World Refugees 101 - What You Need to Know About The World's Refugees


Welcome to "World Refugees 101"

There are over 42 million refugees in the world as a result of wars, genocides, ethnic cleansing, religious persecution, climate change, and natural disasters.

What you will learn here may change your life forever, and not for the better - unless it stirs you with compassion and inspires you to help the masses of world refugees in whatever way you possibly can.

If we do not help, then who will?

Learning all of what I am going to share with you, has made me realize how fortunate most of us really are. I appreciate each and every little thing I am lucky enough to have, including such small things as soap, water, and food. These things are out of reach for about 80 million refugee people in the world, who, through no fault of their own, find these things completely unattainable.

I have been having a difficult time putting the faces of these poor people out of my thoughts, and having trouble sleeping at night, for thinking about them and the horror that is their lives. Auschwitz was nothing, compared to what is going on in the world today, in our own times.

Recently, I became curious about the Iraqi and Afghanistani refugees of war, and wanted to know how many of them there were, and where they were. As I conducted this study, I discovered that there are many, many more refugees than I thought there were.

This article represents a small overview of the results of the research I have been doing on the world's refugees - who they are, where they are from, how many there are, where they are living, why they have been forced into their refugee status, who is helping them, what conditions they are living in, and what their prospects are.

The following is only the tip of an enormous iceberg.

What I have found is alarming - no, shocking and frightening! Why is the media not talking about this? We are not hearing the truth about this. We only hear bits and pieces. No one is putting the stories all together in one place so we can see the reality of how many refugees there are, and how many different wars and civil wars there are.

It's as if we are just supposed to go on as if it were not really happening, or as if it were "normal".

But, this is most definitely NOT normal!

Once you put all the facts and statistics together, it becomes very obvious that all these wars are deliberate, and not coincidental, and that the outcomes have been planned, and even prepared for in advance. It would appear that the fomenting of all these civil wars, genocides, and ethnic cleansings, is a vast, intentional means of subduing these developing countries in order to render their populations helpless, for the purpose of facilitating the imposition of global government.

The "great powers of the world" seem to be doing the very bare minimum to help these people, and seem to want things just "kept quiet". The full reality of what is going on in the world, and the situation that so many millions are in, is certainly not being revealed by mainstream media.

Why are the governments of richer, larger countries not raising their voices in an outcry against all the abuses, genocides, and humanitarian crises occurring? Why will they not help these people?

I contend that it is because they don't care, and because they are complicit and in agreement with it.

As in all cases, much can be learned by "following the money".  Don't forget there are NATO peacekeeping troops in many of these countries, and so they are thus necessarily involved in the military conflicts occurring in these places. There have even been stories accusing UN-affiliated officials of either backing or financing various military factions involved in civil wars, or of making lucrative deals with sub-contractors and enriching themselves off the misery of the refugees forced into the refugee camps.

Also to be taken into serious account, is that various rebel armies receive substantial financial backing from other governments, or from large corporate interests. This is especially true in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where rebel Generals dress and surround themselves in fantastic finery purchased with stolen and donated money, and grandstand outrageously with international peace mediators.

In 2006, the UN gave an estimate of 12 million refugees in the world. Things have become much, much more desperate since then, and are worsening daily.

On June 20, 2009, World Refugee Day, that figure became 42 million. This statistic is misleading, however, as the 42 million cited, are only the refugees that the UN knows about, that are in UN Refugee Camps, and who have registered with the UN and received UN Refugee Cards. The actual number of refugees is probably twice as high. There are many, many millions more refugees who are not interred in the UN camps, and who have not been counted into the UN official refugee figures.

These refugees are all people who have been forced to flee from their homes because of the violence of wars - either invading armies from other countries, or civil wars in their own countries - or they have escaped from genocide, ethnic cleansings, religious persecution, climate change, or natural disasters. They are either "internally displaced" ("IDP", having fled their homes and living as refugees in their own countries) or "externally displaced" (having had to flee to other countries).

They are sleeping in the sand or dirt, on beaches, in makeshift tents, abandoned buildings, in refugee camps, or in jails or prisons. Wherever they are, their living conditions are appallingly unsafe and unsanitary. For the most part, they have no running water to bathe or clean with. They is little or no medical care, and there is no way for their children to go to school.

The only food they receive is what they are given by relief workers in the camps where they are, which is usually only barely enough to keep them alive - often they only receive a couple of cups of grain and a little oil per day.

Most generally, they are treated as prisoners, and are not allowed to leave the camps and move around. They are not permitted to contact family or friends, nor to use any forms of communication like internet, phones, mails, etc. Sometimes this is because it is unsafe to leave the camps, and sometimes it is because the government of the hosting country does not permit them to leave the camps. They are usually not allowed to work to try to earn money to help themselves.

For the most part, they are not allowed to have lawyers, nor to avail themselves of the court systems to petition the governments of the countries where they are for asylum.

Children are separated from parents, husbands separated from wives, and friends and families separated. Often family members are located in separate camps a great distance away from each other. That's if they are lucky enough to get into a refugee camp.

More often than not, after arrival in a country where they seek sanctuary, they are arrested and deported back to where they came from against their will, regardless of whether they are in danger of being killed upon re-entering the country they fled from or not. Family members are separated after being arrested, and are deported separately from each other.

In some countries, the refugee camps are either attacked by terrorist armies who kill all the refugees within, refugee camps are bombed as in Gaza, or the camps are invaded by soldiers who beat, rape, murder, or kidnap the refugees. In many cases, the refugee camps themselves are infiltrated by representatives of rebel factions who coerce the refugees into leaving the camps to fight with them, or even kidnap refugees from the camps to force them into fighting or to enslave them.

In the case of refugees in the Serbian conflicts, hundreds of thousands of women refugees were "punished" for their ethnic group by being raped by the soldiers. There are many thousands of unwanted orphans there now, products of these rapes. Refugee women of Somalia, Darfur, Congo, and other African countries are also being subjected to this terror. In the Congo, young boys are kidnapped and forced to serve as soldiers, or to work as slaves in coal mines or at other hard labor, by the rebel soldiers.

The refugees are charged abusively exorbitant fees for any legal help or permits by the governments of some countries, and for any extra privileges or favors. In a few countries, refugees are used by the governments as slave labor and are not paid for their work. In Malaysia, refugees are even sold on the slave markets - or in the case of the Falun Gong in China, they are used as involuntary organ donors.

Many refugees have been living in displacement camps for many years - some as many as 10-20 years or more, and their situations are beyond hopeless. Often, they have been forced to go from country to country, or have been moved from one camp to another and another, depending on safety issues at the camp locations due to armed conflicts breaking out, if there is not enough water, or when the housing facilities have outlived their limit for usefulness. (Most refugee tent housing has a life span of only about 10 years.)

Hundreds of thousands have lived much of their lives in the camps and have necessarily become resigned to their sub-standard existences and "statelessness". A great many who live in the refugee camps were born in the camps, and have never known anything else. Once they are in the camps, it is sometimes extremely hard to get out of them and get repatriated and resettled elsewhere.

There are few countries that will accept asylum-seekers, and if they do, they accept only a very few, compared with the millions who are so desperate to become citizens with rights, and not "stateless". Their fates are completely dependent on politics, treaty results, and international asylum agreements. They are also at the mercy of the hosting country as to whether or not they are permitted to approach the courts for asylum petitions. Also, they may have to remain in the camps for many years while they are waiting for their own countries to decide whether to permit their re-entrance into their homelands.

Life within the refugee camps is very dangerous and uncomfortable, to say the least. Not only are the refugees in danger of being attacked and murdered by armies, raped or beaten, but there is much crime and violence within the camps themselves. Some camps have tens of thousands of people living in them, and bitter rivalries break out between camp internees, or the stress and hardship of living in the camps occasions internal violence and crimes such as robberies, assaults, and rapes.

Living conditions in refugee camps are appalling - there is usually either no water, not enough water, or the water is contaminated. The camps mostly lack facilities for the proper disposal of waste and sewer. Many refugee camps lack electricity and proper cooking facilities, and internees are forced to cook and heat their tents with coal provided by relief agencies, or even with animal manure procured on their own from goats or sheep, which contributes to the general unsanitary conditions of the camps.

All of this, along with the crowded conditions, the malnourished state of the refugees, and the lack of proper medical care and medicines, often results in outbreaks of disease such as cholera and other life-threatening infectious diseases. The chronically ill and disabled find it especially difficult to live in the camps.

The world's refugee situation does not appear to have any chance of improving in the near future. Fresh outbreaks of violence seem to spring up daily. Recent earthquake disasters (HAARP?) in Sumatra, American Samoa, Haiti, and Chile, and the alarming new and devastating violence in the civil war in Pakistan, in which many hundreds of thousands more Pakistanis have been displaced, as well as new violence in Somalia and Yemen, does not bode well for the future of the world's most vulnerable.

My heart bleeds for these people. I don't care what mainstream media says or doesn't say. I don't care what the government says. I don't care if everyone around me pretends they don't notice what is happening. I know what I myself feel when I read the stories of the refugees, and when I see the misery in their faces.

I feel a terrible despair and the most all-encompassing compassion for their plights, and a deep grieving inside, for all of humanity.

These are human beings. They deserve all the same basic rights that any human being deserves anywhere. They deserve those rights regardless of race, national origin, religion, or political affiliation. They deserve to have food, water, hygiene, homes, electricity, heat, freedom from abuse, education, and the opportunity to earn a living. Most of all they deserve to be safe and live with dignity.

I don't know what can be done to help all these people. I don't know how we can stop the raging, Satanic, murdering machine of the NWO, global government, and marauding military madmen. I do know that wherever, and whoever these people are, they certainly deserve our thoughts, our help, and our compassion, as fellow human beings.

There, but for the Grace of God, go we ourselves. Who is to say that it won't happen here in the United States before it's all done and over with?

I am sending thoughts of love and caring to all of these refugees, no matter where they are. And I am praying for them all, whoever they may be. There is little else I can do for them due to my own straitened circumstances, and God is the only one who can help them all. I pray that He does.

Thank you for reading this, and I hope that you will pray for these people, as I am doing.


(These statistics have been painstakingly pieced together from many different sources - they may not be current, nor entirely accurate, and also, there are many refugees whose numbers and whereabouts are unknown, due to lack of reporting entities, or to the severity of the violence in the areas where they are, which prevents relief agencies from reaching them. The numbers are constantly changing - often UN refugee camps are closed down suddenly, or moved to other locations as a result of unsafe, violent conditions.)

To Barack Obama: Thank You For Giving Me a Small Bit of Hope

March 23, 2010 - President Barack Obama
signs revolutionary new Health Care Bill

Today, President Barack Obama signed HR 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, an historic piece of legislation that will expand health insurance coverage to include millions of Americans, and stop some of the worst health insurance industry practices.

To Barack Obama:

To Mr Obama, my response is that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am very ill and unable to work. I have gone without medical, dental, and vision care for the past 6 years. Thanks to you, hopefully now I will be able to get Medicaid and be able to see a doctor, and also get my medications. If Senators Mitch McConnell & Bunning are not allowed to outlaw the new Bill in my state of Kentucky, that is. They are certainly doing their best to make sure Kentuckians will continue to go without health care.

To those who don't know: Barely ANY job offers health benefits in the state of Kentucky, Medicaid coverage is severely limited, and there are no free health care clinics, only ones that assess for WIC and give mammograms, and do nothing else.

Can you please work on faster and more efficient processing of Disability Claims in the Social Security Administration? I have been waiting for 2 1/2 years this go around, and been told it may be another whole year of waiting with no income and no medical care before I get an ALJ hearing. I can't survive much longer - I have already lost my home and am homeless and doing without medical care and all my medications.

All who are bad-mouthing Mr. Obama: Why are you so against human beings receiving medical care? What is wrong with you, anyway? You had no problem giving crooked bankers trillions, and trillions more to kill innocent people in the Middle East. You are a shame to humanity and need to grow some compassion. America will advance despite your idiocy.

Yes, maybe there are some things about this Bill that are not right - I don't like the part about penalizing people for not buying Health Insurance, either, and it probably IS unconstitutional. But the only reason it is there, is because the health insurance lobbyists, and the Republican recipients of BIG BRIBES PUT it there!

The bill provides for sliding-scale subsidized health care plans for those who earn from $14,000 to $36,000, and you will be able to get AFFORDABLE health insurance. And those earning less than $14,000 will get Medicaid that has been denied to single people with no children and under the age of 65 forever. Why would you NOT avail yourself of health insurance under these greatly improved conditions? You would have to be stupid not to.

To those who are already able to pay high health insurance premiums: this does not affect you in the slightest so what are you complaining about?

Finally, finally! There will be health care for America's poor and sick.

God Bless You, Mr. Barack Obama. I had almost lost hope. But now I have a little. Thanks to you, hopefully I will not be forced to DIE because of a lack of medical care and my essential medications that I need to live.

Thanks for giving me my life back. I apologize for not trusting you.

To the rest of you: You are all spitting into the wind, and get over it!

Message to Law Enforcement Officials, Military, and Other Public Servants



United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office:

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

Officer Jack McLamb of Oathkeepers Talks About Martial Law:

Are you a sheriff, police officer, a member of the Military, the National Guard, a firefighter, or a veteran?

Are you feeling confused about the changes going on at your job? Are you frustrated with the way things are being done, and angry at the things you are being told you have to do? Are you uncomfortable with your job nowadays? Do you find it disturbing that you are seeing violations of the Constitution around you every day?

Go look at it and learn. Hopefully, you will join them. If you truly want to serve your country and the American People, that is exactly what you will do!

Here is the reason why you are so disoriented and frustrated:

America has been hijacked by corporate crooks and international bankers. You are part of a military and a prison industrial complex, a corrupt fascist corporate system, and a tool of the New World Order.  Learn about the Communist United Nations and its plan for a one world government (or "New World Order") here:

Our police in this country are being trained in riot control and urban combat by members of private military contracting companies (Blackwater-XE, Dyncorp, etc, etc), training intended to be used against the American People.

(Please see:

The administration and training of our law enforcement agencies has been taken over by DHS and by private mercenary contracting companies (hired military killers) that do not answer to the American People, nor are they bound by an oath to the US Constitution.

Have you ever heard of Rex 84, Operation Garden Plot, or Operation Cable Splicer? Are you aware of the FEMA camps and "emergency detention centers" being built in this country?

Please take a moment to read:

HR 645 - National Emergency Centers Act

FEMA NSPD 51/HSPD 20 Presidential Directive for Continuity of Government 

Rex 84 - Operation Garden Plot - Our Government's Plans for Us:

What is this?

Seattle Cops
Seattle Cops

Jeremy Scahill: Blackwater - Shadow Army

There is something very wrong with the fact that our government is paying private military contracting companies to train and administer our law enforcement and military. There is also something very wrong that the new "Department of Homeland Security" has been given so much power and authority to dictate to our local law enforcement agencies.

Have you not noticed how DHS is taking over your police department? You have undoubtedly been obligated to participate in training from this organization. What did it consist of? Perhaps it was riot control, urban combat, and how to transport citizens to another location? Was it perhaps ever suggested that your agency should come up with a plan to provide for mass deaths by a pandemic or other catastrophe? Have you never wondered about this?

Ask yourself this one question: Who does the DHS answer to?
And then answer this question: What oath do they take?

Perhaps you are now beginning to see what is wrong with this picture.

Although I know you are probably already aware of this, please see examples of how DHS has infiltrated our law enforcement agencies here: and here: and here:

Why? Did you ever wonder why it is ok for our government to use a private army like Blackwater/Xe Services, which is not responsible to the American People themselves?

Hitler used to have his own private army, too.

Are you also wondering why it's now common for the Military to be deployed in civilian scenarios even though the Posse Comitatus Act prohibits it?

Who authorized it? Did we?

Are you aware of this bill recently signed into law by Pres. Obama?

Obama Establishes Council of Governors Via Executive Order: “Synchronization and Integration of State and Federal Military Activities in the United States

Are you working to please the organization you are employed by, or are you working for the American People? Where are your priorities? Are they with the corrupt system you work for, or are they with the people you are supposed to protect?

Here is a frightening thing to think about:

The USA has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of the world's prison population. We have the largest prison population of any other country in the world, even more than China, the biggest communist country in the world, or Russia.

Why is that?

Has everyone suddenly gone nuts and everyone is a criminal now? Hardly plausible. Though there have always been criminals, not everyone has suddenly turned into a terrible dangerous crook. What has changed is not the people, but the system itself.

Our federal government has infiltrated itself into every aspect of private civilian life, limiting, regulating, fining, taxing, spying on, and regimenting every possible area of our lives. The DHS has gone so far as to say that all Americans who believe in the Second Coming of Jesus, defend the Constitution, and like Ron Paul, are terrorists! And are warning law enforcement officials to "be on the look out" for these people.

Here's another question for you: Do YOU believe that Jesus is coming back and that the US Constitution should be defended?

Here is what your government thinks of those of us who believe in Jesus and the Constitution:

Campaign for Liberty: You are now considered a terrorist!

They want to tell us where to walk, what to eat and drink, whether or not we can smoke, what we can say, what we can read, what we can believe in, and where we can go, etc, etc. They even want to tell us how to grow our gardens, and what nutritional supplements we can use!

Please investigate HR 875 and how the government will control your food supply.
And learn about S 3002, John McCain's disgustingly stupid nutritional supplement bill 


Especially egregious are the abuses resulting from the "War on Drugs", which is a failed war. It is absurd to make plants "illegal". The only reason it's being done is to harvest more inmate "fodder" for the jail and prison populations, so the private corporations which now run all our jails and prisons can make more money off the misery of already vulnerable addicts who are not able to defend themselves. Using a substance of choice in private does not constitute a menace to society, nor are these people "dangerous criminals" who deserve to have their entire lives, families, and livelihoods destroyed.

The "War on Drugs" has not deterred substance abuse in the slightest, nor has it stopped the flow of drugs on our streets. The only thing it has done is cost us all hundreds of billions of dollars and cut a wide swath of social destruction.

Roughly 85% of all those in prisons have committed no violent crime. Entire families and lives have been destroyed because of what they choose to ingest or smoke, or because of minor crimes. All of us have been affected by the destruction - we all know someone, or have someone we are close to, who is in prison and whose lives and families have been destroyed forever.

There is no justice anymore in the courts. It does not matter if you are innocent or guilty anymore. If you are innocent, there is no way you can prove it. It's all "Let's Make a Deal", with people forced to plead guilty just so they can get out of jail and go home. You are damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

Our jails and prisons are run by corporations whose only interest is profit, and are cesspools of medical neglect, privation, and brutal abuse. It is no secret anymore.

We all know that people unlucky enough to be sent to jail or prison are subjected to heinous deprivation, lack of medical attention, degradation, physical, mental, and verbal abuse, torture and beatings, and are treated worse than animals. There is no "rehabilitation" nor any help for these people. There is only a nightmare of abuse and degradation. And when they finally get released, their lives are over and destroyed forever. They can no longer get any job, and they can no longer find a home to rent, because a criminal record found in the background checks required before we can do anything at all anymore nowadays prevents them from reintegration back into society. So they end up homeless, thrown into the streets, where they are obligated to commit more crimes just to survive.

We can no longer count on law enforcement officials to protect us. On the contrary, every day we are treated to new images of police officers tasing and killing young children, little old ladies, and helpless people in wheelchairs, or tasing people who don't jump fast enough or high enough, who don't answer a question fast enough. Or if they are not tasing people for the slightest provocation, then they are beating the hell out of little kids, women, and people who are handcuffed or in wheelchairs, and can not defend themselves. And male officers are even forcefully strip-searching female prisoners!

Are you aware that the United States locks up babies and children in prisons in Taylor, Texas, as well as at many other detention centers in the United States? Yes, it's true - they do.

Look here: "The United States Locks Babies Up In Prisons"

What is going on, anyway? How can you justify these atrocious violations?

I recently read an article written by a law enforcement officer, who complained because his superior ordered them to stand down and not stop and search people in a certain 4 block area, and he was angry because he "couldn't arrest more people" and "make more money for the city".

What are you people planning on doing? Stopping everybody you see and strip-searching them and running them through the database to see if they have warrants? Pulling over every car in America to see if papers are in order and there are no "illegal" materials in their cars? Are you going to keep going until you have put every American in jail?

C'mon, man! If you are not seeing a crime in progress, or called to help a victim, or for some other emergency, then you have no business detaining people, searching, and harassing them.

I guess charging everybody with needless drug-related or other non-violent "felonies" is one way of disarming America, isn't it? All those harmless weed-smokers who have felonies on their records are no longer able to possess a firearm, are they? How will they be able to defend themselves in a national emergency or if our government turns on us?

Think about it...

This is America. We have rights!!!

Being able to walk down the street without being harassed by the bullies in blue is one of them. Being free from illegal searches and seizures is another one. The right to not have our property seized and stolen from us is another. Or how about the rights to freedom of speech, and the right to freely and peaceably assemble, and to petition the government for redress? How about the Posse Comitatus Act, which prevents the US Government from using the Military against its own citizens?

And what about the right to be free from abuse and torture, and from illegal surveillance? The right to Habeas Corpus and the right to legal representation, which have been severely hampered by the Patriot Act.

Please refresh your memory by reading the US Constitution

You have forgotten who you work for. You work for the American People. And the American People want you to protect and uphold the US Constitution. We want you to protect and uphold the US Constitution so badly and so fervently, that for only the third time ever in the history of the United States, we have organized a convention of the Continental Congress to ensure that this is done.

What Do Iraq War Veterans Think?

The following video by Iraq War Veteran Mike Pryzner pretty much sums it all up beautifully. I urge you to listen to what he has to say about the Iraq War and our government. Even if you don't watch any of the other videos here, please do watch this one.
