The five wealthiest Muslim Gulf Nations have so far refused to take a single Syrian refugee

More than four million Syrians have been forced to escape the never-ending civil war ravaging their country and the barbaric terror group carving a bloody trail across the Middle East.

The vast majority live in overcrowded refugee camps in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq – all under threat from ISIS – and record numbers are making the perilously long journey to Europe.

Yet, as debate rages between politicians in Europe over how many they should take, nearby super-wealthy Gulf nations of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain have refused to offer sanctuary to a single Syrian refugee.

Amnesty International’s Head of Refugee and Migrants’ Rights, Sherif Elsayid-Ali, described their inaction as ‘shameful’.

He said: ‘The records of Gulf countries is absolutely appalling, in terms of actually showing compassion and sharing the responsibility of this crisis… It is a disgrace.’

    Again, send all of them to Sweden, Norway, Holland and Belgium. Just like the fire and get the whole shebang burning already. What’s the worst that happens? They blame the Jews?

    It’s Mike Duffy’s fault!

    Watch for Al Gore to hijack the photo of the child and blame it on Global Warming .

  • Just as with the tsunami a few years ago, charity is someone else’s problem.

      It’s definitely not mine.
      I have my hands full with my own family.

      • Charity might be a pillar of Islam but it certainly isn’t a practised virtue.

          Charity is a luxury when you get a bill of ten grand for the kids braces.
          Both at the same time.
          And then other shit happens all the time afterwards.

          • Charity is a non-entity for those who buy solid gold braces for their kids.

    The West should force these five plus Oman to take the refugees. Hell, even send a large contingent to Iran now that sanctions are being eased.

    Of course its a shame but then again the West is dependent on OPEC oil for sustaining their energy needs so if they put up a squawk -about Syrian refugees- then Saudi Arabia can shut off the oil exports to you name it.

    What about the main non-Islamic instigators of the region, Putin and China?
