    It seems really strange that this 'humanitarian' wants the migrants to risk life and limb to get to Europe before he will help.
    Since they are from the Middle East, why does this 'humanitarian' not offer to buy land in the arab countries around their countries of origin.
    I am sure filthy rich countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE would be able to take in a lot of refugees, even without this 'humanitarian's' help.
    Where are their consciences?
