi authorities to close two associations belonging to the international arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. These associations are accused of exploiting donations they receive to finance terrorist operations carried out by the Brotherhood's "Qualitative Committees." The Egyptian politician, in a statement issued Tuesday, stressed that all Arab and Islamic countries should pursue the same approach taken by Saudi Arabia and Egypt in dealing with all Brotherhood-affiliated associations and educational centers. These measures are needed to dry up the Brotherhood's sources of funding after it was proved that many donations are being used to finance terrorist activities.
The Seventh Day: The Money Of Terrorists
There is one question that is always asked in relation to the terrorist operations in Sinai: Who is funding the armed terrorist factions and standing behind them? These groups are executing terrorist operations against Egyptian soldiers in Sinai despite the fact that the Egyptian army is combating them. The answer is simply that the financial resources of terrorist groups are available and plentiful; they are still receiving funds from abroad. Smuggled arms continue to reach them all the way up in central Sinai. This is because they are maintaining ties with other and more deadly groups in Gaza and on the border with Libya.

A Spanish report, quoting security sources, claimed that the two Moroccan females arrested on Sunday by the Spanish authorities, along with five other ISIS suspects, belong to the largest cell ever tasked with supplying ISIS from North Africa and Europe with its logistical needs for the battlefields in Syria and Iraq. The cell-members were detained in Ceuta, Alicante and Valencia. In this context, a source from the Spanish Interior Ministry revealed that the cell members had exploited humanitarian aid activities as a cover to send military equipment to areas of conflict in Iraq and the Levant.

Veto: Brotherhood Dissident: Delivery Of Financial Aid From Terrorist (Brotherhood) To Its Supporters Goes On
Sameh Eid, a dissident Brotherhood leader and researcher on Islamic movements, claims that the group's supporters received a major blow following the cutback in financial aid granted to them. He stressed, however, that the Brotherhood continues to deliver such aid. Eid asserted that Brotherhood-affiliated students at Egyptian universities who had previously received around 2,000 pounds ($256) a month are now getting only 500 pounds ($64). This is because the Brotherhood is having difficulty in fulfilling all its financial obligations to its supporters. The researcher added that this money comes from wealthy Brotherhood financiers in Egypt, as well as funds received from the group's international arm abroad.
Almogaz: Confessions By Those Accused Of Setting Fire To Al-Munib (Police) Station: We Received Funding From The Brotherhood… And Aljazeera TV Documented

Their cases were forwarded to the military court by the Southern Giza General Prosecution Office for Juveniles. During his interrogation a suspect, identified only as "Mahmoud Kh," admitted his involvement in the incidents and his affiliation with the Brotherhood. He also admitted that he and others had received money to carry out their crimes. He disclosed the names of two individuals who had given him the money: Mustafa Hassan and Khaled Rezeq, two leaders of the Brotherhood from the Tersa district of Giza. The suspects also provided details on the delivery mechanism of these funds.

Obama's Not Listening to the Right Muslims

by Tarek Fatah
The Toronto Sun
February 9, 2016
Be the first of your friends to like this.
Obama's conceptualization of Muslims is much like that of the extremist Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
As President Barack Obama's presidential motorcade turned towards the Baltimore Islamic Centre mosque, he could not have missed seeing three Muslim women holding signs protesting his visit.
Standing just a few metres from the mosque were Indian-born American journalist Asra Nomani, Iranian-born human rights activist Nasrin Afzali from Montreal, and Nigerian-born convert to Islam Ify Okoye, who recently left the Islamic Society of Baltimore after giving up on the widespread misogyny she says is practiced at the centre.
Their signs read "Women's Rights in Mosques" and "Separate is not Equal" to highlight the second-class status of women in that particular mosque.
If Obama noticed the protesting women, he did not mention it in his speech. Chances are all three just did not fit the profile of what Obama and the Washington media considers a Muslim—women in tightly wrapped hijabs or bearded moustacheless men in long robes.
President Obama is infatuated with orthodox ultra-conservative Islam.
As far as Obama was concerned, his speech inside the mosque reflected his infatuation with orthodox ultra-conservative Islam that first came to light during his Cairo speech in 2009.
Back then it was the Obama administration that insisted at least 10 members of the banned Islamist group Muslim Brotherhood not only be invited to attend his speech in Cairo, but that they sit in the front row.
In his carefully crafted speech, Obama talked about American Muslims strictly in terms of religiosity. As if there were no Muslim trade unionists or astronauts in America, no dancers or designers. As far as Obama was concerned, only mosques, minarets and hijabs were relevant to U.S. Muslims.

Obama told his Muslim Brotherhood guests in Cairo: [T]here is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders ... the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it."
Fast-forward to 2016. It was as if he was rounding up his presidency exactly where he began—in the arms of the only Muslims he considers Muslim, the misogynist mosque establishment run by America's Islamists. There was no mention of the likes of novelist Khaled Hosseini or the self-funded female space traveller Anousheh Ansari let alone the three protesting women outside.
In his speech Obama validated the Islamist propaganda that Muslims in America are victims of racism and so-called Islamophobia:
[S]ince 9/11, but more recently, since the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, you've seen too often people conflating the horrific acts of terrorism with the beliefs of an entire faith. And of course, recently, we've heard inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim Americans that has no place in our country.
Sabah Muktar was the hijab-clad woman who gave the welcome address to the president who was then greeted by five-year old girls also in hijab, their parents wrapping them up in attire that is both political and a symbol of sexuality.
After the president and the press left, the hijabi women and girls in the mosque were herded back to the back of the bus, segregated, not to be seen or heard.
Nomani went home to hear her president's speech. I asked her how she felt and this is what she had to say:
We are not under attack by the West. We are in a crisis because of the unchecked intrusions of Saudi Arabia's extremist doctrine into the West, called Wahhabi or Salafi jihadi. We need to respond with Muslim reform that advocates peace, human rights and secular governance.
Imagine if it was Asra Nomani who had Obama's ears rather than the hijab-clad women perpetuating their self-inflicted addiction to victimhood. Just imagine.

Canada's Liberal ISIS Strategy Revealed: Politics Trumps Pragmatism

Justin Trudeau led his Liberal party to victory in last October's Canadian federal election by branding himself as the champion of "change" from the decade-old Harper Conservative government that most Canadians wanted to be rid of. "Change" was promised on almost everything; from taxation to environmental policies to new relationships with indigenous peoples and much more.
"Change" was also the message on several international matters with promises to increase the numbers on Syrian refugee resettlement from 10,000 to 25,000 by the end of 2015 and a promise to end Canada's combat mission in Iraq.
The commitment to increase the number of Syrians resettled in Canada was a blatant case of political one-upmanship on Trudeau's political rivals and, as subsequent events would show, it was made without considering the operational realities of what was necessary and if it was even possible. This has been made clear since the election, as the supposed deadline of 10,000 persons resettled by the end of December was missed, the costs of the initiative rose from $250 million to $1 billion and the new arrivals are stuck in hotels as the community readiness and support is not what was assumed.
When it became apparent that the original targets would not be met, the government indicated that to expedite the process, screening would be done post-arrival. Fortunately, the operational people at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) appear to have persuaded new Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale that, to put it mildly, this would be unwise. The result was deployment of Canadian personnel in Lebanon and Turkey to assist in the screening and creation of biographical and biometric data which was shared with the United States for input before approval and departure of the refugees for Canada.
This cross border co-operation was only briefly mentioned, but was confirmed in a Jan. 20 letter from the Canadian ambassador to the United States at Senate Homeland Security Committee hearings into Canada's Syrian resettlement program. In short, appropriate security measures have been taken to address the legitimate concerns created from a politically-motivated policy.
The second major international policy issue on which Trudeau committed to change involves Canada's role in fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The previous government joined the U.S.-led coalition and was contributing six fighter jets for air strikes against ISIS as well as supplying aircraft for reconnaissance, targeting and refueling. Canada also deployed 600 military personnel as part of the joint Iraq Task Force with an additional 69 personnel in a "Train and Assist" mission to help the Peshmerga in the Kurdistan province of Iraq.
A year before the election, Trudeau gained national attention (to put it politely) when he gave a bizarre interview in which he mocked Canada's participating in airstrikes as some kind of macho "whipping out our [fighter jets] to show how big they are." He was rightly mocked for his vacuous remarks at the time but the die was cast and pulling out of the combat mission became Liberal mantra during the election. Once elected, the challenge became how to achieve it without causing serious damage to Canada's international relationships and to maintain some semblance of credibility domestically.
Trudeau made a wise choice in selecting Harjin Sajjat as Canada's new defense minister. Sajjat is a former Vancouver Police officer who also served three tours with the Canadian military in Afghanistan, where he specialized in developing on the ground connections to support intelligence led operations. He has also had to stoically stick to the script that "change is coming" while the details were being worked out and the national media became increasingly skeptical.
On Monday, co-incidentally while Parliament was adjourned, Prime Minister Trudeau, flanked by Minister Sajjat and the less-than-inspiring Foreign Affairs Minister Stephan Dion, released the plan for 'change' in Canada's ISIS strategy.
The specifics of the new Canadian strategy include:
  • Withdrawal of the six Canadian fighter jets from the bombing mission by Feb. 22.
  • Maintaining aircrew and support personnel for one refueling aircraft and up to two aerial surveillance aircraft.
  • Tripling (to 210) the number of Canadian Forces members helping train local ground troops (in Kurdistan).
  • Adding 230 Armed Forces members to the Joint Task Force-Iraq.
  • $840 million in humanitarian assistance over three years.
  • $270 million over three years to "build local capacity" in Jordan and Lebanon to help them deal with refugees.
  • An increased diplomatic presence in the region.
Trudeau's plan got polite "support" from Canada's major international allies, including, most importantly, his intellectual soulmate, Barack Obama. Domestically, there has been recognition of the potential value in helping Jordan and Lebanon financially and in significant "humanitarian assistance" funding, although it will also be advisable to ensure these funds are not used for smartphone upgrades or paying for human smuggling into the European Union.
The biggest question is how these measures can be honestly described as ending a combat mission. Trudeau's claimed moral aversion to bombing in Iraq and Syria apparently doesn't include conducting air surveillance and refueling for other countries to conduct the bombing. It also seems somehow to conclude that expanding the training and assisting of local ground forces to fight ISIS is not part of a combat mission.
It is worth noting that the new policy does not include funding for Turkey, and that the increased military training that is being provided to the Kurds to whom the Turks are openly hostile and who are likely headed towards independence from Iraq and Syria. Stay tuned because nothing is ever certain in the Muddle East.
Domestically, however, "change" can now be claimed in Canada's ISIS strategy as politics has trumped pragmatism.
