Why is the media not focusing on the fact that Turkey is doing nothing to stop these people from crossing a dangerous track of water in rubber dhingies?
These people could be better helped in the nearby areas of their troubled homelands, not in the waving of carrots (open ended asylum policy) that allows for them to be preyed upon by every nefarious crook along their way.

This is the first picture of Rehan Kurdi (above centre with son Aylan) who drowned alongside her two sons when their overcrowded boat, filled with refugees, capsized shortly into the crossing to the Greek Island of Kos. Just a week earlier Rehan had confided in her sister-in-law Tima Kurdi (above left) that she was scared of water and didn’t want to make the journey. Heartbroken Ms Kurdi revealed she had given the family the money to pay for the perilous passage after their bid to move to Canada was rejected.
She told how she has now begged her devastated brother, Addullah (top right), not to return to Syria to bury Rehan, three-year-old Aylan and five-year-old Galip. But the heartbroken aunt says her sibling is glad that pictures of his youngster son’s body being recovered from the Turkish beach (bottom right) is raising awareness of the plight of millions of refugees fleeing from Syria.
NOTE: If you have any humanity, you can’t help but sympathize with these people, but the answer to their problems doesn’t lie in their ”making it into Europe”, but their being taken care of where they are, in N.Africa and in the Middle East. It’s the most humane way in handling their situations.
