The Refugees flowing into Europe - the Blame?

A human tragedy of massive proportions is flowing into Europe, Syrian, Iraqi, Kurdish, Afghanistan refugees are arriving en masse. The flood of humanity, the likes of which have never occurred since World War 2, is knocking on the doors of Europe in a desperate attempt to seek a better life. They have lived a life of hell in the countries of their origin that is mind-boggling. Their lives are under threat from the warring factions in their countries. Daesh (ISIS), Jabhat al Nusra and other evil Islamist splinter terror groups threaten them on a daily basis. In Nigeria it is the savage, Boko Al Haram.

These unfortunate people were left with no alternative, but to escape from their countries of origin, where they face certain death. If they flee, their chances of survival may be better. It is comparable to jumping off the inferno of the Twin Towers in the USA on 11th September 2001! Desperate people take desperate actions in order to survive. Many boarded boats that are not seaworthy and dangerous to escape. We cannot imagine what these poor people have experienced. It is impossible to remain indifferent to their tragic plight. Many have lost their lives in escape attempts to achieve better lives for themselves and their families. Many unseaworthy boats have capsized en route resulting in thousands drowning.

Devastating image of Syrian boy washed up on Turkish shore show desperation of refugees
We all witnessed a heartrending picture of a three year old boy, who drowned and his body washed ashore on the Turkish coastline of Bodrum. All who saw this photograph was moved by the tragedy that says everything in a nutshell.

Many refugees landed on the Greek Island of Kos. The scenes on this tourist island are tragic. The conditions for them are sub-human. Refugees landed up in Budapest in enormous numbers awaiting trains in their quest to reach Austria and Germany in the hope of beginning a new life. The refugee problem has reached crisis point and the European countries are unable to find a solution.

No country within the EU expected a refugee problem of such massive proportions with which they must deal. Nero (the superpowers) fiddles while the Middle East burns. They have helped Daesh create a refugee problem that is swamping Europe because of their combined apathy. There is also Iran that these powers are appeasing, waiting in the shadows to dominate the Middle East. Time is on the side of Daesh while very little is done.

Let us be honest with ourselves. The blame for this problem lies in the EU, the US, Turkey, China, Russia and the Gulf States. The total apathy of the European countries towards Al Qaeda, Daesh (ISIS), Jabhat Al Nusra, despite the fact that many of these evil Islamist groups operate within their countries to instill hatred from the mosques by evil, racist Imams preaching against Jews, Christians and even against the West that gave them a haven for their hate. They have brainwashed wayward youth to join their ranks and travel to Syria for training in Daesh camps for the purpose of fighting to establish an Islamist Caliphate. The cruelty towards non-Muslims and Muslims, who oppose them is horrendous. Turkey acted as a transit camp for these potential trainees to enter Syria for Daesh recruitment.

Boat Migrants Risk It All for New Life in Europe
It is inexplicable that the US, EU and the Arab States never formed a united military front to confront Daesh in order to annihilate this evil, cruel terrorist militia that threatens not only the Middle East but the whole world. These Daesh savages are arming at a rapid rate unhindered. A well directed carpet bomb dropped on their many exposed convoys should be relatively easy to achieve. All we are getting is an impotent war of attrition that barely tickles these savages or harms their highly motivated resolve at carrying out horrendous acts of cruelty, bloody beheadings as well as horrifying and cruel acts of torture.

Eventually, hordes of refugees will be knocking on Israel’s doors to be granted asylum. Israel has a problem with refugees coming from Darfur in Sudan as well as Eritrea and has been accused of not handling the problem “humanely”. It is questionable whether Europe, faced with a similar problem will be more “humane” bearing in mind that they are wealthier than Israel and have more resources to deal with this tragic problem. Despite this, Israel pundits say that Israel should not accept any refugees from enemy countries as Israel is at war with Syria. What Syria? The Syrian regime under Assad has collapsed and these refugees are not the enemies of Israel. They are the enemies of the savage terrorist Islamist groups that are on the rampage in their countries of origin.  

Israel should consider taking in some of the refugees, especially those whom they treated in hospitals. This will go a long way in improving Israel’s image in the world. It will result in a cry from the Palestinians who will shout “what about Palestinian  refugees who were expelled from Israel in 1948?” The answer to that is not easy. However, many 1948 refugees are no longer alive and it is their descendants, many of whom are dispersed in various countries in the world, have no connection with Palestine, and are citizens of the countries where they live. 

Another very valid point is the refusal of the Gulf States to lend a helping hand to the refugees and grant them asylum. They always seem to avoid the issue with great success and no country in Europe even mentions or criticizes their attitude towards their fellow Arab refugees. They could learn from Israel when it comes to saving their own people from distress and to cease their hypocritical attitude towards the Palestinian refugees of 1948. This crisis is of far greater proportion and their (the oil rich Gulf States) contribution to solving the crisis of their own Arab brothers is close to zero. Much of the blame for the tragic situation is no less on their shoulders as well.
