The silence of Australia’s Imams on the Gulf States and refugees

As I wrote the other week, the Arab world, and the Gulf States in particular, have been happy to bat away any criticism of their complete refusal to resettle any refugees from Syria while leaving the West to deal with the tide of human misery.

Protests have been held in Europe debating the pros and cons of refugee policy. But not a single protest concerning the need to resettle refugees has been held in the Gulf. That’s because Gulf citizens would appear to think that their governments’ refusal to resettle any refugees is an appropriate response.
