    What enemy are the Syrian Refugees fighting?

    This is a civil war, and it has multiple parties in the action. So when we hear about Syrian Refugees in numbers like 4 million, are they all fighting the same enemy, and what enemies are there to choose from?

    The mere definition of refugee should answer your question. This is the simple one from Google: a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.
    Refugees do not fight they escape.

    Good question, almost all the refugees are Sunni Muslim's, ISIS is a Sunni Muslim terror group, so these people aren't threatened as much as if they were Christians or another groups. Christians are being targeted for extermination all over the middle east, if we're going to take in anyone, Christian refugees should be given top priority.

    Since its a civil war, these people are fleeing because they don't want to get in the middle of it. If your a young man you may not want to be forcibly conscripted to join ISIS or to fight ISIS.

    My question is, why aren't the wealthy sunny Arab countries all around Syria taking in refugees and why is so much pressure being put on the west to take them in?
