As Americans go toe-to-toe over whether or not, or how many Syrian refugees should be allowed in, the richest Persian Gulf states in the region remain conveniently refugee-free.
For the last several years, since the US began its unethical attempts at regime change in Syria, none of its rich allies in the region have taken in a single refugee.
The Muslim countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), all of which are considered friends of the United States, that include Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and theUnited Arab Emirates, have refused to allow in any refugees.
According to Amnesty international, not one of these states has aided in the refugee crisis since the conflict began years ago.

Despite some of these countries taking part in the funding of rebel groups to fight Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, they somehow manage to avoid their obligation to allow in the refugees that they created.
Saudia Arabia, in particular, is showing their extreme lack of humanity by perpetuating war in Syria and refusing refugees – as they have 100,000 vacant air-conditioned tents that can house millions, yet they remain completely empty.
Other states in the region have taken in millions of refugees and they do so without the vast riches enjoyed by the members of GCC.
The GCC states not only have the ability to monetarily support a temporary influx of refugees, but they speak the same language, have similar cultures, and are directly responsible for creating the refugee problem in the first place.
To cause someone to be homeless and then refuse to rectify their homelessness, despite having the capabilities, is a despicable move and should be shunned by those who promote freedom. Instead of this shunning, however, the US and continues to support them, and acts in a similar manner.
Since the Paris attacks, the xenophobic mainstream media has pumped fear into the masses by telling them that the Syrian refugees will be saturated with terrorists. This misinformation is still spread, in spite of the fact that not a single Paris attacker was a refugee.
It should come as no surprise, however, that the US and its tyrannical Arab allies would act in such a manner as their largest ally in the region, Saudi Arabia, has a track record far worse than any terror group.
Today alone, Saudi Arabia is set to remove the heads of 50 people deemed ‘enemies of the state.’ Is it any wonder why the US is such good friends with them?
