Open you eyes America; Paris is foreshadowing of what's to come

To The Daily Sun,

Hijra is the Arabic word for mass migration to spread Islam.

Brigitte Gabrielle is a Lebanese Christian whose family was abused in Lebanon, because they were Christian, and eventually had to escape. She knows first hand what it's like to live in a Muslim country, being an infidel. She is taking her message all over the world to warn others what is coming. She has formed an organization called Act for America which can be found online, and lets people know how to contact their representatives regarding the refugee immigration problem in our country.

She says, "A refugee invasion is currently taking place in Europe and transforming the continent into Eurabia right before our very eyes.

Each day we see more of the devastating impact that hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees are having in welcoming countries. Many of these "refugees" are neither Syrian nor refugees. Many of them do not even speak Arabic, cannot tell you where they came from in Syria, and have no official documents. They make up their own names and there is no way to accurately vet them.

They are Afghans fleeing the Taliban, Eritreans fleeing their own oppressive government, and many thousands more hail from Iraq, Pakistan, and sub-Saharan Africa.

This is but a foreshadowing of what will take place in our nation soon, if our government is foolish enough to follow suit — and President Obama and his administration already have announced plans to increase the number of refugees accepted by the U.S. to at least 100,000 next year.

We must stop this insanity. If the citizens of this nation band together to speak a resounding "NO" to our elected officials — we can."

I urge you to check out her website; Act for America, and open your eyes.

Peggy Graham
