    of 75,000,000 has taken in a million Iraqi refugees. Jordan, which has fewer than 9 million citezens, yet they have taken in almost 2 million refugees.

    These countries are not know for their extensive social safety nets. Much of the money to support these refugees comes from the UN and outside donors.

    But the Turks and Jordanians do nor shirk in their duty to aid those in need. Perhaps this is a reflection of the Muslim preaching, very clearly put forth by Muhammed that one should not eat while your neighbor is hungry.

    I think Jesus Christ said many similar teachings, but too many Christians focus on Leviticus to the detriment of understanding the New Testament.

     At times like this, I would hope all Americans, or at least all Progressives would want to do everything within their power to help these children and their mothers. I suspect that this is only the beginnin of this exodus from the growing Hellscape that is Central America.

    Since the US did a lot to create this humanitarian disaster back in the 80's and 90' it is very much our job to comfort the victims of those policies.

    Here's my take on it - the revolution will not be blogged, it has to be slogged. - Deoliver47
