    Good ending paragraph.

    One of the organizations that I am supporting is called CYCI; the “Liberation of Christian and Yazidi Children of Iraq. You can find out more about the organization on their Facebook page,

    https://www.facebook.com/CYCIFoundation

    and you can support them by going to their “Go Fund Me” page,

    http://www.gofundme.com/liberationCYCI

    The organization was founded by a Canadian businessman who’s work to save Christian and Yazidi children was motivated by the example of Oskar Schindler. This article describes their work in detail,

    Another great organization which disintermediates the work of charitable giving abroad is called “KIVA.” Kiva allows donors to provide micro loans directly to needy families so that these families can start or expand a small business in an impoverished area. The loans, which can be for as little as $25 are very impactful for the family that solicits them; in many cases, all it takes is a few hundred dollars to get them started on their way. The KIVA loans are all paid back eventually and the donor can re-loan the money to other needy families. KIVA makes loans in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and elsewhere.

      I am a big fan of KIVA…a model of how this sort of thing should be done.

    Sorry. I am not buying it. Everything is not America’s fault.

  • Robert Morris

    Agreed that a lot of this is our fault, but It’s not actually misery that’s sending people here. In fact it’s affluence. This was only recently explained to me, but it makes a lot of sense. The Syrians and Libyans are obviously migrants because of suffering, but many of the Africans are travelling because they are finally rich enough to do so. Most migrants pay thousands of dollars for smuggling services. They are often the hope of their village, and travel on the resources of dozens of households. But the fact that even a village of Africans can scrape together a multiple thousands of dollars is a sign of incredible progress.

    Typical State Department career bureaucrat infuriating drivel. I spent 20 years dealing with the Mr. Meads of the world and invariably they see everything as being America’s fault. America didn’t create Islam and America didn’t cause poverty in these countries. America didn’t create these oppressive regimes and America is not responsible for their oppression.
    And further, why is it America’s responsibility to provide relief for these people? It isn’t.

    The hearts of men, all men, are full of evil. They are evil for their own reasons, and they, and they alone, are responsible for their evil actions. Hold them responsible, do not blame the United States.
