'Are we wild animals?'

Benny Weinthal reports from a Turkish camp full of refugees from the Syrian civil war.
The Jerusalem Post interviewed dozens of Syrian refugees at the Kilis refugee camp in Turkey, at another border crossing roughly a 90-minute drive from Jarabulus.
“All of the international community is working against us. Are we all wild animals?” asked a middle-aged Syrian man.
More than 200 Syrians, most of them families with young children, live in a trash-infested lot across from the refugee camp. Their names cannot be disclosed because of fear of retribution against family members still in Syria.
Converted shipping containers, enough to hold up to 12,000 refugees, provide crammed living quarters.
The real number of refugees in the camp, which is run by the Turkish government and the UN high commissioner for refugees, is thought to be between 15,000 and 17,000.
The Turkish authorities are slated to open a second camp in Kilis to provide shelter to refugees living outside the existing one. The newly arrived refugees, who arrived between six weeks and 10 days ago, have endured a grueling existence outside the camp. One asked that a “message be sent to the Turkish government to find a way to help us.”
Of course, if they were 'Palestinian refugees' being cared for by UNRWA, they would be able to be refugees for the next four generations or  more, and get millions of dollars in international assistance. Alas, no one gives a damn when Muslims kill or displace Muslims.

The world may yet live to regret this. I would bet that eventually some Islamic 'charitable' organization (along the lines of Hezbullah - the IHH would be perfect for this in Turkey) will eventually assist these people outside of the international and government NGO frameworks - and turn them into radical Islamists if they are not such already.

What could go wrong?

I guesss Allah forgot to tell them; not all muslims are "the best of people".

If you pry that apart what you get is just more of the same Arab bathos and self pity. The indignation that someone isn't rushing to coddle them and give them a handout for the sheer joy of having the Arabs lop off their heads with typical gratitude later on.
