Angelina Jolie recently lamented the response by the United States to the global immigration crisis.

Jolie said that she was “very disheartened” by what she saw as an underwhelming response by the United States to the global immigration crisis. She singled out Donald Trump and his proposed Muslim ban as an example of “those who promote politics of fear and separation.”

“It has created a race to the bottom,” Jolie wailed, “with countries competing to be the toughest. I have been very, very disheartened by my own country’s response to the situation. To me, America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms, and especially freedom of religion. And so it is hard to hear that this is coming from someone [Donald Trump] who is pressing to be an American president.”

Here we go again!

Angelina Jolie is just another example of a Hollywood star who lacks a fundamental understanding about national security. Angelina Jolie doesn’t get it. Her personal compassion for immigrants and refugees may be legitimate in nature, but she fails to recognize that Muslim terrorists affiliated with ISIS hid among the Syrian refugees entering Europe before making their way to Paris, where they slaughtered 130 people, and Brussels, where they slaughtered 32 people.

Angelina Jolie doesn’t understand that compassion kills and appeasement fails. Those are the twin lessons from Paris and Brussels, where Muslim terrorists took advantage of the immigrant and refugee programs that she embraces in order to slaughter 162 people in the two separate attacks.

It would be refreshing to hear Hollywood stars such as Angelina Jolie show as much compassion for the victims of terrorism as they do for the immigration and refugee programs which enable such terrorism. But that’s probably too much to ask. Instead, we have an administration which wants to flood the United States with tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of Syrian refugees, even though it is obvious to anyone with even half a brain that Muslim terrorists are hidden among them, just as they were in Paris and Brussels, and that they will perpetrate the exact same terrorist attacks in the United States as they did in Paris and Brussels.

But Angelina Jolie and lots of others in Hollywood don’t get it.

They shed lots of tears for the immigrants and refugees.

But none for the victims of terrorism.
