The Math of Migration, the Path of Pilgrimage…

Okay, so right up front: I’m not an Arab-basher. I’m not an Islam-basher. I’m NOT Charlie Hebdo. I’ve even been accused of being a Jihadi. But here’s what I don’t get:

1) the oil-rich Arab states of (Olympics sponsor) Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain and others import literally millions of foreigners to do the work that their princely asses won’t do, up to 75% of their populations, to the point that the English language there is more of a lingua franca than their own native Arabic…

2) millions of Arab-speaking Syrians and other war-torn Arab states are in a state of massive migration, in search of better lives, mostly to Europe, for lack of better options, a place where they know not the language nor the culture…

3) almost NO Syrians have been resettled in the Persian Gulf, Bahrain being the one exception…

What’s wrong with this picture? You do the math…
