BENJAMIN WEINTHAL: SYRIAN REFUGEES LIVING IN TURKISH CAMPS ASKING IF THE WORLD BELIEVES THEM TO BE WILD ANIMALS…….

 

All said and done, these people really are living a hellish nightmare.

It’s truly a shame, but what else can be done other than forcing the various Arab regimes in the region to pony up and fund these people til they are able to go home. Using the West as an open checking account to fund all their massive failures should no longer be an option. If they really do believe in the ‘ummah‘, fund these people in dire straits instead of funding the jihad.

More than 200 Syrians, most of them families with young children, live in a trash-infested lot across from the refugee camp. Their names cannot be disclosed because of fear of retribution against family members still in Syria.

Syrian refugees in Turkish camps ask ‘are we wild animals?’

JARABULUS, Syria – Cars, weighted down with vital supplies, make their way in the opposite direction of streams of refugees, who are desperate to escape the Syrian conflict.

This border crossing into the Turkish town of Karkamis – from the northern Syrian town of Jarabulus – has been a popular route for many.

The brutal infighting among Syrian rebel groups has unfolded at an astonishing pace over the past few months. The effects are palpable at the border crossing.

Syrian men rushed a severely wounded fighter into Karkamis. The man, on a gurney, was unconscious and his face barely identifiable.

It is unclear if he survived his injuries.

Jarabulus was the site of combat in June between the al-Qaida-linked Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham – known as ISIS within Syria – and the pro-Western Free Syrian Army. ISIS is believed to control Jarabulus, but there are Kurdish rebels in the town.

The Jerusalem Post interviewed dozens of Syrian refugees at the Kilis refugee camp in Turkey, at another border crossing roughly a 90-minute drive from Jarabulus.

“All of the international community is working against us. Are we all wild animals?” asked a middle-aged Syrian man.

  1. The Saudis have all the money in the world but want the West to take care of their poor and helpless. Hopefully they will stop being so cruel and cold hearted and take care of their own. There are over 40 muslim nations for the refugees to go. Hopefully they will find one to suit them.

    The people who are being ignored and slaughtered are the Christians in muslim nations. I think all Christian democracy’s and religions should make every effort to help them. The silence from the Christian communities is shameful.

    1. Do you have any idea how much your post makes no sense?

      I think the majority of the people in these camps are Arabs. The supposed “Arab brothers” of the Saudis, the supposed “co-religionists” of the Iranian Shias. As far as I’m concerned, Iran and Saudi Arabia should be providing charity for these lost people.
      Christians did not oppress them.
      They did not drive them out of their homes.
      Muslims comprise the great majority that did.
      Let them take responsibility for the mess instead of “Christian democracy’s.”
      So, how long have you been scapegoating Christians?
      Is English not your first language?
      Are you one of the Ummah?
