Help for North Africa needed

Commenting on the flood of Tunisian refugees on the Italian island Lampedusa, the tabloid Bild calls on the West to provide financial support for the countries of North Africa: "Today's tumbling despots will certainly be followed by others, and that puts the onus of responsibility on the West. We must help the refugees. This is not only our humanitarian duty, it is essential to maintain stability in these regions. Certainly, providing help on location will cost money. But every euro that we scrimp today will multiply when the problems come our way one day. The world has grown too small for us to avert our eyes and cower away at home, far removed from the goings on outside."
