Update 27 Jan 2017: As a result of Trump's restrictions on Muslim immigration there has been an explosion of celebrities and politicians claiming that this is exactly like banning Jewish refugees during WW2. Moreover, even uglier is the suggestion in, of all things, a video by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (today is Holocaust Day) that 'prejudice' against Muslims in the West is analogous to the murder of 6 million Jews.
Update: 10 years a ago a very different international reaction to a refugee crisis
*Number of countries that are signatories to UNHRC convention on refugees and asylum seekers
** BBC report says each refugee costs £50,000 per annum the UK
***Pew Poll of 2015 showed 63% of Muslims want to live under sharia law
****Jews who fled Muslim antisemitism in Algeria and Morocco for France have now been forced to flee France mainly because of Muslims immigrants (especially from Algeria and Morocco). Almost all the current surge of antisemitism throughout European is due to Muslim immigrants.
*****The wealthy Arab Sunni Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and UAE have been the principle funders of the various wars yet have taken 0 Sunni refugees. And of course Shia Muslim Iran has played the biggest external role in all of the wars and has taken 0 Shia refugees. Meanwhile one minority who deserves refugee status - the Kurds - are being stopped by Turkey from getting a safe haven in their own lands. The other minorities like the Christians and Yazidis (who make up a very small minority) are of course not covered by the above and should be taken in by Christian countries.
Also note that for Syrian refugees Israel remains enemy #1, while 3 out of 4 Syrians support Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists.
UPDATE: The important article here by David Semple gives an indication of the ramifications of importing Muslim refugess into UK cities. While, Daphne Anson has a very good summary of the bias of western TV channels in their reporting on the refugee crisis. Pay special attention to this video.
