When the first reports came the media showed scenes of overloaded, not seaworthy boats coming ashore and one picture in particular of a drowned little boy stuck in my mind!
There were also many scenes of Syrian people on trains and in stations being offered food and drink for sustenance but they refused and took the food trowing it away, not good enough or it wasn't Halal. The kindness of the local citizens and local authorities was extremely rudely rebuffed. I noticed that most of the refugees were strong, healthy looking young men with very few women or children.
Since the first wave of reports a second type report caught my attention, women being interviewed in Syria, upset and bitter because they were left behind, abandoned by their husbands, no income hungry and having families to fend for themselves. One man said that it was wrong these young men should have stayed to fight.
In Holland where housing has been a problem since WWII homes are just not available and from what I understand these refugees are given tents to live in, well good on the Dutch they show their hospitality based on what is possible!
President Obama is accepting several thousand of those "Refugees" and who knows about their background or how well they will be received, will they be in camps, living in tents or are they going to be treated like long lost friends, will they be contributing to the community by taking jobs from Americans? Of course I shouldn't question these decisions Americans are used to allowing Illegal Aliens in by the thousands invited by the President and everyone is fine with that, why do I worry?
