Chris Louras, the mayor of tiny Rutland, Vermont, (population 16,400) has colluded with the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP) in a secret agreement to import an open-ended flow of ‘Syrian refugees,’ beginning with 100 in October. The head of the VRRP, Amila Merdzanovic, is herself a Muslim ‘refugee’ from Bosnia, and ardent advocate for socialist/Islamist, Bernie Sanders.
The Boston Globe reports –
Mayor Christopher Louras has unveiled a plan, developed in near-secrecy, to resettle 100 Syrian refugees who fled the onslaught of the Islamic State and are exiled in sprawling Jordanian camps.If approved by the State Department and others, the resettlement would begin in October and gradually send Rutland more Syrian refugees than are currently living anywhere else in New England.
The influx would be a jolt of instant cultural diversity for Rutland, where there are no mosques and no other Syrian immigrants.
Backroom machinations between corrupt local officials, resettlement agencies, government-tied religious organizations, and the State Department have become the modus operandi for the treasonous, big-money business of importing ‘refugees’ from jihadist hotbeds – a practice that is effectively taxpayer-funded Islamic colonization of the West. One need only look to the recent election of the U.S.’s first Muslim-majority city council in Islamized Hamtramck, MI, or the new leftist Muslim mayors of London and Oxford, England, to get an idea of how a seed community grows into a tree-jab that eventually overwhelms the local culture, laws, and populace – the ultimate goal of ‘al-hijra’: jihad by migration.
“Migration is part of the doctrine of jihad. Migration is so important that the Islamic calendar is based upon the Hijra, Mohammed’s migration from Mecca to Medina. Why? Because it was migration that lead to the creation of jihad in Medina. And it was jihad that made Islam triumphant. In the past Muslims tended to stay in Islamic countries. Today, the new politics is to migrate to Kafir lands and immerse themselves in local politics.” – Bill Warner
Ms. Merdzanovic’s tactics are a textbook example of the dangerous insurrectionary nature of many Third World and Islamic immigrants to Western society. She stressed to her unscrupulous co-conspirators, the importance of working in the shadows to keep local citizens unaware of their plans, knowing the inevitable backlash and media coverage could derail her plans.
Months-long discussions about whether to invite the Syrians were limited to the mayor, a small circle of city and business leaders, and a nonprofit resettlement agency. The president of the Board of Aldermen, who knew about the effort, did not tell his colleagues until a day or two before Louras announced the plans at an April 26 news conference.
“There was no benefit to anyone to spread the knowledge,” William Notte, the aldermen president, said in an interview.
The mayor’s strategy of keeping the plan quiet is supported by the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, which is a field office of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. The program’s executive director, Amila Merdzanovic, called the hidden talks “the right thing to do — to move slowly, keep it to a small circle of people, and then expand.”
Merdzanovic, in e-mails obtained by the Rutland Herald, had stressed the importance of secrecy all along.
“I cannot emphasize enough the importance of not sharing the information, even if it is confidentially,” she wrote April 10 to the director of the State Refugee Office.
In an April 14 e-mail to the mayor, Merdzanovic said that her headquarters was worried about scheduling a public forum.
“If we open it up to anybody and everybody, all sorts of people will come out of [the] woodwork,” she wrote. “Anti-immigrant, anti-anything. They suggest that the forum be invite-only but make it as wide as possible.”
In a recent interview with the Rutland Herald, Ms. Merdzanovic gave the coded clues that incoming ‘Syrians’ would ultimately not have assimilation as a goal, but would gladly leach off the American dream, as she herself has done for over 20 years.
“They’re not blank slates waiting to be molded. They come with aspirations, dreams, goals for their children. People want to recreate the life they had and make it even better than the life they had.” – Merdzanovic
In an interesting – yet unsurprising – twist of fate, the foreign policies and military actions responsible for creating the Bosnian and Syrian ‘refugee crises’ can be traced back to the same satanic couple: Bill and Hillary Clinton.
In 1995, President Bill sided with Muslim aggressors in the Bosnian War, using NATO forces and bombers to assist in the destabilization of the Balkans, greatly exacerbating the ensuing refugee crisis. A decade and a half later, Secretary of State Hillary would continue the catastrophic war crimes of her husband, siding with (and arming) Islamic State terrorist groups, and carrying out similar operations in the Middle East and Africa that led to the ‘Syrian refugee’ influx we are witnessing today.
Global Research reports –
In many regards, Bosnia and Kosovo were “dress rehearsals” for the destabilization of the Middle East (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen).
With regard to Syria, the recruitment of jihadists (according to Israeli intelligence sources) was launched prior to 2011 under the auspices of NATO and the Turkish High command in liaison with the Pentagon.
The RCP report reveals how the US administration – under advice from Clinton’s National Security Council headed by Anthony Lake – “helped turn Bosnia into a militant Islamic base” leading to the recruitment through the so-called “Militant Islamic Network,” of thousands of Mujahideen from the Muslim world.
Additionally, according to Refugee Resettlement Watch –
Merdzanovic’s boss is Lavinia Limon who ran the Office of Refugee Resettlement for Bill Clinton.
Is there no national security breach that cannot be traced back to the Clinton Crime Cabal?
Miraculously, there are jobs, ESL education resources, and medical amenities ready and waiting for the Middle Easterners, many of whom are illiterate in their own languages, and carry diseases that were once eradicated in the United States, but are now making a comeback.
Louras claims all the ‘refugees’ will be ‘exhaustively vetted’ – an assertion that has been directly contradicted by FBI Director James Comey in testimony to Congress.
A petition has been started on Change.org requesting Congressional intervention to block the incoming jihadists.
We the People of Rutland City, Vermont, demand that Congress STOP Mayor Christopher Louras from allowing 100’s of Syrian refugees from coming to our home city! Many of the ones he wants to allow into our City will be those that are desperately poor. These are the same people or many of the same who danced in the street celebrating 9/11, the same people who hate us. We have our share of problems within Rutland City and sure do not need anymore. Congress must take action before Rutland ends up like Europe with their refugee problems. Bottom line we cannot afford to take these refugees in.
