I dont understand why they dont stay in muslim countries (Turkey, Jordan, southern Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, etc). They come to the west and complain about not getting rights because they are minorities, but completely neglect the fact that they chose to come here, they chose to cross half of Europe to get to the "better" countries instead of going to the countries around them, I think many of them are using this crisis as an excuse to go somewhere they perceive as better. I feel for them and their situation but what Europe is doing isn't the right answer. If the Syrians are sitting in their village in Syria and hear the German government is giving free healthcare, jobs, and a hope for a better future in their country, they might just use the crisis as an excuse to advance themselves economically. What the Europeans should really be doing is, instead of inviting millions of immigrants into their countries, they should go to the immigrants countries and fix them. The Europeans had all their colonies and basically turned all of Africa and the middle east to sh*t because of them, and rather then going and fixing the problem, they are just telling all the people to come to their countries. As a business man myself I can see the issue here. There is no industry in the middle east. All they have is oil, they dont have any high tech companies like East Asia or America does, they dont have much infrastructure to support more advanced development, and they dont have an advanced enough education system. If they really want to help these refugees, that moron Merkel could go blow the living sh*t out of ISIS using whatever means necessary, and then move in a bunch of educated German urban planners and people to reform the government like the US did to Japan. Japan has no natural resources, they were strained from years of war, and their entire government was removed from office. 30 years later they were the 2nd largest economy in the world, with one of the highest GDP per capitas outside of Western Europe. That didn't happen because the US said "Oh all the Japanese people who were displaced from the war should just come to the US", no they physically went to Japan, with their expertise and reformed the country. If the West just keeps letting people come, then the countries they come from will NEVER get better. All their educated professionals and business owners will jump ship and move West because they can.2

Yeah, I get what you're saying. I suppose the refugees believe they will lead a better life in Western countries. Personally, I think it's really sad what is happening to those people and I know a lot of countries apparently want to allow all of them to move there. However, from a logical standpoint, people also need to think about the economic and even the social impact that all of those refugees would have on the countries they're moving to. I seriously doubt some of those European countries can support the massive influx of all of those refugees.1
