TEHRAN (FNA)- More than four years ago, Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned the United States, Europe and their regional allies of the high price they would eventually pay for supporting terrorists to affect regime change in Syria.
The coalition of regime changers ignored his historic warning then. They are paying the price now:
Leaving behind at least five million refugees in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq, some 200,000 refugees – most of them Syrians – have already crossed the Mediterranean Sea between Turkey and Greece. Tens of thousands are now undertaking a dramatic march or bus journey towards Austria and Germany. They seek safety and relief from a treacherous journey that has now captured the attention of the world.
It is testimony to everything that has gone wrong since the US-led coalition and terrorist proxies unleashed the devastating war on Syria. Little did they know the interwoven cycle of violence, chaos and displacement would know no borders. The refugee crisis, once confined to Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan, is now rapidly spreading throughout Europe.
Interestingly, British leaders and the media keep telling us this unprecedented movement of people needs a “German solution”. Despite the tepid response, they are in for a shock. Soon tens of thousands of young men and women, children in strollers, elderly people in wheelchairs, and people on crutches will reach the border town of Calais in France. They will then try to break through barriers to reach Britain, and that is when the Downing Street will realize the worst refugee crisis in Europe also needs a “British solution”.
The same could be said about the rich Persian Gulf Arab states. Their leaders speak passionately about the plight of Syrians. Yet as millions of Syrian refugees languish elsewhere and many have risked their lives to reach Europe or died along the way, they have looked the other way. For obvious reasons, Syrian refugees would never try to go to these countries. But that’s not the point. The point is that Saudi Arabia, Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain, which are mourning for their troops, also share the sin…
European Union’s border agency Frontex says in July 2015 alone, over 100,000 refugees made it to Europe. The United Nations estimates 300,000 have left the region, while Germany says it expects up to 800,000 refuges by the end of the year. This means more waves of refugees will reach Europe as regional conflicts force people to flee. This also means the so-called advocates of human rights can no longer afford to show a staggering lack of political will and humanity to grapple with the crisis.
At a time when people of good conscience have taken to the streets in several European cities to show solidarity with “regime change” refugees, European leaders have no choice but to consider some immediate humanitarian response to the massive influx. However, protecting lives and ensuring humane treatment is not the solution to this messed-up situation. The ultimate solution is to stop their silly campaign for regime change in Syria and Yemen.
