Democratic and Republican US senators called on Tuesday for the country to take in more of the millions of people forced from their homes during Syria's nearly three-year civil war.
Only 31 Syrian refugees - out of an estimated 2.3 million - were allowed into the United States in the fiscal year that ended in October.
At a Senate hearing a week before an international donors conference in Kuwait, US officials and senators discussed the crisis in Syria, and the burden of housing hundreds of thousands of refugees for neighboring countries such as Jordan and Lebanon....
Penny, I have never denied this was the Church Age. My pastor doesn't deny it either. It has to be recognized though,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The promises made by God in what is commonly referred to as the Abrahamic Covenant can only be fulfilled in the nation of Israel, the physical descendents of Abraham. God alone is the One responsible for fulfilling the covenant having made it unconditionally and unilaterally with Abraham.
Other nations who are Gentiles may benefit by association with the nation of Israel through the blessings promised in what the Bible calls the New Covenant. The fullness of the blessings to Gentiles will not be fully realized until Israel repents and receives their Messiah....
Jim, the salvation of Christ is not about race. many evangelicals seem to be working lock step with the NWO. by locking up revelations for the future they neglect to see the spirit of the age as exemplified in this article.
I like Canadians, Mike, though I wish sone of these "Northern carpet baggers" like Cruz would have stayed there. Many of the Palestinian nominal Christians have already went to Latin America,e.g., one of the wealthiest men in the world is the owner of the Mexican telephone Co., an ex-Lebanonese "Christian." So?
Ah, something that might interest Penny, which is why I got on here, Was Jesus a Palestinian? Only thing wrong with the article, is that Jesus didn't have blue eyes.

You don't like Canadians either? Who do you like? Other than the president, I mean. As for your opposition to letting in "so called Christians," it is you who constantly reminds us that this is not a Christian nation. You really have to get your ducks lined up, Jim.
I don't know how you got that idea, Mike of NY? So I guess I'll have to elaborate. First the United States was giving money and training to "moderate" rebels of Syria. The Al Qaeda types, have taken control of some areas of Syria and the again moderate Muhammadans are even fighting with them. As I said, the government is trying to disentangle itself from this tar baby.
No, Rand Paul doesn't even want to support Israel, but then he is unfortunately a carbon copy of his father, which was/is Too Close to Kooky. So I was complaining about his overall ideas on isolationism which is of the pre-World War II variety.

So you disagree with Rand Paul because he says we shouldn't support jihadists. Ok then.
Jim, they are quiet because foreign countries would not go along with debacle and neither the American people and were horrified to see him posing with them and calling them freedom fighters, but as we can see from news, the jihadists continue, so what is the agenda that is so important and yet is not spoken? I'm getting more and more curious?

I'm curious your opinion, as last year I heard Rand Paul urging, well it must have been fellow Senators, at committee not to fund the rebels (jihadists) in Syria? they replied, I do remember a republican speaking up and saying that they believed we had an agenda there that made it imp we continue inside?
Penny, where did you ever get the idea that Syria didn't take the advice of a Western country? For one thing, Russia has always considered itself, or better under Putin has reconsidered itself the protector of orthodox religion. I can tell you they get a lot of advice from them. Most of the foreign money, is coming from Saudi Arabia--remember 9/11?--Hardly a country for all its pretenses to being friendly to Christianity. I will say considering the messes that we left in Iraq and Afghanistan, we should be hesitant about getting involved with Muhammadan countries. So you didn't like, the semi-humorous, One State Solution? It is only semi-humorous because it presented the truth in a humorous way.Israel is the only country, where Christianity has grown. The Christians who support the Palestinian's evil cause seem to forget, The Beleaguered Christians of The Palestinian-Controlled Areas.
Sure,more people who will see government as lord and savior and their will,the article mentions the "burdens" of countries like Jordan and Lebanon...oh my we must do something double quick....notice it said democrats and republicans,they are two sides of the same destroy America coin.
Jim, the last thing Syrians need is us giving them help and advice, they did much better when we giving neither. the CHristians are telling tales of sharing the gospel, taking the opportunity of suffering to do so and how muslems have come in their way to help out, its the travelling jihidists paid for by foreign internl money that are cutting hearts out of little ones, and cannibalizing and all? seeing your one state solution, is it not possible that your agenda is also more important than the lives of the "nominal" as you call them -- after all we have "God's business" to attend to... just makes me wonder, how we are different from the Muhammadans???
Especially, Penny, if these are Muhammadans, and not even nominal Christians. So, I have a lack of enthusiasm as you do. Perhaps if they're decent enough people we can pay for their both fair to Latin America?--If they are nominal Christians.it is about time the Muhammadans start taking care of their own and clean up their own messes.
