Why are rich arab states forcing arab refugees to takes hazardous journeys instead of helping them?

An Egyptian billionaire wants to buy a Mediterranean island for the arab refugees flooding Europe. Why? Wouldn't it be a lot easier, cheaper (meaning you can help more people) to have the refugees move to Egypt or neighbouring countries? Why is that the arab countries, some of whom are filthy rich, are forcing entire families, including little kids, to take long,hazardous journeys - why can't they find a place in their hearts and in their lands before innocents are subjected to the horror and trauma?

    But European countries is taking them in, despite having poorer economies and being so far away that people die getting there. Why don't the arabs help their brethren, that aas the question.
