Another photograph to look at carefully.

In the photograph below there are 11 people – all Syrian refugees. There are 7 young men. They look reasonably fit to me. There are, as well, one woman, two babies and one young girl. Note the following. First, look at the feet of these travelers. Who is the only person who has NO SHOES. Then determine who among the 8 fully grown persons is carrying the two babies (one in a papoose style carry). Again, note who is carrying the “supply” bag. Finally observe to whose coat the little girl clings. These observations bother me significantly. Do they bother you?

    Where was the picture taken and how do we know these are Syrians?

      The photo was sent to me by someone who follows these issues closely. I cannot personally confirm where the photo was taken or that those photographed are Syrian refugees. (I did check out the photo on Snopes. It wasn’t listed as fraudulent.) But, let’s analyze the photo further. The woman is a Muslim (her dress confirms this to a high degree of probability). The photograph indicates it is winter and not the winter of the middle eastern states or North Africa. The clothing strongly suggests it is in a northern clime. The remainder of the observations speak for themselves. Frankly, I consider it irrelevant whether they are Syrian, Libyan, Saudi, or whether they are “refugees” or just people walking down a wet cold road together. It also doesnt matter where the “road” is.

    I found a few comments that when translated say these are Syrian refugees.

  3. Sorry, didn’t realize linking the google image search site would cause such a mess. Whoops.

    The woman is carrying a child on her back, a baby in front, a small child holding on to her coat, while also carrying a bag of supplies from what looks like the Red Cross. Oh yes…all while barefoot! Nice strapping, young, fighting-age men there walking with her. I say we accept ONLY women and children, and ONLY after we’ve fully vetted the women. Those young men need to stay in their country and fight the aggressors.

    I believe the old women should also remain at home. Only let in the younger women, 25-30, and young children. It is at the old women’s knees that culture is dispensed/force fed to the young. The young women would be more inclined to pay attention to their faces and hair, and finding a husband. Yes, they will get old, but they’re less dangerous in this situation. It is amazing what old women can do to rebuild and carry on. Amazing.

    Oh, and yes, I looked at the shoes right after I looked for the cell phones.

      But did the help come from the young, able-bodied men walking with her????

      • Norah says:

        I believe that women started denying help from men a long time ago, especially here in the Anglo-Saxon countries. The unrealistic expectation that women can do everything without the work of men is elevating the mental and emotional problems of Western women.

  7. Who cares who helped, perhaps she turned down their help……
