Arab countries must work together with European countries in helping displaced migrants

A London based news from Independent.co.uk said last week that Saudi Arabia has reportedly responded to the growing number of migrants fleeing the Middle East for Western Europe - by offering to build 200 mosques in Germany.
The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, which picked the report from the Lebanese newspaper Al Diyar said, Saudi Arabia would build those mosques for refugees who entered Germany in extra-ordinary numbers in last weekend, reports a local English daily on September 12.
We can't ascertain the authenticity of the report, but it is also true that Arab rulers are not doing anything to save their people. The report further said Syria's richer Gulf neighbours have been  accused of not doing their fair share in the humanitarian crisis, with Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the UAE keeping their doors firmly shut to asylum-seekers.
The refugees are swarming Europe from Syria, Iraq and Libya along with some other Asian and African countries ravaged by civil war.
Arab refugees have created the biggest post Second World War migration crisis for Europe with daily stream of arrivals by thousands breaking their borders in desperate attempts to move out to safety.
They are running through forest and cornfields in Hungary to escape from police baton and animal like treatment. As Hungary has blocked its border with high-rise wall and barbed wire and stopped passage of the stream of migrants to Austria and Germany, desperate people have curbed out new routes through Croatia and Bulgaria towards the north.  
Meanwhile several thousands have already drowned in the Mediterranean Sea in their desperate bid to reach the Italian coast and Greece coast and the media image of the three-year Syrian boy who drowned in the Turkish coast hit the conscience of the global community with fresh call for more efforts to save the Arab migrants.
Around five lakhs people have so far entered Europe and Germany is the single largest country which received over 100 refugees per hour recently overcrowding the country's asylum system and other institutional facilities to give shelter to those people.
Chancellor Angela Markel has announced her country would receive 800,000 refugees this year and the overall figures would be much more in the next few years. Europe is trying to distribute the refugees to find home to the homeless Arab refugees.
But the Arab countries denying their humanitarian  responsibility to come to the help of their fellow Muslims displaced from their countries and taking shelter in European countries most pathetically. These countries have god-given wealth still the leaders of these countries are not moved by the call of God to help the humanity in distress.
All these rich Muslim countries spend billion of dollars on buying weapons to fight each other. The Arab leaders do not know how foolish and heartless they look at this time by not offering visible help to the Muslims migrant. The Islamic State (IS) has made its debut threatening the stability of the established political system in the region. In fact the royals and emirs of the ruling families in the region are always suspicious of their neighbours and trust the West more than their own people. So they have kept their door closed from giving shelter to homeless people and even to give humanitarian assistance to them, except to those of their political linkage.
The region is mainly apprehensive of young people who are also anti-royalists in many cases. So when Arabs are drowning in the sea and being given shelter in many European countries and when the news of conversion to Christianity is also in the air, the Arab monarchs can at best build some mosques for them and that's all; it is though unbelievable. But their lavish life style and callous waste of wealth should not have made them so indifferent to the needs of the migrants and work together with European countries to ally their suffering.
