Is the United States REALLY going to do this even though history says we should not?

There is a great amount of rhetoric floating around over the Syrian Refugees due to the terrorist attacks in Paris last week. The questions being asked are should the United States take them in? Should we block them? Should we pay to keep them where they currently are? Should we make sure our European allies keep taking them in?
The people of the nation's of Europe already knew the trouble that they were in because they understood the danger that was around them. German citizens have been marching and protesting about the continued open border policy of Merkel. The Swedish people are demanding that their government begin sending many of the Middle Eastern Refugees and Immigrants back to where they came from. Hungary along with other Eastern European nations are building border fencing to keep the migrants, immigrants and refugees at bay.
But still most European politicians as well as the politicians here in the United States, seem to think that they need, no, they must accept these refugees as a show of good will and to extend the hand of friendship to the Middle East. Paris proved to us that there is no extending a hand of friendship. There is no way to convince the Islamist to lay down their weapons and live in peace because they are not taught or raised in such a fashion.
The Islamist hates the West and the East and everything we stand for and believe in. They have sworn to destroy and defeat everything we hold dear in the name of their god, Allah. The French government has begun to see this issue in its true light because French President Hollande closed his countries open borders after the recent Paris terror attack. But, alas, it may be too late.
Unfortunately, the United States is following the same road that France and much of Europe has already taken. For example, The Boston Marathon Bombers were just two of many such refugees that have been caught committing or planning to commit such violence against Americans on American soil yet The United States still wants to welcome The Syrian Refugees.
Only a nation that has a death wish would allow their arrogance to supersede their wisdom because the greatest of nations often are not defeated by their enemies from the outside. A nation is often defeated or doomed when they let the enemy inside in the guise of friendship.
The Trojan horse is more than a historical fact because it is a warning that time and time again, men have failed to remember. Do we really wish to go down that road of self-destruction or will be wise and learn from the mistakes of the pass and set aside our feelings for logic and fact?
If we as a people choose unwisely, then you cannot blame those of us who have been shouting from the mountain top that letting in the enemy is not a wise thing to do. It is not un-American nor is it anti-Christian to refuse to take in those who you believe will someday turn on you and kill you or your fellow citizens.
Frankly, I will not be remembered by history as one of those who destroyed the United States simply because he was ignorant and foolish. How about you?
