To get to Germany’s promised land, he walked for eight hours into Turkey and took a gruelling 20-hour ride in a crammed and stinking lorry across south-east Europe.
But now Mohammed Aziz Qadir, an Iraqi Kurd, has returned home, one of scores of refugees who have decided that facing perils and hardships in Iraq is preferable to the ordeal of a transit camp in an unwelcoming Europe

When Iraq is better than German refugee camps: A growing number of refugees are going back - Business Insider

Good; maybe a LOT more of those people will get the word home is better.

I think it is rather inhumane that the world is letting these people make such a treacherous trip. We all saw the terrible photos of the dead child washed up on shore and now we are hearing about fighting and riots starting in the refugee camps. Europe opens its arms for these people and they don't seem to appreciate it much.

My question is why doesn't the UN setup camps for the refugees in their own country? They could setup a safe zone and when the fighting is done they can all head back home? It would save lives and save a reluctant Europe from not doing enough to help the influx of people.

The "world" NEEDS to jump on the Gulf Arabs to step up and take care of their brothers and sisters, NOT the "infidel" 1st World.
