  2. And here's how asylum in the Gulf states works:

    "According to a 2014 report entitled “Left Out In The Cold“ by human rights organization Amnesty International, the GCC had not officially resettled a single Syrian refugee since the crisis began in 2011."

    I hate that people don't want to help; they just turn a blind eye to all the suffering and try to demonise refugees to justify being complicit in human suffering. If we were fleeing from war we'd want and need somebody to give us shelter. You don't get to pick and choose who gets to have a good life.
