We, the undersigned, call upon the Isle of Man Government to reconsider offering to take a fair share of Syrian refugees fleeing war and persecution through the UK's Syrian Vulnerable Person's Resettlement Scheme. This would mean a commitment of approximately 25 refugees coming to live here by 2020. (There are individuals and companies on the Island who have offered enough housing, resources & support services for far more than the 25 refugees we are asking for. This is an opportunity for the Isle of Man to show that, as a mature and responsible society, we are willing to offer sanctuary to innocent victims of war and persecution.) PETITION IS NOW CLOSED - Together with paper signatures we have over 1000 supporters and we will be handing in the petition early in 2017. THANK YOU !

    This is insanity! Pathetic liberal signalling encouraging 'refugees' from far off into our nations will destroy our nations and our culture. The widespread and horrific consequences are already apparent throughout Europe and America - you people are creating conditions where refugees are increasingly hated with violent passion! The whole concept of refuge,and hospitality is being undermined and belittled in the rush to destroy indigenous European populations and culture.

    This petition asks the IOM to help just a small number of refugees, it is the very least we should be doing. We live in a beautiful safe place that should be a place of healing and refuge for people - particularly children - traumatised by war and loss.

    We MUST do more to help these poor people, 'there but for the grace of God' as they say...

    It is the right thing to do. The IOM is a beautiful place filled with considerate caring people. We can not stand by whilst so many do without
