This winter marks yet another long period of coldness and misery for millions of displaced Syrians. In Iraq, Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan large numbers of Syrians are refugees -- though we prefer to call them “guests” here in Turkey. I would like to ask some tough questions: When will Arab nations give these noble people full access to schools, hospitals, and employment? Will the EU countries and the U.S. get involved in the process of integration, education and recruitment of Syrian refugees? Every indication points to the fact that Syria will not be stable or fully habitable anytime soon if that is what the Arab countries are expecting. What provisions are we making to integrate the displaced Syrians into the Middle Eastern societies as full citizens?
