It Is Not Enough to Feel Compassion for Refugees - They Must Be Helped

syrian refugee toddler drowned

Everyone feels compassion for baby Aylan, the drowned refugee toddler who washed up on a Turkish beach but it's not enough, we must do something about it, especially countries like Cyprus that are along the corridor used by boat refugees.

The refugees from Syria literally have no choices, they are running away from a certain death - either from their own government forces, or the ISIS terrorists. Our authorities cannot turn their backs on them and throw them in jail or treat them like subhumans just because they are in dire trouble. The whole population of Cyprus was in a similar situation in 1974 and it's time the money from the EU is used correctly to make a safe haven for these human beings.
