Offer asylum instead of bombing IS

The terrorist IS militia is now being bombarded but no one has a plan for what to do with the refugees from Syria, Kate Allen, director of Amnesty International, criticises in the left-liberal daily The Independent: "Syria is facing the world's biggest humanitarian crisis, and its neighbouring countries can't manage on their own. Around the world, despite the politicians' promises, the response has been woeful. EU countries have taken less than one percent of Syria's refugees, the UK has resettled a grand total of 51 people. As I left Lebanon a government adviser said to me 'Don't tell us to keep our borders open, while you close yours'. It's a remark that ought to be reverberating around Downing Street as the generals explain to David Cameron how they're going to 'destroy' Syria's Isis fighters."
