Syrian Refugee Crisis - Is Germany More Islamic than Saudi Arabia?

Politics / Saudi Arabia Sep 02, 2015 - 06:53 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Whilst many european nations are positioning their storm troopers on their borders and ports to repel the swarm (David Cameron) or hordes as other politicians have referred to the mass migration underway, instead Germany has now taken the opposite position by opening its doors to this year settle as many as 800,000 mostly Syrian refugees out of a potential total of 1 million Syrian refugees expected to enter Europe this year which itself is out of a total Syrian refugee population of more than 4 million who today are mostly sat in refugee camps in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon, most of whom seek to follow the now well trodden migration paths northwards.


According to the UNHCR the current breakdown of Syrian refugee populations in near recipient states falls are :

Turkey 1.9 million
Lebanon 1.1 million
Jordan 630k
Iraq and Egypt 400k

 

Whilst the influx of Syrians into Europe is being estimated at the rate of 70k per month, or about half the total number of migration under way of approx 140k per month.

But what about the rich muslim nations of the Gulf, whose Syrian muslim brothers and sisters are in dire need of their help, what are they doing?

The blunt answer is sweet FA as Amnesty International points out -

https://www.amnesty.org/en/l...

  • The six Gulf countries - Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain - have offered zero resettlement places to Syrian refugees.
  • Other high income countries including Russia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea have also offered zero resettlement places.
  • The number of Syrian refugees hosted by Turkey alone, is more than 10 times the number of new Syrian asylum applications received in all 28 EU countries in the past three years.
  • Germany has pledged 30,000 places for Syrian refugees through its humanitarian admission programme; nearly half the global total of resettlement and humanitarian admission programme places for Syrian refugees and 82 per cent of the EU total.Germany and Sweden together have received 96,500 new Syrian asylum applications in the last three years, representing 64 per cent of all such applications in the EU.Excluding Germany and Sweden, the remaining 26 EU countries have pledged a mere 5,105 resettlement places, or 0.13 per cent of Syrian refugees in the main host countries.

Whilst Germany has now pledged to take in upto 800,000 refugees THIS YEAR.

This illustrates the fundamental fact that the Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf states are just going through the motions of being muslim / Islamic nations as their rhetoric and pious preachings that washes over the broadcast air waves, eagerly lapped up the worlds gullible muslim masses does not reflect the reality of the actions of most Saudi's and gulf arabs.

For in the first instance the gulf arab states have played a large part in bringing about the destruction of Syria through their support of ideologies such as that of ISIS and then secondly have turned a blind eye to the suffering of the Syrian people for the fundamental fact that these muslims are NOT gulf arabs. Which illustrates that RACISM is rife in Arabia, and not that far removed of that of 1930's Germany which shatters the illusion of a global muslim brotherhood when Islam has always been a means of the Arab states gaining influence and control over other gullible muslims across the world who are blinded by the trappings of Islam into assuming that Saudi Arabia is an Islamic nation.

Arab racism probably has its roots in its tribal culture, where the tribe is everything, and since foreigners are not part of any tribe then they are deemed to be worthless, not equal, sub-arab hence why the likes of Saudi Arabia rarely grants citizenship no matter how long a migrant may have worked in Saudi Arabia. Whilst at the same time the first thing on a rich Saud's buy list is to secure dual nationality with a western nation such as the UK and US.

To illustrate the degree of racism practiced in the gulf states is how non arab muslim workers tend to be treated as sub-humans, we only need to look at the statistics of deaths of workers involved in the construction of the Qatar World Cup facilities that according go the Washington Post, 1200 migrant workers have died and an estimated 4,000 will die before the country stages the world cup of death in 2022 which compares against 1 death for London 2012 and 2 for the South African 2010 world cup.

Additionally there are countless reports of the gulf state arabs treating non arab muslim workers as effective slaves without any rights to abuse.

Saudi Arabia: The Middle East's Real Apartheid State ...

Why are Saudi Arabians more racist than other Arabs ...

Therefore, can a nation such as Saudi Arabia that does not practice that which it preaches truly be Islamic? Especially when a secular christian nation such as Germany shows infinitely more compassion for muslim refugees than the gulf arab states are doing or not doing at all.

Or is the truth that Saudi Arabia is an Al-Saud organised crime family that hides behind the curtain of Islam that the other Gulf states have also modeled themselves upon.
