Allow us to open our houses to refugees from Syria.
Why is this important?
Syrian refugees are leaving their beloved country due to the civil war and pressure from Assad and ISIS. Syrian nationals are experiencing persecution and genocide , depending on race and faith. In World War Two Britain offered sanctuary to thousands of Jews fleeing persecution. Once again we should open our country and our homes to these people. This is a global humanitarian crisis. These are not economic migrants: they are refugees of a crisis of which Britain is partly responsible. We owe it to these people, as fellow humans , to extend sanctuary as relief from their suffering. It is purely by chance that they were born in Syria and we in the UK. Were the situation to be reversed we would hope the same from them.
