That’s not very Christian of them. Where are their enlightened, democratic principles ? Where indeed.
The Persians ? As Jeb would say, nada. El zippo.
So they all swim the other way – to Europe – for some good old fashioned Judeo- Christian, Age of Enlightenment, democratic hospitality. Just what don’t get at home in IslamoLand.
Remember this the next time some Repuglican bloviator tells you “that the Saudis are our friends.” The Saudi royal family are the Saudi royal family’s friends. A family business that makes money off of oil and the tourist trade to Mecca. End of story.
If you were fleeing oil and wars between warring Muslim factions, you might want to get the frack away from the people doing the fighting – your fellow Muslims. You might not stop until you got to some place where the Mullahs don’t run the show – like London or Cleveland. They may be desperate, but they’re not stupid.
The Saudis, who bankroll proxy groups in Syria and Iraq, have closed their borders to their northern neighbors. They aren’t taking in any refugees. Nor is Iran, who evidently wants nothing to do with any SunniLooney.
No no news coverage, no clashes at the border, no drowned babies – just a big No Trespassing sign in Arabic. Which any member of ISIS can read.
The Arab world’s wealthiest nations are doing next to nothing for Syria’s refugees. And the Persians are just bombing them. Ponder that.
While European countries are being lectured about their failure to take in enough refugees, Saudi Arabia – which has taken in precisely zero migrants – has 100,000 air conditioned tents that can house over 3 million people sitting empty.
