Saudi Arabia has 100,000 air-conditioned tents sitting empty, still won’t take Syrian refugees

As Saudi Arabia faces mounting criticism for refusing to take in any of the millions of Syrians fleeing conflict in their homeland, it was revealed this weekend that the country has over 100,000 empty, air-conditioned tents that could house up to 3 million refugees.

The tents, located roughly 2,150 miles from Syria in the city of Mina, are only used a few days a year to house pilgrims on their way to Mecca for the hajj, the news station TeleSUR reported.

    The Saudis have turned their noses down on their own people, why would they let anyone immigrate to their Kingdom? Fix the problem with Assad, like kicking him out like you did Qaddafi -muerto! and his dictatorship that was threatened then no action taken by the kenyan, then ISIS feels even more empowered to wreak havoc on the whole region! All because the criminal in the WH wanted to have a few hundred thousand killed by his breathren Muslims!!

      Obama killed Qaddafi so he could ship arms from #Benghazi to Syria (via smuggled from Turkey), then had his band of ragheads murder our Ambassador as part of conspiracy & cover-up with Clinton. Is why Hillary has 5 month gap of erased #emails from her private server!!

        Yes agreed!… and isn’t it hypocritical to do all the gun running he does like in “fast and furious” giving the drug lords, Iraq giving OUR guns, etc to ISIS by abandoning them in the field when withdrawing w/o any support for the Iraqi’s attempt at self rule? He knows exactly what he was doing, creating as much confusion as possible so his Muslim brothers could take over in those countries. His methods are crude and right in your face, and nobody in the media says a thing about his real motives. I would love to see his and Clinton’s bank records, public and private when all these criminal acts took place, some of which are still going on…? Treasonous criminals, both of them!
