The refugee crisis on three Greek islands near Turkey is "total chaos", the UN refugee agency UNHCR says.
Accommodation, water and sanitation are all inadequate for the many asylum seekers on Kos, Chios and Lesbos, the UNHCR says, calling it "shameful".

it is a shame indeed. but besides a few countries what is the Rest of the world doing?
The UK is basically closing down the tunnel hermetically. thousands want to flee through the tunnel in their desperation.The USA?Canada? Australia? no one wants the refugees... And the UNHCR? is there any help from them? besides a few words, nothing is coming from them. Amnesty international is inspecting Traiskirchen,in Austria. -it is a shame- they say. are they doing anything? no, again, lots words and tons of printed papers and memos, and that's it. THAT is a shame. at least it is summer now and warm. but in a few short weeks it is over and it will be cold and freezing. what then?

Most of them appear to be Syrians.
Did the foreign powers that demanded that president Assad should go ask the Syrian public if they agreed ?

Europe is too small for such amounts of migrants.

Maybe I'm wrong, but for me it looks like the result of so called "democratization" of Northern-African countries (Egypt, Tunis and, especially, Libya).
Now oldie Europe, who wanted and supported it, eats consequences, by full spoons.

Bon appetite!

The decision "to democratize" taken by a small group of people and not discussed in the media to see if this makes sense or not

I advise the West, including Greece, to start building lots of Mosques.

This is the least they can do after supporting and creating much of the chaos across the Region, including in Syria - The West are to blame for much of this displacement of fellow humans!

Of course, the US of A has been instrumental and the key player, but they have meddled safe in the knowledge that the displaced immigrants could not flee to US of A shores and would remain a problem for Western European countries.

Maybe. But the 2 million Christians of Syria, the Kurds, the Alawi, Yazidi are the groups that have more to fear Islamic extremists (many of the extremists not even Syrians but foreigners sent via Turkey)

Is Assad and his army not protecting most of the Christians and Alawites?

according to reports many who couldn't escape the advancing IS in time got slaughtered. The media is saying that the Syrian army is overstretched and exhausted

A room is full of women looking like they have cried for hours, if not for days.
Sat on the floor leaning against each wall, they don't say much. Instead, they wail, wipe their tears and hug each other to share the pain.
Ayse Aygun's 18 year-old son Salih had gone across the border to Syria, to join the Kurdish YPG militants and fight against the Islamic State group (IS).
He was killed two weeks ago in a clash at the town of Sirrin.
Ayse's family and friends try to be there for her in these difficult times.
It is more than losing a child for Ayse. The Turkish authorities will not allow her son's body back into the country to be buried.
