Hungary is admirable for its stance on refugees

Why are the Gulf states not taking refugees? The vast majority of them are Muslim. Europe does not owe these people anything.

 Indeed I believe that some of those countries opening their borders will come to regret their decision. I applaud Hungary for taking the line it did.

They explained that they didn’t have a Muslim community and neither did they have facilities.

The media is the real villain here. They highlight the plight of the refugees yet say little as to how some immigrants behave.

Does it not say in the bible that charity begins in the home?

We have too many do gooders in this country but not enough to do good for our own people strangely enough.
