This is about the immigrant crisis!

I just cannot understand why the richest countries in the middle east are not offering sanctuary to the people who are leaving their homeland for a better life elsewhere due to war in Syria, the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. Why are Germany and Austria stepping up but not countries like Kuwait, UAE, Quatar, etc.

1. I understand it completely. They are a very tribal people.

Just ask a Jordanian what he thinks about Palestinians and you will find out. I have and it was eye-opening.

5. Very true. I just wish the media would at least criticize the countries

 

We actually take in 100k of immigrants a year under regular circumstances and we are still criticized on a daily basis. What about Korea and Japan? Australia? And the most difficult place to immigrate to New Zealand?

2. They are bigots. And none too bright either.

Nothing like being rich to make you needy and selfish.

6. Because the refugees are "too different "

 

Here I'll let the Kuwaiti foreign minister explain (its short - 45 seconds +/-)



Now excuse me while I hurl...
