51 million refugees – who is to blame?
By David Craig, on June 21st, 2014
One of the big stories yesterday was that the number of ‘displaced persons’ in the world has hit a record of 51,200,000. As usual the whining, handwringing, over-paid, over-pensioned, job-for-life lefties at the BBC and similar news outlets spun the story as somehow being the fault of the developed West for not doing enough to help those forced to flee their homes.
But hold on a minute. I haven’t been out killing and raping and setting off bombs and otherwise terrifying people into fleeing their homes and putting up with a hellish life in refugee camps. Neither has anybody I know. So, how come I and the billion or so others in developed countries are to blame for the massive and ever-growing refugee crisis?
But who could be to blame? As usual, I’ll try to go behind the ‘shock, horror’ headlines and bring you the unfortunate and inconvenient facts that the BBC and other ‘opinion leaders’ often ‘forget’ to mention.
Here’s a chart of the ‘Top Ten’ countries for refugees (click to see more clearly)

(I’ve coloured those countries where the refugee crisis may well be linked to the Religion of Peace in red and the others in blue)
I’m amazed! Who would have thunk it? I think we can begin to guess who and what are responsible for the world’s worsening refugee crisis.
I rest my case.
(And if you haven’t clicked on the video clip I provided a link for yesterday – the clip of Lebanese Christian Brigitte Gabriel providing her view of the danger the RoP presents to the developed world - you really should. She’s stunningly articulate and stunningly to-the-point. Moreover, being a woman from a Middle East country, she says things no Western journalist could ever say without losing their job and being branded a raaaaacccciiiiisssssttttt!!!!!)http://www.snouts-in-the-trough.com/archives/9807
