Good morning everyone.This past week we've seen the best and the worst of humanity.The heinous terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut, in Iraq and Nigeria.They showed us once again the depths of the terrorist's depravity.

大家早上好。上个星期,我们看到了人性中最善良和最丑陋的一面。穷凶极恶的恐怖分子袭击了巴黎、贝鲁特、伊拉克和尼日利亚。他们再次向我们展示了恐怖分子毫无底线的罪恶本质。
And at the same time we saw the world come together in solidarity.Parisians opening their doors to anyone trapped in the street, taxi drivers turning off their meters to get people home safety, people lining up to donate blood.These simple human acts are a powerful reminder that we cannot be broken and in the face of terror we stand as one.In the wake of these terrible events, I understand the anxiety that many Americans feel.I really do.I don't dismiss the fear of a terrorist bomb going off.There's nothing President Obama and I take more seriously though, than keeping the American people safe.
与此同时,我们也看到全世界人民团结一致的精神。巴黎市民敞开家门接纳每一位受困的人,出租车司机免费送人们去到安全的地方,人们排起长队献血救助伤者。这些简单的举动让我们注意到,面对恐怖袭击,我们众志成城,我们不会被击倒。面对这些恐怖袭击事件,我很理解很多美国人所产生的焦虑和不安。真的。我不能完全消除将恐怖分子袭击带来的恐惧。但对奥巴马总统和我而言,没有什么事情比保证美国人民的安全更重要了。
In the past few weeks though, we've heard an awful lot of people suggest that the best way to keep America safe is to prevent any Syrian refugee from gaining asylum in the United States.
前几个星期,我们听到很多人提出可怕的建议,他们认为保证美国安全最好的方式,就是不要在美国境内为叙利亚难民提供避难所。
So let's set the record straight how it works for a refugee to get asylum.Refugees face the most rigorous screening of anyone who comes to the United States.First they are finger printed, then they undergo a thorough background check, then they are interviewed by the Department of Homeland Security.And after that the FBI, the National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Defense and the Department of State, they all have to sign off on access.
那我们就直接谈谈如何有效管理,在为难民提供避难所的同时保证我们的安全。我们对进入美国的难民进行了最为严格的审查。首先要记录他们的指纹,并进行详细的背景审查,国土安全部还要对他们进行面试。此后,FBI、国家反恐中心、国防部以及国务院都要加入审批流程并签字。
And to address the specific terrorism concerns we are talking about now, we've instituted another layer of checks just for Syrian refugees.There is no possibility of being overwhelmed by a flood of refugees landing on our doorstep tomorrow.Right now, refugees wait 18 to 24 months while the screening process is completed.And unlike in Europe, refugees don't set foot in the United States until they are thoroughly vetted.
为了解决大家对由此带来的恐怖威胁的关注,我们还特意对叙利亚难民增加了一道检查。因此,未来不会出现大批难民涌入的可能。现在,难民需要等待18-24个月,审查才会结束。与欧洲不同的是,只有通过彻底检查的难民才能进入美国本土。
Let's also remember who the vast majority of these refugees are: women, children, orphans, survivors of torture, people desperately in need medical help.
我们要记住,这些难民中绝大部分是妇女、儿童、孤儿、受尽折磨的幸存者以及急需医疗救治的人。
To turn them away and say there is no way you can ever get here would play right into the terrorists' hands.We know what ISIL – we know what they hope to accomplish.They flat-out told us.
把他们赶走,告诉他们想到这里来门都没有,正好中了恐怖分子的下怀。我们都了解ISIL是什么,我们都知道他们的目标是什么。他们已经明确告诉我们了。
Earlier this year, the top ISIL leader al-Baghdadi revealed the true goal of their attacks.Here's what he said: “Compel the crusaders to actively destroy the gray zone themselves.Muslims in the West will quickly find themselves between one and two choices.Either apostatize or emigrate to the Islamic State and thereby escape persecution.” So it's clear.It's clear what ISIL wants.They want to manufacture a clash between civilizations.They want frightened people to think in terms of “us versus them.”
年初,ISIL的最高领导人巴格达迪公布了他们发动袭击的真实目的。他是这么说的:“要迫使基督徒们自己积极地摧毁那些灰色地带。西方的穆斯林很快就会发现,他们必须做出选择。要么放弃自己的信仰,要么移民到伊斯兰国,只有这样才能逃脱惩罚。”很清楚,非常明确的表明了ISIL的目的。他企图在文明之间制造冲突。他们希望恐吓人们在我们与他们的对抗之间选择站位。
They want us to turn our backs on Muslims victimized by terrorism.But this gang of thugs peddling a warped ideology, they will never prevail.The world is united in our resolve to end their evil.And the only thing ISIL can do is spread terror in hopes that we will in turn, turn on ourselves.We will betray our ideals and take actions, actions motivated by fear that will drive more recruits into the arms of ISIL.That's how they win.We win by prioritizing our security as we've been doing.Refusing to compromise our fundamental American values: freedom, openness, tolerance.That's who we are.That's how we win.
他们希望我们因为恐怖分子与穆斯林受害者对立起来。但这些暴徒所宣扬的是一种扭曲的观念,是绝对不会得到认可的。全世界都会团结起来,坚定决心,消灭邪恶。ISIL唯一可以做的就是传播恐怖,但对我们来说,结果取决于我们自己。如果我们背弃自身的理想,在恐惧之下采取的行动只会让更多的人投入ISIL的怀抱。让他们得逞。如果我们继续做好我们现在正在做的事情,强化自身安全,我们就能胜利。自由、开放、宽容是我们立国的基本价值观,对此我们拒绝妥协。只有这样,我们才能取得胜利。
May God continue to bless the United States of America and God bless our troops.
愿上帝继续保佑美利坚合众国,愿上帝保佑我们的军队。
