A Great Thing in the World This Christmas: The Canadians Welcoming Syrian Refugees

The Canadian government has taken the lead in welcoming large numbers of Syrian refugees to the country.

Even better, though, thousands of Canadian citizens, often organizing through their churches, have gone above and beyond the government's legal permission to immigrate to help and support the tens of thousands of families fleeing a brutal war.

The West's best response to both brutal tyrannical states and brutal persecuting religious nationalists is this open-arms response to ordinary families.  This is a good work in itself, and our best "hearts and minds" strategy.

And when a fraction of one percent of these "refugees" cross the longest undefended border in the world and kill innocent American citizens, we ought to have a celebration on the South Lawn. Sorry, but at some point, we need to think about the safety of the American people and let the these "refugees" show some heart and take back their own countries from the "brutal tyrannical states and brutal persecuting religious nationalists," instead of turning tail and running for cover.
