Poland’s Prime Minister has announced that the country will take in 60 Christian families fleeing the conflict in Syria.
Ewa Kopacz, said on Tuesday that 60 families with children will be brought to the country “for a start”, and more families could potentially follow.
The Washington Post has reported that she also said that a Christian nation should be able to “quickly react” and offer help to Christians being “persecuted in a barbaric way in Syria”.
The decision follows criticism from Andrzej Duda, who won Poland’s presidential election over the weekend, that the government has been too slow in offering help to Syrian refugees.
For months a Polish-Syrian organisation has been asking permission to bring in around 300 Christian families from Syria.
Several European countries have taken in refugees from Syria but most have taken under 100. According to Amnesty International, 3.8 million Syrians have been welcomed in by neighbours Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt.
Now for the News about who the USA is helping
WASHINGTON – The United States is willing to take in Rohingya refugees as part of international efforts to cope with Southeast Asia’s stranded boat people, the State Department said Wednesday.
Spokeswoman Marie Harf said early Thursday Thailand time that the US is prepared to take a leading role in any multicountry effort, organized by the United Nations refugee agency, to resettle the most vulnerable refugees.
In the past three weeks, more than 3,000 people – Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar and Bangladeshis trying to escape poverty – have landed in overcrowded boats on the shores of various Southeast Asian countries. Aid groups say thousands more are stranded at sea after human smugglers abandoned their boats because of a crackdown by authorities.
Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand have been reluctant to let the Rohingya in and have turned boats full of hungry, thirsty people away, because they fear a flood of unwanted migrants. But on Wednesday, they relented.
Ms Harf welcomed the governments’ decision “to uphold their responsibilities under international law and provide humanitarian assistance and shelter to 7,000 vulnerable migrants.” The US would consider requests from the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and International Organization for Migration for funds to help receive and screen refugees as they come to shore.
Ms Harf said that since last Oct 1, the US has resettled more than 1,000 Rohingya.
“I think the Malaysians and the Indonesians have requested some help resettling people. We’re taking a careful look at the proposal,” the spokeswoman told reporters in Washington. “It has to be a multicountry effort. We obviously can’t take this all on ourselves. But we are prepared to play a leading role in this effort.”
Deputy Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will visit Myanmar on Thursday and urge it to cooperate with Bangladesh to help migrants who are adrift. Ms said he would call for Myanmar to improve conditions inside the country for Rohingya.
“The only sustainable solution to the problem is changing the conditions that let them put their lives at risk at the first place,” Mr Blinken, the second-ranking US diplomat, told reporters in Indonesia.
At least 120,000 minority Muslim Rohingya have fled sectarian violence and apartheid-like conditions in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar in the past three years. Myanmar officials refer to the group as “Bengalis” and insist they have immigrated illegally from Bangladesh, even though most have lived in the country for generations.
At our sister organization Rescue Christians we are developing relationships with countries directly, in order to move Christians out of refugee status bypassing the UNHCR who are either slow at best or corrupt in their dealing with the Christian persecuted minority. Over the next six months we hope to report considerable progress in this area and we will inform you as we make this progress. The United States State Department under the leadership of Hilary Clinton and John Kerry have committed the same crime as the State Department did during World War 11, by excluding for the most part the Christians from being given santuary, just like the Jews were betrayed even after the State Department knew of the mass extermination of Jews that was taking place in Nazi occupied Europe.

The days are now here that God is watching us as to who will stand for his people both his chosen and grafted in. As the word of God is clear.
Matthew 25: 31- 46
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[c] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him,[d] saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
