ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Syrians and Iraqis are currently flooding Europe seeking a new life. Following World War II European countries allowed 20 million people from the Middle East and North Africa to enter. These people now number 50 million, and they refuse to integrate into Western societies. Most of the areas settled by these immigrants are depressed and lawless, and the immigrants want to implement Sharia law.

Some European countries are passing immigration laws that allow entry only to Syrian Christians, and Yazidis who are an oppressed minority in Syria. The United States, a country founded on Christian principles, could increase its quotas for Syrians, Iraqis and other Middle East minorities, but we should limit the quotas to the persecuted Christians and small numbers of oppressed minorities such as Yazidis, Kurds, Druze and Bedouins. We have to ensure that any immigrants are not potential radical Islamic terrorists or sympathizers, and they have to be directly encouraged to assimilate into U.S. society. Serious threats to the security of the United States and the Western world are increased due to infiltration of countries and attacks by radical Islamic terrorists.
