My post resurfaced. I will use it to give due credit to photographers and insert certain links.

This demonstration took place in Britain, in front of UK Primer Minister David Cameron’s home. It surprised me!

The Migrants

At any rate, I am discussing the migrants. Their situation is alarming. For some, death would be merciful. Even if he is a Walamite (Shia Islam rather than Sunni Islam [he majority]), Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should look after his people and not allow this vast exodus. Where will they go?

In Germany, migrants have screamed that they would kill Germans who did not let them in. However, other refugees are asking to be killed. These are desperate people and we know who is forcing them to find a new home. They had a home in Syria, as did the Jews in Europe.

Knitters

Before the end of the year, Quebec is welcoming 3,650 Syrian refugees. The province has a program for helping immigrants and, consequently, the same program can be used to help refugees.

Quebec knitters are knitting tuques to keep the newcomers warm and the movement has spread to several provinces, but Canadians are worried.

Summary

In my post, I suggested that Isis, a terrorist organization I do not associate with either Shia Islam or Sunni Islam, is attacking on two fronts. It is attacking the United States and members of the US-led coalition. France was its last target. But Isis is also depriving millions of their home.

I do not think I will publish the post that disappeared. This one tells that we are caught between the proverbial “rock and a hard place.”

What is Bashar al-Assad doing?
