    I honestly doubt it, the only Muslim nations which have the resources and capacity to aid aren't even helping their own brothers out - UAE, Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar etc.. Why on earth would they help anyone else?

    I'm not going to pretend to know a lot about this, but weren't these Asians from colonised states? Rather than individuals fighting of their own accord?
    Most were from our old colonies but all were volunteers, none were conscripts.

    Europe as a 'geopolitical entity' didn't exist at this point in history so to call them European Jews is wrong
    Stop being pedantic. It is completely reasonable to refer to geographical regions by what they are called in the modern day.

    and it blames the whole of Europe for this rather then the actual countries involved
    No it doesn't - you gigantic bell-end. Not to mention that I specified which countries they were fleeing from in that post.

    No it's not it's dishonest

    You are trying to say the Ottomans were better than the Europeans because they saved the 'European' Jews

    as I said this is dishonest

    But can see your debating style is the equivalent of the pissed bloke shouting at cars so I'll leave it there

    Thanks for the strawman. I didn't say that the Ottomans were better than the Europeans nor do I believe it. I'm done with you.

    I think they would. In spite of what people think, most Muslims are decent human beings and I think when it really comes down to most people help those in need regardless of their background. People tend to come together when they need to.

    And frankly so what if they wouldn't take us? Compassion should be given without expecting things in return.

    Clearly evidenced by the generosity of most of the Arab gulf states in letting in so many refugees.

    Oh wait.

    Yes, they were paid because we were and still are incapable of fighting our own wars.

    It could be argued they made better Brits than the Brits. We had to fight but they chose to fight. How many people here have served their country. I'd wager hardly any.

    Point proven. FTW.

    "Arab gulf states" being the keyword.

    Nations let refugees in, not individual people.
