"We don't have a flotilla to go out and help them, but there are plenty of countries in the region that do, and plenty of reasons for them to do it - if they don't, they'll be dealing with a floating graveyard soon, rather than a flotilla of ships."

As Lona said elsewhere ... Have We Stones for Hearts? "at what point in time will we look back and have to admit that we were witnessing a slow genocide and didn't do anything about it? "
She is so very right ...

Where are they going something must be done to stop this that is the important point European countries do not want then I am not saying its right but there is just no money
Let those who can truly help stand up not just place then in ghettos to rot

These Muslims are being persecuted in Bangladesh? Malaysia, another Muslim country, won't let them in? The Reminiscent of the boat people from Viet Nam in the 70s,but they were at least settled in refugee camps before they migrated to other countries. What is going on??? Inhuman.

Yes Debra and now in London England there are Vietnamese ghettos as they do not mix
Europe is flooded and so many European countries are now desperate
Where will they migrate to lots of people using the word compassion but talk is cheap who is going to provide homes education medical care etc etc
