United Nations Makes Migrant Crisis Worse with Loose Rhetoric

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon insisted, in a statement released on September 8th, that European nations open their doors to the many thousands of Middle Easterners and North Africans said to be “fleeing war and violence, who have a right to seek asylum without any form of discrimination.” The statement said that he had called the leaders of Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia to emphasize “the individual and collective responsibility of European states to respond responsibly and humanely” to the migration crisis.

Notably, there was nothing in the Secretary General’s statement calling for the wealthy Gulf State countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, to welcome the refugees fleeing Syria and Iraq, for example, to their countries.
