While the UnitedStates and Europe argue over how many Syrian refugees to allow in, the richestPersian Gulf states have accepted exactly zero.

The Muslim countriesof the Gulf Cooperation Council that include Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia,Bahrain and United Arab Emirates steadfastly refuse to accept any Syrianrefugees. Amnesty International, USA (AIUSA) tells The Daily Caller NewsFoundation they have not accepted a single refugee since the armed Syrianconflict erupted years ago.

“The Gulf States haveaccepted zero refugees registered with the United Nations and administeredthrough the U.N. resettlement program. They have accepted zero,” Geoffrey Mock,the Syrian country coordinator for AIUSA, tells TheDCNF.

And in case you think this is just some random anomaly, please be aware that none of these countries will accept Palestinian Arabs who want to emigrate there and become citizens either.

These facts are worth remembering when you hear complaints that the west does not care about the plight of Arab Muslims.  

Would it be fair to say that few people care less about the plight of Arab Muslims than other Arab Muslims?

You tell me.
