The women left behind

Their husbands are dead or have spent their life savings to make the perilous trip to Europe to find work. Now thousands of abandoned Syrian women lead miserable lives in Lebanon, striving to look after themselves and their children.

    “…to find work” Ha Ha Ha.

      Slipped discs, strokes, disabling chronic conditions etc. are not conducive to finding work: therefore, i do believe that the men have gone for permanent residency/handouts from the west, and have no intentions of either coming back, nor sending for the womenfolk or children.

    Well that’s what you get when your religion defines you as nothing more than a chattel. Just when you thought there was nothing any stupider than a Muslim man, you meet a Muslima.

    If there is a problem, I fail to see what it might be.

    The irouny of this is that Canada will probably receive a majority of Syrian male Muslim “refugees” while they leave their woman and children behind. I have no doubt that Justin will make the few Syrian Muslim woman feel welcome here. https://twitter.com/DorvalTony/status/675906497805754368

      That looks strangely like a bad Elvis impersonator

  • BitterClinger

    There lives are miserable wherever they are. Personally, I hope they all die of starvation or are raped to death.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Send all our leftist men over there to tend to them.
