I'm new to this forum but I met Armin Navabi at the Non-Con 2015.
Anyway, I'm looking for advice from Muslims/exMuslims about how Canadians should approach the Syrian refugee crisis.
Am I racist/islamophobic for having grave concerns about the competence of Canadian Immigration to fast-track 25,000 Syrian refugees without compromising security?
Is it bigoted to believe that we should favour the more vulnerable ethnic/religious minorities, LGBT, atheists etc. over those who are ideologically aligned with ISIS (believe in death for apostasy/adultery etc.)?
For example: in a desire to help Syrian refugees, the liberal Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC) has, for some unfathomable reason, chosen to partner with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), a Saudi funded, Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas affiliated Islamist organization. Am I misguided for seeing this as very ironic? Doesn't this affiliation guarantee that the sponsored refugees will be ghettoized rather than assimilate and adopt Canadian values?
Furthermore, even if Canada and others manage to admit only the non-radicals, haven't we participated in an ethnic cleansing of the region thus ensuring it's continued failed-state status? Wouldn't it be better for everyone to stabilize the region and make it safer to live in?
Given the current situation, it seems to me that we Canadians (and others) will experience dire unintended consequences of a fast-track refugee policy.
