Video: Obama Likens Syrian Migrants to Jewish WWII Refugees (VIDEO)


obamaPresident Barack Obama on Tuesday compared Syrian refugees to Jews who sought to escape the Nazis.

“In the Syrian seeking refuge today, we should see the Jewish refugee of World War II,” Obama said at a naturalization ceremony, held at the National Archives Building in Washington, DC.

The president spoke about the US being a welcoming society and how immigrants and refugees “revitalize and renew” America. He also compared the current influx of immigrants to the waves of German, Scottish, Irish and German immigrants of the past. “In the Muslim immigrant today, we see the Catholic immigrant of a century ago,” he said.

The naturalization ceremony, held on the 224th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, featured 31 newly sworn American citizens from more than 25 countries. The ceremony comes after at least 24 Republican governors have vowed to ban the entry of Syrian refugees into their states. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump also called for a ban on the entry of all Muslims into the US.

  1. OMG, what a moron. Yeah, it’s exactly the same. When the Jews were trying to escape from Europe, there were many terrorists hiding among them – trying to infiltrate the U.S. to kill us.

  2. If the United States were to view the Syrian “refugees” in the same way it viewed Jewish refugees during Word War II, it would deny the Syrians entry into the country just as it refused to grant asylum to Jews during World War II.

  3. You can’t compare. All those immigrants came with intention of integrating into American society and enhancing their own and all other Americans’ lives. Syrians are Moslems and they have a “chazakah” of NOT integrating, NOT enhancing their own or any other people’s lives, and l’hefech, on the contrary, do everything they can to pull everyone else down into their living “gehennom.” But what can you expect from Barak HUSSEIN Obama?

  4. Why MUST the Kenyan always bash America at every opportunity he gets? Again, he MUST drudge up slavery. What a degenerate. Instead of thanking America for making him the first black President (after Bill Clinton), he MUST try to create racial divide. Listen after the 1:01 mark of the recording.

  5. Our President is right, Islam is a religion of peace just as Judaism is. It’s his duty to open the doors of this country to all persecuted minorities, just as FDR did for us when we needed it!
