I feel sorry for all of us in the West.
Before you shed too many tears, ask a few logical questions:
When refugees are rescued from the Mediterranean, it’s by Italian or Greek navies. Where are the navies of Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco…??? If you think they don’t have navies, look it up in Wikipedia. They do. They choose not to help the refugees.
In the case of the recent little boy drowned in Turkey, why is this the West’s fault? Why doesn’t Turkey simply stop traffickers from setting out from Turkey in sub-standard boats? They could do this tomorrow if they wanted to. They don’t. They are the ones to blame.
Refugees: If they go to Jordan, they are put in camps. When Hungary tried to put them in camps–half-heartedly–they were condemned. Why not condemn Jordan? When Slovakia and other countries said they don’t want to accept refugees, they were condemned. How many refugees have Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States accepted? Zero. Who condemns them? No one.
I’m sorry, but there is a double standard. When the Muslim countries step up and accept responsibility for their own “brothers and sisters” as they themselves would call them, let me know.
