ATHENS (Reuters) - Syrian shopkeeper Osama fled the fighting in Aleppo convinced he would be welcomed in Europe. Five months later, he is stuck in near-bankrupt Greece, where money and sympathy are scarce.
Beaten up and robbed by traffickers when they arrived in Athens, Osama, his wife and two children were arrested as illegal immigrants and thrown into detention when they recounted their ordeal to Greek police. Ordered out of Greece but without any place to go, he rues the day he set foot in the country.

Fleeing war, Syrians face new misery in Greece - Yahoo! News

Ok: tho Osama's family have real GOOD reason to get out of Syria; why go to Greece? I'd try for another Arab country where at least they have the same culture and language.
