Jordan opens desert camp for Syrian refugees    Reuters
1. Oh my!
Metal structures in 115 degree F heat. And such lovely razor wire. The Jordanians are quite thoughtful. "Element of normality?" Oh, please! Schools, hospital, grocery stores; all fenced in by barbed wire and razor wire. No one's going to be allowed out, except to return to Syria. On the bright side -- if they built it once; they can build it again -- for all the Jordanian citizens who will be repatriated to Jordan by the State of Israel when Judea and Samaria are annexed.

2. An economic boost for Jordan's rulers.
How can you beat it?Just shove a load of refugees into the desert and rake off as much of the international aid that'll have to support them as you can get away with. I confidently predict that these unfortunate people will be refugees for a long,long time and they can give up any hope of Jordanian citizenship.A new apartheid. Could there be a clue here to why there are still 'Palestinian' 'refugees' living in camps in Arab League countries? THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!

and there they will stay for a long time as Syrians and others kill and destroy Syria. conditions will become worse as funds dry up and hosts tire of visitors. these people will not be allowed into EU or NA. other Moslem states should offer more aid and refuge but wont. another Palestinian situation in progress. camps all over Moslem ME for along time. human misery over religious values.
