The orange-colored states say "no" and the green states say "yes."

Half of America’s 50 governors have rejected President Barack Obama’s plan to relocate 10,000 Syrian refugees throughout the country.

Muslim American groups immediately accused them of “Islamophobia.” Ibrahim Hooper, national communications director of CAIR, told Al Jazeera.

We believe these governors are succumbing to fear and Islamophobia. This is really a non-issue because refugees and immigrants are checked thoroughly by the authorities before entering the US.

In Israel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has stated that Israel is not a position to take in refugees, but Opposition leader Yitzchak “Bujie” Herzog asserted that “Jews cannot be indifferent when hundreds of thousands of refugees are searching for a safe haven.” He did not refer to the risk of terror or the effect on increasing the non-Jewish population in Israel.

Several of the American governors, all of them Republican except for New Hampshire, said they would accept Christian Arabs, prompting President Obama to express his horror at what he called discrimination that is not “American.”

The President said in his speech on Friday night’s Islamic State (ISIS) massacres in Paris:

That is shameful. That is not American. That is not who we are. We don’t have religion tests for our compassion. Pope Francis visited…he didn’t just speak of Christians who are being persecuted…

I was very proud after 9/11 when President Bush] was adamant and declared that is not a war ion Islam….”

Governors’ comments indicated this is a war against terror and not Islam, and since almost all of the terrorists are Muslims, they are not taking any chances.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott wrote in an open letter to President Obama:

Neither you nor any federal official can guarantee that Syrian refugees will not be part of any terroristic activity.

Jeb Bush, one of the leading Republican candidates for the GOP presidential nomination, said that the United States should accept only “the Christians that are being slaughtered.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, also vying for the nomination, stated that there “is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror.”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said:

There may be those who will try to take advantage of the generosity of our country and the ability to move freely within our borders through this federal resettlement program, and we must ensure we are doing all we can to safeguard the security of Americans.

Here is a list of states whose governors said they will not cooperate with federal efforts to disperse Syrian refugees:

Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho;

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine;

Massachusetts,Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey;

North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Only seven states have said they will accept refugees. Only one of them, Utah, has a Republican governor. The six states with Democratic governors are:

Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Washington.

  1. Why do not Muslims in Japan? Let us all learn from that !!!
    By Yossi Agmon | Published: 29/03/2013 04:51
    Opinion: Tell racists, say discrimination, but the Japanese know what they are doing. What is the prevailing opinion in Japan about Islam, and how they go over them Muslims. There is nothing to learn
    Shibuya_tokyo.jpg a Muslim you will not find one at Shibuya, one of the shopping and entertainment complexes most bustling Tokyo

    Have you ever read online that a political leader or prime minister Islamic nation visited Japan?

    Have you ever encountered knowing that the leader of Iran or Saudi prince visited Japan?

    probably not. Japan is a country that maintains itself against Islam.

    How do they do it?

    Japan has strict restrictions on Islam, so Muslims do not ‘die’ to come to Israel rising sun. for example:

    * Japan is the only country that does not grant citizenship to Muslims. Even permanent residence can not be Muslims. Prohibited the dissemination of Islam in the country.

    * Muslims are granted temporary residency 2 strict conditions: they must speak Japanese and undertake to carry out religious ceremonies at home alone. Muslims are not able to establish organizations in Japan, mosques, or to hold religious gatherings.

    * No single university in Japan which teach or learn Arabic or any Islamic language. You will not find ‘Koran’ of Japan, translated or in the original language.

    * Tokyo is the only capital in the world with almost no embassies of Muslim countries.

    Most Muslims living in Japan are employees of foreign companies. Visa applications for doctors, engineers or managers Muslims, made by foreign companies, remote recent years. And Btknoni most Japanese companies, not accepted for employment of Muslims.

    Japan’s government does not hide his views on Muslims and does not consider changing laws that discriminate Muslims.

    The street in Japan also rejects them. Most homeowners evade any way from renting a house or apartment Muslims. Building or neighborhood known that live in Muslim incoming alert. If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim (very very rare) – It will be considered an outcast forever.

    Concludes kumis Yagi University of Tokyo: “The commonly held view in Japan is that Islam is a religion very narrow … and should stay away from it.” Therefore, we have never heard about Islamist terrorist incident in Japan.

  2. ISIS is using the flood of Syrian refugees like a Trojan horse, stealthily entering our country, plotting evil we can’t imagine, all while fully taking advantage of the stupidity of the bleeding heart mentality prevalent in modern liberalism. If we don’t take some serious action to seal off the border, deport illegals already here, and fix our immigration system — you know, by actually doing what it says — it won’t be long until something truly awful happens here too.

  3. Refugees only have that status as long as they’re in countries bordering the conflict zone. Father afield and they become migrants, whereupon there is no requirement for any country to cater to them. Also, refugee centers should be set up in the aforementioned neighbouring states so that they may return once the danger is over. Saudi Arabia and other Arab states that have refused any migrants (while funding groups like al Qaeda/ISIS for years) has offered to build mosques for these ‘refugees’ in Germany at ten times the cost of building refugee centers!

    This is obviously about putting millions more Muslims into Europe, and radicalising them in Saudi funded mosques, but what do you care Jancis. Paris is far away from you.

  5. Maybe a distance away , can you say terrorists will not come here ? If countries in Europe didn’t have people with hearts we would not have our Jewish brothers/ sisters , easy for you as well, yes we need safety measures but not exclude all for the terror caused by a few ,
