Refugee Crisis in Perspective


 Syrian children march in the refugee camp in Jordan. The number of Children in this camp exceeds 60% of the total number of refugees hence the name "Children's camp". Some of them lost their relatives, but others lost their parents.

Occasionally I link to posts from other blogs and widen the scope of this normally personal blog.  This is an issue on which one cannot remain silent.

If you had any doubts as to the level of disingenuousness displayed by some of our political elites regarding the treatment of refugees by Europe, let alone Britain, then this post from “This Too Is Africa” should be a salutary reminder that many other much poorer parts of the world have been bearing the brunt of this major problem for a long time now.

You can’t have wars without refugees and they cannot be dismissed as economic migrants.
