    Why are the migrants heading West when there are many rich countries in the middle east geographically closer to where they are fleeing from. Are their intentions to dominate the West for Jihad, why don't they go to the rich economies that are closer to where they are so they can go back to fix the country when the conflict finishes up.

    From what I hear these countries do not welcome migrants.

    Arabs hate each other. You could literally die on the street and nobody will bother to help. My brother was hit by a car couple of weeks ago.. Nobody helped him, he came walking home. (he had a broken knee)

    Probably because they do not get guaranteed a minimum standard of living in those countries, its all well and good saying they can go to countries such as Qatar which are rich- but in Qatar are they guranteed free health care and benefits ( I know there is a clause for 4 years now) but the majority came here before that change became effective. Britain pays 7% of the worlds welfare budget- this is quite high considering there is around 200 countries in the world. The short answer is that the GDP per capita may be higher in those countries but it doesn't mean they are guaranteed good wages or a minimum standard of living in those countries, so it is easier to get to England and then moan about the English social values

    The western countries pay them more in benefits give them a passport and buy them a million pound council house - it's a no brainer.
