The film exposes the plight of Syrian refugee families who cross the border into Lebanon to flee civil war in their country. Now their children have to abandon the dream of a good education and say goodbye to their carefree childhood as circumstances force them to become the breadwinners

One million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, (1 in 4 of the population )while a possible 800,000 arriving in the whole of the EU is daily headline news. The suffering of refugees in lebanon and Syria itself is mostly ignored by western media channels

I would suggest you just learn how to use google: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=nws&q=syrian+refugees

since you seem so concerned about the plight of the Syrians, "Quincy", perhaps you should lobby the Kremlin to accept at least one refugee: http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/09/world/welcome-syrian-refugees-countries/


"So far Russia makes it very hard for Muslim refugees to come; it puts a lot of bureaucratic obstacles in their path. But this needs to change," says Maxim Shevchenko, a well-known Russian journalist and member of the Kremlin's presidential council on human rights. "In the present situation, where minorities in Syria are threatened with genocide at the hands of IS, Russia has the ability and the responsibility to do something about it."

With a population of 144 million spread over a vast territory and a standard of living on par with the likes of Hungary and Poland, Russia has the resources to absorb new arrivals, should it chose to.

The Circassian quandary

Circassians present a special problem for Russia, since accepting them back would require acknowledging the harsh treatment their ancestors endured. During the 19th century, the Russian Empire drove the Circassians out and absorbed their lands in the northwest Caucasus.

We already have some, who married Russian girls and speak Russian. It's enough. But your desperate attempts are marked. ;)

I don't think I will have anything to do with the massive influx of immigration Russia will experience over the next 100 years: Once Putin is gone and ergo Kadyrov, Chechnya will ignite once more, and the Central Asian states are going to watch an explosion in population over the next few decades as their mineral and oil wealth is realized and they see a major change in lifestyle. Unless of course Putin sticks around long enough to destabilize the Uzbeks too.

Don't you think it would be better if America just stopped supporting IS and they all could just go home?

Yeah, also Kazahs, Kirgizs, Tadjiks, Turkmens - all around, we so desperately need destabilised regions on our borders.

it seems to be Putin's modus operandi, but maybe that's just as far as Putin's force projection is able in 2015?

and here is something from the bible bashers....
http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2015/09/major-red-alert-syrian-refugee-crisis-is-not-as-it-appears-a-major-trojan-horse-operation-for-all-western-nations-guess-who-is-behind-this-massive-exodus-video-oyep-3210752.html
the story about Macedonia where they refused and threw away food and water because it had a Red Cross on it (it was distributed by that organisation) brings also claims and counter claims.
though in Italy there WERE riots because they demanded ´food like back home´.
In Austria 20 of them wanted to go on hunger strike and demanded a press conference. they demanded that they also get 200 euro per month as other Austrians get , where they got the numbers from is a mystery, . no austrian out of work gets that much money....

so you have no information to counter my stance, just personal attacks? Why are you so bitter and misdirected?

He's obviously still quite young (still in his 20's I reckon), inexperienced in life and has yet to work out what is socially acceptable and what isn't. Don't worry though, he'll grow up eventually.

Frank, don't read, watch and listen so called reputable independent Western media. Especially so called analysts (you know the root word).
Take facts, common sense and remember "cui prodest".
Insha alla.

I didn't see any information in your post just a bunch lies. Where did you get this "knowledge"?
