The Arab Press Reacts to the European Refugee Crisis

"We are a nauseating nation."

"We are a nauseating nation," wrote the Saudi journalist 'Ali Sa'd Al-Moussa in Al-Watan on September 5, in reaction to images of Syrians and other refugees fleeing to Europe. The "nation" he was angrily condemning was not only Saudi Arabia, but the greater Arab world. It is a world, he lamented, "that kills people for their opinions or affiliation. Compare [this] to the parallel image: in the central train station in Munich, dozens of German citizens gather to welcome the first train arriving from Budapest carrying hundreds of immigrants...

"We should feel some sense of shame for being victims of an education [based on] curses, which has been adopted by all the circles, schools, speeches and platforms—from the pan-Arabists and the Nasserites to the Ba'thists and the Islamic extremists. After all these curses and inculcation of hatred, we discover that the [norms of] tolerance and acceptance [that characterize] European society have become a goal worth risking our lives for[.] Europe is now home to 11 million Arab immigrants... who have attained rights and have a prospect of receiving citizenship, equality and justice under the law—all the things whose absence drove them to flee their Arab countries of origin..."

"Stop talking about the hypocrisy of [Western] morals and values, because reality exposes nothing but our own ugly countenance."

Al-Moussa's furious diatribe is one of many in the Arab press occasioned both by the pictures of Arab refugees seeking haven in Europe, and especially by the images of Aylan Kurdi, the 3-year-old Syrian Kurdish boy whose body washed up on the shores of Turkey. The Middle East Media Research Institute has collected and translated several of these remarkable reactions, many of them expressing shame over what the images of desperation and death imply about the region the refugees have been fleeing. (It has also reprinted many political cartoons from the region expressing the same revulsion.) Although some commenters have trained their anger on European and American policies that have contributed to the crisis, many of the pieces are remarkable not for maligning the West, but for fulsomely praising its virtues, if not romanticizing its culture. The excoriation is largely reserved for the Middle East itself.

The example of the Aylan Kurdi photographs is especially striking. While many Westerners reacted to the images with a sense of guilt over restrictive refugee admissions policies, some Arab writers saw the "sad, shameful and painful" photographs as an accusation against themselves. For example, Muhammad Hussein asked in Egypt's Al-Ahram, "Does the picture of the boy who drowned represent the death certificate of this nation, which died recently and is [now only] awaiting a burial permit?...

"In the face of the boy who drowned I saw the face of an entire nation cast out [on the beach] like a small dead fish that exudes a stench of death, but also additional foul smells of oil, shame, impotence, treachery, conspiracy and collusion…"

Adnan Hussein, writing in Iraq's Al-Mada, condemned the Middle East by praising the West's values (choosing to overlook, for example, the anti-refugee rhetoric and actions in Hungary, to say nothing of the ethnic- and religion-based Balkan conflicts of a generation ago, much less Europe's appalling 20th century). "The lofty [value of] human sentiment is rooted in cultured societies from Japan to the US," he wrote on September 4. "In Europe and other civilized countries a sharp sense of humanity is inculcated from early childhood…

"We too could be like them and our countries could be like their countries, which do not persecute the citizens and do open their arms to the victims of natural and political disasters. Yes, we could be like them if we  thoroughly examined our barbaric political regime, our backwards social order, our obsolete curricula, our media that operates without professional norms, and our religious establishment that interprets the texts in a barbaric fashion, inciting to hatred and to abuse of the other, even members of the Islamic faith! This situation clearly mandates a velvet revolution that the educated [sector] must launch."

(Hussein's call for a "velvet revolution" is, of course, an appeal to a European solution. He's evoking the non-violent overthrow of the communist regime by students and dissidents in 1989 in what was then Czechoslovakia.)

Some commenters did turn their anger on the West, especially on President Barack Obama, whose Mideast policies they see as destructive, inhumane, and feckless. The Iraqi journalist 'Aziz Al-Hajj, writing on the Elaph website on September 3, charged that, "The West is responsible [for the crisis], not because it is unable to absorb millions of refugees that might transform Europe's social and cultural fabric... but because of the wretched and dangerous Western policy, in particular Obama's policy, which has helped spark crises of conflict in our region, especially in Syria, Libya, Yemen and Iraq.

"If those who preach humanitarianism—in fact, if the international community at large—had cared for the lives and security of our [Arab] peoples, they would not have abandoned Libya mid way, and would not have shrugged off the decisions of the [June 2012] Geneva I [Conference on Syria] when it was still possible to find a balanced, gradual and peaceful solution [to the Syrian crisis] that did not include Assad. Back then ISIS did not exist and there were no deadly barrel bombs... Another opportunity came when it was proved that Assad had used gas [i.e., chemical weapons]... [But] Obama withdrew his threats [to act in Syria]… and, backed by the EU, he allowed Putin and Iran to do as they pleased, yet now he is shedding crocodile tears over the tragedy of the [Syrian] refugees...

(What Al-Hajj calls Obama's "crocodile tears" is a theme that has arisen with a vengeance in the Western press as well, an example, perhaps, of "shame" at work among Western commenters, too. In August, former Ambassador Frederic C. Hof wrote in Foreign Policy magazine about the Obama administration's "pantomime of outrage" concerning the Middle East's refugees. More recent columns by Michael Gerson ["Syria has become the graveyard of U.S. credibility"] by The New York Times' Roger Cohen ["Syria will be the biggest blot on the Obama presidency, a debacle of staggering proportions."] and by Glenn Reynolds in USA Today ["In the Middle East, everything Obama has touched has failed disastrously"] have made arguments that echo Al-Hajj's outrage. Most prominently, Fred Hiatt, the editorial-page editor of The Washington Post, wrote in a signed op-ed on September 6 that not only has the president "presided over a humanitarian and cultural disaster of epochal proportions," but that "the strategic results of Obama's disengagement have been nearly as disastrous as the human consequences.")

Left unsaid in these pieces is the germane fact that some Arab countries have taken in very large numbers of Syrian refugees. Jordan has accepted hundreds of thousands, and tiny Lebanon is overwhelmed with over a million; one-third of Lebanon's current population is estimated to consist of refugees. However, Lebanon's "boom" years didn't survive its ruinous civil war, and Jordan never enjoyed a boom at all; these are not wealthy nations. As for the rich countries of the Arab world, they have thus far refused to accept any refugees.

The Gulf Times, an English-language daily in Qatar, has harshly criticized the policy. Citing the welcoming placards greeting refugees in Austria, and the opening of homes to refugees in Germany, the paper contrasted Europe with the silence of the Gulf. "Tragically, the cash-rich Gulf countries have not yet issued a collective statement on the crisis – much less come up with a strategy to help the migrants who are overwhelmingly Muslim," the paper editorialized on September 2. In the Gulf, "the silence is deafening."

But that silence is not absolute. Back on March 17, Fahd Al-Shelaimi, a Kuwaiti and the Chairman of the Gulf Forum for Peace and Security, was interviewed by the Arabic-language service of the French news channel, France24. He was asked then why the Gulf states, including Kuwait, were refusing to take in refugees. His answer speaks for itself: "At the end of the day, you cannot accept other people, who come from a different atmosphere, from a different place… These are people who suffer from psychological problems, from trauma, and you [cannot] place them in [Gulf] societies just like that."

Al-Shelaimi, explained that "Kuwait and the Gulf countries are expensive, and are not suitable for refugees. They are suitable for workers. The transportation is expensive. The cost of living in Kuwait is high, whereas the cost of living in Lebanon or Turkey is perhaps cheaper. Therefore it is much easier to pay the refugees [to stay there]…."

    It is not simply a matter of oil rich Arab states opening their borders, they would need to change their entire culture. Syrians, or others who emigrated to places like Qatar or the UAE, and even Egypt would become de facto second class citizens - despised, abused, and largely unprotected by the civil authorities. they might be treated marginally better than the near slaves imported from Malaysia or the Phillipines, but not by much.

    No, even even those borders were open most "refugees" would still choose Europe. They look at how well the Arab world has treated the Palestinians and know what their lot would be.

  • Waffen Hans||

    "No, even even those borders were open most "refugees" would still choose Europe."

    Yes, because they will be given free shit by Germany, $400 a month roughly, who has elites that wake up every morning blaming themselves for the Jewish holocaust created, in large part, by an Austrian and carried out by the Nazi party (National Socialist German Workers Party). It's persistent guilt turned into public policy and individuals in a country a little less the size of Texas can't or unwilling to say take that narrative and shove that up your ass!

  • Win Bear||

    who has elites that wake up every morning blaming themselves for the Jewish holocaust created, in large part, by an Austrian and carried out by the Nazi party

    And they should blame themselves because the German elites today follow in the footsteps of the German elites back then.

    And while admitting large numbers of refugees seems like a nice thing at the national level, in the end, it is something that German elites impose on the German population. There may well be a massive and deadly backlash as people wake up from their initial enthusiasm and good intentions to the reality of what has happened.

    (Germans may get lucky this time around because of demographics. That is, Germany needs fresh blood and immigrants.)

  • BigT||

    Remember: "they hate us for our freedom."?

    That rings pretty hollow now. The ruling elites may hate us for our freedoms because they wouldn't dare embrace freedom in their own domains for fear of losing power. But the masses clearly recognize the value of freedom and prosperity.

    But do these people understand that the prosperity is a result of freedom? Even the West is rapidly un-learning that valuable insight.

  • ||

    "But do these people understand that the prosperity is a result of freedom? Even the West is rapidly un-learning that valuable insight."

    Correct. I blame mostly the education system which has been hijacked by progressives. They would like to see us more like the Arab world, or China and seem to be doing a pretty good job of steering us in that direction.

  • ||

    Also, I am pretty sure there are plenty of people right here in the US who hate us for our freedom.

  • bvandyke||

    Yes, the ones you blame in the paragraph before.

  • Rayson||

    Wait a few years after they have citizenship, then tell me whether they embrace the freedoms that Europe does allow (granted, freedom is in shorter supple there) or if they turn Europe into what they ran from.

    I want to be wrong on this, but when ever I reads surveys conducted on Muslims, they don't exactly make jump with joy. If no good deed goes unpunished, then I hate to see what in store for Europe.

  • ||

    I for one am truely amazed and saddened by Europe importing Muslims in these numbers. There is clear evidence as to Muslim group behavior and their willingness or unwillingness to adapt to local culture based upon their percentage of population. Simply put the larger percentage of Muslims in a society the more they try to impose their laws and behaviors on non Muslims. These is not a live and let live frame of mind.

    http://islamversuseurope.blogs.....their.html

    Europe is committing suicide led by progressive politicians and their desire to divide societies thinking they can pit them against each other and make them easier to control. They are playing with fire.

  • Merowe||

    As someone living in Germany for the last 15 years, I am saddened by the number of people prepared to offer opinions on things they know nothing about. I am also saddened by how readily gullible people can allow their emotions to be manipulated into supporting openly racist and discriminatory perspectives which have no basis in reality; perspectives which align with for example Germany's fascist party the NPD who are active in mobilizing the generally undereducated and poorer social elements into violent attacks against incoming refugees. These refugees are generally well educated middle class western-oriented people who have left prosperous and agreeable homes simply because if they do not, they will die. Its not simply the heartlessness of the perspective advanced by OneOut, it is the utter baselessness of it that is so depressing.

    Your screed reads like it was written for a speech for one of the multicultural politicians which I refer to. Do you simply go through like with your eyes closed to the realities of the Muslim world ?

    AFAICT, Dr. Hammmond's book is the source for all of that, and the good Dr. seems to be a doctor of divinity.
    Further, his book seems more a pitch for his superstition rather than any study of the other. Finally, it seems he's spent nearly his entire life as a missionary; wonder what he uses to back his "2%, 5%, 10%" claims?

    Muslims by and large are not that different from conservative European Catholics. The Church actually likes them because Muslims are a natural ally for their conservative social agenda.

  • Mencken Sense||

    They've used the 'palestinian' refugees as political fodder to maintain their hatred against Israel for generations now with absolutely no shame. They blamed the Jews for displacing these people, when it was the British who took the land during war and rightly gave conquered land (when did the Arabs ever return property they captured in war) to whoever they wished, while refusing to take them in other than to consign them to disgusting 'refugee' camps. Somehow even the rest of the world blames Israel for keeping land taken after they won wars they didn't even start.

  • ThatSkepticGuy||

    "when did the Arabs ever return return property they captured"

    Whenever I come across some Islamofascist or Useful Idiot thereof that regurgitates the "apartheid" lie, I ask them when they're going to express any concern over the far greater violent oppression over much greater spans of time by Islamists in Sudan, Mecca, Constantinople, Persia, ETC.

    All I know is, if Muslims are murdering non-Muslims as they have for centuries, it must be America's fault.

  • Merowe||

    Riiiiiight. Because NO Muslims were killed by Bush wars in the Middle East. Not one. And certainly, deliberately destroying the civil infrastructure of an entire state - water treatment, electric generation, sewage treatment - played NO role in the subsequent unravelling of Iraq and the rise of Sunni ISIS, now rampaging throughout the Middle East.

  • Suicidy||

    Funny how everyone likes to ignore the number of Iraq's slaughtered by Saddam, or the massive number Muslims murdeered by their own kind. But holy shit, Bush has some collateral damage while trying to do a good thing, and he must be the worlds' greatest villain. And there wouldn't really be a rampaging ISIS if fucking Obama hadn't worked round the clock to destabilize every part of the ideal east (and the world) he got his incompetent Marxist hands on.

    Islam is the core ideological lens of these people.

    If you give them freedom and prosperity and education, they will realize the moral imperatives baked into their faith.

    Their Central Figure murdered people for their beliefs. Either you condemn that or believe its ethically mandated.

    I get that ignorant muslims can be peaceful, because they don't grasp the ideological implications. But there is no way to prevent reasonably intelligent and educated muslims from becoming murderers. Muslim immigrants children become radicals because they are educated.

    What do you call an educated muslim? either a terrorist or a heretic.

    Heretics aren't muslim. Islam is a violation of NAP just by virtue of its incitement to murder. It's inescapable because its the behavior and call to arms of its central figure. You can't get this thinking out.

    Xtian Bible's God COMMANDS that we kill EVERYONE, if'n ye read yer Bible right!
    Xtians have gotten over it, when will the goat-fuckers do the same?!?!

    Our that them thar VALUES of society outta come from that them thar HOLY BIBLE, and if ya read it right, it actually says that God wants us to KILL EVERYBODY!!! Follow me through now: No one is righteous, NONE (Romans 3:10). Therefore, ALL must have done at least one thing bad, since they’d be righteous, had they never done anything bad. Well, maybe they haven’t actually DONE evil, maybe they THOUGHT something bad (Matt. 5:28, thoughts can be sins). In any case, they must’ve broken SOME commandment, in thinking or acting, or else they'd be righteous. James 2:10 tells us that if we've broken ANY commandment, we broke them ALL. Now we can’t weasel out of this by saying that the New Testament has replaced the Old Testament, because Christ said that he’s come to fulfill the old law, not to destroy it (Matt. 5:17). So we MUST conclude that all are guilty of everything. And the Old Testament lists many capital offenses! There’s working on Sunday. There’s also making sacrifices to, or worshipping, the wrong God (Exodus 22:20, Deut. 17:2-5), or even showing contempt for the Lord’s priests or judges (Deut. 17:12). All are guilty of everything, including the capital offenses. OK, so now we’re finally there... God’s Word COMMANDS us such that we’ve got to kill EVERYBODY!!!

    Fanatical collectivism became obsolete on August 6, 1945. This lesson has taken a long time to sink in. A Ted Cruz-style Berlin Wall went up to preserve it in 1961, but that didn't last 30 years. Communism and Christianity are losing market share to rational thinking, but mystical jihadists are perhaps doomed to find out the hard way that superstition is no match for physics. Milton Friedman pointed out that the freedom of choice and the coercion of unreason are mutually exclusive. Only one out of six American parties has fully grasped this truth in the past 43 years. How reasonable is it to expect the politicians of the Middle East to come to grips with reality any faster?

    I'm pretty sympathetic to Hungary. They have a population of 10 million. They have a couple of million running their borders. That is 20% of their population. Let's see how Germany would feel if they had 15 million immigrants run their borders over a three month stretch.

    Yet guaranteed that those 11 million immigrants are home to the next wave of terrorist attackers upon the west, just as they were the source of the 9/11 hijackers, even though their nationality was Saudi, almost entirely, their copy cats were not and were largely european in origin, up to and including the Charlie Hebdo attackers and the Paris train attackers. These newest immigrants will not assimilate. They will stay in their mosques, mosques that will be paid for by the Saudis in their scheme of colonization, learning only arabic, farsi, pashtun, with a smattering of the language of the country that they have gained residency or even citizenship in, and being taught from the cradle, just like in the madrassas of their homelands, how to hate the westerner, how to blame him and her for the various problems befallen the Dar al Islam, how to assault and shame western women and to murder muslim girls who try to emulate their western friends for imagined slights against honor, until eventually these youths of fortune and fate will launch another jihad upon the west from within Europe, upon Europe, and Europe will buckle and beg. They have not learned the lesson taught by the American soldiers who saved a trainload of French from a lone attacker. Nor will they until it has become a bloodbath, and just like in 1939, they capitulate to the aggressor.

Communism, Nationalsocialism and Mohammedanism are all of them deeply rooted in that altruism and self-deception we refer to as religion. Small wonder they reject reason and logic and cling tenaciously to the initiation of force. It may be time to reopen some old Nathaniel Branden centers with scholarships to deprogram folks so they may be rendered fit to live in a civilized society. Then again, Good Old Populists would immediately attack the implementation as a "War Against" religion. After all, their own armed brainwashees regard sacrificing the police officers shot enforcing moronic laws at home as a good and necessary thing, and sending youth to bomb the Ottomans as "nation building."

    What's wrong with arming and sending back the males of military age to free their own countries? When Nixon's "Moral Majority" took over These States, more people crossed into Canada than the other way, and Weathermen blew stuff up until the LP formed with a better alternative. But if another wave of Landover Baptists again takes over America, Mexico would likely hand us weapons and send us back through the tunnels to reclaim our freedom. After all, loss of freedom (excessive coercion) is always the reason behind crowds of fleeing refuges.

It appears that they are the ones, over there, who are in fear of their lives! Is your claim, of fearing the Christians, not just the opposite of what logic dictates?!

    We should leave and let them kill each other. If they ever get tired of doing that, perhaps they will become more civilized.

    It is a big crisis of humanity. Why Arab nation is in crisis for so many years? It is a war of only handful of people, but millions of people suffering including innocent children and women. Huge number of immigrants moving towards safe shelters. These problems have become so common that nations and people around the globe do not pay serious attention, sometimes it looks like it has become small news for us. Why our planet is becoming so unsafe place. To me the best way to live your life and let other people to live their lives with their choice. When you interfere in some other country with power to gain your benefits these types of problems usually rises up. I am planning to buy lots of used items from http://clickob.com/ send to the victims of Syria in particular. At least in this way I can satisfy my own quest to help others needy people.
