REGARDING CANADA'S SYRIAN REFUGEE POLICY, an aspect which is egregiously avoided and covered up is the geopolitical dimension and motives for receiving refugees preferentially from Syria (and other specific conflict areas).
The government is not doing this primarily to satisfy
its international humanitarian obligations.
Syria under Assad is a
target of vicious US-Canada-NATO-Israel aggression (both direct and by
proxy) that will continue even if Syria survives for-now thanks to
the Russian coalition. In this context, as always, the Syrian refugees
in Canada will be used as instruments: as "witnesses" pressured by many
spoken and unspoken means to be critical of Assad, to not be critical of
NATO, to serve as media sources in the latter, to be spies and
informants, to facilitate manipulations in Syria, etc.! This ugly
dimension of refugee politics is simply not ever mentioned.
the PR message in the very act of receiving Syrian refugees is that we
are saving the refugees from the crimes of our enemies, not from our own
crimes. Otherwise our (Canada's) show of generosity would be both
absurd and disingenuous..., which it is! Indeed, the government and
media are remarkably silent about the 26,000 other refugees that arrive
in Canada every year.
The whole Syrian refugee media and political
campaign is largely a manipulation made to advance the domestic and
allied illusion of a benevolent Canada that is not participating in
continuous war crimes of the US and Israel, and it's wonderful for the
Liberal voter base. But the actual crimes cannot go unnoticed by the
targets of those crimes, and by those of us who are paying attention.
