The migrant crisis going on in Syria and Europe right now is a serious issue that has called much of the world to action. What are countries to do? Is there a deeper agenda at play here? Who should countries let in and is it truly their duty to open their borders in the first place? These are the many questions that have been raised since the start of this migrant issue, and they have sparked debate at every level of society.
Many believe that the refugee situation in Europe could be solved quite easily if countries were to work together to solve the challenge, but is it in their best interests to do so? While that question seems insane given the fact that operating with the intention to make the world a better place, serve others, and create peace feels great, the leaders of our world (beyond government) may not see things that way.
So far there have been some interesting solutions put forth by people and countries attempting to improve the situation. Many countries are offering up the opportunity for people to come and seek safety there, while people like Naguib Sawiris play with the idea of buying an island to help house refugees.
I would argue that the refugee crisis in Europe has a fairly obvious solution. The problem is that this course of action would not suit the political establishment of the United States or Western Europe. has put together an interesting set of steps that we could take to help solve the migrant crisis — if our world leaders decided to act on them. As they mention “We’ve distilled what needs to be done into 5 simple steps.” They’ve also put together a great video below that sums up the steps in further detail.

1. Stop funding and arming rebel groups attempting to overthrow the Syrian government. As Putin stated, over 40 countries are funding ISIS right now, and these business dealings are not only unethical but also wholly counterproductive when you consider the fact that we are, at the very same time, trying to “stop terrorism.” It is well established that these weapons have been ending up in the hands of ISIS and its affiliates. This has caused nothing but chaos and destruction. Money being funneled into these shady operations should be immediately redirected to an intensive reconstruction effort.

Recently, a number of politicians, academics, and more gathered at the International Conference on the New World Order, which was organized and sponsored by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation, to discuss this topic. You can find out more about that here.

2. Pressure Turkey and Jordan to cut off ISIS supply routes, and impose sanctions on any country facilitating the sale of oil from IS territory or allowing funds or materials to reach them. No army can function if their supply chain is broken. It’s not an accident these routes start at the Turkish and Jordanian borders.

3. Support the Syrian government. An entire year of U.S. airstrikes in Syria has utterly failed to destroy or even significantly weaken ISIS. Of course this is because the real strategy isn’t to bring ISIS down, but rather to contain them and allow them to weaken Assad gradually. If Washington really wanted to stop this group, they would take a hint from Russia and provide the Syrian government with weapons, training, and logistical support to enable them to push ISIS back. This means Washington and its allies would have to officially abandon all plans for a forced regime change. They might not like Assad, but the majority of the citizens of Syria support him. In fact he has more support within his country than Obama or the U.S. congress have in America. And at various intervals he’s had more support than Congress and Obama combined. Any government installed after a U.S. backed regime change will be viewed as a puppet government, and will therefore lack the legitimacy needed to stabilize the region. If you need evidence of this, just look at Afghanistan or Iraq.

4. Provide direct assistance to rebuild housing, infrastructure, and businesses destroyed by the conflict. In the short term, temporary refugee camps should be set up in areas outside of the conflict zone, and food and medical supplies shipped in on a regular basis. Yes this will cost money, but so has the five year regime change push that created the problem in the first place.

5. Return the refugees to these stabilized regions. It is in no one’s interest to flood Europe with masses of unemployed refugees. Doing so will only lead to heightened tensions and will strengthen xenophobic movements. These people don’t need to be transplanted into the ghettos of Europe, they need their homes back.

What These World Events Show Us

Finally we look at our world and what is happening. We are being pushed to become a less politically driven, more emotionally reactive society, and we can see evidence of this in so many of the actions that are unfolding around the globe. The more we become attached to and distracted by what the media is telling us in terms of lies that are passed down by politicians (which are fabricated to further corporate agendas), the more we start to divide as people on this planet. We’ve become so consumed by the idea of countries, races, political beliefs, and other manmade (and inherently divisive) labels that we’ve forgotten we are actually one species living on this planet together.

When you bring it back to humanity, back to us, back to who we are, and you generate a level of awareness of what is playing out, you begin to see beyond the trickery at hand and you also begin to realize what truly needs to be done. And that is a shift in consciousness to be a more loving and community-focused set of beings who respond to events logically and compassionately rather continuing to respond fearfully, as we have done for so long. It’s part of our collective evolution.
