Mapping Where The 13 Million Displaced Syrians Are

While the stock market seems to believe the worst is over, one-and-done-and-everyone-crawls-back-in-their-hole, we suspect the ordeal that the Syrian people are dealing with is far from over and could lead to an even greater spike in the number of displaced Syrians, 13 million of whom are now scattered all over the world.

That's according to a Pew Research Center analysis published in January. Statista's Niall McCarthy notes that Pew's analysis found that over 6 million Syrians are displaced within their own country and they account for 49 percent of all Syrians displaced worldwide.

Turkey has the second highest population with 3.4 million displaced people currently living there.

Another million of them have made the long and dangerous journey to Europe. Germany hosts most of them with 530,000, followed by Sweden with 110,000. Another 54,000 Syrians live in Canada while 33,000 are in the United States.

Which invasion of Iraq do you speak of? Alexander invaded that area centuries ago. Iraq didn't exist as a country until 1958 when it overthrew the monarchy created by the U.K. But what happened in between those 2 events was Islam and the split between the Sunni and Shiites over who could be considered a Like anyone has the ability to speak to a deity. You really don't believe that that cult split is the reason for the fighting that has occurred there in the last few years? Oh please do tell what started it then. How do you account for the war within the borders of a sovereign state if the people there were all aligned in ideology and culture.

One of the best info graphics I've ever seen.... So they are still in Syria & 1mm next door in Turkey but NevEr mind they are 1/2 orthodox Christians. And that's really why Putin has standing there..and Jews in Israel don't-- because the Christians in Syria have never threatened the Jews in Israel. But let's just pretend that all those Christians are radical Muzzies, so we can bomb the shit out of 'me.

Mostly true I'd say: Ahskenazis are related via their genetics more to Turkmen (form Khazaria) and Semitic people are Palestinians, Syrians, Lebanese and also non-Ashkenazi Jews. The again, playing the race card anywhere does not help, although the Jewish people play it often enough. That's why they are often accused of racism.

Islam is not compatible with any other religion or form of government.  Every muslim we let into the USA is one more nail in the coffin...

True. But you should put it this way:


For muslims, the Koran has all the wisdom, so parliaments and lawmaking is superfluous. Laws can be struck out, changed, updated - whatever. There is no such thing as Sharia Law. It's edicts, dictates, or ukases. We want to make our own laws, we do not need an old book to dictate to us.

...and this has nothing to do with the fact since oil was prized,  people living in the dessert multiplied for a 100 years with a tremendous amount of wealth as compared to their resources, save the one.   Where are they going to go?  Look at the five top oil producers for 2017.  the US, SA, RU, CH and CA.

I love the new Trumptard meme that the bombing in Syria was no big deal, especially since I remember the same Trumptards complaining about Syrian refugees before when a certain Zero was at the helm of no big deal bombings.  But this time is different because "Mission Accomplished."

Muhamad married 15 women including the 9 year old Aisha, and had 4 concubines. Did some slave trading, assassinations, wars and other crimes as well. So, what do you think his follower will do if they decide to really follow him in his footsteps?
